I can remember several years where it snowed in April. The blizzard of 77 or 78, lots of snow and it was April. Newsday did a lot of research as usual. Im betting on a white Easter. History will tell you that Long Island gets hit usually in the later winter. Hello, Newsday?!!!!
That's very true, BUT with the way the JetStream has set itself up, it's very unlikely, unless we get a serious cold snap BEFORE the storm - what's really funny is that friends of mine down south in the carolinas have gotten alot of snow this season already

Here we go ... Not only do we have excellent reporting in our local bird-cage-liner of a paper (because, you know, this IS news)... but now we're gonna here from Al Gore and the rest of the global warming pinheads ... Why did Newsday even open this door?... What's next? An article on ManBearPig?

I heard a rumor that there may be a two part story of how it is light during the day and dark at night. I never would have known that it did not snow here otherwise. Thank you Newsday.
A little snow would be nice!
