    Mudslide traps 500 tourists in Canadian ski resort
    Montreal (AFP) Feb 2, 2020 -
    Some 500 tourists were trapped inside a ski resort in western Canada on Sunday after a mudslide destroyed the access road, local media reported.

    Heavy rains knocked loose mud and debris, and the ensuing mudslide washed out about 0.6 miles (one kilometer) of the only access road to the Sasquatch Mountain Resort, the British Columbia transportation ministry said in a statement.

    It said that clearing the road could take five to six days and urged local residents to stay at home while they waited for the work to be completed.

    "We're pretty much at the mercy of Mother Nature," said Shelby Lim, a resort manager, in an interview with the CBC.

    She added that the resort, which is about 60 miles east of Vancouver, had lost power due to inclement weather but had backup generators.

    Lim also noted that the vacationers could leave the resort via a helicopter service, which cost about $150 per person.

    About 100 people had used or intended to use the helicopter service to leave, the CBC reported, but the rest had decided to stay put and wait for the road to reopen.

    Verifying forecasts for major stratospheric sudden warmings
    https://www.terradaily.com/reports/..._major_stratospheric_sudden_warmings_999.html

    A stratospheric sudden warming is perhaps one of the most radical changes of weather that is observed on our planet. As numerical weather prediction models have improved, including better representation of the stratosphere, an extensive amount of studies have been investigating forecasts for major stratospheric sudden warmings (MSSWs), which affect all layers of the atmosphere, changing wind circulation patterns and space weather effects like the aurora.

    etc

    Sounds like the extremes of this season's NH's (extreme +AO) effects and our Southern Winter (MSSW) just past look to be poking the scientific bears in the labs, finally.
    IMO, get the Strat warming forecast dialed and you have vastly more depth in understanding the complex connections of the atmos.

    Brown study definition
    The expression "brown study" is a fourteenth century British term that started out meaning a dark melancholy mood, but later came to mean a state of thinking deeply about something.

    Their latest textbook is up for pre-order sale - has a 500 citation bibliography. Their information is worthy of consideration, considering how other scientific discoveries are seeing the electrical nature of...nature. This is not a plug thing...just a mention about information out there.

    Mexico has had a big couple of days with Tornados of late. Note the multiple touchdowns while someone casually films...
