Experts say that snow is a thing of the past, and that spring snow cover is declining.

    It is globally cooling.
    Live with it.

    Rotten, hot snow, that prevents the Earth from cooling down.

    I see some white stuff in those photos. I am not familiar with that stuff; is it that artificial snow they use to ski on?

  5. Andy DC says:

    Every idiot knows that no snow, record snow and normal snow are all a result of Mann-made global warming and/or climate change. We are doomed!

    I hope a good amount of the fell west of the divide, the Colorado could use a lot more of it. personally, when some overestimate the average flow of the Colorado and build dam and canals based on the flawed estimate it is not a drought, it is human stupidity. All be it, it is easier to blame climate rather than stupidity, stupid is and stupid does. I do get tired of hearing that here in Arizona we are in a drought, drought if they really knew what a drought was the would need to build a time machine and got back a few centuries to see why the Anasazi left here many centuries ago.

      You forget ; anything that happened after the warmists were born, is
      UNPRESENTED , unusual. History is OLD stuff and is ignored. Like
      our Constitution.

    • ” … the Colorado could use a lot more of it.”

      Mark, I didn’t look at the detail precipitation tables but I’m afraid the Colorado River basin didn’t get much from the storm of March 23. It was a typical upslope spring storm. You may know the phenomenon but the “upslope” refers to the eastern slopes of the Rockies in the vocabulary of Front Range Coloradoans.

      These storms happen when a slow-moving, counterclockwise-spinning system lingers over the eastern plains and it keeps pushing moisture to the west against the mountains (in the upper half of the imagined clock dial). These eastern slope storms can be very heavy but hardly any precipitation makes it across the Continental Divide to the western slopes and the Colorado River headwaters.

    Ok a question for any of the meteorologists here. It has to do with winter weather but not in Colorado. For my job I sometimes drive in Canada. Almost always my route will take me along I-401 in Ontario. Driven the piece of that road between Windsor and Toronto probably 50 times or more in the last 7+ years.

    Along that route during the colder months the worst for winter weather is almost always along an approximate 40 mile stretch between Kitchener and Milton. If it isn’t snowing anywhere else there is a chance it will be right along that stretch of road just as it did on Monday this week when I drove it. If it is snowing other places the worst will usually be along that stretch of road. If it’s cold and raining if one is going to hit icing conditions it will most often be along that stretch of road. Yesterday (Thursday) I was running through rain headed east until I got to the vicinity of Kitchener and then within a mile all the vegetation was covered in white and road conditions icy. Toronto had gotten some ice and sleet but the worst of it was right where it usually is from Kitchener to Milton.

    Why?

    Oh and BTW I made three runs across that stretch of road this week working out of the terminal in Romulus, MI. First to Brampton, ON in the NW Toronto metropolitan area to deliver and then coming back west to Waterloo, ON and then from there back to Romulus, MI. Tough run because if anything slows you down much you can’t do within the 14 hours allowed.

    On Thursday I didn’t make it back because traffic was backed up on the bridge. At 03:20 I approached the ramp to US customs and the Ambassador bridge and via I-75 N. Saw the trucks lined up along the shoulder of I-75 and knew I was not going to make it. Took me 2 hours and 12 minutes from the time I pulled in at the end of the line until I got to the booth at Canadian customs on the other side of the bridge. This kind of thing happens quite frequently really. Once or twice a week sometimes but usually during heavy traffic hours with 03:30 is generally not. But Canada only had three lanes open at customs for the trucks so the miles long back up of big trucks.

    So the next time some Canadian or US politician starts blathering about pollution or the environment just picture in your head 200 big diesel trucks ideling along in long lines for hours because it happens all the time and those politicians have to know it does and that it’s been going on for decades and haven’t done a damned thing about it.
