I thought it was supposed to be global warming though. If so, what's with all the snow? Obviously that's not taking into account the REAL matter. (Iron particles released from ice when it's melted which some seaweed thrives off therefore ingesting all our CO2.)
50 F this weekend for me! Yippee! It was -4 F yesterday, 10 F today, and suppose to be 50F tomorrow and Sunday. Hopefully that will be enough to reduce the snow down by half. I'm tired of having to step up to get out of my little station wagon when I get home.
6 inches of ice in the driveway bordered by 3 feet of shovelled snow and about 15 inches of icy snow in the yard. Half of that will probably disappear this weekend.
Climate Change, NOT global warming, the media makes it sound like the whole planet is going to become an arid desert and that we're all going to burn, when many areas will probrably end up being wetter and cooler (the UK for example).
The climate will change, it always has been changing, just it probrably wont all change the same way all over the world.
Went into town this morning...no choice, I ran out of ciggies!! (My village is so small, it's not even got a shop or a pub or anything!!)...
Driveway was 4-6 inches of virgin snow, road out of village had seen maybe 4 or 5 cars all morning.
What is all the fuss about? got into town with no probs, parked in Tescos car park...did shopping, came home. Didn't spin wheels or slide once... car was always pointing in the right direction...yet there were tw@ts who were sliding all over the place!
Obviously Emmy was overjoyed when the school announced that it was closed again today, so she has been out playing at snow-wars all day with her mates and the dog.
What an epic journey... just took me 2hrs 30mins to drive home from uni when it usually only takes 40mins. Started snowing hard at lunch time so made a runner in the hope to avoid the chaos... which didn't work.
Snow seems to turn our poor drivers into complete retards! The amount of people braking hard and sliding all over the shop was silly, also the ones not bothering to indicate was incredible. Nearly got wiped out by a lorry as I was crawling up the hill, he was completely out of control with a massive caterpillar digger thing on his trailer.
Then to top it off nearly every time I started making some progress we'd reach some fool who couldn't drive to save their life. 4 cars were all over the shop trying to climb a hill. One woman had her foot hard to the floor and basically ended up blocking the traffic going down the hill cause she ended up sliding 90 degrees back down the hill. Then once she got out the way a lorry not wanting to stop decided he'd drive on our side of the road forcing us to try and reverse up the hill. At the same area some guy going down the hill must have been nipping on as he left massive lines of tyre marks in the snow before eventually hitting the verge and getting stuck in the deep stuff.
In total I saw 7 cars off the road all of which just looked like complete and utter failure of the person driving.
Heard on the radio that they are expecting temperatures to drop down to -6 during the night! Gonna be mad if the slush on the road freezes!
