We do seem to be experiencing more and more extreme weather. And it's all over the world. Everything moves in cycles. I wouldn't be surprised if the
global weather patterns were moving to the more extreme end of the spectrum.
The last two years here (uk) have seen some of the coldest, snowiest, winters for decades. There is talk of a mini ice-age approaching the northern
hemisphere. (good for snowsports
Other parts of the world have seen biblical floods and heat waves. It's all connected. I don't subscribe to the govt's inducing the weather, or
global warming. Our influence as a species is minute at best. Remember, it's action and reaction. One extreme event can set off another, and
another, and another. And it's all driven by planetary cycles and solar influences.
Ebb and flow.
So to answer your question, yes it is normal weather, we just haven't seen prolonged periods of this type of weather before. (not in my lifetime
Time will only tell if the trend is set to continue, or if it's just a flare up.
