The Armistice Day Blizzard Of 1940 : CO2 320 ppm

The Armistice Day Blizzard (or the Armistice Day Storm) took place in the Midwest region of the United States on 11 November (Armistice Day) and 12 November 1940. The intense early-season “Panhandle hook” winter storm cut a 1,000-mile-wide (1600 km) path through the middle of the country from Kansas to Michigan.

Snowfalls of up to 27 inches (69 cm), winds of 50 to 80 mph (80–130 km/h), 20-foot (6.1 m) snow drifts, and 50-degree Fahrenheit (30 °C) temperature drops were common over parts of the states of Nebraska, South Dakota, Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan. In Minnesota, 27 inches (69 cm) of snow fell at Collegeville, and the Twin Cities recorded 16 inches (41 cm). Record low pressures were recorded in La Crosse, Wisconsin and Duluth, Minnesota.[3] Transportation and communications were crippled, which exacerbated finding the dead and injured. The Armistice Day Blizzard ranks #2 in Minnesota’s list of top-5 weather events of the 20th century.[4]

* No one got hysterical and tried to blame it on global warming.

    Why would any one blame AGW as AGW had not been invented yet. Now we can thank Holdren for providing a new cause: AGCD.

  2. Brendon says:


    AGW theory doesn’t say that storms never happened in the past.

    Do not forget the Blizzard of 1888 in New York.CO2 was then only 280 ppmv

  4. Mike Davis says:

    You are right:
    The AGW theory does not say that storms did not happen in the past. The latest AGW theory says that some thing will happen and we will be advised after it occurs that it was caused by AGW and that it proves the existence of AGW. The recent Tsunamis have been consistent with the AGW theory as were the recent earthqakes. If I remember correctly the Shoemaker-Levy incident was related to AGW.

  5. Mike Davis says:

    There is evidence of that happening everyday.

    A little tidbit of information about that terrible storm. It killed 100% of the red delicious apple trees and most of the nortern spy apple trees in Iowa and other northern states. It did not do any good to the rhode island greenings either.
