What's going on with the crazy weather this year?

I live in Washington state and just for fun I thought I'd get your theories of what is going on with all this weird weather throughout the nation and what do you think will happen weatherwise in 2009? We got a huge snowstorm here this month, I think record snow amounts in some areas.

  • I think the earth goes through cycles and we get weird weather every so often. Its been a bit off here too. I am in NC in the foothills and it was in the 60s last week and sunny LOL. The last two days its been below freezing. Go figure. But I remember having my son in 2000 and there was so much snow, then now nothing. ABout every 10 yrs we get a bad winter. Im hoping for a nice cold snowy one.

  • dle4125, I would have to agree! For a while there it was not even worth trying to get out of the house to go anywhere cause the roads were so bad :) Thankfully we're back to dreary grey rain and in the 40's. NEVER thought I would be thankful for that!!!

  • I use to live in the apartment right down the road from McCord. I grew up in the Spanaway area and I don't ever remember snow like your getting this year.

  • we have been getting strange weather about the last ten years.Very unpredictable and terrible at times.I don't think it is end of times but something is definitely different from when I was little.

  • we live in central IL - honestly in less than a week we've had ice, snow and a tornado. It is just insane here. I've never experienced anything like this.

  • i think its hilarious how everybody in the lower 48 freaks out whenever it snows a couple inches. its 18 below zero here and we have about 30 inches of snow, but tomorrow morning im just gonna shovel off my truck and drive to work.
