TxGal, I read or heard that, too. I think it said some were invasive weeds but others just plain old unremarkable garden or yard plants.

Wonder if we'll ever really know where they really came from?

For all I know, it could have been a whole-class summer college assignment. Extra credit, of course!

Temperatures plunge by 60 degrees in under 24 hours, bringing snow to Colorado, Montana and Wyoming

ABC News

SNOW

Summer came to an abrupt halt in parts of the Rocky Mountains on Tuesday as temperatures reaching into the 90s plunged by around 60 degrees in less than 24 hours, with a powerful surge of cold air from Canada unleashing snow and damaging winds in several states.

The roller coaster weather ripped up trees by their roots, piled up snow that shut down parts of the scenic road through Glacier National Park and knocked out power to tens of thousands
. But the temperature drop gave some relief to crews fighting wildfires in Colorado and Montana that had ballooned in hot, windy weather and forced people to flee their homes.

Heat and strong winds also hit California and parts of the Pacific Northwest over the holiday weekend, triggering destructive wildfires.

Snow fell in Colorado, Montana and Wyoming, where portions of Interstate 80 closed and forecasters predicted up to a foot in the mountains and temperatures in the teens overnight.

In Utah, where temperatures dropped by 40 degrees, wind gusts of nearly 100 mph roared through the Salt Lake City area, downing trees and leaving tens of thousands without electricity. Several northern Utah school districts canceled classes, and officials warned people to stay inside if possible to avoid flying debris, downed power lines and other dangers. Several semitrailer trucks blew over on northern Utah highways.

The Utah Capitol, which was already closed to visitors because of the coronavirus pandemic, shut to employees as well Tuesday as winds ripped up large trees by their roots, Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox tweeted.

Six inches or more of snow could fall in the northern and central Rockies, with 1 to 2 feet dropping in the highest peaks, the National Weather Service said. It has issued scattered winter storm warnings and weather advisories from southern Montana to southern Colorado. Freeze and frost warnings also were posted for parts of Montana, Idaho, Colorado, Nebraska, North Dakota and Minnesota.

The cold and snow will help the fight against the Cameron Peak Fire in northern Colorado, which nearly quadrupled in size over the weekend, sending smoke and ash into Denver. The weather was gradually expected to warm up, with temperatures back up in the 80s by the weekend in the Denver area.

In Montana, where the weather began to shift Sunday night, the small city of Red Lodge, a gateway to Yellowstone National Park, had received 10.5 inches of snow. Farther north in Glacier National Park, snow closed the higher elevations of the Going-to-the-Sun Road.

A windstorm in western Montana on Monday knocked down trees and power lines and damaged docks and boats on Flathead Lake, the largest natural freshwater lake west of the Mississippi River in the contiguous U.S. Ken and Karen Brown, who live in Safety Bay on the southwest side of the lake, told NBC Montana that the community usually lives up to its name but that wind-driven waves took most of the planks off their dock.

"This is probably one of the stronger storms we've had in the 23 years I've been here," Ken Brown told the TV station.

Warm weather in Montana over the weekend also fueled the rapid growth of a wildfire near the university town of Bozeman, forcing people to evacuate their homes and trapping three firefighters who had to deploy their fire shelters, a last-ditch effort to protect themselves, as the blaze burned over them, the Department of Natural Resources and Conservation said.

After the fire passed, they were able to walk out of the area and were taken to the hospital for evaluation, The Great Falls Tribune reported.

Labor Day has come and gone, and summer is over. At least, that's how it felt in Montana, when a powerful snow storm left its impact on higher elevations.

The storm forced officials to close Beartooth Pass on Monday, due to extreme conditions. Several inches of snow fell in the area, making some roads impassable.

Heavy snow also accumulated in other areas, including in the city of Red Lodge.

All the articles and pictures about this storm are almost unbelievable. Like they're just something made up somehow.

Hard to believe it's actually happening. Oh, how glad I am that I don't live up there any more!

And the West Coast wind, heat, and fire reports are downright terrifying!

Cold and lots of snow for Colorado
September 8, 2020 by Robert

Possible record-breaking drop in temperatures along with 8 to 12 inches of snow for both Boulder and Colorado Springs, 12 to 18 inches for Estes Park. Broken tree limbs. Potential power outages.
____________

“Denver was 101F Saturday, 93F on Labor Day and will soon be snowing with temperatures that might drop to the 20s tonight!” says meteorolgist Joe D’Aleo.

“The biggest day-to-day change (if it reaches 30F today) would be the third highest behind changes in the 1800s. If we reached the 26F in the Euro model, we could exceed the top. Most all big change days are winter changes when arctic air and chinook winds battle.”

DON’T LET ANYONE TELL YOU NORTH AMERICA’S HISTORIC SHIFT TO SEPTEMBER SNOW IS DUE TO GLOBAL WARMING
SEPTEMBER 9, 2020 CAP ALLON

Parts of the U.S. have gone from balmy summer heat to historic cold and snow in less than 24 hours. Below is a rebuttal to the mainstream position that CO2-induced ‘Arctic Amplification’ is to blame.

Alarmists claim that the Arctic is warming faster than everywhere else, and that this phenomenon is weakening the jet stream. They say the difference in temperature between the Arctic and the mid-latitudes fuels the jet stream, and that a disproportionately warming Arctic is reducing that temperature difference, weakening the winds to favor a wavier flow:


However, at least TWO insurmountable issues arise with this theory:

ISSUE 1) WHY IS THE ARCTIC WARMING FASTER THAN EVERYWHERE ELSE?

Researchers can’t even agree on this one themselves.

However, there is a weak consensus: the Arctic’s reflectivity –albedo– is reducing due to global warming: “If the sea ice melts, that will remove that white surface off of the ocean, and what will be exposed is this darker ocean surface that will absorb more of the sun’s heat,” claims global change ecologist Isla Myers-Smith.

A simple enough theory for the layman to understand, and perhaps that’s why it was chosen. Unfortunately for the alarmists, however, it just doesn’t work. A study led by NASA’s Patrick Taylor explains why: “It was previously thought that amplified polar warming was caused by melting ice, lowering surface albedo,” says Taylor. “Surface albedo at the poles, however, is lowest in the summer, which is when we see the weakest temperature response.”

Taylor’s results suggest that summertime changes in cloud cover reflects a lot of the sun’s energy, offsetting the low surface albedo, and that it must be something else that determines the amount of warming: “The total warming at the poles is due to changes in clouds, water vapor, surface albedo and atmospheric temperature,” he says. “But there is greater warming in the winter than in the summer and that is caused by energy transport.” Taylor believes this seasonality of the polar warming is a result of energy in the atmosphere that is being transported to the poles through large weather systems, but he concludes that much more study is needed in order to fully understand the climate sensitivity.

Basically, AGW-funded scientists don’t have an answer as to why the Arctic is warming faster than everywhere else, but the politics demands a consensus — the science must provide policy makers with all the answers, and all the answers must read ‘human CO2 emissions’.

And while it is generally accepted that the Arctic is indeed warming –slightly– this is more than likely in line with the historically low solar activity we’re currently receiving rather than the agenda-driving multi-tool that is AGW.


According to a myriad of separate studies, everywhere would appear to warming twice as fast as everywhere else. These studies clearly aren’t based in science, and are instead are designed to promote fear.

LOW SOLAR ACTIVITY, COOLING, AND THE JET STREAM

Using NASA’s Maunder Minimum Temperature Reconstruction Map (shown below), it is revealed that while Earth’s overall temperature trends colder during a times of low solar activity, not ALL regions experience the chill — some areas of the planet actually warm during spells of otherwise “global” cooling: the Arctic, Alaska, and S. Greenland/N. Atlantic to name a few.


Temp change between 1780 (a year of normal solar activity) and 1680 (a year within the depths of the Maunder Minimum) — NASA.

Research led by Mike Lockwood, a solar-terrestrial physicist at the University of Reading, UK, found that periods of low solar activity are associated with changes in the jet stream, and that, specifically, a quieter sun means colder winters for Europe.

According to Lockwood, a cooling of the stratosphere –as occurs during periods of low solar activity– allows the jet streams to shift towards the Equator. This has a profound effect on European weather by causing the northern jet stream to effectively block warmer maritime air from reaching the continent from the Atlantic Ocean, and this in turn opens the door to cold, northeasterly winds to drive anomalously-far south from Russia and the Arctic.

Lockwood’s research, which compared 350 years of central England temperature data with astronomical observations of sunspots, puts wavy jet streams firmly at the feet of low solar activity –and not global warming– with weather records from as far back as 1650–1700 confirming the pattern. This era, known as the Maunder minimum, was a time when the Sun was virtually sunspot-free and frost fairs were held on the River Thames: “Early instrumental records show that those cold winters were accompanied by cold winds from the east,” explained Lockwood — a theory supported by Mikhaël Schwander, et al, 2017: “The zonal flow characteristic of westerly types is reduced under low solar activity as the continental flow for easterly and northerly types is enhanced. This is also confirmed by the higher blocking frequency over Scandinavia under low solar activity.” And Schwander goes further: “The 247-year-long analysis of the 11-year solar cycle impact on late winter European weather patterns suggests a reduction in the occurrence of westerly flow types linked to a reduced mean zonal flow under low solar activity. Based on this observational evidence, we estimate the probability to have cold conditions in winter over Europe to be higher under low solar activity than under high activity.”



ISSUE 2) WHY ISN’T A SIMILAR PHENOMENON OCCURRING IN ANTARCTICA?

Modern climate science states that “because the Earth’s polar regions are warming more quickly than the rest of the world, the temperature contrast that drives jet streams has decreased” which makes for a weak and wavy jet stream flow. However, satellite data reveals that sea ice extent around the southern pole has actually GROWN over the past 40+years, and also shows that temperatures across the continent have had no real trend.

According to the AGW ‘Polar Amplification’ theory, Antarctica should be mirroring the trends seen in the Arctic: warming global temperatures should be melting sea ice exposing the darker sea beneath, absorbing the heat and increasing temperatures — but this simply isn’t happening. Furthermore, polar outbreaks in the southern hemisphere –a wavy jet stream– are also on the increase, just as they are in its northern counterpart.

There are many, many more issues that cast doubt on the AGW theory, including ocean circulation cycles and an influx of cloud-nucleating cosmic rays. But I’ll finish with images and facts re North America’s ongoing historic September cold and snow, which –as historical documentation and science has shown us– is due to the impact low solar activity has on the jet stream and not the build-up of a trace gas in the atmosphere (for more click the link below).


Rapid City, SD saw its the earliest measurable snowfall on record on Tuesday.

The area also set a new low temperature record when the mercury in downtown Rapid City dropped to 31 degrees — this beat-out the previous record of 34 degrees set back in 1929.

The past few days busted an all-time U.S. record, too:

Furthermore, and as reported by bismarcktribune.com, the temperature near the small North Dakota town of Alamo dropped to 18 degrees at 7:08 a.m. Tuesday — that is the lowest temperature ever to hit in the state on Sept 8.

The snowstorm also broke a record in Casper, Wyoming: the Oil City saw its earliest measurable snowfall on record with 2.3 inches accumulating by midnight Monday. According to the NSW, Casper’s previous earliest measurable snowfall occurred on Sept 8, 1962.

Cheyenne tied their record for earliest measurable snowfall on Tuesday as the storm did not produce measurable snow before midnight Monday. However, the city did surpass the 0.8 inches recorded back on Sept 8, 1929, and received more than an inch which beat Cheyenne’s all-time record set while William McKinley was President back on Sept 10, 1898.

I've listened to this one twice and will probably listen at least one more time.

Have you noticed that many of these smaller youtubers we listen to aren't putting out their videos as regularly as they used to? I wonder if it's because they are busy trying to finalize a lot of their preps? It surely can't all be because of fall planting.

They are making mostly shorter videos, too. Again, like they really are terribly busy with other thnigs.

Winter-like weather in Alberta – In early September

7 Sep 2020 – Temperatures plunged across Alberta, allowing snow to fall across parts of the province.

Some high elevation areas saw several centimetres of snow and certain ski hills, such as those at Sunshine Village, looked like they were in the middle of winter.

The wild temperature swing left parts of Alberta struggling to reach double digit temperatures on Labour Day.

Both record cold and record snowfall in South Dakota
September 9, 2020 by Robert

Also the earliest measurable September snowfall ever. To add to the misery, this all came after 100-degree temperatures on Saturday in Rapid City.
__________

This was the earliest measurable snow in downtown Rapid City in September since 2014, according to meteorologist Matt Gonterak. The city’s previous record of 1.6″ was set on Sept. 11, 2014 .

Tuesday’s weather set a record for a daily low in downtown Rapid City at 31 degrees. The previous record was in 1929 when downtown’s low was 34 degrees.

In fact, multiple records were set in Downtown Rapid City and at the Rapid City Regional Airport on Monday September 7th, 2020:

Downtown Rapid City

Record Daily Low: 31°F (The previous record of 34°F was set in 1929)
Record Daily Precipitation: 0.97″ (Previous record of 0.55″ set in 1951)
Record Daily Snowfall: 1.0″ (No previous snow record for September 7th, 2020)
Earliest freezing temperature: September 7th, 2020 (Previous earliest freezing temperature : September 11th, 1921 and on September 11th, 2014)
September 7th, 2020 set a record for the earliest measurable snow in Downtown Rapid City (Previous record September 11th, 2014 of 1.6″)

Rapid City Regional Airport

Record Daily Low: 32°F (Previous record 34°F in 1986)
Record Daily Precipitation: 0.96″ (Previous 0.86″ in 1946)
Earliest freezing temperature: September 7th, 2020 (Previous: September 9th, 1962/September 9th, 2001)
Other records that could be broken by the impending snowfall:
  • Snowiest September. (In 1927, Rapid City saw four and eight tenth inches.)
The northern part of the Black Hills saw the highest amounts. The National Weather Service reports Lead saw ten inches, while Deadwood saw six inches. Keystone, near Mount Rushmore in the central Black Hills saw four inches. Rapid City received a little over an inch.

JUST COUNT THE COLD-RECORDS THAT FELL OVER THE PAST 24HRS
SEPTEMBER 10, 2020 CAP ALLON

NOAA won’t want to hear it –I doubt they’ll even properly log it– but HUNDREDS of low temperature records have tumbled across the United States over the past 24 hours as brutal Arctic air sank anomalously-far south on the back of weak and wavy meridional jet stream flow.

According to the ‘unofficial’ data compiled by coolwx.com, a plague of new all-time cold records spread across the U.S. over the past 24 hours — an embarrassment of riches for the cold hunters, almost as embarrassing as that paltry handful of heat records tumbling in the far northwest:



Only cities having an NCDC GSOD recorded history of at least 35 years are shown here. The records are defined here using GMT, with the day resetting at 00GMT (7PM EST;8PM EDT).

In addition to the cold, many regions also received their most-ever snowfall this early in the season: seventeen inches of global warming goodness fell in Wyoming, New Mexico saw its earliest flakes on record, and parts of Colorado suffered their earliest snowfall in decades—these are just a few of the astonishing weather reports coming out of a record-setting September week.

Rapid City, SD, set a U.S. record for the fastest turnaround between 100 degree temperatures and measurable snow, after it hit 102 degrees on Saturday, only to then see an inch of snow on Monday. This two-day gap broke the record for shortest amount of time between those two weather observations — the previous record being Ardmore, SD, in Sept 1929 when a similar event took place over the course of approximately three days. And it stands: if proponents of a CO2-induced Apocalypse want to blame human activity for every flip-flopping weather phenomenon, then they also have to acknowledge the natural factors that caused 1929’s swing-between-extremes:


Further cold records are forecast to fall throughout the rest of the week, as a violently buckling jet stream –a phenomenon associated with the historically low solar activity we’re currently receiving– continues to divert bone-chilling Arctic air to the lower 48 (as well as parts of eastern Canada):


GFS 2m Temp Anomalies (C) Sept 10 – Sept 12 [tropicaltidbits.com].

Snow is expected to continue falling across the Mountain States through Friday, and as a side note, just look at the cold forecast to grip Greenland over the next few days (above), as well as the accumulating snow predicted to build throughout September (below):



These snow totals will add to the exceptional, record-breaking growth registered across the Greenland ice sheet since early August:


And will also surely assist the record-early sea ice growth seen over the Arctic:


The COLD TIMES are returning in line with historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow. Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.

[A FEW OF THE] SCIENTISTS WHO WARN OF A COMING GRAND SOLAR MINIMUM AND LITTLE ICE AGE
SEPTEMBER 10, 2020 CAP ALLON

There are many reputable scientists out there combating the orchestrated consensus that Earth is heating into oblivion due to trace CO2 — they just don’t receive any airtime, and so the masses are never privy to their alternative lines of research and theories. Furthermore, critical thinking when applied to any subject is generally regarded as heresy, and this concept is drummed into us at school. Can you imagine questioning any of the ‘facts’ contained within a teachers textbook? Doing so, assuming you’re being genuine, will no doubt just piss the teacher off despite the statistic that at least 50% of everything you currently know is wrong: not that long ago, dinosaurs were cold-blooded; increased K-12 spending and lower pupil/teacher ratios boosted public school student outcomes; most of the DNA in the human genome was junk; saccharin caused cancer and a high fiber diet prevented it; and stars couldn’t be bigger than 150 solar masses. However, the purpose of school of course isn’t to open your mind, quite the opposite, in fact — questioning orthodoxies sees you shutdown, and in the case of ‘global warming’, instantly has you labelled a denier for life!

With this is mind, the Sun’s historically low activity in cycle 24 took the majority of researchers and solar physicists by complete surprise, particularly with regards to its very long minimum period between cycles 23 and 24 (more than two years in 2008–2010) in which there was a lack of any activity at all.

As discussed by Simon J. Shepherd et al. in their 2014 paper PREDICTION OF SOLAR ACTIVITY FROM SOLAR BACKGROUND MAGNETIC FIELD VARIATIONS IN CYCLES 21-23: “this minimum solar activity was evident not only in the lack of sunspots but also in solar magnetic field variations (de Toma et al. 2010a, 2010b), modulation of cosmic rays (McDonald et al. 2010), and in interplanetary coronal mass ejections (Barnard et al. 2011).”

This prolonged minimum in cycle 24 was all the more surprising because the previous five cycles had been extremely active and so sunspot-productive that they were designated as a Grand Solar MAXIMUM (Solanki et al. 2004; Usoskin 2008; Usoskin et al. 2008; Solanki & Krivova 2011).

“In cycle 24, the Grand Maximum was followed by much lower solar activity, prompting some authors to suggest that the Sun is on its way toward a Maunder Minimum of activity (Lockwood et al. 2011),” writes Shepherd. “This reduced appearance of sunspots in the current cycle 24 was not anticipated by many researchers before the cycle began but has since given birth to a slew of papers suggesting we are indeed now headed into the next Grand Solar MINIMUM.”

Simon J. Shepherd et al. concluded in 2014, with a sufficient degree of confidence, that the solar activity in cycles 24–26 will be systematically decreasing: “we predict a noticeable decrease of the average sunspot numbers in cycle 25 to ≈80% of that in cycle 24 and a decrease in cycle 26 to ≈40%”:


Modulus summary principal component (solid curve) for cycles 21–23 and predicted for cycles 24–26.

In 2010, Professor Nils-Axel Mörner’s paper Solar Minima, Earth’s rotation and Little Ice Ages in the past and in the future: The North Atlantic–European case suggests that past Solar Minima were all linked to a general speeding up of the Earth’s rate of rotation — an interesting take. Mörner writes: “This affected the surface currents and southward penetration of Arctic water in the North Atlantic causing “Little Ice Ages” over northwestern Europe. At around 2040–2050 we will be in a new major Solar Minimum. It is to be expected that we will then have a new “Little Ice Age” over the Arctic and NW Europe. The mechanism proposed for the linkage of Solar activity with Earth’s rotation is the interaction of Solar Wind with the Earth’s magnetosphere; the decrease in Solar Wind at sunspot minima weakens the interaction with the magnetosphere that allows the Earth to speed up, and the increase in Solar Wind at sunspot maxima strengthens the interaction with the magnetosphere that slows down the spinning of the Earth.”

Eminent Russian space scientist, Habibullo Abdussamatov (Dr. Sc. – Head of Space research laboratory of the Pulkovo Observatory) wrote Optimal prediction of the peak of the next 11-year activity cycle and of the peaks of several succeeding cycles on the basis of long-term variations in the solar radius or solar constant in 2007, and his forecasts –to date– have proved accurate.

“We propose a new technique for the optimal prediction of the peak of the next 11-year activity cycle prior to the cycle beginning and of the peaks of several succeeding cycles on the basis of long-term variations in the solar radius or solar constant,” reads the opening lines of the paper’s Abstract.

Using this new technique, Abdussamatov predicted (back in 2007) that “the peak of the succeeding cycle 24 is expected to have the height W max = 70 ± 10 (in units of relative sunspot number)”–which turned out to be correct–“and the subsequent cycles 25 and 26 … will have still lower peaks with the heights W max = 50 ± 15 and W max = 35 ± 20″–this forecast would take us below Dalton Minimum levels.

“The Sun defines the climate, not carbon dioxide,” says Abdussamatov.

“The so-called ‘greenhouse effect’ will not avert the onset of the next deep temperature drop, the 19th in the last 7500 years, which without fail follows after natural warming,” warns Abdussamatov, who adds: “We should fear a deep temperature drop — not catastrophic global warming. Humanity must survive the serious economic, social, demographic and political consequences of a global temperature drop, which will directly affect the national interests of almost all countries and more than 80% of the population of the Earth.”


Desperate scenes during the Maunder Minimum (1645-1715).

And regardless of what the MSM is printing, or what the official government data sets reveal, global average temperatures ARE FALLING: down 0.45C since 2016, according the UAH–which is perhaps the most reliable record we have, but even this undergoes a host of “adjustments”.


Also, if we take out the naturally occurring El Ninos then it is revealed that there has been no warming since 2000, arguably even earlier. And 2020 is likely the “pause” before the storm, with temps forecast to plummet from here on out, perhaps to below baseline by early 2021.

As Dr. Patrick Moore (co-founder of Greenpeace) said in his speech at the Water, Oceans and Wildlife Subcommittee hearing in 2019: “I’ve been watching this prediction of the Grand Solar Minimum for some time now, and now it’s coming to pass and so I’m willing to say that yes, it appears as though the Grand Solar Minimum is occurring and will continue to occur for some time, and will result in a cooling of the climate, which we see just in the last couple of years beginning to set in.”

Moore continued: “Indeed in the Arctic, the ice is more prevalent now than it has been in many years, at least fourteen. And so the trend is going in the opposite direction to the prediction of ever-increasing warmth and loss of ice. It’s long been stated that the sun is the main controller of the earth’s climate,” he concluded.

The COLD TIMES are returning in line with historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow. Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.

Casper Wyoming snow

Seventeen inches of snow, 70-degree temperature drops and the earliest snowfall on record were just part of a record September winter blast.

Seventeen inches of snow in Wyoming, the earliest snowfall on record for New Mexico and the earliest flakes in decades for parts of Colorado — these are just a few of the astonishing weather reports coming out of a record-setting September week.

On Wednesday morning, snow was falling over parts of Colorado and 5 million people remained under winter weather alerts across portions of the Northern and Central Rockies. Those in the Denver area woke up to 1 to 4 inches of snow coating trees and grassy surfaces.

A few more inches of snow was possible, mostly at the highest elevations, before the snow was expected to end by afternoon.

In addition to parts of Colorado and New Mexico experiencing their earliest snow on record, the weather had whiplashed in just days from record-setting temperatures near or exceeding 100 degrees, to the sudden winter blast.

Rapid City, South Dakota, set a U.S. record for the fastest turnaround between 100 degree temperatures and measurable snow, after it hit 102 degrees F on Saturday, only to then see an inch of snow on Monday. This two-day gap broke the record for shortest amount of time between those two weather observations, the previous record being Ardmore, South Dakota, in September 1929 when a similar event took place over the course of approximately three days.

Rapid City also topped the list for greatest temperature drop. After setting an all-time September high on Saturday, the temperature dropped more than 70 degrees in two days, also setting a record for earliest first freeze on Monday.

With 2 to 5 inches of snow blanketing Boulder, Colorado, the area saw more snow on Tuesday than Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia saw all of last year, combined.

Here are the top snowfall totals for each state:

Wyoming: Casper 17 inches

Montana: Red Lodge 15.5 inches

South Dakota: Terry Peak 15 inches

Colorado: Alamosa 14 inches

New Mexico: Canon Plaza 5 inches

In addition to the snow, temperatures 30 to 40 degrees below average will lead to numerous record lows and record cold highs Wednesday and Thursday morning. Highs on Wednesday across the Rockies and Plains will only get into the 40s and 50s, and lows Thursday morning will dip back down into the 20s and 30s.

This chill in the air won't last long, however, with temperatures expected to rebound to the 70s by Friday and 80s by Saturday in Denver.

Denver – Earliest freeze on record
September 10, 2020 by Robert

Ties one other date for the earliest freeze on record going back nearly 150 years.

Denver’s temperature plunged from 93 degrees on Monday to 32 degrees on Tuesday. It’s a tie with September 8, 1962, for the earliest freeze on record going back nearly 150 years.

The National Weather Service has recorded six other days since 1872 where the temperature dropped by 60 degrees or more in Denver, but they were all during the winter.

CFSV2 FORECASTS LA NIÑA (COOLING) INTO 2021
SEPTEMBER 11, 2020 CAP ALLON

The latest CFSv2 forecast for region 3.4 of the central equatorial Pacific Ocean reveals that a flip from the recent El Niño setup (warming) to a La Niña one (cooling) has occurred.

The below chart shows Sea Surface Temperatures (SSTs) for region 3.4. of the equatorial Pacific: that black-dash line has dipped deep into La Niña territory, and the model sees this persisting through the remainder of 2020 and into 2021:




What’s also noteworthy is that CSFv2 readings tend to favor warm events, so it’s worth paying extra-attention when this particular model forecasts anything cold.

La Niña’s are usually associated with cooler global average temperatures, droughts in the southern U.S., and anonymously wet conditions in Australia.

The Climate Prediction Center, a branch of NOAA, recently confirmed in its monthly report that SSTs in the central and eastern tropical Pacific Ocean had indeed cooled, signifying La Niña conditions, and that there was a 75 percent likelihood that La Niña would continue through the winter.

In addition, looking at the UAH Temperature dataset (shown below), if we remove the El Niño (warming) spikes from the record then the global average temperature has remained largely unchanged since the start of the satellite era; any so-called ‘global warming’ has been statistically irrelevant.




And with a La Niña having now taken hold, we can expect the UAH to show an acceleration of the cool-down that began directly after 2015/16’s record super El Niño — readings below the 1981-2010 baseline in early 2021 are a realistic possibility.

The NH’s winter of 2020/21 is shaping up to be a doozy.

Stay tuned for updates.

The COLD TIMES are returning in line with historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow. Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.

Think 2020's disasters are wild? Worse is yet to come say experts

New York Post
Thu, 10 Sep 2020 12:23 UTC

Creek Fire

A firefighter battles the Creek Fire as it threatens homes in the Cascadel Woods neighborhood of Madera County, California.

A record amount of California is burning, spurred by a nearly 20-year mega-drought. To the north, parts of Oregon that don't usually catch fire are in flames.

Meanwhile, the Atlantic's 16th and 17th named tropical storms are swirling, a record number for this time of year. Powerful Typhoon Haishen lashed Japan and the Korean Peninsula this week. Last month it hit 130 degrees in Death Valley, the hottest Earth has been in nearly a century.

Phoenix keeps setting triple-digit heat records, while Colorado went through a weather whiplash of 90-degree heat to snow this week. Siberia, famous for its icy climate, hit 100 degrees earlier this year, accompanied by wildfires. Before that Australia and the Amazon were in flames.

Amid all that, Iowa's derecho — bizarre straight-line winds that got as powerful as a major hurricane, causing billions of dollars in damages — barely went noticed.

Freak natural disasters — most with what scientists say likely have a climate change connection — seem to be everywhere in the crazy year 2020. But experts say we'll probably look back and say those were the good old days, when disasters weren't so wild.

"It's going to get A LOT worse," Georgia Tech climate scientist Kim Cobb said Wednesday. "I say that with emphasis because it does challenge the imagination. And that's the scary thing to know as a climate scientist in 2020."

Colorado University environmental sciences chief Waleed Abdalati, NASA's former chief scientist, said the trajectory of worsening disasters and climate change from the burning of coal, oil and gas is clear and basic physics.

Comment: NASA's former chief scientist, with his 'basic physics', has, oddly, left out of his calculations the greatest driver of Earth's climate, the Sun. Although, thankfully, not all scientists are so oblivious: Professor Valentina Zharkova: "We entered the 'modern' Grand Solar Minimum on June 8, 2020"

"I strongly believe we're going to look back in 10 years, certainly 20 and definitely 50 and say, 'Wow, 2020 was a crazy year, but I miss it,'" Abdalati said.

That's because what's happening now is just the type of crazy climate scientists anticipated 10 or 20 years ago.

"It seems like this is what we always were talking about a decade ago," said North Carolina State climatologist Kathie Dello.

Even so, Cobb said the sheer magnitude of what's happening now was hard to fathom back then. Just as the future of climate disasters is hard to fathom now.

"A year like 2020 could have been the subject of a marvelous science fiction film in 2000," Cobb said. "Now we have to watch and digest real-time disaster after disaster after disaster, on top of a pandemic. The outlook could not be any more grim. It's just a horrifying prospect."

"The 2030s are going to be noticeably worse than the 2020s," she said.

University of Michigan environment dean Jonathan Overpeck, a climate scientist, said that in 30 years because of the climate change already baked into the atmosphere "we're pretty much guaranteed that we'll have double what we have now."

Expect stronger winds, more drought, more heavy downpours and floods, Abdalati said.

Comment: Regarding 'stronger winds', they're actually slowing down. Another miss for Abdalati.

"The kind of things we're seeing are no surprise to the (scientific) community that understands the rules and the laws of physics," Abdalati said.

Comment: The sold out scientific community that promote the lie of global warming evidently don't understand these 'rules and laws' because they have been proven wrong time and time again.

"A lot of people want to blame it on 2020, but 2020 didn't do this," Dello said. "We know the behavior that caused climate change."

Consider the world's environment like an engine: "We have injected more energy into the system because we have trapped more heat into the atmosphere," said World Meteorological Organization Secretary-General Petteri Taalas.

That means more energy for tropical storms as well as changes to rainfall patterns that bring drought to some places and heavy rainfall to others, Taalas said.

Comment: This seems to be the case, although this has also been happening for over a millenia and so it is highly unlikely to have anything to do with greenhouse gasses: A warning from ancient tree rings: The Americas are prone to catastrophic, simultaneous droughts

In California, where more than 2.3 million acres have burned, the fires are spurred by climate change drying plants and trees that then go up in flames, said University of Colorado fire scientist Jennifer Balch. California is in the midst of a nearly 20-year mega-drought, the first of its kind in the United States since Europeans arrived, Overpeck said.

Comment: As noted above, they need to go a little further back in the historical record.

Scientists also make direct connections between heat waves and climate change.

Some disasters at the moment can't be directly linked to man-made warming, such as the derecho, Overpeck said. But looking at the big picture over time shows the problem and it's one that comes down to the basic physics of trapped heat energy.

"I am not an alarmist. I don't want to scare people," Abdalati said. "It's a problem with tremendous consequences and it's too important not to get right."

And so even though the climate will likely get worse, Overpeck is also optimistic about what future generations will think when they look back at the wild and dangerous weather of 2020.

"I think we'll look back and we'll see a whole bunch of increasingly crazy years," Overpeck said. "And that this year, in 2020, I hope we look back and say it got crazy enough that it motivated us to act on climate change in the United States."

Comment: While former NASA chief scientist Abdalati is wrong about a number of things, it is obvious to anyone paying attention that there are great changes afoot on our planet. And so for a more compelling answer as to what's driving these changes and that also explains the increase in extreme and unusual events, across the board, from sinkholes; extreme temperature swings; global cooling; the meandering jet stream and stalling gulf stream; the unusual electrical activity in our skies; the rise in fireballs and comets; the increase in volcanic and seismic events - and much more - check out Pierre Lescaudron and Laura Knight-Jadczyk's book Earth Changes and the Human-Cosmic Connection, as well as the following SOTT podcasts:

TxGal, both parts of the DuByne/Kudla interview are mostly economic, but they do touch on land, farming and gardening, and weather. And I think that right now we need to hear any tidbits of that kind of information we can find.

One of those bits I found interesting in this interview was the one about which nations of the world are or could be totally food independent. To me this is something useful to know.

There is a video on Ice Age Farmer's Twitter page where he is interviewed by someone named Hrvoje. He's discussing all the things that he's been reporting recently and I'm just starting to listening to it and I'm sure there will be some new things for us in there as well.

"Food wars...the engineered destruction of our food supply." rt = 30:05

Not sure he will directly bring in the GSM, but for me, knowing anything about food supply and cost is connected to what is happening with the GSM.

So far I've only listened to ten minutes of it, but it really is a good interview. The guy doesn't interrupt.

Synopsis provided:

Christian "The Ice Age Farmer" Westbrook discusses the engineered and deliberate destruction of our food supply. Pretexts cited to shut down farms and cull livestock include the spread of "coronavirus" between humans on farms, transmission from animals to humans, as well as outright sabotage of food storehouses. He describes the move to tax and eliminate meat and replace it with fake, synthetic, lab-grown foodstuffs. Power elites seeks to track and trace all food through artificial intelligence and the blockchain. He suggests everyone begin to grow their own food.

TxGal, I just finished listening to this one. It was very good and I hope it isn't too much unrelated to the GSM. Christian did an excellent job of putting together what has been going on from day one of this whole food control effort.

I found most disturbing what he said about how last fall a pandemic was "gamed" and suddenly we get a pandemic. And now they are gaming total food control and it's looking like that's already moving right along as well.

When I think of it all in one big picture, I can feel the hair rising up on the back of my neck. For real, and it's an eerie feeling.

Wouldn't it be nice if we'd all wake up and find out it's just a bad dream? I'd love to be able to just go back to dealing with a really bad Super Grand Solar Minimum. To me, that itself has started to sound mighty easy by comparison to what's actually happening right now.

Day by day
Martinhouse, with the GSM apparently bearing down on us hard and the resulting crop issues we've had/will continue to have, it seems to make sense to me that reports on other impacts on our food supply should be included here.

If nothing else, these reports make the need for doubling down on food preps even more apparent.

Things sure are getting more and more surreal out there!

Monday night I lost power because of the windstorm, Tuesday morning I found out that we were on a E2 evacuation order from the Holiday Farm fire. Because the phone and electricity come up the McKenzie valley from Eugene, we had no power or phone. The town of Blue River is totally gone, many of the houses below Blue River are gone or damaged.

I can say that this is totally the result of forest mismanagement, and NOT global warming. Prior to the eighties, there was a lot more logging going on, and all the logging crews would also be fighting fire. There would be more cats available for building lines etc. We have had battles here every year with people objecting to thinning and brush control because they think it is visually ugly, and not "natural". As you can tell, I am beyond PO'd at this time. I have many friends who have lost everything, and many businesses are gone as well. At this time, we don't know how many people have died in the fires.

And useless Brown says these fires are a result of global warming.
