Spring?


This photo was taken on April 14th, 2018. Unusually cold and stormy weather may well be a consequence of global warming. The jet stream normally moving from west to east is disturbed and weaken by warming conditions, so those of us on the northern prairie get Arctic air and blizzards. Our temperatures have been 30 to 40 degrees below normal for this time of year, and I had to remove three feet of snow from the driveway. Last year was the hottest year on record, eclipsing the previous hottest, the year before. This summer's heat may also be extreme.

  1. I read this morning in the paper that we are still in the tail of a little ice age from around 1600. ( But I don't believe everything thats in the papers.)

  3. Your story is replicated in a number of areas. My Minnesota friends are howling as loudly as the winds that blew through their area. I don't think at my age and general physical and mental condition I could deal with this weather any more! Aargh!

  7. It is miserable here too - we just had 3 days of ice pellets and freezing rain! Much heavier to shovel than our usual snow.
