  •  The year there was no winter!!! (4.00)
    I live in Central New York as I write this it is 55(!!!!) degrees. The temperature hasn't gotten much below 35 this entire winter. I could count on one hand how many times this has happened in my life time(44 years), and all in the past 15 years...

    For anyone reading this comment, let me just say that I think you do need a little historical perspective to realize(at least in my simple mind) how alarming this is. I can remember the winters of my youth(stretching back to the 60's, and I can remember the blizzard of '66-although admittedly foggy in my memory banks-and ok I can see the younger readers' eyes glazing over!!!!) that were simply brutal-and freezing cold. It seems too me things started changing in the early '80's.
