Blizzard, cold temperatures contribute to flood threat


www.ctv.ca

A blizzard dumping snow across North Dakota and freezing temperatures in Manitoba are adding to flood threats across the southern part of that province, said a government official on Tuesday.

The cold weather, said Randy Hull, emergency preparedness co-ordinator for Winnipeg emergency services, means that no snow is melting and no water being added to the river.

By time the snow dumped in North Dakota on Tuesday melts, the crest of the Red River will have already reached Manitoba.

But the cold temperatures also mean that the ice will stay frozen on the river.

"The longer the ice is there, the more chance there is the ice jam when we have the peak," said Hull.

I am in the northwest, and right now i am writting as more snow accumulates outside, and it doesn't seem to be stopping any time soon.

The climate is changing, but not because of atmospheric CO2, but rather because of natural factors that occur in cycles, and which we are now experiencing.

Will people learn to adapt to these changes, or will people continue to believe, and hope that "the government, and mankind can save the planet from Climate Change"?

Climate Changes in the past have caused the demise of entire civilizations, and unless we learn to adapt, and prepare, we might meet the same fate.
