    They covered that when they changed from Global Warming to Global Climate Change. Now, any weather event is proof of the horrible impact American SUVs are having on poor Gaea.

    50 ' of snow in one season. That's a lot of snow

    Mt. Crystal stands tall at 7012 feet elevation.

    What that means is that there was a lot of warm moist air condensing on the Cascades this season.

    It tells us nothing other than that.

    Mt. Baker in Washington State holds the record. That was the winter of 1998-1999, and they had 95 feet of snow. We all remember how cold 1998 was, correct? Hot year or cold year, our mountains get snow. And with the wind blowing off of the ocean, a warm year will make more snow because more water is evaporated.

    Indeed. Almost as brilliant as Wry Catcher saying the tornado victims in Joplin and the flood victims in the South and Midwest are responsible for the tragedies because they didn't vote Democrat.

    I see. You think 1998 was a cold year, Oddie? I find that believable.
