(The Weather Channel)   Is ten inches of snow in Flagstaff a sure sign of global warming? Will the pot dispensaries still be open in Denver in a blizzard? Will the Plains get all wet like your Mom?

Wow they've been playing this one up like snowpacolypse.  We'll see.
 
2013-03-09 12:42:34 AM  
Um. Ok. I've got a coating of like 1 snow flake deep on my car. It rained some today though, nice rains.

Ten inches of snow in Flagstaff is just called "snow."

If this goes green I will walk to the dispensary in the blizzard and post pics.

This weather couldn't be finer in Denver.  Snow on the weekend instead of a weekday, and back into the 60s by Wednesday.

Sunny and clear n Cleveland as of 7 AM Caturday

Newsflash: It snows in Northern Arizona - Which is at 7,000+ feet. (It also melts fairly fast).

They managed to scare me.  Only because my son was supposed to be driving from Lubbock to Boulder today. He went yesterday evening instead.
 
2013-03-09 07:37:11 AM  
So very disappointed in the storm so far.  3 hours late and barely a dusting so far.  If this storm doesn't kill off some of the homeless and elderly I'm going to have to do it myself.
 
2013-03-09 07:38:06 AM  
Yes. The dispensaries will be open in Denver, Boulder, and Greeley. 'Cause we can.

Working in the hotel industry, I've already had several people extend their stays and come in because of the looming 'storm'.

Least said, they said this was supposed to start at 5 pm YESTERDAY and it's only started snowing....half an hour ago. They're 12 hours behind on this thing.
 
2013-03-09 07:47:24 AM  
We do this every year, I swear.

Subs, Flagstaff is in the high country. It gets more snow per year than Buffalo NY does.

1. Syracuse, NY (housing, pop. 140,658): 115.6 in
2. Clay, NY (housing, pop. 58,836): 115.6 in
3. Anchorage, AK (housing, pop. 278,700): 114.0 in
4. Utica, NY (housing, pop. 59,082): 108.2 in
5. Flagstaff, AZ (housing, pop. 58,213): 100.3 in
6. Coconino, AZ (housing, pop. 74,488): 100.3 in
7. Cheektowaga, NY (housing, pop. 79,988): 93.6 in
8. Amherst, NY (housing, pop. 116,773): 93.6 in
9. Buffalo, NY (housing, pop. 276,059): 93.6 in
10. Niagara Falls, NY (housing, pop. 52,326): 93.6 in

29. Salt Lake City, UT (housing, pop. 178,858): 58.5 in

Denver get 53.8

See? Learned something, didn't you? Don't you feel stupid.

Man I wish I could be at Snowbowl or Sunrise today ...
 
2013-03-09 07:47:38 AM  
This is a temporary reprieve from the drought at best.  Unless it dumps over a foot that'll stick for more than three days, it's just another hum drum winter day.

Yeah, I live in the Colorado high country and the NWS is predicting a whole one to two inches. Hardly name worthy. Just another manifestation of "sell more media" sensationalism. Thanks a lot, The Weather Channel.

Plus, yes, the dispensaries will be open in Denver. I asked last night when I picked up my medicine. Again, there's like 1/2" on the ground, and no wind.

Just the Weather Channel.  The NWS doesn't recognize the names.  They named the storm that hit the east coast earlier this week.  We were forecast to get 10-14 inches of snow.  It rained.  Meh, they shut down the whole D.C. metropolitan area, so what do I care, I got the day off.

I'm just very surprised at how many forecasts they sensationalize and get really wrong.

If you don't believe everything Algore says and immediately give him all of your money for carbon credits, you are a Global Warming Denier.

If you DO believe everything Algore says and promote legislation to make "the rich" give him all their money for carbon credits, you are a proper, thinking progressive.

If you look at the evidence which clearly shows global climate change but question whether human activity has much to do with it, or whether human activity can halt it (especially if a clear day in Shanghai resembles an LA temperature inversion in the '70s and China is exempt from Kyoto-remember?) you are a bigot racist eurocentric whatever and your free speech rights will not be tolerated.
 
2013-03-09 08:29:30 AM  
Just because it's cooler in a specific region than usual doesn't mean global warming is false. Nor if it's warmer than usual. Or if it's actual average outside. Just don't bother judging anything from the climate actually. You have to look at the Data over a period of time, of our choosing. What we have access to. Just look at our Date not theirs.  Anyway, we are the majority and that's how it works in science. Just Farking stop disagreeing with us.


Going to Denver to ski at the end of the month. I hope it global warmings the hell out of Breckenridge before I get there.

Please, please stay off the roads. If you feel you must drive, wait at the side of the road until you see a snowplow and the follow it until it eventually circles back to your house. You can go get milk and bread tomorrow, fatass. Won't hurt you to miss a meal.

It wasn't snowing when I went to bed at 4am. This is 6:30am. Now I go back to bed for the rest of the day.

Agreed. Even though the place I'm living has way too much to shovel (2 car garage, corner lot) and I live to run trails, there's something about a good storm that soothes the soul.

It's started coming down pretty good now (Applewood/Wheat Ridge), but no wind. I need to get to the gym and run treadmills today.

2013-03-09 09:01:06 AM  
Twenty years ago when I was a child, I swear all the grass was covered from November to March. I remember Trick-or-Treating in the snow a few times. Now we get a few inches a few times a year. The snow is even different. It's now tiny little ice crystals that don't pack together, they just blow around like sand. Even just 11 years ago when I started driving, winter was completely different than it has been for the past few years. Of course, on a geological timescale, my observation is meaningless.
 
2013-03-09 09:08:50 AM  
Just starting to sort of in Littleton. Thought when I woke up there'd be a good couple inches, but no... Regardless of how much we get in the Denver area, with a Sunny forecast high 30's tomorrow and 50's on Monday what sticks won't be around long any way.
 
2013-03-09 09:09:38 AM

That made me chuckle. The gods of the ancients are probably throwing thunderbolts toward Atlanta for all this tripe of naming snowstorms. I just loved "Saturn".... I didn't even see a snowflake. Fark you, weather channel
