    We also gained some ice here in New Hampshire over the weekend. And it’s mid April! This is coldest start to Spring I’ve ever seen in my 20 years living here…

  2. Griff says:

    yes, but the sea ice volume is DOWN compared to 36 of the last 40 years.

    and extent is lowest for time of year for last 40.

    Isn’t it funny that DMI has updated the surface mass budget Greenland Ice sheet graph to remove the massive above average 2016-2017 snowfall but leaves the 2011-2012 high melt year? I wonder why any reputable science organization would do this?

    And, in other news, DMI ice volume rose again yesterday.
