David,
A few years ago the Global Warmers predicted that our grand children were not likely to know snow. Now that it's snowing. the prediction is that global warming brings more snow. Global warming predictions rarely happen. (The Warmers tour ship trapped in the Antarctic went to check the condition of the melting ice. Oops!)

The latest predictions us is SW Connecticut is 1 deg F tonight.
I think it will be much colder. This is very unusual in that we have coastal waters that moderate temperatures here.

During the the American Revolution which coincided with the little ice age, long Island Sound froze over. Prussian mercenaries were deserting by walking across Long Island Sound.

It's so darn cold on the way to work this morning I saw a husky dog froze to a fire hydrant with a back leg in the air. Now that's cold.

With the current weather my Scamp looks pretty forlorn with its mantle of snow surrounded by drifts.

Current weather is a different thing than climate which has a much broader scope and longer time frame. I'm no expert on climate prediction but I can safely say weather is pretty cold outside to go camping today, and tomorrow don't look a whole lot better. Just in case anyone was thinking of avoiding the Mich. mosquito and deer fly population by camping this weekend.

Ya Jon, but what's the wind chill?

Cool Some history

I recall trying to start a car in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1961 when it was -28 F!

I also recall that that year home heating propane tanks in central Wisconsin were too cold for the propane to evaporate, and they knew exactly at what temperature that happens -45F!!

It was sometime around then (1963) that Lake Michigan froze over, which had not happened since 1936

I had a SAAB that started on a -25 degree day in Milwaukee in the 1980's.

Understanding of course that
a) The O.P's intention doesn't appear to me to be political in nature.
and
b) Most folks really only care about the weather that's happening TO them:

It's important to remember that the word "global" means "worldwide". In point of fact, 2013 has been the warmest year worldwide since temperatures were widely recorded/reported beginning around 1880. Link

And for those of y'all that are getting buried under snow- send some our way! There's been so little here that the Snoqualmie ski season hasn't even begun yet- link

we're getting pummelled with bllizzards, high winds and low temps. today was -30C.
call me crazy but i really don't mind the cold. i'd much rather have it cold than icy.

we've now got as much snow on the ground as we normally have by mid march.
the snowpiles are enormous and the kids, still on christmas vacation til monday,
are having a blast tobogganing and snowboarding.

but i have to give kudos to the snow clearing crews in this darn city because they have consistently been A++++ for all of the 18 years we've lived here. no other city we've lived in has even come close to the exemplary job of keeping roads clear and safe as moncton does.

stay warm everyone. it's a good night to snuggle up to something/someone warm.
if that doesn't work for you, perhaps a hot water bottle would suffice...or a hot toddy.

I called Al Gore and he said that this is all a figment of our imaginations........LOL

I'm looking for a more pleasant summer this year as this freezing should be
dealing with some of the bug problems we've had before.

Choose your data range and you can prove anything.

The reality is sea levels have risen an average of 1/2" per year for the last 10,000 years. Sea levels were 400' lower back then. Even 10,000 years is an inadequate sample period, but far better than berry picking recent data.

I suppose the warmist's would be equally comfortable blaming either domesticated cow flatulence (methane) or George Bush for all 10,000 years of that significant change.

Arctic sea ice grew by 60% last year, we have record cold this year, and all the facts don't matter to warmist's who we know falsify and skew data to support their religious beliefs and grant money. Scientific credibility? Consensus? More like religion and faith.

In the top ten reasons for climate change mankind doesn't even make the list.

What ever happened to it's freeking cold, or it's not the heat it's the humidity? Or my personal favorite, at least it's a dry heat, hello? that sweat running into my eyes is not "dry".

I have had some very long discussions on global climate with folks holding different views on the subject, don't recall anyone changing their mind or anything really getting resolved. Doubt it will get figured out here. Lots of strong opinions that lead nowhere but to counter post by people holding opposite view.

At least the impossible to resolve debates on towing capacity and trailer tires has something to do with FGRV's and camping. Global warming debate not so much.

Can we go back to the more pleasant topic of sub zero temperatures and the piles of snow?
