Global Warming: Bwa-ha-ha! I’ll show you how much power I have over you pathetic humans!
HONOLULU (KHNL) – Spring is nearly upon us, but a chill is sweeping the state.
With temperatures dipping into the 50’s in some neighborhoods people are talking about the cold spell.
(State College, PA) – The bitterly cold temperatures and heavy lake-effect snow are combining to create chaotic conditions across the eastern half of the nation. An Alberta Clipper on Tuesday will add to the weather mess, bringing snow to areas from the upper Plains to the mid-Atlantic states.
Rail and air travel has been curtailed, highway travel around the Great Lakes is treacherous, schools have been closed, water mains have burst and people and animals run the risk of exposure that could lead to frostbite or hypothermia.
A bone-chilling cold wave with temperatures as low as 42 below zero shut down schools for thousands of youngsters Monday, sent homeless people into shelters and put car batteries on the disabled list from the northern Plains across the Great Lakes. At least four deaths were linked to the cold weather.
The cold was accompanied by snow that was measured in feet in parts of upstate New York.
GW: Oh wait, that doesn’t make any sense at all. Mother Nature is making me look like a fool!
