Breaking Bad ... Weather

I just love it when we break records here. It's always bad news:
Syracuse, N.Y. -- Syracuse just broke a 99-year record for the coldest Dec. 16.

The temperature at Hancock International Airport, the official weather station for Syracuse, hit 2 below zero over the last hour.

The record for Dec. 16 had been minus 1, set in 1917.

If this makes you feel any warmer, today's record low isn't even close to the coldest December day on record. That belongs to Dec. 20, 1942, when Syracuse hit 26 below zero.
I was shoveling snow at 0930 this morning. Yeah,it was cold.

The sad, sad story here.

It changed from 'global warming' to 'climate change' to accommodate the very thing you're experiencing. In fact it accommodates all changes from the mean as "proof positive - settled science".

Was there a local al gore sighting? There had to be a local al gore sighting. :-)

Sorry about the snow shoveling. I'm not looking forward to snow blowing 220 feet of driveway and 40 by 60 foot parking area behind the garage. Didn't have to do it once last year and Thankful !

Come ON Global Warming !

This morning I looked at the window and it seemed like I didn't shovel at all yesterday, another six inches or so fall last night and it is still coming down.
