GSM Update 11/17/17 – Record Snow – 500% Typical Snowpack – Finland Fireball – Rocky Ross 128b


 

 

 

Jackson Hole is reporting 100″ of “record” snow and nearby Grand Targhee is already up to 105″ for the season. http://denver.cbslocal.com/2017/11/16…

Near-record early season snowfall hits mountains; Olympics at 500% typical snowpack. SEATTLE — The snow is falling and ski resorts are opening. That’s par for the course in a Pacific Northwest November. But the amount of snow we’re seeing this early in the year is almost unprecedented. According to a snow-depth information report released Wednesday by the Northwest Avalanche Center, most area passes are seeing well-above average snowfall for this time of the year.

Atmospheric Compression Snows and Floods Europe & N Hemisphere Cools ~ Adapt2030


 

 

Note: Does the global warming cult have an explanation for the record cold temps and record breaking snowfalls in the Northern Hemisphere? Not likely, they’re praying for a massive volcanic eruption so they can say the ash cooled things down…

A rare Medicane roared over the southern Mediterranean countries with an atmospheric compression event, biblical folds in Greece and three feet of snow with nine foot snow drifts. Ferocious electrical storms pummeled the region as well.

GSM Update 11/9/17 – Record North American Snow – Fireball In Germany – Crop Loss – Preparedness


 

 

Early Snow in North America Breaks Record Over one-quarter of the area of the Lower 48 had snow on the ground on Nov. 8. This is the largest areal coverage of snow on that date in at least 14 years, according to NOAA data. In fact, snow cover over North America is also at its most expansive for this time of year since the middle of the past decade, as Dr. Judah Cohen, director of seasonal forecasting at Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER), a Verisk Business, brought to our attention. The heaviest snow cover was found in the northern Rockies and the Canadian Rockies, but snow was also on the ground over a sizable swath of the High Plains, northern and central Plains, and dusted parts of the interior Northeast after a brief round of snow the previous day. This included the season’s first snow in the northern Texas Panhandle on Nov. 8. https://weather.com/storms/winter/new… https://www.nohrsc.noaa.gov/snowfall_v2/ http://www.krtv.com/story/36795596/bu… https://www.joe.co.uk/news/weather-fo… https://watchers.news/2017/11/08/very… https://news.google.com/news/headline… Sickness spreads among Ambae villagers in Vanuatu as volcano remains active: http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/201… https://news.mongabay.com/2017/11/glo… https://www.winnfm.com/news/local/242… The vulnerability of countries worldwide to extreme natural events has declined this year, according to this year’s World Risk Report, an alliance of German aid agencies.

GSM Update 10/28/17 – Bardarbunga Volcano Rumbles – Record Snow & Hail – Tanzania Flooding


 

 

 

A record-breaking snowfall in British Columbia knocked out power and shut down roads on Tuesday, October 24. A total of 23 centimeters, or nine inches, fell, which broke the record of 15.2 centimeters, according to a news report. More snow fell on Wednesday morning, bringing the total to 55 centimeters, or about 21 inches, for the two days. https://ca.news.yahoo.com/record-21-i… The first winter storm of 2017-18 came in a fury Friday — causing mayhem for municipalities and travelers across the Northland and dousing a warm fall in a coat of snow and slush. Lake Superior waves caused major damage to the Duluth Lakewalk and Brighton Beach, causing city officials to close large parts of those popular recreation areas until further notice. The waves — pushed by wind gusts in excess of 60 mph, and coming on top of already-high lake levels — caused flooding in Canal Park, on Park Point, on Madeline Island and near Ashland, among other areas. The snow totaled more than 10 inches at the Duluth International Airport — a new daily record for the city in October. Rain quickly changed over to snow during the Friday morning commute in downtown Duluth, causing havoc for drivers trying to navigate the avenues.http://www.duluthnewstribune.com/news… https://watchers.news/2017/10/27/dr-c… https://watchers.news/2017/10/27/larg… http://www.sibconline.com.sb/no-its-n… http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/8… https://watchers.news/2017/10/27/extr… http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2017/10… http://www.alaskahighwaynews.ca/regio… https://weather.com/storms/hurricane/… https://news.mb.com.ph/2017/10/27/p50… https://watchers.news/2017/10/27/trop… Please Visit Our Facebook Resources: Solar Shutdown: https://www.facebook.com/SolarShutdown/ Comet C/2017 K2 – Panstarrs: https://www.facebook.com/OppenheimerR… Plasma Geology: https://www.facebook.com/Plasma-Geolo… Oppenheimer Ranch Project: An experiment in high alpine sustainability. https://www.facebook.com/oppenheimerr… Please SUBSCRIBE to our channel if you enjoyed the content.

SOTT Earth Changes Summary – September 2017 : Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs


 

September was yet another extremely violent month from an ‘earth changes’ point of view. A series of class X solar flares seem to have been the harbingers of unprecedented natural phenomena, in both quantity and intensity. Two historic earthquakes hit Mexico causing more than 300 deaths, destroying hundreds of buildings and damaging thousands more. The 2017 Atlantic hurricane season is among the top 10 most active in history, and it’s not over yet. So far, the real shocker was three hurricanes at the same time, two of which, Irma & Maria, tore a swath of destruction through the Caribbean and into central Florida. Unseasonable snow and cold temperatures also hit Northern Europe and the US northern States this September, while oversized hail, heavy rains and flooding also pounded Europe, South Asia and Africa. Check it out below, and thanks for watching and don’t forget to like and subscribe so you don’t miss the ongoing drama!

Note: This channel does a great job at archiving global weather events, but it’s data on global warming is false – this person still beLIEves in the climate change propaganda. I’ve made comments on his channel pointing toward the Global Cooling and Grand Solar Minimum researchers data and was thoroughly attacked by the global warming trolls and the gatekeepers of the false data.

Take note of how he/she glossed over the Montana blizzard in the first week of October, gave it mention but no virtually video coverage – just one short clip. At best the region may get a dusting of snow in early Autumn – NOT inches of snow.

June Snow Removal Western USA & August Skiing 200+ Inch Base


How quickly the main stream media would like you to forget the record snow pack across both the Sierra Nevada and Rocky Mountains for winter 2016/2017 as the IPCC said snow pack would go to zero due to global warming. Roads at passes in California and Colorado were bogged with snow up to June 20th, but the media focuses on a desert area with regular temperatures over 118F. They sure wont mention August skiing or cosmic rays or shifting inter-tropical convergence zones. You are on your own in terms of correct information searching.

Powerful windstorm batters France, killing at least 2


Powerful windstorm batters France, killing at least 2

Severe weather, including snowfalls and hurricane-force winds, has been affecting the central-southern and south-eastern areas of the France over the past 48 hours, causing at least two fatalities. Severe weather is forecast to continue affecting the country over the next 24 hours. The storm, named Zeus, will then exit into the Mediterranean Sea and rapidly deepen as it moves toward Italy. Severe to extremely severe wind gusts are expected this evening and tonight.

This powerful windstorm was produced by rapidly deepening cyclone coming from the British Isles toward Northern France this morning. An intense sting jet has developed within the cyclone, Severe Weather Europe reports, traveling right across Brittany, NW France.

Meteo France has updated the number of departments on Orange alert to 31 this morning and urged residents to be vigilant, stay off the rooftops and secure objects that are liable to be blown away.

The departments on Orange alert, as of Monday morning, March 6, are: Cantal, Corse-du-Sud, Haute-Corse, Loire, Haute-Loire, Lozère, Puy-de-Dôme, Rhône, Allier, Charente, Charente-Maritime, Cher, Corrèze, Côtes-d’Armor, Creuse, Finistère, Ille-et-Vilaine, Indre, Indre-et-Loire, Loire-Atlantique, Maine-et-Loire, Mayenne, Morbihan, Deux-Sèvres, Vendée, Vienne, Haute-Vienne, Alpes-Maritimes, Dordogne, Gironde, and Var.

The agency said that significant damage could be caused by the wind as well as disruptions to local traffic. There is also a possibility of cuts to electricity and telephone lines, it warned.

The town of Camaret, in Brittany, saw record-breaking winds of 193 km/h (120 mph) during Monday morning. Winds reaching 191 km/h (119 mph) were recorded in Ouessant, 180 km/h (112 mph) in l’Ile de Groix and 170 km/h (105 mph) in Pointe du Raz.

As of 07:00 UTC on March 6, local media reported two deaths, including one in the municipality of Seyne-sur-Mer and one in Marseille (Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur). Two injuries in the Aveyron Department (Occitanie Region) and one person missing in Marseille have also been reported.

Tens of thousands have lost power by 12:00 UTC today.

Over the next 24 hours, severe weather is forecast to continue affecting the country.

The storm will exit into the Mediterranean Sea, redevelop and intensify late March 6 and into March 7 as it moves toward Italy. Severe to extremely severe wind gusts this evening and tonight.

Geoengineered Mass Distraction, “Winter Storm Jonas”


11a
Dane Wigington
geoengineeringwatch.org

The total desperation of the the global power structure and the geoengineers is manifesting into ever higher levels. There is no question that global climate engineering is a weapon mass destruction, but it must be considered (and remembered) that weather/modification (AKA weather warfare) is also a weapon of mass distraction. What are those in power trying so desperately to hide? Much more than the public wants to know or is willing to accept (on many fronts). The massive corporate media hype about “winter storm Jonas” started immediately before the global release of headlines like the one below from The Washington Post.

It’s Official: 2015 “Smashed” Global Temperature Records, It Wasn’t Even Close

11az

Let’s rewind almost exactly one year from the headline above, and move to a previous headline (also from The Washington Post) that is a near mirror image of this year’s headlines.

It’s Official, 2014 Was The Hottest Year In Recorded History

What were the weather-makers up to after this headline was released around the globe from countless media sources a year ago? The same thing they are doing right now with “winter storm Jonas”. They were doing their best to completely eclipse dire news stories by manufacturing “winter storm Juno” in January of 2015. How parallel can these two scenarios be?

What else is the massive media hype about “winter storm Jonas” helping to hide? The global economy is crashing and it’s not coming back. This is not a bump in the road for industrialized society, it is the descent to the end of the road. The delusion is shattering, perpetual expansion on a finite planet with finite resources was never sustainable and it is reaching its breaking point. Global shipping is skidding to a halt, economies around the globe will follow. There are many other headlines those in power would like to hide including the poising of the population in Flint, Michigan and the rapidly worsening gas leak disaster in Southern California. And then of course there is the ongoing Fukushima cataclysm which continues to worsen and which those in power wish to obscure with headlines of mass distraction.

Back to “winter storm Jonas”, how engineered is it? Completely. If you don’t believe winter storms can be engineered, think again. The power structure controlled “Weather Channel” has been tasked with hyping the manufactured winter weather to the maximum degree possible. One of the ways The Weather Channel accomplishes this is by assigning theatrical names to the engineered winter weather. The 2015-2016 list of “winter storm” names is below.

11ax

The beginning of “winter storm Jonas” is documented in the map below. On the so called “warm side” of the “winter storm” there were temperatures in the 70s with a threat of tornados and thunderstorms. Then, heading further into the chemically ice nucleated “winter storm”, there is a transition zone where the chemically nucleated materials reach the ground before freezing. These “ice storm” zones have now become the norm due to the constant engineering of “winter weather” events. Still farther into the chemically nucleated “snow storm”, a layer of cooler dense air builds in depth (from the cooling endothermic reaction of the nucleating materials), the generally large flakes of “heavy wet snow” begin to form and fall. Thundersnow” is related to the chemical nucleation of warmer convective rain bands that would not have produced frozen precipitation without the artificial/chemical nucleation process. Those that don’t believe jet aircraft are spraying in our skies, (as part of the ongoing global climate engineering programs) have simply not objectively investigated. Though the western powers continue to completely deny the ongoing climate engineering, China has openly admitted to engineering snowstorms in the past, though they have since also gone covert with their operations.

11as

The low pressure center and moisture feed for “winter storm Jonas” (shown in the map below) is feeding directly off of record warm oceans. The Weather Channel actors that masquerade as meteorologists are having an ever more difficult time covering the tracks of the geeoengineers. Watching them try to explain away the “warm side” of the “winter storm” (complete with thunderstorms and tornados) is troubling. Weather systems are being chemically ice nucleated all over the globe.11ac

As “Jonas” is migrated north toward its target area, the chemically nucleated “ice storm” zones will expand and likely do significant damage as reflected in the graphic below.

11ad

The next forecast map below shows “Jonas” hitting home Saturday morning. With the warm flow of moisture coming off the Atlantic the temperatures along the coast are far above freezing. As outlined earlier, there is an “ice storm” transition zone where the chemical nucleation materials are still reaching the ground before freezing. Further into the “winter storm” (as the chemical nucleating materials are sprayed over the precipitation cells), some cooler air accumulates from the chemically reacting materials and thus facilitates the formation of the “heavy wet snow”. The headlines of mass distraction sought by the power structure and the geoengineers are thus achieved. The “snow line” within the engineered winter storms now has little to do with elevation, rather, it is related to a particular side of the “winter storm”(the “warm” or the “cold” side). A word of caution about the chemically nucleated frozen precipitation, don’t eat it. Main stream media sources have already sent out a warning against eating the snow, though they won’t admit to the most significant source of contamination in the snow, climate engineering fallout.

11ah

What is the final result of this massive climate engineering effort? The most populated urban centers of the most populated zones in the country are hit the hardest with the completely engineered winter weather. The desired headlines are thus created, maximum public distraction and political impact is achieved. Conveniently, Washington DC and Baltimore are at the center of the “Jonas” bullseye.

11af

What is the latest and most compelling update on the actual overall state of the global climate? The just released 30 second animation below is a stark and shocking glimpse of a reality that much of the public still does not know, understand, or believe.

While the climate engineers manufacture weather in major US population centers, the Arctic continues into meltdown. The “departure from normal high temperature” graphic below clearly shows the far above average Arctic temperatures. Temperatures at the North Pole have recently been above the freezing mark even in the middle of winter . Where is the mainstream media coverage of this?

11at

How long will “snow storm Jonas” remain in the Northeast? Likely not for long as the NOAA extended forecast below clearly illustrates (unless, of course, the climate engineers decide to again alter the “scheduled” weather). Each color shade represents a 2-3 degree increase in temperatures above the range of “normal”. The engineered cool-downs in the US East are losing ground as the planetary warming continues to accelerate.

11ap

From collapsing economies to the imploding climate system, those in power will continue to use every weapon at their disposal to hide the severity and immediacy of what is unfolding until the last possible moment. All the while they are rapidly preparing for what is coming. Every day that climate engineering continues, an already horrific global warming scenario is made far worse. Geoengineering/solar radiation management is not a cure, rather, it is a curse that is even worse than the crisis it claims to mitigate. Our task is to beat the global criminal cabal to the intersection. We must fully expose the climate engineering assault and stop geoengineering before those in power are prepared for this to happen.

There is yet one major wildcard in the chessboard of unfolding circumstances and converging catastrophes, that is the population of the US. If Americans could be awakened to the sea of criminality and deception that is so rapidly surrounding us all, the outcome of the paradigm could yet be altered for the better (though our challenges have only just begun at best).  As the global economic collapse continues (fueled by the imploding biosphere), the US will soon find itself at the center of the storm. The further the curtain is pulled back, the more Americans will begin to realize that crimes like the poisoning of the water in Flint, Michigan, and the Southern California gas leak disaster, are only a small sample of what has been going on behind the scenes all along.
The global elite are more desperate than ever, “Winter Storm Jonas” is a stellar example of their desperation. Climate engineering/weather warfare is being pushed to ever more disastrous levels all over the world. The entire climate system is  unraveling due to MANY causal factors, which is imperative to remember. This being said, geoengineering programs are like a bucket of gas that is being heaped on a fire that is already burning dangerously. Overall global land and ocean temperatures are in  record high uncharted territory and constantly shattering records. The mass die-off of wildlife will continue to accelerate with new examples coming to light constantly. The very foundations of industrialized/militarized society are crumbling, empires are floundering and preparing for inevitable conflict.
Each of us, all of us, are going to sink or swim together. We are free falling into the most critical era in the history of the human race. Our daily actions and priorities (or lack of them) will determine our collective fate and future. Make your voice heard in the critical battle to expose and halt the global climate engineering insanity, every day counts.

Unusual lightning, a bizarre blanket of fog, freezing temperatures, and first-time snow: extreme weather shocks Australia


Image

Wild and wintry weather is sweeping through Australia as incredible thunderstorms hit Sydney following a morning of thick fog

Wild and wintry weather is sweeping across Australia overnight, bringing chilly temperatures, lightning storms, frosty winds and even snow.

As temperatures plummet to its lowest in 15 years, Sydney awoke to a cityscape engulfed in thick fog on Saturday morning, which saw the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge disappeared into the thick blanket of fog.

The strong cold front from the Antarctic has continued to drift through the southern and eastern coast of Australia with temperatures dropping three to seven degrees below average for five days running – the coldest spell some states have experienced in five years.

Temperatures in Brisbane are set to dip up to five degrees below the July average and snow flakes are expected to cover Eukey near the NSW border.

By Sunday morning, temperatures in Melbourne are expected to drop five degrees, with forecasters projecting the city will be the second coldest capital in the country after Canberra. Possible snow in some of Melbourne’s outer suburbs is expected with forecast to fall down to 500 metres in alpine areas.

People have been warned to batten down the hatches ahead of the worst of the storms overnight as the effects of the icy blast will be felt from Sunday and temperatures are expected to remain chilly until Friday.

It also advised people to move cars undercover, put away or secure loose items at home and be aware of falling trees and power lines.

The freezing front began to roll across the country on Friday afternoon, delivering conditions not seen in 15 years, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.

Temperatures are expected to fall to zero or below across large parts of Victoria, New South Wales and Tasmania, with bitterly cold winds and hail also forecast. Snow is predicted to reach as far north as Queensland, after already falling across Victoria, South Australia and NSW.

The conditions are significant due to the fact that Sydney’s CBD only experiences strong fog about five times a year

Adelaide is likely to spend most of the weekend in single figures, with a high of 12 predicted. However, elsewhere in South Australia it won’t top 8 degrees until the cold snap passes.

Tasmania looks set to cop the worst of the storms, with temperatures unlikely to rise above 15 degrees across the state, while some of the coldest Mount Wellington residents can look forward to minimums of -2.

Western Australia and the Northern Territory will likely escape most of the storms, however slightly cooler temperatures than usual are forecast.

‘We’re expecting temperatures will plummet, winds will be fresh to strong, and snow will fall down to low elevations,’ Bureau of Meteorology NSW Regional Director Barry Hanstrum said.

‘This weather system could benefit snow enthusiasts with more snowfall expected in the Alps well into next week,’ Mr Hanstrum said.

Snow is forecast to fall as low as 600 metres, according to Weatherzone.

‘These showers will at times and in some places contain small hail and combining with the bitterly cold and strong winds will add to an already exceptional chill, making the actual temperature feel as much as five degrees colder,’ Weatherzone said.

Forecasts predict snow could still be falling on the east coast on Monday, with the cold front expected to linger for up to a week.

The extreme condition are caused by a massive cold front combining with cold winds.

Fire authorities are also warning people to be careful when using heaters during the extended cold snap, and are bracing for a spike in the number of call-outs received this weekend.

NSW Fire and Rescue is urging residents to check their smoke alarms and avoid bringing in outdoor heating equipment inside the home.

‘We are seeing people use home-made heaters, such as terracotta pots bolted together and placed on top of butane gas cookers, indoors,’ Chief Superintendent Chris Lewis said, according to SBS.

‘These types of make-shift heating devices not only put you at great risk of carbon monoxide poisoning but also starting a fire in your home.’

The Blizzard that Never Was – and its Aftermath on Cattle and Ranchers


 

Note: This story is heartbreaking, not just for the cattle that suffered but also for the ranchers devastated by the loss….

October 8, 2013

The worst blizzard in recorded history of South Dakota just swept through the state. Tens of thousands of cattle are predicted dead and the much of the state is still without power. The Rapid City Journal reports, ”Tens of thousands of cattle lie dead across South Dakota on Monday following a blizzard that could become one of the most costly in the history of the state’s agriculture industry.”

 

The only reason I know this is because my parent’s ranch, the setting for Meadowlark, lies in the storm’s epicenter. Mom texted me after the storm. “No electricity. Saving power on phone. It’s really, really bad….” She turned on her phone to call me later that day. “There are no words to describe the devastation and loss. Everywhere we look there are dead cattle. I’ve never seen so many dead cattle. Nobody can remember anything like this.” Author of several books and infinite numbers of articles, Mom said, “I can’t imagine writing about this. I’m not going to take photos. These deaths are too gruesome. Nobody wants to see this.”

 

I searched the national news for more information. Nothing. Not a single report on any of major news sources that I found. Not CNN, not the NY Times, not MSNBC. I thought, Well, it is early and the state remains without power and encased in snow, perhaps tomorrow. So I checked again the next day. Nothing. It has now been four days and no national news coverage.

Meanwhile, ranchers on the plains have been dealt a crippling blow the likes that has not been experienced in living memory. The Rapid City Journal continues, ”Silvia Christen, executive director of the South Dakota Stockgrowers Association, said most ranchers she had spoken to were reporting that 20 to 50 percent of their herds had been killed. While South Dakota ranchers are no strangers to blizzards, what made Friday’s storm so damaging was how early it arrived in the season. Christen said cattle hadn’t yet grown their winter coats to insulate them from freezing wind and snow. In addition, Christen said, during the cold months, ranchers tend to move their cattle to pastures that have more trees and gullies to protect them from storms. Because Friday’s storm arrived so early in the year, most ranchers were still grazing their herds on summer pasture, which tend to be more exposed and located farther away from ranch homes.”

In addition to the financial loss, when a rancher loses an animal, it is a loss of years, decades, and often generations within families, of building the genetics of a herd. Each rancher’s herd is as individual and unique as a fingerprint. It is not a simple as going out to buy another cow. Each cow in a herd is the result of years of careful breeding, in the hopes of creating a herd reflective of market desirability, as well as professional tastes of the rancher. Cattle deaths of this magnitude for ranchers is the equivalent of an investment banker’s entire portfolio suddenly gone. In an instant, the decades of investment forever disappear.  It is to start over again, to rebuild, over years and years.

 

Cattle have a very real money amount that ranchers and their families depend upon. This is also true of acreage and the size of a herd. This why you never, ever ask a rancher, “How big is your ranch?” or “How many cattle do you have?” These are the equivalents of, “So, how about you tell me the amount of money in your bank account?” With these losses, it is up to the rancher to divulge, or not, the number of head lost. It is not polite to ask, again the equivalent of asking, “So, how much money just evaporated from your bank account?” People outside of the ranching world often ask these questions with the best of intentions. They have no idea how these questions are experienced by the rancher. 

 

People have asked me, “What can we say then?” On this occasion, a heartfelt, “I’m sorry for your loss,” goes a long, long way. 

 

Here are two excellent pieces, written by local newspapers, on the loss and devastation to the living landscape:

To ranch is not a job, it is a life. In Meadowlark, which takes place on my parent’s ranch, the main character, Grace, studies the economic situation of the ranch, “By lamplight, Grace pored over the columns of numbers that represented the ranch. The sound of the pencil against the paper rose from the page and drifted into the corners of the room. She studied rows and numbers, written and erased, then written and erased again…This was all this ranch was to the bank: Expenses and income—the quantities of the former far outnumbering those of the later. 

 

Nowhere was there space for the things that represented the ranch’s true value. Headings such as Life, Hope, Dreams, and God-It’s-All-We’ve-Got did not exist. Nor was there room for Memories, Legacy, and Blood-and-Sweat. No item reflected the scent of the prairie grass after a summer rain. No place for the times Grace had rocked James and prayed that the land would sustain him through a lifetime. “

 

The prairie is a place of extremes, where the weather and land always take primacy, because they must. In Meadowlark, Grace writes in her journal, “The beauty. The bitterness. Not a land of mediocrity but of stunning beauty and brute force.”

 

The prairie experienced a summer of beauty, with rain we hadn’t seen in years. The prairie was lush with grass and cattle fat and glossy in the pastures. Now, we experience the brute force of the prairie, with tens of thousands of cattle dead and ranching families and communities left reeling. All of this death and destruction from The Blizzard that Never Was.

 

Mom just wrote, “As the days warm, more and more carcasses are exposed. So many have lost so much.”

 

I invite you to lift prayers and light to the people and animals of this region. When I told Mom there were so many people sending love, she said, “We feel it. It helps.”  

 

If you’d like to leave your words of encouragement and prayers in the Comments section if this piece, I will make sure they get to those who most need to hear them now.

 

 

Anchorage sets new record for longest snow season


 

 

May 20, 2013 ALASKA 232 days – it took over 30 years for Anchorage to set a new record for the longest snow season on record. The National Weather Service measured 2/10ths of an inch just after 9 p.m. Friday and 1/10th Saturday morning – breaking the old record of 230 days set in 1981-1982. Anchorage police responded to 22 crashes, 4 with injuries and 37 vehicles in distress between midnight and noon Saturday. Police say roads were wet and not icy midday and “motorists should use caution if the temperatures drop below freezing. Other parts of the city had much higher amounts of snow, however official measurements must be consistent and observed at the Sand Lake forecast office. The recent snowfall also broke the daily record for liquid precipitation, lowest maximum temperature for May 17, and a host of other records. NWS says Saturday evening’s forecast calls for “mostly cloudy with isolated snow showers in the evening…then partly cloudy after midnight – lows in the upper teens to mid 20s and north wind to 15 mph.” For Sunday, the forecast will be mostly sunny, highs in the 40s, and light winds, according to NWS. –NBC

Extreme Weather Phenomena Escalating Worldwide


Published on May 7, 2013

SuspectSky SuspectSky

Over the past year the world has experienced unprecedented and bizarre weather phenomena – from record breaking heat and cold to increasing earthquake activity worldwide. It’s not just global warming, but rather, a system wide surge of strange weather activity.

This video compiles extreme earth changes and weather events, with footage including meteors entering the atmosphere, sinkholes opening up worldwide, the discovery of dark lightning, increasing volcano activity, and a uniquely unusual UFO sighting in Ireland.

While this video does NOT imply extreme weather is a result of human activity – it does suggest that climate change is real and occurring all around us. Whatever the source, one may ask – will extreme weather define our world’s history for decades to come?
