Some Facts because this thread seem to be lacking a lot.
1) It is not winter yet, so those who say " we have seen worse winters here in the UK, please rephrase "we have had colder autumn before here in
the UK" Please learn about solstices.
2) We have had worse conditions before in the so called "mini Ice age" and yes the Thames froze and If I remember correctly the even had a summer
with snow and a frozen river.
3) Right now the carribean has record low temps and that is a fact and even if the gulf current is healthy and running strong, I dont know where the
heat will come if the caribbean is cold to start with. (just google Can cun Record low temps and then check other temps around like fort laurerdale
4) Last time there was such extreme low tems, a lot of people died of starvation and was a disaster population-wise. This time with bigger cities
and more people, things could get really nasty right away, just remember the cold in Canada a few years ago, were an emergency was declared due to
lack of electricity and extreme cold.
5)Some of my friends (pilots) have reported that east bound flights have not encountered a lot of jet stream, in fact my flight on Nov 14 from NY to
Mexico was 45 minutes shorter!
6)Its too early to tell, but here in MExico we are freezing in fact yesterday we were at 0 C (32f), and its NOT WINTER YET. Be prepared because if
this gets really cold you wont have a chance to buy goodies if people panic.
I put 300Dlls in my Propane gas tank (560kgs) just in case and I have bought a watter purifier, and some extra food for a week, because lets face
it, if the SHTF, everyone will try to buy food/gas/generators and such.....
