Global Warming Alarmists Take Another Hit: Snow Falls in Vegas Region, Denver (24 in.) in April

The Goracle is not pleased. Another "inconvenient" fact for the former VP turned environmental cult leader is that we are having snow later in the year than has ever been recorded in recent history in many areas of the country.

A chill moved across Las Vegas late Tuesday and Wednesday, bringing lower temperatures and strong winds to the valley.

Five inches of snow fell Tuesday night on Mount Charleston (about 30 mi. outside Vegas), and trace amounts of rain were recorded at McCarran International Airport.

The article goes on to explain the historical significancr to the snow storm:

The last time snow fell in Las Vegas in April was on April 4,1958, making Wednesday's activity the latest snow sighting recorded to date.

Snow in Colorado isn't unheard of, but the amount of snow falling this late in the year in a bit unusual.

As usually is the case in Colorado, snow totals from this storm will be very closely related to elevation. Locations above 6,000 feet in Jefferson, Boulder and Larmier Counties will see the most significant accumulation. Communities such as Bailey, Evergreen, Genesee, Nederland, Estes Park and Red Feather Lakes could see a total of 18 to 36 inches by Saturday.

Locations along the Palmer Divide in Douglas and Elbert Counties including Castle Rock, Franktown, Parker, Elizabeth and Kiowa will likely see between 15 and 30 inches of total accumulation.

The lower altitudes of Colorado will see a bunch of snow, too.

Denver, Lakewood, Aurora, and Boulder areas could see 10 to 20 inches of heavy, wet snow with the highest amounts near the base of the foothills. About 4 to 8 inches would fall on Friday during the day before another 4 to 8 inches falls on Friday night. The remainder would fall on Saturday.

This Ponzi scheme surrounding global warming alarmism only succeeds in fattening the pockets of people like Gore and his ilk by using fear to persuade us to fork our money over to them to "save the planet".
