Brrrr… Record Snow & Cold Causing Snow Plow Shoot-Outs In Spokane

Record snows are causing snow plow shootings in Spokane, Washington.

And sea ice growth finished the year in 2008 at the same level as 1979.

Sea ice levels now equal those seen 29 years ago, when the year 1979 also drew to a close. (Cryosphere Today)

The snow plow operators in Spokane are not getting a break–
But they are getting shot at!
My Way reported:

More than 6 feet of snow in the past three weeks has left Spokane residents frustrated. Tempers are so frayed that a man was arrested for shooting at a snow plow operator.

This unusually harsh winter has disrupted schools, traffic, garbage pickup and mail service in the city of 200,000…

Spokane has received more than 78 inches of snow – about the height of Michael Jordan – since mid-December. That’s far above its average of less than 50 inches for an entire winter. Normally about 16 inches would have fallen at this point.

The local record for an entire winter is 93.5 inches set in 1949-50. That is likely to be shattered soon…

One man was arrested by Spokane police after gunshots were fired Monday morning at a private snow plow operator who was clearing a parking lot. Police said the motorist apparently got upset when the plow operator honked his horn.

The oceans have been cooling since 2003.
Sea ice is growing at the fastest pace on record.
A rare 50 year arctic blast is cooling the west coast.
There are growing fears of a coming freeze worse than the ice age.
Alaskan Sea Glaciers are advancing for the first time in 250 years.
And, for the second straight year the Earth is, in fact, cooling… not warming.

This US Climate Map October 2007-November 2008 shows that temperatures are well below normal throughout the US this year.

It looks like Al Gore is a bit off on his prediction that North Pole will be completely gone in 5 years.
