The seemingly endless winter dumped a half a foot snow on the ground in parts of the South, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, and many areas Tuesday morning saw something even more unusual in March: a blast of arctic air that sent temperatures plummeting into the single digits.

It’s become very popular to name tropical storms, not just hurricanes but also lesser storms. Can’t we go macro instead of micro and now refer to this as an Algore Winter?

This winter has just been brutal. I work in transportation logistics, and there is flat out no capacity anywhere. My drivers do not want to go the Northeast, especially.

My wife works for a towing/wrecker company. This week they were towing semis stranded in the lots where they just made deliveries. And plenty of other places. It’s been a madhouse. They’ve had to rescue more trucks than autos.

OMG. That's what they're calling Friendship these days? Wasn't "BWI" post-modern enough?

What was that line from The Magnificent Ambersons, again?

“Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport broke a 141-year-old record low temperature”

Wow! I did not know they had airports 141 years ago. Learn something new everyday.

What's with all the ridiculously long names attached to municipal facilities in majority-Black cities? Is a segment of our population so ignorant that it doesn't realize the joke it makes of itself? "Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport" is a name so overdone that it's silly. The fictional movie character "President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho" is sounding more real with each passing day, and that's very sad.

If this global warming continues any more, I am going to need to get a warmer jacket.

This article seems to me to be a major departure for the AP. It’s an article on “extreme weather” that makes absolutely NO mention of Catastrophic Global Warming. It may be that they are shamed into a clear understanding that they are just met with derision when they attempt to link cold weather to Global WARMING.
