where i'm from this is pretty run of the mill brahhttp://www.erh.noaa.gov/aly/climatef/seasonsofsnowfall1.htmkeep rocking that confirmation bias though
Snow in the DC NW VA suburbs in October? Never happened before the week of Thanksgiving in my 41 years living here. Not a good omen.
Labeling everything "confirmation bias" is excellent for avoiding all thinking, altogether. If I had slaves I wanted to keep in check, I'd teach them to respond to everything with "confirmation bias."I'm sure the late Romans would have labeled the "radicals" who were pointing to the other side of the Tiber at a hundred thousand torches the night before Rome fell to invaders as people shoring up their "confirmation bias.""These people carefully filter the environment for just the information they want to see," they'd declare, seconds before the Visigoth axe cleaved their necks. The head would still be talking as it was rolling along the ground. "It is possible to see demographic changes of this nature in many positive ways if one keeps an open mind," it would announce as it came to a halt.
It was in the 60's today in the Midwest in the U.S. The forecast for 60+ degree weather for the next few days. Not bad for the end of October. We had a record-breaking hot summer too this year.
Where do you get your info? First snow in October since the Civil War?"Before Saturday, the greatest October snowstorm in metro Hartford dropped 1.7 inches on Oct. 10, 1979 and the heaviest October snowfall in Connecticut history occurred on Oct. 4, 1987 in Norfolk with 9.5 inches of accumulation."Dude, c'mon. I did a google search and in 30 seconds found many examples of October snow on the eastern seaboard.
that doesn't mean there's an ice age that's going to start this year

Tuesday and Wednesday the highs will be in the 70's here in the Midwest in the U.S. Where did I put that suntan lotion? Oh darn, I think I packed it away in my vault!
First snow in October since Civil War is for Washington DC not the entire eastern seaboard...
