Evidently, a warning has been issued about a developing winter storm for next week. This monster storm is going to be exactly like the ones that hammered us back in 1978. I remember those storms all too well. Tremendously. These were epic storms! Made travel in NYC nearly impossible. Only things moving were the underground parts of the subway systems. I had to dig a deep trench across the street so my daughter could play with Sam, her best friend back then.
Dr. Maue adds on his Twitter feed:
Exciting to see extreme weather forecasts with an item that requires dusting off the record books. 958 mb low
For reference, a 958 millibar low pressure system is as low as the central pressure for some tropical storms and nearly that of some hurricanes. For example Hurricane Sandy had a central pressure of 940 mbar or 27.76 inHg.

Instead, it is more and more like in the 1970’s there, too. As the planet cools off, we shall see more epic storms then we get fewer storms and lots of even colder cold weather which will be dry.

This video has former students talking about jumping out of windows into the huge snow drifts. My husband was one of them. They partied for a week since they were stuck in their dorms.
Mentioned in the news is this previous storm: Cleveland Superbomb of 1978
Meteorologists have a name for a storm that occurs when air pressure drops very rapidly as a jet stream brings in moisture: a weather bomb. In late January 1978, a low-pressure system moving from the Gulf Coast met with two other low-pressure systems, one from the Southwest and one from Canada, to create one of the worst snowstorms the Midwest has ever seen.
With barometric pressure so low, it was more like a hurricane than a snowstorm, the so-called Cleveland Superbomb dumped 1-3 ft. (30-90 cm) of snow on several Midwestern states, including Ohio, Indiana and Michigan. Wind gusts approached 100 m.p.h. (160 km/h), causing snowdrifts to reach heights of 25 ft. (8 m) in some areas. Such snowdrifts made roadways impassable, forcing doctors and emergency personnel to ski and snowmobile their way to those in need. Indiana’s governor sent tanks down I-65 to remove stranded trucks, while in Ohio, National Guard helicopters flew some 2,700 missions to help stranded drivers. About 70 deaths are attributed to the storm.
When that blizzard hit NYC, I was living in Park Slope. I was the super of my building for Mr. Cohen and was responsible for dealing with the blizzard which meant eventually digging out the sidewalk and front stoop as well as going on the roof with his son to clear the mountain of snow and ice off after the winds died down several days later.
During the blizzard, we watched the news on TV. At one point, they were talking about the high seas that were ripping at the coastal communities. They then showed this lady being carried out of her Victorian mansion on the shore with the fire department running a ladder to her bedroom window.
‘OMG! That’s Mrs. Nier!’ I yelled. I was distraught. I couldn’t call her, of course. The TV crew hung out as her home disappeared into the Atlantic Ocean. It just slid in and vanished!
Later, I managed to find her at her oldest son’s home in Queens. She said, ‘I was sleeping in bed when the dogs began to howl. I heard pounding on the back door and thought someone was breaking in. So I ran down the stairs and fell into the ocean! I ran back up and looked out the window and a huge pier log was ramming the back door with each wave. I thought I was going to die. My phone was dead but a neighbor called the fire department!’
When a winter storm from up north joins with a southern storm we get ‘Nor’easters’ which are very dangerous, powerful storms as strong as a hurricane but without an ‘eye’ because they form over land, not sea.
Nearly all of these storms end up slamming into England! Which will see severe snow, ice and violent seas. Not the balmy weather we were promised by global warmists.
