we've seen it all, and have for thousands of years of recorded history.
Before that the earth has gone through a lot worse during its several billion year history.
So there's nothing new about "extreme weather", except the way it's reported that's becoming ever more sensationalist and widespread.
Where a heatwave in the 1940s would be reported in regional papers, in the 19760s in national papers, today it's global news and hailed as "global warming is here to destroy the world".
Me? I love Seattle's non-weather, I prefer waiting for the earthquake to suffering through the cold (I grew up in the mountains of Montana) or the extreme heat (I lived for 3 years in Tuscon 113 deg heat and Raleigh 90 deg heat with 99% humidity) or all that rainy, muggy, hurricane/tornado stuff of the SE.
