Unrelenting winter weather...before winter starts

The parade of bad news for the alarmists is unrelenting. Must be karma. By the way...winter OFFICIALLY starts tomorrow, though we could say it started empirically back in Autumn. - Weather Blogs - Weather News:

A major winter storm that has created chaos from the Midwest to the Northeast will slam Boston and southern New England with heavy snow tonight. A second storm will follow close behind this weekend, while a blast of arctic air and a third storm will cross the country in the days leading up to Christmas.

So very early numbers for the three big movies opening in wide release in some major markets Friday looked severely lower from Hollywood predictions. - Weather Blogs - Weather News:
Another winter storm will cross the Midwest into the Northeast over the balance of the weekend, followed by a blast of arctic air. Meanwhile, a storm that will create blizzard conditions in the Northwest could cause trouble in the Midwest Tuesday and the East Christmas Eve day.

The Midwest and the East will barely have time to dig out from the snow and ice that blasted the regions on Friday before the next system moves through by Sunday.

More snow, cold head for Aspen |

A winter storm that dumped up to a foot of snow on local ski slopes over the past two days has moved out, but another system is headed for Aspen Friday night. So are plummeting temperatures and a brutal wind chill.
