    Colder than usual, it seems
    Early December has really been cold in much of the USA. KC hasn't seen a day above freezing in almost 2 weeks. The beer in my garage is perilously near the freezing point. Storm Electra may give us out first snow Friday night before she moves east to wallop Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York and the northeast. I have a nephew near Bozeman, MT: he sent me a photo of the Gallatin River completely frozen and jammed-up with ice chunks....brrr

    I was whining
    about how cold it is in the Bay Area (which it is, though a bit warmer today) until my niece in Montana said it was -2 at 1 in the afternoon at her place.

    forecast: "signifigant shrinkage"...
    high temps in the single digits and strong winds will make it feel like -20F to -35F for the next couple of days and nights. That damn northwest wind cuts right through the clothes.

    For the weather! California has a more than moderate drought on it's hands. Last year there was about 1% and this year it is a 28% area constituting drought in the Sierra Nevada. The rains just aren't getting far enough South to make up the snow pack. Better hope for those Pineapple Expresses to start lining up. (Not the Seth Rogen kind!) This is the life-blood drinking water for SF & LA.

    Typhoon Haiyan LIVE
    Typhoon Haiyan LIVE: Philippines mass burials begin as corpses clog roads. Nobody had ever heard of Tacloban, a coastal city on one of the islands that make up the 7000 that comprise the Phillipines. Despite the islands acting as a barrier to the sea, a wall of water piled up with the 190 mph winds as the superstorm piled up a storm surge that completely devastated the flimsy buildings of the city. Scenes of interviews with the survivors were harrowing, people climbing trees to survive and such. Current total is 2200 confirmed dead with many thousands more missing. Although the hurricane season was below normal in the US this is a definite sign of things to come with a one foot rise in sea levels in the last 100 years. The ocean has been absorbing the fossil-burning based heating of the atmosphere but nobody has an idea how long this can go on. Low-lying areas everywhere are in peril. Flood insurance will either not be offered or become so expensive as to be prohibitive. Rebuilding the Jersey Shore may have seemed like the "American Way" but it now seems to be a fool's errand. Better to make a realistic survey of the shoreline and give way to the ever-encroaching sea and make a stand with huge sea-walls. That seems to be the more realistic path. I think it's time or a summer holiday at Hatteras National Seashore before this great area disappears and is reclaimed by the sea. It could have all been so much different if the industrialized companies had compromised with the developing countries in the late 80s, early 90s. Nothing but the karma of environmental degradation due to greed is left to harvest.

    Northern New England Peaks
    The Tri-State area of NH/VT/ME peaked today with it's foliage. Without the usual couple of cold-weather spikes the colors haven't been as vivid this year but the artist's palate, fully unfolded before my eyes, is enough to make me weep for life as it comes to this part of the never-ending cycle.

    September pulls up a 90 degree day
    And the plants on the deck are beaming beautifully. September is often not thought of as a beach month but it serves that purpose admirably with it's lack of crowds, out-of-season prices and, occasionally, long stretches of beautiful weather. Today would have been a pick day for cropping.

    Had record warmth yesterday -- 94 degrees Fahrenheit, an all-time record for the State. It might be the last year to experience the state as it was before the last ice age.

The other end of Andalucia is adventurous, as ever! Tell me about this Andalucia holiday Thursday-all I know is have 2 days off, but have no idea what we are celebrating. Was stormy here the end of last week, and on Saturday, but now is around 25 in the afternoon, and SUN SUN SUN. Can leave my windows open all day and all night now. And am digging the strawberries in the fruit shops!!!!!!!!!!********************************** Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone, you will still exist, but you have ceased to live.

It is beautiful here now. Warm days and cool nights and badgers can emerge from hibernation. Last week I sat in the garden in shorts and T shirt while my wife cut my hair! Last night soft steady rain to refresh everything and water the fruit trees we planted. Many flowers out now and some birds singing. Peregrine falcons and ravens getting frisky and aerobatically displaying in the gorge. It can still turn nasty up here right up to April but we ain't thinking about that As they say in the home country "the saps a-risin' " he he

no it is an English badger that ate too many mushrooms ....we have wild badgers here in France (I see their footprints often) but they are very shy solitary creatures..it is only in the UK that they live colonially and are so easy to see. For anyone in the US this is a Eurasian Badger (Meles meles) as opposed to the North American Badger (Taxidea taxus) which appears from my PMs to be associated with Wisconsin. btw many of us have still not forgiven Walt Disney for portraying Friar Tuck as the wrong type of badger in the Robin Hood cartoon.....;-)

most of the badgers i have seen have been roadkills but we were leaving a friends house here one night and a badger was running down the road in front of the car, it didn't try to run off the side of the road perhaps this is a new Badger exercise regime Bob - - - - - - - - - - - - - - http://spanishsunshinedaydream.blogspot.com/ http://www.facebook.com/photos.php?id=633338979 Spanish Jam

"...oh it surely looks like rain." I don't mind the rain, especially when I have things to keep me occupied. The best rains I like are in summer. You know, the rains that come and go quickly followed by mildly sweet heating of the sun. During the summer, after it rains it can be quite humid, so after the sun has set and the rain has fallen and the air is humid ... this is perfert for those gigantic bubbles ... yes bubbles so big you float away in one. If you have ever experienced these bubble wands, you know what I am talking about. Oh, how I am looking forward to summer.

Is hot as the blazes for early March. Better said for my own personal experience with early March. Around 30 degrees celcius in the sun during the day.

Mucho sunshine, temps in the 70's and a 12:30 tee time!It's a very grateful golf day for me! Gonna crank E72 all the way there, should be just finishing Jack Straw when I pull into the parking lot. I'm always amused by the reactions I get to my appearance from the random people I end up playing with. They've usually stopped scratching their heads after the first couple of holes. I ain't all that good, but I ain't all that bad either. Every once in a while, I ain't half bad at all... Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.

not raining now, |The sun makes the odd appearance through holes in the cloud. It is warm though, lots of the wild flowers out really early, i hope it doesn't mean a really hot summer. We still need some more rain, to build up supplies if we have a hot summer bob - - - - - - - - - - - - - - http://spanishsunshinedaydream.blogspot.com/ http://www.facebook.com/photos.php?id=633338979 Spanish Jam

Wow the sunshine is following me. 2 sunny days in Brussels and 1 sunny day in London. Now i expect some rain. When you have consecutive sunny days in Brussels and London then you have to expect at least a fucking earthquake at your next destination!!! !@#$ Rangers lost tonight, but at least i was able to see a live game from this side of the planet .
