    The Polar Vortex tried to leave town earlier,
    but it got stuck in traffic on the George Washington Bridge.

    That goes for brass monkeys as well.

    Meanwhile, in Scandinavia, there’s almost no snow, bears are coming out of hibernation, birds are flying north, and flowers are blooming. I think the earth must have shifted 90 degrees, with Florida getting an Arctic climate and the Arctic getting a Florida climate.

    See, and some of you thought it was silly to get tattoos back there. But next time get bar codes, not butterflies.

    How about a compromise? Bar codes in the shape of butterflies!

    Getting back to normal here in the north as well.
    Yesterday was +18 and this morning came in at -36
    I remember this happening every year or so as a child, storms in the gulf would squeeze all our cold south and we would have the heat.
    We loved it and did not worry about what the cold was doing, although once in the sixties Florida went below freezing and a lot of the state was immobilized due to non starting cars.
    Funny the things that stick in the memory 50 years later.
    The chinooks happen several time per year now and the cold seems to be more common in the states as well.

    Yes, and then there was that one day in Florida, 1986, where it was cold enough to freeze an O-Ring, which entirely changed the American space program.

    While a million fruit bats died of the heat in Queensland, US deniers claimed the vortex proved warming was a hoax.

    I know that. Each species can recover what was
    frozen off.

    You know much that is not so.

    Terrible tragedy I wish had not happened. To me, it appears that the tragedy has helped throw the baby out with the bath water. After that failure, and one over Texas they have closed down the whole program. Imagine what our world would be like if after the first fatal automobile collision laws were created to prevent automobiles. Sort of like trying to shut down Social Security, PPACA, or anything that helps poor, sick or oppressed Americans.

    @Michael wme

    The best explanation I heard was that the polar vortex normally just spins around the Arctic and doesn’t take up a lot of the planet’s surface area. But every now and then it’s like a yarmulke that slips down over one eye. That typically means that all the warm air that normally WOULD have been in that region gets displaced somewhere else.
