No Hurricanes: Farmer’s Almanac Predicts Very Cold Winter

Absolutely no hurricanes during august 2013

The trees are turning yellow and red very early this year.  August has been very cool as was much of the summer except for three weeks.  It has been raining a lot, too.  So I predicted, some time ago, a cold and snowy winter.  And the  #1 cause of this is the lack of sun spot activity.  And some volcanic action.  And I am not alone in making this prediction:

 

Winter is going to be much colder than normal and there’ll be a big storm for Super Bowl, predicts Farmers’ Almanac | Mail Online

 

Based on planetary positions, sunspots and lunar cycles, the almanac’s secret formula is largely unchanged since founder David Young published the first almanac in 1818.

 

Modern scientists don’t put much stock in sunspots or tidal action, but the almanac says its forecasts used by readers to plan weddings and plant gardens are correct about 80 percent of the time.

 

And that, in a nutshell, is why ‘scientists’ are in this case, stupid.  There is no way around this.  By pretending the sun is ‘neutral’ and ‘steady state’ they can’t make even the simplest future predictions.  When they are wrong they just pretend nothing happened.

 

Well, with the weather, wrong predictions are deadly. So far, this year, NOAA has had to back peddle their hurricane predictions.  Now, they say it will be less than normal.  I say, there is nothing happening.  No hurricanes, no even proto-storm systems, the Atlantic Ocean has gone nearly totally dry!

storms on land, none at sea

We see this in the two satellite photos taken by GOES.  The top one shows the water vapor and note how the Gulf of Mexico and the bulk of the Atlantic Ocean is ‘black’ meaning dry as a bones.

 

The second GOES picture shows storms in the Pacific and mainly over landmasses. There is the remains of a storm over the northern Atlantic but the bulk of rain is in Mexico, Arizona and Venezuela, etc.  There is barely a spritz of rain anywhere in the Gulf of Mexico.

 

I read the ‘scientists’ discussing the weather ineptly and it was very sad indeed.  They refuse to look at sun spot activity which is as dead as the hurricane system in the Atlantic and are puzzled about why this is happening.  The NOAA people said on the radio yesterday, ‘The oceans are warm so there should be storms.’  Which is an admission they are clueless as to what drives the weather.

 

The problem is, warm water is only one element in forming storms.  Wind and above all, high levels of radiation cause storms to form.  The sun shines on the water and on the clouds.  And if the radiation levels drop for some reason, we get no hurricanes.

 

I bet the main reason Columbus and others sailed westards and were not slain by hurricanes is due to them accidentally beginning to sail that direction at the same time as the Maunder Minimum so there were very few and sometimes no hurricanes.

 

A hundred years later and one after another began as the Maunder Minimum began to grow warmer again and this led to the destruction of Armadas left and right and bankrupted the Spanish empire with some help from pirates, of course.

    Here in the city, I’ve noticed some trees beginning to turn as well. And I’m sure it has felt warmer here than in your area.

    So the trees know something has changed.

    I find it hilarious that the media has been pushing scare stories of super storms since Sandy, telling everyone it was global change and this year was sure to be worse. Now things have gone dead. It was just like they were screaming about heat in years past then we were pummeled with snow.

    Leaves have begun to change here, too. We had a return of summer heat last week for 2-3 days, but the cooler weather is now back; upper 40’s-mid 50’s overnight, mid 70’s-80 during the day. I’ve also noticed, in addition to the quiet hurricane season, that it’s been a very quiet tornado season, as well.

    It looks more like fall outside this foggy, cold morning. The hummingbirds left yesterday which is two to four weeks earlier than usual. The dog and I saw a young coyote running in the field following the rutting deer and we gave chase.

    For those that garden / farm, How has yr summer growing season been?

    Ours was hit and miss. We got nice tomatos, kale, and strawberries (very nice!), but no broccoli or peas or green beans. The green beans and peas just dried up. No squash either.

    We got some really nice mushroom blooms (Shitake) and a lot of good herbs, which I have been drying and storing for winter.

    Yesterday I saw apples falling off a tree. I had to think for a moment, and then I realized that we better go early this year to the apple farm if we want to catch the havest in time. It feels strange to see apples falling in August.

    Coastal So Cal has been winter, for 10 months. Now summer is here. I have never seen the Marine layer so thick, for so many months.
    I am told it is global warming [ice caps melting].

    The apples from my 100 year old tree are falling, too. Ditto my in-law’s apple trees. Shedding the fruits very early, this is a mid to late September thing.

    Texas Police Hit Organic Farm With Massive SWAT Raid
    Via: Huffington Post:

    A small organic farm in Arlington, Texas, was the target of a massive police action last week that included aerial surveillance, a SWAT raid and a 10-hour search.

    Members of the local police raiding party had a search warrant for marijuana plants, which they failed to find at the Garden of Eden farm. But farm owners and residents who live on the property told a Dallas-Ft. Worth NBC station that the real reason for the law enforcement exercise appears to have been code enforcement. The police seized “17 blackberry bushes, 15 okra plants, 14 tomatillo plants … native grasses and sunflowers,” after holding residents inside at gunpoint for at least a half-hour, property owner Shellie Smith said in a statement. The raid lasted about 10 hours, she said.

    Local authorities had cited the Garden of Eden in recent weeks for code violations, including “grass that was too tall, bushes growing too close to the street, a couch and piano in the yard, chopped wood that was not properly stacked, a piece of siding that was missing from the side of the house, and generally unclean premises,” Smith’s statement said. She said the police didn’t produce a warrant until two hours after the raid began, and officers shielded their name tags so they couldn’t be identified. According to ABC affiliate WFAA, resident Quinn Eaker was the only person arrested — for outstanding traffic violations.

    Bad firewood stacking is DEADY. It becomes home to rattlers, black widows and skunks out west.
