Any excuse is a good excuse. :)

Good luck Paco, when all that Global Warming stuff hits you.

Warmmongers have been telling us for years that snow is a thing of the past. Who ya gonna believe, the highly credentialed experts, or your lying eyes?

HAL9000, I fully expect that any day now, they'll make the next Big Announcement: Man has so totally screwed up the Earth's atmosphere, that it's no longer possible to make predictions about what's going to happen in the future.

But whatever happens, it's gonna be really, really bad!

The news here just now, "It has the potential to paralyse...towns...greatest in almost a century..." anyway we'll see. And you'll treat it as another storm, like all the others over the years, I hope. Good news: the Federal Government has shut down. Take care, all Paconistas.

rinardnan, I predict that your prediction about the predictions will come to pass. But there will always be weather people reading signs and "casting bones" and pronouncing the end times.

OT. The New York Post headline, "This weekend will be...WHITER THAN THE OSCARS"

rman,
Nah. All those computer modelers, who have been "proving" for so long that we are doomed from carbon dioxide increases in the air, would be out of work if they said the climate couldn't be predicted. Gotta keep that grant money coming, and only continued predictions of disaster unless we give all power to gubmint will do that.

Forty years ago the catastrophe du jour was Global Cooling. The next ice age was imminent, owing to our bad habit of putting aerosols into the atmosphere from factories and cars. Then, we had to take the same steps they propose against warming in order to prevent cooling. Some (eg Tjeerd van Andel) thought that putting CO2 into the air might postpone or even put off the ice age coming upon us. Later, of course, he swallowed the Warmmongers' Kool Aid.

One of the reasons I've been skeptical of the Warmmongers' hysteria is that I remember when the same people were hysterical about the new ice age. Their computer models "proved" that it was coming soon and it was our fault. Feh.

Iraqi war veteran Justin Anderson of Bellevue, Nebraska converted his all-terrain wheelchair into a snow plow. Plowing sidewalks is his way of giving back to the community that has supported him when his leg was amputated, and as he fought brain cancer.

The chair is cool with its threads rather than wheels. The plowing blade is a fantastic addition. Now, if there were agriculture accessories for the handicapped small farmer....
