15" and counting..
That's nice... we had 70 cm of snow (that's about 27") few weeks ago... not all of it is melted (big black-grey mountains of snow still persist on some sidewalks)...
I would bet!
Whas is your avg snowfall/moisture table a year? They say for every foot of snow, that is about an inch of moisture..
No idea... but we got 50 cm of snow in December and then another 70 cm of snow in January... this broke almost 200 year old snow fall record on both occasions...
Rises, and studiously grasps lapels: “Now I have heard much nonsense, from the Opposition benches, about the American supposed moon landing, and their reports the moon seems to be made of a Gouda, when we all know that the best of our scientists have conclusively demonstrated, by the most elegant theory, that the moon is made of overripe Stilton.
This is clearly a case of empiricism gone rampantly wild. Who, in their right mind would believe the reports of Americans, over our government scientists, about cheese? Why that is almost as nonsensical as asking fishermen about historical climactic conditions. Now we all know that fishermen are uneducated, unwashed, and likely to be Irish, or some other such race, and those that support them, as they support this moon nonsense, are at best, misguided Home Rule enthusiasts, and at worst, frothing revolutionaries who wish to rape our women and devour our children.
I ask you, Gentlemen, is this empiricist nonsense, from the Opposition, to be quietly borne, or shall we not put forth all the power of Government, in support of our scientists and their paid-for scientific theories?”
Pompously grasps lapels and eases an oversized bottom into a too-small chair.
“Harrumph, harrumph, harrumph.”
Nous n'avons pas peur! Vive la liberté! Moi aussi je suis Charlie!
