Snow... in May

[weather| drizzling ][water| 0 @ 0958h ]
[mood| *erf*? ]

It's May. It snowed and hailed here last night. There was slush all over the back steps and all over every lawn I could see.

I've noticed that over the last 10-15 years, the cold weather has gradually occurred later and later. It used to get cold here around November/December; we used to have White Christmases, if it snowed at all. Then it started snowing in January instead (again, if at all). And this year, the cold weather has been insanely late.

I wonder if I should be worried that this could be one of the results of The Greenhouse Effect/Global Warming ... maybe the rise in water levels changed the landscape of something enough that it causes weather pattern changes in the South Pacific. I keep hearing "the South Pacific" mentioned every time some wacky weather thing happens. The "Pineapple Express" was the thing that caused our extraordinarily warm December/January this year. "El Niño" and "La Niña" have also been mentioned before...

It was just waiting for me to leave, so as to avoid bothering me.

That sounds more like the Vancouver I know and love, though. Snow and hail in May. Yummy.

Yeah, exactly. Someone is switching the seasons around and this is their first experiment in interchanging Winter and Spring. Why else would we have gotten Spring at the end of 2001 and then Winter in the first part of 2002? =P

I was just saying the other day (month really) that we had 6 months of September and now it's winter. Weird.

We got snow in mid-late April. Now many of the leaves that were coming out have turned this muted brown color. Weird.

Re:
Our trees are still blossoming, new leaves have been sickie-green and brown-ish for quite some time here... =P

I am sure glad Milwaukee is not the ONLY place that gets snow in May!

Hope there is not too much damage to the vegetation from the weight of the snow.

No sense worrying about the greenhouse effect. Nothing we can do about it now!

Yeah, same here... I'm wondering what this strange weather is doing to the agricultural industry...

Re:
I am sure we will find out by the higher prices in a couple of months!

Better start saving my pennies!

I can't believe you got snow this late!

And I, too, love the new icon!

Yeah, this Spring has been insane. It's as if Winter and Spring switched places. We got Spring at the end of 2001 and then Winter in the first part of 2002. =P

And I, too, love the new icon!

Thanks =)

All I have to say is... be glad you're not in Calgary. :) I had to shovel over a foot of snow today. It was insane.

What is the "Pineapple Express"?

I hear that! =O I can't even imagine... =P

That was the warm front that caused September to last 6 months.
