Well, as always I'm prepared for the winter. I have just put on my studless snow tires on my car, and if there's going to be more snow/ice than a normal winter, I have my studded tires ready. If the studded tires isn't enough, I even have snow chains.

Gimme all you can throw at me Mr winter, you will not stop me from using my car.

Well at least the Glaciers are in retreat, otherwise the ice would grind everything ahead of it that didn't move to powder...

To me that is a sad thing Vic. Think Yosemite and Ansel Adams.

Yeah I know, considering what I know, those retreating glaciers once their gone the rivers that are glacier dependent will dry up...

And all that ice will join the sea. You could end up with ocean front property after all.

Nah, I'd still be pretty far, Oh It would be closer, the Gulf of California would invade the Salton Sea at last, but I think that would be it, maybe.

I really rather like the snow. I grew up in Texas where summer was the best 11 months of the year; a bit of snow if always a fun change of perspective.

We never get a white Christmas over here:(


We have snow every 6 to 8 years on christmas.
But i only have to drive 20 miles to be able to skiing each winter.




We don't have ski resorts in Belgium. We can go langlaufing in the Ardens though. (IF it snows)But langlaufen isn't that much fun, I like skiing better.

I used to go uphill in the Dolomiti region with plastic skins under my cross country skis, in silence and without having to pay for your cable or sessellift . Then I took away the skins and skied down. But you have to know how to make a good snowplough, christiania is not possible.

If we melt Greenland, sea levels rise about 10 meters (30 to 35 feet).

If we succeed in melting the antarctic ice cap, sea levels rise a further 100 meters...

That's good. It will stop heavy rain and flooding, as we would already be thee.

OTOH, if the Gulf Stream stops, and then Europee and North America move to a temperature drop, we could, very quickly, see a new Ice Age form. This would possibly take between 1 and 2 thousand years, and sea levels would drop 300 metres.

Bring back Global Dimming, which will happen if a few volcanoes blow.

one or two kitchen tools........

No fair Angela, I was a single father for 12 years, and
there are few kitchen tools I don’t know about.

Good day for a needle day.

That apple peeler looks new. I did not know that they still made those.


I know this is not snow related, but we seem to have a diverging thread here and I have decided to take the road less traveled.

Night before last I took on Uli's challenge to see if I could stump Eric with some mystifying kitchen equipment. Always up for a good game, Eric allowed me three entries. Now Eric routinely sees groceries go into the kitchen and he routinely sees food come out of it. I had always presumed that Ol' Pookers did not pay much attention to what actually went on between those two steps. A little test of three potentially mystifying kitchen objects proved me wrong, wrong, wrong!!!

Just for the record, I immediately ruled out presentation of a few objects that might have stumped other people. A cherry pitter, for example, would have been a good entry, but Eric loves homemade cherry pie and one of my cousins has a sour cherry tree in her yard. To hasten the arrival of pie in the spring, Eric has actually used this device himself a few times!


A bench scraper I also ruled out. I've been on a bread making kick (foccacia!!!) lately, so I figured he might have some sort of associative memory triggers from having seen this tool recently on the counter or in the sink.



This was my first entry:

It is a Krinkle Cutter for making fancy cut vegetables or krinkle cut fries. I have only used it once or twice and I was disappointed that Eric guessed its use so quickly.

My second entry nearly stumped him:

I showed him a melon v-cutter, but one that did not have a melon baller on the end. Without the melon baller, the tool looks like something Norman Bates would use, and it took Ol' Pookers quite some time before he guessed its function... but guess it he did.

My third entry was an apple corer:

He guessed it right away, even though I typically just use a paring knife to process apples. I only use the corer for baked apples, which I rarely make because Eric hates them.

And so Uli-belle, the answer is "no". Eric cannot be stumped!

Greenland is already melting, on land, Antarctica is increasing it's sea ice from what I've read, so no 400' sea rise for the moment, 10' could make some hills into islands, eventually, maybe. Greenland has warm land near it, Antarctica just has cold southern ocean around it...

I have a hard time taking snow as a laughing matter. Here is a picture from my home town, winter of 2010. The rectangular lumps are cars and trucks.
