Bigger Amount Of Snow In Your Area This Winter

Mon Mar 20, 2006 2:27 am

Greetings!
http://news.yahoo.com/photos/ss/phot...;_ylu=X3oDMTA2Y3J1dWFkBHNlYwNwaA--

Since I live in a country in the "middle" of America [the continent] I would like to know if this winter is worst, better [less inclement] or similar than others.

Do you think that is due to "El Niño" or to the global warming ?

Thanks!

Here in Switzerland this winter has been VERY snowy...it has been cold but not that exceptionally much than others

Here in Zurich we got within 24 hours 54 cm of snow. This is most since 70 years when the measurement begun.

I'm living in Potsdam, Germany, that's a town close to Berlin. And I can't remember a winter with as much snow as this year. We had nearly continuous snow since Christmas. There were only a few days were the snow melted, but it never took long til it snowed again. Currently we still have some remaining snow, although it slowly melts away. I can't wait for spring which is now overdue.

I don't think this has much to do with long term climate effects like global warming. It's just that the last years were too warm and this winter is a bit too cold.

Thanks for the info, but don't you think that the phenomena described in your second sentence, is precisely due to the global warming?

Sure, here in Potsdam we've a lot of meteorological research institutes. One is the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, which is renown for their research - and they don't doubt the trend called global warming, caused by human interferences (oh I know some still want to believe in some fairy tales, instead of facts). So who would am I, to doubt these researchers?

P.S. I'm curious whether this is going to be the 101st thread about global warming were some ****** try to argue against global warming and its cause.

Same here, it is long ago that we had such a snowy, cold. and long winter. I am sick to death of it and I can't wait for warmer temperatures.

Here in Western Alaska it has been slightly above average for snow. We have had over 4feet of snow on the ground, some has melted, the area has seen over a foot in the last 4 days though. But in short, yes more snow this year than in the last few.

It's been in the 70s-90s pretty much all winter long in Dallas, with no rain and no snow. Temperatures way above average and precipitation well below average. Now that spring is here, we're having more than our fair share of rain today (11+ inches so far, or 29 cm, in the past 24 hours, plus another 3 inches yesterday).

That's how it's been here in West Texas, too (50's-70's). We normally have a couple of snow events each season with accumulations of about 3", but we had no snow at all this year.

Hope that helps answer your question TACAA320. Interesting picture you sent the link for, too.

It's more than obvious that the climate is changing all over the world.

My biggest concocern in this regard is not "El Niño" but the global warming.

Domenici Says No Global Warming Legislation This Session
Congress Daily PM (subscription only), March 6, 2006
Senate Energy and Natural Resources Chairman Domenici said today climate change legislation will not come out of his committee this year. Domenici said he and Energy and Natural Resources ranking member Jeff Bingaman, D-N.M., are negotiating a bill that would require reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, but the two are "nowhere close to a way to do that," he said, adding, "Frankly, I don't know how to write it, and I don't think anybody does." Lawmakers are divided over whether a climate change bill should include regulation of carbon dioxide, along with other pollutants. The committee will hold a climate change forum April 4 to hear experts on the issue, but it is not likely to result in legislation. "There will be no climate change legislation coming out of my committee this year," Domenici told reporters.

Domenici also said he does not think Congress will pass legislation this year intended to expedite a nuclear waste repository at Nevada's Yucca Mountain. The Energy Department is expected to present Congress with a legislative package designed to get the stalled project moving, but the release of this plan has been delayed. Domenici said the committee could move a bill to reduce domestic oil consumption. The Energy and Natural Resources Committee today held the first of three hearings on energy independence and security, which are designed to identify "five or six or seven major ideas that would truly be helpful" in the next couple of years and could possibly be rolled into energy legislation this year, Domenici said. "We haven't decided yet. At this point we do not have a bill planned," he said. Domenici said he was surprised that all four witnesses at today's hearing agreed that research is needed to promote the development of ethanol from agricultural waste, or cellulosic ethanol. The witnesses agreed "this was the quickest way to convert [from] using gasoline used from crude oil" to alternative sources, Domenici said. He said new legislation is not needed to promote cellulosic ethanol, just research funding."

It's been a pretty mild winter in Southern Ontario. I can't say as though I'm complaining, I don't think that it's all that unusual, although people will say that it's from global warming, I don't know or care either way. If it is global warming, well, at least I don't have to shovel the drive everyday.

No snow here in North Carolina, although this was my first winter here in 8 years.

Up in NY, however, a different story. I lived in KART (an hour north of Syracuse) for 3 years, and the region east of Lake Ontario arguably has the worst winters of any place east of the rockies.

Montague, NY, just to the south of where I lived, seem to have it the worst. A few years ago in 24 hours they picked up 77 inches (195 cm) of snow, the largest one-day snowfall amount ever recorded anywhere in the US. However, because four measurements were taken that day instead of three (the maximum allowed by the NWS), that record still can't officially be claimed by Montague.

Also, in 2001, in one storm (the infamous "Bald Eagle" storm) Montague picked up 127 inches (322 cm). Real amazing stuff, I still have pictures in my album of that event!

Yea, your winters suck. Cold enough to be a nuisance, but also damp which makes it worse. And dreary, rainy chilly wind. Bah!

It's colder in MDZ, below freezing and stuff quite a few times, but it's a bit sunnier, and yea it's snows a few times and in the higher elevations a lot!
Last winter there was so much snow Las Leñas decided to open thru the summer! They had that much snow thru the middle of summer.

Where I live (Victoria BC), it has been a very mild winter. However, due to how much precipitation we have had, the ski mountain up-island has had a huge amount of snow. Around 500cms on average throughout the second half of winter, and still now.
