It really is my old lawnmower -- chuga chuga ... poof.
All the small detail of linked vortexes is gone. A couple of hurricanes have sucked out the heat. For us to be warm we need tropical moist air plumes, or monster hurricanes.
No warmth in the Pacific belt. That bit in the north is very cold, just warmer than normal.
The sputtering of the engine hasn't made my sunspot buddy happy. He ignored the Spencer plot uptick because it didn't fit into his philosophy. Now he should be happy, and things will correlate. Warmies will ignore the fact it's going to get really cold, and the Arctic ice volume will hit new records. The UK is still waiting for a heat wave. Poor schnooks.
I'm tired of gas engines that won't start. I'm retiring the cottage gas chainsaw and got a neato electric one with sharpening. I always hit the damn rocks and go through chains like toilet paper.
