What The Hell Is Wrong With The Weather?

Wed Apr 22, 2009 9:45 pm

Mini rant here, A.net boys, girls and other beings.

H'okay. So I'm sure my fellow YYC and YEG friends are sharing the same anger/sadness/whatever of the current weather situation.

Monday: it was nice. Sunny, probably around 15C. Drove up to Edmonton, slight breeze at 12C.

Tuesday: when I left Edmonton, it was still nice. Slightly cloudy, but around 10-12C. When I got back into Calgary around 1300, my thermometer on my weather station said 21C.

Today: SNOW. IN APRIL. SNOW. Did the weather Gods decide that it was time for some more of this #*%@? *sigh*

I hate this city.  grumpy

Global Warming is fake. See its snowing in April.. Must be Global Cooling

Can't be Global Warming...the fashionable term is Man-Made Abrupt Climate Change. See that way, any shift in the weather can be blamed on my exhaling.

Settle down...it's Spring. We've had snow in May down here.

And then some. The worst snowfall we had in Detroit was in April:

That must explain why the temperature rose two degrees after I spent all day sneezing due to obscene amounts of pollen!

I like my sunny, warm spring weather, though.

Maybe I am overreacting, but after the winter YYC had...ugh, I just want the snow to go away. Save it for Alaska and Siberia.

I don't care, it's been warm here for once and for April that's pretty rare.

I'm not complaining as I'm sure the other UK members aren't!  Wink

I'm OK with the weather. We've had a few blah days recently but it's going to be sunny and 27ºC here in Ottawa!

Why is it that the West has to suffer in the bitter cold while the East gets all the good weather?

I am not from up north, but I have been in NY in almost mid April and have seen snow, granted it isn't the norm but I didn't think anything of it, the weather is crazy at times, you guys are in Canada I thought snow in April was almost normal.. (just kidding Big grin)

First time I visited Calgary was in April (1977). I was there 5 days, and every day it snowed and every day it got to 65F. Sometimes it snowed in the middle of the day and was 65F at night. So ???not much has changed.

In SE Aus a very hot summer and autumn, but the first snows will hit the Snowy Mtns about on schedule Fri/Sat this week.
