actually I have come across theories and facts that support such an event and it can happen quickly, in a season
the atmosphere heats up so rapidly and glaciers melt so much that the humidity across the planet rises dramatically resulting in incredible amounts of precipitation. current theory [popular] is that glaciers slowly advace. new theories are that massive storms with huge depth of accumulation occur rapidly. thus explaining how a whooly mamoth could be incased in ice with food in his mouth, a 15 foot snow storm in hours, one after the other, accumulating depths of 100's of feet
there is geological evidence that this occurance happens at peak every 11,000 years or so.
the theory does not recognize extreme temps just extreme accumulation
life would still flourish in lower lattitudes, just not as hot. I do not care for heat any way, have had three heat stokes
this is why I live in Alaska, and today it was to hot here.
indian legend here says that when the fireweed blossoms winter is coming. fireweed is a tall grass with beautifull purple flowers similar to digitalis of Northern California. they usually blossom in late september and their height is said to correlate with the coming snowfall. it is July and they are blooming outside my igloo they are over 7 feet tall and 2 months early?
just a couple of stories and myths I have encountered
