    Ah, it must be great to still believe in global warming, oh shit, it's now climate change, I wonder what name will be used next to demonstrate how hot the planet has gotten: oh, it's cooling everywhere!

    I see @3 doesn't even understand the concept of different seasons in different hemispheres.

    I am in an hotel room eating breakfast and looking out the window at one of the great lakes. It doesn't look frozen over but I shall certainly wander down later and take a closer look. Tis cold out though.

    Marcos, while it has been a bitch of a winter here in New England, particularly Massachusetts but it's the season and it is Mother Nature. Now that it is March, the snow will begin to melt....and fast. Soon enough the marathon will be here....the green anf buds will start making it's way and before we know it, winter will fade away to a memory and we will be bitching about the heat. But you will still be in Argentina, being lead by corrupt idiots stealing from it's people being laughed at by the world.

    Mother nature is not a taking point of an argument Marcos, people can move to a warmer state if they want.

    Ah yes, but you forget to mention your glorious Fall season. While I have no complaints about the Mediterranean climate of Santiago, there is much to be said for the four seasons. (Except for shoveling snow...)

    Jet Stream changes are a major change in the climate change agenda.
    The Great Lakes/Mass. tend in one direction this year, and the UK in the other. The global trend is ever upwards.
    Land dries out, crops fail - especially in sub-Saharan Africa and China, with more to come in the Sertao/deforested Brasil.
    Sub-Saharans will swamp southern Europe and the Chinese will go ... where?

    Chicureo....that was implied in my post. One cannot appreciate the sweetness of fresh fruit without knowing what is bitter. The is not a feeling in the world to describe late April when the buds on tress are about to burst, the Rhododendrons are displaying purple everywhere and the forsythias are in full swing. Spring has always been my season.......reincarnation after winter. Fall is beautiful in New England........but it is also a sign of what is to come....winter.....lol.

    What the stupider Trolls fail to realise, and the others choose not to understand, is that as cold as it is in North America,

    ....its business as usual.

    @ 10 ilsen

    Why are you talking to yourself?

    “The Great Lakes/Mass. tend in one direction this year, and the UK in the other. The global trend is ever upwards.”

    Very interesting, so how come the UK has been VERY cold AND snow everywhere this year?

    :o)

    2012 and 2014 we had virtually no snow......one storm on Halloween for 30 inches and it melted is a week and that was the last storm until last winter. This winter was a killer for snowfall......great for skiing and snowmobiling though.

    Yeah.....despite all this snow.......life does not stop....slows down but does not stop.

    We have had almost no snow here this winter and 3 days of overnight frost with none in daytime. Apart from rain, it has been exceptionally mild. I have had primroses flowering all winter and some of my plants are about 3 weeks ahead of where they should be.

    Yup, the lake is frozen close to the shore. I am not sure what that proves or even what point M A was trying to make. He doesn't live in Argentina anyway.

    perhaps its an argentine secret weapon,
    sledding her troops all the way to the shore.

    Clyde......like some of out past winters. We've had 110 inches of snow fall thus far this year. The urban areas really do not get this must....mainly west (Massachusetts) or up the the ski country...new Hampshire and Vermont does. The Cape got nailed this year also.

    The Trolls think it's the end of the world.

    I suppose we're made of a bit hardier stuff.

    About time you get off your lazy rear end and see it by yourself instead of your usual “my friends told me”

    Are you incapable of relevant comment??

    Both your personal “cheap shots” at the women posters on here are irrelevant- as usual.

    @23 Say, what? I am in Chicago and can see the lake from my hotel room window. But fear not, I shall be in SoAM in a couple of days time, which is more than you can say.
