Record Breaking Weather - chuck white - 01-20-2014

Quote: The village of Karesuando, right at the very northern tip of Sweden, clocked the epic cold temperature during Sunday reports the Swedish weather agency SMHI.

"It is also a seasonal record," said SMHI meteorologist Lars Unnerstad to the TT news agency. The recorded temperature of -41.2 was a record for that region which is right on the Finnish border.

And talk about some shitty weather (we can still say that?)

I hear we (South Dakota) are having the coldest winter in several decades.


RE: Record Breaking Weather - tvguy - 01-21-2014

I thought this thread was going to be about the Rogue valley. We had a record cold spell and I think we have a record for the driest winter too.

All well and good Chuck, but many (most) of us live in the beautiful Rogue Valley in the wonderful State of Jefferson.

And we too, appear to be in for a dry year, starting NOW, right here in the what we usually expect as the wet season. We read that the state forest service is warning of winter fires.

Begging the question: What can we do (each individual citizen) to help with this problem.

Rain barrels?
Reducing lawn areas and watering only to keep turf alive (if brown)?
Sending "the old woman" to Idaho to visit her sister to reduce bath water consumption?
Stop bathing the dog. And cat?
Drinking more beer and less water?

Seriously, we expect our local, state and federal agencies to start preparing for this dry season, but do we citizens have responsibilities too?

PS: I got a PM from Cletus recently in which he stated he hopes to train the deer who hang around his place to urinate on his lettuce so he won't have to water it. When I pointed out that deer eat the lettuce he called me a spoil sport and said he has removed me from his Christmas card list. A joke, because Clete don't got no X-mas card list.

Really: This is serious stuff and come July we are going to be thinking a lot about it. (Except Clete: He will be in some south sea island Laughing)

"If it's yellow, let it mellow. If it's brown, flush it down."

I have a friend who used to live in a dry part of Sam's valley. What you quoted was painted on the inside of their toilet seat coverRazz

My water comes from the ground and when I flush it returns to the ground.

I hope there's some filter distance between the two points.

No, it has a strong brown/red tint.

Quote:Indianapolis, which has had almost 2 feet of snow this month, may see its single snowiest month in the city's history, where records go back to just after the Civil War. (The snowiest month on record was January 1978, when 30.6 inches fell.)
