Maryland Extreme Ice Survey

I took my team of intrepid researchers out to explore Chesapeake Bay ice this afternoon, and my very worst fears were realized. It is all first year ice, and unlikely to survive through the summer.

The dire consequence of this is that Maryland Polar Bears will have to swim for miles to avoid having to pay tolls on the bridge.

    As big a problem as Polar Bears are in Maryland, I would be more worried about rats crossing the ice.

  2. Anything is possible says:

    If this trend continues, the ice is unlikely to make it through the weekend………

    …….and by next Wednesday, Maryland will be hotter than the surface of Venus.

    Be very alarmed.

    We can’t explain the lack of ice in Chesapeake Bay in the Summer and it’s a travesty that we can’t.

    My 7 1/2 month old explorer companion just got spayed yesterday so is not up for much outside fun, though she sure thinks she is until she moves wrong and whimpers a little. Right now she is beside me in a window seat with a south exposure dozing in a sunbeam. Perfect place for her as she recovers.

    She’s our third Cocker and is a wonderful loving pup. Chocolate Merle with white markings.

    On the plus side, they can stop at the plazas for a Cinnabun or crab cake.

    Ozone Forecast shows that winter will not abandon so quickly the northern-eastern US.

    The edge of the yellow area shows the course of the jet stream.

      Note that all skeptical comments on SciAm comment threads are quickly removed. Shameful. I am cancelling my subscription once and for all. I have ben reading this magazine since the 1960’s, when my librarian aunt used to bring me old issues as the library discarded them. I gave up on it a few times, only to relent and buy a subscription again, but no more.
      Enough is enough.

  7. Obviously, you’re off in the East. Today’s (Sat, 7 March) Denver Post has an incredible article about Ft. Collins. “The city will spend $600 million to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.”
    Strongly advise you not drink the water when you get back; obviously a strong hallucinogenic therein.
    ” ‘This will be very, very costly. It will require sacrifices and willingness to pay’ Ft. Collins Mayor Karen Weitkunat said. We haven’t laid out how specifically to achieve it.”

    Steve, presumably you were making a parody about this:

  9. Andy DC says:

    The Capital Weather Gang stated that there has not been this much ice on Chesapeake Bay so late in the season since 1780. If it somehow survives ths summer, we are all in big trouble!

    Is that a Standard Poodle?
