Folks in the Canadian Prairies are still digging out after unprecedented November blizzards created 7-foot snowdrifts across Alberta and Saskatchewan, burying vehicles and farm equipment, closing highways, and shutting down schools and businesses.
Roads were shut across Saskatchewan and Alberta due to poor visibility from the blowing and drifting snow on Sunday, and police urged people to just stay home.
Kindersley, Saskatchewan received an accumulative total of 47.6 cm (1.56 ft) of snow over the weekend, making it the city’s largest two-day snowfall in recorded history. Saturday alone saw 35.8 cm (1.2 ft), a reading that smashed the community’s all-time daily record of 21.3 cm (8.4 inches) set on March 17, 1974 (solar minimum of cycle 20)–note, that record is for any day of year, not just for November.
The Kindersley storm delivered more snow in two days than during the whole of last winter, prompting some locals to call it the worst storm they’ve ever seen in the area (westcentralonline.com). The data coming out of Environment Canada are certainly proving that to be true, and while 47.6 cm is the official accumulation, blizzards conspired to create snowdrifts of over 5 feet in height.
At least four other locations in the Saskatchewan also received over 30 centimetres (1 foot) of snow — Prince Albert (37 cm), Codette (33 cm), Limerick (31 cm), and Saskatoon (31 cm)–Saskatoon fell just shy of its all-time one-day record of 36 cm set on Jan 10, 2007 (solar minimum of cycle 23):
The neighboring province of Alberta also received unprecedented November dumps, and it wasn’t just humans dealing with the aftermath — horses had to plow their way through 7 feet snowdrifts in order to escape their riding arena near Burdett:
“Snow will soon become a thing of the past,” the climate scientists reliably informed us — and yet here is this poor bastard in early November, 2020:
The above footage was shot by Lethbridge local Heather Gast, who said that the snow –which began falling on her dryland grain farm on Saturday– continued until she couldn’t believe her eyes.
“It just gradually worsened and worsened over Saturday, and then all day Sunday, it was just blowing and snowing — and it just didn’t give up,” said Gast.
“The way it came in with so much wind, and the size of drifts, was just — it’s nothing like we’ve ever seen before.”
Similar scenes were captured across the Prairies (shown below), in what no doubt will enter the books as one of the biggest November storms in history.
And finally, to the west, rare November snowfall warnings have been issued for several regions of British Columbia, including parts of Metro Vancouver and Vancouver Island. The Environment Canada warnings cover the central Interior including the Cariboo, Prince George and Stewart-Nechako regions, as well as inland sections of the north coast and parts of Greater Vancouver.
Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.
