A winter storm is an event in which the dominant varieties of precipitation are formed that only occur at low temperatures, such as snow or sleet, or a rainstorm where ground temperatures are low enough to allow ice to form (i.e. freezing rain). In temperate continental climates, these storms are not necessarily restricted to the winter season, but may occur in the late autumn and early spring as well. Very rarely, they may form in summer, though it would have to be abnormally cold.

2,000 Years of Continental Climate Changes. Climate change is a complicated, and sometimes controversial, global topic.  I really like this data visualization of 2,000 Years of Continental Climate Changes that was included as part of the report published by the “2K Network” of the International Geosphere Biosphere Program (IGBP) Past Global Changes (PAGES) project. Each color band represents a 30-year mean temperature found on each continent.

New Study Shows How Climate Change Is Already Reshaping The Earth... About 5.7% of the global total land area has shifted toward warmer and drier climate types from 1950–2010, and significant changes include expansion of arid and high-latitude continental climate zones, shrinkage in polar and mid-latitude continental climates. | ThinkProgress ... #Climate #ClimateChange #Enviroment

Last of the Peonies (Paeinia ‘Mrs. FDR’, ‘Nick Shaylor’, ‘Moon River’) lots of David Austin Roses (Rosa ‘Heritage’, ‘Wollerton Old Hall, ‘Jude the Obscure’, ‘Geoff Hamilton’, + ‘Eden’, ‘Sweet Drift’, (Lonicera ’Gold Flame’) Honeysuckle, Virginia Sweerspire (Itea virginica ‘Henry’s Garnet). Here in our mid-continental climate the sequence is in rapid fire most of the time, I envy the coastal farms where the succession of bloom happens at a more leisurely pace. Do you ever have Peonies with…

Thus far, we have been traveling and working along the western edge, but this morning, we crossed the tip and passed into a different world...
