2" on the ground and it's still snowing here in northwest Ohio.
it's freakin' April 20, hasn't happened this late with this much since the 1800's.
I'm a gonna blame it on Greta's evil vibes.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Global warming?

If you stop and think about it, snow is just fluffy water...

It's the third week of April for f*'s sake. Summer tires were installed on all vehicles, snowblower was put away, lawn mowers prepared, lawn raked, even the pool was almost ready to use (other than water temp :D )

We have 6 to 8 inches on forecast tomorrow here. I put the snow tires back on to be safe. They have their own wheels, so swapping them is done quickly.

A late snowfall is not that unusual here, but we're used to an inch or two, not half a foot !

Temp dropped like a rock here today. Chance of snow tomorrow. Snow tires are off my wife's and daughter's cars and I've already mowed the grass twice.

Keep your mind like an umbrella, it only works if its open... Continually learning.
Bunch of whining going on here. That damn ground hog "Putuxawany Phil" told you it was going to be a long winter.

Global warming? Nope, polar shifts is what's going on...:ROFLMAO:

Watch out for tree breakage, they get a lot heavier in snow with leaves.

Yeah, we had an ice storm at the end of October. Never happened here in recorded history. Never got out of the 40s today, normal is low 70s. The forecast was for snow this morning, but it didn't happen.

Interesting website. Lots of good articles refuting the climate change bunk. Jives with what we're seeing here lately. https://www.iceagenow.info/

I didn't ask for your life story, just answer the question!
I keep telling everyone, the planets poles are reversing. That’s going to cause the seasons to shift.
