    You are getting it worse than up north here, in KC. Don't yet know the total amount...and it may be just a guess at best except the 'official' recorded amount because the wind is blowing so hard and will continue until noon or later on Wednesday. Interstate 70 is closed from Kansas City to St. Louis, approx. 275 miles.

      Bill, right where I am we only ended up with about 4 inches of snow and some sleet/freezing rain but not near what we were being told to expect.

        The thing I don't understand is that every winter, farmers and ranchers somewhere or another, face down blizzards, etc.

        The administration's forceful inflationary actions are driving up energy and food costs dramatically ... but what better to blame than the weather? After all, who can control that?! The msm is the PR arm of the nwo and so they like to hype things a bit (a "bit?" ) so the people are ready to accept the weather being blamed for high food costs. Clever, eh?

        Issachar, just guessin' still ...
        The church is on Earth to save souls from a lost world, not to save the world from lost souls.

        Man learns about history, not from history. To learn from history requires wisdom. Cut off from God, he has none, so history repeats; no new thing under the sun.

          Oh ya .. and don't forget the Florida deep freeze that is still to come. Happens every year, some fruit is lost ... but every year it is reported as a disaster to the fruit industry and thereby justifies the high cost of fruit .. rather than the high cost of energy for harvesting, processing and shipping it, which is actually due to the devaluing of the dollar due to inflationary pressures; pressures that are decided .. they don't "just happen."

            Good observations Issachar. I was thinking along the same thing except that perhaps those genetically altered seeds don't hold up as well in winter as they did before being altered. lol What you said makes more sense though.
