Record Cold and Snow

Ottawa hit by coldest snowstorm in more than 120 years, Canada

Blog note. Jesus indicated that ‘fearful sights’ (various natural disasters) would occur leading up to the time known as the Tribulation and Great Tribulation (a combined seven year period of great destruction on earth). Although these types of things have occurred in the past for centuries and thousands of years, they could be identified as the ‘season of the times’ due to the ferociousness of these events. They would be occurring in greater intensity, severity, frequency, size, duration, scope … just like the pains that a women experiences in labor the farther along she is in the labor process. We are in the ‘season of the times’ that comes just before the seven (7) year Tribulation/Great Tribulation period

… And great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (Luke 21:11).

… And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; (Luke 21:25)

… Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken; (Luke 21:26)

… This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. (2 Timothy 3:1)

Jesus is giving a series of prophecies about what to look for as the age of grace comes to a close. These verses are several of many such prophecies from throughout the Bible. 2017 was the worst year in recorded history for the intensity, frequency, severity, duration and occurrence of a large number of severe natural disasters worldwide. Earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, torrential flooding, unprecedented wildfires in unusual places, devastating droughts, excessive/scorching heat setting records everywhere, record snowfalls in Europe and Russia. Snow in the Arabia. This list can go on. Most studied Eschatologists believe these ‘fearful sights’ and massive natural disasters are all part of the ‘CONVERGENCE’ of signs that this Biblical and prophetic age is closing. Most people who study prophecy are familiar with the routine reference(s) made that these things will be like a woman having labor pains that occur in greater severity, frequency, size and duration prior to giving birth. End of note.

Ottawa hit by coldest snowstorm in more than 120 years, Canada

On January 20, 2019, Canadian capital Ottawa experienced its coldest day with significant snowfall in more than 120 years.

The daytime high temperatures in the city reached -19.3 °C (-2.74 °F) with a low of -24.2 °C (-11.5 °F) on January 19, but the city saw less than 5 cm (1.9 inches) of snow. January 20, however, brought over 20 cm (7.8 inches) of snow and daytime high temperature of -17.4 °C (-0.68 °F), making it the coldest snowstorm to hit the city in more than 120 years.

Ottawa’s coldest snowstorm on record is still the one that hit on February 8, 1895, when the city received 45.7 cm (17.9 inches) of snow with a daytime high of -17.8 °C (0 °F).

January 19, 2019 will also stay remembered as residents of Ottawa woke up to -24 °C (-11.2 °F), making their city the coldest capital city on Earth, some 20 °C (36 °F) colder than Moscow and Helsinki.

The intense cold, which collided with a healthy stream of moisture directly from the mild Gulf of Mexico is to blame for this rare occurrence and Ottawa just happened to find itself at the intersection of the two, The Weather Network meteorologists said.
