    CO2 a millionth part of the greenhouse effect
    Since the changing cloudiness also affects the atmospheric water vapor density that causes up to 97% of the greenhouse effect according to available evidence, the CO2-density factor is too small a factor to affect anything in this gigantic arena where cosmic factors run the show.

    As I said before, while the CO2 has the characteristic to qualify it as a greenhouse gas, its minuscule density in the air, and the fact that its effect is masked almost completely by the vastly more-powerful water-vapor effect, enables the CO2 to contribute only roughly a millionth part of the overall greenhouse effect of the atmosphere of the Earth.

    Since the accumulated human contribution to the global atmospheric CO2 since the start of the industrial revolution, adds up to a mere 10% of it, the result has no effect on the climate that is of practical significance. In the real world, CO2 is not a climate factor. The solar cosmic-ray flux is the climate factor that overrides all other factors. However, the 10% increase in atmospheric CO2 that humanity has caused since the start of the industrial revolution, has a significant effect on increasing plant growth.

    Cosmic dynamics that affect our Sun
    When up to 97% of the greenhouse effect of the Earth's atmosphere is caused by water vapor, which is hugely affected by effects on the Sun, eyebrows should be raised against the claims of the CO2 climate forcing. Furthermore, when as little as a millionth part of the greenhouse effect is demonstrably caused by CO2, of which the manmade contribution is roughly 10%, then the atmospheric CO2 concentration, no matter how little or how large it may be, is insignificant for comparisons with the ever-changing cosmic dynamics that affect our Sun, which hugely affect the Earth and its climate with solar cosmic-ray-flux fluctuations.

    With plasma streams being electric in nature, electric resonance effects occur at all levels, with the result that the plasma density around the Sun is constantly changing. In other words, the Sun is not a constant factor for the climate on Earth. Enormously large effects of the Sun affect the climate on Earth in huge ways, by affecting cloudiness and water-vapor density in the atmosphere, which are two factors that massively affect our climate.

    The fears of an overheated world, are fears in dreams where nothing is actually real. It is a well-established fact that the global warming of the Earth that ended the icy climate of the Little Ice Age of the 1600, was not caused by human action, industrialization, or energy utilization, but was measurably caused by the Sun, by increased solar activity.

    Yes, the intensity of solar activity can be measured. It can be measured in Carbon-14 ratios, and also in Beryllium-10 ratios. The ratio of these isotopes is directly reflecting the intensity of solar cosmic-ray flux impacting the atmosphere and the Earth. In times of high solar activity, the cosmic-ray flux is low, which produces lower ratios of these rare isotopes that have no other natural cause. Their ratios are measurable. The measurements follow the known temperature trends in both cases. The measurements also prove that changes in cosmic-ray flux directly affects the climate on Earth. Even minute forms of weakening on the Sun can thereby have large affects on the cosmic-ray flux streaming from the Sun, which causes large changes in cloudiness on Earth that changes the amount of the radiated energy from the Sun that is reflected back into space, which thereby becomes lost to us.

    All this is known. The Little Ice Age resulted from extremely low solar activity, and inversely, the global warming afterwards resulted from increased solar activity. We have proof for both in the isotope ratios.

    With the measurements, we have concrete evidence that the global warming from the 1700s till about 2000, are not caused by changes in human activity and fuel burning, but was caused directly by the Sun. We also have an element proof thereby, that CO2 affects nothing, and that the rising CO2 density is not manmade, but is simply a natural reflection of the long transit times in the global recycling system, of the high CO2 volumes that were absorbed into the oceans during the cold period of the Little Ice Age.

    The depressing effect of the Ice Age environments on human living has evidently been so immense that the concept of human history is typically limited to only the minuscule time of the 12,000 years of the current interglacial period, as if nothing had existed before.

    All the creation sagas of the great religions, of the origin of man, are located in the brief period of the current interglacial, which is itself an anomaly.

    On the long timeframe of the Pleistocene Ice Age Epoch, the interglacial warm periods, especially those of the last half million years, amount to only 15% of the time, with deep glaciation occurring for the remaining 85% of the time, which renders the glacial environment the normal environment of the Earth during the Pleistocene Epoch.

    At that time, using thermal mass was probably the most effective solution available to the Irish.

    'Like somebody flipped a switch': parts of Sask. see September snowfall

    Most of the snow fell in west-central parts of province

    CBC News · Posted: Sep 17, 2018

    Some areas of Saskatchewan woke up to a winter wonderland on Monday.

    Several centimetres of snow fell in west-central areas of the province, while places north of Prince Albert saw some as well.

    The area hit most was around Spiritwood, including Belbutte and Meeting Lake.

    "[It's] a little snowy," said Val Willick with a laugh. She's the clubhouse manager at Spiritwood Golf Course.

    "It's on the ground, and on the golf carts, and on the trees," she said.

    The town saw some cold and rainy weather over the weekend as well, but she says that didn't stop golfers.

    "It was very cold, but we still had over 50 golfers both days," she said,

    "As soon as this snow goes maybe we'll get a few more rounds in for the season."

    September snow not unusual

    Although the snow seems early, it's not entirely unexpected.

    "I think mentally we're just not ready," said Terry Lang, a meteorologist with Environment Canada.

    "But it's not necessarily that unusual."

    Most of the province experienced a heatwave last month, she explained, which is why seeing snow seems so odd.

    "All of a sudden it seemed like somebody flipped a switch and summer was over and we went right into fall," she said. [Fall? It's still officially Summer. And you usually get snow in Fall? Looks more like Winter to me. This is advancing southwards to the USA. von Koehler]

    Lang says the weather system that's bringing snow is already clearing up in most areas, but another system could bring more snow later this week.

    Whistler seeing first flakes of snow in last days of summer.

    Snow in September



    A photo posted by Whistler Blackcomb shows snow at the peak of Whistler Mountain on Sunday, Sept. 16, 2018.

    Published Tuesday, September 18, 2018 1:11PM PDT

    The last day of summer is still days away, but snow has already fallen in parts of B.C. [That's British Columbia Canada]

    The first flakes of the upcoming fall-winter season fell over the peak of Whistler Mountain last week, a photo posted on Twitter Tuesday showed.

    Whistler Blackcomb shared the photo, which was taken Sunday, of the inuksuk at the peak, writing: "It's starting to look a lot like… we've skipped a season."

    The photo taken by Mitch Winton of Coast Mountain Photography showed there was enough snow to cover the path at the time.

    Sunday's was not the mountain's first snowfall this summer. Another photo from Winton posted on the resort's Instagram page showed a smattering of snow fell Sept. 11.

    A webcam installed 2,182 metres up the mountain showed much of the snow was still on the ground by Tuesday, though it was nowhere near enough snow for skiing. Snow could also be seen on the 7th Heaven camera at 2,173 metres.

    Last year, enough snow fell uphill that the slopes opened a week early, on Nov. 17.

    While the temperature hovered around the freezing mark at the peak on Tuesday, downhill, the high climbed to 15 C.

    Snow fell in Whistler around the same time as special weather statements were issued for other parts of the province last week. Many communities in south-central B.C. woke up to snow on Thursday, and there were back-to-back winter storms in the northeast Tuesday and Wednesday.

    Snow drenches crops, some Alta. farmers hope for clear skies

    Tuesday, September 18, 2018,

    September has been wet, snowy and cold but some northern Alberta farmers say there's still time for a successful harvest — if dryer weather comes.

    "There's nothing we can do," said Michael Kalisvaar, who runs Kalco Farms, a grain operation near Gibbons, Alta.

    "When it's this wet, the combine, the harvesting comes to a complete standstill. We need relatively dry weather to even get the material through the machines, so we're just left waiting here for better weather."

    Kalisvaar, speaking on CBC's Radio Active on Monday, noted the quality of grain products will go down the longer they're exposed to cold, frosty weather.

    The lowest quality of grain can only be sold as feed for livestock.

    September often brings inclement weather in Alberta and Kalisvaar said he has no choice but to hope for clear, dry skies in the coming weeks.

    "Being a farmer, you're going to be a little bit optimistic and say, 'We still have time,'" he said.

    Farmers can also invest in high-tech solutions to ease through the wet patches. Dryers can help take some of the moisture out of crops once they've been cut — but it needs to be dry enough to do that initial harvest in the first place.

    Crop lifters can also help.

    "It will take extra time and extra specialized equipment that farmers may need to go out and purchase to get this crop off," said Kevin Hoppins, the board chair for United Farmers of Alberta Co-operative.

    "(Crops) that usually stand a metre high, are now laying flat on the ground."

    Hoppins, a fourth-generation farmer, acknowledged that farmers carry insurance — but it doesn't totally make up for the losses a farmer will incur through a terrible season, he said. The insurance also doesn't compensate for the ripple effects that a poor farming season can have in rural communities.

    "When farmers struggle and the crop doesn't come off in the quality they like, it's quite obvious their income is less. And when income is less, spending is less. In rural communities, if we don't make money, we don't spend money."

    Hoppins added that insurance also doesn't compensate for the lost pride.

    "There's a huge sense of pride in farmers and ranchers in Alberta. When we plant a crop, we want to harvest it. There's nothing more enjoyable than harvesting a beautiful, perfect crop," he said.

    "It's really hard for farmers and ranchers when they don't get that ability to do what they really and truly love to do."

    I'm really getting concerned that we are going to go directly from summer to winter... much as we went from winter to summer, with almost no spring weather in between.

    The trees here (42 degrees North, elevations running between 1000 and 2500 feet) are still almost all completely green. I drove across NY state last week, and was surprised to see very little hint of color change, even in the mountains. Oh, they *are* starting...there is a faint tinge of bronze on the tips of some branches, but we're normally about 2 weeks from peak color here. It was in the 90s over the weekend, and the humidity has been unbearable (and VERY unusual) for months.

    Much cooler today, but we've only had one night where we wanted (didn't NEED it, but old injuries don't like cold) a fire in the furnace, a couple weeks ago. I think this winter is going to be a doozy... as soon as I get my harvest caught up a bit (can barely walk in our large kitchen for all the bushel baskets of tomatoes, onions, peppers, melons and winter squash), I'm going to be sewing window quilts for the great room windows.

    Warnings issued as Storm Ali nears Ireland, Northern Ireland and northern Britain

    Storm Ali is approaching Ireland, Northern Ireland and northern Britain today forcing authorities to issue wind warnings across the region. This is the first officially named storm by the UK Met Office and Met Éireann for the 2018/19 season.

    Ireland

    Ali will track close to the west and northwest coast of Ireland from the early hours of Wednesday morning until late afternoon, September 19. South to southwest winds veering westerly will increase to mean speeds between 65 and 80 km/h (40 - 50 mph) with gusts between 110 and 120 km/h (68 - 75 mph) for a time in some areas. Winds will be strongest along Atlantic coasts at first and later in the morning extend further east.



    Met Éireann has issued Status Orange - Wind warning for Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal, Dublin, Kildare, Louth, Meath, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare and Kerry; Valid from 05:00 local time, Wednesday, September 19, 2018 to 13:00 local time of the same day.

    Status Yellow - Wind warning is in effect for Ireland, valid 05:00 local time, Wednesday, September 19, 2018 to 17:00 local time of the same day. The office expects very windy weather across Ireland from early on Wednesday morning until evening. South to southwest winds will reach mean speeds of 50 to 65 km/h (31 - 40 mph) with gusts of 90 to 110 km/h (56 - 68 mph), strongest in southern, western and northern coastal areas.

    Status Orange - Gale Warning: South to southwest winds will increase to Gale force 8 this evening and early tonight on coasts from Mizen Head to Slyne Head to Malin Head, extending to all areas by morning, the office said. Winds will further increase to strong Gale force 9 tomorrow morning on coasts from Mizen Head to Slyne Head to Wicklow Head with Storm force 10 winds between Mizen Head and Erris Head.

    Status Yellow - Small Craft Warning: South to southwest winds will reach force 6 or 7 on all coasts this afternoon.

    A DEVASTATING solar storm is a matter of WHEN and not if, say scientists, and it will have the ability to wipe out communications on Earth.

    By SEAN MARTIN

    PUBLISHED: Sep 18, 2018

    The European Space Agency is launching the Solar Orbiter probe in 2020 and hope that the machine will help scientists forecast potentially catastrophic phenomena.

    Solar storms occur when the sun releases a barrage of solar radiation, either through a coronal hole or a solar flare, into deep space.

    For the most part, these storms miss our planet however, sometimes Earth does get caught up in the storm’s crosshairs.

    If such a storm is strong enough, it has the potential to wipe out Earth’s technology.

    This means satellite signals will struggle to penetrate the swollen atmosphere, leading to a lack of Internet service, GPS navigation, satellite TV such as Sky and mobile phone signal.

    Additionally, increased currents in the Earth’s magnetic field – or magnetosphere – could theoretically lead to a surge of electricity in power lines, which can blow out electrical transformers and power stations leading to a temporary loss of electricity.

    The biggest storm known to us was the Carrington Event which occurred in September 1859.



    (Image: NASA)

    During that solar storm, the sun unleashed a series of powerful solar flares that were so powerful telegraph operators’ offices experienced a surge in electricity which resulted in some buildings setting on fire.

    The storm was so powerful its southern auroras could be seen as far north as Queensland in Australia and northern auroras were noted as far south as Cuba.

    Researchers now believe the event was not a one-off and the sun could be set to release a storm just as powerful and they hope that the Solar Orbiter can help us prepare.

    Catherine Burnett, head of the Met Office’s Space Weather Monitoring Unit told the Telegraph: “Solar Orbiter is a research mission which in the long term will to understand much more about the Sun and why it behaves as it does, so in the future it should help us spot disrupting events so we can prepare for them.



    The Solar Orbiter will launch in 2020 (Image: ESA)

    “The threat of space weather to national infrastructure, UK industry and the wider public is such that it is now part of the Government National Risk Register and there is a need for forecasting to try to mitigate that risk.

    “We try to advise when space weather will have an impact on technology, so we’re looking for solar flares which can knock out high frequency telecommunications, coronal mass ejections which have the potential to take out our power grids and solar radiation which impact satellite communications systems and GPS.

    “We think that the big solar incidents, like the Carrington Event, happen between 1 in 100 or 1 in 200 years so it is a case of ‘when not if’ we have one.”

    LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) -- The 2019 Farmer’s Almanac was published Monday, and with it comes a hotly (or coldly, as the case may be) anticipated bit of meteorological prognosticating: the Almanac’s yearly winter predictions.

    "Contrary to some stories floating around on the internet, our time-tested, long-range formula is pointing towards a very long, cold and snow-filled winter," Farmer’s Almanac editor Peter Geiger said in a statement. "We stand by our forecast and formula, which accurately predicted most of the winter storms last year as well as this summer’s steamy, hot conditions."

    Utilizing its mathematical and astronomical formula that Geiger said was developed in 1818, the winter of 2018 and 2019 will feature "arctic air, blustery, bitter winds, sharp drops in temperatures, and widespread snow showers and squalls," with a particularly nasty snowstorm predicted for March 20-23.

    Geiger said it’s likely that snow will begin in December and wintry conditions will delay the onset of spring.

    Frigid weather is expected in mid-February, which could bring blustery and bitter winds and widespread snow showers, including for Virginia's zone (southeast region).

    Above-normal precipitation is also in the forecast for the Southwest region during December 2018, and for the Southeast in January and February 2019.

    Significant snowfalls are also predicted for parts of all seven zones.

    More important, however, is the fact that it’s not even Labor Day, and now we’re already thinking about winter. Not fair, Farmer’s Almanac. Not fair.

    Little Ice Age foiled Europeans' early exploration of North America

    Diana Steele

    Science News

    25 Nov 2017

    1609 America Explorer Ice Age Little



    LOOKING FOR NEW LANDS A historian argues that climate, along with other factors, impeded Europeans early attempts at colonizing North America. English explorer Henry Hudson is depicted here meeting Native Americans in 1609 in what’s now New York.

    Many people may be fuzzy on the details of North America's colonial history between Columbus' arrival in 1492 and the Pilgrims' landing on Plymouth Rock in 1620. But Europeans were actively attempting to colonize North America from the early 16th century onward, even though few colonies survived.

    As historian Sam White explains in A Cold Welcome, most early attempts were doomed by fatally incorrect assumptions about geography and climate, poor planning and bad timing.

    White weaves together evidence of past climates and written historical records in a comprehensive narrative of these failures. One contributing factor: Explorers assumed climates at the same latitude were the same worldwide. But in fact, ocean currents play a huge role in moderating land temperatures, which means Western Europe is warmer and less variable in temperature from season to season than eastern North America at the same latitude.

    On top of that, explorations occurred during a time of global cooling known as the Little Ice Age, which stretched from the 13th to early 20th centuries. The height of exploration may have occurred at the peak of cooling: Starting in the late 16th century, a series of volcanic eruptions likely chilled the Northern Hemisphere by as much as 1.8 degrees Celsius below the long-term average, White says.

    This cooling gave Europeans an especially distorted impression of their new lands. For instance, not long after Spanish explorer Sebastián Vizcaíno landed in California's Monterey Bay in December 1602, men's water jugs froze overnight - an unlikely scenario today. Weather dissuaded Spain from further attempts at colonizing California for over a century.

    Harsh weather also heightened conflict when underprepared Europeans met Native Americans, whose own resources were stretched thin by unexpectedly bad growing seasons.

    A Cold Welcome is organized largely by colonial power, which means findings on climate are repeated in each chapter. But White's synthesis of climate and history is novel, and readers will see echoes of today's ignorance about the local consequences of climate change. "Human psychology may be both too quick to grasp at false patterns and yet too slow to let go of familiar expectations," White writes.

    ______________________________

    
    25 Aug 08 - Excerpt: Global temperatures have cooled during the past 12 months. During 2008 and 2009 the first stage of global cooling will cool the world’s temperatures to those observed during the years from the 1940s through the 1970s. By the year 2023 global climate will become similar to the colder temperatures experienced during the 1800s.

    David Dilley, Meteorologist

    25 Aug 08 - In the peer reviewed book “Global Warming—Global Cooling, Natural Cause Found”, meteorologist and climate researcher David Dilley utilizes nearly a half million years of data linking long term gravitational cycles of the moon explain the recent global warming, rises in carbon dioxide levels, and for 2200 global warming cycles during the past half million years.

    The gravitational cycles are called the Primary Forcing Mechanism for Climate (PFM), and act like a magnet by pulling the atmosphere’s high pressure systems northward or southward by as much as 3 or 4 degrees of latitude from their normal seasonal positions, and thus causing long-term shifts in the location of atmospheric high pressure systems.

    Research by Mr. Dilley shows a near 100 percent correlation between the PFM gravitational cycles to the beginning and ending of global warming cycles. Global warming cycles began right on time with each PFM cycle during the past half million years, as did the current warming which began 100 years ago, and it will end right on time as the current gravitational cycle begins its cyclical decline.

    Al Gore's claim about Hurricane Florence doused by scientists
    Meteorologist Ryan Maue says Gore's assertion made 'without any evidence'

    By Valerie Richardson - The Washington Times - Sunday, September 16, 2018

    Another climate-change claim by former Vice President Al Gore is coming under fire, this one involving Hurricane Florence.

    Mr. Gore said Friday that two major storms from the Atlantic and Pacific oceans had never made landfall at the same time, referring to Hurricane Florence, the Category 1 hurricane that struck North Carolina on Friday, and Super Typhoon Mangkhut, which hit the Philippines early Saturday.

    “This is the first time in history that two major storms are making landfall from the Atlantic and the Pacific simultaneously,” Mr. Gore told the crowd at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco, which wrapped up Friday.

    He cited the storm activity on opposite sides of the globe as an example of climate change driving unusual and extreme weather, but meteorologist Ryan Maue was quick to dump cold water on Mr. Gore’s assertion.

    “Al Gore just (fraudulently) claimed without any evidence that we’ve never had hurricanes in both the Atlantic and Pacific making landfall at the same time,” tweeted Mr. Maue, an adjunct scholar at the free-market Cato Institute.

    University of Colorado Boulder meteorologist Roger A. Pielke Sr. also took issue with the claim by Mr. Gore, known for his 2006 climate-change film, An Inconvenient Truth, and the 2017 follow-up, An Inconvenient Sequel.

    After they killed the renewable PNW logging industry in the 1990s and the loggers, stopped replanting and managing healthy young forrest, their models did show the area now burning up, but also a man made warming trend.

    By the early 1990s it was clear that the renewable logging industry (that started in the 60s, 70s) where they clear cut, terrace and replant, then thin and manage was really paying off big time. In both more board foot of raw Lumber in the PNW ever and huge wildlife benefits, it also started making it's own wet weather patterns. 1997- 98 was the peak of the wettest year, also the year the environmentalist got many of their final nails into the coffin of the majority of the once great logging industry of the PNW.

    Wag.....

    They thought by stopping the proving forest managment in the PNW that it would warm things up for the rest of the nation.

    Northern Ireland sets new all time record for strongest September wind gust

    TheWatchers September 20, 2018



    Northern Ireland sets new all time record for strongest September wind gust

    Northern Ireland has set its new record for strongest September wind gust with 146 km/h (91 mph) measured on September 19, 2018.

    Storm Ali wreaked havoc across Ireland and UK on September 19 and produced a wind gust of 146 km/h (91 mph) in Killowen in County Down, Northern Ireland. This is now officially the strongest wind gust measured in Northern Ireland in September since records began in 1880s. [That was during the Glassberg solar minimum]

    Ali is the first named storm of the 2018/19 season, closely followed by the second storm of the season, named Bronagh, on September 20 and 21. Forecast models suggest a third storm will form in the same region late Saturday into Sunday, September 22 into 23.

    Ali has now pulled away from northern Scotland into the northern North Sea/Norwegian Sea and Bronagh is expected to develop across parts of Wales and South West England during this evening before spreading further eastwards across England.

    Two Yellow Met Office Weather Warnings are in force, the first is for rain covering Wales and parts of North West England, then later in the day, a Yellow wind warning is also in place for much of England and parts of Wales.

    There is the possibility of damage to buildings, such as tiles blown from roofs or through falling trees and branches, as well as a danger to life, it warned.

    Storm Ali leaves 2 dead in its wake as Storm Bronagh threatens Ireland and UK, third storm expected on Saturday

    Just one day after Storm Ali left two people dead and more than 140 000 homes without power, the second named storm of the season - Bronagh - threatens southern Ireland and central and southern Britain with strong winds and squally rain today and tomorrow, September 20 and 21, 2018.

    There is also a potential for another storm to form late Saturday into Sunday, September 22 into 23.

    Severe drought blamed for sharp decrease in economy, steep decline in exports of soy and corn, Argentina

    The economy in Argentina declined sharply in the second quarter of 2018 as the country suffers its worst drought in decades and a steep decline in exports of soy and corn. Argentina was once the world's top exporter of soy and corn.

    According to the national statistics agency, the gross domestic product of the country fell 4.2% between April and June, as compared to 2017. It was the worst performance since 2014, the agency said.

    LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) -- The 2019 Farmer’s Almanac was published Monday, and with it comes a hotly (or coldly, as the case may be) anticipated bit of meteorological prognosticating: the Almanac’s yearly winter predictions.

    "Contrary to some stories floating around on the internet, our time-tested, long-range formula is pointing towards a very long, cold and snow-filled winter," Farmer’s Almanac editor Peter Geiger said in a statement. "We stand by our forecast and formula, which accurately predicted most of the winter storms last year as well as this summer’s steamy, hot conditions."

    Utilizing its mathematical and astronomical formula that Geiger said was developed in 1818, the winter of 2018 and 2019 will feature "arctic air, blustery, bitter winds, sharp drops in temperatures, and widespread snow showers and squalls," with a particularly nasty snowstorm predicted for March 20-23.

    Geiger said it’s likely that snow will begin in December and wintry conditions will delay the onset of spring.

    Frigid weather is expected in mid-February, which could bring blustery and bitter winds and widespread snow showers, including for Virginia's zone (southeast region).

    Above-normal precipitation is also in the forecast for the Southwest region during December 2018, and for the Southeast in January and February 2019.

    Significant snowfalls are also predicted for parts of all seven zones.

    More important, however, is the fact that it’s not even Labor Day, and now we’re already thinking about winter. Not fair, Farmer’s Almanac. Not fair.
    This might as well have ben written in ten foot high glowing neon:
    "Geiger said it’s likely that snow will begin in December and wintry conditions will delay the onset of spring."

    Get your greenhouses going now, folks. Either that, or start looking at how you are going to plug the holes in preps that a late Spring may give. Between weather and threat of war, reading things like this makes my antennae stand straight up and salute.

    High winds- yet another good reason to have a house with three foot thick stone walls. This makes me think high winds may have been part of the last GSM. Perhaps there are written records of that still extant? If so, all that curtain wall constructon and McMansions won't fare well at all.

    Winters in Colonial America

    von Koehler
    For a more realistic view of what we may be facing, i highly recommend 2 of Laura Ingallls Wilders books.... Farmer Boy, which is the story of her husband Almanzo's boyhood years in Malone NY, which is in the far northern corner up by the St.
    Lawrence river. Almanzo's father had more stock than he could fit into his barns, so he outwintered yearling cattle in an enclosed barnyard. Despite the protection from the wind this afforded, he had to go out almost every winter night withna stock whip, around midnight, and chase them around for 20 minutes or so to get their blood pumping, lest they freeze to death in their sleep. Thermometers went down to minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit, and sometimes the mercury froze in the bulb when temperatures dropped even lower!

    The other book is The Long Winter, and I find it fascinating that the Indians warned that every 20 years, there would be a very hard winter, but every third cycle (IIRC) the winter would be exceptionally hard. It sounds like they were observing the effects of the sunspot cycle!

    Just finished planting 36 broccoli plants in my greenhouse. If they do well, I will get enough dehydrated greens to last me at least two years. Tomorrow I start replacing the top dirt in the containers which will hold the 36 kale plants. All should do well as the heat seems to be over and we have clouds and rain predicted for the next four to five days, followed by much cooler weather.

    I think summer is over. I dread winter as I get cold so easily, but I'm constantly learning more ways to deal with it.

    There will be four containers extra when I'm finished. I wonder if turnips would grow in them? They won't get much sun until the leaves fall. I know that cabbage would grow there, but I don't need cabbage. Hmmm. Maybe four potatoes?
