Uh…the rest of the country is suffering in record heat conditions. No one is laughing, except at you.

The rest of the country is not laughing at California because of the cold weather; the rest of the country is laughing at California for taxing its citizens to the point that those who have the ability to leave the state are doing just that. The icing on the cake is when California recently voted to increase its taxes. Question: who would vote to increase their own taxes? Answer: nobody who actually pays taxes. Figure it out. I’m sad because I would love to once again live in San Diego. I moved to Hawaii because it’s cheaper to live here. Believe it.

Spent the day at California Adventure, that’s right next to Disneyland. I usually wear shorts, sandals, and a t-shirt 24/7. I was bundled up today, long pants, jacket, wool beanie, all day and didn’t regret it for a minute. This winter is much colder than normal for sure. #somuchforglobalwarming

Oh, what can you really say to the simple one track minded people? So cal grows a massive amount of food, that’s responsible for feeding the nation. Because of the warmer weather, we grow crops….. So when the crops die now… And months down the road when the price on your food, where ever you live goes up. Because of supply and demand. You will be the ones bitching and complaining about food costs. So,,,,,,,,,,, we tend to worry about are “cold weather”

This helps regulations and the Obama administration in stopping just about anything that moves including the economy. This is a liberal win and they will thank the cold and snow Gods right after they are finished admiring themselves in the mirror.

How stupid. We get these temps for three weeks every year in SoCal. Perhaps three times during this time we get temps lower than freezing.
We know it’s coming and we cover the garden. The rest of the year we have 78 and sunny in San Diego.

You will now hear from the Global Warning group that it would have been a lot colder because of global warning.

It isn’t just California – It is also cold in Phoenix also and it has bee below normal all winter. The normal high is 65 this time of year but the high has been below 60 for the past month except for one day. Last night the temperature dropped below freezing in Chandler. Maybe this will shut those global warming alarmists up, but I doubt it.

What the heck is wrong with everyone…..its January..its winter..this is Not news. Sick to death of all these fools who pretend to be reporters…with no science behind anything they write. I realize all reporters are told in college that the public is stupid and you the report is much smarter….that is not the case today. Yes..48% of the population are too busy to be informed..but the rest of us are not. Its cold everywhere this time of year, period.

Solar activity and small, doubtful anthropogenic contributions to a global warming trend is extending the present interglacial period. Within a long-term ice age, individual pulses of cold climate are termed “glacial periods” (or alternatively “glacials” or “glaciations” or colloquially as “ice age”), and intermittent warm periods are called “interglacials”. Glaciologically, ice age implies the presence of extensive ice sheets in the northern and southern hemispheres. We are still in an ice age that began 2.6 million years ago at the start of the Pleistocene epoch, because the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets still exist. (Wikipedia)

Epic Cold….Your kidding?

Ca has stood up to a lot worse including the siberian express but they will probably go in the tank or worse thanks to the political clowns that run the state and the masturbating monkees in the legislature…I cannot believe how these taxpayers liked being fiscally raped…

LOL record heat? Sounds like Lovett worships at the Church of Her Lady of the Manmade-Global-Warming/Climate Change/Magnetic Pole Flip/Hale Bopp and Other Assorted Crazies.

Early snows in Ca, NV, as well as the midwest and Northeast. Sounds like a regular old winter to me.
