I am one of those people.
There is no need to cause panic.
How can we decide what is "normal" on this planet if we only have records for 100-150 years? Have you looked back 50 years or so? There have been great fluctuations in temperatures during all times of the year. We can't change the seasons or the weather. We must adapt and overcome. Which means being prepared beforehand. If you know winter is coming, you brace yourself accordingly.
It snowed in August once where I live in Ohio. That was decades ago.
Doesn't mean chemtrails caused an ice age.
Unsurprisingly, the extreme cold has brought out the climate change skeptics, who point to the freeze and the recent snowstorms and say, essentially, “nyah-nyah.” Now this is where I would usually point to the fact that the occasional cold snap—even one as extreme as much of the U.S. is experiencing now—doesn’t change the overall trajectory of a warming planet. Weather is what happens in the atmosphere day to day; climate is how the atmosphere behaves over long periods of time. Winters in the U.S. have been warming steadily over the past century, and even faster in recent decades, so it would take more than a few sub-zero days to cancel that out.
But not only does the cold spell not disprove climate change, it may well be that global warming could be making the occasional bout of extreme cold weather in the U.S. even more likely. Right now much of the U.S. is in the grip of a polar vortex, which is pretty much what it sounds like: a whirlwind of extremely cold, extremely dense air that forms near the poles. Usually the fast winds in the vortex—which can top 100 mph (161 k/h)—keep that cold air locked up in the Arctic. But when the winds weaken, the vortex can begin to wobble like a drunk on his fourth martini, and the Arctic air can escape and spill southward, bringing Arctic weather with it. In this case, nearly the entire polar vortex has tumbled southward, leading to record-breaking cold

Please, and the women crack me up. Some will cry about the freezing temperatures then blatantly "forget" to wear a hat for fear of messing up their precious hair. Good God people bundle up!
I talked not long ago to someone in toledo ohio. They said they are level 3, which means no one is allowed or should be out other than emergency vehicles or situations. It is cold but they are used to it. Just turn up the heat and make sure the snow blower is ready to roll soon. All will be fine... no worries here.
These things are Like friggin' clock workNever waste an opportunity.
