Out of season snow is continuing to pile up in Alexandria, MN in what is now officially the areas snowiest October in recorded history.
Eric Ahasic, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said approx. 5 inches (13 cm) of snow blanketed the area on Tuesday, Oct 20, with more powder building Wednesday and Thursday. Looking ahead, the weekend is on course to deliver yet more flurries as the well-documented Arctic plunge hits:
By Thursday morning in Alexandria, an extra 8.2 inches (20.8 cm) had been added to Tuesday’s falls, taking October’s monthly totals to 13.2 inches (33.5 cm) — and it kept snowing throughout the day, too.
“This is … the snowiest October on record as well as the most snow this early in the year,” said Ahasic, adding that for this area, the only Octobers coming anywhere close were in 1951, with 7.1 inches, and 1995, with 6 inches.
With snowfall inching toward the two-foot mark, Tom Anderson, owner of the ski hill near Kensington (located about 16 miles west of Alexandria), said the plan is to open up on Saturday, October 24. As reported by echopress.com, this is the first time that the hill will open in October — previously, the earliest-ever opening date was November 2.
“It sounds like we are going to have a long season,” said an excited Anderson.
“We have the potential to be open for 23 straight weeks.”
That would break the ski hill’s record of 22 straight weeks, he said, adding that 2019 was also rated as one of the best winters in recent years.
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.
