A poem for the Holiday Blizzard of 2006

KUSA - This poem was sent to us by 9NEWS.com user Lauren Rennells.



'Twas four days until Christmas

And all through the front range

Airports were shut down

And driving was a major pain



The children were home

School was not a care

And hopes of getting holiday shopping done

Is neither here nor there



The people were nestled

All snug at home

Only necessary employees

Are expected to roam



And Midnight (my cat)

Passed out on my lap

Has settled in for

A two day blizzard nap



With pictures of my lawn

covered more and more

The shrubs disappear

Under the snow galore



I shoveled the walkway

Every other hour

Only to find it covered again

Making me feel power(less)



Network television

has canceled all its shows

So the news can cover

How much it snows



More Coverage! More News!

All in HD!

You're out of luck!

Today no Judge Judy!



6-10 inches

I highly doubt it

The ruler in my lawn

is well above that



And as I clean my house

Watching snow cover the lands

I realize I have

way too much time on my hands



Happy Holidays!

What are the stages of grieving?
1. anger
2. denial
3. bargaining
4. sadness
5. acceptance

Dude, we are just in stage 2 at this point. If nothing is on the progs come January 15th, we enter stage 3. Statements such as "All I want is one 6"+ snowstorm will be commonplace.
We enter stage 4 of February 1st with posts such as "Global warming has shattered all of our winter dreams for the rest of our lives" and "Man, I'm already 40 and I only have 30-40 more years until I die. I may never see snow again."
February 15th, we begin to stage 5. SEVERE WEATHER SEASON IS LESS THAN A MONTH AWAY!! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/drunk.gif)

[color=red]The theme song for Winter 2006-07, by Fullmug
http://www.easternus...howtopic=118618

[b]To the tune of 'American Pie'. With all due appologies to Don McLean.

A long long time ago . . .
I can still remember
How snowstorms use to make me smile
And I didn’t consider it a boast
To forecast HECS for the whole east coast.
And maybe we’d be happy for a while

But December hasn’t made me shiver.
And not one model will deliver
And sign of cold
This damn blow torch has got old

I don’t know if I should cry
or move right on to suicide
but something turned empty deep inside
The day that winter died

So oh oh I miss my snow
Took my computer to the Euro
But its on crack like a ho
And Chuck and KA were drinking whiskey and rye
Singing we told you winter was gonna die
We told you winter was gonna die

Did you write the Kocin tome
When snow filled your yard and burried your home
If Henry at Accuwx tells you so
Do you believe in the 50/50 low
That holds the cold and wont let go
And can you teach the Pacific jet to go real slow

Now HM knows the weenies have grown tired of him
From the crap they say in their PM’s
He’s clean and off the smack
But they might make him go back

I was a lonely weenie and I’d done been tagged
The mods at eastern said I was a nag
But they can put me in a bag
Now that the winter’s died

I started singing
oh oh I miss my snow
Took my computer to the Euro
But its on crack like a ho
And Chuck and KA were drinking whiskey and rye
Singing we told you winter was gonna die
We told you winter was gonna die

Been ten years since the Bliz of 96
and weenie nation needs a fix
storms like there used to be
When Kocin went on TWC
And out in the storm went Jim Cantore
And they spoke right to you and me

But now Kocin has been let go
And they cover storm stories instead of snow
The old days were adjourned
Doubt they’ll ever return
DT decided he had to go
Richmond’s too warm for Midlo to make snow
And Ji canceled winther thru two oh two oh
The day that Winter died.

I started singing
oh oh I miss my snow
Took my computer to the Euro
But its on crack like a ho
And Chuck and KA were drinking whiskey and rye
Singing we told you winter was gonna die
We told you winter was gonna die

Helter skelter in a blowtorch swelter.
Chuck updates from inside a fallout shelter,
Eight degrees above normal and climbing fast.
Jerry’s squirrels grew lean in the tall grass.
His Canadian snow maps relics of the past
While the whole damn globe was warming fast.

Larry Cosgrove sent his best regards
And an inch of ice for your front yard.
We put on skates and hoped to dance
Oh, but we never got the chance!
Cause Tipster said it wasn’t so
At least that’s what I think, its hard to know.
But the cold didn’t stay in place
And no tears froze on Raliegh’s face

I started singing
oh oh I miss my snow
Took my computer to the Euro
But its on crack like a ho
And Chuck and KA were drinking whiskey and rye
Singing we told you winter was gonna die
We told you winter was gonna die

Oh, and there we were in the funeral room,
weenie nation deep in gloom
With no cold air to find again.
So come on: Jack O be nasty, Jack O be bad!
The warmnistas stole the fun we coulda had
Cause fire is the devil’s only friend.

So JB tried to build up hope
But Joe Lunberg said ‘stop smoking dope’
Winter’s ended before it even begun
And Joel Myers don’t give refunds.
And as the blowtorch raged into the night
We did in Chuck in a satanic rite,
I saw VAWxman laughing in delight
The day that winter died

He was singing
No no you can't have any snow
Took my computer to the Euro
But its on crack like a ho
And Chuck and KA were drinking whiskey and rye
Singing we told you winter was gonna die
We told you winter was gonna die

Meteorologist explains Pueblo's 'brown hole'
http://www.chieftain...ro/1167483601/2

On Friday afternoon, the National Weather Service predicted between 2 and 4 inches of snowfall during the day with an additional 3 to 5 inches overnight.

With the local snowfall picking up in the late afternoon, the forecast looked very possible.

But if Pueblo is looking at 5 to 10 inches of snow this morning, chances are good that the conditions are much worse everywhere else in the state.

That's because Pueblo sits at the center of a geographic phenomenon that the locals refer to as a "banana belt" and weather service forecasters call the "brown hole."

"We call it the brown hole because during a serious winter storm, more often than not, the ground here is brown and dry when it's covered in snow everywhere else," said NWS meteorologist Steve Hodanish.

Friday's accumulations notwithstanding, the phenomenon played its tricks again Thursday night when surrounding communities saw depths of more than a foot in some places, while Pueblo's roads were fairly clear during the morning commute.

Hodanish said preliminary reports showed 16 inches of snow in Rye, 14 inches in the Wet Mountains and a foot of snow in Monument.

Hodanish said snowdrifts in some Arkansas Valley communities had piled up to 5 feet in some locations and could climb as high as 15 feet before the storm passes.

The reason Pueblo usually escapes the worst of Colorado's major snowstorms is because of the way the surrounding geography affects winds and low pressure systems in the state, Hodanish said.

During a winter storm, the area of low pressure usually sets up over Southeastern Colorado and the winds turn in a slow, cyclonic, northwestern pattern, Hodanish explained.

With the Wet Mountains to the west, Pikes Peak to the northwest and the Palmer Divide to the north, much of the winter air that hits Pueblo must drop in elevation. Subsequently, it loses its moisture.

"When air sinks, it dries out," Hodanish said.

That's not to say that Pueblo is dry all the time.

But during the winter months, it's dry most of the time.

When Pueblo does get significant snow, typically it is among the lowest accumulations in the state.

While last week's snowstorm crippled much of the Front Range and Pueblo's roads were treacherous, the storm forced few closures in the city.

Pueblo's schools were out for the winter holiday vacation, so it has been years since a winter storm forced closure in District 60.

"It pretty much happens with every single major storm," Hodanish said of Pueblo avoiding most heavy snowfalls.

"If you like snow, you probably don't want to live in Pueblo," he said.

The Mega Tsunami of 2500 B.C., by stellarfun
YOU CAN'T SEE THIS TOPIC, UNLESS YOU ARE A MEMBER OF Eastern US Weather Forums, so I have taken the liberty of posting out the article..

Ancient Crash, Epic Wave
By SANDRA BLAKESLEE

At the southern end of Madagascar lie four enormous wedge-shaped sediment deposits, called chevrons, that are composed of material from the ocean floor. Each covers twice the area of Manhattan with sediment as deep as the Chrysler Building is high.

On close inspection, the chevron deposits contain deep ocean microfossils that are fused with a medley of metals typically formed by cosmic impacts. And all of them point in the same direction — toward the middle of the Indian Ocean where a newly discovered crater, 18 miles in diameter, lies 12,500 feet below the surface.

The explanation is obvious to some scientists. A large asteroid or comet, the kind that could kill a quarter of the world’s population, smashed into the Indian Ocean 4,800 years ago, producing a tsunami at least 600 feet high, about 13 times as big as the one that inundated Indonesia nearly two years ago. The wave carried the huge deposits of sediment to land.

Most astronomers doubt that any large comets or asteroids have crashed into the Earth in the last 10,000 years. But the self-described “band of misfits” that make up the two-year-old Holocene Impact Working Group say that astronomers simply have not known how or where to look for evidence of such impacts along the world’s shorelines and in the deep ocean.

Scientists in the working group say the evidence for such impacts during the last 10,000 years, known as the Holocene epoch, is strong enough to overturn current estimates of how often the Earth suffers a violent impact on the order of a 10-megaton explosion. Instead of once in 500,000 to one million years, as astronomers now calculate, catastrophic impacts could happen every few thousand years.

The researchers, who formed the working group after finding one another through an international conference, are based in the United States, Australia, Russia, France and Ireland. They are established experts in geology, geophysics, geomorphology, tsunamis, tree rings, soil science and archaeology, including the structural analysis of myth. Their efforts are just getting under way, but they will present some of their work at the American Geophysical Union meeting in December in San Francisco.

This year the group started using Google Earth, a free source of satellite images, to search around the globe for chevrons, which they interpret as evidence of past giant tsunamis. Scores of such sites have turned up in Australia, Africa, Europe and the United States, including the Hudson River Valley and Long Island.

When the chevrons all point in the same direction to open water, Dallas Abbott, an adjunct research scientist at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in Palisades, N.Y., uses a different satellite technology to look for oceanic craters. With increasing frequency, she finds them, including an especially large one dating back 4,800 years.

So far, astronomers are skeptical but are willing to look at the evidence, said David Morrison, a leading authority on asteroids and comets at the NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, Calif. Surveys show that as many as 185 large asteroids or comets hit the Earth in the far distant past, although most of the craters are on land. No one has spent much time looking for craters in the deep ocean, Dr. Morrison said, assuming young ones don’t exist and that old ones would be filled with sediment.

Astronomers monitor every small space object with an orbit close to the Earth. “We know what’s out there, when they return, how close they come,” Dr. Morrison said. Given their observations, “there is no reason to think we have had major hits in the last 10,000 years,” he continued, adding, “But if Dallas is right and they find 10 such events, we’ll have a real contradiction on our hands.”

Peter Bobrowski, a senior research scientist in natural hazards at the Geological Survey of Canada, said “chevrons are fantastic features” but do not prove that megatsunamis are real. There are other interpretations for how chevrons are formed, including erosion and glaciation. Dr. Bobrowski said. It is up to the working group to prove its claims, he said.

William Ryan, a marine geologist at the Lamont Observatory, compared Dr. Abbott’s work to that of other pioneering scientists who had to change the way their colleagues thought about a subject.

“Many of us think Dallas is really onto something,” Dr. Ryan said. “She is building a story just like Walter Alvarez did.” Dr. Alvarez, a professor of earth and planetary sciences at the University of California, Berkeley, spent a decade convincing skeptics that a giant asteroid wiped out the dinosaurs 65 million years ago.

Ted Bryant, a geomorphologist at the University of Wollongong in New South Wales, Australia, was the first person to recognize the palm prints of mega-tsunamis. Large tsunamis of 30 feet or more are caused by volcanoes, earthquakes and submarine landslides, he said, and their deposits have different features.

Deposits from mega-tsunamis contain unusual rocks with marine oyster shells, which cannot be explained by wind erosion, storm waves, volcanoes or other natural processes, Dr. Bryant said.

“We’re not talking about any tsunami you’re ever seen,” Dr. Bryant said. “Aceh was a dimple. No tsunami in the modern world could have made these features. End-of-the-world movies do not capture the size of these waves. Submarine landslides can cause major tsunamis, but they are localized. These are deposited along whole coastlines.”

For example, Dr. Bryant identified two chevrons found over four miles inland near Carpentaria in north central Australia. Both point north. When Dr. Abbott visited a year ago, he asked her to find the craters.

To locate craters, Dr. Abbott uses sea surface altimetry data. Satellites scan the ocean surface and log the exact height of it. Underwater mountain ranges, trenches and holes in the ground disturb the Earth’s gravitational field, causing sea surface heights to vary by fractions of an inch. Within 24 hours of searching the shallow water north of the two chevrons, Dr. Abbott found two craters.

Not all depressions in the ocean are impact craters, Dr. Abbott said. They can be sink holes, faults or remnant volcanoes. A check is needed. So she obtained samples from deep sea sediment cores taken in the area by the Australian Geological Survey.

The cores contain melted rocks and magnetic spheres with fractures and textures characteristic of a cosmic impact. “The rock was pulverized, like it was hit with a hammer,” Dr. Abbott said. “We found diatoms fused to tektites,” a glassy substance formed by meteors. The molten glass and shattered rocks could not be produced by anything other than an impact, she said.

“We think these two craters are 1,200 years old,” Dr. Abbott said. The chevrons are well preserved and date to about the same time.

Dr. Abbott and her colleagues have located chevrons in the Caribbean, Scotland, Vietnam and North Korea, and several in the North Sea.

Hither Hills State Park on Long Island has a chevron whose front edge points to a crater in Long Island Sound, Dr. Abbott said. There is another, very faint chevron in Connecticut, and it points in a different direction.

Marie-Agnès Courty, a soil scientist at the European Center for Prehistoric Research in Tautavel, France, is studying the worldwide distribution of cosmogenic particles from what she suspects was a major impact 4,800 years ago.

But Madagascar provides the smoking gun for geologically recent impacts. In August, Dr. Abbott, Dr. Bryant and Slava Gusiakov, from the Novosibirsk Tsunami Laboratory in Russia, visited the four huge chevrons to scoop up samples.

Last month, Dee Breger, director of microscopy at Drexel University in Philadelphia, looked at the samples under a scanning electron microscope and found benthic foraminifera, tiny fossils from the ocean floor, sprinkled throughout. Her close-ups revealed splashes of iron, nickel and chrome fused to the fossils.

When a chondritic meteor, the most common kind, vaporizes upon impact in the ocean, those three metals are formed in the same relative proportions as seen in the microfossils, Dr. Abbott said.

Ms. Breger said the microfossils appear to have melded with the condensing metals as both were lofted up out of the sea and carried long distances.

About 900 miles southeast from the Madagascar chevrons, in deep ocean, is Burckle crater, which Dr. Abbott discovered last year. Although its sediments have not been directly sampled, cores from the area contain high levels of nickel and magnetic components associated with impact ejecta.

Burckle crater has not been dated, but Dr. Abbott estimates that it is 4,500 to 5,000 years old.

It would be a great help to the cause if the National Science Foundation sent a ship equipped with modern acoustic equipment to take a closer look at Burckle, Dr. Ryan said. “If it had clear impact features, the nonbelievers would believe,” he said.

But they might have more trouble believing one of the scientists, Bruce Masse, an environmental archaeologist at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. He thinks he can say precisely when the comet fell: on the morning of May 10, 2807 B.C.

Dr. Masse analyzed 175 flood myths from around the world, and tried to relate them to known and accurately dated natural events like solar eclipses and volcanic eruptions. Among other evidence, he said, 14 flood myths specifically mention a full solar eclipse, which could have been the one that occurred in May 2807 B.C.

Half the myths talk of a torrential downpour, Dr. Masse said. A third talk of a tsunami. Worldwide they describe hurricane force winds and darkness during the storm. All of these could come from a mega-tsunami.

Of course, extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof, Dr. Masse said, “and we’re not there yet.”

Genetic breakthrough that reveals the differences between humans
Scientists hail genetic discovery that will change human understanding
http://news.independ...icle2007490.ece




Scientists have discovered a dramatic variation in the genetic make-up of humans that could lead to a fundamental reappraisal of what causes incurable diseases and could provide a greater understanding of mankind.

The discovery has astonished scientists studying the human genome - the genetic recipe of man. Until now it was believed the variation between people was due largely to differences in the sequences of the individual " letters" of the genome.

It now appears much of the variation is explained instead by people having multiple copies of some key genes that make up the human genome.

Until now it was assumed that the human genome, or "book of life", is largely the same for everyone, save for a few spelling differences in some of the words. Instead, the findings suggest that the book contains entire sentences, paragraphs or even whole pages that are repeated any number of times.

The findings mean that instead of humanity being 99.9 per cent identical, as previously believed, we are at least 10 times more different between one another than once thought - which could explain why some people are prone to serious diseases.

The studies published today have found that instead of having just two copies of each gene - one from each parent - people can carry many copies, but just how many can vary between one person and the next.

The studies suggest variations in the number of copies of genes is normal and healthy. But the scientists also believe many diseases may be triggered by an abnormal loss or gain in the copies of some key genes.

Another implication of the finding is that we are more different to our closest living relative, the chimpanzee, than previously assumed from earlier studies. Instead of being 99 per cent similar, we are more likely to be about 96 per cent similar.

The findings, published simultaneously in three leading science journals by scientists from 13 different research centres in Britain and America, were described as ground-breaking by leading scientists.

"I believe this research will change for ever the field of human genetics," said Professor James Lupski, a world authority on medical genetics at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas.

Professor Lupski said the findings superseded the basic principles of human genetics that have been built up since the days of Gregor Mendel, the 19th century "father" of Mendelian genetics, and of Jim Watson and Francis Crick, who discovered the DNA double helix in 1953.

"One can no longer consider human traits as resulting primarily from [simple DNA] changes... With all respect to Watson and Crick, many Mendelian and complex traits, as well as sporadic diseases, may indeed result from structural variation of the genome," Professor Lupski said.

Deciphering the three billion letters in the sequence of the human genome was once likened to landing on the Moon. Having now arrived, scientists have found the "lunar landscape" of the genome is very different from what they expected.

Matthew Hurles, one of the project's leaders at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in Cambridge, said the findings show each one of us has a unique pattern of gains and losses of entire sections of our DNA.

"One of the real surprises of these results was just how much of our DNA varies in copy number. We estimate this to be at least 12 per cent of the genome - that has never been shown before," Dr Hurles said.

Scientists have detected variation in the "copy number" of genes in some individuals before but the sheer scale of the variation now being discovered is dramatic.

"The copy number variation that researchers had seen before was simply the tip of the iceberg, while the bulk lay submerged, undetected," Dr Hurles said.

"We now appreciate the immense contribution of this phenomenon to genetic differences between individuals," he said.

The studies involved a detailed and sophisticated analysis of the genomes of 270 people with Asian, African or European ancestry. It was important to include as wide a sample of the human gene pool as possible.

They found that 2,900 genes could vary in the number of copies possessed by the individuals. The genes involved multiple copies of stretches of DNA up to a million letters of the genetic code long.

"We used to think that if you had big changes like this, then they must be involved in disease. But we are showing that we can all have these changes," said Stephen Scherer of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute in Chevy Chase, Maryland.

But it is also becoming apparent that many diseases appear to be influenced by the number of copies of certain key genes, said Charles Lee, another of the project's leaders at the Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts.

"Many examples of diseases resulting from changes in copy number are emerging. A recent review lists 17 conditions of the nervous system alone, including Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's, that can result from such copy number changes," Professor Lee said.

"Indeed, medical research will benefit enormously from this map, which provides new ways for identifying genes involved in common diseases," he said.

Mark Walport, director of the Wellcome Trust, the medical charity that funded much of the research, said: "This important work will help to identify genetic causes of many diseases."

The key questions answered

What have scientists discovered today?

They have found that each of us is more different genetically than we previously believed. Instead of being 99.9 per cent identical, it may turn out to be more like 99 per cent identical - enough of a difference to explain many variations in human traits. Instead of having just two copies of every gene - one from each parent - we have some genes that are multiplied several times. Furthermore these "multiple copy numbers" differ from one person to another, which could explain human physical and even mental variation.

Why does this matter?

One practical benefit is that it could lead to a new understanding of some of the most difficult, incurable diseases. Although it adds an extra layer of complexity to our understanding of the human genome, the discovery could lead eventually to new insights and medical treatments of conditions ranging from childhood disorders to senile dementia. Scientists are predicting for instance that the knowledge could lead to new diagnostic tests for such diseases as cancer.

How was this discovery made?

Scientists have developed sophisticated methods of analysing large segments of DNA over recent years. "In some ways the methods we have used are 'molecular microscopes', which have transformed the techniques used since the foundation of clinical genetics where researchers used microscopes to look for visible deletions and rearrangements in chromosomes," explained Nigel Carter of the Sanger Institute in Cambridge.

What genes are copied many times and why?

There are just under 30,000 genes in the human genome, which consists of about 3 billion "letters" of the DNA code. The scientists found that more than 10 per cent of these genes appear to be multiplied in the 270 people who took part in the study. They do not know why some genes are copied and some are not. One gene, called CCL3L1, which is copied many times in people of African descent, appears to confer resistance to HIV. Another gene involved in making a blood protein is copied many times in people from south-east Asia and seems to help against malaria. Other research has shown that variation in the number of copies of some genes is involved in Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.

Are there any other practical applications?

The scientists looked at people from three broad racial groups - African, Asian and European. Although there was an underlying similarity in terms of how common it was for genes to be copied, there were enough racial differences to assign every person bar one to their correct ethnic origin. This might help forensic scientists wishing to know more about the race of a suspect.

Who made the discovery and where can we read more about it?

Scientists from 13 research centres were involved, including Britain's Sanger Institute in Cambridge, which also took a lead role in deciphering the human genome. The research is published in Nature, Nature Genetics and Genome Research.

1) Transient.....This will start to get desperate...."I dont see anything to get excited about...the cold will likely only stick around for 3 weeks"

2) Atlantic.....Nao shows no sign of going negative......February will sizzle

3) No storms..It will be cold and dry......The setup is not conducive to winter weather on the east coast

4) SE ridge....This will become a major player again without blocking


5) Overreliance on the PAC.....The PAC can only save us for so long.......eventually we will need the ATlantic and there are no signs of that....once the Alaskan ridge breaks down(and there are copious signs on the 40 day Euro ensembles), we will blowtorch again and the PAC jet will re-emerge

6) MJO - looks like it is weakening so it will mean warm...OR..looks like it is strengthening and will move through Phase 7-8 much too quickly...

Ginx snewx's sig, circa Feb 7 2007...............
Winter will start with a yawn JI's suicide note will be drawn. The bottom will fall out at the end of December to begin a period we all will remember. Snow will blow from Carolina to Maine reaping Dfuzz much pain. The ghosts of 1855 will howl in delight as snow piles high in record height. New England will freeze big as the DC weenies dig. A week to ten days will feature suppression while Fella suffers a bout of depression. Mid Feb to mid March get ready for BECS MECS HECS and SECS making us write to oil big checks. Alas the winter will end quite late unless Chuck has better insight to our fate

Second parking deck collapses from heavy sleet/snow
http://www.easternus...howtopic=126426

Second parking deck collapses

Sloatsburg – For the second time in two days, the upper level of a parking deck has collapsed. This time it was at the Sloatsburg Travel Plaza on the Thruway northbound.


Workers watch as debris is removed.

The cave in about a 50 foot by 50 foot section, came down onto the lower level. A Thruway Authority spokeswoman told MidHudsonNews.com there was no property damage and no injuries. The collapse occurred around 6:30 a.m.

Just as with yesterday’s parking deck cave in at the Poughkeepsie Galleria, piled up snow was the culprit, officials said.

The travel plaza is north of Interchange 15A – Sloatsburg and Suffern.

The Authority's Department of Engineering, as well as members of the Authority's Bridge Safety and Inspection Unit, has been inspecting the entire parking garage. Workers using backhoes were on the scene this afternoon, removing rubble from the structure.

The Authority has asked Wilbur Smith & Associates, a full-service transportation and infrastructure consulting firm, to begin inspecting the parking garage today before the partial closure is lifted.

A portion of the lower level of the parking garage at the Sloatsburg Travel Plaza remains open to customers.

The Authority will reopen the upper level and remaining portion of the lower level of the parking garage at the Sloatsburg Travel Plaza as soon as the inspections have been complete and conditions permit.

On Thursday, part of the upper parking deck at the Poughkeepsie Galleria caved in from the weight of piled snow. Crewed were on the scene today, removing rubble there.
