Global Warming...?!

During my college daze at Oswego State, lake effect dropped 103" in 3 days...
The school was officially "closed" but the local bars were very much "open" and jammed...

Already 100" and more on the way!
GO LAKERS!

And my brothers, sisters, father in northeastern PA and my relatives in northeastern PA and Rochester and Syracuse areas wonder why I like the WA State PNW winter rain so much! I don't miss the snow at all, although I do shake my head at the panic with most folks around here when we get a few measely inches of snow once or twice every few years.

I still will take the rain in this area over the snow I grew up with.

Just don't let the rest of the world know we've discovered Goretex. Let them go on thinking we have all developed webbed toes and our women have moss growing under their arms.
