click on "Massive winter system" above to read news article about huge storm. Also, I wrote comments below about the storm as well.
I was listening to the weather Channel about the latest storm that is affecting 100 million people in 33 states from Arizona and New Mexico through Texas and Missouri along to New York and even Washington DC on north up to Illinois to Maine. In some places snow will fall (up to 28 inches in the next 24 to 36 hours). In the lower parts of the freezing part of this storm will be a band of ice that will break powerlines and trees and freeze roads with the very dangerous "Black Ice". Because of the Arctic Air mass this storm is very dangerous because some of the areas that are experiencing temperatures below zero Fahrenheit could also lose power, and especially in "all electric" homes this could cost lives or frostbit hands, fingers or feet if there is no way to build a fire. So, if you feel it to do it please pray for these folks the next 24 to 36 hours (and after if they lose power from the ice buildup on powerlines or nearby trees).
It is my thought that "Superstorms" like this one are caused by a combination of Global Climate Change combined with all the Volcanoes that have gone off in the Northern Hemisphere the last year or two. When the volcanic glass dust particles get above 20,000 feet in altitude they stay up there for around 2 years or more and block the sun to earth wherever they are which reduces temperatures on the ground. In the late 1700s they froze the Mississippi river all the way to New Orleans and might have helped cause the French revolution because crops wouldn't grow in France right. This is my personal opinion from everything I have studied the last few years.
