  • With the Virus Lockdown, How is Your Weather?

    If that isn't a Minnesota question, nothing is....

    Boy, I think Minnesota Mother Nature is throwing a temper tantrum! Our weather has just been all over the map this year. we had almost two weeks where the dew point was so high that even the dog didn't want to be outside. Seriously. There was a rabbit sitting in the grass in the middle of the back yard and Enzo just stared at it. Normally it is game on. That rabbit is not going to stay in Enzo's yard. Not a chance. It was so hot, he just walked away, did his business, and came back in the house. On January 30th of 2019 it was -28 F, and this summer it has been well up in to the 90's. With a swing like that (and that doesn't include wind chill or heat index!) it's no wonder this area was settled by Scandinavians!

    How have things been in your neck of the woods?

    28 (so far) days of temps in the 90's. We beat the old record of 27 days yesterday and are predicted to set a new record today.

      Up here in God's country, otherwise known as North Dakota, the temps have been all over the map. Like Melinda, I like winter and do not tolerate heat well and this month there have been several days with the temperature (not the heat index) in the mid-to-high 90's. However, we have had some days in the last week where the high temperature was 80 or less and there was such a nice breeze that I was able to open the windows and not run the A/C until late in the afternoon. When I take Duffy for his walk on the hot days, he likes to walk in the water at the edge of the pond to cool off a bit. By the time we return home from our walk, both of us are sapped of all energy and not motivated to do much of anything other than for me to sit and relax, and Duffy to lay on the Alpaca rug and sleep.

        Although being a Coronavirus hot spot Santa Clara County is a paradise weather wise!
        Cool nights and sunny temperate 70 to 80 degree days dappled with occasional clouds.
        It's as though the planet is happier than it has been for years, recovering from a blight.
        As the clouds float by in the azure sky, no vapor trails to be seen, the birds are all singing (they must know they are next in line to inherit the earth)!

          On the way to 101 today and through the weekend in Boise Idaho.

          Makes me want to order a fleece S2000 jacket. Oh, wait a minute....
          Happiness is a nice road, great weather, and driving the S with Sue in the seat next to me.

          I know for a FACT that the last year of production of the S2000 is 2003!!!!!
          After that, it will be the S2200 under an assumed name.

                  Santa Clara sounds FANTASTIC. As for the rest of us, Praise Willis Carrier.

                  On July 17, 1902, Willis Haviland Carrier designed the first modern air-conditioning system, launching an industry that would fundamentally improve the way we live, work and play.

                        No question, the weather here is great (it's even nicer on the SF Peninsula, slightly). We moved out here 40 some odd years ago from NY ice and slush and never looked back.
                        It's 72 with a light breeze at the moment (11:00 AM) and it's been pretty much the same all week. Yes, perfect top down weather, but most every place you might want to drive to is either closed or unavailable in lock down. As always, good things come at a price. Small single family houses like ours are currently selling for about nine hundred grand (we we're fortunate to buy 34 years ago, for a lot less than that). When things are better it's under an hour drive to San Francisco or Santa Cruz, or you could just set up a couple recliners in the back yard and fire up the barbie.

                          Summer in South Ms...it rains a lot. When you mow the grass you can see it growing behind you.

                            Oh Lord. Isn't that the truth. It's like the corn here. You can literally hear it growing here sometimes.

                              You are hearing the baseball players coming out of the corn field.

                                As wild as that sounds it can't beat playing before a crowd of cardboard cutouts. Strange days indeed!
