Why go swimming?, When you can go skiing?


Three Feet Of Snow Slams Upstate New York Memorial Day Weekend

Three (3) feet of snow at a New York resort for Memorial Day weekend may encourage you to forget the barbeque and bring out your skis. Whiteface Mountain, a ski resort near Lake Placid at over 4,600 feet above sea level, has reported the astonishing late May snowstorm.

Aw, man... I'm getting chilly just thinking about it.


-----

Oh yeah, and check out this 'gem.'

Arizona poster Jerry Harte asked, “Whiteface Mountain in Lake Placid, NY has 34 of snow on Memorial weekend. Nobel winner, Al Gore, says Arctic will be snow free in 15 month?”

Heh. Well, Jerry, I guess if those lyin’ polar bears need more snow, we can just send ‘em to New York.


Haha.
Yeah, Jerry...

Gtfo.

I am waiting for the "global warming is a sham" folks to start chiming in.
This type of weather swing is becoming so normal, most are brushing the oddity off as no
big deal. It is a mountain altitude, so not a huge issue,. but the amount of moisture from
gulf is the issue,. unprecedented melting globally of the polar ices may seem debatable, but
the massive uptick in weather swings is hardfast in our faces,. huge temperature swings and
very large storms with large multiple tornadoes are sweeping this country (USA) seemingly regularly.
Look at the financial aspect of the damages from the disaster from the last 5 years,. what used
to be the once in a 100 year storm and floods in many areas is now a regular occurrence. And
one thing thing that is in relation to these events is the constant focus on the warming planet. Warming planet=
warming water=more or bigger hurricanes and more moisture carried into the atmosphere= more
rain and heavier snow and often larger accumulations

It's really not that uncommon..

I took the pic below in Bozeman , MT during the second week of June a few years ago. The day I left they got over 1 foot of snow which made for some great pictures!

Before anyone says "the elevation there is so much higher"

Bozeman MT Elevation: 4,820 Feet
Whiteface Mountain, NY: 4,865 Feet

Believe it or not it has snowed in New England in July and August.

Looking around i found this LINK and it is amazing the things i find relating to weather form decades and centuries ago.

Man caused global warming disbeliever present as requested.


There are many who believe that man's contribution of greenhouse gasses is the only thing stopping another ice age. Is it true? Who knows.

Here is what we do know. The global warming pushers have lied and continue to lie. The establishment attacks scientists who dispute man caused global warming instead of giving their theories adequate peer review. We also know that the currently offered "solutions" are nothing but a vehicle of wealth transfer from richer nations to poorer ones. They also tie in closely with agenda 21 which is just a way to get us all into big megaplexes we we can be more easily controlled. Does mankind contribute in a negative way to the sustainability of our biosphere? Yes. Are we the "sole" or even the largest cause? NO! The sun has been raising temperatures on planets all over the solar system. One good volcanic eruption dwarfs our entire contribution over the last century. So, sorry but I am not buying the whole "man caused global warming catastrophe" hoax.

Hmm,.
I never said anything about who or what is causing a warming planet,. Only the affects of what is a
hard data result. not an opinion or agenda.


I dont bother to get into debates with those that always dwell on the "mans not the cause"
proponents. I dont really care why,. just that it IS happening and we should look into how
to react before we it is to late to adjust

Historic cycling race in Italy is halted by snow for the first time in 24 years

HEAVY snow forced organisers of the Giro d'Italia cycling race to call off yesterday's mountain stage – the first time in 24 years that a stage of the famous bike race was cancelled due to the weather.

Heavy snow in the Alps Sunday May 26, 2013

It seems that winter in the Alps is not over and in places it looks more like the middle of winter.

My Birthday is April 30th,

I can remember one year here in Albany, NY we got hit with like 2ft of snow just days before it.

I'm not saying it's uncommon, but I'm thankful I'm walking around here in shorts, and not trudging my way through a gauntlet of frozen water.

Increases in global temperature do one very important, very pertinent thing: increase moisture in the air, because warmer air has a higher capacity to hold water than colder air does (thats why Antarctica is the largest DESERT on the planet, its TOO COLD to precipitate most of the time).

With more moisture in the air, there is going to be wetter whether, both in terms of rainfall, AND snow.

Global warming is a real thing. When the Sun says "get warm", every planet in the solar system gets warm. And they all have. That includes Earth.

What will be compounding the issue many fold in the coming decades will be the enormous amounts of methane clathrates that have started to destabilize and enter the Earths atmosphere. We past that point of no return several years ago, and the process will continue to accelerate until ALL methane clathrates have sublimated and are dispersed into the atmosphere, heavily insulating it and spiking the average global temperature way up for some decades before the methane levels naturally fall.

All the scoffers... lol. Im not sure if they all do it because they have no #ing clue what theyre talking about, but feel compelled to scoff in ignorance regardless, or if its just a psychological defense mechanism to knowing that their tiny mental paradigm of what the world is will soon be radically changed, or what.

But no matter what it is... its coming. We are already seeing the start of it, and have been for maybe a decade now. In another decade, it will be undeniable. The world will be much wetter (perceptually speaking), and generally experience much less stable weather patterns, in terms of predictable storms, daily and seasonal high/low swings, etc.

Enjoy it, really. 90% of this board will be witness to a quick (only decades long, extremely fast) major global climate shift that only takes place very, very rarely, only once every several ten million years, according to arctic core samples.

Look at it this way... most people would love to retire to the tropics somewhere... no need, soon, because the tropics will be coming to you

Is there climate change sure. You say the cause does not matter, but in politics it does. Man is not the cause, it is the natural cycle of the Earth.

There have been many climate changes over the billions of years the Earth has traveled around the sun. What follows with these climate changes depends on how much change happens. With each great extinction there was a climate change. There was also more than one ice age. Before an ice age came a time of increased heat.

What we are seeing is the next climate change. No matter what we do we will not stop it. I guess we could get off the planet or venture underground, but it will not be stopped. I think this is what will remove people from the Earth.

I am not looking to debate you, you have said you are not looking for one. I just want to point out that while we might know there is climate change we will not stop it. We should also understand that in is a natural cycle that the Earth has gone through many times..

I certainly agree it is coming, as eluded to in my first post.
There was never an argument from my end when I started paying attention to the weather
over 9 years ago. We are headin for a change no matter what we try to do. James Lovelock
was asked what we could do about climate change,. His comment was" Try to stay warm"
as if he has a clue to what is coming,. and according to the vast data,. the next big climate
change will be a ice age of a sort, be it large or isolated to a continent half,. we have no idea.
just that it is a good bet it is coming, So with that said, our focus as a humanity survival
should be understanding ways to adapt and quit the focus of why,. cause,. yes,. it is
an historic cycle.

Climate Change aside, weather is very unpredictable.

I think it was winter 2011 - snow on the ground, - freezing rain, - thunder storm.



It wasn't severe, but still pretty awesome.

Nature doesn't really care if it's a public holiday!!

Seriously though, we have had snow in June in England. In fact during one of the hottest summers in living memory 1976, it snowed in May.

So, although it's not a regular occurence, it does happen. I'm just waiting for the pro man made Global warming crowd to come in and explain that this is the effect of said topic. Oh wait.........

While I think we are near the start of a climate change I am not sure it will get much warmer. It might, but I suspect that the ice age portion is much closer (in terms of change not in time). I am pretty sure I will only see higher temps not the ice age. That said there will be people around (far less than today) to witness their own extinction.

Any ATS members living in New York have any pictures of the snow?

I'm jealous!

Whoa... I didn't think the snow was that bad. And it was still coming down. That's crazy especially in the month of MAY??

You would think flowers would be blooming.



Glad I'm not there.

Be careful driving in that.
