Dude what the mother ****. I live 25 minutes from the canadian border and i'm running around outside in a Tshirt, begging nature for snow. Even our local ski resort is weak sauce this year. Meanwhile you're in texas with all the fun white stuff.

Wow. Something similar happened at an apartment complex I used to live at in Carlsbad. They were roofed in clay tile (very heavy) and the stoned driver of a carpet cleaning van backed into one, causing it to fall over sideways such that the roof came down flat.

Only one car was parked under it at the time, a Honda coupe of some sort. The top half of the car was completely pancaked, and all for wheels had, shall we say, more positive camber than is normally attainable.

WOW, go move it before the other side gives out!!

Is that in TX?

Here in northern KY we've got about 8-9" of snow on the ground.

EDIT: Curb, eh? You're in quite a fuckle.

******* crazy. Get some wood and drive up on the sidewalk. The weather lately is crazy. We had a bit of hail/sleet earlier today on the gulf coast.

I got to drive mine for a little bit Tuesday on my Blizzaks... and then the front right tire went low after I hit something on the interstate and I had to park it and drive the Lincoln Towncar instead.

This snow is lame. It's too thick to have fun in. And it completely trashed my $10 HD lip. Latest report was 12.2 inches, which is a record for us texonians.

cheap shots at global warming during snow storms?

meanwhile vancouver has had mostly rain and vancouver has had its warmest january on record.

meanwhile the contiguous united states was .3 degrees above its long term average

holy **** it's dark where i live, my localized condition must be a clear indication of a global trend, therefore the sun is gone forever and will never come back

Regardless of whether you believe global warming is a legitimate phenomenon or not, the idea that "it snowed this week where i live, therefore global warning is bullshit" is so appallingly absurd it makes my head hurt.

Lol, well I thought I was obviously joking.

I did not intend to turn this thread into a global warming debate.

Edit:

Before I get a bunch of people starting arguing let me go back in here and point out that I am joking. I posted the cartoon to make you smile to you not to start a debate.

They obviously decided that global warming was a bad label as now it is global climate change. We did once or more times have an ice age and a tropical age. This was a long time ago. Perhaps we are in another slow temp change in the earth cycle. Even if we are is it human caused? One volcano could change it all in a week. Is it a bad change? How much new farm land would be available for crop production in Canada?

4-MORE awnings fell last night.
