2010 Year One of the Extremes?

In Winter Officially Starts Today! posted on December 20, 2009, Fire-Earth Warned ‘The Heaviest Blanket of Snow in 100 Years Covered Most of the Northeast US Yesterday’ would be

A Dry Run for Climate Chaos Heading Our Way

So far the Moderators’ prediction has proved 100 percent correct!

As the federal offices in the capital remained shut for a fourth day, public transport reduced by up to 95 percent of the services in Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York, on Thursday, and as thousands of flights canceled throughout the Northeast and many highways closed, due to blizzard conditions, new snow records were set in the area.

  • The National Weather Service (NWS) reported that Wednesday’s blizzard had set a new record of 110cm (54.9 inches) in Washington breaking the capital’s 110-year-old record (54.5 inches set in 1898-99).
  • Baltimore broke its all-time seasonal record with 183cm (72 inches).
  • Philadelphia’s 2009-10 snowfall record of 179cm (70.5 inches) has so far surpassed its previous all-time record of the 65.5-inch total set in 1995-96  winter.

Meanwhile Maryland Governor Martin O’Mally declared a state of emergency, keeping government offices closed in the state.

FIRE-EARTH Forecast for the rest of 2010 (assuming there would be an end to the winter):

Expect soaring temperatures throughout North America and most of Europe. Prepare for primordial, swampy weather!

And this is just Year One for the weather extremes caused by climatic chaos that is heading our way!
