https://www.sott.net/article/409777-US-Government-warns-of-historic-widespread-flooding-Through-May-Food-prices-to-skyrocket-as-1000s-of-farms-are-destroyed

We have never seen catastrophic flooding like this, and the NOAA is now telling us that there will be more major flooding for at least two more months. On Thursday, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration warned that "historic, widespread flooding" would "continue through May". More than 90 percent of the upper Midwest and Great Plains is currently covered by an average of 10.7 inches of snow, and all of that snow is starting to melt. That means that we are going to transition from one of the worst winters in modern history to a flood season that has already taken an apocalyptic turn for farmers all across America. At this moment, millions of acres of farmland are already underwater. Thousands of farmers are not going to be able to plant crops this year, and thousands of other farmers that have been financially ruined by the floods will never return to farming again. This is already the worst agricultural disaster in modern American history, and it is going to get a whole lot worse.

Charlotte, North Carolina, was one of the bigger cities to see some snow accumulate. Tuesday was only the second time since 1915 that the city saw measurable snowfall during the month of April, according to AccuWeather Social Media Manager Jesse Ferrell. The other occurrence took place in 1982.

Colorado ski resorts smash March records for snowfall
« Reply #42 on: April 07, 2019, 05:51:24 PM »
This past March will go down in the record books for Arapahoe Basin Ski Area, Breckenridge Ski Resort, Copper Mountain Resort and Keystone Resort, which all received more March snowfall than ever before.

At Breckenridge, spokeswoman Sara Lococo said March's 111 total inches surpassed the previous high of 98 inches that Breckenridge received in March 2001. That's 13.3 percent more snow than March 2001. The 111 inches also makes March 2019 the third snowiest month on record at Breckenridge and the snowiest month outside of a pair of Januarys. The highest monthly snowfall total on record for the resort was 120 inches in January 2014, followed by 112 inches in January 1996.

At Copper Mountain, spokeswoman Taylor Prather said March 2019's 98 inches of snow was just about 14 percent more snowfall than Copper's previous March high, the 86 inches the resort received in March 2001. This past month also ranks as the fourth snowiest month on record since the resort opened in 1972. It's also the second snowiest month of this past decade.

At Keystone, March's 94 inches of snow was just under 19 percent more snow than the previous record March: March 2011's 79 inches of snow. March 2019 comes in as the third snowiest month on record at Keystone, only behind the 128 inches received in December 1983 and the 127 inches that fell in January 1996.

Hail up to softball size smashes cars in Texas

https://www.sott.net/article/410761-Hail-up-to-softball-size-smashes-cars-in-Texas

Hail the size of softballs and suspected tornadoes caused extensive damage in parts of Texas.

Spring severe weather season is well underway across the U.S. South, with 125 tornadoes already reported this year across the country. In addition to generating some possible tornado sightings, Saturday's storms across Texas also produced some massive hail. Hailstones up to softball size resulted in some dramatic images of both the storms themselves and the damage they caused, including the battered car featured in the video.
