Posted on 02/09/2013 6:32:26 AM PST by navysealdad
The National Weather Service is issuing blizzard warnings as winter storm Nemo barrels toward the Northeast, bringing with it 50 mph winds and an estimated 10-14 inches of snow. Up to three feet of snow is expected in some areas in between costal Maine and northern New Jersey. And those predictions are cancelling flights across the country.
Michael Oppenheimer, a climate change expert at Princeton University, said global warming is increasing extreme winter storms.
Why did the left change the term global warming to climate change? Guess they got tired of holding global warming protests during snowstorms.
Global Warming dicktators predicts that global warming will soon be positioned as a threat to Nemo, the baby clownfish in the 2003 Pixar movie Finding Nemo. Don't tell them

I am getting ready to hunker down. Let me know when I can come out of my New England bunker.
This is normal here, it’s just that it hasn’t been lately. GW has been proven b.s. It’s now actually cooling and people better pray it doesn’t get worse.
1 hour from now
26 inches so far at 9 AM, about 20 miles west of Boston. About half of it came after midnight.
We're all hoping he doesn't leave us a present. 8-P
Reporting from Worcester, MA.
Thanks to Climate Change, we only got a foot here in No. New Jersey. With GW, it might have been as little as 12 inches!
Pathetic. Now they’re naming SNOW. ANd there’s never been a blizzard in the Northeast...nope, snow in N.Y. and New England is freakish!
Isn’t it fascinating that the media-and the populace-avidly embraces the idea of being victims of overwhelming forces of nature, yet refuses to see the danger of Islam because the concept of millions of enemy is too big? Feeling helpless against weather is ok, feeling helpless against Islam isn’t.
Thuderstorms and strong weather fronts will be named soon, they’ll do tornadoes too; but that will have to be after the fact unless they are on the ground long enough to be designated “ Thomaso the Tornado”. This would all be very entertaining if it weren’t so pathetic.
It wasn’t long ago when RFK Jr. was saying the days of sledding in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic were over forever.
I’m up in Rutland. I have two Great Pyrennes and they LOVE this stuff!
In 1978, the Blizzard of ‘78 in NE was the coming of the next ice age.
In 2013, the Blizzard of ‘13 in NE ‘is now’ glowball warming
8-) I have a mutt who's all bark and and a snow puss ;-)
Used to have a malamute who LOVED the snow. It was the only time of the year when she would smile. She'd just lie down in the snow and soak it in. Had a golden retriever at the same time, and the webbing in his paws would get gummed up. He spent all his time trying to clean his paws.
and aren’t we all still waiting for the next Al Gore press conference? he needs to explain this to the world.
Yeah, they’ll roll around in it and get playful with each other in it like two puppies.
They can get snow balls in their paws as well but it’s usually with the wet snow, which thank God we didn’t get here. Lot’s of fluff and easy to plow with my ATV, but man is it high and it just takes time.
31 inches here in Conn. Finally stopped about 10 minutes ago.
35-36 inches in North Haven, CT. Beats our record of 30 inches from 2010. Glad I still have my roof rake from then.
Sun’s out now and it ain’t looking pretty.
When did they start naming snowstorms?
So, where are all the news reports of the poor starving hoards digging in dumpsters for a scrap of food like in Sandy?
My husband has a friend in Bridgewater. As of 8:00 this morning he had two feet of snow, no power, no heat, hurricane level gusts and outside temps in the teens. Fortunately he has a gas stove so that at least he can make his coffee! He’s a pediatrician and on call and has to be judicious about using his cell phone. My husband, a snow lover, is jealous.
Glowball Warming at my house
That mound on the left is a car - lol
The fence is 4' high
Mailbox is there somewhere...but no mail today anyways
Dang, didn’t realize you all got hit that bad. I’m in the northern part of New London county.
Yeah roof rake. Ugh, this is gonna be a long weekend.
It wasn't the National Weather Service. It was one of the alphabet networks. I think NBC. There is no official designation for naming snowstorms.
“Nemo?” It has a name?
I think the point should be our soft sophisticated society
cannot cope with things. Every storm is “the worse ever”.
I recall many storms, sometimes back to back. The winters around the JFK inaugeration were quite bad by today’s standards. The blizzard of 78 in No Virginia was bad too, 30 inches or so at Dulles airport. The no name storm of 63 or so. Each was the worse ever. How about the little ice age wherein in snowed in NYC in June or Valley Forge during the revolution? Meanwhile the climate shills continue with their mantra we are going to hell in a hand basket so lets do something. OK, close the oyster farms in the recreation area in NorCal, wow, great start. Let’s get rid of those incandescent bulbs, no bother with the poisonous mercury, we can deal with that. On and on. Maybe if too many navy personnel get on Guam it will capsize (actual rant by some coke headed congressman). Meanwhile the real problems, those islamic terrorists are no real problem, after all, Obama got OBL.
Eight inches here in Monmouth County. For those of you unfamiliar with NJ that's south central and I'm about 15 miles west of the Atlantic Ocean and Asbury Park.
I just got in from shoveling all of the Gorebull warming. There is over two feet in my little corner of Massachusetts. And as I was shoveling, the wind came up and whipped everything all around again...kind of cool, like a movie with a big roar and all this snow comin’ at ya. Kind of like...winter?
The silly panic that began on Wednesday and culminated with Deval Patrick scratching his fascist itch and banning everyone from the roadways (essentially shutting down every business, reducing income, shortening paychecks and reducing tax revenue - Deval’s favorite) is a recent phenomenon. It shows how sad we’ve become. Most people don’t need to be told by Big Daddy Gubmint not to go sightseeing or traveling long distances in a blizzard. We used to be able to rely on the judgment of each person to use common sense when deciding to travel in bad weather. Another responsibility we’ve forfeited to Big Daddy Gubmint?
People pay big dollars for that climate in Tahoe.
I’m right on the corner of Mercer, Middlesex and Somerset Counties. I got 11 inches of the white stuff here.
When did they start naming blizzards?
Is this storm the worst that has EVER happened? Is GLO-BULL warming to blame?
Weather Channel...owned by NBC
Hah!...The Weather Channel will then develop a “Spin Zone” segment for reporting on their named tornadic systems...BTW, the spell-checker just kicked in on the word “tornadic”.
Son went out earlier this morning, but the thrower got stuck between the car and a snow bank, and he got frustrated and came back in. ;o) Hubby and he and are fixing to go out to get it going and do the final (we hope) clean up.
Remind me again why I lived so long in that liberal hellhole of the Northeast?
Thanks. I knew NBC was involved, forgot about the Weather Channel.
Checking in from Tallahassee, Fl. It is about 60 at the moment with intense sun showers. Sun showers are expected to intensify and continue until nightfall.
Will attempt to be brave and venture out into this weather. Will report back if I survive...
The other 3 seasons, especially the summers
Short drive to everything
I miss some stuff, but not enough to go back and endure Nov - Mar or the politics. It’s a great place to visit.
I’ll be in my doomsday bunker until the threat of any near-earth asteroids passes and I should still be able to pick up the Golf Channel at Pebble Beach.
I believe it was the Weather Channel. It gives them a shorthand way to talk about the storms. Right now they're still talking about 'Nemo' in the Northeast, and 'Orka' in the Western Plains.
Nemo spelled backwards is “Omen”.
Looking at the picures from the Blizzard of '78, it's apparent some people don't have common sense. Getting people off the roads in advance of the worst of the storm made it easier not only for people to get home safely, but reduced the possibility of pile-ups like what happened in ME.
Yeah, it sounded fascist, according to the news reports, but looking at what had happened before, I think it was prudent. If there hadn't been those 'official' announcements, some folks night have stayed at their jobs until 5, and they would have been clogging the roads until well after 7 or 8, when the really heavy snow and winds were getting going. And other companies that had later closing times decided on their own to close early, for the safety of their employees. Having the cars off the roads made it easier for the plows to keep the roads clear; they didn't have to dodge idiots on the road, or the cars they might have had to leave behind after getting stuck in the slush and heavy snow.
Our company closed at 11am, which gave me time to make a last minute grocery run on my way home. Hubby made a quick run for a little more gas, just in case we needed to make extra passes with the snow thrower, but we were all safe, snug and warm at home, by 4pm, when the snow started really falling
We never lost power. Our next door neighbor is a pediatric orthopedic surgeon, and is on call, but the person he hired to plow his driveway hasn’t shown up yet. Hubby offered him the use of our car, if he gets called in before the plow shows up.
Global warming yurass; like we never had a snow storm here before.
What a crock.
Gee, I remember the huge blizzards of my youth in Wisconsin in the late fifties and early sixties. A lot of records were set. Both snow and cold records. Little did I know that I was actually roasting from global warming. Could have fooled me. I guess my frozen nostrils from walking to school in sub-zero weather was actually a symptom of tropical weather. (snicker)
