Cinco de snow
it's the longest ski season on record at whiteface in upstate NY
I've hiked whiteface but never skied it. With global cooling, the ski season is longer and the hiking season shorter

Whiteface has some unique alpine flora at the summit, and when we got to the summit, there was a guy there whose job was to stand at the top of the mountain all day asking people not to walk on the alpine flora

You could believe that because science is the last thing you and your ilk would want to disturb your world view. For anybody with a slightly more rational world view there is NSIDC (which Trump hasn't quite got around to defund yet). Btw, their data shows a catastrophically low arctic sea ice coverage...

Sounds like communism. 
In Europe all car parks are automated instead of paying an attendant $1 an hour.

indeed, they could just put a sign at the summit, "please do not walk on the alpine flora"

even the warmers at NASA are finally conceding that global cooling is real
Lack of sunspots to bring record cold, warns NASA scientist

news from Boston, where global cooling is having a devastating effect on people's lives
Will The Snowiest Decade Continue?
Additionally, the trend for fall snow across the northern hemisphere has been increasing, defying the forecasts over the last two decades for snows becoming an increasingly rare event. The 10-year running mean of the Boston area snowfall has skyrocketed to the highest level since snow records were kept and that goes back about 145 years!
(snip)
Interestingly, some scientists have stated that increasing snow is consistent with climate change because warmer air holds more moisture, more water vapor and this can result in more storms with heavy precipitation. The trick, of course, is having sufficient cold air to produce that snow. But note that 93% of the years with more than 60″ of snow in Boston were colder than average years. The reality is cooling, not warming, increases snowfall. Note the graph depicting declining January through March temperatures for 20 years at a rate of 1.5 degrees F. per decade in the Northeast!
the snowiest decade on record!
I think we all remember the warmers telling us that we'd never see snow again

of course, they changed the narrative when we started getting more snow rather than less

If the cooling trend continues ("Note the graph depicting declining January through March temperatures for 20 years at a rate of 1.5 degrees F. per decade in the Northeast!"), Boston will be at absolute zero (−459.67° F) in roughly 3,000 years

Of course, the experts cited in the article blamed it on the unusually warm autumn in Siberia.
