whats up with this weather people?

just a bit general chit chat,but is everyone around the world experiencing a bit of unusual weather this year? or is it just my imagination?
we have just had the most rainfall in december in "recorded" history since 1870.
the total so far is over 500mm or 20 inches.
i was talking to an old timer the other day & he said its all b.s.
"it comes in cycles" he says.back in the 50's & 70's was the same he recons.
dunno i've never seen such a wet winter to spring & now start of summer.it has been very persistant.
in the sub-tropics,we usually get a wet season from january into april,then it drys out for winter & spring.maybe an occasional storm,thats it.
every spring we drain our 10000 gallon tank dry,this year i could have filled 10 of them.
they said with global warming would make our area get drier.well they got that all ballsed up,soon as that come out the experts mouth, we experienced the opposite.
don't get me wrong,we have had fantastic riding weather up until december & now its just gone way over the top.
can't ride, cause you just can't.
can't go crabbing cause they've been flushed out to sea,
can't fish cause the waters black with tea tree.
been just kick'en back watching the kids play in the warm rain & getting a glow up drinking too much home made rum.
any other stories?
heres a couple of pics & short vids of our neck of the scrub.

More rain and snow here than usual. Forecast for last night was up to 3" per hour!
That would have flooded my place...

Fortunately the storm didn't have the same intentions and passed over quicker than expected (whew!).

Southern Ca got almost 25" (breaking records) in a week in the mountains and up to 10" down low with some flooding.

Gonna be a great year for snow sports (if they can get there). :P

Re: whats up with this weather people?

We had three dry days in June this year. Locals started calling it "Junerary." And our November/December were the wettest on record since the big flood back in '96.

Not a lot of worrying going on about UV exposure/damage up here lately. :^(

Re: whats up with this weather people?

The weatherman on our local news channel (look north) runs a blog, a summary of the weather for each month, this is what he had to say about several month in 2010

December
2010: The year Britain shivered.
Paul Hudson | 16:30 UK time, Thursday, 30 December 2010
Comments (4)
According to the Met Office December 2010 will turn out to be the coldest December since 1890 based on the
Central England Temperature (CET) dataset which started in 1659.


august
A very average British summer - and a new local record
Paul Hudson | 16:46 UK time, Wednesday, 1 September 2010
Comments
It has been an unusually cold end to summer here in Yorkshire. Around dawn on 31st August at RAF Leeming
temperatures fell to 2.6C, with a widespread frost on the ground. This is the coldest August night time
temperature recorded at Leeming since records began in 1947

3rd anniversary of June 2007 floods
Paul Hudson | 14:06 UK time, Friday, 25 June 2010
Comments

Today marks the 3rd anniversary of the worst summer floods ever to hit Yorkshire.
Averaged over England and Wales, June 2007 turned out to be the wettest since 1860.




May

May 2010: What a month of extremes!
Paul Hudson | 15:13 UK time, Tuesday, 25 May 2010
Comments
Sunday across much of the UK was one of the hottest on record. At Leeming in North Yorkshire, the maximum
temperature of 27.2C (81F) was second only to the record which was set in May 1947, when the mercury soared to
28.9C (84F).



january
January 2010 warmest on record. Yes really!
Paul Hudson | 22:11 UK time, Thursday, 4 February 2010
Comments
It may come as a surprise to many of you, shivering through the coldest British winter for decades, but data
released this evening shows that global temperatures, as measured by satellites, rocketed in January to a new
record.

Re: whats up with this weather people?

A few year ago in Queensland, when I was there for a visit, the dams were almost empty ,running at or below 20% capacity.

I was on the Sunshine Coast in QLD a month ago visiting a mate, he had just completed building a new house and was explaining how the laws had changed recently with building approvals due to the lack of water, he claimed you had to put an extra 10k into a house for the water catchment tanks and accessories in the suburbs due to the lack of water over there.

It sure was strange watching the rain come down non stop, and it still continues over there, just overflowing the tanks and running down creeks and the gutters. They now have floods in various places also.

Definately appears to go in cycles the weather.
