2015 - Fall
Last evening, we had a tiny snowstorm that left areas this morning covered in white. Although it was not expected, every little bit helps.
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.
One thing that we all noticed was that various plants were way early on when they bloomed. Trees started to turn colors during the long Labor Day weekend (there was also two mornings near or just below 32F.)
All that is left of our summer is a huge pile of leaves. Course, if you want some, send an email. :)
Meanwhile, the earthquakes in NW Nevada are 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.
