Winter Pre-empted Fall in Tri-State Region: More Global Warming?
New York, New Jersey and Connecticutt were blanketed with heavy snowfall yesterday, Oct. 15. “Trick-or-treaters” have not yet made the rounds and snow already covers the sidewalks. Residents say that it’s too early for this kind of winter weather.
Pennsylvania: Penn State posted warnings on the school’s web site, warning of hazardous conditions due to early heavy snowfall, downed power lines, falling tree limbs, dangerous driving and walking conditions, causing them to move their homecoming pep rally indoors. Imagine the homecoming ceremonies in heavy coats and shoes appropriate for snow.
“In what an advisory from the National Weather Service has termed “a remarkable … historic and extremely damaging event,” the wintry mix of rain and snow that was falling earlier today (Oct. 15) has turned to all snow over much of the northern half of central Pennsylvania. Because many trees still have their leaves, this early, wet snowfall has potential to cause serious damage, with the ability to bring down tree limbs and power lines.
“STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — An autumn storm brought snow to parts of Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey, the earliest snow on record in one town.
The National Weather Service says there’s 4.5 inches of snow in State College, Pa., and 2 more inches are possible through Saturday morning. The snow began falling Thursday, breaking the record for the earliest snow since one-tenth of an inch fell on Oct. 18, 1901.
Port Allegany in northwestern Pennsylvania and Perrysburg in western New York both got more than 3 inches of snow, with most areas east of Lake Erie reporting 2 inches or less. Two inches of snow also has fallen in parts of northwest New Jersey.”
This early record-breaking winter and snowfall is occurring all around the world. An Austrian news agency reported the following:
Austria’s provincial capitals are expected to see their earliest snowfalls in history today (Mon) as Arctic air sweeps the country.
Josef Haselhofer from Vienna’s Central Agency for Meteorology and Geodynamics (ZAMG) said today (Mon) Arctic air would probably result in the first snow cover in provincial capitals before 20 October in history and said Innsbruck, Salzburg and St. Pölten were likely to see snow.

Al Gore has not commented on how this proves his global warming theory, but it’s certain he will. Warmers take any weather event at all, hot or cold, and claim it’s the result of climate change. Predictions are that this will be a premature, long and cold winter, so brace yourselves. “It’s going to be a bumpy ride.”
