  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. We had a very chilly Spring in North Texas. Just sayin'.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Hey Phil, check your pm's. Cheers PS. ..... Thing is, I’m not back.
  10. Another gorgeous spring day. Sunny and near 70. Light breeze. Just perfection.
  11. 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.
  12. Yet Texas is dealing with extra rain. I received about 1.5" rain the past 36 hrs. It's clear at sunrise and several days of sun ahead before another rain. We'll be in the 50's and 60's. Things are a little upside down but we need the rain.
  13. I've received 1" of rain today. More through early morning. Three days of sun then another chance. 56* The low is circling and the next group of heavy rain is on the way.
  14. Rain, followed by more rain today. We've received about .75 so far but I have no doubt we'll exceed 1". Rain is a nice shower very consistent. Nothing stormy, just constant rain. Widespread flooding in saturated soils. East Texas Piney Woods will see 4" of rain. Wow. This will continue until tomorrow around 9-10 pm. Good day for chili ! 58*
  15. Throw in the allergies TOL and you'd be a perfect picture of Spring! We have rain rolling in today and heavy rain tomorrow, 1-2". Generally dark dreary skies and rain. Yeah. Spring in Texas!
  16. BTW, if your place has run out of hand sanitizer ...besides soap and water there's this. Same formula as hand sanitizer. 70% ethyl alcohol 30% aloe Vera. Bingo
  17. New York State homes are coping with inches to feet of ice after storm. Now, aren't you glad you aren't chiseling out of your home? _________________ https://www.wthr.com/article/houses-frozen-over-near-lake-erie-new-york-due-cold-temps HAMBURG, N.Y. (WGRZ) — Cold temperatures, gale-force winds, and 18-foot waves from Lake Erie created an ice spectacle at Hoover Beach in Hamburg. Homeowners on South shore Drive woke to the ice completely covering their doors and windows. In some cases, their homes were dark because of how thick the ice was. Ed Mis, resident and homeowner in Hoover
  18. Meteorological Spring starts today (at least it's a start). And Texas is in the mood We'll have 76*, clear and windy today. Typical spring-like weather. Rain by Tuesday.
  19. The weekend and Monday mid to upper 70's. Then mid to upper 60's for a week. Rain Tuesday and Wednesday. Looking forward to the warm weather as it will drive away the possibility of this virus worrying people. Viruses love cool waeather. So, come on sunshine. Looking like early spring.
  20. Yeah, we're warming up down south. We've got the welcome wagon out!
  21. Late winter is delivering a blizzard of Mt.Cedar! Allergies are pegging the chart and I feel like warmed up spit. It's been a bad year for allergies here as we didn't get the deep cold. Could have used a little snow. Instead we got rain and the cedars were in happyville. Thus the misery index is topped out. Blehhhh!
  22. Were sitting at 38* at 8 am and very windy. Gusts to 32-35 mph. Should see a High around 48*. Worst part of this NW wind is it's killing my allergies. Mt. Cedar from the Rockies blowing in. Windy the next few days. And very chilly.
  23. Gorgeous weather here. 60's sunny and calm. Phil,......Check your messages please.
  24. Snooze-fest ongoing in Texas. Can't complain really. 50-65*. Sunny, gorgeous days. Rain maybe next Mon. Or Tues. I'm storing up the pleasure of this week for July and August "heat exhaustion" days.
