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...
