Hope they're cremated in a Dutch oven.

We had a fairly mild winter in western South Dakota until the las few weeks. I'm ready for Spring.

The storm made its mark in Texas, too, where hail the size of hen eggs fell on areas south of Dallas and Fort Worth ...... as opposed to rooster eggs?

April showers are supposed to bring May flowers dammit!

Not this shiatty frozen hellscape.

As opposed to duck eggs, quail eggs, ostrich eggs, hummingbird eggs...

Ha. Good point, I just found it odd that they clarified it like that. Could've just said chicken eggs was my line of thinking.

Here's a cross section from my driveway here on the north end of St Paul, Mn. at about 7:00 last night.

Supposedly we can expect another 4 to 6 inches before it's all over.

And did I mention that my plow broke down two storms ago, forcing me to shovel my 100' driveway?

Hooray!

70 two days ago. 30's yesterday and today with rain and ice storms.
Fark the Midwest. Fark it right in its stupid face hole.

I'm traveling home today to Minneapolis.  I have this to look forward to, assuming I actually make it.

If only there some scientific way to explain a change in climate.
One that could never be rationally disputed.
Oh, sure, there would be some folks lacking in peer reviewed scientific letters. They would argue through clenched teeth and puffed cheeks that science is wrong, because jebus and petroleum concerns say so, but we seem to lack an authoritave definition from a trusted, elected source.
Failing to elect or install persons in power that can understand the weight of the world vs 40 pieces of silver has always been the lot of man, and shall be its doom.
Nice planet you have here.
Be a shame if anything happened to it.

Of course, I have no ready citations of where man alone or en mass has made grave, or even fatal errors, when choosing money, gratification, or comfort over practicality.

So, that is a shame. We gave no real words to define a changing climate. Despite data. Data collected scientifically. Exprapoltaed even from the rings of trees that were once thriving and now are petrified.

Perhaps, some civilization in millennia to come will find the words.

The words banned by the current political administration. The best words.

Sad.

I'm curious what do you mean by "summerizing" your snowblower?
Had one for many years, all I've ever done is make sure the gas tank is empty. Same with the lawnmower come winter.

Drain gas, pull spark plug, change oil, and pull/clean/examine carb, then store in garage attic

I COULD run it, but then I'd do that all again

also north end last night after shoveling and more fell.

I'm off to go shovel that new layer (about a new 3 or 4 inches)
Yaaay.

14 inches in St Paul last night. I shoveled the driveway twice. Good exercise. We're expecting another 4-5" tonight and tomorrow. If whoever stole the idol from Yuki-onna the Japanese snow princess could return it, the Midwest would be a lot better off.

Well, I am trying to get from Boston to Vancouver and can confirm that there are an assload of cancellations in Logan right now. Anything going to Canada - from Saskatchewan to Nova Scotia - is cancelled.

Fun times.

3rd Sunday in a row we've got significant snow here. Yesterday I was watching my neighbor mow the yard, and was thinking I needed to do the same. Wednesday I was at the park with my son wearing shorts. Now I'm staring at about 2" of snow. I feel the same way.

Banning the debate is what got us into this mess.  When the political decision was made to declare "the debate is over", it opened the door for all kinds of conspiracy theories and pushback.
In science, the debate is never over.  If it was, we would not discover when mistakes are made.

Here in Iowa it's been the same stupid shiatty weather for months. Every farking morning on my alarm clock app:

35 degrees; cloudy
30 degrees; snow
33 degrees; cloudy
35 degrees; cloudy
29 degrees; snow
31 degrees; cloudy
38 degrees; cloudy
35 degrees; cloudy

Once every week or so the sun shines a crack of light through its ass for a few hours at most and then retreats again.  It's been this way since late February.  I am so farking tired of it.

I'm trying desperately not to crack, consoling myself with the hope that if things go right in my life (which they generally don't), I'll be way the hell away from here by this time next year.

Fully agreed; fark this stupid place.  :|

If things go right for my wife (possible promotion) we'll be moving even DEEPER into the Midwest to Omaha.
Pros: double the salary, closer to her family, we can afford a new car, awesome food scene, RUNZAS, I'll probably get to buy a snowblower
Cons: the weather, we're closer to her family,  I'll probably have to buy a snowblower, housing market is through the roof, we're closer to her family.
Of course, the other option is topeka, so I guess there's that?

I guess there's that too. Honestly, I don't mind cold weather as long as it's fairly consistent. I've been wanting to move to Colorado or northern Idaho for a while now. Someplace neither of us has ever lived. I've been to almost every contiguous state and 3 continents, but my wife has never left the midwest, let alone seen an ocean or great lake.  Guess I'm just following the money. ;)

I'd rethink that if I were you. This stuff is heavy.  Ended up going over the whole thing twice. The second pass was to pump the 2 inches of slushy ice at the bottom.  It's probably worth getting it re-summer-ized.
 
2018-04-16 10:56:46 AM  
Made it home.  3 ft drifts entire length of driveway.  Shoveling.  5 hours in today, 30% complete.
