Cali Snow-Stranded; Mallorca Sees 13-Feet Of Snow; UK Set For Arctic Outbreak
Californian’s Still Snow-Stranded
Snow-stranded Californians are still digging out after a “once-in-a-generation” winter storm, with more heavy snow forecast for the weekend.
The state’s popular Yosemite National Park has been closed indefinitely after record-breaking snowfall hit the area.
With Tahoe resorts, such as Palisades, logging a record-breaking 6.4 feet (2 m) of snow in the past 48-hours.
In San Bernardino County, east of Los Angeles, around-the-clock snow removal is underway, though it could take well-over a week to reach some areas, particularly with further feet of snow in the forecast.
California Governor Gavin Newsom recently declared a state of emergency for 13 counties.
The California National Guard has arrived to help with the disaster relief effort underway in the San Bernardino mountains. And Cal Guard helicopters were seen surveying Crestline Thursday, searching for an area to set up sites to distribute supplies.
Many residents remain trapped in their homes, with frozen pipes, collapsed roofs and food shortages the biggest concerns.
Mariam Magana and her family have been snowed in at their Crestline Airbnb for nearly a week: “Our three-day vacation turned into a horrific nightmare,” she said, explaining that their cars have been buried under 7ft of snow.
Mariam has called the county’s emergency line and also California Highway Patrol — but help is yet to arrive.
Another resident shared photos of his nearly six-mile trek through the snow for groceries.
To feed his family of five, he used a sled to transport the supplies.
Heavy snows will return Saturday.
And they won’t be confined to the California mountains, far from it:
The accompanying cold also looks pervasive, forecast to intensify as March progresses:
Mallorca Hit By 13-Feet
As touched on earlier in the week, the Mediterranean island of Mallorca has been hit by feet of rare snowfall.
It turns out that a record-setting 13-feet of snow accumulated on the island’s higher elevations –the heaviest totals since at least 1985 (solar minimum of cycle 21)– after winter storm ‘Juliette’ wreaked absolute havoc across the Balearic island.
An unprecedented 3-feet was registered at lower elevations, and the Spanish holiday island has deployed rescue teams to evacuate stranded residents.
Military emergency units from Spain’s mainland arrived in Palma Wednesday with snow plows and heavy equipment. The army is working with local agencies to clear the dozens of blocked roads and reinstate the power to 3,000+ homes.
Spain’s meteorological agency AEMET has confirmed that 13-feet of snow accumulated in the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range by Tuesday night, describing the totals as “extraordinary”.
Many European nations have been hit by heavy accumulating snow this week: Hundreds of cars were stranded in Croatia earlier in the week after a snowstorm halted traffic and effectively cut-off parts of the country.
Similar conditions struck nearby Serbia, Montenegro and Bosnia.
And returning to Western Europe, Portugal and the Spain –for example– have been reeling under polar cold conditions for over a month now. Here in Central Portugal, I awoke to the 21st frost since the start of February (at an elevation of 200m/650ft). This is unheard of and is seriously hampering my seed-starting efforts.
UK Set For Powerful, Long-Lasting Arctic Outbreak
Fortunately for me, Portugal is set for brief respite next week; however, the likes of Scandinavia, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium and France should all brace for a truly invasive Arctic outbreak starting March 6/7.
Latest GFS runs, though still murky, are offering an ever-clearer picture of what’s in store.
As March rolls on, the cold line will encroach furtehr and further south, re-encasing the likes of Portugal and Spain mid-month:
The snow totals also look exceptional, particularly for southern England, central Germany and the Balkans.
Get ready for ‘Beast From The East II’ hyperbole from the UK tabloids; this time, however, it may be warranted:
All As CO2 Emissions Hit Record High
Despite decreasing global temperatures and increasing global snowpack, CO2 emissions rose to a record-high last year.
Data from the International Energy Agency reveal the biggest increase came from Asia’s emerging markets, in large part due to coal-fired power.
India’s coal production –for example– increased by 15.10 % to 784.41 Million Ton (MT) during Apr’22-Feb’23, according to the country’s Ministry of Coal, as the East continues its industrial advance, capitalizing on a weak, hamstrung and virtue-signalling West.
“We still see emissions growing from fossil fuels, hindering efforts to meet the world’s climate targets,” said agenda-driving, prosperity-wrecking IEA Executive Director Fatih Birol.
The West has an impending power problem — and the U.S. will arguably suffer the most, due its comparably high demands.
Recent reports from both regional and national grid organizations have raised serious concerns re. vulnerabilities in America’s electric infrastructure system: Supply of electricity is dropping while demand is rising, with worries growing that there won’t be enough energy to meet consumers’ needs, especially during extreme winter storms — which are increasing.
A report from the North American Energy Reliability Corp. said it is “concerned that some areas are highly vulnerable,” and identifies the Midwest and Southeast as having the ‘weakest’ power grids.
The Midcontinent Independent System Operator, or MISO, which manages the grid across 15 states spanning the north, central and southern parts of the country, as well as a Canadian province, has foresees big problems on the horizon: “MISO’s top priority is the reliability for the 45 million Americans who count on us,” spokesman Brandon Morris said. “The power system is undergoing significant change, and that presents both challenges and opportunities.”
‘Significant change’, in a nutshell, means a decommissioning of cheap and reliable fossil fuels in favor of expensive and unreliable renewables — all in the name of saving the planet from human prosperity (i.e. CO2 emissions).
Reports from both MISO and NERC raise questions about the future reliability of the grid amid this transformation. More than 4 gigawatts of nuclear and coal-fired generation has been retired across the MISO grid since winter of 2021 alone. To me, shuttering nuclear exposes all this for what it really is — a controlled demolition of the society. If reducing carbon dioxide is truly your goal then nuclear is by far and and away your best bet–certainly in the short term.
Equally telling, of that 4 gigawatts loss since late-2021, next-to-nothing has been setup to replace it — yet consumer demand for electricity has continued to increase, driven by expanding expanding territories and an ill-conceived push for electric vehicles and furnaces.
This is a serious risk to America.
While the East grows stronger thanks to an uncapped fossil fuel allowance, the West is crumbling.
This is modern warfare:
Also, China and India rejected mRNA ‘vaccines’ — and while that will seem a tenuous link to some, I believe it’s pertinent.
20 Thoughts to “Cali Snow-Stranded; Mallorca Sees 13-Feet Of Snow; UK Set For Arctic Outbreak”
Thanks for your spectacular reporting. We both know why this is happening to the western nations. They are presently the most powerful and were the most civilized.
The chosen dont look so chosen unless everyone has worse problems then them. It is only going to get worse until they destroy all of civilization. Then they can put everyone under them.
Have you ever heard of Barbara Lerner Spectre?

Cap, I’m wondering how much you think geoengineered weather is contributing to the snow in California? I see so much fake clouds/haze on a supposed to be clear day anymore, (in the mid-eastern US). It’s as if “they” are not allowing the sun to shine down upon us anymore! It’s very telling when you see a rainbow halo around the sun in the middle of the day, (have pics of that). This truly will be the destruction of our planet. See The Dimming, on GeoenginerringWatch.org. God help us all! Dell Bigtree even had Dane on last week discussing the issue. Very eye opening.
The volcanic eruption of Hunga Tonga Ha’apai is the cause of this extreme cold & snow. They fuck with the weather, worsen things but they don’t cause the weather. I knew this volcano was a planet cooler even tho’ the authorti-ties tried to downplay it. They are trying to con us out of using oil to heat ourselves- that’s the real danger.
True Linda, but it doesn’t explain the excessive amount of spreading chemtrails in the skies above us all over the world.
Here is the actual report from them. Title:
One Atmosphere: An Independent Expert Review on Solar Radiation Modification Research and Deployment
I got this from the Corbett Report yesterday. https://www.corbettreport.com/nwnw511/
They are now talking about what have been doing for 20 years. Claiming our entire atmosphere needs to be regulated by the UN. These people are evil.
It will be worth you time to learn more.
Rainbow halos around the sun are normal for cold-weather climates like we have here in Canada. They’re caused by ice crystals higher in the atmosphere, but in places like California the air normally doesn’t get cold enough to see such stuff. It’s not from geoengineering. Sometimes we see “sun dogs,” a bright light on each side of the sun. More ice crystal stuff. Just an illusion.
Atmospheric temperature inversions also cause “fake clouds/haze.” They’re the cause of mirages.
You can see the airborne particulates over the Pacific Ocean as they roll in over the west coast on Windy.com on the PM2.5 item on the menu. Particulates 2.5 microns. 52 volcanos going off, not just Tonga. That’s above sea level.
The PM2.5 map also shows yellow over the Midwest US and all around the planet. Not man made from geoengineering, from volcanos following solar activity. You can see the SO2 from volcanos on Windy too, right off the West Coast USA etc etc:

Al.. go back in your hole!
Since the “elite” has no allegiance to any country why would they cry when their country of birth collapses, to promote equality on the planet. USA and EU exceptionalism must go and since the $ and € is basically dead currency walking, it is fast underway.
if the “Masters” are truly so afraid og “habitat destruction”already. why would an economic collapse followed by WW3 be an irrelevant solution. Is the mistake not often, that you tend to imagine your enemy being rational like yourself. In some shape or form. They are not they think they work for a higher cause making moral obsolete.
I see the UAH global temperature for feblueraree is back up to + 0.08 from – 0.04 in janrurereee.
It probably means the 3 year La Nina is dissipating.
Thank you for those references, Dirk. I note at the beginning of the current SC the sun was less active for a longer period of time than normal.
Another curiosity is the 1998 and 2016 coincide with the 18.6-year lunar minor standstill. The lunar major standstill coincides with troughs in global temperature variations.
The next major lunar standstill is in very early 2025 so I anticipate global temperature fluctuations to trough closer to that date. More on this later. Cheers.
1998 and 2016 El Ninos.

#11, same pattern.
Cheers Dirk. I have to go to work so have not looked at your reference.
I have been daily watching the tropical cyclones form off the immediate east coast of New Guinea. Water temperature reached 32 degrees C briefly. I like the animated lightning strikes.
I have a lot to learn about plasma and other solar energy influencing with our weather.
I want to understand cause of inflation and shrinking of the Hadley cell, that influence on meridional jetstream and strait jetstream, and the current positive annular Southern mode.
There is no doubt that the UK and much of Europe is about to experience a polar plunge. The Met office is back in denial mode claiming that it’ll all be over by next weekend. I suspect that where I live in Northern Scotland pretty much every day up to the end of March and quite possibly well into April will see below average temperatures, although the lowest anomalies are likely to be next week.
The general situation from the end of next is that areas of low pressure are going to run roughly West to East across Europe. There’ll be mild air to the south and very cold air to the north, producing a relatively narrow band of heavy snow along the boundary between the air masses. The weather models keep changing the exact position of this heavy snow band, with the latest GFS run having it across Northern England, rather than the South as shown in the run highlighted in this article. This is likely to have changed again tomorrow meaning that any model for more than 4-5 days in advance needs to be taken with a large pinch of salt. If 2 or 3 low pressure systems follow the same track, which may well not happen, then parts of England could see almost a metre of snow, as shown in the latest GFS run. Obviously this is a relatively trivial amount compared what there is in parts of California, but even 60-70cm of snow at relatively low levels where it’ll affect people’s daily life is pretty exceptional for England.
According to Tony Heller, this winter n Wyoming has been unusually cold,
“Winter is always long and cold in Wyoming, but this winter has been relentless and there seems to be no relief in sight. We are still having unusually cold January weather in March.”
I’m wondering if the SSW is going to affect the Beaufort Gyre. If the Upper Level winds change that may affect the micro eddies on the Beaufort Sea and cause the Gyre to reverse. That would be a huge disaster for Europe!
What even crazier is that Beaufort Gyyre has not unwound like its normal 7 year cycle.
looks like when it unwinds it will get much colder than now?
Its good to know the Magic words for searches.
