    This is all fine and dandy, but rainfall in CA, especially SoCal, still hasn't kicked in to the extent it should if El Nino's this strong. Enough of the talk: bring it on!

    El Nino years give us dry warmer winters so it's 50s and low 60s this week. Not too bad.

    No complaints at all, but we do need that rain. OTOH, I was in PDX over the weekend and wow, talk about cold and gray! Now I know why they all wear those wool hats and hoodies up there!

    I live in PDX and all over the metro area it's been raining so much that lower areas and those by streams and creeks are flooded and people are having to leave their damaged places due to all the water. Roads are washed out and landslides are taking out large roadways.

    It is usually much colder here, but 50's and 60's in December is pretty warm for this time of year. I still wear a coat, hat and gloves though.

    Not uncommon that we don't get hit (Columbus) until after new year's, but El Nino years are generally very mild.

    It is 40s and 50s up here in Buffalo with no sign of any cold winter weather. Oh well, it can stay like this until April 1st. After the fierce, bitterly cold, snowy winter we had last year, we earned a mild, dry winter.

    Send that 72 degree weather up to Western New York with an automatic guarantee of it lasting at least until Super Bowl Sunday in early February, that would be very sweet. icon_biggrin.gif

    I actually like having some winter, but with El Nino, we probably won't get much. So I'll make use of it and get out and get some outside work done and one car detailed today and another tomorrow.

    First honest winter storm day in SD yesterday, with heavy showers and even some lightning at night. Nice to hear the drops falling on the roof on a relatively - 55* - cold day! But today, sunny and not a cloud in the sky. Pool me!

    Reading this thread one can almost sense the Conservaposse wishing they hadn't denied climate change just so they could take credit for the warm winter.icon_lol.gif

    We didn't. Climate's been changing for 4.7 billion years. Why on 'earth' would it stop now?

    We appreciate diverse weather. The politics of diversity? Not so much. "Who'll stop the rain?"

    LOL! Very good! More rain in SD last night, BTW, but welcome! Hills are starting to green up again - and all w/o a federal program mandating them to do so!

    This is the first time I've ever seen pouring rain in MN in December. Anyone who's ever experienced a MN winter would know that this is as backwards as snow on the fourth of July.
