  1. Is it me or does the weather channel seem more clueless than normal. In Central NY, high winds all night last night…no one said we were getting that, but I am not surprised…how will they twist their words when they can’t deny the truth anymore? That should be entertaining in itself. I’m actually looking forward to the “old fashioned” winters returning. Send some of these city folk out of here; they gobbled up our beautiful farms and turned them into acres of lawn, and let our historical hay barns fall down. It’s a shame. Now lots of huge lawns and useless diva horses that no one rides. Makes no sense. Don’t complain about high gas prices when you mow 6+ acres of lawn every week…I hope they go higher(just kidding)…bring back the cows! Do Inuits ever worry about the tax man? I bet no one bothers them…too cold, but I’m sure they enjoy their wilderness and peace.
