Feb 10th, 2017: Snow Pox

From NASA’s Earth Observatory come pictures of Netherlands with the white pox.

Several fields in Heensche Molen, a hamlet in the western Netherlands, glowed white as though a spotlight
had been shone over them, leaving nearby areas untouched. According to their interpretation, the snowfall
was caused by a drop in temperature that led to the condensation of the tiny droplets of water in the fog
over these areas into ice crystals, which fell as snowflakes.

Yeah, yeah, they’re just trying to prevent a Pox Panic.

Such an incident occurred in December 2007, also in The Netherlands, when a cold fog started to develop
into a thick stratus cloud. Dutch meteorologist, Wim van den Berg, who described the event in a 2007
paper, wrote:
Mixing within the fog caused the temperature to drop gradually to -4 or -5 °C throughout the cloud. The
temperature decrease caused additional condensation into tiny water droplets but also ice crystals. In such
a mixed cloud the Wegener-Bergeron process starts, and ice nuclei grow at the expense of water droplets
with small snowflakes as a result. To start the process, condensation nuclei are necessary, and they are
more widespread downwind of cities and industrial zones. As the snowflakes grow, they start to fall down
and reach the surface close to their production area. The 2007 event caused scattered spots of snow,
about an inch or two in depth.
Got to hand it to them, their denial is well coordinated.

The same happened in January 2017, when these images were taken.
“After many days with fog and/or low clouds and subfreezing temperatures, on January 17 several places
reported snow,” Wim van den Berg confirmed with NASA in an email. “It was very local, mostly west of
industry,” as surface wind was light easterly, “but it did cause some unexpected slipperiness.”

Of course. That's why they got everyone on the same page so fast, they were following the 2007 script.
They don't want the public even suspecting, no less finding out, about the sharks with laser beams.
