Here in New Orleans, October is usually our best month of the year. But this year, we have record breaking heat and rain. Yesterday it was 91F despite the rain, and today it is predicted to be 92F with more rain.

It is humid, of course, and everything was covered with dew this morning. This is how we know we are living in New Orleans. Hot, humid, and rainy. The plants love it.

Actually it is not bad with A/C but early settlers here must have been tough.

It went Kona here yesterday-- 93 degrees and at least that magnitude of humidity. Easily the nastiest day of the year.

I hate waking up from a nap in a pool of sweat. And what's this "A/C" of which you speak?!?

The "good" news is that without the tradewinds the vog has drifted over from the Big Island to produce an absolutely stunning orange/red/purple/pink sunrise. This is aloha, baby.

We get dew in the morning in Wisconsin too. Unfortunetly, starting this time of year, it freezes. I already had to scrap my windshield last week and will likely have to do it early next week too Could see sn*w already on saturday or monday. That's too early even for us.

Actually it is cooling off nicely in the desert. Highs in the 80s. Time for sweaters and long pants.

What a spectacular sunrise!! Sunrises and sunsets in the islands just can't be beat.

Sorry about the hot weather, and no A/C. When I left the islands in 1978, very few people had A/C in their homes and I suppose it may still be that way. It just isn't needed, normally. While it is hot, I guess you will just have to be tough like the early settlers were, here. Meanwhile I'm sitting in my nice, air conditioned living room, myself...

Yesterday AM, I woke to lightning, thunder, and downpouring rain. The rest of the day was gloomy with showers off and on. Damp and chilly.
Today was nice and partly sunny in the high 60s. Fall colors are getting serious now with all of the maples turning. A little dull this year, but still lovely to see.
It is NOT SNOWING....yet.

Whatever happened to global warming?

We're being buzzed by the annual migration of Blue Angels, should clear up by Monday.

We have snow in the forecast for the next few days but I haven't spotted any yet. And aren't those days getting nice and short too?

I think the F/A-18 designer was trying to out-noise the F-16s. Who needs radar?

When it comes to decibel levels, none of those aircraft could hold a bloody eardrum to the old F-4.

A little too short. Had to make a (round) trip 4 hours north today. At 7:00 AM it was &%*&%ing dark.

I used to caddy for my dad at a golf course near MCAS El Toro, and the F-4s pretty much took the fun out of golf. I don't know why we dropped any ordnance in Vietnam. If we'd just dedicated 3 weeks to flying F-4s around at 500 feet and 150 knots with the landing gear, slats, flaps, aux tanks, gun pods, a half dozen SNAKEYE, and maybe a RAT hanging out in the breeze, I'm pretty sure Uncle Ho and everyone else would have thrown in the towel from all the gawdawful screaming noise.

Of course, we wouldn't have been able to see 'em waving the white flags through all the smoke . . .

Brrr!! Officially it maxed out at 90 degrees here today, and humidity 75% - 85%. Sure felt hotter than 90. I guessed 94 before looking it up.

Rats! They canceled our snow - we're not far enough North of Kansas City center.

Of course the front may dip further than expected. Soooo - anybody dig their slats out of the closet - Colorado is/has opened a couple ski areas?

heh heh heh - I just turned down an offer to help some folks move from near Chatanooga to Port Canaveral - I hear it gets hot and sweaty in Florida.

heh heh heh - Maybe a post Holiday visit in Jan?

Chicago area has a freeze warning for Sat night. May have a wind chill in the 20's for the Chicago Marathon Sunday, totally unlike 2007 and 2008 when temps pushed into the 80's and people were dropping like flies. I think I'll watch it on tv
