How's The Weather Where You Are?

Met a fellow from Kenya who was studying over here in Pennsylvania. It had been raining for several days and he wanted to know if it would ever stop. I told him that we have storms like this; it can go several days of being overcast and rainy. He said where he lives the rain comes, really hard, then stops and that’s it.

Along the East coast, there are Nor’easters which come up the eastern seaboard with the winds out of the northeast and act a lot like hurricanes. The Midwest has tornadoes, Texas has its Blue Northers in the winter; you can get lost and freeze just yards from your house.

In the Spring, we don’t worry about the snowmelt in our area; it’s what happens upriver in New York State that makes the local news. Our melt will affect people downstream, while the events in NY’s southern tier will eventually (about two days) end up going down South Main Street. Keep it to yourself, Binghamton.

Everybody has a story.
Perry Knowlton ended up with the angels last month in NY. “Among his childhood cohort was a young Barbara Pierce, later Barbara Bush. At 19, Knowlton and a friend crossed the Atlantic from New York to England in a 21-foot sailboat. He later became a literary agent representing authors and estates such as Ogden Nash, Ayn Rand, Betty Friedan, Samuel Eliot Morison, A.A. Milne and C.S. Lewis. He also was a teacher, falconer, editor, actor, model, sailor, horseman, athlete, airplane pilot, navigator, scuba diver, beekeeper, farmer and chef."

Wx is weirding out! We had no summer to speak of, had frost warnings last night. Haven't had a decent blizzard in years, temps rarely drop to below -15° anymore.

Three weeks ago I was in the Magdelan Islands in the Gulf of the St. Lawrence NE of Prince Edward Island, and they had a heat wave, it got up to 75°.

Bottom line is that there are a lot of Snowbirds spending money to go south and our winters aren't are not enhancing their image whatsoever.
