Rain today.

Rain tomorrow.

Rain the day after.

Rain the day after that.

Oh cheer up. It could be worse. It could be raining.

Where I am, I mean.

...I should have kept my big mouth shut.

This area rarely does rain, but it has been cold and windy the last couple days. Half a propane tank lasted over a week, the next quarter lasted two days, and the last quarter about 24 hours.

 

Aside: on the thread list, this thread shows up as a red blob loosely resembling a censor block, followed by "The weather".

It is tagged with 'Weather', just in case people didn't realise what the thread was about. :danshiftyeyes:

No, I don't get it, either. :icon_eek:

It's also tagged with Invading France.

For the Weather, of course.

G1 Watch for 14 and 15 March, 2018 UTC Days

published: Monday, March 12, 2018 19:20 UTC

A G1 (Minor) geomagnetic storm watch is now in effect for the 14 and 15 March, 2018 UTC-days. The arrival of a co-rotating interaction region (CIR), followed by a recurrent, negative polarity coronal hole high speed stream (CH HSS) is expected to cause the escalated geomagnetic responses. Keep checking our SWPC webpage for the latest forecasts, warnings, and alerts.

Please tell me that you are keeping a careful eye on Gomer Pyle. If he steers the hovercraft into the negative polarity they will need to build additional pylons again, all just so he can escape through a crack in the event horizon.

Having a thunderstorm right now.   Susan, the cat, is not impressed.

I can totally see Susan the character and Susan the cat having equal looks of scorn and disdain.

 And it's raining. And it's Monday.

Lucky you.  It's been snowing pretty much all day here.  Sometimes big fluffy flakes, sometimes tiny little icy specks, almost always blown by too strong and cold a wind.  I think it's finally stopped, leaving our cars in need of scraping and brushing off yet again.

Isn't it the second half of April?

I can't complain, though, because whenever someone else has complained, "What happened to spring??" my reply has been, "This is spring!"

And in Chicago it's 31 F. 51 F here in San Jose. And it's still January in Moperville, at night, and why isn't there any snow anywhere?! It all melted since New Year's Eve?!

I remember we once had a late April blizzard in Denmark. Not the worst ever but it was pretty impressive. Just two days later the temperative jumped overnight to low 50s and the whole mess melted. Getting to work during that was... interesting. O.O

On Thursday we planned to go from Pocatello to Butte, spend Friday there, and finish the trip on Saturday.

A few miles across the Montana state line we were in a snowstorm. Drove through it. It got thinner a few times, finally we got out of it... and then started into another one just before we got to Dillon. So we decided to call it quits there. By the time we went to bed Dillon had 5 inches of snow on the ground. (We heard that Bozeman got two feet.)

The weather forecasts said Friday would be the best day for nearly a week to get out of Dillon... and said the same thing, only maybe more so, about Butte. So on Friday we made a slightly-longer-than-usual drive to our usual summer area an hour from Missoula. Fortunately, once we got onto the main streets of Dillon every road we cared about was clear.

And this after I made my lady wait a week longer than she wanted to, in order to avoid bad weather.

Yeah, that about sums it up.  One good warm spell can melt a lot of snow, except for the mountains pushed up in the bigger parking lots.  Even when the temperature stays frigid, snow eventually sublimates into the super-dry air.  We probably spend more time in winter with bare ground than we do with snow.
