Snow in Mediterranean Climate?
« on: June 20, 2018, 03:58:25 AM »
I was playing a game using a Mediterranean climate no snow start, and all was good the first winter- no snow.
The next winter, it snowed!!  That's not supposed to happen.  I wonder what was going on.

There is a difference between snow and hoarfrost. Snow sticks together, and lasts. Hoarfrost is simply frozen dew and melts away as soon as the sun comes up. I've lived with both. Hoarfrost looks cool when you first wake up...everything all frosty and white....but you don't need to shovel the walkways cause it doesn't show up on concrete. It's only frozen dew, where snow covers everything.

My Bannies were very distressed.  The snow stayed a few days.  Fortunately, it did not last all winter.  Whatever one calls the white, wet, cold stuff, it is not supposed to be in the Mediterranean.

I think the people at the coast in Spain and Greece were distressed too. ;) The picture is from Spain and early last winter, I know they had snow at the Greek coast as we here up in Sweden had much warmer weather. Crazy climate! The climate change doesn't make it warmer everywhere to all times, just different and more extreme.

Well, then, Nilla, the crazy climate has affected Banished land!  I will need to make a lot of warm coats for my Bannies if this keeps up!

In January, 1949, when I was 1 year old, it snowed in the Los Angeles basin.  ???  The snow even stayed into the next day. Everyone went nuts--and every Southern Californian of my age has a page of pictures in his/her baby book standing around in the snow looking confused.

I think they actually need to increase their carbon emissions, to warm the place up. 

Lost of cows and pigs, mine and burn as much coal as you can and see if it helps.
