1/4 cup (unsweetened) cocoa powder

4 cups milk.

Put the 3 first ingredients in a small saucepan under medium heat and stir. When it boils, add the milk, stir regularly and bring to a boil. Serve with whatever condiments you prefer (whipped cream, marshmallows, candy canes...).
Do you hunt, clean and butcher yer own cocoa? Or are you one of them city folk who buy theirs in a can? Honestly, I can't enjoy cocoa unless I know I killt it myself..
Accourse! I grow me own beef as well.
Ever have that problem where the herd migrates over yer house? I had a coo wouldn't come down for goddamn decade. No lie! Ended up havin' 4 generations livin' on the space between the chimney and the veranda. A sight to be seen, believe you me!

It's cold and slippery. Below 20°C expected in a few days

Long range February UK prediction

It is raining hard here again..

Peaceful forgets there has been no warming for last 17 years, even the diehards start to admit that, and does not know the mini Ice age is fast approaching in the next several years!

Yes and they think on Saturday morning there may be dangerously high waves off the south and west of England.

The wind is also enhancing the seas.. As sustained speeds of 60mph+ blow around southern Ireland, Wales, W England and the Channel on Saturday (notice 'sustained' not 'gusts'), huge seas will be driven onto the western and southern coasts. The combination of wind and low pressure will be driving mountainous seas (and those words are not exaggerated) into Ireland, Wales, SW and southern England through Saturday and Sunday. Wave heights of over 50 feet are predicted, and although reduced slightly by the time they reach shore, these beasts could be frightening.

London of course has The Thames Barrier, a structure made of 10 steel gates each weighing 3,300 tonnes that shields central London from tidal flooding, and it prevented widespread damage in the capital after the downpour.

Apparently the Great Lakes are almost completely frozen over the first time in 20 years, with almost 90% ice cover. The highest recorded ice cover was in 1979, when 95% of the Great Lakes were frozen. (Although modern data is only back to 1973). Lake Superior alone is reported to be over 94% frozen over, at an average ice thickness of 10 inches.

Man, that's hard to imagine! My parents live right on Lake Huron, and in all my Christmas visits I can only remember it freezing over maybe a few hundred feet out at most. It's been a cold winter so far here, and I love it!

Cold and snowy, the best!

Yesterday's storm for us here on the midcoast of Maine sucked though, too much mixing so we only got a few inches of actual snow before it all turned to slush.

Luckily tonight's storm is all snow and we're supposed to get anywhere from 10 to over 18 inches of pure white gold, I fucking love Winter.

And we only got about 5 inches, second storm this week where we got significantly less than was thought, still it's snow and the more snow the better.

As I said we need to look at what is happening, not be tied to particular theories and make the facts fit them.

While this sounds alarming, even a cursory analysis shows that the data actually documents that temperatures STILL have not significantly changed during the last decade (or for up to 17 years), and confirms that the hiatus still dominates the global climate today.

I think eastern USA and parts of Canada had it all.

I found a balanced weather website,Watts Up with that? it does veer more to scepticism, but is interesting

http://wattsupwiththat.com/

Simon Keeling reports on this as below, looking at Dalton Minimum solar cycles comparisons, predicting solar cycles to year 2040, from around 7 minutes in this video, saying we are entering to a colder period maybe but not necessarily a mini ice age...

http://www.weatherweb.net/wxwebtv2.php

Also spring has sprung in southern England, sunny and dry to around 18 March now.
