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.
