This is where it all went wrong.

So .... how about that weather?

Something went terribly wrong this spring. That is clear. But what?

I've looked up the numbers and pin-pointed exactly where it went wrong: Saturday, March 9.

The following is a graph that shows the daily high temps this year, the same from last year, and the historical mean high temp for the day:

As you can see, beginning March 9 there is not a single day where this year was warmer than last year, or where we exceeded the normal historical high for that day. In fact for the most part we were a good 5-10 degrees below the normal temperature for that time of year.

That's a pretty spectacular run of below-normal temps!

The tricky question is: why did it happen? What happened on March 9 to cause our thermometers to plummet?

Well, I looked into that too and I've found the answer: On March 9 an asteroid the size of a city block buzzed by earth. It is apparent that the gravitational pull or cosmic wake from this asteroid caused a short term alteration in Earth's weather patterns such that winter was extended by a month and a half on the prairies.

That is your explanation folks. If you are skeptical then that means you don't trust science.

I suspect it has more to do with the Pacific trench continental plate shift earth quake that lead to a tsunami, followed by the melt down of a couple of nuclear reactors in Japan than anything else.

The quake was so strong it actually caused a gravitational shift that caused satellites to alter course.

The temperature pattern of the Pacific Ocean is still altered with the Pacific Ocean covering about 1/3 of the earth and affecting temperature transfer to land masses.

We all know what forty days and forty nights of rain will do but forty days and forty nights of cold would be different so when you look at causation you should be prepared to look beyond mere physical elements.

How do you know that someone up there wasn't just going ....testing, testing....

Maybe the naughty people of Manitoba would do well listen once in a while.

You may have some there UncleBob because while I'm sure you and I could make a quick trip through the interlake while the "seas are parted" it won't be long before it's all one big lake during this weekends heat wave...

Anon1: An earthquake affecting the weather? Pfft. I've never heard of anything so ridiculous!

Actually my dear Cherenkov thermodynamics and exothermic reactions are one of the simplest to comprehend and yet most extensive areas of physical science dealing with virtually ever aspect of our world and universe - from weather to black holes.

Is this satire of some sort?
