  1. We, now days are understanding more then long ago. Long ago we just lived with the cold winters. But, then the winters started to change and then we started to search for some answers. We called it, Global warming. But, it is actually Global cooling. So, now we have tools that will give answers to our changing winter climates. Polar Vortex. It is something like the pollutions that covers a certain area coming out of our steel plants. It puts a lead on the pot, so to speak. It is nice to have the understanding of why and why not.
    I like to learn the truth about all things. I welcome the advances of our technological capabilities . The weather reports have been nicely advanced in the last four years to benefit us in our daily lifes.
