Green Bay. April Fools flipped the weather back to gusty and dropped overall temps to the 30*'s, stayed nice til March ending. Lookin at the weather channel I believe I will drop south a LOT sooner than Minneapolis. KS,, NEB, IA winds will be dangerous to a van trlr as well at 40mph with only a tiny bit of weight. Here they arent tellin me much abt COLO, so again I will prob drop even farther south thru NM. Stay warm everyone.

It was 45F, which was cool enough to see your breath. A system is coming out of Alaska. We got 0.13 inches of rain overnight. It is done for now. They always have weather advisories when it rains, which seems kind of silly to me. Part of the warning has to do with snow at middle elevations and that make sense.

They are calling for a high of 61F. The rain barrels have a nice skim of pine tree pollen on them.

Ya know, it has been just awesome beautiful here the last few days since the front came through, what I'd say is just perfect and I'm enjoying it as long as we have it, before long it will be hot and humid and I'll be a mosquito's buffet. Warming up the next four days to our highest temps so far this year, but sunny and low humidity. No chance of rain the rest of the week, spring breakers are loving this week.

I took a nap on my hammock yesterday, woke to a hummingbird checking me out.

Wow, did we have some heavy showers last night, really drumming on the metal roof. Streams are flowing again but will probably stop by late afternoon. We have no source of water upstream for permanent rivers or streams so just get the flow after heavy rain.

Cloudy and breezy this morning, cool at about 65f. Forecast is for a showery morning but brightening up this afternoon with breezy winds.

Morning at the State Line of Tx/NM- still dry dust in the winds of yesterday. 47* and not much humidity.
Caught the other side of the wind change approaching the Sandias at Albuquerque, 37* if the snowshower was over me, 44* mostly tho. 3) just before dropping in to Alb. 4) Wide open skies temps up to 60* and as lo as 50* across the mesa lands of the Navajo- NM. 5) Flagstaff in sight, and sundown on the other side at Kingman. Beautiful day. Funny blowin snow that barely stayed to melt, not enough moisture to damp the road. Night everyone, and am glad all have dodged the days tragedys and storms.

Survived the violent weather yesterday; including 2 tornado warnings. Today very windy, cloudy, and temps in mid to upper 40s. At least, the violent weather has passed us by & we didn't suffer wind or hail damage & no lightning strikes. Yesterday was just too much drama. The weekend is suppose to be warmer, sunny, & quiet.

Kittriana, have you ever driven Route 70 in Pennsylvania? I used to drive to work on that road and there were always a lot of trucks. I used to play a game with myself were I would see if there were any instances where there were no trucks in front of me as far as I could see and none in the rear view mirror. There weren't many of those instances.

Rt 70 as in Interstate 70/Penna Pike 70? Absolutely. One of the few roads that can carry a trucks weight and height and length safely enough. Trucks wish they had their own roads just like you. The 2types of vehicles just naturally dont co/exist. Needless to say tho, just like a car or pickup, none drive the same way, nor were taught the same highway laws, and those guys in the trucks think of you in that car - as the guy they are taking their freight to for off loading. We just have 30x more rules on how we get to do this...
I am just east of LA in Industry this morn. Was 38* w/21 mph winds, but has gone to 53* now before the sun comes up.

(which are, afterall, Epis) Grower will trade some of my Epis for the other two varieties I could not afford. They were $10 each. Should have flowers and fruit in about 18 months.

Mostly Utah today was perfect. snow patches on dirt to the 7180 altitude. West utah 2pix. Never get tween a truck and his runaway ramp, he probably has no brakes left at all. These last 2 pix are still west of Green River Utah. The colors today rivaled those of the Painted Desert and these pix cant even touch those colors. Stayed from 58* to 65* today, full sun, light breeze. Normal I guess for Utah. At Grand Jct Co the fruit trees are espaliered in neat rows and were bursting with white pink and purple blooms and the sheltered Valley along the Colorado River were greening way on up. No Colo pix and I must cross Vail in the morning. The River was running rough, but I saw NO fishermen of any kind. A few antelope along the hwy, but still a beautiful drive.

You can tell when weather is awesome as the temp countdown loses people who are exhausting themselves in the pretty weather. Chuckl. Woke in Gypsum, Co, dark, temps 33* and slept warm and comfy...Sunup came later with a few clouds shading the sun for us eastbound drivers. Curious thing was the rainbow the sun was shining thru. It circled the sun and was not a rainnbow, just a circle of the colors around that liquad gold sun...Vail was at 24* but clear and as pretty as a postcard. 76* in Denver now before noon.

Cool, dry and partly cloudy for the next few days. Perfect weather for getting out in the garden.

Kelli, is that Epi one of yours. The backdrop does not look like Aboretum. I have one that looks identical called Grand Prize.

Cloudy, light misty rain after a dry morning. mid 70s. Regular tradewind weather forecast for the next few days with light showers. Should be a nice weekend.
Local press got a briefing from Volcanoes National Part yesterday. Someone finally noticed that the lava flow could become a threat. Until last November the lava flowed harmlessly into the ocean. In November the outbreak of lava moved to the north side of the eruption site and came inland. The ocean flow stopped. I've been watching the maps and the lava flow grew to 4 miles long, 4.5, 4.9, 5.1 and yesterday 5.2 miles long from the eruption site. If the flow continues at its current pace and direction it will take six months to flow five miles to the nearest homes.
Its not coming in our direction but, hey guys, thanks for giving folks a six months headsup. It might stop altogether anytime or it might pick up speed. Totally unpredictable.
Worse case scenario is major disaster. Hundreds of homes could be affected and a town cut off. Lets hope it stops!

Strong breezy tradewinds, heavy tropical downpours with sunshine in between. Headlights in the rainshowers, steaming roads in the sunshine but 70f - 75f.

Found an orchid nursery closing down on Craigslist. So I grabbed a neighbor and we took off in my van to get the deals. 500 6 inch pots for $50. 400 for me for Orchid Cactus cuttings. My neighbor took 100 for his wife to use in new 10 x 20 greenhouse. The nursery was also selling off their benches at $1 a foot. 3 foot wide 8 foot long for $8 wood frame and wire mesh top. I took two and my neighbor took 5 units for his new greenhouse. Van was packed to the roof. Also got three Cattelyia Orchids for $4 each. The nursery greenhouse covered about 1 acre full of benches and sprinkler system and thousands of orchid plants. If I had the space I would have taken the whole lot.

Today...Windy. Cloudy. Light snow likely in the morning...Then a slight chance of light snow in the afternoon. Little or no snow accumulation. North wind 20 to 30 mph with gusts to around 35 mph. Chance of snow 70 percent.
Tonight...Partly cloudy. Northwest wind 10 to 15 mph. Gusts up to 25 mph in the evening.

Yesterday, it rained all day. Around 6:00 pm, it started raining lightly again. Suddenly we had a tornado warning for the town, 7 miles to our west and a bit south of the highway. It was heading NE which means either us, or the town 7 miles to our north could be in the path. It depends on the easterly direction. Their town was in the warning. The sky looked fine, not the green color we usually see and it just rained lightly. Usually it's pounding rain.

After that the wind came up and has blown steady all night. It's a good day to do indoor work :o)

We did get 2 2/10'' of much needed rain!

My baby wrens left the nest just a few hours ago, they should have waited just a bit till after the line of rain. My picture only shows two, but there are three, one sort of lost the rest for a bit today, hopefully it found them before the storm, pretty wicked out there now.

Off to Costco today in Kona, drive by the Volcano National Park, then on to a black sand beach, half way stop for pastries and then along the south Kona Coast overlooking the blue Pacific. It will be a tough day.

Yesterday we did not see a spot of rain until a mile from home on the way back from Kona. Kona is like Waikiki. Hot, hot, hot and full of tourists is red convertible Mustangs. Some pics from our road trip attached. Sorry should have flipped that last one.

Won't be posting much in the near future. Looks like weather will remain the same for the next week or so. Light to moderate tradewinds, mix of sun and showers, temps mid to upper 70s for us, low 80s near the coast. No weather systems in the vicinity.

Kittriana - I had to smile while reading your post about the lichen, moss and ferns growing in the cracks in the ... go to next line and you say "rocks". Here in Hilo the roads are so bad and we get so much rain the moss and grass grow in the cracks in the ROAD. These are main paved streets in Hilo. I'll try and get a photo.
