May normally is a month that sees rapid snow melt in Alps. But this year May was an unusually cold month across Central Europe and parts of the Alps saw heavy snow accumulation.

A week ago, on May 25, BR public broadcasting reported here how May snow levels at Germany’s tallest peak, Zugspitze, reached a 20-year high at just over 6 meters of depth. The article wrote that experts thought the depth would not rise further.

But that turned out to be wrong.

Highest level since February, 1981

Four days later, on May 29, another 35 cm were added and pushed the depth to 6.40 meters, according to wetteronline.ch here. the website wrote: “Zugspitze: Never so much snow since 1981.” The website added that the snow depth there was “higher than it has been since February 1981.”

What follows is a webcam image of the Zugspitze peak from May 29th:

The following is a chart depicting snow levels at Germany’s highest peak for the month of May. Clearly we see that snow accumulated during the month rather than melted.

Wetterline wrote: “In May, the last time there was a similar amount was in 1980. The previous snow record of the Zugspitze also dates from this year: 7.80 meters of snow were registered on April 26, 1980.”

    Looks like they’re well positioned for June’s records, whatever they are!

    But between now and the winter there is quite likely to be record breaking hot summer temperatures in Europe. And that is what the MSM and indigenous European ‘Climate Scientists™’ will focus on, and give the event full multimedia support. No doubt any anomalous break in the summer warmth will, through evermore complex sophistry, be attributed to some form of the ‘CO2 effect’.

    The slow cooling and expansion of the winter period will not figure in the reporting because that goes against the ‘CO2 is killing the planet’ meme, and the MSM will just report it as “a cool snap”. People will better realize what is truly happening as the energy prices rise due to increasing demand for heating, price of fresh food and wine rises due to crop failures, and are having to buy more cold weather clothing.

    Thankfully there is only 12 10 years left, so till then enjoy the skiing 🙂 🤣
