You have got to be kidding me

You have got to be kidding me

New Yorkers are such wimps. Here in Minnesota, that’s what a bright summer day looks like. That’s why we support global warming.

Have a great day.

Glad I live on the Island. We only got rain and boy did we need it!


I didn’t know ALGORE was at the university to discuss global warming?

I live an hour south of Ithaca, and I was SHOCKED when all the school districts around here are either closed (as ours is) or on a 2-hr delay. This is what it looked like out our front door:

    That’s such a pretty winter scene. Unfortunately, it’s not winter. It’s still pretty though.

“You have got to be kidding me.”

Global warming doesn’t kid.

My reaction would have been: “You have got to be f’n kidding me!” – but that is just me with my lack of language restraint.

A sunny 70 degrees here in Texas, Prof.

Our climate is better in SOOOOooooooo many ways…!!!

In like a lamb, out like a lion this year, eh Professor?

I’ll echo what Rags said: It’s sunny and 83 degrees with light winds and 0% chance of precipitation here in El Paso.

I’ll have to cover my tomatoes and peppers tonight to protect their blossoms and little green tomatoes; it’s expected to go down to 39 degrees. Oh, it’s a hard life in Central Virginia…. ;-p

snow in april not at all uncommon here, but today its 4″ of rain and 50’s.
yesterday was high 30’s.

I believe this is the result of the non-negative Orin Hatch blog post. 🙂

Chicago: 55, lots of sunshine and hot dogs!

This is why the call it climate change, not global warming, right? 🙂

At least the snow will help protect the plants. There were a few flakes in the air here this morning at 3000 feet on the Tennessee border and it will be below freezing tonight.

“Warming” is falling -*SQUAWK!*– “warming” is falling –*SQUAWK!*– a piece of it fell and just hit me on the head!

Not to be confused with the butterfly that kicked the Obamessiah in the head on the right side and forever tilted his head in a hard leftward direction from which he never recovered.

Pray — and vote! — that in November we DO!!

Oh my Professor 😉 Though I am sure you were nice and warm in the halls of academia all day. And thanks for the pic, for it is a nice reminder of why I LOVE BEING A SOUTHERNER!!

We’ve been having consistent 25mph winds w/ gusts to 40mph for the last 8 hours, probably will continue through tomorrow.

Usually the spring weather is a bit more stable by this time of year.

We should be thankful for precipitation in any form right now as I believe its going to be warmer than usual and quite dry throughout the summer.

we had 89 a couple weeks ago, but 35 last night. We are at the “tipping point” for sure … give me $500 billion and fifty years, and I’ll tell you what that means, and will include a guarantee to save the planet …

or I’ll get you a “consensus” right now for that kind of money … how many self proclaimed experts do you need?

2nd Ammendment Mother | April 23, 2012 at 5:41 pm

I know everyone thinks it’s crazy, but we live on the southern Texas border and we had two inches of snow here on April 30, 1991 – the day our daughter was born.

    Midwest Rhino in reply to 2nd Ammendment Mother. | April 23, 2012 at 5:52 pm

    that’s crazy … I lived in Dallas over three years … I think we got an inch one time. If I owned Texas and Hell … I’d rent out Texas and live in Hell. 🙂

      Galveston county and Galveston got 4″ a couple of winters ago, and the usual snow line is about Bryan/College Station north of Houston.

      Of course that was the winter BWI got 40+ inches in one storm and DC was locked up tight.

No joke…Radio weatherman this morning said 5″ snow/freezing rain in western Maryland plus as much as another 5″ overnight. We, DC won’t get anything…Baltimore might see flakes.

We’re what 200 miles south of you…the whole state of Pennsylvania.

Where was that ski resort that had already shut down for the season that got more than total they had all winter.

At my place just north of Denver, the thermometer reads a lovely 83 degrees, with abundant sunshine.

Though I miss friends and family, I’m SOOOO glad not to live in the frozen Midwest anymore.

81°F here just west of Rapid City today. Absolutely beautiful with humidity at 21%. cheers chuck

86 degrees in West Richland, WA. Not to rub it in or anything.

Eh.. we got about 6″ of snow the first week of April. It was in the 60’s the day before and the 60’s the day after. It’s unusual but not uncommon to get snow in May as well. We just kind of roll with it.

Isn’t Ithica part of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge? It seemed that way last time I was there with all the No Fracking signs.

Don’t complain, dude! My mother-in-law (who is less than 30 miles from you) had 8 inches in the shallow spots, and more than a foot in the deeper spots.

In addition, the neighborhood bear is threatening to go back into hibernation under her deck (even though it couldn’t find its shadow anywhere).

Living in south-central Alaska, in a town which exceeded its all-time snow record this winter by nearly a foot, I confess I’m grateful that this last gasp of winter went elsewhere. Still have more than 2 feet of the stuff covering my yard, way down from the 7 or so feet we had in early February. We even got a snow day, which is a rare thing in these parts. So take more pictures of the pretty stuff, and remember it won’t last long.
