Schoolkids Won’t Know What An Earth Day Without Snow Looks Like

I actually have a post sitting in draft form about Concerns about Hotcoldwetdry in Michigan, never got around to posting it Wednesday, I’ll post it later today. That said, here’s how #EarthDay2015, with all the Concern about “climate change”, went

(Detroit Free Press)  Remember that old saying about April snow showers bringing May flowers?

I don’t either, but yes, there was snow today in Detroit, and all across southeast Michigan.

It was only a trace, though.

Unfortunately for those who prefer spring-like weather in spring, random snow showers are expected to continue throughout the day before tapering off this evening. Don’t expect any significant accumulation, though.

“It’s not pleasant outside, but it’s not unusual,” said Heather Orow, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service office in White Lake Township.

In fact, the region is below its normal average snowfall for April of 1.7 inches because until today there had been no measurable snowfall. Orow noted that the latest she could find a record for snowfall in the Detroit area was the trace of snow that hit on May 4, 1954.

Eh. It was probably caused by you driving your fossil fueled vehicle and having guacamole imported from Mexico.

    Interesting tiny factoid there Teach it snowed in Detroit. Do you consider this to be highly significant?
    I consider it much more significant that our planet had the hottest March in the last 150 years
    of course 4 billion years ago the temp was 3700 degrees SO how bad could a tiny miniscule rise be ? Even with those initial high temps life began so FREEEDOM !!!
