  • England is on for its Coldest May since Record-Keeping Began back in 1659 (during the Maunder Minimum)

    Following its coldest APRIL since 1922, England is now on for its coldest MAY since record-keeping began some 362 years ago–since the Maunder Minimum (1645-1715)! Back in 1659, England was still processing the death of Oliver Cromwell, who, after the execution of King Charles I, had ruled the Commonwealth of England for 5 years. The year 1659 is also the start date of the Central England Temperature (CET) dataset, which has proved an invaluable resource for meteorologists and climate scientists alike. Astonishingly, what the dataset reveals in 2021, in this time of supposed “catastrophic global heating,” is that England is...

    ‘What’s on course to hit the U.S. starting this weekend looks BIG,” says “It looks unprecedented.” According to the latest GFS models (above) from May 6 through May 8, periodic pockets of out-of-season cold will bring temperature departures crashing down to some 8C to 16C below the seasonal average. But it’s on Sunday, May 9 that the real problems are forecast to begin…. … From Montana to Virginia, temperatures are scheduled to plunge as much as 20C below the seasonal norm. Then, from May 10 to May 12 (image below), a rare mid-spring freeze sinks south to engulf Texas,...

    Interesting how this can happen during a period of ‘global warming,’ isn’t it? You don’t suppose we’re being played do you? Northern Hemisphere snow mass is an historic 700 gigatons above average. (A gigaton is one billion tons, so that means it’s an historic 700 billion tons above average.)

    Hamilton’s LGBTQ Advisory Committee claimed in a report that snow on the city’s sidewalks is a “disability justice” issue which adversely impacts the city’s LGBTQ community. The letter of support was presented to city council on Tuesday in response to a prior decision by the Hamilton’s Public Works Committee to not expand the portion of sidewalks cleared by the city following winter squalls. On April 19, the Public Works Committee voted down a motion by Coun. Nrinder Nann to vastly increase the area the city was responsible for. According to Nann’s motion, the city would have to clear an additional...

    The winter storm that descended on Texas this past week has offered some life-changing lessons. With power outages in my part of Houston lasting for 15 hours (and longer elsewhere), heat was sparse. The roads were iced over, with no salt trucks mobilized, throughout the city and surrounding communities. Although a Cleveland, Ohio, native, I had an initial feeling of almost utter helplessness. Normal societal function had been so quickly eliminated.

    Six pickup trucks work together to pull a semi truck up an icy, snowy hill in this video. It happened in Saline County, Arkansas this past week near Interstate 30 and Alcoa Road. According to the Facebook post by Stephanie Cole, initially three pickup trucks chained themselves to the big rig, but it wasn’t enough power, so a fourth, fifth, and sixth joined in to help, sled dog team style. In the clip, several of the pickups can be seen slipping and sliding, but the team eventually gets it done, and people can be heard cheering in the background as...

    Snowy winters could become a thing of the past as climate change affects the UK, Met Office analysis suggests. It is one of a series of projections about how UK's climate could change, shared with BBC Panorama. It suggests by the 2040s most of southern England could no longer see sub-zero days. By the 2060s only high ground and northern Scotland are still likely to experience such cold days. The projections are based on global emissions accelerating. It could mean the end of sledging, snowmen and snowball fights, says Dr Lizzie Kendon, a senior Met Office scientist who worked on...

    Heavy snowfall blanketed the Acropolis and other ancient monuments in Athens, caused power cuts and halted COVID-19 vaccinations in the Greek capital on Tuesday as the weather brought many services across the country to a standstill. Greek media reported that three deaths in separate parts of the country were linked with the bad weather. State ERT TV said two elderly men with breathing problems died after their mechanical respiratory aids stopped working due to power cuts, and a farmer on the island of Crete was found dead in a snow-covered area near his sheepfold.

    A deadly winter storm pummeling the country's South and mid-section left millions without power in Texas early Tuesday and spawned a possible tornado that killed three in North Carolina.

More than 4.1 million people are waking up without power in Texas, according to, as record low temperatures bring a demand for power that the state's electric grid cannot keep up with.

No school buses or their charges inside would be harmed in the making of...
