Indulge me for a minute while I vent about the over-use of the phrase “extreme weather”. It is so commonly thrown around these days, that you would think any weather that is not sunny and 70 degrees should be classified as abnormal.
The simple fact is this; our “normal” weather is characterized by extremes. Every minute of every day brings some sort of weather extreme somewhere. It always has, and always will.
Our weather within this ocean of air is never static. It moves and morphs, but never maintains. Extremes of heat, cold, rain, snow, and drought, play crucial roles in Nature’s balancing act.
