This is due to climate change, because they never have hailstorms in Colorado

On July 11, 1990, a severe thunderstorm developed near Estes Park and traveled southeast, dropping golf ball to baseball sized hail, in a swath that was at times, 5 to 10 miles wide.

Losses totaled over $600 million, at the time, making it the costliest hailstorm in state history

    “This is due to climate change, because they never have hailstorms in Colorado.”

    It’s a well known fact that Climastrologists have the attention span of a gnat.

    OT but of interest to all of us:
    A Special Counsel to Investigate the IRS Targeting of Tea Party Groups

    On July 30, 1974, President Nixon released the White House tape recordings to comply with a U.S. Supreme Court order. A day earlier, the House Judiciary Committee approved Articles of Impeachment. Article 2 dealt with “abuse of power.” The first impeachment count, 40 years ago, complained that the President attempted to use the Internal Revenue Service to harass his enemies….

    Note that the charge was not that the President had caused the IRS to engage in discriminatory enforcement of the tax laws. No, the claim was that the President had tried, unsuccessfully, to do so. I remember the incident better than most because I was assistant majority counsel to the Senate Watergate Select Committee.….

    We all will agree on the seriousness of any claim that any federal official has ever tried to use the IRS to harass those perceived to be political opponents, because such actions undercut our faith in a nonpartisan IRS. Our tax system is largely voluntary: we report our income and list our deductions. When the people lose faith in the IRS, we are all the worse. Thus, we should all be happy if the President is correct when he assured us that there is “not even a smidgen of corruption” regarding Lois G. Lerner and the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups.

    The problem is that there is more than a smidgen of corruption……

    Interesting read by Ronald D. Rotunda, a Distinguished Professor of Jurisprudence, at Chapman University, Fowler School of Law.

    Good eye on the old dendritic.

    I think we got you beat …

    No mention of “Climate Change” at the time …

    I used to read comic books called Asterix (they were in French). The villagers who lived in Roman times were scared of the sky falling on their heads. I used to laugh every time it was mentioned. The alarmists remind me of these antics. Unfortunately, their antiquated notions (every generation since the beginning of time has had a group of crazies prediction catastrophic climate) are just silly.

    My ’57 Ford convertible was one of many cars trashed in Iowa City by hail. I think it was this storm: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/May_1968_tornado_outbreak

  8. Gary H says:

    I recall driving from Castle Rock to Denver (north on I-25) back in the early 1970’s (when global cooling was in vogue) when a tremendous summer thunderstorm laid it out for us. I was in my 1966 MGB, and within a couple of minutes, as the previously 90 degree summer afternoon was transformed into a white winter looking wonderland – my car ground to a stop in the middle of the interstate as it bottomed out on the 15-18 inch deep hail.

    Been there. Done that. W/o AGW in the picture.

    • Gail Combs says:

      I am going to have to replace my roof (house) because of the hail damage done this year. It is rather interesting that Wunderground does not show that hail storm so there is no ‘proof’ to show insurance companies.

      • nielszoo says:

        I’m really starting to doubt that Wunderground is connected to anything that actually monitors weather conditions. According to them my pastures are not flooded ’cause we’ve only had “trace” rainfall instead of the 1/2″ to 1″ daily. The only good thing about that site is their multi level radar and sat map. Radar plus aerial and road maps make it easier to figure out how long I have to get to the feed store and back without getting rained on.

        • Gail Combs says:

          I only use them because of their radar maps and for the same reason. We can figure out how long before we get rained on. As far as forecasts or history goes they are liars working to promote CAGW.

  9. Stephen Richards says:

    Can you insure against hail in the US. It happens so often, much more frequent than in europe.

    • John F. Hultquist says:

      Yes. Our only hail claim was for damaged (dents) metal siding on a house in Iowa. I think that storm was in 1973.

  10. Old Goat says:

    Pah – that’s nothing.

    In the Former UK, they’ve had the “driest” September since, er, “records began” (1910 – ish), and it’s been mild, too. They are calling it “Extreme weather”. I can’t wait to see what happens when it next rains.

    • QV says:

      After 28 days!
      With another 2 days of rain, it may not be the “driest”.
      Don’t ask me why the MO can’t wait until the end of the month.

    Climate Disaster In Congress

    Time is running out for Congress to extend more than 50 tax breaks worth nearly $85 billion, including popular ones for college expenses and energy-efficient appliances.

    They never have any weather near the Front Range. Everyone from Colorado knows that. LOL.

    We should put a tax on farmers who continue let their cows fart and contribute to global warming…
