Well, people may say that their weather is unusual ALL the time on here, but the last few years it really has been. Throughout 2012 I made a few
posts that we were CONSTANTLY breaking high temperature records. It was nearly every day. We also broke some dryness records. 2012 ended up being
the hottest year on record for the US.
This year we went the opposite direction. We are now constantly breaking records for low temperatures. Heck, last year I went on a field trip with
my class and everyone got burnt and we were running around looking for shade. It was in the 90's. This year, same place, same time the field trip
was canceled due to SNOW. In May.
Also, my husband and I started storm chasing about four years ago. The first two years we couldn't even chase all the storms. There were so many of
them every week during tornado season. This year and last, we have gone a total of 3 times combined. There are none to chase around here. Completely
abnormal. I grew up around here and I am used to seeing watches and warnings pop up all the time. It has been a very rare occurrence to even see a
thunderstorm watch pop up.
The weather is definitely different.
