    When the Brits are buried this Winter under feet of SNOW I hope someone reminds them of this ‘article’ by the Independent!

    Alpine areas in both Australia and New Zealand received considerable amounts of snow, and freezing temps, last weekend thanks to the Great Australian Blizzard of November – 2 weeks before the official start of our southern summer.

    Next weekend Australia’s mountains are in for ANOTHER dose of ‘never to be experienced again’ snow – this time a mere few days before ‘summer’. Children just aren’t going to know what warm sunshine is / was.

    If you go to the “Independent” article on Wayback machine there is an amusing comment posted in 2009.
    It reads:-
    “Hello? Charles Onians [ the author of the article] in 2000? Don’t ask me to explain but I’m posting this back to you via a time warp from December 2009. Yes, the future! You probably won’t believe me and will think I’m mad or joking, but get this. Britain is suffering its second extremely cold winter in a row – we have enough snow, ice, frost and freezing fog to cobble dogs with (whatever that means.) Far from being “a very rare and exciting event”, snowfall has become a major hazard in this country twice this past year – and we haven’t even got to February 2010 yet. Also (again you will probably think I’m joking) but the CRU [ climate research unit at University of East Anglia – climategate etc] has just become a liability to climate science – leaked e-mails and files have revealed a web of deceit and manipulation that threatens to undermine the theory of Anthropogenic Global Warming itself. I urge you to pull this article immediately, as it will become a laughing stock in years to come. Charles? Hello? Hello? … Rats, I’m probably too late.”

    My comment-
    My wife and I moved to north west France from the UK in September 2009 and in January/February 2010 we had the worst snow for 30 years according to the locals – 20 miles north of us they had 3 1/2 feet, roads blocked, lines down etc – unheard of in this locality. As well as minus 10 to 15 C temperatures at night, again most unusual here.
