Over the past 4 years I have noticed quite a drastic increase in the amount of snow in my area. I live on the south east coast of England in East Sussex. Every year the snow gets higher and higher in my town Hastings, I remember when I was a child/early teenager everyone used to hope and pray every year for even the slightest bit of laying snow.. we usually ended up disappointed with little bits of sleet or an inch of snow which lasted a few hours..
Over the past few years its gotten hectic.. Last year the snow was halfway up my thighs in a lot of places. .
"Heavy snowstorms are not inconsistent with a warming planet," said Dr. Jeff Masters, director of meteorology and co-founder of the Weather Underground website. "In fact, as the Earth gets warmer and more moisture gets absorbed into the atmosphere, we are steadily loading the dice in favor of more extreme storms in all seasons, capable of causing greater impacts on society." www.ens-newswire.com...
