Our local news channel (WSAU) is reporting with 97% of the votes in, Kloppenberg is ahead with 16,000 votes. But wait Waukesha County, the same one with missed votes, is the last one out painting their votes red with envy. Amazing how vote totals can chance so much.
I think when anyone tries to use a single weather event as "proof" of global warming it actually hurts their cause. I think the case is still out on climate change. I also think that these attempts to attach the global warming issue to every significant weather event are a mistake.
