    That means less snowmobiling and ice fishing.Less snow will also be to the disadvantage of hunters.

    I admit I'm selfish, to me it means possibly not contending with -55 F this winter, and I hate snowmobiles in general. Getting rid of snowmobiles is one of the upsides to global warming .

    That is a sign from God to move somewhere else.

    Do you really mean -55f...thats freaking cold haha? If you mean 55f...and you consider that cold...you really need to move the central america. 55f is still shorts and t weather here.

    Last time we had el nino weather we had record snow...there are a lot of boarders and skiers hoping that the effect will be duplicated.

    thats -55 dude, as in fehrenheit, it occasionally gets even colder and its a real b__th if you don't have a heated garage. Generally el nino is good news for me, snow=low pressure and moderate temperatures, clear=high pressure and temperatures like the dark side of the moon. But sometimes in good el nino we even skip the snow and then the possibility exists of getting 1000 road miles in before June, ha.

    Coo...just making sure. To many people on this site (and others) complain about cold weather and refer to possitive temps.

    At -40...F and C meet on the thermometer. Life sucks in either measurement at -55. I have gone through a couple of winters at those temps...thats why I left ontario.
