Historic blizzard in Canada shuts down everything from roads and flights to provincial government offices and schools

Extreme blizzard hits Labrador in Canada in November 2020
Extreme blizzard hits Labrador in Canada in November 2020

We are clearly in a mini ice-age! And the latest example of this always colder temperature blast happened last Tuesday in Labrador, Canada.

While a major cyclone was threatening Somalia, a record-setting blizzard shut down parts of Labrador, forcing the closures of roads, provincial government offices and flights. Moreover, schools closed their doors in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, North West River and the regional College of the North Atlantic campus.

At one point during the storm, snow was falling at an unbelievable rate of 5-10 cm an hour.

As you understand, what experienced Labrador on Tuesday was a real extreme weather event that had already buried Ontario and Quebec in heavy snow last weekend… And drenched Newfounland with heavy rains through Tuesday.

Snow records

Happy Valley-Goose Bay received 75 cm of snow in 2 days. The previous two-day November record was 70.6 cm.

The heavy snow storm also broke Happy Valley-Goose Bay one-day monthly record with 46.6 cm received on Tuesday (previous record was of 40.6 cm).

It is the 5th time in the town’s history, that a 70+ cm snowfall event has been recorded.

Powerful winds

Powerful winds with gusts between 80-90 km/h also made for treacherous travel conditions and prompted Environment Canada to issue blizzard warnings, urging drivers to avoid any unnecessary travel.

    For a third time this week airstrikes generally attributed to Israel hit positions of Iran-linked militia near the town of Albu Kamal, Deir Ezzor province, the scene of numerous air attacks in recent months.

    Israel rarely acknowledged its airstrikes in Syria but it is generally believed it has conduct hundreds of such attacks in recent years to inflict casualties and damage on Iranian and Iran-backed fighters in Syria. Israeli officials have repeatedly said they will not tolerate the entrenchment of the Iranian military in the country. Israel Army and Air Force and Navy all country is in state of war emergency indeed war with Iran is coming before Jan 20 2021.?

    Thailand: Prisoners Exchanged With Kylie Moore Gilbert Convicted Of Terrorists
    Thai officials confirmed that the three Iranian prisoners exchanged with the Australian-British prisoner in Iran were involved in a plot to assassinate an Israeli diplomat in 2012.

    The three were exchanged with Kylie Moore Gilbert, the Australian-British academician imprisoned in Iran.

    Deputy Attorney General of Thailand told the Associated Press that this prisoner exchange was done based on an agreement between Iran and it is not unusual.

    The individuals identified as Saeed Moradi, Mohammad Khazaei, and Masoud Sedaghatzadeh, were convicted in court for attempting to bomb the vehicle of an Israeli diplomat in Thailand’s capital, Bangkok.

    Saeed Moradi, one of the convicts, attempted to throw explosives at the police while escaping and lost both his legs. Images published of him in Iranian media show him in a wheelchair. Why not make deal free Robert Levinson from Iran ?

    Does Trump Have Unfinished Business With Iran?
    The Virginia-based Axios news website produced a stir this week citing senior Israeli officials that Israel’s defense forces had been instructed to prepare for President Donald Trump ordering a United States military strike on Iran before leaving office on January 20. Israel’s concern, the officials said, was Iranian retaliation, either directly or through allies in Syria, Lebanon or the Palestinian territories.

    This is not the first suggestion that Trump has unfinished business with Iran. On November 16, the New York Times reported that the president − on hearing Tehran’s nuclear fuel stocks were twelve times the limits of its 2015 nuclear deal with world powers − raised the option of attacking Iran’s Natanz atomic facility, only to be talked down by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Mark Milley, and others.

    Iran Shoppers Queue For Promised Chickens While Prices Rise.
    The rising price of chicken has become a hot political issue in Iran. Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and Parliamentary Speaker Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf (Qalibaf) have both called for price controls.

    The government says it began distributing up to 300 tonnes (300,000 kg) of chicken daily nationwide from Tuesday in a bid to lower prices. The supply is to sell at 180,000 rials per kilogram for fresh birds and 150,000 rials for frozen ones.

    But actual prices on Wednesday ranged from 250,000 rials to 400,000 a kilo (2.2lbs), with more popular cuts, such the breast or thigh, rising to 600,000 rials ($2.40). These might seem reasonable prices compared with Western countries, but the income of an ordinary worker in Iran ranges from $100-150 a month. Nonetheless, state television carried pictures of long lines of shoppers.

    Shoppers told state television on Tuesday that the cheaper frozen chicken was being distributed only in small amounts and only at selected state-owned supermarkets. PREAPARE PREPARE NOW !

  4. We have told you major quakes are coming with partial elipise of moon and full moon on 29 NOV and 30 , still we are shaking from double full on OCT 2020 and i have driven in the massive snow falls just followed the truck. Of course it was years back. Canada gets very ugly so soon , that is why we stay in BC. Still total lock down we can not come to USA.

  5. The offset of the north American snow loss it is part of the longer cycle if you look at 1700s northern asia you will see less snow fall more churches and old wooden buildings, less in northern Canada now warmer in northern canada colder over eurasia.

  6. This is normal in most other parts of Canada, it happens, actually every winter it happens, than the snow plow goes by your drive way, that happens too and results in lots of cursing.

  7. Doesn’t fit the global warming scam. We were headed for a mini ice age for the last 50 years.
    Minnesota has crazy weather in Winter. -42° windchill. Had that weather before.
    One neighbor went outside, tipped over in his wheelchair, and expired one night. Very easy to die.

    • Another part that is fun. People get out the snowmobiles. People have basements and garages all decked out too. Pool tables, game rooms, and they try and ride it out. The kids can make snowmen, have snow ball wars. It’s not all bad. Easier to track animals you are hunting. Ice fishing. Get the Sorrel boots. Those are worth the money.

    • Don’t forget, if you run out of chopped dry wood, you can chop some more, and dry logs in the oven on warm. I had to do that a few times.
      I also made a kindling machine. I take logs and put them in an old washing machine on the range. Once you drill some slugs into the machine, you go out, open the lid, and take out the splinters into your kindling box. They stay dry enough usually too. You can put splinters into an old sock, add some lighter fluid, and put that under the bigger kindling, and logs. Start up the fireplace or wood burning stove.

      • Our snow storm hit this AM. I use solar. Days like these, you go fire up the generator and invert power to the batteries.
        There are solutions for indoor heat. I use a propane bottle to a space heater. Usually, the wood bruning stove will heat the house, but it is disconnected for the remodeling.
        I can get approximately 72 hours of heat from a 5 gallon bottle. You can get larger BTU propane space heaters for more cubic feet of house. Those little heaters have built in safety devices, anti-tip over, etc. Not expensive. Electric blankets with two controllers, on low heat, and one side only use 17W. Also cheap heat.
