I hope I'm putting this in the right place....This is a ramble/rant I hope it makes sense
So, I live in Ohio and the last couple days we have gotten a buttload of rain, following that massive snowstorm last week, and for the first time in a
very long time the town I live in and the surrounding towns are dealing with floods.
I am 34 and I can never remember this happening before! I said the same thing about the snowstorm last week. Yes, it snowed when I was a kid,
sometimes alot, but I can't ever remember us getting slammed quite like that.... AND another odd thing about that snowstorm? It was sleet/snowing AND
thunder and lightning! STRANGE!
Anyway, now that the snow is melting ( The day after the snowstorm I swear it was something like 60 degrees...) and we just got 3 days worth of rain,
alot of our roads are closed, the river is way up over it's banks and the two area dams are so full the watersheds are trying to slowly let them
out... which is causeing more flooding YAY!
I mean, it seems to me that the weather really has changed! Climate Change.... is this what that means? I always thought it meant an ice age.. or
unexpected drought lasting forever so I always shook it off as silly talk. Now I am begining to think perhaps I was too quick to brush it off.
Is this going to become the norm? Extremes? one day freezing and a foot of snow, the next 60 degrees, everything melting and torrential rain and
floods? It's really got me thinking... and it's scaring me... anyone else feeling this way?
