    Merry Christmas, tAV!

    I like the picture of snow on the trees.

    O snow, which sinks so light,
    Brown earth is hid from sight
    O soul, be thou as white as snow,
    O snow, which falls so slow,
    Dear earth quite warm below;
    O heart, so keep thy glow
    Beneath the snow. -Elgar

    Merry Christmas Jeff and family. I was over at the RC open site, and can’t believe the stuff they still hang on to. I think it will take time and continued effort to overcome that junk.

    I’ve been reading your site for some time – really enjoy. I understand you’re a Cheddarhead like me? Grew up in northeastern Wis now living in southern Wis. Love this state and the fall & winter seasons. Beautiful, as in your photo.

    Take care. Merry Christmas!!! And go Packers.

    Merry Christmas to you and yours.

    Here in Spokane, Wa we’re pretty much snow free (had 2-3″ earlier this month.) Last year we had about 6′ (yeah, feet) of snow in a two week period, right about this time. I guess it was the 100 year storm, or something along those lines.

    I’ll take dry over that much snow, thank you.

    Merry Christmas Jeff, thanks for all your hard work over the last year. Please also pass along heartfelt thanks to Mrs. Id for putting up with it.

    Enjoy the winter wonderland. My sister is attempting to visit her in-laws and is currently stranded at O’Hare, so she is also enjoying your Midwest weather. We’re muddling through here in California. Here is our vantage point as of about an hour ago. No snow for the kids, but no driveways to shovel either…

    Your blog has come a long way in a very interesting year. keep up the good work, Jeff. Best wishes to you and your family.

    Got more snow than you do! πŸ˜‰ We are looking to escape from it with a mid-January trip to Vegas, then Pasadena, to visit our 2 day old granddaughter.

    Merry Christmas to all!

    CLIMATEGATE Is it of any interest of what is said at: by:

    β€œThat would mean the FOI zip file(at least the email portion) was packaged in the western hemisphere and shipped back overseas to GMT.”
    Jeff have a relaxing time, and to the contributor of FOIA-Comment 10, and to all other visitors:

    Merry Christmas Jeff and everyone. We’ll be celebrating with friends tomorrow after private unveiling of loot from Santa. Then it’s off to Steamboat for some holiday skiing (4 hour drive from my home). πŸ™‚

    Fully 1/2 of America is covered in the white stuff and more is on the way.

    And it’s snowing here in North Texas!

    And a very Merry Christmas to all!

  13. I love that white globalwarming stuff.

    About to turn midnight here, merry Christmas from UK to you all. And thanks Santa for the biggest present of all, the CRUtape Letters.

    Merry Christmas.

    ….still online shopping on Christmas day – I blame it on the snow: OMGIWTWT!

    Seasons Greetings to all πŸ™‚

    Merry Christmas Jeff!

    We have a bit over a foot so far in my town in MN, and lots more to come, I hear. Tis the season to appreciate 4WD and the snowblower πŸ™‚

    Have a great holiday!

    Admit it, you are a denier. You had those trees flocked to hide the decline!!!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to ALL!!

    Merry Christmas

    Merry Christmas to you and yours- wishing you the best of times.

    Merry Christmas Jeff.

    Merry Christmas to you Jeff. I appreciate what you and the other talented skeptics have revealed about the lies and con men of global warming. I just hope that we skeptics as a group can keep the pressure on politicians and make the most of the fraud you guys have uncovered. And a very special Merry Christmas to whoever clipped the CRU emails! We can never repay you.

    Merry Christmas – or Nadolig Llawen, as one says here in (frozen) Wales.

    Thanks for all you’ve done, JeffId – long may it continue!

    Merry Christmas Jeff Id + family!

    Great job, you collection of disgusting, non-consensus, Gorephobic, unscientific “lukewarmers” and deniers! I’m sure you all got a big lump of COAL in your stocking, and that you will burn it POSTHASTE, so it can release all it’s CO2 and help hasten the tipping point!!

    Seriously, Jeff and friends: MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

    BTW, interestingly, there is absolutely no cheer or mention of Christmas at RC… Somehow, that is very fitting and understandable, in my world view.
