  1. And I've been thinking more and more about what you wrote a while back regarding Gaia maybe keeping NOTAM cooler relative to global temps in order to ensure that humans take no action in their last ten hours that could potentially mitigate the worst outcome (not that we have too many options at this point even if every one of us awakens NOW to imminent danger). If IMBY weenies with a hobbyist's literacy in the sciences cannot comprehend how record setting cold Oct-Nov temps over the contiguous 48 could be strongly correlated with a warming planet, then there's no chance that the average Joe in Lubbock can be convinced his frostbite is caused by global warming. Maybe I'm just an old cynic, but that's my take on the eve of 2020.
  2. You're not alone in this sentiment, I used to travel in Japan pretty extensively during the winter and experienced some ludicrous snow-rates and packs, but ALL of the roads (that remain open) are heated so it never looked like winter to me, even when houses had snow to their eves and everyone was topside shoveling like the dickens to keep their roof from collapsing. The "conquest" of nature, in general, hollows me out a little, prys some thing out of my soul.
  3. Yes, seasonal snow forecasts still involve a lot of "dart tossing," as the set of variables that produce a particular snowfall in any single geographic location are simply so many and so spaced out temporally that we're not even sure we know what they all are, never mind whether we're accurately capturing and weighting them in our forecast processes. Weenies don't much like that disclaimer however.
