Hmmm, and more rain means a "moderation," in the strength of storms? Tell that to the folks in New England that just saw the worst winter in 30 years. Tell that to the folks in the Midwest battling the highest river crests in history (or close to it in many places). Ya, we're seeing great examples of the moderate weather producing, "more rain."

Just reporting in from New Hampshire, and I've got to say that this winter wasn't all the meteorologists made it out to be.* Remember, the Weather Channel needs their ratings so they tend to way over-hype the "storm." Almost every dusting of snow is labeled "Storm of the Century!"

* Not that I regret missing one of the major storms by being on a cruise ship in the Southern Carribean. :)
