Heat, Ice Storms, Droughts, Floods, Tornado in NYC

 - Jan 1, 2008
Right from the beginning, 2007 proved it would have some very wild weather.

To start with, it was the warmest January worldwide since record keeping began, 1.53 degrees above normal. England had its warmest April in the 348 year that they have been keeping records there. Then there is the freaky stuff like the tornado in New York, the cyclones in the Middle East, the extreme drought in the American south that is dry up Lake Lanier, floods in Europe and California, ice storms in the US and the scary rate of the melting of the Arctic ice cap. Put all together and 2007 is a year of weather gone wild.
