Update (concerning late season snowfall) Read about the Snowstorm
ISAAC TIME UPDATE. 2/20/12
Just recently, I posted a word called “Isaac time”. It was basically how God is going to get the last laugh, that there are things that seem to have gotten to a place where they are just never going to come to pass, promises or situations; but then you are going to discover that God wins and that he will get the last laugh so we are to keep standing and believing.
The update is this: the Lord showed me that there are going to be some late season huge snowfalls, even maybe record snowfalls in different places, not just around the country but around the world and it will be a sign that it’s not too late. That God will have the last laugh. It’s been a very mild winter in most places. There are going to be some huge snowfalls occurring late in the season and it’s going to be God’s sign that it’s never too late, but he does get the last laugh. So be looking out for those and see what they are when they come.
BELOW IS A FULFILLMENT OF THIS PROPHECY. Take this prophetic word to heart in your situations.
Eight inches of snow covered parts of Somerset, Pennsylvania, on Monday. A storm beginning in the Northeast pushed west, covering Spring blooms.
Rare snowstorm hits Northeast
NEW: Snow-laden trees and limbs threaten power lines
NEW: Winter storm warnings remain in effect for parts of Pennsylvania, New York
Up to 16 inches of snow possible in some parts of the Northeast
Low temperatures will continue through Wednesday, CNN meteorologist says
(CNN) — So much for April showers.
A large and unexpected storm came barreling through the Northeast on Monday, threatening to drop more than a foot of snow in some places.
Winter storm warnings remained in effect Monday night for parts of Pennsylvania, New York and West Virginia, according to the National Weather Service.
Earlier in the day, Newfield, New York, was reporting 10 inches of snow, while Ridgebury, Pennsylvania, had 8 inches. More accumulation was expected, especially in higher elevations.
CNN iReporter Quinten Johnson sent in a photograph from Smethport, Pennsylvania, where a sign advertising a spring bazaar was covered in snow.
“We’ve already seen broken branches, and we are worried about the power lines,” he said. “Everyone is shaking their heads and they are like — that is life. Everyone put away their shovels and snow plows and got out their lawnmowers, and it is snowing.”
Heavy snow, rain pound Northeast
The blustery blast follows a mild winter that saw little snow and the warmest March on record.
“The last time we had a big snowstorm across the East Coast was back in October,” when fall foliage was still on the trees, said CNN Meteorologist Rob Marciano.
“This has been a crazy, crazy winter” in the region, he said.

Snowstorms of this magnitude are very rare for this late in April. Forecasters expect record snowfall for this time of year in some areas.
The highest recorded snowfall for Pittsburgh on this date was a half-inch in 1956. Up to 5 inches of snow were forecast for Monday, the weather service said.
Snowfall rates in central Pennsylvania were expected to reach 1 inch per hour at times on Monday afternoon, said CNN Meteorologist Sean Morris.
One “bull’s-eye is Dubois, Pennsylvania,” he said.
Another is Erie, Pennsylvania, where snowfalls totals along the southern side of Lake Erie could reach 16 inches, Morris said.
“The snow will be heavy and wet. The weight of the snow accumulating on trees combined with gusty winds could cause branches to come down on power lines, resulting in widespread power outages,” he said.
Pete Petriani, who heads Erie’s Bureau of Streets, told CNN affiliate CNN affiliate WICU that depending on how heavily it snows, crews “may have to do a little filling up of the back of trucks just for weight if we have to go out and plow. But if it comes, we’ll be ready. It won’t be a problem.”
Snowfall amounts of 6 to 14 inches are forecast for the Allegheny Mountains of western Pennsylvania and near Lake Erie, the weather service said.
The snow won’t last long, Morris said. Temperatures are expected to rise into the 40s and 50s this week, with overnight lows remaining above freezing.
Late Monday morning, one weather watcher reporting to CNN affiliate CNN affiliate WIVB had recorded 5 inches of snow near Boutwell Hill State Forest, southwest of Buffalo.
A public works dispatcher said 4 to 6 inches of snow had accumulated “on the hilltops, somewhat less in the valleys” of Chautauqua County in western New York state by early Monday afternoon.
“We have a few limbs that have fallen, nothing too big yet, nothing we can’t handle,” said dispatcher Rick Heath. “All of our (plow) trucks are out, and we’re looking at more snow tonight.”
The system rained out both the Mets and Yankees baseball games on Sunday.
A “pattern shift in the jet stream over the weekend” caused the weather change, with temperatures dropping in the country’s eastern half and spiking in the west, CNN Meteorologist Sarah Dillingham said. “This trend will continue through Tuesday and Wednesday,” though by Wednesday, temperatures will be working their way closer to normal, she said.
