    Not enough cold weather around here. At this rate, it will be a bad year for peaches.

    Maybe we should send you some of ours!
    We won’t miss it!

    We’ve been having 2 months longer winter for four straight years in the Pacific Northwest. Hoping this year is not one of them. The Pacific High, a high pressure system that brings an end to the fall/winter/spring weather pattern (rains west of the cascades, cold east of the cascades), normally begins in May and lasts through the second or third week of October.
    .
    It’s not formed until July for four straight years. The effects on plants in the forested regions of the state with an effective 8 months more of winter in 4 years have not been good.
    .
    Also disturbing is the sheer number of Arctic fronts that brought frost during the summer months of 2009, 2010, and 2011. Every two to 3 weeks, a killer frost hit on the west side of the Cascades. Not long ago, the pear crop didn’t come in right in the Rogue Valley, thanks to it being a cool summer. The crops were tremendously delayed.
    .
    As a general rule, Arctic air masses only hit the PNW from November at the earliest to about April at the latest. We’ve been having them periodically during the summers.

    It’s snowing here and we’ve been warned to expect temperatures of minus ten by Wednesday. I don’t know if this helps at all.

    It’s okay. You can say it. Just close your eyes and let the words just quietly slip out: GLOBAL WARMING.

    Global Climate Disruption is more accurate.

    Nabuquduriuzhur…this isn’t a science class…and Tog…I agree this isn’t in very good taste. People are dying in their cars and you post this?

    I drove from Kissimmee, FL to Freedonia, NY right behind (and in) that storm. There was accumulated snow on the ground in Kissemmee before we left. No snow tires, and bad ball joints. Only got stuck once, in a parking lot. I had someone spin the back tires while I simply pushed the back end around, sideways. I think that was the most snow I’ve ever seen.
