I'll trade you the polar vortex for some Texas type warmth here in the winter. Deal?

100 degrees here on Tuesday. While that may be OK in Texas....not so much here in Oregon. Many folks don't even own a AC unit here!

A polar vortex to make shocking summer return in eastern U.S. next week. Will liberals blame global warming?

Enjoy the warm, sunny weather while you can.

The Typhoon that hit Japan causes the Jet stream to buckel and allow the cool air to flow south.

This is the 3rd summer in a row with cooler, much cooler than normal temps. And the winters have been brutal.

Depends on where you live. Seriously mild winter for us this winter, and another scorching hotter then usual summer.

But again, lets pay attention to the reality-globally hows it going? Cause thats the numbers that matter.

Hardly typical of July in Cleveland where 90 degrees is not uncommon for this time of year. It sucks, because I look forward to the warmer weather. Low 70s is like mid to late September weather!
I'll take a polar vortex any July. I don't my kid who has to go to football camp here in a few weeks at western ill and he hopes it hangs around. I just laughed and said nah it will be up in the hundreds by then....lol

I read the article and it states that this is due to that massive typhoon in Japan is messing with the jet stream.

So if the OP is curious, this liberal is blaming this on a massive storm.
