We had well over a foot of snow here on my mountain and in Western Mass., double that. Millions of people along the Northeast lost power due to branches that still had leaves, falling onto wires. One man was electrocuted by fallen wires, a friend of ours, fleeing their home in Conn. had a tree branch fall on their windshield, breaking it. This is most unusual to have this sort of cold and snow before Halloween. The fact that we had not one but two entirely different snow storms in less than 5 days is extremely unusual.
The track of this latest storm followed the same track most of the previous, very snowy winter followed. That is, the storm forms over the central Southeast or the Gulf and then joins a storm moving from the Great Plains and West Coast to balloon into a huge snow storm event when it reaches Washington, DC. This happens to be the same track our hurricanes took this year, too. No surprise that this track is continuing.
The ENSO ocean temperature models has a lot to do with this, that is, the Pacific Ocean off of Peru is welling up cold water, not an El Nino warm water event. Meanwhile, the Atlantic is warm whereas the Gulf of Mexico has been quite hostile to hurricanes. Even the last hurricane that menaced Mexico petered out when it strayed into the Gulf of Mexico and turned around and fled to warmer waters!
So, I expect this to be a most snowy winter due to the ocean conditions coupled with volcanic activity in the Northern Hemisphere as well as ongoing burps from various volcanoes in South America, Africa and Asia. Sufficient fine volcanic dust and chemicals in the high stratosphere will create snowy conditions in North America and Europe. This, of course, doesn’t fit the global warming models too well.
Tonight, for example, it is going down to 17 degrees which is January weather. This isn’t snow and then melting fast due to it being unusually warm. This is…brrrr….very cold indeed. Worse, Thursday and Friday: more snow! This is NOT normal at all but then, when we had volcanic activity in the past, such as mega-eruptions, there are no summers and this happened in the last 200 years, too, not the far, distant-mastadon past but during the Napoleonic Wars era.
I warned the global warming people to not ignore volcanoes. I warned them all that if they don’t come honestly to people when discussing this topic, all we needed was one volcanic eruption and people would turn on the scientists. Instead, the global warming people tried to eliminate the Little Ice Age, for example. Explain it away. This was a fatal mistake, one that still hasn’t been rectified. That is, apologized for even trying to to erase this important history of our climate.
So here we are: people are grumbling about too much snow and it isn’t even Halloween, yet. And I was out snowplowing today in deep snow, worried sick that this is a harbinger for a hard winter.
