Temperature flucuations

posted Mar 01, 2017 18:24:42 by CJCrawshaw
There's something wrong going on when Antarctica is 63 degrees and Utah is 19 degrees. The ice caps are definitely melting.

Well it is the middle of summer there. That could have something to do with why it is so much warmer than us. In August it will be super hot here and super cold there. I wonder if these sites will report it if Antarctica gets record low temperatures this August?

Probably not. It doesn't fit the agenda.

The weather is certainly odd. Record highs in Oklahoma recently. 99' is not normal for February in the midwest.

for the last week, we have had temperatures in the 50's and 60's. It's even reached 70 in some places in upstate NY. That is just about unheard of here, in February.

Houston has been regularly in the high 70's and 80's, even reaching to the 90's throughout February, which is supposed to be our coldest month of the entire year with temps in the 40's. Just like last year I have a tree that leafed out before it flowered and barely had any flowers because we pretty much have no more winters here. It is a tulip magnolia and should be COVERED in flowers. This year it had 4 flowers total on the whole tree and now is full of new green leaves. Everyone around these parts talks about how we didn't have a winter last year (2015-16) and now the same has happened again. It is perpetually warm here from November until March and then it starts to REALLY get hot and muggy. Today I had to water plants that were drooping from the constant 84° heat.

Try to not hate the cold where you are. By the end of our hot fall here, I was suffering from a type of 'mental fatigue' heat exhaustion because there had been no winter here for over a year. I anticipate I'll be feeling the same way after this next summer since I think I wore an extra light jacket maybe 3 times.

The elements are in commotion. I believe that will ramp upward soon.

Shanta, I remember years of extreme heat, growing up in southern Arizona as a kid. Now, these Idaho winters are my reality. We've had some low temps for several months. I am continually amazed that our chickens survive and still lay eggs with these perpetually cold nights. I don't know which is worse, perpetual cold or perpetual hot. (?) Just so the crops continue to grow and give us a harvest. If that fails to happen, then we all need to humble ourselves and pray for the Lord to moderate the weather. We all know that oddities are bound to happen as things ramp up.
