Everytime someone says "So much for global warming" I think of this.

Yes, it is an El Nino year. The temperature extremes vary from country to country, and even state to state. I believe the southern parts of the US are supposed to be a lot wetter than normal while the northern parts are supposed to exprerience warmer than average winters as the polar jet stream is forced to a more northerly trajection.

Warmer than average temperatures in the north of the U.S.? Really? is that why I am stuck at home because it has been -1F -18F for the past week?.... is that why we had a very early winter, and temperatures in summer were not as hot? and at night in summers we had temps in the 60s..... Phew, if that is warmer than average, i don't want to know a cold year...
