And next week will be filled with videos of people who, instead of staying home, went about business as usual only to be stuck in miles-long traffic jams in cars that refuse to move on ice and snow covered highways, running out of gas to keep themselves warm.

And then they'll bitch that the government didn't do enough to come save them from themselves.

USA'ians can't even handle a few hours with the power out. How are they gonna handle weeks or months of all public services being goners, which is bound to happen sooner or later?

Has FEMA announced any advance preparation plans yet?

From what I can tell, it's just January weather in November. I look forward to it!



Yeah, but you're in Oklahoma!!! Damn boy, why you wanna do that to yourself?

I bet it will all blow over.

So we are in for it when it passes over the great lakes? Considering the current water temps around 55*F this will mean epic lake snow. 1 hr north of Buffalo here and about 15 min from Lake Ontario, this should get interesting to say the least..

You mean this?

Pic

Do we have some way to reference this pic or is it file footage from somewhen else?


It's a radar (?) picture of the remnants of a typhoon that's now bearing down on the Bering Straits and Alaska. It's disrupting the jet stream and will add to the polar vortex that most of the US is going to get clobbered with, soon.

I'm sure glad I'm inland, southern Oregon right now...


Just as long as it doesn't hop the Rockies like it did that one time last year, the Far West should just be cooler but sheltered from it. Definitely keep an eye on the weather reports over the next week to make sure it doesn't do that as the weather did that once in this kind of scenario and it can do it again.

Lol I just read this post listening to "project 100" by infected mushroom... Very epic orchestral song.. Spartan warrior stuff.. Made that post seem so intense lol.

Your actually dead on jay. My old man called me and made sure I'm stocked up. He's gonna bring a generator by that's better then the one I got incase... He said "you see all this moisture out there that's holding the temps in the 50's? Well that's gonna fall as snow somewhere and if its on us be ready!"

Moral of the story? GAME ON winter is coming folks get ready !

a reply to: signalfire I have watched this video several times and have a few questions.

1) Why is Kaku, a theoretical physicist, giving weather news? Why don't they have on a well-known meteorologist instead?

2) Why is he smiling when he says that "all hell is going to break loose" and that this storm is worse than Hurricane Sandy?

3) Why is his prediction of a "massive disruption" on transportation (flights and trains) and people's lives not being reported in other weather outlets?

4) Why does he laugh when using the word "Bombogenesis" or the "geek" term for a bomb cyclone, if in fact it's the case? It's almost as if he cannot believe he is being asked to give this script.

The date of November 13, the peak of the storm which will cause "massive disruption," happens to coincide with a FEMA drill being planed for the same day:
www.intellihub.com...

Something about the intemperate language in his presentation ("we're in the bull's eye," "violent swings," "the earth is changing," "get used to it") makes me wonder if we are being psychologically prepped for something more than a drop in temperatures. After all, most of the country and its transportation systems can deal with sudden plunges in temperatures -- it's happened many times before.

You are talking about urban dwellers.

My folks did it as recently as three years ago. If you live in a rural area in the US, you are last in line to get your services restored in any major storm in the US, so you can indeed be living without power weeks or longer.

Cuz Kaku is photogenic, quirky and a doom porner like lots of us here?

I'm not sure why he was on that show, maybe they had a preceding segment discussing quarks, string theory and quantum computing.

Personally, I think he's a foil for the other people on that show who seem unable to do their own research on ANYTHING.

face on him that he always has, something that's a cross between rapt attention and confused stupor.


I love this expression - well done.

Kaku warns that air, train and vehicle traffic could be paralyzed next week, and schedules disrupted: “A massive disruption that will peak around November 13th to November 15th” Kaku informs us, before telling us that we could feel the ‘ripple effects’ throughout November.




Nice winter to you too, Michio.

Yes very. About 10 min shot down 31 or Upper Mountain...

It is obvious from the comments that few of you are fully understanding the science or the mechanisms at play with this storm coming down from the North.

This storm is going to be one of many storms over the coming years, each one dragging down very cold air from the upper atmosphere, and from the North polar region funnelling it down across the American landscape. The storm itself isn't the issue, they come and go pretty rapidly. The real issues are the speed at which the attendant effects arrive, and how long they last.

Extreme cold is debilitating, societies do not function at optimum levels during extreme winters. Power generation runs at overload, weather systems deliver massive snowfalls. People who live in places like Alaska and Canada will fare much more efficiently than their American counterparts, more so than those living in the warmer climes and big cities. Between minus 40 and minus 60 degrees cold will start to shut down societies almost right away, but it is the length of time that the cold stays around that determines the most damage.

These storms dragging cold air down from the upper atmosphere and from the North polar region will become more frequent over the years. At the moment you may only experience one or two of them per year, but this number will rise, as the storms follow behind each other, and not allowing any respite from the cold extremes, keeping it cold for longer periods. It's the natural mechanism for inducing a short-term or long-term ice age.

You'll notice the lakes freezing over, year on year, lakes that haven't frozen over for a very long time. These will be accompanied with a drop in ocean temperature around the coasts. However, the best signifier for the Northern hemisphere entering a short or long-term ice age is when we see the river Thames in London freeze over, year on year. We are not in an ice age just yet, but we may well be seeing the mechanisms coming into play to induce it.

This may not be the widespread disruptor that Kaku is gabbing on about, but Weatherbell has some snow in their models along with lasting cold. However, this is not a polar vortex event.

Check out the Saturday Summary.

Bah here in Michigan I've grown up hearing stories about the winters "you had to climb out your second story" to go to school... Well I'm prit near 30 and I've only ever seen a couple feet tops. And every year people seem to freak out MORE about LESS snow.

I understand the logistical loads and that will just shoot prices up but that will cause more to revert to wood(already happened IMO)

Idk its winter.. I almost like the sneak attack approach... Winter is easier to take like a bandaid.. Don't wanna ease into it lol.

I saw snow once,I think it was on National Geographic.

I did a report on bombogenesis for my Synoptic Meteorology class I took years ago. To say this is a Biblical storm is playing the fear card. We have experienced many. Sometimes it seems like every blizzard, or every land falling major hurricane we have the media likes to call 'Storm of the Century'.

It does make us weather nerds excited when something like this happens.
