Moscow Heatwave Update

Thousands of trucks and cars have been stuck on a major highway, some for more than two days, in a traffic jam dozens of kilometers (miles) long caused by heavy snow northwest of Moscow, Russian media reported on Sunday.

Police in the Tver region said field kitchens were operating on the road, but many drivers complained supplies never reached them and they were running out of gasoline to keep their engines running and heating on in subzero temperatures.

    now…if this was summer and a heat wave, media would be all over this! However, this is cold and snow, so its just ‘weather’

    There is a lot of wild winter weather taking place in the Northern Hemisphere. Both Europe and East Asia (China, Korea, Japan) are in for snow and extreme cold over the next week. Fairbanks, AK has been averaging nearly 30 degrees below normal. Also turning much colder over most of the US during the next week or so.

    The Weather Channel was having a hissy fit this morning about the “heat wave” in the US. Better enjoy it while it lasts!

    ESA strangely chose today to inform the world of the record lowest June Eurasian snow extent since satellite observations began some 45 years ago:

    Something tells me Doha may have influenced ESA’s pathetically cherry-picked report.
