Driving home from work ,on 84 starts raining , big bolts of lightning come down. The next thing hail , about an inch , started coming down so fast that I was afraid my windows would crack. Also was wondering about tornadoes???Never ever experienced hail like that , it covered the road quickly. Really scary stuff.(Live in Putnam County, Ny)

This is near where I live in Shropshire, UK. But there are floods all over the country this week. A major bridge collapsed yesterday in a place called Ludlow in Shropshire and the house near it fell into the river this morning. Complete choas everywhere but we are lucky in that we have not really been affected by the floods where we live. Just as well as we dont have any house insure as we cannot afford it. Rain, rain and more rain - and it is cold too. Crazy mad weather.

Here in Texas, we are having an extremely wet year. There is flooding in much of the state, and at least 11 people have died as a result.

Here in Abilene, where the average yearly rainfall is between 23 and 24 inches, we have already received almost 19 inches in 2007. Locally, the ground is completely saturated, and any new rainfall floods the streets, making driving very dangerous. Our forecast for the next seven days is for more rain.

I posted on the Chemtrails thread about this.....

Here is West Texas, we had an extremely MILD and WET winter. And now, we are having an extremely MILD and WET Spring/Early Summer.

By this time last year, we had already had 19 days over 100 degrees, and 1 day of 105 degrees. So far this year, we have only had one day that I remember for sure of over 100; it was on the 18th of June, and I think the high was 101 that day.....might have been 102.

I didn't look up rainfall statistics, but it's been incredibly wet. There is rain in the forecast for the entire week, and the highest temp forecast during that time is for 91 degrees tomorrow.

I'm not complaining, though.....not by a longshot! I feel lucky compared to so many who are suffering from either flooding, or from horrible drought and/or fires.

I live in Putnam County, NY. It seems that we do not get gentle rains anymore, just torrential downpours. Really when it rains the it is like a curtain coming down.

We are really suffering here, thru smoke from forest fires and unusual heat. About 15 degrees hotter than usual, 100's. It stinks, literally. I am praying for wind and RAIN. None in the last month or so....

The western US will be in increaseing drought and water shortages over the next decade. It will get ugly, dust bowl conditions. Coupled with the Vegas-Phoniex population boom it excerbates an already bad condition.

We all will be affected in the coming years by shifts in global climate, but teh US west is by far the most at risk.

If it were me, I would begin making plans to get out of there.

It's hot were I live but that is normal for summer. It looks like we're in a drought though. All the grass is dying. Several of my drought resistant bushes are dying from lack of water. I've got an apple tree that is dying. The summer began wet. Then the rain stopped and it's so dry. That is unusual for this area. Normally it's hot and extremely humid. Humidity isn't a problem this summer. The dry weather hasn't affected the corn or soy bean crops at all and that's kind of strange. In fact I've never seen farmers plant so much corn so tightly packed together. It's growing like you wouldn't believe. I've never seen corn like this stuff.

Only if you wish to share, whereabouts do you live? Does the corn actually look different from standard corn?

Our weather has been just plain yucky for the last week or so. We have been setting records for high temps; heat indexes have been over 100 every day for the last week, and the air has been so thick you could cut it with a knife! I haven't seen smog this bad here (coastal southeatern NC) in the 35 years I have lived here. We haven't had any fires, but every now and then it smells like smoke; it sure looks like it. Maybe it is drifting in from out west where the fires are. We usually have afternoon thunderstorms that clear the air, but lately we have been getting a lot of rumbling but only spotty showers.

Illinois. Something is different about this corn. I can't really figure out what is different about it but something is. It looks the same as standard corn but something is different. Maybe I'm sensing something about the energy field of the plant or something about it's genes. I don't know. But my gut tells me that this corn is different than normal corn and it has really caught my attention in a major way. It doesn't feel right.

When the freak storm hit us yesterday morning, I was on duty near Windsor castle.

It seemed that one minute it was a mild, slightly dull morning and then WHOOSH!

The heavens really did open up and we had about 10 mins of absolutely torrential rain. Though I can't say that Windsor saw a tornado, the ferocity and suddeness of the cyclonic weather surprised all of us.

If such deluges are going to be more frequent over here then we're in trouble.

Brrrr, we seem to have gone into fall/winter all of a sudden. Highs have dropped a bit the last 3 weeks. Tomorrow the high is supposed to be in the 50's, lows in the upper 30's tonite... Glad I unpacked my cold weather clothes....

2-3 weeks ago, 90 degrees, setting a new record high. Within that same week, a 40 degree temperature drop. We have hot, humid summers and cold winters here in MI, although not anywhere near as cold as we did in the 70s through the early 80s. The Detroit River has not frozen over since 1982. Many times there is no spring or fall, no transition from summer to winter and back.

Now they are reporting that the tornado has touched down in downtown Vancouver, WA (just across the state border, several miles from Portland, OR).

Damage is being reported.

I haven't heard of any serious injuries, Bran—so that's a good thing, but there has been quite a bit of damage: ruined roofs, toppled chimneys, blown-over trees, downed signs and power-lines and telephone poles.

Being estimated initially as a "mere" F-0, this tornado could have been much, much worse.

Nope. The last big tornado in the Portland/Vancouver area was on April 5, 1972, when six people were killed. That tornado was an F-3.

In the wake of all the damage, and the photos of the larger-than-first-thought twister, today's tornado is expected to be "upgraded" to an F-2.

Hi, Bran... Yep. It has changed a lot since then, hasn't it?

I lived in Portland for eight years during the 1980's, and after work had me moving all over creation in the 1990's, I moved to the Puget Sound area of Washington State a couple of years ago.

Even though I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area—and spent most of my life there—I really missed the Pacific Northwest, rain and all. So now, I'm back.

It has been in the 70's every day this week. Feels like October or April. That is unusually warm for even here (south eastern NC). We have had the windows open all day and all night. Except for last night when we had a thunderstorm. Nothing as wild as some of you had, but it did rumble and flash for a while. It looks like the worst of the storms were north of here. There is another line of storms heading this way, but the rain is welcome.

It didn't rain just about all summer. The first time it rained any measurable amount was at the end of October, the day we moved. It rained steadily all day and it was very welcome. We are still way too dry, but it has rained more than it did over the summer. We are usually similar to Florida when it comes to rain. We usually go through a part of the summer when it rains almost every afternoon, not a lot, usually just a shower that might last 30 minutes. I never thought I would say it, but the South Eastern US could sure use a good tropical storm, especially south of here.

We're to be down close to zero and here's the east coast...
Border States Hit Really Deep Freeze

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Temperatures dropped to breathtaking levels, well below zero, in extreme northern sections of Maine early Monday.

Thermometers registered 34 degrees Fahrenheit below zero at Van Buren, 27 below at Presque Isle and 26 below at Allagash, the National Weather Service reported.

In the northern Rockies, Butte, Mont., registered 32 below at 8 a.m. — with a wind chill of minus 47, the weather service said.

Another of the nation's usual cold spots, International Falls, Minn., managed only 16.1 below zero, but even after the sun came up its temperature of 14 below combined with 6 mph wind for a wind chill of 29 below zero, according to a weather service Web site.

As the cold air blew across Lake Ontario, it picked up enough moisture to produce 3 feet of lake-effect snow Sunday in New York's Oswego County. The roof of a public works garage holding snow removal equipment collapsed early Monday in Fulton, N.Y., under the weight of 37 inches of snow, and the town declared a state of emergency. The region at the east of Lake Ontario often gets heavy lake-effect snow.

"We're digging out," said state police Sgt. Edwin Croucher in Fulton. He reported multiple accidents caused by the storm but no serious injuries.

WOW! We have had another 2" of snow since late this afternoon! Bitterly cold, 7 this morning, with outdoor recesses cancelled last 3 days. Warmer would be better, but I LOVE the snow :-)

With more snow on the way, another 2" maybe... Maybe a "snow day" for us, which we NEVER get... I hope

We are having another snow storm coming thru tonite, after it was 47 today! Everything melted and was like spring. An old timer told my husband it was always snowy here (Boise) in the winter and then got drier and drier. It might not be a bad thing if those times returned. Would replenish our water tables, etc....

New snow here, several inches. A "perfect storm" of 2 storms hit at the same time. About 3 new inches down here, more on the way tomorrow. I keep hoping for a "snow day". No luck so far.... :-(

Central Ohio - It was in the upper 40's last night then we had extremely high winds. I was afraid to sleep upstairs it was roaring so loud. Today its in the 20's. Had to cut up a tree that was down across our driveway.
Ok, how fast is the speed of dark?

We had a lot of wind night before last too. We had a several dozen flattened moving boxes on the deck awaiting a trip to the recycler and when we woke up yesterday they were all over the neighborhood. Got our exercise recovering them. Now there is a cinderblock sitting on top of them. Temps are still mild. It is 37 right now and should make it up to almost 60 today. 68 and rain tomorrow and then the mid 60's through the weekend.

We have had several cold snaps this winter, but they have only lasted a day or two, then it has gone back into the 60's. Mild even for Coastal Southeastern NC. I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop. We usually get our worst weather in January and February. Except for the year we had the first white Christmas in over 100 years. Got close to 2 feet in two days. People around here were in shock. It happened back in the 80's; I can't remember the exact year.

I've had to run down recycling too before!!! We had 35 mile a hour winds this morning. Snow blowing completely sideways! Warming up a bit and slushy snow now. Supposed to be another 1-2" tonite/tomoorow. Had to go back to work today. But tomorrow's Friday! :-)

There were boxes in the woods next to the house this morning; not mine. I snagged them, mashed them and added them to the pile under the cinderblock.

We always have a pretty stiff breeze here; the coast is only about 6 miles away, but right now it's holding steady at about 15mph and every now and then there is a good gust. It is currently 63, spitting rain and is supposed to be 68. Welcome to February.

It melted a bit here, but another 2-4 inches tonite/tomorrow! 1st snowday in Boise in over 20+ years and most snow low in the valley since I don't know when....

We had a little melting yesterday and sun!!! I didn't realize how long it had been since we had a REALLY sunny day! More snow forecast for tonite and tomorrow night, 1-3" both. I am starting to wonder if this is the trend for the rest of winter? Wouldn't be so bad, less drought. Although a fast, warm spring could meaning flooding in certain areas....

Anyone affected by the tornadoes in Tennessee? That was pretty bad. I heard 26 people died. It sounds like this was really abnormal and caught a lot of ppl off guard. Like those tornadoes in Illinois and Wisconsin a month or so ago.

Aprylla ...

Had a near front row seat.

Fortunately for us, most "weather" skirts around us here ... near Knoxville ... 'bout 40 miles NE.

We had plenty of rain and a bit of thunder ... still very windy, but nothing like the rest of Tenn.

Many are hurting right now. Prayers.

Good thing you weren't affected Granny. I have a friend in TN that I keep in touch with through email. I emailed him but haven't heard back yet. Now I hear the number is up to 55? Crazy. Winter twisters are scary because people are lulled into a state of complacency in the colder months. Thinking they are safe. I know I think like that even in the spring. Although spring twisters can be bad as well.

Aprylla ...

The weather is getting a bit hairy lately ...

Today the sky was clear and the real blue ... you know ... like it used to be ... until this afternoon when the planes showed up.

I guess it does not matter much any more what they are doing ... cause most people don't look up and most think you are crazy and say ... "What, those jets?

Uh yeah, I think to myself ... when by 5 pm the blue sky was gone and the milky white was back ... and they crisscrossed the sky ... big Xs and grids and people think that is normal ... I don't get it.

Sometimes the trails are really spectacular ... today there were many that were near curly ... thick and bright white.

Sinus trouble will be here tomorrow.

So many heartbreaking stories on the internet about the devastation caused by those recent twisters, and yet you really gotta dig for those stories. All the media covers now is this damn election stuff and Hollyweird people. Those folks in the SE are still important but how they're faring and the extent of the damage isn't even being covered in the nightly news lately. Not even an update on how those folks are getting their lives back together, and it's right here in our country! Such a terrible shame. Nevertheless, i'm keeping them in the forefront of my prayers, right along with all those good folks who lost their property, families and animals right in the pacific northwest from recent floods. I guess they all aren't rich enough to be in the news. psh!

Record highs on Monday remind residents this is Texas
The rest of the week is expected to be dry and cool.

By Miguel Liscano
AMERICAN-STATESMAN STAFF
Tuesday, February 26, 2008

Spring is still a month away. But this is Texas, and warmer seasons sometimes have sneaky ways of making appearances in February.

Monday was the warmest day of the year and the hottest it's been on that date for more than half a century, meteorologists said.

The temperature reached 92 degrees at Camp Mabry and 89 degrees at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport on Monday, breaking records of 89 degrees, set in 1918, and 87 degrees in 1954, respectively.

Today was expected to be cooler, with highs in the 60s, Lower Colorado River Authority meteorologist Bob Rose said. Parts of Central Texas might see a light freeze early Wednesday.

"That's what's so weird," Rose said. "We're going from the low 90s, possibly down to freezing."

The hottest day ever recorded in February was Feb. 21, 1996, when thermometers reached 101 at the airport and 99 at Camp Mabry, KVUE meteorologist Mark Murray said.

Ah, the joys of living in Texas! We also had wildfires and smoke in many places yesterday.

Yeah, I just moved to Austin from Michigan; they definitely have extremes of hot AND cold there. The 25th was nuts! 92 degrees in January! I went out for bike ride, and sat out and ate dinner at night, until the wind picked up and the temp suddenly dropped.

One minute it was nice and 89 degrees and the next second all my food was blown off the table. Two hours later the temp was in the 60s and the next morning it was like 30! 60 degree temp diff!!!

Central Ohio - We just had "The worst snow storm in Ohio's history." 20 inches of snow over a two day period! An average snowfall is two inches. A big snowfall for us is four or five inches.
Ok, how fast is the speed of dark?

Mild here last week or so, days 50+! I hope we have more rain though, it's been a 7 year drought.
Sorry for your snow :-(

It rained mud in Central Texas (San Antonio/New Braunfels/Austin) yesterday! The weather people said it was from dust being blown up into the atmosphere before a big storm. There were winds and the storms were scary looking.
