    Anyone else experiencing a drastic change in temperature this winter? It's going from freezing cold, to mild, to freezing, to mild again. We were hit with a snow storm last weekend and today it was raining. :shock: Normally it's cold until friggin April up here and our snow sticks around until late March. But so far there's been hardly any snow and when it does come, it melts away quickly due to the change in temperature.

    Al Gore warned us.

    Same here, we didn't really get snow until January and it's been wet snow. Utah is known for its dry snow. Weird winter.

    Crazy weather indeed. I'm wearing shorts one day, scraping ice off my car the next day, and today I enjoyed warmer temps while I mowed and grilled steaks. Rain is forecast for tomorrow.

    It's a beautiful summer down here in Australia.

    We've had storms for the past week, so when it rains the temperatures down a nice 20-25 degrees.
    And then the rain stops for, say, 8 hours and it hits 35 degrees before the rain comes back.

    Utah's had weird seasons as long as I've been here. It snowed like 6 inches in May last year.

    California's been pretty warm and dry. Honestly I hate it. At least it should rain this time of year.

    In PA, it's just cold...for now. The western side got up in the 50's in January. It's supposed to rain on Thursday with a high of 44

    I live in a place that subscribes to the theory that there are only 2 seasons, not 4.

    From October to April, it is usually cold, unnecessarily windy, and just unpleasant. From May to September, it is ungodly hot, unnecessarily windy, and just unpleasant.

    If I had to sum up the place I lived, and how the weather is, I'd say: It is either cold or hot, unnecessarily windy, and just unpleasant.

    Seriously...is Spring nice? I haven't seen an actual one since 1997.

    We had a flurry of snow just last week. Nothing that knocked us off our feet though. But it was -13C one night last week - insane!

    Today it is 6C.

    Few past weeks have been cold hitting the -30 celsius mark, but now it's back to the usual -10-20. Still too much snow coming in. Only positive thing about it is that it brings some exercise cleaning it up. So a pretty usual winter here.

    Paradox is spot on. The temp wouldn't get past 39 degrees two days ago. Today we're gonna have a high around 78. Didn't get much of a winter in Texas this year, except for those few days in the 30s.

    Everything is melting here, which is awesome, except for the crazy dangerous slushy roads. Hopefully it all just melts away and we get an early spring.

    In saint louis there is always one week out of the year where there is a 30-50 degree temp change in 4 days. It was 28 on saturday, snow on monday, 50 on tuesday, and rain today.


    Every year. maybe global warming will bring some normal fuck weather.

    up in manitoba canada we have had one of the mildest winters in history. a lot of records have been broken for high temps. a couple weeks ago we had horrible fog due to warm temps, melting snow and absolutely no wind. got so bad they shut down some schools in the country.

    i remember when i was a kid it used to be -30, -40c weather the entire winter. now its between 0 and -10 most of the time with the occasional -40. it's insane how much has changed in the last 10 years.

    yea all of canada has had a pretty warm winters... this last week has probably been the coldest stretch all winter but its up to +5 today. -10 - 15 for a few days though. others than that we have barely had two consistent cold days in a row all winter.

    it sucks cause when you have dogs and it's constantly freezing and thawing they get all muddy and it makes dealing with them a huge pain. normally it's only an issue in early spring when everything is all muddy.but it's been all winter
