US ice storms



Missouri and Oklahoma have sustained great damage. Coats of ice as much as 1 1/2 inches thick have brought down trees and power lines. Hundreds of thousands of people have lost electricity. Tulsa, Oklahoma had 75 fires (mostly from sparking live broken power lines).

The Des Moines Iowa air port is shut down--the de-icers cannot keep up. When a de-icing machine starts at one end of the runway, by the time it reaches the other end, the side at which it started has started to ice up again.

Chicago has had more ice in the last four days than at any time, at least back as far as 1924.

With record-setting cold weather, one has to wonder how people still believe in what the founder of the Weather Channel calls "the global warming hoax."
