Weather

It used to be that we could count on the weather following a certain seasonal pattern but this year there seems to be no rhyme or reason for the constant changes. Mother Nature seems to be quite confused and indecisive. I live in Kelowna, BC Canada. Usually by March 1, spring is in full motion but the last week has been crazy with weather ranging from 16 degrees celcius or 60.8 degrees farenheit down to -6 degrees celcius or 21.2 degrees farenheit. I would understand if it were a cold snap for a few days but the weather has been flip-flopping from one extreme to the next. The other day I went into the supermarket to pick up some milk. When I went in, it was grey and cool but clear. When I came out their was 4 inches of hail on the ground. Yesterday it was sunny and warm and then around 5pm a freak snowstorm that was completely gone in 2 hours. Today, I wake up and the snow is falling like it's Christmas? Is anyone else experiencing weird weather patterns like this?

Here in the Pittsburgh, PA area, it has been an old fashioned winter. Yes now and then a warmish day comes along, but never so that I feel like I can go without thermal underwear!
It is about 9:30 am, EST , has warmed up to 28 degrees F. from the 26 it was when I got up 3 hours ago. Lazy snowflakes are making an appearance here and there. I have had to shovel snow more often this year than in recent years. The 2 immediate neighbors are usually out shoveling at the same time and we have amiable banter, and of course old dog Daisy, Empress of the Universe must supervise all! Except for driving in unsafe conditions, I like Winter. Spring and Fall. I am the first one to complain about being too hot in the Summer!

In Dubai its early spring now so getting warmer. This year we hardly had any cold at all. It doesnt get too chilly here all year around and barely rains but this last year it did rain quite a few times, making the weather better than ever! It gets too hot in the summers though but the fully airconditioned enviornment makes it almost easy to forget the heat.

Here in Iowa, the "Bread Basket" of America, we've been having a drought for two years. Not good for us, and not good for the crops. Last summer, if it hadn't been for the genetically modified corn, we would have had a much worse crop. This winter we had warm weather in January, and cold weather with snow in March, when we should have been seeing spring.

Sometimes I wish aliens would come (just to see one!!). I always thought that they would look like the aliens from the Simpsons!

The weather is so weird in California! It's annoying if you ask me. One day it's really Sunny and beautiful and the next it's raining. Then it goes from being super hot to freezing mornings. I don't even know how to dress for the day anymore!!

Well I live in a pleasant city, called Melbourne, where we don't normally have extreme weather temperatures, until the last few years.
We still get an occasional 4 seasons in one day.

But I certainly think that the whole world has now been turned upside down and gone completely higgledy piggledy!
