    It's March 25th, 5 days into spring, and I wake up to snow on the ground. A few inches is expected so it's no blizzard but this is the most snow we've gotten in 2 years.

    There are a few flakes of global warming floating around here today. We haven't had any actual global warming accumulation here in Nashville this year, which is a little unusual, but just east of here, from the Cumberland Plateau all the way through the Smokies, they have gotten a boatload of global warming falling on the ground. I think I heard on local news that Cookeville had a combined 36" of global warming accumulation this year.

    We woke up to global warming here this morning. Enough to make life interesting...

    Actually a friend of mine said "they blew up Spring and now the ashes are falling from the sky".

    We got 3 inches of Global Warming last night, and are getting another 3 to 4 inches of it tonight. Schools are cancelled, roads are closed, and people are livid at Phil for how he lied!

    I love my God, my country, my flag, and my troops ....

    We got about a half inch of rain yesterday via some mild T-Storms.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Of course, this is the same country that didn't go to unleaded gasoline till the mid-eighties.
    Yeah, this was the same country that converted how many millions of people into carbon during WWII?

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    Well, I wasn't going to quite go into Carbon Country (because, after all, most of the Carbon Generators were located in Poland or otherwise outside the Fatherland) but since you mention it...

    What happened to all that carbon? Is it the source of a lot of Al Bore's discomfiture?

    We are still getting global warming here...woke up to more, kept floating out of the sky most of the day.

    Had to scrap the stuff off the car this morning.

    Btw, we are about 15 degrees below average for this time of the year.

    From wiki...

    Various states and localities have passed laws pertaining to idling. Some of the laws are more strict and stringent than others. Thirty-one states currently have some sort of existing regulations pertaining to anti-idling. Of these states, California has the most codes and regulations. The California Air Resources Board has enacted numerous laws that regulate idling in the state.
