2009-2010 Winter Coldest In Decades In ENC

Can you remember when it's been this cold for this long? Well the National Weather Service says it's been about thirty years.

NWS meteorologists say we haven't seen a cold snap like the one we've seen this winter since 1980.

The average temperature has been right around 40 degrees this year in New Bern. Weather experts say the cold snap is due to arctic air coming down from Canada.

Precipitation has been increasing lately and experts say El Nino may be to blame for much of the recent wet weather.

And we're not out of the woods yet. Coastal counties could see some snow this weekend.

    Laughing....you claim to be a conservative? I think you are using the wrong manual. You are posting from the Progressive liberal manual. When you put the t in treehugger in your agenda, we all know where you are coming from. Actually Mustangs comment about conservatives giving more to charities is a cold hard fact. I know you apparently watch and focus on the liberal agenda, however, he, like me, likes facts, not the hooey you post. Now, go enjoy your global warming, its outside, about 5 inches of it. Also, reread the story line here; 2009-2010 Winter Coldest In Decades In ENC. Obvously, you don't pay your heating bill..most of use conservatives, do.

    My religious beliefs are none of your concern. I was raised Christian and believe in the same things true Christians do. I don't bend my way around the Bible and I certainly don't profess to know every single meaning behind every single bible verse unlike a few who post on here day in and day out and justify death and killing all done in the name of God with respect to war. I find that disgusting and abhor folks who use God's name to justify any of it. I do know this, our life, this earth, the air we breathe are all gifts from God. It's not our right to abuse it, but we all choose to. Just as most on here ranting and raving about God punishing "gays" and God punishing terrorists, and so on and so forth, God too will punish us for abusing the very soil we were given to live on. Now, you wanna call that a conspiracy theory? You want to question my religious morals? Your foolish comment about conservs giving more than liberals is political hogwash. Money drives your side.

    Actually Laughing; Scientific facts are showing that the theory of evolution, which many conservatives eschew, is becoming as much as anomaly as your man made global warming. As far as helping others; conservatives give many times more that liberals to charitable causes. Science and emotion can hold a conversation. It's only a problem when emotion takes precedence over the true facts. You see; my religious emotions are based on facts which the scientific community cannot disprove. It appears that your lack of religious emotion is based on ignorance. These are beliefs that I am never funny or fickle about. As far as the oil situation: well it looks like once again you've fallen to the liberal propaganda that we are running out of one of the most abundant resources on earth.

    Laughing at 10:34AM,I never heard of an only thing that makes you paranoid turn into 4 or 5.Think about it guy you SAID IT!GOTCHA!

    Well Mustang....Science won't get you into heaven now will it. The same party that has zero use for helping anyone but themselves and concentrates whole heartedly on their personal monies is the same party that barfs up useless bible verses in hopes it will make them look better. Emotion is moral driven. We feel based on what our true morals are. You're right, science and emotion will never ever be able to hold a conversation ever. The same way when some liberals (not I), based evolution on scientific fact and the conservatives emotion drives them to say no no no no no. You see what I mean, hypocrisy runs rampant. You guys will now pull the scientific card with no emotion, yet are full of emotion when it comes to things like evolution and the creation of mankind. You folks are so funny, fickle even. One day you say one thing, one day you say another. Bottom line, like I said. Keep belching out what we've been doing for years and our oil use and we'll see what our kids get.

    Part II, you can believe them, however, just remember, you are relying on a past lawyer in most cases, to state your belief in. Anyone, that approaches them with enough money, in the form of a lobby, will have an ally. This is my point. Now, if you want to fall for this hooey, thats your right, however, I would rather stick to the facts. Global warming, climate change is a scam, to collect taxpayers money for distribution of your money to foreign countries. It is part of a progressive liberal drive to communism in America, the new world order. Thanks, but no thanks, just like second hand smoke was just a ploy to prove they could control human behavior. They bombarded us with information that it was more dangerous, to our children, than what a smoker sucked into their lungs....sorry, Not that gullible, maybe you are that gullible, OSOC doesn't cater to myths.

    : Laughing Location: NC on Feb 12, 2010 at 03:20 PM, first, I hope you have parked your car and walk everywhere you go, practice what you preach and set a good example. Just don't wear the foil hat when you walk. Yes, I did drink out of the stream. I even drink my well water, never buy bottled water and rarely drink sodas. The problem you don't see, the debt will be hard to recover after one year of massive spending. Do you have a crystal ball to see how much will be spent over the next 3 years? Again, I will remind you, volcanos spew much more damage to your environment that cars do, sorry, its a fact. You are bent on believeing man is destroying the earth, well, volcanos did and continue to do more damage based on facts. Go after them, try to stop one, it will help. I minored in Nuclear Physics and understand more about this earth than most. We are not the damage, the culprit or the danger. Then there is the politician. They are far more dangerous than all the cars in the world.

    Ron: Most conservatives are logical and seek the facts which are necessary for an informed opinion. They question that which they believe to be untrue ande seek the truth backed by scientific or historical data. Liberals on the otherhand are ruled by emotion in the absence of facts, and fall prey to those who spew untruths and uninformed opinions. That is why it is difficult to engage in an intelligent conversation with them as they usually have no facts to back up their beliefs.

    Ok to the ever so knowing and well educated OSOC, respond to what I said about you people being the same people who rant on and on and on about how your children will inherit all this debt from our current state yet you won't address what I said. Seems to me apparently you folks arent?? interested in the earth your children and children's children and grandchildren and on and on will inherit? Because previously that's all you hypocritical folk could do was talk about the future of your children. Now, I guess you think by continuing down the path we've been on for a while it'll really have no effect whatsoever on said children and children's children. Let's just keep belching out the same stuff we have for the last 100 years and see what things will be like in another hundred for them. Bet you didn't go drink some water out of that stream did you? If you think for one second things will just be ok and nothing's gonna be different, your mind is so limited and fixed, you're done.
