It’s nuts, isn’t it? I’ve always had an interest in the weather. A fascination with what Mother Nature can do and, even, the wrath of what she’s capable of. Even when I was really young.
Saying that, I can never remember these numerous and constant wind events, even into my 20s. Yeah, yeah, we’d get the occasional tropical system, the occasional Nor’easter, the typical Summer-time severe thunderstorms…but I can never remember getting constantly battered by wind events every month like we have for the past 10-15 years (that seem to get more severe as time goes by)…like you pointed out.
I know a lot of you like seeing weather do what it can do, and I’m certainly guilty of it too. But…this direction our area is going in is, frankly, a scary one, and, I fear, only going to get worse. Our ocean temperatures go up a degree every summer. The 60mph gusts become a little more unsurprising. The tornadoes become a more regular occurrence. Etc etc.
The fact anyone can argue with science just, simply, blows my mind. It’s frightening actually how people can deny the undeniable.
