Boulder Colorado Many Homes Burn In High Winds Roaring Off Rocky Mountains

The well named ‘jet stream’ is going across the USA at the 9000 meter elevation at over 160 miles per hour!  At sea level, there is nearly no wind at all but go into the Rocky Mountains or any mountains and it is extremely high.  I lived on mountain top observatories in my childhood and yes, you can get blown off the mountain in winds like this while the valley is relatively quiet below!;-81.7;3&l=wind-300hpa

Air transport when the jet stream (given this name due to the fact that jets flew this high and experienced this winds in the 1950’s) is very high, jets flying eastwards make good time while jets flying westwards struggle against the windflow and can be delayed due to this and use much more fuel, flying.


This shows sea level winds which means there is a hurricane in the Atlantic Ocean offshore of England, France and Spain:;-100.9;3&l=temperature-2m


This map shows huge waves around the gyre that covers nearly the entire Atlantic Ocean between Canada and Europe:


Here is an example of this sort of wave activity from earlier this year (which has been quite a stormy year) in the Atlantic Ocean:


International shipping struggles when there are huge waves like we see this winter:


There is this twin gyre in the Pacific causing high waves between Japan, Siberia and Alaska.


Boulder, Colorado is very vulnerable to these sort of wind/fire events due to the Rocky Mountains which rise to the west of the city.


Here is a satellite map of the fire region: the two red icons are where the fire started and to the west of the city of Boulder, Colorado is the high mountains with snow on them.  The wind, when the jet stream blows from west to east, accelerates as it roars off of the mountain peaks and into the flat valley below:



Where I live in the mountains in NY, the valleys cross north to south, not just east to west so high winds that touch the mountain tops doesn’t come anywhere near our valleys except on rare occasions.


My concerns about the fast moving fires in a region that often has these sorts of high wind events like California, too.  Namely, if you look closely, the fires often move, in high winds, from house to house not even singing any trees, for example!  Only when the house is fully on fire does it cause trees right next door to burn, too.  I notice this in all videos of high wind/ house fire events.


I blame air conditioners and ventilation systems that can’t be shut down and isolated so they don’t suck in flaming embers!  I proposed long ago that houses should have exterior roof sprinkler systems to stop fires, for example.  California is now shutting down electrical transmissions during high wind storms due to these causing so many flash fires!


I suppose Colorado doesn’t do this.  This is from two weeks ago:


All this is because we are in a la Nina event.  During la Ninas, Arizona has lush winter greenery from many storms:


It may even snow in the valley in Tucson!  This happened a lot during the 1960’s when we had a volcanic eruption and then a la Nina event!  The eastern half of the US is unusually warm and the western half is enjoying violent, frequent storms and it is as cold in Arizona or colder than New York at this very hour today!  HAHAHA.


I find this funny, of course, I get to feel funny about this.  I do feel sorry for people who built wooden houses on the Rocky Mountain hillsides which is prime territory for brush fires in high winds.  My parent’s ranch was built with thick Mexican adobe bricks!  You can’t burn it if you tried.


One pet peeve I have is plastic siding: it has zero strength unlike wood siding of the old sort which strengthens a building greatly, modern houses have plywood instead of 3/4″ wood planks for siding which is much weaker than wood planks, the inner walls are sheets of sheet rock unlike the wood strips covered with thick plaster!


Overall, modern houses are very, very flimsy.  I often refer to modern houses as ‘a house of cards’ due to cheap building practices and materials used these days!  They all look big and strong and safe and are useless in truly bad weather like hurricanes, etc.

    “Arizona or colder than New York at this very hour today! HAHAHA.”

    “I find this funny, of course, I get to feel funny about this. ”

    Nice to know you find this “funny” EMS! You are after all a sadist.

    “I’m a climate scientist. Don’t Look Up captures the madness I see every day
    Peter Kalmus

    A film about a comet hurtling towards Earth and no one is doing anything about it? Sounds exactly like the climate crisis

    The movie Don’t Look Up is satire. But speaking as a climate scientist doing everything I can to wake people up and avoid planetary destruction, it’s also the most accurate film about society’s terrifying non-response to climate breakdown I’ve seen.”

    But here we have EMS the hack trying to explain to the few readers (dimwits) reading her blog (excluding SteveM & Zeke) her unscientific, kooky magic, kooky tarot cards, non-evidentiary version of science.

    I WISH your father was alive today so you could tell him how stupid he and all other scientists are! He would be embarrassed beyond belief and rightfully so!!

    Hate to break it to ya EMS but your mental gymnastics are failing big time! Your self-appointed prescience is tanking fast!! You will very soon be eating your words and I pray I am around to witness it!

    It will be very entertaining to watch! Ramp it up baby! Hell you may even get to Rittenhouse rockstar status! Wouldn’t you just LOVE that!

    I mean just go to the DailyMail for full indication that the world is in full depravity mode! A veritable race to the bottom! And from what I can tell it’s WHITE people that are FULLY responsible for it!

    They had the power, they blew it, and now they want to blame “others”.

    GFY! (could mean Good For You)!

    Here’s a good research project for ya @lou to give a break from your vaxx shit.

    How many “colored” men are on Epstein’s flight logs? How many of the trafficked girls were “colored”?

    White men have pillaged this planet beyond belief and all EMS can cry about is a few “colored” protesters smashing some windows. OH dear boohoo!

    They are desperate for justice and what else gets the “rulers” and racists to notice besides destroying their prized “possessions”?

    Desperate times calls for desperate measures – too stupid to understand this?


    ELAINE: Tina, you are both stupid and evil.

    And that is a bad combination, indeed.

    ”I blame air conditioners and ventilation systems that can’t be shut down and isolated so they don’t suck in flaming embers”

    that’s exactly right , making it hard to build fire proof homes , which are needed

  5. I have a few close friends in the part of Philippines hit by the recent super-typhoon. CNN isn’t exaggerating the destruction.
    “Located along the typhoon belt in the western Pacific Ocean, the Philippines regularly experiences big storms — but the climate crisis has caused these events to become more extreme and unpredictable.
    “As the climate crisis worsens, cyclones are becoming more intense and destructive. Rai evolved rapidly from the equivalent of a Category 1 to a Category 5 storm in just 24 hours, packing winds of up to 260 kilometers (160 miles) per hour.”
    “The roofs of every house were flying everywhere,” the mother of seven said as she sat amid the ruins of her home. “Our house was the first one to collapse.
    First the roof flew off. Then the foundation crumbled. After my house was destroyed, my mother’s house collapsed.”
    All of the family’s food was destroyed by floods. Their stock of rice — a staple for the Southeast Asian country — was floating in muddy water next to
    broken pieces of wood. Sayson’s children’s clothes are ruined from the rain, and her furniture reduced to fragments.
    Sayson’s kitchen appliances were stolen in the aftermath. She cannot afford to rebuild from scratch, she said.

    “How many “colored” men are on Epstein’s flight logs?”
    Maybe Epstein did not want to get plane jacked.
    “How many of the trafficked girls were “colored”?”
    You sound disappointed.

    “White men have pillaged this planet beyond belief”
    Historically and traditionally, pillaging does not respect colour or creed.
    “cry about a few “colored” protesters smashing some windows. OH dear boohoo!”
    Its the massive and escalating crime wave associated with it though, you know, the looting, the killings, the music.

    “They are desperate for justice”
    So am I.
    “what else gets the “rulers” and racists to notice besides destroying their prized “possessions”?”
    The rulers do notice, they like their orders being obeyed. The rulers prized possessions are not being destroyed, you go near their stuff at your peril.

    “Desperate times calls for desperate measures – too stupid to understand this?”
    Yes, you are right, I understand you very well.

    This document does a pretty good job of presenting the evidence of the biggest crime in the history of humanity:

    Here is a link to the video presentation of the report:
    Folk, this proves that Pfizer is the most ruthless mafia in human history, and these ghouls and their agents are currently running the US government and all major media and financial systems and are in the process of attempting a world wide corporate takeover.

    Yes my dear prescient & all-knowing EMS the virus is going away You are always so RIGHT!

    Georgia deploys National Guard to hospitals and testing centers as the state reports record-high COVID cases

    Georgia reported a single-day high of 13,670 COVID-19 cases on Tuesday.

    @#3 TinaB: What does the lack of Blacks on the Epstein Flight logs REALLY say? Epstein was a Pimp to The Powerful and to Celebrities. Epstein had no incentive to cater to Blacks. Why bother? And Estein likely used his Pimping services in order to Blackmail the powerful. No point in trying to blackmail the non Powerful.

  13. Dummies here who hate me have to be constantly stupid.

    We have RECORD NEW CASES of Covid and…NO HIKE IN DEATHS.

    I keep pointing out the obvious which leftists ignore due to being crazy. And stupid.

  14. lou

    14–No hikes in deaths. hmmmm. Colds flus pneumonia. and now corona.
