  1. In July in 1963, I was in a snowstorm in Logan Pass (elevation 11,000 ft.) in Glacier National Park.
    I was brought up on the US Gulf Coast and the only snow I had seen before that was a slight sprinkling just before Christmas in Aransas Pass, Texas (elevation 5 ft.).

    Back then we just thought it was weather. Even when Dallas, Texas in 1981 and 82, we had ice storms and many Winter days below 0 DegF as well as many Summer days above 110 DegF during those same years.

    But that was before I heard of the NWO, and the plans of the wealthy elite spelled out as tenets of Agenda 21 of the NWO, or the global re-distribution of wealth scam, being facilitated by this AGW total HOAX.

    I’m ready to GET OUR GREAT AMERICA BACK and I’m voting for TRUMP! America First!

    If the Earth’s population is to be reduced as described in Agenda 21 of the NWO, may those creators and sympathizers of the NWO and Agenda21 become the first populous reductions.

  2. This might make a “glacier free Glacier Park” suggested last week in Yosemite more difficult. Especially since sunspots have plummeted to zero (have to say last time I checked they were in the twenties, which was still low, however I was surprised it’s blank even by a source that I think counts the slightest speck).

  3. Also, it’s been VERY consistently windy here since spring despite the national weather saying we’re in the doldrums. It seems mostly what they report on these days is lack of weather and heat, then they ignore when it rains in the Northwest or the monsoon starts. Completely ignore rain in the Southwest. Then again, despite it’s founder questioning global warming, they also seem to ignore the fact that there are cities other than Phoenix West of the Rockies, Seattle, Portland, don’t exist. Thankfully there’s an alternative now that they are becoming more of and Eastern regional station.

  4. I live in Northeastern NV. If I remember right, I had snow showers at my house (6000′) on July 31, 1995 and September 1, 1999. I’m over 500 miles south of Glacier National Park and their 600′ lower (Logan pass).
