Yeah, if you listen to all the weather 'experts' speak about Global Warming, they explain it all in scientific and logical terms. When it is forty below, I do not want to hear scientific and logical about Global Warming. I want to hear when the heck spring is going to rear its beautiful head. This morning was -25 C (-13 F). That is a start, but not a good one. The 'fore'casters say it will slowly get warmer from now into the future, with no more nights as cold as last night or the previous two months. Come-oooooonn Global Warming. Or at least my area warming. Everyone tells me the same stoopid thing. "This is Canada, and we get winter" to which I reply with a bunch of not nice words beginning with F, G, C, M among others. I do know my alphabet.

Come on boys, it's not that bad. I mowed my lawn today for the first time this year - and I'm at 54 degrees north. Just another month and it will warm up.

Here I was sitting in a pair of shorts (outer wear), and t-shirt, worrying about you Northerners, and then I woke up! Another lovely day in Oz :twisted:

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.

Was thinking the same thing - I got sunburnt today working on the Goldwing in the driveway. We have had a lot of rain - but summer is now over tomorrow for us.

Lot of humidity - perspired like a melting ice block.

Real tired of the weather here too, Global Warming or not!! Woke up to -10F this am. Just broke the record here(Bangor, Me.)for the coldest February ever! Never got above 32 for the whole month. We have also had the 2nd snowiest winter on record also. We are at about 120" so far with I am sure more to come.Hopefully not too much more though.Riding anytime soon,let alone mowing the grass which will be soggy for ever,looks to be a long way off.But today it is sunny,no wind yet and supposed to get to the mid 20's. Yeah!

We're about 120" which is about normal, but it was the coldest February in history for us. Global warming my butt! They can't predict the weather correctly day to day but I'm supposed to believe they can tell me what's going to happen 30 years from now? I don't think so!

well, being a "northerner" I can relate. I remember what it was like up there. right now, where I used to live is +12*F with the wind chill, and where I am now, it +36*F, so im not gonna complain.
