Apparently temps were 7°F to 18°F lower than normal. Will the Hot Air Cult apologize to their families . . . ? I think not.

They’re calling it climate change now, and every unusual weather event is proof of it!

The propagandists at NBC owned Weather Channel have started assigning hurricane-like names to winter storms.

And suddenly I read a post on facebook by a youngster that “they had to do this because climate change has made the winter storms more frequent and intense.”

Last week’s “blizzard” was a joke compared to 78.
But the progressives in the MSM do a pretty good job of selling their sh!t.

You made a very common mistake. When it is too hot, it is climate change. When it is too cold, it is weather. When the weather is severe, it is climate change. When it is calm it is, well, just weather.

Yes. Here in Connecticut we had 8 inches of fluffy snow, during winter storm "Freyr". Which happened on a Saturday, during Christmas break.

It took me 30 minutes to clear the driveway, my sidewalk and the neighbors sidewalks.

< sacrcastic tone of agony = on> Oh how we suffered. This was soooo unusual...it never snows in New England in December. Oh the pain. Will this winter never end? < sarcasm = off>

It is actually quite entertaining watching the Weather Channel shills trying to push their anti-science global warming beliefs. On the one hand, they were talking about the lack of snow this season in a couple of cities and the drought caused by the lack of snow. Then on the the other hand they had to mention the cold and snow that occurred across all of West Texas last night. The US right now actually has the most snow coverage on this day and month then in the past 10 years at least. The depth of snow in some places in not as deep as normal, and of course that is all the anti-science global warmers talk about.

USA – Current snow cover most in 10 years

And here is the current snow cover as of late yesterday. Will be more across Texas in tomorrows historic map.

They could use a little global warming over that way.

With a population of 1.242 BILLION, over 25,000 people die in India EVERY DAY. 100 isn't even a statistical anamoly. It's meaningless. Another pathetic attempt to stir up climate panic y the MSM.

The weather department said temperatures were 4 to 10 degrees Celsius (7 to 18 degrees Fahrenheit) below normal in the state.

Doesn't "normal" have a range? Wow, a mere 7 degree drop from the norm and suddenly there are frozen bodies lining the streets.

Although the reported temperatures in the article don't seem that threatening, it's all relative to what you are used to. For instance, I was in Miami Beach about twenty years ago when one night it dropped to about 48 degrees and two people froze to death.

“Although the reported temperatures in the article don’t seem that threatening, it’s all relative to what you are used to. “

Or what you are prepared for.....
An average homeless guy here in Boston is all bundled up in wintercoat, cardboard, plastic sheets and papers. A homeless guy in Maimi or LA may not be all that well prepared to survive a sudden 40 degrees temperature dip.

Oh yes, that's quite true. Still, I would imagine that the average homeless guy in Boston could survive a 48 degree night in a Speedo. In fact, isn't 48 degrees in Boston an occasion to break out the Hawaiian shirts?

On new year eve I saw a bunch of college girls in Cambridge wearing almost nothing but skimpy dresses at 30 degrees temperature trotting in heels over black ice. Saving money on coat check.
