Windy and heavy rain tonight here in southeastern Alaska. Snow is almost all gone. Forecast to be warm and wet the rest of the week.

Probably not related but we have a lone bear roaming the town checking bird feeders and garbage cans instead of holing up as he is supposed to. He is reported to be unprosperous looking, rather scruffy. Poor guy isn't going to make it, in all likelihood.

Last Tuesday was 10°F with a vile wind, yesterday was supposedly 50ish, but the "real feel" was close to freezing -- and it was foggy, slushy and spitting rain on top of Friday's snow.

Today is sunny and close to 50°F. Still windy, though. Most of the snow is gone. Forecast is for mild weather. Go figure...

Plumbing is fixed!

In the news today, JennieG, were stories of Australian wildlife perishing from the heat. For instance, it is said that near Pilbara on "the rugged northwest coast" temperatures have reached 122-123F and that animals, ranging from kangaroos and emus and parrots to bats have died by the thousands. I imagine that's hundreds of miles from you but is your wildlife also being overwhelmed?

Another heatwave on the way.....expected temp today, 36 C. Currently just after 1.15pm, and already 35. For the rest of the week - 35, then 36, 38, 39, 39, 39. As a comparison, 36 deg C is 96.8 deg F. No rain is forecast for the near future, or probably the distant future either.

No matter whether you use C or F for your degree measurement, it's bloody hot.

We've had it all this week. It was comparatively warm on Monday, then Tuesday was down to about 10F with a brutal wind. But sunny. Wednesday wasn't much different, perhaps a little warmer, but that's when my bathroom pipes burst.

I'm waiting for the plumber right now -- bathroom water has been shut off since Wednesday (which I can live with -- we have a composting toilet). Most of the damage was the pipes under the bathroom window, but it extended into the area under the sink. The problem there is that it's accessed through the closet in the bedroom...which I've been avoiding for several years because of flying squirrel damage. Okay. It's now safe for the plumber and I've not only cleared the floor TO the closet, but shovelled out the closet itself. And this will make it easier for me to do other things that need to be done. (If only the plumber will get here...)

It snowed all yesterday but it was pretty much a nuisance snow -- no real accumulation. Just made driving complicated. So I decided against the 55 mile round trip drive to The Press Room session late afternoon despite REALLY needing a music fix. (And to be with friends...) And freezing rain was predicted before I'd be coming home so that influenced me, too. And the fact that cleaning out that closet and schlepping heavy things down the stairs had worn me out. I was sound asleep in my comfortable bed before the session was over.

AccuWeather says it's supposed to be up to 50F today...but then, more realistically, says the "Real Feel" is about 36F. It's raining. And foggy. And it feels COLD, not 50°. And damp.

I'm feeling overextended...a bit depressed...and the weather is certainly NOT helping! And I can't even hunker down with a bowl of popcorn and episodes of "Stoney Burke" because I'm waiting for the plumber...

mg, I picked up a rain jacket this fall at a Columbia outlet store that works well for my climate in winter, where temps most often range from the 40's to upper 50's during the day, and it is hard to find a happy medium with respect to dressing in layers and staying dry on wet days. Made from their Omni Heat reflective fabric. Waterproof, breathable, and reflects one's own bodyheat very effectively. Does all it promises to do. Check it out.

Near 70 F. In the single and teen digits 5 days ago. Currently under severe thunderstorm warning and tornado warning. Dark as twilight right now and the wind is raging. The weather radio alert is going off every 2 minutes as storms move across the Piedmont. Wish it was practical for the alarms to not cover such a large area. Ditches and gutters overflowing.

Bear cub comes romping up to his mother and says, "Mommy, what kind of bear am I?"

"Why, you're a polar bear, honey," sez his mother.

The cub wanders off, looking thoughtful.

After a bit, comes back and asks, "Mommy, what kind of bear did you say I was?"

Again, she say's "Well, you're a polar bear."

Again, the cub shambles off, looking thoughtful.

Then he comes back and asks once more, "What kind of bear did you say I am, Mommy?"

"You're a polar bear, honey. Why do you keep asking?"

Windchill temp (WC) here is only -22C but it's -11C so it's time we invented a new "feels like" temp scale for the interior of a building. I'd suggest the Kee Kee* (KK). Such a scale would indicate the perceived effect of the combination of ambient temp and wind on the average indoor temp over time by taking into account the measure of the rate of heat loss from a building and the proportional length of the heating system cycle above and below the thermostat setting, that is, the the ratio of the length of time during which the interior temp is lower than the thermostat setting to the length of time above it. Perhaps a specific example would more clearly illustrate the premise for my proposal than a continuation of the discussion in the above manner. For such purpose, I will use an example which relates to my experience as I type.

Heating system : central electric forced air; cycle +/- 2C

Case 1 : -20C, -30WC.
Cycle off - 15 minutes
Cycle on - 20 minutes

Case 2 : -10C, -30C.
Cycle off - 10 minutes
Cycle on - all fuckin day












* Kee Kee Keeriste it's cold!

"Good for something"... well, if your beer NEEDS to be cold to be palatable.. *grin*.

Here in the metro Wash DC area, we are durned chilly at about 110F, but no snow and no major issues... (except for a few old water mains cracking and some very cold repair crews).

I am not exactly used to this in recent years, but 60 years ago I walked a paper route in Wichita, Kans. in 20F.... a time or two. I did shopping just BEFORE the Big Chill, so we can stay inside till it eases a bit on Thurs.

For North Texas we're threatened with rolling blackouts or brownouts today because of the high demand for electricity - it got to 13o last night and is only going to come up to 32o during the day, then way down again tonight. We're not accustomed to so much of this, and temps this low are quite rare.
