got this in a email. first, how clever, second i have everything raised for no more snow, snow predicted south of us tonight, and for us sunday night into monday 2-4 inches; and more on wednesday. sunday is super bowl sunday so this snow might ruin some parties. i'm thinking we have made God and mother nature mad!
there is talk of flooding this spring and that was before the snow this week going to be another interesting weather year.
