    Spring-Summer Observations 2019

    Managed to bottom out at 44 degrees this morning. Must have gotten a chill in my sleep because I dreamed it was snowing. Had several people say they turned their heat on and many were wearing jackets.

    Really can't beat this on a bright sunny day at 5:00 pm in Mid June.

    More training extremely heavy rains going right now over the area. Around 1 inch of rain in the last hour with some heavy echos still to come. First was was just very heavy rain about 45 minutes ago, current wave is heavy rain with thunder.

    It has went from early mid 90s a few weeks ago to being 59 with rain today at 1 in the afternoon the week before solar summer begins.

    Another 1.5 inches here tonight. Over 10 for the last 5 days in the area. The sheer volume of flood damage is unbelievable. Homes underwater, buildings swept away, roads shredded, giant ditches opened up in yards. Water has been off for days in areas, as has power. Large trees both blown down and washed down. Thousands of tons of mud and debris are every where. Guardrails 15-20 feet above the level of creeks along sides of roads are clogged with logs. There are some large steep ridges that run parallel to the Cumberland Mountains in Campbell County. The bottoms of those ridges were destroyed by the runoff. I drove past a few front yards today that had ditches 4-5 feet wide and 8-10 feet deep in them. It looked like someone came in with a track hoe and just ripped it up. I saw one estimate that 7.4 inches of rain fell in 2 hours over those ridge tops.

    This is crazy. It's rained 6-8 inches over the last 6 hours or so.

    MRX issued a flood advisory, needed a flash flood warning. The worst flash flooding I've seen in 20 years is ongoing here. It rained 3 inches in an hour. Most of Campbell County is having major issues right now. It slacked off a bit but heavy rain has returned.

    Earth shaking thunderstorm has been parked over my area just dumping down rain. Approaching 4.5 inches of rain for the event so far with possibly 2-4+ more to go by Monday.

    Picked up 1.4 inches of rain on day one of the rainy pattern. Will see what we can add today and through the weekend.
  10. It was mid-summer hot today, I already dread the rest of summer and am looking for that first big cold front of early fall.
  11. The NASA climate scientist whose panel I attended last year said the solar cycles were looking like the lowest activity both at peak and minimum since those that happened during the Little Ice Age. She said the current downward peak would likely happen in Winter 2019-20. I think she said there were 50 years of minimums like this in a row during the time of the LIA from roughly 1650-1700. She said we are basically in a 20 year valley right now. The Little Ice Age was started most likely via volcanic eruptions but possibly the minimal solar activity extended it. Apparently low sunspots should produce colder winter in Northern Europe, and the continental U.S. but warmer than average in Southern Europe/Canada/Greenland. We see that last year the low activity did nothing for winter/cold here as there are exceptions to almost every weather rule it seems.
  12. One last shot at glory??

    Good grief. Last year it snowed on April 16th here, this year it's going later. Rain and snow showers likely, becoming all rain after 9am. Cloudy, with a high near 50. Chance of precipitation is 60%.

    April 13-14 Severe Weather Outbreak

    There were 0 severe storms here but the long duration strong wind event bent a huge metal pole that held signage for a restaurant near I-75, broke a power pole, and blew the roof off two of my outbuildings along with countless trees down. I'd say we had some 70+mph gusts.

    They got rid of Bob Yarborough too. I guess they are cost cutting with veterans. Glad Rick Barnes came back, surprised to see him pull the seeking job to get a raise card. I guess maybe he's not as financially stable as you'd expect a 64 year old that makes millions every year to be. He's now paid more than Tom Izzo, Roy Williams and some other NC level coaches. He better raise the bar in his post seasons, though he's not very likely to manage that at this age. Still, the big pay bump shows the next coach after he retires that we are serious about the basketball program.
