More Snow Predicted for Winter Weary States

Ad Feedback

WASHINGTON - Incredibly, 49 out of the 50 states have had some sort of snow on the ground in the past week.

As parts of the U.S. are digging out from last week's snow storms, other regions are expecting more new snow.

Another Week, Another Snowstorm

So far, the winter of 2010 has been like a scene out of the movie Groundhog Day where life just keeps repeating itself.

The snow just won't go away and neither will the airline delays.

With the possibility of 2 to 4 inches of snowy mix on the way to Atlanta, a place where only an inch of snow can cause problems -- Delta Airlines has already canceled hundreds of flights at one of the busiest airports in the country.

"I am trying to book another ticket with another airline," one traveler said. "But they don't pick up the phone or allow me to complete the reservation."

As more snow is expected Monday in Alabama, Tennessee and Georgia, other parts of the country have been devastated by the effects of the huge amounts of snowfall.

In places such as Kansas and Nebraska, the white stuff and blizzard-like conditions led to a few 30 car pile-ups and even one death.

In Texas, the roof of an equestrian center collapsed. And in Pittsburgh, the roof of an ice hockey rink started to come down due to the weight of the snow.

"We just grabbed all the kids, and all the parents were starting to come in through the other end where the roof was coming down and I just ran up and told him, 'Get out! Everybody just get out!'" rink employee Tara Banasick recalled.

This winter has even brought snow to Florida, north of Pensacola.

Normally 40 percent of country has snow on the ground at this time of year. But this year, it's close to 70 percent.

What Happened to Global Warming?

All the cold and snow has global warming skeptics shouting, "Give me a break. Stop with the global warming nonsense."

However, while weather like this can't necessarily be directly tied to a lack of global warming, a top climate change scientist is now admitting to the BBC that the earth actually may have been warmer back in medieval times than today.

Professor Phil Jones is the scientist with the key raw data on global warming and the person at the center of the recent climate change email controversy.

Skeptics say certain leaked emails prove that global warming scientists are manipulating data. And Jones now admits that he's having trouble keeping all of the global warming information organized and may have lost some of the information.

In addition, he now says that there has really not been any statistically significant warming over the past 15 years. It's not something anyone has to tell the people digging out of cold, blizzard like conditions this week.
