I wonder where those folks are that are protesting about "Global Warming" :innocent:

After seeing those pictures....wow....  It's all ice down here in Dallas and you know the City shuts down for just a drop of snow.  So everything is closed - schools, businesses, etc.  I guess the Steelers and Packers brought their weather down here with them :mad1:  Well they can take it back! :mad1: We have reached our high today at 19 degrees!  That is unheard of for Dallas!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I want my heat back.... :blue: :blue: :blue: :crying: :crying: :crying: :crying: :crying: :crying: :crying: :crying:

And on top of that...we are having wind speed from 30-35 mph! :scared:

I'd rather have everyday in the mid-20s than 19 one day and 70 the next. That's Spring in Chicago. My least favorite season of all here, by a large margin. I always get sick with those dramatic temp swings.

Global warming: The non-scientists got out in front of the scientific community with this global warming label. It's unfortunate, because Americans like everything summed up in 4 words or less. But since opponents of the phenomenon are gaining support because they are repeating your 4 words, the scientific community has had to come up with 2 words that better explain the phenomenon: "Climate Change." Climate change describes perfectly what wilsonboy was talking about: record cold, record heat, record snow, record rain, record drought, record hurricane, etc..

Wow that really is a horrible thought and feeling when you realise you've had a worse winter than Chicago :scared: Thankfully the last 3-4 weeks we've avoided any further snow but the big advantage you guys have over us is you can deal with the snow much better than us. The whole country/area just goes into panic mode when we get a load of snow or really bitter conditions and the whole place comes to a halt. That's the story of this country to be honest :rofl_2:

They've had 3 of these so far, and a 4th on the way after it passes through Chicago.

I've been here almost 20 years and never EVER have seen that kind of snow. Not even CLOSE! I mean, that's absurd!  :scared: :scared:

In 2007 and 2008--the only two winters I EVER complained about, the cold was brutal :crying: --but we've had good temps in 2009, 2010, and 2011.

One more. My cousin took this picture. 82nd Street, Manhattan, in front of her building.




I'm just sayin', don't get all freaked out over a once in a lifetime event or you'll never want to come to NYC  ;-()

Still waiting in Chicago. I'm watching the news, and they are frothing at the mouth showing pictures of sleet getting blown back in the air by unexceptional gusts of wind. Nothing to get excited about at this point despite the hype and misleading imagery. Real snow flakes fell for about 1/2 around 2:30, but it's been steady sleet. The worst was to hit at 3pm, then 6pm, now maybe midnight...???

How's the blizzard of 2011 treating you?

Raining pretty hard here now.  The bad news is that it is 30 degrees out so it is gonna freeze.  Crap.  It's suppose to be like this for a long time.
Good Luck on the Court!!!
