I told my family and friends,it was going to be shitty, they laughed .The squirrels were going bananas in the fall ,and trees produced lots of acorns . That is according to the old timers a bad sign. I work outdoors and has not been pleasant as it has been cold and nasty .I sure hope this is the last of the snow . (wishful thinking)

Conventional wisdom - The earlier they call it the less you get

Kids have been planning on a Weds storm for almost a week now - so I am almost sure we will get nothing...

Remember, you MUST go to the grocery store and get a
minimum of 6 gallons of milk and 12 loaves of bread.

The pacific is 2 degress warmer than usual

throwing old elnino amok and moving our jet stream down south - sounds good to me -

Trust me - All you really need is plenty of beer beer and chips and maybe a good read, few cans of chili and lots of firewood just in case - haven't used the generator in over 5 years here

Jeeze how about them Saints - thought the game would be no interest to us but great entertainment

One winter morning a husband and wife in DC were listening to the radio during breakfast. They heard the announcer Say, "We are going to have 8 to 10 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the even-numbered side of the street, so the snowplows can get through." So the good wife went out and moved her car.

A week later while they are eating breakfast again, the radio announcer said, "We are expecting 10 to12 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the odd-numbered side of the street, so the snowplows can get through." The good wife went out and moved her car again.

The next week they are again having breakfast, when the radio announcer says, "We are expecting 12 to 14 inches of snow today. You must park...." Then the electric power went out. The good wife was very upset, and with a worried look on her face she said, "Honey, I don't know what to do. Which side of the street do I need to park on so the snowplows can get through?"


After careful thought, the husband came up with a great suggestion: " honey , why don't you leave the car in the garage this time.
