    A severe winter storm could dump up to 18 inches of snow across the eastern US Monday as some half a million homes are already without power in the southeast — but New York will largely be spared, forecasters said Monday. The heaviest snowfall — likely between 6 and 10 inches — is expected in parts of northern Virginia and Maryland, as well as in Delaware and southern New Jersey, AccuWeather meteorologist Nicole LoBiondo told The Post.

    Hundreds of homes burned and tens of thousands of people were evacuated after a rare wind-driven wildfire tore through suburban neighborhoods in Colorado on Thursday, authorities said. Gov. Jared Polis declared a state of emergency in the area, calling the blaze — which ballooned to 1,600 acres in a few hours amid 100-mph winds — “absolutely devastating.” After toppled power lines started the grass fire around 11 a.m. south of Boulder, the flames quickly spread through the towns of Louisville and Superior, Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle said during a news conference. “This was consuming football field lengths of land...

An enthusiastic Avalinn Rackley, 7, reacted to the news when filmed by her grandmother, Pam Moore, weeks after her older sister and best friend Annistyn was killed by a tornado that also destroyed the family home in Caruthersville, Missouri on December 10.

    McClellan Financial Publications, Inc ^ | December 22, 2021 | Tom McClellan
    People think that the Fed controls inflation, and they think that because they were taught to think that while getting expensive educations at institutions of higher learning. And besides, everyone says so, and so it must be true. But what if I could model the movements of inflation rates using no financial or economic data at all as inputs? What would that do to your own personal confidence about the premise of the Fed controlling inflation? This is the quandary I am going to confront you with in this week’s chart, and it is understandably going to make you feel...

    Cars still being inspected, number could rise Supposedly, those remade orders will be prioritized when production lines reopen this week. The scrappage number could increase. There were Corvettes parked outside the facility for shipping that are still being checked for damage. A skeleton crew of 90 skilled workers from UAW Local 2164 has stayed on the job since the weather disturbance, out of 1,200 total line workers. GM quickly moved people and resources from facilities as far away as Detroit to help rebuild, so GM's intention to begin the process of making Bowling Green fully operational on Monday, December 20...

    American ^ | December 15, 2021 | Anthony Watts
    Speaking in Wilmington, Delaware on Saturday, resident Joe Biden blamed the recent deadly tornado outbreak in Kentucky on “climate change.” Biden stated, “The fact is we all know everything is more intense when the climate is warming and obviously it has some impact here.” Biden’s statement is laughably inept and easily disproved. All one has to do is look past the opinions, pronouncements, and hand waving and concentrate on what science and data actually say about the issues. First, the top five deadliest tornadoes in America all occurred between 1840 and 1936. The Great Natchez Tornado on May 7, 1840,...

    The Left’s credo: Never, ever, ever let a good crisis go to waste.FEMA chief says powerful storms ‘new normal’ in era of climate change.As usual of course the existing facts don’t support her stupid claim.Mind you, the US didn’t even have a nationwide Doppler Radar system during the 1954-74 tornado cycle. It wasn’t installed until the mid-90s and has been significantly updated ever since so we are now reporting previously undetectable tornadic events. So who knows how many tornadoes there actually were between 1954-74. It wouldn’t have been less but it could have been more – much more, maybe double...

    As states across the Midwest and South pick up the pieces after a spate of tornadoes believed to have killed dozens of people, the top US emergency management official warned Sunday that such cataclysms will be the “new normal.” “The effects we are seeing of climate change are the crisis of our generation,” FEMA Administrator Deanne Criswell told CNN’s “State of the Union.” Criswell added that while it was “not unusual” for tornadoes to strike in December, “at this magnitude, I don’t think we have ever seen one this late in the year.” “Even the severity and the amount of...

    A significant severe weather outbreak, including the potential for nighttime tornadoes, is expected Friday night from parts of the lower and mid-Mississippi Valley into the Tennessee and lower Ohio valleys. A potent upper-level disturbance punching out of the Rockies and into the Plains on Friday will enter the Mississippi Valley by Friday night. This will cause a surface low-pressure system to intensify as it tracks into the Great Lakes region overnight, pushing a strong cold front across the central U.S. from the Ohio Valley to East Texas. Warm, humid air from the Gulf of Mexico will surge northward out ahead...
