It's March. March is supposed to symbolize the beginning of spring with flowers blooming, birds chirping and people shedding winter coats in favor of light jackets.

Instead, Winter Storm Vulcan is barreling through the Great Lakes and into New England, bringing biting winds, heavy snow and a prolonged case of cabin fever.

We can't change the weather, but we can help you have a little fun during this never-ending winter. Our idea: Once the storm dies down and it's safe to venture outside, snap a "Vulcan Snowfie," then send it to us here at The Weather Channel!

In case you're wondering what on earth a "snowfie" is, it's a selfie taken outside in the snow. For this storm, kick the snowfie idea up a notch by sporting your best Vulcan salute.

Viewers from Ohio to Vermont have already submitted their Vulcan Snowfies. Want to join in the fun? Snap your #VulcanSnowfie and then send it to us via Twitter or Facebook.

Could a single big late–season storm have a significant impact on the California drought? A 'Hail Mary' storm event? Normally by this time of the year (April 10th) California would have already received at least 90% of its rainy-season precipitation total and any additional rain or snowfall would have little impact so far as the current drought is concerned. However, back in late April 1880, one of the most intense storms ever to pound the state occurred. Here are the details.

What the 5th IPCC Assessment Doesn't Include

By Angela Fritz
September 27, 2013

Melting permafrost has the potential to release an additional 1.5 trillion tons of carbon into the atmosphere, and could increase our global average temperature by 1.5°F in addition to our day-to-day human emissions. However, this effect is not included in the IPCC report issued Friday morning, which means the estimates of how Earth's climate will change are likely on the conservative side.
