Alarming Confusion

Icy start, but 2008 may be in top 10 warmest years

After the coldest start to a year in more than a decade, spring will bring relief to the northern hemisphere from Thursday. [...]

But not in Canada you say... such a pity.

Obviously Mother Nature has a hate on for Canadians.
We know it was wrong of us to stand idly by and let Al Gore show all those explicit photographs of what you're going to look like 30 years from now. But seriously [...]

Sorry Scott Feschuk, but according to Environment Canada's senior climatologist, Dave Phillips... it is far from over. March 20th will not bring spring to Canada. No reprieve for winter-weary, climatologist says
[...] And while Phillips is forecasting six more weeks of winter weather, he says not every day will be like that.

"We typically see in Eastern Canada anywhere of 10 to 15 per cent of our annual snowfall comes after the first day of spring,'' said Phillips. ''Out west some of the big Paul Bunyan snowfalls on the Prairies have occurred in April and May.''

Environment Canada is predicting the first month of spring is going to be colder than normal across the country.

In May, conditions will warm up in much of the East, but the forecast calls for colder than normal temperatures for the West, the territories, Newfoundland and Labrador, and in the northern half of Quebec. [...]

My advice is, don't put away your shovels or your Icebreakers just yet! You will be needing them until the middle of May, perhaps even sometime in June.

Global Warming... Why have you forsaken me.... So much for my love life.

I was going to make a smart-assed remark about you at least HAVING a love life (if only with a boat) but your link leads to a blank page, so... maybe not.

Are you using Internet Explorer for your web browser by chance? The link that you say is blank does indeed go to my "boat love" post.

Anywho... It is only with a boat. A boat that I can't have. Its just like the real thing!
