Title: Weather
Post by: Thad on March 25, 2008, 12:19:37 AM
It's currently 79 in here.  At 1:15 AM.  In late March.

If it's like this again tomorrow, fuck this saving on the electricity bill shit, the AC's going on.  If Brad doesn't like it he can up my rent.

Really what I need is a way to leave my bedroom door open without letting the cats in.  Unfortunately, cats are not dogs, so that's not an easy prospect; putting a fucking screen door inside the house does not seem like a reasonable undertaking (though it's totally the sort of thing Brad would do).  Maybe I can find some bitter-smelling spray to coat the entrance with.

...Weather report says it's going to cool down a few degrees starting Thursday.

But if it's like this in March, I am not looking forward to July.

...On the plus side, March is the perfect time of year to have a bed next to a window.

And on the less-plus side, even once July rolls around, at least it's a window on the north side of the house, not the east or west.

...Another thing I'm going to need to remember is to start brewing my coffee at night and throwing it in the fridge.  It is getting too hot for hot beverages.

Yeah?  Any good Comp Sci grad programs up that way?

EDIT: Not related to weather, but related to my extreme difficulty in getting some fucking sleep tonight and resultant foul mood:

Was pouring myself my last glass of water before bed.  Dropped it.  It shattered.

As I was on my way to bed, my contacts were out, making it much more difficult to sweep up all the shards than it would have been with them in.  (I am planning on picking up a pair of glasses, for occasions such as this, on Friday.  I was going to get them LAST Friday, but then during the squiggly-line portion of the eye test, I kept seeing squiggly lines that weren't actually there, most likely as a result of being viciously hungover, so they want me to come back and take it again.  I did not tell the doctor that I was viciously hungover, but inasmuch as she was staring directly into my eyeballs with a bright light and a magnifying glass, I am guessing she could tell.)

It was a nice glass, too.  Arrogant Bastard-branded.

And both trash and recycle were full, so I had to grab a new bag.  Left the full one standing next to the fridge; will take care of it in the morning.

Plus that was the last of the cold water.  I think we have a bag of ice in the freezer, but I am reluctant to smash it on a floor which may still have undetected shards of broken glass on it.

On the plus side, it scared the bejesus out of the cats.  (The cats are stupid.  They ran TOWARD the scary noise.)  But then, I could have scared them just by sneezing.  Lord knows I'll be doing plenty of that for the next month or two.  Which I guess brings us back to the topic of weather.

Anyway.  I'm fairly confident there are still tiny shards of broken glass on the kitchen floor.  If I'm really lucky, there may still be a couple stuck to my hands; managed to jab myself on one I couldn't see earlier.

There are still piles of snow taller than I am outside. And I'm pretty fucking tall. I hear the last time we reached Easter with this much snow still around was over two hundred years ago. This winter was brutal; they even shut down all the schools in Montréal last week so they could shovel the snow off the roofs to make sure they wouldn't collapse.

I had always thought that the bad part about Global Warming was not the 2-4 degree rise in average temperature in under a century. But the arable land devastating redistribution of water.

Upon further consideration, this is completely uninformed conjecture.  :hurr:

What we have here is a failure to communicate.

"Global warming" is a misleading term; there's a reason people are trying to replace it with "climate change".  A freakishly hot winter in one place can cause a freakishly cold one in another.  As Classic notes, the "warming" refers to the average temperature of the entire planet.

Michigan:  Most snow this winter ever recorded.  No one noticed however due to the fact that 60% of it melted away every five days.  There was maybe two straight weeks that it didn't break freezing at least once as apposed to the usual 7 to 9.  THIS IS NOT NORMAL HERE.  Also, TOO MUCH FUCKING WIND.

Same for Toronto all winter. We are only a few centimetres away from breaking the record for third-highest snowfall of any Toronto winter ever... it's been snowing all afternoon, so we might just break that mark today. But yeah, none of it lasted long. It's been fucking slush all winter. Normally it's dry and cold, with some snow.

Thank god I don't like in Buffalo.

The term used for that in the ministry of enviroment is Climate Variability. 

Speaking of variability, I just had one of those BC "If you don't like the weather, wait ten minute" days including an appearance by snow and hail.

The thing about maple syrup is that you need the soil and trees to freeze at night and unfreeze during the day. Now they just don't unfreeze at all.

It's looking grim as long as we have one of the pictured below in front of every house. Those should be long gone by now.

Y'know, I was actually up in Michigan this past weekend, I was in Ann Arbor on Friday trying to drive through that stuff.  What astounded me was not how much there was - it's the Frozen North, I expected that.  What astounded me was how fucking unprepared the city seemed to be.  I mean, that there would be huge snow was known well in advance, and yet when it hit, the roads were unsalted, and there weren't plows for hours.  Fucking Virginia is better prepared for snowfall than what I saw there.

Well, my kvetching about last night aside, the weather's pretty gorgeous right now.  A little warm indoors since we're not using the AC, but nice outdoors for bike riding and such.

Winters without snow have their advantages, and the climate's good for people with respiratory problems; my family moved here because my great-uncle had asthma.  (Of course, the brown cloud over Phoenix is NOT good for people with respiratory problems.)

And ASU's easy to get into.

Trying AC tonight, at a modest 77.  Good news is that my room seems substantially cooler than that, even with the door closed.

I was walking in the Mission today and things were looking a bit surreal. Bernal Hill had this dark stormy grey behind it, but the Eastern part of the sky was all afternoon sun. It made the hill have that fakey cut-out look that you get in mixed weather, sort of similar to the way an open-air stadium feels at night/sunset with all the bright lights turned on.

Also, it was raining so lightly it felt like a warmer version of snow and even sort of hung in the air a bit. Luckily it didn't pick up. I was worried I would end up drenched.

45 outside. Raining, while I loaded from the dock.

Well, it was sunny ten minutes ago.

Now I look outside, it's flurries.


Now, it's hail. 

There's a seagull outside my window trying to go across the harbour.  He just stopped and hunkered down in the depot across my street.

It's now back to snow, and the temperature is well above freezing.  The funny thing is that two weeks ago, the infinite amount of cherry blossoms started blooming.   I suspect it will be time to break out the snowblower again to tackle those bothersome flower pedals. 

I have a bit of a date this afternoon at this outdoor cafe by the inner harbour.  I hope she'll get in touch with me before that now.. 

Oh, it's back to rain.

Edit:  It all stopped, and it's sunny again.  All this in ten minutes.

Not much use when they're hiding under my bed.  I had to go and get a broom.

...Anyway.  It FEELS cooler today, but a check on the weather site says it's actually not, and the expected cooldown has been pushed back to NEXT week.

Didn't use the AC much last night.  Left it on long enough to cool the house to 77 and then turned it off and opened the windows, and it stayed there.

Of course, we're still in the time of year where it's cool at night.  Come July, the lows will be higher than our current highs.

Over the past couple weeks, it seemed to be getting unseasonably warm (for, well, northern California), reaching about 75 degrees. Yesterday it dropped twenty full degrees despite being every bit as sunny. Guess there's a storm coming, since now I'm seeing some clouds on the horizon... it'll probably be raining by the weekend.

The biggest problem with leaving your window open is, of course, noise.  Your brain learns to tune out train whistles in pretty short order, but lawnmowers and large trucks are another matter.

As are fucking idiots screaming "WHOOOOOOOOOOO" at 1 AM.

Still, going to enjoy the whole open-window thing as long as I can.  Our highs are going to be in the low 80's for awhile, it looks like.

So funny story,

For some reason, people pass by my street doing just that.  And while the sea is right across the road, noise seems to still come through my paper-thin walls as if a noise repeater was included in my monthly rent.

So this night, some people did just that with the "wooos' and the "heeeeeys" and the "hoo-haws" on a monday night. 

I was annoyed and pissed off as I had to rise in three.  Then for some reason those fools started up my stairs of all places.  Immediatly I knew they must have mistaken my digs for one three doors down.  Wow, drunk. 

So I jumped out of bed, threw on my blackest clothing, and my black cap and waited for them to try to open the door.  After three minutes of attempting with the key, they didn't get the point, so I opened the door in their faces.

In a very calm voice with the light of my fish tank as a backlight, I said "This, is not my home.  Understand that at this point, you best be elsewhere".

I glared.

And those idiots didn't say a word all the way back to their place.

Spent probably a solid eight hours today at my computer writing code (not that I'm complaining; I'm sort of trying to get a job where I do that 5 times a week).  By 12:40 I was wiped but also a little stir-crazy; I realized I hadn't left the house all day, and I don't like days like that.

Took a bike ride, my first late-night one since moving back to Tempe, and it was gorgeous.  It's about 70 out; just wonderful.

I've often wondered why most of Phoenix metro isn't nocturnal.  I mean, I understand there are jobs that require sunlight, but for the indoor professions where you've got the lights on anyway, I really don't get why we structure those around daylight.  I mean, yeah, switching our schedule around depending on the time of year would be disruptive, but the rest of the country changes its damn clocks twice a year.

Course, then I guess I wouldn't get nights like this.  But once I'm back to working 8-5, I won't be able to stay up this late then either.

Rode down to the old high school and back, since I'd mentioned it yesterday (http://brontoforum.us/index.php?topic=90.msg6670#msg6670).  Confirmed my suspicion that the palm trees in Ryan Kelly's drawing (http://www.corporate-sellout.com/img/ths-local7.jpg) do not actually exist (in fact the angle of the entrance is all wrong; it's actually at a 45-degree angle to the rest of the building), but I think the fact that I managed to look at that pic eleventy billion times without noticing anything was off means he did a pretty damn good job.

Anyway.  All this to say, it's gorgeous out tonight and I'm glad I got to get out in it for a little bit.  Think I'm going to leave my window open tonight, though that risks being awakened at an ungodly hour by the guys working across the street (I THINK they work on Saturdays).  Still, as long as it's still cooler outdoors than indoors at night, I may as well enjoy it; by July it's going to be 90 out at 2 AM.
Title: Re: Weather
Post by: Rosencrantz on May 16, 2008, 01:35:00 AM
The weather has been really nice here lately, usually hovering around 75-80. Today, however, it jumped up to 96 degrees. The forecast says it's going to stay there for the next three days or so and then go back down to 80 or so. I'm really not sure why the temperature here likes to jump roughly 20 degrees at a time for a few days.
Title: Re: Weather

After weeks at 115, it's a relief to walk outside and smell rain in the air.

Now, it hasn't rained yet, and just because it smells like it will doesn't mean it will.  But here's hoping.

'06 was a fucking nightmare; we went 143 days without rain, which AFAIK is the all-time record.  Last year wasn't so bad on that metric, but it DID set a record for the number of days topping 110 degrees.

We're technically in monsoon season now, but that's because this year they changed the definition -- monsoon season is now a specific period in calendar days rather than being based on dew point as it was previously.  (This is because rainfall over a specific number of days is a more reliable measurement than over however many days fall within the given dew point.)

Anyhow.  If it started raining that'd be very, very welcome about now.

A week ago, sirens sounded off county wide at 11:30pm. Brought in the dog because the local news was talking about hail the size of loose change. Not so.

The next day, no sirens, and we get hit with hurricane winds and blinding heavy rain. Power goes out at 8:30pm, and doesn't come back on until 1pm the following day.

It's been 110 here in northern California all week.

That's bad enough. On top of it, for much of the past two or three weeks, the freaking state has been ON FIRE, so the air is almost always smoky and disgusting and irritates eyes.

I actually kind of miss the Middle East right now. At least there, the heat was a serious problem, so most of the buildings had excellent air conditioning, and they weren't 90-95 degrees like my house. ...At least I don't have to walk a quarter-mile to the bathroom here.

No, 120+ is brutally hot.  109 is an average Phoenician summer day! ::D:

Although, apparently Lake Havasu (http://phoenix.about.com/cs/weather/a/weathertrivia.htm) got up to 128 degrees back in '94.  At that point you just sweat fully formed salt crystals.

Title: Re: Hello Dolly
Post by: Friday on September 15, 2008, 08:52:03 PM
Shouldn't this "I live in worse weather than you" contest be decided by who lives in the area with the largest variance between Winter and Summer, rather than just how hot it gets in Summer, or how cold it gets in Winter?

For example, someone who lives in a place where it's 30-100 (a range of 70) would win against someone who lived in a place where it's 50-115 (65) even though the latter is 15 degrees higher in Summer, because the former would have a bigger range for his/her body to adjust to, making the highs in Summer and the lows in Winter subjectively harder to bear.

This may, of course, still favor Thad as the person with the biggest right to complain. I have no idea how cold it gets in Arizona/Phoenix. And regardless, extreme highs/lows still have some merit, obviously.

I do know that my personal variance is around 60-65. I'm sure some people here could beat that. I'm not even interested in complaining, because I never really mind the weather/heat/cold due to my titanium exoskeleton undead nature cushion of dead babies alien physiology psychic projection field nanobots tits.

Anyway, no cheating by using night lows in the winter. You're not outside at 3 in the morning. Unless you are. In which case, you have my sympathy.

Title: Re: Weather
Post by: Cthulhu-chan on September 15, 2008, 09:10:42 PM
It can get as low as the mid 30s, up to the 110s.  Phoenix has achieved (barely) sub-freezing temperatures during the day, but it doesn't usually last long.  120+ usually only happens a few days out of the year, as well.  The concrete and asphalt sprawl seems to be trimming off the extremes, though.  Mostly in the favor of hot.

Brutally hot-and-wet is a different kind of brutal than brutally hot.

You know, I was going to stick a disclaimer on my post to the effect of "I am going to stick the first motherfucker to say 'but it's a DRY heat' in my oven"...

Though one is mostly uncomfortable and the other is likely to cause heatstroke and cancer if you spend more than a half hour in it.

...but it seems like you're agreeing with me.

For example, someone who lives in a place where it's 30-100 (a range of 70) would win against someone who lived in a place where it's 50-115 (65) even though the latter is 15 degrees higher in Summer, because the former would have a bigger range for his/her body to adjust to, making the highs in Summer and the lows in Winter subjectively harder to bear.

In other words, mild winters and mild summers are worse than milder winters and skin-melting summers?  Afraid I'm going to have to disagree.

Now, if the range is fully 100 degrees, you probably have a point.  But I don't think there's any place on Earth that matches that description.

No, you're right, those were bad numbers, and I pulled them out of my ass. How about -10 - 70 vs. 50-115? (Sub zero and mild summers vs mild winters and face melt summers.)

I don't know, the last year... I don't think we went sub-zero once? Maybe down to the 10 degree range, but sub zero is a bit of a stretch at best. Outside of the big ice storm for the most part most of the winter was spring weather. Summer was BALLS. My electric bill for a one bedroom apartment was pushing 200 in july from the AC, and my apartment was STILL uncomfortably hot.

Does it not count because it only gets up for two straight weeks? (Honestly, that's enough to even satisfy a girl like me.)

If you're in Oklahoma, I'd say the weather is the LEAST of your complaints.

Depends on where you live in Oklahoma.

Tulsa is not a bad place to live. You'd really be surprised. There's a lot to do here and the city is fairly progressive. We have a fairly sizable water park, excellent schools, a performing arts center that sees some pretty big acts and a fairly popular, if not world renowned opera. Now, the REST of Oklahoma, on the other hand...

Norman is nice too, though I don't understand how fortune magazine could possibly consider it the 6th best city in the country to live in. And yeah, checking the average temperatures and extremes, it seems I was exaggerating, wind chill here can be a bitch though.

@ Det: Yeah, my (modified) point was, if you have at least one extreme, and your variance is bigger than the other guy's, doesn't that mean you win? Or lose? Whatever.

Not necessarily.  Like I said, it's all about preference.  There are also many other variables like humidity and overall percipitation (snow is fine, weekly blizzards are not).

There is no winning or losing when it's all about subjective assessment and sheer physiology. I can run half an hour in a t-shirt and shorts at -10°C without getting winded or feeling the slightest discomfort, but I can't go two minutes at 30°C without getting dizzy and nauseated and panting so hard my throat feels like sandpaper.

Title: Re: Weather
Post by: Dooly on September 16, 2008, 09:34:49 AM
The weather in Washington is so mild that people complain when it gets up to 85 in the summer, and can't handle driving on the rare occasion in the winter when the roads ice up.

Also, every stereotype you've ever heard about Seattle and rain is completely true.  Definitely in the fall, at least.

Everyone has the right to complain about their local weather extremes. That's not a fucking competition. It's just that Thad felt like he had to remind everyone he is the God of the Flame, Son of the Sun. But we all already know that every morning he eats his Kellogg's Obsidian Flakes with purified phlogiston instead of milk and then goes to work riding his magma sled pulled by twenty-five snarling, smoldering hellhounds.

We had a bit of a rainstorm this weekend in Southern California. It didn't compared much to a blizzard or any other storm of actual merit, but 46° is pretty cold for around here. It got cold enough that I could actually see my breath in the air, which would've been neat if I weren't inside my home.

Time to move to a place with actual insulation, I'd say.
Title: Re: Weather
Post by: clutch on December 18, 2008, 03:32:56 PM
I was on #finalfight last night to bemoan my lack of manly mechanical know-how, the shortcoming having been brought to light by my ignorance of pilot lights. Without the furnace and without any insulation to speak of but the drywall and stucco (it's California, after all) the interior temperature of my house dropped to 45 degrees by nighttime. I tried  everything to warm the place up--I lit the stove burners, ran hot water in the shower, and turned on all the lights that I haven't yet switched to compact fluorescent bulbs--but I was barely able to crack 55 degrees the hot water ran out and started to get concerned over gas fumes. Not even an electric blanket managed to thaw my feet.

And so I headed outside to the little locker in which my furnace is mounted (according to the people in #FF, it's weird that the furnace is outdoors, but what do I know) to try my luck. I know the basic procedure: open the gas flow, hold down the button for the gas and then light the pilot--easy! Only thing I don't know is where the pilot is or what it looks like. Clever fellow that I am, my method was to hold down the button for the gas for a long time and then wave the barbecue lighter around, hoping it would catch. As you might have already guessed, there was a small fireball that took all the little hairs on the back on my right hand. BUT I HAVE HEAT

This seems the place to bitch about how weather has fucked me over, so it's time for CAIT'S STORY (Not to be confused with Katestory).

The scene: Western Washington, currently under the effect of what can only be called a freak snowstorm. I'm sure a foot of snow doesn't sound like much to some of you easterners, but even an inch is enough to bring Seattle and its many hills to a crawl. (http://www.johnnyjet.com/images/PicForNewsletterNZAuklandMarch30SteepHills.JPG)

The plan: Head home for Christmas, stopping in Seattle along the way to take my grad school test because they don't offer it anywhere closer. All is going as planned, until last week. Snow begins to fall, but everyone knows snow doesn't actually stick to the ground long enough to accumulate. But by some strange winter miracle, the snow was around to stay. And it keeps coming. Back home, in the rural location only known as The Island, the snow was too deep for people to get on or off The Island, so going home was out of the question. Still, I had tickets to Seattle, so I could at least take the exam... until they closed the testing site on Friday and Saturday due to the weather, with the worst storm to hit on Sunday. Clearly, there's no way they'd be open on Monday, right? I'd have to reschedule, but I could work with that.

Cue Monday morning! Despite the predicted new accumulation of snow and ice, the testing center opened anyway. Things that WERE cancelled: Greyhound, Amtrak, Airporter, and intercounty transit! But because the testing center had its doors open, despite the majority of prospective test-takers unable to reach it, I was found entirely at fault for not taking my test, and thus ineligible for a refund of my $250.

And that's my winter weather tale.

It has been fucking GORGEOUS these past several weeks.  Lows in the low 40's, highs in the low 70's.

I've been going to lunch at a park that's a 10-minute walk from my work.  The other day I was reading Lewis Black's book, and I got to a chapter where he lists reasons he believes in God on one page and reasons which he doesn't on the other.  (The latter mostly just names off STD's.)  The "reasons to believe" list includes "70 degrees, sunny, with a slight breeze", and I could definitely relate when I read that.

I still haven't turned on the heat in my room. Haven't touched that dial in over three years I reckon. Though it has been a little chillier since I switched to a video card that doesn't seem to randomly overheat. :nyoro~n:

I wouldn't mind the winter if it was just the temperature; I'm cool with the cold. The hassle is in the precipitation, when everything gets covered in snow or ice or icy snow. Of course there are the side-effects like all those water pipes bursting in Montréal, but that's not the winter's fault. I blame the people who could have fixed them but thought "ehh, they're over a hundred years old, they can take another year or twelve".

Weather forecasted for today was anywhere from 8-14 inches of snow.  Classes were not canceled, and right before I left for my 1:25 class, I called the stormline again just to check--"Afternoon classes have been canceled from 2:15 onward..."  Bastards.

The walk to class was not that bad; it was cold, but not really treacherous because there was only a few inches of snow on the ground and the sidewalks had been sort of cleared (there was only maybe an inch and a half of snow).  The walk home was much worse--the sidewalks were not cleared again, and in one hour there must've been at least another 2 inches of snow.  I had an assmar attack on the way home--HIGH FIVE!

My school was closed the last two days because of a threat of an ice storm.  Seriously, yesterday classes were canceled at 8 in the morning not because there was snow or ice on the ground, but because at some point there might be.  Today classes were put off until 4 because last night we had ice but right now it's all mostly gone.

Quote from: NYTimes
WASHINGTON — The capital flew into a bit of a tizzy when, on his first full day in the White House, President Obama was photographed in the Oval Office without his suit jacket. There was, however, a logical explanation: Mr. Obama, who hates the cold, had cranked up the thermostat.

“He’s from Hawaii, O.K.?” said Mr. Obama’s senior adviser, David Axelrod, who occupies the small but strategically located office next door to his boss. “He likes it warm. You could grow orchids in there.”

After awhile, it mellowed to 90's.

Two weeks ago, it hit the 80's.

Last week gave the 70's a miss and went straight to the 60's.  So, you know, we got to go from just-warm-enough-to-be-uncomfortable to just-cool-enough-to-be-uncomfortable, without the actually nice weather in-between.

This week it's back up in the 90's.

Even Arizona's getting in on the act.  They're calling this the worst winter storm we've had in 17 years; it's been raining buckets in my neck of the woods, with wind strong enough to slam me in a car door, and up north, where it's actually cold enough to snow, they're shutting down businesses, roads, whatever they can.  Tornado warnings, governor declaring a state of emergency...it's pretty wild.

I've had to cancel my plans to visit my mom this weekend for her birthday.  On the plus side, I won't have to do all that driving.

being from the north, when it snows in oklahoma i just kind of like to lean back and watch the hilarity. As soon as the snow starts, everyone rushes out, fills up their gas tanks, stocks up on bottled water and canned goods, and calls out from work. It's like they're gearing up for an endless winter that will leave the world covered feet deep in snow for the rest of their lives.

we call six inches of snow a blizzard out here.

Though, to be fair, MCE wasn't wrong in being unprepared, it literally went from 70 degrees to snow in less than 24 hours.

It is so goddamn beautiful right now that I have borrowed my girlfriend's laptop without asking and am typing this from my back porch.

This is why people live in this place.

Also, it is windy and one of the saplings in my backyard is slanty.  It is tied to a post with rope from my trunk, but the post is also slanty now.  In fact I believe it is actually curved now.

Really what it needs is another post.

My dizzy spells have mostly gone away as of this week.  Last week I was feeling good enough to ride my bike, but then I got dizzy and had to get a ride home.  Now, I think I could handle a roundtrip.

I would have tested this theory on Wednesday when I went to buy comics and coffee, but I was also buying beer and didn't want to carry that in a backpack for 3 miles.

Really the only downside is that the dog across the alley is an asshole and keeps barking when I cough or laugh.  (I was laughing because I was reading Deadpool while drinking a bomber of Guinness.)

However, I got to hand it to central Canada:  As much as I like to bitch that you guys wouldn't know hardcore weather such as the wet and windy coasts where ~100km/h weeklong windstorms are just another way of saying "November", not only do you impress me with an earthquake and a thunderstorm in the same day, but my sister in Southern Ontario one-up's me with an added tornado.

It's getting increasingly warm and muggy here. Last night had the strangest weather I've ever seen. For one thing, the heat was unbearable. For another, the entire town was covered with one giant cloud. The rain was thick but extremely light and didn't start until late at night. What I mean is that it looked like it was pouring, but if you stood in it you would barely notice it.
Most bizarre was the lightning. Lightning is extremely rare here, and there was more of it last night than I've ever seen in my life. Total. It started early in the evening and just kept going all night. Sometimes it was just flashes, but often it would be full-fledged chain lightning that would sometimes hit the ground and sometimes arc its way back up into the clouds. The weirdest part? No thunder. Absolutely none. The entire storm was completely silent.

We got a little rain last night, which was twenty minutes of fucking awesome.  I really cannot overstress how great rain in the desert is to anyone who didn't grow up here.

No rain today, meaning we got up to 107 degrees and 20% humidity.

Something's setting my girlfriend's allergies the hell off, too.  It was really rainy early in the year, which has led to a lot more pollen and seeds than usual.

So I'm supposed to be going on a date with someone tonight, and we didn't even bother to pass numbers.  Decided to shake off my rustic redneck/camping catalogue model look to look semi-decent...

Except now there's a thunderstorm out and a boom of thunder just shook my house's foundation.  I'm not seeing rain either for that matter, but sheets of water and streams of water that looks wade-able. 



Actually, for the Canadians, I would like to talk for a second about http://weatheroffice.gc.ca (http://weatheroffice.gc.ca)

The truth is that this is about good as a weather-site can get if you're looking for information about anything and everything weather on coastal areas and inshore.  It's good at projecting other weather such as Forest Fire smoke (http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/city/pages/bc-64_metric_e.html), poor air quality (http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/city/pages/bc-64_metric_e.html), and it has a pretty nifty radar page (http://www.weatheroffice.gc.ca/radar/index_e.html?id=WKR) for all regions of our nation if you feel bold enough to predict your own weather.  I imagine that the US geological survey has a similar site with a simple name... probably something like weather.gov and for all their GIS products I've been using for school lately, their strong remote sensing division can possibly do a mean prediction.

It's been a balls-nasty heatwave here this week. I could talk about our air conditioning not keeping up, even well into the evening, but you'd think Thad was posting.

Yesterday I just straight-up avoided going out but today I had to go do a few things. Burned my thighs on my bike's gas tank just from the heat (of course, the fact that it was empty didn't help... it got better after I filled it with some cool, cool gasoline) and my gas cap liner started meting again. The only time that's happened before was when I spent 10 hours driving to Baltimore in midsummer.

What the hell is the matter with the temperatures this month? After a summer full of heatwaves and horrible humidity, the temps dropped by twenty degrees on Labour day weekend, as if schoolteachers had flipped a switch that instantly changed the temperatures from "summer" to "late fall"*. Until yesterday, the temperatures had not recovered, only they shot back up to almost summer levels again... except they're dropping almost thirty degrees between today and this weekend! We'll be flirting with freezing temps by Sunday! Right now it's so gusty out that there that the trees are all horizontal.

I could put up with this I guess, if I wasn't taking my final-stage motorbike license finals this weekend! At least it's not raining.

What the hell.

*(I was extra pissed about that, since my favourite seasons are spring and fall... you'd think I'd be doing okay with two season per year, but neither season ever seems to come here in Toronto)

I actually got off work today because the store closed early. That never happens.

The store closed specifically because there's only one cab running today.

Let me reiterate in case that wasn't clear: there is one cab running. Not one cab company. One cab. There is only one guy in the entire city willing to drive people around in this storm.

...And he's probably making mad scratch.

There's a difference between clingy clothes and feeling like the entire city's stuffed up someone's rectum (well, okay Toronto feels like that all the time ahyukyukyuk).

And then you just vomit and fall over from dehydration and a general oxygen shortage instead.

That's true, but there's a diminishing rate of returns for most clothing. There's a limit to how well I can (reasonably) trap my warmth in -40 weather.

I can tolerate a broader range of cold weather than hot weather thanks to clothes, but there's still a point where our ability to challenge cold breaks down, and -40 approaches that barrier.

Predictions were not accurate (imagine that). We only came within 0.8 degrees of the previous record for this day, and within a couple degrees of the all-time record (today was 37.5, previous record for July 21st in Toronto was 38.3, all-time hottest recorded temp in Toronto was about 40.5).

We did however beat the all-time record for daily minimum temperature, with 26.8 at 6 am.

Was going to brush teeth & go to bed but first storm of season requires that I hang out on the back porch with a beer.

(I frightened the neighbor cat -- with whom I have an uneasy truce -- when I came out; she was sitting on the back porch avoiding the run and dashed out into it when I sat down.  I feel kinda bad about that, but really this is my porch and I'm kind of okay with the cat being afraid of me.)

I've never seen a summer like this.  It storms but it doesn't rain.  Just thunder and dust.  We've set a record for number of days over 110, and you can tell it hasn't rained just by looking at my year-over-year water bill.  And my lawn's STILL patchy.

On the plus side, even though there's still no rain with it, tonight we've got a very pleasant breeze and no dust.  Pity it's blown all the clouds away.

Still and all, too nice a night NOT to take my bike around the block.  I should go get on that.
Title: Re: Weather
Post by: Thad on September 10, 2011, 10:07:34 PM
Turns out I've still got sore muscles from taking it out yesterday (when it was about 100), but enjoyable nonetheless!

The spiderwebs that have overgrown the door to the storage room where I keep my bike, as well as the table and chairs on my back porch, are also a testament to what the weather's been like.

Lots and lots of spiderwebs on the front porch.  I'll wait until the weather cools down a bit more before I clean them up, since during the warm months it's good to have spiders around to eat insects.

(On the other hand, I really haven't seen a lot of flies, gnats, or mosquitoes this year, which I suspect is also a result of the drought.)

...what's a good way to clean up spiderwebs all over your front porch, anyway?  Hose?

We finally got a little bit of rain and a significant drop in temperature.

But can't enjoy it.  The air's full of dust and pollen, and the pressure change is wreaking its own havoc on our sinuses.

I've had a splitting headache for about two days (and I'm not taking pain meds because I'm worried about the condition of my stomach lately), and my girlfriend's allergies are so bad she can barely speak.  I've managed not to miss any work (largely because my job is, shall we say, uncomplicated), but she's not going to make it to work or class tomorrow.

Hopefully it'll get better over the weekend.  Would sure be nice to be able to go OUTSIDE now that we're finally getting 75-degree weather.

Well, we finally got us a real (non-dust) storm last night.  I got up this morning and noticed our back gate had blown open.  And it's a good thing it did, because if I hadn't gone out there to close it I wouldn't have noticed that one of the trees had blown over (the youngest, one that we planted maybe a year ago).

It's tied to a stake, which I couldn't get back into the ground with just my bare hands (and I had to get to work), so I set about looking for things I could use to prop it up.  We've still got a handful of furniture on the back porch, but mostly stuff I wouldn't want to get rained on.  Ultimately, though, I noticed we had a plastic folding chair, which is pretty much the perfect object for propping up a sapling without getting pushed over by its weight.

This year has been useless for snow. It's not supposed to be this nice in mid-January! It's like autumn is just overstaying its welcome. The trees are bare, there's hardly any birds, but it's not cold enough to wear a heavy coat. Yesterday it was so warm I was almost sweating.

It's finally cooling down and raining a bit here, now that we're at the tail-end of an unseasonably warm winter.  We've had highs in the 80's the last couple weeks, which is nice (aside from the air quality so bad I can't spend much time out in it) but does not bode well for the summer.

Yeah I was out in the sun at the meaninglessly named bluesfest here in Ottawa yesturday. It was the electronica heavy day so I saw Tokimonsta spin some stuff and then Koan Sound played a really great show. Heh, the one guy looked like Tom Cruise in Risky Business with his wayfarers on.

Also, there was this super young really dark skinned black teenager wearing a tupac shirt, a black chicago bulls baseball cap and big black plastic as fuck wayfarers and he was probably rockin' a wicked fade too. He was like early 90s man even though he must have been about 5 then. Hahah, he was the bomb.

Anyway, the weather, it was so fucking hot, I wished I'd brought my straw sombrero, but I didn't wanna be that tall lanky asshole with the big hat in front, so I just loaded up on the sun block. None the less, after Koan Sound was done Andrea was pretty much melting. I mean, it was an Ottawa crowd, so that means about 60% of the people there weren't dancing and only about 20% were dancing with any feeling and then like 10% of people were sitting on folding chairs. Oh Ottawa, "If you aren't the best band who's ever lived we refuse to have a good time." But we were dancing the whole time.

Then Diplo came on and he.... sucked, really hard. So we ended up actually just leaving and having naps before coming back in the evening to see Scrillex. Even in the dark it was still pretty fucking boiling. At least people were fucking dancing though... MOST PEOPLE. Fuckin' Ottawa crowds.

to everyone who has never been to Oklahoma city;

Despite having the largest square mileage of any city in the USA, I don't think any building is higher than a mailbox and most of them are held up on cinderblocks with a boot on the foundation. No offense to MCE, but the last time I was in OKC I drove down the wrong street and dueling banjos started playing with a ranchero accordian and trumpet accompaniment.

Well, I live in Norman right by campus which I think is much better than OKC. When I visit friends in OKC it's pretty trashy. Of course there are parts of Norman that are that way too, but not my neighborhood.  I am not very familiar with Tulsa but whenever I've been to Broken Arrow it's seemed nice.  If I had a car of my own here we could hang out.

There were fires in Norman on Saturday but nowhere near us, so I'm not sure how bad they got. Enough to see the smoke across town but not enough to smell it. The rain should be starting in Norman today or tomorrow

I never hear the "Global warming is real" from the same people who bitch during the winter. That said, the term is kind of accurate but also definitely misleading if you're not versed in the science. The thing is, global warming refers to a statistical increase in the average mean temperature of the Earth for a year. This temperature has remained more or less constant until recently the last few decades, when it start slowly going up. And the thing is, the actual average mean temperature will only go up by like 3 degrees, but this will trigger radical extremes on both ends of the thermometer. It's just problematic that when scientists were first addressing the problem to the public they used "global warming.

It just irks me to know end that people can try and deny the entire thing by noting that it is snowing. In the winter.

Oh hey there's a hurricane or something I guess? Anyway, situation is already as bad as it got water-wise for the last hurricane, so when the rain and wind actually starts things should get fancy.

Backyard hasn't gotten any high because it's coming in the basement now. (http://dl.dropbox.com/u/35466408/basementfirst.jpg) For the first picture the basement was empty. Now you can see the water line at the stairs. It's about three-four feet up (and above the pump already).

I'll try to keep taking pictures for as long as there's stuff left to see.

Up here we're expecting severe winds and rain in a few hours, lasting until tomorrow at least. We're way inland and we're probably not getting flooded, so I absolutely can't complain. The winds are getting funneled through the St-Lawrence valley though, which is a wide flat dip in the landscape (on a geographical scale) going almost completely straight for about one thousand kilometers, so it'll be a rare event to say the least and there'll still be some damage.

Ironically right now we're having the first genuinely gorgeous, sunny, warm day in a long time. But the wind's already beginning to pick up and you can definitely feel something heavy in the air. Even this little is already unsettling; I can scarcely imagine what it must be like to be in the brunt of it. I wish you safety at the very least, guys.

Nothing came of that, in the end. The water level peaked there, right before we lost power.

Now we're literally the only home without power on our street. So if it's a problem LIPA has to deal with it'll probably be over a week before we get it back since we're a stand-alone. On the other hand, we have power right now thanks to about five-hundred feet of extension cords running from our neighbors'.

None, because there wasn't one?  A circuit breaker in lower Manhattan failed in truly spectacular fashion, but luckily that's easier to deal with than replacing a giant custom-built transformer - and as it turned out later, it was relays getting submerged that caused the power outage in that immediate area rather than the breaker going up.

Still, most of the area without power isn't getting it back until the weekend at best.  Six million customers, give or take.  Hope the weather doesn't turn cold.

We've had this weird damn cold spell for the past couple weeks -- I'm sure there are plenty of people out there who are dealing with REAL cold weather, but a long run of freezing-and-below temperatures is pretty uncommon for Phoenix metro.  I've never had to leave my faucet on at night to keep the pipes from freezing before.

Finally seems to be turning around, though; today's high is 61 and tomorrow's is forecast at 71.  Debating whether to bike downtown for comics today or wait until tomorrow.

This winter has been straight up insane.

We'll get snow and cold, but we haven't gone longer than three weeks without hitting a run of days where the temperature goes up to 10°C or more and the fluctuations have been particularly nuts. The most dramatic instance has been the past two weeks, when the temperatures went from 5°C to -20°C, then back up to 14°C (yesterday) and now we've got a near-total whiteout and it's -4°C.

Title: Re: Weather

Classic's right, though.

Quote from: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/11/111115175819.htm
Princeton University researchers recently reported in the Journal of Climate that extremely sunny or cloudy days are more common than in the early 1980s, and that swings from thunderstorms to dry days rose considerably since the late 1990s.

[...]

The day-to-day variations also could affect what scientists can expect to see as Earth's climate changes, according to the researchers and other scientists familiar with the work. Constant fluctuations in severe conditions could alter how the atmosphere distributes heat and rainfall, as well as inhibit the ability of plants to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, possibly leading to higher levels of the greenhouse gas than currently accounted for.

Which is one more reason why all the nitwits saying "It's really cold!  That means there's no global warming!" are wrong.  Global warming means an increase in AVERAGE temperature, but it also comes with more extreme rain and snow.

In news that I'm sure surprises no one, it's freezing ass cold up here in Wisconsin.

Snow was fun, and between asshole plows and assholes parking on my side of the street I have to break up foot-and-a-half tall walls of snow tomorrow.

It's not even below freezing here (1°C right now, and it's 2AM), and the streets hardly have any snow at all. I'd take some of yours if I could, this is bizarre.

Its -4 F (-20 C) right now here and the wind chill temp is -16 F (-26 C). Shit is cold as balls.

Our lows have been in the mid-30's.  I know there are a hell of a lot of places that are colder, but not very many where it was also 100 degrees six weeks ago.

I am now beginning to ask serious questions such as, how long can my puppy hold her bladder?  I've been taking her out when I get up at 6 AM, but I bet I can wait an hour until the sun is actually up and both of us would be much happier.  (She's not much happier about going out when it's cold than I am.  In fact I've stopped getting up in the middle of the night to take her out after one particular 2:30 AM where I took her to the door and she looked at me, turned around, and went back to bed.)

On the other hand, if I took her out at 7 that would mean taking her out after I shower, which comes with its own set of drawbacks.

This may open a dark door to dark places, but supplementing going outside with puppy pads is sometimes the only viable option.

Nah, she's 6 months old and well past the pissing indoors stage.  If she really needed to go out, she'd let me know.

And then today we set a record high.

While it's nice to get some warm weather again after the misery of the last couple weeks, I wish that instead of caroming wildly between unseasonably cold weather and unseasonably warm weather we could just have, you know, regular seasonal weather.  Or even just what usually passes for it in these parts.

Besides, if you hear the phrase "record high temperature" and don't automatically flinch, then you're not from around here.

No buses, no power, no emergency lighting in the building (fun!), trees falling down as I durdled down the street due to the inch-thick cuirass of ice covering everything. Amusements abound!

Yeah, probably be a day or two before power comes back. Luckily the balcony will work as a freezer for a few days and we can cook on the BBQ if need be. WE HAVE THE FACILITIES.
Title: Re: Weather

Assuming the barbecue isn't also frozen.

Luckily, I picked up a bunch of candles.

-75?!?!

That's getting close to the lowest temperatures ever recorded on earth. IN ANTARCTICA (-89C).

EDIT: Oh that's F and not C. Right durr hurr. Not that that isn't cold as fuck. That's close to -60C

EDIT2: Oh and they're including wind chill, which is sorta cheating. Booooo. Still pretty bad though.
Title: Re: Weather
Post by: Smiler on January 05, 2014, 03:29:09 AM
The reason they're including windchill is because it's still going to be cold as balls without it. The windchill just tops it off as "Don't fucking go outside ever." A few retail store chains are even closing their stores for the day on Monday.

One thing is that really, once it goes lower than -25 or -30, you stop feeling the difference that much.

Because, you know, you're going to freeze to death very quickly if you stay out in that shit.

I skipped work this morning due to waiting at bus stop in actual -15 F, windchill -30 F with like 20 mph winds.


Saturday, it is supposed to be 40 F and raining.

A few people died yesterday in town. One guy was walking from the bus stop home and was found frozen one the ground.

I was a delivery driver yesterday. My car got stuck in a pile of snow due to a guy parking in the middle of a one way street and just leaving his car. So I walked the rest of the way to the delivery. Not far, a few blocks. But the snow was up to my knees and by the time I got to the house, I could no longer feel pain. I warmed up in their house for a minute (they were a very nice, half naked family) and by the time I got back my car, I was just thinking over and over "Yup. This is how I die. In a shitty t-shirt advertising a company I hate."

Actually the "So this is how I die" thought happened a lot in the last few days. Driving with morons has made life fun.
Title: Re: Weather
Post by: Mongrel on January 07, 2014, 03:46:11 PM
Wait, so the guy walking home... did he fall and black out? Was it an older guy?

I mean, cold is cold, but even that seems a little extreme. Even in totally crazy freezing temps it takes some time for a whole human body to completely freeze.
Title: Re: Weather
Post by: Lottel on January 07, 2014, 04:07:28 PM
My mother told me they brought him to the hospital she works at and the doctor said he was frozen and had been for hours.

I don't know more than that. But most of the people who died yesterday were pretty old.

Basically anything sticky or anything which retains heat better is going to be way worse than boiling water.

Actually my favourite thing about that graphic is how far off Winnipeg's location is (it's in the south of the province, but whoever made that image just put a dot dead in the centre of Manitoba).
