Shiver me timbers, it's global warming!

From Accuweather:
Nearly the entire eastern half of the United States is enduring bitterly cold temperatures not experienced since 1985. Even Florida, which has been hovering around freezing levels overnight recently, is also feeling the almost-nationwide chill.


"It'll be like the great winters of the '60s and '70s," said AccuWeather.com Chief Meteorologist and Expert Long Range Forecaster Joe Bastardi.


The last time a large swath of severely low temperatures struck the nation was in January 1985. That historic arctic outbreak had below-zero temperatures Fahrenheit stretching from Chicago eastward to New York City, and all the way south to Macon, Ga.
And record snow in Burlington, Vermont.  Check out WPTZ Channel 5.

Des Moines, Iowa is 30 degrees below normal.

A nuclear power plant in South New Jersey had to shut down one generator and reduce power to another due to floating ice on the Delaware River.  Another first.

Coldest temperatures in Beijing in 40 years.

Seoul, South Korea buried in heaviest snowfall in 70 years.

As I write this, it is 23 degrees in Milton, Georgia.  Single digits expected by morning.  If a blast of carbon dioxide will warm things up a bit, I'd like to order some up right now.

  2. And in DALLAS,TX we had a white Christmas, the first one since 1926, and later this week we are due to get an artic blast with low temperatures we haven't seen in over 10 years. With the wind chill, it will be below zero!
