OH there is some upbeat moments ahead; starting late Tuesday there will be about five days of 40/50 degree weather. With street drains blocked, iced in gutters and the heavy snow pack on the ground there will be local flooding’s or water damages.
Never the less we should not complain too much. Japan is having the worst snow storms in its history. England is being buffered by winds, extraordinary high waves, and flooding not only along the coasts but along all rivers.
The Gods have frowned on Putin with 60% temperatures in Sochi just what is needed for winter games. But remember Sochi is an Oceanside town and the warmth of the Black Sea makes it a resort. The "alpine" games are in the nearby foothills and mountains of the Caucasus . Our equivalent would be the Sierra Nevadas and Los Angeles.
