Mark down January 4 as one strange day for weather in the United States. The extremes were topsy-turvy.
While Floridians were experiencing record low temperatures, Montanans were seeing record highs that are normal for April or October.
Forecast highs in the upper 50s in Montana were expected to break records in Lewistown, Great Falls, Harve and a handful of other places, according to the National Weather Service.
Similar highs were forecast Wednesday for large portions of Florida.

Read your history.
The Earth warmed in the 12th century AD. ie the 12th Century Renaissance
It was particularly cold during the 17th and 18th centuries, ie, "the Little Ice Age"
and many many more examples.
Whether you believe in anthropomorphic climate change or not, the Earth has changed climate, had severe temperature shifts, and severe weather for all of human history and much more severe instances before human history.
If we are causing the changes, we are just another natural occurence as far as the Earth is concerned (The Earth isn't concerned, nor is it "fragile).

Crazy weather. Went to the store and sudenly, though not a cloud in the sky, a mass of cats fell from the sky. You should have seen it. Amidst meows and hisses they bounced off roofs and cars all over. Freeky.
