    Will Canada see its first white Christmas since '71?

    The first day of winter brought wind-chill warnings, snow and a bevy of storms to cities across Canada on Sunday, potentially laying the groundwork for the first cross-country white Christmas in nearly four decades.

    Environment Canada senior climatologist David Phillips told CTV Newsnet that "it looks like a very good chance" it will be a white Christmas for all parts of Canada for the first time since 1971.

    It's been an early and severe winter throughout North America. When it snows in Houston, New Orleans, and Las Vegas in December, you know the more northern areas of the continent are getting pounded.

    Will it continue for the remainder of the winter? Who knows, we'll all have to wait and see.

    Feel free to post your favorite winter weather stories here.

    Merry Christmas!

    Winter truly arrived in Beijing yesterday with the highest temperature of the day down to minus 8.8 ℃. Media reports say it was "the coldest day in December in the last 57 years."

    Strong wind ripped off part of the metal roof of a university's gymnasium and the thermal insulation layer of a hotel in Beijing. It also blew away a man who was mending his own roof in Shijingshan District. The man landed on the top of a 15 meter-high tree and was rescued by firefighters (see front page image).

    According to Sun Jisong, a meteorologist from the Beijing Meteorological Bureau, the cold weather will not last and the temperature is going to rise to above zero in the coming days.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    This should be in *Breaking News*, not in this forum.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Is it any surprise it would be a lib that tries to play Editor in Chief. It's the natural penchant of the Marxist. To control the flow of information. Why would this be?

    I sense an annoyed Lib because the GW template seems to be melting on a world wide scale.

    Zimmer,

    To be fair, Middleground did not suggest that the message could not be posted. She only suggested that it belonged in breaking news not the Environment and climate subforum.

    Climate is long-term in nature. Weather deals with individual events. A specific weather event does not, by itself, offer insight into how the climate is evolving, just as a large daily gain or loss in the stock market does not determine whether or not one is in a Bear or Bull market, much less whether things are shifting. Only a long series of events sheds such insight into such matters.

    Unless I am mistaken--and she can correct me if I am--that's what I believe Middleground meant. She did not suggest that one could or could not debate climate change. She did not argue for material concerning prospects for the first white Christmas in all of Canada since 1971 to be excluded from DP's discussions and debates.

    You're not only smart and eloquent, you're a mind reader too.

    Damn you, Mr. Sutherland!

    On another note, but on topic, Ottawa came within a few centimeters of breaking the all-time record snowfall last year. The record year? It happened in 1971.

    That's the second post I've read of yours where you misread the post you reply to and then go off on an anti-liberal anti whatever takes your fancy rant.

    Here is the other one - that time around you accused the poster you misread of being a reporter "for SNL? Or for Der Spiegel?"

    I'd get someone to double check future posts before you press the "submit" button if I were you - especially if you're going to go off on a rant...

    If it were 32 degrees in Miami on the fouth of July for 5-10 years consecutively, yeah, that would be worrisome.

    Two years ago, it about 61 degrees on Xmas day in Ottawa, one of the coldest (if not, THE coldest) capitals in the world. I remember taking pictures, as I had annuals still alive and well, and had pondered whether I should have mowed my lawn before heading to my folks house for dinner. I didn't start no alarmist thread here at DP, or anywhere else. I simply enjoyed the weather that I termed freaky.

    So now, Mr Vicchio, do you understand the logic?
