Montana Governor Declares Emergency

This comes from the Sacramento Bee of all places.

Montana Gov. Steve Bullock declared an emergency on Sunday for areas hit by an historic early-season snowstorm.

The storm brought heavy, wet snow and high winds that closed roads, downed trees and caused scattered power outages.

Snowing in eight states

Winter storm warnings were posted for parts of western Montana, northern Idaho and northeast Washington, with snow also forecast for parts of Wyoming, Utah, Oregon, Nevada and California.

The brunt of the storm hit Montana where up to 2 feet (61 cm) of snow fell in the mountains on Saturday and a record 14 inches (35.5 cm) fell in Great Falls. Snow was still falling on Sunday.

“Remember those pix from last year of them trying to harvest wheat in the snow?” asks Bill.

  1. “Remember those pix from last year of them trying to harvest wheat in the snow?” asks Bill”
    No I don’t but…we have farmers all across the Inland NW that still haven’t finished harvest because it wasn’t ready to cut…now we have the moisture back and the wheat is going to sprout on the stems. I think when the dept of ag does the number crunch… US harvest numbers are going to show the USA harvest is way down.

  2. Where could I find the percentage of days without sunspots in 2019 besides Space weather.com ? That website no longer works on my pute(s).
    This is about tracking solar minimum. Record solar minimum.
    Thanks

      The single large sun spot is visable on the site main image rotating into view in the Southern Equetorial regions which show Sc24 is bouncing on the bottom of its cycle and could well do so for another year.

  4. curious about the temps near my friend, I slid the earth on nullschool earlier this evening and the temps over what I figure are the mountain tops were Minus 5.6C and a lot of the areas leading down to near the middle of ‘merica were rather nippy.
    Spring looks more like autumn/winter I reckon.

  5. The Alberta University VP had to resign for stating the BENEFITS of climate change. Honesty does not appear to be appreciated.
