Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Second ice storm in 3 days pummels NE U.S.

Ice storms pummel much of the northern and northeastern United States

Two winter storms in three days hit the U.S. northeast causing havoc across the region.  In the West, parts of Washington state were hit with heavy snow storms. As much as 10 inches of snow fell, causing  power outages  and traffic congestion.


Not so fast!
Bags being returned from canceled flights jam the baggage claim area at a crowded Sea-Tac Airport [Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Washington, United States.] Numerous flights were canceled after heavy snow moved through the area. Leaving the airport is difficult as surface transportation is also being disrupted because of snow (December 21, 2008). Photo: Karen Ducey/Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

Heavy snows and strong winds forced the closure of Snoqualmie Pass, east of Seattle on highway I-90. Conditions there were “just a complete whiteout blizzard” on the pass, Washington State Patrol trooper Dan McDonald told the Seattle Post-Intelligencer newspaper. “I’ve never seen anything like this. The side winds are probably easy 70 mph. They’re taking us off the road.”

Up to 30 cm of snow is expected in areas west of Boston, leading to long delays and cancellations at regional airports throughout New England. In New Hampshire up to 20,000 customers were without power, while in Massachusetts power outages affected about 6,000 households and businesses.
