you're talking about a minuscule time period. Mother earth has been around for a long time. Montana used to be a jungle, and africa used to touch south america !

Well, in Michigan all is normal. Rain, sleet, freezing rain, snow and now sun. A typical day in the Great Lakes region.......

Radagast: Ok...maybe for the entire history of Earth, this weather is not unusual. I'm sure an ice age and a magnetic pole shift certainly beat our present weather in strangeness. THAT'S NOT THE POINT. For OUR present relevant time span, which is several hundred years, let's say, these weather patterns are VERY UNUSUAL. Do you understand now? It's all relative. Global climate change is a reality...get used to it.

Last night I went to a restaurant without a coat and today it was snowing...but this has happened many times before over the several years I've lived in New York City. Nothing unusual.

Well, right now its about -6 degrees (Fahrenheit) with a windchill of -27 below. That is todays high tempature. This morning it was more like -18 below with a windchill in the high negative thirties.
This is the forecast from one of the local news stations:

Thursday Night: Cold air moving into the area as the winds increase mean extremely low wind chill values. Values could be down into the -40 to -50 range across the area Lows:-20 to -31. Winds: NW 15-25.

Friday: Bitterly Cold air continues to reinforce itself and will stick for the next few days. Highs: -10 to -5. Winds: NW 10-15.

Tempatures like this are rare, but we still havent hit any records. (the record low for here is -38 which was set in 1965)

I should probably also say I live in NW Wisconsin.

True oddities may have occured before, and true, it may be magnetic poles or some cycle, but I don't think that we should sit back and shrug it off. Odd weather and catastrophies can wipe a good portion of us out if we aren't prepared in some way, or we don't do something to help fix it.

I waswatching the news today and they showed Hawaii covered in thats kinda odd

Well ...where I am in Australia, in the last fortnight we have had just
about every season this summer, all in the space of 2 weeks, so yep
I think it's weird.

the mountain in hawaii is named "white mountain" because the elevations are so high it snows every year.....

to the poster that said thunderstorms in january in canada are unprecedented, can you tell me what province you live in so I can research that ?

I guess I shouldn't be surprised on a conspriacy board, a warm front followed by a cold front is considered is evil or something to worry about...

the data presented here represents 1% of what happened yesterday.

where's the other side ? objectivity anyone ? well, I don't want to spoil things, but today in connecticut its cold.
according to weather .com, for my town in january, the average high is 35 and the average low is 18.
here's the forecast for the next week high/low;

33°/23° 0%
33°/24° 10%
26°/7° 30%
20°/14° 20%
27°/18° 40%
26°/8° 40%

Read their post, go look at a map, and you will find out.

Ottawa, Ontario. Capital of Canada. Actually it'd be interesting to see if this has ever occured in Ottawa in winter, please post the results of your search here if you could.

Radagast, you're still not listening. You can't just look at the big picture of the planet, when continents were in different positions and the Giza plateau was a vibrant rainforest. YES, compared with that, an unseasonal thunderstorm is nothing. But everything is relative....if you use the past 2000 years as your framework, this is indeed very unusual. This means we are going through a major climate change - major for our frame of reference - several thousand years. For us this is major, because it's unprecedented in *recorded* history. But YES, you're right: if your framework is a billion years, it's just a normal day for the planet, because it's had many of these cycles before.

Do you understand now why your arguments are not relevant? Because we are all using a different framework here. I really hope this helps.

Exactly! What is happening, right now, in this shorter time frame is what is important. Again, if we just shrug it off as normal, we could get into trouble. That doesn't mean we necessarily need to run around in an "end of the world" panic. I don't necessarily like all the media hype over every little disaster or killing, because stuff happens and people die every day, I know this. I don't need to be told every day that someone got killed in a car accident. But this thing with the weather is genuinely odd, and I think we need to keep an eye on it. I'm not saying stop living life, and obsess about it, but be aware of what is happening around us, and be prepared, like I stated before, and continue to help fix the environment.

Great post, how comprehensive do you claim it to be? I wonder if that's all, what sources did you use, and what is your guess as to the total percentage of unusal activity accounted for? Also, a note on the explosions, meteors are really nothing new, meteor showers are nothing new, and asteroids passing by the earth are nothing new. No cause for alarm, our status as a species is unchanged, we could still all die at any moment.

I don't know about you guys but I actually enjoyed it being warm again in January here in the Southeastern US, at least for a little while that is. I don't believe any records were broken here even though it was in the 70's on several days. My heating bill looked like it would be alot higher than normal so 2 weeks of warm weather was just want I needed to reduce my bill. I don't mind the weather changing a little bit myself. Before you know it, more tornadoes and warm spring air will likely be back again here in the US but that is normal too. I guess all is quiet for the moment though.
