Attention Drudge Report: No Winter in Canada!!!

Yeah, Drudge Report always runs weather stories. They comb the world for unusual weather phenomena.

Today, for example, they are linking this article:

Barcelona hit with heaviest snowfall in 25 years

I would like to give a modest suggestion for a headline to the editors at Drudge. It is:

Canada Gets No Winter


Not a Single Snowflake to Be Found in Canada

Today is March 9. Forecasts across the country call for highs above freezing across the board, with very mild overnight lows slightly below freezing. In the far north, normally the land of perpetual -20, -30, -40 temps, the mildness continues.

Forecast high today in Whitehorse: -2, Yellowknife: -3, Iqaluit: -15.


The high temperatures have been in effect throughout most of the country ALL WINTER. There was a nice little two or three-week period of snowy days, just to give us a white Christmas here in Montreal, but that has been about it. There have only been a few days that a Montrealer would call cold all winter.

This coming weekend is the St. Patrick's Day Parade in Montreal. Normally one of the biggest St. Patrick's Day Parades in the world, if not the biggest, I predict this year will top them all. Accuweather is calling for a high of +8 C Sunday, which should mean a huge crowd in the 100s of thousands.

Here's an idea - announce a demonstration to protest inaction over global warming and call it for downtown Montreal on parade day - LOL. That would be on a par with the disinformation tactics practiced by the Drudges and Fox Newses of the world.

Where did winter go? I would like to see a story on that in Drudge. Like it will ever happen.

Just want to mention that I have completely written off Drudge as a new source or even a counterpoint. Since Obama's election it has become nothing but a shrill and predictable propaganda portal offering no insight into anything.
