  1. Looks like Punxatawney Phil was right about not having an early spring. I had been doubting his abiltiies.

  2. No worries Spring is < 18 days from now. If we consult the hedonistic adjustments to seasonal (forecasted) temperature records. Furthermore by spending carbon tax credits we should be able to warm the place up to 90F or more by March 20th…

    • nope! Those are the same people that have been telling you that snow is a thing of the past. But to liberals – when it snows in their town, it’s hot outside LOL

    • At least all this Snow, Ice, Sleet and Hail is WARMER than it used to be………………………………………It’s warm snow, folks, warm…….

  3. CNY, USA. We got maybe 1-1.5 ft. Woohoo! Still nothing like when I was little. And the stories my parents tell of harsher winters here. You haven’t seen anything yet. We are natural preppers and raised to be that way…it’s so ingrained, we have anxiety not to prep: store firewood and food for the worst winter has to bring. I feel bad for the people who have no clue, and never were taught how to prepare, Their only knowledge is mild winters. They drive around with bald tires and no hats or mittens in their cars…tragedy waiting to happen. This snow was great; we need some more…it’s good for the land.
