Not so much snow this year,still we have this amazing pictures...with Snow from the Past.

Maybe we didn't appreciate the snow as other living creatures do maybe they need the snow more then we are!

I hope that snow will not became a memory for the years to come.

We need snow for them,

I know I miss the snow

I live in the mountains of Wv where we used get our first snow of the year around Halloween Its now December and still no snow. The first significant snow fall is being pushed back further and further every year.

Yesterday here it was 64F when the average temp for the first week of December used to be in the 20s.

How can people say there is nothing wrong with the climate? That our centuries long ignorance on pollution, our "scientist" playing the HAARP, or maybe the millions of high powered cell towers setting on top of the highest places in out country.

I miss the snow.....

Unfortunately, things like this happen here on earth. It goes through cycles. I can't say I will miss the snow. Heck we just had 10 inches here last week.

This year I have only rains where I live. I don't know if The Snow will come back.

It's DANG COLD! here in Colorado, and we got our first snow quite a few weeks ago. You guys can have some if you want.

Thanks


Snowing yesterday too!


Up to 4 inches forecast although i have sneaky feeling where i am we will only get a light covering......

I love it though and want several feet every winter. Frankly we would have if it wasn't for the bloody Gulf Stream!

I don't think the OP was trying to say that it doesn't snow at all anymore just that it doesn't snow the way it used to.

Your location says the UK. The people I know there say it doesn't really snow that much there especially in early winter if it snows at all. Do you not think that having more snowfall then normal in the UK is a sign of at least local climate change if not world wide? That the the warming in South America is changing the salt content in the conveyer that keeps your island warm and generally free of snow?

No snow here but we did have hailstones the size of....

...no I won't say it, "hailstones the size of golf balls" is not only an over-worn cliche, it's also a bare-faced lie in the majority of cases.

We had hailstones the size of petit-pois, but they still hurt like buggery*

I love the snow too but if the Atlantic conveyor slows or stops island north of you like the Faroe islands and others would turn into giant ice cube and Great Britten wouldn't be much better off.

Honestly? Not at all. We have written historical records from around 700AD and these show that at various times we go through spells of having loads of snow. As recently as Victorian times, the rives and bays (sea) would freeze over - the Thames used to have big fairs on the ice. 300 years ago there were avalanches in the peak district fairly regularly. If you check our latitude on a globe, we are similar to Montreal and Winnipeg - the Gulf Stream steals all of our snow!

There is some belief that the Gulf Stream changes its direction every (insert number) hundred years for a few hundred years at a time and then flips back again (evidence of this in the UK can be traced using climate records). In other words, it is a natural cycle and nothing to worry about. Now, if we start to see a return of glaciers, then i will worry!

well, maybe it's your turn now!


here in the southern hemisphere it seems to have gotten drier and drier over the past 5 to 10 years.... with the last few years having almost returned to 'normal'. (normal based on rainfall in November (spring) and February (summer). In the past 5 to 10 years winters stretch seemed to get drier, with summers rain getting later and later, sometimes with little to no 'real' spring rains.
However, and I feel this is due to the ENSO (El Nino Southern Oscillation), over the last, say, three years the spring rains have been increasing and summer rains returning to'normal'.

So, maybe the tides have turned so to speak? Maybe it's our turn for rains and the N. Hemispheres turn for more dry conditions?
I'm no meteorologist, but this is my 2cents.

It's strange. Where I am there's now robins mid-summer and i'm still seeing wasps to this day, despite snow on the ground.

It definitely used to snow a lot heavier from memory too.

The hair looks far too short from every other video and images I've seen of them. Has a very nice coat

Okay, you guys are on to something. Gulf Stream cycles, yeah, HAARP, cell towers, okay, pollution, etc. There’s some good point’s here. Along with El Nino/La Nina, and localised ocean and air currents, the sun, the earth’s structure and motion (which is often affected by earthquakes), these things together all display an abstract picture of how the seasons are affected.

I think that as much as we want the seasons to be static, this paradigm needs to be shattered.
One thing that I’m amazed by, are the many cycles of nature; Outside of our Earth bubble as well as in. Solar cycles, ice ages and precession to name a few...

Back to the point

And I’m sure this is science fact:
All these things together, having an influence on each-other, would create mini-cycles, as we see with temperature variations over 100’s of 1000’s of years in ice-core samples.

Except that these ‘mini-cycles’ would pertain to different things, e.g. snow and rain / drought cycles, etc. For example, a cycle of El Nino, against a localised cycle of increased rainfall (say in middle N. America), could lead to heavy flooding during summer, but maybe could lead to excess snow-fall during winter.

Basically what my rambling brain is trying to put forth is that
1. These things all display their own cycles
2. Which are influenced and modified by greater cycles
3. Greater cycles are not left unaffected
4. We should, therefore, not expect seasons to be constant.
and stuff
