Way back during the global warming scam heyday, remember how they told us that snowfall is a thing of the past. Via UK Independent (March, 2000):
Global warming, the heating of the atmosphere by increased amounts of industrial gases, is now accepted as a reality by the international community. Average temperatures in Britain were nearly 0.6Â°C higher in the Nineties than in 1960-90, and it is estimated that they will increase by 0.2C every decade over the coming century. Eight of the 10 hottest years on record occurred in the Nineties.
However, the warming is so far manifesting itself more in winters which are less cold than in much hotter summers. According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia,within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”.
“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said.
Fast forward fourteen years to the winter of 2014; a.k.a. the winter that never ends:
Wednesday’s snow dropped the expected 5 to 8 inches of snow across our area.
There were a few isolated spots that got a little more, but the overall average across Metro Detroit was in the 5 to 8-inch range.
Most importantly — for those of you who are closely following these record — is that we got an official total of 6.5 inches at Detroit Metro Airport. That set a new March 12 daily snowfall record — the old record of 2.4 inches was set in 1984. AND, this now gives us 90.6 inches total for the season, only 3.0 inches shy of the 134-year-old record of 93.6 inches set in 1880-81. Could we break the record next week?
Not only is it really snowy, it’s going to be downright cold tonight.
Personally, I’ve had it with winter, snow and freezing cold…
Bring on the summertime blues!
