Coldest winter in 1,000 years on its way

After the record heat wave this summer, Russia's weather seems to have acquired a taste for the extreme.

Forecasters say this winter could be the coldest Europe has seen in the last 1,000 years.

The change is reportedly connected with the speed of the Gulf Stream, which has shrunk in half in just the last couple of years. Polish scientists say that it means the stream will not be able to compensate for the cold from the Arctic winds. According to them, when the stream is completely stopped, a new Ice Age will begin in Europe


No wonder so many people from the EU are buying condos in Miami!!!!:D

The La Niña effect looks to be really strong for this winter. I don't follow European weather models very models very closely but that should make for a much colder winter in most of Europe.

It will make for a colder winter here, as well.

Scientists have been right all along. Global climate change fellas. They've been predicting this since the 1970s.

It's been the secret plan to empty out the Middle East and Africa into Europe, so after the Ice Age Europeans can all swoop in.

It's a La Niña year? Darn it, that means a cold winter in north central U.S. El Niño brings us a mild winter up here.
Global warming, my butt!!! Hummm, I wonder what caused CO2 in the last ice age.

I laugh at their puny efforts to cross the Zone of Death into my house.


That's just me, of course.

Rodents. Bugs. Spiders. Bugs. Rodents. Reptiles. Flying roaches. Bats.

None of these can make it?

I'm impressed.

Does the Zone of Death depend on the garage door being closed?

Hey. I'm sure it's closed as it should be most of the time.

What's the worst that could happen?

I'm sure everything will be fine. :)
