  1. Hump day is June 21 and after that daylight wise it is down hill all the way to Dec 21. If the snowy weather persists until Hump day then we might have to take this more seriously. I have not noticed any more snow fall at Mt Washington since my last posting round the 15th – 16th of May. There isn’t any instant gratification in climatology. Change takes time.

  2. To me, 2017 could become another 1816, but this time, in the western United States, especially in Lassen Park, and the northern Sierra mountain range in California, but mostly in the high elevations (between 6000 and 7000 feet). Even in June, when Summer supposed to arrive there, it is still snowing! In 2017, like 1816 (201 years ago), it would become the “the year without Summer in the U.S., but this time in those mountain ranges in California that I mentioned above. Those poor people who live in California, where those mountain ranges are located, aren’t so lucky to see Summer arrive, and to them is like a never-ending Winter. At this rate, the ski resorts there would remain open for the entire year, that would help boost their business.
