    Winter is warmer than normal here - no real winter yet though we have about a month and a half left for it to arrive.

    Last winter was warmer than normal as well.

    Same here in Nova Scotia. Far warmer than usual, huge reduction in our heating bills this winter. Yes, recently we've had some snow, but here it is mid January and the coldest temps we've had was one night of -10C. "Normal" would be quite a few days of of at least -20C by now. Typical of this year, last night was -5C, while normal average is -10C. And although lower heating bills are great, all is not good. Over the last 10 years we've had insect pests to deal with that would never survive our traditional winters, thrive and are destroying vast areas of our forests, and presenting us with diseases we never had to deal with before, brought in by insects that now survive our warmer winters.
    Our climate has definitely changed, especially over the last decade. Winter for us, isn't winter any more.

    Monsoon is right! Here in the Atlantic Provinces we've had unprecedented heavy rains and a lot of damage from flooding, roads washed out, villages isolated by flooding and washouts, when normally we'd be having winter and snow. Even my diversion dam was partly washed away by huge torrents. Thought I'd be screwed till Summer, but the weather was mild enough that once the flooding subsided, I was able to make temporary repairs that hopefully will see me through the rest of this so-called Winter.

    if it's winter you want, i'd be happy if you took it away from me.

    Here in Australia the monsoon has intensified right down to 38 deg(lat). Water water everywhere by not a drop to drink. This is a direct result of global warming years of drought and now the biggest wet with more to come,

    Sure, http://www.bom.gov.au/hydro/flood/qld/fld_history/brisbane_history.shtml

    The Brisbane/Queensland area seems to be flood prone long before any thought of "Global Warming".

    Obviously major upheavals world wide. Been seeing the news out of Australia and thinking there but the grace of God, go us!
    We wish you safety and the ability to get back on your feet when the flooding subsides.

    Actually the Austraşian flooding is a La Niña affected event. No how much climate change has affected La Niña - who knows.
