Australia’s ski resorts experience best conditions EVER – with so much snow they had to cancel SKI competitions

The ‘Blizzard of Oz’: Australia’s ski resorts experience best conditions EVER – with so much snow they had to cancel SKI competitions:

Australians are enjoying the best ski conditions for 20 years after record snowfalls buried resorts as spring began.

More than 140cm fell on Thredbo in five days over the past week, a record for September, in what skiers have dubbed the Blizzard of Oz.

By Friday the snow was 233cm deep and still falling, covering slope markers, obstructing chairlifts and forcing patrons to dig themselves out of chalets.

St. Martin: Islanders now fight over the last scraps of food – The Same Unrest, Devastation & Hunger Can Be Expected Worldwide Before & After #WW3 … Only Much, Much Worse!!!

For those who haven’t seen this yet:

Alois Irlmaier foresaw all of this and much more in around 1950 (and he is not the only seer who foresaw the migrant crisis, financial collapse, hyperinflation and civil war, which will be directly followed by WW3):

The Prophecies Of Alois Irlmaier – The Roadmap To WW3 – The 3 Days Of Darkness (Worse Than WW3):

“Everything calls peace, Schalom! Then it will occur – a new Middle East war suddenly flames up, big naval forces are facing hostiley in the Mediterranean – the situation is strained. But the actual firing spark is set on fire in the Balkan: I see a “large one” falling, a bloody dagger lies beside him – then impact is on impact. …”

Surveying Irma’s Caribbean Devastation: “It Was End-Of-World Times…People Are Roaming Like Zombies”

Surveying Irma’s Caribbean Devastation: “It Was End-Of-World Times…People Are Roaming Like Zombies”:

As much of Florida is left flooded and without power from this weekend’s hurricane, the damage across much of the Caribbean goes well beyond water damage and downed power lines with many describing the devastation left by Irma as “end-of-the-world times.”  As one resident of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands told the Washington Post, “it was beyond rough times, it was end-of-the-world times…everything normal to us has been destroyed.”

On St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands, “people there are roaming like zombies,” said Stacey Alvarado, a bar owner who managed to leave for the mainland. Her husband, who is still there, told her Sunday that residents and tourists are in shock. “They don’t know what to do. The island was wiped out. It’s like the walking dead down there.” Other islanders sent social media messages pleading for help, decrying looting and a series of armed burglaries.

“We need help,” wrote St. John blogger Jenn Manes. “We need the United States government to step up. We need military. We need security.”

Lauren Boquette, a 48-year-old restaurant manager on St. John, said his family had barricaded themselves in the bathroom of their home. When they emerged, he said, they saw a scene of total destruction.

“It was beyond rough times, it was end-of-the-world times. Everything normal to us has been destroyed,” he said.

Some of the hardest-hit places were those in the Leeward Islands like St. Martin and St. Barts,
where 11 people have reportedly died.

11 Surreal Scenes From Downtown Miami Last Night That Look Like A Real-Life Disaster Movie

11 Surreal Scenes From Downtown Miami Last Night That Look Like A Real-Life Disaster Movie:

Residents of South Florida woke up Sunday morning to Hurricane Irma making landfall at 9:10 a.m. in the Florida Keys as a monster Category 4 storm with maximum sustained winds of 130 mph.

The monster storm made a second landfall later at 3:35 p.m. near Marco Island as it continued traveling north along Florida’s Gulf Coast. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) expects Irma to continue overnight into Monday before finally losing hurricane strength status.

By Sunday afternoon Irma had been downgraded to a Category 2 hurricane, but the NHC was still warning of an “imminent danger of life-threatening storm surge flooding along much of the Florida west coast.” More than 6.3 million people evacuated from their homes after the Florida governor ordered those in Irma’s projected path to seek safe shelter away from the storm. Curfews for 6:00 p.m. have been declared by local officials in the cities of St. Petersburg and Tampa Bay.

As Florida residents continue to brace for life-threatening storm surges of up to 15 feet, here are 11 surreal scenes from Miami that reminded us of a real-life disaster movie:

Earthquake Lights in Mexico (2 Videos)

Earthquake lights in Mexico – Two videos:

I talk about earthquake lights in Not by Fire but by Ice … and here they are.(See chapter 8, “Earthquake lights and Crazy Snakes.”)

Fox News reported that the quake, the strongest in a century, was accompanied by flashes of green and blue lights shooting throughout the night sky. According to an El Universal story, the lights are a naturally occurring electro-magnetic charge caused by the collapse of the rocks in the ground during the earthquake.

Uh huh. I mentioned that theory in Not by Fire but by Ice. I called it “rocks that go bump in the night.

But as I said,
