Seriously? You're comparing LOCAL temperatures to NATIONWIDE temperatures and you think you have an argument? The real question however is what was the average global temperature. What's happening locally is evidence of climate change whether it's up or down.

No, I didn't compare anything. I posted about weather just like the OP.

To me I think we are seeing more extremes in weather patterns. Storms seem to be getting stronger and have worse results on population.
Increased strength could be coming from warmer world wide temps. Last 2 winters have seen wilder weather with large swings in temp.(Drought in Calf.) and precip(large amounts of snow in NE). depending on your location.

There's been far fewer severe storms over the last 5 years than normal. The Global Chicken Little's have been saying the storms were going to be more severe. Another one of their dire predictions up in smoke.

The Earth is not warmer, that is an absolute myth. They have no 100 year average because they have no clue what the average temps were 100 years ago.

Who cares about the weather and temps in the US for one winter out of billions. Besides, the US isn't the world.

I believe what we are seeing is DIFFERENT. I do NOT believe what we are seeing is "weird" or whatever you cant to call it.

Nature is what it is. We puny humans have too short a time here to understand.

Ok, Stronger storms are different then the past. They happen to be part of an extreme change in weather patterns which are occuring. Warmer Temps. are part of the cause. That HS physics class some 40 years ago showed that warmer temps created changes.

I believe weather record keeping started in the 1890's.
