Will GW just cause more winter storms in Northeast US or will all of US have colder winters ? This winter in East TX we had three record cold snaps and I lost a lot of Camellia Japonica buds and blooms. Most years I lose a few blooms but usually not the buds also. This is the most I have lost in 20 years. I am hoping we will not get the cold like the northeast.. I have watched the weather channels ; they usually explain how GW causes more storms/ rain, etc, but they have not yet explained the relationship to GW for these storms.
