    Yes you read it correctly. In this year of "record" heat (thanks to the miracles of modern data falsification) there is one thing you can't fib about...because the people really are freezing their collective butts off! So here you have it, the coldest recorded temps in over a century in many cases.

    Tis freezing.

    So I now expect the insufferable Air Quality Board to declare a Spare The Air Day so they can fine us for having fires this weekend.

    Well, that is very nice. We had two record warm days for early November, and two days just before Thanksgiving that were the coldest for this time of year for the last 25 years. Neither of which proves a thing.

    However, the continues decline in the masses of the glaciers thoughout the Cascade Range is much more indictutive of the direction in which the climate is moving.

    Actually, it does prove something.

    This is a La Nina year. El Nino and La Nina have significant impacts on our climate and weather ---- far more than some humans using fossil fuel.

    Yes, there are.

    I spent much of yesterday making 3.5 gallons of turkey soup - the kitchen was quite toasty!
