It's Freezing 2016

       Here we go again. Another year another string of the same brutally cold weather and nearly never ending flurries, this time record breaking. The east coast blizzard rampaged over the eastern half of the US  bringing snow down by the tons. Washington DC received an estimated 29 inches of snow on January 22, 2016 beating a record snowfall accumulation set back in 1922. The huge difference is that the snowfall begotten in 1922 occurred over a three day span, January 17-19, 1922 (Simpson, 2016). Washington DC received all of its huge 29 inches of snow on the 22nd of January, 2016. New York City received 18 inches of snow with wind gusting over 50 mph causing Mayor Bill de Blasio to declare a winter weather emergency. Hundreds of residents in Ocean City Maryland lost power in their homes due to storm surge flooding power equipment causing much of the downtown area to go dark. New Jersey received storm and flooding damage almost rivaling Hurricane Sandy. What a day. Just a month ago global warming enthusiasts were barking up and down about the unusually warm month of December the US was receiving and that much of the United States was hardly receiving any snow. "This must be a result of climate change", "global warming", media "experts" kept announcing to their audience, some making sure that they made some kind of snide remark toward their non-believers. It's just funny how one month of warm weather can easily clinch the minds of supposed weather experts. As if in over thousands and thousands of Decembers during the life span of the planet earth the world never ever before experienced a warm winter month. Now all of the sounding the global warming faithful believed that they had their obvious evidence that is irrefutable. But sure enough as they kept talking and internet commentators continued to blab about how educated and smart they are, like a lightning, God sent almost the entire United States East Coast one gigantic snow storm that spanned over a four days. In those four days the storm killed over twenty people. It dumped 12 to 18 inches of snow in Philadelphia and New York (Simpson, 2016), grounded at least 11, 605 flights, flooded communities up and down the east coast forcing roads to close and prompting evacuations. As piles and piles of snows on roads and lawns melted city streets were filling up with water, rivers and lakes were rising higher and higher causing floods near lakes and rivers everywhere. Piles of snow fell through the roofs of many homes and businesses. A lot of buildings and houses were destroyed by floods. Coastal flooding created havoc in states like Delaware. This was not a typical storm. Obviously the mentioning of global warming was announced too soon. But as the stubborn Liberal media shows, it will not back off its insistence that the earth is getting warmer caused by human misdeeds, regardless of how cold it gets here around the world, no matter how many world breaking snowfalls countries around planet receive. These so called educated folks are on a stubborn mission. One can say they are stubborn because almost always when one challenges them with these real world weather events their replies involves the person being "ignorant", "uneducated", or some other word relating to the unbeliever not being intelligent. As if one has to believe every, single word the global warming faithful utters in order to be smart. Hmm, who do they believe they are?
       Well, some people still desire proof. Because someone graduated from Harvard and has a phd does not automatically mean that if he says a hippo can run faster than a deer then he must be right. And if an individual demands proof that this person show him how this hippo can run faster than a deer, does not make the person ignorant or dumb. Actually, it makes him pretty smart.
