Just a year after The New York Times Sunday Review piece warned of “The End of Snow?,” the East Coast was once again bracing for frigid temperatures and a major snowfall.
The winter storm that struck on President’s Day dumped a foot of snow in parts of Virginia, 4.1 inches near the White House, and 7 inches in Cape May, N.J. Boston braced for more snow, on top of its “snowiest February on record,” according to The Week. The city was already collapsing under the 58.5 inches of snow it got. A ski resort in Carlisle, Mass., had to close from too much snow. Ironic, given the Times’ warning that resorts “may no longer be viable in 30 years” because warming would reduce snow.
