    Yesterday I posted this quote from Elizabeth from the Will Steger Foundation global warming expedition to the artic.............. It felt so good to be back on trail. The weather was relatively warm for this time of year, there was little wind and the sun was shining. The mountains plunge dramatically to the ice on all sides. The U-shape of the head of the fiord ahead of us gave us a clue to the glaciations that sculpted this land, grinding away the granite to leave sheer walls of bare rock. I felt like I was inside an I-Max movie. I couldn't...

  • Chick-fil-A gives free food to motorists stranded in Southern snowstorm

    01/29/2014 12:51:54 PM PST · by Liz · 18 replies ^ | 1/29/14 | TODD STARNES
    Motorists stranded on Highway 280, Birmingham, Ala, found food and shelter thanks to the kindness and generosity of Chick-fil-A owner, Mark Meadows. Founded by a Christian family, it’s no secret that the business is run on biblical values. Once Chick-Fil-a determined that stranded drivers, stuck in their cars for nearly seven hours, went without food or water, the Chick-fil-A staff went into action, cooking several hundred sandwiches then braving the icy storm to hand out the sandwiches. Chick-Fil-a staffers braved the falling snow and ice, slipping and sliding, as they offered their famous hot juicy chicken breasts tucked between two...

    Courtesy of the Minnesota Historical SocietyNobles County native Morton Bassett: "It was a beautiful day for mid-winterand no one even thought of what a change an hour's time could bring." The winter of 1887-1888 was ferocious and unrelenting. November vacillated between ice storms, snowstorms and sub-zero temperatures. December dumped mountains of snow: 20.2 inches in Moorhead, 39.5 inches at Morris, 33 inches at Mankato. Then on Jan. 5, 1888, a massive sleet storm coated the snowy drifts with treacherous ice, putting scores of restless farmers and schoolchildren under house arrest but for the most essential chores. Finally, though, on Jan....

    The bus driving Southern Illinois' basketball team home from a road game got stuck in a ditch along Interstate 57 on Sunday night. Illinois has been pounded by snow since New Year's Day. According to an ESPN report, the bus got stuck after the driver pulled off the road with hopes of waiting out the snowstorm. Once the driver tried to get the bus back on the road, it was immovable. The highway was closed at this point, and they were unable to get a tow. They likely won't get back to campus until Monday morning after taking on Illinois...

    Northeast residents are bracing for a cold welcome to 2014 due to a winter storm predicted to bring snow and frigid temperatures across much of the region. Though snow began falling overnight in parts of New England and New York, forecasters say the full storm would not hit until later Thursday. As much as a foot of snow or more was forecast for some areas overnight Thursday into Friday, and temperatures were expected to plummet, with some areas seeing highs just above zero, the National Weather Service said.

    There was a ghoulish creepiness to US Secretary of State John Kerry’s visit to Israel last week. Here we were, beset by the greatest winter storm in a hundred years. All roads to Jerusalem were sealed off. Tens of thousands of Jerusalemites and residents of surrounding areas were locked down in their houses, without power, heat, telephone service or water. And all of the sudden, out of nowhere, Kerry appeared. As Hamas-ruled Gazans begged the supposedly hated IDF to come and save them from the floods, and as Israel took over rescue operations for stranded Palestinians living under the rule...

    Pennington County has opened two large disposal pits for western South Dakota ranchers with cattle killed in an early October blizzard. Up to 4 feet of snow fell in the Black Hills area during the storm, killing tens of thousands of cattle. Alexa White with the Pennington County Emergency Operations Center says 139 animals were picked up from county rights of way and dumped in the pits over the weekend. She says the 20-feet-deep pits have plenty of room for ranchers' cattle. State officials say at least 10,000 to 20,000 head of livestock died, but the number will likely rise...

The worst of the storm will hit late Friday and Friday night and will wind down Saturday morning. However, lingering effects from blowing and drifting snow, blocked roads and other travel delays are likely to linger into much of the weekend. Numerous flight delays and cancellations are possible centered on New England, but these problems will be felt elsewhere across the nation. Strong winds will not...
