Frozen

 

Nature performs many astonishing feats, yet it is a different matter altogether when we human beings push past the boundaries of normal. It was a viciously cold morning in Lengby, Minnesota, when a man discovered his 19-year old neighbour, Jean Hilliard, lying in the snow.

Her whole body was frozen solid from the night before, when temperatures dropped twenty-five degrees below zero. Apparently, Jean was trying desperately to reach her neighbour for help after her car skidded off the road. When her body was discovered she was immediately sent to the local hospital, where her condition stunned the doctors.

Global Warming. Coming. To. Get. You

Global Warming biting hard in the US, 49 of 50 states have snow on the ground

Global Warming is striking hard in the US.  The Herald reports on ‘Snowmageddon’ or global warming in a cool phase:

A major storm blowing in heavy snow and ice is gripping large swaths of the winter-weary US, leaving a dozen people dead and knocking out power to hundreds of thousands of homes.

Thousands of travellers were stranded as flights, including at major air hubs in Atlanta and New York, were cancelled, and nearly 800,000 homes and businesses lost power, mainly in Georgia, and North and South Carolina.

The latest brutal freeze to hammer the eastern states of the country since the start of the year has been dubbed “snowmaggedon”, “mind-boggling” and “historic” by major television networks and forecasters.

CBS News said at least 11 deaths had been blamed on the ferocious conditions.

“A strengthening area of low pressure will move up the east coast Thursday bringing with it significant winter weather from the southeast to New England (in the northeast),” said the National Weather Service, which had warned of a “mammoth dome” of Arctic air.  Read more »

Can irony cause a sore back? Sure it can! Wait for it…

Apart from that, global warming is not delivering in Portland, Oregon either.

How is the northern hemisphere enjoying their global warming then?

The global warmists have been pretty much wrong on everything so far and their taxpayer funded computer modelling is a joke, garbage in garbage out.

But let’s say they are correct and we may get warming of 2 degrees over the next century that will bring the temperature up in Washington to -12, -20 in Chicago, -14 in New York and balmy Florida to a sweltering 2 degrees.

The Daily Mail reports progress with global warming in the Northern Hemisphere.

Brutal, life-threatening cold descended over the East and the South, sending the mercury plummeting on Tuesday into the single digits and teens from New York and Washington to Atlanta, Nashville and Birmingham – where many people have little experience in dealing with freezing weather.

After pounding the Midwest and Great Lakes over the weekend, snow from winter storm Ion started to move into the East on Tuesday.

The morning weather map for the eastern half of the U.S. was dotted with lots of small, negative numbers with the Midwest and the East were colder than much of Antarctica.

The historic freeze shuttered schools, businesses and made road conditions treacherous. More than 3,700 flights – around one out of every 10 domestic departures – were canceled on Monday with delays continuing today. The majority of cancellations were in Chicago, Cleveland, New York and Boston.   Read more »

How’s that global warming feeling?

Global warming is attacking hard out in the US…smothering the mid-west in freezing temperatures unheard of for decades.

Plenty more people die from the cold than from heat…but you know the planet is warming and these freezing temperatures are proof of that according to the real denialists, those who ignore there has been no warming for 17 years.

Right about now if you asked residents in the US Mid-West what they thought about global warming you’d probably be stripped naked, doused in water and thrown out in the snow.

A deep freeze expected soon in the US Midwest, northeastern New England states and even the South will be one to remember, with potential record-low temperatures heightening fears of frostbite and hypothermia.

It hasn’t been this cold for decades 20 years in Washington, D.C., 18 years in Milwaukee, 15 in Missouri even in the Midwest, where bundling up is second nature. Weather Bell meteorologist Ryan Maue said, “If you’re under 40 (years old), you’ve not seen this stuff before.”  Read more »

Global warming strikes again, wonder how many Eco-loons are snowed in?

A snowpocalypse has descended on the Northeast US.

Apparently the storm will drop temperatures so much it will freeze skin in 15 mins…even a good freezer can’t do that

Almost 100 million people across the Northeast battened-down-the-hatches as the huge winter storm dubbed Hercules slammed the Northeast with stiff winds and punishing cold temperatures on Thursday, dumping nearly 2 feet of snow in parts of the region and threatening more.

The National Weather Service said 21 inches of snow had fallen in Boxford, just north of Boston, by Thursday night, while other parts of the state had 17 or 18 inches. It added that parts of upstate New York had received 18 inches while New York City was on course to get about 8.

With bone-chilling conditions that could freeze exposed skin in 15 minutes expected in the aftermath of the snowfall, authorities warned people to stay indoors and to only travel when necessary.  Read more »
