    David, Thanks for your comment. Obviously, we have once again proven we're not perfect with the "fig" typo, but I for one enjoyed your humorous reply! Take Care, Steve

    Good one, Goodwilly. However, our local weather has more to do with jetstream and ENSO than Gore, thankfully. CO2 absorbs and re-emits at 2.5 microns and 15.7 microns in a tight bandwidth. Water vapor does so in wide width around 6.5 microns and has negative feedback. CO2's primary calculated effect happens in the first 20 to 50 ppm and the calculated CO2 load before the modern industry was 280. Which means we had all the CO2 warming we're going to get before Ford rolled the first car off of the line.

    We're enjoying the snow. I read the web forecast discussions regularly and want to thank you for doing them. The one for 3:15p.m. Friday, 12 February was interesting. How many newtons of energy must be removed from a cubic meter of "very dense fog" in order to produce "freezing fig"? :-)

    Just outside Antlers we received 5 inches total snow yesterday. I wonder where our weather watcher lives? We always get a rather different reading than he does and we are 3 miles outside town.

    Why is it when it rains or snows people on the news cast always seem to say "We are hoping for Sunshine, something along that line. Why can't we be happy for the rain or snow? It causes some road hazards but we need these weather conditions also. It is all a blessing from the Lord.

    So what does all this snow do for Al Gore's global warming propaganda? Oh, I know, it all was just a figment of our imaginations and never really happened. Besides, if you can't believe a career politician, who can you believe? ;)
