    Last time I seen it like this was back in the 80 s.Screw the global warming crap. Last thing we need is heavy rain and a warm spell to cause a ice jam up the river like it did about 10 years ago that causedall that flooding up in Yardley

      This is something called “winter”. You should look up the difference between “weather” and “climate”. You might be surprised.

        Leave it to a douche bag like you to be a real ahole. I was making a observation . Again last time we had a hard freeze thaw then rain a ice jam formed up river and massive flooding occured in bucks country and new jersey. I should know. I was a emt at the time in bucks country so again dont call me stupid. I have been out in the elements mors than you and I know what “climate” is douche bag! And I know what weather is . so next time keep your comments to your self before opening your smart mouth

          IF you knew the difference, you would not have made an asinine comment like< " Screw the global warming crap." based on a few days of cold weather….
          And before accusing someone of being a "smart mouth" you might want to check your potty mouth. It makes you sound like a petulant 8 year old.

    It was frozen even more in 2001/2002. Pretty cool to see though, I think.
