Happy birthday, Big Green Chauvanist!

Jim, Spokane tied a record yesterday for snowfall for the date and Lewiston, ID, about 50 miles south of me, nearly doubled their record for snowfall for the date, a record that was 100 years old. And 4-6 inches more predicted for today. That tells you all you need to know about our Northwest winter. :angry: :P.

Yep, hope springs eternal for the Marginals. They should do very well or they should stink or they should be somewhere in between depending on what prognosticator you listen to. No consensus when it comes to the Marginals!!!!
