It seems I keep saying this every year at the beginning of March...
March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb.
Instead the temp dropped after a week of melting and created a nightmare. You can barely walk on it let alone ride a bike. I'm so damn ready for spring it's pathetic.

It looks like bad 'climate change' news for B.C.
I keep getting thrown off this forum, it's very annoying.
Quote:Climate in Finland
The main factor influencing Finland's climate is the country's geographical position between the 60th and 70th northern parallels in the Eurasian continent's coastal zone, which shows characteristics of both a maritime and a continental climate, depending on the direction of air flow. The mean temperature in Finland is several degrees (as much as 10°C in winter) higher than that of other areas in these latitudes, e.g. Siberia and south Greenland. The temperature is raised by the Baltic Sea, inland waters and, above all, by airflows from the Atlantic, which are warmed by the Gulf Stream.
When westerly winds prevail, the weather is warm and clear in most of the country due to the 'föhn' phenomenon caused by the Keel range. Despite the moderating effect of the ocean, the Asian continental climate also extends to Finland at times, manifesting itself as severe cold in winter and extreme heat in summer.
Since Finland is located in the zone of prevailing westerlies where tropical and polar air masses meet, weather types can change quite rapidly, particularly in winter. The systems known to affect Finnish weather are the low-pressure system usually found near Iceland and the high-pressure systems in Siberia and the Azores. The position and strength of these systems vary, and any one of them can dominate the weather for a considerable time.
According to Köppen's climate classification, Finland belongs wholly to the temperate coniferous-mixed forest zone with cold, wet winters. The mean temperature of the warmest month is no lower than 10°C and that of the coldest month no higher than -3°C. Rainfall is moderate in all seasons.

It has been a mild winter but lots of snow. Although I'm hearing the snow pack in the mountains is way down, what should be 12-20 feet at Yank's Peak is 4. We used to see cold (-48C for ie) but i haven't seen that in 10 years maybe. I don't have a problem with warming The Pine Beetle is entirely man made, the gov allowing forest licencees to slack off on forest stewardship (ƒück I hate these buzzwords) the 'strike anywhere' matches burnt up BC's forests in the late 1800s and pine being an early seral stage (post fire) forest created the conditions for beetle infestation. If DUI Campbell had made the licencees responsible for the TSAs they harvested it wouldn't have happened. But they elected him and now they cut dead pine. So does Alberta, Saskatchewan, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Idaho, California, all the way down to Arizona. BC's government and it's supporting industry created this problem, not people driving to work although they are the ones being blamed and billed for it.
