We've been dry, can't drill fencepost holes it's so dry. Today we're to get rain and it's to last through sunday p.m. One of the worse droughts since they took records. I think I'll dance a jig when it comes...
Whats going on with the weather patterns? Folks about burned up in Minnesota this past summer. Parts of California got more rain then they've ever seen. The mid-atlantic has suffered through a deep dry spell. What the heck is going on?
Them Ruskies seedin clouds again?

Records kept are only a microsecond so far as the changes in weather. After all, where ever You are right now was under water once. Thats changed. These old Ozark hills where I am were Mountains when Mount Whitney was still under water.

When folks say "the weather sure ain't what it used ya be" They are absolutely correct,and what is today will not be tomorrow and has been since tha begining of time.

Another advantage of age,We begin to see beyond Our own time on this ole rotatin rock We call Earth. If Your 30 the fiftys are ancient history. At My age the 1800' are fairly recent.
You may think Wow, this is tha worst drouth ever, while I recall tryin to farm during the dust bowl of the 30's.

Is the weather changin ?Yep. Are We helpin it to?Yep. Would it be a whole lot differant without Us? Probably not a great deal. Should I have written all this? probably not.

Remember years ago when we were doing all the above/below ground nuclear testing and Africa had the biggest drought for the longest time and weather on the other side of the world was whacky? Now that we have stop testing, their weather is not as bad?
Well now people on the other side of the world are doing the testing and guess whos weather has changed drastically.
So I'm guessing some of it has to do with that.
Pollution, deforestration, comets and many things have a direct affect on weather.

GLOBAL WARMING, although George W doesn't seem to have a clue.

I heard on a PBS station that a meterorite is
going to be passing by the earth this summer
and is already effecting tides and weather
patterns.One scientist stated that a few degrees
movement of the very large meterorite could
put the western US under water.

It snowed much deeper when I was a kid back in the thirties, but then my knees were closer to the ground.

i don't believe that there is anything unusual about the weather. i think we are just more aware nowadays because of "up to the minute forecasts" and also because of weathermen on tv are always telling us about record setting weather. i always keep a sharp eye on the weather because it affects my farming and gardening activities. as the old saying goes: "everyone complains about the weather, but no one does anything about it". as if we could. enjoy it, you never know what is in store for us tomorrow or next week.

Mike- Nothing genuinely unusual is going on with the weather. We're experiencing "perception confusion", in that we're not looking at the weather long term patterns. It's like Salmoneye sez, the sunspots seemt to be a big predictive element in it all, and they seem to operate on several periods- 7, 11, 22, & ??? years.

Fear not Mike, 'cuz I got two of the drought attack vehicles parked headed East, generally toward your area. Give me a shout to turn 'em a different way just before you figger it's time to build an ark. Grins, IHank

Aint the Ruskies if you believe Art Bell.
It is our own government.
Do a google search for 'chem trails' or 'chemtrails' and you will see what I mean.
Then pop over to Art Bells page for some more fun.
Either that or wait till the weather calms back down when the sunspots do.
22 year cycles from what I remember...

That Art Bell is a Nut. I used to hear his radio program real early in the morning. I didn't tune in to hear it on purpose. It was just what happened to be on when the alarm went off in the morning. I might look in on his page to see what he's been up too.
