    Heck, I made 70-80 bucks back in the 80s as a kid each snowstorm -- with with five-six good snowstorms a year, that was pretty good money for a 12 year old kid.

    You forgot shorts for the obligatory slide in the snow (if it is the first of the year)...

    For those hoping for change in DC areas, the climate provided it! Betcha all you Obama voters still cannot believe..if you live in DC metro areas....that the biggest change to your life more than a year after the Messiah's inaug would be the climate....getting even colder and dumping 3 feet of snow on your global warming theories.

    Think we need to send the President back to Copenhagen?

    If you want to troll about climate, then start a thread about climate. This is a thread about the weather, which is not the same thing. Please leave this thread, and take your pot-stirring attitude elsewhere.

    The entire thread is about a snowstorm of good size in the Mid-atlantic region of the US only. That's a discussion on weather, climate is a broader issue. I'll not leave, rather, continue the dialogue.

    And it's hillarious that weeks after Copenhagen and weeks after news comes to the front that this man made global warming message isn't true, Mother Nature seemingly reminds us of that exact fact by blanketing the White House with 3 feet of snow, blizzard like conditions, government shut down, and Obama and the rest of the climaters with egg on their faces.

    I think this most relevant and my attitude needs no change.

    Next.

    Hold on here, D!

    I apologize and stand corrected.

    Here you are earlier...posting on weath....er.....climate. Certainly your timely post here on the song let it snow addresses climate..and not weather.

    What say we both take the role of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer's good friend Yukon Cornelius. You eat what you eat, I'll eat what I eat.

    Obama needs to bail out the snow plows.


    25 percent of D.C. plows out of commission - wtop.com


    As the region braces for another major storm, one local government is having trouble keeping their plows on the roads, WTOP has learned.

    As many as 60 of the District's snow plows are not working -- bad news for thousands of residents still waiting for their streets to be cleared.

    According to an internal email obtained by WTOP, 25 percent of the District's snow plow fleet is down and they're having trouble getting replacement parts.

    D.C. is also now rationing their salt supply.

    Watching the news right now. Another 10-20 inches of snow coming to the Eastern US. February 2010 is going to be remembered for a very long time.

    You make an ignorant inference that a localized weather phenomenon means global warming isn't real and documented and you want to be taken seriously? I could make the same stupid argument that the entire globe is warming just because Canada is experiencing a mild winter, but it wouldn't make it necessarily true.


    NASA: 2009 tied for 2nd-warmest year, 00s hottest decade too

    Note: I know the thread is about localized weather but i can't leave ignorant statements like this unchallenged.
