2015 - Winter
It is finally SNOWING!!! Seriously, it is great news. Seven inches one day, five inches the next day, repeat and shovel. Even though it is not Winter yet (it begins on December 21st), I have heard that the local Ski Hill will open this year.
This past Summer was one for the record books, unreal heat in June, a thunderstorm with lightning physically over the Fairgrounds during the 4th of July Fireworks show, and days of heat for the remainder of July & August.
What we are not looking forward to is the week or two of "deep freeze" temperatures (negative 20+ F) that should be happening in January. In 2014, that deep freeze happened in December, breaking all kinds of low records that went back to the 1890's.
Meanwhile, I have to go relocate more snow although if you want some, bring your truck by... :)
Those pesky earthquakes in NW Nevada are still continuing:
An interesting thing to note is the number of web sites talking about sea level rise, some with goofy maps. Years ago, we included a website that you could manipulate based on whatever sea level rise the "experts" were predicting by the year 2100. For those folks who forget that 1 meter = 3.28 feet, you too can figure out what your exact location will look like based on whatever meters you manipulate the graphic to. If you happen to already live there, might consider moving now.
To remind folks, here are the fire sites to watch: active fires & fire warnings for the entire USA.
Need To Buy Something?
Buy products made in your country, not China. If you want to get your country back to work, you have to buy products made by your fellow citizens.
Reduce your monthly cooling bills by replacing your home's roof with white-colored material, use native plants for your landscaping instead of lawns, remove all Juniper plants (they swallow more water than you can imagine), and if you must have a green lawn (for children or pets) use an artificial material.
Go "green" by using more Metals, which may be reused easily while Plastics requires special types of equipment to process. Only buy products your area can recycle. Read labels, make a difference.
