Are you goofballs actually arguing about the weather forecasting 131 years ago?

ROFLMAO...............

Not the forecasting, but why the Pony Express operated by Paul Revere was not able to warn everyone. Why do you think Grover Cleveland was able to beat out Benjamin Harrison in 1892 and get his old job back?

Yes Sir, Oct 10 1888, The temperature dropped from 40 to -30 in a matter of minutes. Those poor school children froze to death in their tracks. They did not even find them until Spring. Especially hard hit were the ones who had to trek uphill to school both ways, with no shoes.

You're fine. I'm still asphalt paving in Eastern WA next week and likely in November too. Nosnoqualmie won't be an issue for quite a while yet, much to my chagrin. 10' of snow by next Friday would be Heaven, except for the work thing...

No just discussing the fact that a large segment of the population thinks everyone wore in fur suits in caves communicating in grunts before facebook was invented.

No, not all, some of us are highly edjumikated.

Someone was complaining that a bad storm hit before Al Gore invented the Internet .........

Of course if anyone read the link they’d have known the storm was actually forecast a few days before it hit.


But let’s not let facts get in the way of the hysteria......... or the humour.


From the Wiki story linked to;

“The weather prediction for the day was issued by the Weather Bureau, which at the time was managed by Adolphus Greely; it said: "A cold wave is indicated for Dakota and Nebraska tonight and tomorrow; the snow will drift heavily today and tomorrow in Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota and Wisconsin.”

That's what barb wire was originally invented for. Traction in the winter. It was a savy cowhand that seen the possibilities of animal control during the low sales months.

Traction? Seriously? Where did that come from?
