It's so hot, it's cold

WARNING! Images may cause Al Gore to look like an idiot.

13 Feb, 2010 -- Wilmington, NC (which is actually more to the south than Spartanburg, SC).

Bet your dog is having a ball playing in that global-warming snow

Looks like a normal Iowa Winter to me. I'm supposed to feel sorry for you how???????

I never asked you to feel sorry for me. I'm just pointing out what a bunch of clowns Al Gore and the rest of the "Global Warming" Gestapo are.

Al, where do you live in Iowa? Here in the Des Moines area, we've had at least 18 inches of snow/ice on the ground since Christmas. If we get too much more, the dogs will be able to walk over the fence!

Looks just like MN, IA and WI in winter. ManBearPig strikes again!

Just got off the phone with friend in NC...3" snow today. Here in north central PA just a few inches of dry stuff over the past week total, but Pittsburgh and Allentown are under several feet. I am so jealous!

The issue of global warming has nothing to do with rather or not it snows in the NE U.S. Snowing is part of the climate.

Al Gore is an idiot, or worse an opportunist. Yes, there is global warming (maybe). It's a planetary process that, although it may be influenced by man-made activities, is also a natural phenomenon. The controversy is how much "influence" does man have on nature? Frankly, I don't know.

Those are photo shopped; snow only happens on top of mountains. I know this for a fact because I can see it on the mountains that surround socal.

It's teeshirt weather here. I've got all my doors and windows open, and am running around outside this morning barefoot with teeshirt and bluejeans ... danged if that ain't fifties, huh? The only thing that would make me look up to date is that my teeshirt is inside out, the new style in socal.

This is why I do not believe in global cooling, because so many of us have always been cool.

I don't believe in global warming either, other than the hot air and methane gas being emitted by the algorites ... if only they'd stop eating trees; I even believe those carbon footprint emissions power the jet they fly around in.

OK, maybe my crazy posting has to do with all the lemon Girl Scout cookies I ate this morning.

Solution to snow: Invite algore to give a speech. Then hold a lit match up to his mouth and the resulting mega-explosion will melt all the snow east of the Mississippi.

Climate Change is what we used to call the seasons!

(And you don't even have snow shovels!)

@ JLS, we have Tshirt and jeans weather here in Iowa too. It's 30 degrees and we're sweltering!

I'd love to be able to post a picture of the built up snow. At least we have the small consolation that when the excrement hits the oscillator, we're tough enough to handle it!! Iowa: Colder than a witch's ____ in the Klondike in the winter and hotter than a snake's a$$ in a wagon rut in the summer.

I remember my Dad and his sister reminiscing about a particular winter in Laramie ... must've been back in the 1920s ... after describing the type of feeling of that cold for a while, with a whole lot of articulation, she then capped it by "It was 37 below", and something about she would open the door and the wind would cut right through the heavy cold gear she was wearing. I've been in ten below outside for an hour, and I once walked into a 20mph wind with snow blowing in my face for a mile. I thought that was really macho until I walked by a group of college kids playing soccer in the snow wearing typical soccer shorts and jerseys and no head gear.

But by far the finest cold weather experience I had was not about me, but about the unexpected snowfall on January 22, 1987 in Washington DC. There had been no snow that year until 9am that morning. I walked over to where the March for Life was staging, and there were thousands of teenyboppers who had come in by bus from all over the USA. Hundreds at least were not wearing cold weather clothing. They wore pumps, tennis shoes with no socks, shorts, teeshirts with thin longsleeve shirts, no caps or hats ... Autumn wear. These kids never complained but expressed lots of goodness, cheer and joy, and walked the whole March for several hours. I ran into locals who were suited up in ski bibs and heavy arctic clothing. Talk about fasting for unborn babies!!!

These kids fasted from body heat for two or three hours including standing around listening to the speeches. That is why we're going to win.

There were only 25,000 that year, but their kids showed up this year and there were 2.5 million, tens times as many.

Have you checked out Southern Appeal? He posted a video by Minnesotans for Global Warming that out did The Who! Awesome!

Cavey: I agree with you on Algore 100%. Just trying to give you a hard time about having to endure a wee bit of what we put up with all the time.

Heather: I'm in DBQ. Right now we have about 6-8 inches on the ground. We would have a lot more if it wasn't for all the rain earlier this Winter that melted it away.

As Heather points out, when it gets to 30 degrees here, it is downright balmy. Here at the College I work at the kids break out the shorts. Sandals wait until about 40.

Al and Heather, I know damx well that you are spinning yarns, myths, lore, legend.

Wait, no, I see it. Add 40 and 30 and get 70 -- ok that's more realistic, something that is believeable.

JLS, No we aren't. This is Iowa we are talking about. In Winter it can get down to -10 or -15 & occasionally 100+ in the Summer. So we are a hardy lot here in Iowa. 30 is balmy for us.
