I wish I could get back to Attitash, or Killington...Miss the powder...

Attitash, Cannon, Wildcat, Gunstock, Sunnapee, all have about 2 feet of fresh powder.
Mid 30's Sunday and winter mix due Monday will beat it down and crust over whats left.

None here in SW Ohio, but every road in CT has been closed.  Lots of snow up that way.

Think how bad it would have been without Global Warming.   ;D ;D ;D

With out Global warming we would have had 6 storms like this, and the wimpy liberals would have died of the screaming jeebers.

They are actually blaming the cold spell in January and now these storms on the warm up.  Appears that the warm oceans of the last couple years cause the shift.  Wasn't it back in the 70's we dealt with El Nino, or however you spell that Spanish stuff, that caused the opposite of what we have this year?

Blame it on something, and take our rights away!

They blamed snow in the gulf states on GW.

Theory went that with the ice caps melting, the Atlantic is much colder and the currents bring it down to the Gulf making it colder and so the weather in the area gets colder due to the weather getting warmer.

If it gets hot, it proves we have GW.  If it gets cold, that proves we have GW too.

It's all a load of crap.
It's true that weather patterns are warming, it's part of a cycle that has been going on for thousands of years.
That's why 1815 had no summer, ponds in Pa froze over on July 4.
On the other hand as glaciers recede in Greenland archeologists are finding the ruins of Viking settlements they never knew existed.

Don't go speaking facts Tom!

I've tried to point that out for years, and all it does is get me a collection of blank stares.

It helps sort out the people who are worth wasting your breath on from the ones who aren't.

OK, back on topic...

My 80+ year old neighbors drive is cleaned up.  He let me use his 30 year old snow blower, an old Ariens with the clutch drive!  Man can that thing move some snow!

Motivation here is the China/Burma/India Veterans cap in the back window of the Taurus sedan...he tried to pay me but I said his tab is covered for the remainder of his life!

Going over for a beer later!

Very good, Tim.  Excellent.

I thought they said last night was near 100% chance of rain but now they're saying it's going to happen tonight. Either way it's near 40 degrees and I like it. It's supposed to be nice a few days this week and a 30-40% chance of snow the other days. We just don't get hit like we used to.

Eastern ND is probably near 10" at this moment, but it's hard to know exactly how much what with the wind moving it all horizontally! I have a spot in my back yard that shows grass, and the snow is maybe 3-4 feet by the fence 30' away.

Blizzard continues until tomorrow noon. I have to tell you this since the MSM has got its knickers in such a bind because the Nemo storm is happening to THEM, that the rest of the country can suck fumes as much as the MSM cares. At least we got a name for this storm, lame as it is - Orko.
