According to the squirrels burying there nuts early, we in the UK are in for a harsh winter....Apparently. Which has made me think of the gulf stream more and more. And was wondering if it was slowing down, which sounds good to me as i prefer the cold. I know us brits aint had much of a summer, and what with global warming melting the ice caps which in turn float ice down to us , thous causing the gulf stream to cool down.:banana: What do you guys think?
