Is this a late spring around the world?

On Global News they've been complaining about how cold it is in Germany. Some guy in Moscow says "It feels more like the 55th day of February instead of the 25th of March".

This global warming stuff means more extreme weather, not that it's just going to be a little warmer. I can't wait to see what next summer's going to be like.

Good lord. It's called "climate variation" it's been this way forever. It's different every year, decade, and lifetime. Ever heard of the ice age?

And yes, snowing here in Nashville Tennessee today. Last year it was 70 today.

I disagree. we are still getting precipitation. that is the best sign of all. think about last year. some places have never been this hot and dry in our recorded history. even through the dust bowl. I did my first landscape in february. im happy to see bits of snow come down. itl warm up in a few weeks. this is much much much more normal compared to last year.

it's rained 3 straight months here with only a few days off here or there. we don't need any more rain right now that's for sure. we didn't have a drought last year. it was normal here.

last year it warmed up early but this year it's warming up late. need it to be in between but nothing is perfect which is the whole fault of the human existence.

Yes. My global warming is broken too. Maybe we can all let our trucks and mowers idle a bit and get it going again?
