But at the news story site for Oklahoma is this story: One Drop at a Time: Current drought worse than the Dust Bowl – KSWO, Lawton, OK- . Even NOAA doesn’t have Oklahoma listed as ‘drought.’ Here is the March drought map, there isn’t one more recent. The drought in Northern California and Nevada, etc. has seen lots of storms and particularly, snow, even TODAY and for tomorrow.
This map from yesterday shows all the snow falling out West. The Northeast has been somewhat drier than usual but this March map doesn’t show the considerable snow that fell from March through April. Texas is downright wet and Oklahoma is pretty much wet now, too. Floods, even.
The big, big clue here is this: it is drier during colder cycles. Not wetter. What moisture does fall, often is ice or snow. Nova Scotia Agriculture Decimated – Video – Ice Age Now: two long, severe, super cold winters has decimated crops in Canada.

During the 1984-2004 warm cycle, wineries were planted in Northern New York and into southern Canada. It appears that only 1% of the Niagara grapes survived this last winter blasts. The Arctic and Antarctic are both getting more and deeper ice. Yes, a gravity satellite shows a gravity change in the South Pole but it isn’t due to it melting when it is -60ºF. It is due to volcanic activity. The sun is still showing activity with a number of sun spots heating things up temporarily and we have a weak el Nino happening in summer, not during winter as it should.
UN demands Australia stop mining coal which is funny because China is a huge consumer of this coal as is Japan. The new government of England is the Tories who will probably halt the rush towards ending modern civilization there.
Last in the news: a big bear came to my strong, steel bird feeder and completely destroyed it. The birds were very upset about this and I rigged up a new feeding system which is very high up and the bears can’t get to, I hope. Hungry bears are dangerous animals indeed!
Last night, the skunk and the raccoon visited but had to eat off the ground since everything else was out of reach.
