Default More Snow for Monday In Hell Jersey

It is a beautiful weekend here in New Jersey. The weather was fantastic and I'm multitasking chores and playing with the Onans yesterday and plan to do the same today. I just read the local online Fake News website and looks like they predict up to 6 inches of that white crap called snow for Monday. I just put away my snow shovels and was ready to seed the lawn. Now I got to prepare for a possible power outage.

April fools came a day early, and March went out like a Lion!

Think my neighbor lost his mind. Yesterday he dragged his snow blower out of the shed, ran it out of gas. And put it back in shed with lawn mower in the lead.

I think he'll regret that, wife says about the only time she didn't make it into work due snow was a huge storm in April.

I basically did that too. I put away the snow shovels and snow blower. I bought lawn fertilizer and seed yesterday at WalFart and was planning on spreading that crap and servicing the lawn mowers today. Instead, I had to pull out the snow shovels and once again get the plow truck ready. What the hell happened to global warming? I have a 30lb tank of R-12 left over from the old days of the 1990's and I'm going to let is all out into the atmosphere this afternoon (looking for the "devil" smilie, but none found here).

That R-12 used to be worth its weight in gold in the vintage automotive world.

Johnny, you are just not thinking about it correctly...
When the temperature is colder than normal, it's "weather".
When the temperature is warmer than normal, it's "Global Warming".

And here I thought I was the only one who hoarded some Freon 12...

Rough winter out here too. Had to haul snow down from the top of the volcano for the grand kids to play in. ALOHA AL
