We had a hell of a hail storm last night.  Everything was completely white when I got up and looked outside.  It had mostly melted off by this morning but still a decent amount in the grass and on my car…

it was 34 when I left for work, and it tried to switch to snow a few times along my commute.

It definitely feels more wintry now than most of January did.

Dropped off my wifes car at the shop and then walked home. It's only a 6 minute walk, but it was nice to be out with a chill in the air again!

Going to be in Palm Springs next week... but it appears that my absence won't result in any magic this time.    Looks like it's going to save the cold until we get back home.   Looking better for our trip with each run... might have a temps around 80 which is perfect.   My Hawaiian tan has faded.  😀

I think it will be before that... last half of February is looking really good right now.

Just finished watching @Phil’s video, that was pretty crazy!  Glad he was able to get up there and experience that!!

 

Something I would like to do at some point is ride the ferry when the sounds gets to rocking and rolling.

Saw this chart in an article last night and found it really interesting.   We are living in a great time to be alive for fans of cold weather!     

We are still recovering from the last ice age which is that large jump up at the end in the last 15,000 years.   Most of the last 500 million years has been WAY warmer than it is today.   In fact... a large percentage of that time was spent with no polar ice caps.    

Can you imagine an average global temp of 90 degrees?     Its currently just below 60.   😀

Very interesting graph. What was the source of this?  Would love to check it out more. I knew most of Earth's history was significantly warmer than today but wouldn't have guessed the peaks were 30 degrees warmer.

Pretty crazy... we talk about destroying Earth with global warming but really we just mean we screw it up for ourselves.   The Earth will be totally fine even if it was much warmer.

Step back on the ensembles thus far.

No doubt. Our planet is far more resilient than a lot of people think. Though plenty of species will go extinct along the way.

The only issue with that graph is the scale is so large that it's impossible to tell how much faster the temperature rise is now than in previous ones. Other ones also look nearly vertical, but even a rise that took a few million years would look that way on that scale which would obviously be fundamentally different from the human induced temp rises we've seen from the last couple hundred years.

A sea level rise that takes thousands of years is pretty easy to adjust to. But one that takes just 100 is much harder since it floods cities and ruins recently built buildings.

I found it interesting that volcanoes are largely responsible for dramatic warming periods over the last 500 million years.   We think of volcanoes as cooling the earth, but another huge impact from volcanoes over a much longer time frame is related to pumping massive amounts of CO2 into the atmosphere.     The Siberian Traps volcanic event around 250 million years ago was responsible for warming the Earth for the next 50 million years.
