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.

I for one, do not miss the bone chilling winter ,like the one we had last year.with temps so mild this year, one wonders if we will be paying for it with a torturous summer heat wave!?

Is everyone else having a mild winter as I am?I'm in the mid-Atlantic U.S. and we've barely seen snow this winter. It's also been in the 50s most days. Not that I'm complaining that much...
