Let's Talk About the Weather - The New Temp Thread

Another "cool" front blew through Indy last night with a reinforcing short of cool air.  Lots of wind and temps today in the 60's.  Maybe some light frost tomorrow.  We are still way down in the rainfall department but we got half an inch Wed. afternoon and that was as much as we received in all of August!

After 40 days and 40 nights (and breaking a record from 1904), Houston is finally getting some much-needed (measurable) rain.  Some expected to be severe, so awaiting a power outage at any time. Smiley Sad

Re: Let's Talk About the Weather - The New Temp Thread

Wow, that is dry Spd. Nothing like waiting around for a power outage. Yeah, we don't even have to search for stuff anymore. Flashlights in one place, candles in another, and if thinking long term have a couple kero type lanterns to burn.

 

Well tonight should put an end to all blooming plants/flowers. Will hit 27 tonight, and tomorrow night, with heavy frost both days. Seems like the constant winds have been beating us to death everyday for a week. Guess that was just winter coming in for good. 

 

By Sat we will have a high of 43 and cloudy/dark all day. Typical Ohio November. Smiley Sad

Real thunder and everything! Smiley Happy

 

Flashlight in every room, in plain sight. Smiley Sad

 

That's too bad about the plants.  Really am cutting back this year with fake silks in pots and very few live; just cannot deal with it any more.

 

We're supposed to get cold weather with this rain. Smiley Mad

Yeah, called it right on the impatiens and leaves/flowers all druped this morning. In the next couple days the 1 1/2" tall plants will just be mush on the ground with 25 degrees. Smiley Sad

 

I move some of my plants/hanging baskets in for the winter but what a battle keeping them alive. Seems like spider plants in hanging baskets always tend to do best. Have about 4 that are 7-8 years old.

 

Sounds like a real good idea Spd in going with silk flowers. Have seen some which look very real and always adds some color. Smiley Wink

 

Duh, Friday they're calling for possible snow/flurries. Give me a break and thought we wouldn't be getting snow anymore with global warming. Smiley Very Happy

Bummer. Smiley Sad  Most impatiens here got killed off by the drought, and periwinkles got fried that were in the ground (and they LOVE the heat!).

 

If you have a GardenRidge Pottery in your area, best bet to pick up fake silks at a good price.  They'll last outside for 3-8 yrs. depending on sun exposure and color (fading).

 

I got that tip from my grandma who used silk flowers for gravestones of relatives. Smiley Sad  She wasn't able to go there often, and fresh ones die quickly.  It was a comfort to her to still see nice flowers when she was able to visit.

 

From the street, believe me, nobody can tell the difference.  Just don't arrange them too perfectly.  Neighbors will be in awe of your green thumb (especially in the dead of winter). Smiley Very Happy

I had the first frost on my car this morning.  I actually had to start it and let it run - first time in 7 months.

Re: Let's Talk About the Weather - The New Temp Thread

We will take any and all rain (up to a point) BUT if it comes tomorrow night, it would be snow, so i'll pass during that time frame.

My mom had a silk plant in the foyer and I always had to look closely to make sure it was fake. Don't worry if they are the right color.

Rain finally ended this afternoon.  We wound up with a couple of inches in the Frisco/Plano area.  Already making up for the drier than normal October so for the year I think we are actually +1".

Think it's still in the 80s in FL! 

 

Rain has stopped for now and wet leaves everywhere. Smiley Sad

 

Opened storm door last night and a baby bird (or small one) flew out and nearly hit my head!  Don't know what kind it was, flew away too fast!  No, it wasn't a bat (or a flying roach, LOL!).

Just wondering how many of you are running weather apps on your computer and which ones? I've been using Weather Pulse by Tropic Designs for quite some time, it's a nice little program without any ads and best of all, it's free. :smileywink:
