The cold weather record has been broken with 23 consecutive days of temperatures below 0 degrees Fahrenheit. Never in the recorded history of Duluth weather has there been 23 consecutive days of sub-zero temperatures.
On another note the Winter of 2013-2014 in Duluth has tied the record of number of days below zero degrees Fahrenheit at 59. This record was tied in the Winter of 1958-1959, the Winter of 1916-1917, and the Winter of 1874-1875.
If we have much more global warming we are all going to freeze to death.

Oh, my... are you sure you want to line up behind Krauthammer?
Some of Krauthammer's more memorable quotes:
- "Time is running short. Saddam HAS weapons of mass destruction. He IS working on nuclear weapons."
Wrong, wrong and wrong.
More bull**** from Chucky:
Iraq is Hitlerian Germany, a truly mad police state with external ambitions and a menacing arsenal.
Wrong, no arsenal.
Saddam survived, rearmed, defeated the inspections regime and is now back in the business of building weapons of mass destruction.
Kissinger says that regime change in Iraq is an appropriate goal. The point he made in his syndicated column, and which he continues to make, is that in its "declaratory policy" -- i.e., public posture -- the United States should emphasize weapons destruction rather than regime change in order to garner allies for the war. But our actual policy is to achieve both. After all, the goals are inseparable. Given the nature of Hussein's rule, destroying these weapons requires regime change.
What weapons, you moron?
The vice president, followed by the administration A Team and echoing the president, argues that we must remove from power an irrational dictator who has a history of aggression and mass murder, is driven by hatred of America and is developing weapons of mass destruction that could kill millions of Americans in a day. The Democrats respond with public skepticism, a raised eyebrow and the charge that the administration has yet to "make the case."
And the Dwms were right. Also, if Saddam hated America so much, why is there a photo of Rumsfeld shaking hands with him?
Hawks favor war on the grounds that Saddam Hussein is reckless, tyrannical and instinctively aggressive, and that if he comes into possession of nuclear weapons in addition to the weapons of mass destruction he already has, he is likely to use them or share them with terrorists. The threat of mass death on a scale never before seen residing in the hands of an unstable madman is intolerable -- and must be preempted.
Wrong, again. All the Iraw Hawks were in fact - chickenhawks.
[W]hy does the president, who is pledged to disarming Hussein one way or the other, allow Powell even to discuss a scheme that is guaranteed to leave Saddam Hussein's weapons in place?
Fool, Powell knew, and knows, more than you ever will.
President Bush remains apparently sincere in his determination to rid the world of Hussein and his weapons.
Except,as we know, Bush was wrong, just like Chucky.
The president cannot LOGICALLY turn back. He says repeatedly, and rightly, that inspectors can only verify a voluntary disarmament. They are utterly powerless to force disarmament on a regime that lies, cheats and hides. And having said, again correctly, that the possession of weapons of mass destruction by Hussein is an intolerable threat to the security of the United States, there is no logical way to rationalize walking away from Iraq -- even if the president wanted to.
So, Chucky's LOGIC says we couldn't turn back and SAVE FIVE THOUSAND AMERICAN LIVES.
Blix never really found anything big in his scavenger hunt through Iraq, but he reported to the Security Council that Iraq's regime had failed to cooperate and disarm.
Under Resolution 1441, that is a material breach. It is a casus belli.
So let's kill 5,000 Americans and spend a couple trillion.
On Sept. 11, 2001, the cozy illusions and stupid pretensions died. We now recognize the central problem of the 21st century: the conjunction of terrorism, rogue states and weapons of mass destruction.
Wrong,, Central problem of the 21st century was the August 6 PDB and Bush ignoring it: Bin Laden Determined To STRIKE iN US
The reason you [President Bush] were able to build support at home and rally the world to at least pretend to care about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction is that you showed implacable resolve to disarm Iraq one way or the other. Your wobbles at the United Nations today -- postponing the vote, renegotiating the terms -- are undermining the entire enterprise.
Bush almost made the right choice, then perpetually wrong chickenhawks like Chucky kept pushing to spend trillions and kill 5,000 Americans.
The inability to find the weapons is indeed troubling, but only because it means that the weapons remain unaccounted for and might be in the wrong hands. The idea that our inability to thus far find the weapons proves that the threat was phony and hyped is simply false.
What the????? "The inability to find the weapons is indeed troubling" as it was the reason you killed 5,000 American soldiers, and you knew it all along.
