Default So, I guess global warming might be helping?

Boy, I guess it would be real cold up there if it were'nt for global warming. -50 with? How cold do you think it would be without warming, -70? - 80?

Well usually it gets down to minus 200 or so, so this global warming is really helping things. Maybe trees will grow on my land?

I do believe we're in a cold period now as many scientists predicted, rather than a warm cycle...

it certainly was warmer before we had all this global warming hype shoved at us. Of course, they'll say what we are experiencing now is weather. Now, if it were warmer, it would be because of global warming.

A couple of years ago an old timer from Delta Junction told me that it doesn't get -70 there anymore and that it used to be a fairly regular thing.

Umm Met according to this site the record low for Delta Junction was -63 in 1947.
Intellicast - Delta Junction Historic Weather Averages in Alaska (99737) Interesting that they had the record high in the same year.

You can never trust sites for temps. You have to have a cheap plastic thermometer of your own out in the yard to get the true temps! Temps can change quite a bit in just yards or miles. In Sterling we see that alot. Higher elevations or low spots near the river can be 10 degrees different easy.

Thanks for the info on temps! Only reason i remebered that was i have looked into the temps in various cities quite a bit as being a socal native i fully expect the shock of the cold but trying to make it not quite so overwhleming by living in the coldest areas! Here in socal once you get a few miles from the beach temps rise dramatically. I guess you saying same thing happens there in reverse in some areas.
