La Nina Ends

 That was not very exciting.  The main factors giving us cold in the North are the ending of the North Pacific current and the Gulf Stream, since 2016.  That's bad enough, but I have been watching both the Atlantic and Pacific equatorial belts.

Sad to say, the Pacific belt is recovering back to full strength.

Although it still looks bad with the temperature anomaly, the cold feed has shifted.

The cold water from the Antarctic is starting to veer away, and is no longer at the source.  Just 2 weeks ago, the whole belt current looked like it was disintegrating.  In another 2 weeks we won't even know there was a problem.

So, it looks like we are going into a minor ice age of the usual 20-40 years, and not the big one.  Things could still change.

Mr physics guy. Question Can you give me 1 good reason why I would wear a mask outside. I think I am getting a complex for not wearing one up here in R Hill.

You wear a mask because they tell you to. The powers want to appear to be doing something. However, with 2m separation, and outside, they aren't forcing mask use. It's only for indoors. If you want to do something useful, wear safety goggles, and cover your coughs and sneezes.

There's been some crap about the cold and the virus lasts longer. Look at your breath in the cold, it rises because it is warm. I consider the whole covid thing to be another non-physics disaster, but not one where people will learn anything. The best thing about the warmie non-physics disaster is that we'll start freezing to death, while they yammer that we'll boil to death. Can this go on?
