now today we have massive chemtrails over the San Fernando Valley! Even an oily rainbow, like when you see an oily puddle with colors on the ground.
like that, but in the sky in the chemtrail made wispy "cloud"-cover drips. very humid and sticky!YUK!

What about those tubular clouds, man?

"These long, crazy-looking clouds can grow to be 600 miles long and can move at up to 35 miles per hour, causing problems for aircraft even on windless days.

Known as Morning Glory clouds, they appear every fall over Burketown, Queensland, Australia, a remote town with fewer than 200 residents. A small number of pilots and tourists travel there each year in hopes of “cloud surfing” with the mysterious phenomenon."


Got to love Australia.

The caption reads "I've never seen a fast ejection like this before," says Godard. "I recorded the action using a 3-inch refracting telescope and a Coronado SolarMax filter."

look for the ejection on the right half of the screen.

Altho there seems to be no suspicion that this event "escaped" from the sun -- what if? and then multiply that by gazillions caught up in the solar wind racing into space -- cld the phenomenon be considered "raining fire"?

I think those "tube clouds" may be chemtrails. They're VERY parallel, which is odd....

We have finally had a very blessed 5 days of rain here in central Texas, bringing our yearly rainfall total almost to the normal level, replenishing area lakes, and relieving the crushing drought--and heat--we have been experiencing all summer.

It is supposed to be in the upper 50s here at night in about 3-5 days.

This is quite unusual for us since we are in the prime of hurricane season...and it is usually much warmer.

This is actually good news for those of us in the South as it will begin to cool the upper Gulf of Mexico sooner and decrease the chance of strong hurricanes hitting us.

The news story on the 23rd AP/NASA about the alarming rate of ice melt in Greenland was another surprise. Not the story but the fact that it was reported even in our little newspaper down here on Cape Haze. It seems like such a short time ago that Whitley and Anne were way out on the fringe with this information. When will the tipping point be? The ice core data is very clear about what happens when the Gulf stream stops. I have been watching the flow every day for a long time. Thought we would have to move back off the coast to central FL but don't think so now. By the way animalspirits the section from south of Sebring to the top of Okeechobee is very beautiful. So vast and emty almost like an African savanna. You would expect Giraffs and Elephants to come walking out of the treeline as you pass by. The amazing thing is the archaeological remains found in places like the warm mineral springs in North Port show that their ancestors were here. Trying to escape the ice most likely. The dates match up very well. I have just returned from the Randell Research Center in Pineland on the north end of Pine Island. The Calusa people have been taking up all my research time for a couple of years now. What is left of the mounds and shell islands they built in this area in most interesting. They were here for a very long time. Will not bore everyone with all the numbers. Anyway it is cooling down here as well and I am also happy for the decrease in the chance of a strong hurricane. We are however getting allot of late season thunderstorms and rain around here. That is good though because we needed the rain and I really like thunderstorms. Thank you all for being here

I was watching the national weather and it's heavy snow in low elevations in the Tetons, way colder than usual in Montana and Wyoming. Almost 1 month or more colder than usual. Maybe the climate changes settling in???

One should never rule out the possibility that the unusual meteorological patterns this planet has been experiencing over the last two decades, and which will only increase in intensity and span over the ensuing years, isn't the result of some mad panel of frocked scientists operating out of an underwater laboratory, with megalomaniacal designs of wanting to govern all of humankind.

This past week I revisited the 1966 spy-flick In Like Flint, which has our suave and spiffy-dressed hero, James Coburn, up against a group of power-hungry lab-coats who have mastered the means of stabilizing Earth's atmospheric conditions, and, thus, have been up to manipulating this very environment so as to suit their own villainous, ambitious purposes. “You control the weather, and you control the world,” explains one of these mad temperature regulators.

Might we be currently experiencing a case of life-mirroring-art at work upon the Earth?

In keeping with this cinematic scenario, we may reach a point where all of Earth's inhabitants are made to realize the dire state of their biosphere ... for a reason – due to these irregular topsy-turvy global forecasts – so as for it to be revealed that our salvation rests solely in the palms of a handful of frizzy-haired, bespectacled and goateed fogies who have been causing the hurricanes and tsunamis that we have been seeing all along, via the push of a button, with paradisaical weather reports offered us if all we do is surrender to the scientists' demands.

Correction: In Like Flint is the incorrect film title. The movie that was seen last week and that is being referred to in the above post is that picture's predecessor, 1966's Our Man Flint.

I apologize to anyone that might have rented the wrong movie.

Back onto weather, we had a freak snowstorm here in central PA yesterday. Centre County (I'm in Mifflin County, southwest), really got clobbered) was featured on "The Today Show." We're in the possible crosshairs of another winter storm tomorrow! This is the first October snow storm I can ever remember around these parts.
But there are dreams that cannot be,
And there are storms we cannot weather ....

In central Ohio, we've had early frosts and freezes. Normally we can still harvest vegetables till the end of October, but not this year. All of my flowers were hit, too.

They were predicting snow for today but think they cancelled it.

I was working on our old truck in the garage on Friday and it was 95 degrees. We have had record heat here in SW Florida for September and October. Currently it is 50 degrees. A 45 degree temp swing in 24 hours. After the longest stretch of 90 degree days anyone around here can remember it is amazing how fast it has changed.

Today in Central Ohio it is sunny and getting warmer. Back to normal temps this week.

Sharon,

They are in the tank, with a prediction that it will take years for them to come back.

I am in North Florida. They are worse in South and Central Florida.

Part of the problem is that we are in a homeowners insurance crisis here with all the major national companies either no longer selling insurance in the State or leaving.

DO NOT move to Florida. No jobs, no insurance, etc.

Hi Sharon, I must say animalspirits has summed up the situation very well. Tanked is about all you can say. Good time to buy if you don't need a job. Woke up to 50 degree temps again this morning. Hard to get used to when it happens so quickly. Spent most of my life in New England and would never have believed 50 was cold.

Well back to normal here. It's 86 now. Can't wait for the next cold front to arrive. I must do some research on the temps at the equator over the last hundred years. I think Anne said on a chat that Whitley does not care for to much heat. I can understand that totally. Our poor air conditioner has taken a beating this year. Miss leaves changing colors for sure..........

The Big Melt Down is well underway.

Measured three feet of the white stuff in our front yard.

This reminds me of Colorado as it used to be back in the '70's. I hope it stays like this.

animal spirts--

Indeed. I recall FLA was 'the' cool place to move to for all us 80's New Orleans kids. Sorta a sunny California type mystique. Well it's great for a vacation and if you can live near the beach.

Fla is for the nearly dead and the newly wed. It is a police state, gawd help you if you get into any trouble in that state. No insurance & housing slumps, giant bugs & oppressive heat. Hurricanes blow you out every other year. Alwaysamazes me when Nothereners live their entire life in a temperate climate then retire to FLA to complain about humidity, bugs & heat. A stat somewhere I read said that 1/2 move to NC mountains after 1 year.

If you must live there try the panhandle.

Jimmy,

Your post just about nailed it.

Yep, those Palmetto Bugs (Roaches) are big enough to saddle. Yet if the Yanks didn't put pesticides and fertilizer on everything and kill the spade-headed Skinks (which eat almost exclusively Palmetto Bugs) they would find they are quite effective keeping the Palmetto Bugs under control.

North Carolina can have them.

I do live in the panhandle.

Looks like southwest Florida has missed Ida. We were starting to get worried for a few days there but a strong wind coming across the state from the Atlantic kept it out in the middle of the gulf. It has been grey and dark with a few rain bands going over but thats about it. Very strange that we had the hottest summer anyone can remember and got nothing. The gulf water temps were very high. Now that the air and water temps have cooled way down we get a very late season storm? Good luck to the folks up in the panhandle looks like they are about to get the worst of it soon.

Sweltering heat in the high 30's (celcius)for southern Australia at the moment. We are heading to our second week in a row, Bushfire season has already begun, with dry conditions and lightening strikes. We don't usually get weather like this until January and February!

Two weeks of horrible, dry, scorching, sizzle and then over the weekend we had a whole MONTH's rain dumped on us! Something is seriously WRONG with this. Low 20's this week but then it's predicted to be back in the 30's by the weekend. Yoyo weather? You bet!

We had a big wind storm with trees down and a power outage the day after Thanksgiving, but somehow we never got the foot of snow that was forecast.

Not much snow this year, just very cold rain.

Red flag and freeze warnings all over south Florida for this weekend and most of the week. Was 39 here last night. Turned on the heating system for only the second time in five years.

It is going to be either in the low 20s or upper teens here for the next five days. Can't remember it being that cold for that long.

Sharon,

Yes, more than likely the Orange crop will be affected. As to how much, it will depend on how long it is freezing or below freezing during each night.

Headlines like this are popping up all over the world:

http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/100104/world/as_asia_storms_1

So many U.S. snowfall records were shattered on Christmas Day ALONE it boggles the mind. I may have seen this elsewhere on the board, so forgive me if somebody else posted it already. Look at all the dots down South!

GM,

Yes, we may get some flurries later this week.

If I am not mistaken, the more below freezing hours the better the Peach crop...love those Georgia Peaches.

Still frozen in North Florida...

Well, this winter is much like last winter in the upper midwest. Cold and a lot of snow. Is that weird weather? I think everyone is having weird weather these days, at least at some point.

Another hard freeze for the Northshore
of lake Pontchartrain (Greater New Orleans
area). It's the coldest for this time of
year since 1996. I remember it back then and lost many beautiful outdoor tropicals..may happen
again.

Its 54 degrees here in the north east with tons and tons of rain. My cats behavior is more wierd than the weather though. He has been on edge all day, hasn't slept all day long, not normal for him during the day. He keeps going to the window and just yelling at the wind and rain outside. Don't fret though, I don't think hes a feline profit of weather doom, lol He always does this when its very windy. He HATES loud windy days. He was rescued cold and wet under a porch in another town as a kitten, so I wonder if he has bad little kitten memories.

I think tornado's do happen even in S. Cali, although rare. We actually usually get 1 or 2 a year here in Connecticut, we have our own lil tornado ally. Northern CT, Southern/Western Mass.

some tornado break down #'s by states
http://lwf.ncdc.noaa.gov/img/climate/research/tornado/avgt5304.gif

http://www.spc.noaa.gov/archive/tornadoes/st-trank.html


below is copies from http://www.usatoday.com/weather/resources/askjack/archives-tornado-history.htm
Q: How common are tornadoes in California? When they hit, people always say how unusual they are, but is that really the case?

A: Tornadoes are not as rare in the Golden State as most people seem to think. From 1950-2004, there were 303 documented tornadoes in California, and, since 1993, an additional 57 waterspouts in the state’s coastal waters — an average of almost six tornadoes and five waterspouts per year. But so far in 2005, California is more like Tornado Alley, with about 20 tornadoes in the state, including 12 in Sacramento County — more than in the Oklahoma City metro area!

Though 80% of California tornadoes are weak, with Fujita scale rankings of F-0 or F-1, there have been a number of significant storms in populated areas. With 41 tornadoes, Los Angeles County ranks as the tornado capital of the state, five of which were ranked as F-2. Nearby Orange County has had 28 tornadoes and at least as many waterspouts concentrated in its relatively small area of 798 square miles.

In a recent study, veteran California tornado expert John Monteverdi of San Francisco State University estimates that approximately half of the state’s tornadoes are spawned by supercells. The remainder are the result of smaller circulations, including a number of “cold air funnels.”

California has had two unique tornado events in the past decade. In 1998, an F-2 tornado in Sunnyvale was the first anticyclonic supercell and anticyclonic tornado to be documented with the WSR-88D NEXRAD radar. And in July 2004, the highest-elevation tornado ever observed in the USA. was photographed along Rockwell Pass in the Sequoia National Park, at an elevation of about 12,000 feet.




Until a bunch more break out in L.A. I'd say no need to panic.

SSM,

They never forget those bad times. Roscoe was abused and then abandoned and I have had him 10 years. He is still scared of rain, thunder, and wind...so is Shadow and although she lived inside she was in Ft. Walton Beach (near Pensacola) and I know there were several bad hurricanes that went through there. She is scared of the dark and wind/rain too.

They are both totally indoor Dogs here and safe finally.

AS yeah definitely!

Both my fathers dogs are rescues from abusive homes. Sometimes we forget when there is a fly inside and roll up a newspaper, and that poor dog runs for the hills.

We had a huge winter storm last Friday, dumping a foot of snow in central Ohio. Today we had another one. We haven't had weather like this since 78!
