The world is headed for a mini ice age.  Some of us have been saying it for years and things seem to be going in that direction.

'Snow apocalypse': VIDEOS show Moscow blanketed by flurries, with collapsed roofs & sliding trucks in record-breaking snowfall

Moscow has been hit with the worst snowfall in decades, with freak weather disrupting air travel and bringing traffic to a halt. Several people have been injured as a result of roofs collapsing in the region surrounding the city

The adverse weather struck the Russian capital and its wider metropolitan area on Friday, and snow continued falling for two straight days. A volley of the white stuff this intense hasn’t been registered in the city for some 50 years, with the current record dating back to 1973.


The mountains of snow resulted in the closure of multiple roads across the city overnight.


Heavy vehicles fared especially poorly in the thick snow, with trucks pictured sliding on the roads and failing to ascend even the slightest slope.


Multiple videos circulating online show good Samaritans in SUVs trying to tow trucks across the city – and some even managing to pull that off.




The Moscow Ring Road, the city’s crucial traffic artery, has been clogged with heavy trucks, which in some spots managed to move only a few meters over several hours.


The traffic jam on the Ring Road prompted some motorists to break all the rules and attempt to drive on the wrong side, footage circulating online shows.


Some drivers – and taxi passengers – have given up on their vehicles entirely, braving the weather on foot. Those trying to reach the city’s airports to catch their flights were apparently the most desperate to take this option.


Many who got to the airports, however, discovered that air traffic is also being disrupted, with dozens of flights delayed. While the terminals have quieter than usual lately due to coronavirus pandemic, they were filmed crowded with passengers on Saturday.


The amassed snow has damaged several buildings across the Moscow Region. The roof of a gym collapsed, but luckily it was empty during the incident. Images from the scene show the building filled with snow and pieces of the roof that was completely destroyed.


The snow also obliterated a light hangar outside the capital, while several people were working inside. One person was injured during the collapse, while at least two others were trapped under the rubble.

The scientists I listen to have said for a long time that we are entering a mini Ice age and from what they have said it seems to be following suit much more than the global warming, They said a by-product of entering this mini ice age would be a warming trend for a short time and then it would head cold. Sure appears they are correct. Of course one has to keep in mind they are not talking this change in terms of a few moths or years it takes MUCH longer than that for this to occur.
