“Still expecting snow in Mt Washington, New Hampshire Tue/Wed with below freezing temps as well as some snow for areas of the Adirondacks above 3,000 ft thru Tuesday, with a mixture of rain/snow in parts of the Midwest Sunday,” says reader Kenneth Lund. “Temps could drop below freezing overnight over parts of Nebraska thru West Virginia and north thru New England, depending on elevation, thru early next week. Certainly cold for May!”

“May snow on the Great Plains of the Dakotas today,” says reader Ryan. “That’s a sign of the global warming they are so certain about, isn’t it?”

  1. It really is winter here. The ski resort could still be open a month past closing, which is NOT common here despite what people say here, and by that I mean no bare patches to the lowest elevations! (Granted, they built up some base there with snowmaking early season. Not a lot though that way.

  2. Coloradoan here. We’re expecting 8-16 inches of snow today.
    Thank goodness for global warming, or we’d really be in trouble!

  3. The lack of apparent warming is why alarmists have renamed “global warming” to “climate change.” This of course fits, since the climate ALWAYS changes.

    • Of course it does. Our climate has been endlessly changing for billions of years, and will continue to do so long after man is gone. Ignore the endless string of headlines from the MSM, they are irrelevant in virtually everything but drama.

  4. I agree that the Grand Solar Minimum is here, but in the Rocky Mountain West, there is a saying … don’t plant until after Mother’s Day. It’s not unusual to have freezes or snow well into May.

    • Agree! Per the Rocky Mountains…It all depends on altitude! I’ve been in sleet and snow in Colorado and Wyoming in late May, June, July, and August. I left my cabin (10,200 feet) in the Snowy Range on the first day of summer 2019- after scraping about 2 inches of fresh snow off the vehicle.

    • Indeed. Don’t be taken in by “Ice age will be here tomorrow” any more than “Earth is burning up”. These things take time and at their fastest unfold over decades. Mother nature knows hers stuff and has been doing this for billions of years.

  5. Mind blown!

    I had no idea ‘Robert’ was the same as ‘Robert Felix’. I just found out via some footnotes in Ben Davidson’s new book. The odd thing is that I have no idea how I came across this site in the first place.

    Great site!
