It’s not ‘change. It’s drop!

Kenneth Lund

I wonder if the left wing media wanted to block out the fact that the temperature DROPPED 70 degrees in Denver.

So they use the word “change”. If it had been a 70 degree warm-up, you bet they would have used the word “rise.”

The headline should read “Second largest temperature “DROP” on record”

Oh, and the headline called it ‘surprise’ snowfall, rather than ‘record’ snowfall.

  1. you have to hand it to them..
    the use of weaselwords is beyond the norm and working up to stunning.
    and very true if a remp rise in a short time ever happened theyd be all over it like flies on poop as a climate extreme emergency panic event!
    a 20c drop from a stinking aussie 40c to 20c summerday when a southerly buster swings in is remarked on as we run for a light jumper, but the drop there.. was awesomely huge

  2. a question if someone from round there can answer it
    i have read of animals losing fur, sometimes forever after after a very hot day and then a cold drop with rain or hail in american areas where you tend to get those events
    any reports?
    called Rain Scald the effect is like they have been burnt with hot water

  3. Hmm

    The link I followed from the original story had this headline:-

    “From 83° To 13°: Our Temperature Drop Was Among The Largest On Record!”

    Looks like they not only said “dropped” but highlighted is “Was Among The Largest On Record!”

    And they highlighted that whilst this anomaly almost tied with the record in December 2008 in is extraordinary considering this was October some four to six weeks before “official” winter.

    “No other October dates even appear on the list of the top 25 largest changes over 1 or 2 days.”

    How is that not fair ?

    According to Google, rain scald or rain rot is a bacterial skin infection called Dermatophilus Congolensis that thrives in warm humid weather.

    I’m surprised I haven’t gotten it myself considering the miserable summers here in Missouri.

    I have seen occasions in the summer when the temp dropped 40F in an hour or so when a storm front moved in, but have not observed the phenomenon you mentioned. Not too surprising, tho, as I have never had much to do with livestock, and family pets are usually protected from extremes.

    However, I’m interested to know if it can happen that way. Those conditions may become more common. Maybe ask a veterinarian. Let us know if you find out, will you?
