Virginia NASCAR Race Snowed Out

“Climate Change is even ruining auto racing and consequently beer sales,” says reader.___________

The postponement at Martinsville Speedway came after upwards of 6 inches(15 cm)  of snow fell in the southwest Virginia region Saturday night.

Snow began falling in the track area Saturday afternoon, and several inches accumulated overnight.

This is the first Cup Series race to be postponed by snow since March 1993.

  1. Didn’t they tell us back in 1990 that snow would soon be a thing of the past? March 1993 and 2018 prove otherwise.

  2. Adapt 2030

    Orange Snow Covers European Peaks & Cyclone Hugo Hammers France (560)

    When Saharan dust storms of near record density meet late season blizzards across Eastern and Southern Europe, Orange snows blanket ranges and visible dust layers mark the hourly feet of snow dumping on the continent. From Sochi to Crete, eerie orange snows cover peaks and deep snows in Greece add to the strangeness of it all. More snows in Algeria and another more dense dust storm is on the way.
