    ...thought you'd get a giggle out of the fact that it SNOWED in some areas of the city and the outskirts today. Snow. August. Something's wrong with this...

    We went from 100+ to 32 in a week. Man, I gotta' move to a city with REAL weather one day <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon9.gif>

    Amazing!
    It was hot again in Boise.
    By the way I like your site a lot!
    I think it serves a great purpose.

    Well thank you, Scott [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    I got my dogs (Greyhounds) from a group in Idaho and they're laughing their butts off at us today...rubbing our noses in the fact is was too warm to garden. Yeah. Right. I'm going to have to chip ice out of the pond at this rate!!

    Parentsworld;

    This is very bad news as we are moving from Winterpeg to Red Deer at the end of this month. I was hoping to get at least a little warmer, but it doesn't look that way. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    That is crazy Parentsworld! I don't know if I could handle that kind of change. Talk about a shock to the environment.
    I am just glad that it is 85 - 95 in Illinois. Now if we could just get rid of the humidity everything would be great. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    It's wet here.. rain, rain, rain, floods, rain, rain. But warm too. It's like living inside someone's training shoe.

    96 to 98 degrees Farenheit for the past 5 days here and 26,000 people without power after last night's lightning strikes. (Happily I'm not one of those 26000).

    Hey WorkerBee, don't know if it'll be the same in Red Deer. Often, Calgary gets MUCH different weather than Edmonton does. Ok, so Red Deer is directly between the two of them...but I don't know which weather pattern it follows!

    Here's the front page of a local paper. The other paper had a much better picture but they don't have it online [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]

    Send some of that snow down here to me! I'll gladly take it right now. Went out for a couple of hours to the movies. When I got back home AC out. :eek: Heat indexes of 100+. Thankfully I have a lot of shade over my house which helps and ceiling fans. But wouldn't mind some of that ice. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Yeah, but it's been like that for us too up until this week. My mother used to say "careful what you ask for"...guess it's right 'cause I've been BEGGING for cooler weather! It's been over 100 here too and this is not a city of warm temperatures so no one owns air conditioning and we searched but couldn't find any to buy. Sigh..just came in from the garden and things are very very confused out there...

    LOL.....PW, that is just crazy. I thought were were having some strange weather here, but nothing like that. Just as everybody else here, we've been seeing 95 to 103 for the past week. Nightime lows in the 80s. On Thursday while flying for traffic, we ran into some storms (bad news). We couldn't get back to our airport because of their intensity..but what is strange about, they were moving SouthwWest. That is unheard of around here..they always move East from our Mountains out to the ocean...its always been that way, so moving Southwest, it truly defies logic...kind of like the jetstream deciding it wanted to go the other way.

    The other storms we have been getting have been very, very intense. My wife and I went to her company picnic yesterday when one hit. We were in the middle of Bull Run Park (yes, you US'ers have/should have heard of Bull Run)...there was no place for us to go (all 50 of us) except under this big Gazebo...then lighting hit a tree that was about 15 feet away and split in half...hail was jut a little smaller than golfballs...When we left the park, there were trees down everywhere and our power was out for hours (still no cable this morning)...Something strange is definately happening....

    Here in San Antonio ... It has been in the low 90's.

    Just perfect for my summer ritual of 1-1 1/2 hours at the pool everyday ... working on my tan [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Hmmmm, well, I can sleep when it's cold. I am getting really tired of being exhausted from the heat and feeling like my eyes are sand paper.

    Of course, snow belongs in the mountains where you can visit it. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    I can't wait till it snows again. I just moved to Tennessee a few months ago after living in Orlando the past 12. There are some good things about Orlando except i didn't like how crowded it was getting, and i don't like 80's and 90's 10 months out of the year and the humidity. Every time you walk out the door, its like somebody jumped on your back. I like 4 seasons, hot in summer, cold in winter.

    BWAHAHAHAHAAA!!! Yeah, we were complaining last month about the heat...I WANT IT BACK!!!

    Tom, Strange weather like this always worries me. Usually, something big happens when the weather patterns get strange on the continent. Luckily, (other than snow) it rarely happens here but it's like it's begging to be tornado weather or something.

    It's been around 100 degrees here for about a week or so now! All I can say is I'm glad I have central air!! Cold is definately easier to deal with (although that fast of a switch must me hard) If you're cold you can always keep piling on more clothes, if you're hot....well there's only so far you can go<IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon12.gif>

    After 35 years of celebrating the 4th of July by walleye fishing though the ice, sipping a cold brew-ski and wondering if the girls on BATWATCH really existed, I hooked up the snow plow to the front of my pick-up and headed south.

    At a gas station in Texas, some man asked me what the H*** was the contraption I had in the front of my truck.

    Dropped that big boy and sold it for scrap. Been here ever since.

    Folks sometimes talk about the flurries they saw in '86. Yesseree, some of the fountains had ICE on them. Can you imagine?

    Seen snow in every month. Snow in August pretty much takes the pop out of the corn if you know what I mean.
