    Awesome Storms

    Had thunderstorms and off/on pouring rain essentially every 10-20 minutes today from 4:30am until 3pm. Had to be up from 4am for class...but my god. I remember being in Atlanta, Georgia for 18 years - I never saw thunderstorms last that long and that consistent the whole time. And this is the 3rd time this week.

    Winter 2018 Discussion

    I made this thread already. Back in March or February. Maybe even January.
  3. This manner of warmth is no easy pill to swallow. It is abhorrently warm and it is obscenely humid. The dewpoints are dancing dangerously close to the 70 degree line; if I lived in Indiana I would certainly go so far as to say that it feels rather close outside. I hate it. Pondering the future in a world so horrid that the heat lays like a damp pancake on my world is a ponderance I'd rather not see actualize. What God could let this happen, let alone happen to me? At some point in the racist riot that is summer, the hurly burly is decidely done - the battle art certainly lost and lost - and lost even more in the humid pace of thunderstorms. What point is there, then, in the sweltering, diminishment of the soul that is this vulgar heat? “Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow, Creeps in this petty pace from day to day, To the last syllable of recorded time; And all our yesterdays have lighted fools The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player, That struts and frets his hour upon the stage, And then is heard no more. It is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing.” I hate summer.

    Got over 3 inches of rain in just a few hours this morning. The roads were a bit messed up once again in Houghton, though mostly just with dirt and debris rather than snarled up chunks of pavement.

    This heat has been unbearable. Especially given that I've been moving into the new house, etc. My god. It hit 93 the day I had to do the most work. No a/c.

    I'm planning to get a pws set up in August. WS-2902A sounds good to me, as well.

    2017 - 2018 Winter Sports Thread

    I've decided to stay in the Keweenaw. My wife and I are purchasing a house (outright so there's no mortgage) in the Calumet area (gotta stay above 1200' elevation) - closing is on thursday. I love this area and it feels very nice to finally settle down in one place. Now I need to get a snowmobile. Going to start getting serious about this. Also nice to bump this thread in June.

    Coldest wind chill by state

    I always wondered about that low for Portland. It's so incongruously low for other areas in southern Maine and downeast.

    Only got down to 44 here in Calumet. Still...felt cold. Past two nights are the first time I've needed an actual blanket since April.

    I am very interested in how undocumented high elevation, ie >1,000', climate is in this area...and also out north of Sault Ste Marie in Ontario. There are so many gaps in the data.

    You're prolly aware of this stat: http://www.weatherbase.com/weather/weather.php3?s=447302&cityname=L'Anse-Twp-Michigan-United-States-of-America Though I actually just found it. It's labeled as 'L'anse Township' but it's actually out in the Huron's somewhere around Herman, maybe. It's also 1,700ish feet elevation, so basically on par with you. Gives some decent numbers for high elevation western UP.

    Coldest wind chill by state

    Like 'wind chill'...'heat index' is another one of those imaginary gimmicks people use to exaggerate.
