The weather this 2017/2018 has been outrageous. 2018 started with a chill in the East, breaking the record for the coldest weather recorded in dozen of cities. In New York the coldest weather recorded was in 1981 of 21.4 degrees and the record was broken by 5 degrees leaving the new record of 16.4 degrees.

When there is a lot of precipitation the canals and river beds over flow resulting in floods. Sadly the United States of America spent roughly about three hundred billion in natural disasters. Consisting of Floods, Hurricanes, Tornadoes, Hail, Wildfires and droughts.

Down here in Turlock, California  there will be a couple of showers during the month of January 2018. The Turlock monthly weather calendar shows that there will not be many more showers now that Winter is coming to an end.

Throughout this 2017 and 2018 winter, the eastern side of the United States has been unfortunate with the amount of rain and snow pouring down on them. Leaving them locked in at home due to streets being covered in inches of snow and some lakes and waterways being frozen.

‘The same slippery conditions and dangerous wind chills swept across several southern states Tuesday, shutting down interstates, triggering highway crashes, closing airport runways and prompting widespread school closings. Snow fell in a wide band that stretched from southeastern Texas all the way to western Massachusetts.’

Winter sports that include of snow have been maneuvering through some tough weather. Due to the bipolar weather the snow conditions are always changing. When it gets to hot the snow melts and becomes very slushy. And when it gets cold the snow can get very icy and become harder to keep control. These sports include of skiing and snowboarding.

Weather is not something we can always be 100% sure about. Some natural disasters are uncalled for and take us by surprise. The Ventura wildfire was one of the biggest fires. It being about roughly 143,000 acres. Unfortunately one life was lost due to a car crash and the inhailing the smoke.
