Baby it's COLD outside
« on: January 08, 2017, 11:12:36 AM »
Got up this AM around 3:30 for my middle of the night trip to the Radio Room (Well that's where I put the radio) and checked into the Before breakfast Club on 3.983MHz.

28.4 when I sat down, 28.3 by the time I got my turn..  Checked out the window and sure enough the water hose was nicely lit up (String of rope lights,,, NOT the LED kind, k Duct Taped to the hose with "Fancy" Duct Tape, 100 watt lamp at the park end, all on a thermostatic outlet) so water flowed nicely.

Was down to 26 when I headed to Church.

This is S.E. Georgia, McIntosh County. IT's not supposed to freeze here.

(And at least my hose.. DID NOT freeze.. but then that's what happens when you prepare)  Lights in the wet bay never came on though so it did not get that cold... (2nd Thermostat)  I did run the Furnace for about 45 Minutes, in addition to 2.5 Space heaters (3750 watts total) Was about 65 inside with furnace running.

48 degrees at noon in central Florida. We've had absolutely glorious weather before this. It is sunny with blue skies, however, so that part is beautiful. But, I'm staying
inside my s&b where it's toasty.

Hang on a little. It's going to get better tomorrow and later on will be close to 80.

22 the last 2 nights in SW Louisiana, will get up into the 70's later this week.  Like I have seen "Where else can you get frost bite and a sunburn in the same week".  Not supposed to get that cold here either, we are not equipped for that.

If I remember correctly, you're at Sanlan in Lakeland. Born and raised in Lakeland, but have been in Winter Haven for about 4 years. I'll take 80, which as you know, is what we've been having prior to this cold snap. That's what I like about Florida's winter....it's usually just a "snap", and then we're back to higher temps.

23 here in Kennewick WA, snowing like a blizzard. This is a warm up, we have been running low of 2 high of 11. Brrrrrrr I haven't worked for 8 days.  Too slick and nasty on the side roads I am usually on in my truck delivering to construction sites. Got over 10' on the ground, for here, that is a lot.  Think global warming has the whole country in its nasty grip. Next they will tell us it has been the warmest year on record.  Come shovel that warming out of everyone's driveways ;)

It has been in the 30s today in central Florida. I actually wore sweatpants today for the first time in about a year. I get warm by watching the football games in Green Bay and Pittsburgh. ;D
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

That's right. Sanlan. I have two sister in laws living in Auburndale and another one in Haines City.

Snow and ice was on the ground in 49 out of 50 states this past weekend.

The exception was Florida, not Hawaii.  Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa had snow on their peaks.

Europe is also in the grips of record cold, due, I am sure, to the global warming crisis  ;)

I plowed 4" of fresh snow this morning, slid off the driveway and got the tractor stuck. I managed to extricate it, oh what fun.

Believe it or not... That is true..  The global warming actually is a bit of a misnomer. It's Global more violent weather. More Tornadoes, More Hurricanes (They ran out of names for named storms one recent year as I recall) and colder winters.

But this is a concept that many sadly a KEY many can not understand.

I might add if you care to add up the temp, hour by hour, every hour during the entire year, then divide by the number of hours in a year.. (SO you know outfits like NOAA do just this, as well as climate researchers around the world) YOu will see a trend.. It's getting hotter.

IN fact.. I've seen a chart where they did just that and by using historical data went back to about Bibical times.. Don't ask me how they determined the temperature when Christ was alive, but .. Well.. They claim they did.. IT was a very interesting chart. and I got to chat with the author of said chart.

Right now here in Homestead it is 69 degrees and warming nicely. We experienced some weather in the 50's the last couple of days but the crops look nice. I believe I seen 48 degrees outside air temp in my car yesterday morn. The global warming bunch no I am not going there.

Unfortunately, it is not true.  When the disasters related to global warming don't occur, the alarmists change the predictions.  Warming didn't occur, so it became climate change.  Too much rain, climate change.  Not enough rain climate change.  They can't lose right?  Everything is based on computer models which are woefully inaccurate and incorrect.  When you input inaccurate and falsified data, (see garbage in and garbage out) you get flawed results.  The storms, tornadoes and hurricanes are in fact fewer than historically recorded.  They are how ever greatly magnified by the liberal media who desperately want it to be true.  Isn't it funny how global warming embodies the 3 major tenets of liberal politics: bigger government, higher taxes and greater government intrusion and control over the lives of private citizens.  Government can change the climate?  The only thing that can atone you for your destruction of the planet is embracing and accepting the previous tenets.  You will not that the date of disaster is always moved out to where no one currently will be alive to refute it when it doesn't happen.  Actually e just passed one of the dates of no return last year.  Michael Manns original baseline data used tree rings from 2 trees cut down in remote regions of Canada to baseline the temperature for the entire northern hemisphere.  Anyone that spends any time reading and research this subject away from the drum beat of disaster will see the truth. Control through environmental alleged damage was originally theorized by Marx and Engels.  The entire global warming debacle is full of distortion, data manipulation, control of the narrate and out right lies and fabrications.  I have to laugh out loud when I read about the Antarctic ice shelf shrinking to perilous levels.  I just got and email from a good friend of mine who has worked there for 18 years in maintenance and repair.  They have to know the facts about the ice shelf for the ships coming in.  Guess what? it is huge! out 60 miles this summer. (it is summer there).  Posting this is actually rather worthless for those who choose to believe the religion of global warming will never give it up . . . just saying, read up on from independent sources not the just those whose entire careers depend on proving it so they can continue to receive their funding.  When was the last time a group of scientists receive a government grant to disprove global warming . . . .
