Crissy: the best thing you can do with people like that is to refuse to let them upset you--usually they will leave you alone once they learn they can't "push your buttons".
Sharon: is Prissy scratching her back or just relaxing? Cute pumpkins!
Cajun: lovely fall colors.
Bernie: 5 small jobs is certainly better than no jobs at all, huh?
Celia: good luck on selling Darrell's mom's house! As you said, at least people are looking. Your "echie" looks cold!
Kelli: 54 is chilly for you!

We had a lovely afternoon here with sunshine. Rain will be moving back in tonight. :o((

Sharon I absolutely Love those pumpkins!! I've always thought about picking some up but never have.

Marilyn she has never been like that toward me before, but she has befriended Ms. Cheerful so I know that's what the problem is. I just told her that me and Dave are doing just fine. I almost said that hers and the other girls divorces are making my marriage stronger but decided to bite my lip on that one. lol I just don't understand what is wrong with these people??? I would never tell someone something so negative, same goes with the other girl's dream and her car wreck that killed me. Good Grief!

Well our weather is pretty much going to stink tomorrow. I'm getting one day ahead cause I may not be on tomorrow, taking Friday off so need to get as caught up as I can at work.

"Torrential rain from southeastern Texas to the mid-Mississippi Valley will result in life-threatening flash flooding Thursday into Friday. There will also be the risk of thunderstorms that bring damaging wind gusts, hail and isolated tornadoes.

Spotty showers and thunderstorms will rumble over southeastern Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana through Wednesday night. Then a solid band of heavy rain will drench the rain-weary area from southeastern Texas to the mid-Mississippi Valley Thursday into Friday. This includes Houston, Little Rock, St. Louis and Paducah, Ky.

The thunderstorms embedded within this band of rain may be locally severe, but the highest threat will be flash flooding as 3-5 inches of rain falls in 24-36 hours. Motorists should be prepared to slow down while going through the downpours on interstates 10, 20, 30 and 40, to name a few. Do not try to drive through flooded roadways. Officials may be forced to close portions of roads and highways.

Homeowners along creeks and streams and in low-lying areas should also be alert for rapidly rising water. Soil across the area is also already saturated from heavy rains so far this month. Ongoing flooding along larger rivers will worsen, even after the rain comes to an end later Friday or Friday night.

The drenching rain and thunderstorms will be followed by a period of welcome dry weather over the weekend that will last into at least early next week."

We're not rain-weary yet!! After this dry dry dry summer, all of the rain we have been getting recently has been a blessing. They've already set up a flash flood watch for tonight and tomorrow morning, so obviously they are expected a lot of water to come through with this system. By the time it leaves here on Friday, we may indeed be rain-weary, even here.

Tried digging potatoes this morning & almost got stuck in the mud before we got to the tater patch.
Hopefully by this weekend the floor joists will be done & we can start the walls. By this time next week we should be doing the roof.

It is basically a very warm wind. We can go from -20C or 4F to +20C or 68F in matter of a few hours. The Chinooks are short lived, but sometimes they last a few days. They usually form late in the day. The 1st year that I have moved to this area, I was shocked that we went from flow blown cold winter conditions to a high of 22C or 72F on February 20th. It was weird. A lot of people suffer from headaches with chinooks and also, you can imagine how hard it is on the plant material. We can have a few days of sunny high temps and then it drops drastically in minutes.

This link has a nice diagram and also some nice pictures of what the Chinook cloud formation looks like - AKA Chinook Arch

I thought it was much more an Appalachian saying.
That's the way my Grandmother said it... of a morning we had a skiff of snow.
That's certainly what it is though! LOL!

We have some Santa Ana winds. Though Chinooks and Santa Anas are different in origin, I wonder if their occurance is at all connected.

It's a fast moving cold front that comes out of the Canadian prairies. It is moving SE & in winter usually has light snow & strong winds. They create whiteout conditions & wind & snow drift roads shut. Lots of fun.
Whiteout is snow being blown by wind so you can't see over a few feet.

Crissy may very well be hiding in the basement of the building where she works because we are having a severe thunderstorm as I write this. Also, there was a tornado about 3:40 p.m. south of here about 60 plus miles. One of our fellow DGers lives in the area where the tornado touched down. We haven't heard from her and are concerned. It is pouring down rain--so hard that if anyone is on the road they surely couldn't see--it would be wise to pull over until things let up. Too bad this is taking place just when everyone is getting off work. :o(( This is supposed to continue for the next few hours.

I'm worried about Genna in Camden, they've been hit twice and now getting ready for a 3rd time. The whole southern part of the state was lit up a few minutes ago and one of those warnings is coming directly at my house, all I can do is sit here with a tight chest from anxiety and pray for everyone's safety. Parts of Camden are also out of power, as Clarksville and a few other areas. I hope you're all ok out there!

I just heard on the Weather Channel that Hwy 319 west of Apple Hill, which is about 10 miles northwest of my house, is flooded. Also, that some evacuations were taking place in Cabot. It must be in some of the lower areas of town because nothing like that is taking place in the area where I live. I do live on top of a small hill so although we are definitely waterlogged no water is coming into my house and no evacuations taking place in my immediate area. The Weather Channel is concentrating their current reporting on the Shreveport, LA area which has been hit extremely hard by all this rainfall. However, they just spoke a few minutes ago with the state's Emergency Management Agency about the situation in our state. It doesn't look good because we are still under the gun and this probably won't go away for several hours. :o((

I'm concerned about Genna, too, Crissy. Sure hope she and her family are okay!

Crissy, Genna and I and our families are all fine. We weathered the various storms okay, thank God! We had as much rain in a few hours as we normally get in a month. Low-lying areas have flooded and/or still flooding. Several roads in our area were closed due to flooding last night. Two or three school districts in the southern part of the state are closed today due to water over the roads, etc. My son went over to check on his dad and couldn't even get over there because of the flooding in that part of town. Thankfully, most of it has gone down but I sure don't know where it went--the ground is super-saturated here.
Today things will be clearing out and the temp will start dropping--we have already had our high for the day. Tomorrow and the next 3 or 4 days should be dry with sunshine, even! That will certainly be welcome,to say the least!

You all have a good day!

GLAD to hear everyone's OK!

Our weather is like early Spring.
53 when we went out to the HT at 10 PM... 56 when we came in an hour later.
63 at 8 AM... 66 Currently... going for 74.
Normally I'd be watching for severe weather too.
But the temps are going up slowly , w/ the cloud cover, then coming back gently to around 60 before the rain hits around midnight.
Then a gentle drop thru the night to around 50 by tomorrow morning.
Then stable weather thru the week.
Looks like all the violence got expended down South.

Rusty good to know you're on High Ground!
We are too and love it.
Good luck on the truck search!!!

I ran the leaf vac/mulcher yesterday on the paths, deck and boardwalk...
No trace I ever did it...
There's 6" of leaves between the backdoor and the HT...LOL!
I'm looking out the window and it's raining leaves again..

Sharon that's a really nice Maypop!
Love the critters!

Here's our Maple.
Notice the bare left side? That's from the Hurricane last Fall.
The big Oak (right) is mostly bare now.
It's to our south and so now we are seriously picking up the sun.
The house was warmer yesterday from sun heat gain than it's been in weeks, when it was 10 dgrees warmer outside.
The GH was 80 yesterday!

Ric: that's a LOT of leaves--mulch them, bag them and send them down here---LOL--I could use them in my flower beds! I think all our recent rain has completely washed all the mulch from my EE bed--it has floated into my neighbor's yard! :o((

Rusty--congrats on the sale of your house and good luck on your search for a new truck!

Kiska: where does all that dust come from?

The rain has stopped temporarily--supposed to begin again around noon--hope it just dissipates completely--probably wishful thinking on my part.

Low 50s here with a very strong wind. Sun's popping in and out every few minutes but not enough to do anything. I went out and picked up a few big limbs, pulled a radish, and pulled the peppers and tomatoes and just laid them down there in the garden. They will decompose over winter and we will till it back in when spring hits. My dad gathered up leaves and made a small pile, don't know why since the wind will blow them whereever. lol

Glad you all made it thru those storms down there ok. :~)

Ric, it's nice to have someone else as the hottest place for once.

People down the street from us are having a new roof put on their house. This is as good a time as any, as there is not the remotest chance of rain in the 10-day forecast.

DH and I are still sniffling and snuffling and coughing but we took an easy outing today. We went to Shadow Ranch, which is a city park a couple miles away. The house was built in 1869 and was the headquarters for a 9,000 acre wheat and cattle ranch.

Some of the first eucalyptus trees brought to the U.S. were planted here. The last of that group fell over several years ago. This is a stump or trunk section from one of them. I find the upstairs windows interesting on this section of the house. This picture and the first one show the back of the house.

This is the front of the house. I think the brick section looks Virginian, though the original owner was from Australia.

The board and batten type siding lives on in the 1950s and '60s "ranch" tract houses. Oddly enough, those "ranch houses" are always one story, but all of the authenic original California ranch houses that I know of are two stories.

By 1862, this kind of door would have been so out of style back east. The door seems out of proportion to the fanlight, but I still like it. There was school or daycare going on inside the house so it wasn't right to be looking in the windows, but I'd like to sometime see if anything that looked original remains inside.

The winds are continuing to blow glacial silt across the valley and the wind chill is in the mid-20's.
There's ice in the river so it's a bit unusal to have both dust and ice.
Pepper~seems like a good idea to wait till spring to utilize the crops. Sounds as if your dad likes to keep busy.

Kiska: so it is glacial dust!! One doesn't connect dust with glaciers--at least one from my part of the country doesn't--LOL
Pepper: At least the wind blows the leaves out of your yard--which means you don't have to rake them--LOL
Ric: Joanna's tree is reflecting my sentiments exactly about your 70+ weather!! Shorts and sandals--how dare you!!! LOL

Wow, Kelli, that is some ranch house and some tree trunk! I grew a eucalyptus tree one year back in the 70's. It got about 6-7 feet tall but I had to harvest all the limbs and preserve the eucalyptus because it never would have made it through one of our winters. I kept that bunch of eucalyptus for a long, long time but finally tossed it out after about 30 years. LOL I'm glad you and your DH are feeling somewhat better now.

Well it has finally stopped raining!! Hooray! "They" are promising us at least 5 days of dry weather and sunshine. It's practically a miracle!

I'm so glad we are all accounted for! I'm going to look to see what hate and discontent that front is causing today, I know that MS and AL got tornadoes yesterday but didn't have time to keep up with it.

Anyway, it's nice, bright, and sunny so outdoors I go!

Great job Celia!
We weren't here for T or T tonight but we rarely get anyone anyway.
Shame cause it's one of my favorite Holidays.
In Dayton we would throw dusk to dawn parties and have around a hundred people thru the night.
Then take up a collection and cook breakfast for 2 dozen or so...

Perfect night for the Bonfire at Joycet's.
Clear, cool and calm.
Probably 3 dozen people and kids.
Great eats! Great time!
