First its warm ,then we are shivering with an icy blast from the arctic (-10 or so) then its floods and.....
It starts all over again. Seasons? What seasons? Only two weeks ago whilst I was driving on route from Nottingham to Ilkeston ( here in the UK) , squirrels which are supposed to be hibernating were emerging out into the open in MID-JANUARY!, only to be caught out by the arctic blast a week or so later.
All over the world it seems our friend ' El-Nino' has been creating havoc.
No doubt everyone has a story to tell about unusual weather phenomenar.
Global warming is a severe issue that will not go away.
Anyone with some fascinating , but TRUE details to tell - I am keen to hear about!
And if any of this sounds far-fetched, just remember that we have found mammoth flash-frozen in glaciers, with food still in their mouths. Point; the weather is very weird. And we are nowhere near figuring out if man has any part in this process or if it is simply a natural cycle. We know we have had ice-ages and much higher temperatures at various times throughout earth's past.

What takes the piss is not the weather itself, it's the unpredictable nature of it. Last week we were all wrapped up in layers of sweaters, fleece, winter jackets, gloves, scarves, you name it, the full monty. Today i was walking around in a t-shirt and denim jacket.
