Long and miserable is being kind to this past winter. I finally let my stove go out about the 3rd week of April. I am quite a bit south of you here in NW Ohio.

Tuesday evening last week I had my last fire of the season in the kitchen stove. By Sunday we were having temperatures near 100. That's life on the Great Plains. :-)

It still feels like the end of March, here on Long Island. Today, we had a cold, pinprick drizzle that lasted all day and well into the night. Everything feels soggy and clammy.

I wonder how long our economy will be able to absorb all the weather damage and floods before it really starts to hinder everybody's lifestyle, and not just those directly affected?

I just saw an old tsunami map for this area, and there will be flooding on three sides of Gene's house and my house. We're at 25 feet ASL.

Some folks here in the Northwest complain about all the rain we have (broke several records this year) but I always remind them that our weather doesn't kill people.

Still... Spring will be here next week! (according to our often wrong weather guesser)

Here in the Califunny Sierras, we have about 2% of normal snowpack and where I live, about 66% normal rainfall. 80's and 90's predicted for next 2 weeks. Probably will be rationing water this summer. Feast or famine everywhere.

John,

Ever wonder how a person most always wrong can keep their job? I wonder if any of our so called prognosticators ever keep their accuracy percentages? I listen to their forecasts and expect the exact opposite and that usually works.

With all the millions the gvt spends on new fangled do dads to forecast the weather, it seems the Farmers Almanac, is far more accurate. Take for instance the almanac forecast the coldest winter n 100 years in the east and they were spot on. The National weather service missed it by a landslide.

just sayi'

Brass car guy : I love it when the hurricane centre predicts a disastrous season and then has to modify the predictions 1/3 the way through the season......

Maybe the poles have shifted. Here in California, we have been having fall weather this spring. It has been hot and windy, with the wind coming from the northeast. Usually this time of year the wind blows in from the ocean and it is cloudy and sometimes we get showers. We are expecting some 90 degree weather next week. Even during the winter this year we have only used a fire for about 2 weeks off and on with warm dry periods in January, but some rain in February.

So I am thinking the east is farther to the north pole and the west is toward the equator?

Seems that way anyhow.

Yes I have often wondered the same thing.

I also realized I was wrong about our weather. How could I have forgotten the recent Oso mudslide? Our weather does kill people.

I've had fires in the woodstove here in northern WI for the last few days. Nothing better than a good fire in the stove to dry the place out and get rid of that damp, moldy feeling from months of rotten weather. Nothing warms you to the bones like a blazing woodstove.
