It's Always Winter But Never Christmas in Narnia and California

It’s never Christmas in Narnia because the land is blighted by an evil queen. In California, it’s never Christmas because it’s Winter Holiday instead. But both lands feature plenty of snow.

According to the Washington Post, “California’s ski resorts are enjoying — to flip the famous 1966 surfing travelogue on its head — the endless winter.” Mammoth Mountain Ski Area is beating the other resorts that claim to be staying open through the 4th of July. At Mammoth, the snow pack is so heavy skiing in August is a distinct possibility.

The snowfall for May set a new record and, “Across the Sierra Nevada range, the snowpack is more than double the late-spring norm.” There was even a snowfall that brought 3 to 6 inches of fresh powder over Memorial Day Weekend.

And just to prove the punishing ‘Great California Drought That Proved Global Warming Is Real’ has been pushed into the dustbin of history, San Francisco soaked up 2 inches of rain in May when the average rainfall is only one-half inch.

May also brought cooler temperatures. “Downtown Los Angeles had a daytime low of 49 on Memorial Day, the first sub-50 day in the month of May since 1967.” L.A. also had the seventh coolest May since record keeping began in 1878.

This is great news for normal people and a catastrophe for Global Warming fanatics. That’s why rain and temperature records are characterized as “weather,” which is completely distinct from “climate,” which remains a disaster that will kill everyone in 12 years.

The fact is the climate does change over time. It gets cooler and warmer without much input from man. We don’t think it’s a coincidence that these cool temperatures are blessing us during the current “solar minimum” when sunspots and solar flares are at a very low level.

At a recent NOAA workshop scientists predicted the minimum will reach the point of lowest activity by sometime between July 2019 and September 2020.

The coverage of the UK’s Express was much more exciting: “During a solar minimum, the sun’s otherwise violent surface takes on a calmer and almost idyllic appearance. But solar minimums also result in less energy from the sun being thrown out into space and towards the earth. And when the sun entered a solar minimum between 1650 and 1710, NASA said the earth was plunged into a ‘deep freeze’.”

When the weather’s cool and there is plenty of rain it’s a great time to prepare for the next drought that will eventually arrive in California. Building reservoirs now to hold the rain would help the state weather (no pun intended) less rain in the future.

Unfortunately, the legislature in Sacramento has been suffering from a Common Sense Minimum for decades and we don’t see any break in that weather for the foreseeable future.
