the only thing we've noticed unusual in this part of the uk is the fact it's february and it hasn't rained for 2 weeks! Just been waking up to
frost each morning and then beautiful blue skies and spring-like afternoons.
if anything in last few years we've had less snow - now I know why - you greedy lot have stolen it
seriously I think weather patterns do change for natural reasons - look at what happened with El Nineo.
there's one odd thing though - a lot of elderly people I know say that the weather hasn't been the same since the first few times man went into
space. In the uk we have milder winters and wetter cooler summers now
