Winter in Indiana

Wednesday, January 28, 2009

Tina Jackson of Greencastle scrapes snow and ice from her Ford Expedition Tuesday. Putnam County is under a winter storm warning until noon Wednesday. An additional 5 to 7 inches of snow was expected from Tuesday into Wednesday. [Order this photo]

Significant amounts of snow in the forecast will make travel dangerous. If traveling becomes a must, keep an extra flashlight, food and water in the vehicle in case of an emergency. [Order this photo]

Remember 31 years ago today was the Blizzard of 1978!

I think this may be the biggest snow my kids have seen. I do remember the Blizzard of '78 myself. Now I know what my parents were up against with that storm. Being a kid though, we thought it was fun. Not now, especially trying to drive in it.

To bondsman, global warming isn't a constant occurance. Just because it is snowing now doesn't mean it isn't real - it is based on the yearly temperature increase not on a daily increase. Listen to the news and you'll learn about life ourside of Greencastle like the ice shelf about to break off.

Siera, you may know more than I do about what the so called experts call global warming. However, if you believe it exists-do you think "man" is causing it? Personally, I think that would be tooting our own horn a little loudly. I just don't see it. In my opinion, things happen exactly the God intends.

Interesting how this cold winter times out with an unusually inactive period of solar activity like sun spots.

But Al Gore needs a couple more bucks to put high priced gas in his Gulfstream............
