El Nino Warming Signal Showing Up On The Maps That may be more prayer than prediction, but my meteorological spidey sense is telling me January will wind up milder and drier close to home. Exhibit A: I see roughly 9 days in a row with daytime highs ranging from 35-40F in the metro; some 10-15F warmer than average. Considering the next 2 weeks are, historically, the coldest of the year in Minnesota, 40F (above zero) is a big deal. With a predominately west to east flow aloft moisture from the Gulf of Mexico won't fuel any big storms close to home anytime soon. A word to the wise: if you like snow get out this weekend and roll around in it sooner vs. later. Just saying. 240-Hour Snowfall Outlook. The map above is predicted ECMWF (European) snowfall amounts between now and next Friday morning, January 11. A couple inches near the Canadian border, otherwise it's looking like a short-term snowfall drought out there. Map: WeatherBell. 2018 Total Precipitation. Over 40" of precipitation … [Read more...] about Hints of El Nino: Extended 8-9 Day January Thaw Coming
Democratic politics class 9 extra questions
Jason Williams Cincinnati Enquirer Published 9:28 PM EDT Oct 19, 2018 Jeff Pastor has Cincinnati political watchers on edge after the councilman showed this week he is willing to break ranks and render Mayor John Cranley powerless. The Republican on Wednesday teamed up with Council's liberal "Gang of 5" to override Cranley's veto on the budget surplus spending. Ever since, questions have been swirling around town about whether Pastor will quit the GOP and join Council's anti-Cranley progressive coalition. "There's no damn way," Pastor told Politics Extra on Friday. "Sometimes, you’ve got to step out on your own. I love the mayor. I’m not going against him. You’d be a fool to go against the mayor."

Charles Stile NorthJersey Published 10:30 p.m. UTC Jun 14, 2018 After taking questions Wednesday about budget talks with the Legislature, Gov. Phil Murphy couldn't resist taking a swipe at President Donald Trump's vaunted reputation as a sharp-elbowed negotiator. "I’m so impressed with President Trump’s negotiating skills with North Korea that I’ve decided to give the Legislature everything they want in exchange for being nice to me for the next few weeks,'' Murphy said. But in reality, many of Murphy's fellow Democrats who rule the roost in the Legislature haven't had many nice things to say about his $34.7 billion budget, the first installment in Murphy's dream of converting New Jersey into a progressive bastion of the Northeast. The governor has the vision and, he believes, the mandate from voters. But he doesn't have the votes in the Statehouse. That has forced Murphy to adopt a more nimble, pliable, Art-of-the-Deal … [Read more...] about As Phil Murphy mocks Trump’s style, NJ Democrats school governor on the Art of the Deal

By 9:30 a.m. she pulls into a hair salon 45 minutes away, where she is training to be a cosmetologist. She waxes and cuts all day long, making only the money she earns in tips, which on a recent day last month was $8.41.But Ms. Baker does vote. She picked Barack Obama for president in 2008 and 2012. He seemed sincere and looked like a happy family man. But most important, he was a Democrat. Her great-grandmother, who grew up poor in Pennsylvania, always said that Democrats look out for the poor people.In 2016, though, she voted for Donald J. Trump. Yes, he was … [Read more...] about They Voted for Obama, Then Went for Trump. Can Democrats Win Them Back?
