Why do they always seem to schedule these things in mid-winter?

I'll assist...

The hearing was to be on global warming a theory that the temperatures of the earth are increasing for xxx reasons

There was a large ice storm made possible by unseasonably cold weather that passed through the Washington Area, shutting most things down, including the hearing on warming

The irony is a hearing on global warming was cancelled due to an ice storm brought on by unseasonably cool weather


This is funny, but of course it doesn't mean anything as we all agree

They know what the irony is. They are just pretending to think it's not funny because it might make them "look" bad. No sense of humor FTMFL!

we often get a little snow overnight, but it usually melts the next day. High temperatures in the 20s like we've had all Feb (12 out of 14 days?) are unseasonably cold

It's still above the record lows, at least in DC.

We get snow storms like this all the way into march around here.

We have record-breaking snowfall all across the country this year. Anything record-breaking could be considered 'unseasonale' since it hasn't happened before.
