    And to think there are still Global Warming deniers out there. It's like arguing about the thermostat while your house is burning down around you.

Here in the USA it too has been a hard winter with the South being hit with ice and snow; which they know nothing about....today US1 was closed down and the military had to be brought in to rescue people off the interstate as it was deemed impassable. Here we are looking at about 8 to 12" of snow and then rain....next week it is to be in the 50F!

    Why? Does anyone have any thoughts on why this weather cycle is happening?
    Simple, take any complex steady state system and disturb the equilibrium and the result is chaotic adjustments until a new equilibrium is reached.

    Take the planetary weather system which is very complex and was pretty much steady state and add to that a massive change in the levels of various greenhouse gasses and pollutants and the result will not be a steady increase in global temperature but a chaotic mish-mash of record weather events.

    The Earth Wind map that was posted recently shows that clearly - go to the 10hPa level and you see the jetstream cutting through Canada from north to south

    Beautiful - absolutely beautiful day 80 degrees today.

    We didn't have much of a Winter - Spring started a few weeks ago.

    wonderful weather.

    Now my family in Seattle have a different story - snow

    Just watched on TV... waves 20 miles In land In Somerset. WTF !!!!! That's waves crashing over farmers fields.

    Here In Oscar Towers, I was surprised to say the least when I went out to the Foxes two nights ago to find snow. That was a surprise... all gone by morning.

    My garden still flooding but draining away quite well.

    I have a small river which is getting bigger about 200 yards away, beyond the houses to the right of my front door is flood plain, the local B&Q is located there, it's car park has been flooded this week.

    My house is not too far the other side of this building.

    It is a worry.
