HERE’S THE REAL REASON THE LEFT HATES US

Mario Murillo examines and exposes the real reason that the left hates us and why they are on a rampage against us.

HERE’S THE REAL REASON THE LEFT HATES US

By Mario Murillo

The Democratic Party claims to be the party of the poor.  Who can deny that virtually every political office in our most decrepit cites is held by Democrats.

They own the ghetto.   They controlled the government money that poured into the slums.  The human tragedy in the inner city is their science experiment.    The killing fields of Chicago are their debacle.  Speaking of cities…

August 6,1945 was a tale of two cities: Detroit and Hiroshima.  On that day, one was destroyed and the other remained a gleaming, prospering city.  Today, the roles are reversed.

Liberalism run amok, addictive handouts doled out by a criminal enterprise combined to kill natural incentive in the heart of Detroit.

Do you know what a Ponzi scheme is?  Named for Charles Ponzi, it is a form of fraud in which belief in the success of a nonexistent enterprise is fostered by the payment of quick returns to the first investors from money invested by later investors.

Trillions of dollars later, we must admit that the Democratic Party has supervised the largest Ponzi scheme in history.  It is a scheme that can only survive by deflecting blame and distracting from its obvious failure.

If we had given the money directly to the people of Detroit, every citizen would have obtained hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Liberals continue to believe we need to give Detroit more money—we need to tax the rich!  We currently tax corporations at the highest rate in the world!

Liberals still blame racism.  But what could be more racist than to force feed a mindset of victimization and helplessness?  Democrats keep an illusion alive to stay in power.  The poor are their workforce.  The images of their suffering are Democratic photo ops.  Is this the new plantation?  If so, then who are the real racists?

Can you understand why some say leftist ideology is more destructive than a nuclear bomb?

We almost had a president Hillary.  Many have cited reasons why she would have been a disaster—but they have overlooked the most devastating proof:  She spent $1.2 billion—the most in history—on a failed campaign.  Trump spent less than 250 million.  What would she spend on other failed ventures as president?

Now the left is hell-bent on destroying Donald Trump.  What has he done?  Trump cut the US Debt by $68 billion and gained 235,000 new jobs in his first month as president!

The left says Trump is a disaster.  He is a disaster to them because Trump is exposing the lie that keeps them in power–the lie they use to keep us weak and divided.

George Soros is funding destruction because he hates America.  Obama is stoned on his own celebrity and must do all he can to bring Trump down.  The left has morphed into a by-whatever-means-necessary terror cell.  The left is so hate-filled that all sense of decency, open debate, accountability and reason are out the window.

The uppity left in the ivy halls, the button-down collars, hide their radicalism by granting tacit approval to rioters.  The media left have faked news so long that they now don’t remember the truth.  Protestors openly attack free speech and admit that they want to erase our right to disagree.

Women’s groups can be pro-Islam and never notice the glaring contradiction—because the target is white Christians and Jews.  In the mind of the left…”my enemy’s enemy is my friend.”

A strong America will end their dreams of herding us—whimpering and downcast—into a global village.  A vibrant church full of love and good works would end their monopoly on the poor.

God bless America hits them like daylight to Dracula.  Why?  Because a moral reformation would consign the bankrupt anti-God movement to its proper resting place—the dust bin of history.  That is why they hate us

 

The Simple Truth: Government is about to kill America. Only the Gospel will save America

The Simple Truth

The Simple Truth: Government is about to kill America.  Only the Gospel will save America.

By Mario Murillo

 

The Body of Christ is to have a unique influence on America.  From the jump, our founding fathers realized that morality and love of truth would breathe life into the Constitution.  They believed in liberty not license, they believed in freedom not anarchy. They understood that the system of government they created must work in concert with God fearing, hardworking, freedom loving citizens.

The church refuses to face a simple truth today.  That is why we are powerless if the face of our ongoing national destruction.  We must face the fact that government is about to kill America and only the Gospel will save America.  First, let’s face the truth about government.

Ben Franklin said, “I am for doing good to the poor, but…I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it. I observed…that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.”

The leftists believe they are the only ones who care about poverty, racism and injustice.  Secular progressives will say they love the poor.  If so, then they loved Detroit to death.  After 61 years and nearly a trillion dollars Detroit has—by liberal policies—been reduced to a pile of rubble.   The same damage can be seen in any urban area where these programs dominate.

founding-fathers-strip

Obama and his ilk are applying the Detroit formula to all of America and the results are undeniable.  The nation is poorer and heroin addiction had jumped 50% in just two years.  Worse yet, Hillary has vowed to continue these death-inducing policies.

Leftist ideology is attractive to three kinds of people:

  1. Those who do not want to work.
  2. Those who want to gain power by posing as champions for the poor.
  3. Those who feel self-loathing and guilt for their ancestor’s sins.

Social progressives will accuse me of blaming the victim.  I am not blaming the victim—I am naming the villain.  Secular progressives will say they love the poor.  If so, then they loved Detroit to death.  After 61 years and nearly a trillion dollars Detroit has—by liberal policies—been reduced to a pile of rubble.

The church should be a great force for saving America but we have been neutralized. Obama and the media changed the rules about how Christians and government relate.  On the one hand, Obama made it fashionable to bash the church, the Bible and Israel.  On the other hand, he made it wrong for the church to speak out—directly attacking our freedom to preach the Gospel.

Obama’s tactics made the church feel hateful by opposing him.  Many famous pastors let him slide because they did not want to appear racist.  Still others feared the IRS would remove their tax free status.  Now we know we were wrong to be silent.

Paul did not shrink from calling out evil government.  Acts 16: 37 “But Paul said to them, “They have beaten us openly, uncondemned Romans, and have thrown us into prison. And now do they put us out secretly? No indeed! Let them come themselves and get us out.” 38 And the officers told these words to the magistrates, and they were afraid when they heard that they were Romans.”

I believe that evil politicians should fear us.  Paul did not believe that his gospel integrity would be ruined by speaking out. Nor do I believe that my out spoken opposition to liberals is in anyway is inconsistent with love or truth.  For that matter, Christ did not worry that turning over tables and evicting the money changers would ruin His image of love and compassion.

However, our silence had another root in our decreased faith in the Gospel.  We have forgotten its surpassing power.  We do not remember how effective it is in situations just like this.  We have forgotten that it is supernatural.

If we embrace the simple truth that government is a crippling counterfeit of the Gospel.  And if we let God explode a fresh passion for this—greatest of all messages.   We will roar it without apology.  Should we have a bold and fire national declaration of Christ?  I shudder to think what would happen if we didn’t!

As God’s people we must quit showing tolerance for policies that are destroying America even as we shake off any and all embarrassment of the Gospel.   Yes, there have been abuses but I remember what Woodrow Wilson said,  “The proof that the Gospel is divine is the preaching it has survived.”

A NEW WEAPON

After nearly 50 years of preaching I have concluded that there are three skills every believer must have.  I have come to believe that we can turn America around if we fill the churches with believers who possess these 3 skills.   That is how we forged this new weapon…a weapon that took nearly half a century to create.

It is called The Warriors Workshop…a workshop I will teach myself.  Be careful not to stumble over the simplicity of these 3 skills.  I have spent a lifetime narrowing them down.

At the Warriors Worship you will be trained  to own 3 skills:

  1. How to convert someone to Christ.

  2. How to heal the sick.  

  3. How to live in victory.

I warned you about their simplicity…but they are anything but simple.  Their power reminds me of something Winston Churchill once said, “He who enjoys it wields a power more durable than a great king.  He is an independent force in the world.  Abandoned by his party, betrayed by his friends, stripped of his offices, whoever can command this power is still formidable.”

The most dangerous phrase in America

MADNESS copy

The most dangerous phrase in America

By Mario Murillo

Nine innocent people are killed in church for their race!?  It is evil, sickening and demands maximum outrage.

But outrage is the issue with America…we cannot find the right kind of outrage.  “Reverend” Sharpton and white supremacists have the absolute wrong kind of outrage.  If all you can do is foment and incite, you’re just another hater.   Something this heinous demands a deeper look.

America, you are drowning in hate and Satan is laughing.  He knows how effective hatred is.  “Inflame in them hate over a perceived injustice and drive them to insane acts of violence.”

When a black man murders a cop, Satan laughs.  When a cop murders an unarmed black man, Satan laughs.  Both crimes are on his side.  Both evils advance his purpose.

When Dlyann Roof let a woman live so his message of hate could get out, his words to her were, “I have to do it. You’re raping our women and taking over the country. You have to go.”

Recently a man robbed a store in Philadelphia and said, “I am sorry to do this but I have to feed my family.”  His was a far lesser crime with the same root cause.

Have you discovered the most dangerous phrase in America?  It is the words, “I can’t help myself.”

charleston-shooting

Bruce Jenner cannot help but become a woman.  Rachel Dolezal can’t help but become a black woman.  Islamists cannot help but kill for Allah.  And Dylann Roof says I have to do this.  “Right and wrong don’t matter anymore, I have to do this.”

“Do this for the greater good,” is the other lie that Satan uses on us.  Look at Harvard University.  Her name is Sandra Korn. She is a senior at Harvard and columnist for the Harvard Crimson.  She believes that free speech is a threat to the Liberal agenda.

In a recent column, Korn unambiguously insisted that the university should stop guaranteeing professors and students the right to hold controversial views and pursue research that challenges liberalism. “If our university community opposes racism, sexism, and heterosexism, why should we put up with research that counters our goals?” asked Korn in her column.   Sandra Korn can’t help it; she has to silence the opposition.

How can I compare Sandra Korn to Dylann Root?  She wants research destroyed that undermines her goals.  She is a book burner.  Heinrich Heine, the German poet, said, “Where they burn books, they will also ultimately burn people.”

We must see hatred for the colorless, asexual, unpolitical monster that it is.  And the first examination for hate must be self-examination.

If we can see nothing wrong with our group and everything wrong with the other group, we keep hate alive.  Satan laughs because his agenda lives to destroy another day.

Justice cannot be known let alone achieved without God.  Christian, you have a choice. You can see this as a dark hour or as a shining moment for the Gospel.

We are constantly barraged for our stands on morality. But a moral stand is a belief in power.   It says, “I cannot help myself, but God will help me.  I do not have to yield to any urge that is beneath my dignity as a child of the King.”

charleston church

We must push back against the lies against our faith.  The Gospel is not a crutch; it is an engine that drives us to right choices.  And, as I seem to recall, Jesus got rid of crutches, he didn’t hand them out.

No place in America embodies the devastating impact of the phrase “I can’t help myself” like Flint Michigan.  Here is an American city left to die because General Motors and the Unions could not compromise.   Both of these groups used the good people of Flint as a bat to beat each other to death.  GM and the Union survived, but the city did not.  They abandoned Flint because they couldn’t help it.

A minister friend asked me, “Why are you going to Flint?  Didn’t you just come out of a grueling 5 day crusade in Yuba City?”  Not only this, he wanted to know if it was dangerous to go because of this devastating tragedy in Charleston.

My answer was immediate… I asked him if he could think of a better place or a better time for the miracles of Jesus to appear.

Was the Midterm Election victory a sign of America turning back to God?

Turning

Was the Midterm Election victory a sign of America turning back to God?

I am not blindly Republican but I am wide-eyed anti-Democrat.  This is because the policies of the Democratic Party are not policies at all, they are drugs.  Today, they are drug dealers who sell addiction to government.

Like all crafty dealers they offer the drug for free until you addicted, and while you are high, they say “don’t worry about how we are going to pay for all of this.”

The payment comes in the destruction of the family and neighborhood.  On August 6, 1945 Detroit was a gleaming city and Hiroshima was utter ruins from the atomic bomb.  Today Hiroshima is a gleaming city and Detroit is utter ruins from the effect of a slow burning bomb of government dependency.

Secular progressives, like any other Ponzi scheme, must have a constant flow of new customers.  That is why they opened the border to try to create more addicts.

091cdbefa8dd65ce3afcb177d0a7f36b-620x413 

Government addiction is nothing new; it has ruined several empires.   Benjamin Franklin saw it as the death knell of America.  He said, “When the people find that they can vote themselves money that will herald the end of the republic.”

I have tried to understand why Obama would pursue policies that history and common sense show are doomed to failure and in fact they are failing spectacularly right now.   The answer is simple:  He wants to stay in power.

For the last two years I carried a secret dread that I would not even share with my wife…only God.  Obama was reelected.  Just saying that boggled my mind.  How could such a train wreck of a failure be allowed 4 more years?  My answer was simple: a corrupt campaign to addicted voters.

We had every reason to believe that our democracy went away two years ago.  There, displayed before our eyes was proof that we would accept unlimited bungling in exchange for our narcotic of choice.

This is why the midterm election is some kind of miracle.  It is almost like the neighborhood rose up and said I want to go through cold turkey, and told the drug lord “I am going to break my addiction to you!”

pelosi.5.25.10

Jesus said in ‘Matthew 11:17, ‘We played the flute for you, And you did not dance; We mourned to you, And you did not lament.’  This is why you see that look of shock and disgust on the faces of Obama, Reid, and Pelosi, because they are saying “We played ‘War on Women’ and you did not dance, and we played ‘white racist America’ and you did not mourn.”

After seven years of drought Elijah went to the mountain and prayed.  When he saw a cloud the size of a man’s fist and declared “there is the sound of the abundance of rain.”

To those around him who had lost everything because of drought this must have seemed utterly foolish.  It is only a tiny cloud and you are declaring a deluge of rain!    The midterm elections are a cloud the size of a man’s fist.  A nation wants a job not food stamps.  A nation wants greatness not global obscurity.  A nation wants Jesus not Allah.   A nation has just taken a small, vital step toward God.

Standing Against the Storm of Compromise.

 

Ours is not an obscure message that should be whispered in the secret places of society. 

We see things differently at Mario Murillo Ministries, mostly because of the way we were born. While still in high school I preached in the Haight-Ashbury, ground zero for the love and peace movement in San Francisco.  Moving to Berkeley sent us from the frying pan into the fire.  We were planted there for the next ten years.

For most of our early ministry, I rarely stood before an audience that actually wanted to hear what I had to say.  If this message had an iota of human origin, a speck of flaw in its nature or fantasy…the crucible of Berkeley would have blown it to smithereens.

Instead, unexplainable power appeared at each point where the ministry was threatened.  Something out of this world would always step in…providing words, resources, ideas and miracles exactly when we needed them.

Not once in that cauldron of revolution, did we feel the need to rebrand Christ or present a new and improved gospel.

For years there has been a rising tide calling for Christians to “keep your faith to yourself.”  Many modern pastors, including the Pope, have joined the chorus asking Christians, “to tone it down.”

Consequently, we have retreated into a cultural bubble where we do everything but preach the Gospel.  We have entertained, amused, inspired and distracted, but we have not converted America.  Because of this, the average Christian cannot defend their faith, marriage, or the Bible as the inspired word of God.

The original reason that the Church adopted this “indirect approach” was to get society to like us.  What we got was just the opposite.  Our compromised message has fueled greater contempt for the Church.

The media is now maligning the message of Jesus every day.  Francis Spufford said, “They think we believe in a load of Bronze Age absurdities. We promise the oppressed ‘pie-in-the-sky’ when they die; we are too stupid to understand why what we believe is irrational, and we are savagely judgmental.”

Atheists call us a threat to human progress.  Secular progressives condemn us as hating the poor, the homosexual and women.

How is it possible, that after all the work we put into removing the “offensive” parts of our message, that society is even more offended?  The answer is that there is a small but loud faction that hates Christ.  They are having their turn at the microphone because the hostility of the White House.

We violently, totally and utterly disagree with the notion that we should tone down the Gospel in America.  There are millions of innocent bystanders, who have not rejected Christ.  They are simply caught in the middle between haters telling lies, and the misfiring sermons of voices too timid to tell the truth.  We must take our message to these millions trapped in the middle. This is why the answer is not to “tone it down,” but to turn it up!

The same Holy Spirit that outfitted us to face the city of Berkeley will equip us to mount a fresh invasion of our nation.

Now let me get to the goal of this letter.  We have learned through every trial and breakthrough that God does not just give guidance, He also gives a plan.

we-have-a-plan-art-copy

We have a plan for 2017.  I can say without apology, that this plan has come to us from the Holy Spirit.  Again and again, the spirit of God has used events in the Bible as a model for what we should do. The verses below reveal a three-point plan that was given by an Angel to the disciples when the church was gravely threatened.

Acts 5: 17- 20 says, “But the high priest rose up and all who were his supporters, that is, the party of the Sadducees, and being filled with jealousy and indignation and rage, 18 They seized and arrested the apostles (special messengers) and put them in the public jail. 19 But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and, leading them out, said, 20 “Go, take your stand in the temple courts and declare to the people the whole doctrine concerning this Life” (the eternal life which Christ revealed.)

Embedded in those simple words, are our instructions for 2017.  Follow me as I describe to you the plan for touching America this year.

1. Take a stand. We cannot judge other ministries.  We can only answer for what God asks us to do.  He has ordered us to take a stand.  There is no confusion about what the Angel is asking the men of God to do.  He is telling them to stake their ground in their nation.  This is not just a physical act; it is also moral and spiritual. We must take a stand against Satan’s agenda for America and we must take a stand for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We take a stand because we belong in the national conversation.  America has a drug, divorce, suicide, anger, and atheism problem.  Our voice needs to be heard because we carry the most immediate and effective cure for everything that is hurting America.  The Angel is reinforcing to the disciples that their message is valid and urgent.

last insert

2. Take your stand in the temple courts. Ours is not an obscure message that should be whispered in the secret places of society.  The temple courts were the heart of Jerusalem.  The Angel is blatantly instructing them to raise their voice in the very center of their culture.

In that same way we must go where the people are and where the biggest lies are being told.  The angel gave them an exact location to take their stand and that location spoke volumes to the Apostles.  God is serious about making a difference in the culture.

3.  Tell all of the words of this life. What a scathing rebuke to popular Christianity.  While Christian celebrities scurry to and fro to find buzzwords to replace the core doctrines of the Bible, here is an Angel telling the disciples that they must tell all the words of life.  They cannot leave out a single benefit or demand of the message of Jesus Christ.

How right that Angel was.  There is life in those words.  There is life in the blood of Christ, the cross and the resurrection.  There is life in them so amazing that no mountain of eloquence or cunningly devised sermon can begin to match.

If only we would learn to brave the offense of the Cross in our preaching!  We would find that very soon the supernatural life of God would overtake our preaching and create miracles in people that infinitely surpassed the results of popular preaching.  Society would not care about the demands in our message because of the changes they would see in their souls, minds and bodies.

This is what we will do in 2017.  In city after city, we will take a stand in the heart of that city and tell all the words of this life.

Political Correctness gets a double whammy.

2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

As a child of God, it is urgent that you do not allow lies to control your life. Knowledge is power.

Gun control and global warming would seem to be too entirely unspiritual subjects for an evangelist. These two issues are the entry-level drugs for hyper liberals to invade your privacy and to transfer wealth from one segment of the population to the other.  Through these lies policies can be created that seem to matter to environmentalists and citizens concerned with safety but lurking in the dark is an overreaching government using these lies to invade your privacy.

Today these two centerpieces of liberal legislation were hit with a double whammy: the chief of police from Detroit advocating gun ownership for safety and the undeniable cooling of the earth.  Read on  -Mario Murillo

Detroit Police Chief: Armed Citizens Deter Crime

Image: Detroit Police Chief: Armed Citizens Deter Crime

Saturday, 04 Jan 2014 12:09 PM

By Sandy Fitzgerald

Detroit Police Chief James Craig has an idea for fighting crime — arm more citizens.

“When we look at the good community members who have concealed weapons permits, the likelihood they’ll shoot is based on a lack of confidence in this police department,” said the chief at a press conference this week, The Detroit News reports.

The chief said he believes the financially crippled city’s residents are feeling safer and violent crime dropped seven percent in 2013. But Craig said that he’s changed his mind over the years over whether citizens should be armed.

He said that when he was on the Los Angeles police force for 28 years, California law made it difficult to get a concealed weapon permit. However, when he became police chief in Portland, Me., in 2009 he changed his mind.

“I got to Maine, where they give out lots of CCWs (carrying concealed weapon permits), and I had a stack of CCW permits I was denying; that was my orientation,” Craig said. “I changed my orientation real quick. Maine is one of the safest places in America. Clearly, suspects knew that good Americans were armed.”

Craig said on a radio show in mid-December that there are a number of people in Detroit with concealed pistol licenses (CPL), and he thinks it’s a deterrent to crime.

“Good Americans with CPLs translates into crime reduction,” said Craig. “I learned that real quick in the state of Maine.”

Craig’s stance is unusual for a police chief, but Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police Director Robert Stevenson said that there are many police officers who have no problem when law-abiding citizens have guns, but they usually try to stay out of those discussions.

Craig’s opinion, though, does not stretch to assault weapons, which he has said should be banned. He’s also called for tight restrictions for online ammunition sales, to regulate high-capacity magazines, and for background checks for gun sales.

There were 15 justifiable homicides in Detroit in 2013, down from 25 in 2012, the Detroit News reports. In most of those cases, citizens were defending themselves by killing criminals.

Historic freeze could break Midwest temp records

 Email this Story

Jan 4, 6:21 AM (ET)

By CARSON WALKER


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – It has been decades since parts of the Midwest experienced a deep freeze like the one expected to arrive Sunday, with potential record-low temperatures heightening fears of frostbite and hypothermia even in a region where residents are accustomed to bundling up.

This “polar vortex,” as one meteorologist calls it, is caused by a counterclockwise-rotating pool of cold, dense air. The frigid air, piled up at the North Pole, will be pushed down to the U.S., funneling it as far south as the Gulf Coast.

Ryan Maue, of Tallahassee, Fla., a meteorologist for Weather Bell, said temperature records will likely be broken during the short yet forceful deep freeze that will begin in many places on Sunday and extend into early next week. That’s thanks to a perfect combination of the jet stream, cold surface temperatures and the polar vortex.

“All the ingredients are there for a near-record or historic cold outbreak,” he said “If you’re under 40 (years old), you’ve not seen this stuff before.”

(AP) Ice floats on the surface of Lake Michigan Friday, Jan. 3, 2014, in Chicago. Single-digit…

The temperature predictions are startling: 25 below zero in Fargo, N.D., minus 31 in International Falls, Minn., and 15 below in Indianapolis and Chicago. At those temperatures, exposed skin can get frostbitten in minutes and hypothermia can quickly set in because wind chills could hit 50, 60 or even 70 below zero.

Sunday’s playoff game in Green Bay could be among one of the coldest NFL games ever played. Temperatures at Lambeau Field are expected to be a frigid minus 2 degrees when the Packers and San Francisco 49ers kickoff, and by the fourth quarter it’ll be a bone-chilling minus 7, with wind chills approaching minus 30, according to the National Weather Service. Officials are warning fans to take extra safety measures to stay warm including dressing in layers and sipping warm drinks.

Minnesota called off school for Monday statewide, the first such closing in 17 years, because of projected highs in the minus teens and lows as cold as 30 below. Milwaukee and Madison, Wis., students also won’t be in class Monday. North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple urged superintendents to keep children’s safety in making the decision after the state forecast called for “life threatening wind chills” through Tuesday morning.

And though this cold spell will last just a few days as warmer air comes behind, it likely will freeze over the Great Lakes and other bodies of water, meaning frigid temperatures will likely last the rest of winter, Maue said.

“It raises the chances for future cold,” he said, adding it could include next month’s Super Bowl in New Jersey.
The cold blast will sweep through parts of New England, where residents will have just dug out from a snowstorm and the frigid temperatures that followed. Parts of the central Midwest could also see up to a foot of snow just as the cold sweeps in pulling temperatures to 10 below zero in the St. Louis area.Snow already on the ground and fresh powder expected in some places ahead of the cold air will reduce the sun’s heating effect, so nighttime lows will plummet thanks to strong northwest winds that will deliver the Arctic blast, Maue said. And there’s no warming effect from the Gulf to counteract the cold air, he said.

Even places accustomed to normally mild to warmer winters will see a plunge in temperatures early next week, including Atlanta where the high is expected to hover in the mid-20s on Tuesday.

“This one happens to be really big and it’s going to dive deep into the continental U.S. And all that cold air is going to come with it,” said Sally Johnson, meteorologist in charge at the National Weather Service in Sioux Falls.

It’s relatively uncommon to have such frigid air blanket so much of the U.S., maybe once a decade or every couple of decades, Maue said. But in the long-run the deep temperature dives are less meaningful for comparison to other storms than daytime highs that are below-zero and long cold spells, he said.
“Right now for the winter we will have had two significant shots of major Arctic air and we’re only through the first week of January. And we had a pretty cold December,” Maue said.And so far, this winter is proving to be a cold one.
