Re: Whiskey Tango Foxtrot 2013

As pleasant as this winter has been, if we don't get some significant snow or rain soon, we're all in trouble.

Many stories lately of worried farmers throughout the northern US. Without snow to help recharge the ground, there could be big crop issues. Much of the country is in a strong to extreme drought. The Mississippi is getting so low (after big flooding in 2011!) that barge traffic could be halted.

Get ready to pay more for your food.

Well that sucks for the Farmers. If I don't have to cut my lawn every week though...

While I like the fact that we have not had any snow (I don't have to shovel the driveway! ), I know we need to get some kind of precipitation soon, otherwise we're all going to be in trouble.

Makes me think back to last July. The above picture is along the Fox River near Batevia, Illinois. Water levels were really low last year. I would hate to see how low they get this year if we don't get some significant rainfall soon.

You're forgetting gas. The oil companies will use the global warming story and jack up the prices this Spring.
