This means global warming is a hoax and Ted Cruz is automatically President of Canada.

But it means you will have to fly there and since it's your first flight it will crash. And it will be the day after you win the lottery.

Meanwhile, in southeast Louisiana, I'm going to have to get more hot chocolate fixings and my work will probably be closed tomorrow due to the second ice storm in less than a week.

Not to burst your bubble subby, but CA is around 60° and holding steady already.

Don't worry, the mudslides will put out the fires.

PNW here. What polar vortex?


It snowed here for about 15 minutes in December. That was winter, I guess.

Stephen_Falken: Not to burst your bubble subby, but CA is around 60° and holding steady already.


This.  While the vortex keeps pushing colder air down through the central US, the Pacific, Cali, Mexico, etc are all like 10+ degrees warmer, and have been all winter.

My thought is that as soon as the Vortex loses strength and moves back into northern Canada, the US is going to have a heck of a warm spring and summer.

All it means to me is we have gone from having 8 inches of ice cover on the roads to having black ice on the roads.  Not exactly an improvement.

FTFA: Minnesota Public Radio's Tim Nelson tells our Newscast Desk that it feels like it's 20-degrees below zero (or colder) in many parts of the state

Feels like -38 where I am at but only for a short time before you go numb and shiat starts falling off.

I-10 is going to be snowed over from NO to JAX by Wednesday. I thought that was interesting.

Meh.  Here in NJ, this should be the last week of bitter cold, though I am sure we'll get one of those 18-36 inch snowstorms before the frost clears.Feb is a short month, and spring is around the corner.

Walked the dog last night while the weather was reporting -35 wind chill.  It was a little cool but I was just wearing a t-shirt

Paleoclimatologists note that the Pacific Northwest was a refuge during past climate change events in which the world warmed. Of course, the geology was quite different in the distant past, but when the Earth warmed, this was one area where the warming was mitigated by the Pacific and thus where many species could survive the heat.

Conversely, it warmed quickly towards the end of the last Ice Age, which may have allowed early humans into North and South America through a coastal or inland corridor of relatively mild weather hospitable to large herds of browsers and sea mammals. (If the path was inland, it would ressemble some of the drier, more snowless areas of Siberia, where ice age herds survive today because the grass is not buried so deeply by snow in the Winter.

It was 73 here yesterday here in the outer fringes of Sacramento/Solano County in California. Get some.

Nah, you're aging backwards. Soon you'll be preborn.

Somehow i am doubting, even if California was suffering slightly colder than average weather that the polar vortex would affect Hawaii 2500 miles away . . .

/you know that state.  Over there.
 
2014-01-27 10:10:45 AM
I've gotten used to temperatures around 0 F, but it's supposed to hit -20 tonight. I'll just be happy if my sidewalks can stay shoveled for more than six hours.

My flight home yesterday took us past Mt. Shasta. I've seen more snow on it in summer than I saw yesterday. CA is screwed this year. Get ready for massive water shortages in CA and higher food prices everywhere.

Yeah, here in Arizona I've been taking the motorcycle out for the absolutely beautiful rides in the 70 degree weather... not sure what subby is on about.

What about Hawaii?
 
2014-01-27 10:17:08 AM
It was near 70 here yesterday. Now it's in the 30s.

It snowed here for about 15 minutes in December. That was winter, I guess.


We've gone from sub-zero temps...to near 40...back to single digits...to today, when it'll be creeping near 40 again (with snow possibly changing to rain).  F*#%ing weather roller-coaster.

monoski: Move the polar bears to Central Park. Global warming solved.


But can they survive on a diet of joggers, meth addicts and pigeons?

They've been reduced to eating garbage, goose eggs, and cariboo as it is. Their natural diet is big fat doe-eyed seal pups because like all Canadians, they just can't stand the unbearable cuteness of seal pups.

I was out in just a sweatshirt yesterday. Funny how 25 is balmy now.

The wind has scoured all of the snow off of my sidewalk and steps at least, but my car is half-buried.
 
2014-01-27 10:25:30 AM
All I know is it was snowing like crazy yesterday, and 20f at noon.

Then at midnight it was 39F.. and now it's 8f with a -12 wind chill.

Go home winter... You're drunk.

Then floods to wash away the mud, then earthquakes to get rid of the water, then back to GO with fires.

Oh look it's THIS thread again/still.  Let's just assume global warming is for real.  Well, duh.  The earth had been through warming/cooling stages eons before we arrived and it will continue to do so for eons after we're gone.  To think that mankind's, what?  Maybe 150 year-old "Industrial age" could have any significant impact on this planet is ridiculous.  It's the hypocritical left doing the exact same thing they constantly accuse the right of doing.  Fear-mongering.  I'm old enough to remember the 70s.  Back then we were all gonna freeze to death by 2000.  Forty years later we're all gonna burn to death.  And then, as now, we take so-called scientists at their word, even though they can't really predict with any degree of accuracy what the weather will be tomorrow.  I digress.  Back to the original point.  Humans are highly adaptable and pretty-darn smart.  We managed to put men on the moon within a few measly years of getting the first plane off the ground.  So what makes anyone think we won't devise a way of halting climate change in the next 10,000 years should the need arise?

That implies it'll rain at some point, which it wont.
