Hey Al Gore … Columbia, SC Experienced Earliest Snow in 125 years of Weather Records Yesterday on Halloween Night
MORE GLOBAL WARMING BABY …
Last night on All Hallows’ Eve, Columbia, South Carolina experienced their earliest snow in 125 years of weather records. According to Accuweather, wet snow and slush brought down trees and power lines around Greenville, South Carolina as of early Saturday morning. Snow was reported as far south as Columbia, South Carolina, making it the earliest snowfall on record. What say you Al Gore? What are the odds that Gore and the rest of the global warming settled science crowd will blame this on climate change as well?
Columbia, SC has just experienced their earliest snow in 125 years of weather records, beating the Nov. 9, 1913 earliest snow record by 8 days. Current South Carolina weather shows it’s still snowing in Greenville, SC.
The Christian Science Monitor is reporting Greenville was especially hard hit with downed trees and power outages. The Smokey Mtns received up to 16 inches overnight. The current U.S. snow cover map shows 18 states with some amount of snow this morning.
Saturday morning, a record early-in-season snow coated parts of South Carolina to usher in the month of November.
Snow was observed as far south and east as Columbia, the earliest flakes on record in the city, occurring less than three days after a string of four straight days in the mid-upper 80s. Sleet was reported just northwest of Charleston, South Carolina.
A couple inches of snow coated grassy areas and some roads near Greenville and Pelion, South Carolina. Power lines were downed in Greenville, Greenwood, and Lexington Counties due to the combination of strong winds and wet snow accumulations.
Up to six inches of snow was reported around Asheville, North Carolina while 2.5 inches was measured in Boone, North Carolina. Seven inches was measured near Marshall, North Carolina (2280′ elevation). Up to 3 inches blanketed Bluefield, West Virginia.
Mt. LeConte, Tennessee (6400′ elevation) measured 22 inches of snow, with waist-deep drifts. Numerous roads were shut down in Great Smoky Mountains National Park, including U.S. 441. Trees were “cracking and popping” due to the weight of almost 13 inches of snow near Hartford, Tennessee (3400′ elevation).
Global warming, eh?
USA Today is reporting that 49 out of 50 US states have snow on the ground. Of course for Barack Obama that would be 49 out of 57 states. Of course some states have more snow cover than other, like areas of Pennsylvania, Delaware and New Jersey that are getting hammered by the latest snowmegeddon. Other areas in the South like Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, North Carolina and South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas were also pounded by snow and ice and from the latest storm.
Chart from NOAA
Snow is on the ground in 49 out of the 50 states — only the Sunshine State of Florida is completely snow-free, according to a map produced Thursday morning by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
(This doesn’t mean that those 49 states are snow-covered, of course, only that some part of each state has snow.)
Although this map doesn’t show it, there is snow in Hawaii, where webcams are showing snow on the high peaks of the mountain volcanoes of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea.
The map also doesn’t include Alaska, but it’s a given that most of that state is snow-covered this time of year. A quick check with the National Weather Service forecast office in Fairbanks found 19 inches of snow on the ground there.
But of course according to Al Gore and Barack Obama, it is settled science, it’s global warming.
Daily Commentary – Monday, January 6, 2014 – Global Warming as Record Breaking COLD Hits Accross the United States?
- This past weekend, much of the Northeast was stuck in a “Polar Vortex” causing record breaking cold
Say it isn’t so …
So much for that settled science that there is global warming, as reported at the UK Telegraph, there actually appears to be global cooling. Hmm, a cold Arctic summer has led to a record 60% increase in the ice cap, leading experts to predict a period of global cooling. The NRO has the 2012 statement from the BBC with their ridiculous global warming, Arctic sea predictions.
There has been a 60 per cent increase in the amount of ocean covered with ice compared to this time last year, they equivalent of almost a million square miles.
In a rebound from 2012′s record low an unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russia’s northern shores, days before the annual re-freeze is even set to begin.
The Northwest Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific has remained blocked by pack-ice all year, forcing some ships to change their routes.
A leaked report to the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) seen by the Mail on Sunday, has led some scientists to claim that the world is heading for a period of cooling that will not end until the middle of this century.
If correct, it would contradict computer forecasts of imminent catastrophic warming. The news comes several years after the BBC predicted that the arctic would be ice-free by 2013.
Al Gore was unavailable for comment.

- Al Gore told the crowd at the Milken Conference.I can tell you looking out the window there is no global warming at my house. 8-10 inches of snow in May!
