    Is that the reason it was -5* Tuesday and 0* today? Everyone I've been talking to is saying it's colder than normal!

    More like we aren't going to have a Spring. It will
    go from this right to 85 and humid with no in between.
    Common here in New England.

    Ive been watching Yukon Men. Im sure its scripted and not as "remote" and deadly as they relay but its still good and I just cant imagine 10 below with high winds and having no wood. Gotta hand it to ya, it was 21 here this morning and Im about to lose function lol.

    Global warming is there but manifests as a slow year average increase, polar caps decreasing. Purportedly also responsible for the extreme weather conditions. To be honest this is a pretty "normal" winter for our area - last year was the extreme, Hurricane Sandy would have been another. Just getting cabin fever and likely will complain summer is too hot:)

    The earth has been getting warmer since the last ice age.

    But speeding up at a faster rate since the Industrial Revolution. Ice cores from the polar caps have been able to identify this... like rings on a tree tell you years with low or high moisture levels , ice cores revel levels of CO2. Increase CO2 corresponds with temperature increase... Many factors contribute and their still aren't sure what triggered abrupt climate change of last ice age

    I've watch a few bits and pieces and I have to guess it's scripted.

    If you are in a situation where you NEED wood to have heat, why would you wait till there's 4 sticks left and THEN decide... oh... hmm... maybe we need some more wood... derrr de derrrrr.

    But yeah, we get 60-70mph winds pretty much every winter and it certainly isn't any fun when it's already below zero!

    No need for air conditioning with a north wind blowing off the lake like in the photo (that's one of my daughters, she takes after her momma the most ;) I'm the one behind the camera - but the photo fit the screen name). We do get 80s & 90s in the summer - more often and for longer stretches in recent years.

    If you pellet pigs would stop burning these damn carbon neutral pellets and burn fossils like your supposed to maybe we could accelerate the warming just a bit.

    It won't take too many above average temp days to overcome what we've had so far.

    Although one asteroid strike could fix that global warming
