2019: And the records keep tumbling Parts of California breaks a 100-year record with 6ft, (almost 2 metres) of snow in just 24 hours

And the records keep tumbling, yesterday reports came from Queensland that 1 year's rain fell in just 7 days after a month of a record-breaking heatwave.
Today the Weather Channel has reported 6ft, (almost 2 metres) of snow has fallen in just 24 hours in parts of California breaking a 100-year record.
The incredible amounts of snow have fallen throughout parts of the Mountain West since last Friday after a one-two punch from winter storms Kai and Lucian.
The Sierra Nevada, straddling the border between California and Nevada, has been particularly hard-hit, where one ski resort tallied 6 feet of snow in just one day.
Taking that crown is June Mountain, east of Yosemite National Park. June Mountain reported 72 inches of new snow in the 24 hours ending 9 a.m. PST Sunday morning.
The storm-total snowfall at June Mountain from Friday through mid-morning Sunday was measured at 96 inches, according to the National Weather Service in Reno, Nevada.
Yes, that's 8 feet (2.5 metres) of snow in less than three days.
And it was too much for the ski resort to handle; June Mountain was closed on Monday as workers attempted to dig out, the resort.

  1. With the vast amount of feed-back loops now out-of-control, the continuing geo-engineering aerosol spraying program is accelerating civilizations end-game. This will not end well, but it will end, perhaps as soon as five (5) years. We are past the bottom of an increasingly exponential curve of biosphere and climate collapse.

    1. I concur Wok and Roll! I just read a research paper by Jem Bendell a professor in climate science, titled: "Deep Adaptation-A Map for Navigating Climate Tragedy". In the authors abstract he says, " The purpose of this paper is to provide readers with an opportunity to reassess their work and life in the face of an inevitable near term social collapse due to climate change." ..."climate induced societal collapse is now inevitable in the near term." Runaway climate change is now in play. Bendell says, "It is a truism that we do not know what the future will be. But, we can see trends...and the evidence before us suggests that we are set for disruptive and uncontrollable levels of climate change, bringing starvation, destruction, migration, disease and war. We do not know for certain how disruptive the impacts of climate change will be or where will be most affected, especially as economic and social systems will respond in complex ways. But the evidence is mounting that the impacts will be catastrophic to our livelihoods and the societies that we live in. Our norms of behavior, that we call our 'civilization' may also degrade. When we contemplate this possibility, it can seem abstract. But when I say starvation, destruction, migration, disease and war, I mean in your own life. ... These descriptions may seem overly dramatic, but these words were chosen as an attempt to cut through the sense that this topic is purely theoretical." ..." The probability of collapse means that effort at reforming our current system is no longer the pragmatic choice."
      Wok and Roll, you said 5 years, Bendell wrote in this paper that some of his colleagues believe we face inevitable extinction and a collapse of civilization in the next 12 months when harvests fail across the northern hemisphere. They see social collapse leading to immediate meltdowns of nuclear power stations and thus human extinction being a near term phenomenon not more then 5 years from now.
      Bendell himself concludes that dramatic changes that will impact massively and negatively on agriculture will be within 20 years, stating that those impacts have already begun.
      Seems you are corect Wok! This research paper includes talk of geoengineering but never directly stated as in play, but implies a relation to its damaging effects towards this climate impact on social collapse. Deeming it ' unpredictable' and 'dangerous'.
      Well they're getting close to admitting what we know IS in play and so if our count down time is 5-20 years excluding geoengineering, imagine if it was included! We are in deep trouble!
      I write this because, as the fabric of our society and ecosystems breaks down, reality forces us to reflect on what really matters most! That mindset is imperative as a tool individually. Every little action now matters towards lessening the pain if possible and must be taken by we the people because we have lunatics and liars ruling our world and our lives with poison on purpose simply because of greed and the insane notion that madmen can improve and or control nature! God speed to us all!
      Thanks to Gary for posting these climate catastrophes that main stream news ignores! Best to you always.
