— A bitter chill has settled in across the eastern half of the country, threatening crops, closing schools and making Charleston, S.C., feel more like New York City.

Record snows were reported over the weekend in Vermont, and farmers in Florida scrambled Monday to save strawberries and tomatoes.

The deep freeze will last for at least the rest of the week. The National Weather Service said the mercury could fall below zero in St. Louis later this week for the first time since 1999.

In Burlington, Vt., a weekend snowstorm dumped more than 33 inches, breaking a single-storm record of nearly 30 inches set in 1969.

Global warming predicts extra cold temperatures.... Global warming can't be decided on short term conditions... blah, blah, blah, blather, blather, blather....

What is short term?

Is 30 years short term compared to 4.5 BILLION years? Is 30 years short term even compared to 6000 years?

What is long enough to determine global warming? Who gets to decide? Who gets to pick those carefully selected years?

What would it take before it is decided global warming is not happening?
