I starred you because you are spot on man... not only did the sun go to sleep two years ago, the last time it did for an extended period, there was a mini ice-age in Europe and North American called the Maunder Minimum, which people seem to forget about. That lasted for 30(?) years and covered continents in thick ice, so it could be worse for the folks in the UK. Is it just coincidence that the US is seeing some of the coldest weather as well?

You have to laugh at this one! I wonder what the alleged "scientists" over at the IPCC are saying? Hmmmm, global warming? Climate change? Global cooling?

It's get a bit boring with you Americans coming on here and starting a whole "my snow is bigger than your snow" crap every other page. what is it with you guys and having some pathological need to make sure you're "number 1", even when it comes to snow... Jeebus H. Christ...
Yes, well done, you have more snow than us. Now go and play quietly somewhere while the adults talk...
Ironically, it is because we hardly get any snow that 16 inches is a big effing deal. We are just not prepared, nationally, for extended periods of it being bloody freezing.
