Default Re: The Polar Vortex returns next week

For as long as I can remember this sort of weather phenomenon was called an "Alberta Clipper" or was simply described as a dip in the jet stream typical of a winter weather pattern in the Northern Hemisphere.

But I guess "Alberta Clipper" didn't sound menacing enough and so we now have the Polar Vortex (I'll bet they wish they could somehow work Bruce Willis into this too).

BTW, the "Polar Vortex" was first identified 150 years ago and there have been countless scientific papers written about it, so it's certainly nothing new.

Much ado about nothing.

Left Creates "Polar Vortex" to Make You Think Winter is Caused by Global Warming

Do you know what the polar vortex is? Have you ever heard of it? Well, they just created it for this week. Actually, there is a piece. I've got a piece in the Stack that actually makes the case that all of this frigid, chilling cold is due to global warming, strange as it may sound, it says. Other wackos are saying it's a great example of climate change, but regardless, the agenda is that we're responsible, we're causing it, we have to pay the price. And so any weather extreme now is said to be man-made, and therefore it fulfills the leftist agenda on this.

Now, in their attempt, the left, the media, everybody, to come up with a way to make this sound like it's something new and completely unprecedented, they've come up with this phrase called the "polar vortex."

Let's just call it what it is: Really fucking cold.

I grew up in cold climates, so I can deal with temperatures close to zero in shorts without a problem. But that last "Really fucking cold" made my leg hair scream.

Actually, they're saying there never really was a polar vortex visit in the first place. NBC cites The Weather Channel in explaining: "The 'polar vortex' is a real weather phenomenon, just not one that actually visits the United States."

The Weather Channel adds the polar vortex is a circular weather pattern that has always been stationed above the arctic.

Think of it as a wheel. When the polar vortex weakens, a spoke of that wheel branches out beyond it's normal circular pattern, releasing a powerful chill like the one we saw earlier this month.

But, the polar vortex itself never actually descends into our latitude.

The Washington Post says the coming arctic blast may not be as cold as earlier this month, but that "this cold wave may be more memorable for its persistence, rather than its intensity."

In several areas of the country, once temperatures hit freezing Tuesday, they are expected to remain that low for more than a week and a half.

Alberta Clipper like fansince72 said. that's what it was called when I lived up north growing up. one thing I know when it get down in the single digit temp in the Atlanta area its fucking cold. glad I don't have to deal with the sub zero temps. any more.

The polar vortex and Alberta Clipper can both suck it. Friends of mine live on O'ahu, Hawaii, and they've invited me into their home for my vacation this summer. I'm going to keep myself busy during these cold winter days with some online shopping for new beachwear and other necessities for some fun in the sun.
