    Call me crazy but I think WWE might try to use Brock to break CM Punks title reign record.

    Wtf, how is this an inch of snow, it’s barely covering the ground and roof tops. Jb will find any way to hype cold and snow even if that means completely distorting reality

    WWE is so up and down, but Wrestlemania was good. The intercontinental title match, Daniel Bryan returns, Undertaker vs Cena, Ronda Rousey debuts, Styles vs Nokumora, and Lesnar vs Reigns were all solid.

    And a program with Styles, Bryan, and Nokumora will be great.

    I'm so happy that it's 60 degrees today and 70s tomorrow and Friday. I think warmer weather makes me happier.

    Harvey, Irma, Maria, and Nate aren't going to be used anymore as they were announced retired yesterday. Has been awhile, 2005, since we have had that many storm names retired.

    I like snow but I don't think I could be doing this in April:

    URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
    National Weather Service Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
    651 AM CDT Sat Apr 14 2018

    ...MULTI-PHASED WINTER STORM CONTINUES ACROSS THE REGION...
    ...SNOWFALL RATES AROUND ONE INCH PER HOUR LIKELY THIS
    AFTERNOON...

    .Light to moderate snow is starting to increase in coverage over
    western and southern Minnesota through southwestern Wisconsin this
    morning. This heavier round of snow will continue to move north
    through central Minnesota and west central Wisconsin late this
    morning and continue through this afternoon into this evening.
    Snowfall rates of around 1 inch per hour can be expected through
    the afternoon hours. The snow will taper down Saturday night, but
    light snow will continue into Sunday.

    A Blizzard Warning remains in effect through this evening for
    portions of west central through south central Minnesota. A Winter
    Storm Warning remains in effect to the east of the Blizzard
    Warning, including most of east central Minnesota, a portion of
    south central Minnesota, and all of west central Wisconsin. A
    Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for Morrison county
    Minnesota.

    Total snow accumulations of 8 to 15 inches are expected through
    Sunday from southwest Minnesota to east central Minnesota and
    northern Wisconsin. Totals will taper off to 4 to 8 inches across
    west central Minnesota. There will likely be a sharp gradient on
    the north side of the heavy snow band. In addition, up to a tenth
    of an inch of ice accumulation is possible in southeastern
    Minnesota into southwestern Wisconsin.

    651 AM CDT Sat Apr 14 2018

    ...BLIZZARD WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 1 AM CDT SUNDAY...

    * WHAT...Blizzard conditions. Winds gusting as high as 50 mph
    will cause whiteout conditions in blowing snow. Significant
    drifting of the snow is likely. Additional snow accumulations
    of 8 to 12 inches, with localized amounts up to 15 inches, are
    expected.

    * WHERE...Portions of central, south central, southwest and west
    central Minnesota.

    * WHEN...Until 1 AM CDT Sunday.

    * ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Travel will be very dangerous to
    impossible. Tree branches could fall.

    PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

    A Blizzard Warning means severe winter weather conditions are
    expected or occurring. Falling and blowing snow with strong winds
    and poor visibilities are likely. This will lead to whiteout
    conditions, making travel extremely dangerous. Do not travel. If
    you must travel, have a winter survival kit with you. If you get
    stranded, stay with your vehicle. The latest road conditions for
    Minnesota can be found at 511mn.org and for Wisconsin at
    511wi.gov, or by calling 5 1 1 in either state.

    There he goes again. He never seems to mention just a plain El Nino. Always throws Modoki in there and says it's going to be a great year. Saying you have an idea what a year's weather pattern will bring like ENSO is just foolish.
