Title: What's the Weather Like Where You Are?
Post by: punatic on December 02, 2010, 08:56:21 AM
We all live all over the place... So what's the weather like where you are?

Me - 66⁰F - clear - cool breeze coming down off of Mauna Loa - sky full of stars - no moon till later.

Out in a lawn recliner on the lanai, a Torpedo in my left hand, wife-made lumpia in my right... yum!

Seriously?  The guy who lives in Hawaii wants to know what our weather is like?  Are you sure you're not just trying to rub it in? :)

37F.  Overcast.  I have no idea where the wind is coming from because it's too damn cold to be outside in a weazeltoe state of dress.

We should have sun breaks for the next several days though, so there's that.

27 f/-3 c, a reasonable amount of snow on the ground. Getting up to 43 f this weekend, so I may go out and throw the ol' pigskin on the grounds of the chateau with my nephew. Overcast, overcast, overcast. I miss NYC winters. All sun all the time, blistering cold, but lots of sun.

Eastern PA was windy as heck, with horizontal monsoon, temps in the 50's yesterday, then cleared and dropped into the 30's. Manchester UK, where I am now is 32º and has about an inch of snow on the ground.

Hey winter finally made it here too! 52 frigid degree this morning, and the high is expected to be 72... And of course it will be sunny here in Fort Lauderdale.

Very windy and rainy in New Hampshire yesterday, but it did blow the rest of my leaves onto the neighbor's property so there's that.  Back into the low-mid 40's and mostly sunny the rest of the week.  Snow showers predicted for Monday.  Here comes winter.

19°F currently, high of 27°F today. Three feet on the ground, and there's supposed to be another 4-8" by the weekend. Days are beautiful, clear blue skies, and it snows almost every night. (We make our own weather.) Highs for the weekend are supposed to be right around freezing, so unless the snow is bad I'm going to get in my last homebrew for the season. The last time it was above freezing was Nov 15. So a really mild winter so far.

And no, I wouldn't trade it for Hawai'i.

Yeah, sounds like rubbing it in to me; after a warm fall, winter just arrived.  You could have asked this in October...

Makes me want to ask, how much is a gallon of milk or gas or some other non-local commodity.

So, yeah, it's 29F now, but milk is $1.99 and gas is $2.89.

Not rubbing it in.  When one lives 2000 miles from the nearest continent one has a tendency to lose track of what everyone else is up to.  Just curious.  It's hard to imagine having to give up brewing due to cold weather...

If I want snowy peaks I drive up Mauna Kea or Mauna Loa.  Their peaks (nearly 14,000 ft.) got down to 25°F last night. We'll be getting our first snow soon.

I could have done without waking up to 16F yesterday.  54F on Sunday and "feels like temp" of -1 yesterday.  Too early in Dec. for those temps.

At least everyone's allergies are finally done for the year, at least here in Des Moines.   ::)

Give up brewing because of cold weather?  Heck no!  This is when I do almost all my brewing.  It gets too dang hot in the summer here in Iowa to brew much of anything without temp control and my wife has told me fairly emphatically that I will not buy anymore refrigeration equipment.

I haven't found a day yet that was too cold to brew.   Don't ask about fuel efficiency though (Is 10lbs of propane too much for 5 gallons of beer?). ;D

This whole thread reminds me of a story.  I was in Petaluma, Cal trying to get directions from a local to a brewpub and they commented that it must be tough living in Florida what with all the hurricanes.  I replied that it's probably not much different than living with the constant threat of earthquakes, except that the hurricanes move a lot slower so you can get out of their way. 
Later I happened to walk back in to hear the same guy say, "what is it about these Florida guys?  Whenever you mention hurricanes they always say something about earthquakes."  Umm, you're living right on top of the S.A. fault, guy.
One of my favorite joys is to be brewing outside on a sunny Sunday afternoon in December, watching people on TV play football in a blizzard.  I never get enough of that.
I have no idea how much milk costs, but gas is $2.77.

In the summer of 2004 we had 4 hurricanes in 6 weeks in Florida.  Two months later I moved to Hawaii, only to find out that here we have hurricanes, earthquakes, lava flows and tsunamis.  Nice trade ay?

In the fall of '05 I was sitting at the Lava Lounge in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park having a pint of Kona Brewing's Lavaman Red.  Several of the regulars and I were watching coverage of the events in New Orleans.  They started making comments about how stupid it was to have a city there in the first place, and how stupid it would be to rebuild.

Well, unknown to them at the time, my mother's side of the family is from New Orleans and I consider it to be home.

Says I, "So you think it's stupid to live in a city that floods?  As compared to... oh say, living on the summit of an erupting volcano?"

In the 5+ years since, I have heard no more disparaging remarks about New Orleans in the Lava Lounge.

high 20's and snow this weekend. may have to install the exaust fan in the basement for brewing this weekend.

On that note it I have embarked on the mission to create a house beer unique to me. i think it is going to be a long road with alot of beer made but not what i want. this is going to be fun.

Well, by the time I got to the summit of Mauna Kea the snow had started melting a bit.  Not ideal for snowboarding, but pretty cool none the less.

Today, down here near sea level, we'll have a high near 80, with  low tonight of 66.

Having some friends over for football, beer and BBQ; smoked pork cannon balls and tri-tip.  I have Sunday Ticket so this is Football Central on Sundays.  The early games start at 8AM, the later games at 11:15AM and SNF starts at 3:30PM.  I DVR the early games and we watch SNF in real time if it is a good match up.

I love a good wind storm and the destruction it leaves in my yard.  I'm not a big fan of trees and branches hitting my house though.  It's definitely time to have the tree guys out to windsail the trees again.  I've got three 6-8 inch "trees" down in the yard, more like the tops of trees.   We have these big leaf maples that tend to shed the tops, it's kind of weird.  They're really crappy trees, they grow in clumps and make a mess.  The bottoms of the trees are like 18 inches around though, except that's 2-3 feet from the ground because the trunks all merge together into a big mass.  It should make some good smoking wood once I get them chopped up though :)

22.6F outside right now, 38.9F in the garage.  A couple of inches of snow in the yard from the past couple of days, but no more in the forecast.  It should be clear and cold for the next few days.

Went "sledding" with the kids today, which consisted of them sitting on a sled and me pulling the sled and running really fast, then whipping them forward and letting go.   They got some ok speed going down a small decline in the backyard, it was a lot of fun for them until one crashed straight into a tree.   :'( 

From then on we had "stopping practice", which was the same as above except they jumped off the back whenever they felt like it. ;D

So you didn't buy a generator after the storm in 1998?  First thing I did the summer after the 2008 Ice Storm in New England.  We were without power for 6 days as well.  Used it in Feb 2010 when the wind storms came through and knocked out power for 2 days.  Best investment I've ever made.

Expecting snow on Wednesday but the weather guys won't commit because they've been way off all season.  This past Saturday we were supposed to get 6 inches of snow but I could have used a broom to clean my driveway.

Correct.  No snow in Florida.  On very cold nights where the temp dips below freezing there'll be frost on the roof shingles first thing in the a.m., but that usually disappears within 30 minutes of the sun coming up.  We do see the occasional snow flurries when it is "bitterly cold" (or us Floridians), but nothing stays on the ground.

The only "snow and ice" we get here in Jacksonville is when somebody accidentally leaves the automatic sprinklers on during the cold snaps--they're often programmed to water at night.  Kind of cool to see the brilliant sparkle of the morning sun striking the occasional icicle covered tree or bush--reminds me of the ice storms in Minnesota which I'm all too happy to leave permanently behind after living there for 8 years.

This seems like a thread worth reviving . . . they say 2-6 inches of snow tomorrow, and another 1-2 tomorrow night.  It will probably stick around for a couple of days.  This is not typical Seattle weather.

It's around 35 now.  Calling for 49 later today.  It's overcast and is supposed to snow tomorrow night.

Sooo... it's pretty much late February in Central Iowa.  This time of year it may hit 80 and may drop to -10 and it may do both in the same 24 hour period.  It keeps life interesting.

I was thinking peppers and tomatoes, and hops would be ok if you can control diseases, I'm thinking mildew with the high humidity.

Our predicted massive winter snowstorm (up to 6" in some places) caused schools to be canceled for the day.  It is not snowing.  We have less than an inch on the grass and the roads are completely clear. ::)

They must have figured it would be easier to keep the kids home than to get them to school and have to send them home again.  Still no snow and Wednesdays are short school days so the kids would all have been sent home in less than an hour in any event. :-\  That's fine, we're having fun. ;D

There's still a Winter Storm Warning! and it's still supposed to snow.  Although to be fair to the meteorologists, they did say it was only an 80-90% chance of snow.

No, they list it as "chance of precip".  Although maybe it is area, and if 80% of the area is getting precip then the chance of precip for any given spot is 80%.  I don't really know how they do it.

Anyway, I think it is finally starting to snow very lightly.  Hard to tell, could be blowing off of the trees.

That seems likely for a prediction. Darn meteorologists.

The last cold snap really did a number on our plants. My sago palm (which I thought was ok) will probably die and some other palm like plants that I have look bad. The fig trees might make it.  :(

Raintree says black mission should handle 15F, but I don't know how mature of a tree they're talking about.  I hope it works out, to me the worst thing about replacing trees is the set back in terms of growth and fruit production.

My hops have already broken ground, we'll see how they survive the coming cold snap.

The storm finally hit, starting around 6.  We got half an inch of graupel in about 15 minutes, tapering off into steady snow.  We're up to 4.5+ inches and counting, I think school will be canceled again tomorrow for sure.  At least this time there will be snow for us to go play in!

Nice day today in NH.  Sunny with a few high clouds, highs going to about 40F.

Tonight we are supposed to get snow, changing to sleet and freezing rain by the morning commute ( yippee ) and possbily changing to rain.  Only expecting about 1-3 inches of snow, but it will be that "OH MY #$%^@## BACK" kinda snow to shovel.

We got over 5 inches, and expect a little more today.  That's a huge amount for this area, and with the low temps for the next couple of days I expect it to stick around.  School was canceled as expected, and might be tomorrow too.  It's like a mini-vacation :)

That's the way it goes here :)

Apparently there's been some fallout for the district over canceling classes when there was no snow.  I can see why some parents were irritated.  On the other hand, I heard that a few years ago something like 200 grade school kids got stranded at school and had to spend the night in the gym with teachers.  I imagine there were a lot of irritated parents over that one too.

The real question is what they will do for tomorrow.  The roads are clear but very wet, and it's supposed to drop to 20 tonight.  Maybe a late start to let the roads thaw?  I guess I'll find out in the morning.

Ahh I remember the days in my youth when the power would go out for a week. We had a gas stove and a wood stove so all are our friends in the neighborhood would come over for dinner. The little store down the road would give away ice cream before it could melt. In my memory it happened at least once a winter.

We lost power for 10 days at my house in Orlando after hurricane Charley.  That was in August of 2004.  Summer in Central Florida without AC or fans is less than pleasent.

Funny thing was, I was working at an Orlando Utilities power plant at the time.  Plenty of AC at work.  Unfortunately I lived in a Progress Energy service area, and power service was slow to be restored.  It was a line crew from Iowa that finally got the power back on in my neighborhood.  There were line crews from just about everywhere in the US working that hurricane.  I met some great linemen that summer.

We had four hurricanes in six weeks in 2004.  I moved to Hawaii in January 2005.

I guess our 5th season has started: the windy season.  It's calm right now with winds about 20 mph, but later it's supposed to get up around 60 or so, like the past couple of days.  While other areas get sever weather warnings about winter storms or things like that, we stay under a high fire danger alert.  We had lots of rain early last spring so the grasslands all did great, but with no moisture at all all winter this whole region is bone dry.  I've seen these spring grass fires cover 75 miles in an afternoon, usually only stopping when they get to the 4 lane highway between the towns of Eunice and Lovington. 2 years ago soldiers at an Air Force base were using live ammo of some kind at a target range and managed to burn half the buildings in a very small town on the plains.

Ahh I remember the days in my youth when the power would go out for a week. We had a gas stove and a wood stove so all are our friends in the neighborhood would come over for dinner. The little store down the road would give away ice cream before it could melt. In my memory it happened at least once a winter.

Oh man this is why I bought a generator to hook up to the main electrical panel. Last February we lost power for two days. No heat. I do not want to do that again.

Well we had some of those 50 mph gusts and my pasture was blanketed in snow
that the wind moved over into the driveway.. made a 5 foot pile along the driveway
and I hope It does NOT come again till this melts a bit.

I can definitely relate to those piles of white frozen powder. You get quite a bit more than we do on the mid-Atlantic coast...except for the noreasters.  >:(

I'm ready for spring now.

Milford is between AA and Flint.

Yeah, last March was one of the warmest ever.  This year is on the cold side.

The Triumph link was posted because I thought it was funny, looking at the drizzle outside.  A niece was in Guam for a couple of years (her husband is in the Navy).  The BIL went to visit.  He said they have the news and the sports.  No weather, maybe a quick shot of the radar.  He said every day was the same for 2 weeks.

When I left Albuquerque this morning there were snow flurries, 4 hours later I'm at home and it's 85F with 40 mph winds.  A grass fire got to within one mile of our house today with the wind blowing it straight towards us but they got it under control in time.
UPDATE:  I saw where the fire burned on my way to work today.  If it had not been stopped at the road parallel to ours it would have been at our house in 5 minutes.  There's nothing between us and that road besides a few oil storage tanks, a couple of junky houses and native grass/brush land.

True, but the oak pollen count in Florida at this time of the year is through the roof.  I sure am glad I don't have to live with that anymore.  I love big ole shady Florida oak trees, but I am way allergic to their pollen.  No oak trees here - at all.  Weird...

Heavy thunderstorming down here at sea level.  Snowing up on the summits of Mauna Loa & Mauna Kea

Lost power twice already to lightning strikes.  Woo Hoo!

Just like a typical summer afternoon in Central Florida.

It was sunny and warm enough when I got home that I mowed my front lawn.  The graupel and rain started before I was done.  Now it's 35F and snowing. :-\

It almost always is thunderstorms that deposit snow on top of Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea.  Five years ago there was snow up there until mid June.

But record cold just makes his point of climate change for him, why would that be "big news"?

I don't know what the #$%& is going on around here. A week ago it hit 80F. Since then, it feels more like the start of winter than the end of it. Yesterday I woke up to snow on the ground, today 33F and pouring rain. I have a feeling it's going to be one of those years where it's winter one week and summer the next. Luckily, my hops (all 2nd year) are going nuts, despite it all. I already have them trained on their ropes.

We still haven't had rain since around September 20, but we do have lots of forest  fires.  Last week the geniuses predicted 20% chance of rain for yesterday, but there wasn't even a cloud.  We are supposed to have a very wet monsoon season-starting in July.
Today when I went to the office it was 46F and should be around 100 by mid afternoon.  And of course very sunny.

We had a nice front come through and got some rain (finally!) for a couple hours Wednesday. Then it was gone. All the plants just loved it! We'll be going into the rainy season too come June. Last three years we got practically nothing at all. This has been bad. Silver lining about the front is that it's only been in the 80's with a cool breeze during the afternoon and down in the 50's at night. Aaaaaah.

Actually the wind has been reasonable all last week so I've been able to breathe without taking allergy meds. today is breezy, 15-20 mph but no real gusts.

Spring is here, it's just a little different in Colorado (spring = more snow).   Here on the western slope we got zero snow this winter, but now you'd think we lived in Cambodia with all the rain we've had.

I guess I lucked out on missing the rains. Every time I was in your neck of the woods this winter it was gorgeous. I had to bring shorts to GJ a couple times.

We're vacationing in Maine and just saw the sun for the first time since we got here Saturday.   It's been in the 50's and foggy/drizzly but that beats back home where it's been over 100F every day and smoky due to the fire at Carlsbad Caverns national Park.
I'll take 50F on the water with a plate of lobster and a great Maine beer(or 6) any day even if it is raining.

hot, humid, and smokey. The heat index is already 90F at 9AM. The 70,000 or so acre wildfire in the Everglades has been providing smoke several mornings, but atleast its almost out due to the rain we have had the past few days.

I heard there were locations in Iowa yesterday where the "feels like temp" was 120F-130F and actual temps 103F to 107F.  You might say its a bit warm.

It was stinking hot and humid yesterday 95F with 86% humidity. Last night we got a terrific storm with about 2" of rain. The first significant rainfall in about 3-4 weeks. Much needed.

This year's weather is really messing with the crops.  We are usually freezing sweet corn about now but the ears have been so small this year it doesn't make any sense to pay $6/baker"s dozen for corn.  The corn we've bought so far is less than half as big as past years.

If the later corn isn't better we won't bother to put up corn at all.  I'll really miss sweet corn in January.

My mother-in-law grew up in Stuttgart in Nazi Germany.  She said corn was considered only good for silage back then.  She and her brother used to sneak into the corn fields and eat raw corn.  She said it tasted wonderful.

She married my father-in-law and moved to New Jersey in 1955.  I guess the weather was better in New Jersey.

Phil, you can eat field corn, but the taste is not so good, and I do not recommend it.  If you look at the kernels on a new ear of field corn, they will look more like sweet corn, but when mature they have a dimple.  Field corn is sometimes called dimple corn.  The starch content is much higher, and the sugar is lower when the ear matures.  The flavor is then "starchy", and the kernels are tough.
Title: Re: What's the Weather Like Where You Are?
Post by: gmac on July 21, 2011, 01:10:04 PM
I've eaten tonnes of field corn but like Hop says, it gets starchy.  That's the difference.  In France, you may find that the field corn is even starchier because a lot of the corn in that area is "Flint" type corn as opposed to dent corn.  Just pick it when it's really young and milky and eat it right away because the sugars degrade very rapidly.  With enough butter and salt, it'll be fine.  I assume of course that you've asked permission to pick some...

Still over 100F everyday but the last few days we've seen clouds, that's a change.  It's already cloudy today, maybe we;'ll finally get some rain.  Other parts of New Mexico have gotten rain this week, so it should be our turn.  So far this year we're 5" below normal, but then 5" is normal for this time of year.

That fixes the lack of niacin and you won't get pallegra in a diet highin corn.  I don't know about the taste being improved.

So where are you guys located (Pinnah and 1vertical)?  It sounds like you're in the vicinty of my hometown, Montrose.  I'm in WA now, but I do miss western CO.  In keeping on topic, this has been one gray, wet summer, the second in a row.  I'm thankful we don't have the blistering heat the rest of the country is suffering through, but dang, we get very little sun 9 months of the year...we depend on July, Aug, and Sept to replenish our Vit D stores (and sanity)!  I'm running short on both!

The compressor-unit fan motor or what ever turns it on to cool the dang thing down ain't working. Tried a box fan laid on top and while that works somewhat I don't like doing it. Both of the 10k and 6k Haier window units have the living-room, dining room, kitchen and the master cooled down to a balmy 77. House fan recirculating the air to the house (with two unused rooms shut off). The dual return has one vent closed off and the one in the master pulling the air into the living room.

Not a substitute for central air and unbalanced. But it'll do until the repair is completed.

F the mortgage. I'm moving to the PNW where occasionally one sees some precipitation from time to time. ???

Mine had the same problem just last month.  Check the capacitor (silver can-looking thing about 6 inches tall) for bulging.  This part is easy to replace and only costs about $30.

One of the benefits to living in a very old house is that, in the basement, it's pretty much always 70 degrees or less. A few months ago when we had our heatwave (max around 107), I hung out in the basement for most of the evening. Nice and cool, and we got some stuff organized too.

The UK is being hit with heat and, where I am, monstrous humidity. This has been a crazy year weather wise (early heat and drought, then cool and very wet, now hot again), and is definitely having an impact on crops. There are warnings that there is going to be a significant rise in grain and hop prices in the UK as a result of poor yields stemming from the weather.

We were talking about southwest Colorado.  The early monsoon is making for some damp weather in mushroom territory.

Wyoming and BFE do seem to go together...west Texas and parts of Nevada also come to mind.  The Urban Dictionary is always a good reliable reference when it comes to vague and colloquial acronyms... :D  I think it mentions under BFE - in the middle of metaphorical nowhere.


BTW Vert, I spend the last two days above Telluride.  The only mushrooms I saw were growing out of wood.  Despite the moisture...perhaps it is just too early?

You guys do an Xmas in July (August really) too huh?  My family's is the weekend of the 13th.  So glad the weather finally broke here.  Felt nice biking to work in 73 degree weather instead of over 80 and super humid.  Even had my bedroom window open last night, loved it.  I live in Iowa City, by the way.

Too many of her her relatives live too far away.  It is terribly difficult for them to make the drive in December as they have little babies.  Iowa (I'm in Des Moines, the rest who are in Iowa live in the far NW corner (Orange City/Sioux Center areas).  Between ice and snow storms that time of year, it just never works out.

Friday I will be putting up a tree, putting the lighted inflatable snow men out front and watching my kids put out Christmas decorations.  I drew the line when my wife asked if I would put up the icicle lights.  8^[  I'll play along but only so far.

You can get "Web Enabled Weather Stations" that will display all that stuff on a webpage for you.  A buddy at work has one at his house and he get up to the second weather info from his desk at the office (I don't know why this is important to him but he can).  The formulas are also available so you can punch in real temp, humidity, and such and get a "fells like" number.

Pele has left her rift zone home @ Pu`u `O`o and is heading downslope towards the ocean.  When she finds the lava tube subway she will be down on the coastal plain in no time, and then into the ocean once again soon thereafter.

Looks like some weather is headed your way. It's hotter-n-sh!t, disgustingly humid and windy around here.

I gotta question. My soil is predominantly dark clay. Very rich while moist- used to be farmland. Since I moved into the property the drought has been in existence. The clay soil pulls away from the slab. I've been soaking and watering around the base of the house so it swells back, but can barely keep up. Now I'm considering pouring sand into the gaps. Is this a bad idea?
Title: Re: What's the Weather Like Where You Are?
Post by: punatic on August 12, 2011, 05:57:36 AM
Clay soils swell and shrink with changes in moisture contant.  This phenomenon is called heaving.  If you fill in the voids created while the clay is dry with sand, when the clay gets wet again and expands the expansion may cause uplift and cracking in your foundations and slab on grade concrete.  Maintaining a normal soil moisture content as you have been doing is the right way to go if you have the water to do it.

140" would qualify as a drought here on the windward side.  We've had close to 180" in the last year.  Most of our rain comes between midnight and sunrise.  However, just to keep things in perspective, the area called Puako on the other side of the island has had about 8" of rain in the last year.  Puako is in the South Kohala district and is in the rain shadows of Hualalai, Mauna Loa, and Mauna Kea.  No snow on the Maunas yet, but it is not uncommon for the snows to start up there in October.

It has been clear here at my house for the last three nights.  I've been watching the moon move across Maui's Fishhook (aka Scorpio).  The night sky here is breathtaking.  All of the lava is contained within Halema`uma`u  (http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/hvo/cams/HMcam/) and Pu`u `O`o (http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/hvo/cams/PCcam/), so no nighttime trips to the lava flows in a while.

Wasn't the guy only about 13 miles offshore? That's cutting it close.


We're actually getting a wee bit o'rain. Which is good because all the lakes and aquifers etc are getting very low. We've only had about 6" for the year when we should have had at least 30".

I heard on the radio news that there is a huge gob of debris from the Honshu tsunami floating across the Pacific Ocean towards us.  ETA Hawaii - spring 2013.  ETA US mainland - spring 2014.  It is currently located about halfway between Japan and Midway Island.  They know the debris field is from Japan because there is the wreckage of a fishing boat from Fukushima in the debris.

This has been quite a nice Autumn for the Midwest.  It's November and there are still colorful leaves on a lot of the trees.  Usually there's some stupid wind or rain storm that brings all the leaves down right around now or before...

We finally passed the 2 inch mark for the past 14 months-even here in the desert Southwest that's an incredible dry spell and not supposed to change this winter.

We are getting hammered here in Puna.  Several inches of rain since sunrise, lot of lightning & thunder, rain fade signal loss on DirecTV (the one big drawback to DirecTV).  Haven't seen the cats for hours, except Hebert.  He's lying right here on my lap, unfazed by all the rumbling.   :)

Now we've lost DSL and land lines.  Guess that means local grid power is out. Still able to connect via 3G.

Lightning is striking so close the grounding straps on my house wiring sizzle with each strike.  Now THAT'S danger close!  This is like being on the receiving end of an artillery barrage.  Lucking thing I learned how to duck and cover back in elementary school!

We had several mornings in the mid to upper 20's so my tomato plants froze.  I thought i had gotten all the ripe tomatoes the day before the freeze but after the plants died and the leaves fell off I saw about another dozen big fat red tomatoes.  I figured they'd be rotten but they were still delicious, firm and sweet even after several hard freezes.  Unfortunately I still have about 200 rotten green ones on the vines.

That's what I'm worried about, but usually those snaps don't arrive until January or even as late as February if at all. Hoping I'll get some tomatoes- enough to make sauce for the first part of the year. I'm gambling it'll be a mild winter again.

Must be nice.  Freezing fog happens when the water drops in the fog are below freezing but they don't form ice until they land on a surface.  it doesn't accumulate much though, so there's that ::)

Yep, this time of year is called Makahiki.  We get 180" of rain a year here at my house on the windward side of the island.  About 3/4 of that falls November through January.  I live in a tropical rainforest (on the slopes of an erupting volcano).

Funny thing is, on the other side of the island, in an are called Puako (in the South Kohala District),  they get less than 15" of rain a year.  That part of the island is in the rain shadows of Mauna Loa, Hualalai, and Mauna Kea.

I bet you can guess where the high-end resorts are located... ;)

But of course!  ;)

Here in Des Moines it's supposed to 52F today and 56F on New Years Eve. 

It just doesn't seem like the holidays this year with it being so warm and the kids are bummed out because we have no snow.  New Years Eve is normally somewhere south on 15F.  52 degrees is "shorts and t-shirt" weather.

It's warm enough that one of my big maples out back is drawing sap back up and dripping sugar all over my deck.  I kind of like that tree and would hate to see it die when the real winter weather gets here.

Oh well, it was sure nice taking the outside lights down in a fall jacket instead of 3 layers of insulated clothes.

So, it's cold here.  Not arctic cold, but freezing.  We've got a couple of inches of snow on the ground from yesterday, and it's currently snowing.  For some of you guys that's no big deal, but this area shuts down when it snows.  And apparently we're going to get anywhere from 6 - 18 inches in the next 48 hours.  We've already gone sledding, made a snowman, had snowball fights, etc.  To avoid cabin fever, I'm seriously considering brewing outside during the storm Wednesday, as long as it's not too windy it should be fine.

Snowmageddon started a few hours ago, nice steady falling snow.  But that's just the start.

"Late Tuesday night through Wednesday, a strong low-pressure system with copious amounts of moisture will approach the Northwest coast. This will set the stage for a major winter storm across the lower elevations and mountains of the Pacific Northwest. Travel could become dangerous or impossible."

Apparently some radio station is advising people to make sure they have enough food at home to last 5-7 days.  Seems a bit paranoid, eh?

Then again we have no plows really, and no one has snow tires, and the terrain is really hilly.  But it's also supposed to turn to rain on Thursday, so it probably won't last the weekend.

I think we're going to miss out on those winds Denny, but you can have them!

Sounds like you guys are really gonna get socked.  I've been filling kegs with water.  Being on a well, if the power goes out, so does the water.  Fortunately, I have a hot tub full of water I can use for flushing the toilet!   :D

We'll see if it materializes :)

I haven't filled any kegs, but as long as the pipes all remain intact a power outage won't affect that.  We lose the heat (not hot water), but that's only because the thermostat is electric.  Then again, the furnace might be electric-start.  I'm not worried, they buried most of the power lines over the last few years so trees falling on them is less of a problem.  Then again we've got the candles/flashlights out just in case.

I don't know, I'm mostly looking forward to some relaxing time at home. :)  No one expects you at work, my boss said she already has 6 inches at her place - she's just a few miles from me, and we've only gotten ~1.5 so far.

Purdue? I remember those 7:30s fondly.

Well, I remember them, anyway.

Actually, I don't remember some of them.
Yep, Purdue. Non-majors micro lab.
I'm sure at least a few of the students are sleeping. Heck, I'd rather still be sleeping then, too.

A lab at 7:30AM ?!  And students actually signed up for it?  Wow, must be a required class that is only available once a year.

I took linear algebra at 8:30AM and thought that was torture.  It was required and only given once a year.  The professor was a sadist (but also a good friend).

To be fair, the earliest times are relatively empty.  It's required for a number of majors, runs both semesters, and we have 15 sections of it this semester.  For some reason fall enrollment tends to be lighter; we only had 12 sections last semester.

It's England again except now, the flowers are starting to come up a month early for some, two months for others. I guess once they bloom, it will dump snow, freeze and then kill off spring.

We call that an "Indian Spring"!

But the closest we have gotten to winter is it being just cold enough to put on a jacket but not cold enough to snow. Zero winter effect. Even just a week of it looking like winter would be great but if it is any indication, it will go full winter sometime in april.

Oh well, I guess I will just have to watch the news and listen about Seattle getting their biggest dump in a long time.

This isn't panning out.  I think most of it is passing south of us, which is nice if you want to go to work.  Parts of Seattle have less than an inch.  About 100 miles to the south I've heard places are getting up to 20 inches of new snow.  We've got about 4 here (7 inches accumulated) - it's still snowing, but only lightly.

The real question for me now is, will it keep snowing long enough for school to be canceled tomorrow, or will it change to rain and all melt away.  Hard to say, but there's a chance school will be out tomorrow too.

One year when I was living in Knoxville they closed the schools on a *forecast* of 1/4-1/2 in. It ended up raining.
Title: Re: What's the Weather Like Where You Are?
Post by: tschmidlin on January 18, 2012, 07:46:42 PM
Yesterday they delayed the start for 2 hours because of the snow, and then after 2 hours of school we got calls to the home phone, cell phones, text messages to each cell, and emails, all saying that they were keeping the regular schedule but buses may start 30 minutes early.  And one email saying essentially "if you can, please come get your kids".  I don't know if it counts as a full day or not.

We've had them cancel school before when we had no snow, although if they have to close one school for snow they will close the entire district.  With the terrain here, you just never know what's going on over the next hill.  It can be snowing at our house, and raining less than a mile away (but 300 feet lower elevation).

The excitement of a possible snow day is awesome.  Good luck with that.

We actually had a "powder" day here.  If you call 6 inches a powder day. ::)
Can't even bend a knee into that.

True, it's not a uniform grade, the worst of it is about 10%.  But yeah, we call that a hill.  Specifically, Union Hill.  I didn't name it. ;D

We got the call already, no school tomorrow either.  Fun times with the kids, got some more sledding in today.  Hopefully it doesn't turn to rain too quickly tomorrow.

From what the weather report is, it may never turn to rain here, just more snow.  Then again it's almost worse if it rains, because it won't be nearly enough to melt all of the snow and then it will turn to ice overnight.  I'm beginning to wonder if school will be cancelled Friday too.

Good times though, lots of family time and plenty of supplies to hold us over ;)

One of my favorite things about living here is that I can stand in 80 degree F ocean water and look at a snow capped mountain just under 14,000 feet tall - then jump into my truck and drive up to that summit in just over an hour.  I can surf and snowboard in the same day. At 26 miles staight line, point to point that is an average 10% grade.

In Orlando I lived 46 miles from the ocean, and slab on grade elevation at my home was 73 feet above sea level.  That is a 0.03% grade up from the ocean.

10% mo bettah!

The rain has moved in here and we are thawing.  It's a good thing the snow has come out of the trees, because the wind is starting to pick up.  Not enough to worry about, but if they were still top heavy with snow it could be a bad thing.  We only lost one tree that I know of, and the power is back on :)

I'm not sure what the Southern Cross means to you bo (are you thinking it's some kind of kkk thing?), but it's a constellation.  It's on the Australian and New Zealand flags.  We can't see it from the continental US, but it sounds like Hawaii is far enough south.

Pretty big earthquake here just now.  Waiting for the HVO website to update the earthquake page to see what magnatude.  My guess is 5.8.


HVO website earthquake page (http://tux.wr.usgs.gov/) automatic update says 5.0.  It felt bigger than that to me. We'll see if the scientists update the magnitude after reading their instruments.

It was a big intial pulse with three reverberations.  Rocked my house pretty hard!  The biggest since the 6.7 in October 2006.  We'll be checking for structural damage island wide after this one.

It was centered beneath the current flow field of Kilauea.  It will be interesting to see if it affects the erruption.

After Hurricane Charley went through Central Florida on 8/13/04 we went without electricty for 7 days.  It was a VERY hot and humid time of the year to be without power.  Try sleeping in 85 degrees - 95% humidity with no AC or fan, and the neighbors' noisy generators as loud as lawnmowers going all night long. 

We had prepared by having cash on hand (no ATM power), gas tanks and gas cans full of gas (no gas pump power), several tanks of propane (propane sold out), prescriptions filled (no power at pharmacy), carboys and C-kegs full of drinking water, a swimming pool full of water for flushing toilets and bathing (tap water was not affected, but best to be prepared).

Plus food storage - but I can't talk about that, or risk being branded a terrorist...   ;)

Ewww, it's snowing.  It was doing this sleety thing earlier, so I guess this is an improvement, other than the temperature dropping below freezing now that everything's wet.

Edit: The forecast for the rest of today and tomorrow says "ice pellets."  Double ewww.

We've had it freeze on our garlic before and they've been fine, we've also had freezes where the new growth died, but they came back.  I'm just worried that they'll use all of their energy since they are growing so big now, then we get a hard freeze that kills the growth, and then they are weak through the summer.  It's probably nothing to worry about, but I still worry :)

I had to do my pruning with the temps in the 40s, it's not normally this warm this early.

I'll probably end up doing that for one or two of them, but for the hoppy beers I don't have time to tweak the recipes, and not doing a whirlpool would no doubt throw off my late additions.

I'd tough it out if it was just snow, but below about 15-20°F the propane won't flow properly. Maybe point a space heater at the propane tank... ::)

It is a good thing that we have had rain instead of snow.  There is still a little on the ground, but not much.  We are not lacking for moisture here.

oh and yesterday I felt, for sure, my first earthquake since moving to CA in 2008. I suspect there have been others but my brain edited them out as loss of equilibrium.

Snowing again, we're getting a dusting on top of the 1/2 inch accumulation.  I think normally this would shut down the city, but the roads were wet when the snow started so they stayed pretty clear.  A little icy at my place, but not too bad.

i know, a lot of snowy days! :)  But last year I think we got a couple of feet of snow total, and mostly this stuff isn't sticking much.  Not to the roads anyway.  If I don't post about snow you can assume it is 40s and raining ;D

I've gone over the averages, highs and lows since the 1870's in Texas and unseasonal conditions have happened many times before. In five years we might be getting crazy ass cold weather like we got in the 80's and 90's.

Still, it's a little disheartening to see 80 degree temps when getting off at midnight and it's mid-March. :'(

In the summer/fall of 2004, in Central Florida we had four hurricanes in six weeks.  After the second one blew through I went outside and yelled, "Enough already!  Stop it!" 

Two more blew through after that.  Shows you how important I am. 

Lesson learned - you just gotta take it. (or move to Hawaii).

Unfortunately Hawaii is not immune to the occasional hurricane either. It’s just a less likely to occur there.  Just a couple of months after the country watched Andrew roll through FL and LA, HI caught a cat four with winds of 125 kts/145 mph.

Hot with varying degrees of humidity.  We've been getting rain almost everyday.   Some of the storms have been quite destructive.  Trees down everywhere, a lot of folks still without power after four days and may not have it until the weekend.  Personally, I've been pretty lucky.

Its been a few years since we got hit by a big nasty wind storm (knock on wood).  Glad to hear you're oka y and didn't sustain much damage.  Storms like those tend to make or break neighborhoods.  I've made some great friendships with people who wondered into my yard with saws and wheelbarrows and vice-versa after a storm.

Stay cool and help where you can.  You'll be paid back many times over (of course you know that already, you're a homebrewer).   ;D

Looks like a 3rd consecutive 100+ degree day. Luckily, our A/C is fine (fixed it last summer when it hit triple digits), but our fridge decided to crap out on us, and I can't get the part to fix it until Monday. Now my wife truly understands my wisdom in owning three other fridges/freezers for beer. :)

I'll admit that I'm happy that one missed us.  We had rain all day yesterday with temps in the low 40's.  Looking at mid to high 30's today.  Anything above 10F is a good day in Iowa this time of year.

More snow on the way.  It has been fun skiing out the back door.

Well, since you guys are going to be locked up inside, here's what is in store for me tomorrow afternoon:
3110
  16
means the swell will be coming from the northwest (310 degrees), be 10 feet high, and there will be 16 seconds between waves.  10 foot swells in the ocean means 15-20 foot wave faces when breaking onshore.

Those two panels are just the tip of the weather data iceberg.  With the information available from NOAA-NWS and a few other web sites I can do a much better job as a meteorologist than 99% of the talking heads on TV.

But really that's not such a big deal.  They only get current conditions right less than half the time anyway.   :o

The data is available to anybody with a computer, for free, in real time.  Understanding what it all means just takes practice and experience.  The "experts" are making guesses just like the rest of us.  No one controls the weather.

Ended up with hip-high snow on most of my property, with drifts in the chest-to-shoulder height range. Thankfully, I was in the area got got more snow accumulation than wind so we never lost power. Forecast is for rain today and overnight lows above freezing, so that should hopefully clear out the bulk of what's sitting on my driveway without causing too much icing issues. Sure glad I don't have water problems in my basement, though...

Ended up with about 20" but I was shocked we didn't lose power with the wind blowing like it did.  We were under a blizzard warning for about 24 hours.  Spent a few hours on Saturday snowblowing my driveway and my neighbors. 

The area outside my basement where I brew was completely bare.  I guess the wind does have it positive points as well.  I didn't have any shoveling to do when I brewed a Pliny the elder clone on Sunday.   :D

Here in DFW I have been deprived of winter. It's been in the 50s and above since mid-January. It's been almost 80 several days. We had some snow -- even a white Christmas -- which was nice but it was unseasonably warm going into winter and coming back out.

The only redeeming part of the warm weather is that all my hop plants are already peeking out of the ground and the stores are starting to get in plants so I hope to have a long growing season this year but I hate the heat here and it will probably be in the 90s here by mid-April, which makes me very sad.

You can have the wind, all you want whenever.  Since we've had less than 15 inches of rain in the past 3.5 years when the wind blows so does the sand and the freaking tumbleweeds.  Check this out, it's not too far from us.

The biggest tumbleweed I ever saw was in Midland in the early 70's. It filled an entire alleyway as it rolled- it was too heavy to bounce. I ran from it...

However, I've never seen anything like in that video. Incredible.

On a side note, it's pretty foolish to drive into tumbleweeds. Hitting just one can end up with your vehicle burnt down to the axles. Especially trucks since the mass of tinder-dry bush can wedge up underneath the manifold, catylitic converter or the exhaust and burst into flame quite easily.

Obviously it was a company vehicle.  He probably only has half as much paint as he did when his day started.  Believe it or not, tumbleweeds are very hard to burn.  I have to soak them with lighter fluid to get them ignited, but once they ignite they burn fast and hot.

There's a price to pay to live anywhere.  Give up some things - gain others.

I grew up as an Air Force brat, and then as a NASA brat during Apollo.  My family lived many places around the world.  That allowed me to realize that living wherever you want is just a matter of making up your mind to be there, and then making it happen. 

Florida used to be my favorite place in the world, and I lived there for many years.  Then my wife and I came to Hawaii on our honeymoon.  As soon as I stepped off of the plane I knew this is where I am supposed to be.  So I made it happen.  This is hands-down my favorite place in the world.  I still love Florida, and go back to visit occasionally.  I used to enjoy traveling.  Not so much anymore.  I am really happy waking up in Hawaii, every day.

There's a price to pay to live anywhere.  Give up some things - gain others.

I grew up as an Air Force brat, and then as a NASA brat during Apollo.  My family lived many places around the world.  That allowed me to realize that living wherever you want is just a matter of making up your mind to be there, and then making it happen. 

Florida used to be my favorite place in the world, and I lived there for many years.  Then my wife and I came to Hawaii on our honeymoon.  As soon as I stepped off of the plane I knew this is where I am supposed to be.  So I made it happen.  This is hands-down my favorite place in the world.  I still love Florida, and go back to visit occasionally.  I used to enjoy traveling.  Not so much anymore.  I am really happy waking up in Hawaii, every day.

Somewhere on the other end of the spectrum...  it is 48F, overcast with a light wind here in South Central Iowa today.  It is supposed to get into the mid-30's tonight by the end of the football game.  Same for tomorrow and Sunday.  On Monday the bottom drops out and today's low will be above Monday's high.

Ya gotta love the Midwest a week ago it still 85+.  8^)

Marching band season ends this weekend so maybe I get back to brewing one of these days.

Enjoy Hawaii but we have leaves changing, finally, and the heat of summer is behind us for good this year.

went on a beer/BBQ run to KC today.
drove through a blizzard for about 50 miles starting in Emporia on the way back.  Since we seem to be focused on Hawaii, let's just call it an "okole squeezer"

High of 69 today.  We've had an amazing Indian summer this past month, aside from a bunch of tropical storm rain last week.  Considering how humid regular summer is, this has been preferable.

I'm with ya Carl!  The wife and I are discussing plans to make the move to Maui.  This time of year on a nice clear day as we go paddle boarding or kayaking off the shores of the Kamaole Beaches, you look out towards the Big Island and see those two snow capped peaks as clear as day.

However, I'm still in Denver and really love living here.  We got about an inch of snow this morning and the sun came out and warmed up nicely. 

My wife and I love skiing and snowboarding and are getting our 4-yr-old daughter skiing this year.  After getting all her gear (which we'll have to buy new or off craigslist every year as she continue to grow) and getting ski passes, we really wished we were in Hawaii.  Besides getting her a surf board, it's free to go surfing, snorkeling, etc...! 8)

Yeah, it's kinda hard to explain it all.  Hawaii is a State, but it's more like another country than any other state.  An amazing blend of ethnicities come together to make Hawaiian Style.  Living here is way different than vacationing here.  Oahu is much different from the rest of the state.

The weather app is so true.  It is a waste of icon space on the homescreen.  I have mine set to alert for high surf advisories.

When I show my drivers license on the mainland they call other people over to look.  It always gets a comment.

it was 49 and wicked windy here. after two days of rain the sky is a lovely washed cerulean with nary a cloud in sight. It'll be 60 by lunch time.

Hopefully we've got enough organic matter worked into our garden that it will hold on to some of that rain because with the wind most of it has re-evaporated already.

We got some relief last week but days have been hot, humid and breezy. Currently, evenings outside are phenomenally comfortable. Great for sitting, tunes and drinking cervesa. Will take advantage of this awesomeness as long as it lasts. Most likely another few weeks.

Then that's it until October.

We've had a real spring up my way for the first time in ages. Usually we go from a cold, wet late winter right into humid and gross around here, but it's been 65-80 for the highs and 50ish for the lows for almost a straight month now. I'm regretting not getting an early jump on the garden, but I've gotten screwed by late frost the past couple of years.

Right now it's 70 and climbing with barely a cloud in the sky. Guess I should get off the computer and go outside lol :)

Strangely cool here in South Central Iowa.  Temps in the upper 70's and really low humidity.  Normal is high 80's to low 90's and humidity that makes weather you can wear.  It's killing the kids work schedule at the pool.  Life guards enjoy their work more when there are patrons in the pool.   :-\

It's hard to complain about very nice weather but it is really messing with the vegetable crops.

 It's been 75 and sunny for 2 weeks, but party's over. Temps are falling into the upper 30s tonight, windy, rainy. The crappy end of the fall spectrum.

Yes, very sad tale to tell about children that can't go to school with 3" of snow. I was out this morning at 9am, and that is 2 hours after buses would have had to drive. Never even put my truck into FWD. Highway, city streets, back roads with treacherous hills and switchbacks. All clear enough for speed limit. The school and the kids will complain come spring break when they lose part of spring break to make up snow days...

There are signs that spring may be on its way, though. I'm probably going to have to get the pump going, too, when all this snow melts.

I don't know about you, Euge, but going down to the basement to "pump out" is always a good excuse for a cold beer.  8)

Nice! You are a true optimist with faith enough in Mother Nature to plan for spring even while witnessing the bleak reality of a winter that refuses to yield.

I'm hoping to tend bees someday when I retire and have a bigger lot of land.

Opposite problem here, getting up to the mid-80's today. Spring has sprung here and with the bees swarming around the trees and hedges outside, I may wait for a "cooler" weekend next week. It's already 10 AM, so my brewing window is slowly closing!

Wet wet wet... I am just west of Bastrop, Texas, far enough from the Colorado River to avoid anything serious. We got a little water in the house up through the foundation from the water shed uphill. Ducked a tornado but no damage. Very fortunate compared to my neighbors east of town (dam break took out several homes just rebuilt from the fires in 2011) and those south (San Marcos and Wimberly) or even Houston.

We have another big storm coming this week, but it looks like maybe a dry stretch for at least a week after that. We need to dry out some, but filling up the reservoirs, aquifers and lakes is welcome after a 14 year drought. Just not at the cost of the lives lost to the floods.

Yes, but man we need that rain its been a dry spring.I busted ass yesterday getting in the tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant and weeding and mulching. Also planted buckwheat where my barley will go for fall. I did enjoy the great day yesterday. I was outside from 7 am to 7 pm mostly working but also a couple beer breaks and grilled supper with salad from the garden. I'm hoping for a ton of rain the next few days.It would greatly increase the chance of a honey flow.

Man, I'm spoiled that it's under a mile to both the teeball and soccer fields. Things will probably change this fall for flag football. But, the weather has been all over the place this year. It's either been cold and windy, or hot and stale with the sun beating down on you. I would kill for a run of days with low-70's and a light breeze.

I'm loving the rain today up here. It should help the berries fill out a bit. I might actually plant my beans and peanuts tomorrow not that the soil has some moisture.

I remember those easy travel days, before travel soccer we used to be able to simply walk to the fields she played on, same when my boys played baseball. This whole travel thing can really kill you in the advanced leagues, come fall we'll have out of state travel for some tournaments, not looking forward to that at all!

I too would kill for a string of decent weather, this spring here has just royally sucked all the way around!

Finally looking like it will warm up here in Des Moines this week. The 3 lifeguards in my house would like to make some money so it will be welcomed.

I really don't miss the sports leagues.  We are down to marching band in my house.  6-8 weeks in the Fall and we're done for the rest of the year.  My last 2 are in high school as of this Fall.  The older 2 start getting done with college next year and the year after (hopefully).  It's very weird to see the light at the end of the tunnel after so many years.

I'm looking forward to a few days of sunny to mostly sunny with slight chances of rain.  It's been very cold and damp here this Spring.

We almost touched 80 here in Virginia Beach, VA on Christmas.  It got down to the low 30s for 2 days and had a light dusting of snow on Tuesday the 5th of Jan.  Now we are back at a respectable 47.

Suddenly wintery, like flipping a switch. No measurable snow in November or December (rare here), and it was 50F and rainy here yesterday. Overnight blew in a cold front and it's 22F with 3" of snow. Gonna be a cold mother this week.

We had a cold stretch last week and there were a few inches of ice on the ground. Right now 55 and raining, upper twenties and low thirties the rest of the week which is warm for mid January.

You folks in more temperate areas would love Iowa this week.

Monday: high of 5
Tuesday: high of 12
Wednesday: High of 36
Thursday: high of 46
Friday:  high of 26
Saturday: high of 10
Sunday: high of 1

Nothing like a consistent temp so you can get used to it.   ;D

The worst part of it is that on Sunday I have to help move the high school band's equipment to a hotel conference center for their big concert/fund raiser and back.  Always seems like the coldest day of the year when we do this.  If tradition holds there will be a 20MPH wind too.  I just keep telling myself "3 more years, only 3 more years".

Oh well, I'm brewing on Monday and it's supposed to get up to 12.  It'll be a heat wave!  ;D

I drove down to Boston to pick a friend up at the airport and we drove back in that 'storm' there were certainly moments that were a touch dicey but yeah, no what I would call a normal New England winter so far.

My guest grew up in Californian and had never really been in a snow storm before so for her it was impressive.

This has been the freakiest winter season yet. I never stopped- just slowed cutting the grass. Once February rolled around we started having 80* days and I've been running the AC because of the humidity. Today is forecast for 85*...

That's late April-May weather if not outright June weather for Bexar county. I hope we get a few more cool fronts!

Yesterday it was 52F when I left for work in the AM. I saw that the high was going to be 50, so I wore a light rain jacket. Little did I know that the high was when I left for work and that temperatures would plummet during the day. By the time I got out of work I just about froze. I'm about done with this winter.

Yup. I live south of Fulton and North of Syracuse and work in Oswego.

We get heavy, narrow bands of snowpocolypse style, white out lake effect snow. It's weird though because the bands are so narrow that over the course of my 45 min ride home I can drive through, and back out of, extremely heavy snow bands.

I've only had two occasions where I've needed to be plowed, and they were 3 days apart. We've had about an 80 degree temperature spread between the highest and lowest temps here this winter (and that number will be close to 90 in a few hours). Crazy stuff

The only thing I'm worried about is how it will affect the plants. I know that we've had a lot less chill hours than usual this winter, but I'm not sure if it's been enough to affect fruit tree yields. I am also concerned about an early bud break followed by some hard frosts or a long cold snap. Guess we'll just have to keep our eyes on it...

Good point Eric, the late winter last year drastically reduced the chance of a hard frost during budding or even blossoming. That, along with a good stretch of nice weather for pollinators during blooming resulted in huge yields around here.

Snow today.  Not a lot (1-3 inches possible) but when it was 70 on Friday and the couple inches we got yesterday morning melted by the end of the day, it's time to kill this winter.  Even though it was a mild winter, it needs to end now!

The ice in the lakes went out about 3 weeks earlier than usual.
There was a fishing activity right after ice out but that dropped off.
I was out the middle of last week and the water temp at the surface is still only 38 degrees.
Not much action.
It's been a little cold since the ice went out and the water hasn't warmed up much.
I'll give it another try in a week or so.
I don't eat the fish I catch, just like to catch them!

These were slamming into my roof with the most sickening thuds late last evening. This storm caused a lot of damage to cars and other property. Thankfully the waves of hail lasted only seconds each in my area.

Roof appears OK but the top of my mailbox is crushed in from a single hail-strike. ::)

Sorry to hear about the hail.  Keep an eye on the roof.  You see a hail damaged roof very easily when you tear it off by the round spots on the bottom of the shingles.  Each big hail stone can weaken or puncture a shingle.  It won't be that obvious from the top but can allow water to seep thru if bad enough.

I'm happy to have gotten by with only 2 hard freezes this week.  It looks like we should finally be warming up around here.  Low of 22F on Sunday night, a low of 27F on Monday but was in the 40's last night.  Heading towards the 60s or 70s by the weekend for highs.

Unfortunately, I know what you mean and agree. Had to replace our roof 2 years ago after a big hailstorm. And last year, not to be out done, the house got struck by lightning. Luckily no fire, but lots of damage to electronics. I'm hoping to break the streak this year. Gotta love the Midwest.

I dreamt about having big dents in my roof last night... :(

Sigh. Means a trip into the attic while it's raining to check for leaks. Hate going up there. We're supposed to get some more rain today and I'll go up if it lasts for any significant time.

Imagine the sound of someone pitching a fast-ball into the side of your house. I admit to screaming- not out of fear but rage at the thought of the damage to the roof!

Weatherman said hail of this size travels at 80+mph and can kill or cause serious injury. I would not have liked being struck by one of these large hailstones!

Everything is a month early this year.  February felt like March.  March like April, etc.  June has been averaging 85F+ and we have gotten almost no rain.  Can't wait for July to be the oven of August and probably no rain then either.

The farmers are starting to get worried.  without rain, there won't be much of a crop, any crop.  Glad I do IT work and don't have to live with the stress of farming.

The temp here dropped from 68F to 8F in less than 48 hours late last week, kind of tough to get acclimated to winter when it does that. We have seen greater temperature fluctuations in less time in the past, and a few years ago we had 30F below during the 2nd week of November, so I guess I shouldn't snivel.

Besides, without a freezer to ferment in, I depend on a cold house for the Scottish Ale I plan to brew in a couple of days and--in December/January--a Common and a couple of lagers.

The temp finally dropped this past weekend here in south-central Iowa.  Still warm for this time of year but highs in the high 40's to low 50's instead of the high 70's.  Today is rainy and windy.

I'm hoping for one more nice day before it really starts to drop.  I have tickets to the last home game for Iowa State.  My daughter is in the marching band.  It would be great to get in the 50's with little to no  wind.  The predicted temp is about right, at the moment, but still crossing my fingers.  :)

Last couple days here in Portland have been like that too.  October and November were just gray and rainy, but the last couple of days it's cleared out, not a cloud in the sky, but that means it's dropping below freezing overnight (day highs in the upper 40s/low 50s), but this east wind out of the gorge is just ripping! 10-15MPH sustained with gusts higher, for the last three days straight.  It's crazy.

Isn't that like being in Alabama and commenting on the neighbors being brother and sister? You knew what you were getting into. ;D

Are you even prepared for May when CBC is "in town"?

First snow overnight, raining this morning.  Looks like it should  be a lovely weekend for staying inside and brewing!

It’s supposed to freeze Sat night. Of course, rainy and cool today as the opening act. Ditto on hibernation this weekend.

We're (Denver) in the 30s during the day and the 20s at night. We've had a few minutes of a little snow here and there but otherwise really dry.

84F right now with 63% humidity in Tampa, but it is supposed to cool off this weekend.

It was snowing in Des Moines about an hour ago.  Then it was sunny.  Now it's overcast.

10 minutes from now it will be completely different.  ;D

You've gotta love the Midwest.

I would definitely take that right now. We have about 18" on the ground.

Things are mostly on fire.

Watch this terrifying video I saw on CNN.

Thanks.  We're fine here.  It's the Camp Fire up in Paradise, CA where things are really bad.

It's actually getting pretty close to the Sierra Nevada Brewery in Chico.  They've closed down according to their Twitter feed.
