Normally the Gulf Coast gets slammed by lots of tropical storms and hurricanes which have the ability to end a drought in about 12 hours. Global warming was supposed to produce more and stronger tropical storms, but instead all that trapped heat got used up making record cold and snow.
It takes a lot of heat to make record snow and cold, and there just isn’t enough heat left over to make a decent tropical storm. However, this is all due to aerosols from the Won Ton factory in Shanghai.
