Snowing in California

It’s already starting in the Tahoe basin.

“This photo is from the National weather service today,” says reader Chris von Duering.  “Mount Rose Highway  between Reno and Incline Village.”

I don’t know if this is unusual or not, but it’s a long way from the predictions by climate ‘expert’ Dr. David Viner.

Back in the year 2000, Dr Viner, senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, announced that within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”.

“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” said Viner.

David Parker, at the Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research in Berkshire, echoed Viner’s warning. Ultimately, children “could have only virtual experience of snow,” said Parker.”Via the internet, they might wonder at polar scenes – or eventually “feel” virtual cold.”

  1. Growing up in So Cal it was well into Nov that once in a while Saddleback (Santiago peak) would get snow. In the Early 70’s I noticed snow above Whitewater on the I-10 would last until Late June. In the mountains of San Diego, their is enough snow removal equipment to to handle anything that might blow in. But that was rare. Big Bear Lake is in the 30’s last night! Kinda early?

  2. It just started also in Italy, I sent a mail yesterday about it. Is cold phenomena accelerating ad involving new areas or it is only an idea of mine?

  3. Mammoth mountain has fifty years of snowfall data on its website during winter. It shows that Aug/September snowfall was regular in the 1970s but mostly absent thereafter.

    So although this has barely happened for 40 years, historical records show it was regular in the 1970s.

  4. you’re getting yours early
    and Aus is still holding their snow late for us in sept, and not just a teensy bit but I gather still ski able

  5. We are just beginning the third major Grand Solar Minimum (GSM) since the 1600’s . Distinguishing features of a GSM are extreme weather, both hot and cold, and a major increase in geological events like earthquakes and volcanoes. Believe there is major research that shows we would be in much colder world if it weren’t
    for modern agricultural practices and the burning of fossil fuels.

    • This “major research” not to be taken seriously, if it propagates that the burning of fossil fuels affects the Earth’s climate!

  6. That story of Viner saying there would be no snow was first published in the “Independent”, a left wing UK media outlet.
    They removed the story from their site about three years ago because it was one of the most searched stories and the management did not like that.
    Fake news in action.
