Had awful snow up here in Leeds.  About 30cm fell from Friday lunch time to Saturday lunch time.  Finally stopped snowing about 2pm on Saturday but now the snow on the pavements is just compacted in to solid ice, so dangerous for people getting out and about.  Main roads are slushy but passable, side roads as so icy and people are getting stuck in the ice all over.

That's global warming for you.

Not only that, but a groundhog in America is being sued by a punter because the groundhog predicted an early spring.  Yet the groundhog could not be more wrong as America, like Britain, still freezes in an unusually long winter.

Of course, the more sensible amongst us know that the world is getting COOLER, and has been since 1998.

It was dry as a bone for most of January and the whole of February and then the first day of rain was enough to cause widespread flooding across the country.
Temperature has been up and down from hot for the season to painfully cold.

Weather sure is weird out here in the wild west.

years back people would use their log burners, now the old have the electric or gas and today many just can not afford the costs.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Aye Spud! My mum was telling me about the 1947 winter only the other day. She told me 'it was so cold that she sat in class with her coat, hat and gloves on'.

Its the end of  march its Autumn (fall) here in Australia yet its still in the 30s (80s-90s) in most places. Also its the driest march on record in many places and warmest I think. I think it will be a late long winter for us down here. It will be cold but little rain.

Mind tricks don't work on me, only money.

Here in Vietnam we are having a daily thunderstorm during the middle of the dry season.  Still I hear of drought up in the coffee areas in the mountains.  I don't know if there is anything to be made of it beyond chaotic variation.
