Crazy weather !!!!!

I've been reading the reports of the blizzard for the East coasters, again. This is just nuts this year. The southern half of the country has been pommeled by the strangest weather in decades most of it unseasonably cold. I'm not convinced of global warming anymore ....
I don't see any of the regulars on here today/night and hope that all are safe and warm. Many out there are without power and that just concerns me for peoples safety and ability to survive with no heat.
California may not fall in the ocean from an earthquake but it just might wash in from all the rain. I've said for years I'd like to get out of the snowbelt but seeing the weather lately, I'm in the best spot of the country right now.
Ya'll take care out there and be safe.......

My brother just east of Pittsburgh has 30 inches of snow. He's got his driveway shoveled off, but can't go anywhere. The roads are all closed. Fortunately he has heat.

My 87 YO Grandfather in Johnstown Pa. has heat but is stuck in the house till someone can get to him to shovel him out. They got 4 feet of snow. He has plenty of food and such so he's ok till.

I guess I'm not going to complain about temps in the 40's.

Weird winter for sure. Kind of reminds you of the winter of 1976 when we were in a global cooling spell and they were talking about the coming ice age and how it would kill man. That was man made too. Because of polution too. Let the wackos be wackos and just ignore them.

Hahaha, global warming. The planet we live on has cycles or periods like a woman. She has warm and cold periods because of a change in orbits, scientist has proven that the sea levels used to be higher than what they are now. Someone told me that they heard something on TV that we are no longer in a "Global Warming" state. Who knows, its nothing we can do about it.


Ohh yeah the weather is something this is the wetest winter we had since 05. We didn't get snow yet like last year.

I was thinking of you, Rich. I figured you would be stuck in Atlanta or somewhere along the way. Stuck in Aruba isn't so bad....

Yes, there is another storm supposed to go thru here today and tomorrow. It doesn't appear to be a threat to you getting your butt back to the frozen north and work again thou....

It still gets plenty cold here as usual, but unlike the past two winters where we've had record snowfall, we've had very little here all season. Big snowstorm in mid December, not much snow after that, then the January thaw where most of the snow melted, and it has yet to really be replaced. There's maybe 2" of snow in my yard as of today. We've gotten maybe 30" all season, maybe.

Though, the past two winters were very unusual with the high snow amounts, as this winter is more typical with just really cold temperatures and not much snow.
