Corgi, I’m 43, and yes, it’s different than it used to be. Whether it’s global warming or just the natural progression of weather patterns, or even the natural progression of weather patterns assisted by modern society, who can say for sure? It is odd, though.

I don’t think you are crazy at all. I recall my high school years in CO as waking up to snow almost everyday (light dusting, usually) and having to clean it off of my car which made me late to first period class at least three days a week – only to have the snow gone by 2pm when we would get out of school for the day. It hardly ever snows in the Denver area compared to that. It’s funny, though, because anyone that moved to the metro area in the last 6 years FREAKS when they see more than ten inches. That was much closer to norm snow storms not that long ago.

I don’t care what the reason for it is as much as I detest how it effects my job. Sizing mechanical equipment with ten year old weather data is so not conducive with multiple 106degree days in the summer.

It is weird. It used to snow down here maybe ONCE a year. We’ve had it 2 times since the new year came in! never had it that often.

It’s funny cause we kind of have the opposite here. In the last 5 years the first snowfall has steadily become earlier and earlier, but the cold weather sticks around pretty much until April (generally speaking). Last year we had a massive final snowfall in early Feb but by the end of Feb I was going to work without a scarf and in a light coat. When I went out yesterday I was covered up to no end because it was so cold (and there were snow flurries, apparently we’re getting set for snow this weekend). But I remember when I first moved here and it snowed in late March and everyone thought it was pretty normal.

I agree the weather generally is being weird though. Freezing cold winters and super hot summers. It’s an odd thing alright.

I do think the weather is changing, but I think that the earth goes through natural changes. We are also in an el nino year so there is more precipitation than normal.
