Chicago winter of 2011 – 2012 to be worst winter EVER!

So said many experts, with the media zealously using such ostentatious predictions to sell newspapers and attract website clicks.  Those of us living in the Chicago area are still waiting; so far this has been the warmest winter in 80-years.  Tomorrow is Groundhog Day and that leaves only around 6-weeks or so for us to be awestruck with the experts’ abilities to make precise long-term predictions.  Is it remotely possible that science and technology still does not measure up to such a task?  Obviously.  However, do not expect the media or the weather experts to admit as much.

You just had to tempt the gods, didn't you?

We have had similar weather in MN, but I figure that one horrendous storm could make it average out. I hope that does not happen.

Or maybe we will have frost into July.

Heh, if we start having non-stop blizzards, I am deleting this post.

Shirtsleeve weather here today in TX; it keeps bouncing between freezing and warmness.

Things are budding out way too early.Hope fruit trees don't start blooming!

February is supposed to be our coldest and wettest month. We'll see.

Rest assured that, either way, it is a result of man-made global warming. If you want to live, get rid of your car, stop polluting the atmosphere with smoking guns and go to steel shot.

Grace and peace.
