    Been colder than a ................well, you know. It's going to be colder even yet over the next few days. Been about the coldest winter on record so far.

    I'm sure glad that big Al's got my back on this. May he shrivel into a tiny stump.




    Boy it's cold. And I'm sick to boot.

    Come on chicken soup!

    What state are you in?

    After sub-freezing temps a few weeks ago, it's now pretty warm here, in the 50s.

    Global warming only occurs when Al Gore opens his mouth.

    State of confusion and denial.

    Look at a map of the US and pick one. You'll be right.

    No Drew, when the temps are above average, man caused it. When they are below average, man caused it. When they are average, man caused it.

    I heard on the new this morning that this was going to be the coldest winter since the record setting ones back in the 1970s. Remember all the hysteria back then we were entering the next Ice Age? LOLOLOLOL

    Al Gore is an idiot.

    As much as we may disagree on some things, I'll have to go with you on that one.

    The first "Green Billionaire" to be sure. And yet some folks still wonder what's in it for those that proffer the scam.

    Don't think he can bite me just now, but he sure can lick me.

    I've got a huge driveway...and the snow-blower is dead. I started shoveling this morning, and in the 1.5 hrs. it took me, there was 3/4" of new snow on the ground. When I stopped shoveling, my head, shouldes and fore-arms were covered in snow and ice....weird!!

    I could have just started all over again.....and of course every time the city plow goes by, the drive-way is closed-in again. And another storm is hitting as I type.

    Oh well.....a few beers, MW2 on the PS3, and my day is o.k.

    Freakin' snow!!!!:rofl:

    Just because it is cold in your area doesn't mean anything. From the Washington Post (Associated Press) article:

    And just because that was written in 1922 doesn't mean anything either. NOTHING TO SEE HERE.

    Oh, I see.

    It's one of those, "what are you going to believe, your eyes or what we tell you?" type of things, right?

    **sigh**

    Carrys,
    I can't tell from your post if you know this, but I was being sarcastic.

    Haven't you been paying attention, its not called Global Warming anymore, the new term now is "climate change", you see that had to change it when..... well.....it was proven that it wasn't actually warming :upeyes:.

    It was 26 last night with a wind chill of 20 and my truck was iced over and my grass was frosted over this morning. Not as bad as some....

    But I live in Central Florida.... :faint:

    It is in the news a lot but they are not sure what the damages may be yet. The local news says there is a chance of snow flurries in Brevard County, FL before the weekend.... In Miami it is raining iguanas once they get cold they shutdown for hibernation and are falling out of the trees.
