End of March: more winter in the midst of "warming"

Record-breaking snow this winter season in Caribou, Maine and Canada—and it’s still coming at the dead-end of March!

I guess this empirical evidence in opposition to the evidence normally associated with global warming (e.g., a warm spell) isn’t going to be touted by the alarmists anytime soon, unless of course they use the tactic they’ve used before—everything “record-breaking” or anomalous in the weather is proof of manmade climate change, whether it’s a winter-cold/heat anomaly, a summer-heat/cold anomaly, a flood anomaly, a drought anomaly, or cyclonic storm anomaly.

We’ve always had weather anomalies; that’s why almanacs have been published—to keep a historical record of those strange weather events that HAVE ALWAYS OCCURED. However, let’s not forget what the rest of world went through this winter. The media and propagandists have tried everything they can to hold on to the pipedream of AGW; and they’re not going to give it up (even with the scientific evidence mounting out there), because there’s too much money at stake and too many reputations on the brink.

Caribou sets snowfall record:

FORT KENT, Maine — It’s official. The 2007-08 snow season in northern Maine is one for the record books. Just in time for the start of spring.

The old record of 181.1 inches of snow recorded in Caribou, set in 1955, was shattered by noontime Friday when the National Weather Service in Caribou recorded 182.5 inches of snow since the start of the season.

Tons of Snow Test a Place Where Cold Is No Stranger - New York Times:
OTTAWA — People here are divided between those longing for a few more inches of snow to set a record and others who think the 14 feet that has already landed, and mostly lingered, is more than enough.

No one needs to ask Luc Guertin his view. His front yard on a suburban street here features his personal monument to eastern Canada’s unusually prolonged, relentless and snowy winter. A snow wall, about 18 ½ feet high, 6 to 10 feet wide and 30 feet long, rises along one edge of the driveway. Standing next to a flagpole at the top, a balaclava-clad mannequin holds a snow shovel aloft in “Rocky”-style triumph. A sign, decorated with fuzzy chickens, offers outdated Easter greetings to the steady stream of sightseers who make their way to Toulouse Crescent.
