Title: Yer Weather
Post by: Heinrich on January 22, 2019, 11:57:38 AM
Unless you are in the far SW, it appears that most of the US is suffering from chilly, cold, biting ass freezing along with the complementary rain, ice, and snow. Here in southeast central Colorado, aka El Paso County, we have a blizzard from Monument Peak(where I work) to the centre of Colorado Springs. Temp is holding at a crisp 20 degrees Fahrenheit. Seems the whole town is shut down. Even my sister in Tampa St. Pete is getting all refrigerator: 47 degrees overnight. How are things where you are?

Came in early (got in at 0500) with the intention to leave early. Instead the dang base shut down and I'm stuck here until my relief arrives -- which he can't, since the base is shut down. So who knows, I might be leaving at 1500, or might be leaving sometime tomorrow morning.

A balmy 68 in Houston but it has been relatively very cold the last few days. My windshield was frozen yesterday morning! Very unusual for here. Stay warm my Yankee friends.

Even here in the far Southwest our temperatures are approaching freezing at night. But they rise with the sun. It’s in the low 40’s now, supposed to get into the 50’s later in the day.

It was 65 degrees in Ft. Lauderdale on Saturday, and my brother couldn't get a Golf game, because all his buddies told him it was "Way too cold, for Golf". My brother was questioning their manhood in a non-politically correct way.

A friend of mine from Cincinnati has a condo in Ft. Myers, he told me when it gets cold down there, people really bundle up; he said: "They sell coats down here, that are way thicker than the ones that are sold in Cincinnati".

Brrr... Or does it become impossible to shiver when it gets too cold?

My sister in PA told me (while it was still above zero for her) that she minded the cold more in So. Cal. (inland) because we don't have such good heaters. She said she can take brief cold as long as warmth is coming soon.  (We didn't have very good heating at my Mom's house).

I hate winter.

It humbles you. I like it. But what is tough, especially growing up in the Midwest, is the teasing one gets in March and April. One can feel the warmer air moving in, and there will be some days that appear to be summery, but the next few weeks will overall be dreary and chilly. But that is OK. This is old Europe Christendom weather, and what makes a Lenten Penance all the more effective. Now I live in Colorado, where, as many like to say, if yo don't like the weather, wait. Seriously. More dramatic than anywhere. For example, one day we can have Phoenix type temps and the next, Minneapolis. No foolin.

In California we worry about weather disasters that COULD happen and that may be "due". This story has been appearing just the last few days:

Quote from: Rare L.A. mega-storm could overwhelm dam and flood dozens of cities, experts say
Scientists call it California’s “other big one,” and they say it could cause three times as much damage as a major earthquake ripping along the San Andreas Fault.

Although it might sound absurd to those who still recall five years of withering drought and mandatory water restrictions, researchers and engineers warn that California may be due for rain of biblical proportions — or what experts call an ARkStorm.

This rare mega-storm — which some say is rendered all the more inevitable due to climate change — would last for weeks and send more than 1.5 million people fleeing as floodwaters inundated cities and formed lakes in the Central Valley and Mojave Desert, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Officials estimate the structural and economic damage from an ARkStorm (for Atmospheric River 1,000) would amount to more than $725 billion statewide.

https://www.latimes.com/local/california/la-me-ln-mega-storm-dam-failure-20190218-story.html
https://www.10news.com/news/local-news/devastating-ark-storm-envisioned-for-california-by-u-s-geological-survey

Wouldn't it be something if the "big one" earthquake and this mega-storm happened at the same time (of course I imagine the former by itself could also cause the dam to break)?

Fortunately San Diego isn't in the area in danger of flooding from the maga*-storm, but we wouldn't escape the "big one" earthquake.

(* I meant MEGA-storm - a MAGA-storm is much preferable  ;))

Weather NOW? Well it's raining more than usual and even hailing a bit -  hard enough to scare my cat into the back of the closet. But I wouldn't have posted here if that were all I had to share!

I attended Ole Miss for the 1973-74 school year; very very rainy in the Spring Time. I remember going to the gym on a November afternoon and playing in some pick up Basketball games; when I went to the gym it was around the mid-seventies and really nice; when I emerged from the gym around 6:30 a cold weather system had passed through, and it was freezing! I had to walk back to my dorm in the freezing cold; I didn't think I was going to make it back.

I majored in "Business Administration"; my first semester I did quite well; but I don't know what happened to me my second semester, I just went into a funk- dropped an easy class that I should have not dropped and kept a hard class that I should have dropped. Never went to the Botany Lab in the afternoon; I just didn't do very well. I decided to head back to Miami and stay there for there for the remainder of my three years of college.
Ole Miss was a typical S.Eastern University; beautiful red brick buildings; rolling hills; ante-Bellum style administration Bld. Rabid football fans; rooting for their beloved "Rebels". "Dixie" was still the official fight song; small Rebel flags were distributed before the game, and when the team would come out, the band would strike up the rousin music, the whole stadium would be a sea of Rebel flags, and alive with the sound of Rebel yells. It was very exiting. "Coronel Reb" that year was Mr. Coolidge Ball, the black star of the Basketball team. He participated in the Homecoming parade in full Confederate Officer's dress uniform. Dixie was banned a few years latter and so was their "Coronel Reb" mascot. So I witnessed almost the end of the era.

I lived in Miami for 25 years; I remember going on vacation to Miami when I lived in El Salvador; we would arrive in early November or late October; the weather would be almost perfect; temperatures in the low 80's low humidity, nice Easterly breeze, very little rain. Then when we moved there in July 3, 1967; the airport terminal doors opened and a blanket of heat and humidity hit me in the face; what in the world! I had never experienced a S. Fla. Summer before, and I was miserable. But I eventually got used to the weather and came to love it.

It will be interesting to gauge the births along the Front Range of the Rockies in January: a five day stint with rain/snow/sleet at 6200 feet. In the higher elevations measurable snow. Highs only in 40s or low 50s. Good weight lifting weather, I guess. Keeping the snow shoes in view in case I decide to get real high(er) elevation.

In regards to post #20 above, we got 12 inches overnight. On May 21. But wait! There's more! DO not put away the skis just yet, wax 'em if you got 'em!

Señor Tutti Frutti gives us the full report:

Going to be 96ish with humidity here in Kentucky today. I am thinking a midnight run to Woodland Park, Colorado may be in the offing. Low to mid 70's this weekend with about 20% humidity. Wait, work. Never mind.

It was a steady rain here for almost a day: everything is saturated to the point of literally sinking into the ground. My dogs are filthy, with muddy paw prints decorating the floors. Today was the first day since I've moved that I really longed to be in the West again. While the air temperature there is pretty cold, the sun, snow, and sand make the mood much better than mud and moderately mauve, moonless skies.

Well I suppose this is a necropost; but how can weather be dead?

Fires in California continue: https://www.fire.ca.gov/incidents; fortunately not in So. Cal. yet....

But we are supposed to have a record heat wave here for Labor Day: https://www.kpbs.org/news/2020/sep/02/warm-begins-san-diego-county-ahead-labor-day-weeke/.  My condo currently doesn't have A/C and it is supposed to be in the 100s (as high as 105 and even 108) over the weekend.  It cooled down a lot earlier in the week from the week before, but that was a temporary respite.

I have 2 family birthdays (not mine) this weekend plus Labor Day plus Church, and none of the locations have A/C.  But maybe we'll go to the beach for one of the b/days. Church is outside and it is usually breezy and pleasant.  So we'll survive, although it will be warm.

Yeah we have been getting nice early fall weather for the past week here in southern Ontario as well.  It's forecast to be the same for the next week.

Rocky Mountain West to get snow midweek. I really, really want to move back. There is going to be a 51 degree temperature swing within 24 hours from Tuesday to Wednesday in Colorado Springs. Back in the mid 90's I was watching an early season Air Force Academy football game, probably mid to late September, and was mesmerized by the relentless snow that Thursday evening. I am going to move back. Along the way, I am going to pick up Michael Wilson. Together with him, Gardener and I will reclaim the region for the King of Spain.

I was reading the Farmer's Almanac is predicting lots of snow for this coming winter.  They have been wrong before though.

Fire in San Diego County, 5000 acres, 1% contained, 10 homes destroyed.  Close enough to be smoky. https://www.kpbs.org/news/2020/sep/06/5350-acre-fire-japatul-valley-area/

I know what you mean. It is going to be a snuggle contest tonight among the two legged twosome of the Heinrichs and assorted four legged critters.
