Tens of millions of people live in communities that were completely paralyzed by this storm, and it is being projected that the total amount of economic damage done will ultimately be in the billions of dollars.
January 22 also happens to be the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in all 50 states. Since that Supreme Court decision, more than 58 million babies have been murdered in abortion clinics in America. Could it be possible that it is more than just a "coincidence" that both of these events happened on January 22?
In a previous article, I noted that this east coast blizzard was officially given the name "Jonas." It turns out that "Jonas" is actually a Greek transliteration of the Hebrew name "Jonah."
In the Bible, Jonah was sent to the city of Nineveh to warn that the judgment of God was about to come. Some are suggesting that it may not be any accident that a historic blizzard named after this Biblical prophet hit Washington, DC, on the exact anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision.
And without a doubt, this was a whopper of a storm. According to USA Today, some cities broke their all-time records for snowfall from a single storm:
It was the biggest snowstorm ever recorded for three cities — Baltimore (29.2 inches), Allentown, PA (31.9) and Harrisburg, PA (34), the National Weather Service said. New York City picked up 26.8 inches of snow, missing its all-time record by one-tenth of an inch.
In the D.C. area, things were absolutely crazy. Dulles Airport got a total of 29.3 inches of snow, and Baltimore-Washington International Airport got 29.2 inches of snow. Some of the outlying areas actually got closer to three feet of snow, and it could take weeks for transportation in the region to get back to normal.
New York City got absolutely pummeled as well. CNN is reporting that John F. Kennedy International Airport got 31 inches of snow, and New York's Central Park has been buried under 27 inches of snow.
