As far as I know, all weather is sort of involuntary. I mean, even if you ask Obama to fire up his weather machine, you never know what you're gonna get with that guy, he's such a card.

Also, who could know that the North-country could get cold in the winter? I mean, how could anyone POSSIBLY know this?

Would you prefer to have the inconvenience of billions of drops of water changed out with one large drop of water?

I'm going to go outside in a t-shirt and shorts because this cold weather is a hoax perpetuated by the Burlington Coat Factory.

Well if they have at least a few hundred bucks or a credit card, they still have time to avoid the storm.

/It might be an idiotic choice to risk bankruptcy to quit your job to travel where it won't be cold in a few days, but it is a choice.

The weather was stolen, I am turning on my AC in protest.

I pretty much ignore the doom and gloom of media forecasts. Weather almost always turns out milder than they make it out to be. Wunderground.com is pretty good. New England weather is sort of unpredictable, but we pretty much get one or two really bad storms a winter and the rest are just inconvenient. There does seem to have been a bit more variability due to climate change in the past 10 years.

It's almost a joke here how the TV and radio stations will hype upcoming storms to the limit, and then they end up being fairly manageable. WFH has made snow days a thing of the past, which  akes me very happy. Thank you fiber Internet!

And why is Alaska not even included in the "northern tier states"?  Probably because we're used to winter weather being winter weather.

What a voluntary polar plunge may look like.

The really scary thing is we might be right on the edge of our old data being completely worthless and only using the past 10 years for historical "norms" because of how much we already farked up the world

According to Randall Munroe, that would be bad.

Also, how hard is it to lay out a webpage and automatically allocate space for the shiatty ads?  Trying to chase down blocks of text as they jump around while ads load is infuriating.

It's Winter, CNN. It's called Winter.

The Chinese cooked up this fake weather and sent it over here at us.
