Houston has earliest snowfall - ever

Houston has earliest snowfall - ever

There are 7 comments on the www.chron.com story from Dec 4, 2009, titled Houston has earliest snowfall - ever. In it, www.chron.com reports that:

First the snow, now the chill. A steady snowfall, the earliest in Houston's history, continues this afternoon after flakes began falling shortly after dawn this morning. Meanwhile, temperatures have fallen throughout the day and as of 1 p.m. were sitting at 33 degrees at Bush Intercontinental Airport. Factor in the wind and it felt like 24 degrees.

A freeze warning has been issued for more than 20 Texas counties, including the coastal counties of Chambers, Galveston, Brazoria, Matagorda and Jackson, extending northward through Harris, Montgomery, Fort Bend, Wharton and Liberty counties, then stretching as far northwest as the cities of Bryan and College Station and as far northeast as Trinity and Polk counties.

There's a nearly 100 percent chance of precipitation this afternoon, and that almost certainly will be snow because of the air temperature.

Old "proof " of local & wider cooling, which toxic topix AGW denier liar whiners use to refute AGW. However, in previous days to the southern U.S. cold spell, AGW enhanced warm fronts forced themselves into the High Arctic, raising temperatures 5degC & more above average, over millions of square kilometers around the North Pole. Much excess AGW energy forced Arctic cold to the southern U.S. to cause the snow falls.

Nobody refutes AGW anymore since it has been refuted. In fact, years ago it kind of morphed into a self-refuting conceptual-slapstick comedy of errors, with CO2 magically creating energy, with heat deciding to move from the "lower atmosphere" to the 'bottom of the ocean," with the invention of silly terminology, e.g. "climate forcing," "atmospheric feedback loops," "acceleration of the rate of climate change," and only the most outrageous humor that Global Warming grant money can buy.

Help me make sure I get this right. There were warm FRONTS, which are like little rugby demons that, what? form a scrum? Anyway, they FORCED themselves into the High Arctic and...wait. Hold on a second. Why? What was/is their motivation? Why would a warm front force its way anywhere. Don't warm fronts like it wherever they happen to be? Do AGW-enhanced warm fronts pull out tourism pamphlets and maps and decide on where they want to visit? Why the High Arctic?

Anyway, so these AGW-enhanced warm fronts get to the North Pole and raise the temperature 5degC? How do you know this? The High Arctic is not peppered with thermometers. We went over this repeatedly this past winter. The high Arctic simply did not see any warm fronts. Your reports of warmer temperatures were simply fabrications of your wishful thinking and your bogus reporting, as confirmed by our friendly High Arctic buoy. Most of this past winter the Arctic was colder than normal.

Also, you mentioni AGW "energy." If the Arctic is colder than normal, what form is this excess ENERGY assuming? How does this energy "force" cold air to move, exactly? How did this energy get snow to drop on Houston but not all along the path from the Arctic to Houston?

Winnipeg, Manitoba in early December 2009 was 15degF & precipitating.

Of course, Arctic outbreaks have been historic.
http://www.srh.noaa.gov/images/ewx/wxevent/wi...

Sometimes, Arctic slams show late date record events, as far south as Mexico & Central America. At other times, Arctic weather penetrates to southern China, India, Iran, Iraq, & N.Africa......all showing excess AGW energy able to force cold nearly to half a world away from its source.

It is good that old sick silly sleepy sleazy slimy stupid steenkin' filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig toxic topix AGW denier liar whiners point out these events & at other times, they question the AGW energies to do such. It is good that old sick silly sleepy sleazy slimy stupid steenkin' filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig toxic topix AGW denier liar whiners are confused, which shows their lack of education in science chemistry astronomy physics algebra & pre-calc even as early as in their poorly (or non-) earned hi skule DEE-plooomaas.
