Apparently (ie I heard it on the local news) West Yorkshire generally averages 2" of rain in August, yet on Tuesday alone we got 4".

We have a word which sums up the British weather perfectly, "changeable".
Some years ago I worked for a large import company selling cheap novelties and gift items. One such item was a barometer/clock which was a popular seller wholesaling at around £5. It wasn't untill I dropped one in the warehouse that I noticed that the only working part of the barometer/clock was the battery operated clock, the barometer was just a dial with a glued-on plastic needle set to "changeable".
I have often imagined how many people have tapped the face of their barometer/clock uttering "Changeable again Doris!, we'd better take an umberella, just in case!"
In the U.K. there's not a more accurate barometer!

It's too damned hot here on Vancouver Island. It's after 8:00 PM and it's still in the 90s.........bitch, bitch bitch...whine...whine...This is not normally a climate where air conditioning is required, but I sure would appreciate it tonight and so would the dogs. I think we'll probably sleep in the basement, to try and find some relief. Wait, I think I felt a breeze cropping up now, off the Sooke Basin, which might cool us down by midnight. Oh dam! it's gone again.

I popped in on my 84 year old Mum this afternoon, to see how she was faring and it was 96 degrees inside her wee mobile home, but it was hotter than that outside. I did manage to talk her into having a sponge bath and got the place more comfortable, by getting more air moving with her bathroom fan and the fan over her stove.

Its supposed to stay like this for another day or so, before we get back to more seasonable temperatures in the mid 70s. Fire hazard still extreme, promised rain, awhile back, only settled the dust.

Fly to Seattle. Whoop it up with folks like Deckman there. Drive across to Spokane and on into Idaho, stopping to party with Rangeroger up that way. On into Montana (by the way, you're sort of following the Lewis and Clark trail when you hit Idaho from Washington) and take I-15 down south. Stop by Pocatello here; I'll probably be able to find a place for yout to sleep and we can always water the soup.

Keep on South, through Utah and into New Mexico. From New Mexico, cross into Arizona and into California. Amos is in San Diego. Northward along the California coast; lots of folks around San Francisco. Onward through Northern California (don't forget to see the redwoods!) and into open mike/Joe Offer country. Portland has a bunch of 'catters, and north of there is Seattle again. A short flight from Seattle is Anchorage.

A few thousand miles, a few months -- what the heck, eh?

Oh, yeah -- brucie's just up the road in Alberta, and there are the western Canadian 'catters, too.

I saw Sea Otters off the coast at Big Sur. One of the highlights of my life. We were passing through. Too poor to actually stay at the place. We watched one banging clam shells on it's special rock that it held in it's arms. Then it floated on its back eating the clam. I was entranced.
Mike and Rapaire thank you for the information. We do plan to hire a car. Alas! we'll be a bit restricted as to where we can go - because of the cost and because True-love will probably never be able to visit again. He has a dear friend in New Mexico so that's where we'll be heading. We will try to see lots of wild places on the way. I am keen to see desert wildflowers and grassland areas. Also as many Mudcatters as possible - wild or otherwise! If they are willing. We are looking at April next year so there's time to plan it all. Joy

We have a pod? family? collection? of river otters that we can watch go about their business out on the wetlands dike trail in Juneau. And as Alaska Mike said, sea otters can be found in many different spots (One Christmas day I watched three or five- hard to tell- cavorting in Gastineau Channel right here at home) and reliably so in the kelp beds in the Hoonah area. They look like nothing so much as huge upside down Cairn terriers.

I'm originally from Oregon and I do like Oregon. It's just that I like Alaska better.

Ya gotta go here, Joybell. Last time I was up that way they had a video camera out on a island where the only inhabitants were sea lions. You could watch 'em from your hotel room, too. See Seward, see sealife, see?

It's only my poor opinion, but EVERYONE should visit Alaska, and NOT on one of those bloody damned cruise ships! Fly to Anchorage and rent a vehicle! Plan your trip in advance, dammit! You don't let someone else play your concerts, do ya? So why are you going to let them plan your trips? (I'm a bit vehement about that, perhaps.)

Hi Joybell, I didn't see any Sea Otters at Sea World. They had a cute river otter named Opie that performed in a show with 2 sea lions named Clyde and Seymore.

We saw dolphins, pilot whales, orcas, sharks, sea lions, penquins, polar bears, and so many different kinds of fish it staggers the imagination.

But if you want to see sea otters, you will have to come visit Alaska. They are still quite plentiful and easily spotted on any of the many sight-seeing cruises that venture out past the coastline.

80s to 90s. Yesterday we had OVER TWO (2) INCHES OF RAIN in less than a hour! Flash flood warnings then, and today from 3 to 9 pm. This is the second weekend with a delugic downpour. Not that we don't need the rain, but I'd rather it came in a gentle soaker over several days.

They say that there is a moist front and a drier front colliding over us.

Wildflowers. They're spectacular! Pale yellows, azure blue lupines, deep yellows, firey Indian paintbrush, purplish fireweed, all against the silver-green sage. Sometimes a magpie will flash black and white among them, or a red-winged blackbird will flit along. Even a golden or bald eagle or a kestrel can sometimes be seen. The best time to see them is probably mid-June. (And for a real treat, see Craters of the Moon National Monument in flowertime. All that dwarf buckwheat and such against the lava and basalt -- fabulous!) Maybe I'll see if I can have some pictures posted.

Fire hazard extreme here in the hills of Metchosin on Vancouver Island. The temperature has been in the mid 80s for a couple of days, but has cooled tonight to a comfortable 66. Weather forecast is for showers or a possible thundershower. Sure hope the forecasted rain does more than just wash the dust off the cedars and swordferns, but I won't hold my breath. Its always dry here in the summer, it's the unusually dryer winters, the past few years, that is most worrisome.

The Blue Mountains, just west of Sydney, snow Sat. night but since then just cold, wet & miserable.

My wife tells me it's some freak conditions bringing cold from Antarctica in unusual quantities. To be honest it's no colder here than most winters, but I believe the snow has gone to places where it doesn't normally go, and there have been some very strong winds in Sydney.

Meanwhile there are some pretty ugly bushfires in America, and floods in New Zealand, I hear.

Today was nice, 80's F, cool breeze. Last Tuesday night we had a severe thunderstorm, the one that rode the jet stream all the way across Indiana and Kentucky, 80-mile-an-hour winds. I was caught out in it, did some stupid things, but survived. We were without electricity for three days, many homes in Kentucky have been out for a week.

We've also had an extremely wet Spring and Summer. My garden, the first I've grown in ~25 years, is doing well. I've been picking three 40-foot rows of beans nearly everyday for several weeks. I've made over 30 quarts of bread-and-butter pickles, and I already have two pumpkins that are several feet in diamter!

windy and wet in Wash DC...has been a VERY wet Spring & Summer so far...with last year being one of the wettest years on record. We got two days with no rain, so I went out & mowed grass, but it was so deep that it was still damp from LAST rain, so it gummed up the inside of mower. The plus side is that it is a bit cooler than usual on average...(but the humidity never slacks!)

Odd really - every day I wake up and think something along the lines of 'turned out nice again' as I look out of the window - I don't pull the curtain across the middle of the bay window as it faces the street and is not overlooked - our house is the tallest and at the top of the slope - it is on a ridge so the ground drops away both sides. Downstairs in the back there is a wall of green, apple trees, the loganberry, a grape vine, a holly tree, upstairs we can see Poole harbour between the houses further down the slope, and the Purbeck Hills beyond.

Here on the South coast of England the climate is mild, snow is usually just a few flakes once or twice a year, and it melts on contact with the ground. We have a few storms, but nothing that would ever make me think it is a miserable day. The positive energy of a storm makes me want to go out and dance, but most days the sun comes out for some of the time - maybe its like the half full/half empty glass - my days are as sunny as my own disposition.

There are such severe snowstorms in some of the snowfields that they have had to close quite a few skilifts.

High winds here in Sydney, roofs off buildings, trees down, the harbour is too rough for the Manly ferry to run, there is snow in places that have not seen snow for years. More storms, rain and wind expected for the next couple of days too. The Weather Bureau has put out a warning for "Hazardous Winds and Damaging Surf Conditions". Well, we DID need rain.

Well I just re-read my original post from 31 July 2001, and it's deja vu all over again [tautology] We've just had the wettest June for 36 years, and July is heading down the same path. Our summers here are definitely getting wetter, with the sunshine hours down by a long way, plants in my garden suffer from wind burn regularly, and that never used to happen in summer. It's true what they say, "The world's going to hell in a hand basket"
