That's right. At the 7000+ ft. elevations 10 feet of snow is expected.

That's 10 to 12 feet actually.

Western states facing 'all-day onslaught' from massive winter storm
By the CNN Wire Staff
December 19, 2010 6:37 p.m. EST

(CNN) -- A huge winter storm was affecting the West Coast on Sunday, poised to dump up to 10 feet of snow in some higher elevations, and causing flooding and potential mudslides in lower spots while impacting driving conditions and air travel, forecasters said.
A winter storm warning remained in effect through Monday afternoon for California's Sierra Nevada mountains, from Yosemite to Kings Canyon, according to the National Weather Service. "Storm totals of 5 to 10 feet above 7,000 feet are likely," the weather service said, and periods of heavy snow will continue through Monday. High winds are also forecast for the region.

Point of interest: This winter was forecast to be a "mild' winter. But now the Northern Hemisphere is hit with staggering blizzard conditions. And it's still fall. Winter begins Tuesday. It's not rocket science.

Ya know, I for one have been looking at all the strange weather patterns, especially this winter.

For example, I am in the southeast (TN) and it has been unusually cold and below zero for a few days, and in Florida also.....

And snow storms in California???

Yet, up north and on the east it is unseasonably warmer....

Definately looks like a pole shift starting to occur.....

Plus don't forget that Monday night (Tuesday morning) will be a total lunar eclipse for our lifetime.!!!

Arctic weather sparks more chaos
Dec 20 2010

Temperatures plunged overnight, with a record low for Northern Ireland seen in Castlederg, County Tyrone, where the mercury plunged to minus 17.6C. The lowest UK temperature overnight was thought to be minus 19.6C, recorded in Chesham, Buckinghamshire.

Forecasters have said the UK is experiencing some of the most severe winter weather in a century, with continued sub-zero temperatures and snowfalls of up to 20cm expected on Monday.

"I wouldn't worry though. It's just a couple of flakes. It's just winter as usual. It's not like there's a blizzard hitting much of the northern hemisphere or anything. I mean, people aren't dying from exposure or anything..."

(Insert sarcasm here)

Right. It's just a couple of flakes...

The weather outside is frightful almost everywhere

Wherever you may be today, there's a good chance you're walking in a winter wonderland. Mostly because it isn't safe to drive or fly.
A winter storm warning remained in effect through Monday afternoon for California's Sierra Nevada mountains, where 5 to 10 feet of snow could accumulate on top of the 9 to 10 feet that fell in some areas Sunday.
Heavy rains prompted the emergency evacuation Monday of nearly 2,000 residents of a flooding Southern California town and the
temporary closure of at least two highways because of mudslides.
Residents near McFarland were being evacuated Monday because of what Fire Department spokesman Sean Collins called "major flooding."
The area has been inundated with rain for four days, with totals ranging as high as 10 inches. The National Weather Service said additional rain is expected in the area through Tuesday.
Heavy snow was snarling air travel in Europe, where hundreds of flights were canceled in London, Paris, Frankfurt and Berlin. And just for good measure, the temperature reached zero degrees Fahrenheit overnight in Northern Ireland.
London's Gatwick Airport was closed until Tuesday morning after 5 cm (2 inches) of snow fell in an hour Monday night, airport officials reported.

Australians may see a white Christmas for the first time in decades after up to 11 inches of snow fell in New South Wales and smaller amounts in Victoria. Aussies traditionally sunbathe on the beach on Christmas.

Rapture notwithstanding, the staggering weather conditions are undeniable.

Don't worry about the rain either.

Thousands flee CA flooding
Hundreds of homes in danger as storm system pounds state with record rain, snow, mudslides
BY JOHN PAPE | McFARLAND, CA | December 20, 2010

A relentless weather system continued to pound California on Monday, forcing the evacuation of several thousand residents in a Kern County farming community.

The evacuations were ordered after major flooding was reported in McFarland, a community of 12,000 residents. Kern County Fire Department spokesman Sean Collins said as many as 2,000 people needed to seek shelter.

As much as 13 inches of rain had been recorded since Thursday in some areas, causing localized flooding and fears of widespread mudslides.

Heavy rains were even being recorded in the normally dry southwestern desert area.

The downpours put one community in the San Gabriel Mountain foothills just north of Los Angeles on high alert for possible mudslides. Many of the slopes surrounding La Canada Flintridge had been stripped bare of virtually vegetation by a wildfire, making mountainsides particularly vulnerable to instability and slides.

Forecasters Extend Flash Flood Watch
More Rains Expected Through Day

POSTED: 5:56 am HST December 20, 2010
UPDATED: 4:56 pm HST December 20, 2010

HONOLULU -- The National Weather Service extended a flash flood watch for the entire state on Monday afternoon.
The flash flood watch is now set to expire at 6 a.m. on Tuesday. A high surf advisory is also set until that time.
A flash flood watch means that conditions may develop that lead to flash flooding. If you are in a low lying area, move to higher ground if a warning is issued.
The state is under a moist air mass which could trigger heavy showers.
Rainfall Totals (8 p.m. Saturday to 2 p.m. Monday):
Kapahi, Kauai 5.88 inches
Maunawili, Oahu 11.44 inches
Molokai 0.20 inches
Lanai 0.55 inches
Waipkapu Country Club, Maui 0.87 inches
Kaupulehu, Big Island 1.38 inches

New Brunswick: Winter Solstice Wreaks Weather Havoc

The winter solstice is poised to make weather woes worse for parts of the region, which is now under storm surge, rainfall and wind warnings, according to Environment Canada. With the full moon closest to Earth today -- the first official day of winter -- the tide is expected to be high. But meteorologist Claude Cote said heavy rain and wind will cause the tide to come in even more. "It's one of the highest tides on the calendar," he said. "But the weather conditions will make (it) so that the actual water level will be in excess of one metre above this level, so that's going to result in some of the coastal communities probably (going) to experience flooding."

But at least things are letting up in Europe.

Commuters and Travelling Public Face Transport Chaos - Last Updated: Tuesday, December 21, 2010, 06:26

Commuters and people returning home for Christmas continue to have their travel plans disrupted as the bad weather throughout Europe shows no signs of easing.

Heavy snows along the east coast of the country forced Dublin airport to suspend all flights for over five hours last night and caused traffic chaos across the city.

Throughout the rest of Europe the heavy snowfalls caused chaos, with large numbers of flights cancelled and major disruptions on roads and railways.

But not to worry:

2010: Deadliest For Natural Disasters In A Generation
The Associated Press
Published Sunday, Dec. 19, 2010 5:59PM EST
Last updated Monday, Dec. 20, 2010 5:34PM EST

This was the year the Earth struck back. Earthquakes, heat waves, floods, volcanoes, super typhoons, blizzards, landslides and droughts killed at least a quarter of a million people in 2010 – the deadliest year in more than a generation. More people were killed worldwide by natural disasters this year than have been killed in terrorism attacks in the past 40 years combined.

"Massive Storms Devastate California" was the lead in super to the story on CNN. Here's the latest print story:

California Reels Under Torrential Storms

Los Angeles, Dec 22 : A state of emergency was declared across many areas of southern California in the US Wednesday as the strongest series of storms in decades pummelled the normally balmy region...

with meteorologists, authorities and residents bracing for the most powerful wave Wednesday, the fear was that the Golden State would be engulfed in a torrent of mudslides, flooding, tidal surges, thunderstorms and hail.

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger declared a state of emergency in Kern, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Luis Obispo and Tulare counties because of the storms.

Authorities were particularly concerned about hillsides that had been devastated by wildfires in recent years, where the deep saturation could cause massive mudslides.

Abrupt Climate Change? Is this what we are looking at? Have you seen the DEOS data showing that the Gulf Current has been ending off the coast of the Carolinas instead of continuing on to Europe where it warms them (and keeps most of europe from turning like Siberia). I have recently started a yahoo group for those interested in discussing Abrupt Climate Change, particularly in lieu of recent events. You can find the group by looking for Abrupt Climate Change Group in Yahoo! groups or by going to the following link:

I am mostly interested in discussing things such as the Great Ocean Conveyor (the system of currents that transfers heat around the world and has the power of thousands of nuclear bombs), the natural cycle of the weather that causes oscillations resulting in Mini Ice Ages, Interglacial Periods, etc. How the release of greenhouse gases or major oil spills could be impacting or accelerating a period of climate shift. Just some examples, have some interesting data in there, such as a govt report commissioned by DoD awhile back on the likely scenario should there be an Abrupt Climate Change.

Some people have said that the huge amounts of oil spilled in the BP oil spill have leaked into the Atlantic and caused interruptions in the Gulf Stream. I do not know, but I do know that if you go to the DEOS site anyone can look at the Gulf Stream images and see that something is amiss. Is there a coverup? Is false data being released to cover something up? People are going to be really angry if that is the case.

Anyways if you are serious about a discussion of Abrupt Climate Change and have something to share OTHER than opinions, come and check out the group. Find some info to share believe me it is out there so long as the internet is there.

ps-i have an interesting map of the new climate should a period of interglaciation be starting. with so much of the fresh water tied up in ice and snow, most of world will become arid or semi-arid (steppes), that means failure or weak monsoons, that means famine and worse in Asia (no water for the rice). And shorter growing seasons with drought in US and EU means famine as well. The 4 horsemen would be loosed, a battle for dwindling resources as the infrastructure fails. Who will survive? 2/3 of humanity will perish in short order should we be headed into another period like the Younger (also called Lesser) Dryas.

Let's not forget that the weather is still a cluster bubble and we're all doomed. Or it could still be just a couple of flakes. Noting to worry about in the way of flooding in Australia at least...

Or maybe I just have that moisture on the brain...


If you're still here after October 28th 2011 your're gonna be in big trouble.
Or not.

I live in central/north bc.. and it typically gets COLD here in the winter to the point where you wouldn't take your kids to school for fear of being outside for 5 minutes... that kind of thing is normal here, every winter, that there are at least some no school days, but so far this year the temperature is staying around 0 here. It's unusually warm. And we seem to have had a record low amount of snow this year, in comparison to previous years, which is also odd.
