The problem is prayer and our connection with The Lord. We have a record heatwave, so we Pray for relief with cold. Then we ask Him for warmth to counteract.

He giveth.

Each summer you Pray that He will bring rain, then you beg for it to stop so He stops it.

You people need to quit trying to change the world and just have faith in His plan.

137 Is An Excellent Time: Maybe y'all shoul contemplate moving where Mother Nature isn't trying to smite you so god damned always?


Um, we did.

Unlike you, I haven't forgotten that regular blizzards, tornados, flooding, hurricanes, sandstorms, 100% humidity and encounters with Republicans make civilized life nigh impossible.

The weather and geological events we experience in SoCal are a minor inconvenience compared with the Stockholm syndrome the rest of the country is living with.

StatelyGreekAutomaton: Peach_Fuz: When does fire season start out there?

Generally when rain season ends.


In Northern New Mexico (where I currently live) it's usually the opposite. We come out of winter into wind season. Wind season develops into fire season in May or June. Early July the monsoon rains arrive and end fire season (in good years) which leads into a drier but not fiery fall and a reasonably snowy winter.

Yes that's five seasons. If winter was associated with Heart we'd summon Captain Planet.

leeto2: Meh. Nothing going on in my part of Oregon. Got a bit of rain yesterday, certainly not monsoon level.

If it puts out the fires in southern/eastern Oregon, a couple of mudslides out in the sticks is worth it.


The American west, not the pacific northwest. I noticed that a sprinkling had shifted around the dust on my car yesterday.

Unsung_Hero: I'm a bit further north.  Record-level rain here, I believe... but only on a seasonal scale, we're not getting it all at once.  Presumably it's helping wash all that west-coast smoke out of the air (because Canada's west coast has 'winter' and "OMFG it's all on fire!" seasons.  The fancy new AGW-approved heat dome didn't help, I'm sure.

I'm not keen on all this apocalypse weather, even though it has yet to do much where I live beyond occasionally hit us with an Arctic air mass to make winter that much worse.


Over 30 years ago, when the University Science Center I worked at was modeling this new fangled thing called global warming, there were different models, but all agreed that the weather would get really changeable in extreme and "violent" ways.

And here we are.  :(

I meant it in a good way meaning that that it puts a spell on you.
I lived in NM for several years and it becomes a part of you. You get addicted to green chiles and the aroma of piñon.

Arkansas sucks, stay away. Sara Sanders Huckabee will continue ruining life here soon.

Way back in college I drove from Tucson to Albuquerque to visit a friend. I took a shortcut and wound up driving through Hatch during the chile festival. The entire area smelled like heaven with the roasting chiles.


So you popped a hatch and the smell wafted over you?

I was in an isolated cabin in the mountains of Temecula yesterday and saw the monsoons in the distance. It was actually quite incredible. Luckily for me it didn't reach my area and I was able to continue sunbathing naked in peace.

The rain we're getting in western Montana does raise the humidity, which helps the fire crews, but it rarely reaches the ground.
The lightning does reach the ground, and with eight major fires within 50 miles of me, it's not helping.
I am nervously awaiting a "wind event" to come through the region.

Big disasters make the news, but the day to day truth is that insured losses are lower in the US west than most of the country.


Well how many claims do those insurance companies wiggle out of?

What's their disaster-per-capita?
