    Minnesota and the Dakotas are experiencing some of the coolest days of summer this year prompting on Accuweather forecaster to declare it, "the year without summer."

    Temperatures have been more than 7 degrees below normal. The lilacs have yet to bloom, an event that normally occurs by the first week of June.

    Al Gore has no comment...


    Many forecasters have one word for this summer: COOL

    And the Pacific Northwest. We had 100+ temps for a few days about a month ago,and it's been incredibly cool ever since. I actually had the heat on for a few minutes at a time yesterday and today..that's unheard of.

    If this is it then I hate to see what comes when/if it really does transpire. I do believe the climate changes. I don't believe that man has a cause that can direct that change in the climate. It is really obvious when you start looking at the fossils throughout the different regions on earth to see the earth changes constantly. Even in places in the Artic where excavation has taken place there is grass under the ice. So global warming has already been and will probably be again.

    I know what you mean! It is cold here and I hope it stays that way until July11th when I go to the Gorge which is always hottest place in washington in the summer. I went there in May and it was like being on the sun, I don't want to think about how it will be in July.
    It has rained like crazy here also, I don't think I have ever seen it rain here like it did the other night.
