Hell, send that heat up here. 

It's been an abyssmal spring around here.  We had frost until the last week in May.  We're supposed to be in a drought, but it's been raining every other day.  We had 3" of rain on Friday and we're at 1" already today.  The month of May was 10 degrees Fahrenheit COLDER than normal for pity's sake (4 C for those of you following along in metric).  The forecast low for tonight, in the rain, is 42 F.  Blech.  Gimme the heat anyday.

All hell has broken loose here with flooding. The downtown areas are being evacuated, businesses are closed. I didn't have to go to work today because of the flooding and the fact that the road going to work is underwater. US Highway 218 is closed, since water is running over that.

I just got done at a sandbagging effort. I'd been there since 7 AM this morning, and I'll probably be there tomorrow or later tonight again.

It's about 80 degrees here and sunny, but more rain/storms are on the way.

I've been watching the reports in that area as my grandparents and aunt live in Independence. The Wapsi river is at about 20' in their area but is expected to hit 24'. Reports indicate that this will be worse than the '99 floods.

The weather up here has been awesome, Friday it got up to 28C & it was a slight breezy so it was nice. Yesterday we hit around the same & today 31C & tomorrow 30C. The rest of the week, 25C-29C. It's about 11:15 pm here & it's 26C.

Yeah, she's warm in the house but it will cool down with the central air conditioner.

Yesterday it only got up to about 93-95*...all in all, not too bad.  Today it's going to get closer to 100 and by next week we could end up with 5 straight days of it.  Pretty much just hot Texas summer here lately.  Been this way for a while and no signs of it slowing down.

Well it gets closer to the "S" word. The last few days have been pretty windy around here but today is the worst. A wind warning is in effect with winds gusting up to 60 to 90 km/h. Nothing but broken trees, branches & leaves flying all over the place not to mention garbage making it travels. When the sun is out it's not too bad 3C but when it clouds over... snow beads. Yep, it has arrived.  >:(

Beautifully San Diego weather at a nice 76f  and if we could now stop the freaking wild fires around here it would be heaven.The Marine base was on fire a week ago and a canyon and freeway off ramp down the street from my house a couple of days ago. the Santa Ana's have just started too.

Isn't that normal fall weather for SoCal?  Warm and smoky?

 Yes that been the norm for the last few years. no water and very dry, if you fart out in the mountains you'll cause a wild fire.to top it off we had to rent a water dropping helicopter from Canada just for the dry season. isn't it allways snowing in Canada...

We've gotten snow and sleet the last couple days.  It's cold here now...  Winter's definitely on the way.  It's gonna bump back up into the 60's by Friday or Saturday I hear though, so that's just gonna be hell on the joints.

Okay there, Old Man River.  Its been dark and cloudy around MN lately...I don't mind the cold so much, but the gray skies have me feeling blah of late.
