    “I think it’s clear mainstream media needs to do a better job of reporting on rural America.” – Chuck Todd, NBC News Despite the fact that Stella was a blockbuster - dropping up to 4 feet of snow along with wind gusts over hurricane force throughout  many rural areas in the East -  you haven’t heard much about it. “Where’s the snowblower?” “Right outside the door, honey.”That’s primarily due to the fact that New York City was spared. And despite what Chuck Todd said everybody knows that NYC is the epicenter of the country and nothing outside it’s borders...

    How do we explain the deep snow in Hawaii to PC Thinkers? Some ideas: All of that global warming which bulled its way into the Arctic (which by now must be as hot as the Sahara) drove the cold air fleeing before it all the way to Hawaii. Hillary supporters all promised each other, "It'll be a Cold Day in Hawaii before Trump is President!!" And it goes without saying they're always right. Mother Nature, having heard the catastrophic news of Trump's Selection, is desperately lashing out in one last Herculean attempt to save life on the planet from being...

    Pennsylvania city of Harrisburg is STILL plowing snow from January blizzard despite it being 70 degrees A Pennsylvania city is still clearing snow left from a record-breaking blizzard that occurred two months ago despite it being 70 degrees. An estimated 15,000 tons of snow from the city of Harrisburg and surrounding municipalities was piled high on City Island following a 30-inch snowfall in January. And for the last three weeks, city employees have been using gas-powered burners to help melt the remaining piles of snow before its baseball team's opening day in April, according to Pennlive.

    The State Department on Friday sought to delay its final release of emails from Hillary Clinton's personal server, blaming a massive snowstorm hitting Washington as well as an internal "oversight." In a court filing, the department asked a federal court to delay by a month the Jan. 29 deadline for it to release the last batch of roughly 55,000 pages of Clinton's emails believed to be work-related. The emails, thousands of which have been released on a monthly basis since last year, have become a constant headache for Clinton's front-runner Democratic presidential campaign. More than 1,300 of the emails from...

    Whether or not Planned Parenthood and the mainstream media ignore them, there will ALWAYS be busloads of students ready to head to March for Life protests, even when getting back home means getting through the generation’s worst blizzard. Miracle searchers don’t have to delve into the long ago past searching for miracles from Above. They only have to go back to Sunday past when a ‘Miracle in the Snow’ proved that not even the worst blizzard of a generation can blow out the candle of faith. With high winds driving 30 and more inches of snow, Winter Storm ‘Jonah’ blew...

    Over 500 Catholic school students from the Midwest, left the annual March for Life in DC early on Friday.  The reason for leaving was to get away from the impending blizzard, Winter Storm Jonas.  They didn't make it out in time, and got stranded on the Pennsylvania Turnpike West, in the mountains of Pennsylvania, for over 24 hours.  During that time they bore witness to their faith in amazing ways. Reports are that the students shared their food, their shelter (busses), and more with stranded travelers.  While their fellow travelers were inside warming up and finding nourishment, the students decided to...

    March for Life organizers had pledged that neither a blizzard forecast nor icy cold temperatures would keep them from descending on the nation’s capital Friday for the annual pro-life event - but returning home is proving to be a more difficult task. A massive winter storm that rolled through the mid-atlantic and Northeast Friday night has reportedly left busloads of march participants stuck on the side of major highways. Six buses carrying a group of 330 students and chaperons who traveled to the District of Columbia from Omaha, Nebraska have been stuck on the Pennsylvania turnpike for 11 hours due...

    I’ve seen snowstorms take the blame for all sorts of things over the years, but this one may be a first. The State Department is due to release the last batch of roughly 55,000 of Hillary Clinton’s emails at the end of the month (before the voting begins) but they’re asking a judge for an extra month to complete their work. One of the reasons for the requested extension is apparently the snowstorm.
