Have you've noticed signs of significant climate change where you live and what are they?

Yes.

We had a measurable snowfall in May.

Not unheard of, but somewhat unusual, and possibly a sign of the coming Mini Ice Age.

Man made global warming doesn’t exist, so just like normal May is the beginning of rainy season. Now if the rain starts coming 10 inches a day for the next year then we might have a issue.

Talking in the scale of my lifetime of about four decades...

Within last 5 years, we've had several hottest summers and warmest winters I've seen, including first times that there wasn't snow on ground at christmas and last summer (or possibly one before) there was an over two week streak of high temps that you've usually seen maybe 5 days along the whole summer. Also springs seem to have gotten more rainy, having previously been the one season when you don't have water coming down in some form.

One interesting thing are jackdaws. About 20 years ago I had never seen one, barely knew what it is. Then one year a flock appeared and they've stayed since, increasing in numbers. Now you're bound to see and hear some if you go out (aside when they're nesting), they're more common than gulls or crows and magpies and they've chased pigeons from the "downtown", hardly ever see pigeons anymore while they used to be almost daily bird. This is happening whole wide of Finland, they're spreading to north.
