Beautiful Day!!!!!! Not sure what the high was today, but it was soooo pretty out. We were out to go to the Dr. and run errands, and of course the grocery store, but it was really a nice day to be out and about.

Supposed to rain again tomorrow! The plants will be happy!

Broke some records for lowest temperatures in some parts of the islands. In our location we had three straight days where temp did not go above 64f and we did not see the sun. Cause was a large low pressure area swinging North or Northwest winds our way. Relatively dry cloudy weather from that direction. Upper 50s and lower 60s across the islands at night. Extra blanket weather.
Trade wind are returning so temps will rise a degree or two. Still forecast to be dry for a while. Sun is out today.
Problem is that the tropical plants kind of stop growing in this cool weather when they should be starting "spring" growth.

Groundhog Day and our never ending winter is still happening here.
Currently -2 with fresh snow :P...clippers are still going by.

Forecast though does show the storms eventually skipping us and instead taking a trip across the U.S.

We are praying for slow melt...8 feet of snow is in the hills below us so we are in flood prep mode. Was told by a met in North Dakota that Minot is beyond sick with worry.

Low 70s, cloudy and humid. Waiting to see if we get another round of storms tonight. Weather people saying no but it's cloudy and humid so who knows. Tomorrow night we have a high risk of severe storms with a chance of tornadoes. Not gonna be a fun night.

Then as soon as those storms roll thru we will be dealing with freeze warnings for several nights again. I guess it's safe to say it's Spring Time!!

I took advantage earlier to burn some grass in the garden and some dead stuff off my catmint. Saves me some trimming and my plants love it. lol.

Sounds like the storm came your way first Pepper then moved this way!

Rain, rain, rain, here again today, but very thankful for it. We really needed it. Everything was soooo dry!

It dropped 30 deg in a very short matter of time this afternoon. It was 81 in Houston, and 51 in Katy not that far away. They showed it on the weather map. It eventually got down in the fifties here as well. As long as it doesn't freeze, it's OK with me.

Low forties in the am, high of 62 tomorrow afternoon.

Quiet dry weather for the last few days, very little wind, humid and mid to upper 70's.

Storm front coming in from west of Kauai - Severe thunderstorm watch up for Kauai and Oahu. Supposed to stall over Oahu and dissipate. Not much weather is forecast for The Big Island. Now we look out the window and can hear thunder rumbling over Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa. So much for the weather experts predictions. I wish they would stick there heads out of the window and look up occasionally.

The weather system stayed over Kauai and Oahu and the thunder near us faded and disappeared.

Today it is moderate southerly winds whistling through the ironwood trees, almost cloudless skies and 82f in the shade - just 2 feet from my open window near the computer. Hilo town down on the coast is 85 but feels like 87f. Southerly winds really heat up blowing down across the lava fields.

Not likely to see any meaningful rain for another week. We need those cool tradewinds to come back.

There is a whole lot of water just waiting to be released out there.

So hard for our youth involved sports...their fields are still deep in snow.

Pictures captured yesterday. Very compacted snow (almost solid ice now).

April 27th is the date I've heard could bring a lot of melt

"People are worried.

It's been too cold, there's too much snow and not just in Saskatchewan or Manitoba but upstream in North Dakota too.

Anticipating the spring thaw is akin to poking a grizzly bear with a stick: eventually the beast will awaken. Exactly how ferocious that beast will be is still the great unknown.

This much is certain; there will be flooding in North Dakota, Saskatchewan, and especially Manitoba because that is where the mighty rivers drain. And it is there where the battle of human vs nature is truly at work."

Windy, low humidity, high of 85F. If this keeps up, and there's no reason to think it won't, fire season will start early this year. The wild grass has turned brown already.

Looks like we'll be warming up over the next few days. We had a hard freeze last night but we protected most of the tenderest plants. Everything looks great! Only a slight wilt to some and they'll recover.

35 and sunny.

-1C feels like -8

On this date, in 1980, we were 30C/86F

Garter snakes are coming out in the warmer parts of Saskatchewan now...yours will do fine TexasGal.

"Saskatchewan hospital evicts garter snakes
Garter snakes had turned a crawl space beneath a hospital in southwestern Saskatchewan into a warm den for the winter and began to emerge as spring approached."
http://www.thestar.com/news/canada/2013/04/19/saskatchewan_hospital_evicts_garter_snakes.html

They are my favourite snake as well...I was almost afraid to ask which snake it was that Sunkissed posted (the worst one we have here is the very rarely spotted,and Government protected, Northern rattlesnake) but then I read her post and saw it is a corn snake. I wouldn't be a happy camper down there with all the nasties that are unknown to me slithering, crawling and creeping round and about.

Currently -4C

Since we've just broken a record that has stood for over 100 years, here is a look back at the past (this year seems to combine both 1904 and 1907). For the heck of it take a look at a map of Canada to see the distance between Moose Jaw, SK and Medicine Hat, AB...that is the distance cattle ran (if they survived) to escape the blizzards in 1904:


MJTH 10/5/48

To show the vagaries of the weather, Mr. Stokins mentions that on Christmas Day 1903 and again on New Years Day, 1904, baseball was played with the players in their shirt sleeves, and several pictures were taken of the games by the late Lou Maples, who was then foreman switchman for the C.P.R. I think there still are several of the men who took part in those games living.

However, after the winter did strike, around January, it was one of the worst we had seen for a long time, says this pioneer of Moose Jaw. The blizzards drove all the cattle off the ranches South of Moose Jaw in a stampede to escape the storms.

They never stopped, except for exhaustion, and then they died on their feet. Lots of these dead cattle were seen the following summer alongside the C.P.R. right-of-way.

Those cattle that did keep going finished up in the Belly River south of Medicine Hat, Alberta, and the ranchers suffered an immense loss, which I think was later taken care of by the Dominion Government, as at that time the provinces of Saskatchewan and Alberta did not exist.

That winter of 1904 was followed by a comparatively mild winter of 1905 and 1906, but was followed by one that started in November, 1906, and finished about the end of April, 1907.

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

In February of that year (1907) there was a coal shortage which was so bad that the C.P.R. attached coal trucks to their regular passenger trains. There was about 80 tons of coal in the Methodist Church on Main Street, and the contractor, John Toye, voluntarily let this go in half-tons lots to keep people from freezing.


I am very glad, indeed, to see the efforts that have been put forward to relieve the suffering that has been encountered in the park area this year, said Harry Stokins, and also to see the fine contributions made by the Red Cross Society on behalf of the sufferers. This will probably show to everyone contributing to the Red Cross how these funds are used in cases of emergency. At the present time our people do not have to be asked twice to contribute to any worthy cause such as this.



*************************

Flooding in 1904
Throughout the district there is an unprecedented amount of water on the prairies and yet, there is a lot of snow and ice to melt. -- Moose Jaw Times. Seven bridges are destroyed, numerous homes damaged, boathouses destroyed, sandbagging carried out at many locations.

Cloudy this morning but I'm sure it will clear up. It is the Catalina Eddy time of year, when we get a lot of clouds from off the ocean. Tonight the wind is supposed to shift and it will be in the 90s with strong wind and very low humidity for several days. I doubt there will be any more rain until the late fall. It is getting too late in the year for rain. That has got to sound very strange to most of you.

HIghs in the low 80s with a strong wind today. Now 79. All in all not a bad day. Will be cold for next several days now.

Some weird daffodils. Maybe Vampire Daffodils? LOL. Get them to bloom around Halloween and we will have a hit on our hands. lol

We're doing our best to cool you folks off. Snowfall below happened this morning.

Wake me up next summer, winter may just be over by then. May 10th is the next cold front for Texas from what I hear from the fellows down in Houston that pray for this (obviously they don't grow plants. Oh joy! :'(
