               .I'm including extreme rainfall here because that's what causes
                ice ages ... excess precipitation. If  you want to know how much
                snow would fall  if a rainstorm should change to snow, just add
                a zero.  (One inch of rain - add a zero - will turn to 10 inches of
                snow.) Plus, rainfall has increased so dramatically that I'm only
                including accumulations of two inches or more.

Wow!!!  My husband and I have read Not by fire but by Ice twice, and given it to
numerous people.  So we couldn’t wait to read Magnetic Reversals and Evolutionary
Leaps.
It’s great! I was especially interested in it, because I have a Bachelor of Science
degree with a major in Zoology, from Sydney University, Australia.

Coldest Dec Start in Nashville since 1942 - Eighth Coldest Dec Start on Record
13 Dec 10 - Hi Robert, I am an avid reader of your blog; thought I would pass
along a statement from the local National Weather Service

 

...IF YOU WERE THINKING THAT THE WEATHER HAS BEEN UNUSUALLY COLD OVER THE LAST WEEK OR SO...YOU ARE RIGHT. IN FACT...THE COLD WEATHER DURING THE FIRST TEN DAYS OF THE MONTH MADE IT THE EIGHTH COLDEST START TO THE MONTH OF DECEMBER ON RECORD IN NASHVILLE...AND THE COLDEST START TO DECEMBER SINCE 1942. TEMPERATURES ARE AVERAGING 10 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL SO FAR THIS MONTH...AND WITH ANOTHER BLAST OF FRIGID AIR NOW ON OUR DOORSTEP...IT LOOKS LIKE OUR TIME IN THE DEEP FREEZE IS NOT YET OVER.

I have no idea how any reasonable person could not
see that we are having a climate shift of some degree.

Record Cold in Alaska - By meteorologist Bill Steffen - (Excerpts) -  Get a load of these low temperatures in September:  -11F near Beaver Village, -10 near Chalkyitsik.  Chicken, Alaska was -5.  Bettles reached ZERO on Monday, tying the coldest temperature ever recorded there in September.  Eielson AFB near Fairbanks was +3, the coldest temperature they have ever had in any September (the average low for Fairbanks now is 28). 

 

Daily records set at Eagle (0),  Gulkana (3), King Salmon (17) and Cold Bay (31)  The Alaska cold is going to meet the southern warmth over the Great Lakes this winter.  The fun should start in November.

Still skiing in California - Northern California's Boreal Mountain Resort will re-open its Castle Peak Quad chairlift for skiers and snowboarders this weekend to enjoy a ribbon of white leftover from this spring's record snowfall.
 

"Almost 500 inches of snow fell this winter, with several feet falling after Boreal closed (in April)," said Boreal's marketing director Jon Slaughter. "We decided since all this snow was on the mountain, it would be fun to enjoy it for a couple days in July."
 

The natural snow was bulldozed into place from other parts of the resort and groomed into a nice smooth run.

Oregon - Record-setting rain damages crops - Record-setting June rains and a wetter than usual May have put farm crops at risk for disease and pushed backed the date that fruits and vegetables will be ready for market, says this article on KVAL news.
 

"It looks a lot more like March than it looks like June," said Tom Lively of Lively Organics. "We haven't been able to get in with tillers or hoes because it's so muddy that it would just clump up in the equipment."
 

"By Saturday, pretty much all the melons we had planted had root rotted and died in spots," Lively said. "We just had big rows of dead melons."
 

Meanwhile, the garlic crop isn't doing any better. A fungus - caused by the excess rain - is destroying the garlic bulbs.

Redding fell to 34 degrees on Saturday, shattering the 39 degree low set in 1960. Red Bluff fell to 37 degrees, breaking the 40 degree-record set in the 1960s, while Stockton Airport never exceeded 67 degrees, two degrees lower than the coldest high for that day set in 1943.

Excellent WINTER Skiing at Squaw Valley - Email from reader
Dear Robert,

While basking in the afterglow of an April the 29th fresh day I asked the grizzled vets of decades of skiing at Squaw Valley, CA if any remembered a winter day this late in spring?  The answer was Hell No! 

 

I savored my hot coffee at 1 PM in the base parking lot with snow falling and the mercury at 27 degrees!!!!  If the wind hadn't knocked out the upper part of the mountain the conditions would have been epic with Granite Chief receiving over 29 inches of gods own fresh stuff!

Record snowfall in Burlington both yesterday and today

Record-setting rains in New England - Flood waters have receded in Rhode Island and surrounding regions of New England, leaving hundreds of millions of dollars in damage, but no flood-related deaths.

 

It was the wettest March on record over most of coastal New England from New York City to Boston, and the wettest month of any kind for several stations, including Providence, Rhode Island, and Blue Hill Observatory, Massachusetts. Rainfall and  flooding in many cases exceeded the records set 55 years ago during August 1955, when hurricanes Connie and Diane hit New England within five days of each other.

Northeast Blizzard Closing Interstates, Collapsing Roofs - The worst of the "Second Blizzard of 2010" is dumping on the Northeast, says this article on accuweather.com. Snowfall from southeastern Pennsylvania to much of the New York metro area is expected to reach 12 to 18 inches.

Stretches of I-76, I-78, I-80, I-81 and I-83 in Pennsylvania, I-80 in New Jersey and I-64 in Virginia are closed, and multiple roofs were failing today in Delaware under the weight of the snow.

Snowing from northern Virginia to Connecticut - Whiteout conditions in Washington, D.C. Blizzard warnings for New York City and parts of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland. Up to 12 inches of snow expected in New York City. Thousands remain without power from the last blizzard. Salt supplies in Maryland dwindling.
 

Both Washington and Philadelphia need about 9 more inches of snow to give them their snowiest winters since 1884.
 

That should be an easy target, because Washington is bracing a foot of snow or more, while as much as 20 inches could again bury both Baltimore and Philadelphia.
 

In West Virginia, Gov. Joe Manchin urged people to clear the snow from the roofs of public buildings to avoid collapse.

Flooding in Baltimore - Email from a reader

I just wanted to say that in 1936 we had a spell of cold and snow. The bay in Baltimore had to have air-dropped explosives to clear the ice for shipping. The next event I wanted to present to you is I believe the Johnston flood was at this time. With so many paved areas and new homes I believe we will be in for it.

More on the way - Snowiest winter season ever - A new snowstorm will soon hit New York City, southern New England, and drop up to a foot of snow from Washington, D.C. to Philadelphia yet again, says this article on accuweather.com.

"Lower temperatures, strong winds and deep, powdery snow could make this the worst of the two storms even in areas that were hit hard with the last."

"From a meteorological standpoint the prospect of two blizzards in less than a week for the same area is absolutely amazing! Three storms delivering over a foot of snow in one season is unheard of in some areas."

The new storm "could make the 2009-2010 winter season the snowiest ever for many mid-Atlantic cities."

Biggest snowstorm in Washington, D.C. in modern history - A record 2 1/2 feet - or more! - is forecast for the nation's Capitol tonight and tomorrow, says this article on yahoo.com.
 

The storm comes less than two months after a December storm dumped more than 16 inches of snow on Washington, which has received more than a foot of snow only 13 times since 1870.
 

"The heaviest on record was 28 inches in January 1922," the article continues. "The biggest snowfall for the Washington-Baltimore area is believed to have occurred in 1772, before official records were kept, when as much as 3 feet fell in the Washington-Baltimore area, an epic event George Washington and Thomas Jefferson mentioned in their diaries."

"Once again, areas from Roanoke to Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York City will be in the heart of the storm. These locations have already received two to four times their normal snowfall so far this winter. (Italics added.)

Roofs collapse due to weight of snow in Flagstaff, AZ - Flagstaff had already received 50.7 inches of snow through midday Friday, making it the third highest 5-day snow total there ever. Many roofs have collapsed due to the weight of the heavy snow. More roofs could collapse in the Four Corners area this weekend.
