"...Shouldn't Talk About The Weather": Global Warming, Redux

Haven't been on here in a while, but just got a laptop (FINALLY) so I can be part of this place again.

With all the WACKY weather stories the past week, maybe we should start keeping tabs.

--Frozen CA
--Flowers blooming in Washington DC and NYC
--lack of snow some places, WAY TOO MUCH in others
--hurricane force winds (up to 135 MPH!) in Europe
--Bush finally notices polar bears still exist

Even the Denier In Chief is finally waking up. And Nancy Pelosi has announced a global warming panel. Any chace ANYTHING will be passed? 4 or 5 diff. engry proposals floating around this week. At least they're NOTICING.

Everybody, it seems few of us are spared! Share your wacky weather stories! And this doesn't have to be depressing--you can be funny too.

Myself, in ALbany, NY: (21/2 hrs north of NYC):
We finally got the typical glacial cold of winter this week, and FINALLY, 3 or 4 inches of snow after a snowless, 60-degree winter. We were like DC until this week. I was starting to get scared--we are used to a lot up here, but summer in winter is unheard of. Blizzards in early October, yes--but not this.The ski people are happy, but n the minus side, our local apple crop is kaput.

Fire away--and sorry about the REM quote

I flew through winds of around this speed in March. Never. Again.

Here we've been having gale force winds and constant rain.

The Met Office has issued a severe weather warning for Northern Ireland, with gusts of up to 80mph predicted.

27" of snow here in the desert a few weeks ago. This isn't right. It's scary.
