Early Spring Visiting Suyts In May!!!

That’s snow accumulating on my windshield, in SE Kansas.

While this is a bit unusual, it isn’t unprecedented.  Remember when the nutters said …….. sigh, well, here’s to wishing they were right.  It’s a good Irish crème and coffee night.

    Holy cats! Is that what I think it is??? Moreless snow? I thought that was supposed to be a thing of the past.

      It was!! Apparently, it’s a thing of the present, as well! I was in a tank-top mowing my lawn, yesterday.

      And here I though we had a binary weather system (it’s either hot or cold with no in-between). Our winters are typically a monotonous 55 to 60 deg. Then one day someone flips a switch and the furnace goes on and we’re up into the hundreds. If one could call it spring, we have a few weeks of temps in the 80’s. Likewise with fall. Then there’s the 30 to 40 deg. difference between day and night temps (outside of the city, of course).

      Anyway, It has been unusually cold here too – 15 deg. below normal yesterday. Today warmed up a bit but still below normal. Usually, it is teeshirt weather by this time. Instead I’m wearing a sweater and still trying to plant them termaters what I should have done last month.

      Yeh, right now my heater is running and I’m wearing a jacket. I used to live in El Paso, the desert around there was quite remarkable. Just a short trip north and one could go skiing. Once in a while it would turn cold in the city. But, for the most part, it would just cool off for a bit, and we called it winter. Then it would get hot again.

        sure makes me GLAD to be in south Texas!

      • suyts says:

        I bet! It’s all melted already.

          :D. Here, the switch got flipped just after Easter, which was cold. Within one week back to the 70s and 80s and all the trees bloomed and leafed out. Then the switch flipped back and we had 30s, but no freeze where I am. We have 3 seasons: Wet, Summer, and Dry. ;). Our weather is most variable during the Wet season. Summers are nice and warm. Dry season means little rain and a bumpy ride down the temp slope.

    I love the white stuff – in winter! That is one thing I do not want Kansas exporting!

    dodged another bullet but they’re hard pressed 60 miles east and the rivers are rising…
    big fluffy fakes as I type…would whoever is praying for snow PLEASE STOP

    I can’t see evolution or DNA molecules (sans my electron microscope) so they must not be true either. Ahh denier science!

      I wasn’t aware of Darwin’s electron microscope on his voyage. You do make nutty comments.

        I’m not surprised you don’t understand Jimmy. It’s ok you have no formal scientific training. Unless you count computer science, as a life science?

        • philjourdan says:

          Neither do you – but that has not stopped you from displaying your ignorance.

          You’re ignoring my engineering degree. I’ll match my physics/math/engineering training to yours any day. Then you made this stupid comment on another thread:

          >>
          Oh really Jimmy – tell me about the hypothesis testing in computer coding…
          <<

          Ever heard of software testing? I guess not. Your expertise is mostly ignorance.

          Jim

          “Your expertise is mostly ignorance.” – never let it be said that popeye is not an expert in anything. Although I doubt anyone needs his expertise.

        • ThePhDScientist says:

          Software testing? really? 😀 lol

          Your ignorance knows no bounds.

    • philjourdan says:

      So you are a science denier. Now don’t you feel better that you admitted it?

      pHDouche you must be doing it wrong then with the DNA thinggy! 😆
