Ah, the good old days: Warmist Kelly Henderson looks back fondly at the 1990s, when "everything seemed to be in balance" before CO2 allegedly ruined the Virginia weather

Being from Northern Virginia in the suburbs right outside of Washington, D.C., I was also fortunate enough to experience the region’s fairly consistent climate throughout the seasons. Growing up the late 1980’s and 1990’s (as part of the millennial generation), I was experienced what I considered a “normal” temperate climate: mildly-cold winters with three to four big snows per season, a mild spring with some rain and wind, muggy, warm summers with the nightly thunderstorm (rarely with temperatures hotter than 90 though) and colorful, crisp, cool autumns. Everything seemed to be in balance and it was rare that a massive storm or extreme weather event would come through and throw off the balance (with the exception of hurricanes Fran, Bonnie and Floyd which brought heavy rains, flooding and a lot of damage from the tidal basin area up to the Shenandoah Valley). These days, I’m sad to say extreme weather events hitting Virginia are no longer a rarity.
