47 feet of snow!

The snow amounts in California’s Sierra Nevada mountain range this winter are difficult to wrap your head around. In many cases topping 500 inches, they are some of the highest totals in memory.
At the Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows resort, seven feet fell in just the past week. The snow is so high that it buried chairlifts and ski patrol shacks.

The resort has received 565 inches (47 feet) this season, including a 45-year record of 282 inches in January. On Thursday, it announced that its ski area would remain open through July 4. Since 1962, it will mark just the fourth instance of Independence Day skiing (the other years were 1998, 1999, and 2011), according to a resort spokesperson.

John Coleman: How the Global Warming Scare Began

Written by chuck on March 2, 2015 – 4:14 pm -

I have a lot of respect for John Coleman.

A great scientist named Roger Revelle had Al Gore in his class at Harvard and the Global Warming campaign was born. Revelle tried to calm things down years later, but Gore said Revelle was Senile and refused to debate. John Coleman documents the entire story and shows how our tax dollars are perpetuating the Global Warming alarmist campaign even though temperatures have not risen in years and years.

At about the 11:30 mark, Coleman begins a detailed explanation about just how the global warming hoax was started and heated up, including how Al Gore got involved in the movement.

Man struck by lightning at Green Lake, catches it on video

Written by chuck on August 4, 2014 – 5:29 pm -


A man was struck by lightning during a morning thunderstorm that rolled through Seattle’s Green Lake neighborhood on Saturday.

Robb Montejano was outside walking across a field and saw lightning, so he decided to record the storm with his camera phone.

“It was just on the off chance that I can catch the lightning on film,” Montejano said.

In less than a minute after pressing record, Montejano saw more lightning and felt a jolt.

“I just felt this surge of electricity go ‘boom’ through my body,” he said. “The electricity flowing through my body. I can’t describe it. It was amazing.”

Firefighters responded to the emergency call and say Montejano is doing fine, and was just a little shaken up.

Heat is a Lightning a Myth

Written by chuck on July 7, 2013 – 9:03 am -

The old wives’ tale that a hot, humid summer night can generate lightning without a thunderstorm, called “heat lighting,” is exactly that–a meteorological myth.
Heat lightning is just normal lightning from a thunderstorm too far away for the sounds of thunder to be transmitted.

A meteorological myth?

Many people think oppressive heat causes lightning to develop, but according to AccuWeather.com meteorologists, heat lightning is actually a thunderstorm happening a significant distance from an observer, who is only able to see the flash and not hear the thunder.
While heat lightning is really just ordinary lightning from a far away thunderstorm, the typical sound of rumbling thunder is muffled either by long distances or by a blocking, mountainous terrain.

I would never have believed that anyone could live and survive in a place like this. It is some of the most amazing photos I have ever seen. Never dreamed there was someplace like this in this world. It’s in Siberia, Russia.
