El Nino

If the snow-shovelling marathons and constant cold weather alerts wore you down this winter, you'll be happy to hear this: Climatologists are predicting that next winter will probably be a warm one.

That's because an El Nino with the tendency to send warm breezes toward North America appears to be building in the Pacific Ocean, reports the Climate Prediction Center at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Many Canadians will find that a welcome change after an unusually cold and snowy winter, blamed in part on the weakening of a polar vortex spinning above the North Pole.
I'm not that eager to experience winter yet, even a warm one.

Still, the only 2 detested words still linger on TV everyday since last August... " Below Seasonal"
Winter is still hanging in there.... :|

Spring has finally arrived here too, 80's during the day and 60 nighttime...maybe even 90 one day this week they say.
Love it!

El nino means heavy rains here. This month we experience rainfall almost every day, but it's too early to tell if this is really El nino's influence. I need sun and more sun 8)
