I’d be worried about all the snow meaning it was cold, but we’ve been told this is the new Global Warming hot snow, so no worries… /sarc;

  1. A C Osborn says:

    According to IceAgeNow West Virginia had 18″ in 4 hours and it was still snowing.

    In Europe it does not appear to be quite so bad, the UK expects some more cold coming in at the weekend.

  2. oldbrew says:

    Has all this snow been diverted from the ‘rapidly shrinking’ glaciers we keep hearing about?

  3. cdquarles says:

    25th anniversary of the “Blizzard of ’93” baby. Next week’s forecast is for us to have mid-70s.

  4. Larry Ledwick says:

    Meanwhile desert south west is in drought conditions, with the Denver metro area having the second lowest snow total to date in our historical record.

  5. R.de Haan says:

    Weatherbell’s Joe Bastardi this weekend had a video up explaining that we had similar weather conditions in 1962. So no pending ice age signal yet and certainly no Global Warming signal unless you’re a total idiot. So nothing to worry about, everything is within earlier experienced parameters and we all survived.

    Hmmm winter of 1962-63 was brutally cold here in the Rockies and could be considered the transition point into the very cold and snowy winters of the 1970’s and early 1980’s.

    Will be interesting to see if the current snow blitz on the coasts persists and spreads into a cold blitz for the interior states in the next year or two.

    As I recall in that cold period there were several winters which frost nipped the orange crops in the south (sort of like iguanas falling out of trees in a cold stupor lately).

    I remember my Mom buying up frozen orange juice concentrate during those cold snaps, anticipating the rise in price and reduced availability that would follow.

  7. R.de Haan says:

    I think it was February/March 1962, the Big Winter as it was called in the UK and the Netherlands.
    Bastardi now has other historic maps up: weatherbell.com

  8. R.de Haan says:

    Sorry, failed to finish my sentence, The big Winter was that of 1962/1963. I remember that very well. Massive snows, -24 degrees frosts for a really long period, frozen mains, frozen toilets.
    Visits to the North Sea Coast, frozen North Sea, taking a ride in the car crossing frozen lakes.
    We really need such a winter to freeze out the Warmista’s for good.

  9. Larry Ledwick says:

    Yes I remember it being cold enough then that they allowed ice fishing on a couple of the municipal park lakes in north Denver. Normally it does not get cold enough, long enough for the ice to get suffeciently thick to drive or walk out on the lakes around here. Of course back then it was more acceptable for people to accept risk, they would probably never approve it now.

    I live near Sarasota/Bradenton Florida. I have a heater on, on the porch, for the 3rd straight week. Take that as you may. Burrrrrr! 40 or less tonight!

  11. E.M.Smith says:

    IIRC, ’62 ’63 was when it snowed in my home town on the Calif. Central Valley floor. 32 feet elevation. I’ve only known it to snow there a couple of times. Another was about ’72 or so. Then again couple of years ago in Sacramento.

    I’m watching for when snow happens every couple of years there as a real marker for glacial onset.

    @Ossqss:

    Don’t say that! I have fantasies of warm Florida and I want to keep them! ;-)

    (Presently overcast and cold, drippy, on the west coast… heater on…)

  12. p.g.sharrow says:

    I remember the winter of 62-63. I was 16 and agreed to feed a nearby ranchers’s cattle for the Christmas weekend while he spent the holiday at his son’s ranch in central Nevada. Just after he left it SNOWED! big time. He was snowed in. After the snow it got very cold and his diesel tractor would not start. Good thing he had taught me how to harness and hitch his team of horses. For the next 10 days the horses and I had to fight the cold and snow to feed 2 tons of hay to his near 300 cattle every day. Good thing the horses knew their job. They would stop at the gate of the field, let me open the gate, pull the wagon thru the gate and stop for me to mount the wagon, then traverse the field while I scattered the hay to the waiting cattle. They would avoid the ditches and fences, something the tractor wouldn’t do and return us to the gate so we could go to the next feeding area. Good thing he got home after the New Years weekend so I didn’t have to do school as well…pg

    @OManuel:

    Interesting link, especially the graph of total time an astronaut can stay in space. Curious that female times are so much shorter than males. One wonders why.

    But it says nothing about extinction, so your comment seems a bit disconnected from it. In fact, the 200 day to 300 day deep space exposure limits even at high rates are still a long time. Down here on the surface it ought to be proportional so in prior cycles it was about 1/4 to 1/3 longer eyeballing the graphs. Not seeing how even a 50% increase in ground level cosmic rays is going to change my health.

    It is more likely that with decreasing feature sizes in memory cells, we’ll have more computer errors as we are already in a zone where cosmic rays can have an effect and occasionally flip bits. ECC (Error Correcting) memory likely to be more important “going forward” (unless they find other ways to protect the memory state).

  14. p.g.sharrow says:

    at this moment, the ground is turning white under a pea size hail down pour here at 2000ft elevation…pg

  15. E.M.Smith says:

    But tell us; Is it a warm hail? /snicker;

  16. Jeff says:

    Is it hotter ‘n Hail? :)

    68 was when it snowed in Oceanside. the 60s were a snowy time for California.
