    Long range weather models have begun to hint at something very scary for the Northeast. The 0c line (freezing line) would extend all the way down to Miami Beach, the -10C line would be near the Carolinas and the -20c line would be near NYC. -20c is below 0 farenheit. There have been at least 4 or 5 model runs that have shown this around mid January right after a major winter storm on the 11th. Obviously something that cold could not only cause a lot of damage, but also possibly injuries and death. I'll keep everyone updated, but I'm letting you guys know... if you have plans to travel between the 10th and 20th of January, you might want to put this in the back of your mind.

    The freezing cold would also have a harsh impact on central Florida crops. We are approaching, climatologically, the coldest time of the year and with a record strong La Nina that we've had for a year now and a La Nina re-surging, this winter is FAR from over. Every signle signal shows for prolonged cold and snow. Long term, if there is any interaction with warm air during the Spring, we could be looking at a historic severe weather season. Last year's was intense.

    Interesting. Here in the Northwest, we have over half of our normal January rainfall already. Alaska is very cold over the whole of the state right now, and that could spill down here for another cold snap like the one we just had. Still, by historical standards, hardly a cold winter. A couple of winters just prior to WW1, the Columbia froze hard enough at Portland that they were driving wagons across it.

    No, it means that you have just demonstrated that you are a brainless ass.

    LOL! Gore made a lot of enemies for his successes in business, in making an accurate movie concerning global warming, and for generaly demonstrating that this nation chose the wrong leader in 2000. The fact that he has been an extremely successful ex-politician does seem to gall a lot of people. He moved on, and made a success of himself in a couple of fields. That he won acolades worldwide, a Nobel, a couple of Oskers, and other awards does seem to aggravate the far right wingnuts.

    I am not on the right. But he sure is aggravating. I would like to see Dee Snider beat the living shit out of him.

    Really? In what way? And what would he have to do with a kook like Snider, in any case?

    Senate Hearing mid 80's on obscenity. (in regards to Twisted Sister). Gore came off like the pompous fuck that he is.

    Whenever I hear him talk, I just want to go back in time, move to Florida, and vote for Nader just to fuck him over.

    Gore wants global warming to be man-made so he can make America stop polluting. You see, he won't be happy until EVERY American mfg job is in China.

    Gore is hypocrite. He talks about how horrible Global Warming is while getting paid tens of thousands of dollars in speaking fees and flying back and forth in his very non green private jet back to his very non green mansion in Tennessee. Everywhere he goes, he goes in limos. The guy consumes more fossil fuel in one year than an average american will in their lifetime.
