PostSubject: Hows the Weather?   Sun Aug 30, 2015 1:51 am

(The spam threads could use some company)

How is the weather?

Here its been all over the place. We have massive instances of Shaman Purging (forest fires) all over the state to the point that:

A) disaster relief/emergency and all that good stuff has been sent in, Presidential well wishings and all that. Firefighters from all over being sent in (even as far as Australia).

B) a "bad air quality" warning/advisory statement has been issued "indefinately" state wide, as we can almost cure meat by hanging it outside in the smoke drifting through, and the closest fire is over 100 miles away! The smoke is so thick from time to time that the sun "sets" almost an hour early some days and ash fallout comes own like snow from time to time.

Today, we started out with the first rain in months, so hard in sheets the roof roared, but it was over and sun shining in an hour. After another hour you couldnt tell anything happened.

Then the wind picked up. Had to take down the trampoline (under 5 year old protest) to keep it from flying away. I could hear someone's metal roof peel off up the street this morning. The winds finally died down "as predicted" at 6pm.

We actually saw blue sky, and currently have a bright full moon (white tonight, not blood red like the last week)... and yet I still smell strong campfires hanging in the air.

I habe been taking pictures of all this the last week or so if anyone wants to see them, otherwise...

...how's your weather?

Well the North coast got the rain today as well as a few other places. Nothing here in the valley. Most of the fires are pretty well under control. Got in the mid 80's today. Now if the entire west coast can get some decent rain and snow fall this fall and winter.

Nothing spectacular, thanks the High Ones!

We had a bright full moon last night. Is's warm and sunny and friendly bue, supposed to be hot today - the last day of Summer.

It's too dry in my reagion for weeks - for month. By far not as dramatically as in other regions of the world but nature and farmers feel the unusual draught.
Rain seems to flee my region this year. Good part is - we don't get severe thunderstorms with heavy rain, hail and storm either.

Its strange the way nature rolls with things sometimes. On the one hand, its so dry that if we forget to water one of the trees at the right time, the leaves die and fall off (but a good soaking right away and it grows new ones). We have trees growing in the river (that still has water thanks to the dams upstream), and even they are losing leaves and turning colors in summer.

But out in the high desert, it seems as though theres more life than ever. I have seen more different kinds of bugs this yewr than any other, there are plants stoicly growing vibrant in the dry soil without any apparent source of water. The sage brush is showing its too dry, losing some color, but it isnt dying (though even if it had normal water and someone looked at it they might think the fibrous stems were dead wood, its such a weird plant).

But the bugs are weird. Massive flies the size of the last joint of your little finger, furry flies that look like mosquitos the size of houseflies, black wasps with abdomins that look stretched out thin with a bulb at the far end (overall twice as long as a normal wasp)... the grasshoppers are normal critters, but theres a lot of them this year, and the dragonflies were out in large quanitites early this year. Mosquitoes are almost absent, but what few there are seem to be showing up with West Nile virus.

Birds, non domesticated animals and plants all seem to be thriving, but us pitiful humans are feeling the heat!

Don't know about new weird bugs around here, but we have to worry about West Nile disease.

We have cold nights. +8°C at
night. Somewhere already fallen
snow. A hot day, when the sun
shines.

It was cool today, probably in the 70s. Cool enough I sat in the car to warm up for a bit. Now its getting warm and humid with a small stormhead rolling through. And a stormhead in the back seat throwing a fit (almost 6 year old fit.) The joys of fatherhood.

Nice a cool this morning.

Ah Hammer. I remember well the days of 6 yr. old fits. Gotta love the little darlings, then they suddenly become teenagers. Have I got a surprise for you.

It is very cold out. We are having one of those lovely north winds that bring really cold air out of the north. Brrrrrr.

It was warm late at afternoon yesterday, and then it froze up terribly, and now it's frozen again and it's minus outside. But I Guess that it will melt by the time I leave work

Autumny, with rain, wind and storms. Not that cold yet. When I was looking outside this afternoon, I spotted golden trees without leaves in bright sunlight, and behind it a heavy dark blueish-grey thundercloud. Striking contrast. Small rainbow as well.

Let me express my feelings about the weather in a haiku:

Brown leaves blown away
Fields and woods shine white today
With the gods' dandruff.


WTF, a inch of snow in November?! We usually get hadly any of the white stuff before January over here!

Bright, sunny, and warm. More rain this week and low snow. By low snow, I mean starting at the 4,000 ft. and dropping to about 2500 ft. in the mountains.

It was really, really beautiful earlier today, but also kinda cold.
Now it seems to have gotten a bit more cloudy.

Still cold. Harrumph.
We're going to Florida for about 10 days next months and I'm going to enjoy every minute of it.
Less clothing - happier Zadzi.
I think I might be a really mister at heart because I'm too cheap to spend money on winter clothes so instead I just shiver like an idiot. Maybe this season I'll finally break down and get those cashmere panties.

It's raining somewhat heavily here. We're apparently going to get hit by a storm?
