We had a polar vortex stationed right north of us last spring. It was cold and lasted for 3 weeks tissueguy.gif

It's not unnatural, but it does push the jet-stream south which in turn spits out plenty of storms for the UK. At least it's my theory.

The cold air should be over the arctic, now it's pushed down over the US. That's the reason our weather is so warm. The Americans are stealing our winter. 13.gifchuckle.gif

Those crazy Canucks and their water sports.chuckle.gif

It's a nice cozy 44F with a drizzle here just south of Seattle. In fact...all week is supposed to be in the upper 40's. With the exception of a week in Nov. of freezing temps and a dusting of snow on Dec. 20th...it's the same ole same ole here. I was born in Chicago...but you couldn't pay me to live anywhere back east anymore. I'll just sit here and bask in the Fukushima rain.

Something a friend said to me casually the other day made me think.

Fukkushima has been a serious problem for the pat few years now. So wouldn't it be possible that is is having an effect on our atmosphere and therefore on our weather? dunno.gif

dunno.gif Without doing some historical weather patterns research...everybody's ideas are really just somebody's best guesses, theories and conjectures mixed with conspiracy and distrust of everything governments do. Does it make them untrue? No..but without some kind of research going back farther than 3 years...I take most all potentially woowoo theories with a grain of salt.

Meanwhile, let's remember the Little Ice Age for a bit.

Quote:The Little Ice Age brought colder winters to parts of Europe and North America.
The first River Thames frost fair was in 1607 and the last in 1814; changes to the bridges and the addition of an embankment affected the river flow and depth, hence diminishing the possibility of freezes. Freezing of the Golden Horn and the southern section of the Bosphorus took place in 1622. In 1658, a Swedish army marched across the Great Belt to Denmark to attack Copenhagen.

In the winter of 1780, New York Harbor froze, allowing people to walk from Manhattan to Staten Island. Sea ice surrounding Iceland extended for miles in every direction, closing harbors to shipping.

Crop practices throughout Europe had to be altered to adapt to the shortened, less reliable growing season, and there were many years of dearth and famine (such as the Great Famine of 1315–1317, although this may have been before the LIA proper).[25] According to Elizabeth Ewan and Janay Nugent, "Famines in France 1693–94, Norway 1695–96 and Sweden 1696–97 claimed roughly 10% of the population of each country. In Estonia and Finland in 1696–97, losses have been estimated at a fifth and a third of the national populations, respectively."[26] Viticulture disappeared from some northern regions. Violent storms caused serious flooding and loss of life. Some of these resulted in permanent loss of large areas of land from the Danish, German and Dutch coasts.[24]

It could be so much worse!

Weather records have tumbled across North America, with freezing temperatures even in the southern US.

The most extreme arctic blasts, blamed on a weather pattern known as the polar vortex, were said to have affected nearly 190 million people.

In Kentucky, an escaped prisoner turned himself in to get out of the cold.

Some parts of the Midwest hit -26C (-14F), as low as the Antarctic coast in winter, and much colder than the inside of a domestic freezer.

I remember reading somewhere a couple of years ago about how scientists were finding flowers and plants where the ice caps are receding. The thing was, they had not just sprung up, but were kind of "flash frozen". Now I look at some of these pictures and understand how.
