We've certainly seen those inversions over there, Gene. When my parents lived near Paonia, we'd go down to GJ to shop -- and discover incredible heat in the summer, incredible cold in the winter.

Today we had a gorgeous 75 degree day with plenty of Sunshine. I do not miss the cold and snow at all.

OK, it's possible to be out in -30˚ F without hat and gloves or -30˚ C (-22˚ F), but why? I've done it for short periods of time, but try really hard not to because it hurts. I guess during winter in Yellowknife there's much to do but drink and watch water turn into ice crystals (not evaporate). OK, I'm being snarky but it's the best I can do on a Saturday night. And Yellowknife is a cool place to go (in the summer).

I was going to whine about -2, but I guess I'll just keep quiet.

It's indirect: Global warming -> climate change -> your cold weather.

But it's not that way for all. Here it runs something like this:

Global warming -> climate change -> unseasonably warm, very dry.

In any event, when it comes to feeling it on your skin, global warming is itself ultimately quite slight (< 2 degrees F). If there were no climate change involved, you would probably not even notice it, but the climate notices this change a lot (as you have discovered).

We need a bit of that Global Warming here today! It's -35C with the windchill!!

To give you a hint how cold that is, Fahrenheit and Celsius are the same at -40.
