I dont know if it is just me, but the weather this year is so strange.
Here is is August the 7th, and I had to turn on the heat this morning.
When I woke up it was 46 degrees. Todays high was 69. I mean its
August what is going on. I live in Kentucky and this is post to be own hottest month. But it feels like late October. I went and looked at weather.com to see what the averge High and Low was post to be this time of year and it said, 92 for the high and 68 for the low.
And besides the strange temp. We have had like 20 tornados this year. And here in Eastern Ky the last tornado we had was 7 years ago, but
this year weve had 20.
And 3rd. I have a flock of black birds that live in the trees surrounding my home. Theres over 100 of them. They come here every year around March and leave around October. But About 2 we4eks ago they disappeared. Is it possible they think it is Fall already.
Anyone else noticed the strange weather or am I just crazy......

The last Ice Age was just about 10-11 thousand years ago. My encyclopedia confirms that ocean currents affect the weather as indicated in the ATS link above.
This sort of puts the lie to Al Gore's claim that SUV's and corporations are causing global warming (unless someone can show me that ancient pre-ice age civilizations had SUV's and pickup trucks).
I read in Atlantic Magazine that paleogeologists have determined that a global warming period preceded the last Ice Age by just 15-20 years and then the Ice Age came on quickly. This is believed to have happened with each Ice Age through earth's history.
Additionally, the world underwent a brief and severe cooling period just over 100 years ago but it was so quick that it went virtually unnoticed until decades later when scientists figured out what happened.
