Prescott is 5400 feet and in an average year will get 20-25 inches of snow, although it will often soon melt. #1 may not need a blower, but if he kept a shovel, might come in handy in Prescott.

Beats the heck out of 15 feet in Truckee! We used shovels to cut slots from the windows upward to the surface.

Global warming puts the climate on steroids, there will be more cold and more heat, more precip and more drought.



As my neighbor in Truckee said to another neighbor as he was snoblowing his 200 foot driveway, "do you want to be doing this when you are 70?"

Neighbor #1 bought several properties in Prescott AZ he goes to one of them during winter, Neighbor #2 is still snoblowing.

We had 3/4 of a mile to plow to the county road, and we are now on the Central Coast, where none of this precip needs plowing.
While I agree with you, I think this years weather can be attributed at least in part to the volcano that irrupted for what 15 straight days in Iceland.

Volcanoes have a way of disrupting the climate as the ash is really good at blocking the suns energy.

You could easily be right. Not every weather or climate fluctuation is a result of warmer oceans, but, warmer oceans will cause greater fluctuations in weather and climate.

Consider the short term effect of blocked sun's energy by volcanic ash, cooler atmosphere and possibly cooler polar region, feed the warmer ocean into that equation.

Kinda like your bathroom, the warmer your shower water, the greater the condensation on the mirror, now, chill the air in the bathroom, and you have greater condensation.

Storms are just condensation on a grand scale.

There could be waterspouts in our area tomorrow morning around 4am.

Strongest storm yet could bring flooding, tornadoes, hail and high winds to L.A. area | L.A. NOW | Los Angeles Times

"Wednesday’s storm will be more energetic than the previous systems because it will result from the collision of a cool area of low pressure moving south from Seattle to Southern California and warmer, moist air from the western Pacific Ocean, beyond the International Date Line."

It was very nice to have a dry day, I even saw some sort of blue in the sky, don't know what it could have been I took the KLR out to get some fresh air and see what has happened around here. A couple of small creeks that are a trickle or dry through the summer had come up 6 feet or more, they are back down to just a couple of feet now.

I wonder if weather happened in the 1800s. Probably not.

I don't think it was invented until later!

Maybe weather was invented, but definitely not climate change, glacial and interglacial cycles...
