Title: Should we talk about the weather?
Post by: Eric V Arachnid on December 28, 2014, 12:28:25 PM
I don't think there should be a separate weather thread.
Extreme events are shared in What's On Your Mind

We  shouldn't have a separate weather thread,
it'll be filled with inane I saw cloud today stuff.

It's been wet, cool and wet the last couple of days.
I'm wearing layers in December.

It is going to be warm tomorrow.

Hello I'm sorry, I lost myself.

It's hell outside. It's going to be 37?C today they say. There isn't that much shade in this concrete city for refuge. I'd rather wear layers in December than fight over telephone post shade with about 20 other people.  >:(

:D I didn't see any clouds, I wish there were a few, though. 

Soon the northern hemisphereans will come along and talk about how wonderfully cold it is where they are.

Cold and rainy here in Central Texas.  I'm off work for a week.  I'll be sawing logs (literally) for the fireplace today.  It will be in the 20's F tonight.  I have some large oak trees on my property, and as limbs die I use them for firewood.

It's currently in the upper 40's.  It was supposed to rain but it's just cloudy.  I was going to run my dog but that's kinda warm coupled with the humidity.  Maybe I'll go for a short one.  There's no hunting Sunday's so I hate to miss the opportunity. 

It'll be in the teens again in a couple days.  It may or may not snow/rain/sleet/all of the above at the same time at any point, regardless of the temp.  Totally normal for New England this time of year.

For winter weather in the US, you need to draw a large "U" in the middle of it, representing the jet stream as it dips down this time of year.  The corners and bottom of the US (San Diego, CA, Rio Grande Valley, TX, and Miami, FL) are usually warmer because of their latitude and their proximity to water.  The upper coasts are colder, but the oceans have a moderating effect.  The coldest area is in the middle - the great plains.  Minnesota and North Dakota get bitterly cold, and the winds make it worse.

Surely you have some pictures of the snow-phallic?


This reminds me of two things. The first took place back when I was in middle school (A Catholic school). Once during our lunchtime/recess a group of us made a snowman out on the playground. First someone created a nice wide butt crack to the rear end, and then we added some well endowed breasts to our snow-person, and were just in the process of attaching a penis when one of the lunch ladies (Volunteer Mom) caught sight of our big booby pre-operative, trans-gendered snow person, and went crazy with rage (We were probably around 12 years old)

She was simply flipping out that we did such a horrible thing, but not surprisingly since we were nasty disgusting perverts ...and she hauled us all inside to the principals office, but not before she attacked the snow person and knocked it over, so basically destroying the evidence. Which was fortunate for us because we were able to more or less deny what she was reporting to the principal (Sister Cecelia) about what we had actually done.

We still got in major trouble, but no suspensions, lost our access to the playground during lunch for a couple weeks, plus detention after school for a few days; also had to write a note to our parents telling them what we did. (So we each blamed the other kids for the nasty parts)


This is the second thing PC's post reminded me of, I've hidden the picture as a NSFW.

It's pretty nice. Almost hit freezing overnight. Everyone flipped out. It's a bit silly. As far as I'm concerned, freezes should be pretty normal up to a certain point in April. But where I live, it could hardly hit freezing overnight during the winter. *rolls eyes*

Lol. My parents were like "We've got to cover the plants! We've got to turn the heater on because the pipes might burst!" and I'm just sitting there like "Um... It's not even supposed to hit the freezing mark, and even if it did, it would only be for a very short amount of time, right before the sun comes up and warms it all up." I don't think the pipes would burst if it hit 32 degrees for (maybe) an hour without the heater on. Seriously. They just wanted to turn the heater back on so they wouldn't be cold. Might as well admit it.

I would like to update that the time of our first predicted snow squalls has come and gone with nary a flake.

With regard to our bet are you willing to give me till' the end of today?

It's gonna have to be til I get out of work. We got some snow but it was mixing with rain when I got here, so I actually have no idea what the total is. They don't let us have windows.

I will defer to your judgement, and you have my complete trust with regards to our bet (I have really no way of knowing how much snow you get), but I'm starting to think I lost...and no windows sucks.

No I was really standing. And I hadn't hit solid ground yet, either.

The peak behind me is Alappen (68°56'14.68"N/19° 3'38.80"E if you were wondering).

Well, I had photos, but for some reason I can't get them off Facebook. Usually there's an option to link.

There is currently a sparse covering of an inch or so of snow. The thing is, I was at work with no windows. When I went in there was about 3" as the temp was hitting 32F. Most reports I have heard are that 3-6 inches fell over most of the state before it warmed up, compacted and washed alway. So... The bet was poorly defined in that we didn't specify end storm accumulation or the largest amount of snow on the ground at any point during the storm. Which means I'm not really sure who won.

We'll I'll concede, I'm sure if you had gotten at least 4 inches you would have know.

I wasn't able to right click. It was very weird. I usually use Facebook to host photos here because it's so easy. But thanks! I am glad someone got it to work!

So I was willing to concede on the basis of total snowfall, but the town closest to that (Natick) still only got 3.6 inches. I have no way of knowing what happened at home - Worcester would be closest but it's on the other side of a front line so it could be totally different. As evidenced by this mornings commute, when it snowed to near white-out conditions and covered the roadways at the Leicester/Spencer line and half of Oxford. Nowhere else. It was sunny.

It's 39F/4C here, windy and extremely damp. I hate the dampness. I'd rather it was 20 degrees colder, and dry...I don't care how warm you dress, the dampness just creeps into your bones and tissue, like a cold spirit or demon.

I can't be motivated to go outside in this crap today, skipped my yoga class this morning, and that's the first time all year I skipped a Saturday class.


For me if hell does exist it's not hot at all, but a mild, damp, miserable climate,...so your back, and the mid-point between your shoulders becomes sore from trying to scrunch the muscles together in an attempt to keep warm.

...and of course it's run by kats and nuns.

Where I live, I'd be shocked if we had a snowstorm following a day that was cold. The days [during the winter] where it gets up in the 60s and 70s are actually the days to watch out for being right before the biggest winter storms where I live.

Except for this year... It was just 60s and 70s and now snow, or any cold.  :headshake:

That looks like a load of fun PC, I would love to try that. My neighbors were in Colorado several week's ago, and they went sledding, the little boy who is about five years old was able to drive the sled a few time, with his Mom bundled up on the sled itself, and his Dad in another sled in front of them. They showed me some video and it was really cool, must have had like 8 dogs in the traces.
Anyway the little boy told me that's what he wants to do when he is older, as he was utterly fascinated by it.

We got some snow the other day, but only a light frosting, now it's just cold.

PS, like your accent PC.
Title: Re: Should we talk about the weather?
Post by: Pasta Chick on April 05, 2016, 02:06:42 AM
I would like a 3-6 dog team for myself. More than 6 has always started to feel more like work than fun to me, even outside of sledding. That being said... Dry land training runs when we're on vehicles will go as high as 25 (you can't do that without serious weight behind them - you will literally die).

I just can't afford that many dogs right now. Emotionally either - my anxiety is out of control right now and I thought I was having a heart attack at one point on the run and have since had a panic attack. It's incredibly frustrating because I know from the times I am managing that it doesn't have to be like this, but I don't know what makes it manageable versus not. Now I'm just venting.  :-X

PS - That's sweet you like my voice, although I don't usually talk like that... I can growl baby talk at you if you find it exciting too

Today it rained almost all day long. Aaaah. My lawn needed water badly. I have a sprinkler system that I am hesitant to use.  There is the cost and also the use of water that is only for landscape cosmetic purposes which is not an entirely  responsible thing to do.  We have a cold front moving through that caused the rain. Our temps have approached 90F at mid day but it has been only about 72F all day long. Florida weather is wierd.

Rainy here today and in the 70's (F). Much cooler than last week when it was 20 + degrees warmer. The cooler temps are nice, but the change in weather is playing havoc with my joints. However, I really wish it would start raining again because our neighbors are shooting off fireworks, in defiance of local ordinances.

The weather here keeps shifting between rain showers and clear skies. Kinda wish it would make up it's mind.
The last couple of days it has been quite warm(20-25c) and sunny with little wind. This has however awoken or attracted the worlds population of horse-flies (a.k.a. bitey little bastards!) to this area, which is just perfect considering my summer job keeps me outside all day. >:(

Gloucester, Southeast Oklahoma is roughly 200 miles north of northeast Florida and about 500 miles west of the Florida panhandle.  As for wind direction well yes. We have some arctic air currents that sweep across the country from the  Bering sea areas and thereabouts.  Those currents are very influential and they behave in odd ways. Sometimes they affect the far northern states and leave the more central and southern states unmolested. At other times the current will dip southward and freeze the toes of north Floridians.  Weather is a bitch.

I live in peninsular Florida at about latitude 27. 5.  Right now the weather is beautiful at about 72 F at six o'clock in the evening. Today the temp reached about 78F at mid day. The temp will drop to about 62 F during the night.  That is all well and good but there have been some other seasons when we have had sub freezing nights and unpleasantly cold days.

This is Florida and pretty far south, but the hottest summer temperatures are not  completely debilitating. We reach the low to mid  90s on some mid summer days but rarely do they  approach 100.   If  you look at a world map you could see that I live at about the same level as Bahrain on the latitude line.

 We have wonderfully comfortable weather most of the time but unfortunately too many invaders from the north have discovered our near Camelot. When I was a kid our state population was 900,000. It is now 20 million.  It is far from paradise any more. More than that the damnable mouse has made central Florida a crowded, rude, greedy, place to live. "Mouse" That would be Disney World and similar incredibly popular attractions) The friggin' exhaust gasses from the zillions of tourists' cars and the zillions of airline landings and departures carrying tourists,  probably elevate out temperatures.  Camelot no more! We have a now subdued and unsaid attitude among the natives....It used to be "Yankee go home" Now it is "Yankee, please, for Christs sake, stay home".

 There is a whole industry near the Disney, Universal Studios, Sea World attractions that rent opulent and expensive short term houses to European visitors including more Brits than others. Not to misunderstand me here. We like the Brits. We cheerfully take their money and generally accord them their due courtesy and even some friendships.  ...............well looky here I have gone off the deep end with a loquacious fit of frenzy again  Pardon me please.  .....anyway Glou, Oklahoma is a long way from Florida.

^Our standards for good weather are completely different.

For me nice weather happens in the range from the mid 40s to the 60s (lower than that is very easy to deal with - layers!). Any warmer than that and it starts getting unpleasant. Low 70s can be tolerable. But generally they're accompanied with no wind and sun, and that's miserable. Even with wind, they have too much warmth for me. I prefer it cooler.

Florida ain't no Camelot. You couldn't pay me enough to even visit such a miserable place. Well there's *one* reason I would, but we're not going into that. :blush: (because it's not going anywhere  :waah: )

Western Oklahoma is actually kind of neat. They have mesas and stuff over there. Plus, they actually get snow over there. Their temperature ranges are even crazier than over here, though. Like I remember one time where it was 90 degrees, and then there was an ice storm all within 48 hours.

Oklahoma is a wild place.

Still, I'm not sure what you're saying here? I suppose I live further in East Oklahoma than I did a year ago. So I'm a slight bit closer to Florida. But it shouldn't make this much of a difference. I swear East Oklahoma has shifted to the Southeast climatically. You really get that feeling when it's still hitting the mid 80s in November.

Oops, I put "south west" when I meant "south east"! Oklahoma doesn't seem to have much south in its far west!

I was just alluding to the fact that, largely, weather is shaped by and comes from elsewhere. As an island Britain has either Atlantic (wet and warmish if from the SW), Arctic (cold and wet) or European (cold and dry) winter weather. It will also be modified by local altitude of course.

Looking at the weather map on my phone, it's showing the following forecast for tomorrow and beyond.

There seems to be great blackness looming up slowly out of the East, which will eat up the faint blurred stars in the sky.

Later the sinking moon will escape briefly from the pursuing clouds, but it will be ringed all about with a sickly yellow glare, and on Saturday no day will come, only a dead brown twilight, and back in the East there will be a dull red glare under the lowering clouds;  this will not be from the red of dawn.

The dead brown twilight shall remain the norm for all days.

Looking out from my office window all I can see is dun, a shadowless world, fading slowly into a featureless, colourless gloom.

It feels stifling but not warm; and at least there's no snow to shovel.

Been clear and frosty for last couple of days here in Gloucester.

Which meant I was lucky enough to see one of the Perseid meteor shower pass over as I happened to glance out if the window last night.

Too bloody cold to go out with the camera and wait in hope and no where to set it up on fish-eye and long exposure - too much light polution anyway. There is a hill not far away, shadowed from the city lights by another hill, where the local star gazers congregate on crisp winter nights for their rituals. Whilst I sit in the warm and raise a glass of wine, or a mug of hot chocolate, to their endeavours!

That's quite a large increase, I'm glad climate change is only Chinese propaganda, I wouldn't like this sort of thing to become the norm.

It's mid February here in Michigan, and the temperature today could reach 60 degrees F. This isn't normal, average high for this time of year is 37.

Today could set an all-time new record, and the temperature for the next week will be an average high of mid-50's each day. (We've had practically no snowfall at all so far this winter)

We have a president and administration, as well as a majority of Republicans who think climate science, like everything else is fake, and junk science, as well as an overwhelming number of Americans, most of whom supported Trump who think the same...I guess  we here in Michigan can be thankful that we'll at least have nice weather as we head towards the apocalypse.

The Great Lakes which surround Michigan rely not only on run-off from snowfall, but increased precipitation as well during the spring. Currently the Lake levels are on the rise after a nearly decade of below average (Even some record lows for Lakes Michigan and Huron for the period 2000-2010)
Even though the snowfall rate this winter is down, there still has been quite a bit of rainfall so the current forecast for the Lakes this year is continued increase in levels which is good.

Winter has been unusually warm this year, last month was among the warmest Januaries on record, and yesterday the metro Detroit area beat the high record of 62 set in 1961 with a temperature of 69 degrees.

It was hotter yesterday here in metro Detroit than much of southern California, Arizona and New Mexico. But, meh...global warming.

Except, I mean, it's still an abnormality up there. Down where I live, it was like that back in the early to mid 2000s, but then the late 2000s came about and now it hits the 60s and 70s regularly every winter. There's hardly been a single week this "winter" where we haven't seen 60s and 70s. So pathetic.

The weather forecasters are still acting like it's some anomaly. As if it's any shock whatsoever that it's this warm in February, when it's been like this for years.

Where I live "lame" has come to mean "uncool". Not in a temperature sense, but oh my gosh this is so hard to explain. Essentially it means "Not good" but in an exaggerated slang-way. Which accurately describes how I think of the weather being the way it is.

As a child of the 50s and 60s I am well aquainted with "cool" as a grade of acceptedness, desirability and things like that. Later we had "ace" if I remember, but not quite the same. You could see a "cool bird/chick" but a desirable motorbike would more likely be "ace" over here. We imported "cool" from the States along with rock and roll of course.

So, a "cool" day might be a comfortably warm on on the beach or a freezing one on the ski slopes!

Can't remember the last time we had the volume and intensity of lightening as we did last night, reminded me at times of an artillery barrage.

Completely surprised we didn't loose power....about 1230 last night I could hear the neighbors dog howling from inside his house from all of the racket, even our house was shaking, to the point I could hear not only the windows rattling, but pictures on the walls.

February went up in smoke. It was supposed to be winter, but it was just another month of warm/hot weather with only a few chilly days here and there. Now everyone's chanting "It's Spring" and I want to go cry. Other things in life have got me depressed, too. I don't even know what to do anymore.

Later: just opened curtains, evidence so far is that the ringed "summary" is the more accurate - wispy  cloud and sunshine, no wet stuff in evidence.

Wind is nuts here in Southfield where I work, building feels and sounds like it's going to fall over. I had to run out earlier and driving on the freeway was nuts, with winds gusting up to 50 mph.

I saw a number of signs blown over, and right here by our office one of the tall street lights fell over into a parking lot at the Coney Island and hit a couple cars.


I have a generator at home, but I haven't fired it up in probably 10 years, almost afraid to at this point. Probably need to run some type of fuel cleaner through it, or since I have very little engine aptitude (Patience that is) maybe I'll take it to a small engine tech to check out for me.

^^^Guardian, do you have moose where you live? Growing up in Alaska, we would sometimes see moose hanging out on a roof that they had just walked up the snow mound to. My neighbor's carport got on the front page of our local newspaper once because there was a moose standing on it.  It's what I miss most about AK. Moose.
As far as here in Georgia, you wouldn't know it to look outside right now, because it's beautiful, calm, warm and sunny, but tomorrow everything has been cancelled due to a strong threat of tornadoes. It's like a snow day, but scarier.

It's actually nice today! A rare occurrence during this season. Earlier it was actually a little weird. It's been in the low to mid 50s today, but when I was walking back from class earlier the wind was blowing like a severe thunderstorm (I would know, I had to walk in front of one yesterday) and it was pelting rain like ice, so it actually felt cold. It even sounded like ice hitting the cars, but I know it wasn't.

The plural of moose is moosen. Just an FYI.

As in there are many moosen in Guardian's village, much, moosen. There were many of 'em. Many much, moosen. Out in the woods—in the woodes—in the woodsen. The meese want the food. Food is to eatenesen!THE MEESE WANT THE FOOD IN THE WOODENESEN! AND THE FOOD IN THE WOODYENESEN!

There's actually been a few nice days as of late. A real shock, especially this late into the season. However, it's also come alongside a lot of thunderstorms, which I don't really like because they upset my dog.

Yesterday it stayed in the 50s all day. Love it! Today it was in the mid to upper 60s. The sun was shining, but the wind was blowing a very nice and cool breeze. The weather's actually being Springlike during Spring? Of course, people are complaining about it being "cold". ::)

we get the aftermath of the storm. Imagine  thick mist, but instead of moisture, it's sand.  It's not windy, the dust just/... sits there. Sometimes it's better sometimes it's worse. Stuffed nose, itchy eyes, sand in your teeth and your butt!

Also that I paid out for one with remote control.

Hmmm, wonder if I can modify my dehumidifier into an air conditioner. Currently it blows warm, dry air into the room rather than cold, dry air. Hmm, need a trunk to a vent to get the warm air outside without letting the cold air escape.

We have had a mild winter, with minimum temperatures at night around 5° and daytime maxima of 16 to 20. Our winter humidity is very low, because it does not rain for a few months. So we have beautiful clear skies and bright sunshine. The downside is lots of static shocks when one touches door handles and other metal objects. The trick is to touch a wall first to discharge oneself before touching any metal.

Used to suffer that in a well carpetted, air conditioned work location, could draw sparks from a finger to a metal plate type light switch. Found the solution was the quick open palmed slap, dissipate the energy over a larger, low resistance area rather than the "electrode" of a finger tip.

Once demonstrated static to some nephews and nieces by getting one to stand on four short glass tumblers and stroke the cat wearing a plastic glove on that hand. Then  move the forefinger of the other hand towards the cat's nose.

No! I like those little "zebra" jumping spiders!  There is a whole family of them near the front door and they always come out to see what is causing the vibrations on the door when I open it or work on it.

Here's (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porto_Alegre#Climate) the Wikipedia entry for the city of Porto Alegre,capital of the southernmost state of Rio Grande do Sul. For some reason I am unable to copy the image link address and paste it here. :notsure:

As I said previously, it's not as harsh as winter in some parts of the northern hemisphere, but our infrastructure is worse. Right now it's 13 degrees Celsius, I'm indoors and it feels like it's around there.

Not unexpectedly for central Florida, the daytime temps are running from 80 to 90F. Late afternoon brings wicked rainstorms with attendant high winds. At those times the temp may drop into the low 70s.

Yesterday I was seeing my young Lithuanian house guest off at the Orlando airport.  After seeing him off, sure as hell when we got on the shuttle bus to the parking area, the sky began to fall.  A positive deluvian event took place and when the bus dropped us at canopy D, there was damned little the simple sun shade canopy could do to protect friend wife from the driving rain. .... It was my responsibility to fetch the car that was parked some 200 yards  away in a storm of epic proportion.  I was a soggy hero but I did get the car and we departed the parking lot. The rain made driving most challenging. Low visibility and dumb fuck, reckless, speeding, drivers in this incredibly high trafficked area made the adventure less than fun.

By the grace of the FSM we did make it the 60 miles home from that damned airport.  The adjective damned is a mild one. There are at least five thousand parking spaces in two  covered multistory garages at that airport.  All those spaces are routinely filled and so one must resort to remote parking where there are another five thousand places to park.....alll for money you should note.  The remote areas are well served by an admirably efficient shuttle bus service to and from the remote areas.

My most sincere advice to any of my esteemed HAF colleagues is to avoid Orlando International airport no matter how much your children need to experience the DisneyWorld thing. Truth to tell the weather is not always bad. It is a bitch at this time of year but the daily thunder and rain storms usually abate in Mid July.

Nice recount of your experience Icarus, and I salute you for braving the downpour and allowing yourself to get drenched,...I myself got drenched last evening as well. Left the gym after my workout and of course my car was at the farthest point from the door as it could be as the club was crowded when I arrived earlier.
Then when I arrived at home because of the road and sewer work being done on my street I had to park several houses down, and across the street from my home.
I walked in the front door dripping, and had to practically undress right there.

This brought to mind an experiment I had read about some time ago, whether it was better to run for cover during a downpour or walk. Last night there were two other gentlemen departing the gym at the same time as I and they chose to sprint to their cars, I thinking it wiser to walk quickly did so.
The thought is this, if you run during a downpour the movement of your body through the rain actually exposes your body to more water...I'm thinking that I should have just grabbed the umbrella from my car (Forgot I had it) ::)

So last weekend was simply beautiful here in Michigan, warm, sunny, not a lot of wind. I got close to 100 miles on my bike between Saturday and Sunday, one of the best fall weekends I've enjoyed in a while.

However. Since Monday it's been damp, rainy and simply blah, and it's not going to get any better moving into the weekend. Sunday it will only be partly cloudy with no rain, but the the high is only going to reach 50F.

Michigan is nice, and I love the four seasons, especially fall and winter, but I get crazy when the two get mixed up together. You wake up and it's 50 degrees outside, and later that night you are shoveling a foot of snow. ::)

I live just 30 minutes outside Ann Arbor, where the U of M campus is. Very nice city. My sister lives there, and we spend a lot of time there, especially during the summer months as it is a great place to walk and bike. Lots of good restaurants, bars, coffee shops and bookstores.

Michigan is nice, and I love the four seasons, especially fall and winter, but I get crazy when the two get mixed up together. You wake up and it's 50 degrees outside, and later that night you are shoveling a foot of snow. ::)

I live just 30 minutes outside Ann Arbor, where the U of M campus is. Very nice city. My sister lives there, and we spend a lot of time there, especially during the summer months as it is a great place to walk and bike. Lots of good restaurants, bars, coffee shops and bookstores.

It's a bit crazy when there is a football game going on though...but fun.

You would be driven quite thoroughly crazy in Oklahoma. I have seen it get up into the 80s during the day and snow that night. I have also seen the Western part of the state go from 90 degrees to ice storm conditions in under 48 hours.

Anyway, all of my jealousy. U of M holds a special place for me for reasons that would be very off-topic here.

The weather here in the St. Louis, Missouri area was wonderful Friday. The high was 73 F. Highly unusual for this time of year. Saturday will be a bit cooler with a high of 59 F, but still warm for this time of year.

We just hope we have enough decent food in!

We've had a chilly stretch of days, but sadly that's coming to an end today.

Looking at the forecast for the rest of the month, it really looks like winter is ending earlier than it did last year and with no snow at all. The coast of Texas and Florida have seen snow, but we still don't get any!

We received some snow here in Michigan yesterday, enough that I had to shovel...it was very pretty, just a soft and gentle snowfall...maybe 3-4 inches total. I stopped by a local coffee shop, and was sitting talking with one of the owners, and we both commented about how picturesque it was outside at the time.
All of the Christmas decorations were up, and the light posts in the square were wrapped in evergreen with green and blue lights softly glowing, and the snow was falling gently giving it a real snow globe feel.



It's also kinda funny. If you go out and look and everyone's sidewalk and driveways today the snow has been cleared off very neatly and complete from one edge to another,...fast forward to end of February and some folks will just shove little pathways on the sidewalks, and portions of driveways and porches will be left covered, cuz' by that time you're just so tired of it, but right now it's all very pretty and poetic.

Anyway, today I'm putting away all of my summer clothes and getting out my winter sweaters, long-johns, scarves and mittens, snowboots...nothing like waiting until the last minute. ;D

Yesterday was hot (probably around 30 something degrees, I don't know just how much) but since the two walls of my room are basically unprotected from the afternoon sun by the time I'm going to bed it's an oven. 

I turned on the fan and tossed my covers aside but at around 4 am I woke up, feeling cold and very annoyed.  >:(

We received about 5-6 inches of snow where I live in Dearborn last night, and this morning the temperature dropped down to 20F so not only was I shoveling snow, but had to scrape ice and snow of the car windows...sun is currently shining and it once again looks very pretty out, especially now that the roads have been cleared of snow and salted.

Supposed to get another 5 inches tomorrow, so looking forward to a nice drive into work tomorrow...so nice to have Father Winter back... ::)

Bloody Jesus Christ, but we got hit with some snow yesterday, and it's been cold as fuckity fuck...only like 10 degrees F this morning.

I had to leave the office in the afternoon for a meeting, normally the drive would take about 30 minutes or so, yesterday it took me over two mother-fucking hours...from the place we had the meeting is about 5 miles from my home, but it took me about 35 minutes to go that 5 miles.
So I went to a yoga class just to destress, got home about 9pm, then had to shovel the 8 inches or more of snow we got, then line up the cars in the driveway because the city declared it a snow emergency (Which means no parking on the street so they can plow and salt)

Get up this morning early, so I can shovel out the end of my driveway, clean off the cars and do more shoveling because we got another inch or two last night and then drive in to work

Tomorrow morning I have to get up even earlier and drive my friend and his family to the airport, we have to take their van because his wife believes in traveling heavy and taking way more than is fucking needed for any trip.(She's also a hoarder so go figure right?)
So after dropping them off I have to drive back to their house, drop off their van, and then drive into work...and they are saying we might get more fucking snow!
Then tomorrow afternoon I have to drive 45 minutes to an hour to have our office Christmas party, which in turn is over an hour from my house in normal conditions.
If we get more snow I could be on the road for hours.

Happy Fucking Holidays Everyone :P

Today was better here, the sun was out all day and the snow is nice and powdery...watching my friend Kahlua for a week so we took a short walk out in the woods, it was nice.

Today I'm enjoying the cold and snow, just dealing with it during the work week some times is annoying...guess I'm wishy-washy:)

I do like it much better when I don't have to get up a half hour early and scrape ice off my car in the dark to go to work.

I'll probably put booties on my dog and try a short walk anyway tomorrow. I still worry about them pulling something slipping around on this type of snow though.

I plan to spend it at home with my parents and dogs. Hopefully I'll get to see some friends while I'm back home, too, but I don't know that will happen on my birthday.

The weather forecasters are flipping back and forth saying it might snow on pretty much every day from Christmas Eve on. That might keep me at home, but you know how things have been around here lately, we only get an inch or less of snow in any "storms" anymore so I doubt there's anything to worry about at all.

EDIT: And right when I posted this they took out all of those chances of snow at all. Of course. I miss the days back when we had real winter storms. Now we just hope we'll even get one inch. We're no longer in the range for real winter storms anymore. And in fact, we're hardly in the range to get any at all given how much this has flip flopped and thrown us out of the range of the snow at all.

So Friday at noon we had our Christmas luncheon, it is about a 30 minute drive on a good day, and Friday it was snowing again. Everyone left the office about 1100 to there by 1145 which was the scheduled start time. I had to deal with a couple work related fires so I had to leave a bit later, but I told my boss I should arrive by noon.

I'm on the freeway, fairly heavy traffic moving slower than normal because of the snow, as it is a bit slick out...at one point traffic slowed down even more because a truck had jack-knived on the other side of the freeway and everyone was slowing down to take a look as there were both fire and police there.
At this point a large semi in the lane next to me was trying to merge over so I let him get in front of me, and as he completed his merge all of the snow and ice that was accumulated on the top of his trailer slid off and landed on the front of my car...I was completely blinded and put on my brakes, the sound of it was like a large pile of bricks and I was sure my windshield was cracked and most likely my hood was going to be dented.

I had to get out of the car and push the snow off my windshield even before I could pull over to the side of the expressway...ended up loosing my passenger-side windshield wiper, and luckily was able to find and reattach the driver side wiper.

I sweep the snow and chunks of ice off the front of my car, which is when I noticed the front of my car was covered in blue anti-freeze liquid. They must have sprayed the top of this trailer at his yard before he left...

I end up getting to the luncheon about 1215, but fortunately I had a good excuse as any for being late...and when we left everyone could see the blue shit all over the front of my car, plus the missing windshield wiper which squeaked (Metal on glass sound) the entire time home as it was still snowing so I had no choice but to put the wipers on.

I swear to whatever god is out there that I must have a fucking bull-eyes on the my back, as I got in the big accident back in September which totaled my car, then I got rear-ended again about 3-weeks ago, and now this...I bought new wiper-blades yesterday and also got my car washed, and fortunately there doesn't seem to be any hood damage.

One of my co-workers brought up how everything always happens in threes, you know like celebrity deaths and other bad stuff, so she told me not to worry anymore cuz' I had my three bad events with the car so now I'm all done and should have no worries for a while...I just nodded and thought yes thanks for easing my mind with that superstitious nonsense. (She's a rather devout Christian, so go figure)

Tomorrow it's supposed to either rain and/or snow some more, which is perfect it being a Monday and all...Happy Holidays!

The weather was kinder today: cloudy sky, looked like it was going to rain all day, refreshing wind (not breeze, wind) and best of all, the heat was bearable.

There must have been a lot of people praying these past few days.

So we get snow, and then we get more snow, and we shovel, and salt, and shovel and salt some more. My sidewalk and driveway are clean, as is the back patio and the path I made to the back of the garage where I keep my trash cans. I even shovel around my grill because I use it all year.

All of the streets and roadways are cleaned up and life is back to normal.

The snow was piled high, and it looked pretty spread out across the neighborhood lawns and along the riverbank near my house. I took a long walk with the dog in the woods, and we stopped to admire the snow piled up on the logs in the river, and how the ice dams form near the bends.

But as always happens here the weather can't make up it's mind, and now the temperature has shot back up into the 40's so all of the snow is melting, and it's getting muddy and ugly....This is the thing I wish was different, I wish winter would stay winter as it's supposed to...with the snow piling up, and the temperature hovering around the mid 20's, maybe up around 30 during the day. Cold, but dry with a nice little bite to the air...but this mild winter bullshit is so depressing, it's been so warm the last couple days that the snow is rapidly melting.

Not sure who's in charge of this stuff, but they aren't doing a good job, not at all. :sadwave:

To hear 40s considered as mild weather. I suppose Global Warming is just only now beginning to hit Michigan. Meanwhile it has become so prevalent down here that highs in the 60s/70s are just standard winter weather to us now. The meteorologists always acted surprised and call it "Spring fever", but even I see their surprise dwindling as the years pass by, recognizing that it's becoming the norm (and to call it "Spring fever" when that's actually winter weather and Spring is just hot and humid hurts me).

Of course the snow for Christmas Eve that I mentioned in my last post here is now no longer there, in fact there's now a 0% chance of precipitation. That's what always happens. We are still sitting at no snow, which is even worse than last year, where we had a couple of dustings. The pattern looks chilly and active starting in a couple of days, but they keep flip flopping and taking all chances of winter precipitation out. I'm led to believe none of it's going to happen.

The "cold" times here are getting fewer and fewer. We had a few cool weeks last year, this time it was two days. When I was going to college, it was often below freezing in the mornings between the end of November and March. Not so much the last few years. I used to be able to wear long sleeved shirts or hoodies all day long for weeks at a time. I was only able to do that for two days this winter so far. And it's not looking good for cool temps this year.

The seasons seems to have shifted here by one month. We had only a couple of days in December with freezing temperatures. At New Years eve the temperature was 15-17 degrees Celsius. We didn't need to wear a coat to watch the fireworks outside. January should normally be colder, but is is still pretty mild with 6-9 degrees.

It's been chilly lately! Like chilly weather we don't see very often. The high on Monday was 17F. Northerners are laughing, I'm sure. I know that's not anywhere near as cold as it can get, but where I live it is a once in a blue moon kind of day where it doesn't get out of the teens for a high. The last time I remember it happening was 2008.

It was the first time I've seen ponds frozen in several years. In recent years below freezing temperatures have been so short-lived that even shallow creeks and puddles have had trouble freezing.

The meteorologists said this (several days below freezing) was a real bug killer which is so nice. There were moths swarming me coming in the house in December before the most recent cold shot. Needless to say, I was furious, because there shouldn't be bugs in between November and April. Period. No exceptions. But in recent years the bugs have never completely gone away and pop up and fly into my face whenever the temperatures rise into the 60s (which happened A LOT last "winter").

Regardless, the cold is not going to stick around, and, of course, still no winter storms. None at all. The fact that this last cold shot was completely dry just makes me pretty certain we will not see any winter storms this winter, once again. =(

Would really like to see snow on the campus before I graduate, but I guess that's just too tall of an order.

We're under that "polar vortex" and have been for some time. The temp hit 21F as a high yesterday and that felt balmy. We've been mostly single digits. There's a... As far as I can tell, some manner of winter hurricane that's coming up from the south, all warm from the ocean. So that's going to slam us tonight, bringing warm temps with moisture and 1-3" of snow per hour in its 50+ mph winds.

So that'll be interesting.

Then the polar vortex pushes it out and it'll be like -20F for a while, which will be super fun if every one loses power.

That's what we've had here in Michigan. In fact we just beat a state record from back in the 70's for most consecutive days with the temperature 20 degrees below freezing.

It's been insanely cold here...during the New Years Eve weekend I was in northern Michigan visiting with my daughter and son-in law and not only was it freezing, but we had a couple days of ice fog which made driving hazardous as hell, especially out on the rural roads, and to top it off we got hit with 14 inches of snow one day.

For the record, you guys can keep your freezing cold weather, snow and ice, I'll just stay inside with the cooling on having a nice cold gin and tonic!

So my little corner of Northern Indiana got hit by a storm that dumped a fair bit of snow on us in the last 24 hours. It is amazing how many people have suddenly forgotten how to drive. We have these big ass 4WD SUVs sliding off the road and skidding through intersections. That or putting around at 10 miles an hour on a straight, plowed road.

I got quite bored driving my old mini on snow, much too stable. My old MGB Roadster was much more fun, going round corners sideways or doing 360s on big car parks at 3am! But I learned a lot about slide recovery as well.

The chicken poop in the coop had grown huge fluffy clouds of mold in the last couple days, and shoes left on the porch are in danger of molding too. It's just nasty.

We really got hit here in southeast Michigan last week with snow, and cold weather. In fact here around Detroit we got about 16 inches, most of which fell on Friday...took all weekend to dig out.

Caused major issues with work,...still haven't caught up yet.

This week it will be dry and cold, but should start to warm up by the weekend.

I'll make a guess: if you are not into making perry (or cider in the case of apples)  clearing up dropped fruit if a real pain in the back! It's why I designed a garden shoveller-lifter thing for my friend's sack truck. You could shove the apples into it, transport and then bag them actually without needing to lift them yourself. (Works with leaves, dirt etc.) Then she moved to an apple free zone before I finished it . . .

When these houses were put in back in the 90s a tree called the Bradford pear was very, very popular because they grow quickly and have very impressive flowers. They look like cotton balls from a distance.

Unfortunately the Bradford has proven to be an extremely invasive species. They were supposed to be sterile but cross pollinate with Cleveland pears to create a truly awful hybrid that's covered in long, sharp thorns. These offspring create an extremely dense, low canopy that crowds out all native plant species. Not even grass and common weeds get enough light to grow. The fruit is inedible and the leaves have a thick waxy coating that repels herbivores and insects.

Places where their spread has gone unchecked have seen huge amounts of land become wastelands, save for these Bradford Cleveland hybrids. When cut, these trees regrow into a thick bush that's even more damaging than full trees. Think hedgerows in Normandy...

Even powerfull herbicides seem to have little effect. Roundup won't phase them, even the specific woody plant formulations. Crossbow might tinge the edges of the leaves but they recover quickly. I've tried a substance called KILLALL on freshly cut and drilled stumps and the sucker branches still crawl out of the holes like some hellish vine.

Copper sulfate will kill them but is so toxic to plants that it leaves a barren plain for quite some time. Fire can be used but their thick root system creates a smoldering hazard that could go unnoticed for days and... if the fire doesn't sufficiently damage the root system fresh suckers will spring up. Thorny and hateful. Fast growing enough that natie plants can't crowd them out. To add insult to injury, I've heard the smell of their rotting flowers compared to the mop bucket from a blowjob bar in Thailand.

But they look so pretty.

Yeah, I hate these trees with a passion. One other aspect I forgot to mention. They have a spreading branch structure with almost no bole which makes these trees weak and succeptible to wind damage. So if you plant them near your house make sure you have some siding stashed away to match. They will eventually split and come down in a storm.

Hey look, with mention of a storm we're back to talking about the weather! :D

Been a day of frigid winds and bright sunshine interspersed with driving snow.

Four days ago I could turn the gas heater (850W) in my single room on at 9am (boosted by 30 minutes of an electric fan heater), off at midday, on again at 6pm to maintain a comfortable temp.

That heater was turned on Monday morning and has not been turned off since - running 24hrs and is just about maintaining 21C. Next notch is 1.5kW and too warm. I have kept the bathroom door open so I don't freeze any bits off on my frequent nightly visits!

Actually, being at the far diagonal from the heater the bathroom collects quite a lot of the warm air before it cools a little and slithers back across the floor. Where I sit, in the other diagonal corner, from the window, is probably the cooler axis.

Friend just emailed to say that her 8" high Yorkie just went out into the garden for a crap, then broke through the crust into 9" snow! Very unhappy pooch!

Reminded me of my first posting out of training in the RAF, the deep, deep winter of 1962-3. I was crossing the aitfield, on foot, on the snow, after doing daily inspections on some radio gear.

I kept thinking something was wrong. Then I got it, I could see the field over the 6ft boundary hedge. At that point the crust gave way and I disappeared into five feet + of drifted snow - there was a slight dip at that point. When I had floundered my way out and got back to the control tower all the controllers were in fits of laughter - to them I had simply disappeared in an instant!

No bugger sent out a rescue team though!

Added:  Our CO actually got a rollicking for allowing a first line airfield to be closed by snow. But we were in a cluster of three airfields sharing the same clearance equipment. Not just snow ploughs but one pair of old Meteor jet engines, on a "push trailler" in front of a tanker, used like giant hair dryers to "blow-dry" the runways.

Oh, and three of us were awarded "fatigues" (snow clearing appropriately) for having a snowball fight with the USAF liaison captain! I guess the csptain got a private, "Just not British, old chap.." type telling off.

Saw a TV film once that, very convincingly and very frightening, dramatised such an event. With that on one side and a dodgy bit of geology on La Palma in the Canaries that will inundate the Cartibean and the whole East coasts of America and Canada (and the West coast of part of Africa) with a tsunami 30 - 50+m high.

Yeah.  I read something a while back about the North American Plate moving over the Yellowstone magma chamber which will put it under a protective layer of very solid rock for a geologically long time, preventing a catastrophic eruption within the human lifetime -- but only if the magma gets under the rock before anything dicey happens.  In the meantime, they've found another buried super-volcano out in the Californian desert.  Yippee.

Might be sleeping in the car because of this damn wind. Ferry is down, interstates are clogged and cut off. I'm trapped... drove two and a half hours to get to work and probably won't make it home tonight.

There's many over here that know that problem, including a commuter train load of people stuck all night with no food or heater in the snow and a guy who took 15 hours to do a 1 hour car journey - then got stuck at work because of broken down and crashed vehicles clogging the road. We have had a surgeon walking miles to do an urgent operation and many other incredible, dedicated people doing their best to get important things done.

There have been stories to boost my feelings about human nature.

I made it out and got as far as my mom's house. Lots of downed trees and one guy was killed yesterday when power lines fell on his truck. The temperature dropped into the 20s so I had to make a move somewhere.

The sun is shining, it's way too darn warm, everything's turning green, the bugs are coming back, and I want to die... Cry.

But it was on this mid 60s day I was walking outside to the store and had to stop and think "What is wrong with me?". Even though it is sunny, the mid 60s should not feel hot. They're supposed to be in between hot and cold... Yet, here I am truthfully feeling hot. I have to wonder what is going on with me.

It started snowing here about 6:30. I set off to work at 6:55. Got 5 miles into a 14 mile journey... and stopped. 30 minutes stationary I turned around. All-in-all it took 2:15 to go 10 miles. By all accounts Leeds is still gridlocked at 10:28. The forcast it 8°C and  that appears to be the case so while it's still snowing it's also thawing!

Before the winter of 2011, we used to get a good snow every single winter, though. Ever since then, it's been like 1 inch or less every year. Yet in early 2011 it was over a foot in one storm and over 20 inches for the winter total. =/

They do now, actually.

It's hard for me to believe. In 2011, when there was a foot of snow on the ground and the temperature was -20 F outside, my college did not cancel classes (K-12 schools did close, though. That's only common sense, you don't want kids out in such cold temperatures).

In recent years, schools close down if there's an inch of snow on the ground, including the same college mentioned above.

Seven years of no winter has changed a lot of things. But it hasn't changed ignorant peoples' minds on global warming.  ::)

After swathing myself in waterproofs before going out to the car the downpour stopped as soon as I got in it.

The 20 minute drive needed wipers only for a few drops blown off the hood by the slipstream.

Except for the last 100 yards when the clouds dumped their full load once again, so I had a 200 yard dash (well, sort of dash) through a seeming waterfall.

I enjoy our winters here in Michigan, and love the snow, butt the time for that is over. It's actually been a long, cold winter, and I've shoveled enough snow for the time being.

"When Chekhov saw the long winter, he saw a winter bleak and dark and bereft of hope".

I'm tired of the cold, and of the snow, I want warmth and sunshine and a little hope.

I want to drive my car with the windows down.

I want to walk into the house without having to take boots off, or salt-crusted shoes.

I'm tired of wearing gloves, and a scarf or waiting for my car to warm up in the morning.

I want to walk out into our warehouse at work and not have to put on a jacket.

When I take my yoga mat out of my car to go to class I don't want to feel like I'm laying naked on a thin sheet of ice.

I want to sit outside on the patio and enjoy the early morning sun, watch the sunrise...I'd like to go to sleep at night and not have to lather up my hand with skin lotion, and then sleep with socks on my hands cuz' my hands dry out from the cold...maybe sleep with the windows open.

I want to take a nap in my hammock, under the trees, listening to the birds while a soft breeze folds over my face.

That's it...that's all I want.

I understand about dry hands/skin. That's pretty much the only thing that I see as bad about winter, and it is really annoying. I feel like since 2012 my hands have gotten a lot drier during winters. I think it has to do with me working. It hasn't gotten any better since I left and returned to school so it must be permanent. *sigh*

For me, I want the snow, though. This cold that will hopefully bring us some snow will be gone in a day or two.

If this snows and actually accumulates at all, then it will be the very FIRST time I've seen snow here since I came to this college two years ago. BRING IT ON, I say.

I mean, have I not explained myself well enough? I don't live where you do. Snow is not something that sticks around all winter and beyond. Snow is something that we're lucky if we see it at all nowadays.

Also I don't much care for the sun in nearly any context. If it's below 50 degrees than the sun is fine, but if it's above that it is too hot, unless combined with a consistent North breeze. Even still, once it gets up into the 70s it becomes too warm whether or not there is a North breeze or not.

We can agree on cats and dogs, though. I much prefer dogs.

There was a big, shiny thing in the sky today. We talked amongst ourselves, debating what it might be. One said it was "The Sun" but we decided that was merely the stuff of myth and legend; of stories told to children, on dismal days, to allay their fears.

Another nice day with temperatures in the upper 40s. The sun showed up today, which I would usually dislike, but since the temperatures are so cool, it doesn't make it uncomfortable.

Apparently we've broke the record of April freezes this year, and doubled the record with that! Oklahoma must be seeing that I'm thinking of moving and is trying to redeem itself, but it's already too late.  :smileshake:

Mother Nature is cruel...back on April 12th it reached a high of 77 F. Then the temperature dropped back down to low 30, with a high of 39 for several days. Last Sunday we had an ice storm which wreaked havoc on the area with downed trees and branches. I have several large branches in my yard and one on my garage that I need to remove and cut down to firewood size; plus about 250,000 people were without power for 2-4 days including my workplace on Monday which totally sucked.
It was fucking freezing in the office all day, and the warehouse was even worse. We didn't get power on until 1530.

Fortunately we were able to get some generators going, but we don't have anything powerful enough to work in the warehouse so those poor guys worked in the cold and dark most of the day, plus the dock-plates at all of our loading docks are electric so I had to rig up some straps and hooks that we could attached to the forklifts in order to lift them up. It was an extremely long day.

Tuesday morning we woke up to snow on the ground.

Then yesterday we actually had a 3.9 magnitude earthquake...which was centered only about 15 miles outside Detroit which is extremely weird and unusual. In fact most times we here in Michigan feel tremors is when they occur in other states.

Mid to high 90's is typical for this time of year in this area. However, today's high is supposed to be 82 F. For the St. Louis area in late June that can almost be classified as a miracle.

I take back everything I said. I decided that since the weather was a slight bit less miserable than it would be any other day of the week I should walk to the store. Bad idea. It turns out that the temperature rose up to 87 degrees. I also should have worn lighter colored clothes, you'd think I'd learn after last time, but I do like my dark colored clothes too much. lol

2pm-ish, just put recycling out, that sun is dangerous! Have not felt sunlight that hot for a long time. Forecast says 29C, currently 28C indoors with venetian blind down and north side windows open. Lack of humidity and ceiling fan making it just tolerable.

Guessing that is a kind of evaporative cooler? Hmm, could hang some wicks or damp cloths under the ceiling fan . . . Or dig out the floor fan (a space heater but it blows cold as well), a bowl of water, some cloth, the clothes dryer to hang the cloth from . . .

Or I could put my tablet in its waterproof case and sit under the shower . . .

I just looked up what the temperatures have been in Perth in the last ten days, and... That's not cold, at all. Lol. Well, I'm not meaning to tell you how you feel in temperatures, but for me, that is so far from cold! The problem is with temperatures that warm all throughout winter, every other season must be downright miserable.

I already experience some of that where I live, but at least where I live there is the capacity for cold days. In Perth its just mild the whole winter through, it looks like.

I need to live somewhere like New England where four seasons are more likely to occur. Of course, this year early Spring really got snubbed up there, but down here I'm sick and tired of Summer dominating as I hate pretty much everything about the summer - the bugs, the heat, the humidity, the severe thunderstorms and tornadoes, etc., etc.

I know I'm crazy and don't know what I'm getting myself into going up there, but I want to live! And with summer taking over all four seasons where I live, I'm not very happy.

I know that's the common perception but large areas of Australia really do have four seasons and although possibly very hot on a few days per year we also have mild weather and even cold weather.  Snow on the nearby hills around Melbourne is not much of an oddity.  If you really want to avoid the heat, you could always try Tasmania, not much to worry about there!

Temperatures have fallen into the upper 70s even though it's still light outside. It's been cloudy most of the day. Sadly when I walked to trade my textbook back in, it was still well into the 80s. Yuck.

Eh... According to the Köppen climate classification (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humid_subtropical_climate) the only temperate region of Australia is humid subtropical. That's the kind of area I am already in, and I am not satisfied.

Granted, I know to take that with a grain of salt, because there is just no way that the deep South has the same exact kind of climate that I do. But I would bet that whatever kind of four seasons Australia gets, it is very warm. I mean, obviously, I'm not from there, but everything I've heard, every time I've checked the temperatures, it has much milder winters than even where I live and that says a lot.

That's not for me. I belong in a colder temperate climate, like New England area states.

Heatwave?  Yeah, I remember when I was over there in 2016 on a cruise on Derwent Water.  It was about 24°C and all the people on the boat were complaining about the heat and I was debating whether or not to take my jumper off.  LOL

I live somewhere where it gets much hotter than that regularly during the summer, and even I think that is waayyy too warm for any kind of long sleeve wear. Heck last winter I was getting too warm and sweating in 60sF weather. There's probably something wrong with me.

Eh... According to the Köppen climate classification (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Humid_subtropical_climate) the only temperate region of Australia is humid subtropical.

What?  That's ridiculous.  Most of Australia is arid.  We have a variety of different climate types, remembering that Australia is a continent, as well as a country.  Our climates vary from hot humid tropical in the north to humid subtropical, mainly down the eastern seaboard of Queensland and northern New South Wales, to temperate in the southern mainland (like Melbourne where I live) and Tasmania is also temperate but on the colder side.  The great majority of the interior of the continent is arid country where certainly temperatures can rise enormously during summer, but overnight temperatures can drop below zero Celsius (32 Fahrenheit).  We have large areas of montane climate like where my cousin lives up in the "high country" of the Snowy Mountains where summer temperatures tend to be much milder than in a lot of other places and snow in winter is common.  Indeed, during the winter the snow on the ground in the Australian Alps covers much more area than the actual Alps in Europe.  Remember we Australians are a jocular lot and we like nothing better than to "spin a yarn" about the perils of life in our country particularly for foreign visitors and Internet acquaintances.  We also like to exaggerate our tolerance for things like extreme heat, and nothing does that better than talking up the occasions when it does get hot.  What we really do is turn on the air-con or go to the beach, remembering that the overwhelming majority of Aussies live within an hour's drive of the beach.  So for example if it gets too hot in my home town, I can simply drive down the Mornington Peninsula or up one of the nearby hills/mountains both of which are where the temperature can be up to 10-15°C cooler.

edit: BTW, Melbourne where I live tends to be very dry during the summer so the same temperature is a lot more bearable than in high humidity places.  My favourite season here, though is autumn, when we tend to get clear warm sunny days and cool, but not cold nights.  Fabulous for camping!

Ha ha!  I think anything from 25 to 30°C is very pleasant.  Above 30 it's beginning to get a bit warm, once it gets to 40°C it bloody hot.  OTOH, below 15°C and it's definitely a bit chilly, sub 10°C temperatures are ridiculous and should be banned!

Is DIY auto ac work allowed in Europe? You can't accept payment here without an EPA 609 certificate but can do your own work. Some of the newer refrigerant is difficult to source though and if you have an R12 system you might as well do a retrofit. But it's legal.

Is DIY auto ac work allowed in Europe? You can't accept payment here without an EPA 609 certificate but can do your own work. Some of the newer refrigerant is difficult to source though and if you have an R12 system you might as well do a retrofit. But it's legal.

God is doing something very similar here.
The entire state of NSW is now in drought.

As to how not to get sick:
I theorise that humans carry bugs humans are susceptible to.
Spray approaching humans with strong smelling disinfectant.
The spray may not kill all bugs but it deters 99.95% of humans.

*Long sigh*

Well, a couple of days ago we were projected to have an actual winter storm. Our first since early 2011. But then it fell apart, taking more a southerly track. Yesterday we were downgraded to a winter weather advisory and then today even that was cancelled as absolutely nothing happened. Not even a single snowflake.

Eastern Oklahoma must have a curse put on it. This is just so sad. Getting more than 2 inches in a snowstorm used to be an annual thing. Getting 6+ inches used to be an annual thing. Now we get dustings and that's it. We couldn't even get that this time, though. Jesus.

Actually, it was the same here. The meteorologist I watched made it very clear that everyday that there was a model where we could get nothing or close to nothing. But it was on the lowest end of the extremes whereas the one on the other end was on the extreme of 14 something inches.

He took a reasonable position at the time and predicted in between, but more on the lower side, and when the system came on-shore he and everyone else really backed away. Yet people where I live are so mad at him in particular. Christmas parades were cancelled two days in advance of the storm even coming, and people rushed to the stores and they're blaming that meteorologist in particular. There's even a meme about it.

God, people are stupid. Like why did the Christmas parade even need to be cancelled two days in advance? Why couldn't they have waited until the meteorologists were more certain with what was going to happen? It's not like they all weren't saying "Things could change" the whole time, but everyone took those early predictions as the gospel truth and it's their own darn fault, not the meteorologist.

There *is* an actual bad weather news service for where I live. It's one that runs online (as far as I know) and has a Facebook. Every single time there is a storm anywhere near they go for the highest extreme model and talk like it's going to happen. I have a friend on FB who always shares them and I can't for the life of me understand why. He's lived in this miserable state the same last seven years I have and should darn well know that site never shares accurate model data ever. They're the ones that people should be frustrated with, but no one cares and just keeps on sharing them anyway.

Sheeeeeeit!  We are having to endure a miserable damn yankee style cold front here in sunny Florida.  My temps have dropped to as low as 35 F during the night.  The temps are varying all over the place from day to day.  Meanwhile I am not planning to mow my lawn while it is so unpleasantly chilly.

I should not complain so much because I have some compassion for my honorary grandson who lives in Kaunas Lithuania.  He lives in an apartment complex that lost its power for three days while the ambient temps were in the mid to high twenties.  He survived  but his diesel Kia car is putting up a lot of opposition to normal operation.  He is having to walk three miles to work....in the snow, because the transit busses are not running.

It's been bloody hot the last few days and more to come.  Glad I don't live in Tarcoola in South Australia, they had 49°C (120°F) yesterday and it's predicted to get there again today.  Sheesh!

Yikes.  I guess that's a preview of my summer.  Last year it got up to 113F three times, and I'm near the ocean!  In August it got up to 127F in Death Valley, with an average of 108F all summer long.  It's turning me into a compulsive temperature watcher.

My friend in Lithuania drives a three cylinder Kia diesel that is surviving nicely in near zero temps that are the norm for such God forsaken places. ....OK JJ the Kia has glow plugs.

We are presently having a polar circulation that has found its' way into the US.  That happens infrequently but it is busting our chops this season.  Places in the Dakotas are seeing temps in the way below minus zero regions.  Who the hell would live in such places?      The Dakotans and Minnesotans seem to take it in stride.

I talked to a fellow from West Virginia about cold starts on diesels once. He said, "It's easy. We just light a big ol' fire underneath em."

I thought he was kidding until I looked at some equipment that was coming up for auction from West Virginia. The frame under the oil pan of damn near every tractor had thick black soot from having fires lit underneath. It's quite ingenious really.
Title: Re: Should we talk about the weather?
Post by: Icarus on January 29, 2019, 11:50:50 PM
Building a fire under the crankcase is one way to do it but a much neater (and safer) way is to use electric block heaters.   I do believe that they have electricity in WV.

I am amused that my Lithuanian friend has discovered that he can use a cardboard panel to obstruct part of his radiator when the  weather is bitchin' cold.   He thought that it was  only a scheme that the Lithuanians had devised out of desperation.  Ha! I have even done that with my motorcycle.

Meanwhile the weather in Vilnius is at or near 30 degrees while the temps in Chicago, Milwaukee, Minneapolis are sub zero and worse. A lot worse.

I'd like to have one of the coolant transfer pumps handy. You use a running truck to exchange cold coolant from a piece of equipment to warm it up. Block heaters are nice, if electricity is readily accessible. You gotta drive the truck to whatever you're working on though.

You know it's cold in Minneapolis when we actually close schools and workplaces (like we're doing tomorrow). We Minneapolitans never close stuff because of the cold. Almost makes me miss Texas winters.

29 freaking degrees F this morning! My wife doesn't like to run the heater at night, so it was 58F in the warmest part of the house. I'm going to program the heater for a low of 62. It isn't good for the furnace to run long enough to pull the house up by 11 degrees. It actually got hot enough to shut itself off before the house made it to 69 degrees.

Habitable?! Pfft...scientists...what do they know? ::)

Last night we went to watch Avengers Endgame and when we left the theater it was raining lightly outside. Ok, no problem we thought, it's just a heavy drizzle. We got in the car and proceeded to leave the shopping mall complex. En route to home it looked like the freaking apocalypse had happened while we were indoors watching the movie. It had rained so much that multiple points had flooded, and stationary cars and buses were stuck in the water. One bus had water up to half its height and people were filming and taking pictures of that bizarre scene. Other people were parked in petrol stations waiting for the water to recede, and traffic lights were out so everything was chaos. 

So I flipped out my phone and opened Waze, "a free social mobile app that enables drivers to build and use live maps, real-time traffic updates and turn-by-turn navigation for an optimal drive."

Commercial break

Waze (https://www.waze.com/download) tells you instantly about traffic, construction, police, crashes, & more - even if you know the way. Join other drivers in your area who share real-time traffic and road info, saving everyone time and gas money.

That Waze app really helped us get home again, didn't it?

It sure did, Purple. Without it we would probably be stranded in a lake somewhere. I am very grateful to Waze for helping me find my way!

It is fuc#ing snowing again :(. A few days ago it was summer (24 degrees) and now it is winter again (2 degrees).

The climate has become so strange.

I don't disagree but how much of the perceived strangeness is confirmation bias?

:notsure:

What is your estimation?  :P

I love confirmation bias.
My work moved Novemberish last year.
So I travel a 7km section of road with a narrow bridge towards the end.
The only time I pass a large truck on that road is on that narrow bridge.
I love confirmation bias.

I think weather always was strange, it's probably stranger now, could be a smidge or a tad stranger, I can't be sure.

Yeah, people, in general, don't have a very intuitive grasp of statistical big pictures. Will probably have to look at meteorological records for a time span way surpassing my age to say with a degree of confirmation bias-free certainty that the trend is climate is getting stranger.   :-[

We're under an extreme heat warning. Have been for nearly a week and will be until next Wednesday. A restaurant next door to us lost their kitchen air conditioning last week and put off fixing it. This heat wave and the added load on their dining room killed those air conditioners too. They were shut down yesterday and have to wait for COMPLETE SYSTEM REPLACEMENT before they can open again.

120.

If Highway is the equivalent of Motorway, then it’s the A1M which operates under the national speed limit of 70 mph, around 115 kph. Our roads through towns often don’t have the limit displayed; you just know when you see lamp posts that it’s 30 mph or 50 kph. I can know some of the conversions from driving in Australia.

The wind is blowing so hard here, with gusts in the 70 MPH range that people's trash bins are blowing down the street...along with the trash.  :( The local power company had said that the power would be cut during high wind events, after the disastrous fires and subsequent flooding due to loss of watershed here in southern California. I live in an area where the utilities are underground, but are still fed from the grid by (of course) high tension (>400kV) power lines. The risk is that the power company will be again blamed for fires that devastate entire cities and cause untold (no, really- just look up the the news (old) about the fire in Ventura County that completely destroyed the city of Paradise, CA) levels of destruction. The power to some areas may be cut for several days in some areas. All of the local retailers are sold out of emergency generators! I'm OK so far, and I bought my own generator years ago. We'll see how it all plays out. The weather has just gotten mild, and we can leave the windows open for fresh air...right up until some pyro started a fire a few miles away.  >:( Looks like it has been knocked down, though.

Let us remember the umbrella that has gone from us forever, and let us give thanks for the many days of protection it has provided its owner.

Rest in the trash bin. Amen.

A real winter-like (by the standards of where I live) cold front came through a couple of days ago. It even sleeted, with some snow further to the east. The temperature was still like 60 when I woke up in the morning, but by the evening it was in the low 20s. And the lows got into the mid teens last night. Today it barely got above freezing.

I've never seen it that cold in early November. Of course, where I live winters are very limited with only a select number of cold fronts each winter. I'm worried this counts as one of those, thus when winter actually comes they'll all be used up... And of course, no winter precipitation we've seen so far has been anywhere near significant in of itself.

I may sound like I'm predicting out of thin air here, but I've seen how winters turn out now and I could likely be quoted at the end of winter and my predictions were true. God I hope not, though. I want a real winter storm for the first time in forever.

BR that's a dead ringer for my little Ajay. It might even be one of the 18CS models 'cause it looks like it might have alloy barrel and heads.  The standard models were cast iron.  The CS designation was "Competition Special". It was the first Brit swing arm scoot to arrive on these shores. The Triumphs of the era had the Spring hub layout and all the Harleys were rigid frames until the new sportster came out in about 1954. 

You have a Beezer too?  I have a friend who has a whole platoon of bikes that include a Victor. He also has a Commando, a triumph TT. Honda Hawk, and a mess of other miscellaneous bikes.  There is also a  Suzy DR350 that I have breathed on rather extensively with head work, cam, induction tract mods, and more.  He never rode the thing. Jack is 75, in poor health, and I fear that I will have to dispose of that collection one of these days. I am his executor. 

Were it not for all those soccer moms, driving giant SUVs and not paying attention,  I would adopt the triumph.  But alas I ain't gettin' on the street with a bike anymore.  Dear lord I really want to. Last bike I had was a sweet little Honda XR100. It was more fun than a barrel of monkeys.  That was the bike that Kenny Roberts used to train road racer type students.

And no I don't know why we are doing motorcycles on the weather thread.  Should be in the petrol section.

Another apology to the weather thread..................

BR when I was young. and newly married wy wife, a decent rider,  and I wanted to ride from Groton Connecticut to Three Rivers Quebec for a closed circuit road race the Canadians were doing.  We did ride all the way up there on our two Triumph Tiger Cubs.   Miraculously we made it all the way back home without the develish clutch failures that the Cubs were famous for.  The ignition systems were of questionable reliability too. 

While camping out in Vermont, at night we were also accosted by bears.  A good time was had by all. The Cubs were distinctly faster than the bears. 
Title: Re: Should we talk about the weather?
Post by: billy rubin on November 15, 2019, 07:22:05 PM
cubs!

i wanted one for my kids. got the ill-conceived starfire instead, as cubs are thin on the ground. although a man in the next town south of here has one on a lift in his front window. but it's been on that lift for at least the last five years.

riding a cub for that distance is like crossing the atlantic in a rowboat, though.  wasn't the plain bearing on the crank a source of angst to cub owners?
Title: Re: Should we talk about the weather?
Post by: Icarus on November 16, 2019, 01:19:53 AM
No problem with the main bearings.  In fact I rode the Cub quite successfully for a lot of hare scrambles.  The Cub turned out to be a most appropriate scooter for trials events.  I became the Florida state champ at trials with the Cub. I did well in New England trials too.   The deal was that the light weight allowed me to do an almost stoppie and kick the rear end around so to make a difficult acute turn on the trials course.   

The scrambles at that time all used Le Mans type starts.  After converting it to battery ignition it would start with merely a hard look at  the starter lever. I got a lot of hole shots.

That little bike would be laughed out of town when compared to a modern trials bike such as the Gas-Gas or similar purpose built machine. Also laughed at when compared to a modern Moto bike.  It was a good little machine at that time in the dark ages.

While I am at it....I beseech you to take up trials riding and abandon the LSR lunacy.  If you fall off the trials bike you might break a bone or get some bruises.  If you fall of the LSR bike your children run a serious risk of becomimg fatherless.  I am waxing philosophical here. Skill and finesse is equal or superior to balls to the wall macho stuff, no matter what your buddies say.

 I think that I have unintentionally derailed this thread big time. You are also culpable BR.  My apologies to the atmospheric interests.

I hate the heat, and the winter is the only real respite from the heat where I live. Plus, when it gets chilly (which is very off and on where I live during the winter) I just put on layers and I'm fine. Sure the cold doesn't feel good either, but all of the bad things that are associated with warmer/hot weather (tornadoes, bugs, etc.) make the cold paradise.

I've lived in Oklahoma my entire life and I couldn't care less about the skyscapes. I care about living through each Spring. This previous May we had a constant barrage of tornadic storms. It was nearly every single day and night. Tornado sirens were blaring all of the time. The emergency broadcast sound on my phone now sends me into disarray because every single time it happened in May we had to take cover (which we got tornado warnings even when the meteorologists said the storms wouldn't be bad, so it could happen at any time). This is so much so that even at my workplace one day it was raining and the emergency broadcasts went off on everyone's phones and we were all freaking out even though it was a flash flood warning instead.

I don't even want to think about this. It is December. The weather is peaceful. Even if we don't get winters anymore it is still far better than the hell that is "Spring".

5he southeast is eastern deciduous woodland wi5h 56 inches of rain, whil3 the northwest is high plains with 18 inches. alligators in the southeast versus pronghorn antelope in the northwest

its the easternmost border for western animals like the kangaroo ratsz, and the wester n border for eastern animals like the p8leated woodpecker.

That's not how I think of Oklahoma. Lol.

When I think of the various regions of Oklahoma I think of this:

Western Oklahoma: Arid, more desert-like. Extremely wild temperature swings during the Winter. The only portion of the state that gets Winter Storms anymore. It is the only area of Oklahoma that I think is worth going out to see, but then again there are similar ecosystems in other, better states. While it's nice they get winter storms, it also gets waayyyy too darn hot in the winter on a regular basis. I've seen the area go from 90 degrees one day to an ice storm the next.

Central Oklahoma: This is the most unlivable portion of the state. It is a bullseye for tornadoes, and the really big ones. I can not understand why Moore is not an abandoned town at this point.

Eastern Oklahoma: You get some pretty wild temperature swings during the winter, you get some tornadic storms in the Spring. But the area has, as I've reported here over the last many years, become allergic to winter storms. I've seen them go literally everywhere around - Western Oklahoma, Northern Texas, Western Arkansas, Southwest Missouri, Southern Kansas. But never Eastern Oklahoma anymore. It's like climatically we keep on getting shifted further Southeast.

my family lived about 30 miles south of moore for nearly 100 years, across the south canadian in the chickasaw nation. i've seen moore hit several times.

had a friend living in wichita falls back in 1979, just across the river from oklahoma. she was in a shopping center when the spotters ran in and told everyone to get down. no better warnings back then.

so she lay down on top of her two-year-old while the shopping center was torn up. when it was over she went outside to go home and her car was gone.

so she took a cab home and her apartment was gone, too.

found a picture of it

Last night was horrible. I woke up multiple times because of the heavy, hot air carrying a heat that wouldn't subside even with the window open. I have to get the AC cleaned before I can turn it on and don't have a ceiling fan in my room. I guess I'd better add, 'buy a table fan' to the to do list today...

It's been a while since I've had such a bad night.

Outsider dumb question. Why does anybody live in 'Tornado Ally'?

Same reason people live where earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, and crime occur - statistically, it probably won’t happen to you, and the benefits outweigh the risks.  I’ve lived in central Texas all my life and have never been in a tornado.

A Tornado Warning in late December, you all. I knew a severe thunderstorm was coming, but then within seconds "Tornado Warning" popped up on my phone and I was like "Are you flipping kidding me?" The sirens started going off and then they broke in on the TV about it... And guess what it said when they broke in on the TV? "Winter Weather Update". Winter storms are so extinct around here that now we consider tornado warnings "Winter weather". Lovely.

I'm so done. Just so done. I can't do this anymore. Someone please save me and move me to New England or Canada, or somewhere else decent already.

I don't consider California to be much more bearable. California is a beautiful place to vacation to, but I could never live there. I would be so depressed as having four seasons is one thing that is important to me. Also, absolutely no to earthquakes. There's a reason I've chosen New England - Minimal earthquakes, severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, and despite being close to the coast, not too high of a chance of hurricanes either.

Hail to Winter Storm Kade for giving me my first winter storm and decent snow in an eternity. Still not a major snow, TBH, but the average snowfall total has fallen to a trace post-2011, so that makes it very noteworthy.

lots warmer here as well.

when i got to ohio 17 years ago, january generally stayed under 32F, with no thaw until february. there were bad bits where the temperature stayed around -15 F for several weeks at a time, and the road to town was sometimes under three feet of snow.

this winter it's been absolutely warm, with spells in the middle 60s as recently as a week ago.

i have no complaints. cold weather is for people who can go inside and get warm. my house stays around 50 F when its seriously cold outside, sometimes worse than that.

we seem to be losing the thunderstorms as well. ohio used to be famous for them, but they're nothing like they were even 15 years ago anymore.

Hot topics include:

"If I drink warm tea will it kill the virus?"

"Are you sure children aren't immune?"

"I coughed once yesterday. Where's the nearest hospital?"

"Can I get the virus by talking to people on the internet?"

Small talk has been fun fun fun!

It's mid-April here in Michigan, and we've been experiencing some nice, warm sunny early spring days (Although we have gotten a ton of rain lately as well)

So of course yesterday if fucking snowed.

Not a ton of snow.

It didn't stick to the pavement at all, and was melted by late afternoon, but still it fucking snowed.

Snow shouldn't be allowed during springtime pandemics.

I'm mostly pissed about the snow because it totally fucked up our Silver Magnolia Tree's Blossoming this year.

Flowers on the tree were just about to open, today it should have been in full bloom, but the snow (And 30 degree weather) just fucked it all up.

Snow that was on the grass melted by the time I took this picture, but you can still see some on top of the bush.

(https://i.imgur.com/NBybver.jpg)

Snow covered flower petals.
(https://i.imgur.com/JV1OVZ9.jpg)

How the flowers look today, all brown and dingy, and they won't fill out completely now.
(https://i.imgur.com/sqhlOog.jpg)

This is how it should look, this is a picture I took last year. In fact by the time all of the petals fall my entire lawn looks like it's covered in pink snow. Many of my neighbors will take pictures of themselves in front of the tree when it's in full bloom, and their kids love to play and run through the flower petals.
(https://i.imgur.com/5sSur8K.jpg?1)

Fucking snow.

Whole year is now fucking shot to hell...fuck.

Not long after I posted my gripping account of this travesty I received a text message from a neighbor who lives across the street from me about the tree, he remarked how bummed out he and his wife were as they can see the tree from their kitchen window, so they really enjoy the view when eating at their table every day.

It snowed all day here today, I mean literally for hours on end...Thank a god or goddess the frost has already been coming out of the ground so it didn't stick, and has mostly melted. I think if we had gotten this two weeks ago when it was colder we would have got close to 6-8 inches at least.

Enough already with the snow, I want sunshine and hot weather. (I think I'm feeling this way as I should have just returned from a nine day vacation in Honduras...instead I'm stuck here with the snow)

Plus, today is our trash pickup. I heard the garbage truck coming down the street, and I remembered I had some additional trash I wanted to take out, so I threw on some crocs, grabbed the trash, and ran outside to the street to toss it into the receptacle.

Of course I slipped, and fell onto to my ass right in the street, and of course it was in view of the driver of the garbage truck who gave me a jolly wave and grin as I sheepishly got up from the cold, wet cement.

I waved, and grinned back at him as I slowly made my way to my front door.

By the way a friend of mine gave me the crocs at Christmas as a gift, because I was always making fun of him when he wore his crocs...have to say they come in handy around the house.(I would never, ever wear them out though, just saying...I'm not like that)

So Friday it snowed all day. Yesterday I woke up early to head out to the market, and there was still snow on the windshield of my car, by early afternoon I was taking a walk with my son, the temp was almost 60F, and we were only wearing t-shirts and hoodies.

Sun was out most of the day. Such weird weather. Currently it is 53F, with another expected high today of 60F.

We had an extra-tropical cyclone yesterday with winds speeds ranging from 80 to 120 km/h, depending on the region. They were calling it ciclone bomba (yes, that means exactly what you're thinking it means). Not the most fearsome of windy monsters but we're not used to having to deal with them so they wreak havoc. At least 8 dead. Thousands of fallen trees, loads of destroyed property and entire areas of evacuated houses in the hardest-hit regions.

Just one more 'check' in the end-of-the-world checklist.

Coronavirus plague. Check.
A cloud of ravenous grasshoppers. Half check. They're in Argentina on their way to Brazil.
The Anti-christ has risen (Bolsonaro). Check.

hot is always relative. really its only about 90 F, which isnt really hot. but theres bright sun, no wind, and 75 percent humidity, so shedding heat from the human body is harder.

in arizona i recall 106 to 110 F was easily managed in the low humidity if you stayed out of the sun. in california i routinely finished my workday returning to town where the thermometers all read 115 F.

thats really hot. really hotter was 119F working in the colorado river indian reservation in chezt waders and 100 percent humidity. didnt do much of that

This is a replay of Rita in 2005.  This will continue to happen because of climate change and eventually will overwhelm our capacity to respond.  Of course, Trump says it’s a hoax, but he is an idiot.  So, our  future is in the hands of an idiot.

We are in the monsoon season here in central Florida.  It rains every day, sometimes for hours on end.  That makes my grass grow happily but it causes me to have to mow the grass every five days. Also makes my roof leak, which is a problem that i am currently addressing. It is going to use up about 14K dollars to replace the tired, 16 year old, roof.   The deal is that If I do it now, the Hurricane season is upon us.  If a stage two or more Hurricane passes over me, which it might,  my new roof may be toast.

Meanwhile Mags, Books, and their neighboring areas need the rain desperately.  Is half of our left coast afire?  I feel for the people out there and would cheerfully share some of my rain with them if I could.

We still have the Indian Summer coming up. I know it's politically incorrect but that's what we've always called it in the fall. It's about a three day warm spell that comes up and then temperatures begin really drop afterwards. Maybe the name has been changed to Native American Summer.

I never knew the term Indian Summer (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-15127159) originated in the US. I thought is was a colonial reference to the country of India.

 
Title: Re: Should we talk about the weather?
Post by: Randy on September 25, 2020, 03:48:48 PM
I don't know what the origin of the phrase is. I guess I can look it up.

Here it is:
Quote
Etymology and usage

Late-19th-century Boston lexicographer Albert Matthews made an exhaustive search of early American literature in an attempt to discover who coined the expression. The earliest reference he found dated from 1851. He also found the phrase in a letter written in England in 1778, but discounted that as a coincidental use of the phrase.

Later research showed that the earliest known reference to Indian summer in its current sense occurs in an essay written in the United States circa 1778 by J. Hector St. John de Crevecoeur. The letter was first published in French. The essay remained unavailable in the United States until the 1920s.

Although the exact origins of the term are uncertain, it was perhaps so-called because it was first noted in regions inhabited by American Indians, or because the Indians first described it to Europeans, or it had been based on the warm and hazy conditions in autumn when American Indians hunted. In addition to such conjectures, a great depth of Native American folklore is attributed to describing this phenomenon.[citation needed]

In literature and history, the term is sometimes used metaphorically. The title of Van Wyck Brooks' New England: Indian Summer (1940) suggests an era of inconsistency, infertility, and depleted capabilities, a period of seemingly robust strength that is only an imitation of an earlier season of actual strength. William Dean Howells' 1886 novel Indian Summer uses the term to mean a time when one may recover some of the happiness of youth. The main character, jilted as a young man, leads a solitary life until he rediscovers romance in early middle age.

In British English, the term is used in the same way as in North America. In the UK, observers knew of the American usage from the mid-19th century onwards, and The Indian Summer of a Forsyte is the metaphorical title of the 1918 second volume of The Forsyte Saga by John Galsworthy. However, early 20th-century climatologists Gordon Manley and Hubert Lamb used it only when referring to the American phenomenon, and the expression did not gain wide currency in Great Britain until the 1950s. In former times such a period was associated with the autumn feast days of St. Martin and Saint Luke.

In the English translation of Boris Pasternak's Doctor Zhivago, the term is used to describe the unseasonably warm weather leading up to the Great October Socialist Revolution.

Indian summer . . .

that's an odd cultural juxtaposition.

i remember reading a copy of steinbeck's grapes of wrath when i was a kid that had been edited for british readers. there was no "gas," the joads filled their truck with "petrol . . ." which is fine but not how okies talk.

other cultural "corrections" throughout. made for odd reading, to a native american speaker

We had wonderful weather. 21 degrees Celsius. Spent the day with my wife in the Odenwald Thermen (thermal baths) and got sunburned.

65F with rain here. The temperature isn't supposed to change. On the other hand it is quite warm in here, slightly uncomfortable.
