Last five days were lows of minus 5 and highs in the single digits. Today was about 25 degrees.
Must be global warming, eh?
Theory: waters (most importantly) heat up...water cycle goes into warp speed...creating higher ocean water temps (75% of the earth's surface) then with pollution,smog, fog, increased sun exposure due to ozone holes,= hotter and hotter water temps....hotter air temps...steamier ocean waters rising with all the dirt....pollution...continuously rising...dirty air...atmosphere upset...sun's rays slowly incapable of penetrating upper atmosphere ...eventually blocking OUT sun's rays totally=no warmth penetrating through=no light for photosynthesis in plants=decreased food supply=dirty contaminated air without purification in the nitrogen cycle=trees unable to clean the aCO2....very end would be FREEZING/STARVING EARTH!
just the way I help my offspring understand the THEORY to pass their tests: Trick Question from teachers-
Ex:According to the Global Warming Theory life on planet earth as we know it will end due to intolerably increased/decreased temperatures.
DISCLAIMER:I am not purporting to understand all the chemistry...I am not necessarily a believer! It is a scientific THEORY.....I just try to help my kids..get understanding enough to maybe get one more point on their tests!!!!
...But if you want a place to stay...where the temp will be in the low 20's and teens by Tuesday (but above zero!)
Come on down to FLA! Of course, if we want real thawing out HEAT...AUSTRALIA is the happening place with the 80'sF!!!!
Where is Roystan and Anne...are they at the beach "down under"?????
There was a big weather pattern shift this year. Normally should have had about 15-20 inches of rain since mid-October... but this year only about 2-3 inches so far.
I am growing broccoli, cabbage, onions and beets on my deck and they are loving the weather. Just had some fresh broccoli this evening.
I'm sure the east-coasters are wishing for some quick global warming. Maybe Al Gore can do something about that.
Things not to do in extremely cold weather:
> Do not overexert yourself shoveling snow.
> I you must travel, pack food, water, sleeping bag and a heat source in the vehicle (small camp stove w/ fuel would be good).
> DO NOT LICK ANY FLAG POLES !! If you do, warm water will extricate your tongue from the pole.
