    The South is still running out of water.

    California is still burning.

    It was 80 degrees in New York three weeks ago and as as NoOneLikesUs said, California is ablaze and the South needs water. Something is going on with the eco-system.

    California burns every year and has for decades and decades. Lack of rain in SoCal is not a new phenomenon.

    Of course one thing that would help prevent, or at least lessen the severity of, these fires would be to go in and clear out all the deadfall in these canyons every year but thanks to the environmental lobby that's illegal.

    If you want to know about global warming, ask the polar bears.

    Amazingly, if you build cities in a Southern California desert, you run out of water.[color]

    How about the fact that I was wearing shorts in 80 degree weather in the Northeast on Oct. 21? Or that there's a real chance I won't have to break out the gloves before the playoffs end around here this season?

    Pern, are you telling me there is no documented case of that happening in the NE before? I find that hard to believe.

    On October 21, Toronto hit 26C, the highest recorded temperature since they've been keeping weather stats--since the mid 1800's.

    In and of itself, it doesn't mean anything. It's just part of a larger puzzle.

    There's nothing going on here that isn't part of a cyclical pattern that's been going on probably since the earth was formed.

    Yes, from fires mostly related to arson.
  12. It got down to 37 the other day in sweat-your-balls-off East Texas.
