where i live it's Extreme cold now, and Extreme cold forecast Jan 1, 2018, both in terms of temperature AND wind chill. It's extremely cold and windy.

kinda reminds me of the winters of the 70's, where there was a lot of snow.

the forecasters are saying that it might be the coldest Jan 1 in over 150+ years of record keeping. affraid

for the most part i'm staying indoors, and i only drive when i have to.

in the back of my mind i'm wondering about all the warnings over global warming

whether the global warming we have experienced is due to the sun, and that the sun might possibly be entering in a cycle that will result in future cooling.

the climate of the future i see is open ended. yes we can have global warming. but it's also possible we will enter a mini- ice age, and if that is what actually happens, then all the current alarmists will look like chicken little who are running around saying the sky is falling

personally i prefer mild winters, i sometimes wish i could live in Florida, though i don't want to deal with hurricanes. affraid

if global warming does happen it means more money spent on air conditioning. i'm thinking of painting my house white to reflect solar heat.

but if we enter a ice age, well right now i can't begin to imagine what my gas bill will look like affraid

the news media reports are saying this current arctic cold air is breaking records not only where i live but in New York and Delaware and Canada.

here's a news bit

'Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming ...
In-Depth-Daily Mail-Dec 28, 2017


one short term plan I had was to paint my house white to reflect summer heat and sun and i even considered installing solar cells



but with the current cold I'm having second thoughts. white is not my favorite house color, blue is. my preference would be blue with white or grey accents, but it gets really hot and sunny during the summer

the other reservation i have is that white painted houses show dirt very easily, whereas earth tone grey and light brown does a better job hiding dirt, at the expense of being insanely hot to touch during the summer.

I like the idea of moving to Florida but wow, they have hurricanes there. something i have no experience with.

energy costs - is it going to cost me more to pay for gas heat during the winter or electricity during the summer for AC?

some scientists are claiming their models predict the sun will enter a more quiescent phase, which is termed maunder minimum, which if true, could mean much colder temperatures in the future, a mini ice age.

happy new year
