Global warming, the seasons become more extreme. This has been long predicted.

i think the birds in the snow is unusual..... they've got to be seriously confused!! i'm kind of surprised they've survived the snow. i'm in texas and haven't seen any out of place birds although i've noticed over the past several years that the blue jays are almost gone and the grackles (or cow birds) have missing tails. it's mostly the male grackles.

Cool...don't think I've ever seen a catbird around here,,,really sweet looking bird and such a pretty singer! But that's not the bird. This one's more reddish-grey and like a puffball. I'll get a pic today if I can. The two who were hanging out this week almost seemed out of energy and sick. I watched but never caught them flying away.

Too bad most of us don't have ice skates and sleds...haha. I have a snow shovel I brought down from NY 20 years ago and have used mainly for mulch all this time. Everyone's been borrowing it all week. Half the people here have never seen one!
Hmm...looked those up, and that's not it either. We do have a lot of those. Thanks. I'm going to venture out later too...still haven't left the house...lol!

Lots of folk predicted this, mostly because of the disaster in the Gulf.

There have been no reports I have seen that large areas of the globe are experiencing heat waves in excess of a 20°F departure from normal to offset the 20°F deficit being experienced in North America and the UK. If you know of some, please point them out.
There is evidence that the effect of higher air temperatures in the lower Arctic atmosphere in fall is contributing to changes in the atmospheric circulation in both the Arctic and northern mid-latitudes," wrote the report's authors, a team of 69 international scientists.
Extreme cold and big snowfalls can be blamed on the Arctic changes, according to NOAA.
