Record Cold and Snow

Flagstaff sets all-time daily snow record, Payson receives yearly snow amount in a day, Arizona

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 woman 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.

Flagstaff sets all-time daily snow record, Payson receives yearly snow amount in a day, Arizona

A powerful winter storm dumped record-breaking amounts of snow on Arizona this week, forcing the closure of roads, schools and government offices.

Flagstaff Pulliam Airport in Flagstaff, Arizona recorded 911.8 mm (35.9 inches) of snow on February 21, 2019, setting the new all-time 24-hour snow record for the city. The previous record was 787.4 mm (31 inches) set on December 30, 1915.

The storm dumped a total of 1 023.6 mm (40.3 inches) of snow, 40% of its annual snowfall.

The amount of snow Flagstaff received on Thursday also shattered February’s all-time daily snowfall record of 609.6 mm (24 inches) set on February 2, 1901, and was just 76.2 mm (3 inches) short of setting a new one-day state of Arizona record. Record-keeping in Flagstaff goes back to 1893.

On the same day, Payson received 609 mm (24 inches) of snow, more than it usually receives in a year.

“This was a very cold and highly unusual event for northern Arizona,” said Brian Klimowski, meteorologist in charge at the National Weather Service office in Flagstaff. “We had record snowfall in several locations — certainly a historical event.”

“The storm pretty much came as forecast, but was a little bit heavier in the Flagstaff area,” he said.

The storm closed numerous roads, including nearly a 31 km (50 miles) stretch of Interstate 17
