In Virginia, the weather also has changed dramatically. Recently arrived residents in the northern suburbs, accustomed to today’s anemic winters, might find it astonishing to learn that there were once ski runs on Ballantrae Hill in McLean, with a rope tow and local ski club. Snow is so scarce today that most Virginia children probably don’t own a sled. But neighbors came to our home at Hickory Hill nearly every winter weekend to ride saucers and Flexible Flyers.
Snowfall where he grew up in Virginia has been generally increasing for 115 years, with three of the snowiest years occurring since 2010. (2015 below is estimated) Kennedy’s childhood in the 1960’s was very snowy for a few years, but was the exception, not the rule.
Being a typical progressive, he just wants someone to blame for something.
