Vortex schmortex

I now know what the dinosaurs felt like!  Yeah, gee it's a little colder than usual... The snow is getting deeper... hmmm.

Maybe we can agglomerate enough snow mass to change the planet's CG and wobble this patch of ice around to the the equator!  I'll keep that warm notion in mind as I throw another log on the fire.

What IS this polar vortex thing?  Why did it take a sudden interest in Michigan?  Is this a Canadian plot?  Hmmmm? Can we light a big bonfire somewhere around Muskegon (see map below) and make it go away? Has anybody checked out Hudson's Bay.... strange stuff going on up there...

GAH, so today's "Lake Effect" Warning has changed to.... TADA -
