  1. I lived in Rovaniemi for several months in 1973. It’s difficult to imagine snow on the ground at Midsummer.

  2. How about sending some of that snow this way? Where is the ice age when you need it?

    Today’s high will be 93 (34C), and the lowest it got over night was 71 (23C). Currently 84% humidity with little to no wind. And no relief in sight for at least 5 days. In fact, it’s supposed to get hotter.

    Come on, La Nina!

  3. well father xmas can get a head start on xmas this year 😉
    bet quite a few hikers and campers are feeling pretty cold and peeved,
    there went their summer holiday!

  4. Newest AGWER saying, it always gets cold after it’s been hot. So it’s still our fault and an ice age would be caused by agw. Morons- they must take us as all being in the us. education system .
