    Weather Acting Funny in Your Neighbourhood?

    Will be without snow here in Göteborg all winter, with a small hint of possible snowfall in march - when the sun is out longer. This means a long, drawn out autumn on the other end of things.

    Doesn:t bode well for the mandatory winter tyres - 6.000 SEK for four new ones put on in okt.

    What:s up with your part of the world?

    Dont blame the politicians. Not that it is not an impending problem but the Earth is not static and does not conform to computer modelling.
    Coastlines and the continents themselves have been changing for millions of years and will continue to do so, uncaused and unchecked by man.
    Some ancient ports are now underwater and some are now inland.
    You can either build seawalls and levees or retreat to higher ground...not much you can do about reverse flow through storm drains.
    That is just the way it is and will be.

    California authorities labor under the delusion that higher prices for water will cut usage. Meanwhile water use has actually increased in many areas. We are maybe two more drought years away from a mass exodus from the state. Odds are it will rain and snow before that happens. Sorta like the odds were that the US futbol team would never make it out of the Group of Death.

    I was expecting some posts from the Bay Area today. It was dismal enough when I was there for and after Thanksgiving, but this sounds really bad.

    lots of road flooding, some power outages, but haven't yet heard of any "catastrophes"; of course, people on the outside tend to get sensationalized coverage of the selected problem areas.

    California "obliterated" its former hottest year on record in 2014.

    also in that story: in the 101 years of record keeping, first year ever that Anchorage didn't have a sub-zero day.
