As I look out at the 32 inches of snow in my yard plus five more coming on Tuesday, I sure could use a little global warming!

You must be on the Atlantic seaboard, Marcion... I've been keeping up with the weather news and don't envy all the snowstorms you're going through. Here's a link to the Weather Channel and plenty of videos about what's being referred to as an Epic storm.

Global warming is affecting the weather in that it is responsible for heavier precipitation - which means not just heavy rainstorms but heavy snowfalls as well.  In other words, humans are warming the planet, and this means an increase of water vapour in the atmosphere.

So many superlatives being applied to this recent storm... "The Blizzard of 2010", according to weather.com, Epic Storm and Historic storm according to yahoo news and our President is referring to this as Snowmageddon. I kinda like that one.


I've lived in cold snowy weather and don't envy those that are still digging out of this one. Hope everyone stays warm and dry and hopefully INDOORS!

Let's see: Our temperature today was 19 degrees Celsius, which would be about 66 degrees for all you Fahrenheit people.  It was sunny, with soft breezes, which made it one those typically lovely New Zealand summer days.  Bumble bees were busily working at the geraniums, agapanthus, bluebells, and various other flowers.  The roses are pretty much done by now, though.  Their best month is December.


Snow?  What's that?

Global warming is WHY the East is under a yard of snow. It is causing an El Nino and a series of wet storms - in January alone - dumped 96 inches of snow in Yosemite.

 Yeah and that same global warming is making it unseasonably warm and dry here in sunny California. As we stare in to another year of drought and I wonder if there will be enough water to go around? I am astonished that this year we didn't have another off the charts fire season! Blow's me away that i am getting sunburned in Dec. and Jan. 


 Funny how when it starts getting cold back east everybody pretends that it has nothing to do with a rapidly changing climate. Course all of the projected models tell us that extreme weather patterns are to be expected. 


But that couldn't possibly mean heavy snow fall and low temps. cuz that don't seem very warm like do it?

Uh.... which California are you living in? The one over here on the West Coast has a snow pack at over 118% and still growing. Rainfall totals are well past drought status.
