    Change 'these' to 'some' and I will say indeed.

    We do have a PI forum, you know.

If I remember my high school science class on this topic, the idea of global warming doesn't mean the warming of our surface temp, but rather imbalances of heat in the planet's atmosphere - which can cause certain areas of the planet to see more than normal extremes in temps - both rising temps and decreasing temps. I certainly am not an expert by any means. But I do remember that much.
    Actually, "global warming" is a term that does refer to the warming of the near surface air (and water) temperatures -- but what many people seem to overlook is the "global" part of the term -- it refers to the average temperature of the planet, rather than in localized regions. One predicted effect of this trend of global warming is more extreme weather events (including more extreme highs and lows). "Climate change" probably makes more sense to use because of those many who focus on any extreme of cold weather as somehow negating the fact that the global average temperatures have been increasing at an unprecedented rate in the past century. And that is all that I have to say about global warming in this non-PI thread.

One good thing is that I get to take the whole week off.

    It's still snowing in Dallas as I type this. Well, mostly ice. It's pretty in the least.
    I've lived here all my life and I've never heard of school being closed for 4 days due to weather! Wow!
