global warming snow

If the forecast holds up, global warming is going to cause a ton of snow this week.  So, I guess you can say that we are going to have global warming by the foot! Henry Margusity, from Accuweather, has more…

 

 



As usual, we will keep the coverage going here at the CH 2.0 Bunker. Just beware that this storm has the potential for massive accumulations of global warming. The global warming might also freeze on the roads, causing hazardous travel conditions.  Global warming also has the potential to cause school delays and cancellations, and in extreme amounts, causes traffic to snarl.  Please be careful when dealing with global warming!

Chick-fil-A feeds stranded drivers

If I recall correctly, Chick-fil-A is the same business which was viciously attacked by liberals and  homosexuals because of their stand for morality. I believe when that happened Chick-fil-A was overwhelmed with the support of the American people. I know the company I work for bought sandwiches for every employee (over 200) the day of the supposed “boycott” of Chick-fil-A. I read daily liberals spouting off hatred for conservatives and how it’s more “loving” to murder an unborn child than to give it a chance at life; always how “compassionate” liberals and liberal organizations are … you know like Planned Parenthood, etc.

Down in Alabama global warming has devastated the Birmingham area with a severe snow storm. Hundreds of motorists were stranded in their vehicles up to seven hours with no food or water. Guess who came to help?

Not Planned Parenthood, nor The Human Rights Campaign. How about The National Gay and Lesbian Taskforce, The NARAL, the Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders, Americans United for the Separation of Church and State, The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom? Was it some benevolent liberals?  Nope. Sorry, no cigar. It was none other than that dastardly racist, homophobe business Chick-fil-A.

Chick-fil-A feeds stranded drivers

By FOX NEWS –             A number of  motorists who had to abandon their vehicles in the snow on Highway 280 outside  of Birmingham, Ala. were able to find shelter in the storm thanks to the  kindness and generosity of Chick-fil-A restaurant employees and the restaurant’s  owner, Mark Meadows.

Once the snow started accumulating, Meadows closed  the restaurant and sent his staff home. But a few hours later, many of them  returned – unable to get to their homes.

“Our store is about a mile and a  half from the interstate and it took me two hours to get there,” manager Audrey  Pitt said. “It was a parking lot as far as I could see.”

So Pitt left her  car on the side of the interstate and joined a flock of bundled up drivers  trudging through the snow.

Some of the drivers had been stuck in their  cars for nearly seven hours without any food or water. So the staff of the  Chick-fil-A decided to lend a helping hand.

“We cooked several hundred  sandwiches and stood out on both sides of 280 and handed out the sandwiches to  anyone we could get to – as long as we had food to give out.”

The  staffers braved the falling snow and ice and Chick-fil-A refused to take a  single penny for their sandwiches.

The meal was a gift – no strings  attached.

So why did they give away their food?

“This company is  based on taking care of people and loving people before you’re worried about  money or profit,” Pitts says.

THE REST RIGHT ABOUT HERE

New Round of Global Warming to Strike the Northeast: Storm Will Evolve into Blizzard

Share

weatherOnce again, we are seeing global warming causing cold and snow in the Northeast.  Accuweather has more…

http://www.accuweather.com/en/weather-video/dangerous-storm-targets-northe/655578741001

The worst of the storm is likely to be Thursday night in the Northeast but will cause enough snow to make roads slippery as early as Wednesday and Thursday in some locations from the Midwest to New England.

 

The storm is forecast to bring a large area of 6- to 12-inch snowfall beginning near the Pennsylvania/New York state border to a large part of New Jersey and southern New England. This includes the entire metropolitan area of New York City and Long Island, northward to Albany, N.Y., and Scranton, Pa. Over a foot of snow will fall in localized areas of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut and the cities of Providence, R.I., and Boston.

 

Within the heaviest snow area, the snow will fall at the rate of 2 inches per hour in some locations, making it difficult for plows to keep up.

 

 

A significant, but lesser snowfall is in store farther southwest in Philadelphia, and farther north in Portland, Maine, Burlington, Vt., and Pittsburgh. Around Baltimore and Washington, D.C., where a small amount of snow is forecast, a quick freeze and slippery travel is possible Thursday evening.

 

For many areas this will be a dry, powdery snow. However, along the mid-Atlantic coast and even southern New England coast for a brief time, a wintery mix will occur early. However, as colder air invades the storm, wet areas will freeze and the snow will become powdery.

Here are some snow maps, again, via Accuweather…

Frankenstorm Update: Hurricane Sandy is Strengthening, Last Minute Preparations Needed

Share

As Hurricane Sandy approaches the East Coast, there is word that she is strengthening.  Here is more from the NY Times…

Forecasters cautioned that the course of the storm could change, but officials from the National Hurricane Center said that it was no longer a question of if the storms would converge — but where and with how much force.

Dr. Knabb of the National Hurricane Center said the storm’s intensity was unlikely to change. “The center of circulation is only going to be a very small part of the story,” he said. “This is not just going to be a coastal event.” People from Virginia northward should be prepared for a “long-duration event,” he said.

Utility companies were rushing to put crews in place to deal with power failures, which state officials warned could be extensive and long lasting. Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey told residents that they should be prepared to go 7 to 10 days without electricity. On Saturday evening, Amtrak began to cancel train service to parts of the East Coast, including between Washington, D.C., and New York.

Also, Accuweather has some advise for preparations…

-Get prescriptions refilled now, especially if you doctor must approve the refill.

-Vote. If the stronger models are correct, power could still be out in some paces on election day. Regardless, that is one less thing you will need to do. The election will not (and shouldn’t be) postponed.

-If you can get an electrician to install a generator, get it done. Do not try to install a generator yourself. If you don’t have a generator, get a power inverter or two. Radio Shack and similar stores sell them. They are a “poor man’s generator” and will keep your cell phone, laptop, and similar charged.

-Keep your car’s gas tank full. If you have a wood-burning fireplace and you know your chimney is clear, get wood. Keep some indoors to keep it dry during the storm. You may need it to heat your home.

-If you live in a 100-year flood plain (you can check at city hall or your library) or on the coast figure out your evacuation strategy now. Make your list of things you will take with you. Fill a few gas cans (the type you would use for your mower) to have extra in the event of power failures. Purchase extra staples. Without power, stores will be closed.

-Purchase booster batteries for your cell phone and other essential equipment.

-If you need insulin or other medicine that must be kept chilled make plans now. Consider what you would do if you were without electricity for a month. If you have an invalid living with you that requires electricity, there will be areas that will be without power for weeks.

-Be proactive. If you live in a heavily wooded area, does someone in your vicinity have a gasoline-powered chain saw? Does it have fuel and a reasonably good chain/blade? Test it, now.

-Get to an ATM. Without power, credit card readers and ATMs will not be working. In a disaster, cash is king. 

OK then, it appears that things are going to get pretty bad, so it’s best that if you haven’t done any preparations that you do so now.  Your humble admins lives by one simple rule-never live in a flood plain.  However, while the CH 2.0 Bunker is high and dry, a power outage has been planned for.

As for blogging, I may have to try the smart phone.  It won’t be able to do much, but updates will be possible.

Frankenstorm: Northeast Braces for Monster Storm

Share

At the time of this writing, tens of millions of Americans are bracing for an potentially powerful combination of a winter storm with hurricane Sandy, labeled “Frankenstorm.”

Here are some excerpts and video…

From Jesse Ferrell of Accuweather…

I said on my WeatherMatrix Facebook Page last night:

“The weather hasn’t ‘scared’ me for a long time, but what I’m seeing tonight on the forecast models, and the seriousness with which I’m seeing famous meteorologists discuss next week’s historic storm, has gotten me a little worried. If you live in any STATE on the East Coast, it’s time to think about preparing for next week’s storm because the track is not certain but the potential devastation seems to be. Tomorrow in my blog I’ll be talking about worst-case scenarios and what you need to be prepared for. Some simple steps can keep next week from being a nightmare for you and your family.”

There were a lot of other “quotables” said in that meeting which will give you some insight into what our meteorologists are thinking. A couple that stood out to me:

– “This will be a catastrophic storm over a large area.”

– “I’m scared about storm surge in NYC, and it will come sooner than people think.”

– “There could be power outages for weeks, and it could affect the election.”

– “The 00Z GFS 900 mb winds essentially show power being knocked out from D.C. to Maine.”

– “This type of storm has never been seen before by meteorologists.”

From Mashable…

From the WaPo…

With computer models locked in on the eventuality of a punishing blow for East Coast from Hurricane Sandy (with the latest model runs favoring the northern mid-Atlantic), analyses suggest this storm may be unlike anything the region has ever experienced.

Model simulations have consistently simulated minimum pressures below 950 mb, which would be the lowest on record in many areas.

“MODELS SHOW PRESSURE WELL BEYOND WHAT HAS EVER BEEN OBSERVED NEAR THE NJ/NY COAST (EVEN EXCEEDING THE 1938 LONG ISLAND EXPRESS [HURRICANE])”, writes NOAA’s Hydrometeorological Prediction Center (HPC).

From the Weather Channel..

I’ll be keeping up with this story with more posts. I obviously have a personal interest, as the CH 2.0 bunker is in the target area.

Hurricane Irene Update 8-24-11

Share

Here is the latest on Hurricane Irene, and it’s potential threat to East Coast to New England.

The potential is for Irene to become a Category 4 storm, and even hit New England as a Category 2!.

This could be ugly folks. Keep checking the CH 2.0, and I’ll update as much as I am able.
