In Budapest and the countryside it has been raining constantly since the weekend, causing disruptions in public transport, but according to the weather forecasts the first snow of the season has arrived in the North Hungarian Mountains.

According to the National Meteorological Service, it is completely natural during this period that the first snowfall hits the country, especially in the higher-lying, mountainous areas, but they also noted that it had already occurred in flat areas this early in the season.

Sprite-Halo with Feet and a Red Sprite on September 28, 2020 @ Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico
So many electric changes are now manifesting visibly in Earth's skies that from this point forward human and animal life will be affected electromagnetically. Red sprites now forming feet, intense red aurora deep into the crack in our magnet field, birds by the thousands smashing into buildings from Philadelphia to NYC. Mars suddenly has clouds, which is only possible if electrical changes are happening in its crust. Signs in the skies.

Comment: Indeed. It seems the electrical nature of our weather, changing atmosphere and weakening magnetosphere is becoming ever more apparent: It looks like we are beginning to observe what the ancients recorded at times of global upheaval/climate shift.

Trees downed in Schaghticoke, N.Y., during last week's derecho.
The wind damage and severe thunderstorms on Oct. 7 were part of a rare weather event here in Southern New England: a derecho, and it caused widespread wind damage throughout the area.

It was a Weather Alert Day, and for good reason. A derecho is a prolonged, widespread wind damage event over 250 miles and with wind gusts 58 mph or stronger.

Events like this are rather rare, not only in Southern New England, but the northeast as a whole.

Lines of strong thunderstorms happen consistently in the summer, but most struggle to hold together and cause consistent damage over 250 miles. In October, derechos are even rarer.

In the past 25 years, derechos have only entered Southern New England three times.

Comment: In August this year a powerful derecho storm wreaked havoc across the US Midwest leaving 1.1 million without power.
