DAWG Update

Thought all that arctic ice was gone, didn't you?

The people of Nome, Alaska, know well what it takes to survive the long, cold winter in an isolated town. But a confluence of bad weather and other circumstances has left them lacking the fuel needed to heat homes and power vehicles. Now, America's lone Arctic icebreaker is carving a path to Nome that will bring relief to the city--but it also highlights the critical state of U.S. ice-breaking capabilities.

Never fear, DAWG "lives" on: Hail Could Vanish from Colorado's Front Range, Scientists Say

Future storms along the Front Range may become more intense and produce more hail inside clouds, the team found. However, because those relatively small hailstones fall through a warmer atmosphere, they melt quickly, falling as rain at the surface or evaporating back into the atmosphere.

Riiiight. Assumption upon assumption upon assumption leads to "findings." Science, I hardly knew ye.

Insurance adjusters? Think of the roofing contractors. They'll go the way of a Bain Capital investment!
