Record Cold and Snow

Switzerland sees record November snowfall, almost 710 mm (28 inches) recorded. Broke previous record set in 1959, in the same area 60 (6) years ago.

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.

Heavy snow hit parts of Switzerland over the weekend, November 16 and 17, 2017, bringing the monthly total up to 710 mm (28 inches) in Santa Maria, in the country’s east. This broke the previous record of 690 mm (27 inches), also set in the same area in 1959.

According to the WSL Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research SLF, there was “a great deal of snowfall” across the southern ridges of the Alps over the last three days. As much as 300 mm (12 inches) was recorded in some areas of the country.

As a result, road and rail transport are facing their first major winter disruptions. Ski stations at Saas-Fee and Saas Grund have been cut off. Traffic information service Viasuisse said other roads have also been closed.

For instance, the Stalden-Saas Grund axis in Valais has been shut down, making it impossible to access the ski station of Saas-Fee by road.

Some roads in canton Graubunden, particularly around Davos, Arosa and Silvaplana, were also blanketed by snow. The Rhaetian Railway (RhB) line from Pontresina to Poschiavo is closed this weekend.

There would be risks of avalanches – the third-highest risk level – in most parts of southeastern Switzerland, the agency added.
