To rectify this situation, Earther would like to present the following post that includes a list of other weather records, oddities, and things that an informed individual such as yourself may want to know and otherwise have at the ready.
While your humble correspondent included what he deemed a “fair” amount of facts, stats, and other things to otherwise make the reader understand the gravity of the situation facing the region, a few things were left unsaid.
By focusing on the western portion of the U. S. , the post inevitably left out other parts of the country, to say nothing of significant weather happenings elsewhere around the globe.
You may have seen our earlier a piece on the swing between fire and freezing in the West, but that only told a small portion of the wild weather Americans have experienced over the past few days.
This list is not meant to exhaustive and, in fact, may be obsolete by the time you read it because things are worsening quickly while this page will remain a largely static snapshot.
