    We have the most snow this last december in recorded history with half a grovery store's roof collapsing along with a church, a gym, and many other buildings. Most of the Walmarts also closed today to remove snow off the roof. Here is a story about other businesses with damages to their roofs.

    The snow will just not stop here! I am so sick of snow!

    I was watching a program about public transit, and it was noted that in 1888, New York city had a snow fall of twenty feet, and the city just shut down. That was what convinced them of a need for the underground transit system.

    I think that there will be some new codes that you most meet when you build a structure!

    You want it in the liquid form? We got plenty of it... Right now the two rivers and one creek I'm near have been at flood state for the last 2 days and thankfully have been going down for about 18 hours. My county has been declared a state of emergency by the governor. They say another 1.5 to 2 inches of rain are expected Sunday. The snow of last week is all but gone but I expect not for long.

    I pray for you. Stay warm!!!

    I'll do my best to stay dry.

    You folks in the Pacific NW are really getting slammed, aren't you?

    My condolences.

    You seldom get much snow, right? And correct me if I'm wrong, but are gale force winds also somewhat unusual in that part of the world, are they not?

    Now, I am not going to say this is the result of global warming.

    But I am going to point out that global warming doesn't just mean things will get warmer.

    It means that weather is going to get pretty WEIRD.

    In fact, I believe that global weirding is a more descriptive phrase for what we going to be facing than global warming.

    Mankind, all over the earth has prepared itself for the normally expected weather in their part of the world.

    Our buildings, our roads, our heating and cooling systems, our cars, our clothing, all set up to deal with what we could normally expect in our parts of the world.

    Except what we can expect now, is the unexpected.

    So wherever you live, to use the phrase of the NAV, prepare for heavy swells.

    Where I live we do get some snow but usually an average of about 45 inches for the whole winter season, this year we got 62 or 61 in one month! SOme people have around 3 to 5 ft of snow on their roofs! THe old buildings can take it but the new ones can't which I think is funny!
