You can relay on cute icons or smart-ass graphs, but the reality is going to suck.

It looks like the chance for any real snow anywhere in the state for the next week is basically gone. The mountains maybe get 3inches but that is the maximum. Looks like continued dry for a while!

The report opens with this: "It is my hope that this report shocks us into action. Even for those of us already committed to fighting
climate change, I hope it causes us to work with much more urgency."

Unfortunately, I think we are well past the "tipping point" of runaway global warming. Even if we stopped all greenhouse gas emissions today, the earth would continue to warm for some time due to the gasses already in the atmosphere.

But we're not stopping emissions. And didn't China and India give us the finger at the last climate change summit and refuse to agree to any emissions limits? We are screwed.

looks like some flurries friday, a bit more snow monday, then a pretty good storm for wednesday next week. The longer range mid DEC pattern looks really good. I'm feeling a pretty drastic change in a week or two.

Hearing this non-stop for the past year has been more annoying than the dry weather itself. I'm taking the studded snows off my commuter bike and putting some faster tires back on. Winter's cancelled.

I find your lack of faith disturbing...

...though I do wonder where you see a pretty good storm happening on Wednesday next week. Here's what I see:

I'm not worried about climate change as much as I am about the sun changing into a red giant and turning the surface of the earth into plasma. That's coming in about 4 billion years, are you prepared?

1200 GFS that just came out shows a storm/moisture sagging further south and hitting CO wed/thur next week, still a week out and will probably change, but I can hold onto something :)

Well don't stop believin I guess. Looks like Joel sees the same thing you're talkin bout, but wrote Thursday/Friday instead of Wednesday/Thursday.

It'll snow in Colorado or the season will be a perpetual road trip. Either way.
