Bummer: Moscow Sees Heaviest November Snow In 50 Years

Probably because you, dear reader, drove your car to work instead of riding a bike

(WP) A major snowstorm has brought Moscow to a standstill, disrupting road and air travel in a city that’s no stranger to harsh wintry weather.

The Associated Press reports that over 8 inches (27 cm) of snow fell in the Russian capital in the past 24 hours. That’s half of the city’s typical November snowfall. Moscow’s city hall has called it the biggest November snowstorm in half a century, and local forecasters expect the snow to continue into Friday.

Much of Europe is also in a deep freeze.

Wintry conditions have also extended westward into central Europe. In central and southern Germany, icy road conditions led to multiple accidents, including one death. Spiegel Online reports more than 10” (27 cm) of fresh snow fell atop the Feldberg in the Black Forest. Freezing temperatures and heavy snow also affected the Swiss and Austrian Alps – though such conditions are hardly unusual there for this time of year.

Britain is also seeing early snow. Probably caused by Hotcoldwetdry.

Just like Hurricane Sandy was an example of global warming, this snowstorm is an example of non-global warming. I for one am glad to seem them cancel each other out.

I’m waiting for the Warmists to start their yapping about cold and snow being caused by “climate change”.

Bummer Teach the TEMP in Moscow was only just average. Thre was heavy PERCIPITATION. And of course warm air can hold much more moisture than cold air. Remember the leson about how the driest dessert is the interior of AntBecause it is too cold for the air to hold moisture. This was covered in high school Earth Science wasn’t it??? You know with other things like the age of the Earth ?It is a wonder you can not differentiate between the 2. You can see why the GOP has been classed as the anti science party.

let’s see some proof you antisemitic troll?

Wondering if this is gonna be another bad winter for USSR and Europe like a few years ago when hundreds of people died from the excessive heat, i mean cold. Well, they did die from the heat too because greenies don’t want cheap energy for air conditioning.

Has this been talked about in the media this weekend?
I’m betting it wont.
