    Well, I just read congressional testimony that said extreme weather events are cause by CO2. And warming. And republicans. And bad guys. And polar bear haters.
    And, I like polar bears. Alot!!

    That 1899 cold spell might have been the most severe/most widespread in American history, for example 0 (F) cold accompanied by snow in Augusta, GA, heavy snow in DC accompanied by single digit temps and winds up to 50 mph that left 15 foot snow drifts.

  3. It must have been so hot in the world to make cold like this happen.

    Go figure!
    A few months later we see this:
    “INTENSE HEAT.
    The heat wave, which during June laid people in New York and other parts of America prostrate, now prevails in England.”
