    Snow already?

    So I was planning my weekend hiking trip, in the area I usually like to go. It's all quite high, the base altitude is about 9500 ft and extends to over 13500 in this area. So I checked out the NWS site which lets you get a pinpoint forecast by clicking on the map.

    Honestly, it can snow any day of the year there, but I've never seen it actually forecast this early. Cold nights! Looks like the mountains of Colorado are going to get some snow also (above Aspen area). It's still hot down here, in the mid to upper 90s, but it looks like I'll get a good reprieve from this on the weekend!

    Global Climate Change is going to be very upset about this!

    I move to have "snow" added to the autocensor for the duration of summer

    Oh and global disruption is real and only dummies would think otherwise, there's a difference between climate and weather, read a book

    If realizing that man-made CO2 emissions have nothing to do with global weather patterns makes me a dummy, then call me a dummy. My point is mother nature does what it wants. If it wants to snow in the middle of summer, it will.

    When the weather does not agree with the global warming theory, then "there's a difference between climate and weather, read a book."

    but when the weather DOES agree with with the global warming theory, then naturally the hot weather is a direct result of climate change..right?

    so if its unusually cold, then its just a fluke, and global warming is still true.
    but if its unusually hot, then THAT proves global warming is true..
    ok, got it.

    just trying to keep it all straight!

    I went near a mountain top at June, near the equator, and there was snow.

    Yeah I believe it. The access road into this area doesn't even open until the last week of June most years due to snow. I was there last week backpacking, and there is still patches of snow all over. My thermometer I bring with keeps track of the high and low. First night was 38, second was 34. Didn't snow though, just lots of hail and rain. Colors will start changing in two weeks up there. Tons of sphagnum moss up there also, at least above 10000 where it stays cool.
