Re: Georgia's Warm, Right? Not Today!

100 years ago the winter was _much_ colder. About 20 degrees colder that this weather.

The abermarle and pamlico sounds froze over. This winter is nothing.

Re: Georgia's Warm, Right? Not Today!

Last night here in Suwannee River FL, about 4 I hear my water pump running, I quickly realized water was frozen & jumped up & shut it off..it's 3pm & 34 degrees Fahrenheit. ..there was ice on the dock! Burrrr! I obviously didn't get far enough south! It should be against the law to get so cold! Lol.. but I guess I won't get much sympathy from the folks up in the Northeast Coast .....I feel sorry for you folks...my pump didn't thaw out till about 2pm.......so this brings a question that I never thought I would need to ask, what do you do to keep storage water from freezing? I had to wait for things to thaw to do dishes this morning!

Right, I understand the Northern climate, I lived in New England for many years. It’s just not right getting snow like this in SC.

The day I moved to Missula Mt on August 21st years ago there was 6” of snow on the ground.

Re: Georgia's Warm, Right? Not Today!

From the CBC News article: "How can it be so cold with global warming?
Don't confuse weather — which is a few days or weeks in one region — with climate, which is over years and decades and global. Weather is like a person's mood, which changes frequently, while climate is like someone's personality, which is more long-term, Furtado said.

"A few cold days doesn't disprove climate change," Furtado said. "That's just silly. Just like a couple down days on the stock market doesn't mean the economy is going into the trash."

You were staying aboard but not keeping it warm enough that the water in the boat wouldn't freeze? Heat the boat up, mate!

Re: Georgia's Warm, Right? Not Today!

As a kid in grade-school, our Canadian history class showed us a picture of George Washington (first U.S. President) crossing an ice filled Delaware River. Or, the first settlers in Jamestown froze to death during the winter. What changed? Maybe temps are just normalizing.

Re: Georgia's Warm, Right? Not Today!

At Sequoyah's dock in New Bern, North Carolina, there's ice on everything, six inches of snow on top of it, and single digit nights. I have no idea what we did to make the weather gods so annoyed with us, but we need to figure it out.

Always seemed like one or two boaters on the bay bought it during winter from falling in getting on or off their boat after an ice storm.
How do you keep warm your living quarters aboard? Just curious. Contemplating living aboard sometime. What's the relationship heat/humidity in a boat in winter? Can you keep the heat evenly distributed below? Would love to hear your comments. Thanks.

Re: Georgia's Warm, Right? Not Today!

We had the same stuff in Texas about two days ago. Much better now. Should be in the 50s tomorrow. Going to break out my flip flops.

... The average high in Anchorage is 22. On Tuesday, highs are expected to reach the mid 40s. As of 8:53 a.m. AT, it was already 41 degrees. At the same moment, 12:53 p.m. ET, the temperature in Jacksonville, Florida was 40 degrees.
Yes, it was indeed warmer in Anchorage than Jacksonville today (Jan 2)...
