I live up north because....

I organized a funding raising car wash yesterday and it started snowing and only one student showed up.  Who'd have expected snow in September?  Glad only two cars showed up...

The first winter I lived up North it snowed in April.

having lived in the South where March was considered a late snow it was an oddity for me.

I remember waking up one morning in the mountains of Pennsylvania in the middle of June to find it snowing. Funny thing was that the weather was just 70 degf and sunny the day before. You get some crazy weather sometimes.

When I was working in the arctic in the summer of 1993 we had a legitamate snowstorm on August 1st of that year causing some 3-4' snow drifts in places.  Granted, I was pretty far north at the time.

The global warming sure does seem confusing to me, however, it seems the temperature in the North is up by 4 degrees over the last 100 years I believe.  I am not sure of the timeframe.

The one animal it is proving a disaster for is polar bears because their survival depends on the ice caps where they hunt seals.  The ice caps have melted enough that their hunting season is 3 weeks shorter now then it was in the 70s and means they don't get as fat for their period they have little food.  Apparently it is now killing the survival outcomes for cubs and also reducing the birth rate.  Polar bears may very well be on a path to extinction because of the ice caps melting.  

There is a good documentary on Polar bears called "On Thin Ice."
