Been playing Starfield and holy shitt is it so much fun. Between that and college football plus NFL starting this next weekend I've been way distracted. Hope everyone is doing well.

I bit the bullet and got it Sunday night but wasn't able to play it until yesterday.  Fun game!

So much new green grass in the lawn. Perhaps the fields may green up. Not much rain coming up, but a lot of seasonably cool nights. 42 this morning.

New EPS seasonal not on board with the idea of an active early season NPAC jet, more STJ which benefits CA/far SW US while northern locales are left dry. December looks like the most variable month.

Basically your canonical super niño pattern.

I got stung on my tongue while we were camping.  Had one in my drink and didn’t know it.  I used to be highly allergic to them and had to go to the hospital if I got stung.  Luckily the venom immunotherapy I paid for was successful.  Decent chance that sting would have killed me years ago. 

Yeowch! That’s a sensitive spot.

I saw exactly zero yellowjackets where I was camped near Duffey Lake.

I ran over a yellowjackets nest with the lawnmower several years back. At that point I didn’t understand that they nested in the ground. Those buggers know to go for the head and upper back/hard to reach places.

Needless to say I drowned their asses with raid that night.

Since we are on the topic of bees right now I’ll just say that it’s really annoying when you are minding your own business and a bee starts flying all around you and up in your face and you can’t swat at it or anything because it will probably make it mad so you just have to hope it flies away or something. It’s almost like they are attracted to humans sometimes. Just bringing this up because I’m sitting outside waiting for a to-go order and one was bugging me.

That no swat idea always seemed to be off to me.  I don’t think I’ve ever been stung while swatting at a wasp.  I usually knock them out of the air and step on them.  On the other hand I’ve been stung multiple times when I didn’t even know the wasp was around.

These winter predictions do nothing for me. In addition to having virtually no skill, they are just not very interesting. Winter weather in the lowlands is largely a meteorological fluke. We might get an Alaska block with coincident arctic air over western Canada or we might not. If I wanted winter weather I would move back to Wisconsin. Give me a powerful AR and a windstorm.

12Z EPS shows a glancing system on Sunday but not much else.   Generally transitioning to a weak version of a western ridging/eastern troughing scenario.

Everyone thought 19-20 was going to be THE ONE, I bailed at the last minute while sifting through some shocking data, and scored a direct hit. 

We have to remember we are coming off probably the 3rd best winter of the 21st Century, so a repeat is very unlikely. Some kind of roided up version of 2009-10 is probably our ceiling, the floor is about as low as it could be. We could very well end up in the basement.

Can’t say with any certainly that a “dud” is in store, especially since just one solid week is all it would take.

But a warmer winter for the northern half of the CONUS is statistically favored. Doesn’t mean it will happen, but this is a big boy EPAC Niño, and it is likely to be the dominant low frequency player throughout DJF barring a massive SSW/MJO takeover from the LP.

The fact we’ll likely have a clean, maturing -QBO does make things more interesting, though. Strong niño/+QBO is the most reliable “dud” scenario in the PNW region these days. Niño/-QBO can do more interesting things.

Yet another day pushing 100°F.

Trees starting to drop leaves like crazy, probably due to drought stress. Have seen thicker foliage in mid-October.

Bees and wasps are two entirely different sorts of critter.

Bees are not by nature aggressive, and their stings are pretty meh unless you are one of the few unfortunates who are hypersensitive to them.

Wasps are much more intrinsically aggressive, and have much nastier stings. Also, their stingers are not barbed, so a wasp (unlike a bee) can with impunity sting again and again.

Wasps can sting just for the hell of it. Bees will sting only as a last resort.

I will swat wasps away, hard and aggressively, if need be. The harder the better, because it is more likely to stun and disorient the wasp. Then I go in the opposite direction I swatted the wasp. Have not been stung for doing this.

Last time I was stung by a wasp, I was not even aware of it until she stung me. It hurt like the devil for hours. Last time I was stung by a bee, same reason. It felt like a pin prick, and it went away after a few minutes. The bee died, and I felt sorry for her.

Well pretty much every trough over the next two and a half months or so is going to bring no real threat of any appreciable Arctic weather. This winter is probably going to be a dud, but at least if we get ridging now we might get some of of this crap out of the way before winter starts. Maybe we could sneak in a little week or so of interesting weather in Nov/Dec. idk. This is all just superstitious rambling.

Well pretty much every trough over the next two and a half months or so is going to bring no real threat of any appreciable Arctic weather. This winter is probably going to be a dud, but at least if we get ridging now we might get some of of this crap out of the way before winter starts. Maybe we could sneak in a little week or so of interesting weather in Nov/Dec. idk. This is all just superstitious rambling.

I've got nothing but superstitious ramblings. Bring on the Shaman.

One word for days weather: Perfect!

High of 70 after a low of 44 with fog to start and fair skies this afternoon.

My wife had the day off and she was starting to clean up the garden and I had to join her out there for awhile because it was so pleasant.   Really doesn't get any better than a day like today to be working in the yard.
