Skip to comments.Historic Cold Last Night Across Pacific Northwest
Posted on 12/09/2013 7:04:26 AM PST by aimhigh
Historic December cold descended upon parts of the Pacific Northwest early Sunday morning, as the mercury dipped to as low as -41 degrees below zero in Oregon. Under a thick blanket of snow, several locations set new records.
At Lakeview, Oregon the mercury dropped to -27 degrees below zero, setting a new all-time record for that location. The previous record was -22 degrees below zero set back in February of 1933 and again in January of 1937.

I want my damned Global Warming. I PAID FOR IT, I WANT IT.
Sez me, "What?!". No thaw this year. Might be why dates were conveniently left out.
Yawn. Just another log in the wood stove. The very same woodstove that the EPA wants to ban and ultimately, send in SWAT jackboots to sledgehammer it into uselessness.
They are welcome to die trying.
68% more ice pack this year than last... record growth... New Ice pack grew by 1,000,000 square miles. Like obama... climate whores lie... always.
Welcome King Barack "Canute" Obama the Great.....
...Obama issues an Executive Order to the Sun...
....to increase it's magnetic field....
and make a good crop of sunspots before elections in 2016....
(PhysOrg.com) -- Sunspot formation is triggered by a magnetic field, which scientists say is steadily declining. They predict that by 2016 there may be no remaining sunspots, and the sun may stay spotless for several decades.
The last time the sunspots disappeared altogether was in the 17th and 18th century, and coincided with a lengthy cool period on the planet known as the Little Ice Age....and lasted 400 years.
Good luck surviving with no electricity and GE modified seeds.

So we trade one hockey stick for another?
Thank-you for that beautiful illustration of King Canute. I snipped it. Where is originally from?
I was curious, so I looked it up. That's about the size of everything in the US, east of the Mississippi. Approximately.
Not a trivial amount of ice.
It was -3 at my house in Boise this morning when I left for work. It’s warmed up to +2 since then (3 hours ago)! Time for some sunbathing!
Global warming language just got more confusing to me. Wouldn’t a temperature of “-22 below zero” be +22?
AND WE WANT IT NOW!!
You can chill a lot of whiskey with that much ice. ;-)
That’s “Gore-Bull” warming.
I like to go to this site every couple of days to track ice progress.
The interactive chart part way down on the left is interesting. It does show a higher ice extent in the Arctic during the 70s & 80s then falling through the 90s and 00s. And now appears to be rising again.
Reading about Arctic exploration in the early 1900s it appears a number of areas had ice free summers back then.
One thing I know - it ain’t got warm enough on Greenland for the Vikings to move back and start farming again - yet.
Thanks for link!
-28 where my parents live in Tumalo Oregon.
This quote and explanatory text comes from viking.no
"Let all men know how empty and worthless is the power of kings. For there is none worthy of the name but God, whom heaven, earth and sea obey".
So spoke King Canute the Great, the legend says, seated on his throne on the seashore, waves lapping round his feet. Canute had learned that his flattering courtiers claimed he was "So great, he could command the tides of the sea to go back". Now Canute was not only a religious man, but also a clever politician. He knew his limitations - even if his courtiers did not - so he had his throne carried to the seashore and sat on it as the tide came in, commanding the waves to advance no further. When they didn't, he had made his point that, though the deeds of kings might appear 'great' in the minds of men, they were as nothing in the face of God's power.
We'd be far better off to have elected Canute president than the evil blot currently disfiguring humanity's rump.
These record reports are from very localized, especially cold spots. If you look at personal weather station histories for the past three days the lows will be significantly higher than those reported in the article.
What you said.
In addition to the ice site I also check this one at the same time...
Just a habit I got into years back when “Man Caused Global Warming” was really hitting everything hard.
It’s kind of nice to keep up with what sun spots and the ice pack are up to.
If you would like more information about Oregon, please FReepmail me. I lost my Oregon list when my computer crashed last month.
Gee...about a year ago my husband made reservations for waikiki...it’s been 80...we are bringing the warmth back soon!!!
Was -23°F Sunday morning for me. This was the coldest I’ve recorded in the six years I’ve lived here.
In nearby Klamath Falls, they were calling it a poor air quality day, so no wood stove burning allowed.
Winter of '72 was the coldest on record in Western Oregon and yesterday it came within a couple degrees of that.
We are in the relative warmth of SE New Mexico, where it was 14 yesterday. But I should mention it dipped to 2 one December night in 2010, and in 2011-2012 (between Dec 23 and about Jan 6) we had 22" of snowfall (14" in one day), more than had ever been recorded before, and more than I had personally seen anywhere since the winter of '62 in Appalachia.
So, how is this global warming?
Dang, it was -4 here in Philomath yesterday night, I want more Algore global warming
I saw -8 driving from Coeur d’Alene to Sandpoint on Saturday night, but it’s warming up rapidly now. We got double digits! GO GLOBAL WARMING!!
**no wood stove burning allowed.**
That’s crazy for the Klamath Falls area.
Being a Ham Radio Operator, I use spaceweather.com and space.com quite a bit. Both great sites and you are 100% correct!
