We're all going to freeze to death because of Global Warming.
 
2013-01-15 09:31:00 AM
Well, it's a pretty mild 13 where I am.
 
2013-01-15 09:31:40 AM
Don't worry. It's a dry cold.
 
2013-01-15 09:31:44 AM
But it's a dry ice.

I lived in Sierra Vista Arizona in 1989 when it snowed 1/4 inch.

All hell broke loose, it was great.

44 degrees in pheonix... Well, in the city proper that's freaking cold becasue the structures and streets hold so much heat.
Get out into the desert a bit and the temp drops like a freaking rock after the sun goes down.

Twenty-one degrees in Tucson this morning.
No shiat.

Hell, around here, 44 would send the girls back to their closets to break out their sundresses and short shorts.

Now you know how we feel when the rest of the country freaks out over 90 degree temps.

A HIGH temperature of 44 degrees is not unheard of in Phoenix. That can happen as a result of a rare winter rain, for example. It's the LOW temperatures below freezing, night after night, that is so unusual.

26º here right now in southern Arizona. The pads on some of my prickly pear snapped off in the freeze last night.

This finally conclusively debunks global warming, and not a moment too soon. The large impoverished Mexican immigrant population in Arizona can stop worrying about contributing to global warming as they burn trash to stay warm.

Drove into work at 5:30 this morning, and it was 19 degrees.

It was 60 degrees in NYC this past Sunday. We deserve it after the hurricane.

Sounds like you should see your doctor! (rim shot) A thank yew! :)

It was cold on the walk to work this morning (right in the heart of DT Phoenix) but I always remind myself there could be snow and ice to accompany it. Then it's not so bad.

I live in Hereford, and we were at 14 last night, still only 15 this morning. And we got 3 inches of snow about 2 weeks ago, it was beautiful, but didn't last long.
 
2013-01-15 09:58:08 AM
I moved here from PA, and the one thing that drives me crazy when we get these cold snaps is that I have to wrap the pipes going into my house. I've never lived anywhere else where they left pipes outside in the elements. The last time we had a cold snap, my sprinklers burst - again, something I wouldn't expect to have to deal with living in Southern AZ.

I remember a few years ago we got a few inches (maybe 3-4) of snow (nowhere near what we used to get in PA), and the entire freaking city of Tucson damn near shut down. About 3/4 of the people I worked with didn't come in that day, and there were just a few cars on the street. It was glorious!

It is way worse to have cold and snow in places where they're ill-equipped to handle it.
 
2013-01-15 10:01:27 AM
Meanwhile it's flirted with 60 in NYC for the past couple days.

farkin jet stream, how does it work?
 
2013-01-15 10:02:42 AM
31 in Dallas and we're dealing with snow.
 
2013-01-15 10:03:18 AM
Will we get 100's of panic stories on global cooling now? Like we did in the 70's? Maybe we should just wait as I still think this is just how things go and if we are realistic this is why people have migrated every thousand years or so as with the weather......hey it's a thought~

Yeah, but it's only this way for about three weeks and by mid-February, we're right back into blessed warmth.

Meanwhile, because of a strong reverse pressure differential between the Arctic Oscillation and the North Atlantic Oscillation, the general flow over most of North America is out of the southwest, keeping cold temperatures up in the Arctic and making for what will be one of the warmest and driest winters on record. Snow cover for this time in January should be around 60%, but is only 19%. So says NOAA.

We haven't had winter here yet, but only an extended autumn.

It was 46 here on Friday in Michigan, everyone was wearing shorts and had their windows down.

Having lived most of my life in cold, dark, northeastern Ohio, I will say that after being in Florida for 8 years, you get used to the 90 degree days. Then when it drops into the 40's and 50's it IS bone chilling. Wife will complain that the house is cold and the thermostat says it's 72.
 
2013-01-15 10:06:02 AM
Currently colder in Tucson at 19 than Helena, MT, at 25.

Snowbirds must be pissed.
 
2013-01-15 10:06:37 AM
Not likely - I've lived in Phoenix. I was there when temperatures got down to 32 degreees!

OMG, We were dying, Well, not really. As it turned out residents of Maricopa County didn't exdplode whent he temperature reachesed 32 degrees.

We just kind of coped with it.;

And the headline is just wrong. It got down to 32 when I lived in Phoenix and it wasn't any big deal. Yes, it made the news but nobody really cared.
 
2013-01-15 10:08:38 AM
Some perspective:

I have been in Denver the day after a front passed through dropping a modest snowfall and it was 10 degrees in the morning. I felt more comfortable that morning than I do when it's 40 degrees here in Phoenix, where I've lived for my whole life. Don't ask me to explain why that was because I don't know.

I'm convinced it's the clear skies that make it seem intolerable. A few nights ago, it was equally cold yet cloudy and it didn't phase me at all. This morning, I ran back into the house just as fast as I could.

Great can the start with the 2,000 tons of trash that migrants dump each year in our Arizona desert on their way here?

It was 18 in Las Cruces, NM this morning, and our high is supposed to be 39 today.
We get a bit cooler here than Phoenix does (about 3500' higher in elevation) but this is still about 20 degrees colder than it should be this time of year.
Gas bill might even crack $70 this month. OH NOES!!

6 below zero in Colorado Springs when I woke up this morning. It's finally winter coat weather.

Love it when my boogers freeze when I inhale.
 
2013-01-15 10:23:57 AM
Is this the thread were we tell everyone how cold it is where we live and tell the residents of Arizona to stop being a bunch of pussies?


Currently 32 degrees here in Hillsboro, Oregon, with the threat of freezing rain.

I just popped into this thread to see where AZ Farkers are from. I am actually shocked SHOCKED at how many Farkers are from/live in/know folks from my hometown of Sierra Vista. Im pretty sure a tear came to my eye. Also its 10 degress here and it was 22 below zero yesterday. I win Like a BOSS!

Well here in Texas its been in the low 20s to mid 30s for about 3 weeks, which is damn cold for around here. Then a few days ago it warmed up to 75 only to drop back down to the 20s the next day. farking Texas weather!
 
2013-01-15 10:52:02 AM
16 this morning in Sahuarita, just south of Tucson. Finally, had to break out a jacket and gloves.

Remember the snow storm of Easter a few years back. A couple inches of snow in Tucson... never seen so many cars in ditches and into trees before.
