    I think "fly by" is the key phrase there.

    I've watched several hours of news over the last two days and have heard no mention of it. Was that on the National Enquirer channel?

    No. Several legitimate talk radio shows, among other sources.

    I guess the end of the world wasn't considered important enough for some stations to report.

    I'm sorry, my mistake. I thought you said legitimate sources.

    Indeed. I have spoken. So let it be written, so let it be done.

    You think? With the drifting, there are parts of my property that have drifts that have to be approaching 3 feet deep.

    But realistically Vader... still doesn't hold a match to the blizzards of 78.

    i remember the blizzards of aught-3 and aught-5 here in colorado. I was working at dish back in 03, and was car-less at the time. It began snowing at night, and I thought nothing of it. The next morning I found snow in my bedroom because I left the window open (i tended to sleep on the couch then, more of a story then i wanna get into.) Sadly, my hamster froze because of this. That day I tried to walk it to work, and twisted my ankle at the halfway point between work and home. i was stuck with the decision of walking home uphill on a bad ankle, or going downhill to work. it was almost 3' of snow either way.

    in 05 i was working for verizon and just stayed home.

    That's because we were on the beginning of global cooling, an ice age, at that time. :D

    Ah, who remembers Chicago's worst storm ever, the Blizzard of '67?

    The day before we had temps in the upper 60s and tornado watches. Less than 24 hours later we had two feet or more of snow. I can only imagine how bad that would have been had Global Warming existed then! :D

    People like to make fun, but really dont understand that global warming causes climate changes that will cause some areas to get much colder.

    So cooling is a part of global warming because of the differences in weather patterns and major flows such as the gulf stream.

    Did that beat the storm of March, 1930? I was under the impression that it was the worst ever.
