Winter Storm Inga Barrels East And Dumps More Snow And Ice

Winter Storm Inga is dumping snow, sleet, and ice throughout the Northeast and South Tuesday and Wednesday, creating icy conditions and hampering travel through a significant portion of the U.S., according to the National Weather Service.

While parts of Kentucky have already received nine inches of snow, most areas can expect just enough to cover and close roads in the South. Snowfall in the Northeast is expected to be no worse than normal, anywhere from two to six inches in most areas.

Republican Gov. Kay Ivey of Alabama declared a state of emergency in Alabama Monday in preparation for the storm.


“There are enough uncertainties in the forecast right now that the potential exists that this winter storm could be debilitating to the state for a couple of days due to icy conditions,” Director Alabama Emergency Management Agency Brian Hastings said according to CNN.

Around 40 million Americans are under a wind chill warning from Montana to Texas and in the Northeast, where temperatures could feel as low as minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Yet the media sees EVERY warmth aberration, no matter how insignificant, as a dire warning of global warming… This, of course, means nothing.

    The most powerful element of political propaganda is not the telling of lies, it’s the selective reporting (or lack of reporting) for relevant events.

    This is everything, this is climate change! ! ! I get it, now, it’s crystal clear.
    Over 400ppm CO2 and all hell breaks loose.
    It’s out of control, feedback loop-y. The ice caps are melting and Louisiana is freezing.
    Out of the fry pan and into the fire and ice.
    There’s no atheists in this frozen fox hole. I’ll turn vegan, I’ll wear hemp, I’ll do whatever it takes to stop this madness! I believe I believe I believe

    I am a longtime Connecticut resident like Mark Twain who coined the phrase “If you don’t like the weather, wait a minute.” Changeability is perhaps Connecticut’s most marked weather characteristic but changeability is hardly exclusive to Connecticut. Across the globe, cold waves and heat waves, storms and fine weather can alternate with each other weekly or even daily.

    Not giving my age away but I can remember snow over my head when I was 8 years old. Or walking on the Connecticut River over to kings Island and even skating in the canal one year. In February of 1969 on a trip to Maine I got stranded in Ashland, spending two days with a very generous family who lived next door to the Post Office. The day I left the plowed main roads had snow piled over 8 ft. high on both sides. Kittery never looked so good in the rear view mirror!!

    My first major snow storm as a new home owner was in 1978. The wind was really fierce and the power went out. A Snow drift blocked off our back porch door and the driveway on the lee side of our house had a clear 3 ft. wide path all along the house. I was remodeling at the time and fortunately had installed a cast iron pot belly stove that fall. That stove served us well then and has been indispensable many times since then. 2011 and especially 2013 are clearly defined in my mind. This winter, tonight, it waits. There is comfort in that.

    Point is, cold, hot or whatever, it’s weather for us and whatever “climate change” occurs over time will determine weather patterns for our grandchildren. Teach your children to keep an eye to the sky, have an umbrella handy and prepare them to handle whatever shit happens.

    Climate change is a cyclical long term largely unknown phenomenon with a variety of variable determinative factors. At the surface the chaotic nature of weather patterns makes its predictability impossible to model. The hottest hot and the coldest cold are only as good as the next hottest hot or coldest cold and the same applies to all manifestations of weather be it wind, rain, humidity, atmospheric pressure and so on. Much much more research needs be done. Today no one can predict continental U.S.weather with any degree of reliably for 2 days, or even one city specific forecast for more than 4 or 5 days beyond 70% accuracy, 70% of the time. No one.

    But we are to believe the dire predictions 25, 50 even 100’s of years hence based on the supposed impact of an essential life sustaining trace gas which makes up less than one half of 1% by volume of the Earth’s atmosphere?? Surely there are greater forces at work driving the historical cycle of climate change.

    If you have read this far then ponder these TWO variable dynamics among “who knows how many” other factors contribute to Earth’s “climate change”.

      Hate to disappoint you but Mark Twain used that line in every city he spoke at in his world book tour.

      Do you really think the wise and all-knowing Al Gore is rubbing elbows with the deplorable redneck boobs living in Tennessee? That’s just a mailing address for political purposes. His Highness, The Great and Powerful Al, is much too busy flying in his Gulfstream to tip cocktails in Davos or Paris with his benefactors of the Hollywood elite.
