It is easy to cherry pick extreme weather events, whichever side of the fence you are on.

As you know, I have been comparing UK weather this year with the weather of 50, 60, 70 and 80 years ago. The Texas Almanac is full of examples of the significant weather events of the past, so let’s take a look back at 1941, 51, 61 and 71:

In September 1941, a Category 3 hurricane caused great damage:

The Texas freeze up this winter made headlines worldwide, but back in 1951 it was even colder:

Ten years later, Category 4 Carla tore through the state. Carla is the second most intense storm to hit Texas, second only to the Indianola hurricane of 1886.

In 1971, Texas was hit by a paralyzing blizzard in February, as well as devastating floods from Hurricane Fern in September:

 Which all goes to show that bad weather can happen anywhere at anytime.
