    Chardon, OH --- the snow-capitol of Ohio.  We should have several feet of snow on the ground right now.  The yard is green.  ALL green.  The maples are starting to bud out.  I woke up this morning expecting low 20s, and it was 36.  Before dawn, under a clear January sky in extreme North-East Ohio. Even the forecast models are starting to crumble --- a few days ago, the start of next week with this major cold snap (looks like it's from the Canadian half of that split PV) was supposed to be overnight lows in the mid-single digits.  Now it's upper teens.

    At this rate, I'm doing Barbecue for Easter dinner....

    Proponents of gun violence own guns. Opponents of gun violence do not own guns. What part of this do you not understand?

      and we are expecting single digits overnight tonight.

      Ten days ago we had a foot or so of snow on the ground.  Much of it had melted earlier this week and I saw green grass in quite a few places on that 60 degree day.

      It is all so bizarre.

      I fall down, I get up, I keep dancing.

        We have a couple of new ponds.
