    I was outside just now trying to bust through the drifts in my driveway, but I had to give up. I don't know how my husband is going to get his car in. I haven't seen snow like this in years, the kids think it's neat though.

    you do realize that global warming can cause changes in ocean temperature and currents that would, in certain parts of the globe, bring about much colder overall temperatures?

    Actually, this winter is closer to those I remember when young. I'm not sold on or writing off globabl warming. I do know there is way too much politics being played with it, not enough 'science.' Plenty of scare tactics though. Whoops, guess that goes with the politics.

    I have no doubt... actually..... what we witnessed was wind patterns NOT affected by aircraft turbulence!

    Yep. The last blizzard I went threw was in 19** when I was around 7. I remember thinking how great it was staying home for 2 weeks making snow tunnels.

    *whew that was close almost told my age*
