    The weather here has been a lot cooler since Algore fixed global warming, but, the weather now is very unpredictable, I guess it's the climate change I keep hearing about.
    Maybe, Algore can fix that too and get the weather back to normal, but wait, when was and what is normal weather?

    one winter it was so cold here. when you were out side if you talked to some one. they had to pick up the words and take them in and put them by the fire to hear what you said.

    Cold, to cold. I'm actually looking forward to working in Phoenix next week. I hate everything about the area except the weather they have this time of year. It was brutally hot in late August, early September. So the weather now is almost a reward for suffering through it.

    those Califorinas moving out are moving in here, hope we have a really snowy winter and they leave come spring or sooner. We don't need liberals here

    We don't talk about the weather in Colorado, it just gives foreigners ideas (Kaliforniaun) and we have too many already.

    Here in Florida, mostly hot, humid and sunny except for the three months of winter. Winter time you get all 4 seasons in a day most the years. Frost in the morning, then spring hits at sunrise, then its full blow summer again at noon. Towards the evening autumn hits then about right at sun goes down its cold as hell and starts to ice over till morning.

    I love the change of seasons that Minnesota has. In a good year, we'll have an equal amount of time in each season (spring, summer, fall, winter) and 12 weeks each. Three months of winter isn't so bad, even when a cold night gets to -25F, especially if you have wood heat in the house, so it is economically feasible to have the livingroom at 80F, with a half inch of frost on the windows, LOL

    But in a bad year, when winter starts early (snow sticking to the ground in October) and finishes up late, with Blizzards in April...well, that's when I will get a little depressed and wishing I lived on the Baja peninsula

    Especially since the state is all pine trees! Talking about burning wood. At least up here in TN we have hardwoods.

    I had a 100 year lease on some Baja land... just a camping lot about 1/2 acre. I quit going down there in the late 90's... drug lords had moved in and every year it was getting more and more dangerous. Last year we were there we had to caravan out with military protection until we got to the border. As we went through Ensenada it was like a full scale battle and some of the vehicles ended with bullet holes. Lucky no injuries but I never went back. Sold the lease to someone who runs the Baja 500 and he even quit going there...

    Spent the weekend in S TX and weather was so warm one of the hunters worked on projects around the lease shirtless Saturday afternoon. In addition to a nice doe I brought home dozens of chigger bites. For some reason I neglected to take bug repellant on a deer hunting trip. Two weeks ago It was 28 degrees one morning, unusual for S Texas.

    Our first big fall storm rolled through in the last 24 hours with 4" of rain and winds to 40. The ground is saturated now and the next storm rolls in late tonight so should bring in another couple inches of rain. My chainsaw is sharp and fueled.

    In the last couple of days we have had 8 to 10 inches. We have just not had any cold weather yet, which is good for some things, bad for others. It is suppose to cool down below 0 starting tomorrow and stay cool for a few days, which will help tighten up the ground.

    It is supposed to be around 79% here today. My wife and I just got back from Palm Spgs and it was in the mid 80s there. We saw several cars with either British Columbia or Alberta license plates. Opos is right, San Diego has the best weather in the nation, for that matter in the world. It is moderate year around wiih no bugs. You need water to have bugs and Southern California has no water. I was stationed on North Island in the early 1950s and it was just one beautiful day after another. The problem now is the amount of people. I saw on TV several years ago that the most populated area in the Western Hemisphere was the greater San Diego- Tia Jana area. While I am at it I may as well assure all you people who live in cold places, this is one little pea picker you don't have to worry about moving into your section of paradise. I hate cold. I worked for GTE and many decades ago they acquired the phone company that served Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. I knew four people who transferred there and three of them transferred back and the fourth man quit the company and bought the trash hauling company that served the town of post falls. He is still there. He wanted me to transfer there so I asked him how cold it got the winter before and he replied -30, nuff said. I guess those winters were just too much for the other three.

    We can have 40* swings, Summer or Winter, 65 AM, 105 PM, or 25 AM, 65 PM. More common is 30* swing that we are having now, 59 AM, 89 PM today. And when I was driving a tram at the Air Museum, I told folks that the highest ever recorded in Tucson was 118, and there was good news and bad news - the Good News: I wasn't here! The Bad News: I was in Phoenix, where it was 122!
    And we call this time 3D - a Delightful Day in the Desert! 1/10 cloud, small breeze, did some casting yesterday and loob/sizing today, on the patio. Beautiful...
