Iowa snow 22 inches ABOVE NORMAL

Okay, check out the title of the story. Now read the last few paragraphs of the story that I highlighted. What's curious is that they didn't seem to tie the tornadoes to global warming. Instead, they're going after the freak-weather-climate-change angle. In other words, we're causing all this "abnormal" weather, which is silly.

Neat to see that this winter continues to defy global warming worldwide, however.

Severe storms, tornadoes batter Southeast -

Dozens of schools in central and eastern Iowa were closed or had delayed openings Monday and travel was not recommended on some highways because Sunday's storm dumped as much as 6 inches of snow, accompanied by wind gusting to 50 mph.

According to the weather service, a total of 18.5 inches of snow has fallen so far this month at the Des Moines International Airport, compared to the average 5 inches. So far this season, Iowa has gotten 48 inches compared to the normal 26 inches.
