What happened to Global Warming?

Postby tinnerjohn » Wed Mar 20, 2013 2:37 pm

Here it is, the first day of spring, Lake effect snow forecasted. Sent a soil sample in Sat. Can't wait to get in garden. Thinking that a southern clime might be nice. John P.S. I know the warming is still there, but sometimes I wish we could skip Feb. and March :lol:

Seems like its staying colder this year. last year we documented when we planted and what all we got. Last year we planted tomatoes on st patricks day. right now no body even is selling plants. things need to start warming up soon. Im ready to get to work.

Stupid groundhog!

No shadow... early spring... Just as accurate as the weather report!

My groundhog theory is: Shadow- 6 Weeks of Winter, No Shadow- only 42 days. John

If a groundhog is stupid enough to be out in February, I don't trust him to know much of anything.

You wake me up, drag me out of my warm bed and ask me a question--Not only will I give you the wrong answer, but most likely I would bite you also. :evil: :evil: :evil:

It's comical that they make such a big deal about that groundhog, but forecast based on it are wrong 60% of the time.

It's been on a 20 year hiatus. Scientists puzzled.
