Global warming's a bear ain't it?

Brrr… 49 States Have Snow Cover, Average Temperature 11 deg. F (Video)

So much for global warming…
The average temperature in the United States today is 11 deg. F. which is fully 9 deg. (!) colder than at any time last winter (20 deg. F).

49 states have snow cover.

Every state except Florida has snow cover today including Alaska and the mountain peaks in Hawaii.
Only Florida is without snow today.

Snowed a bit yesterday..........maybe an inch or 2. In the 20's and windy all day.

Wild weather rocks the US: Three dead as South and Northeast begin clean up from brutal winter storm while landslide fears spread across the West Coast as record-breaking rainfall begins
  • At least three people died in weather related accidents in Oregon, Maine and Kentucky over the weekend
  • Former Mississippi Gov. William Winter is in intensive care after falling on icy driveway of his Jackson home
  • On Saturday North Carolina cities Burlington, Greensboro and Roxboro received eight inches or more of snow
  • More than seven and a half inches of snow fell at JFK airport on Saturday, causing numerous flight delays
  • Connecticut authorities were forced to close Interstate 91 in both directions after a 25-car pileup
  • In California up to 12 inches of rain is expected over the weekend in lower-lying areas that could see flooding
  • The combination of heavy rain and melting snow could trigger worst flooding in at least 20 years in state

Yeah it's not half bad, it was 7 degrees here this morning, I turned off the a/c.
I'm saving a ton on AC costs this winter too. It's a beautiful thing!

I'm sure there are a lot of highly paid graduates of 'higher' 'education' working on the whys and wherefores.

Fact is, the Sun and variables in the Earths rotation cause the 'weather'/'climate change'

Bottom line is.,.,.,adapt or die..

I may not be a highly paid graduate figuring out ways to blame everything on global warming, but I do have a theory about these cold snaps and polar vortex's. It's warmer air on the other side of the World pushing North that then displaces colder air over the top of the Earth.
Case in point, Scandinavian countries just experienced their warmest new years on record, and over the following week, we in the western hemisphere just happened to get a big push of polar air. Similar happened just before those polar vortex's we got over the past few winters. The opposite tends to happen when we get unseasonably high temps in our Northern Latitudes here. It pushes the cold air back their way.
...but we're told it's all caused by human caused global warming.

Stockholm just had its warmest New Year's Eve in 157 years

Edited to add: this is also proof that we don't live on a flat Earth.

Sorry for O/T:
Watched a bit today, guy calls his girlfriend from the moon base on "TV phone" tells her "this phone call costs a lot".
Remember long distance in 1968? Moon base to Japan must have been $10,000 a minute back then.

Agree sir. I took my dog for a walk this fine morning in a light jacket.
18 dry degrees is way to pleasant for a long heavy overcoat.

We get the cold here in Ohio, however, I wouldn't call it a dry cold, not when it's overcast. Could use some sun here, would feel better even at 20 degrees. Was down to 6 overnight, up to 23 now, but feels more like a damp cold cuz the sun is not out. Clouds are supposed to break up a little around noon maybe see the sun, gotta see some sun.

Back when I was a teenager--55 years ago?--I remember seeing photos of my cousins from Pueblo, CO walking around outside in their short pants and shirts with no jackets or gloves when there was snow on the ground. I think there is something to this dry cold story; it's not nearly as bad as the damp variety.

I remember walking around on the Kudam in Berlin in a thin shirt at about 15 below zero.

Liquid antifreeze drinking helped me handle the cold.

There is. It is due to the fact that the thermal conductivity of air increases as the humidity level rises.

good part is "drifters" will be moving back to their ghetto city slums and leaving northern rural areas... Housed & fed, rather than doing like the locals have for centuries = work hard from spring to fall, and have reserves for the cold months...

"The cricket and the ant" fable comes to mind.,..

I was in Cocoa Beach today and didn't find a Jeannie, but I did see some college kids from Wisconsin rowing around in the Banana River. The beach was nearly empty it was 47* this morning and warmed up to 63* by the afternoon.
