This has been one of the coldest winters I’ve lived through in my 50 years. And snowy. My brother the scientist explains the snow and global warming in that where the temperature has increased worldwide, more water evaporates. That water absorbed in the atmosphere must have a place to eventually go … therefore more snow and more rain.
Of course, it’s still cold but of course that’s because our Earth still turns and when one part is further from the sun, it’ll be colder. So… how cold is it where you are? DJD of In Our Backyard shows how cold it is there,
If you take a good look toward the back of the bird bath you’ll see something interesting. The ice, which is usually just a flat sheet, has what looks like ripples in it and it’s actually flowing up over the back edge. The only explanation I can come up with is this. As the ice was forming, the wind was constantly blowing water toward the back of the bird bath which then froze in place.
