Do you suppose they’d like some global warming?

  1. I usually go home early or stay real late when it snows like that.
    Too many nuts out there.
    I remember driving across the old I-90 bridge at 10pm in 86 I think. Cars just abandoned.
    Looked like the end of the world.
    I don’t know why, but people in that part of the country just panic when it snows.

    • I noticed that when I was living in Seattle and we had only 8 inches. 8 inches?! 8 inches definitely was nothing to panic about when I lived (and drove) in Detroit years ago. I mean, busses were parked and their wheels blocked and people were freaking out. My godson and I lived in the area, so we went to Madison St. and watched the cars spin out.

      A friend of mine, who is from Michigan like me, says west Washingtonians cannot drive in snow. She’s right. They declare snow days when it’s an inch of snow on the ground.

  2. When “they” say the world will see global warming in 7, 10, 20, 50, whatever years, ask “what will it look like?”.

    When “they” (scientist, “green” businessman or woman, academic or layperson) ask “what do you mean?”, tell them, “people like you have been telling us since the 1980’s that the world would warm over the next 25 years to the point that winters would be without snow, all glaciers would be gone, the poles would be free of ice, lakes would dry up, yet seas would rise 3 to 60 feet, Polar Bears would vanish and NONE of that has transpired. In fact, we have set new records for cold and snow in many places and none of you ever mentioned that might even be in the realm of possiblity. So, now is your chance, put it on the line this time, we are all paying attention, what will “global warming” look like? When it happens this time, what’ll it be?” Snow? No snow? Ice? No ice? Glaciers? No glaciers? Polar Vortex? Or warm, snow-less winters? Tell us now but, because you say you are experts, tell us, and, warm or cold, own it.

    If you can’t do it (and you know you can’t), make yourselves useful, shut up and shovel my driveway.”

  3. I wonder how many of the car drivers really HAD to be out on the rds?
    emergency and critical industry workers I can understand, trucks because of owner/orindustry pressure to deliver
    but call me whatever you choose;-) .. I reckon anyone who didnt have a serious reason sho;ldnt be out, risking themselves and others.

    • When it comes to snow, it is usually the clueless drivers and lorries who will block the traffic. I carry snowchains in my two wheel drive yet I never used them in 20 years of mountain and scandinavian driving. Yet it is not uncommon to see some clueless people, who will ultimately block the roads for everybody. And the big semi trucks…

  4. I’m sure they don’t want global warming but I do think they’d feel less guilty about idling their cars, stuck in the snowing weather if they were paying an extra $0.50/gallon for a carbon tax.

  5. “Do you suppose they’d like some global warming?”

    Some probably blame the weather on global warming…. Deprogramming people who are brainwashed takes about 15 years according to ex KGB agent Yuri Bezmenov.

    • Unfortunately some people are like read only memory (ROM) chips — once programmed, that’s it. They never can be changed.

  6. Checking out other links, looks like the normal link to the Greenland Ice Mass has changed.

    Baltic surface tempreture and ice cover
    Arctic Ice cover, notice the 3m Ice over the pole region.
    The insert showing ice cover is very close to tracking mean.

    • I hope where you isnt in qld surrounded by rotting corpses and with 40c heat and mould and disease risks.
      I hear that ( LATE) theyve called for army assistance to try n clear some roads and get machinery in to try and bury the dead cows roos etc
      local councils sholdnt need to be begged! they should have been onto it
      1 dead and 10 ill with Meliodiosis from the filthy waters mud etc already

  7. Off topic but …

    Titled Not your typical Maui weather: First time snow falls in a Hawaii State Park on Feb. 9, 2019

    The Hawai‘i DLNR Division of State Parks reports that for perhaps the first time ever, snow has fallen in a Hawai‘i State Park on Saturday, Feb. 9, 2019. Polipoli State Park on Maui is blanketed with snow. It could also be the lowest elevation snow ever recorded in the state. Polipoli is at 6200 feet elevation.

  8. It’s not surprising Seattle grinds to a halt when it snows. When I lived there in 1993, we had the “Inaugural Day Storm” the day Clinton was inaugurated, with wind gusts of about 95 mph. (We called storms like that hurricanes where I grew up, in Louisiana.) And after the wind stopped it got cold. Really cold, with snow and freezing rain.

    Most everywhere in that area lost power for about a week, and the roads were mostly impassable. I remember hearing at the time that Seattle only had something like 22 snowplows for the whole metro area, so obviously, there were not many streets that got plowed. I was practically dying with a nasty flu, and no heat — ran out of firewood after a couple of days, so I escaped by flying to Vegas and checking into a hotel with 24-hour room service till the power was restored…. Much better than a hospital, and only about $20 a night, back when casinos practically gave away rooms in Vegas.

    (When the going gets rough, the tough get out of Dodge….)
