You Call That Cold?

Looks PhotoShopped, doesn’t it?

While we here in Mitchieville are enjoying one of the warmest winters on record, Europe is still under extreme cold conditions, with temperatures dropping to -36 Celsius. Hundreds of deaths have been reported, and thousands are still without power. When The Mayor heard that news last night, it made him pause for a brief second, right before he threw a giant log on the raging fire. It made The Mayor think how lucky we are here in Mitchieville, how sweet the cocoa TLDG made him, how he’s probably going to have to go upstairs again and turn down the thermostat, and at some point tomorrow he’s going to have to change into pants.

So, you see, we all have our problems. Some are complex like what The Mayor described about his personal situation, while other problems are relatively straight forward, like the chilly spell they’re experiencing in Europia. That’s what we in the blogging business refer to as “life”.

    You’d be much colder if you didn’t have that hot air coming down from Ottawa

    The snow piled on the cars does look like it’s piled higher than on the roadway in front of them. …

    I’d read that in the Ukraine, they’d used up a tenth of their natural gas allocation from Russia, in 3 days of cold last week. Something to think about for those that advocate keeping all your eggs in one basket.

    This is God’s way of at hinting that there may be reason to be a bit skeptical about Global Warming.

    Maybe if enough Europeans freeze to death this Winter,the message MIGHT get across, though I don’t understand why anyone would freeze with all that cheap windmill and solar panel electricity available.

    Yeah, we’ve had an extremely mild winter down here in Louisiana (USA). After the miserable record cold one of 2011 it was surely welcome.

    I hope Don is right, and that Europia comes to its senses.

    Hell, I really don’t care, come to think of it. Let ‘em die in their ignorance.

    I just hope that WE COME TO OUR SENSES here on the continent that really matters. Except for Mexico…they can die in their ignorance, too. Of course, only about 1% of the population of Mexico has ever even heard about global warming, so I guess they’re not truly ignorant.

    Well, scratch that. That would make them “double ignorant.” Yeah, that’s it. I’ve spent quite a bit of time in Mexico, and “Double Ignorant” is a pretty good way to describe the whole useless nation.

    Andy,next time you’re talking to your good buddy Barack, mention that we Canadians really need that Keystone pipeline.

    Winter here in Kelowna is very mild this year,last year was cold,year before was coldest since 1969.

    A guy fell through the ice on one of the lakes a few days back and drowned. Normally the ice would be about six inches thick at this time of year.

    Don, I’ll be sure and mention the Keystone deal to Barack at our next beer summit.

    I swear, the guy just churns my guts. But, I’ll see what I can do.

    Yeah, I almost died last winter. This winter I’ve actually been barefooted, and in shorts a few days when we hit 80 (F). Been easy on the natural gas bill, too. Didn’t fall through any ice, and die, though.

    Thank God for small favors.

    Big cold blast coming in tonight. Had to put the ferns back in the storage house.

    I really DO NOT KNOW how y’all Canadians do it. I lived for four of my 52 years in cold weather country, and even though I’d never trade the experiences…I’d never do it again. Y’all are just tough. Seriously. Just tough.

    Or too dumb to move to where the sun shines! ;-)

    Or we live in God’s country and enjoy reading of the cold parts.
