A summer that looks a whole lot more like winter has travelers across the West scrambling to revise their Fourth of July itineraries or at least their packing lists.

Ski poles are replacing fishing poles at popular hiking and camping spots where late-winter snowstorms blanketed Western mountains from the Rockies to the Sierra Nevada.

Back in the 60’s (62 I think) it snowed a little bit on the 4th of July in N. Mn. Stinky summer that.

Bush has nothing to do with this. It’s Dick Cheney’s Halliburton machine that’s causing damage.

late-winter snowstorms

July isn't "late winter" anywhere on this planet.

even the Obama administration is admitting it’s getting cooler not warmer. from official US Gov website:

” Cooling degree-days during 2011 are assumed to be 14 percent lower than last year, “

satellites show it’s been getting cooler since at least 2003.
and i was reading stuff by Russian astrophysicists back then, who were already predicted a coming “mini-ice age”,
like the Maunder Minimum, due solely to decreased solar output.

AGW is a total hoax. NASA has been caught fudging data more than once, to “hide the decline”.

I don’t think they’re predicting new snow on 7/4 — just that lots of it’ll still be around then. The story definitely doesn’t make that clear, though.

I went on a NOLS course in the Wind River Range back in 1978. The instructors told us there were two seasons in the Winds - winter and the 4th of July.

It snowed on the 4th of July.

some High Sierra resorts will have runs open.. looks to be warming up the next few days too.. hope the snowpak doesn’t all melt at once.
