Breaking News....

According to the British newspapers, March wasn't the coldest March in half a century.  It was the coldest in over 100 years.

It's kind of ironic, actually.  Britain is on about the same latitude as Calgary and Moscow,  but the jet stream warms it to its usual temperate climate.  Now the oceans are warming  up, which is melting the polar ice cap. This pushes the jet stream farther south, making Britain colder.

I am amazed to think that the UK is on the same latitude as Moscow and dread thinking that they might lose the buffering gulf stream.
