Another Blast of Snow to Strike Midwest, Northeast

There will be no rest for the snow weary from the Midwest to East Coast as yet another quick-moving system threatens to lay down a swath of several inches of snow from the Upper Midwest to the Northeast on Monday through Tuesday.

An onslaught of winter storms has buried much of the Northeast over the past few weeks. While this upcoming storm is not expected to be an historic event, it can snarl travel, resulting in more flight delays in a winter full of them already.

Residents in Minneapolis, Minn., will contend with snow-covered roads on Monday, while an icy mix in Des Moines, Iowa, will create slick and hazardous driving conditions.

Winter weather will extend through the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley on Monday, and a surge of milder air should allow precipitation to remain mainly rain south of the Ohio River.

The heaviest snow on Monday is expected to fall in Wisconsin, northern Illinois and Michigan, where some locations may receive a half of a foot. Lengthy travel delays are likely in Chicago, especially during the typically busy late-day commute.

Travel across the region on Monday will be slowed by snow, including I-39, I-75, I-80, I-90, and I-96.

The Northeast will feel the impacts of the storm on Monday night and Tuesday. Shovels and plows will be needed again in many areas.

Flight delays are anticipated for many major hubs including Chicago, Detroit, Mich., Boston and the three major airports around New York City.

Interstates 76, 80, 81, 90, 95 and 99 will turn slick for a time on Tuesday.

The snow could once again force administrators to delay or cancel school, adding to the growing list of school cancellations this winter.

While the danger of more roofs collapsing is already high following the rounds of snow across the Northeast, the impending snow will only further heighten the risk.

Slippery sidewalks will once again be a concern as the snow falls and with cold nights and milder days in the wake of the snow, icy patches will develop.

For those in search of warmth, a brief break from the snow and cold is in store for the middle and end of the week.

Simple minds..........Since the 1900's we have become progressively less caring of our environment and humanity in general. Now, we are living in an age where humankind is capable of destroying our planet. Now, we have to worry about the food we eat. Our food is being contaminated by those who seek to feed their greed rather than the nourishment of humans on the planet they share. Without thought, the pesticides being used are killing off the most important tool to our health, BEES. Bees pollinate our crops and without bees...we will starve. So now, what were you worrying about?

There is one practical idea for the geo-engineers to implement. Re-direct a percentage of the melting snow and ice to Sunny California and Texas.

The earth, and it's atmosphere, has been constantly changing
since the creation of the planet. Many things input into the
"equation" of the atmosphere, mankind being only one of them.
All of those interactions give us the atmosphere of the day.
Our planet will continue to change/adjust. Whether we can
adjust to the constant changes of our atmosphere will determine
if we can survive or not. The planet, and it's atmosphere, will
continue on with, or without, us. Yes, we should do our best
to limit the junk we throw into the planet's environment. This
will at least give us a more healthy environment to live in.
However, it is not going to change the constant changes
that our planet, and it's atmosphere, are going through.
Again, like everything else on the planet, we adjust to it.

The politicians know that there is no global warming. This is just a scam to get money. Al Gore and Pelosi have set up carbon credit exchanges they feel will earn them billions. They don't give a rats ass about us!! Wake up America.

Do you really believe that all of the sh*t that we are putting into the atmosphere has no effect on the planet? I am not even talking about global warming i am talking about all of the stuff that is going up. I don't know or care about the global warming freaks that are for or against it, i just know that there is a cause and effect for all actions and all of these emissions can't be a good thing.
