Just seems to be really odd how the weather has been in the past 6-7 months. mudslides and rain in CA, tsunamis in asia, killer bees attacking people, Mt St helens earthquakes, 4 hurricanes in FL. I've lived in FL my whole life and i have never seen a winter with 85 degree days for weeks at a time. Shit doesn't seem right. I'm just waiting for the 4 horsemen now

I remember walking on saltwater ice in the Chesapeake bay in the early '80s. It hasn't gotten like that since. Saltwater freezes at about 28 degrees, and needs to be very thick to support any weight. The same salt water ice thickness that would barely support a teenager could probably support a truck if it was fresh. Ergo, that was an extreme winter.

This type of thing is not weird. Breaking 100 year records is no big deal. If we had 1500 + years, of data, that might begin to mean something.

Agreed. On a geologic scale, the weather in my lifetime is less than insignificant.

Its January 12th and I have seen one or two FLAKES of snow. Me and my 4x4 are becoming anoyed.
Link Posted: 1/12/2005 10:48:15 AM EDT
We've had 4 days of straight rain. At 5300+ft in the Rocky Mountains. Gawd, I thought I moved to Seattle. One more day and I was either going to go on a shooting spree or start hanging out at Starbucks.

But the weather broke and we've got clear blue skies today. But it did rain/snow last night. And got below freezing for the first time in a week.

Usually the weather doesn't bother me, but all those dark, overcast, gloomy days was really wearing on me.

And I can't even get to the range because of all the mud. Please Lord, make it freeze over or dry out. I gotta' get some range time in. That would help.

No, but I'm sure those with losses are bothered by it.

It's like 70 degrees today - in january in Missouri!!


I'm not complaining - finally some of that global warming everyone's been prattling on about!

I'll bet people will be saying the same 10 years from now. And 50 and 100 years from now.

Weather, even climate patterns change. Always have, always will. I would not be surprised if the tsunami wreaks a little havoc with world weather patterns for several years. You can't move that much water around and not have it affect weather, even around the globe.

Doesn't really bother me. What's the point in getting bothered? You can't change the weather.

Yeah...we are getting rain and 35 degree weather today and tomorrow...then we will be lucky top get UP to -5 degrees for a high this weekend. I will be ice-fishing with my "other" website friends on our annual pilgrimage to a small lake.

Quasi-Jamboree ice fishing event.

Except that on arfcom, the relatives of the occupants of the building would be told that their loved ones deserved to die for entering a building without conducting a thorough structural evaluation first, and that their deaths were merely a cleansing of the gene pool.

Not really, as we only tend to remember the events of the past year or so. Weather is cyclical.

And of course, the media is hyping the weather for all it is worth. The networks love a good disaster.

Global warming may or may not be "real" - it's not entirely clear based on the data, although it APPEARS that there might be a slight warming.

However- what that MEANS is anybody's guess.

The planet has had much, much larger temperature changes in the recent past (most recently obviously in the other interglacial periods) and it's not clear at all how the very minor warming that MAY currently be going on woudl have any significant or problematic effects.

In addition (as an aside), there is ZERO EVIDENCE that whatever slight global warming MAY be happening, is actualyl a result of anything that humans are doing. Glocal warming (if it really exists) could very possibly be the result of larger climatic changes or cycles (related to sunspotes, glacial cycles, etc) that we simply do not understand yet.


Either way - global warming is at worst a very, very slight effect.

We had flooding, sleet, rain, snow, then more rain and now it's supposed to get up to 67. But, this is just typical Indiana weather.
