Historic April Snow-Bob Davis Podcast 822

These days you don’t always believe something is true just because the media says so. Unfortunately for the Upper Midwest, this time they were right. Find out why in Historic April Snow-Bob Davis Podcast 822.

Missouri Storm Chaser Steven Coy

I am especially happy to reconnect with Missouri Storm Chaser Steven Coy. I’ve known Steven since storm chasing more than a year ago in Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma. So when a surprise snow storm hits Minnesota, Coy is the go to guy for me.

A Bomb Cyclone? What’s That?

Furthermore when we hear words like ‘Bomb Cyclone‘ being thrown about it’s time to talk to someone who can decipher the weather jargon and get to root of the matter.

Lots of Snow

Most noteworthy the news is not good for western Minnesota which may face as much as twenty inches of spring snow, according to Steven and the National Weather Service.

Winds Picking Up. More Snow Into Late Thursday

Likewise the weather isn’t good in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul where winds began picking up Wednesday night. With potentially a foot of snow and high winds into Friday.

Spring Is Delayed

Certainly spring is going to be delayed. Again.

Moreover after a winter of extended double digits below zero few welcome a reprise.

Why? Why? Why?

Especially relevant is the question of why this is happening. Is it the magnetic pole drift? El Nino? Are the jet streams breaking up? Is the world about to end. We’ll find out in Historic April Snow-Bob Davis Podcast 822.

Someone Who Knows His Weather

Steven Coy is a very down to earth guy who knows his weather. For someone so young to have several great storm photos and videos to his credit is impressive. Not to mention a lot of miles storm chasing and a boatload of FaceBook fans.

Please God. Can It Just Be Over?

While we claim to be a hardy lot in the land of ten thousand lakes, we just want this to be over.

Gonzo Talk. No prep. No notes. No editing. These are the rules of Gonzo Talk. I’ve done it before, under different names. I kind of like ‘Gonzo Talk’. This is the way I used to do podcasts, but after nearly 500 podcasts you evolve. It seems weird now, to do Gonzo Talk since I have become comfortable with a little more planning, or what I like to call a controlled burn. I know what I want to say, and rather than pussy foot around, I am able to get right to it because I have put some thought into it beforehand. Not so with Gonzo Talk. You start talking and you keep talking until the podcast is over. What comes up, is what comes up. What is said, is what is said. No editing. We start talking about different coffee makers, progressing to Minnesota’s establishment ‘republican’ effort to get rid of the state’s caucus system, and in view of Iowa’s Pride over their caucus system it seems a little statist. What a surprise. Progressing through the primary and caucus wins this weekend for Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. Isn’t it funny how the two candidates winning are most decidedly not establishment candidates. The only candidate that has more potential than Trump to freak the fuddy duddies out in the republican establishment, is Senator Ted Cruz. Just this last week Mister Loser himself suggested breaking the rules he backed to defend himself against Ron Paul at the RNC in 2012. Now Romney is pulling the aw shucks I don’t know nuthin, mister routine. After creating a process that has resulted in unmitigated disaster for establishment republicans, now they want to flush the whole primary process and contest the convention, thus nominating old Milque Toast himself, Mitt Romney. What about sealing off Washington, and forming a new government in Council Bluffs, Iowa? We don’t tell Washington they’re not in charge anymore. We just let them think they’re running things! Wait! Isn’t that kind of the way it is? Or maybe the way it will be? The people are speaking and they are not speaking establishment, on either side of the supposed political spectrum. Of course the tone deaf establishment, democrat and republican, isn’t listening. Why should we listen to them? Hey! I kind of like Gonzo Talk!

Night Train. An Amtrak train going over 100 miles an hour derails and the reason for the crash? Infrastructure. Really? It will be weeks before the real cause of the crash, which killed at least 7 people is known. Yet¬†the ghouls in Congress are already¬†making the most out of a crisis and tragedy by demanding, you guessed it, more spending for ‘infrastructure’. Is that what we really need? Speaking of train wrecks, Jeb Bush, a sort of candidate for the republican presidential nomination, answered a question last week he shouldn’t have, and now he is ‘evolving’ his comments. Bush said he would have supported the Iraq invasion in 2003, if he had been in Congress. No wait, now he says he wouldn’t have, if he knew then what he knows now. Well of course Governor! Bush should have instructed his interviewer to ask someone who actually voted for the resolution, or ordered the invasion. In the process Jeb Bush – the so called ‘smart Bush’ – missed the point; Republicans do not have a foreign policy. Democrats do not have a foreign policy. The President does not have a foreign policy. We’re in a new era with new rules. For one thing, with the US as the world’s largest oil producer, and largest swing producer state, it changes the picture considerably. Second, unfortunately we now know that invading countries, fixing them, and then leaving precipitously is probably not a workable policy. Other than that, no candidate whether democrat or republican has been able to articulate a foreign policy position that makes any sense. A protest in Minneapolis this week resulted in the police using pepper spray, and apparently inadvertently pepper spraying a ten year old. Now the mom wants answers. We want answers to, like why on earth would you take a ten year old kid to a potentially violent protest? Apparently no one has any common sense anymore. The Pope continues to wave the red flag, and when he’s not doing that, he’s genuflecting to communists, or pushing his version of global warming. Joining the world’s biggest useful idiot (the Pope) is the world’s second most celebrated useful idiot Francois Hollande, President of France, giving Raul Castro a rock star welcome to the fourth republic. A former bodyguard to Fidel Castro is telling his story, after years of torture and incarceration at the hands of the communist dictator. While the Cuban people starved, Fidel Castro enjoyed luxury in several estates, drank wine, cavorted with mistresses, and offered rich American movie stars (did I mention useful idiots) holidays at his Bay of Pigs ‘ranche’. We are now being warned of the impending disasters which will be brought by El Nino. Do you know what the effects of an El Nino event are? Do you know how accurate the predictions are?
