    It's been happening more and more. I wonder too, if it's that the weather isn't getting harder to predict because perhaps our patterns are more volatile due to climate change issues?

    Locally--the weather has been really off a lot lately. Not just a little either. Every year our forecasters get some things off, it happens, but lately it just seems to happen more and more.


    •  Yes, happened here in Nebr too (1+ / 0-)

      We recently had incredible hype for a winter storm (they even named it!!), in the end it was just a couple inches or so. I wonder if people are going to start ignoring the warnings after this.

      As for local variations, the past few summers I've noticed rain patterns wildly different every mile or so. Or was it always like this and I never noticed?? People report in their rain totals at the post office, so when I go in they ask me what I got (we all measure our rainfall in hundredths of an inch, probably you do in Okla. too). I'll learn that south of town they got 3 inches, I (five miles away) got 30 hundredths and a half-mile north east of me a guy got an inch and a half. This seems odd to me...

      I love it that Obama's channeling Harry Truman: "I don't give 'em hell; I just tell the truth and they think it's hell!"
