  1. Currently standing at 0.53" on the day and 3.75" on the month. Almost as "dry" as what @snow_wizard is “suffering” through right now. And I average about 55"/year of precip total, which I believe is significantly more than his area does. So even more “anomalous” here. What I think is happening, though, is that @MossMan is just scoring well this month. Compare your backyard’s totals to those of the big winner, and of course you will come out on the short end.
  2. Temperature has not budged much since daybreak. Currently light rain and 53.1˚F.
  3. Trump’s economy included the COVID recession…
  4. Given that I cannot think of a single PNW summer in the 30+ that I have experienced without a heat wave, this seems a safe bet.
  5. How dare he do for warm-season torching what literally everyone in the forum does for cool-season cold.
  6. I take that about as seriously as a January GFS run showing a minimum of 13˚F for that station this far out.
  7. 1700's: the search for caloric. 1800's: the search for luminiferous ether. today: the search for dark matter. Confused physicists have a track record of concocting imaginary forms of matter into existence when they don’t understand something. The Earth is in a part of the universe (galaxy edge area) that according to dark matter proponents should be unusually rich in dark matter. Yet not so much as one speck of this dark matter has ever been detected, despite billions being spent on attempts to detect it. The most logical explanation is that dark matter does not exist and the current standard model’s gravitation equations are simply incorrect in that they do not properly model the behavior of gravity at very large distances. At least that is my current belief, and if dark matter is actually detected and/or can actually be used to make successful predictions of the existence of currently unknown phenomena, I will revise my belief accordingly.
  8. Max of 54.1˚F IMBY today, with on and off (mostly on) rain. Sitting at 0.71" for the day and 2.91" for the month.
  9. I can only imagine how many righties would have a heart attack if a Supreme Court judge or their spouse flew a circle-A anarchy flag or a hammer-and-sickle commie flag. It’s only “just somerone’s opinion” if you happen to agree (or at least not disagree much) with it.
  10. Rain and 48.4˚F. 0.42" on the day and 2.91" on the month.
  11. And I would like to believe the next lottery ticket I buy will be a winner.
  12. Or, for that matter, historically much of the Willamette Valley.
  13. Even if climate change were not a factor, there would be the fire deficit from decades of well-intentioned but ecologically unrealistic fire suppression to contend with, so smoke season is in general going to be a thing going forward.
  14. I would definitely approve of that! Start with a cool, moist spring and odds are high for at least a less severe than average smoke season.
  15. No we have not, not with the pathetic snowpack situation up this way. Need to hold onto it as long as possible.
  16. A drizzly 47.7˚F when I awoke earlier this morning. Now 50.2˚F.
  17. More like belief. Foreign aid is less than 2% of the U.S. Federal budget. https://www.crfb.org/blogs/breakdown-foreign-aid-obligations
  18. Gender is not biological sex, which is much more (though still not completely; intersex individuals exist) dichotomous. A core part of “respect” seems to me to be willing to use the pronouns and gender identity a person feels s/he is a member of. Maybe I should start using “fascist scum” (or, simpler yet, just “fascist”) as a pronoun to identify all conservative Christians. I mean, why should I defer to those sickos determine their pronouns. And this isn’t disrespect, it is just me exercising my freedom of speech. So if you disagree, it just proves that you are anti-freedom. /sarc
  19. And yet more evidence that every accusation by a Trump fascist is in fact a confession. I have seen exactly zero organized efforts by the LGBT community to recruit small children. (Simply saying that LGBT people exist is not recruitment.) Organized religion, by contrast, spends no end of effort doing exactly the same thing: indoctrinate children into their belief system.
  20. Did Loaded Questions 'R' Us have a special today?
  21. Don’t worry, I read an OpEd by someone who finds the whole idea of climate change politically inconvenient and it was certain it is all a myth spread by the globalists.
  22. Ergo most of Trump’s base will fall for it hook, line, and sinker.
