Just finished clearing 18-22" from my driveway, not counting the 3' foot pile the plows left behind.

The only bust here is my back >:(.

Weather forecast of the פמ"ג א"א תרפ"ה




if you look in the new levush, they bring in the footnotes from the Elyah Rabbah (I think, but may be confusing with s/t else) a list of all the winters and which came true and which didn't

Basic idea is a 300+year old sefer quoting that when Rosh Chodesh Shevat (the day after the new moon following chanuka) falls out on a Wednesday as it does this year it will be a cold and snowy winter.

Watching it fall is stress inducing?

Waking up to a nice blanket of white is one of the most magnificent things.

I really don't get how that is not לא תעוננו (isn't that definition of it?)

ח  איזה הוא מעונן--אלו נותני העיתים, שאומרין באצטגנינות יום פלוני רע, יום פלוני טוב, יום פלוני ראוי לעשות בו מלאכה פלונית, שנה פלונית או חודש פלוני רע לדבר פלוני

No איצגנינות (astrology), no one saying good, bad, do or don't do. Just a siman.

And finally some halachic discussion on DDF. At least I don't feel like I'm doing bitul torah now.

I think you should change it into something like, "If you remain silent, it's a serious shaaila of bitul Torah".
