Yay, winter is back! If only we could get another nice snow cover like the one we just lost. And some decent frozen lakes for the ice fishermen. I like warm weather as much as the next guy, but if we're gonna have winter, let's have winter.

Brace yourself, everyone.... Get ready for all the people who know for a fact that "global warming" is a hoax, as well as all the people who know for a fact that "global climate change" is unquestionable dogma, to come out of the woodwork and shout about how right they are. Or with any luck they will just do something productive instead... For me, personally, I'll just reminisce about how freezing cold every February was (or seemed to be) back when I delivered the Ann Arbor News in the good old days (the 90s).

Nice sourcing of Weather Underground -- the most trusted site in underground weather. Yes, it was once an Ann Arbor leftist radical organization, but not in the service of shoddy weather reports.

Thumbs down.

Well, @WalkingJoe, at this point it's 9. Read @UncleMao's comment again, give it a little thought, and see if you can come up with the answer. I am confident you will.

That was supposed to be "voting cold weather down?"

Not really sure why four people voted this comment down. Are you people who love cold weather and disagree with UncleMao? Or are you voting cold weather done?
