    JASON NICHOLSposted 6 years ago

    Why is that suddenly in each and every part of the world is freezing like never before? The scientest had predectied that the temp will increase in south and fall in north. But these day's the temp is increasing day by day and it's snowing too!

    Its freezing and snowing in the whole of america! Schools, colleges, offices all are closed. You can't see a thing in this dense fog! In britian and england its snowing and the temp is below minus 5 degree and decreasing! Last year the temp was normal and increasing little then normal and ice at the north and south poles were melting and now we are freezing!

    How are you deling with this? Can you tell us some tips? What is the temp at your place?

      We've had the coldest days since records began I think, certainly the worst in 40 years.

      I live on the West Coast of Scotland and normally we get that lovely Gulf Stream from across the Atlantic which keeps the temperature up just a little bit. But I think the Americans and/or Mexicans are holding onto it this winter. LOL.

      How do I survive? Porridge for breakfast (I'm not kiddin, I really do eat porridge now) and boil up a large pot of soup every week.

      The only reason people think this is not the norm, is because weather is reported form more sources than it was 50 years ago. Go back 50 years, do you think someone living in New York City would care what the weather is like in Austrailia or in Africa? Today you can get that information in a matter of seconds over the internet, where as 50 years ago you wouldn't even hear about it. Unless it was a devastating hurricane or something like that.

      People who keep an eye on the weather have all kinds of theories about how the earth's climate is changing, and they argue with each other about it just as much as people fight over which religion is accurate. Nobody is ever going to be 100 percent right when it comes to the weather.

      I'll bet if they do some searching through records they would find a colder day then the one that they currently claim is the most cold, hot, dry or most rainy on record. The only reason they can make so many claims on recent weather is because they have more access to weather records than ever before. If they went back 200 years, do you think they would find the amount of info they have today?

      I think the whole global warming thing is a joke. If the earth has been around for millions of years, how can scientists believe they can predict anything, on just a few centuries of  weather records. It would be different if they could just get 1 day 100 percent right. They can't even do that.

      I believe we have reached a tipping point in our climate. Not a told you sort of thing at all but I wrote about this 4 years or so ago on my MySpace blog.
      Global warming actually will cause us to enter into an ice-age, which I believe we are now seeing the start of.
      Also, there is a magnetic pole shift occurring. Latest news and studies reaffirms this.
      The birds and fish dying in mass could be caused by both - off the hook weather changes and possibly navigation problems because of the electro-magnetic changes (birds are very sensitive and use magnetics for navigating) Evidence of this are our compasses are off. Just last week Tampa Bay airport had to renumber their runways because of the magnetic pole shift.
      Not to plug my own hubs but they are relevant to this post and good reading for those pondering these changes:
      I also believe that we could see abrupt climate change happening:

    luckily I live far enough south that the freezing temps are not too often, but we did have frost a couple of weeks ago.

    today is it 68 F, rainy, with a flock of birds in the yard.

                Aww sorry you feel the cold though ,bet yer like my sis ,feet like blocks of frozen ice.

                Gosh just had a memory flash ( better than those 'power surges' lol. I was one of four little girls and for a time we shared a large double bed. Sometimes we topped an tailed ,sometimes 'spooned' and sometimes whoever got outta the bath first. Anyway we kept so warm and cosy and shared many a tale or two.
                Moral of the story though.

    I know sometimes the thought of exercise when it's cold doesn't sound appealing, but it does help keep your internal body thermostat functioning well.
    even if you don't or can't go outside, some simple exercises inside will help keep you warm. moving around, if you have one of those big exercise balls, you can sit and jump while watching a movie.. or jog in place, do some stretching to keep flexible.

      You're right. I was cold all day, but I went swimming about an hour ago, and now I'm feeling quite warm (swimming was actually the last thing I wanted to do in this weather, but it worked).

      rebekah, Great idea. I exercise on a stationary bike at least 3 times a week.

  6. rebekahELLE profile image90
    rebekahELLEposted 6 years ago

    I live where it's warm for most of the year, but even when it's cold outside I take brisk walks and keep moving as much as possible.

    Many years ago, when I lived up north, I used to jog daily.
    now I don't jog, but still am very active.

    camlo, I hope you were swimming indoors?  I have a pool, but it's not heated, so no way am I going in the pool during the winter. But I do agree, it's great exercise!

    one of my friends has one of those snugglies, she loves it.

      camloposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      Oh yes, it was a heated, indoor pool. It wasn't my idea, but a good one. We might go again tomorrow evening if there's time.

    I don't know if it is pollution of a big city or just a humidity issue but in Toronto even -8C feels like -20 with all that cold wind blowing from the Lake Ontario. The only solution - lots of good calories to eat, warm clothing and good night sleep. By the way I still cannot shake off my bad cold I was complaining last week, though I am back to work, I feel pretty lousy yet.

    its not snowing here which is good, they have just issued rain warnings- good job I live on the top of a hill. How do we cope? better than before- life just goes on. Bought a pair of sheepskin lined boots, thick coat and get on with it. Funny enough I have found we dont have the heating on quite so much on warmer days it is as if our appreciation of what is cold has changed

      I live the closest to work so I'm usually the one who has to fill in for everyone else who can't make it.   Luckily they just shut the whole restuarant down monday because my car was buried.  I even got to call it a personal day so no short check.
      We ran out to take pictures of the snow  in the middle of the night,  glad I didn't ruin my boots.  Neither of us slept all that night either lol

    Currently in this part of the world, Melbourne, Australia, one of the coolest starts to summer for many years and one of the wettest in decades.

    For eg, by the 3rd December we already got the monthly average fall. Average temperature has been down 6 degrees celsius, for the month.

      I also read about the disaterous floods in Australia due to the heavy rainfall.  I garantee you that you may be feeling very cold right now!
      Here in miami it's chilling cold! The water's cold so you can't even swim. I am shiverring and so i am not gonna step out of the house.
      I hope that the temp should increase at least 15 degree or so in austrila. So let's hope for the best!
