The best explanation I have heard for the weather changes in general is that the decreasing temperature differential between the Arctic and the lower latitudes is weakening the jet stream and its ability to steer/control the weather the way we are used to. But that is a pretty general explanation.

Hmmm, that makes me wonder. Does the Antarctic have its own version of the jet stream?

The baffling Piri Reis Map of 1513: It showed Antarctica centuries before discovery, but without its ice cap

Yes Antarctica has a jet stream. Now the story you are about to read is true. My theory of an earth crust shift about 14 thousand years ago is backed by Albert Einstein. There are pyramids in Antarctica and yet we don't investigate due to harsh weather. I say BS, there is so much to learn from what is under Antarctica and yet we went the moon instead. A dead rock with no atmosphere lol.

I don't know about number and intensity of storms. The foothills are always prone to that action.

Its just dismal and wet. Not enough heat to get the real nasty stuff going around here.

Not sure how farming makes for available moisture? Speaking of farming I'm pretty well out, still interested but don't have enough land anymore to be personally concerned. One still doesn't like to see the struggles going on but that's the way that business works.

Calgary's population has increased 6 fold in my lifetime, as has the accompanying materialism. Its in the hail belt so not surprising when a hail event happens it gets more expensive every-time. At least to my simplistic eye.

Its lush and green and no smoke so there is always an upside.

A few hours later there was 5.4 tremor down here, but fortunately it was well offshore so did no damage.

Definitely not the Big One...

it looked nasty but a little lightening, which has gone through. we still have rain but nothing extreme. We did not experience heavy winds.

It started about 5:15 all we have left is much needed light rain.
