Weather, Weather All The Time

Weather is the safest and most common subject of human conversation. No, I can't prove that, but you know it's true.
Then why, pray tell, do we know so little about it, we being you and me, not the people who actually know something about weather. I say it's because weather is science and, frankly, most of us avoid science like it was, well, the plague. Which is also science.
So although the Northwest winter is often like this give or take a few degrees and inches of rain, the rest of the country is having really warm weather this winter.
Here's why.
Not once, not once in the whole article did they say La Nina, although they had to bring up climate change, which turned the comment thread into a shitstorm as usual.
