“Snowmageddon” or “Snowpocalypse?”

I’ve had enough of this ridiculous snow.  There is no end in sight.  At times like this, I feel that my emotions are best expressed by quoting lines from an early 90’s movie:

You want a prediction about the weather, you’re asking the wrong Phil. I’ll give you a winter prediction: It’s gonna be cold, it’s gonna be gray, and it’s gonna last you for the rest of your life.

and some more…

There is no way that this winter is *ever* going to end as long as this groundhog keeps seeing his shadow. I don’t see any other way out. He’s got to be stopped. And I have to stop him.

Thanks IMDB.  You rock! I’d hate to think that this was going to be the new “normal” but it looks like that could be the case.  Check this out:

Climate change causes more severe weather

Call it “Snowpocalypse” or “Snowageddon,” the mid-Atlantic and Northwestern U.S. have seen winter storms this year that rival anything in decades. Scientists agree that this kind of extreme weather is consistent with climate change research.

I have this sudden urge to sit down and watch “Groundhog Day.”

Let It Snow

I think we’ve just about finished digging out from the 16” of snow we’ve received since Friday night.

We’ve been in the house basically since late Friday night, but the kids (and the dog) wanted to go play in the snow on Saturday, so they did do that.

Here is a short video of Gordon the wondermutt romping in the snow:

Stay warm and stay safe!

Here we go with the weather again

Okay, so what does that mean? Well, in my strange world, that simply means it’s time for winter.

But it really is too early.  I can’t believe it’s October 28 and we’re already talking about snow.  But the mountains may get it a little worse than us.

Here is a little map that shows what we’re dealing with out there:

If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes

Well, this is certainly an interesting snapshot:

From weather.com at 11:45am EST on Dec 1, 2006

Look at that 30 degree difference between Charleston, WV and Cincinnati, OH.  Unreal!

I enjoy the warmer weather.  This morning on wunderground.com the temperature in the area was 73 degrees, and the heat index was 77.  Heat Index! On December 1! Unreal!

Ok, well two “unreals” is enough for this post.  Hope you succeed in dodging the snow!
