Mid May: Oslo prepares ski tracks after half a meter of snow fall

"Ski tracks are prepped and half a meter of snow give a strange spring atmosphere in Oslomarka. The deciduous trees bends over the largest snowfall in May for 50 years."

“That we prepare trails after Easter is completely abnormal. It has never been done in May, says Johansson." 

Spring in June? Summer in July and Fall in August?


It is called Global Warming with Random Drizzles of Snow! Just as predicted by Al Gore ; - ?

No snow here but an unusually wide temperature band for this time of year and has been going on for a few weeks
Anywhere from 40 to 80+ F (4 to 26+ C)

Plants seem to be doing fine.  Not sure about very young birds and animals.

It's been snowing here for 24 hours now and it's still going. It's hard to know how much has fallen because most of it melts as soon as it hit the ground. There's at least 3-4 inches but the total that fell must be at least 6" and maybe as high as 9".
