The Increasing Frequency of the Increasing Intensity of Storms

This summer in Wisconsin we have experienced many intense storms that just don’t want to quit.  A few weeks ago we were heading back to Milwaukee from attending an event in Madison and witnessed a light show over the course of traveling 45 minutes that had hundreds and hundreds of lightning strikes; it was like watching Summerfest fireworks.  Here’s a radar of the intense storm system, stretching nearly the entire distance between the two cities:

And then there was this past week, where the intensity of the storm and it’s aftermath (a SUV in a huge sinkhole, major flooding throughout Milwaukee) made the national news.

If you don’t think that weather is getting more extreme, you don’t get out much.
