Weird Weather Everywhere

Yesterday afternoon there was a tornado watch in Massachusetts. A tornado watch! I've lived here for over 30 years and I don't recall ever hearing a tornado watch issued before. It's all about the global warming, of course. Extremes instead of our old reliable weather patterns.

Boston Globe: Tornado watch issued for parts of Mass., R.I., and Conn.

DailyKos: "Just no normal weather anymore. Anywhere."

Has anyone noticed that our local weather ... has turned truly screwy? We go from one bizarre weather condition to the next with almost no pause in between for "normal" conditions. It's too wet, too dry, too cold, too warm, too windy - nearly all the time. Hmmm? And scientists and average people all over the world, from Japan to Argentina, report similar strangeness. .... There's just no normal weather anymore. Anywhere.

Samuel Langhorn Clemens (Hartford 1888) said once: "If you don't like the weather in New England, just wait a few minutes."

It is thought he said this too: "Everybody talks about the weather but nobody does anything about it." It appears Mr. Twain and Mr. Warner could never predict this: Doing Something... Truth stranger than fiction?
