The wild weather has started. This summer will be crazy.
« on: May 27, 2021, 08:11:39 PM »
We had golf ball sized hail just south of here.  Lightening like I've never seen, tornado sirens went off twice yesterday. And, 30 miles away, they had softball sized hail.

Trying to post an image of the hail, but can't...*sighs*

Somewhere in Texas had grapefruit-size hail about 10 days ago.

And we've had hurricane Ana already and it is not yet hurricane season.

Feels like fire weather here. Just a matter of time.

The were supposed to do a 3-day, 487-acre burn and they only did one day. Just guessing, but since they had to get a helicopter to do some water drops and the thing blew up pretty fast, I think they decided it's already too dry for prescribed burns.

And, not an hour after I posted that, I got my first text alert of the season...

Quote
LIVE OAK FIRE
Live Oak Rd in the Yaqui Gulch area .
Sheriff and Fire units are responding to the area. Please watch for responding traffic and avoid the area.
 
ROAD CLOSURES-
Yaqui Gulch Rd from Hwy 140- Old Hwy
2:44pm- No evacuations requested at this time.

The link is a live cam and looking at the terrain, the size of the fire already, and the current conditions, this doesn't look good for those folks

For us, we might get smoke, but there is 100,000 acres between that fire and us that burned in 2018, so it's not coming here. But the clouds of smoke might.

My sister Erica had it with last summer's fire season.  She didn't have air conditioning and spent 3 months in her house sweltering since she couldn't open windows.

She sold the house and is in the process of moving to Massachusetts. 

I'm in the process of upgrading my hurricane insurance for the St Croix properties.

The same wavy upper-level pattern thatís poised to bring excessive heat to the western United States next week allowed an upper-level low to meander around the eastern part of the country this weekend.

The record high for June 2 here in Spokane is 92 degrees set back in 1937 and the forecast for today is 95. Temps in the 90s in June is pretty rare here. Those usually don't hit until mid-July through August.
