Hi Robert, I think this is an el nino year where the normal wind systems spin in the opposite direction. Comes around every few years.

Global warming is climate. What we are experiencing is weather. There is a difference. I sure am missing the crazy warm winter we had last year.

Hi Wayne, El Nino is a weather pattern that comes around every few years, El Nina is the normal pattern. I am not even sure if it effects the northern hemisphere very much at all.

When you get a couple of fifty year storms in a row, extra long fire seasons and the beach that used to be across the road lapping at your porch that's global warming.

The problem with global warming is that heat is energy, and raising it makes all weather events more extreme.

Cheers Kiwi

Whenever it gets this cold, we start seeing videos on the news of people throwing a glass of hot water in the air and it turns to vapor before hitting the ground. Or blowing soap bubbles and watching them freeze. Or it's too cold to snow. The local news seemed to have turned to bragging about who had the coldest wind chill temperature. Nothing to be proud of as far as I'm concerned, Haha.

It's currently -1 here and 55 in the shop. It's been snowing about 5" every day and we're only doing full snow blowing every 4-5 days. The tractor uses about 4 gallons of gas every full snow blow and it take us about 3 hours to do a complete clean up. The walks to the shop and firewood are the only daily shoveling we do.

Boulder, Colorado decided to sit this one out. 57 degrees F yesterday, and I went for a bike ride.

I should add that my wife reports a $5/day extra on the electric bill to keep my garage warm (where the '54 is). Sure wish I had a gas heater...

GOT IT GOING!!!!!!

1/2 can of either and a propain torch on the intake and fuel lines and she came to life like Satan himself breaking down the gates of hell !!! Screaming clanking smoking wow!!!!!!

Know what I did is not by the books but it was either get this thing running or let the cylinder head blow off the block and land in their neighbors yard!!!

Truck is a 95,000 lbs capacity Taylor Forklift, give it a funky paint job and it would fit in perfectly in a mad max movie !!!!

Weather patterns are affected by that dadgum global warming. I think it's called science.

Wasn't that one of the presidential promises, to fix global warming, or something like that? I guess it could be that wall down south keeping the warm out.

Yeppers, it's colder here than it has been the last couple of years also...makes me want to move to San Antonio Every time I think of global warming especially in winter, I think of some part of the Northern part of the planet with it's azz hung out exposed to space that's chilling it all and the only thing happening is the weather winds pushing all that cold around the planet! Brr.



It's all good. mostly

Hi Pastor Johnnie, Are you manipulating the excrement there?
Apparently there has been a flip flop on that too.
Paris Climate accord may be back on for you guys, so all good.

Apparently an El Nino give you more tornado's.

Personally I hate seeing good folk anywhere loose everything through fire flood, drought, mudslide or whatever.
