Another Dead Canary

Alaska used to be the canary in the global boiling coal mine, but now they are having record cold and snow.

With regard to climate change, is Alaska the canary in the coal mine?

“ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Much of Alaska has plunged into a deep freeze, with temperatures well below zero. Anchorage has seen some of its coldest temperatures in years and the mayor opened warming facilities for people who are homeless or don’t have reliable heating.

To the south in the state capital, Juneau, snow blanketed streets and rooftops as part of a two-day storm that helped set a new January snowfall record of 6.4 feet (2 meters) for the city, which is nestled in a relatively temperate rainforest. That’s after back-to-back storms walloped Juneau earlier in the month.

Anchorage surpassed 100 inches (2.5 meters) of snow this week, the earliest date the state’s largest city has ever hit that mark.”

    oops…. I put this in the wrong thread. I live in South Central Minnesota and we’re having a very warm winter so far with the exception of 10 days in January. last winter we had record snow fall this winter almost nothing. there’s a saying in Minnesota about winter temperatures and it goes back decades and it goes like this… when it’s warm in Alaska it’s cold in Minnesota and when it’s warm in Minnesota it’s cold in Alaska. often that cold weather in Alaska will end up in Minnesota in a week or two.
