  1. We knew this was coming from our science classes in the 60’s. this was real science, not political science. No one should be surprised.

  2. if el nino didn’t do a switcheroo on itself this year, that zero degrees might be parking itself on the white house front lawn.

    luckily for them it did because the only weather that matters is within the DC beltway just like every other thing.

  3. Has anyone told the US sports authorities that outdoor football in the Northern Midwest in January is a bit iffy?!

  4. If these games are still around in 70 years from now, then kids watching the game this Sunday in Minneapolis will still know what sub-zero temps feel like by then!
