Today was the first good day in a bit for me weather wise. We missed a big heat wave when we were in Ireland for two weeks, got home on this week. Weeds took over the garden, but everything is doing ok .


How did you like Ireland? My wife and I spent two wks there about ten yrs ago.Had a great time and the Irish are awesome people.

The people are wonderful until they get behind the wheel of an auto. Passing on a road barely big enough for 2 cars with walls on both side was a common occurrence LOL

We toured all the back country in a rented auto.The best part is driving on the wrong side of the road,that took some time to get comfortable!!

We did the same, went from Dublin to the west coast to the north coast. Lots of sheep in the road and beautiful country. We took a trip to inishmore island and out of 100 on the boat 80 got sick. Swells we well over 10 feet a usual 1hour trip took over 2. Good times LOL

So in that adventure, what was the cuisine like ?
In France it was terrible to us. Funky foods like duck liver, rabbit, quail, mutton, weird seafood, lots of greens and breads. Coffee was yuck, tiny cups with a whole cube of sugar,no milk or cream.
Produce was way over ripe.
The people in France were skinny. The portions were at least 1/2 the USA size.
I basically ate frozen imported food, greens and breads while there. Wife tried everything under the sun that made me cringe.
What we didn't see were cows or much beef, chickens or pork.

And when we are deemed obese, it is based on that particular body type and calorie intake being the standard.

We tried a few things and most was ok. Sheep, lamb , fish and chips. Mostly we ate out of supermarkets and coolers. Way cheaper and I am eating things I like. Salt of the earth folks here, mostly farmers. We got stuck waiting on a tractor parade. 350 plus  from all years and makes. From 100k  machines to 500$ oldies. It was a highlight.

Us too but where we were there were no supermarket. It was narrow alleys and open markets. It kinda grossed us out but it was the normal for them folks.
Our meals were buffet or order style. They were fancy to the folks that live the area but not my appetite.
Sometimes I just need a cheeseburger

We are getting our second gully washer storm now today. While temps were only about 80 , the humidity was dreadful all day.
The big difference in this year's summer from last year's has been the gully washer storms.
It seemed like last year they started everyday in early July and just never ended.
This year they've been much infrequent.
Its actually been perfect for my garden. A quick rainstorm every 3 or 4 days means no manual watering.
With this deluge and lack of jars, I decided to bag and freeze this remaining batch of sauce. Another 10 quarts. This run yielded the most. At 69 quarts so far I'm going to focus now on salsa. As always, every single ingredient comes from the garden.
I did get some pickin before the storm and currently have 2 full boxes ready. By Friday probably another 2 boxes and process on Sunday.
Very shortly it will be apple season and we will start the applesauce program.

The Ontario region just has to be loaded with staging salmon right about now.

They are right on  schedule, a few fish milling in around the piers on the Genesee at night and then moving out to temperature during the day.  The Lake flipped last week, and that brought the browns in close, too.   It is not enough for a special trip to throw spoons off shore, but another week is Labor day weekend and that is when it really lights up in close in the lake.

Re:Weather thread 2019/08/28 17:50:34 (permalink)
Ok so now I'm upset. The almanac- forecasters are calling for a new term for this winter saying it's a polar coaster winter.
Below temps from January through February and above moisture. Lasting into late April.
Now because of this: the bandwagon has begun.
My wood pellet supplier called and said right now a ton of pellets are $25.00 above last year, starting September 1 they go $40.00 higher.
What a Scam energy people are running as I expect fuel and electricity costs to rise , all just because.. the sky is falling. I can assure you I spent 20 weeks on ice from December till late March last year and could have easily put 30 weeks in if I wanted

We typically burn 3 tons in my house at a cost of $259.00 last year, our only other heat is wood which we use daily to support.
My daughter burns 4 ton , my mother 3 ton.
They also have fuel boilers and pretty much the cost is about double. Pellets + fuel = double.

The biggest thing I'm pizzed about is how scientists, aka weatherpeople, or media can effect the money in my pocket.
One thing I know for sure is my company or government funds are not going to offset the cost.


Ranting over.
Hopefully the fishing is kind to all.
I have a fall Adirondack trout trip planned for 3rd weekend in September.
Maybe the weather will be to the trout's liking better

r3g3, CYA time for government and emergency management.  Plan for the worst but pray for the best.  My sister & brother in law live about 20 minutes west of Ft. Lauderdale in Davie and I'm sure my wife will be receiving periodic updates as to the storms severity.

Anyone that watches the news , cries wolf and gouges the people. Anyone actually lives their life understands what happens and prepares themselves.
This weather things is nothing new and has been endured through generations.
It just makes me mad as a hatter how media influences things

HT worse yet, the people that permit themselves to be influenced by the media.

The "eighth wonder of the world"..... The Media.😉

BTW..... only one of the original 7 wonders remain (The Great Pyramid of Giza) as the other 6 have been replaced through the "wonders" of the media.

Good news, unless you're a meteorologist with TWC (the most trusted news network🙄).

Word has it "Dorian" just may skirt the East coast loosing strength as she goes.

Unfortunately the Bahama's ain't gonna be so fortunate.

Time certainly will tell.

r3 kudos to your son and all other utility service personnel, responding to the needs of others.

Dorian now a cat 5 with winds at 175 mph.

Exact 🌀storm track still unknown along the east coast with Charleston SC now catching the talk of Dorian.

North islands of the Bahamas not going to fare well.


Meanwhile, I continue watching the reports by child like "meteoroligist🤔", wishing I could reach into the TV and bidch slap these people, for the way they act.

Why can't these morons just report the facts. Their drama (pisz poor acting) only leads to "crying wolf" syndrom.

Forecast getting better for the east coast.

TWC folks beginning to back pedal on their forecasting and of course the very "computer models" TWC promotes as being "gospel"... is at fault.

Yessir it was the "computer models" we saw on TV crying WOLF.... WOLF and now being reported as wha..... whaaa

Please TWC (the most trusted news network😝) ..... just report the facts and leave the BSing to us anglers.😕


Here's the scarry part, TWC now reporting "the sacred computer models" say the storm is turning.

Meanwhile, I'll take the word of current radar plus the thunder in yonder distance sez, my asz is about to get drenched.☔

🌀

Down to a Cat 2 now and wobbling but they say it's working it's way toward the Carolina's.

Pictures from the Bahamas not looking good but at least, help and assistance can now move in.

Ouch. Another reason I don't mind living in the area I do.
Coastal and deserts are not my gig.
Stay safe. Turn off the news and build a brick sheet house.

Uhhhhhh-boy....... here we go again. Storm 95L heading toward the US.

Honest I tried watching TWC, hoping to learn more about this storm but I can't do it.

PLEASE don't make me do it.😩

While anticipating my upcoming early week trip to the SR have been watching the everchanging future weather reports closely.
One thing is certain- if you are unhappy with the long range report don't cancel the trip-simply go to another reporting venue for a very different forecast- in fact go to several which can lead to headaches and general confusion.
Since I am already mostly confused anyhoo, guess I'll just go fishing.
 
Next challenge- water levels--lol

Lucky I do believe you are correct. There is that global climate warming change. 🤔Or is that now, warming climate global change? Hell I dunno anymore??

I do know I'm glad I got the hell out of Dodge or I should say NW Wyoming & South Dakota before the climate changes out there this week.

❄Winter's coming.⛄


Speaking of fishing, I see the weather dudes talking of some kind of weather event with lots of wind and rain heading up and sticking around the NE coast this week.

Here's hoping yinz don't have to deal with that while wetting a line.



r3 not only can a guy change channels for a different view of the weather but ya can also choose between the "European model" or the "US model". Gotta luv it when "the models" are blamed for inaccurate forecast.

Tight lines & good times.


As for me I'm "not" heeding the advice of Horace Greeley who is credited with "Go West Young Man". My butt is going south.🤗

Lucky..... toooo late. They say "what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas" and that's what happens to a guys money.😞


I was hoping to make it muup New England for the Autum Leaf Show but I stayed a week longer then we anticipated, in the Bad Lands.

Seeing the East Coast getting hammered with a "nor'easter" makes me happy 🤥 I didn't make that trip and has me wondering if the trees will have any leaves, left to see.

Even gooder though, I'm soooo happy, I ain't now sitting in the high plains or should I say, "stuck" in the high plains.😳


Good GRIEF..... I'm glad we left when we did.
