Let's talk March winter weather. I have been doing some digging and thinking about my experiences. I have had more winter weather in March the last 4 years than the other 44 years combined. Last good stretch of March winter weather was in the 60s. Are we repeating a cycle ? Is a repeat of the 70s and 80s to come ? What do y'all think ?

Iím far from a scientist, but I do believe in cycles in weather. You can go back to the ice ages alternating with warm periods as well as the little ice age. Quite a bit of an extreme over what you are talking about, but goes to show that weather has cycles and sure a return to the 70ís and 80ís weather is not out of the realm of possibility.

I was waiting for someone to say it lol.  There may be something to it, but according to Gore, NYC should be close to being under water by now. Thatís as political as Iím gonna get in public anyway.

Wow just got over a 2 week bout with the Flu. I rarely get that sick but that was rough. I hope I don't ever get that again. 7 days of intense flu and then another 3-4 days of not eating much at all and feeling lethargic. Finally I have my strength and appetite back. Took a full 14 days to get back to 100 percent.  ::cough::

Iíve been lucky but the flu has been tough this year. About time for a stiff drink to ward off the leftovers lol

Around here theres a lot of like allergy type colds out there. Im thinking its allergys but could be a weak cold. Just runny nose and a cough every so often at times. But literally so many people have this same symptoms so I guess everyone here has the same allergies haha idk

Looks like Euro backed off on mid week chances. Looks more like GFS. On to the next run.

While we have been basking, snow covers much of Europe at the moment. Here's a picture of the snow in Rome:

Strong Atlantic low is pulling frigid air from Eastern Europe:
