Crazy Weather Patterns

Severe weather sucks, no arguement about that at all.  I don't know how it has been where you gents and ladies have been, but here, in Southwest Virginia, it has been worse than usually.  I'm not even just talking about this Spring season, but also recent Winters.  Everything seems to be getting more and more stronger.  More snow, more ice, more rain, stronger winds, and, as of this season, stronger winds here.

Close to my own town, a local area was recently hit, Glade Spring.  A few miles away, I felt some of the impact of the storm myself, but not to the degree and intensity they did.  In fact, a torando actually cropped up there causing quite a bit of damage.


Then we have the recent stuff out Midwest.  It's everywhere... I don't think I need to run this recent news into the ground.

Instead, I'll ask.. What do you guys think the recent extreme weather patterns are due to?

In my own opinion, I think it's partially due to Global Warming (Oh god, right?).  To me, it makes sense.  Man has spent so much time screwing with Mother Nature, this is just her way of cleaning herself.  I always tended to agree heavily with my biology teacher in high School, Earth is a living, breathing thing, just like us and when our body has a parasite that is causing us harm, we don't waste any time at all to fix it.  I guess it is time we either realize what we're doing and clean up our act here on Earth or get out.

Drop a comment, I'd love to hear some views and how (if) the weather is crazy where you folks live.


  1. I know how you feel about crazy weather. I live in southern california where we'll have 80 degree weather then rainy day 60 degrees. It sucks.

  2. Wow! I think we've been getting the back end of your bad weather in the UK, so windy here at the minute!

  3. gaah it's been messed up in north texas too.
    had sirens going off for the better part of the evening

  4. The planet is definitively changing and we will have to adapt to her.

  5. Global warming may be a factor... be it man made or natural...

    Its hard to tell exactly which has affected it more, but I think its all merely a 'cycle effect' happening.

    Probably nothing out of the ordinary, we just haven't had such detailed records of it in the past.

  6. In my neck of the woods the weather's been pretty stable. So don't worry. We're not seeing any global weather anomalies... YET!

  7. It only gets worse from here.

    Fortunately, the only crazy weather I have to worry about here, is Earthquakes and Tsunamis... maybe a volcano.

  8. Damascus? Ain't it a lil' bit far away?
