FLASHBACK - ‘Gender-Equal Snow Ploughing’ Plunges Stockholm into Chaos

Previously, fresh snowfalls were cleared first from main roads and by areas like construction sites before being removed from pavements and cycle lanes. As men are more likely to drive and women more likely to travel on foot, more women slipped on the ice which led to complaints that the system was sexist.

Vice-mayor of Stockholm, the Green Party’s Daniel Helldén, admitted that “equality snow removal” had failed the city, and apologised to residents who had injured themselves as a result.

When the Red-Green coalition, comprising politicians from the Social Democratic Party, Green Party, Left Party, and Feminist Initiative, were elected to City Hall in 2014 the introduction of a “feminist” snow clearance was high on the agenda.

'Cyclone of historic proportions' hits U.S., sets barometric pressure records, strands over 1 100 drivers and leaves nearly 200 000 without power

Powerful winter storm rapidly intensified over the central United States on Wednesday, March 13, 2019, producing blizzard conditions and widespread hurricane-force wind gusts. Over 1 100 drivers were stranded, at least one person has been killed and nearly 200 000 left without power.

The storm across the central Plains will continue to bring blizzard conditions to parts of the northern Plains and Rockies through Thursday, where travel remains difficult, the National Weather Service warns. Heavy rain, snowmelt, and ice jams on rivers have produced widespread flooding across the Upper Midwest. Meanwhile, severe storms with damaging winds, hail, and tornadoes are possible from the Great Lakes to the South.

It's snowing heavily on Dartmoor - no, REALLY

In a stark contrast to the grim, wet weather Storm Gareth has brought elsewhere in Devon, SNOW has blanketed parts of Dartmoor today.

Below freezing temperatures on the highest parts of the moors, particularly in the Postbridge area, has seen sleet suddenly turn into snow and settle.

Photographs show Hookney Tor thick with the white stuff this morning, captured by local resident Mark Shackleton.

Other tors, including Higher White tor and Hameldown tor, can be seen topped with snow from a distance.

Spring Sports Begin, Snow Fills Most Fields

February's record snowfall still covers most of the high school baseball, softball, and lacrosse fields across the Northland.

"There's nothing better than a softball game in 60 degree weather and the sun coming out," shared Dan Stauber, Activities Director for Proctor.

But that day is a few weeks out, to be sure. Their first baseball game at Egerdahl is slated for April 4th.

Snow again?!? Winter is determined not to go down without a fight

Winter has but a little over a week left on the calendar...and it is just not going down without a fight.

Some surprise snow fell across parts of the far North Sound and in the Cascade foothills early Tuesday morning as the lingering effects of a cold front that swept through overnight brought a Puget Sound Convergence Zone and that knocked snow levels down to a few hundred feet again.

The "Bomb Cyclone" Is Back And It's Ready To Explode Into A Hurricane

A powerful winter storm is forecasted "to intensify explosively" in the southwest US on Tuesday into Wednesday, unleashing a wide array of life-threatening weather hazards for tens of millions of Americans, reported Axios.

The impact area is expected from North Texas through the Dakotas and Minnesota is expected to be hit the hardest. The storm will likely qualify as a meteorological "bomb" — short for bombogenesis, which describes storms whose central pressure drops 24 millibars in 24 hours. The lower the pressure and the quicker it drops, the more powerful the storm. This could be one for the record books.

FLASHBACK 2015 - Guess Who's Reaping Hundreds of Billions From Iraq's Oil?

I listened to John Kerry’s optimistic speech at the COP21 Paris climate talks about how the United States is allegedly stepping up to the financial challenge to help poor countries that are or will be facing life-threatening consequences from catastrophic climate change disasters with a sense cynicism.

Some might argue that it is possible that President Obama and John Kerry are trying, but their powers are limited for the reason that they owe their allegiance to the petroleum and weapon industries.

But why then would the US government spend trillions of dollars on missiles, drones, fighter jets, and an infinite supply of bombs to gain oil control in the Middle East if the White House and Congress cared about transitioning from fossil fuels?

Denver weather: Midweek storm could drop 6 inches of snow in Denver, 15 inches in mountains

Warmer temperatures reaching the mid-60s by Tuesday will soon be forgotten after a storm system drops rain and then snow in the middle of the week, according to forecasters.

The high temperatures in the first part of the week will be around 54 on Monday and 64 on Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service in Boulder.

Scattered snow will fall in the Colorado’s high country on Monday.

A northeasterly storm system will bring rain Tuesday night and early Wednesday. Between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Wednesday it could start snowing, the NWS says.

Geologist Accuses Apple of Political Bias in Removing App Countering Climate Alarmism

Political figures who support the so-called Green New Deal and other proposals to restrict carbon dioxide emissions are up against some “inconvenient facts” that Americans may access immediately through a smartphone application, a geologist and author says.

But there’s one big problem.

The app, called Inconvenient Facts, is available only to Android users through the Google Play Store. Since March 4, users of Apple’s iPhone no longer can access the app through the tech giant’s App Store.

Why is that?

‘Immediate Harm To Millions’: AFL-CIO Tears Apart Green New Deal

The largest organization of labor unions in the U.S. slammed the Green New Deal Friday for combating climate change by threatening the livelihoods of millions of Americans.

The AFL-CIO sent a letter on Friday to Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey, the two lawmakers leading the Green New Deal push in Congress. The labor group demanded a larger role in crafting future solutions, slamming the current proposal as “not achievable or realistic.”

Powerful winter storm to impact U.S. with heavy snow, severe thunderstorms, heavy to excessive rain and widespread strong winds

A powerful late-season winter storm will lift up into the Four Corners region on Tuesday, March 12 and then rapidly intensify across the central Plains on Wednesday, March 13, 2019. A number of hazards are expected from this powerful system: heavy snow with likely blizzard conditions, severe thunderstorms, heavy to excessive rain with an increasing flood threat across the Midwest and Mississippi Valley and widespread strong winds.

The strong mid to upper level closed low moving from northwest Mexico/Southwest U.S. Tuesday into the Southern to Central Plains Wednesday and Thursday will be the driver for a very active weather pattern over large portions of the nation over the next few days, NWS forecaster Oravec noted 07:25 UTC (03:25 EST), March 12.

Minnesota Judge Issues Injunction Against Old Man Winter, Banning Any More Snow

A Minnesota judge has not only complained about the weather—he decided to do something about it.

In a March 7 order, Judge Kevin Burke issued an injunction barring any more snow this winter in specified areas of Minnesota—especially in Hennepin County where he presides. Above the Law, WCCO and the Star Tribune have coverage. Burke identified the plaintiffs as the citizens of Minnesota, represented by the law firm of “Sue, Grabit, and Run.

The defendants were listed as “Minnesota Meteorologists, Old Man Winter and Mr. Snow.”

It's Our Turn: Sick of the white stuff

I've always kind of liked snow and winter. But this year is taking its toll.

It seems like every day we get more snow that needs to be shoveled and put somewhere. With all the snow piled up along the edges of roads and walkways, I'm starting to feel like a rat trapped in a white maze.

A couple of weeks ago, I finally got around to clearing the snow off the roof of my house. For the last month or so it was blowing off and didn't look too deep. But after the last heavy snow, it really started piling up. So, up on the roof I went. About 20-some tons of snow later (I calculated it while resting between shoveling), I was wiped out and my Saturday was gone.

Carbon Tax Crosses over to House

CB: … the climate commission’s work has only begun. The 20-member group has adopted a landmark sea level rise report, which includes online mapping tools for the public and state agencies to use for planning. In November, it unanimously called on the Legislature to pass a carbon tax to incentivize people to change their habits for the planet’s well-being (environmentalists’ private profit)….

On the Senate side, the biggest is a proposed carbon tax — a sweeping environmental policy reform that would affect virtually everyone in Hawaii.

Senate Bill 1463, introduced by Sen. Karl Rhoads and six colleagues, unanimously passed the 25-member chamber. It was transmitted to the 51-member House on Tuesday.

It’s the only version of a carbon tax still alive. Two House bills, far different than Rhoads’ proposal, died without a hearing. One related measure, House Bill 1584, is still moving forward but it only calls for a study by the University of Hawaii….

Trump Climate Panel Could Expose Huge Fraud, Hence the Hysteria

The collective freak out over President Donald Trump's proposed Presidential Committee on Climate Science (PCCS) highlights the fact that the hysteria surrounding the man-made global-warming hypothesis is unscientific — and that it must be re-examined by competent, credible experts. According to scientists and experts, if the science on “climate change” were truly settled, Democrats, tax-funded climate alarmists, and the establishment media would all be celebrating another committee to confirm that “conclusion.” Instead, the unhinged shrieking over Trump's plan to investigate the matter strongly suggests something very fishy is going on, critics argued. Indeed, there is a good chance that even more fraud could be revealed.

Global Warming A "Hoax And Scam" Pushed By Greedy Government Scientists: Greenpeace Co-Founder

The co-founder and former president of Greenpeace, Patrick Moore, says that climate change is a "complete hoax and scam," which has been "taking over science with superstition and a kind of toxic combination of religion and political ideology."

Moore, who recently made headlines for calling Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a "pompous little twit" and "garden-variety hypocrite" on climate change, sat down with SiriusXM's Breitbart News Tonight with hosts Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak.

The Greenpeace co-founder's message echoes that of John Coleman, the late Weather Channel founder who called global warming "the greatest scam in history."

Moore told Breitbart how fear and guilt are driving the climate change argument, reports Breitbart News.

A winter storm is bearing down on the Central Plains and the Midwest heading into the weekend and some areas could see more than a foot of snow by the time it’s all over. The storm, called Winter Storm Taylor by The Weather Channel, was expected to start dropping snow in the area as early as Friday night.

On Friday, the storm was making its way across the west eastwards to the Central Plains and the Midwest where it was then expected to bring more snow. Cyclogenesis was expected to occur Friday night and early Saturday east of the Rockies, according to the National Weather Service. This happens when the low-pressure system intensifies into a stronger cyclone movement, according to the NWS.

Why “climate change deniers” are better for the environment than politicians

Skeptics of human-caused climate change are more environmentally conscious than people who believe climate change is undeniably caused by human action.

A study last year found that climate change skeptics were more likely than the most ardent believers to adjust personal behavior to be more environmentally conscious.

“Belief in climate change predicted support for government policies to combat climate change, but did not generally translate to individual-level, self-reported pro-environmental behavior,” said the paper.

So they want the government to step in and force people to reduce their “carbon footprint,” but they aren’t willing to simply make those changes in their own lives. It’s the selfish attitude, why should I sacrifice if everyone else isn’t going to?

Except that normal people already treat their environment well, even as they are skeptical of how big the crisis really is, and what exactly caused it.

Life in the Green New Deal 'Paradise'? Nasty, Brutish, and Short.

Not long ago, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC — one of the best comedy accounts on Twitter) released (then retracted, and then disclaimed) the "Justice Democrats'" Green New Deal FAQ. (See @AOC and the Magic Choo-Choo.)

The GND's promises just didn't add up, but mere arithmetic often doesn't discourage a true believer. I started pondering what life would be like under the Green New Deal. (This is Part One of a two-part series. In the second part, we'll consider what can really be done to make transportation better.)

Welcome to the Green Paradise
The phone rings with its piercing "I don't care if you set do-not-disturb" ring. You wake, heart pounding. It's Mom.

"Oh my God! What are they doing?"

"Right now, they're keeping her comfortable. The Surgery Board meets today at 10, but she's 86, and, well..." her voice trails off.

Dr. Happer will set them free

It was easy enough to predict that Trump would appoint Dr. William Happer to set up a Presidential Committee on Climate Science.

Two years have passed and have been lost. The first years of the Trump administration were hobbled by poor Cabinet picks, a proportion of whom conspired against him and others who were just hopeless. Scott Pruitt at the EPA should have got on with Dr Happer's appointment straight away but instead spent $3.5 million on his own security detail. In the meantime, the climate juggernaut rolled on, producing 1,500 pages of alarmist nonsense in an official government report.

You can tell how important Dr Happer is by the forces that have been marshaled against him. The three major lefty media organizations — CNN, the Washington Post, and the New York Times — all came out to say Dr. Happer's efforts would be wasted. The Democrats are alarmed, calling Dr Happer's proposed panel "dangerous."

FLASHBACK - 1989: U.N. Predicts Disaster by 2000 if Global Warming Not Checked: “Entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth.”

A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000.

Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of ?eco- refugees,? ? threatening political chaos, said Noel Brown, director of the New York office of the U.N. Environment Program, or UNEP.

He said governments have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect before it goes beyond human control.

As the warming melts polar icecaps, ocean levels will rise by up to three feet, enough to cover the Maldives and other flat island nations, Brown told The Associated Press in an interview on Wednesday.

When Bubbles Burst – Tesla, The Everything Cycle and the End of Global Warming

As the center of the U.S. freezes this weekend, Elon Musk is trying to figure out how to save Tesla from going the way of Enron.

Religions die hard. It takes an orgy of evidence to change a person’s mind on a subject that is integral to their moral and ethical structure.

In the case of Tesla, the mania surrounding it over the past decade has been inextricably bound up with the hysteria of global warming.

For years investors ignored the obvious warning signs that Tesla would never be able to graduate from a boutique, hand-built car manufacturer and technology skunk works to a mass producer.

I’ve been very hard on Musk in the past, with good reason. But, as a guy with vision I applaud him getting Tesla off the ground and legitimizing the idea of the upscale electric car.

Gigantic 2,789-square meter snow maze that took 12 workers three weeks to build in -30F temperatures in Canada officially breaks the record for the biggest in the world

A Canadian man has broken the world record for the largest snow maze on Earth - with the help of 300 semi-trucks and just over 4000 tonnes of man-made powder.

Clint Masse's incredible creation measured in at a staggering 2,789.114 square meters when the Guinness World Records visited Manitoba, in Canada last month. It eclipsed the previous record by over 1000 sq ft.

Masse has been crafting corn mazes on his farm in St. Adolphe for two decades, but after a difficult harvest last year, the father of two came up with a unorthodox idea to turn his family's fortunes around.

'In October 2018, we had some of the worst weather we've ever had,' Masse told 'Then one of our staff showed us the current Guinness World Record for a snow maze, and we thought about it and said: "You know, it's going to be a tonne of work - but it's doable."'

Scott Adams: Talking to Dr. Shiva About Climate Change

The earth maintains equilibrium via multiple processes

Cloud and water vapor changes from CO2, NOT in the models
There is NO sharp rate increase in temperature over the last 50 years
2.5B years ago, the sun was putting out 30% LESS energy
With 30% less sun energy…earth temperatures barely colder
The earth maintained equilibrium via clouds and water vapor
Multi-dimensional problems can’t be reduced to a single variable (like CO2)
People don’t understand math and physics, they’re being bamboozled
CO2 doubled already, temp should be up 4 degrees, per models
The models are NOT supported by the data
Actual temperature increase has only been half degree

The Truth About Greenhouse Gases

The message is clear that several factors must influence the earth’s temperature, and that while CO2 is one of these factors, it is seldom the dominant one. The other factors are not well understood. Plausible candidates are spontaneous variations of the complicated fluid flow patterns in the oceans and atmosphere of the earth—perhaps influenced by continental drift, volcanoes, variations of the earth’s orbital parameters (ellipticity, spin-axis orientation, etc.), asteroid and comet impacts, variations in the sun’s output (not only the visible radiation but the amount of ultraviolet light, and the solar wind with its magnetic field), variations in cosmic rays leading to variations in cloud cover, and other causes.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez A ‘Pompous Little Twit,’ Per Greenpeace Co-Founder; Trump Also Mocks Green New Deal

Democratic politician Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been on the rise ever since having been elected to serve in the House of Representatives in late June of 2018. More recently, however, she has become one of the political faces behind the ambitious Green New Deal, a Democrat-led proposal that would ostensibly see a “massive transformation of our society,” one which would include a total divestment from fossil fuels in addition to a controversial proposal to provide “economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work,” per CNBC.

Not everyone is a fan of this proposal, however — as was made quite evident by ridicule from Republican quarters, including President Trump himself. During the Conservative Political Action Conference today, President Trump mocked the Green New Deal, per Fox News, going so far as to suggest that the Democrats should run with it in order to improve his own electoral future.

With first jab of snow over, region braces for more significant storm

The region weathered its first major snow event of the year Saturday without batting an eye, as residents prepared for a potentially more impactful storm that’s barreling across the country and toward Connecticut just in time for the work week to begin.

Saturday’s storm dropped roughly 5 inches of snow over the Southeastern portion of the state, with lower amounts in Windham County. The precipitation largely wrapped up by mid-morning and residents began using snow blowers and muscle power to clear the fluffy masses off driveways and sidewalks even before the last flakes fell.

The snow led to early parking bans, but few traffic issues beyond a few reported spinouts, local police departments said. The snow did lead to the postponement of a few community events, including a winter-themed fundraiser set for Norwich Free Academy.

Day of steady snow comes to end, with bone-chilling cold to follow Sunday

Frigid weather that could break temperature records will move into Minnesota this weekend on the heels of a snowstorm that led to hundreds of crashes on roads across the Twin Cities and beyond.

About 3 to 6 inches of snow fell through the day and into the evening Friday across a wide swath of southern and central Minnesota. The higher snow totals of 5 or 6 inches were mostly concentrated in the Twin Cities metro area, with 5.6 inches at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and Maple Grove reporting 6.5 inches, the National Weather Service in Chanhassen said. St. Cloud saw 3.9 inches, Red Wing 3.5 and Rochester 3.

The city of St. Paul declared a snow emergency, its sixth in five weeks. Minneapolis did not declare a snow emergency Friday, but winter parking restrictions remain in effect.

AccuWeather Alert: Winter storm warning issued for New York City, surrounding areas

A Winter Storm Warning is in effect from Sunday afternoon through early Monday morning for the entire Tri-State region.

The next major system arrives on Sunday afternoon as a mix of snow and rain before changing to all snow at night.

Storm totals look to be in the 3"-6" range for New York City, but 6"-8" (Locally 10") just to the north. Expect lower accumulations south and east of the city, where rain can stay mixed in with the snow for a longer period of time Sunday evening.

The snow will wind down by daybreak on Monday, but expect a very messy Monday morning commute with lots of snow-covered roads.

Robertson: Shoveling snow

Shoveling snow isn't as much fun as it used to be, especially when it reaches depths of 12-inches or more. However, it can spark a few memories from the past that you had long forgotten until that special moment when special moments are once again fresh and sweet in your mind.

Schilling: February put us in good shape for snow

February turned out to be a good month for us, not only up in the Sierra but also in the valley. Our basins are doing well and if we were to stop right now and not get any more snow, they would still be over 100 percent in places like the Truckee, Walker, Carson, and Tahoe.

While this is not as epic of a winter season as a couple years ago, it’s still been a really good snow season for our ski resorts. Most of our ski resorts are reporting anywhere between thirty to nearly fifty feet of snow so far this season.

This is fantastic news, granted many areas could probably use a break. While we’ve gotten breaks every once in a while, they’ve been short lived with more storms lined up. At this point in time it appears that the weather pattern will stay the same at least through the first week of March.

As we’ve learned it’s not only the snow that can make travel dangerous, but also the wind. Strong winds can topple over semi trucks and lower visibility if it’s snowing or raining.

Snow Ends This Afternoon, Second Storm Sunday Night

Snow has overspread the area and will continue to be steady throughout the morning and into the early afternoon. West of route 495 the snow will be much lighter and I'm not expecting more than an inch or two. Closer to Boston area there could be three inches with the possibility of a little more over interior southeastern Massachusetts. The snow will wind down this afternoon but will likely linger along the coast through 3 p.m. or 4 p.m. There may even be some sunshine over western areas before it sets before 6 p.m.

Mar 03 10:30

UPDATE: Parking ban lifts this afternoon

The National Weather Service in Norton is reporting that, as of 7:48 a.m., there is a total accumulation of 1.2 in. in the New Bedford area, and as the day moves into the afternoon they are expected an additional snowfall of 1.5 to 2 in.

Winds are expected to be consistent around 10 to 15 miles an hour with occasional gusts of 30 miles per hour.

The snow should subside by some point this afternoon, but we aren’t out of the woods yet, as another snow storm set to begin Sunday night is looming over the region.

Snow burst delays school openings in Morris

A stronger-than-expected burst of snow early Friday morning resulted in some delayed school openings and at least one closure in Morris County.

UPDATE: The Montville School District, which had previously announced a delayed opening, has announced a full closure for the day.

"It is snowing quite heavily and the roads are slippery," Parsippany Mayor Michael Soriano advised residents on his Facebook page at 6 a.m. "Our DPW trucks are salting the roads at this time. The snow should continue for another hour, please be safe out there."

Snow- and ice-packed dumpsters overflowing downtown

There are growing complaints about overflowing dumpsters in Omaha's Old Market. The narrow alleys there are already hard to maneuver while snow and ice have trash haulers backing off.

Days after it stopped snowing, the trash is piling up in an alley splitting two blocks in the heart of the Old Market.

His office above, Justice Decker can drive through the alley and though ice packed he wonders why trash trucks can’t get close enough to empty dumpsters.

”This is really terrible," Decker said. "Someone should be taking care of this right away.”

A block east, dumpsters for two restaurants and condos are buried by cardboard boxes with garbage mixed in. A bar manager claims the trash pile has been growing for two weeks.

It’s snowing! MTA bus delays, speed restrictions on Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge

Staten Islanders are facing wet snow and sub-freezing temperatures for the morning commute on Friday.

“Snow will fall over the next few hours,” according to Notify NYC. “Roads will become snow covered and hazardous and visibilities will be reduced. Use extra caution while traveling this morning. The snow should gradually taper off after 7 a.m.”

Speed restrictions are in place at the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge due to wet roadways, according to the MTA.

Snow in Forecast for a 2,500-Mile Path From California to Maine

Spring may be within sight, but as the calendar flipped to March, forecasters on Friday predicted a walloping storm this weekend, with snow and icy rain expected to coat a 2,500-mile path from Northern California to southern Maine. Rain was also forecast to drench Southern California and much of the South, from Texas to Virginia.

“I think everybody’s just kind of annoyed by it,” said Kent Flake, the commissioner of streets in St. Louis, where crews began treating the roads on Friday morning ahead of an expected six inches of snow.

Mr. Flake, an 18-year veteran of city government, said he could not recall a St. Louis winter with more storms. All that snow and ice, he said, have left behind about three times as many potholes as usual.

March to bring a half-foot of snow to Brockton area

The Brockton area is expected to receive 6 to 9 inches of snow on Saturday, according to StormTeam 5 at The Enterprise’s news partner, WCVB-TV, as of Friday morning.

The National Weather Service’s latest forecast for Taunton called for 4 to 6 inches of snow, as of the 4 a.m. prediction on Friday.

The anticipated snowfall comes just days after 4 inches of fluffy snow blanketed the Brockton region from Wednesday night to Thursday morning.

“As you get down here on the South Shore, away from the South Coast and the Cape, this is where we could see 6 to 9 inches of snow,” WCVB meteorologist Cindy Fitzgibbon said of Saturday’s storm.

Wyoming snow plow driver hits bag of cash, leading to massive marijuana and drug bust

What started as a bump in the snow for a Wyoming plow driver ended with a big drug bust for the state’s highway patrol.

On Thursday, a Wyoming Department of Transportation snow plow driver struck a black pelican case in while clearing a road in Carbon County, and out poured a whole lot of cash, according to state troopers.

The driver immediately turned the case over to the local Wyoming Highway Patrol office in Elk Mountain, about two hours south of Casper.

At the same time, three people in a small Toyota contacted a different maintenance vehicle and asked about the pelican case. They were told to head to the local Elk Mountain patrol office.

When they arrived, troopers said they noticed the smell of marijuana from the vehicle, which was then confirmed by a drug dog.

Troopers said they then searched the car and found 81 pounds of marijuana, felony amount of MDMA (street name of ecstasy), a misdemeanor amount of hallucinogenic mushrooms and felony amounts of liquid THC.

Snowplow Hits Car Buried In Snow Revealing Woman Trapped Inside

Crews plowing the snow-covered streets of South Lake Tahoe, Calif., discovered a woman trapped in a car completely buried under a massive mound of snow.

The 48-year-old occupant of the vehicle was coping after spending between four and five hours trapped in the car on Feb. 17, according to city spokesman Chris Fiore, who spoke to the Reno Gazette-Journal.

“With that much snow piled on top of the car,” Fiore said, “if the snowplow hadn’t hit the back of it we could be having a much different conversation—she could have suffocated.”

Record snowfall has snow blowers flying off the shelves

With the crazy amounts of snow we've seen this month, people have been reaching for their shovels and snow blowers. Local business that stock snow blowers, like Grebes in Wausau, cannot stock the showroom floor fast enough.

"We haven't been able to get stuff fast enough, it's been a unique year. When we have product in stock and it's snowing, people will come in. They say I'll take that one, that looks right, that's the perfect one for me. The last two to three weeks have been us selling product without them seeing it," Grebe’s owner Tim Grebe said.

Products that do make it to the store, are then sold in record time.
“We actually had two of the same machines left so I wheeled one on the floor just to see how long it would last. We were going to take bets and see how long, and it was literally 10 minutes and the machine was gone," Grebe added.

A February to remembrrr in L.A.: It never even reached 70 degrees

Home restaurant’s sprawling outdoor patio in Los Feliz, set under a canopy of large trees, was designed to take advantage of California’s temperate climate and typically sunny skies.

But this February has been so cold that the restaurant scrambled to set up extra heaters outside the Craftsman-style house to keep diners and workers warm during the record-setting cold winter.

“We had three heaters going for a while and this month it just hasn’t been enough,” said Sam Yoo, a manager at the restaurant. “I’m trying to have the waiters and hostesses wear warmer clothing, but I have one heater set up right by the host stand so they don’t catch colds.”

BEX ALERT - How a nuclear war between India and Pakistan could reverse global warming

We're at a scary moment internationally as tensions escalate between the nuclear powers of India and Pakistan, and we should all be praying for things to calm down. In addition to the horrible death toll and humanitarian crisis that would follow, according to scientists, a small-scale nuclear war could actually reverse global warming and actually cause devastating global cooling.

To be abundantly clear, what follows isn't meant as a how-to guide advocating nuclear war as some sort of out-of-the box alternative solution to climate change. It's meant as a description of the science surrounding how a theoretical regional nuclear war could affect the Earth's atmosphere, and thus the climate, even for people not directly in the blast radius.

How a nuclear war between India and Pakistan could reverse global warming

Though they weren't looking specifically at the current India-Pakistan conflict, in 2011, NASA scientists released a report based on a model that predicted the climate effects of the use of 100 Hiroshima-size bombs in a regional conflict. Though this would not be as intense as full-scale nuclear war between superpowers, such as the threat that existed between the U.S. and USSR during the Cold War, it still would be expected to have a dramatic effect on the climate.

Winter weather wreaks havoc on family farm, kills multiple cows

One Trempealeau County farming family is dealing with a devastating blow – a barn caved in on their milking cows late Saturday night.

“It was raining, snowing for a bit but raining real hard, and I guess it fell down. With all the cattle in here,” says Jason Johnson, one of the three owners of the farm. “It just kinda blows your mind a little bit. There ain’t nothing left of it!”

It happened after a long weekend of rain and snow, and a lot of accumulation from February’s record setting conditions.

“My brother was over here some place but we didn’t know where. It was really snowing a lot and very dark because all the lights had been wrecked, and [I was] very concerned for the cattle because there was 200 in this barn.”

The collapse killed six cows instantly and left another with life threatening injuries. None of them survived.

Ski Valley is open again after 42 inches of snow

A winter storm blanketed the valleys and buried Ski Valley under 42 inches of snow. Skiers and snowboarders waited all weekend before the road opened yesterday afternoon. Today was the first real chance to get some runs in.

“It’s one of the main things to do around here when it is snowing,” said Sarah Purdy.

Ski Valley on Mount Lemmon is back open after 3 ½ feet of snow.

“It’s awesome, real fluffy, it was nice,” said Colter Dent.

The only real complaint was how long it took to get the road open.

It’s Official! California Is Moving Toward Zero-Carbon Energy

Today, California Governor Jerry Brown signed Senate Bill 100, one of the world’s most ambitious clean energy bills into law. The bill sets a 100 percent clean electricity goal for California, proving that it’s possible to power major economies entirely with clean energy even while the Trump administration is pushing the agenda of big polluters.

”Thousands of Earthjustice supporters in California contacted their legislators over the last two years urging them to pass this vital bill, which will help the California communities most overburdened by pollution,” says Earthjustice California Policy Advocate Erica Martinez. ”Together with the wide coalition to pass SB 100, we were powerful, we were clear, and we were effective.”

Poll: Majority of Americans Favor a Border Wall over a Green New Deal

A majority of Americans would rather have a wall sealing America’s southern border than the Green New Deal, according to a poll released on Wednesday.
Fifty-one percent of Americans say that they would rather have a border wall on America’s southern border, compared to 31 percent who say that they want a Green New Deal, according to a poll released by Remington Research Group.

Republicans said that they would prefer a border wall by a 68-point margin, while Independents said that they would prefer a border wall by a two-to-one margin.

Ocasio-Cortez Fires Back at Ivanka Trump Over ‘Green New Deal’ Criticism

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fired back at Ivanka Trump over her criticism of the ‘Green New Deal’ and it’s false promises of guaranteed jobs and good wages.

The Democratic socialist’s plan includes a promise to provide “a job with a family-sustaining wage, family and medical leave, vacations, and retirement security” along with “economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work.”

The First Daughter took umbrage with the notion that Americans prefer handouts as opposed to earning their way through life.

John Kerry and other climate change alarmists refuse to risk actual debate on their theory

The thing about global warming alarmists is that they can't stand debate. Anyone who disagrees with their theory that humans cause global warming or climate change is called a denier and told to shut up. Not one of us who question the theory that humans, fossil fuels, and CO2 cause warming (or climate change, if you will) has ever said the climate is constant and has never changed, so calling us "deniers" is a bald-faced lie.

Tuesday, that brilliant climate scientist John Kerry was at it again. He penned an op-ed in the Washington Post saying President Trump should disband his "Climate Denial Panel."

Vancouver, where it rarely snows, has had five snow storms this year. It has even been reported that snow has fallen in Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Now that is an extremely rare event by itself in addition to Vancouver.

The winter cold has been severe this year. It appears that we are heading toward this trend in the next 8.6-year cycle if we see this unfold again next year. Given the outlook for food prices into 2024, something just does not look normal on the economic front.

India’s and Pakistan’s War and Nuclear War Plans

One of the most likely places for a major power war or nuclear war is between India and Pakistan. They each have between 80 and 200 nuclear weapons. This is the most likely place where a major nuclear war could break out. It is important for us to understand the situation and the thinking of the two countries.

India and Pakistan have had four major wars in 1947, 1965, 1971 and 1999. They also have had many border skirmishes and incidents.

The main difference between Antifa and the neo-Nazi’s marching in Charlottesville…is which members of the Trump family, each side wants to kill.

Belief in the Charlottesville Hoax, requires you to believe President Trump agrees with people who want to kill members of his family.
Belief in the Charlottesville Hoax, requires you to explain Israel’s love and support for President Trump.
Being respectful and personal, very complimentary while being tough in negotiations is President Trumps style.
