I have no idea. I live in Upstate New York, and we have had no snowstorms at all this winter. VERY little snow here.
There are people in my area who give speeches and presentations about global warming, and they blame that for the weather patterns.
I think our worst winter in the past two decades in this area was the Blizzard Of 1993. I remember 1994 was also very severe.
Since that time we have had some snowstorms, but nothing like those 2 years.
Since I have lived in this area since childhood, I remember winters being REALLY winter growing up. We never even saw the ground for months as it was covered with snow.
Now it seems to be the opposite. We see much less snow and more ground.
Nature is also confused. Crocuses start to sprout early as well as other bulbs.
No snowstorm in our forecast at all since Winter began in this area.
