    Last time they met in Las Vegas, the Earth dumped a rare snow storm on them. Now they're in Copenhagen to save the planet from Man Made Global Warming and Earth is mocking the Warmers by dumping more snow on them. Trying to remind them what Earth's weather was like for most of the past 2,000,000 years: really fucking cold, 15 to 18 degrees colder than today

    Blizzard Dumps Snow on Copenhagen as Leaders Battle Warming

    By Christian Wienberg

    Dec. 17 (Bloomberg) -- World leaders flying into Copenhagen today to discuss a solution to global warming will first face freezing weather as a blizzard dumped 10 centimeters (4 inches) of snow on the Danish capital overnight.

    “Temperatures will stay low at least the next three days,” Henning Gisseloe, an official at Denmark’s Meteorological Institute, said today by telephone, forecasting more snow in coming days. “There’s a good chance of a white Christmas.”

    Snow is rare in Portland, Oregon, also. But we get it every once in a while. In Copenhagen, they get snow more often than we do.

    Spotted by Normann Copenhagen

    We Danes love to talk about the weather, and today we will do so as well.

    Christmas is getting closer and if you are in Copenhagen right now it is hard not to get in the holiday spirit as the snow is falling outside covering the streets of the city. Snow always brings back childhood memories from when you were running around dressed like the Michelin-guy/girl playing in the snow and didn’t care about being wet or cold.

    Talking about playing, dont forget today is the last day of our “Be creative and win” competition, so if you haven’t already submitted your design/drawing, please do – and you might win a Normann Copenhagen product.

    To celebrate the winter wonderland outside we stocked the first page of our homepage with white products. Continue reading ‘Winter Wonderland’

    Sure does sound like the Danes think that snow in December is more common than you indicate.

    I'd say Snow for Christmas is rather rare if this is the first white Christmas in 14 years, and only the 8th in a hundred years.....Yes sir, pretty rare.

    And this is Global warming...LOL

    are we being funny or seriously debating daily weather vs climate? I'm no good at telling when folks are being funny w/o a ton of :)'s being used or lol's.

    To bring this to a local level I suppose. Tuesday it was in the 20's in St. Louis. IF man made global warming raised the temperature two degrees from "normal" would I have noticed?

    Heck, on a daily level I notice the changes brought forth by what I think is the undisputed urban heat island effect. That is, concrete and the activity of city life increases temperature a couple degrees over the surrounding countryside.

    Then again, maybe that is disputed, the outside air temp reading in my car is rigged to give bad info by greenpeace, and I've had the wool pulled over my eyes! lol
