A three-day storm exiting Lake Tahoe Sunday evening has so far dropped about 2 feet of snow on the mountains and a few more inches are expected before the clouds move out of the area.

Mt. Rose Ski Tahoe received 16 inches Saturday and leads the Tahoe Basin with 28 inches of fresh snow heading into Sunday.

Several mountain resorts received a foot or over Saturday including Northstar California with 16 inches, Heavenly got 15, Homewood received 13 and Kirkwood got a foot of fresh snow overnight. Sierra at Tahoe received 6 inches.

Ice Age Farmer Report: A DAY'S WAGES: Farms "Like Lambs To The Slaughter" - Grand Solar Minimum

Flood waters run over Interstate 90, two miles west of Mt. Vernon on Thursday, Sept. 12.
As damages from the flooding in US Midwest surpass $5.3 billion -- affecting farmers across the nation -- and more flooding is expected in 2020, it is time to step back and take stock of what is happening. The war on farmers -- the war on our food -- is a silent war with quiet weapons, meaning we must work to SEE what is going on: farm after farm lost. Christian makes it real.

Richard Alexander, 74, and his wife, Elizabeth Alexander, 79, both from Ash Fork, were found dead, most likely from hypothermia, as they were found beneath a snowdrift, KNXV reported.

Detectives said the couple's car was found a mile from where the bodies were found, the television station reported.

The bodies were found outside a private property on land along Old Route 66, KTVK reported.

Mike Haas and Diane Haas were heading out of their Ash Fork home when they noticed two figures in their yard, KNXV reported.

"(Mike) wondered if they were sleeping, so he got out and yelled at them and they didn't respond," Diane Haas told the television station.

Kitchen Hut at Cradle Mountain has proved a sanctuary for three walkers.
Rescue efforts to extract three injured hikers from the Tasmanian wilderness will continue on Sunday morning after severe weather hampered the operation on Saturday.

The trio remains in the Kitchen Hut on the Cradle Mountain National Park, where they sought refuge after they began to suffer from hypothermia on Friday afternoon.

Strong winds, thick snow and freezing temperatures have halted the efforts of the police, paramedics and SES to rescue the group, believed to be from India.

It follows a failed attempt to rescue them on Friday night when winds of 100 kilometres per hour forced a police helicopter to return to Hobart.

Early winter storm pummels Northeast

The bad weather that swept across the Midwest during the holiday weekend is now pelting the Northeast with rain and snow.
Parts of New England are in for more heavy snow on Tuesday.

The winter storm that blanketed much of the Northeast with snow on Monday, disrupting travel and closing schools, is expected to keep hammering parts of New England on Tuesday.

As the storm system moves slowly northeastward, some areas could get an additional foot of snow overnight and into the morning, forecasters said. Winter storm warnings and advisories were posted for most of Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maine.

"It's going to get cranking tonight and tomorrow morning," said Frank Nocera, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Norton, Mass. Metropolitan Boston, which already had four to eight inches of snow in some suburbs, could see those amounts double by Tuesday, he said, and further school closings and commuting problems were possible.

The storm delivered the first major snowfall of the season in the Northeast, but other than coming at a relatively early date, it did not pack many surprises for weather experts.

Calgary just broke a weather record dating back more than half a century.

This past month marked the fifth snowiest November that YYC had seen since the record began, and the snowiest November that the city had experienced since 1966!

According to YYC Weather Records, the Twitter account keeping track of these sorts of things, Calgary saw a grand total of 47.4 cm of snowfall between November 1 and November 30, 2019.

4 Renowned scientists expose major IPCC shortcomings: "Models Clearly Erroneous"

The Munich Climate Conference 2019

Last weekend the climate conference by the Germany-based European Institute for Climate and Energy EIKE took place in Munich, despite threats by leftist radicals.

More than a dozen leading international climate experts presented views that severely challenge mainstream alarmist climate science.

1. Alps glaciers smaller than today during much of the Holocene

Among the speakers was Prof. em. Christian Schlüchter is a leading Swiss geologist who studied the glaciers of the Alps in great detail for decades. In his talk he reported his findings from very old timber found in and below glaciers, and what those ancient tree remnants tell us about the glacial epochs of the Alps.

World Snow Wrap, December 6 - Huge snow totals again in California, more snow in Europe and Japan

Chris Benchetler, getting deep in Mammoth last week, November 30, when the first storm to hit the Sierras dropped 90cms of snow. Mammoth has had another metre since and yet another 70-90-cms is forecast early next week.
While summer snowfalls in Australia generated a bit of novelty value early this week, the real action is in the Northern Hemisphere, as it should be at this time of year with significant snowfalls in the US, Europe and Japan. The totals coming out of California are huge with seven-day totals of 2.4 metres and there is more on the way with another three-day storm set to drop 70-80cms by early next week. If you're on the fence about escaping the heat, smoke, bushfires and blue bottles of an Australian summer read on, you may just be convinced to book that airfare for somewhere cold and snowy.

USA

The Sierras are renowned for big storm totals and the past week is a very good example, from zero snow a week ago to seven-day totals of one to 2.4metres on the upper mountains, Kirkwood in California with the top reading. Not surprisingly, avalanche danger is high and mountain ops teams have been working hard to manage the snow and get more lifts and terrain open at all the Tahoe resorts for the weekend. There is a break in the storm action now, but not for long with another strong storm set to deliver 30-95cms for California from Friday night through to Sunday. Mammoth is looking good for 45cms at the base and double that up high, which will lead to more terrain opening over the next week.

A snowy owl flies over Algoma.
The beautiful and majestic snowy owl has made its return to Wisconsin.

"At least 20" snowy owls have been documented in Wisconsin as of November 25, the state Department of Natural Resources says.

The owls have been spotted in 12 counties so far, ranging as far north as Bayfield and Door County, and as far south as Milwaukee County. Most of the owls photographed so far are adults, which the DNR says suggests a low number of births on arctic breeding grounds during the summer.
