U.S. Dec/Jan Temperatures 3rd Coldest in 30 Years
Frankly I don’t know how Obama and his ilk sleep well at night with the knowledge his anti fossil fuel policies are shafting the poor the most. http://wattsupwiththat.com/2013/03/15/james-hansen…

Yes, Virginia, it really has been a cold winter.
The winter months of December 2013 and January 2014 averaged over the contiguous 48 United States were the 3rd coldest Dec/Jan in the last 30 years.
The analysis is based upon ~350 NOAA/NWS stations that measure temperatures every 6 hours (or more frequently), many located at airports. This is different from the official NOAA temperature product (update not yet available), which is based upon daily max/min temperatures measured at 1,000+ co-op stations. Those stations have had large adjustments made due to (among other things) changing time of observation (TOBS) over the years.
Here’s a plot of the Dec/Jan averages for the last 41 years (click for large version):
