Record cold

While much of the planet has been engulfed in record cold weather, one must wonder how the warmists will "hide the decline" this winter. There's been lots and lots of coverage of these record lows from China and Korea to India, Russia, Europe, the UK, Canada and the US. Even normally sunny warm Florida was not immune, where frozen iguanas are dropping from trees.

More bad news for snowbirds looking to escape the harsh winter conditions:

(CNN) -- Key West, Florida, the southernmost point in the continental United States, hit a 131-year low of 47 degrees Thursday and the forecast promised more of the same as icy cold swept across the Southeast.

Temperatures on Sunday and Monday at the tip of the Sunshine State are expected to be in the low-to-mid-40s.

The fast-moving cold that gave Florida the chills also combined with moisture from the Gulf of Mexico to dump a dangerous mix of ice and snow throughout the Southeast, coating roadways with a slick glaze.

Numerous school systems throughout the region closed.

At least nine deaths around the country have been blamed on the round of winter weather this week.
The fact of the matter is extreme cold is more hazardous that the combined effects of tornadoes, storms, lightning, floods, hurricanes and heat waves. Oh yeah, and it won't be good for the price of orange juice either.
