    Has the writer looked at the snowmaps lately! The last time I remember they looked this good was a long time ago!

    After reading the article, I have a couple of observations. First let me state I am not an educated man. It seems the research is based on temperature and precipitation data. It does however not include any wind data which in my opinion may play a bigger part then the 1.6F degree temperature rise. Second, while he does reference the current snowpack and precipitation numbers he must be smoking some of that recreational/medical bio-herb to reach his conclusions

    It's from the Associated Press. The author has probably never even been to the lakes out here and is regurgitating what he has heard..........

    researchers Brad Udall of Colorado State University and Jonathan Overpeck of the University of Arizona.
    HMMM! A researcher named Udall from a leftist indoctrination center in the recreational pot capital of the country and another from the Peoples Republic of Tucson?

    Can't take much stock in that one!
