Recordbreaking Snowfall Calls For “The Big Dig.”

As my father used to say, “We only have this trouble in the wintertime; Never in the summertime.”

The Northeast has gotten hit pretty hard this winter – shattering the record of 65.5 inches set in 1995-1996.  How could I forget? That was when we got over 30 inches of snow in January and my newborn twins were just over one month old! Is it time to break out the champagne and party hats or what? Just as long as they are warm and lined.

Does anyone else have distaste for news coverage during winter storms or is it only me? Local reporters act as if this is the first time snow ever fell on the planet. Come on. Get real, people! And put those stupid company-issued rulers away! Taking measurements of your little mound of snow while on camera is so idiotic.  Oooooh, ahhhhhh!

Meteorological Note: I remember this from my elective meteorology course back in college… Every 25,000 years, the seasons ROTATE… bringing sunny days in December, January & February and bitter cold during June, July & August. Think about building snowmen and throwing snowballs while school is out! ~Ha ha ha.
