What's the weather like where you are?


Recommended Posts

WINDY!!!  Wind gusts in town of 50-75 mph all night.  Wind gusts in the mountains hit 116 mph!  Funny, when this happens on the coast they call it a major hurricane, but here in Colorado it's just called a winter day.

Lost our power for 21 hours the other night when a storm blew through and the whole town went dark. Fuckin' weird and pitch black. I could see one light in the distance and it must have been on battery. First time I had to fire up my new generator, so at least I had TV with my dvd player and I watched The Magnificent Seven. Safeway and QFC were open as they also have generators, so I able to buy some coffee.

Tropical Storms range in sustained winds from 39-73 mph. It’s not a major Hurricane unless the sustained winds are 111 or higher.

From what I’m seeing, your storm is being labeled a blizzard. With that said a 116 wind gust is pretty spectacular and probably a bit scary, if you’re on those mountains. Be safe, I know you ride your bike to work. That’s probably a bit sketchy in those conditions.
 

Beautiful January day here in central Florida. Sunny and high was about 65. These next two weeks are usually our coldest...then comes the February warm up!

Sunny and warm today here in the "Golden State" down here in SoCal aka: the center of the universe. I think it was in the mid '80s.

California being the REAL "sunshine state", not that low rent hurricane and alligator filled mosquito swampland called Florida.

hehehe....

Heh, yea I know it's defined as SUSTAINED wind.  I was more or less venting because of the (as you pointed out) bike ride home against those western winds!  Plus, we don't have to worry about tidal surges and monsoon rains like you guys on the coasts when you get those winds!

 

Thanks for the well wishes.   There was one gust that hit me and I came to a complete standstill and thought twice about just walking my bike home!

Bleedin' freezing. 0c all day. Been sunny but just been outside to get some logs for the burner and I felt like Oates in the Antarctic. Rumours of a lot of snow this weekend. Best check the skins and wine situation.

90 degrees today in SoCal.  Was out walking in shorts and t shirt getting a tan again today on my walk.

Rain of biblical proportions. Heavy non stop for 2 days. Had to bail out a neighbours next door + 1. House flooded and patio under 3 ft water. Fire Bigrade there last night pumping out water for 3 hours. I have never seen anything like it. :Thinking:Yes I have. Every fucking year.

light rain all day; just a grey and somewhat cool day. On a day like this is when I like to fire up the live No Quarters...

That’s this morning down here. Yesterday was spectacular. Now, gray and dreary with light rain. Free water for the grass, plants and my bank account. :D

Hot and steamy. The humidity is brutal, but the plants and lawn are eating it up. Not looking forward to mowing the lawns on Sat.

But still, I am with you Chilly, I hate the cold.

HOT with showers. The road out front was too hot to walk on, and a rain shower threw up plenty of steam. It looked quite amazing. It's a lot more like it's the "tropics" this summer here.
