    Climate alarmists at the UK’s Guardian newspaper warned Monday a quarter of European ski resorts will face scarce snow because of global warming. The very existence of many European ski resorts is in jeopardy, the Guardian’s environment editor reports, since 25 percent of European resorts will suffer a snow shortage every other year with 2ºC of “global heating.” The article cites a study titled “Climate change exacerbates snow-water-energy challenges for European ski tourism” published this summer in the journal Nature Climate Change. “Ski tourism is a substantial component of the economy of mountainous regions in Europe and is highly vulnerable...

    When Chase Merrill took his first ride in his new Rivian R1S, it was his favorite car that he had ever driven. Merrill, 24, put down a deposit on an R1S three years ago at the urging of family members who also own Rivians. He was unsure about making the switch from his 2015 Ford Edge to a fully electric SUV, especially since he lives in a relatively remote area in the Adirondack Mountains, New York. But once he got behind the wheel of the $85,626 car on March 10, those worries melted away. "I was in a honeymoon phase,"...

    Heigh-ho, heigh-ho it's off to the job centre they go — for the seven dwarves have been replaced by 'magical creatures' for Disney's live-action remake of Snow White. Rachel Zegler, who plays the fictional princess, has been pictured for the first time with her new companions who appear to be a mix of genders, ethnicities and heights. The actress, wearing Snow White's famous yellow and blue dress and a red cape, is trailed by the group who are dressed in brightly coloured clothes and carrying work tools. They were spotted shooting scenes in Bedfordshire on Thursday in pictures obtained exclusively...

    Snow on Mount Washington in June is not rare. This year, however, snow totals are the highest on record for the summer month and forecasters say more is on the way. On June 11, the Mount Washington Observatory announced 8.4 inches of snow for the month, a new record for the highest peak in the Northeast. The observatory began keeping track of snow totals beginning in 1932. Weather experts predict even more snow in the days ahead. ... Statistically speaking, our last snowfall of the season typically occurs in early to mid-June most years,” the observatory wrote in a Twitter...

    Snowfall and rain expected until end of week in Southwest Colorado.. Southwest Colorado residents expecting warmer spring temperatures may want to hold onto their winter jackets a little longer as more snow is expected throughout the week. Yet another atmospheric river is passing through Southwest Colorado bringing snow primarily to the higher elevations. Storms earlier this week have increased Durango’s snow total by 1 to 3 inches, said Scott Stearns, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Grand Junction. Cortez received about the same amount while Pagosa Springs received slightly more at 5 to 8 inches. Wolf Creek Pass received...

    The Red Desert and the larger area surrounding Rawlins is usually a winter haven for wildlife – one of the few places elk, deer and antelope can migrate to where large patches of ground afford at least some forage. That’s not happening this year, and as many as half of the antelope in the area, as well as significant numbers of mule deer, are expected to die as a result, some Wyoming Game and Fish Department officials said. Radio collars are telling a heart-wrenching story in some areas. Game and Fish frequently captures animals to be fitted with radio collars...

    More than 9,000 California residents were under evacuation orders Friday as a new atmospheric river brought heavy rain, thunderstorms and strong winds, swelling rivers and creeks and flooding several major highways during the morning commute.

    Authorities say 12 people have been found dead so far following the historic storms that buried the San Bernardino Mountains under several feet of snow, covering homes and paralyzing travel. “So far, we can only confirm (one), a traffic accident, as weather-related,” San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department spokesperson Mara Rodriguez said Wednesday. “The preliminary information in the other deaths does not indicate they are weather-related, but those investigations are ongoing.” “There’s going to be a lot more,” said Megan Vazquez, a volunteer. “It’s been very cold here. It’s been below freezing, so if somebody didn’t have electricity or gas to...

    Officials throughout the Sierra Nevada warned North and South Lake Tahoe residents to prepare for potential roof collapses and flooding ahead of the storm forecast to hit the Tahoe region midday Thursday. "Snow accumulations can fall and harm/kill you, depending on their size," warned the North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District via Facebook on Tuesday evening. "Be aware that a roof may collapse with little or no warning," it added. The next storm is expected to hit the Lake Tahoe area Thursday afternoon, bringing warmer and wetter conditions than past storms. Areas below 6,000-7,000 feet — including Truckee and most...

    CRESTLINE, CA — In his ongoing series of investigations into any reports of white powder, Hunter Biden has traveled to the San Bernardino Mountains of California after hearing several feet of such powder had been seen covering the mountaintops. "I'm going to get to the bottom of this," Hunter was heard saying just before he climbed aboard a private jet bound for the Golden State. "As soon as I heard about the white powder, I knew I needed to pack up and come help in any way I can." Regions of California have been experiencing unseasonably cold temperatures and heavy...

    Amid a storm that has left residents in the mountains trapped for days after 17 feet of snow was dumped there, California Governor Gavin Newsom has left the state without explanation. The Democrat, considered a potential successor to President Joe Biden by progressives, was reported to be out of California on 'personal travel' Friday, according to Fox News. He is scheduled to return Sunday. Newsom's press office did not disclose where exactly Newsom had traveled to, only to say that before he left the state, he visited Diablo Canyon, its last nuclear power plant, on Wednesday.

    Yosemite National Park remains closed indefinitely as startling photos show popular parts of Yosemite Valley buried in snow. Heated tents in Curry Village and a shuttle stop near Yosemite Falls, both highly trafficked locations even during the cold season, were blanketed in snow. The park originally closed to visitors last weekend as severe winter weather approached the Sierra Nevada. The storm ultimately dumped "up to 15 feet" of snow in some areas of Yosemite, the park noted on Twitter, and created whiteout conditions across the region over several days. For its part, Yosemite Valley tallied 40 inches of snow Tuesday...

    Hail, light snow and graupel have reached areas across the southern counties, including Orange, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, San Diego and Riverside. Most winters, the rest of the country might be envious of the weather conditions in Southern California — where locals enjoy Christmas with perfect weather and the misery of shoveling snow is nonexistent for city dwellers. But this year, even Angelenos are not immune to snow, as white patches surround the Hollywood sign and graupel reaches the Happiest Place on Earth. “Right now we have really cold low pressure moving over Southern California ... bringing these scattered showers...

    Despite the record-breaking scale of the blizzard pummeling Lake Tahoe, it seems some drivers are still a bit confused about the conditions of the area’s roads — or at least that’s the takeaway from some of the increasingly direct messaging coming from area CHP and sheriffs' offices around the Tahoe Basin. Officials in surrounding areas of the Sierra Nevada issued equally direct messages for drivers, including the Mono County Sheriff's Office, which told drivers Tuesday morning: “The roads are closed. All of them. There is no alternate route, back way, or secret route. It's a blizzard, people. You cannot see...

    We all want uninterrupted postal service, but that's just not always possible. The U.S. Postal Service (USPS) has a responsibility to ensure the safety of its employees, customers, and our mail. And sometimes, that means operations can't proceed normally. Over time, we have seen the Postal Service suspend deliveries because of aggressive animals, and close post offices in the midst of natural disasters. Now, the agency been forced to suspend services in six different states. If you were planning to head to the post office anytime soon, you may need to change your plans depending on where you live.
