OMG, it is Halloween... but it was freaking 83F here today.  Even now, at 5:30p, it is 81 and 67% humidity.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/technology/ice-ages

The problem is that the ice is MELTING. Do you understand that? MELTING. What ice is there is rising as the ocean water levels increase.

A quote from Faux News.

"Upside-down "rivers" of warm ocean water may be one of the causes of Antarctica's ice shelves breaking up, leading to a rise in sea levels. A new study suggests that, in the past, increases in Antarctic sea ice in colder climates may have contributed to ice ages."

Read that a couple of times, maybe it'll sink in. The sentence is referring to TWO very different events. The ice is melting, got it?

We had at least 8" of snow here yesterday.

I had to read the damn water meters in that crap! (I'm the meter reader in our lil town) I turned in my resignation yesterday and gave them three months to find someone else to do the job.

Hey Conrad,

Where in N Illinois are you?

I grew up is S Illinois (Newton) and lived in Rockford from '91-'98. Still go back to Rockford a week each summer to visit friends. Might have to swing by & say "Hi" & buy you a beer.

Who said I was questioning anything about the article or the study described?  I merely showed where the article had been posted somewhere that was NOT Fox News.   Breathe deep!!!

I live 30 miles or so south of Rockford. Near the DeKalb area. I retired from NIU there.

What happened to the censoring software on this site that is suppose to replace four letter words like the title of this thread with “****”?

Joking aside, why is ther such a large percentage of active members on this site from the same 2 states... Illinois and Virginia? I actually check both states. Grew up in Illinois and live in Virginia. Most of my family is still in central IL so I go back for visits, but do my best to avoid winter visits there!

Winter here is a joke. First forecast of snow and everyone freaks out. Never seen a response like I’ve seen here to the possibility of snow, despite if we actually get any or not.
