The weather is as big as a joke as the team this year.

Give us hope, then crashe us back to earth.

I feel sorry for anyone that lives in this city and doesn't make at least 15 bucks an hour.
Find the same job in another city and not deal with all the ******** of terrible roads and terrible weather.

There's weird wintery weather going on all over the country (outside of BC) and the northern/mid-western US right now. Denver just had a big blizzard earlier in the week. The good thing about a ****** spring is that it usually equals a crazy hot summer.

Yeah, sometimes, but it's usually a weird isolated event. By early April we usually get some sense of spring... it doesn't even smell like spring outside yet.

It's all because of the damn jet stream.


If only it would go over us and not under us.

We were in a drought for roughly the first 10 years of the millennium. The way I look at it the more rain and snow the better. A lot of lakes have taken a big hit in the Edmonton area would be nice to see them come back up a little. In saying that I'm refusing to shovel!

When I read that there was more snow coming that was my attitude as well but I don't think that we're going to be able to avoid it this time unlike two weeks ago.

Climate change my ass,if climate change really does exist we would continue with the droughts,and not have all this precipitation that we've been getting.

Had quite the little storm last night over here. Freezing rain and lots of wind.

A bunch of trees leaning right over because of the ice on them and a handful even completely de-rooted around my property.

I just want spring already.

My relatives in Ottawa are freaking out about this "spring" so far. They can usually crow to me about how nice the weather is... not so right now. None of us can.

Yeah, doesn't help that most of Ontario was spoiled last year too.

We had shorts and t-shirt weather in early March last year.

I'm not too upset about the snow expected tomorrow. It will be gone soon. Having said that, I am eager to get my motorcycle out.

Hire Feaster. He's pretty good at throwing the Flames under the bus.

Crosbie on Global doesn't think that the snow will accumulate all that much. I really hope she's right.

There are always a few people protesting against the cold weather in Edmonton during first few weeks of spring. I've seen people wearing t-shirts and shorts in +5, +7 weather.

Then once Feaster gets the Snow melted you could hire Tambo to come fertilize the Garden. Everyone knows he's full of ****!
