Dark and drear again in Calgary. Light snow. About nine inches here last weekend, a foot more added at my daughter's place bordering Kananaskis Park, she has to use the big diesel truck to get feed to the horses.

Over 450 cm base at the Fernie Ski area, B. C, on the mountain back of my younger son's place.

Spring might come sometime in May. If we're lucky.

This is my first spring in England, and I've been told that the weather is quite exceptional for this time of year - day after day of sun, increasingly warm temperatures, stretching on as far as one can see over Easter! I'm loving it, and my garden is loving it too!

However we'll get a dose of the cold when we spend Easter in Aberdeen - well, colder than it is here in Somerset anyway. There is so little rain around, that we have had to make arrangements with a neighbour to come in and water things while we are gone.

It's interesting - we had the snow and freezing fog in winter earlier than usual, and now spring has sprung with a vengeance with nary a sign of the occasional frost that usually plagues this place in April. Looks like summer will be early too. It almost feels like summer already with temps regularly reaching 20 degrees or higher!

Pouring rain, thunder booming, warning of possible damaging wind. Beautiful earlier today other than kinda hot, upper 90's. We had a little adventure on Monday, though. Packed up the tent and went to go camping at a resort just southeast of Battle Creek. By the time we got there, things looked threatening enough that we took a lodge room instead of tenting. Just as well. We were in the indoor pool in mid afternoon when we got a tornado warning. Everyone got into the clubhouse johns, and we listened to a few minutes of nice loud roar.
No one hurt, and little or no damage to the clubhouse, but trees uprooted or snapped off all over the grounds including within a few feet of the clubhouse, tents ripped up, at least one camper turned over. Taped off areas with power lines down in a snarl. The weather on Monday was beautiful, but we had to find our way into the lodge and around in our room with a flashlight after dark.

For Saturday the 28th of May, we had a high of 51 F and a low of 27 F. Sunday was a high of 59 and another veggie-killing frost. The forecast for the next 7 days suggests the mid-to-upper 60s again.

Normal high in the sagebrush desert this time of year would be upper 70s, at least 25 degress warmer than it was Saturday.

A multi-vortex tornado (thought to be EF-1) is now about 10 miles east of Springfield, Massachusetts, crossing the Connecticut River, over Rt. 91 on its way toward Sturbridge, Boston, New Hampshire, and Maine. It seems to be traveling at a velocity of 85 miles per hour.

There are reports of trees down and roofs (rooves for gnu)off. Traffic in the area is at rush hour levels.

Anyone in that general path please hunker down, take cover, be wise.

Now thought to have been an EF-3 tornado cruising through Springfield, MA. Appears to have traveled a 17 mile wide, through Springfield with much building and tree damage. It ran straight into Sturbridge, but we haven't seen any reports regarding the damage there.

A second, possibly weaker tornado came through Chicopee, a bit northwest of Springfield, now moving just north of Springfield toward Wilberham. Major damage is being reported in several Massachusetts towns.

Here in Midcoast Maine we've had some severe thunderstorms with an estimated 11,000 lightning strikes and hail from 2 1/2" up to the size of a baseball. At the moment we have sunshine; after several strong storms including heavy rain, strong winds, hail, lightning and thunder. Birds swooped back to our feeders as the winds died down, and tree toads and peepers, restarted their evening chorus.

Well, the tornado warnings certainly got our attention, but all we got was thunder-and-lightning (of a strength that certainly got our attention) and wee little hail pellets. My daughter lives closer to Springfield, MA (in Northampton, Kat!) and was sent home early on her first day of work because the city ordered all non-essential workers of all professions to seek shelter!
...she lives in a 3d floor walkup but managed to locate the basement (it's a new-to-her rental). Noho was spared, but several other towns were slammed.

There are some mighty impressive videos. My connection is wonky right now but lots are on youtube- or "google" springfield ma tornado and you can see it in action!

My heart is with all those affected.

Very confusing to our cruiseship touri- people with their heavy jackets tied around their hips, hair tied back off the neck. This is not the kind of weather they were warned against.

A new record for the 02 July date appeared for Phoenix Arizona yesterday: 118 F (47.8 C). The report at msnbc pictured people at the town jail - the "Tent City Jail" - trying to keep cool under the canvas.

Of course there will likely be a few warmer days there next month, as it's still early in the summer season.

My town (Wichita KS) has bent the record for "consecutive days above 100F in July," currently reporting it as 13 days straight in the nearby counties, with another few expected before the string breaks off for a couple of days; but we've had a (rather sparse) sprinkle or two to take the edge off the heat.

The "real record" for consecutive >100F day stretches in Wichita was in August a few years ago, when I believe we ran something like 42 days in a row. I recall helping a few old ladies (mostly 20-somethings, I suppose' but I was only about 17 then so they looked pretty "mature") across the street because the asphalt pavement got so soft it sucked their shoes off. (I picked a small one to carry, but a couple of other "leaners" needed help prying their shoes out.)

Well, we don't curently have much heat here in Juneau, Alaska. Today it's been in the low 50sF and tomorrow is forecast to have a high of 59. With rain. It may be a soppy parade.

We always have our Independence Day fireworks at midnight the previous night (At midnight it's as dark as it's gonna get) but most likely the clouds will affect the spectacle. They are hanging pretty low.

A number of Juneau musicians are not in town- in Colorado, Tennessee and Washington State - and I imagine they will feel summer heat tomorrow.

Well, I'll be kicked! As my father used to say.

Turns out that we had beautiful weather for the parade (just ended), sunny, a little breezy, no rain. Don't know what will happen the rest of the day; showers are forecast. The only times I've ever gotten sunburnt in Juneau was on July 4ths- could happen again, I guess.

And last night's fireworks went off fine. The spokesman was quoted as saying that they prefer clouds at about the 1500 foot level, (which is what we had) that it makes the sky darker so the bursts are brighter, and also because a cloud cover holds the blasts better so they are louder.

So I guess it is the best of all possible worlds. :)
