SNOW STORM: Stay off of the roads || VIDEO, GALLERY

Published: Sat, February 6, 2010 @ 8:55 a.m.
  Snow Storm Hits Valley

A winter storm dumped more than a foot of snow on the Valley leaving residents digging out.

A winter storm dumped more than a foot of snow on the Valley leaving residents digging out.

Police officials throughout the Valley are urging residents to stay off of roads this morning. If you do not need to travel, don't.

Up to a foot of snow fell in some places overnight making main roads snow-packed and hazardous. Many side roads in some neighborhoods are virtually impassable.

The National Weather Service says the winter storm warning will remain in effect until noon today and an additional 3-to-6 inches of snow is expected. By the storm's end, the weather service said, 8-to-12 inches of snow should blanket the area with locally higher amounts expected.

Current radar shows snow tapering off from Youngstown south within the hour.

Next up in this winter blast are gusty northeast winds of 20-to-25 mph with drifting snow and visibility falling to below one mile.

Stan and USA1 you must be blind if you think global warming means an end to seasons.

What it really means is a warmer world average temperature which will give us more SEVERE weather both in the WINTER and the SUMMER.

To those that claim global warming is not man made here are some facts that might be challenging for you to understand:

From 1998
From 2005
From 2006

And most importantly from January 7, 2010 and in language most school children can understand.

And as for sterilizing humans..... I am sure glad you two do all of your ranting online because if you were saying all of this out loud that sure would be a LOT of hot air!

You keep right on thinking that Howie ! To eliminate severe cold and heavy snows contribute to fight global warming .

TNX for the liberal dose of BS . Sure is a good thing that it is online or it would stink up the place !

Will someone please fire Al Gore. For the last 3 years ice / snow / cold has swept all across America. Thoughts are it is not America who has global warming problems but other countries which have no regulations on global warming so please stop blaming America!!

Republicans don't want anyone to have anything ,they have some money so they turn into narrow minded morons.
There goal is to keep everyone down so they can feel SO important and wine about ANY taxes.
Start the draft and I bet you they quit being such super patriots when their sons and daughters have to do their dirty work.

I consider myself to be an environmentalist ,hunter and outdoorsman in genreral.I care about the environment but global warming is a bunch of UN crap created to further abolish our national sovereignty and rights. It is fanatasy.If they were truly concerned about global warming there would be massive tree plantings going on in areas east of the Mississippi where we should have lots of trees and none of this is going on.

Our govenor decided to close down the last state forest nursery ,the one that supplied much of the south eastern forest land with trees planted in the 1930s when they had real "green jobs".I am neither Dem nor Rep by the way because at the highest levels as Lou Dobbs said they are "two wings of the same bird."

A hot summer day no more proves man-made global warming than a cold winter day disproves it.

The facts:

The global warming "smoking gun." The global warming "experts" at the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in England, have been caught brazenly discussing the destruction and hiding of data that did not support global warming claims. The academics here also worked closely with the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Polar bear populations are increasing, and that prior decreases were from hunting.

The Antartic Ice Cap is growing to such a degree as to make shipping difficult.

The Martian Ice Caps are shrinking, like the Artic Ice Cap. Is the shrinking of the Martian Ice Cap related to man-made global warming? The Artic Ice Cap size has always fluctuated.

The temperatures on the Earth been warmer than they are now, multiple times. The Earth's most recent warming peaked in 1998, and has cooled since, while CO2 levels have increased.

It was so much warmer 400 years ago that the Vikings could circumnavigate Greenland by ship.





The Global Warming Lie is a tool used by the ruling socialists on the feeble-minded to:

Get rich

Acheive worldwide Income Redistribution

Further transfer wealth and power from the subjects to the rulers.

I live in Youngstown(Cornersburg). My husband has cleared our driveway, but we will be lucky if our road is cleared to go to work Monday morning. Getting the main roads cleared is good, but is of little value if you can't get to them. No church service or Super Bowl party for us tomorrow.

We had 16" of snow.

It never fails to amuse me how every time we have a snow storm people equate it to positive evidence against climate change-which is the proper terminology. Here's a reminder-

During the last 100 years the Earth has warmed by 0.76 °C on average, and the rate of warming has further increased. The 11 warmest years on record have all occurred in the last 12 years. The second half of the 20th century was the warmest period in the northern hemisphere for at least 1 300 years. Europe has warmed by about 1 °C over the past 100 years, faster than the global average.

Rates of observed sea level rise almost doubled from 18 centimetres per century in 1961–2003 to 31 cm per century in 1993–2003

The concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases in the atmosphere has continued to increase due to man-made emissions, and the rate of increase has further accelerated. Current concentrations of CO2 and methane are the highest for at least 650 000 years.

Extreme weather events have increased and regional climate patterns are changing. Heat waves and other weather extremes, as well as changes in atmospheric circulation patterns, storm tracks and precipitation, can now be traced back to climate change caused by human activities.

All of that information is provided by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on climate change. The panel is made up of the top climate scientists in the entire world.

Good luck getting your county roads done, marilyn kenner wants to lay another 11 road workers off some with 20 years seniority but still refuses to lay any supervisors or office personel. Someone needs to take a serious look at how she runs that office.

I don't get it. Can someone explain to me how the amount of snow disproves climate change/ global warming? The temperature isn't that cold to me and I haven't heard of any record low temps. Please help me understand, preferably in layman's terms. Thanks.

"Republicans don't want anyone to have anything ,they have some money so they turn into narrow minded morons."

Well rloh330 you are right as usual . We should liquidate all businesses and give the money to to the masses in the ghettos so they won't have to steal to support their drug habits . There is no need for anyone to work or run a business that has people working .

I was out digging tunnels for my dog at 4:00 am. He stands about 16 inches high at the shoulders, but disappears if he jumps into the snow. The shoveling started when I had to go out to rescue him.
He came in twice Friday night so covered with stubborn snowballs that I put him in the shower stall and sprayed him to melt them, then dried him with my hairdryer.
I have at least 21 inches in Boardman.

What does the temp tonight have to do with the snow that fell last night?

27Nonsocialist(710 comments)posted 6 years ago

Hafniumcarbide, SemperTyrannis, and anyone else left who still believes in "man-made global warming",

The UN has been caught falsifying data re: global warming. The UN has a secondary gain re: the existence of global warming. The facts from non-UN sources show that the Earth has cooled since the El Nino effects of 1998, and that trend is expected to continue. See the multitude of links below, including the one from National Geographic.






I'll say it again, a cold and snowy winter day does not disprove global warming anymore that a hot summer day proves it.

"What does the temp tonight have to do with the snow that fell last night?"

Super cold air hits warm moist air and guess what . Lots of snow . Very cold tonight means the cold has overwhelmed the warm air .

Dont forget. Check out tonights air, dressed for the shower, so that you can get the full experience of global warming .

29hafniumcarbide(17 comments)posted 6 years ago

Stan- Super cold air? The temp today was in the 20's. That isn't super cold to me. Tonight is supposed to be in the single digits. Cold I suppose but not super cold compared to the record lows that are in the negatives.

Nonsocialist- I was just wondering how a big snowstorm proves global warming is a lie. Whether global warming is true and we are responsible is beyond me and honestly too complicated for me to try and debate. I was just trying to understand an argument that didn't make much sense to me.

I read your posts. My question was to those that used a big snowstorm as a reason why global warming isn't real. Just trying to understand their logic not yours since we agree that winter snow doesn't have much relevance.

Stay safe and warm as well.

Idiots is an understatement. But as for the roads in the Cornersburg area, I do agree we'll be lucky to be able to get out by Monday. I grew up in Austintown and never experienced having to wait days for my road to get plowed...the City of Youngstown needs to get it together. Absolutely ridiculous.

Remember the 60's ? This is normal. Safety first but don't let these civic workers scare you. The politicians should take a cue from this. The picture in the Vindy tells it all. Notice those men shoveling. That's the kind of WORK AMERICA needs. Maybe we need a teacher to tell us how to do it. That their hands won't even touch Buts and Elbows will bring us out of this spin !!!
