I’ve heard experts say this is to be the worst winter since 1949 when snow fall was measured in feet and ice covered rivers and lakes. Not sure how they came up with that prediction but it isn’t coming true, at least not yet and it doesn’t look like it’s going to be a white Christmas. Maybe the global warming thing has turned the snow to rain. Is all the fever over the Siberian express just hype? Is the worst over? We could rename the valley Soggy bottom.
