A huge snowstorm has hit New York City, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Long Island, New Hampshire, New Jersey and Maine. In Milford, Conn., the snow reached a depth of 38 inches. Is that a big deal? Well, it is if you said snow was a thing of the past, what with climate change:

According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”…“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said.
