Oregon climate: from a letter to various politicians

The state climatologist doesn't believe in global climate change, but he does believe in data...

According to the Oregon Climate Service's forecast for this fall and winter, "1995, the best overall match with this year (2005), had an abundance of extreme events: floods in November and February; ice storms in December and February; extreme wind storm (biggest in at least 15 years) in December." In other words, we're probably going to be hit hard this winter; I think it's time to start preparing. In the future it seems likely we are going to have more runs of bad storm years, and I would like to see both forecasting directed to the possibility, and preparations made.
