Cold, cold, cold

Woke up this morning to -20 degrees F. I swear I don't believe we are going to have spring this year. I was just reading in the Daily News Minus "The period from Feb. 12 to March 20 was the coldest on record, according to Aycock. The average temperature was minus 13 degrees Fahrenheit, about 17 degrees colder than normal." It was in an article titled "Underground frost stopping up septic and water lines in Fairbanks" This I do know, mine is still frozen. Let me tell you what a pain that is. Along with the extreme cold temperatures the snow fall this year is way down "Snow usually acts as ground insulation but this winter only a thin blanket of 26 inches had fallen as of Tuesday, the fourth-lowest total on record to date, according to meteorologist Don Aycock at the National Weather Service in Fairbanks. Normally there is more than 5 feet of snow on the ground at this time of year, he said." Global warming where are you is what I'm saying. Someone please notify Al Gore...
