And of course, mixed in with the speeders are those who approach a side street uphill at 3 mph and end up sideways unable to make it, or even go back down, blocking the way and forcing others to stop.Ain't it the truth. We have a couple of nearby interstates with increased 70 mph speed limits and some go much faster, and they don't let bad weather slow them down.
Yeppers, odd climate patterns, including unusual winters, are the new normal. And unusual is just the start.darn globel warming!!
I would be 'meh' if I won a competition against a half dozen local competitors and was then declared World Champion. Too small of a sample to make that claim remotely true.Dude, that's 170 years. 62,092 days. If you entered a race with 62,092 competitors and won, would you be "meh" about it? This is serious, you might be annoyed about it because it's happening so often.
We had a tornado a few years ago strike a town ~40miles north of us. I was blown away...I've lived in Oregon nearly 50 years and never heard of a tornado! Well, a little research turned up the tidbit that Oregon averages 2-3 tornadoes a year. Usually on the Eastern half of the state that is vast, and very lightly populated. Most happen without a single witness...but, now we have the eyes in the sky, and they miss nothing .Therewere 820 natural catastrophes in 2019, slightly below the previous year but well above the long-term average of 520. Hurricanes, wildfires and floods cost the world $150 billion in 2019 and losses for business and the economy are only expected to increase, because of a decade-long rise in natural catastrophes with direct links to climate change.
