The annual meeting of the American Meteorological Society is in New Orleans this week. I have found past meetings to be mainly a lovefest of AGW researchers with few, if any, dissenting opinions allowed. I have been a member of the AMS since 1968 (48 years), a TV seal holder since 1971( 45 years) and a CBM Seal holder since 2008. It is an organization dominated by University & government agencies. Need I say more?
After a record warm December, we have reverted to a more normal January cold pattern. Snow cover up north is on the increase and there are signs that a major snow storm could be coming in the 7-10 time frame. Nah, not here, but parts of the Deep south could see some white with the potential for a hard freeze down to the Gulf coast. We have about another 4-6 weeks to worry about those “pipe busting” freezes. Once into March, that higher sun angle should begin to work its magic. Until then, stayed tuned!
