I know the 'End Of The World' types want some big catastrophes that causes cannibalisms, ect... BUT! I'm noticing conditions are about the same this year as the were back in '77 & '78 when we had blizzards that kicked butt! Snow in south Texas and New Orleans, 3" of snow in Las Vegas, early arctic air blasts in the mid west... I remember all these from the blizzards in '77 & '78, so I'm just wondering if the weather patterns are going to line up again to case problems?!!! For those of you that don't remember the winters of '76/'77 and '77/'78, you might want to 'google' it! They were REAL fun! Kept me out of school for about 6 weeks here!
