    That is what caused it.

    'What Caused the Christmas Storm', the weathermen in this town who are worthless in forcasting, even with their million dollar weather devices on giving a forcast. Joe Danado and Louie Allen come back from the dead!!!!

    Was that the entire article?

    With the above normal western Atlantic Ocean any kind of snowstorm for the Washington DC will be short lived and easterly wind will bring milder air 1000 feet above sea level causing snow to change to sleet or plain old fashion rain

    Warm and cold air coming together at an odd time of the year. It's not rocket science.

    You're afraid to look at the sky so all you see is your computer screen. For 390 of the last 430 days we have had a weird thin overcast of cirrus like clouds day or night or both. USAF and NASA call it "Jet Cirrus" and it comes from the bizarre gigantic white ribbons we all have seen for about 390 of the last 430 days, unless we don;t look at the sky. The freaky microdroplets that have preceded every single rain for 430 days are full of micropowder when dried, and the only explanation for the near ceaseless blankets of cloud or gauzy clouds is TOO MUCH PARTICULATE IN THE TROPOSPHERE. It's not coal, its not a gas, it follows the recipe given to fill a laer with submicroscopic metal powder to reflect sunlight to prevent global warming. Too bad they're not doing it for that anymore. JET CIRRUS EVERY DAY 30,000 ft for 390 of the past 430. That's USAF/NASA's name for it/ Why doesn;t it go away? They say "It's due to a change in meteorological conditions." A circle devoid of content, but they know we'll eat it. We do it all the time.You have a planet sized new problem on your hands - you better look out the window. Every day.

    Why was Sthpersthorm Sthandy, a mere catagory 2, the largest cloud massed hurricane in history at 1,100 miles across? How could it attract that much cloud? Did anyone fail to notice that for hours prior to the main vortex we had that freaky subdrizzle of microdroplets? It should have rained hard for hours before the main part hit. But it didn't. It "Mizzled" - more than a mist; less than a drizzle. That cast sheet surrounding the cat 2 hurricane was full of mizzle. That's it! There's only one possible reason: too much submicroscopic particulate uniformly distributed throughout the troposphere. The only kind of such SMP that could create the largest cloud massed hurricane ever from such a paltry offering is water-loving SMP. This type of SMP would then account for why we have had vast sheets of thin high altitude cirrus-like crud everyday all over the USA, Pacific and Atlantic that usually produce next to nothing and always with mizzle. It's not too much water vapor, is it? so it HAS to be particulate. Where did it come from? Not a volcano... not an armada of smokestacks the EPA never spotted... not sandstorms in the Sahara or collosal duststorms in the Midwest. It did n;t come from some wird band of material we passed through in orbit... that would not prefer the 30,000 ft jet cruise altitude, right? But it just happens to be where we see all those vast white ribbons that started emerging form jet big time in Sept 2011 in this area, earlier elsewhere. But USAF/NASA say its just water vapor, and the vast sheets of slimy faux cirrus that they make and then grows into a huge Sheet is "jet cirrus" - which they say is "perfectly normal." This exact thing has happened nearly every single day right overhead since 9 2011. Often it goes on all day long!
