She’s among the deniers, you see, and her state is about to be hit with a storm described as being of “epic” dimensions.

Mainly because the sea ice that normally softens the blow isn’t there because. Well, because it melted. Here’s Rueters:

The storm, moving inland from the Aleutian Islands, was expected to bring hurricane-force winds with gusts up to 100 miles per hour, heavy snowfall, widespread coastal flooding and severe erosion to most of Alaska’s west coast, the National Weather Service warned. 

“History tells that the sea ice helps subdue the storm surge,” said Andy Brown, lead forecaster for the National Weather Service in Anchorage. “With no sea ice there, we could see the full brunt of that 6- to 9-foot storm surge.”

Arctic sea ice this year reached the second-lowest coverage since satellite records began in 1979, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Boulder, Colorado.

So when the predicted hurricane-force winds with gusts up to 100 miles per hour, heavy snowfall, widespread coastal flooding and severe erosion rolls in with the 6-9-foot storm surge, hang tight baby!

I hope you and every one of your neighbors makes it through unscathed with a great story to tell.  Because the rest of us could really use your energy and faith to help save this great creation from the wrath of future storms such as this.

 Truly. Be safe.
