    Oh yeah baby. I've never been in the purple before.

    But I've got four wheel drive and I am ready...

    ...to stay in doors because driving that vehicle would contribute to global warming.

    This is a direct consequence of American emissions:

    It's the mositure that increase in heat pulls off the oceans that causes such dramatic snowfall.

    Just look at what American gas has done to England. And all because you wanted to go to work. Get a job nearer to home. Please.

    Hey, send more of that snow here.
    Our snow levels are hitting 4,000 plus feet this weekend, and I want to go skiing.

    Can't ski in England though, they drive over to France for that, all the while contributing to Global Warming. Those darn Englishman wasting fuel to go skiing.


    Skiing in France. Does she look English?


    Okay, this is fast.

    Once it gets cold enough for precipitation to fall as snow instead of rain... well, yeah, of course warmer means more snow & colder means less snow. Common sense: warm air holds more moisture than cold air, right?

    You sure you live in Cincinnati? I always assumed any northerner knows that.

    No, snow yet and I just went to buy some wood.

    We'll get the fireplace going if the power goes.

    The surge protector is good to go too.

    I'm ready. 3 feet or more though and I'll have to clear the roof. I hear they start groaning after that.

    We'll send some of the white stuff up to you Dave after we have finished with it here.

    Call it a Christmas gift from the Feds!

    Ian...Good Morning America just said you might get 20"

    Global warming is working real well...All we need to do now is move away from the sun a little and we will be all set...wait...no we need to change the magnetism of the earth...wait...no we need to change the solar system...or is it something else we just don't know about yet...well...I forget now..what is it exactly...

    It looks like everyone on the east coast is going to get pounded hard
    here in INDY we look to get maybe two inches....

    CASS...
    Now that you have brought up global warming, it makes me wonder with so much more water in the atmosphere from glaciers melting off ....

    I wonder if a 10 - 15 foot snowfall over a large metro area would be out of the question some day...

    we never thought that the glaciers and anartica would melt off so quickly
    so who knows what is possible???

    of course those scientists would say its all bunk...

    not enough proof.....

    so if it snowed 15 foot in your area would you see
    that as a sign of trouble???.

    I think Ian has been buried
    I'm sure he'll just hire someone with all the extra && he has
    ......seeing how he always wants to pay more taxes
    Hasn't started here yet
    Wood bin is loaded, I have another load in the house by the fireplace
    Plenty of kindling
