Shocking cold wave drops temps to 40 below zero (darn that global warming)
yahoo/AP ^

Posted on 01/14/2009 5:13:56 AM PST by nuconvert

MINNEAPOLIS – Temperatures crashed to Arctic levels Tuesday as a severe cold wave rolled across the upper Midwest on the heels of yet another snowstorm, closing schools and making most people think twice before going outside. Early Wednesday, the cold front swept into New York, sending temperatures falling from the 30s a day before to single digits or below zero. It hit 8 below in Massena, on the St. Lawrence River in northern New York, with the wind chill making it feel like minus 25 degrees.

Thinking that climate is weather or vice versa is to show that one is as dumb as those on the other side of the climate change debate.

Imagine how cold it would be if we didn't have global warming!

Are any of these record temperatures? I saw that yesterday beat the old all-time record for the date in Bismarck, ND by a full seven degrees F!

Looks like the Farmer’s Almanac hit a home run, and NOAA has egg on its face (again).

And it’s only January 14th!

We’ve got a lot more winter yet ahead of us!

I bet we see another blizzard here in southern Ohio like we did last year.

I’m definitely looking forward to the end of March or thereabouts. We can still gets cold and snow then but it doesn’t last too long.

When I told a lib that temperatures have actually been dropping over the last decade, she looked as if I’d told her I’d just run over her puppy.

I said, “don’t worry, the same people who were using global warming to push their socialist agenda will find another crisis to use”.

Its like speed and velocity - they may not be the same thing, but they are darn closely related.

When it drops like that, they now call it Global Climate Change.

We typically call it Winter. It has been happening every year since the globe started spinning around the Sun.

On the bright side, -40 degrees Fahrenheit equals -40 degrees Celsius. No conversion necessary.

We’re at a balmy 9 degrees here in Western PA.

Heard a radio report that the “eco-friendly” fuel they use in local school buses (which contains paraffin wax) tends to harden up in temperatures like this. So they had to send someone to the bus garages in the middle of the night to start up the vehicles to make sure they didn’t freeze up.

I had to laugh.

The libs will simply announce that we're entering a new ice age and will demand global socialist government as the only thing that can save us. When asked what happened to all that global warming hype, they'll deny that it ever occurred. We've always been at war with Eastasia, and we've always expected a new ice age.

When I walked outside en route to the hospital after I got beaten up by a bunch of hoodlums for defending a disabled white gentleman on the bus, I barely felt how cold it was outside. I was that pissed off. And I walked 6 blocks to the hospital without any gloves and an open jacket.

We have a balmy +31 degrees here in Raleigh this morning :)

Does snow still squeak when you walk on it at that temperature, or has global warming changed that too?

We found out that just talking about opening up more areas to exploration and the threat of increased drilling for oil caused oil prices to drop.

Now we find out that Al Gore has caused temperatures to drop just by talking about Global Warming and the threat of his carbon offset scam.

Check this one out. Crane Lake Minnesota. They bottomed out this morning at - 41.8 F. There previous record for this date was - 14.0 F in 1998. They beat their record for this date by 27.8 F degrees.

WNY begins three days locked in the deep freeze

Excerpt - We were buffeted by record-setting, hurricane-force winds. We were blasted by record-setting snowfall in a couple of blizzardlike snowstorms. Now comes the deep freeze. An Arctic front moved into Western New York overnight, bringing bone-chilling temperatures — and the outside chance of a record low — for the next few days.

Global warming? Not here. Temperatures won’t climb very far out of the single digits until the weekend, and Thursday night’s low will hit a numbing minus-5 degrees.

Thursday and Friday’s ‘highs’ will be in single digits in the Cincy region.

22 this morning, expected to drop as the day continues.

Brutal cold grips much of Canada

Record-breaking arctic deep freeze sweeps across Prairies, heads for East.

The coldest spot in Manitoba yesterday was Sprague, about 170 kilometres southeast of Winnipeg. The community experienced -43 C -- a record for Jan. 13 that hadn't been broken since 1979.

In northern Manitoba and Ontario, the Northwest Territories, and Nunavut, residents were being told to brace for wind chill of -50 to -55 this morning.

Around here, it crunches underfoot. Of course, the really cold air hasn't filtered through Ohio yet - it's supposed to hit -10 overnight Thursday.

That's only sorta cold, though. In December of 1983, we had a ten day stretch when the temperature never rose above 0 degrees. I froze up two different cars on successive days. :)

Cold snap may be one for record books

Northeast Pennsylvania faces its coldest snap in years through the end of the week as frigid air settling into the region plunges overnight temperatures to below zero. The National Weather Service warned the low Friday night could plummet to a numbing minus 10.

one thing I’ve wondering about this mass of cold air - is that it hovered over Alaska - obviously for quite some time.

How are those glaciers holding up this year anyway?

Any news on whether they have managed to keep disappearing during 78 below weather?

Yes, it's because of “Carbon emissions” you know.....

The Climate has become so “messed up” that it is super cold and super hot and super wet and super dry and record breaking weather every where.

Of course, they are hand picking their statistics and the periods they monitor to claim these record breaking events. Which is the Leftist rule of the end justifying the means.

The “Weather” Channel is using a 10 year model for all their “record breaking” data. And I'm sure that 1100 years ago, during the Medieval Warming period they had no clue what a thermometer was, or during the Little Ice Age; That they certainly would not point those facts out to the ignorant public.
