Massive winter system spans 2,000 miles, threatens Midwest cities


www.cnn.com

As much of its strength, the system's immense size sets it apart. As of Monday evening, the National Weather Service had posted winter storm warnings, watches or advisories in at least 29 states in a 2,000-mile space stretching from the Southwest to the Northeast.
"A storm of this size and scope needs to be taken seriously," said Craig Fugate, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
The worst conditions are expected in parts of seven states where blizzard warnings were in effect Monday night. The Monday night forecast of fierce winds, strong snow and minimal visibility c

Is it just me or is this winter just amazing?

(I grew up in Alaska so I love winter)

This storm stretches from New York to New Mexico... Hard to get your mind around how colossal this storm has become.

Have any ATS members been affected by it yet?

Seems to me we're experiencing a little "climate change" right now! Some of my relatives in Alaska are talking about how mind the winter has been... while down here we are getting pounded!

Has anyone been more clairvoyant in the last few days? More intuitive?

It could have neurological ties to brain waves IF HAARP does play a role in manipulating weather.

Also, many mysterious loops and trails were visible over the skies of central Kansas recently - atmospheric manipulation could be a plausible cause for rapidly dropping temperatures over the next few days.

I grew up a few hundred miles from HAARP (I grew up in Fairbanks Alaska)...

So if that were true would everyone in Alaska be more Psychic?

Could this end up being the "Storm of The Century?" We have had snow, sleet and wind for the past 4 hours - no telling what we will wake up to.

Love your avitar - cat person here, lol.

1-3 sleet, ice, and snow down this way in the south. Schools are already closing down the pansies. But anyways these people down here can't drive on a 1/4 inch of the stuff let alone 1-3. So probably for the best. Stay safe everyone and keep them feet and external body parts warm, most important thing other than, when going up hill don't stop half way keep your freaking foot on the Accelerator!

Not exactly, think of it more like...
Growing up near a gun doesn't mean you're being shot, only the target.

Good Grief! This is getting bad. In the long-term,you guys better realize that this is going to have an impact on food production. Expect to hear about more crop failures and reduced output soon.

If what they're saying is true,companies are already building large underground storage facilities for food in the U.S. Nonetheless,don't expect to be able to get your hands on any of it. Be prepared as best as you can for whatever comes. Things are likely to start getting real funky soon.

A local meteorologist said earlier this is the worst storm he has seen in 30 years!
He's a well trusted man who has been on television for as long as I can remember.

Aside from that, all the local schools canceled in preparation of the storm. The ground isn't even wet! lol The local police force has declared, "Operation Slick Streets" which means they won't handle any accidents unless injuries are present. All of this is a little strange to me because like I said... the ground isn't even wet yet.


I'm pretty excited. There is like an electricity in the air. When people panic like they are right now, I seem to find an element of amusement. Anyone else like that?

They're saying between 12" to 18" of snow likely. Bring it!

We're supposed to get 20.5 inches here now


It's only just started and there's a fresh inch of snow on the ground on top of the 6 inches that was already out there. The brunt of it is supposed to come tomorrow afternoon.

Is it really?? WOW! I live right down i35 and they are not expecting any accumilation in Central Texas. Of course this is Texas, so I could end up being iced in for days LOL.

Everyone please stay safe and warm.

They only closed the school 1 time when I was growing up in Alaska. It was 80 below with the wind chill and a complete whiteout.. but they didn't close it at first... They made everyone ride the bus, and as the bus was pulling into the school they radioed and had the bus return us home...

We would play outside for recess until 20 below... ahhhh I miss Alaska!

Jeez, I was going to post about this days ago, I assumed it was covered!
What's up, ATS?
Slackers!


No, really though, I just got in from out back, hauling in loads of firewood, and I've already got drifts pushing two feet in some areas.

I'm in one of the areas that is supposedly going to get the brunt of the snow fall, S.E. Wisconsin, near the lake, yet in the middle of farm fields.

Did my errands today, needed to par back up on some batteries, thanks to the relationship the kids have with Santa.

Wife is determined to go to work tomorrow, so I threw the tow chains in my truck, as I'm sure I'll be on a "rescue mission" for her tomorrow evening.

Oh yeah, picked up a few extra cases of beer, could be a long couple of days!

Snow.....Ice......arctic temperatures.... plague of locust and frogs falling from the sky....


God how I love biblical waether.

I am curious though to see how scientists who still beleive global warming are perceiving the weather we have been having.
