Thunder Rolls


Thunder Rolls

We've been having the oddest weather this year. First, we were buried under 12-foot snow drifts. Then, with just over a week to go 'til Memorial Day, rain has been cascading in buckets & temps have been hovering in the '60s. A week ago, we were pounded by hail the size of my fist...quite a scary proposition.

Today finally shaped up & acted like the Month of May, but the weather dudes are are calling for a more moderate weekend clime, with more rain on tap.

Endearing Question of the Day: Global Warming or funky forecast?

Global Warming was a misnomer. The proper term is "Climate Change" people don't like using it because it is harder to deny or ridicule -- as facts often are.

It is just nuts this year, isn't it?

It's crazy everywhere. Climate change as the earth changes once again.

Lovely shot! And yes, I am afraid we are seeing the Early results of climate change. The weather certainly fits the modeling, thus far. Of course, there is a lot of randomness in weather as well, so pinning any singular event o climate change is very problematic. The truth is in the trends.

I do love a good lightning storm, but draw the line at fist-sized hail. Dang!

Fist size hail sounds pretty scary. Our weather has been odd too, but we finally have real spring weather forecast for the next few day. I hope it lasts.

Rolling thunderclouds,
harbingers of rain to come,
sky beats on its drum.

I'll leave the speculation to the scientists...but it sure has been whackadoo weather here in Florida too!

Definitely been an odd year. Thanks to the stinkin weather patterns, I'm down sick for the first time in a year. All winter, all that snow and cold, never once did I come down ill. Now it's nice out and I can barely get out of bed....
