    Storm threatens 100 million in US with snow, ice, cold

    CHICAGO – A mammoth storm threatens to dump mounds of fresh snow, sleet and ice on about 100 million already winter-weary people from the US heartland to the east coast, forecasters said Monday.
    Here in Houston, it was 70 yesterday. Right now, it is about 39. Quite a drop. We will be having some snow on Friday. Haven't seen that in years. I will try to take a picture of it before it melts, which should take about 10 minutes. LOL.

    Anybody here have any stories about the ongoing storm they would like to share?

    Article is here.

    PS - I decided to make my link one to a political site, just in case anybody would like to blame the storm on either Obama or Bush.

    I just want to say, I am not impressed with this storm. We tend to get a lot worse. We North Dakotans would get on the news every month or every other month if they cared, and we would be on every other week if we followed even the smallest amount of the coast's whining.

    In Mansfield, La., this morning it was 65. 15 minutes later it was 45 and it's supposed to be in the high teens/low 20's tonight.

    I'll be glad when that ****ing global warming kicks in.

    This one is missing me this time ... which is fine. It seems as though it's affecting more people but I'm not sure it's bigger storm than either of the last two or three Nor'easters that hit the East Cost over the past month.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Bring it on!
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    More life threatening than pretty much anything we see today...

    About as much as they do now, because we are softer.

    No way. People starved to death in the plains states during storms like this. They got lost going to the woodpile and froze to death. We are softer, but we also have the means to soften the blow of storms like this.
