  1. Kenneth Lund says:

    This is just one of the examples of heavy snowfalls expected for the Cascades and Sierras. Some might say this particular event isn’t all that unusual – BUT when you combine this event with all the other reports of heavy snowfall across the hemipshere so early in the season – it is very significant. One has to look at the big picture.
    And don’t forget the report on the all-time record ice extent in Antarctica.

  2. I wish someone could say how thick the ice is in the Arctic now. I already saw the Brit swimming along the prepared route at -1* across the North Pole in midsummer but this means nothing until the trend of high-winter temps is known. The sub Nautilus surfaced at 90*N lat when I was in kindergarten, I remember, which tells me the ice thickness has never recently been overly-thick.
