Weve become weather wimps.
As the world warms, the United States is getting fewer bitter cold spells like the one that gripped much of the nation this week. So when a deep freeze strikes, scientists say, it seems more unprecedented than it really is. An Associated Press analysis of the daily national winter temperature shows that cold extremes have happened about once every four years since 1900.

You Freepers are a bunch of wimps who can't stand a little global warming!
They are going to cling onto this global warming meme to the bitter (cold) end, arent they?
The Global Warming religion will refuse to believe the truth when Hell freezes over.
Personally, I am going to invest in all the long handled underwear stock I can get my hands on. Its is the wave of the future.
Does the writer mean "as the world warmed twenty years ago?" The world has NOT been warming for the past 18 years. Climate change takes place over hundreds of years.
Does the climate change every year because some winters are warmer or colder than other winters? Does the writer know the difference between natural weather variation and climate change? Statistics and science are no longer needed these days of low information voters, bureaucrats, and lawmakers.
It actually seems like Winters have gotten less severe around here compared to 20-40 years ago. Less snow, less cold, but that’s just me.
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls the climates of all its planets.
3. The earth is one of the suns planets.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
Hey seth... blow it out your well worn commie arse!
That idiot needs to come to Wisconsin so I sit his stupid butt out on a frozen lake when its minus 40F and then ask him how global warming is going for him?
Never heard them called long handled underwear. Do they have..long handles?
He is a communist... he knows that he is lying... he just thinks we are all dumb enough to buy into it while we freeze to death... he knows.
Please post that a few hundred more times. It’s so original and well-thought-out that nobody will ever get tired of seeing it.
We had snow for the opening of deer hunting season in November. Seems like the old days.
Might want to invest in Hot Hands too. I know they are seasonal, but if these cold spells keep up they will make them over a longer period of time.
I invest in buying Hot Hands, besides flannel shirts, pants, and heavy sweaters, that I can pull my jeans over and put shirts under.
Note: on the hot hands, they are only out during cold weather season.
Good title for the Obama Years Soap Opera.
As the World warms, our intrepid leader, fresh from a round of golf in the blistering 72 degree heat, sits at his desk in the oval office, sipping his coffee and contemplating his upcoming vacation....
Polar Bear Coats for All, and Santa and His Tropical Paradise!
Wow, this is a great religion!
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.
H. L. Mencken
And “Global Warming” is just another one of these hobgoblins.
Our dishwasher pump froze at -11 outside. Been in this 60+ year old house for 6 years and never had that happen before. Dealt with it and the reason, which was caused by the idiot former owner.
Wah wah wah wah wah! I want the govenment to help me!!! No one warned me that global warming would freeze my dishwasher. I want to sue someone. Send aid. I want reparations. Wash my dishes!!! The machine is WHITE and therefore a racist! The words on the controls are in English and my illegal immigrant helpers can’t read them!
There. Gotta get practice being a whiner.
Oh dont you believe it. They can always drum up another earth ending crisis to replace this one. There are ALWAYS immediate dangers that need vast quantities of attention and money RIGHT NOW.
Of course. They come in different sizes in Ky. Ky small is sold as Texas large in Texas.
Imagine you could get a great deal on Hot Hands in the spring. Bought a ventless natural gas heater and nat. gas fireplace logs in May and got a great deal. Bought a zero turn mower in Nov. and saved a ton all at Lowes. They will dicker in their off season.
Out side water spigot froze in Memphis, despite one of those caps and water turned off. Broke off when it thawed enough to work on it. Had light bulbs on the inside pipe. Thank God it was only the patio room.
By the time it hits mid Feb most of them are gone off the shelves. I stock up as soon as they put them out. We have the gas logs. When we bought this 12 year old house, we had it inspected, well the inspector missed a lot. No sofet vents in attic. Metal windows, that were not HE, those we just replaced, 1 more to go, 1 broke in shipping.
We got a Cub Cadet that had 1 hr on it cheap at Home Deopt and got our Military discount on top of it, and % off for opening a charge account, we never used. and 1% back using Discover.
We are going to pay the window payments with gift cards bought at Kroger’s. Double the gas points. The manager has to turn it into cash and you can then pay the payment. 1% back on Discover.
Now if he can find new fuel injectors for his antique Vet he will be happy.
Every year there’s a spell of a few weeks in Jan./Feb. when the temperatures can go negative. Likewise in June/July, temps can be above 100 for a couple of weeks - exactly the same as when I was a kid 40 years ago. The main difference I’ve noticed in my life time in New England is that when I was a kid, it seemed that there was snow on the ground continuously from December through April.
I am in John Deere country. Paint it green and trim in yellow and it just runs better and lasts longer. I have had John Deere tractors, front end loaders, and mowers and a Gator and they do work well with few breakdowns and high resell in this area.
Bought my Zero turn J.D. it was marked no warranty and had .8 tenths of an hour on it. It was repaired by the local J.D. tractor and mower dealer and I got the serial number and work order number and went to talk to them. They said the engine had been placed on top of a section of the wiring harness and they replaced it and they found nothing else wrong with it. They said I could register the warranty thru them with no problem.
3495. was the price at Lowes offered 1500. since it had no warranty and was considered used. Ended up paying 1900. After 3 days of haggling with 3 different managers, I finally beat them into submission. Did I mention I was in the car biz for over 20 years. It comes in handy sometimes.
Let me know if he can’t find the injectors, I still know some folks in the car biz. Have a great day.
After I posted, we had a major thaw here that took out about 10 inches of snow in no time. Came home one day to the water meter running full tilt because two ruptured underground (not deep enough!) 3/4” pipes to a rarely used room thawed. Wonder what how many gallons we sent into the water table. Forgot to shut the suckers off when it got cold. Oops.
That will give me something to do when the weather warms up a bit more!
We only got the cold and rain. This is an unheated covered patio with a hot tub. The outside water was turned off. And a cap on the faucet. Light bulb on the inside turn off line. Only leaked outside thank God. We have put way to much money into this house, and it is for sale. 2 old people out grew the care of a house with 4 bdrms, 3 baths, den, parlor, dinning room, kitchen, media room, back roof replaced last year, front this year, along with the den parque being refinished, kitchen cabinets all wood were refinished 2 yrs ago. New carpet in upstairs master bdrm and hall/stairs. 3,800 sq ft. We down sized to a starter home. All we are getting is wanna be renters who can’t pass a credit check.
