Climate change/Global warming...

Quote:

Without any warning, over a period of several days, the Blizzard of 1958 dropped as much as five feet of snow in eastern Pennsylvania and surrounding states. The wet and heavy build up caused considerable damage due to tree limbs that broke and fell causing the electricity to be knocked out in many areas.
Gouldsboro, PA, located in the Pocono Mountains received five feet of snow, Morgantown fifty inches, thirty-five inches fell in Stroudsburg, and Allentown received twenty inches. In the Philadelphia about a foot and a half built up before it was all over.

You're right, Philly weather says 11.4 inches over the three days, although Wilmington, Trenton and Allentown got a foot and a half.
I lived in Secane in 1966 and we got walloped Christmas weekend and again New Years weekend. I've got pictures of my car drifted over with just one front fender showing. :lol:

Wait, Lancaster got 13", Reading got 16", and Morgantown got 50"? :eyebrow:

xoxoxoBruce 02-18-2017 03:24 PM

Elevation. Nope Morgantown is only a couple hundred higher.

If you ever take a road trip to Better Bee, stop by. I'm on the way, about 10 miles from them.

The next movie I want to see badly enough to take the muscle relaxers that will allow me to survive that long in a theater seat opens in less than 2 weeks when I was sure it'd be a late-summer feature! Yay, early theatrical awesomeness! (we need a Kermit Flail emoticon or something)

Could happen, although a trip there could be damaging to my credit card.

Today music is making me happy.

Being able to work on my creative writing (a/k/a "slapping my imaginary friends around") is making me happy.

Temperatures above freezing are making me very happy!

Having a little kingdom of solitude all to myself (a/k/a my computer room, NO CATS ALLOWED) is making me happy.

The fact that I've kept a single pet alive and healthy for over 15 years is making me happy.

The fact that the sweet family living in the other upstairs unit in my building don't have to move is making me happy.

The fact that I have a tiny but solidly built little "family" around me makes me happy whenever I slow down enough to remember how lucky I am.

See, I may be mouthy but I CAN do something other than babble science and be a jerk :D.
