    I spoke to relatives in Europe this weekend. Austria has so much snow people had trouble getting to the ski areas.

    I live about 10km from Austrian border. Hardly any snow here. And it’s been miserable all winter long.
    The closest Austrian ski area is less than 200 km from here and still they only have max 30 cm of snow cover (mostly technical snow).
    I’m not trolling, just trying to remind, that Europe is not one small spot so we may have quite different weather…

    I’m living in Belgium. No snow here, and no frost either. Is it unusual? No! I’ve seen it time and again, with bitter cold coming here in February or March. But, the truth is that it is very mild here since the beginning of winter.

    I am experiencing the coldest Winter in 25 years, and have seen more snowy days than I have seen in 30 years. All of you who are enjoying mild conditions, enjoy them while they last, and hope that global warming returns.

      Hello Gator,
      I’m not jealous of the cold you experience in the States. The three last winter, WE froze and WE had lots of snow. Do you like your cold winter? You may keep your cold winter! :o)

    Drought in California nothing compared to past
    http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/02/west-coast-track-worst-drought-500-years.html

    “Through studies of tree rings, sediment and other natural evidence, researchers have documented multiple droughts in California that lasted 10 or 20 years in a row during the past 1,000 years — compared to the mere three-year duration of the current dry spell. The two most severe megadroughts make the Dust Bowl of the 1930s look tame: a 240-year-long drought that started in 850 and, 50 years after the conclusion of that one, another that stretched at least 180 years.”

    Reporters are weird. She really did say ‘blanketed by flurries
    That’s like calling weeks of this a ‘cold snap’. What’s the matter with them?

    Greenland Once a Viking Paradise
    http://www.thunderbolts.info/wp/2014/02/05/greenland-once-a-viking-paradise/

    “The Little Ice Age followed a period known as the “Medieval Maximum” that is dated to between 900 AD – 1280 AD, which copious records reveal was much warmer than modern times. For instance, grapevines grew in the area of today’s shivering Wales! This was generally a period of prosperity for civilizations. There was a large increase in world population and an era of colonial expansion. During the years 800 AD – 1200 AD, Greenland and Iceland were settled by the Vikings. The “Medieval Warm Period” allowed this great migration to flourish. Drift ice at later dates posed the greatest hazard to sailors but reports of drift ice in old records do not appear until the thirteenth century.

    Greenland was settled when Eric Asvaldsson was banished from Iceland for killing two men. He converted his misfortune into the foundation of a new colony. The initial settlement was on a deep fiord on the south-western coast (next to today’s arctic Canada). Conditions were similar to Iceland, which was itself enjoying a warm temperate climate at that time. Chroniclers even mention swimming in Greenland’s Fjords! Totally impossible today.

    The bones of cattle, sheep, pigs and goats collected from archaeological sites reveal the existence of large farms with large productive pastures in what is now often snow covered wasteland.”
