OK.. New thread

South Texas is having spring-almost-summer weather. High 80Fs and breezy. Showers in the afternoon.

I have some kind of vine growing on a wrought iron structure. It is doing fine, and is showing off its ONE flower again. Now, I appreciate ONE flower, but how come after 3 years it isnt covered with purple blooms?

Quite pleasant really

Snow again! Started ~2.5 hours ago. Maybe 3cm so far. Snow on asphalt roads melted for the first hour or two, but they're now snow-covered.

Yesterday was the first day in a while our yard was entirely snow-free. I don't expect this snow to last long.

Later: rain melted all the snow, then bright sun, then rain and wind which knocked out electric power. Power is now back.

Raining almost everyday here. It's giving me a good excuse not to go jogging.

Snow in April (no joke). Once again, the forecast was for snow only in the mountains. 100 meters elevation is not in the mountains!

After a last burst of summer on Thursday when it was 33C it seems that autumn has now arrived with much cooler days, think we have used the pool for the last time this season.

Daylight saving finishes here tonight so the days will seem shorter but it will be nice to not be getting up in the dark for a while.

I don't like to go out running if its already raining, but if it looks like rain I'll go and if it happens to start raining while I'm running - so what.

The problem is it hasn't rained here for a while.

Nowadays I go out running after work. So the sun is just setting, now its nearing winter so it's getting dark earlier. When I wasn't working I ran in the midday sun(crazy I know), I reckon if it snowed here I'd try running in that as well.

As long as its during the weekday, i don't mind. Those skies had better clear up before Saturday, though!

It's like watching a flock of clown-like apes trying to navigate a ship, even though the ship has in fact been stranded on some kind of reef for about 7 years and none of the apes have noticed it yet. -Drahnier on OD moderation.

Autumn's having a go at the weather today: cloudy, blustery, but...still dry.

Today it was obvious that Spring had arrived. Beautiful warm sunny day, quite perfect weather.

It's suddenly become very autumnal around these parts over the last week or so.
Edit: I just realised I said the same thing about a month ago
Just goes to show how one's perception of temperature changes.

And there are a lot of spiders around here too, Jayhawk

For weather-deprived San Diego, today is a watershed day. That's because today is the start of round two of water being shed all over us. It's raining and has been all day. It rained an inch from last Sunday through last Monday, and it's having a go at us again. Rain is predicted tomorrow and Sunday through early Monday.

This morning the US Weather Service confirmed what meteorologists have been suggesting for the last 6 months. A full-fledged El Nino condition has developed in the South Pacific. When this happens, the Northwest United States gets drier, the Central US gets wetter and snowier, and the Southeast gets colder, leading to unusual snowfall in places like Georgia and Florida.

The storms that hit the West Coast where I am tend to be heavy rain bearers and more violent during an El Nino. This is the kind of condition when water spouts (mild tornadoes) are sighted off the coast, come ashore and selectively remove roofs from structures in the business districts or off an occasional residence. Thunderstorms sometimes entertain us as well, the last one cooking a house about 3 miles from where I live and shaking the walls of my own rather violently at the time of the hit.

Worst of all, hillsides denuded of growth due to our increasingly frequent wildfires, have a tendency to lose their grip in rains like this and come mudsliding down attempting to take out houses like a bowling ball taking out pins. This is the one occasion in that game when getting "spared" is more deirable than getting "striked." Fortunately, I'm not at much risk of that, just the water spouts and the lightning strikes.

The surfers love it, however, because it generates the biggest waves on the local beaches surfers ever see. Unfortunately, as the waves recede they take the beach with them and the sand then has to be replenished in the spring for the summer tourists. The coastal restaurants with their fabulous view "right near the breakers" dining rooms don't love it, because usually the breakers live up to their name and break the glass windows, flood the dining room and in general wreak havoc with those structures built too close to the ocean. This disrupts revenue quite badly much to management's chagrin. So they make it up with artificially high meal prices ripped from the unsuspecting tourists in the summer who simply have to eat their meals with the ocean at their feet and are willing to pay the premium to do so.

I watched seawater during one such storm churn across the Pacific Coast Highway (US 101) picking up huge boulders placed for decoration on the seaside and dashing them against buildings across the road or depositing them in the restaurant parking lots in the place of the cars usually parked there. And this wasn't anything near a true hurricane.

Ain't paradise swell?

Winter arrived in South East England today.
Outside mid-day temperature was 1oC, later this afternoon there was a flurry of snow which didn't settle.

Similar conditions predicted for the rest of the week

I guess, I should have mentioned a ton of snow... Mostly gone now, though.
