It’s only the weather, folks, only the weather

record low temps us 21.11.13 to 28.11.13

This is the story from Drudge and I must say it is bizarrely startling. Over the past week the figures show:

Almost 1000 record low max temps vs 17 record high temps

Records in the last 7 days:

205 snowfall records.
969 Low Max. 203 Low temps.
17 High Temp.
61 High minimum.

What I don’t know, of course, is how unusual it is to be setting temperature records like this at this time of year, but my guess is that this is a very unusual result. Snow in Texas in November does not seem like the norm. Of course since the global warming crowd stopped worrying about global warming and have defined the problem as climate change, this fits right into their narrative but somehow I don’t think they will be pointing this out themselves.

AND JUST FOR GOOD MEASURE: Found this as well which underscores the above. If I read this right, there is more ice this year in the arctic than in any of the previous years, and even if my reading is not perfect, there certainly isn’t less.
