Well, we still need the rain.
Forecaster discussion is telling me that I have a 60% chance of 50 mph winds and snow showers Sunday night. It was nearly 80 degrees today. That’s craaaaazy.
Yep, crazy indeed! I was planning a weekend on the water in AZ..Sunday will be a work hard day instead of relaxing and enjoying total peace...I love the El Nino weather we’ve had this year. Seriously, AZ should be just about ahead of the drought...HaHa, Oxymoron!
Do you create a new ping list for every storm? LOL.
I love your updates! Keep me on, please!
The solar minima continues, with a steady increase in Very High Energy Cosmic Rays the varies in an inverse proportion with solar maxima. In 2006 the experts predicted, at the latest, a sharp rise in a stronger than normal, but not necessarily the strongest, Solar Max beginning certainly no later than March 2008.
Aside from the occasional burp of Cycle 24 (and last month a weak, transitory spot of Cycle 23 polarity and locale) this is now long been officially the most protracted solar minimum of the 20th century.
All bets are off on the strength, the onset, the Maunder Minimum, whatever, that should eventually be the sudden sharp rise in solar activity....someday.
Great chart, also courtesy of SpaceWeather.com, HERE.
Make sure the you check the date spread... very enlightening...
I see they’ve renamed California to reflect it’s new status as in “The Late Great Golden State”.
Don’t you guys ever sleep! LOL
But I like it and am plotting my next move....
Am about to reboot and try it with the integrated graphic on the ASUS motherboard,....would save me buying a graphic card...the one I have is a little old.
You must have dropped the space character on your end.
I try to get 3 or 4 hrs sleep at a time...7 is better of course.
Speaking of the Sun ...see this thread:
I heard you were hanging upside down up there...LOL
Ahhhh... the Jaunty Jackelope, eh? (I have no idea what that is, lol).
I'm so glad there are people like you to try out all this new stuff and help them get the bugs out before tech-challenged folks like me buy them at half-price. Thank you! ((grin))
Nope. I copied and pasted that off the main page, mot the header off the actual post. They’re different. Like I said, “The Late Great Golden State”. ;^)
Wow! Nice pic!
And *very* cool website!
Snow level to 4500 feet? I was going to plant some flowers tomorrow...
Of course, it did snow over Memorial Day Weekend last year.
Of course I spent much time in Santa Fe ....which is 7000+
..WIND ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 6 AM SUNDAY TO 6 AM PDT MONDAY..
WITH STRONG GUSTY WEST WINDS OF 20 TO 30 MPH WITH LOCAL GUSTS TO AROUND 40 MPH DEVELOPING BY MIDDAY... ESPECIALLY NEAR THE COASTLINE.
