Re: weather rant was: just checking


Marge - metereologically speaking - two factors are causing this unholy
mess. El Nino (:-P") which is most of our problem and there's some
phenomenon in the North Atlantic this year (can't remember what it's
called by weathermen - I know what y'all would LIKE to call it) that is
resulting in a low pressure over Greenland or some such feeding cold air
into the Northern tier and a big high pressure off the Southern coast
funneling moisture up the east Coast. The results when they meet (as you
know all too well) are not pretty. They did a special on our Channel 8 a
couple weeks ago, guess they got tired of everyone calling in w/ the
same questions. This pattern has a name, but darned if I can remember it
now. And El Nino keeps pushing rain west to east and the little bit
that's left after we get drowned, heads in y'alls direction to add to
the "fun". Personally, I'd like everything to just get back to normal. I
should be wearing T-shirts and a light jacket by now and I'm still in
heavy sweaters and a pea coat. SICK of it now.

Still haven't planted my shrubs (too wet).  Marge, is that more than you wanted to know probably??
