    its amazing to think that all this talk of global warming when extremes like this where going on back then, i wonder if we had extreme heat and cold since then although i expect there really rare events.

    but very intresting maybe where going to experience cold like this again sometime in the future and heat to after long over due cooler period. :huh:
