We had a small spat of flurries here in Ohio today (Cleveland area). And last year we had a blizzard in mid-October. Could the methane seepage combined with a El-Nina event cause this?
Winter seems to be arriving earlier every year here...which kind of flys in the face of the Global Warming crowd.

In a nutshell, there are people like Al Gore who have millions invested in green industry, not to mention those who take govt money, produce zero products and then declare bankruptcy coming out of the experience filthy rich.
These people will make billions if people become hysterical about it.
That's as best as I can describe it for now, but I hope that makes a little bit of sense. So, even though skeptics of climate change will use this unusually cold weather to cry foul, it's just the opposite. These patterns have everything to do with a warming climate. And it starts all the way over there in Indonesia with not only all their monsoon rains and extreme weather events, but they also have 22 active volcanoes in that one island nation.
Even though tornadoes have had a low count this year, the severe thunderstorms have been epic. They have been continuous and relentless all summer long. I’m way up here in northern Wisconsin, where we don’t get to many big storms, but this year has been incredible and the rainfall amounts…holy cow. The ground was already saturated after the winter thaw because we received a lot of rain in the spring on top of 120 inches of snow. People’s basements were flooding. The rain took some time off during July, for our town anyways, and then returned with a vengeance through the month of August, until the storm of September 4 that rampaged through my hometown of Hayward, Wis.
