The Snow Apocalypse of 2018!!!

See the source image

To hear the TV and radio noozies tell it, today’s snowstorm is just too awful, too fraught with doom and disaster, to bear thinking of–which doesn’t stop them obsessing about it.

So, yeah, just now, here in Noo Joisey, it’s terribly cold and snowing very hard–as it has done many times before, and will do many times again. It means a bit of hardship, but it won’t last.

I look out my bathroom window, where there’s a maple tree whose branches almost touch the screen. Despite the nasty cold snap we’ve been in, the tips of those branches already bear hard, tight little buds–this year’s leaves. In due time, according to the pattern ordained by our Creator, the buds will fatten, open up, and be green leaves.

We have God’s promise: While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease. (Genesis 8:22)

But I don’t suppose too many noozies know that anymore.

  1. I’m pretty sure I’m the one responsible. Last summer, when it was good and hot (like it has always been here) I ran my A/C and forced this calamity on the east coast. 🙂

    1. We’ve had more than our share of single digits and minus zero temperatures to go along with the fierce winds. Yuck!

    2. Here in central Ohio, we’re considering ourselves blessed if the temperature gets as high as the double digits. We’d consider a temperature of 30 to be the onset of a global warming meltdown.

      Well, actually, they’re now predicting a couple of highs around 30 for next week. But meanwhile, we’re taking zero as our baseline. I was out this morning in a subzero wind chill. I didn’t die. (Or maybe I did and this is my astral projection typing away at the keyboard — alongside UnKnowable’s purple cabbage.) 🙂

    3. Bombogenesis. Crazy term. I have no idea who came up with it but it certainly isn’t the most scientific of names. In fact, it’s hilarious!

    1. Because they use it improperly, out of context and without understanding. Reporting on aviation is a perfect example. They always zero in on something that sounds sensational, but is insignificant.

      In the late ’80s, there was a very cold spell of weather and a Northwest Airlines flight leaving Minneapolis couldn’t retract its landing gear. It was probably just packed with ice, no big thing, but the pilot came back and landed. The local news channel in Minneapolis went out to the airport and interviewed “survivors” of this non event. No one was in any danger at any time. They probably put the plane in a hangar and swung the gear a few times just to be safe, but it was hardly a big deal and the captain handled it perfectly. Nonetheless, the nooze media wasn’t about to let this out of their grasp without making all sorts of noise.
