And Korea

After China, we now get a report from NPR that Seoul residents are battling the heaviest snowfall in modern Korean history after a winter storm dumped more than 10 inches on them today, forcing airports to cancel flights and paralysing traffic in South Korea's bustling capital.

The snowfall, which began about 1 am (1600 GMT Sunday) and continued through the afternoon today (their time), was the worst since Korea began conducting meteorological surveys in 1937, the state weather agency said.

Note ... "the worst since ... 1937". If this is global warming, then God help us if we actually get a cooling cycle.
