Anna, I did a lot of preparing before y2k. I tend to worry about things so the peace of mind was invaluable. We looked into solar but were told Ohio did not have enough sun to be able to depend on that option. We also looked into a hand pump but the well was too deep.

Second Wind, We bought our generator the end of '99'. We had an electrician install it to our power box so all we had to do was click over to the pre-planned switches we needed. THIS was the first time we have ever had to use it. It worked great but it was REALLY NOISY! We parked it outside our attached garage. We ran it four hours in the morning and four hours in the evening. The milk that was in the frige is still OK. My husband had to find a gas station that was still open. We never thought of that. A generator wouldn't do much good without gas.

Animalspirits, tell your friend hello for me. We'll never forget this one! The day seemed so long without electricity. No computer! Our land line was out as well but the cell phones worked fine. We used our 'crank' radio and our stockpile of votive candles. Very glad for those!
Yesterday our daughter and her husband helped us clean up the yard. Their work places were still without power.

Only two days without power but it seemed a lot longer!

Sharon,

She said the same thing. I just got an email from her telling me her landline phone was working, but they still have no power. They have to have a generator as they are on well water.

Yep...you have to have gas. We have about 10 or so cans to fill before the storm hits. If we don't need the gas, we use it in the cars. You can also add a stabilizer to the cans that allows you to keep the gas for months.

They are noisy. Just make sure you don't use it in a garage/enclosed space or you can get carbon monoxide in your house.

I am very happy you have your power back.

LS.....yeppers, got the "eeeeee" sound really bad in my head tonight.



About the weird and extremely loud thunder/explosions.....

This has been happening here is West Texas, for about the past couple of years.

Even neighbors and local news people have remarked about it being the loudest, and strangest, thunder and lightning they have ever experienced.

It really freaks me out, because it reminds me of something....but I don't know what.

All I can say is....and please don't laugh.....

When I saw Spielberg's "War Of The Worlds", the thing that scared me the most - and, in fact, sent me into a ridiculous, out-of-proportion anxiety reaction so bad I had to call my sister - was the lightning and thunder during the beginning of the "invasion".

I do not know why I had such a reaction. And I don't know what it "reminds" me of.

I try to tell myself that it just reminds me of being scared by thunderstorms when I was little.....but it's more than that. But what?

it makes sense, second wind. you cld be remembering the storm that is to come -- the edge of the "changes" in my visions involves a storm of earth changing proportions.

it is the time that "halloween" remembers -- when all the doors between worlds shake loose (lots of lightning and thunder -- even w/out the rain) and all kinds of beings and things flying in/out/thru our world It was so eerie in that movie -- almost like the atmosphere was not quite right, like it was altered. I still find it quite frightening as well ...

also, i love storms but the wind and lightening are frighten me more often during the past decade or so than in the previous four-- or so it seems to me.

mary, jesus' mother, when she has appeared to others to speak of this event, has advised people to go inside with plenty of candles, water, and blankets. It sounds as tho the whole thing starts with the sun. she has said an enormous storm will be followed by a darkness that will last three days and three nights. demons and all kinds of "other worldly" creatures will roam the world oustide one's doors. My guess is that many of us carry a genetic memory of the event. One's soul may also carry memories of such events on earth.

Those are very good observations, blue. You could be right on the money.


"you cld be remembering the storm that is to come -- the edge of the "changes" in my visions involves a storm of earth changing proportions."


WOW! That's exactly how it feels, now that I actually think about what you just said!! It is more like a premonition, than a memory of something past. Dear Lord.....


"It was so eerie in that movie -- almost like the atmosphere was not quite right, like it was altered."


BINGO!

Yesterday was weird here in sweden. Its autumn here and usually this time of year its cold, rain and wind... cold winds, i might add.

Yesterday, though, it was nearly 20 degrees celsius, clear, and almost summery weather with warm winds... not that i complain, but its strange nonetheless.

It's too warm here during the day for this time of year. High 70's during the day and almost freezing most nights. Normal would be 42 to 52 during the day and freezing at night.

I had to get the hoses out and start watering again.

And what is with all the twins? We saw more twin fawns this yr then single fawns, so it seemed the normal was twins this year.

Whenever I make phone calls to take care of business I always ask about weather conditions. This yr I also asked about deer and found twin fawns being born until very late all the way back to New York.

Lassen, really toasty here in central PA during the day, too. Also, it has been balmy and windy, but dark and creepy! At night the moon is so bright, I can walk Gracie, as she's had to get up and pee twice. I love walking in the moonlight. No UFOS lol! No twin fawns here, just singles, but a much bigger deer population, in general. WAY too much road kill, sad.

found this on Halloween

Celtic sagas tell of many important heroic and prophetic events occurring on Samhain. It was a sacred time, during which warriors were ordered to lay down arms and observe a peace. Great feasting and ritualized drunkenness were the rule: revelers consumed huge quantities of mead and beer. Yet it was a serious event: anyone who missed the festival ran the risk of going mad and dying, according to legend.

"In marking the onset of winter, Samhain was closely associated with darkness and the supernatural," adds Nicholas Rogers, a York University history professor and author of Halloween: From Pagan Ritual To Party Night. "The festival was closely related with prophecy and story-telling." It was a time out of time, "charged with a peculiar preternatural energy."


sidhe (burial mound) in Ireland

Samhain was considered a period "between years," a magical interval during which the spirits of the dead spilled out of the sidhe, the ancient burial mounds of the Celts, and walked among the living. "It was an intensely spiritual time, for it was the one period when the Otherworld became visible to mankind," writes Peter Ellis in The Dictionary Of Celtic Mythology.

Well something Did happen in 1972..
something to do with the Sun and
Earth wobbles and I think X help..
Maybe we had not reached our full
potential here on Earth..and the
True Soul Savers stepped in to make
us happy ..there is documentation of
such a stand off in the research of
the Cosmos in some books ..

I'm happy because back in 1972 I only

Well, here in southwest florida we broke a 98 year record for the coldest temperature. It was 47 here last night and yesterday didn't get out of the 60's. Our normal overnights should be in the 60's this time of year. England had the earliest snowfall in 74 years and the northeast just got an early nor'easter.

Overnight on 29/30 October 2008, the county of Devon in the UK - and the town of Ottery St. Mary in particular - was hit a by a freak hailstorm which left hail drifts up to six feet deep.

This BBC News page includes photographs and video:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/devon/7700167.stm

The south-east of England also experienced up to an inch of snow overnight 28/29 October - the first time snow has settled on the ground in London during October since 1934, and in the greater south-eastern part of England since 1974:

40 and lots of rain here which we really needed. Maybe snow tonight about 5,000ft elevation expected, so we might get a little here.

Cats in, cats out, but not for long. Our doggers prefer snow so they are napping next to the woodstove.

Snow boots,wool socks,gloves,hats and thermals, snow shovels at hand, we are almost ready for a winter wonderland.

not really weather but some strange happenings w/the tides (cause unknown) in May on 10/28/08.

http://www.wcsh6.com/news/local/story.aspx?storyid=95126&catid=2

an excerpt: BOOTHBAY HARBOR (NEWS CENTER) -- Some boats were scratched and docks damaged Tuesday afternoon when low tide became high within a matter of minutes.

Locals in the area say it happened about 6 or 7 times throughout the afternoon. They say it surged in within a matter of 5 minutes, then flowed back out just as quickly.

The National Weather Service says the cause "remains a mystery and may never be known."



p.s. October 28th was a New Moon (7:14 EDT)

Clear and a bone-chilling 13 degrees F. We had about 2 ft from this last storm. Another due late Thurs. with more snow continuing through Tuesday.

Oh, joy,,,wish I had a sauna, a good steam and a roll in the snow for those aching muscles. I overdid the shoveling and resorted to a bowl of snow and a hot shower, yeow..it worked...

Sorry it took so long to answer. Our streets have pretty much been clear since Thursday. Snow doesn't last long here. Now it may snow on the 25th instead of the 27th. Our weather is so unstable sometimes! All I know is that my thermometer outside is currently reading 38 degrees!

it's unusally warm here in the south east of norway. 46.4 f, and not a grain of snow (what little there was melted away). it's like a sunny day in october. we have definitely been seeing a warming trend here since 1986. my childhood winters were always snowy and cold.

Central Ohio - It went down to four degrees last night with a wind chill of 15 below zero! That's feakin' cold for this time of year.

We've had an unusually cold pre-winter. Our bad weather doesn't normally start until mid January or later. There are exceptions to the rule though.

Mist and cloud
on this cool winter day
Wet leaves cling to brown
Barron branch touches grey.

Cool, moist air
a hint of breeze
the birds singing riot
for sleepers, a tease.

Grateful greens
still damp of rain
with bud that can flurish
cold, wet...not a bane.

Peaceful. quiet
this cool winter day
light candles, a fire,
a book...at home stay.

Snow is heavy stuff. I just caught a news story about a school roof collapsing from the weight of the snow.
I start to get nervous when we get 4 ft overhead and more coming. Last year a lot of metal storage sheds collapsed on this street.

It's funny, but we get snow belts. These are also areas that get heavier rain fall. They also have lakes or main streams. And so we tend to get a few inches more snow in my neighborhood.

Not enough snow for snow mobiles, too many trees for cross country skies make tractors and over-powered ATVs the favorite take the kids to the bus stop transportation.................... SUV's are handy in the snow, but it takes less digging make an ATV pathway out to the plowed road.....
ATV stands for ALL-Terrain -Vehicle. An open cab type fiberglass body and motorcycle engine with 4 small knobby tires. If you love motorcycles, you won't like riding one of these.

Most 4wheel drives will go through a couple of feet of wet snow, and soft snow tires grip well enough to get over most icy snow,,,but they handle mushy on our Jimmy,,OK below 40 mph,,....unnerving at higher speeds on our slanted for run-off highway.
Chains on a front wheel drive van or car, if you can get out of your driveway, work pretty good. Front wheel drives handle better in the snow, if you have enough clearance. About half the folks around here drive front wheel drive cars all winter..and some drive what they have, no matter what the weather....

I share hope folks are prepared in their travels...chains, blankets, warm clothes, boots and a little food and water.

Another turn around in Central Ohio - Today is supposed to reach an all time high. Right this minute it is 53 degrees and might go up another ten! Normal is in the 30s.

I think someone/s playing w/the jet stream again -- perhaps those of us so inclined can focus on earth's well being/balance.

The current bevy of storm systems are popping up rapid fire along a jet stream that is behaving in a spring/fall manner -- rather than in winter/summer mode. It cld be "natural" but I am doubting that bigtime. The storms that many of us are experiencing are popping up in a fashion not unlike those that were spawning hurricanes (off the coast of Africa) late in August (Galveston).

Cold and warm spells are not uncommon in the upper midwest -- but for them to occur up/down over the course of a day or two and then repeat again over several weeks is highly unusual. I think someone/s is yanking our chain/s again. I think they are counting on the more spiritually aware of us to think this is just part of the changes -- but historically in all technologically advanced "changes" times -- there have been forces which have "tipped" the scales thru misuse of technology. I hope most of us have learned by now that the more technologically advanced a system is -- the easier it is to sabotage it thru mind/soul power. (ie., its a lot easier to move electrons around than it is to unlock (with your mind) a huge mechanical lock). Just adding our focus/energy to earth to help earth reach balance shld work best.


and I believe Dannion Brinkley is right -- that much of the worst that is happening in our collectively shared world right now is an effort to distract us from the Christ energy (tho he does not use the word Christ) pouring into our world at this time.

Yawning,ahh..Our sunny Weather for the next wk with high temps has changed in the last 2 hrs to snow at 4,000ft on Thursday. A storm coming in from the w.coast..doesn't make sense as the coast is almost never freezing cold and the systems from Hawaii are warm.

Snow storms should come from the North. It is only in the last 3 yrs that our winter storms here in Far Northern CA.(think almost in Oregon) have started coming from the West.

On our side of the planet, we have been having a record heat wave, It had been over 40C here for the past week or so (I think this is 105F ).

See Record-breaking heat scorches southern Australia

Thankfully it is back to 22C (72F) today (it actually feels cold) where I live. In Victoria, it looks like 200 dead in the bushfire tragedy, which is not yet over See Grisly body search continues as death toll rises

Just for the official record - The US has been suffering below normal temps for the last year..... not what Dr. Hansen seems to think.

sonork, Mount Lassen in Lassen National Park is about 20 miles N.East of my home. It last erupted in 1915. Annual snowfall is 660 to over a 1,000 inches of snow annually.

Mount Shasta is less then 75 miles away as the crow flies.

Groovy. I kinda wish I could go back out West to live. I used to live in Laramie, WY for a short time as a kid. I loved the mountains....

I got to spend some time at Ft. Lewis in 1991 and would spend every evening sitting on the steps with a cold beer and a cheap cigar and just look at Mt. Ranier.

Absolutely lovely land.

Big blizzard just hit my region. Some snow drifts in my yard are almost up to the roof. I'm going to take pics after work and try to get them up soon. Seems like it was a normal winter for us. Last few winters have been pretty mild temps. This one kicked us in the arse. Makes sense though since we are at a solar minimum.

Wish I remembered just where your region is located, Aprylla. Drifts up to the roof,yee Gads!!!
What do you do with all that snow?

My Dad used to talk of tunneling through the snow to get to the barn and outhouse in the winter. He was raised on a ranch in Montana located on the Snake River outside of Great Falls. Guess he wasn't kidding about the tunnels.

Geez, Aprylla, stay safe and warm!

Here in central Texas, we have been having lovely spring weather for the last week or so, with temperatures climbing into the 70s and 80s. Today, however, it's cold, dreary, and rainy, with a temperature right now of 35--and a wind chill factor of 27.

I came here to complain, but, after seeing Aprylla's post, I've had serious second thoughts!

I've heard TX is in a really bad drought. Anyways. Yeah I'm in ND. Whole Eastern half of the state was shut down. Got out of work for a day though. :-) Last chance for me to take a picture of it tonight because tomorrow it's supposed to start warming up. It'll melt then we'll get a huge spring flood, like we do almost every year. My sump pump will be going non-stop. The problem with the flooding is that the farmers dig deeper and deeper ditches every year. So all the water from up in the higher regions is funneling faster down to the valley. Flooding the Red River. The biggest cities are by the river so everyone gets together and sandbags. I've done it a couple years. It's actually kind of fun.

Well massive flooding is supposed to hit my region. Went sandbagging this weekend and my legs are killing me. If they let us out of work I will go again. Pop some Ibuprofen and keep going. That's all you can do in times like these. Heard that it's supposed to dip below freezing on Wednesday. If that happens sandbags will freeze and they will essentially be worthless. People in this area should have learned their lesson after the flood of 1997 but many homes were put up in slough-like areas. Also the city has had over a decade and no new flood walls were put up. Now they are scrambling to build earthen dams. So send good vibes our way.

We now have a winter storm warning on top of the existing flooding. I wasn't too worried and my spirits were high all this week. Now I'm getting a tad troubled by this latest development. I'm on sandbag dike patrol on Thursday morning. Send me lots of warm thoughts!

So you live in ND, the land of the Sioux. No amount of sandbagging or Ibuprofen or praying to your God will prevent your gradual but inevitable demise. The Great Mother will return to those souls who lived in harmony with her.

Getting out of "work" for a day. What a blessing those who came after the cancer of Western "civilization" could hope for, along with endless growth, cars, flat screen televisions, and all the pollution, carcinogens, and raping and pillaging of the planet which are just now coming back to haunt you.

You at first dig your sand bags, then your graves. The continent was doomed in 1492, and no amount of prayers,sand bags, military interventions, and other collective forms of psychosis, hypocrisy, and primitive disrespect for life forms will ever save you from the path you have now chosen.

In the meantime, keep digging, keep praying. That Garden of Eden, the fountain of eternal youth, these notions of endless growth, these rather obvious delusions that one race of people are "on God's side" or were meant to be are soon to crash in on those who ascribed to such delusions like a house of glass, like a house of paper cards.

Meanwhile, watch the Great Mother whom you were supposed to respect and revere, yet raped and destroyed like it was your littering box, turn against you and your children in the years to come

You only have yourselves to blame

World wide draughts with simultaneous flooding. We had the coldest winter in decades, and it still hasn't left us yet. Meanwhile, across the globe, Australia, which has its summers while we have our winters, was literally scorched by the hot summer sun.

Then you factor in the decline of the bees, mass extinctions of various species in just a relative tick on the earth's geological clock, and I should think that at least someone would begin to feel or sense that the earth itself is turning against the parasites that are making her sick. Look for world wide pandemics and as the global economic melt down continues unabated, an increase in wars and plagues as people are malnutritioned and crowded into make shift unsanitary tent cities and FEMA style camps. I should think that someone out there should come to their senses and realize we are seeing the end times, as the xtians call it.

Remember the dates December 21st-22nd 2012, when the constellation of Orion is in the same alignment as it was some 12,000 years ago. The judger of mankind. We have been weighed in the scales and found wanting. Sooner or later, the sheets get balanced.
