The end of the huge plume giving us ice
This was a huge plume. It has warmed the East up, giving everybody a false sense of continuing warmth. Natgas prices have hit the bottom. It will soon go away, leaving us with #2 Vortex. I still think we can hit #3 and #4. Or maybe it's all one. Who can tell with the Vortex Follies?
Meanwhile, a closer look at Arctic ice shows it continues to cross lanes. I'm quite happy with my new insight that a major ice advance starts with multi-year ice on the Arctic ocean, to the point where it remains mostly frozen all year. Then ice starts to cover the land.
