    How can we have such a harsh winter, then such a mild winter the very next year?

    In 2009, we had several snows...and ice...and the big 2009 Ice Storm that traumatized everybody for weeks and months. In 2010, we had about 6 or 7 snows, with the final one dropping almost two feet of snow! Now, this winter, mild temperatures, rarely getting below freezing, except for a few times at night. Had a dusting of snow one morning. Historically, winters aren't too bad, except for a few exceptions. But his winter has been so mild. I love it! But how can things change so drastically from year to year?

    Historically weather has always fluctuated; it is true that we have experienced some pretty wild swings the last few seasons.

    Personally I think this whole climate change thing has something to do with it.  I don't pretend to be an expert on it or anything but there is just too much evidence to ignore that we have contributed to the changes in some way.
