We are just getting beaten up here in Vancouver, BC. I've lived here all my life and never seen weather like this. The next person that says there's no Global Warming should come and have a look at the damage done here. Over 1,000 old growth trees have been knocked down by the winds in Stanley park. When I saw the overhead shots my breath was taken away. We've had winds in excess of 110 Km/h (approx. 70 mph). We're use to a breeze.
The other side of Canada, which is usually under a ton of snow by now is laying off ski hill workers because they can't even make snow. They are normally around -20c to -40c and now they are above zero.
I work at a news radio station and I hear and read things that never get to public but nothing prepared me for this. We don't get weather like this...ever!
Now, you want to talk about Global Warming? I've seen Al Gore's movie as well, wake up people! If it's affecting our lives, can you imagine what it will be like for the kids?
On a happier note, we just put over 3,000 kms on our Compass and love it more everyday. It can go places in snow that our Jeep Liberty wouldn't even try.
