               Colder than normal weather is NOT climate, but warmer than normal is.

    TH, I live in Paraguay (Im Irish) which is a paradise but anyway Trump needs to look after his health and weight maybe he should ride a bike and get at least 8 hours sleep daily. I really like the guy but he will need urgently to look after his weight ect if he can do his mission please get message across.

      Eliza, Some of Trump’s ‘weight’ is a bullet proof vest. However he really does need to watch what he eats. (He has never slept as long as 8 hours.)

      The people at the CTH who went to the latest rally says Trump is looking healthier, happier, thinner and more rested. I am glad to hear that. The year of non-stop campaigning was really hard on the guy. No rest, no exercise, no decent food.

      No one objected when Oh Bummer looked like a ball boy from Biafra.

    1945 and 1946 were very early bloomings of the cherry blossoms. No killer freezes those years either.

    Permanent Drought to Cause Unprecdented Rise at Lake Tahoe

    If Tahoe reaches full capacity, as Blanchard expects the lake will do at the end of July, it would see its largest physical rise in recorded history going back to 1900.
    Since the start of the rainy season on October 1, the lake level has shot up 4.5 feet. If the lake fills, it will rise a total of 6.5 feet, beating the 1995 record when it jumped up six feet in a single season, which runs Oct. 1 to Sept. 30.

    This is a huge milestone for a body of water that flirted with record-low levels amid a five-year drought. At the same time last year, the lake level was a full 4.19 feet lower. This was discouraging in an El Niño year when storms expected to bring record-breaking snow and rain delivered only average precipitation, filling some reservoirs but making only a small dent in California’s drought conditions overall.

    This year is telling a different story as storms ceaselessly battered the Sierra Nevada in January and February. The Lake Tahoe Basin received 10 more inches of precipitation than any year in recorded history, going back to 1910. Because Tahoe has a large surface area, the precipitation alone provides a significant rise.

    And then there’s the Sierra Nevada snowpack. The range is piled high with the most snow it has seen in decades, and a recent survey on March 1 indicated the snowpack is 185 percent of average. As the weather warms, this snow will melt and pour billions of gallons of water into the rising lake.

    Thank God we have a theory that predicts everything, otherwise we would have been caught completely off guard.

    These guys would like to see some global warming. Being under the rotor wash in cold weather sucks, that is with the obvious exception of when the bird is coming to take you away.
