    WARNING FOR SNOW...WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM MIDNIGHT TONIGHT TO 6
    AM EST THURSDAY. THE WINTER STORM WATCH IS NO LONGER IN EFFECT.

    SNOW IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP LATER TONIGHT. THE SNOW MAY BECOME
    HEAVY AT TIMES ON WEDNESDAY...BEFORE SLOWLY TAPERING OFF WEDNESDAY
    NIGHT. SNOW ACCUMULATIONS OF 6 TO 12 INCHES ARE EXPECTED.

    AS THE STORM INTENSIFIES...EAST TO NORTHEAST WINDS WILL BECOME
    STRONG AND GUSTY DURING THE DAY ON WEDNESDAY...AND THESE WINDS
    CONTINUE WEDNESDAY NIGHT. GUSTS OF 25 TO 35 MPH ARE CERTAINLY

    I think I will ride down to the casino and watch some Basketball. I will send all my positive energy in your general direction-be warm my brothers. hahahahahahahahahaha!
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    The snow this year in CO has been absolutely pathetic.

    Same in Washington. Due to El Nino, according to the climatologists.

    Man they are buried from Central Jersey down to Virgina though. I mean, we're a LITTLE used to that up here. But that's a lotta snow for Northern Dixie.

    Actually to me, Northern Dixie starts in Delaware. Right by that gigantic Harley dealership on the south end of the Delaware Bridge on the south end of the NJ Tpke.

    That HD Dealership is like a giant sign screaming 'We don't like you Honda sissy-boys down here boy'.

    And they don't.

    I love running the hound on the Pcad Estate. We have 6.6 acres and I employ all of it in this endeavor. It is rather mountainous here. I love it.

    there's about 1inch of snow on the ground outside now.

    and I'll get to ride that with my bike.

    I should put the rear winter stud on, but I'm too lazy and I know the roads weren't frozen today when I was coming home.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)
