Lets not forget that all this climate change is in you imagination, the earth is fine the weather is outstanding, we can continue to process fossil fuel for eternity. All the media hype regarding global warming is exactly that, its hype.

oops seems i posted that in the wrong site.

It does not seem unusual according to this:

I'll never forget the article I read about polar ice caps melting and oceanic currents changing, it stated an impact of this would be a frozen britain

in about the year 2100

could it be happening this quickly ?

or is this just a jetstream thing ?

The Global Warming theory is not applicable in the UK now huh? We are having an above average temperature in North Central Florida this Winter and loving it.

Im from Lincolnshire UK and it dropped to -16 last night, Coldest i have ever known it to be here, Tucked up with the hubby and kids in our PJ's
Good excuse not to do anything!
Last year if I remember rightly or the year before, it snowed around April time here, That caused the same reaction from people, Wandering what was going on.

Death toll tops 400 in Europe's big freeze

The overall death toll from the cold snap that began 11 days ago topped 400 while forecasters warned there would be no early let-up to the freezing weather.

Ice age Europe: How the big freeze, with temperatures as low as MINUS 40, has turned Britain and the continent BLUE

Europe continues to be blanketed in snow as the cold snap which has so far killed hundreds across the continent shows no signs of stopping. Hundreds of villages across Eastern Europe were today completely cut off as temperatures plummeted in some places to -40C.

all this panic about the cold weather just because the southern parts of england normally never see a real winter.
we in the north of england or should i say northen people over the age of 40 + know that this weather is normal.
we have been softened up a little by the mild winters of the recent past .
i am a retired plasterer and i remember one site that i worked on in blackburn lancs , the labourers had to light fires to thaw out the ground before they could dig out for the drains .
the digging machines could not make any head way , the buckets was bouncing of the frozen ground .
all that was in 1966 .

Not really, i think the point is its all a bit chaotic, and out of sync, flowers blooming in winter thinking its spring, obviously just before this recent cold snap, animals not hibernating, im sure the list goes on.

I genuinely do think the seasons are out of synch by a month or so. We're experiencing December weather in February and that was after a late summer (remember it being warm in November?) - and now when we should be experiencing early spring (next month) we're getting winter weather.

The UK and Europe have stolen Canada's winter

On the plus side, when temperatures drop below -20, it doesn't usually snow, and the slipperyness seems to go away. That said, I'm in the center of Canada, so our -20 or below, is a very dry cold, so maybe the moisture in the air is completely different over there
It could stay slippery?

I just wish it would either stay really cold, or stay warm. Our temperatures have been fluctuating by 20 degrees every week. It warms up to zero, and everything starts to melt, just enough to get into the cracks, and then we get a deep freeze, and everything in those cracks expands, and heaves, and I'll see what damage has been done in the spring.

Yesterday was -35 when I woke up, and I even put tape around my front and back doors, the cold pushes in if there's any cracks. I clearly need to upgrade my insulation....

Today, was -25 when I woke, and it's expected to be up to zero again in a couple of days, and then drop to cold again....

If you find areas around your windows or doors where cold is coming in, stuff with insulation of any sort, or tape overnight - it helps in a pinch. Blankets over the windows makes a big difference too.

Don't let your pipes freeze, wrap them with stuff if they're in a place that'll freeze.

You don't say? We had -39.8c a few days ago.

A happy global warming, eh?

It's -46 °c in Ust-Omchug, Russia.

It is an unusually dry cold over here at the moment.Normally as soon as the clocks go back and the first time I have to drive home from work in the dark (work finishes at 5.30 PM) I have to clear heavy condensation off my car windows every day,and by December I'm ice scraping every single day after work.I haven't had to scrape ice or clear condensation since about March last year in the evenings which I find a bit odd even though it's around 0 deg at that time.
Traditionally the end of January and beginning of February for about 4 weeks is the coldest time of the year down here,and I'm not really seeing anything that I'd call out of the ordinary for the time of year except that the sea temperature is about 1 deg colder than normal for February......

We haven't had that this year, -40 was it's coldest, with no wind. Now it's warming again.

Years like that (below -30), cost a lot more in electric and gas, the vehicles all have to be plugged in, or running. And a spare battery in the house. Half an hour just to warm it up enough to drive, even after being plugged in all night.

I watched a tv show the other night, that shows how some countries embrace the cold winter. They talked about the Walrus clubs in Russia (swimming in large ice holes), and showed the Scandinavian countries and how well they deal with the snow. They use it, they make it fun. Skiing to school and work even. I think it was Oslo that has geothermal and electric sidewalks downtown, which just melt the snow away. Outdoor heated eating places, all winter in some places.
There is no bad weather, only improper clothing, or vehicles/tires.

Russians really make the most of their climate. To complain, was said to be almost treasonous.

Canadians came across as too much complaining about the snow, but getting better. Snowmobiles help
and 4 wheel drives. We're starting to embrace it again.
I like how clean everything looks when it stays properly cold.

Montreal got the distinction of being the city in the world that has the most efficient ways of removing the most snow.

It was last year, if not worse.

please google some information which back u pyour statement..since I found otherwise..

The Republic of Ireland's lowest ever December temperature on record was recorded on this date.[citation needed] The mercury plummeted to -17.5 °C at Straide, County Mayo.
- in December 2010 ..

January again was colder than average across the UK, though much milder than December, with a mean temperature across the UK of 3.1°C.
- This is how January 2011 was..

February 2011 February was a very mild month (the 9th mildest in the last 100 years [46]) with very little frost and much of the country having its first snow-free February since 1998. The only significant wintry weather came on the 18-21st when some overnight dustings of snow fell as far south as the Midlands.
- February..

i feel this is gonna be the new normal for you.look up about where the magnetic north pole is moving towards
siberia.strange weather everywhere i live in new england usa east coast,and we have had much warmer weather than usual this winter.i think its cause of the magnetic north pole is moving northwest and it pulls the storms towards it,thus pulling warmer air up to me from down south.just what im hearing from other ats'rs
