This may come as a profound shock; but people are not homeless by choice.

 

I would feel worse for the poor lost soul who does not have a roof over his head, a warm bed to sleep in, or know where his next meal is coming from.

 

But Americans have been conditioned to have contempt for those in need; and thus there are more societies for the protection of animals than for the protection of people. 

 

Upside-down planet at its finest.

 

The ONLY THINGS that separate Every Other American from that poor soul's fate is 1/ Their bank book or 2/ They have family or friends who will take care of their material needs.

Year 3 of winter futility is going as futile as it gets. Starting to wish this were a destructive ice event for the excitement of it is pretty sad. Starting to hate and dread winter is disappointing also. Here's to drought and heatwaves in 4 months.

Thank you. To my knowledge of winters back to at least 1887 here, this is the most snowless 3 season stretch of this area's entire history. I'm just in shock at how I could get nearly the perfect pattern all winter and never have anything to work with down here. Last hope is trying to close the winter with something special but I don't see it as a real possibility.

RIP your sanity. Terrible conditions going on down there, I feel for you bud. I only have so much room to complain, what you're dealing with this year is a nightmare.

I really really don't like negativity too much but if there's a positive way to spin being in this 80 by 40 mile Hell zone of winter death I'd like to hear it. :lol: I'm trying to laugh about it a little bit but it's getting really difficult to. There has to be a lot of great winters coming in the future for all the crap and near misses I've seen since 2011-12. It will pass. Just not much positive to say so been staying out of the main threads. Tom does a great job.
