A few weeks ago I had a rotten cold, so I stayed home and spent some time watching TV. Something I usually don't do, except for the odd HGTV show. Well I watched a show on the history channel about the mini ice age which occurred between 1400 - 1800, and it was just fascinating. One of the topics they brought up was, what scientists now think might have been responsible for the mini ice age. One theory was that the melting glaciers, yes the glaciers were melting because of the warmer than average world temperatures, go figure, dumped so much fresh cold water into the ocean that one of the major ocean currents, became much colder than usual. Interesting.
The next theory was that there were five volcanoes in a five year period. What are we up to now, three.
Then I switched to the weather channel and they said that one reason for our hideous winter is that the same ocean current was a few degrees colder than usual which was causing a colder and wetter than normal winter. Oh jump for joy.
Well all I can say, is that I for one do not want a 110 degree summer. If we're going to have these nasty winters, the least that the angry weather gods could do is let us have a nice summer.
