Snow-free... and here's why

In this neck of the woods, which usually gets a few small snowfalls in January (with the odd big one), we received hardly a trace of snow in January.
Global warming?
I hardly think so.
Remember, the prevailing winds at this time of year come out of the northwest.
What's to the northwest?
What happened in Canada in January?
An election campaign.
What does that bring?
Excessive hot air.
Hence, no snow here.
Nothing to worry about here. Move along.

UPDATE: I guess we'll be paying for a snow-free January. Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow. Six more weeks of winter ahead.
