Let it Snow?

Two years ago we had nearly 200 inches of snow over the season. On New Year's Day there was about a foot of snow on the ground. Last year I never ran my snow blower. December just passed here in Upstate NY saw the least amount of snow in recorded history. The mower deck is still on my lawn tractor. This morning it was 52 degrees.

What will this year bring?

World faces hottest year ever, as El NiƱo combines with global warming.
Says the headline of this article in the Independent.

Last week BushCo. claimed it would add the Polar Bear the the threatened species list. A small step towards finally joining the real world where scientists agree that global warming is taking place and is anthropogenic? Perhaps. Is it too little too late? Most likely.
