Here we go again for the11th, 12th, 13th or whatever #&@^%@# Snowstorm AGAIN

We have some very good friends in Finland. The land of one hour of daylight on “first day” of Winter, and one hour of twi-light on the “first day” of summer. Daylight Savings Time is called “Summer Time”, although theyaverage about 20 hours of daylight from mid May to mid July. During the Winter, it can get cold like a lot of days that highs are -30C (-28F) and get a lot of -40C or -40F (the same). And a lot of snowy days. They get a lot of snow storms, but not very deep snow storms. They are amazed when we get 30inches or 75cm of snow. But this year we’re pushing 5 feet of snow here, or 150cm of snow. I told our friends we got their winter and they got our winter. But, this sunday night into Monday, this is coming. (It never stops. We’re down to less than 5% snow cover or less. But nature this year hates that. :-) )

Now this:
Here we go again

  1. With the extreme weather situation getting worse, it is good, at least, the argument over the upcoming Global Warming has been quiet down. After wasting so much time in debate without taking constructive action, it is time for us to take a serious look at the available solutions which can allow us to make a quick fix with the least cost.
    No doubt, the vegan solution is the way to go.
    Just in case if you don’t know, a plant based diet can cut down carbon footprint of each individual dramatically, far greater than any suggestion from energy-saving bulb to electric car. Anyone can do it right away, starting from next meal, no need any input from government. Actually, any responsible Earth citizen should have started doing it.

    As if on cue, the leftist totalitarian infers that to not be vegan is to be an irresponsible “Earth citizen”, whatever that is. I suppose the next step is to require all “Earth citizens” to be vegan under penalty of tax. If that doesn’t work; death! After all, what high and might,y righteous “Earth citizen” could allow anyone to even think of eating meat?

    Where do these fuckin’ numbskulls come from? Sorry, I know: public education indoctrination.

  3. I have no problem at all with Renee suggesting that we should all go vegan, as long as it is voluntary. Personally, I belong to PeTA, People Eating Tasty Animals. :)

  4. Well, I do have a problem with Renee suggesting that we should all go vegan. That’s how this leftist crap starts, with a suggestion. Next it’s a request, then a demand and finally a law. Renee, has no idea what is good for me, you or anyone else. She’s “suggesting” something based on her religious belief that we, as humans, are somehow destroying the world. Then she naïvely suggests we can save the world by not eating bacon. If we listened to the Renee’s of the this country the entire meat, fowl, and fish industries would be wiped out costing trillions of dollars and millions of jobs and most likely destroying the entire economy and country.

    I believe she referred to that economic devastation above as a “quick fix with the least cost.” Entire industries destroyed and millions unemployed…yeah that’s a very quick and very cheap “fix”. Idiots!

    These leftists have tunnel vision. Do they even think through their stupid assed ideas? Ever?

    Now what to do about India and all those cows walking around. If all that CO2 coming from cow farts is in the air, what are Algore and the Vegans suggesting India do? Or is that our fault as usual? Make more “gas”, Billions of trees are counting on YOU!

  6. After reading that editorial in The Mail & Guardian I can see where they’re coming from….the far, far left. Algore (winner of the Nobel Peace Prize just like every other left winger on earth) would be better off teaching the folks in Africa how to grow food, vegetable and animal, purify water and use toilet paper. Sorry, can’t use toilet paper till they get plumbing, my bad. That totalitarian socialism is working just fine for them.

    Charlotte is from a farm area of South Africa. Whereas someone who posted on a Photography Site where I did at one time lived in Zimbabwe (Rhodesia) and moved to Spain. She said Zim went about 50 years or more backwards from a food exporter to a food importer. That’s where Algore should go and peddle his pablum.

  8. By the way Renee, we humans are omnivores so we’re supposed to eat meat. Not to do so would be an affront to nature, the climate and Gaia. Vegans are no more than deniers of omnivorism. (yes, I said it, omnivorism!). Not eating meat would upset the tender balance between animals, man and earth thereby altering the natural balance of nature and climate and destroying the world.

  9. I have no idea where Charlotte is from however, if she’s a farmer she understands the need for veggies and animals and most likely has a healthy respect for both and the part both play in nature.

  10. Wait a minute. According to my international clock, it’s 3:27 AM on Sunday May 16th in South Africa. Good night? How late do you stay up young lady? Well, good night Charlotte.

    Hoagie, get your International Clock Fixed :-) It says SA is also 2 months ahead of us and into Winter. Well, then again, Algore did bring Winter to SA then.

  12. Sorry, I meant March not May. I get my “M” months confused. You know, March, Mapril, May. I’m just so excited it’s almost Patty’s day I’m in a daze.

  13. The current forecast map has the snow staying to the south of us; I am pleased. York, Hoagie and Hube, on the other hand, will get some of that Global Warming!

  15. I looked at Accu Weather for Willow Grove and they predict snow beginning about 11pm and ending tomorrow morning with only 1-3″ of glowball warming.

  16. “How late do you stay up young lady? Well, good night Charlotte.”
    Hoagie, I’ve always been a night owl, but for the last year or so it seems my body clock has been stuck on EST, whereas I reside in the CAT time zone (GMT +2)

    Yorkshire mentioned Zimbabwe, I’ve just returned from a trip to that country. In a final attempt to get inflation under control they’ve done away with their currency, and switched over to the US dollar. As only paper money and no coins are available, prices are rounded to the nearest dollar. In lieu of coinage one is offered another item of equal value, for instance, we bought sunblock and were given a few juicy mangoes as change.
    We stayed on the shores of Lake Kariba, boating over from the Zambian side. Our accommodation, which would not be out of place in a first world suburb, was located on the shoreline. The only anomaly was the presence of hippos and crocs at the end of the garden.

    And to think Charlotte, I get aggravated with yellow jackets and Japanese beetles at my pool!

  18. Hoagie, I live in a far more sedate part of Africa. My dear mother, who is unwilling to watch snakes on TV, has managed to get through the last 80 years without being traumatised too often. (She does stay at home when we go gallivanting around the rest of Africa.) The worst we get is an occasional gecko, although, I am waging a protracted war against several lawn moles.

  19. Damned global warming, er, climate change, er, extreme weather. Probably because you drove a fossil fueled vehicle, took a shower longer than 2 minutes, and ate a steak.

    My parents thought they would get away from all the snow, to a degree, when moving from mid-Jersey to southern Jersey. They’ve gotten more snow in the last 5 years than they can remember getting in the previous 20.

  21. Oh my, Renee! Can we call’em or what?

    A global warming alarmist wants to have “deniers” imprisoned. Lawrence Tortello isn’t even a climate scientist, he’s an assistant professor of philosophy at the Rochester Institute of Technology. But he thinks he’s an expert not only in climate but also the law.

    We have good reason to consider the funding of climate denial to be criminally and morally negligent. The charge of criminal and moral negligence ought to extend to all activities of the climate deniers who receive funding as part of a sustained campaign to undermine the public’s understanding of scientific consensus.

    Read more at Lonely Conservative. I warned ya sooner or later these zealots would prefer to imprison those who disagree than argue. And, as usual, the purveyor of this stupid nonsense is a “college professor”. Cause ya see, college professors know so much more than we mere mortals! Seems to me college professors lack experience and maturity an the ability to reason without emotion one usually finds in a horny 16 year old on a date.

    Notice also the use of “scientific consensus”. There was a time when the scientific consensus was that the earth was flat and the sun revolved around the earth. In fact there have been so many times “scientific consensus” or its modern equivalent “Settled science” has been believed only to be later refuted, proved totally wrong or in some cases shown to be a hoax or fraud. Guess which category I think man made globall warming falls under? Also the myth of a healthy vegan lifestyle?
