It's 35F here at my place in Alaska, with a light mist/rain.

I have never given much thought to the carbon theory but the US is no longer the top polluter in the world. We are the only one that has done anything seriously about it at all. The EPA is becoming irresponsible in their pursuit of a clean environment. They can't make rules so restrictive as to impact the economic growth of our country when China and India do nothing. The thing that concern me the most is the authorization for the EPA to carry firearms...WHY? Can they shoot me for my wood burning stove or having seasonal wet land on my property?

The "someone else" that I was referring to was the government. They are pushing this climate change scam to hard! The climate is always changing so they use it as tool to tax, fine and extract money from us for ever increasing restriction by the EPA.

We're getting the light rain as well here in PA with 35 degrees, but we got dumped with about 6 inches of snow first, so it's real icy conditions on the road right now and the side walks.

It's the sun. It has gone to sleep at the height of the solar maximum. Ice age coming.

Ice Age...what was the animal in the movie chasing? Was it an acorn? Sorry, I was just having a moment...lol.

The spring equinox will be here in a few weeks and hopefully it'll warm up a little.




Yes, the prehistoric squirrel, Scrat, was chasing an acorn in all the Ice Age movies. LOL Here he is with his Girlfriend Scratte in Ice Age 3 or 4: Continental Drift.




Myself, I've always been a summer baby. I grew up in the California Valley. Hot and humid, "I'm going to kill you" weather is nothing to me. I LOVE it! The faster it gets here the happier I'll be, that's for sure!

I think that I have a unique perspective on our weather. I am a retired airline pilot and I fought the weather for many years. What we are seeing is more media and government hipe than science. The problem is that the general public many times can't or won't see the motives involved.

The government pushes the global warming/climate change position to extract money from the public by massaging scientific data. The climate is cyclical and if it wasn't they could give us exact climate numbers/temperatures rather than averages. They are interested in "wealth distribution" not cleaning the environment. If this was not the case then the military wouldn't be burning/disposing extremely toxic material into the air at most military installation.

Then former government officials try to get on the monetary gravy train by establishing the "Chicago Carbon Exchange" scam. Corporations and rich individuals could buy carbon credits for excess carbon fuel usage. The rest of us would have to observe strict carbon usage guidelines. Luckily, former VP Al Gore was unsuccessful with his bid to extract our money for his use.

The news media loves the climate issue. They report on the global warming issue with little or no research to the validity of the information accuracy just take the government's climate change position. Their small amount research involves interviewing scientist who's livelihood depends on perpetuating the global warming issue to keep their jobs. The public is kept in the dark by poor/cheap news reporting practices.

The news is on a 15 minute news cycle which demands more news to fill their time requirement. This make them fill that time with 10 stories on the coming snow storm or hurricane. This brings about snowmagedgon reporting or the Brian Williams' New Orleans floating bodies stories. Nothing but weather hipe.

This makes me feel like the acorn in Iceage. Always being pursued just to be kicked into another situation...lol.

I definitely know that feeling. I had been on every journalism paper in school from 6th grade to college. That saying, "If it bleeds, it leads."? Yeah, it's most definitely true. They push on you to find the grittiest story, even in school, to splash on the front page. I wouldn't doubt weather Armageddon being one of them right now with all this "We're all going to die", "The world is going to end", "Ice Age is back!" crap that the news pushes in between "Cops shoot man and gets away with it", News at 11! Let's face it, the news loves Doom Porn almost, if not MORE, than we do! It's their bread and butter! And of course, we buy the papers, or listen at 11, so they take it as, PUBLISH MORE FRANK! And then they send out more reporters and repeat the cycle anew.

Right now its 30 degrees in Alaska and 10 degrees in Pennsylvania.


True that. This winter has been a joke


It's been a bit depressing for those of us who love winter recreation.

As a kid I always had this feeling, and would claim that we will witness a change of climate here in Alaska, strange it seems to be coming true.

I've read stories of tropical oasises deep in Alaskan rainforests, and that long ago Alaska was a tropical land....different part of the world and very long ago, but interesting still.

What was it, a couple of days ago, NJ was getting weather reports for a Hurricane Blizzard. All I could think of was now they're just making crap up from the Sci-Fi channel. LOL

As for days off, my daughter was supposed to have Monday off from school this past week, then they said, no you had too many snow days, Monday you go to school. Ok, fine. Temps were in the negatives, guess what, no school Monday. Aye yie yie! Make up our minds!

I'll admit I lived in the south for 2 years of my entire life but I felt like I was home immediately. I'm a military brat. All we did was move every 2-4 years my entire life! Born in NJ, then to ME, then Guam, then back to ME, then to MI, then to CA, then to NY, where because of spinal surgeries and recoveries of my sister and I were there for almost 19 years! Unheard of in the military! Then two years in OH for college, then back to NY, then married, then to GA, then his grandmother got cancer, so back to NY, it was like a bad black hole, no matter how far I left, NY kept sucking me back in! LOL Then to NC, then to PA finally and Lord knows from here. LOL

Edit, one thing I'm VERY good at is accents. I can tell where someone is from immediately, and I can pick up accents immediately. It was a habit of wanting to "blend in" and not wanting to stick out. I can do a nice Irish, or British accent from my grandfather. He never quite shook his. And an excellent southern.

On your way to Philly, stop by a small town near PA sometime. I live near Greensburg. I'd be happy to meet a friend for coffee. We have lots of cute coffee shops, including the expensive Star$bucks. LOL I just moved here about 2 months ago, so I'm dying to try some sushi shops nearby!
