Brutal cold seizes northeast U.S., shattering record lows

(Reuters) – A dangerous combination of record-setting cold temperatures and powerful winds buffeted the northeastern United States on Saturday, creating life-threatening conditions and causing the death of an infant in Massachusetts.

New Hampshire’s Mount Washington overnight recorded a wind chill – a measure of how the combined effect of air and wind feels to the skin – of minus 108 degrees Fahrenheit (-78°Celsius), which appeared to be the lowest ever in the United States. The air temperature at the peak reached minus 47 degrees F (-44 C), with winds gusting near 100 miles per hour (160 kilometers per hour), according to the Mount Washington Observatory. more

  1. My brother-in-law will patiently explain how this is all caused by global warming……. whatever!

  2. Yesterday it was colder, minus 16, I don’t what I’d do if not for global warming. Today another heat wave has struck, 12 degrees, no signs of sun shine yet at 4:55 AM, here in dark downtown Chatham Center NY. Pray for us over taxed slaves who can’t find coal. Did I mention my car wouldn’t start without help.

  3. One of the paradoxes of Globaloney Warming is that it causes the Earth to freeze.
    See, all the heat produced by the Sun is sucked into the bottom of the Indian Ocean, leaving nothing but cold for the NE United States.

    At least, that’s the way the Globaloney Warming Hoaxers explain it.
    It’s all bullshit, of course, since convection causes warmer fluids (less dense) to rise, not to settle.
    But ignorance is rampant in the United States, and beyond, so these lying maggots get away with this outrageous bullshit. The gov’t, media, and Academia are paid to lie, so that is what they do – and they repeat the lie, ad nauseam, until (they hope) the lie becomes fact – which, of course, can never happen, regardless of how well the lie is absorbed – shit remains shit regardless of how often you are told that shit is chocolate – or how many ignorant maggots eat shit and swear it tastes like chocolate.

  4. Wait until they find out that melting poles doesn’t mean more heat but a coming ice age. It is caused by more fresh water changing the heat transport mechanism called the North Atlantic Oscillation. Fortunately, the pole shift will probably happen long before the failing oscillation can trigger an ice age, then all bets are off. Cheers.

  5. -12 the night before last with wind chills between -37 & -45.
    Thankful for our oil heat in the house and propane over the garage. People with heat pumps weren’t as happy. Those things struggle in really cold weather.
    Didn’t see any electric cars out and about either.
    Or Africans.
    Heat wave today. 40 by the afternoon.

  6. Otherwise known as Winter anywhere else.
    Besides, nobody lives at Mt. Washington.
    Nobody used to live at the airport, either, until this past December…

  7. If you’re cold, put on a HAT. Make sure it’s BIG enough to not restrict circulation. FUR is an excellent insulator.

  8. The Beaufort Gyre and it’s impact on the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Current is looming, in fact, may have already started. Research and prepare.

  9. I spoke to an old Air Force buddy in PA yesterday. He said it was cold there. Then, he said it was always this cold in the winter when he was a kid.
