  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.) Rainfall has increased so       
  dramatically that I'm only including accumulations  
 of two inches or more.

Monster winter storm moves into Plains; motorists disappearing under 10-foot drifts
A winter storm stretching nearly from Canada to Mexico rolled out of the 
Rockies on Saturday, trapping drivers in 10-foot drifts.National Guard troops in tracked vehicles crawled through the blizzard to rescue 
hundreds of stranded motorists. "They're telling me it's zero visibility," said Maj. 
Gen. Mason Whitney, the state adjutant general. "They'll kind of bump into 
something and it'll turn out to be a car with people in it."

Parts of Interstate 70 from the Rockies to Kansas remained closed, along with several 
other major east-west highways. In New Mexico, Interstate 25 from Pueblo to Santa Fe 
was also closed, and most major roads from Kansas into Colorado remain closed until 
Colorado officials reopen their routes.

In Kansas, up to 18 inches of snow had fallen by Saturday in some areas, while up to 
a foot fell in southwestern and central Nebraska.

In North Dakota, transportation officials pulled snowplows off many roads because 
of reduced visibility. Bismarck reported more than 7 inches of snow, and areas south 
could get 14 inches by Sunday.

Dec 29 Denver Gas Stations Run Low on Fuel
29 Dec 06 - Denver drivers braved the snow Thursday and lined up at pumps to fill their 
tanks, even as some gas stations ran out of fuel. Many people filled up during the day,
anticipating fuel shortages in the wake of the second snowstorm in a week. And gas 
stations - reeling from last week's blizzard, which disrupted tanker deliveries for nearly 
three days and drove down fuel stock - ran out of supply.

Dec 29 Second storm in a week pounds Colorado
The second storm in a week pounded Colorado, dumping more than 2 feet 
of snow in the foothills and threatening to close Denver airport.

Up to a foot of snow could fall on the eastern Plains before the storm moves
out of Colorado by Sunday.

In New Mexico, the storm forced closure of Interstate 40 from Albuquerque
to Santa Rosa and Interstate 25 from Bernalillo to Las Vegas, N.M. Residents
of Cheyenne, Wyo., braced for the second snowstorm in a week.

Dec 24 Record snowfall kills woman near Cheyenne
24 Dec 06 - A winter storm that walloped southeast Wyoming this
week claimed one life and left behind more than a foot of snow.
Alice Lloyd, 61, of Laramie County died from exposure after she
abandoned a stranded vehicle east of Cheyenne to seek help, officials
said Thursday.

Total snowfall varied widely. Chugwater recorded 17 inches, while
Cheyenne received 12.5 inches, the largest recorded one-day total for
December. The previous record was 11.6 inches on Dec. 27, 1979.

Dec 23 Twelve inches of rain in one day in Louisiana - The community of Larose, 
about 60 miles south of New Orleans, got an estimated 10 to 12 inches of rain, 
said meteorologist Fred Zeigler said. Parts of southeastern Louisiana, leading 
up to New Orleans, received 6 to 8 inches.

Dec 21 Massive snowstorm shuts down Colorado
Denver paralyzed by 25 inches of snow; air, ground travel grinds to a halt
More than 3 feet of snow fell in the Colorado mountains, and up to 25 inches
fell in the Denver metro area, including 2 more inches on Thursday. A snowstorm also dumped
up to 18 inches on New Mexico, and the National Weather Service warned that another storm
was taking aim at New Mexico Friday night. More than 1,000 flights were canceled at Denver
International Airport

Heavy snow also fell on southeastern Wyoming, closing interstate highways. Parts of Nebraska and Kansas were also getting snow and ice.

Long stretches of Interstates 70 and 25, the main east-west and north-south routes through the
Mountain West, were closed. Interstate 76 was closed from Denver to Nebraska.

Dec 20 Storm could bring two feet snow to Denver foothills - The National Weather Service posted
blizzard warnings for most of eastern Colorado and the Interstate 25 corridor, saying that metro
Denver could expect up to 20-24 inches of snow in parts of the foothills just west of the city. Further north, snowfall estimates ranged from 2 to 3 feet, while up to 20 inches of snow were
expected on the Plains.

Drawing moisture from the Pacific, the slow-moving storm dropped over a foot of snow
in Colorado’s southwestern mountains Tuesday, on top of the foot or more than had fallen
over the weekend.

Durango Mountain Resort reported 17 inches of new snow and Wolf Creek ski area
had 19 inches. More snow was expected overnight.

Dec 13 Seattle, WA---One inch of rain in 45 minutes. Just imagine if that rain had fallen as snow ...  
10 inches of snow. Let it snow like that for 24 hours, and you'd have 320 inches - almost 27 feet
- in one day. That's how ice ages begin.

Record snow in Illinois - Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich declared Knox
County and 48 other counties state disaster areas after last week's storm
dropped record or near-record snowfall across a large portion of the state.

Five days and 1,800 truckloads of snow later, the city of Galesburg is still
digging out from Friday's snowfall.

Death toll from storm rises to 23 - The Missouri National Guard 
deployed to the St. Louis area after Thursday's snow and ice storm 
to make sure people were surviving without electric light and heat

The St. Louis-based utility Ameren Corp. reported nearly 195,000
outages in Illinois and Missouri on its website early Tuesday.

"We've had some ice storms before. This one puts them to shame,"
said Ron Zdellar, vice president of energy for AmerenUE, who has
worked for the company for 35 years.

The number of deaths blamed on the storm rose Monday to at least
23, with three more deaths reported in Missouri and one more in Illinois.

Winter storm pounds Midwest - The National Weather Service predicted six to 12 inches 
of snow in the Chicago area. "There could be times where some areas see 2 inches of snow
per hour," said Tim Halbach, a meteorologist in the Chicago suburb of Romeoville.

The same wintry system struck Thursday from Texas to Michigan, with near-blizzard
conditions forecast in southeastern Wisconsin.

Snowfall in parts of Oklahoma ranged from 2 inches to nearly a foot, while parts of
Illinois prepared for 6 to 12 inches.

In the Texas Panhandle, roads were covered with ice and up to 7 inches of snow.

About 2.4 million customers across central and southern Illinois and parts of Missouri
were without power after ice snapped tree limbs and power limbs.

Seattle keeps breaking rainfall records
November 2006 has been as the wettest month at Sea-Tac Airport since the 
National Weather Service began measuring rainfall there in 1945. And there 
are still eight days to go in November.

A total of 13.11 inches of rain had fallen as of midnight Tuesday, beating 
the old record of 12.92 inches of rain in a single month set in January 1953.

In Seattle itself, rainfall records date back to 1891. The all-time record — 15.33 
inches in December 1933 — will be shattered if a little less than 2.5 inches falls 
by month's end . . . which is highly likely.

Flooding's toll on national parks and forests: $50 Million

22 Nov 06 - Fixing all the forest roads and trails that lace Washington state's 
flood-hammered mountains could cost more than $50 million. Mount Rainier 
National Park alone suffered about $30 million in damage, a level unseen in 
the 107 years since its creation.

Other national forests in Washington and Oregon face extensive repairs, 
particularly the Gifford Pinchot National Forest, which includes Mount St. 
Helens, and the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. The North 
Cascades National Park and Olympic National Park also saw roads washed 
away.

Record early snow in Florida and South Carolina 
(where’s the global warming?)
A coastal storm driving cold air southwards across South Carolina 
ended with the earliest snowfall on record in Charleston. The snow, 
just a trace, fell during a thunderstorm, producing the rare 
phenomenon of 'thundersnow'. Such an event is unprecedented 
before Thanksgiving


The cold air continued south on Wednesday and eventually 
resulted in a few flakes of snow in Orlando, Florida, the first 
snow recorded in Florida during November since 1912.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/world/news/23112006news.shtml

Earliest-ever snowflakes in Florida
In fact, the first November snow on record.

As my friend Ken puts it, “If there’s snow in Charleston, SC in November,  
if there's three feet of snow in Colorado in mid September, if Michigan and 
Illinois have had the earliest snowfall on record, if sea levels have fallen 
so low in the last 15 years that boats can't pass through canals anymore, 
how in the world can there be global warming ?? 

I dunno, Ken.

Eighteen inches of rain in 36 hours on Mount Rainier! 
Just imagine if that rain had fallen as snow.

When meteorologists try to predict how much snow will fall if a
rainstorm should turn to snow, they add a zero.

That’s 180 inches of snow - 15 feet - almost two stories - in 36 hours.

That’s how ice ages begin.

If you are familiar with Mount Rainier and the park roads etc,
check out the damage from last week’s storms.

Wettest November in Seattle history — 
and they're only half way through the month

6 Nov 06 – Yesterday’s storm pushed Seattle’s rain total to 11.64 inches
for the month, eclipsing the November record set in 1998.

What's more, forecasters say this could wind up as the wettest month in
area history if the rain keeps up, which is likely. The end of November is
historically the stormiest time of the year for the Northwest, said University
of Washington meteorologist Cliff Mass.

The wettest month in Seattle history, with 15.33 inches of rain, occurred in
December 1933.

"It's certainly an oddball year," said Mass. January of this year already ranks
as the area's fifth-wettest month on record with 11.65 inches of precipitation.

The most intense October snowstorm to hit the state in several years swept through 
Colorado this week. In Denver, the snow was reported to be falling at a rate of 3 inches 
(7.6cm) per hour, prompting cancellation of around 100 flights at Denver International 
Airport. Denver suburbs reported 10 inches (25.4cm) of snow lying on the ground by 
the end of Thursday. Large October snowstorms are common in Colorado, but this was the strongest in several years, National Weather Service spokesman Carl Burroughs said.

Long-haul trucker says it’s snowing heavily in Utah
Mr. Felix,

I am a long haul truck driver (own our own truck so are directly responsible for
destroying the global climate). I drove down through Utah yesterday (10-17-06)
and must tell you it was quite a snow storm on I-15, I-70 and US-89. The snow
was piling up heavily on the roadway, I estimate over 8" on the road itself.
According to local radio, the temperatures ranged from 10 to 25 degrees below normal.

Thought you might be interested,
Benjamin Napier

Thanks, Benjamin … more evidence of global warming … err, climate change.

6 Deaths Blamed on Freak Snow Storm
Four days after the record-setting snowstorm hit Buffalo, NY, nearly
200,000 homes and businesses remained without power, and carbon
monoxide poisoning from a generator was blamed for three deaths.

At least three other people died earlier in the storm, which dumped
up to two feet of heavy snow on the area.

``This is certainly a storm and restoration effort that ranks among the
most significant we've ever had,'' said National Guard spokesman
Alberto Bianchetti.
http://www.guardian.co.uk/worldlatest/story/0,,-6152415,00.html

Officials may call it a “freak” storm, but as we head deeper into
the coming ice age, I fear that such storms will become more
commonplace.

Dan Hammer, you nailed it! 
Extremely brutal weather at the end of next week
9 Oct 06 - My friend Dan Hammer made a bold forecast:

"It looks like the 13th and 14th of October will be extremely 
brutal with many records falling  for the coldest air—ever—
for so early in the season in some places," says Dan. "Many 
record  low maximums will fall. You will see endless snowfall 
records for those days. This freeze  is going deep into the 
south. It is amazing for so early in the year."

Buffalo slammed by snow; 380,000 lose power - rare early October snowstorm dumped up to 
2 feet of snow on western New York, prompting widespread blackouts, closing schools and
halting traffic.

By early Friday, 14 inches of snow had fallen at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport ,
with reports of 2 feet elsewhere, said Tom Paone, a meteorologist with the National Weather
Service. The snow was expected to continue throughout the morning.

On Thursday, 8.3 inches of heavy snow set the record for the "snowiest" October day in
Buffalo , said meteorologist Tom Niziol. The previous record was set in 1917. "This is an
extremely rare event for this early in the season," Niziol said.

It’s the snowiest October day on record, said NBC Weather Plus meteorologist Bill Karins.

Earliest snowfall since record-keeping began in 1871 - Record amounts of snow fell on parts of Michigan today, and Chicago saw its earliest snowfall since record-keeping began in 1871, according to the National Weather Service.

This is a heavy-duty, just-like-the-olden-days early-season outbreak of cold," said Atlanta
meteorologist Paul Kocin.

The storm has already brought a half-inch of snow to the Grand Rapids area, breaking a
97-year-old record for snowfall on Oct. 12.

Parts of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan could receive a foot of snow by tomorrow night,
forecasters said.

Detroit has recorded a trace of snow so far, just shy of marking its earliest snowfall
on record.

"Summer" Snow Hammers Colorado - Snow is falling by the foot in the high country. 
Today is the first day of autumn, but in places like Silverton Mountain, it was already winter.

"We had people up there skiing today and snowboarding," said Aaron Brill, manager of
Silverton Mountain. The resort received as much as 36 inches of snow in places since
Thursday. "It was snowing so hard, with whiteout conditions, that we could not access
the upper mountain," Brill said.

Breckenridge had 22 inches of snow about halfway up the mountain, with another foot 
of snow expected overnight. "We might have 3 feet of snow," said Nicky DeFord,
 spokeswoman for Breckenridge Ski Resort.

Snowfall in other ski towns: Keystone, 15 inches; Beaver Creek, 20 inches; Vail, 24 inches;
 Silverthorne, 8 inches; Dillon 7 inches. "It looks like a winter wonderland except for the 
trees with leaves on them," DeFord said. said. http://www.rockymountainnews.com/drmn/local/article/0,1299,DRMN_15_5015587,00.html

Up to 200,000 ordered to flee Northeast flooding - Up to 200,000 people in the 
Wilkes-Barre area were ordered to evacuate their homes Wednesday because 
of rising water on the Susquehanna River, swelled by a record-breaking deluge.

Thousands more were ordered to leave their homes in New Jersey , New York  
and Maryland . Rescue helicopters plucked residents from rooftops as rivers 
and streams surged over their banks, washed out roads and bridges, and cut 
off villages in some of the worst flooding in the region in decades.

If all of that rain had fallen as snow ...
10 June 06 - A winter-like weather pattern that stalled off New England 
has dumped more than 18 inches of rain on Boston since the beginning of May.

A series of low-pressure areas keep drawing moisture from the warm Atlantic
 Ocean current and spitting it back down on New England.

``If it was winter, we'd be getting snow, a lot of it," said Frank Keimig, manager 
of the Climate System Research Center at the University of Massachusetts at 
|Amherst.

If that rain had fallen as snow, we’d be digging out of 180 inches of the white stuff.

Freezing temperatures devastate grape crops across several states 
Late April frosts devastate buds on grape vines in several states as
temperatures drop to 24 degrees.

Losses were estimated at 90 percent in Michigan and 75 percent in Ohio. The
National Grape Cooperative, which owns Welch's, estimated that its New York
growers lost 30-33 percent of their grapes.

Michigan’s Gov. Jennifer M. Granholm yesterday requested federal disaster
assistance for the state's fruit and vegetable farmers, while New York’s Gov.
George Pataki and members of New York 's congressional delegation pursue
federal disaster assistance to keep growers on their feet.

This freeze is likely to force some affected vineyard operations out of business,"
said a letter from New York 's congressional delegation to U.S. Department of
Agriculture. New York is the nation's third largest grape grower behind California
and Washington .

Snowfall in California mountains smashes previous records - At the end of last week,
California’s Mammoth ski resort announced that an astounding 632 inches (16 meters) 
of snow had fallen since October. The previous record was set in 1992/93 when the resort
 received 617 inches of snow from October to early spring. Average snowfall in a typical 
season is around 400 inches, making this years snowfall some 200 inches more than usual.

Scotland has also seen heavy snowfall in the mountains in the last several weeks. "I believe 
we are having one of the best seasons for spring snow for at least 10 years if not 50,” said the manager at the Glencoe Ski Centre.

Ski resort reports record snow - Alpine Meadows ski resort at Lake Tahoe reports more snowfall than during any other month in 35 years.

The resort has received more than 16 feet of snow at its base lodge since March 1, and more than 22 feet of snow midway up the mountain.

That's a record. It surpasses the previous high of 15.6 feet that fell at Alpine during the "Miracle March" of 1991, and the most snowfall for a single month since 1970.

Other areas have seen much the same. At Tahoe City , nearly 6.8 feet of snow has fallen since March 1, making it the fourth snowiest March since 1931. More snow is likely on Friday.

"There's been a huge increase. It's dramatically improved the snowpack," said Gary Barbato, a hydrologist with the National Weather Service in Reno .

The change was particularly remarkable in some lower elevations of the Sierra, Barbato said. At Fallen Leaf Lake near South Lake Tahoe, for example, the snowpack went from 39 percent of average on March 1 to 166 percent on Wednesday. ( Reno Gazette Journal)

Snow in the desert  - The latest in a series of Pacific storms has brought snow to desert areas of California and Nevada and to low levels in the San Francisco Bay Area, forcing closure of some roads. The hills around Los Angeles and San Diego also saw a covering of snow on Friday.

Carson City, Nevada received 15-25cm (6-10 inches) of snow, and Las Vegas could receive up to five inches by the end of the weekend.

A series of storms have dumped up to 3.4 meters (11 feet) of snow in parts of the Sierra Nevada range above Lake Tahoe in the last ten days. This compares to the average snowfall for the entire month of March of only 2.3m (7.5ft). Overall, the snowpack in the California/Nevada Walker River basin currently stands at 137% of normal.

Biggest Snowstorm in New York City since 1869 - A record-breaking storm 
buried sections of the Northeast under more than 2 feet of snow on Sunday, 
marooning thousands of air travelers.

The National Weather Service said 26.9 inches of snow had fallen in Central 
Park
, the most for a single storm since record-keeping started in 1869. The old 
record was 26.4 inches in December 1947.

Second heaviest snowfall on record in New York City ... and it’s still snowing
A major nor’easter slammed the mid-Atlantic and Northeast states from Virginia 
to Maine on Sunday with nearly 2 feet of windblown snow. The snow neared 
record levels, blacked out power to thousands of customers, and shut down 
air travel out of Washington, Philadelphia, Boston, Baltimore, Providence, RI., 
Hartford, CT., and points in between. New Jersey Transit suspended all bus 
service statewide.

Wind gusts up to 60 mph blew the snow sideways and threatened coastal 
flooding in New England as lightning lit up the falling snow in the New York 
and Philadelphia areas.

By late Sunday morning, 22.8 inches of snow had fallen in Central Park, the city's 
second heaviest snowfall on record, surpassed only by the 26.4 inches that fell in 
December 1947.

Elsewhere, 21 inches of snow had fallen by early afternoon in parts of Maryland, 
New Jersey, Connecticut, and West Caln Township west of Philadelphia. This 
matched - in less than one day! - Philadelphia's average for an entire winter of 
about 21 inches.

Nor’easter set to bring snow from Alabama to Maine - A deepening low pressure system is forecast to track northeastwards across the eastern USA Saturday and Sunday, bringing winter weather from southern Alabama to New England.

Snow advisories are in force for nearly twenty states, including New Jersey and New York. Long Island is forecast to receive up to a foot of snow, while Boston is expecting up to 15 inches, with strong winds causing the snow to drift.

Colorado snowpack nears record - Steamboat Springs - "We surpassed 300 inches of snowfall for the season this morning," bragged Andy Wirth, Steamboat Ski and Resort Corp.'s vice president of marketing, addressing an audience at the Steamboat Grand Resort Hotel ballroom.

"That's 25 feet of snow. I meant to use this measuring tape to mark 25 feet on the wall of the ballroom. But then I realized the ceiling in here isn't 25 feet high," Wirth cracked.

The 308 inches of total snowfall brought the resort to within two feet of the average yearly snowfall for the past 25 years.

With 66 days remaining in the ski season, all past records should be easily broken.

  Icecycles Audio Book 
Now Available on CD
 

.Sorry ... IceCycles is no longer available

.
In this exciting new audio book hosted by 
Laura Lee, I talk about the ice-age cycle
(for three uninterrupted hours!) telling the

whole story, in depth, as to why I think the 
next ice age could begin in our lifetimes.

I also discuss the six chapters not included 
in my book Not by Fire but by Ice. Now that 
the climate is progressing as I forecast, I think
it's time to bring these chapters to light. Here I
look at the implications of geomagnetic
 reversals and how they impact evolution.
