  1. 34* forecast for tomorrow morning. I'm on the line. Just West of me will see 32* That's 25* below normal for North Texas in late April. Que paso amigos?.......
  2. This evening.- St Vincent. Well, we knew it was coming. The violent explosions are still ongoing. “Richard Robertson, with the seismic research center, told local station NBC Radio that the volcano's old and new dome have been destroyed and that a new crater has been created. He said that the pyroclastic flows would have razed everything in their way.ld have razed everything in their way.” -NBC Apparently everything left there living, - people, animals, dwellings - has been destroyed. If they didn’t heed the warning, they are likely dead. Surely, it’s no coincidenc
  3. All we can do is follow it. But volcanic activity is ticking up and Strato-Volcanos are not to be ignored. Iceland has had some interesting activity as well. It sits on the MidAtlantic Ridge. So, will others on the ridge show activity? Canary’s?
  4. Soufrière St. Vincent volcano Stratovolcano 1220 m / 4,003 ft West Indies, St. Vincent, 13.33°N / -61.18°W Current status: erupting (4 out of 5) Soufrière St. Vincent webcams / live data | Books Soufrière St. Vincent volcano eruptions: 2020, 1979 Typical eruption style: effusive (lava dome extrusion) and explosiVe ASH ADVISORY up to 35,000 feet
  5. Just for fun. Consider the uptick in activity in the supervolcano in Italy at the usually quiet Phlegrean Fields. While active but quiet for many decades activity has steadily increased. In the US we worry about the Casacde chain and Yellowstone, but the Phlegregrean Fields have the ability to knock us all back into the Stone Age. Vesuvius last really vigorous eruption was during WW2. But the Field in general have remained steadily quiet until recently. https://www.volcanodiscovery.com/campi-flegrei-earthquakes.html F While the Cascade question came up I t
  6. I think it’s going rock and roll for awhile. Update- An explosive eruption rocked La Soufriere volcano on the eastern Caribbean island of St. Vincent on Friday following mandatory evacuation orders from the local government. Emergency management officials said the ash column rose about 20,000 feet (6 kilometers) high and that the ash was headed east into the Atlantic Ocean. However, heavy ashfall also was reported in communities around the volcano, said Erouscilla Joseph, director of the University of the West Indies Seismic Center. “More explosions could occur," she s
  7. Volcanic activity picking up. Mt Etna remain active and now the Caribbean wakes up. “The Caribbean island of St Vincent has declared a red alert and issued an evacuation order after seismologists warned that the La Soufrière volcano shows signs of an imminent eruption.” The Guardian
  8. Texas would definitely take exception. This winter beat the stuffing out of us and the infrastructure. If Ft. Worth had not been prepared there would have been many more crises. As it is, I have 15 shrubs to dig out. Fewer than my neighbor. But many plants bit the dust this winter.
  9. We had a very chilly Spring in North Texas. Just sayin'.
  10. Yup. Lived through it in Aurora, I’ll. Just outside Chicago. once was enough for this Texan. Hauled arse as quickly as possible. Recent Sub freezing experience of 32 hrs in a 38* house alone while my husband kept emergency services fueled and operational was no piece of cake. No power at all. Heated water on grill outside. I’ll take 108* summers, thanks.
  11. Best to ask the atmospheric nerds here. I do believe volcanos affect our atmosphere but they recently stated in the news that there were upwards of 3 million volcanoes, fissures, and fumerols in our oceans. That's a lot of heating not to mention chemicals spewing out into the ocean. How they affect the oceanic temps and Nino/Nina cycle is for the weather nerds.
  12. Hey Phil, check your pm's. Cheers PS. ..... Thing is, I’m not back.
  13. Another gorgeous spring day. Sunny and near 70. Light breeze. Just perfection.
  14. Another gorgeous day in paradise. We'll see 65* and sunny today. Currently clear, and 46*. Just a beautiful spring morning. However,....Daylight Savings Time hits Sunday. For many of us that's lousy news. Me included.
