I should have stayed in Alaska this winter. The weather there was better than a lot of places.

You must be talking about all the snow in the south. I failed to see any humor in it.

The reality of the peeve is that these weather patterns may last several years is what I hear, no refund no exchange and we need to watch it perhaps again and again.

I love mother nature with all it's power. I find it quite humbling and I see it as the voice of the Creator.

It's especially nice for us modern homo sapiens sapiens because we can hide in our ac/heater controlled environments. Just think how tough it was for our ancestors, my Native People's and the other nations who endured.

Seems like the northeast has had it tough for the past couple of years. I guess that is normal for the Dakota's and MN etc. We are mild in comparison here in Oklahoma.

It is not Mother Nature playing games, it is just me hoping for cold and snow and then rain and flowers and then the most beautiful spectrum of colors in the autumn, followed by more cold and snow.

My geography may be a little rusty these days. My bad...

Well it's not just there but here and globally. Flat out weird weather patterns and has been for a while. I've just got to the point to where when people ask me when the rainy season is I tell them that I look out my window. If the sun is shining there's a good chance it'll stay sunny all day, but we could have a front move in and bring some afternoon rains.

Forgive me if I get up on my soap box a minute, but with all of the pollutants being put into the air, over development in some/a lot of areas, clear cutting forests, etc. it's bound to come back and bite us in the butt; all of this has an affect on our weather patterns. The droughts in central Texas where ranchers were having to sell their herds, snowing in parts of the world where it never snows, massive loss of crops in other areas due to abnormal cold weather, etc. etc. etc. IMO we're treating Mother Nature like a dirty dish rag and the gal ain't happy about it :: quietly stepping down from soap box ::
