Heard on the News They got 19" of Snow in Amarillo, just 3 tenths short of the record set in 1934.

 

That's amazing!! Guess I won't object to the weather service missing their guess when we get the 4" predicted in Des Moines for today after they said 1-2 esterday.

On the other hand, now they don't have to come up here to get the 'experience'.

Extreme storms and freak weather events are a part of climate change. That will be a real hardship down there especially if it takes out their power.

The Texas Panhandle and Western OK  got 'snowed' from what I hear. Tulsa missed out, just got a little dusting. We're above freezing as yet.

My daughter lives in Channing , Tx . about 40 mi. north of Amirillo,  talked to her yesterday and she said it was terrible down there. But her husband just had to go play with his new hemi 4x4 and cost him $100 to get towed out of ditch . Daughter not happy .

I hope you all down there stay warm and safe till the snow leaves.  

 

Larry, I hope he didn't damage anything going into the ditch.  Sometimes just that can cause lots of problems.

I always laugh at people who want to yell climate change. Weather patterns have fluctuated for as long as there has been weather. Places that don't normally get snow occasionally do. Places that normally get snow occasionally don't. No climate change, just the way things work.

Regardless of what authority you believe from 6000-4.5 billion years as the age of earth. The 200 yrs. that man has been keeping accurate weather records, does not make a reasonable scientific sampling to make reasonable assumptions.
That is my opinion. No doubt the things we do has an effect on the environment but doubt we will live to see to what effect.
I believe based on history the weather runs in cycles. But do not believe it is something we can base wide spread panic on.

If we had 19" of snow, no one would even think twice about it. If it happens in NYC or Chicago you'd think the world was coming to an end. 

Go figure!  :hitting_self_roller:
