Unfrozen Caveman Planner
Note to the Rain Gods - three minutes of rain once every six days ain't getting it done.
I would be happy to send you all the water you want. I've got too much of it right now.
Woo-hoo! Last week we had a 90F day, with high humidity. It was followed by some mid-80F days, with continued high humidity.
Then the front rolled through.
Winds today out of the NW, very strong. Temps in the upper 60F range. Weekend temps look to be below-normal, with some overnights near 35F.
I love this weather !!!
BTW.....If any of you have ever been on a Great Lake when gale-force winds are creating 7-to-10 foot waves, you know what a ride you can have.
Lake Erie's shallowness mixed with gale force winds creates monster waves, with not a lot of space beteen each wave, especially if the winds are from the north, northwest, or northeast. Really can be scary for smaller boats (18' to 26').
Gale force winds from the south and southwest create waves with a lot more spacing. Smaller boats don't have as much trouble, because it is if they are on a hilly road.
Yeah, this time of year is great. It was in the mid-40s when I woke up this morning.
So today, I put away the cargo shorts and busted out the jeans and sweatshirt for the first time of the season.
Won't be long before frost...although I hope we can still get a few 70s in before that.
Is it just me, or does it seem like it's harder for meterologists to predict weather in the spring and the fall? I've noticed that what they say in the 10-day forecasts is often completely different from what they say in today's forecast. Like, I think today was supposed to be in the low 80s. I wake up this morning and it's in the low 60s and is only supposed to reach 71, if that.
It makes it harder to plan and dress for the weather, particularly in the northern tier of the country. I guess it's beause it's such a transitional season. One day it could be 80, the next day it could be 50.
The peaks now have snow on them! I was greeted with a fantastic view on the drive in this morning.
This is the time of year when I start the webcam checks of your local resorts. I become sickeningly jealous and stop doing so by mid-November.Our peaks have up to 3 feet of snow and I have managed three ski days so far, It just dumped 20+ inches in the mountains, with a bigger storm for this weekend. Life is good.
We're okay here but the weather has been nasty. The rain gauges are not working at the airport or the air base. Unofficial reports have rainfall totals between 6 and 7 inches over the past 48 hours and it's still raining heavily. Yesterday, we had at least two funnel clouds just off shore. This morning I woke up to a nearly full pool. If this keeps up, it'll overflow (won't be the first time).everyone in Florida in here okay?
Looks like the Tornado WARNINGS are lining up along the Ohio River already. Hope you and Gedunker stay safe.
The drought is terrible here. I honestly believe that we will run out of water before Christmas. I don't know what will happen then.
What really annoys me are the people with their heads up their arse that insist upon continuing to waste water. Oh yeah, and those morons that are screaming about the Lake Lanier and the Chattahoochee. It is not just about mussels. People in Florida and Alabama have a right to the Chattahoochee's water too!
