Brutal Global Warming In New Mexico

I was skiing behind Taos in deep snow on May 18, 1980 – the day Mt. St. Helens blew it’s top. Looks like conditions will be similar this year.

    From over 1,000 miles NW of Taos:
    I was 251 miles directly east of Mt. St. Helens on the day she blew. I heard the boom and the dogs barked. We did not connect that with the Mountain until ash started to fall a couple of hours later.
    The weather was very nice, sunny and warm, until the sky went gray and then black.
    We’ve moved closer to the Mountain and today the weather is nice, sunny and slowly warming – no ash in sight.
    The tomato plants keep asking for a little more global warming and they were happy to learn it may get to 74°F this afternoon.

    Oh Oh, massive spike in temps in Greenland. I wondered if they are going to be
    ‘stunned again!’

    Enough snow there is a cornice forming along the ridge line. Those overhangs of wind blown snow are one thing climbers and skiers have to look out for. People have fallen through cornices to their deaths and of course there can be an enhanced avalanche danger moving on the slope below them. But a hard stable one sure makes for an exciting start for the off-piste skier when there is plenty of powder below. Lots of air time.
