Another winter storm warning with up to 2 feet of snow—for Hawaii.
“Possible blizzard conditions will affect Hawaii’s Big Island summits into late this week,” warns The Weather Channel.
Trying to normalize what is not normal?
By H. B. Schmidt
This is the second winter weather warning for the 2017-18 season. This comes after several big snow events during the 2016-17 winter season made the headlines. How many more will be issued before the NH winter is done?
It appears that The Weather Channel is trying to minimize the significance of these events. I’ve noticed over the past few years that their language has morphed from “snow falls every year in Hawaii—but only at the summits” to “heavy snowfall in Hawaii is unusual” to “snowfall is common” as evidenced from the link below. My belief is that people’s memories are short and that TWC is doing everything it can to normalize what’s not normal. The only question to ask is, Why?
