Weather goes in cycles. I remember winters with heavy snowfall and winters with no snowfall, summers win no rain and summers with so much rain there were continual landslides where I now live. My parents and grandparents remember years with severe drought and years with excessive rain.
 
Where I currently live, there is a definite yearly pattern where we have a cold snap in October and a nice warm period in early November. Likewise, in late spring, it will warm and then we'll get hit with a very cold storm in May or early June. For the longest time, some of the local weathermen would act like this was a big surprise. Fortunately, they now said "as expected" or "like every year since recorded history."
 
On top of all nature doesn't really care. It just is. There is very strong evidence, in fact, that the 20th century was an anomaly--that it was IN GENERAL unusually moderate in many climes. Just be glad we aren't living during the Younger Dryas.
 
Oh, and don't forget the "Blizzard of 1977." I lived east of Buffalo and have pictures of mountainous snow piles on my street. I was also remembering when I moved to my current state 21 years ago; it was during the coldest two weeks in recorded history in the state--two weeks below zero during the day, 20 below zero at night. It was a last minute move and I'd forgotten that I had warm temperature wiper fluid in my car--it froze solid.
