    Today, we had probably about 3 or four iterations of this cycle:

    (1) Snow in enough quantity to obscure vision, driven by howling winds for a half hour.
    (2) Bright, bright sunshine that melts all the snow that has not already melted.
    (3) Rinse, repeat.

    This is unusual weather for April in Northern Illinois, but not unheard of -- my anniversary is April 8 and there is snow on the ground in our outdoor wedding pics.

    Well in L.A. today it was over 90 degrees but should cool down to a chilly 87 for Sunday. So much for global warming... Looks like L.A. warming.

    Global warming is a misunderstood concept. That's why we are now talking about climate change.

    We had the most freakish winter in 30 years up here, with more rain than snow. February was the warmest February in 185 years, by 2°C. That's huge ! Last year it was sub -25°C for months. At the end of the year, the naysayers will say, look at the average temperature, it's the same. It is, but instead of having gradual temp changes, we now have extreme changes in temps. In the past recent years, we've seen more and more 20 to 30°C changes in a 24 hour span.

    Instead of nice regular breezes and fronts that bring stronger winds, we have wind squalls that uproot 100 year old trees.

    Rain showers here and there, no, we have downpours that wreck dirt roads, take away bridges, flood whole neighborhoods. Then no rain for a month.

    Look at the jet stream. It used to be a long smooth wave going across the continent. Moving slowly up and down parallels with the seasons. Now it's a spiky graph like that of a heart monitor.

    The unusual is fast becoming the usual. Natural disasters becoming common is our future.

    It was a bit of a bizarre winter in the Toronto area this year. Didn't get much snow until much later than usual, then it would warm up to the spring-like temp, drop to normal, go way under normal and snow, warm up, go way under normal, warm up, cool off, snow, warm up, etc.... Not a flake of snow to be seen in the AM, I changed my tires, and blazamo! Snow, below freezing and howling wind.

    It seems the north american jet stream has been erratically bitch slapping everybody this winter.

    Serious gusty winds from the US midwest / great lakes and out to the Atlantic coast this past weekend.
    Yikes!!

    The end is nigh.

    Jumping in a bit late on this one, sorry for that.
    I remember when I joined this forum three years ago, I could hardly believe it could snow in march or april and then, here I am, spending a year in Montreal! Temperature was around 20ºC back home in Paris a couple of days.
    I'd upload a pic but the site can't seem to accept my file
