    Love the lone leafless tree in the middle of a snow-covered field! That is a classic.

    We’ll be flirting with record low temperatures in the northeast on Friday (low teens in my area). Brrrrr!

    Gorgeous (again!), Tony.

    On another topic, The Weather Channel has outdone itself (bravo!) for climate alarmism. With its new ‘United States of Climate Change’, it’s parading every convenient deception available.

    One example: The beetle infestations in Colorado. A quick search online directs one to the 2014 Inset Disease Update from Colorado State, which states:

    “Unhealthy forests, including those that are over-mature or
    overstocked, provide host material for several species of bark
    beetles. The long-term absence of wildfire can result in increased
    numbers of trees per acre, buildups of forest fuels and changes in
    species composition, which can favor development of forest pest
    outbreaks or result in wildfires of increased severity. Moreover,
    climatic events such as extended drought and severe storms
    resulting in windthrow, can favor certain pest species.

    Forest management can create conditions that are less
    favorable for the development of large-scale pest outbreaks, and
    provide many other long-term benefits. Forest management actions
    that can help create unfavorable conditions for pest outbreaks
    include timely harvesting of mature trees, forest thinning, favoring
    tree species that are less susceptible to pest outbreaks and, where
    possible, promoting species diversity. Foresters with the Colorado
    State Forest Service can provide assistance to private forest
    landowners to improve the condition of their forests.”

    Shake my head…So many myths, so little time, so little willingness to listen…

      Lived there in the ’70’s towards the end of a global cooling trend. Beetle kill in Colorado was horrible. Spent a few summers – oh such a strong young man then – on contract with the forest service cutting down towering spruces killed by the beetles.

      Yin-yang.

      The Weather Channel (TWC) is the CNN of weather. Make sure to remove any TWC apps and links from your phone, pad device, and computer. And eliminate your cable TV in favor of streaming services – that way you get rid of both CNN and TWC!

    Is that a picture of Mars? Where are the flags planted?
