Comments: Storm Of The Century Of The Week Day Watch

Very little snow here in Toledo this year. This past summer was cooler than normal, winter a bit warmer than normal. I am fine with that. Anthropomorphic Goebbels Warmening people warn that climate change is going to lead to more extreme weather. I'm experiencing unextreme weather this year.

Was it 1997 when the DC area experienced 3-4 big snowstorms in a row right after Christmas/New Year? I was in Arlington at the time and remember all those storms and various closings.

Meanwhile, in the heart of snow country, we *might* get up to four inches overnight Friday - in my suburb, that may not be enough for them to bother plowing the side roads.

Even our weather people were yammering about the storms you are slated to receive.

You are having the winter weather we had in Maine three years ago--one snowstorm after another--whilst we are having a dry-ish winter--one or two big snows followed by weeks of clear--the likes of which we haven't had here for ten or so years. The snow then seems to have been all to the south of us (see above.) Fact is there is no "normal" weather; there is only "average" weather anywhere. And it's cyclical.

I guess I need to pick up more steaks to grill, though down here in Richmond we won't get nearly as hammered at the snow.

This is obviously George W. Bush's fault

I'm somewhere between the e and s in "disruptive snowfall."

I'm supposed to be flying back into Dulles on Sunday evening. I may get there, but may not be able to get from there to home. Best case scenario may me that roads will be clear but my car will be buried in 3 feet of snow out in the Gold Lot.

In the meantime, could you send some of that snow to Vail, Colorado, where we could use it? Thanks.

I'm above the second "i" in disruptive. I'm too far north for snow?
