I live in the Pacific North West.
It did not rain today.
Well, okay, it did not rain all day today, but it did rain a bit of the day, but when it's just a little bit and then the sun comes out, and then it rains for a little bit, and then the sun comes out - you are getting the drift of this thing.
Is that global warming?
I too have picked up my snow shovel for the winter. I still have the one I brought with me from the prairies 19 years ago and it is starting to show it's age. So, with new ones on sale for elcheapo since we've not had signs of snow I thought I would partake of one to hang beside the oldie.
I figure if we have the tools the weather will cooperate and it won't snow this winter. It's like buying a convertible and then it rains all summer. Or a ski-doo and then it never snows.
