Wedneday-70F daytime, starting at 8 PM wind gusts up to 65 mph
Today-58F, breezy(25-30 mph)
I'd really just rather be brewing in sunny Carlsbad New Mexico

Gotta turn the A/C on.  Are we sure this is February?

Winter storm alert for the summits of Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, and Haleakala.

The view from UKIRT on Mauna Kea summit:





Down here at sea level on the windward side it is dumping rain (7" in the last 24 hours) and 70F.

Puna!  Is that a huge glaring icicle in that photo?  Props for staging. 8)

Upper level trough stalled here yesterday,
dropping an unexpected 5 inches.

Low teens are a shocker after spring like temps. :o

Last chance to use ambient for that lager slurry.

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.

Partly sunny,  18  inches of snow on the ground & 25 degrees Fahrenheit.  It would be a nice day to brew if I hadn't loaned my mash tun to someone.
There are 10 kinds of home brewers.  Those that understand binary, and those that don't.

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.

That webcam has been mounted in the same spot for years.

Hmmm, I was thinking the end of a big downspout! :-\

Has to be a nice trick of the eye thing then. 
A really small icicle, but really close to the camera?
