I have always wondered why, when we get a cold blast of air here in the northeast, they refer to it as an Alberta Clipper. It's as if Alberta is the coldest spot on earth. And what about the people that live there year round?

As you can see I have to much time on my hands, (or did I just forget to do something)?

Tony, the Alberta , Chamber of Commerce , has applied pressure on the Canadian Weather Channel to drop the use of the clipper term; they have complied and started using " Polar Vortex ". As funds are available , the C-of-C will , lobby the US forecasters to adopt the term too.

And it seems I have too much time on my hands too.

EDIT: All that being said ; If you were to talk to oil patch workers in Fort McMurray AB , they will tell you , it is the coldest place on earth. But most will admit to never having worked in Antarctica.

During the Great Ice Age, where we live was under 20 feet of ice and the ice sheet stretched all the way south to the Columbia River. Today we're in the high 60s F and might see low 80s over the weekend.

It must've been all the dinosaur farting that caused the climate change then, since there were no humans around in cars.

Yup... it happens... just like the other stuff.

All the talk about glaciation? Why just last year they were bemoaning the shrinkage of the ice and all in Greenland I believe? I don't think it is new for the planet...
I also am fond of saying if we ate what we feed the earth, we'd be belching and farting too..(volcanoes, earthquakes, etc.)

I rarely get involved with conspiracy theories but my nephew sent me this. Have a look at this and make up your own mind.

Today in Anacortes, it reached 69F, sunny blue skies, a 15-knot wind out of the NW. The weather folks are predicting 7 more days of warm sunny weather - we might make 78 or so later in the week.

It's been like that all season. We only had one day last winter when it snowed and it was all gone by the next morning.

The downside is that we get a lot of "British" days in fall and winter. 800' scattered, 1500' overcast, 50 degrees F, rain and fog. The ferries are blowing their whistles every time they come into the terminal, about a half mile from our house.

After about 45 days of that, folks are jumping off their balconies. As ex-pat Brits, it doesn't bother us - that's how it was when we were kids in Lancashire!

Yeah, the "chemtrail" conspiracy is right up there with Dr Strangelove:
