My home city in China is normally Cold, it's known for the Winter Light Festival.

Yes, those sculptures are made from blocks of ice.
But, here is the link for your story.

In some areas - northeastern China, eastern Inner Mongolia, and north part of far-western Xinjiang province - the low has hit -40 degrees C (-40 degrees F), the administration said. The state-run, English-language China Daily reported Friday that about 1,000 ships were stuck in ice in Laizhou Bay in eastern China's Bohai Sea.

I hope this helped you.

Another picture of a tourist resort for skiing in my home city.

An average winter day, their not wearing face mask to warm the air as you breath, so it's not to cold, maybe -5 degrees.

Well, with some weather cycles on the order of 10's of thousands of years, your 37 years isn't even worth considering. There are decadal oscillations, of which you have experienced a few. But extremes occur in much larger cycles.

lol, nature going through menopause


People on the soapbox tend to conveniently forget that the planet (and subsequently, universe) have been around a whole lot longer than a couple of currently living generations of a bipedal species. Existence is in a constant state of change, nothing is static. Otherwise environmental records wouldn't vary at all.
We're just a hominid infestation. We're not above the occasional epic environmental twitch to get rid of us.

When the temperatures dip lower than Russia, then I will comment further in this thread.

I'm not speaking for the other countries, but in my 36yrs on this planet Australia is mostly hot this time of the yr. and bush fires although can be devastating are quiet common.

Some of our natural flora infact relies on fire. I will say, it's quiet worrying to see our coldest state with large fires. It's natures way. Not sure if the weather is any stranger then normal though.

'cyclical events' , nary worth mention, proportionate to to the 'annals of time - recorded', that is (?)

well i know 2012 is britains 2nd wettest since records began and i,ve saw other countries weather of last year being extreme so it would be interesting to know where they ranked in their record years.

Yes, it's cold in most of China, my city of Harbin, China is famed as the Ice City, Harbin has long cold winters and short cool summers. The snow season can last as long as half a year.
January is the coldest with the lowest temperature dropping to -38 F, while it is just 68 F on average in summer.

And here is the Harbin Zoo with our Siberian Tigers. It pains my Hear to think they are so cold this year.

Warm thoughts and well wishes for your parents. Please remind them the importance of drinking extra water to remain hydrated. Also hanging blankets to keep the drafts down and wear many layers. I hope to hear good news of a warming trend soon.

Thank You So Very Much, antar.
I just finished talking to both and their doing very well, Thank you again.
Dad was soaking his feet in hot water as mother was treating his arthritic shoulder with Acupuncture.
It is a new day there, the sun is shining and Mother wants to take a dip in the river when they get a open area for the ice swimmer made.

Considering we are still IN an Ice Age .. the next one can't be near.

we are still in the ice age that began 2.6 million years ago at the start of the Pleistocene epoch, because the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets still exist.

www.bbc.co.uk...

Right now we are in an interglacial period, or a "warm" period of an ice age.

The main big problem with our weather history is that our history is sooo young. I never heard about breaking 3000 year old records. It is always 30 years maybe a 100 years but no one has some decent record from medieval times so I honestly don't know. what about droughts of the inca's, flooding of Europe (15th century) or Chinese and Egyptian dynasties

We can argue we broke the record of most consistent weather in the last century... my gosh that has never happened before... We just don't have enough data yet

The point he is trying to make is that this isn't unusual for this time of the year in China. The same with the fires in Australia, anyone would think that Australia has never had a bushfire or extreme heat in Summer before. Only a few years back, we would go weeks on end with temps about 35 degrees. Whats happening now is nothing.
