Denver residents shoveled out from under nearly 8 more inches of evidence of global warming Christmas day.
DENVER -- It certainly made for quite the winter wonderland on this Christmas Day, and provided quite the surprise to residents.
“I think we expected a few flurries and there's probably eight or nine inches now. It's just like Norman Rockwell," said Denver resident Adam Haynes.
Denver officially recorded 7.8 inches of snow on Christmas Day.
The snowfall was a record: were climate change scientists paying attention?
The storm dropped the most snowfall in Denver on Christmas Day in more than 100 years. The previous all-time record for snowfall on Dec. 25 in Denver was 6.2 inches, recorded in handwritten records in 1894.
Meteorologists say the latest storm boosted Denver's December snow total above 15 inches -- about 7 inches above average for the month.
As we have noted, anecdotal evidence is not the strongest proof for or against man-made climate change.
Unfortunately, that's what we're most often treated to by proponents of man-made climate change theory. This tactic seems to have garnered much publicity, and at least one Nobel Peace Prize, for the man-made climate change crowd.
It's hard to argue with success.
Hence, DBKP presents the Denver story of the record snowfall.
If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.
