Forgot what year that was...

... Anyway, I was too lazy to remove what I had already typed in the post when I realized the date was different than what I was replying to.

And now you've spent much longer explaining it than it would have taken to fix. The best kind of irony.  :-P

Yeah, that irony wasn't lost on me as I was typing that reply.  Nor is it lost on me that I'm typing even more now...

The December 2013 storm was pretty historic for everyone outside of Dallas. It shut down some schools till Christmas.

I was in Dallas right after that. I remember needing to wear a sweatshirt outside, which I wasn't planning on.

Whether a team makes the playoffs isn't comparable to whether they are above .500. Part of making the playoffs is getting the wins when you need them to get in, which Brady/Belichick always found a way to do. That's skill. Being above .500 or below .500 is just however things shake out. That's luck.

The most intense polar vortex has came. Imagine if you were in northern big cities like St Petersburg Russia, It would be quite similar to that. Or even Pyongyang

Don't those cities get as cold as what happened in Dallas a few weeks ago? Global warming is fucking up everything.

For the record, Saint Petersburg got warmer than Dallas both days.

Does anybody remember the 1974 Rankin-Bass Christmas Special "The Year Without a Santa Claus?" One key point is that Mrs. Claus negotiated some deal between the Miser Brothers where Snow Miser would send snow to "Southtown" for a day, while Heat Miser was trying to send heat to the North Pole. Right after that period, I started to notice in real life the south was getting severe winters and the north was getting warm ones.

To me that seemed like a disturbing coincidence. However looking back at history, I realized there were other periods where the south had extreme cold before all of us were born.
