Heavy Spring Snow Sweeps South Africa

What has been a very cold Southern Hemisphere winter isn’t over yet…

The South African Weather Service (SAWS) had issued warnings for widespread spring snow this week, and conditions have not disappointed (see below) with even thundersnow noted over the Southern Free State, KwaZulu-Natal and Lesotho.

Weather warnings remain in place for snow, rain and cold, with SAWS issuing a level 5 warning for “disruptive snowfall”.

“As the upper-air cut-off low intensifies, snowfall of a more significant and disruptive nature (as much as 30cm/1ft) should be anticipated over the eastern peaks of the Lesotho Drakensberg mountains, as well as higher peaks of the Eastern Cape, in the Barkly East and Tiffindell areas,” reads a section of the recent SAWS warning.

“Small stock farmers should provide shelter for their vulnerable livestock and cover sensitive crops,” continues the warning.

“The public would also be well-advised to keep jackets and blankets close at hand, as the weather will remain very chilly … The weak and frail will be most vulnerable since their bodies won’t be able to retain their heat as easily,” the SAWS concludes — and just as fears of ‘stage 6 load-shedding’ also mount.

2-Feet Buries Aussie Ski Resorts

After what was a record-breaking start to the season, Australian ski resorts are now registering some major late-season snow storms that, even in spring, are growing their base depths.

Starting with Perisher, another 30cm (1ft) of fresh powder settled overnight Monday, giving a storm total of 65cm (2.1ft).

“Is it really spring? It sure feels like mid-winter to us!” reads the opening lines of a recent perisher.com article. “The trees are covered and we were digging out the Skidoos this morning! The resort is absolutely covered in white, and the powder stashes are aplenty!”

Hotham Alpine Resort received similar totals — 63cm (2ft).

Thredbo saw 53cm (1.74ft).

With Falls Creek adding 52 cm (1.71ft) to its base.

The Aussie continent is coming off the back of a colder-than-average winter–an anomalous chill that is now extending through September for many, and, looking at the recent GFS runs, could actually intensify into October:

Early-Season Flurries Hit Mt Shasta, CA

The recent storm that soaked Northern California also delivered early-season snow to the region’s higher-elevations.

Lassen Volcanic National Park received substantial accumulations, enough to close the park’s highway.

Elsewhere, Mount Shasta “is already looking in early-winter form”, according to activenorcal.com. The Shasta Avalanche Center reported 4 inches of fresh snow at the Old Ski Bowl, posting picture proof on Instagram:

Record Frosts Persist In Europe

Europe’s early and record-breaking taste of winter is persisting, though is still going unreported by a warm-mongering MSM.

Frosts at low elevations are continuing to sweep the continent from France to Western Russia.

Aubusson in central France, for example, suffered its third consecutive September frost yesterday morning — “il siagit d’un record”, according to @lachainemeteo on Twitter (a new record):

With cold weather already engulfing many European nations and with their access to natural gas from Russia cut off, rising expenses and scarce energy supplies threaten an economic “tsunami”.

This is according to Lorenzo Codogno, chief economist at LC Macro Advisors and also visiting professor at the European Institute of the London School of Economics and Political Science, who points out that the worst is yet to come.

“Right now, you have a tug-of-war between the cost-of-living crisis on the one hand, and then resilience in many sectors and aspects of the economy on the other,” said Codogno. “But if you look at the data, it’s like a tsunami is coming.”

Both consumer inflation and industrial production will be hit simultaneously, he added.

Specifically on the energy crisis, Codogno said the level of pain all depends on how much is offset by policy measures, and how much resilience is in the system: “For instance, there’s still a lot of savings in the system, and that can be used to support consumption. But we don’t know how much, and figuring that out depends on confidence, which is weakening fast.”

The longer and colder this coming winter is, the more vulnerable Europeans will be to not only higher gas prices but also to outright shortages, i.e. blackouts. The poorest, as always, will suffer the first and the most, and with such a crippling squeeze on living standards, that’s practically everyone.

Meanwhile, and as the peasants choose between heating and eating, Lord of the climate hucksters, Al –fat squirrel– Gore, is about to become the world’s first carbon-trading billionaire. If folk haven’t clocked on to the ruse by now then I’m afraid it’s too late. The asleep are now trapped paying through the nose for their energy (and the rest), and there’s little capacity to escape.

Grain Prices Soar On Ukraine News

Global wheat and corn futures surged Tuesday after news broke that occupied regions of Ukraine –likely prompted by Moscow– said they planned to hold referendums over the coming weekend on joining Russia — another indication that the conflict could be approaching its end game.

European futures led the charge, with Euronext milling wheat December contract hitting a high of €339.75/mt, up €14 on Monday’s settlement, as reported by agricensus.com. Euronext corn hit a high of €331.75/mt, up €8.25/mt on Monday’s settlement, while in the US, CME Kansas HRW futures for December were up 46 c/bu, or 5%, at $9.56/bu.

“Referendums to join Russia in occupied regions of Ukraine revive supply concerns,” one market watcher said.

Since August, the flow of grains from Ukraine has increased thanks to a UN-brokered grain corridor from the ports of Pivdennyi, Odesa and Chornomorsk in the Black Sea, relieving some of the pressure on international markets.

“Either the sea [route] shuts down or more acres are lost next year,” said another source, should the urgent referendum fall in favor of said regions –Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhzhia– joining Russia.

Many of the regions have seen Ukrainian forces make territorial gains in recent days, and western analysts see Moscow’s move as a calculated attempt to stem further advances. This proposal was the same deployed during the annexation of Crimea, with Russian politicians arguing that a vote in favor of joining Russia would mean any further Ukrainian attacks in the aforementioned four regions would be deemed an attack on Russia, rather than a counter offensive on occupied Ukraine.

“After the amendments to the constitution of our state, no future leader of Russia, no official, will be able to reverse these decisions,” the deputy chairman of Russia’s Security Council, Dmitry Medvedev, said Tuesday.

However, and as pointed out by the AgriCensus article, it remains to be seen if the occupation authorities have enough structural control to mount a referendum.

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING in line with historically low solar activitycloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among many other forcings, including the impending release of the Beaufort Gyre).

    Since the sun is in a building or ramp up phase,
    an early and aggressive winter makes
    one wonders what will happen if the sun goes dormant for a decade. We need to get a tax exemption for green houses since the governments incompetence or criminal nature has brought us possibly to the brink of starvation.

    1. Paul40

      The sun is entering a Grand Solar Minimum, not an increase in activity.


    although i dont believe in fascism i think everyone who is deliberately spreading this fake global warming/co2 nonsense should be arrested and put behind bars because they will be responsible for 1000’s of old peoples deaths this winter and beyond..its premeditated manslaughter without question

  3. John Galt

    @Mystic’s Mystic: They give an amount for solar installation, so why not for greenhouses. The trucks are already running less and less, it makes sense to grow our own food.

  4. Mystic’s Mystic

    Well we knew they would come up with something before the election. Russia, China, and the US are one in the same. Russia threatening nuclear activity. Some kind of emergency powers right before getting trounced in the next election? If this happens you know the invasion to confiscate equatorial lands is in high gear.

    Hurricane Fiona Remnants looks to be heading straight towards melting Greenland. Hmm, is it cold enough on the big island to delivery Multiple Meters of snow and ice in the coming week. Betting odds says yes. NOAA Hurricane center says worst hurricane season ‘eva’ was gonna happen. As of tonight, fall will come and stay until next Spring and Summer in Madistan, WI, USA. batten down the hatches, “Winter is Coming” . Wood is stacked, Veggies canned and in rows, Hunting and Ice fishing gear ready to go another Winter Season is upon us soon enough.

    The 4th La Niña ahead?
    There doesn’t seem to be any indication of Prolonged Heat Periods for the South Brazil region in the summer, it can have occasional heat, but fast, moreover, the Spring is delayed aprox 3 weeks.
    I wonder what the Australian summer will be like, and the countries in the Hem. North should take the ‘ABSENCE’ of Global Warming more seriously.
    The most fortunate will have Global Warming, the poor will not!
    -Video: Made by a meteorologist located in the coldest part of southern Brazil about La Niña predominate in Summer.

    Food and energy means nothing when Russia starts destroying the corrupt Wests intrusion on their sovereignty.

    For anyone who has taken note of any of my previos posts will know that this is what ive been trying to advise of.

    I find the Hopi indians prophecies to be true.
    And this is the big one theyve been waiting for.
    Its the final one before the Blue Katchina arrives in the Plaza for all to see.
    Its over for the U.S.And Europe.
    And the majority of the world as Carl Jung saw in one of his visions.
    No use running from the truth.
    Theres nowhere to run now.

    Any prepping will seem like a completely useless venture.

  8. Deb

    If you don’t do any prepping, you will have to kill preppers to survive- if you can.

    Choose this day whom you will serve, but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.

    1. Electroverse Non-secular Mingle

      We don’t need to do any prepping. We just need to pray. And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.

      Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds!

      Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.

      And the Lord God made for Adam and for his wife garments of skins and clothed them.

      Thou shalt not kill. [I think that recommendation is in there somewhere too.]

      1. Deb

        Paul said it better than I can:

        Philippians Chapter 1
        15 Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife (sarcastically); and some also of good will:
        16 The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds:
        17 But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defense of the gospel.

        18 What then? notwithstanding, every way, WHETHER IN PRETENCE OR IN TRUTH, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice.

        So thank you for doing my job for me.

      2. Deb

        Even Satan can quote the Bible. He did so when he tempted Jesus Christ in the wilderness (see Matthew 4:6).

        But Jesus said unto him,”It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.”

        God never says that we should sit on our lazy butts while He shovels caviar into our mouths.

        Do what you are able to do for yourself. After that point, you can trust in Him to care for you.

        But if you have never taken the time to know Him, to recognize His voice and His cues, you may very well miss out on the blessings He has for you.

        For His ways are higher than our ways, and they are different from our ways, and His directions often seem counterintuitive.

        If you are used to making your own decisions and going your own way, even if you cry out to God in a crisis and He answers you, you may be unwilling to follow His directions.

        Trust and understanding take time to build. Start now with the little things, so you will be ready when the big things happen.

        Sparrows, not ravens.

          Oops! “Fowls of the air…”

    2. Church Lady Logos

      Church Lady, you seem to be one of those highly selective pick and choose christians likely depending on what shows up in your “Depend{s)” diaper on any day of the week.

      1. Deb

        I pick the things that are appropriate to the given circumstances. The Bible addresses practically every circumstance a human will be called upon to face in this life.

        Circumstances can be contradictory, and therefore the advice that’s applicable may also seem contradictory.

        I have been studying the Bible–reading it, reading about it, listening to a wide variety of people preach and teach on it, applying it to my life, asking the Holy Spirit to help me understand it–for 38 years, since I got saved.

        I have a pretty good understanding now of what scriptures apply to what circumstances.

        If you are a novice in the use of the Bible, I suggest you seek out someone with many decades of experience to help you. It will make a lot better sense that way.

      2. Deb


        You seem to be surrendering your will more to the unclean spirits lately. I will never stop praying for you, but you need to say no to the power you think they give you if you ever want to get rid of them. You don’t need them–you are a remarkable man in your own right.

    Getting the picture?

    War, what is it good for? With the same elites backing both sides, it’s good for business. It’s good for creating chaos and destruction. It’s good for launching new global organizations, in the aftermath; organizations that exert a level of control and reach that didn’t exist before. It’s good for launching organizations like the United Nations and the European Union and the World Trade Organization—dedicated to Globalism, which in turn is dedicated to planned civilization, in which the individual is demeaned and the group is All.

    Freedom is demeaned; and dominance by the few over the many is hailed as peace in our time.

    OK, this is a real stretch, and I hesitate in even reporting it because it comes from only ONE source.

    I am told that something strange began in Washington, DC mid-afternoon today, wherein a significant number of “high level” people, allegedly “stopped what they were doing, got up and left the city.” This same source says “they went and got family, and left.”

    The same source went on to claim “all calls to any of these people go directly to voice mail; even their cell phones.”

    I have NOT been able to verify this. It is only from a SINGLE source.

    Given what is taking place around the world, I thought I would put this out for your consideration. I CANNOT verify these claims . . . yet.

    UPDATE 5:53 PM EDT —

    Now hearing from additional sources that: “Very senior DoD people” left work suddenly this afternoon. From another source “Top guys at NOAA got up and left early today.”

    UPDATE 6:07 PM EDT —

    Earlier today, the Russian Duma (Their version of the US House of Representatives) voted to change criminal law to cover “looting” “MOBILIZATION” and “MARTIAL LAW.” The upper chamber of their legislature, called the Federation Council, will take up the law changes tomorrow.

    Then, later today, announcements were made on all Russian TV channels that President Putin and Defense Minister Shoigu would be addressing the nation at 8:00 PM Moscow time.

    With that announcement, people INSIDE Russia began FLEEING to the border with Finland.

    The images below show a Border crossing with MILES of cars backed-up to get OUT of Russia.

    In a highly unusual move, after about two hours of waiting for Russian President Vladimir Putin to give a highly anticipated speech, Kremlin sources said it has been postponed until tomorrow.

    Later, the Russian government ordered ALL FLIGHTS into and out of Moscow airports, to be CANCELED. They said it was due to weather, but weather conditions showed 45 degrees and patchy rain, with winds at only 4 MPH. No reason at all to cancel flights.

    Something is very, very, wrong.

    Images from Finland border crossing:

    UPDATE 6:22 PM EDT —

    The following are RUMORS. I emphasize, they are RUMORS!

    1) Putin is starting silent mobilization. Notices are being handed out to conscript in public places in Moscow.

    2) Central Bank Governor Nabiullina submitted her resignation. Nabiullina’s condition from start was no mobilization or she resigns.

    UPDATE 6:23 PM EDT —

    The Editor-in-Chief of Russian Television (RT) just posted on her official social media feed, the following:
    Судя по происходящему и еще собирающемуся произойти, эта неделя знаменует или преддверие нашей скорой победы, или преддверие ядерной войны. Не могу разглядеть ничего третьего.

    ENGLISH TRANSLATION: Judging by what is happening and still about to happen, this week marks either the eve of our imminent victory, or the eve of nuclear war. I can’t see anything third.

    UPDATE 6:32 PM EDT —

    Russian writer and political analyst, Roland Begamov: Putin today refused to take a phone call from French President Macron.

    UPDATE 7:25 PM EDT —

    Now being told that “All western assets are fleeing Russia” and that is allegedly the reason for the huge traffic jams into Finland. NOT VERIFIED.

    This content is for Subscribers only —

    Reports are suddenly coming out of Russia that men are bring blocked from leaving Russia’s land borders with Georgia and Finland, while women are allowed to pass.

    Social media accounts say Russian Railways and airlines are refusing to sell tickets to men 18-65 years of age.

    This comes on the very day that Russia implements what President Putin called a “Partial” Mobilization of the country for the Ukraine military situation.

    In an address to the nation this morning, President Putin outlined why Russia must continue what it’s doing in Ukraine, so as to protect the Russian nation and its people. He revealed that a Presidential Decree for a “partial” Mobilization had been signed and took immediate effect.

    After the President’s speech, Minister of Defense Shoigu took to the TV and made clear the initial call-up will be of Russian military Reservists, totaling three-hundred thousand (300,000) men.

    But Shoigu made clear that this call-up was only one percent (1%) of the 25 Million men actually available!

    Now, men between 18 and 65 years of age are reportedly being denied the ability to LEAVE Russia territory. That, in and of itself, is a massive indication that the “partial” mobilization . . . may not be “partial” for very long . . . . or may not be “partial” at all.

    If Russia intends to conscript far more than the 300,000 mentioned by Defense Minister Shoigu, then the only reason they would have to do that is because a war much bigger than the Special Military Operation in Ukraine, is coming.
