Its June 10th. Its supposed to be warm and sunny. As I'm at the gym, sweating, grimacing, and frowning, I look out the window and its SNOWING! Yep, we are having a blizzard on June 10th. I think that has to be some kind of record. Its been snowing for about an hour and a half.

I sure would like to sit and have a chat with Mr. Gore right now.

I'm sure he'd have a great answer, too.

Think it'll melt by August?

Snowing? This is suppose to be summer...It's in the 90s here in Tennessee but we are suppose to have some pretty bad thunderstorms today and tomorrow...We had a doozy here last night....I'll take your snow and you can have the heat and humidity okay?

That's crazy. Global warming my butt. Sounds like global cooling in Idaho. It's been pretty hot in Missouri but we've had a lot of thunderstorms and rain. It is nice today but I don't think I'd want to see snow. I wouldn't mind 75 degree weather and no rain though. Global warming, hah!

Hang in there. I just checked the weather and it's supposed to be in the 70s and sunny by Friday and through the weekend.

Freezing & snow on Tuesday, 70's & sunny by Friday. No wonder I'm so freaking moody.

Still the same here: sunny/raining/windy/bright'gloomy all at once.

Tho', strangely, if global warming really takes hold here, it'll get about 20 degrees colder - which it really ought to be anyway.

Lodi, maybe you could sell some snow to those poor hot folks above me - tell 'em it's yellow because it's special.

El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO; commonly referred to as simply El Niño) is a global coupled ocean-atmosphere phenomenon. The Pacific ocean signatures, El Niño and La Niña are important temperature fluctuations in surface waters of the tropical Eastern Pacific Ocean. The name El Niño, from the Spanish for "the little boy", refers to the Christ child, because the phenomenon is usually noticed around Christmas time in the Pacific Ocean off the west coast of South America.[1] La Niña, similarly, means "the little girl". These effects were first described in 1923 by Sir Gilbert Thomas Walker from whom the Walker circulation, an important aspect of the Pacific ENSO phenomenon, takes its name. The atmospheric signature, the Southern Oscillation (SO) reflects the monthly or seasonal fluctuations in the air pressure difference between Tahiti and Darwin, Australia. The most recent occurrence of El Niño started in September 2006[2] and lasted until early 2007.[3]. From June 2007 on, data indicated a weak La Niña event, strengthening in early 2008.

Sorry Easy, but La Nina is raining on my parade too, but at least it's liquid not solid & I don't have to water Unfortunately according to most weather scientists (meteorologists) these crappy weather events are occurring more frequently due to Global Warming. They cause weather extremes everywhere. I love the Sun too, but I'd rather wear gumbies all Summer than swelter, sweat & watch the forest die. It's hard not to be depressed but thank Gawd you won't have to pay the AC bills our Southern & Eastern friends do. If that doesn't work drink a couple of Spanish coffees & you'll be Ole in no time

I'm prepared to Death Float in the peeing down rain

Gawd Felix, you just made me spit diet coke on an originally signed form that's getting submitted with a grant today.

Snow update: Its just after noon here. It has snowed steadily for 5 hours and now has turned into snow & rain mix. The fastpitch team I'm coaching is supposed to have a game tonight. I'm praying to the Gods of Mushy Ball Fields that it gets canceled.

I'll take blizzards and 20 below 24/7/365 and love it. Me and my dogs, and even Buddy the cat. You can always put more clothes on, but you can only take so much off. I'd live in the Yukon if my wife would go.

We got winter down here, but not quite that cold yet!

Game canceled. The irony is now we have blue skies and sunshine.

Oh, but haven't you heard? They don't call it Global Warming anymore...they changed it to Global Climate Change so when the weather goes the other way their butts are covered.

Here in central NJ it was in the 90s and with the heat index, supposedly "felt" like 107. All I know is that it was hot, hot, hot, and I'm about to go eat some ice cream to cool off!

Hey, I'm in Central NJ as well, Geri. It's hot as blue blazes here. My kids finished school some time ago but the schools are closing here because of the heat. It's been in the upper 90's for 4 days, what happened to spring?

We've got rain in the Pacific NW, but it beats the tornados and flooding my parents are experiencing in Indiana. I'm suddenly grateful for all of the clouds and 50 degree temperatures.

Hang in there, Lodi! Surely it will melt off soon!

I gotta admit 2 things...

1. That would totally piss me off...or how did you put it? leave me in a snit.

2. So glad I don't live there...I'd have had my annuals planted per the "Mother's Day" rule and, well, let's just not go there.

I am so sorry for your summer screw...unless you enjoyed which case...(shut up Phitz.).

Hi Maureen!
I live in the Delaware Valley, pretty much right in between Trenton and Princeton. I see you live somewhere near the Shore. It's been storming most of the evening, with tornado watches, so my cats are under the bed. It feels so swampy here, I could easily believe I live in Florida. All I need are a few palm trees and alligators.

I'm in North Jersey. It thundered earlier, the taxes are ridiculous, it's very humid now, and people say "fffk" a lot.

No one from New Jersey says Joysey!!!!! We might say "what exit"? (you might need to live here to get that one) Crazy enough we didn't get any thunderstorms at the shore (Monmouth County) last night. Wish we did. Lots cooler today. Crazy how the weather in this country is all over the place and so extreme, tornados, floods, snow, heat waves all at the same time, weird...

Don't think it will do you any good to
"have a chat wih Al Gore"
Contrary to poular opinion, he didn't
CAUSE global climate change!!!!
He was just the messenger....
We had KILLER 90 degree heat for almost
a week here....and several BAD storms....

Sounds like MEN - o - pause in Idaho.


* You sell your home heating system at a yard sale.

* The person you sleep with complains about snow piling up on the bed.

* Your husband jokes that instead of buying a wood stove, he is using you to heat the family room this winter. Rather than just saying you are not amused, you shoot him.

* Your husband chirps, "Hi honey, I'm home." and you reply, "Well, if it isn't Ozzie f*cking Nelson".

* The phenobarbital dose that wiped out the Heaven's Gate Cult gives you four hours of decent rest.

* You find Guacamole in your hair after a Mexican dinner.

* You change your underwear after every sneeze.

* You need Jaws Of Life to help you out of your car after returning home from an Italian restaurant.

* You ask Jiffy Lube to put you up on a hoist.

* You take a sudden interest in "Wrestlemania".

* You're on so much estrogen that you take your Brownie troop on a field trip to Chippendales.

Al Gore invented the internet and caused global warming. Its in the bible.

I live in Miami. Since I've lived here, I only experienced one snowfall back in 1977. This hasn't happened before or since then. I wouldn't mind dealing with a late season snow storm than hurricane season anyday.

Well do I recall the blizzard of '89 here in Jax. Half an inch of icy slush that they saw coming for a week, shut the bridges and paralyzed the biggest city in America for three days. You'd think they'd never heard of rock salt and cinders. We put together Christmas toys for the grandchildren by the light of the power pole burning outside the dining room window, after the lightning hit it.

Ah, yes, those White Christmas memories.
