  1. I would assume sparse population and reporting network. That would be Salt Lake City, so highest population density.
  2. You lost me at Mark Levin.
  3. The corn, for the most part, turned quickly because of disease. The humidity and rains have really hammered corn and caused a lot of disease issues this year.
  4. This July would not stick out in my area based on temperatures, being that there was some hot temperatures, it's been the humidity that has really caused it to be oppressive in southeastern Illinois.
  5. I spoke once with a woman who had lived close to the railroad tracks that cut across rural Richland County Illinois. She was about 12 at the time and she talked about how she remembered her father and brothers having to run out to the fields when embers from the trains would start fires along the tracks. She also said they slept for days outside in the yard.
  6. It was a really, really great wall cloud. Just the best. When I am president we will only have the finest wall clouds and Mexico will pay for them. Donald Trump on Wednesdays severe weather outbreak.
  7. You remind me of Bagdad Bob who always insisted the US Army was no where near Bagdad as a tank drove behind him.
  8. We have just had way to much rain over the too big an area to have a record corn yield. 2009 was wet and cool like last year, this year had been record wet. That's the difference IMO. I sell ag products in my area. I know of probably 10 percent of the corn fields that will be close to zero in our area. Beans maybe little higher acreage. With missouri in the mix I just don't see zny way to get to a record. Like I said trend line may be a better guess. I would also think corn climbs to 5 during harvest and beans go above 12.
  9. This is not going to be a record corn crop. To much water damage for one and there is a lot of disease beginning to move into the area, which is early. Crop conditions reports have declined for three weeks. We will likely be closer to trend line if not a touch below.
  10. Big heats been 200 hours out since May 1st.
  11. You seem to be a big fan of warm weather. I just don't see it. Will probably end up close to normal because of night tome lows , but I can't see any real best coming.
  12. No real damage or sightings in Olney. But i was in West Liberty about 15 minutes ago. As I drove in to town from the east wind went from calm to howling out of the south east and then switched to the west. Raining so hard you really couldn't see anything.
  13. There has been some research that would suggest one of the three big jolts actually occured on the wabash zone during the 1811-12 event. There is a large off set and several sand blows in the Carmi or Mt Carmel area.
  14. We haven't really seen an El Niño type pattern up until recently. The atmosphere has been more typical of La Niña. I would bet we see a progression similar to 82 or 09. Basing that a lot o. The idea of the El Niño ramping up in the early part of the year. Like I said I would be more comfortable with that call if we see a wetter pattern establish in the Midwest and mid south in the next six weeks.
  15. I would think the way things are lining up we could see another coolish summer. Seems to be a running theme the last 18 months. El Niño coming on and the atmosphere beginning to behave like an El Niño. Solid ice cover on the lakes. If we can get a wet pattern going I would think that seals the deal.
