Let it Snow...
I fully realize that anecdotal evidence has nothing to do with the current debate on the existence (or not) of man made global warming … but this is just too rich. From Bloomberg news:
March 1 -- The largest snowstorm of the season is on it way to New York City and the surrounding metropolitan area, with as much as a record-setting 14 inches expected to fall tonight and into tomorrow’s rush hour, meteorologists say.
“It’s a good, old-fashioned snowstorm,” said Gary Conte , a National Weather Service meteorologist in Upton, New York. “The record for March is 10 inches (25 centimeters), set in 1896. Obviously, based on our forecast, that is in jeopardy. March is coming in like a lion.” The 1896 record was for daily snowfall.
Snow will be accompanied by high winds that will cause drifting and bring unseasonably cold weather, Conte said. Temperatures will range between 20 degrees Fahrenheit (-6 degrees Celsius) to just about the freezing mark, which is 10 degrees to 15 degrees below normal.
“This is not the type of snow that gets melted within 24 to 48 hours,” he said.This storm comes on the heels of Obama’s plan to raise money by taxing carbon.
Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia and Boston are all expected to receive significant snow falls.
There is a God. And She has a terrific sense of humor.
