When Does Weather Become Climate?

The global cooling deniers (hey; if anyone in the least bit skeptical of anthropogenic global warming can be lumped in with Holocaust and moon landing deniers, then, well, two can play that game) are constantly yapping about how "weather isn't climate" whenever someone points out the decade-long drop in global average temperature. I'd really like to know just how much weather it takes before it becomes climate?

And isn't it odd that one hot day in Chicago or New York is reported endlessly and breathlessly as a "taste of things to come." but 3,000 record lows is a complete media non-event?
