The weather patterns in America are ridiculous this year. You have extreme blizzards in the North and then you have extreme thunderstorms in the South along with tornadoes.

Are you an American who lives in the states going through a blizzard where you live?
Are you an American who lives in tornado or a hurricane "hot spot"?
Are you an American who lives in an are of the country where weather never gets extreme?

What was your experience going through these types of weather?

Regardless of what era we appear on the Earth, weather is never typical.

Uncommon weather is the first thing that nutjobs convince themselves, and others, is evidence of the end of the world approaching.

The weather is the weather, and even though it HAS been pretty terrible in the last year + for the America, weather-wise, as long as it isn't 100 degrees Monday, and SNOWING on Tuesday, I really don't think there is anything to get upset about.

I live in New England. We have a saying, here - if you don't like the current weather, wait ten minutes.

My experience has been cold, and wet. ^_^

I live in Michigan where we get pretty extreme low temperatures, blizzards, and a lot of severe Thunderstorms.

I also live in Missouri where the weather is all and then the next. Being in middle of USA we get cold fronts from North, and then Warm Fronts from South which=crazy tornado weather. There was the Joplin tornado last year and we had tornados in Missouri in January and some more this month.

I was just mentioning earlier because we get tornados so much and I just moved into an apartment for first time in my life, that I keep a bed in my closet and I sleep in there even if its just a thunderstorm. We've been having a lot of people die in these storms.

There is also the New Madrid Seismic Zone that scientists predict is going to destroy parts of Missouri and Tennessee Yeah I'm screwed if I stay in Missouri forever.

Edit: And its also common for it to be 30 degrees one day and 80 the next..Happens ALL the time here. Middle of USA, middle of state..Again..I am so screwed T_T

Uhm, I think you misunderstood me. I'm saying WEATHER is NEVER TYPICAL and WEIRD WEATHER PATTERNS have EXISTED THROUGHOUT TIME and even though IT IS NOT FUN FOR ANYONE it is NOT ANYTHING NEW. Perhaps you should click on this: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=Uncommon+weather+throughout+the+centuries

I can't explain your weather >.< I'm not a meteorologist. If I was, I would be even less capable of explaining your weather to you ^_^

@kenkorrupt all of your comments are correct. I have been telling ppl the same thing that you commented but all I get from some ppl is this whole thing that weather is connected to religion which is not true. There are going to be one of those rare moments where the weather is not going be what we thought it would be. Half the time meteorologists are going to wrong about the current weather even with the current satellite radar and crap like that. Technology cant predict everything to the last detail and mother nature will turn on us at it pleases.

When it starts raining frogs, or we notice our rivers are blood red, maybe THEN there may be some divine connection - but yeah, in general the weather is just the weather. Funny how much technology we have which is used to predict weather, yet nothing is 100% solid when it comes to forecasting. Meteorology is sure an imperfect science!

Well yeah lol but we need to learn that the Earth will work its own magic whether it be natural or divine. Some weather patterns we'll never explain but extreme weather is bound to happen because it balances out the biological population and well ecological stability. Some parts of nature is too little or too much and so thats where catastrophic events come in at. Sometimes nature maybe behind in its patterns and the consequences are dire.

I live in southern California, the desert area. You'd expect it to be warm, but it usually gets way below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. The warmest it's been has been 50 degrees. What's annoying is that one day it'll be warmer, but the next it's snowing, literally. It's ongoing over and over, and there's been small snow storms on and off in the past three weeks.

I hate the cold, as I get older, I REALLY hate the cold. I think I'l retire to the Us Virgin Islands or maybe Guam. Have I mentioned that I hate the cold?

Newsflash to everyone:

This is nothing new people. This kind of weather will happen every once in a while, and once in a few years or more. The way some of you are posting, you act like this only happened in 2012 and then throw up the religious bullshit. I was waiting for someone to predictably type "global warming", but that prediction didn't come true to my surprise.

The OP acts like only america is getting this weather......so in other words the rest of the world never got weather like this in the history of this planet? Okaaaaaaay.
