A second arctic front sent temperatures below zero degrees in Denver, Colorado Tuesday; smashing records and bringing inches of snow as forecasters urge residents to prepare for a long and potentially severe winter.
“The second arctic front to slam into Colorado in just two days arrived earlier than expected Tuesday. The accelerated arrival means snow will fall for the morning commute and should continue through the evening commute as well,” reports CBS Denver.
“Several records are expected to be broken including a record low for October 30 Wednesday morning and a new record low for the entire month of October on Thursday when Denver drops below zero,” adds the website.

AOC IMPLODES: Ocasio-Cortez Posts Climate Change Rant While Assembling Furniture, Says ’12 Years Left’
Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez confused countless Americans this week; posting a bizarre rant on social media while assembling furniture that warned the US has just “12 years left” before “the world ends.”

“How many years until the world ends again? We have 12 years left to cut emissions by at least 50% if not more. For everyone who wants to make a joke about that, you may laugh, but your grandkids will not,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
“You look back and you open history books on the Civil Rights Movement, and you see those folks who are protesting… People who are trying to mock and delay this moment… I just feel bad for you,” she added.
AOC ON DC THUNDERSTORM: ‘This is Crazy… The Climate Crisis is Real Y’All’
Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez weighed-in on the recent series of tornados that struck the Midwest before heading towards the east coast Thursday; saying the weather phenomenon is no longer “limited to the great plains” due to climate change.
“The freshman congresswoman began by sharing a video on Instagram briefly showing the conditions outside, as heavy rains drenched the region and prompted a brief, and rare, tornado warning inside the Beltway,” writes Fox News.
“They just issued a tornado watch in DC. Oh no, there’s people stuck outside. We need to get them out! This is crazy,” said the Congresswoman.
“Tornadoes are challenging to link to climate change links due to their nature (geographically, limited, acute patterns, how they form, etc.),” Ocasio-Cortez told her followers. “But we DO know that tornadoes HAVE been changing. They are no longer being limited to the Great Plains, and are shifting to other regions of the country.”
“The climate crisis is real y’all … guess we’re at casual tornadoes in growing regions of the country,” she later wrote on Instagram.
Meteorologist Ryan Maue was quick to point out the legislator’s error.
“The Congresswoman @AOC does not know the difference between weather and climate,” wrote Maue. “Let’s try an easy analogy: Weather is what outfit you wear heading out the door. Climate is your closet wardrobe.”

“I thought this was fake but it’s from @AOC Instagram story. No idea what she means with ‘casual tornadoes’ and how this line of severe thunderstorms is proof of any ‘climate crisis’. It’s just the weather in D.C,” he added.
