Yes global warming will bring about lots of freak weather.
 
2022-05-22 11:38:15 AM  
Crap, wrong side of the continental divide. This should have happened in western Colorado, so the melted-off snow would wind up in Lake Mead.
 
2022-05-22 11:53:00 AM  
Yeah, we've had snow for a couple of weeks now.  About four inches the other morning.
But I don't live in Colorado, I live in a red state, so just ignore me.

Yeah.  Right now it's 95 degrees and humid in Connecticut.  Climate is all screwed up now.

In the meantime, I got my wife and her kids congregating close to the air conditioner because New Jersey went from 60 degrees to near 100 degrees from the previous day to the next two days.

Nah, we need it here, too.

We had 1" of rain, and we are so grateful. Had to cover the garden and tender flowers, because it was supposed to be snow.

It's amusing how a single weather event is NEVER a sign that global warming is not real, but any single weather event IS ALWAYS a sign that global warming is killing us all 30 years from now.

Lots of trees came down in my neighborhood, but I laughed as on one street the only place the trees fell was on this poor souls car.

Having a devestating snowstorm in Colorado and a dangerous heatwave in the Atlantic States on the same day in the near end of the month of May is not normal weather.

Lord, I miss that man.
Anywho, I live in Lake Suzy, FL and yesterday was unbearably hot, even for Florida. Didn't leave the house until the evening to celebrate my father's birthday.
92 degrees. 70+% humidity.  I walked outside once during the day and immediately walked back in. Great day for sitting under an air vent and playing Fallout 76.

Where I live, the rule of thumb is "Don't plant before Mother's Day."

We followed that, but still had to cover things up. Our neighbors covered their lupines and a couple of other things.

There is no such thing as normal weather and there never had been. "Freak weather" IS normal weather. Especially in the Spring.
 
2022-05-22 12:12:45 PM  
Yeah...we got 9-10 inches at my house.  Stupid ash trees lost lots of branches.  Home depot and lowes sold a lot of saws Saturday morning.  The roads were mostly clear and dry Saturday morning.

Wadded Beef: Update: the snow is all melted.


We got 10" and it's mostly melted - yet it's also still snowing and never actually stopped. Spring snow is weird.

My kids got to sled on the first day of summer vacation. That'll be a story until it happens again in three years.

Here in Central New York we had a frost warning for this past Tuesday and then it hit 94 yesterday with thunderstorms and hail. Climate chaos indeed!
 
2022-05-22 12:18:02 PM  
It's called a "spring snowstorm."    And all they whine about here is how the snowpack is now 80%, 90%, whoa, it's now over 100% in some places!!  Everybody get excited, while it rains/shows for a month!

so we do.
 
2022-05-22 12:29:00 PM  
This is unusual, but not unheard of. We get late spring storms and always have. As late as July 4th a few decades ago.
 
2022-05-22 12:29:40 PM  
Yup, several trees on my street lost big branches and a few lost their tops. Most of the snow is already melted. This seems to happen every few years.
 
2022-05-22 12:30:11 PM  
The glaciers are melting. All of that water has to come down somewhere. There's nothing strange about this, it's basic water cycle science...

...and it's going to get MUCH worse if we don't get off of fossil fuels.
 
2022-05-22 12:32:31 PM  
South Ontario got hit with T-storms, high winds & possible tornados yesterday. 4 dead from falling trees &/or debris.
Can we just tweak the calendar so these awful 2020s can f**k off?

Denver to Atlantic City is 1800 miles and a two thousand foot difference in elevation, do you think that the weather should be the same?

Illinois did that 2 weeks ago. week of 60s, week of 90s, back to 60s.

I wonder how much of our current weirdness could be related to the Tonga volcano back in January.

Truth. I'm not sure how much we got here in northwest Denver. I don't think it was near as much as 10". I saw a few broken branches on our street but nothing excessive.

We're doing that now in OH.  90s. Rain, 60s

Out here in cow country feed corn planting was delayed a month. And then it went from 40s/ low 50s to high 70s/ low 80s.

And yay for liquified manure baking away in 80 degree weather.

Extenuating circumstances is the man-made change in climate, or do you continue to assert that increasingly "freak" weather events every year is normal?
