OK, I don't think Linus is reading my Google Plus stream nor was he actually quoting me but this did raise my eyebrows when I read it. I commented about having a "heatwave in Michigan" a few days ago and searching that phrase reveals only Michigan news sources for that phrase. So where did he get that phrase?. I'm sure he's reading other news sources but you never can tell, right?

Anyways, it snowed where he is and apparently he doesn't like it, lol. What? A Finn complaining about snow? That is funny.  hysterical.gif

here's the post


here's the pic of his patio furniture all covered with snow, lol.


Luv ya, Linus and watch out for more snow.  hysterical.gif

Wow and we have been having a real 'heat wave' ... Spring has sprung and we have had 60s overnight and 70s-80s during the day and rain/thunderstorms off and on with beautiful sunshine here in Virginia.

should heatwave (heat wave) be one or two words? Where's a grammar cop when you need one?  hysterical.gif

LOL!

Well as for heat wave/heatwave, it would depend on whether you were referring to a heat wave or the band Heatwave ...

Your winter got stuck on its way over to you and wrecking the Pacific NorthWest's usual weather sad.gif

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

I can speak for those of us in Virginia that I think we skipped Winter.  Went from Fall to Spring.  And just think.  Last "WINTER" we had 18 inches of snow on the ground Christmas day 2010 in Virginia Beach.

I personally think that Linus does read your google + stream Steve.  He should have given credit to the author.  hysterical.gif

Have a great weekend everyone!!!!
