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.


I'm sure their paycheck keeps them warm....

It looks cold out there!
This is out of the ordinary, yes?

brrr.....

I wonder, how long will it take for this to "blow" over?

Actually there are several ongoing threads on ats as of yesterday about this storm. But hey in my opinion the more the merrier!!! Nothing as of yet here in NY but it's only a matter of time.

Oh..nah that kind of stuff is for the politicians....lol.
I have one specific guy in mind...

This looks crazy!
I read another link that described this as likely the biggest
storm the U.S. has ever seen. This could be serious.

Of course, I suppose its all ordinary, according to the "experts".

Let's ask the founder of The Weather Channel and 30,000 other weather scientists...

Somehow as of lately I am reminded of the Art Bell book The Coming Global Superstorm. Now someone just keep an eye on those buoys!!

I could have swore that, here in Missouri, we've seen two feet of snow in my lifetime. ... Of course, it could be that I was only three feet tall at the time and a foot of snow felt like two feet.

In either case - I'm kind of looking forward to having a "snow day" from work... I've got an hour commute - if I can't see the road when I wake up and/or it's practically a white-out, I'm calling in. I could probably make it into work... I just wouldn't be leaving work any time soon... and they'd make me clock out at some point.

I will not like missing a day of work, though. We may get a chance to make it up in overtime (we'll probably need the overtime to hit deadlines - although we can't put parts still with wet paint together, so we may not be able to push these units out on time).

It's kind of crazy, though - calling for 12-16 inches here with 30mph winds (snow drifts taller than my car - fun!) and up to 24 inches in St. Louis. All on top of a nice sheet veil of ice that formed this afternoon. There's some concerns about power outages and the impact that could have. I've heard a few grocery stores have bare shelves.

Tomorrow should be interesting. And, honestly, I'll be kind of pissed if this thing doesn't produce some snow of biblical proportions. All of this drama over it, let's see some records set.

Oh those experts.


Yeah, they blow in the wind, this way...that. Its all a new "terror" to them.


I suppose this ole earth is bound to go through some change as it ages.
We all do, why should earth be any different?

I will be the first to admit, I am tuned to the earth, the elements.
I have moods that match the seasons, and I feel it groaning underneath us.

Bundle up....its going to get bumpy!

It does start in Texas - I am in Lubbock and saw it drop 20 degrees in about 1 hour or so this afternoon. It was 63 when I left my home for the store and errands.......

Now?? It is 25 with a wind chill of 14 degrees!! Freezing rain all around the area is starting and it is suppose to change to snow around midnight and continue through the day tomorrow. If it moves through slow, like they say it will, I would not be surprised is we get 4 inches - with wind gusts of 40 MHP - or even more!!

Texans are NOT used to this kind of weather!! I spent 20 years or so in NY and PA in the 70's/80's. But, I have been down here 25+ years now. I just pray the power survives the storm as I live with my elderly mom and I do not know what we would do. We cannot afford to crank up the thermostat but utilize 2 electric heaters. (makes no sense, I know :@@) But we keep them set at 65 during the night. Thank God for lots of blankets!!

We will pile the clothes on tomorrow - even while indoors, it will be THAT cold here. God Bless, everyone....be safe and stay warm enough to not freeze. Oh, and eat homemade beef veggie soup.........

If it were only the earth.... maybe they might have a point.
But why is Mars warming also?
Why is Jupiter warming?
Maybe Neptune???
Triton
Saturn, Pluto... on and on...

Good question, is the universe getting old?

Or...is it on a path.

Maybe both?

Humm....

Reminds me of stories my grandmother used to tell when she was growing up in Northern MN. Storms that were so brutal they had to use ropes to maneuver between buildings on the farm, else get lost in the blizzards. Children getting lost on the way to school and not being found until spring thaw, just to name a few. The Midwest US used to have massive winter storms as a matter of course, perhaps the weather patterns/cycles are shifting back? Take care, those of you who will be affected.

Interesting information. Perhaps we are .ed for something new and this cannot be considered simply "cyclical" ... hard to know, at this point.
