On the western shores of the Caribbean, it is good to see that, with the peak of the 2014 hurricane season now behind us, we still have not been threatened by a hurricane. Thank God. Changing the subject slightly, I hope to be in London in the next 10 days or so. I would be grateful to hear from folks in London how cool the weather is out there at this time. Are sweaters and jumpers already very much in use at this stage?

Well, finally, we, in southeast Alaska, are to have winter- a winter storm watch is on for the next 24 hours.

Given the misery this winter's weather has brought others, I know it is insensitive of me to be glad for our new snow- but I do like seasonal weather. I don't want winter storms in April, for instance, nor heavy snow weighting down trees still in full leaf.

I don't require perfection, you see, but I do like excellence. :)

We have learned to be accustomed to being nearly absolutely protected from the vagarities of nature. No protection is 100% and we no longer take it very well when mother nature practices "tough love." When I lived in a tent, (which I actually have done, btw) there were many challenges, but one of them was not fear of busted water lines and the expense of repairing the damage. Once the nasty weather event was over, it was over. I would prefer to not live in a tent again, but there definitely are advantages if one takes a broad view.

I realize that going underground wouldn't be feasible in flood-plain areas. But there are nearly always nearby areas of higher ground.

Actually, I am not really kidding. I have often thought of it in hot desert areas, like Death Valley and the Mojave.

The greatest hazard, it seems to me, would be the reptiles that would seek to share one's cool space.

From another thread...

From: gnu - PM
Date: 12 Feb 14 - 05:34 AM

I sit on the lap of winter. As I type, it is -20C about 2m away. The only thing between myself and frostbite is an R12 wall and nuclear power. But, it is gonna warm up... so it can snow. Wild predictions abound in the media, delivered in ominous hype by weather terrorists who desperately need ratings. Environment Canada says "... we could get some "heavy at times" snow, maybe some rain, and expect strong winds in coastal regions... we'll see." Jonna Brewer of the CBC Radio show Early Morning just said that she heard as much as 55cm and high winds. 'Wailin' Kalin Mitchell of CBC NB TV was in fine form last evening and even said 80km winds. I haven't made a final forecast for Thursday night and Friday personally but my preliminary forecast is "It's February in New Brunswick. I need a turnip for my chicken stew."

From that same thread, moments ago...

Well talk about Mudcat Mojo! Downgraded to about 20cm of snow tomorrow eve/night, 70kph, then 30mm of rain, and + (yes +!!!) 7C on Friday. Snow Saturday but not much.

Thanks!

In Juneau, Alaska, we haven't had any new snow since January 5. For the last week or so it's been nippy out - down to 1F this morning - but until then we've had a lot of mild temps and just plain wet.

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...

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...

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.
