MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Snowfall left Minnesota to the southeast Saturday night as winds became stronger, making falling temperatures feel even colder.

At the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Saturday night, only one runway was working. It would open for 30 minutes, then close for 30 minutes for plowing. Nearly all flights were canceled, so MSP provided cots for stranded passengers and employees.

Delta canceled all of its flights into or out of MSP Saturday and hopes to resume flying Sunday, scheduling additional fights to accommodate delayed travelers. Affected customers have already been re-booked and can find flight and weather waiver information on delta.com.

In addition to problems at the airport, Metro Transit suspended bus services Saturday evening and Hennepin County pulled all plows until 2 a.m.,or until it is safe. However, Hennepin County plows still plowed emergency routes leading to hospitals.

The Minnesota State Patrol said between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m., troopers responded to 79 crashes involving property damage, 13 crashes with injuries and 392 instances of vehicles spinning or sliding off the road, but no fatal crashes.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation advised no travel in the Twin Cities area Saturday evening, and closed Highway 50  between Highway 52 and Highway 20.

In southwestern, west central, central and northern Minnesota, a wind chill advisory is in effect until noon Sunday.

In west central Minnesota, a wind chill warning is also in effect until noon. For the southwestern part of the state, that will last until midnight Monday morning.

Southwestern Minnesota is also under a blizzard warning until 4 a.m. Sunday.

West of the Twin Cities, the warning will be in effect until 6 a.m. In south central Minnesota, 9 a.m.

Southeast Minnesota will be the last to clear, with a blizzard warning expiring at noon on Sunday.

Sunday morning, people woke up to below-zero temps for the first time this season with a predicted low of -9 degrees early in the morning. However, strong winds of 15-25 mph were expected to make it actually feel like -25 to -35 degrees. But there is a little good news.

“We will have some cold sunshine Sunday and a high of only 4,” said Trenda.

“It will be much easier to get around,” added WCCO-TV Meteorologist Chris Shaffer. “Cold again Monday and Tuesday before we start to warm up by midweek.”

Saturday evening, Regions Hospital said they’d treated six patients for injuries related to the storm, none of them serious. Two people had shortness of breath from working outside, one was hurt in a crash and three slipped and fell.

The last time the Twin Cities received a foot or more of snow from one storm was the blizzard that went from Feb. 28 through March 2, 2007, WCCO Meteorologist Mike Augustyniak said.

    We’re getting January temps in early December along with snow snow snow. It doesn’t mean that winter will end by February but there is only so much cold air being created in the arctic, so maybe this winter will be over by the end of February like last year.

    1. George says:

      It’s the start of global cooling.

      1. Tommy says:

        if it’s global warming then how come its soooooo cold?

    2. Global Warming? Really? says:

      A certain amount of climate change is normal. What isn’t normal? All the loony left wing nuts who buy the whale Gore’s every threat!!! Fools all!!

  2. Brandon says:

    ^^I bought my first snowmobile and snow thrower this year and im glad i did! I figured with my luck we would only see a few inches this year! LET IT SNOW!

    1. Smarty Snow Pants says:

      Well look who the economy left high and dry. I have a ten year old shovel. I hate you😉

    2. the patriot says:

      Should have bought a woodstove. What would you do if this was an icestorm and you were without power for 10 days.

    1. John says:

      Well then, go back to where you obviously came from, please.

      1. Pedro says:

        Hey John do you think that might be his nickname given to him by your wife.

    2. burrrrr! says:

      I hate it too. And I’m FROM here.

  3. Darren says:

    It must be that darn Global Cooling!

  4. Jack says:

    Hung… Stop crying MOVE!

    1. Jim says:

      I hate winter hate snow and hate the cold lived here my whole life, used to love it. But I cant just move, have elderly parents here. And what a simple comment..just move..well if all the people that hated the winters “just moved” along with all the “wealthy” getting taxed to death ( and in death) then the rest of you wouldnt be able to afford to live here

      1. mike ablan says:

        oh look, another political rant from another ill informed opinionated wing nut

      2. Thomas says:

        You are right, but i still want to live in warmer clim.

  5. You need Help says:

    ‘Darren’ and ‘Help Me’ – Please stop posting you are making yourselves look like fools.

    1. climate scam says:

      truth hurts huh?

      1. travis says:

        how can you look at all the data from the last 20 + years… that says global climate change is real… then look at one day it cold in minnesota and say climate change is a joke.

  6. Saints #1 says:

    I’ll believe it when I see

  7. Neil says:

    I’m in Phoenix now and the weather is beautiful. Can’t believe I have to come home on Tuesday to all that snow and cold. It’s time to move to a warmer climate.

    1. George says:

      Neil, you should be fine with global warming it oughta warm up.

  8. deeznuts says:

    time to hit the slopes again on Sunday. POW POW for once!

  9. Snow!! says:

    You need help- I think you need help, its called a joke.

  10. Paul Douglas says:

    OMG!!!RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!!!! WINTER STORM KATRINA IS COMING!!! TAKE SHELTER EVERYONE!!! BOARD UP ALL OF YOUR WINDOWS AND DOORS!! WERE ALL GOING TO DIE!!!!!!!!!

    1. Pennie says:

      OMG YOU ARE HILARIOUS!!!!!

      1. derfuhrer says:

        Thought a lighter note was needed.

  11. Linda Johnson says:

    Actually, weather extremes (lots of snow, lots of rain, or no snow, very hot weather, very cold weather, or drought) are direct functions of global warming, more accurately called climate change.

    1. Fun & Games Aside says:

      exactly

      1. sheep says:

        yeah..they had to change it to “climate chage” because global warming was looking like a joke when temps were too cold. Quit drinking the Kool aid!

    2. swsubmom says:

      Climate change has been happening for, let me check Earth’s history….oh yes, it has been only a few millions of years.

      1. Dr. Science says:

        4.5 Billion years to be exact. The biosphere it’s self is around 600 million years old.

    3. George says:

      Is it warming or cooling? You people are idiots, the earth’s climate has been relatively calm for the last 15,000 years in comparison to past history, before man. Get a life, you have been duped.

      1. Fred says:

        George has been duped.
        Here’s a little light reading for a snow day: http://www.stthomas.edu/engineering/jpabraham/

        enjoy

      2. travis says:

        one of the reasons climate has been reletively calm for the last few thouseand years, is because of lesser amounts of co2. we no longer have lesser amounts of co2. Places will warm, other places will cool. but the overall global effect will be waming. I know we are all so self centered and think that what happens in minneapolis mn happens to the rest of the world. It snowed here. they are also expereincing record heat and drought in australia. the people who believe in global warming largely believe in it due to science. the disbelievers disbelieve because of politics.

    4. chic says:

      BS, Linda. Climate change is just another name for weather. It happens! Obviously you haven’t been keeping up with the leaks and fraud of this whole scam. When the worthless un comes for my portion of any ‘fees’, to be paid to third world dictators, I’ll send them to you. Since you’re a ‘believer’, you can pay it.

    5. standard952 says:

      Read the climategate emails

    6. mimi says:

      well said Linda, I would also like to add this….since when did the Twin Cities become the “global center of the world”?

    7. Sir Gareth says:

      OK I get it. So when Minneapolis encountered both its hottest and coldest temperature on record in the very same year then that would be what the climate “scientists” call “climate disruption.” This would be referred to as a “climate change crisis” and could only be warded off only by abandoning free markets and capitalism.

      Oh! The year in which all this man made “climate disruption” occurred would be 1934. (check it out)

      Damn those Ford Model Ts

  12. Fun & Games Aside says:

    Global Warming is an outdated, misleading term used by people who would like to base the potential long range atmospheric impact on one day’s weather. Or it is a term used would rather make the same tired, naive joke that is always made when the weather doesn’t fit the long term scientific theory of Global Climate Change instead of trying to understand the complex system that makes up our atmosphere.
    Global climate change is occurring just as it has in the past (see Ice Age, and I don’t meant the movie). The shifting climate could affect our planet to the point we will struggle to survive if we cannot adapt to it.
    Whether humans are speeding up that process, hindering it, or otherwise somehow affecting it doesn’t mean it’s not happening.

    1. JLKF says:

      Whoa, way to make a simple weather report into a political forum. Annoying.

    2. Tony the elitist says:

      Yeah, I would save it, these people aren’t going to get it regardless of what happens. There was an article a few months back about telling dumb people things that don’t fit into their world view, but the people it talks about can’t even read, let alone meta-cognitively (it means think about how you think for our conservative friends out here…) analyze their own belief systems.

      And it’s not always about politics, it’s about dumb people being tricked into thinking their neighbors are anti-american and elitist by the people those same neighbors are trying to warn them against.

      1. Ryan says:

        Wow!
        I can’t believe those dumb people think you’re an elitist! You seem like a nice humble fellow to me.

  13. Fun & Games Aside says:

    … Or it is a term used “by people who” would….

  14. Taletha Bonner says:

    Okay… I am supposed to be hitting the town with my mom for her birthday…. how much will this effect me in driving??? Like around 12/1am…. Not good….

    1. Dave says:

      Taletha: Looks like he snow will start around 7-9pm tonight, and intensify. Roads will be slick and snow covered around midnight.

  15. Kerry says:

    Someone said this could be like the Halloween Blizzard of ’91…crazy!! I was in 1st grade when that happened! We will see…=) Winter wonderland for Christmas!! (than it can all go away…or I will go away to scottsdale arizona in february)!

    1. Kerry says:

      So weird, I was reading this comment, and I thought I had written it myself! My name is also Kerry, I was also in 1st grade for the Halloween Blizzard of ’91!! Hilarious!

  16. Jim Hoy says:

    Are all the forecasters crying wolf again???

  17. Bill says:

    No Halloween blizzard here since it will not be warm enough to have the wet slushy stuff that then freezes and causes the washboard effect on the highways. That was really nasty in 91. This looks like a lot of fluffy stuff being blown around. It will be much fun trying to snowblow this stuff unless you have the wind blowing in the direction you are throwing. Let it snow!

  18. trish says:

    I’m happy for the snow…just don’t like how inconveinant the timing is…let’s have a storm on a Tuesday for once this year. If I’m going to go into the ditch it better be because I was trying to get to work, not get wrapping paper at Target

  19. NoMoreColdForMe says:

    Thats it… I’m moving to the Sun

  20. Global Fooling says:

    Seriously some of you still believe in Global Warming or the cleverly worded Climate Change. Yeah climate changes. durrrrr.

    1. Linda Johnson says:

      I see you’re just as smart as the FAUX news idiots who do the bidding of Exxon and all the big energy companies. That’s right – just keep playing the fool and watch tee vee while we keep going on a course toward disaster. The fat cats and billionaires who run those companies adore stupidity like yours because they want to keep polluting with no punishment. I’m done dealing with people like you, with your big fat head in the sand.

      1. LibsAreDestroyingUSA says:

        Fat cats? Al Gore? George Soros? Oh, and don’t forget about the wonderful Cap And Trade that you Libs endorse. Hmmmm… I’m wondering who will stand to make billions from that hoax. Could it be the same Fat Cats who endorse GLOBAL WARMING?! Follow the money, honey, and your education will begin.

      2. Bruno says:

        I’m sure you’re a typical hypocrite liberal – rip on oil companies, but more than happy to drive a car, heat your home, travel on airlines, etc….

        In other words…STFU!

      3. George says:

        Linda, you should be happy that all humans will be extinct and the poor planet earth can live in peace like when the dinosaurs were here.
        You have been fooled by Al Gore and Bono.

      4. Uncle Bill says:

        If you send all your money to Al Gore and chase a snowplow in a silly Smart car it will stop snowing.

      5. Grant Smith says:

        Go take a hike in the woods. You will find that nature is doing just fine, it doesn’t need a global tax in order to continue to do it’s thing. Have you ever grown a tomato? I’m guessing no. You have no clue how nature works, but you seem to know how a scam works. Go buy a bunch of mercury filled spaghetti light bulbs. That ought to save the planet, which needs saving of course.

  21. Linda Johnson says:

    And you must be a stupid dittohead. I’m on the side of 97% of the world’s scientists who all agree that human activity is causing climate change. Where’s YOUR science degree? BTW, NASA just announced that 2010 was the warmest year in their 130 history of keeping track. And it’s not only the amount of warming, it’s the speed. Try to do a little reading and thinking before you say something dumb.

    1. Maude says:

      it would require one to have the ability to read hence it will not occur

    2. LibsAreDestroyingUSA says:

      Your ignorance is astounding.

      The Earth has been heating and cooling on its own for eons without man’s involvement. Temperature change is natural. This is a universally undisputed fact reflected in geological and fossil records. Man has had no involvement with global temperature changes. Hubris alone accounts for his belief that he can affect the outcome.

      There is no optimum temperature of the Earth. What global temperature should we settle on since we believe we can change it? Clearly this needs to be answered since the ramifications of the temperature we choose to use will effect every plant, animal, and weather pattern the world over. Answered as the average global temperature we happened to be born into reflects very small thinking and a narrow perspective. There is no possible response to this statement simply because it is larger than we are.

      1. Paul Solinger says:

        Next time you decide to participate in a global warming debate, try not to use Michael Chrichton as a reference.

      2. Mnbear says:

        The earth has been heating and cooling on its own but not at the rapidity that it is now. That is the effect of human actions. Also global warming doe snto mean there never will be winter since global warming effects a variety of changes in different partsd of the world from colder conditions in some to drought in otehrs. Also, climate and weather are not identical. Again I will also support what scientists say not conservative dogma.

        1. pete123 says:

          What? Come on now, we could use a litle global warming about now.

        2. Sir Gareth says:

          Very interesting. So if the weather changes its all due to free markets and capitalism. I see your point.

        3. Bob A says:

          CO2 less than 4 one hundreths of one percent of our atmosphere. The rapidity of heating and cooling has not changed. How can CO2 both cause heating AND cooling. Only unscientific idiots believe this.

      3. Clarence says:

        I agree with you 100%…The liberal-sprout eating, yogurt-eating, tree huggers are DESTROYING the USA!! And, you spandex wearing bike riders get out of our way too!!!

        1. GoochTrimmins says:

          There is nothing quite like a web-based comments war.

          Everyone gets to vehemently spit a couple of half-crocked, baseless claims then run and hide behind the curtain of online anonymity. Let’s call for a cessation to this diatribe and gather our shovels as one! Onward DIG!

          Stay safe out there.

          1. greenest says:

            I was just wondering, is it legal for a man to look at a woman in Sweden?

            (I’m sure it is OK for one woman to look at another woman)

            How about, sitting on the same bench or eating in the same restaurant.

            Somehow, Sweden has become Femi-Islamic.

            Hard to believe the Vikings came from Sweden. All the Raping (Class III) and Pillaging inflicted throughout Northern Europe.

            Maybe it was the Swedish Women that were in fact the Vikings and the men stayed home in Sweden and knitted socks and baked bread.

            As I reside in Bangkok, I have met many Swedish Women.

            For the most part, they were attractive, but when I would get too close, they were repulsive because of the massive stench they emitted from severe alcohol ingestion.

            The drunken binges caused them to ooze a sweaty stench two and three days later.

            I’m wondering if one of the girls in this case was actually not sleeping but was passed out drunk.

            She should have had a drunken stench.

            If Assange was smart, he would have hidden in Switzerland, it worked for Roman Polanski.

    7. Jolly Rancher says:

      @ Linda Johnson…

      That is the most idiotic statement I’ve ever seen. There are ALWAYS weather extremes EVERY YEAR. That is what happens on planet Earth, whether or not we exist. Do you honestly think that there weren’t major hurricanes, landslides, earthquakes 10000, 5000, 2000, 1000, 200 years ago? Of course there were.

      Ugh, it’s just maddening that so many people think that we are the cause of and also can magically “fix” climate change. Newsflash, there is nothing we can do to prevent the planet from naturally running through the cycles it has and always will. Just enjoy the beautiful world we live in, try to treat it decently and we’ll all be fine…

      I’m willing to put up all the money I will ever make that Florida will not be underwater in the next 50 years…any “believers” willing to put their money where their mouth is?

    8. Bob A says:

      You unscientific hysterics just make up numbers as you go along. If you looked at the science you would see the earth has been heating and cooling for 5000 years. Just remember most doctors believed bleeding was good for you 250 years ago. CO2 is less than 4 one hundreths of one percent of our atmosphere. Not enough to do ANYTHING idiot!

  22. Maude says:

    to Global Idiot;
    I have some land in New Mexico. maybe 750,000 acres of ice. Do you desire to buy it?
    Climate does change – global warming is in effect a climate change I suppose.

    Wild weather is a normal outcome of global warming and this is not some new thing added onto the definition. However, this is just one storm. People one local storm != global climate. In other words:

    1. global warming deniers – This storm proves nothing
    2. global wamring believers – ditto

    A statement by Linda Johnson:
    “…97% of the world’s scientists who all agree that human activity is causing climate change.”
    I believe that is a false statement, that the actual number is closer to 50-50, or even higher the other way. Many of those who advocate “global warming turned climate change turned global warming = global cooling” are on a big money payroll, whether from George Soros or others who would profit from cap and trade. There is evidence we are entering a mini-ice age due to low sun spot activity.

  49. Bella Dirche says:

    Methasotans choose to live in the frozen wasteland due to cognitive dysfunction. Scientists have analyzed them, and suspect that the low IQ found here is due to either toxic levels of methamphetamine, inbreeding, or atrophy.

    are you one of those warming kooks?? It all invented for the money! Dummy! In the 70’s we where all going to freeze by 2000. Now we are all going to boil!!! What a bunch of lib kooks! Go away.

  51. bob says:

    the kooks always have to cut you down because its the only way they know!! That is so funny! Eco kooks! So silly. You just want the money and this is the way to do it. Sorry, no dough for you!!! Big scam and everyone knows it.
    Yes we are warming, and cooling, back and forth, all natural form the beginning of time. Not man made, ever, we are too small for any of that.

    Lake Minnetonka 700am 15 inches, Keep it coming

  54. clueless says:

    How much snow has fallen so far this storm and how much more is coming? It is 7:30am Sat, I’m peering out the window from my home in Inver Grove Heights and it looks like we received about 8 inches so far.

  55. bill says:

    That would be the “I-can’t-see-past-my-own-nose-warming”. The polar caps are melting. Maybe that’s where you should move.

  56. Amanda says:

    We sold our snowmobile over the summer as we don’t get enough snow to ride anymore. Mistake.

  57. StaticKlingon says:

    If liberals want to correct something foolish and irresponsible they should revisit the big push for so-called sustainable fuel in the form of grain-derived ethanol they insisted on. Monoculture cropping is destroying the environment due to the vast amounts of herbicide, pesticide, and chemical fertilizers it requires. Maybe you should fix that particular problem you all created before you take on the frigging weather! Even your high priest of Global Flatulence, Al Gore, admits it was a stupid idea.

  58. mark from mntaxwaste.com says:

    11am 16 inches Lake Minnetonka, A sliding we will go!

  59. Odd says:

    I was looking for comments to see what other towns were getting in terms of snowfall, not to be lectured whether or not there is global warming. And what’s up with all these negative comments about liberals in general? The oddest thing…

  60. Clarence says:

    I wish I had a nice big pick-up with 4 wheel drive!!

  61. Kyle says:

    Mark
    I aways knew you were rich. Nothing is cheap on Lake Minnetonka. No wonder why you push your right-wing agenda all of the time. For your own personal reasons, you need tax cuts for the top 2% of people in our country. Merry Christmas from your complete opposite person in the world.

  62. Nate Hoffmann says:

    Glad I didn’t base my decision to live in MN on these comments. You guys are embarrassing.

  63. Phil says:

    Buck up. Minnesnowta! We get bragging rights over the rest of the country. Enjoy.

  64. GoochTrimmins says:

    There is nothing quite like a web-based comments war.

    Everyone gets to vehemently spit a couple of half-crocked, baseless claims then run and hide behind the curtain of online anonymity. Let’s call for a cessation to this diatribe and gather our shovels as one! Onward DIG!

    Stay safe out there.

  65. shutinmn says:

    I want a hole in the ozone for x-mas and a palm tree in my front yard. That’s all I want nothing else. Oh yeah one more thing , sorry, for you all to STFU you ignorant shallow minded race baiting obama butt licking liberals. OK that’s it I promise.
    Be safe out there.

  66. Nancy says:

    Thanks for the great coverage this morning. I even got to see my morning crew today………..YOU ARE NUMBER ONE!!!!!!!

  67. Jim says:

    Actually, weather extremes (lots of snow, lots of rain, or no snow, very hot weather, very cold weather, or drought) are direct functions of global warming, more accurately called climate change.

    JUST LOVE THE CYA

  68. MARTY MCGEE says:

    is it snowing out yet i don’t want to get out of bed and look out the window

  69. derfuhrer says:

    There is an upside to this people! It certainly helps to keep out the riff-raff!! Well,most of it judging from the comments here!

  70. Walt says:

    So many blind and ignorant people here post on something they actually no nothing about. Global warming is nothing more than a money grab people like Al Gore and others use to rip us off. Every thousand years or so the earth cleanses its self: it is recorded under the earth’s crust. You all need to take your bull elsewhere everyone is tired of hearing your entire political BS. Why want you do all of us a favor and go post on your Democratic Socialist blog space and leave us out of it, because, all you are doing is wasting our time talking about lies and deceit. I just cannot wait till we get a real leader into the White house, so oil companies can go back to work here at home. It cost a lot to fuel up my jeep and snowmobile. I am a transplant from Atlanta, Ga. I came up here for a summer in 2001 to work. Well I am still here and loving it. I love the snow, the majority of the people, and hunting; although the fishing isn’t as good, it doesn’t stop me from fishing. I learned if you don’t like something, you should move away from it. I say go to Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, or Cuba if you cannot take the snow or cold. But then it appears some of you are not as smart as you think. I love it here in MN. I love the people, the weather, and the beauty of this state. If you don’t like it leave.

  71. Adam says:

    Heard the Giants got stranded in Kansas City. Maybe the Vikes will win tomorrow!

  72. pete123 says:

    good thing we don’t have to rely on CCO for a web based forcast. Anybody else see that it is going to be 50 degrees and in the 40’s this weekend. Oops’s looked like someone put the wrong tape online.

  73. Stephen says:

    Why isn’t WCCO doing a news story about all the retail employees reporting for work today? Malls opened this morning and most still are. When did sales become more important than safety? A better question – Who, if any, are these customers making trips to the malls/stores in this weather? I want what they are driving!

  74. mayhem says:

    MINNESOTA = WINTER HELL HOLE

  75. random74 says:

    Climate is what you expect. Weather is what you get. Mark Twain..

    let all get out there and shovel!

  77. ron says:

    Feel bad for y ‘all , but it is a little chilly here in Galvaston,TX., and I thought this started out to be a weather report-to funny

  78. mark from mntaxwaste.com says:

    HEY FOLKS, Don’t forget Santa is watching to see the comments that are naughty or nice

  79. Zippa says:

    I hit 13 fairways today. Gee, I miss being a rugged Gopher.

  80. peacejoycompassion says:

    On October 29 I watched on CNN as 18 soldiers came home to Dover Air Force Base in boxes. Those 18 soldiers would’ve loved to be here today in snow, rain or sleet to be with their families. They wouldn’t give a damn about your arguments about Global Climate Change. Lighten up people, be grateful for what you have in your lives.

  81. peggy811 says:

    ‘ignorant shallow minded race baiting obama butt licking liberals’ ‘liberal-sprout eating, yogurt-eating, tree huggers’
    Those are pretty mean words. I know some too.
    Everyone knows the most popular gift for a conservative is knee-pads, and we all know why.

  82. Bob Murphy says:

    One good thing that’s still going on (Sunday, December 12 at 6:00PM) is the annual “Home for the Holidays: A Minnesota Christmas” concert at the Pantages Theatre in Minneapolis – the show is a charity concert featuring GB Leighton, Tim Mahoney, Phil Thompson, Robert Robinson, Mick Sterling – 10 great artists in total. There are still some tickets available for only $31 – we should all support this great effort and make an awesome Christmas story happen!

  83. hindshaddow says:

    Hey all you GREEN Types, shouldn’t you be using METRIC!

  84. Sir Gareth says:

    These are the times that we must all express our gratitude to the foresight of our politicians in making energy costs skyrocket in order to cool the fevered earth.

    How fortunate you miserable souls are to be paying for the Cancun party goers and all their other endless fiestas in which they plan for Minnesota’s banana plantations. Its all part of the new “government planned economy” what with winters becoming a thing of the past and all that other “global warming” hysteria.

  85. Mike says:

    Good job, City of Saint Paul! You plowed Como Avenue 12 times yesterday. Now, would it be possible for you to plow more than one street in my neighborhood so some of us can use Como?

  86. Samantha Middlebrook says:

    Thanks for sharing, Bob – great idea! I found the link to the concert you were talking about:

  87. Bob A says:

    And the global warming hysterics say this is caused by global warming!? CO2 is less than 4hundreths of one percent of our atmosphere. Global warming idiots are as dumb as evolutionists! LOL

  88. She B says:

    I told everyone on the thread 2 days ago that WINTER IN MINNESOTA SUCKS AND I WAS RIGHT!! Look it here!! 17.2 inches of snow and the Metrodome totally collapses in ! I ‘m from here and I have seen enough!
    Bridges flying out of the sky in 2007
    Metrodome Roof collapse in 2010
    Job market totally sucks!!! Enough!..I am so done with this state :O
    I’m getting out of this stinky state when I can…I can’t stand it here anymore!!!!

  89. Kyle says:

    One cold day doesn’t mean global warming is not happening people. I am going to go with the scientists from across the world on this one. All of you right-wing crazies out there can’t have it both ways. When there is one hot day in the summer, you say “one hot day doesn’t mean global warming is true”. Give me some data to back up your ludicrous statements and go and watch fox news and bang your head against a wall.

  90. Ginny says:

    To heck with right, left, etc. All of you need to pull your heads out and quit slamming other comments. None of you have proof of anything. Some scientists are claiming that the POLES are shifting. What is that from? Is that global warming too? All I know is that the global warming clean up is going to cost us alot of money. When it’s the legal loophole manufacturing plants who should pay for the clean up, not us.

  91. Carpet cleaning air ducts says:

    I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I came across this during my search for something concerning this.
