Record winter: psychos still believe


Record snow smothers New England -

CONCORD, N.H. — Another snowstorm swept across New England on Wednesday, toppling seasonal snowfall records and dumping so much heavy snow on buildings that some collapsed under the weight.

"People can't keep up with the snow. They think it's going to stop, but it's just not stopping," said Shawn Greenwood, owner of Greenwood Construction, in St. Johnsbury, Vt.

"I've been roofing for 20 years and this is the worst I've ever seen," he said. "I was shoveling a roof off one day two weeks ago and the house next door caved in."

In Vermont, Burlington's 7.6 inches pushed the official snowfall past the February record of 34.3 inches and the winter record from December, January and February of 96.9 inches.

Concord already had set a record for the snowiest December, January and February, and the storm pushed the total for the three months to 97.5 inches. For the entire snow season, Concord has seen 99.6 inches, off the record of 122 inches, set in the winter of 1873-74, but still enough to make it the 10th snowiest winter on record.

In northern Maine, Caribou had seen 144.5 inches this season as of Wednesday morning, putting it on pace to break the record of 181.1 for the entire season, said National Weather Service meteorologist Mark Turner.

Parts of eastern New York state also had gotten as much as a foot of snow, closing dozens of schools in the region, mostly in the Albany area.

Farther west, lake effect snow fed by moisture from Lake Michigan piled up nearly a foot deep Wednesday in northwest Indiana, and forecasters said totals could reach 20 inches by Thursday morning.

Indiana State Police diverted traffic from the eastbound lanes of the Indiana Toll Road near Michigan City for about three hours Wednesday morning because large trucks could not get any traction on the snow-covered pavement.

Snow also blew across the Ohio Valley and farther south, closing schools in parts of Ohio, Kentucky, middle and eastern Tennessee and western North Carolina.

The weather service said some areas in the mountains of western North Carolina could see up to 10 inches of snow.

The actual story isn't what's interesting. What's really funny is reading some of the comments from the warmanatics at the bottom. Predictably, AGW is causing all the cold and snow. At the same time, it causes all the warm weather, so global warming causes both cold and hot weather! Shows just how complete the brainwashing is:

Nobody has taken me up yet on my bet that 2008 will be yet another top 10 warmest year globally when NASA gathers the data next January. Come on all of you in denial, any takers? I'll even put some stakes on it. Lets say the loser has to change their avatar to a picture of a bag of dooches.

jammer97 you are a complete dumb@ss. Extreme winters in one area Northeast and severe drought in the South is the personification of global warming. Do thy homework.

Actually warming could result in increased snowfall. Warmer air leads to more evaporation. If its 10 degrees outside instead of 0, its still cold enough to snow but the warmer temperature could lead to more snow than if it were 0. Got it? I have no idea if the temperature in New England have been warmer than usual this winter. My point is that more snow does not mean the end of the global warming theory. Want to make a bet that 2008 will again be one of the top 10 warmest years globally since record keeping began?

there was never this kind of severe snow and cold prior to global warming- just ask our most eminent climatologist with both a Nobel prize and an Oscar to his credit!!
