    It's the methane trapped in the permafrost that might be the biggest problem with regard to a positive feedback loop.

    (Note that Krugman says it CO2 from the permafrost, but I think he means methane)

    Record lows today in Colorado, 17F in Denver, old record was 25F in 1905. Freezing fog/mist all day. Right now it's 23F in the Springs, usual high for the date is 66F. In fact, today's high temp is about equal to the record low for the date (23F)!

    This needed a bump. I was just rereading through it. Good to see MJD active. And I had completely forgotten about Figo's passion on this topic.

    Not to mention the biggest flameout in board history. :shock:

    Figo--what part of that last (which was in your original post, which I cut 99% of) do you not undestand? Continue posting these articles in toto and you're banned. Period.

Then I paid 300 euros for a flight to Exeter, which they told us was cancelled at midnight and after spending a night in hideous terminal one, I was put on a flight to Southampton on the 21st at 9pm, which was delayed by about three hours. By the time we got on the flight at circa midnight, they told us Southampton airport was shut and we would be diverted to Cardiff! I eventually arrived in Cardiff at 1.30am and had to wait more than an hour for a shuttle from Cardiff to Exeter, then my Granddad very kindly collected me from Exeter airport at circa 6am this morning.

    So instead of arriving home on mid-afternoon on December 20, I eventually got home about 42-hours late! So much bloody hassle for a routine one hour flight!
    Traveling sucks, traveling in the winter? Super sucks.

    My friend was asked to drive an old lady down to the New York airport on Sunday. I told him i heard that because of the recent snow , flights were gonna be 2-3 days late. I made the mistake of saying IF she got a flight i would go with him on the 3 hour drfive like a good friend should.

    To my shock, she said she had a 7pm flight. I begged him to make sure she really did have a flight because i didnt mind spending my day off helping an old women but if she doesnt actually ly out im gonna be pissed.

    We were assured her flight was on. Drove her down, dropped her off and found out monday morning she called a car to take her back home- no flight! :x

    Thanks for the concern. I have all the above. I also have a four foot snow drift on the patio blocking my back door from the garage. What I don't have is a snow shovel.
    The real crisis is, I am the long standing designated toy opener/assembler for 4 and 8 year old grandsons at daylight tomorrow morning seven miles cross town.

    I am in Green Bay. My car outside is a block of ice. It will be some work to thaw it out tomorrow to get home 90 miles away.
