This is silly. Heavy snowstorms didn’t happen until CO2 hit 350ppm.

    A couple quick searches:

    2nd link not updated to include first link, but shows 1931.
    We almost broke the record this Groundhog Day, 13 feet seemed a bit deep 🙂

    13.7 feet (164.4 inches) of snow in 36 hours = 4.5 inches per hour. Holy lake effect Batman.

    I wonder if Buffalo has got this record beat?

    Poor Chile and Argentina as they suffer from both low and high CO2 snowfalls. Recent heavy snowfall has caused the closure of the Los Libertadores border crossing that connects Santiago, Chile to Mendoza, Argentina.

    Steven,
    Why did you delete my comment from yesterday, I only intended to alert you to an obviously wrong newspaper article.
    There was no mocking, only some data.
    I live in Chicago, i knew it was wrong.

    PLEASE DELETE AFTER READING THIS, STEVEN.

    FUCK, I HATE TO MAKE MISTAKES TOO.

    BUT, NOW YOU GOT “BLADE” TO DEAL WITH.

    MODS, DO NOT POST THIS !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    peace.

      u.k.(us) …

      Dude it’s all good!

      If an old newspaper article is incorrect, I doubt Steve is going to mod a post to remove it. It’s history, no sweat! Besides, we definitely don’t want people elsewhere to be purging ‘incorrect’ stuff from the archives, too Soviet, and imagaine if the AGW crowd could do this (oh wait, MWP, LIA, 1934 …).

      I was just asking if Buffalo had it beat, only curious. There are lots of snow records around the Great Lakes as you probably know better than most people.

      If I were you I would have just posted stuff to refute or correct the incorrect newspaper article. It is probably available over at Trove if you feel like searching.

      No worries.
