The Show Must Go On

Into every life, now and then, a little rain must fall. Sometimes it pours. The trick is to get out your towel, dry yourself off and ... go have a party. You can’t stop bad things from happening. All you can do is suck it up and laugh in the face of adversity. New Orleans is doing just that ... at least as best that city can at the moment. The parades have been going on all last week and Fat Tuesday is coming up tomorrow. Beads and boudin. Bourbon and gumbo. Now that’s how you bring a city back to life ... not with a wake and a funeral but with a celebration of life ...

New Orleanians Find Something to Celebrate
February 27, 2006, 11:12 AM EST

NEW ORLEANS (AP)

Tourists and locals stood side-by-side—in some spots 6 to 8 feet deep—as two of the Carnival season’s biggest and glitziest parades rolled through a city struggling to reclaim some of its famous fun. “It’s very special,” said Barbara Sykes, who flew in from Irving, Texas, where she’s been living since Hurricane Katrina. “It’s part of my heart, my blood.”

The prelude to Mardi Gras—or Fat Tuesday—brought party-hungry crowds to New Orleans’ traditional parade route Sunday, nearly six months after Katrina flooded 80 percent of the city and dispersed more than two-thirds of the population.

Mardi Gras “is just a symbol of the fact that New Orleans is going to come back,” said Stephanie Hall, 28, a city resident. “New Orleans has always done what it wants to do and it’s gonna come back whether the country wants it to or not.”

A threat of thunderstorms Saturday prompted a one day delay of the Krewe of Endymion’s parade, which followed the Krewe of Bacchus through the Uptown neighborhood on Sunday night. Three smaller parades were held in the afternoon.

Lori Caswell, 34, of Chesapeake, Va., said this is her first time participating in the festivities and she was surprised by the number of people involved. “It’s a blast,” she yelled, above the screams of children seeking beads. “It’s like no other fun I’ve ever had.”

Caswell’s friend, Yvette Hairston, said she was glad the parades drew so many people back to her hometown because it’s a sign that people are putting money back into the economy.

“It’s a sign there’s life here,” she said. “It’s a rebirth.”

Thousands in Northeast Still Without Power
February 19, 2006, 6:59 AM EST
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP)

A deep freeze stretched from Arkansas to New York as workers tried to restore power to 200,000 homes and businesses left dark by fierce winds that were also blamed in four deaths. The storm carried a wave of bitterly cold air as it swept out of the Midwest, prompting temperatures in western New York to plunge from 60 degrees to below freezing within hours.

Winds of 10 to 15 miles per hour Sunday made the temperature feel like it was below zero, said National Weather Service meteorologist Steve McLaughlin. Parts of Arkansas had 5.5 inches of snow Saturday and freezing temperatures extended across the state. Hayward, Wis., had a Saturday morning low of 26 below zero, and daytime highs in the Upper Midwest reached only the single digits.

On Friday, wind of more than 60 mph buffeted the Rochester area and a 77-mph gust was recorded at the city’s airport, the weather service said. The frigid temperatures forced officials in Madison, Wis., which had a high 3 degrees on Saturday, to cancel the “Polar Plunge” into a lake, a fundraiser for the Special Olympics. “We first really realized it was a problem when we cut the hole this morning and it immediately skimmed over with ice,” Cheryl Balazs of the Special Olympics told WKOW-TV.

Utility officials in New York said crews would work through the weekend to restore power to about 85,000 customers, down from at least 328,000 customers who were blacked out Friday. Thousands of customers were also without power in Michigan, New Hampshire, Maine, and Vermont, where the National Weather Service reported a wind gust of 143 mph on Stratton Mountain.

Several states opened shelters, providing havens with light and heat for those without power. “Most people tough it out the first night and then come in the second night,” said Mark Bosma, spokesman for Vermont Emergency Management. The wind toppled many trees, including one in Billerica, Mass., that killed the driver of a pickup.

A falling tree crushed a car outside Rochester, killing a 52-year-old woman, and another killed a state worker in a truck at Saratoga Spa State Park. East of Rochester, a man was killed when his vehicle slammed into a tractor-trailer rig whose driver had stopped to clear storm debris from his windshield. Wind also knocked out a 12th-floor window in a high-rise office building in Syracuse, and falling debris barely missed passers-by, police said.

Six More Weeks

The groundhog saw his shadow. You know what that means? Six more weeks of Cindy Sheehan babbling bullshit. Six more weeks of MOOS-lims acting like complete jerks. Six more weeks of Democrats whining and complaining. Six more weeks of madness. All because of that damned furry pig. Who is starting to really piss me off. Can’t we just serve Phil up with some nice fava beans and be done with it ... ?

imageimagePunxsutawney Groundhog Sees His Shadow
Feb 2, 8:52 AM (ET)
PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. (AP)

Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, but it was hard to find a complainer in the crowd on Gobbler’s Knob, where the morning temperature was well above freezing and Thursday’s high was expected to hit 48 degrees. There were a few boos at the groundhog’s prediction of six more weeks of winter, but most of the hundreds of revelers instead turned the event into an impromptu Pittsburgh Steelers rally.

Fans in football jerseys sang “Here we go Steelers,” and members of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club’s Inner Circle - the top-hat- and tuxedo-wearing businessmen responsible for carrying on the groundhog tradition each year - threw black and gold Steelers “Terrible Towels” as they waited to rouse Phil from his burrow.

The furry forecaster may be popular, but the Pittsburgh Steelers are playing in the Super Bowl on Sunday. “It’s been really wonderful. This is just a ball. I’m having so much fun,” said Nancy Durr, who came from Paxton, Neb., to the small western Pennsylvania town about 65 miles north of Pittsburgh to celebrate her 50th birthday.

She had been outside awaiting Phil’s arrival since about 2:15 a.m., a rub-on Punxsutawney Phil tattoo on each cheek. Others latched on to the Phil frenzy for a publicity boost - for just about anything, from global warming to the lottery. The National Environmental Trust said it’s groundhog-suit-wearing human “will ignore his shadow and will instead rely on global warming evidence to forecast an early spring.” The American Physiological Society was offering experts to discuss “What Punxsutawney Phil can teach us about surviving massive blood loss, preventing muscle atrophy, and more.”

Global Warming Strikes Again

Snowstorm Closes Hawaii Volcano To Tourists

MAUNA KEA, Hawaii -- Officials closed the summit of Hawaii’s Mauna Kea volcano to the public after a snowstorm shut down access for the first time this winter season.

Clouds blanketed Hawaii’s tallest peak this weekend. A blanket of snow forced everyone to evacuate, including park rangers”

We’ve got to make sure and keep everybody healthy and safe on the summit. So, I’m closing it,” Mauna Kea ranger Kimo Pihana said.

The heavy snowfall was a rare sight, even for those who are up there almost every day.

“The snow began to accumulate very quickly and we had to evacuate to prevent being trapped on the summit,” telescope operator Paul Sears said.

A California family was at the summit when the snow started falling, before the road was shut down.

“Did you ever think you’d see snow in Hawaii?” a reporter asked.

“Wasn’t really expecting to see snow in Hawaii,” said Bob Nyman.

“So it’s a nice treat on your vacation?” the reporter asked.

“Oh absolutely. It was great,” Nyman said.

For visitors who didn’t have timing on their side, the trek ended at the 9,000-foot mark where the road was closed.

Stormy Weather

Take a look at the picture below. What you see is a huge twenty foot storm surge during Hurricane Katrina. Or is it? You know how rumors get started, don’t you? Someone tells somebody else something and they tell someone else and so on. With each telling the story gets altered and sometimes magnified. This picture has been circulating around the internet for months and has been rumored to have been taken at Bay St. Louis, Mississippi before that city was smashed by the hurricane. It has also been rumored to have been taken at a number of other places in Louisiana and Mississippi to demonstrate the devastation of Katrina.

I have received this picture from several people lately with varying stories of where it happened. This is one of the problems with the internet. In some cases, more misinformation is spread than information. With all the blogs out there nowadays, it is easy to see why so much is exaggerated and why so many people seem to be totally barking mad. And that’s just in the “civilized” countries. Imagine the trouble that is caused when uneducated, impressionable people like your typical Middle Eastern goober reads misinformation on the internet. Maybe the internet isn’t such a good thing after all if it causes Ahab The Arab to go blow himself up because of some Arab web site’s lies and distortions of the truth.

Always remember, the truth is where you find it but it may not always be 100% true. It may just seem to be true because you want it to be true. Keep that in mind as you surf the blogs today and every day. Or, as we say here in Missouri .... show me. As for this picture, it’s true but not quite what it seems. Go here for the full story. Credit Snopes for researching this one.

Glowball Warming Hits India

This glowball warming thing is starting to get out of hand. India is recording the lowest temperatures in seventy years. What next? Snow in Jamaica? That should be a big help to their Olympic bobsled team ...

Deaths Due to Northern Indian Cold Snap Rise to 160

A bitter cold spell in northern India has claimed six more lives to take the countrywide toll to 160, officials said, as doctors warn that survivors of a Japanese encephalitis outbreak are particularly at risk. The new deaths were reported from India’s most populous Uttar Pradesh state where 124 people—mostly homeless—have died due to the freezing conditions, according to a tally based on figures released by police in the provincial capital Lucknow.

The bitter cold has been unrelenting in other parts of northern India as well. “Many parts of Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh continue to be in the grip of a cold wave to severe cold wave conditions. They have extended eastwards into parts of Bihar,” the weather office in New Delhi said Tuesday. Srinagar, capital of Indian Kashmir, recorded minus three degrees Celsius (26.6 degrees Fahrenheit) Tuesday, while the northern Sikh pilgrimage city of Amritsar recorded zero degrees Celsius (32 degrees Fahrenheit).

A doctor in Uri, one of the towns in Indian Kashmir worst hit by a devastating earthquake three months ago, warned that survivors living in makeshift shelters are showing signs of hypothermia and frostbite. New Delhi recorded its lowest temperature in 70 years on Sunday with the mercury at 0.2 degrees Celsius (32.36 Fahrenheit).

The mercury fluctuated between minus four degrees Celsius and two degrees Celsius in other parts of northern India this week, said a meteorological department official in New Delhi. The bitter cold forced authorities to shut primary schools for a few days across the region.

Glowball Warming, Dixie Edition

How long must this go on before you people wake up and do something about it? Events like this are becoming more and more commonplace in recent years! Now, it’s snowing in Dixie and winter doesn’t officially begin until next week! Are you going to wait until Mexico City has ice storms in June before you respond to this man-made disaster?

Buy more SUV’s NOW! Burn more coal! Chop down trees! Get off your complacent rear-ends now before it’s too late! The sky is falling! The end times are near! Scientific facts** prove that glowball warming is a myth! We’re entering a new Ice Age! The proof is right before your very eyes! Save the planet now before the last watermelons disappear from Dixie!

imageimageOne Dead, 450,000 in Dark After Icy Storm
December 16, 2005, 7:30 AM EST
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP)

A blast of freezing rain across Georgia and the Carolinas on Thursday closed schools, snarled traffic and caused power outages to more than 450,000 customers. At least one death was blamed on the storm when an ice-laden tree crashed through a man’s house. “Ice is our greatest nemesis, much worse than snow,” said Lucinda Trew, spokeswoman for Duke Power, the main provider of electricity in the hardest-hit parts of the Carolinas.

The widespread outages were caused by the ice that formed on tree limbs and fell onto power lines. In Kannapolis, N.C., just north of Charlotte, N.C., authorities say the weight of that ice buckled a 100-foot-tall tree that crushed 58-year-old David Ralph Jones while reclined on a couch in his living room. While electricity was quickly restored to some, outages by early evening still totaled 260,000 in South Carolina’s upstate, about 170,000 in North Carolina, 55,000 in northeast Georgia and 34,700 in the Atlanta area.

“The trees and power lines are down everywhere on the road. It’s just dangerous to be out,” said Rebecca Neal, who was using blankets to keep warm in her powerless Greenville home and thinking about finding a hotel for the night. Earlier in the day, Neal had gone to her job at a public relations firm, only to find that her office didn’t have power either. School systems canceled or cut short classes across north Georgia, the affected parts of the Carolinas and into western stretches of Virginia.

Mountains of North Carolina and Virginia were being hit with a hazardous mix of snow and sleet. “Snow we can plow. Ice we can’t,” said Virginia Department of Transportation spokesman Chuck Lionberger. The wintry mix was blamed for a school bus accident in Cherokee County, on the northern end of suburban Atlanta. The driver swerved to avoid a large tree branch that had fallen across the road, forcing the vehicle’s rear tires to slide off the road. None of the 23 students aboard the bus was injured.

The National Weather Service said the freezing rain was expected to continue in the region through Thursday evening and overnight temperatures were forecast to dip into the 20s. Ice accumulations were expected to be as much as three-quarters of an inch, which could lead to more snapped limbs and power lines. Duke Power’s Trew said there was no timetable when power would be restored but a warming trend Friday would help, with 7,500 workers being dispatched to the task.

“Temperatures are slowly warming, degree by degree, so the melting is under way after a very significant ice storm,” said Doug Outlaw of the National Weather Service office at the Greenville-Spartanburg Airport.

** - Scientifically speaking, if it’s snowing in South Carolina this early in December then “warming” is the last word I’d use.

Heat Wave

The only problem I have with this story is that I sit here in my office and gaze out the window at the hot sun beating down mercilessly on this dusty midwest town. I wonder how much cooler it would be if those nasty man-made chlorofluorocarbon gasses and SUV emissions hadn’t messed up the atmosphere so badly that we are now roasting in our own juices here.

It is a stifling 20ºF outside right now and the air conditioner is going full blast. I need to go to the store but I’m afraid I don’t have enough sunscreen to protect me. Don’t you people get it? There must be, I don’t know, about 4-5 inches of snow on the ground and more coming down steadily in almost whiteout conditions here in St. Louis! This is madness! I can’t take any more of this global warming heat wave ....

imageimageScientists: Greenland Glaciers Retreating
SAN FRANCISCO (MYWAY NEWS)

Two of Greenland’s largest glaciers are retreating at an alarming pace, most likely because of climate warming, scientists said Wednesday. One of the glaciers, Kangerdlugssuaq, is currently moving about 9 miles a year compared to 3 miles a year in 2001, said Gordon Hamilton of the University of Maine’s Climate Change Institute.

The other glacier, Helheim, is retreating at about 7 miles a year - up from 4 miles a year during the same period. “It’s quite a staggering rate of increase,” Hamilton said at the American Geophysical Union annual meeting.

Glaciers play a major role in discharging water into oceans. Sea levels have swelled globally an estimated 4 inches to 8 inches during the past century due to melting glaciers and polar ice - enough to cause some places to be awash at high tide or during severe storms.

Melting of Greenland ice and calving of icebergs from glaciers is responsible for about 7 percent of the annual rise in global sea level. Global warming is frequently blamed for retreating glaciers around the world. The rapid retreat of Greenland glaciers suggest that climate change is a factor, Hamilton said.

Meanwhile, one of the fastest melting glaciers in North America has reached the halfway point of disintegration and will continue retreat for another two decades.

Here is what the view outside my apartment looks like right now. Yep! The Winter Solstice is two weeks away and the worst is yet to come. Lows for tonight are predicted to be around 9ºF (wind chill of -18ºF). Are we having sunburn fun yet? Break out the Coopertone! Let’s have a pool party! Yay!

Global Warming, Part DVI

THE SKY IS FALLING! THE SKY IS FALLING! THE SKY IS FALLING! We already know Europe is in the middle of one of the worst deep-freeze spells in the last fifty years and it isn’t even December yet. Look what else is happening! Now America is getting a blast of winter cold with a huge snowstorm dumping snow and ice all over the Midwest. Did I mention that it isn’t even December yet?

Hasn’t anyone figured out yet that this crap has been going on for millions of years? The Earth goes through warming and cooling cycles and the Sun does too. The climate responds to all of this and more. There is the influence of the Moon and shifting plate tectonics and atmospheric changes and .... well, you get the picture. Any one of these simply dwarf puny man’s input into the system. Add them all together and the contributions of the human race are almost insignificant by comparison.

So will someone please tell Al Gore and his enviro-whacko buddies to just sit down and STFU, please? It seems a lot of people are buying into this global warming crap because everyone seemed surprised when this winter storm hit yesterday. Wake up people! Your weatherman is only guessing and the enviro-whackos are just flat out making this s**t up as they go along ....

imageimageBlizzards Wreak Havoc Across Plains
DENVER (AP)

The first big snowstorm of the season closed hundreds of miles of major highways across the Plains states Monday, part of a treacherous system that also sent tornadoes ripping through Arkansas and Kansas. Six-foot drifts were common in eastern Colorado, western Kansas and Nebraska, the National Weather Service said. Wind up to 60 mph piled drifts 3 feet high in Pierre, S.D., where state government offices were closed. Snow fell as far south as the Texas Panhandle.

Four highway deaths were blamed on the weather. Most of a stretch of more than 330 miles of Interstate 70 was closed Monday because of poor visibility in blowing snow from the Denver area east to Russell, Kan., stranding travelers headed home after Thanksgiving. One accident involved up to 25 cars Sunday.

“We’ll just go when it’s safe. We have a four-wheel drive vehicle but that doesn’t make you any safer in this,” said Julie Ward of Wichita, Kan., who got one of the last rooms available at the Tyme Square Inn in Limon, Colo. More than 300 stranded travelers were put up for the night in Goodland, Kan., at a National Guard Armory, a church and a field house. Others slept on pews at the First Baptist Church in Limon, Colo.

“You can’t even see,” said Bill Kanitig of the Sherman County, Kan., sheriff’s office. “The highway is snowpacked, and it’s slick and everybody’s sliding off.” The South Dakota Highway Patrol shut down a 175-mile stretch of I-90 on Monday from Kadoka to Mitchell. In central Nebraska, a 60-mile stretch of I-80 was closed Monday from North Platte east to Lexington. Numerous other highways were closed across the Plains. The Minnesota State Patrol urged people not to travel in the northwestern part of the state, and schools in large parts of western Minnesota were closed.

The National Weather Service posted blizzard warnings and winter storm warnings for parts of Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota and Minnesota.

Is It Safe Yet?

Just because you live in the Midwest doesn’t mean you’re safe from the wrath of Mother nature and hurricane force winds. Au contraire, mon ami! A hurricane is like a nuclear bomb going off in your neighborhood while a tornado is more like a hidden sniper at 4,000 yards - who hates trailer parks and ... in some cases, emergency management offices ...

Funnel Clouds Spotted In Four States
Storms rage across the nation’s midsection
PARIS, Tenn. (CNN)

Severe thunderstorms rolled across the nation’s midsection late Tuesday, producing funnel clouds that tore off roofs and destroyed or damaged buildings in at least four states. Tornado touchdowns were spotted in 12 counties in western and central Tennessee, with the worst damage apparently occurring in Henry County, about 90 miles west of Nashville.

“Numerous homes there were damaged, some completely destroyed,” said Faye Scott, spokeswoman for the Henry County Sheriff’s Department. “It’s major destruction.” Funnel clouds were also sighted in Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky, but it was unclear how many remained aloft or touched the ground. There were no immediate reports of serious injuries.

A tornado made a direct hit on Henry County’s emergency management center, forcing authorities to relocate to another building to handle the disaster, County Mayor Brent Greer said.

Trailer Parks Trashed In Indiana

Why do people in the Midwest live in mobile homes? Surely they realize by now that God really hates trailer parks ...?

imageimageTornado Kills 22 In Indiana
EVANSVILLE, Indiana (CNN)

At least one tornado ripped through southern Indiana near Evansville before dawn Sunday, killing at least 22 people and injuring about 230 in the deadliest day of twisters in more than seven years. Related storms also caused extensive damage and killed horses at a Kentucky race track as a line of severe thunderstorms crossed the area.

Rescuers searched for survivors past nightfall amid the ruins of numerous mobile homes in Evansville, where witnesses said several trailers had been picked up by the winds and tossed into a nearby lake. Adam Groupey, deputy director of emergency management for Evansville and Vanderburgh County, said the tornado touched down about 2 a.m. in Henderson County, Kentucky, then crossed the Ohio River and hit an Evansville mobile home park before moving into Warrick County.

One resident of the trailer park told WFIE of Evansville she saw a tornado pick up a car with members of her family in it and toss the vehicle into a tree. Brandi Crawley said no one was seriously injured. “The damage is very, very extensive,” said Chad Bennett, an assistant fire chief in Newburgh, in Warrick County. He said the hardest hit area of Newburgh was just north of the city limits.

He described the “scope of the damage” as “very shocking.” “There was a whole apartment complex that lost all of the top floors of the units and then some of the second floors,” Bennett told CNN. “I talked to people who were in the streets crying.” Bennett estimated the damage path was about 3/4 of a mile wide and 20 miles long.
