We miss you. This evening, storms rolled through and I remembered how y’all would appear on the apartment porch, and we on the patio, afterward.
Mr. Big sent me an article yesterday with the subject line “the return of the primitive.” He should have said, “the return of the idiocy.” The article, Cool Your Home Without Air Conditioning, was originally published in Popular Science. It is very much like all other PS articles that I happen upon. Its tone is
6:29pm. In any case, Mr. Big Food asked a few minutes ago if we wanted to go outside and listen to some music. I said no. We really did not. I then reported these statistics to him and he responded that he would be watching a Reds baseball game on the TV set.
Heat index (HI) @10:23am is 94°. Mr. Big Food suggested that we call it a day outside. I feel like a wimp, but agreed. Turns out, some years back I spent three or four days thinking about the heat index and how it’s calculated. Here’s a tidbit. The HI was not even a thing until
It is 9:20am central time. It is 85°F. The heat index is 92°. Just letting you know. Wishing you all the best from Mississippi, Marica
it did not rain yesterday afternoon. Carry on.
I don’t think it’s going to rain here. The pressure is 1012hPa and rising. (48 hour low (1009) was yesterday at about 6pm.) We got 0.17″ rain over night. The wind speeds now are averaging 7mph with gusts up to 14. I’m not seeing how it gets here. I can promise you that if we
No. I’m not suggesting that you shell out hard earned cash money to get an Atlas. Completely unnecessary, unless, of course, you want to! For the sake of completeness, I’ll review the Atlas Personal Weather Station (PWS) at the end. I appreciate that not everyone needs to collect his or her own weather data when
I have never been to the equator, but I’m pretty sure that vehicle is not at a location on the equator. Take that back. A quick spin around the globe and I see there’s a desert in Kenya right about at the equator, but given the stickers are en Español… ? Let us hark back
It is Thursday ∴ It is stormy I have checked all of the boxes. Even remembered to turn the A/C down to cool the joint off ahead of a potential power loss. [drums fingers on desk] Guess I’ll go poke around the world wide web for a spell. TTYL UPDATE: No. On second thought I
When I posted about Radar Scope’s capabilities, I was completely uniformed. It can do vastly more than I knew at the time. This is a pretty long video but it’s a nice overview, and the last few minutes are of the guy actually chasing a tornado so you can skip those. He’s got five, I
I laughed out loud. I have a question and someone on the World Wide Web pointed me in the direction of Backwoods Solar. Poking around I discovered this map which aims to help you calculate how big your solar array needs to be. (Not the info I need but interesting.) Do a few calculations and
Please note that I wrote this May 1, 2019. The damage has been done in Texas and Oklahoma, though you wouldn’t know it if you looked at The Weather Channel or Wunderground— all they care about right now is India. I’ll see for myself 1b. WEATHER SITES AND APPS for your devises For all around
Worked for days on the post about Windy. Scheduled it to go live first thing today. Looked at it. Where the hell are the screen shots and discussion of clouds? From Windy’s Description of weather overlays: Clouds: Clouds and rain/snow accumulation in the last 3 hours. Please note that rain from convective clouds can not
If you pay attention, are redundant in ways you receive weather advisories, alerts, and warnings– and know the difference among them– and can find yourself on a map, you have begun to take serious responsibility for yourself. Yay! Advisory: Be aware Watch: Be prepared Warning: Take Action This may be all you need. You may
If you stand with your back to the wind, the pressure is low (and falling) in the direction of your left side, high to your right. (Applicable in the northern hemisphere; reversed in the southern; not applicable near the equator.) According to that infallible source: A version taught to Naval Cadets in WW2 is: “In
When the weather is good, I look at Twitter about twice a week to ensure I have not missed a critical outrage. Last evening was one such time. This cracked me up. See also:
Thursday evening’s videos showed clouds to the east– the rain we’d had an hour or so earlier. This photo is the beginning of a little squall line that blessed us with an evening shower. Years ago, I took up bird watching– even bought the National Audubon Society Field Guide. It told me that every year
For a bit more than one hour, electricity ceased to flow– as if by magic– from the holes in the walls. I almost said we were without power but that’s not true. I have ~400Wh sitting right over there! Honestly, I did not see it coming. My bad. I, of course, did have a flashlight
Rain started at 6:31am. 0.07″ so far today, 7.72″ for the month of April. It’s Thursday. Could someone please explain to me how Mother Nature knows what day of the week it is? Or why the weather in April is on a seven day cycle? Or how about this: Up to a tenth of an
