As much as $100 million in damages after dozens of onion storage sheds and facilities collapse during the harshest winter in memory.
27 Jan 2017 – The buildings collapsed under the weight of up to 40 inches of snow that buried Idaho and Eastern Oregon,” says this article on capitalpress.com.
“It’s an absolute catastrophe,” said Shay Myers, general manager of Owyhee Produce in Nyssa. Three of the company’s storage sheds and the building housing one of its packing lines collapsed.
An estimated 150 farm- and non-farm-related buildings have been destroyed along with millions upon millions of pounds of onions. That’s because once the onions are exposed to the cold and freeze, they are no good. Continue reading »

Considering that we’re living in a time when news outlets on both sides of the political spectrum are screaming “fake news” about anything and everything written or said by anyone other than themselves, this article and the video before it will come as fantastic news for anyone looking to retire their status as a “climate denier” for good.
If the whole “climate change” debate wasn’t so dishonest, so corrupt, and so fraudulent, once you finally find out where the numbers liberals have been throwing at you for years actually come from, you’d probably die of laughter. Unfortunately, when you consider how many hard working Americans Al Gore must have stolen from to become a billionaire based on a perpetual lie, it becomes less funny. Continue reading »

“This winter is the harshest I have experienced.”
Hundreds of thousands of farm animals have perished in a slow-moving natural disaster in Mongolia and the international aid response has been insufficient, the Red Cross said Friday.
Mongolia has been hit by a devastating natural phenomenon known as a “dzud”, said the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) — a hot summer drought followed by a severe winter.
The combination spells doom for livestock in a country where IFRC said a third of the thinly-spread population rely on animal husbandry for their livelihoods.
Goats, sheep and cows die en masse, unable to graze sufficiently in the warmer months to build up the reserves necessary to withstand later temperatures that regularly drop to -50 degrees Celsius.
More than 350,000 animals have already died, but more than a million deaths are expected, according to the latest available data from the UN mission in the country, IFRC said. Continue reading »

Snow seen in Vietnam and winter hats worn in Bangkok.
Okinawa, a Japanese island inside the tropics, has been engulfed by a wave of cold.
The largest island in the Ryukyu chain is used to a steady 19 degrees Celsius on a winter day and 14C by night – cold enough for a jacket. A maximum of 10C and minimum of 6C needs more than a jacket and these were Sunday’s temperatures, in the rain.
Okinawa is not used to snow, but 100 metres up on the hill snow fell and the temperature dropped to -5C. Rare though snow is, it is not unprecedented: occasional plunges of Arctic air produced snow in Okinawa in 1952, 1964 and 1977.
In northern Vietnam, where mountain farmers are used to 11C in the winter, snow now covers the vegetables growing on the terraces. The same wave of cold air that swept through China arrived in Vietnam on Sunday and Sa Pa, in Lao Cai province, felt a sudden drop in temperature. Continue reading »
