Where is Al Gore when you need him?

Its freaking cold here in Palm Beach county tonight. I had to break down and turn the heat on an hour ago. Typically, there is only about one week a year where I might have to turn the heat on...and that's usually in late DEC or JAN.

[...]A blast of cold air is moving into the state this week, state emergency officials said.

Wind chills may drop into the 20s in parts of north Florida and high temperatures may only reach the 60s as far south as the Keys on Wednesday, state meteorologist Ben Nelson said.

Miami wasn't expected to even hit 70 on Wednesday, and low temperatures were expected to dive into the mid-40s.[...]

But it's global climate change now, that way it can still be all our fault.

It's supposed to be cold- it's November. Ask where Al Gore is when your skin is melting off your face next July. I'll tell you where he is. He's out there trying to save this country as well as the entire civilized world. God bless him!

No killer hurricanes this year. And the summer temps in FL were normal. I spent the whole summer working outdoors wiring up new toll booths on the FL turnpike.

Global temps have been flat for about 8 years now BTW.

They also conveniently forget the globally warming during the Middle Ages, or the Little Ice Age, seems we live on a dynamic planet orbitting a dynamic sun. Hmmmm? Sounds like the temp changes rather regularly on this here world! Oh, they also have been tracking the fact that the sun is brighter and hotter, and getting more so. PA, you been driving you suv on the sun again?
Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

Can sympathize with you! Remember living in West Palm some twenty years ago. Moved down there in September of ’94 from N.H. It was so warm that winter – to us – and when we would see the kids waiting for the buses in the morning to go to school with their coats and mittens on we’d have a good laugh. The next year, after you get the chance to acclimate, your kid is waiting for the bus with a coat on – probably getting laughed at by some newbie from the North.

We’re in Saudi Arabia, now. It’s been FREEZING here! I wish we had some heat!!! It’s been in the high sixties, low seventies this week. I know, I know, that doesn’t sound all that bad. My parents live in Buffalo – they have absolutely NO sympathy for us whatsoever. The point is, however, that when its 120 degrees every day for five months a year, you do acclimate and all of the sudden when it’s fifty or sixty degrees cooler – it’s COLD!!! I kid you not, I have three blankets on the bed at this point… And I’ve wearing jeans, a tee-shirt and a sweatshirt INSIDE! The only positive to this is that I do have an opportunity to wear the really nice sweaters and leather coats I brought with me when we moved here that everyone said I’d never need. They were wrong. I do need them!

Stay warm, PA!
