We had the wind down here, too (Houston). Sunday night we'd had some cold rain, but it was pretty quiet. Then outta nowhere ~ the wind sounded like it was gonna rip the roof off. Woke up the dogs, and trust me, that takes a lot. Runnin' around Monday and yesterday, my pickup kept dancin' back and forth ~ weird. We're used to this kind of windy weather up in the Panhandle but not down here.<br><br><br><br><br>[color:blue]And I'm the one that jaded you . . .</font color=blue>

Yeah, I love a really really big snowfall every few years. But not more often than that. <br><br>That way I can get off a few days because the roads are impassible in PA, meanwhile 8 hours after the snowstorm in MD they've got the roads plowed out clear including the shoulders and bone dry so I can go out and have fun. ;)<br><br><br><br>

What if next time it wont be warm enough?<br><br>Global warming does not mean that it is warming up everywhere. Global warming is causing some parts to warm up and other parts to cool down. Because of these changes, the currents are changing too, and therefore bringing unexpected weather.<br><br>The main problem is that it a constant change that's increasing in speed and amplified. Tomorrow you might actually get the 80 feet of snow. :)<br><br>On our side here in Alberta, this year has been pretty good to us. The summer didn't last long, but up to now, winter has been warmer than usual with way more chinooks than we would normally have. We are not expecting any earth quakes or tornadoes any time in the near centuries since we are pretty well hidden from those. So you could say that global warming is affecting us positively up to now (if we don't count the melting of the ice which provides us our water) but if it's better here, that means it's worse somewhere else. :(<br><br>_________________________________________<br>Just a different kinda geek...

Even though it has been warm here also (50 or so), we just received our $400 heat bill (with a two year old furnace!).<br><br>_______<br>For unique Raku pottery, visit Mole Hill Studios at: http://www.molehillstudios.com

Our last heatin' bill was $140. Nothin', compared to yours, but that's double what it was this time last year when we actually had a winter.<br><br>I think we're gettin' Enron-ed with these natural gas prices. Somebody's gettin' rich and it sure ain't us.<br><br><br><br><br>[color:blue]And I'm the one that jaded you . . .</font color=blue>

Yeah, Carp...your little digs about the weather are getting pretty moldy. Besides, as nice as Hawaii may be, there are a lot of us, I'm sure, who actually LIKE cold weather and the change of seasons.<br><br>I'm sure I'd like to visit there, but I wouldn't want to live there. EVER.<br><br>
Jack had little to say about "the cold wintry weather", ...but...<br><br>I have WeatherPop set to Sydney. I've 1/2 dozen mates living thereabouts<br>...but the temp downunda hasn't hit below 100F mark in quite some time.<br><br>107 & 111 degrees is just insane!<br><br>As for me;<br>the wind was pounding the side of the house so hard it kept waking me up.<br>So I put on the TV to watch "the Return of the King" and I couldn't hear the <br>Battle Scenes over the racket going on outside. <br><br><br>OH! I forgot:<br>LOVE: I Love that I was proven right all along about Global Warming.<br>HATE: I Hate that I'm stuck in the middle of it along with everyone else.<br><br><br>
