2019 has been a very odd year for the weather. 50's in January, then snows in late Feb thru April, a milder summer with rain & thunderstorms. Now it is Fall and it's already snowed (end of Sept.), current low was 25.3F on 10/2/19. You may have noticed that our weather station is no longer on the site - We had a four year sponsorship that ended and asked the community for another sponsor, no one stepped up so it is gone.

An interesting thing to note is the number of web sites talking about sea level rise, some with goofy maps. We used to link to a website that you could manipulate based on whatever sea level rise the "experts" were predicting by the year 2100 - That site no longer exists... However, NOAA has a sea level rise viewer for coastal areas of the USA. Another type of Flood Mapper exists over at USGS that you can use for current weather-related floods.
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.
