A Polar Vortex in Jan./Feb. 2011 - a Sudden Flash Freeze like Dec. 20, 1836?

Will the Capricorn New Moon ingress in Central USA presage an Extreme Weather event
like the catastrophic arctic blast or Illinois' Sudden Change of 1836.

A couple of friends of mine remarked that it has remarkably cold winter since December but here in SF Bay Area We are only supposed to hit 38F on Monday, Jan. 10th. - we will see especially with the earth's magnetic field radically impacting climate.
Since the Dec. 21st Lunar Eclipse/Solstice it has been extremely cold in almost
all of the USA. So when I saw this recent article, weather report about an Arctic blast called a Polar Vortex bringing massive cold weather, my intuition was piqued. After all on Tues. Jan. 4th we had
a partial solar eclipse after a rather cold Capricorn New Moon.
Many of the conditions for Black Swan meteorological event are present:
Majority of planets in Southern Declination for sustained cold.
Uranus and Jupiter descending into the IC for accelerated changes.
Multiple squares with Sun-Moon square Saturn, Venus square Neptune and Mercury
the weather planet applying to squares with Jupiter and Uranus.

( -- A strong surface high known as a Polar Vortex will come down from the pole. This will deliver extremely cold air to the Central and Eastern United States, including areas in the Pacific Northwest and Montana by the week after next week.
A polar vortex is defined as a persistent, large-scale cyclone located near one or both of a planet's geographical poles.
Could this be the trigger for future event similar to that Flash Freeze on the afternoon of Dec. 20, 1836 with stories of chickens frozen in their tracks and men frozen on their saddles. As we will see in the charts below
a sudden change like this would involve the planet Uranus along with Mercury of course and planets in southern declination known for colder temperatures.
On that afternoon, an intense cold front swept across much of Illinois bringing a prodigious and rapid temperature drop. At 2 pm, the thermometer of Dr Samuel Mead of Augusta had recorded a drop from 40 oF to zero Fahrenheit in less than 8 hours. Many say that drop was nearly instantaneous.
See below that Uranus is both square the moon and opposes Mars
while Mercury at MidHeaven is applying to a TSquare to the Ascendant and the IC
Pluto is closely Quincunx Saturn and Sesquiquadrate Mars which creates a deadly
A Chart Set for Dec. 20, 1836 @ 12 PM when the temperature dropped dramatically.
In order to get an idea of what happened then and what can happen next week,
here is an account from that frigid day in 1836.
During the daylight hours of December 20, the arctic blast swept across Illinois. Whatever the actual magnitude of the temperature drop, the sudden change in temperature made a lasting impression on those who experienced it. Many accounts of the event have passed to us from Illinois residents through their memoirs and local histories.
Could this happen sometime next week

Here is an personal account of what happened...
Samuel B. Mead was one of two to measure weather conditions that day. His morning ( around dawn local time) temperature reading was 40, but at 2 pm the mercury had dropped to zero. (At the same hour, Ft Dearborn (Chicago) reported 39 oF.) Many remembered conditions suddenly change from quite warm to the severest cold in five minutes.
As we head into the weekend, weather conditions and temperatures are steady at 18F
but with volatile, cold mutable Venus-Mercury in Sag. ready to square Jupiter-Uranus, history could repeat over the next week with another a preciptous drop could happen in the next few days.
