California – 6½ feet of snow in 72 hours


Homewood ski area has received 79 inches  (200 cm) of snow in the past 72 hours.

Squaw Valley and June Mountain aren’t far behind.

  1. When it comes to water in California it’s either feast or famine.
    Dendrochronology shows that California suffered a mega drought from 800 AD to 1050 AD that lasted nearly 250 years.
    None of it had anything to do with man caused global warming.
    But if a drought of that scale was happening now people would be screaming about how human activity is destroying the planet.

    • Yes, American Indians have oral histories regarding that drought. It’s probably what destroyed the Anazasi civilization but, of course, they didn’t use computer modeling so we can’t regard their history as scientific. Or can we . . .

    • You’re absolutely right. One of the big problems is that nobody seems to be interested in looking at the history of climate in an objective manner. If they did, perhaps they wouldn’t let themselves be fooled by all this AGW bull.

  2. Study finds potential instability in Atlantic Ocean water circulation system
    In fact, changes in the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) — the same deep-water ocean current featured in the movie “The Day After Tomorrow” — could occur quite abruptly, in geologic terms, the study says. The research appears in the Jan. 4 online edition of the journal Science Advances.
    “We show that the possibility of a collapsed AMOC under global warming is hugely underestimated,” said Wei Liu, a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Geology and Geophysics at Yale University and lead author of the study. Liu began the research when he was a graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and continued it at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, prior to coming to Yale.

  3. California hydrologists say California is only at 50% of normal. Nevada is at 180%. Not sure what they’re drinking!
