Poisoned Weather In 1991

I lived in Richmond, TX during Christmas 1991 – a few blocks from the Brazos River. Our house was one of the few which didn’t flood. That may have been the biggest rainfall event in Texas history. One more big rain and the bridge on the Southwest Freeway would have washed out, and I would have had to stayed home alone with my incredibly hot Mexican fiancee for  few days.

Flood Report – 2001

I had no idea this was your fault until Brad Johnson kindly pointed it out.

    “… incredibly hot … ” We want pictures.

    Brad Johnson … poster boy for nitwit climate change = flood / drought & cold / hot! Everything … even an average day is now due to the satanic CO2 molecule in Brad’s Bizarro world 😉
    The stupid is strong in this one!!

    The big one that I remember the best was the October 17-19, 1994 Flood. It rained 15 inches in one day at my home, and homes in my area flooded in zones that had no flood history and therefore the owners did not have flood insurance. The October 1994 Flood is covered in your referenced article; here is another reference:

    I remember the flooding of the South Platte in Denver in 1965 and the Big Thompson flood in 1976 that killed 143 people, many of whom were never found. But that was before CAGW so I’m not sure who or what to blame. And the way our culture works today, we have to have someone or something to blame for everything. We can’t blame those who choose to live next to the creek in a narrow canyon, just like we can’t blame those who build on flood plains or in areas where hurricanes and tornadoes are prevalent. And when these areas are hit by some catastrophe or another, I get to pay the bill for rebuilding in the same area using the same methods using my taxes.

      You make a great point. No doubt those poor benighted people only build there because powerful white men have forced them to do so.

      I am reminded of the current water shortage in California. I really am a compassionate person — but acquiescence to stupidity only goes so far. My common response when the California water shortage is mentioned is, “Well, what did you expect? You have millions of people build a giant series of cities and farms in an area which naturally is mostly desert, and then keep bringing in more and more millions of people to suck up all the water — and so one day all the water is not enough! What would you expect?!”

    Spring of 1965
    Sophomore at Mankato State University.
    Cousin asks ‘Want to go sandbag?’ Sure!

    From dusk to dawn,, Hands blistered! about 15 blisters
    Damn, why didn’t this farm boy not bring gloves?

    At dawn, climbed to the top—Wow, water was about half a foot from the top
    Looked back at the top of heads about ten feet below me, looked back over the
    top again, then down again.
    Realized we could all be swimming in ice water in a hurry, but the dam held.

    Why the flood?
    Lots of snow, and then a very fast melt, while the ground was still frozen.
    Creeks ran, rivers ran, but down river (the Minnesota River where once the great
    River Warren drained the huge Lake Agassiz) , ice was jammed.
    For history buff’s Lake Agassiz was much larger than the five great lakes combined.
    and was formed after glacier melt about 12,000 years ago.
    Now that was some kind of climate change then, back in the day

    In the spring of 1965 water was nearly 18 feet above flood stage- for a while
    Then back to normal Weather happens

    In other not related, but very important news.
    MIT professor Richard Lindzen’s paper on the Atmospheric’ Iris’, is again gaining
    support.
    Basically it states that when there is more mid latitude moisture causing higher humidity
    it causes a reduction in Cirrus clouds.
    Note that Cirrus clouds are high clouds, formed mainly of ice.
    Therefore, they are transparent to incoming higher energy UV rays
    but nearly opaque to outgoing IR (heat) waves. Thus they tend to warm the earth.
    More cirrus, more warming, less cirrus less warming.
    Thus feedback from More CO2,( if it in fact causes more water vapor which is
    central to the AGW theory).,would be negative not positive, that is it would cause more
    cooling.
