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.

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?
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). 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." 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.

We're like that. We want all the good, bad AND ugly.

All of it yes. I think there's enough winter for everyone
Oh and I'm not too worried, we have -8C forecast for Saturday.
