4. My husband said this morning:

"I should be able to walk out on the front porch and simultaneously hear the ocean and feel 17 degree temperatures. Those two things just don't go together."

11. OMG! No, we don't have that. Thank goodness. How scary!

We did get 1 inch of snow back in 2010. Snow on the beach looks amazing.

5. I still want to know why the hell I'm supposed to be comfy

with the furnace at 68° in the winter but the AC at 78° in the summer.

6. During the Carter years the mantra was something like, "Set the thermostat to a low of 68 and...

... a high of 78." One comic said, "That's what I do, 68 in the Summer and 78 in the Winter"...

15. The map shows why liberals call record setting heat waves "Global Warming "in the summer ...

but often refer to the phenomenon as "Global Climate Change"in the winter.

16. ah yes, making world wide extrapolations on the basis of

about 1 1/2 % of the earth's surface area again.

Why am I not impressed by the precision of the method or the rigor of the debate?

20. Yes, indeed.

And I had a bacon cheeseburger last night, so there's no such thing as a hunger crisis.

When people don't get something this basic, they sure aren't ready to deal with science.

26. Maybe God has it in for us.

Don't know about right now, but I do know that world wide, on average, 2014 was the warmest year ever--despite below average temperatures in much of the 48 contiguous states for much of the year.

5 1/2 inches of snow.

23. Thursday's flurries set Florida record

Snow-way! Call it a miracle! Snow danced over the streets of Jacksonville Thursday for the first time in five years and tied the record for the day of a trace set 57 years ago.

Granted it's not a Buffalo type record where the only way of escape out of your house after a snow event is out the second story window. But this is Florida and any flurry, whether one or a dozen is a BIG deal.

Snow is exceedingly rare in these parts. It was enough to drive adults and kids alike from high rise offices downtown and out of schools to witness this "great white rain," a term coined by explorer's through this area in the late 1700s when snow fell over the region, according to meteorologist-emeritus George Winterling, that was falling from the sky.

So how rare is snow in Jacksonville really? According to NWS meteorologist David Shuler, unofficially Jacksonville has recorded 18 winters since 1910 with at least one trace snowfall event. This only accounts for the months of December, January and February. Not November or March. Therefore the number of events may be a bit higher if those two months are accounted for. According to meteorologist Jason Hess, only three snowfalls have actually accumulated officially in Jacksonville in 103 years (1956, 1986 and 1989) with the greatest 24 hour accumulation of 1.9 inches in February 1899 -- before records officially began.
