What I'm about to say is from my own experience and I have no data to back it up...over the past 30-40 years around here, the annual temperature curve seems to have flattened a little. The winters aren't as cold as they were back in the 70s and 80s, but then the summers aren't as warm either. On top of that, there are more intense storms here than there used to be. Back in the old days, a single rain event with 100+ mm of rain was pretty much unheard of. Now it's almost an annual event. Things have changed...whether it's natural or human-made...Idk. I find myself hoping that it's part of the natural ebb and flow of the global climate...but there's a part of me that thinks that maybe we (humans) f*cked up.
