    We have only seen two rainstorms this winter here on the west coast. It's looking like a drought is on the way. In San Francisco, it's currently been sunny and mild-NO clouds at all. The air is starting to look like L.A.
    From YOUR perspective, has the weather pattern become unusual in your part of the Country-or are you getting what is typical?

    definitely irregular out here in So. Oregon. my mom was commenting the other day that back home it was in the mid sixties and they hadn't had any big storms yet, and no rain for over a week. last year this time i had snow and ice here at college in SE Oregon and this year we've gotten one storm that layed down a little snow about a month ago and now nothing since! Where's the winter at?!?

    Exactly! Where's winter?? Usually here we would've had 4-5 good drenchers and a lot of showery days. Where's "back home" where your mom is?

    Az doesnt really have a "regular" weather pattern. In the summer time, I guess, as its hotter than hell for months with no rain.

    Here in IN started off really wet, like flooding. Summer was not hot at all, fall I felt like it was a little warmer. Leaves really didn't have any color, the bug's where I live were low, but in the woods heavy (ticks)
    Now we have snow and somewhat cold.
    Down on the farm (near KY), really bad winds. I bet all other the changes are here.

    I've definitely noticed a difference this year, there's been no big rain storms at all, its actually been pretty nice the last week or so, we haven't even had any snow yet. Usually the skit resorts here are open first week of december, and so far its still bare up there. sucks big time I want to go boarding, or at least drive the Taco in the snow!! for sure some weird weather. oh Im on southern Vancouver Island in BC.

    Nothing yet, brand new!
    We had a lot of rain this summer. So much that there was minor flooding in some areas that have been upgraded by the Army Corps of Engineers. Last winter it was fleeping cold and snowy and this year it's on track to do the same.
    If there is global warming somewhere out there send it this way.
