if there were no need for 'engineers from the quantum plenum' then we should not have any unanswered scientific questions.

Should we talk about the weather?

Bummer!!  Today, London had a higher temperature than Tampa Florida has ever had since temps have been recorded.

My town in Central Florida had a smaller temp reading than New York City.

Not bragging here. It was still plenty hot in my back yard, about 90F at its high point.

I wonder whether those damned Texas right wing climate change deniers will blame their triple digit temps and life threatening droughts on Biden. 


38 degrees Celsius here, but luckily there is a cool breeze.

July 2022 was the driest month on record in the UK so far. For the first time some weather stations in the South East of England recorded on rain at all!

We also had the first ever recorded temperatures of 40C or 104F.

There were wildfires and while nobody was hurt 40+ houses and buildings were burned down in semi-rural areas East of London.

Mostly clear/partly cloudy and sunny here. It's nice. It's cool at night this time of year, but not cold. Mid-twenties during the day.

I think this year has been kind-of dry, but looking at the water supply for them hydroelectric whatnots, it's pretty much in the middle of what's average. (Not that the damnable electricity is likely to get any cheaper in my area, what with the Germans having shut down most of their nuclear stations and getting little Russian gas, and us having one or two of them ACER cables...)

If there is a moral lesson in this, it must be "blame Putin. And when done blaming him, blame the Germans."

Billy, were you influenced by the disastrous weather pattern that hurt eastern Kentucky so badly?

billy rubin

not at all.

or at least, not so seriously.

here its been rainy and cool. electric blanket weather, and mud in th elane to the gravel road.

this part of north america is supposedly destined for mild rainly summers, and and fairly brief cold winters.

we've just had gentle rains and a few spectacular thunderstorms, while kentucky has cratered under the neglect that its politicians have forced upon it for some 30 years.

sorry, i see everything as political these days.
