It states: “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

The other proteins and formaldehyde serve to activate the immune system and open up the blood-brain barrier. This is NOT a good thing."

Is All the Wild Weather Connected?

This has been a wild year, weather-wise.

In the winter, there was the record snowfall across the Northeast. Record rainfall and floods in Ohio Valley followed in April and May. The Southwest has been plagued by drought for months, while tornadoes have devastated the Midwest and South. Record heat is scorching most of the country this week — just days after snow fell in Hawaii. Meteorologists predict a harrowing hurricane season.

Is some underlying climactic condition driving these extreme weather events? There are two potential candidates: The first is La Niña, trade winds that blow through every five years, cooling the water of the equatorial Pacific Ocean and shifting the jet stream northwest. The second is global warming, the average worldwide temperature increase of 1 to 2 degrees Fahrenheit over the past century that has resulted from the dramatic rise of carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere.

this is a copy of an e-mail I just received, I do have permission to post this and I thought it was a bit interesting considering the things we are seeing and hearing on the news.

Okay,  I just came across some fascinating information today and thought I would share.

I was watching a youtube where Terral03 was being interviewed.  He considers himself an amateur astrologer, only leans on science (as opposed to the myan calendar etc. thank goodness).  He mentioned (in passing) that migrating animals have a substance in their tissues called magnetite and this is the reason for the mass die offs!   I googled "magnetite" and sure enough it is a substance found in migrating animals!!  So Elenin, which is affecting our magnetic feilds is responsible for so much of the freak anomolies we are witnessing, including animal die offs, which also affects the whole food chain.  I just read last night that eagles are starving to death, there are not enough salmon to sustain them (salmon migrate and would have magnetite in their tissue).  In fact a dead fawn was found way up high dangling on some power lines, an eagle tried to carry it off and could not hold its weight!  They are starving and resorting to never before seen measures to eat!

It's all kind of starting to make since to me.  There have been soooo many freak, bizzarre anomalies that are not making their way into the headlines.  I come across them so often I don't even forward most of them.

Massive fish and bird die offs
Huge sink holes opening up, randomly, all over the world
volcanoes erupting at unprecedented rate
constant earthquakes
flooding, drought
crop shortage
solar flares
extreme heat
extreme cold
earth tilting on it's axis...etc. etc.

Could all of this be a result of Elenin?  Remember in revelation, there is a star thrown to the earth...I don't know, I just find it fascinating....perhaps Elenin and the magnetic field is the missing link?Huh?

here is an interesting youtube:  FYI

sandstorms in Arkansas

 Huh

Storms kick up ‘wall of sand’ in northeast Arkansas.
Cotton takes brunt of sandblasting.
‘If they’re bent over and black, they’re usually gone.’


Add sandstorms to the litany of severe weather events piling difficulties on Arkansas’ farmers this growing season.

Extension cotton agronomists and county Extension agents for the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture were checking cotton fields on Tuesday to see the extent of sandblast and hail damage.

“We had a heck of a Sunday and (Monday),” said Tom Barber, Extension cotton agronomist for the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture. “Over the weekend, the northeastern part of the state was hit with a wall of sand with all these thunderstorms popping up.”

The National Weather Service at Little Rock reported a truck was blown over and trees and power lines were downed in Woodruff County on Monday. Hail ranging in size from 1.25 to 1.5 inches was reported in Stone and Baxter counties.

“We had a crew scouting cotton diseases that had to take cover in farmers’ houses,” Barber said. “It just surprised everybody.”

In Mississippi County, Extension Staff Chairman Dave Freeze surveyed a field of sandblasted cotton plants. The young plants were drooped and doubled back on themselves with withered leaves touching the ground. All around loose sand filled depressions in the rows like drifted snow.

“If they’re bent over and black, they’re usually gone,” Barber said of the plants.

Fortunately, the sandblast “damage appears to be isolated,” said Blake McClelland, cotton research verification coordinator. “However, that field in Mississippi County is an extreme case and will probably have to be plowed up.”

Winds pose problems in fight against Southwest fires

By David Schwartz David Schwartz – Mon Jun 20, 12:31 am ET
PHOENIX (Reuters) – High winds posed a tough challenge to firefighters battling wildfires on Sunday in Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, where powerful gusts helped the blazes spread quickly.

Fires in east Texas were scorching thousands of acres, while in southern Arizona the winds powered flames across containment lines set up by firefighters, authorities said.

In Texas, the fast-moving Dyer Mill Fire destroyed 30 homes about 80 miles northwest of Houston and scorched 3,600 acres, said Rae Brooks, a spokeswoman for the Texas Forest Service.

Another blaze, the Bearing fire that authorities say is one of the largest in east Texas history, was burning through about 14,000 acres on Sunday.

The Bearing Fire, which started on Friday, was 40 percent contained, said Richard Reuse of the Texas Forest Service.

In central Texas, seven mobile homes were lost to the Green Cedar Fire in Kendall County, officials said.

The Monument Fire, burning near the Mexican border a few miles south of Sierra Vista, Arizona, spread due to high winds, authorities said.

"The winds were pretty intense, and they did push the fire over our containment lines," said Jamie Geesling, a spokeswoman for the state's Joint Information Center.

The fire jumped containment lines in Hereford, where 50-mile-an-hour winds tore through the area, she said.

The Monument Fire has destroyed more than 40 homes since it began a week ago, Geesling said. It has forced some 7,000 people from their homes.

The National Weather Service had warned that wind gusts could reach as much as 60 miles an hour in several states in the Southwest.

"This is the highest the winds have been since the fire started," said Terry Stemmler, a fire task force spokesman.

The Wallow Fire in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest in eastern Arizona and western New Mexico remained the largest conflagration in the region. It began on May 29.

It has destroyed 32 homes and charred a record 511,000 acres, or about 800 square miles.

Near Santa Fe, New Mexico, a wildfire grew to more than 900 acres on Sunday from 5 acres the day before, and firefighters were unable to build any lines of containment, said Alberta Maez, spokeswoman at the Pacheco Canyon Fire Information Center.

Gusts of up to 50 miles per hour hit the area, but the winds were blowing the flames away from Santa Fe.

I don't know if anyone is following the flooded Mississippi, but I am getting quite concerned...this could be nothing, I just don't know, this is simply an FYI...we have nuclear power plants in Nebraska that are completely surrounded by water and starting to flood!!

Some say there is an awful lot of no fly zones (for airplanes) that have just recently been posted on the gov. Website for this coming week, seems like the flooding along the Mississippi is a MUCH bigger deal than getting reported....the dams are at full capacity with much more water on the way, if these old rickety levees break, God help us all!!!  They say it will result in the worst catastrophe in US history

I agree with you on that... America is not mentioned in end times prophecy. Question is, will our country be destroyed before, after or simultaneously with the rapture?

I am in agreement with this statement.  There has got to be a reason why the most powerful country in the world is not an 'end times' player.
Could it be that they are Babylon, which is destroyed prior to Armaggedon?

Quote
Revelation 17:15-18
15And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the **** sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

 16And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the ****, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

 17For God hath put in their hearts to fulfil his will, and to agree, and give their kingdom unto the beast, until the words of God shall be fulfilled.

 18And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, which reigneth over the kings of the earth.


Plus, everything in Isaiah 47, to me, reeks of the U.S.

Snow Falling in Colorado on Summer Solstice

The calendar says summer starts tomorrow in the Northern Hemisphere. The snow falling in the mountains of Colorado tells a different story.

A storm that has prompted a tornado watch across Nebraska and Kansas today also left 2 to 4 inches of snow in the Rocky Mountains, said Joe Ramey, a weather service meteorologist in Grand Junction, Colorado.

“It is unusual,” Ramey said. “Here it is the last day of spring.”

A winter storm advisory has been posted in the mountains of Colorado above 10,000 feet until 6 p.m. local time, and at least one tornado was reported in Kansas, according to the weather service. The Northern Hemisphere summer starts at 1:16 p.m. New York time tomorrow.

World's oceans in 'shocking' decline

The oceans are in a worse state than previously suspected, according to an expert panel of scientists.

In a new report, they warn that ocean life is "at high risk of entering a phase of extinction of marine species unprecedented in human history".

They conclude that issues such as over-fishing, pollution and climate change are acting together in ways that have not previously been recognised.

The impacts, they say, are already affecting humanity.

The panel was convened by the International Programme on the State of the Ocean (IPSO), and brought together experts from different disciplines, including coral reef ecologists, toxicologists, and fisheries scientists.

Its report will be formally released later this week.

"The findings are shocking," said Alex Rogers, IPSO's scientific director and professor of conservation biology at Oxford University.

"As we considered the cumulative effect of what humankind does to the oceans, the implications became far worse than we had individually realised.

"We've sat in one forum and spoken to each other about what we're seeing, and we've ended up with a picture showing that almost right across the board we're seeing changes that are happening faster than we'd thought, or in ways that we didn't expect to see for hundreds of years."

These "accelerated" changes include melting of the Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets, sea level rise, and release of methane trapped in the sea bed.
Fast changes

"The rate of change is vastly exceeding what we were expecting even a couple of years ago," said Ove Hoegh-Guldberg, a coral specialist from the University of Queensland in Australia.
Fish at market Some species are already fished way beyond their limits - and may also be affected by other threats

"So if you look at almost everything, whether it's fisheries in temperate zones or coral reefs or Arctic sea ice, all of this is undergoing changes, but at a much faster rate than we had thought."

But more worrying than this, the team noted, are the ways in which different issues act synergistically to increase threats to marine life.

Some pollutants, for example, stick to the surfaces of tiny plastic particles that are now found in the ocean bed.

This increases the amounts of these pollutants that are consumed by bottom-feeding fish.

Plastic particles also assist the transport of algae from place to place, increasing the occurrence of toxic algal blooms - which are also caused by the influx of nutrient-rich pollution from agricultural land.

In a wider sense, ocean acidification, warming, local pollution and overfishing are acting together to increase the threat to coral reefs - so much so that three-quarters of the world's reefs are at risk of severe decline.

Disastrous. Unstoppable. Historic. Unprecedented

It looks like the flooding will be bad....Even posted on drudge

http://www.minotdailynews.com/page/content.detail/id/555952/-It-s-a-sad-day----Crest-could-be-10-feet-higher-than-June-1.html?nav=5010


‘It’s a sad day’ — Crest could be 10 feet higher than June 1
June 21, 2011

All words used to describe what city, county and state officials warn is an imminent assault on all residents of the Souris River Valley.

The highest flows ever recorded on the Souris are approaching a city whose defenses are destined to be over run. Can the city hold?

Dikes currently in place, recently improved greatly to combat high flows, are now expected to disappear under the traveling torrent. The amount of water flowing with a vengeance down the Souris River Valley is forecast to inundate Minot to a level seven to eight feet higher than the catastrophic and benchmark flood of 1969.

Saddened with that horrific knowledge, officials announced during a late afternoon press conference Monday that very little can be done to stop the powerful onslaught. Massive secondary dikes that were built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to save much of the town from the previous high on the Souris this year fall far short of defending against the impending and rapid rise of the Souris.

Mandatory evacuations were ordered Monday for all evacuation zones within Minot. Mayor Curt Zimbelman said all affected residents and businesses must vacate those areas no later than 10 p.m. Wednesday. Within minutes of the announcement residents once again began the laborious and hastened work of moving out of their homes for the second time this year.

"It's a sad day in Minot," Zimbelman said at the end of a press conference Monday.

Burlington Mayor and Ward County Commissioner Jerome Gruenberg, backed by a declaration from Gov. Jack Dalrymple, urged evacuations at all points along the river in Ward County. Dalrymple urged citizens to "move in an orderly and not panicky way." Rick Hauck, Corps of Engineers, said the "saving lives" is now what is important.

"It's pretty easy to get to 23,000 cfs, which is bearing down on Sherwood as we speak," said Alan Schlag, Monday. Schlag is a hydrologist for the National Weather Service in Bismarck.

For comparison purposes, the previous peak flow at Sherwood this year, one which caused great concern at all points downstream, was a mere 8,860 cfs.

"Basically, Canada is pouring the coals to releases from dams. Rafferty is wide open, Alameda upped to 1,800 Monday and Boundary was at about 5,000 cfs," said Schlag.

Dalrymple, who conversed with Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall on Monday, said he received assurances from the Canadians that all that could be done to prevent high flows was done. Additionally, said Dalrymple, the citizens of Estevan are already enduring flooding hardships that may soon be experienced in Minot as well.

"It is very serious. Very difficult," said Dalrymple. "You need to protect your services at all costs."

Zimbelman explained that essential city services would be diked and that every effort would be made to keep Broadway open for traffic. To accomplish that, the recently constructed secondary dike beginning at the intersection of University Avenue and Third Street Northwest, which passes under Broadway Bridge and then east along Fourth Avenue toward the State Fairgrounds, needs to be raised approximately seven feet.

As of Monday afternoon no other dike projects or improvements had been decided upon. Limited by time and resources and facing a challenge never before thrown upon the Magic City, it appeared Monday that much of the community would be left to the mercy of a very uncooperative river.

"Let's not forget about the rural areas either. This will be much, much higher than we've ever seen before in history," said Dalrymple.

The flows currently rolling rapidly toward Minot, and even more water projected to follow, is of such volume that it is beyond the comprehension of NWS computer modeling.

"One of the biggest problems we'll experience with this is that it is far and above and beyond any previous experience as far as cfs," remarked Schlag. "Rating curves just don't apply anymore. A person is left to their own devices to come up with numbers."

The numbers were crunched for several hours at the NWS Hydrologic Forecast Center in Chanhassen, Minn., Monday. What they came up with was an initial high of 1,564.3 feet at Minot's Broadway Bridge by Saturday. As early as Thursday evening the river is projected to surpass its all-time high of 1,558 feet. Those numbers, astronomical in terms of flows in the Souris, only reflect the initial blow to be dealt the city and is subject to further increase as the situation develops and hydrologic outlooks project further into the future.

The crowd at Monday's City Hall press conference sat in stunned silence, followed by a few brief murmurs, when it was revealed that releases into the Souris from Lake Darling Dam would be ramped up to "16 or 17,000 cfs by Thursday." Minot's existing dike system laborously protects against 10,000 cfs. The previous high release for Lake Darling prior to this flood event was less than 5,000 cfs. Numbers all along the Souris are similarly stunning, shocking and, ultimately, saddening.

Zimbelman said that there was a possibility of adding more evacuation areas in the coming days and that all citizens should be planning for that eventuality. In the meantime, say city and county leaders, the matter is not if the city will flood, but how soon, how severe and how long lasting the flooding will be.

Let be praying for the people caught in the midst of this. Once again, is this God's hand of protection being removed from our land as we as a nation come against Israel?Huh

Flooding submerges parts of North Dakota city

MINOT, North Dakota (Reuters) – The biggest flood in area history swallowed large swatches of North Dakota's fourth largest city on Saturday, as authorities worked to reinforce levees, protect the city's key infrastructure and care for residents forced to flee their submerged homes.

The Souris River, which flows from Canada southeast into North Dakota, was at least 3.5 feet above the 130-year-old record it shattered on Friday. The river was expected to crest on Sunday to approximately 5 feet over that record and remain there for several days, according to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers spokesman Jeffrey DeZellar.

"The historic flood is hitting. We are working to stem the tide," DeZellar said. "We are mostly working to reinforce emergency levees in Minot and downstream communities. It is very challenging construction."

Authorities were also trying to stop a bridge that collapsed in the middle of the river from crashing into a downriver dam, a Minot Fire Department official said.

Local and federal officials have moved thousands of tons of dirt to construct levees and dikes and laid sandbags to rein in the waters, DeZellar said.

Some tactics have failed, however, and the floodwaters have all but swallowed more than 3,000 Minot-area homes, according to North Dakota Department of Emergency Services spokeswoman Cecily Fong.

"There is so much water, it's up to and over people's rooftops," Fong said.

Officials' attention has turned to displaced Minot-area residents, more than 12,000 of whom heeded the mandatory evacuation call on Wednesday, Fong said.

Some have moved in with friends or family but more than 300 residents were holed up in Red Cross shelters at a city auditorium and Minot State University or at the Minot Air Force Base. Those numbers were expected to increase.

There have been no reported deaths or injuries, DeZellar said.

A second evacuation has been issued in Sawyer, a town of about 400 people 16 miles southeast of Minot, where local and federal officials are working to construct an emergency levee to protect the city from inundation.

"There was flooding down a roadway that started to inundate portions of the town," DeZellar said, adding that the gushing waters complicated construction efforts.

Flood warnings have been issued throughout the region from Burlington, northwest of Minot, through Logan and Sawyer to the southeast.

The massive flooding in Minot has overshadowed temporarily the widening deluge along the Missouri River that threatens cities from Montana through Missouri.

Federal officials have pushed record water releases from six reservoirs along the Upper Missouri River that are near capacity because of a deep melting snowpack and heavy rains.

Those reservoirs have little capacity for additional rain, and record releases are expected to continue through August, causing widespread flooding in Nebraska, Iowa, and Missouri.

Heavy rains across the Souris River Basin left Canadian reservoirs over capacity. Water rushing down from Canada has forced U.S. officials to make record-large releases from the Lake Darling Dam above Minot and other communities.

Snow in July? Read the article but it didn't specifically say that it had just snowed. Seems this might be existing snowpack that just hasn't melted yet? Still, snow on the ground in July is...interesting.

God willing, we can get some on the ground here in the Phoenix area.

Heavy Snow Hits Chilean Desert; Heat Wave in Serbia

http://www.arirang.co.kr/News/News_View.asp?nseq=118003&code=Ne8&category=1

Quote
An unusual cold front last week brought one of the driest places on earth, the Atacama Desert in northern Chile, up to 80 centimeters of heavy snowfall.
The national emergency center in Chile says this is the first time the area has seen this much snow in 20 years.
And due to this, roads were closed and a number of vehicles stranded.
Local media reports say authorities have rescued 36 people caught in the snow.
Plus, other South American countries such as Uruguay and Argentina has also been affected by the cold front which brought sub-zero temperatures.
Meanwhile, in Serbia.. a heatwave has hit the landlocked Central European country.
The mercury soared to over 40 degrees on Sunday which raised alert levels,especially for the elderly.

[Interview : Belgrade resident] "I'm all right, so far. I'm 81-years-old, but I don't feel dizzy or tired. So, I think it's up to how well you can adjust to the heat."

And the local media in Serbia reported on Monday. that at least 10 people have died over the past few days due to the soaring temperatures.

As we all know, the earth is slowly put surely tilting on its axis.

Could this be the cause for all the crazy weather ala snow in the summer we're seeing now?

I can't say that I know anything is tilting. I have no idea if it's tilting on it's axis or not. Undecided So you can exclude me from the "we all know" group.

I'd say it's because of God.

Tornado leaves mile-long trail in South Florida

SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) — Three tornados touched down in Florida as a storm system drenched the state's Atlantic coast, including one tornado that left a trail of damage more than a mile long in a suburban neighborhood, officials said Wednesday. Minor injuries were reported.

The storm system soaked an already-soggy region late Tuesday, leaving behind damaged property, blocked roads and fallen trees.

A tornado with top winds of 120 mph struck Broward County, according to the National Weather Service in Miami.

"You could see the rotation of the whole storm system on Doppler radar," said Dan Gregoria, a meteorologist with the weather service. "It was really strong, and we were concerned about a strong tornado going across the metro area."

Up to 50 homes were damaged in Plantation and Sunrise, though no serious injuries were reported. About a dozen homes were severely damaged, and two trailer homes were destroyed, according to the weather service.

"It really could have been much worse," Gregoria said.

The debris field was strewn with twisted trees and misplaced cars, Plantation Fire Battalion Chief Joel Gordon said.

Neighbors gathered on a Sunrise street Wednesday morning to assess the damage.

Yom-Tiv Assidon picked through the wreckage of his home looking for his family's jewelry. The house's roof had come completely off, dining room chairs had been blown through a front window and the backyard pool was full of debris.

"We were sitting watching 'Dancing With the Stars' and 'The X Factor.' I went to get ice cream, and then the windows popped and we heard a boom. Now there's nothing left," Assidon said.

He took his wife to the hospital to have sutures from a recent cancer surgery restitched, but otherwise the couple was uninjured.

Randa Kader said her husband was in the attic trying to find a leak when her son ran out of his room yelling that the neighbor's roof was peeling off. As he did, the windows in his room blew out.

Kader, her son and two daughters huddled in the living room. "We couldn't find my husband for a little while. We couldn't hear him because of the loud noises," said Kader, 43.

When it was over, a neighbor's house was reduced to just its frame, four trees were broken in half in the yard and a concrete bench was cracked, she said.

"The strength of this thing was just tremendous," Kader said.

Barb McKie said her family had just seen the tornado warning on television when it seemed like the wind was rushing through their home. When it died down, McKie's husband opened their front door to see their neighbor's house missing a roof. He ran across the street to check on the neighbor, an elderly man. The neighbor was unharmed.

"I don't think that poor man knew what was going on. It happened that fast," she said.

"As many hurricanes as we've gone through, my daughter said this was worse than a hurricane," she said.

No injuries were reported in Indiantown, where a tornado with winds up to 85 mph touched down, according to the National Weather Service in Melbourne.

It shook siding and roof shingles off a house, destroyed a barn on the property and blew out the roof and back wall from the VFW post next door, said Martin County Fire Rescue spokesman Bill Schobel.

"We're finding pieces of the roof in the adjacent pasture," he said.

A third tornado with winds up to 65 mph struck Indian River County, causing major damage to one unoccupied home and strewing debris for about a block in Indrio, according to the weather service.

It's been raining in South Florida since the weekend, and the rain was expected to continue throughout Wednesday. School officials in the Florida Keys canceled classes Wednesday due to possible flooding and lingering storms.

BELGRADE, Serbia –  A severe and snowy cold snap across central and eastern Europe has left at least 36 people dead, cut off power to towns, and snarled traffic. Officials are responding with measures ranging from opening shelters to dispensing hot tea, with particular concern for the homeless and elderly.
 
This part of Europe is not unused to cold, but the current freeze, which spread to most of the region last week, came after a period of relatively mild weather. Many were shocked when temperatures in some parts plunged Monday to minus 20 Celsius (minus 4 Fahrenheit).
 

"Just as we thought we could get away with a spring-like winter ..." lamented Jelena Savic, 43, from the Serbian capital of Belgrade, her head wrapped in a shawl with only eyes uncovered. "I'm freezing. It's hard to get used to it so suddenly."
 
Officials have appealed to people to stay indoors and be careful. Police searched for the homeless to make sure they didn't freeze to death. In some places, heaters will be set up at bus stations.
 
Still, 18 people, most of them homeless, died in Ukraine from hypothermia and nearly 500 people sought medical help for frostbite and hypothermia in just three days last week, the Emergency Situations Ministry said.
 
Temperatures in parts of Ukraine fell to minus 16 C (3 F) during the day and minus 23 C (minus 10 F) in the night. Authorities opened 1,500 shelters to provide food and heat and closed schools and nurseries. More than 17,000 people have sought help in such shelters in the past three days, authorities said.
 
In Poland, at least 10 people froze to death as the cold reached minus 26 C (minus 15 F) on Monday.
 
Malgorzata Wozniak, a spokeswoman for Poland's Interior Ministry, told The Associated Press that elderly people and the homeless were among the dead. Police were checking unheated empty buildings for homeless people they could take to shelters.
 
Warsaw city authorities decided to place more than 40 heaters in the busiest city transport stops to help waiting passengers keep warm.
 
City authorities in the Czech capital of Prague set up tents for an estimated 3,000 homeless people. Freezing temperatures also damaged train tracks, slowing railway traffic.
 
In central Serbia, three people died and two more were missing, while 14 municipalities were operating under emergency decrees. Efforts to clear roads blocked by snow were hampered by strong winds and dozens of towns faced power outages.
 
Police said one woman froze to death in a snowstorm in a central Serbian village, while two elderly men were found dead, one in the snow outside his home. Further south, emergency crews are searching for two men in their 70s who are feared dead.
 
"We are getting some 'real' winter this week," Croatian meteorologist Zoran Vakula said.
 
In Bulgaria, a 57-year-old man froze to death in a northwestern village and emergency decrees were declared in 25 of the country's 28 districts. In the capital of Sofia, authorities handed out hot tea and placed homeless people in emergency shelters.
 
Strong winds also closed down Bulgaria's main Black Sea port of Varna, while part of a major highway leading to Bulgaria and Greece from Turkey was closed after a heavy snowfall. Nearly 200 Turkish Airlines flights to and from Istanbul's Ataturk Airport were canceled, and a city sports hall was turned to a temporary shelter for some 350 homeless people.
 
The temperature in Turkey's province of Kars, which borders Armenia, dropped to minus 25 C on Sunday night.
 
The situation was similar in Romania, where reports said four people have died because of freezing weather. There, authorities sent prison inmates to shovel snow and unblock paths leading to a shelter with some 300 stray dogs and puppies.
 
Weather forecasts say the cold snap will continue through the week.

Thousands stranded in Europe by heavy snow

February 2, 2012
Death toll from Eastern Europe's cold spell hits 114 - Minus 26.5 degrees
At least 11,000 villagers have been trapped by heavy snow and blizzards in Serbia's mountains, authorities announced Thursday, as the death toll from Eastern Europe's weeklong deep freeze rose to 114.
Those stranded live in some 6,500 homes in remote areas that cannot be reach due to icy, snow-clogged roads, emergency police official Predrag Maric said. Emergency crews were pressing hard to try to clear the snow and deliver badly needed supplies.

"We are trying everything to unblock the roads, since more snow and blizzards are expected in the coming days," Maric said.
Twenty more deaths from the cold were reported in Ukraine on Thursday, with nine more in Poland and one more each in Serbia and the Czech Republic. Officials said most of victims were homeless.

Parts of Black Sea freeze
Temperatures across the region sank to minus 26.5 F in some areas.
Parts of the Black Sea froze near the Romanian coastline and the rare snow fell on Croatian islands in the Adriatic Sea.

http://theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com/2012/02/02/mexico-reeling-from-climate-extremes-millions-imperiled-by-drought-and-cold/

February 2, 2012 – MEXICO CITY — A drought that a government official called the most severe Mexico had ever faced has left two million people without access to water and, coupled with a cold snap, has devastated cropland in nearly half of the country. Reports that the Tarahumara were killing themselves in despair over starvation, later proven false, spurred residents of Mexico City to collect food and clothing donations. The government in the past week has authorized $2.63 billion in aid, including potable water, food and temporary jobs for the most affected areas, rural communities in 19 of Mexico’s 31 states. But officials warned that no serious relief was expected for at least another five months, when the rainy season typically begins in earnest. While the authorities say they expect the situation to worsen, one of the five worst-affected states, Zacatecas, got a reprieve on Sunday. Heriberto Félix Guerra, head of the Ministry of Social Development,  saw the rain, the first in 17 months, as a guardedly reassuring sign. Among the more seriously affected communities are tribal areas of the Tarahumara indigenous community in the Sierra Madre, in the north. Known for endurance running and self-reliance, the Tarahumara are among Mexico’s poorest citizens.

When false reports of a mass suicide brought on by hunger surfaced recently, journalists and aid organizations poured in to shed light on the situation. “I think it has really become extreme poverty,” says Isaac Oxenhaut, national aid coordinator for the Mexican Red Cross. Mr. Oxenhaut recently visited the Indian communities where, he said, the land was too dry to grow any crops the Tarahumara usually depend on for their livelihood. “They don’t have anywhere to harvest absolutely anything,” he added. Nearly 7 percent of the country’s agricultural land, mostly in the north and center, has suffered total loss, according to Victor Celaya del Toro, director of development studies at the Agriculture Ministry. The drought, which has been compounded by freezing temperatures, has already pushed up the cost of some produce, including corn and beans. The governor of the Central Bank, Agustín Carstens, speaking last week at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, cautioned that it might cause inflation to rise later this year. But government officials have said they do not expect the price of exports to be affected.  Some of the most devastated areas are hard to reach, slowing the flow of aid to a trickle. The Red Cross is sending 70-pound sacks of rice, beans and sugar, as well as winter clothing. “A cargo bus will not fit,” Mr. Oxenhaut said. “You have to do it with four-wheel drives or donkeys, or the people who take it on their backs.” –NY Times

[size=18]Isolated winter: Western Canada struggling with record snow-fall as rest of country goes dry[/size]

http://theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com/2012/02/02/isolated-winter-western-canada-struggling-with-record-snow-fall-as-rest-of-country-goes-dry/

February 2, 2012 – CANADA – Snowfall and snow levels are reaching record levels in Alberta and British Columbia in Western Canada. While many other parts of North America are still struggling to fully open all their lifts and runs for winter2011-12 during an unusually dry winter, the West of Canada has been deluged fairly consistently since last autumn. “This month goes down as one of the snowiest January’s on record. There is unbelievable snow conditions at both Fernie and Kicking Horse with total snowfall at both over 19 feet now. Today alone, Fernie has seen over a foot overnight!!” said an excited Matt Mosteller of Resorts of the Canadian Rockies which runs the two centres. Meanwhile a little to the east and north, over the border in Alberta, with over three months left to go in the ski season, Marmot Basin near Jasper has already received over 12 feet (372 cm) of snowfall which is 93% of its annual average. If the next three months produce even typical amounts of snowfall, Marmot Basin will exceed its all time snowfall record of 529 cm set way back in 1965. Regardless of the numbers, skiers and snowboarders have been absolutely thrilled with snow conditions at Marmot Basin and, to some, it has come as a bit of a surprise, says the resort’s Brian Rode. “There is very little snow on the ground in Edmonton and when some people get to the mountain they are really surprised at how much snow we have. Marmot’s base elevation is very high so the rain that has fallen at lower elevations this winter has been all snow at Marmot,” added Rode. –Fast Track Ski

2/2/12

BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — At least 11,000 villagers have been trapped by heavy snow and blizzards in Serbia's mountains, authorities said Thursday, as the death toll from Eastern Europe's weeklong deep freeze rose to 123, many of them homeless people.

The harshest winter in decades has seen temperatures in some regions dropping to minus 30 C (minus 22 F) and below, and has caused power outages, traffic chaos and the widespread closure of schools, nurseries and airports.

The stranded in Serbia are stuck in some 6,500 homes in remote areas that cannot be reached due to icy, snow-clogged roads with banks reaching up to 5 meters (16 feet). Emergency crews were pressing hard to try to clear the snow to deliver badly needed supplies, and helicopters were dispatched to some particularly remote areas in Serbia and neighboring Bosnia.

On Bosnia's Mt. Romanija, near Sarajevo, a chopper thumped down in the small hamlet of Ozerkovici, where a single nun lives in a Serb Christian Orthodox monastery surrounded by just a few village residents.
