I agree. Shirley Temple the movie star was way before our time. But because of film, younger generations were able to watch that talented little girl sing & dance across the screen . Same for Judy Garland in the Wizard of OZ. However, I did get to see Judy Garland in concert back in 1967.

In the 50's everyone had their favorite movie star. After seeing Doris Day in Calamity Jane at the age of 10, Ms. Day became my very favorite movie star for many years. She was only 29 yrs. old when she made that film. I went on to see most all of her films 5 or 6 times. Doris Day will turn 90yrs old on April 3rd. We are rapidly losing all of the stars from the golden age of Hollywood. Only a few left now. Same for the GIs' & Rosie the Riveters' of WW11. Thankfully for the movies & the documentaries these incredible individuals will live on forever.

Not brutal but perhaps colder. Still nothing compared to where many of us came from which has truly turned for the worse. Remember the movie The Day After Tomorrow?

I bet the Triangle natives remember the record setting snow storm in 2000. Over 20" of snow.

So far in Wester New England it's coming in like a lamb and most likely out like a lion, totally opposite of the old saying about the month of March. Looks pretty harmless this morning (light lazy snow) but by noon we're supposed to get several inches per hour and later tonight freezing rain before back to snow.

SCIPP (Southern Climate Impacts Planning Program) calls for "increasing resiliency and preparedness for weather and climate extremes now and in the future across the South-Central United States..."

Has been mentioned often in the news and by the locals. You guys really got hit harder than expected and more to come. Most people don't have shovels.

Light faint snowflakes here for one hour now on the coast of MA. CT has really gotten hit, don't know what will happen here. If the warm air gets here in time it could give us sleet or rain instead of more piles of the white stuff. Winters are colder, summers are hotter--and that's not just age.

Very fine flakes began around nine. Since then we barely have an inch on the ground. Horsies are out until two, then they come in to be dried out before bedtime.

Going into town tomorrow morning for the chiropractor should be an adventure. I'm hoping NOT!

in_ne, I have to agree somewhat, last summer was worse than Florida and this has got to be hands down the most coldest and snowiest winter i the last twenty years. It seems like it, anyway.
