    Darn, that global warming…

  2. David Andrew says:

    Time to throw another box of copies of OCP’s “Bustin’ Bread” into the furnace . . .

  3. Romulus says:

    It’s going to be well into the 70s here all week. (Maybe I’ll give the dog a bath.) Wish we could have a little of your winter, Father.

  4. Romulus: You wouldn’t want to give the dog a bath here today.

  5. Joamy says:

    It’s been subzero in North Dakota -30 some below with wind chills. The dog would blow away up here.

  6. Derik says:

    I suppose with the proper gear it is possible to do that trip.

  7. Paul S. Quist says:

    I have a confession to make. It’s dark, cold and snowing up here in Edmonton, AB (Alberta, not Alabama), but on Sunday we leave for a ten day trip to Maui. First trip to Hawaii.

    Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

    We’re currently enjoying/suffering more snow in a day than we’ve experienced in some 40 years. And sure enough … already we’re being told it’s global warming.

  9. Mike D. says:

    Here in north Florida it was a chilly 64 when I got up this morning and it’s supposed to get up to 77! But the weatherman did say it’s about 20 degrees above the average temperature for this time of year.

  10. Mitch says:

    We are having an incredible ammount of snow here in E. Washington. Around 24inches in 24 hours. I am stuck at my school in the dorms. The roads are just too deep to drive through unless you have a suburban assult vehicle, w/ 4wheel drive.

  11. chironomo says:

    A chilly 79 degrees this morning, had to turn the air conditioner down so I could walk around the house without having to don a robe…

    Seriously… yes, you will be told that it is global warming. The latest “party line” is that this weather is a problem because the unusual cold temperatures are masking the actual warming that’s taking place and causing people to think that it is actually cooling. Only in the mind of a progressive could cooling actually be warming. Black is white… we are winning the war in Oceania!

  12. chironomo says:

    … or is it Eastasia where we are winning the war? In all the excitement I’ve forgotten.

  13. Gloria says:

    At the 2000-2500 foot level in Grass Valley, CA.,we had almost constant snow for two days. The lighted Christmas deer in my yard had fallen over and was buried. My grandson and I went out to right him and I sank over my boot tops. We have almost a foot of snow. Today all is ice and I dared not go down the stairs to feed the birds. My towhees, juncos, scrub and stellar jays, acorn woodpeckers and assorted finches are satisfied with my throwing black oil sunflower seeds and hulled peanuts from the deck. They’d better eat quickly before the new expected snow arrives later today and buries the chow. Yup! Global warming all right. A small arbor beside my front porch outdoors has statues of St. Joseph with the Child Jesus and Our Lady of Fatima. They were covered with snow. I have them lighted at night for the Christmas season and had to uncover them and the flood light.

    Huh, and here I was cycling home from work in what feels like 1°C (apparently it’s actually 5°C) and thinking it was pretty chilly and that I was glad I had wrapped up warm!

  15. Ohio Annie says:

    Chironomo, the party line is that global warming causes greater fluctuations in high vs. low temperatures. of course global cooling would do that too. or even global staying-the-same!

    David A, that was excellent!!! ROTFL!!!!

  17. Jayna says:

    It’s 65 here in Atlanta right now. Last week the highs were in the 40s. I’ve lived here for 12 years and I’ve still not gotten used to these weather changes.

  18. Rob F. says:


    Start saving your pennies for your second trip. Nobody ever goes to Hawaii once!

  19. Rudy of CC says:

    Brrr, so brutally cold here. I think we will have a high of 79 degrees. Ha Ha.

  20. Tiny says:

    Do you ride a snow-mobile at the farm?

  21. Judy Fradl says:

    How far is it from the house to the chapel?

  22. techno_aesthete says:

    -14 degrees Fahrenheit, eh? That IS a bit chilly.
