“If the week’s previous weather was a snowstorm, this one was a blizzard,” says this article from Estonia Public Broadcasting.

A fresh snowstorm arriving on Thursday evening from the southeast buried much of the country – with some places gaining up to 27 centimeters of fresh snow, according to the Meteorology and Hydrology Institute.

Temperatures varied from -4 to -7 C on the mainland, with temperatures near freezing on Saaremaa.

Traffic is complicated with drifts, limited visibility and strong winds, according to the Road Information Center. Rescuers came to the aid of several trucks and other vehicles that got stuck in the snow. The Rescue Service also warned of fallen trees on roads, which caused several accidents.

Estonia is not far from Finland,” says Argiris. “Again complete silence about this in the Dutch MSM.”

    While I am interested in weather elsewhere, I am not convinced there is any story in the lack of coverage in western Europe. Most people are interested in their local weather unless there is something really extraordinary which snow in Finland, Estonia or Moscow even if a bit early, isn’t. Now, I’m looking outside at snow covered trees and white roofs in Frankfurt Germany.

      I understand what you are saying, but when people only see their “local” weather, they are being told that it is exactly that, just weather, when it deals with “cold climate” events. On the other hand, is there also a blackout in “hot climate” events in western Europe? That is, do you regularly read about Gore’s “dirty weather” tropical storms, droughts, and heat waves? If so, then the lack of “winter event” coverage DOES say something about the media bias.

    Mr argiris isnt right about the “complete silence”, our local networks picked up on the heavy snow in Moscow and the baltic a few days ago. Today RTL has an item about a traffic jam between st petersburg and Moscow with a length of 40 km and a duration of 24 hour in blizzard conditions. http://www.rtl.nl/components/actueel/rtlnieuws/2012/12_december/01/opmerkelijk/al_24_uur_in_40_kilometer_file.xml It is not quite estonia, but st petersburg is close enough.

    Record cold here in Sweden, Vittangi in northernmost Sweden got -33,5c.

  4. Follow the long range patterns. A snowy day, or week or season does not an ice age make. Gradually decreasing growing seasons over a few decades may mean something. If Robert’s ’30 ft of snow in one day’ happens, of course, all bets are off…

    • TomO says:

      I am not sure “over a period of decades” is going to be necessary. The growing seasons only have to change a little over a few years to cause near famine conditions, and why do you think it is going to be gradual over decades? AGW blew up over a decade of increasing warmth, not decades of it. If you can panic over a 10 year period of warming, you can worry about a 10 year period of cooling as well, and it is approaching that now in spite of the braying about record heat which hasn’t really existed. Still, we can bury our heads in the sand – or snow – and let whatever happens happen. Trouble is, it is a lot harder to get ready for changes towards the colder side than it is for a couple of degrees of warming. You can farm further north and longer in the south if it warms, you are SOOL if it cools.

    sounds to me like George Soros and the super elite are responsible for the media blackout on these blizzard stories in many areas. They don’t want anyone to know that we have an ice age approaching. It’s just as bad with the American MSM- to keep people ignorant about the cold and snow records. They are awful…
