Todd,

 

What's winter?

 

Man, I'm constantly tapping my thermometer to see if it's broke, it seems to be stuck at 89° all of the time.

 

I envy your space, garden and yard, ...but I wouldn't trade with ya.  biggrin.gif

Dang Todd. We arent far behind. We will be in the 30's over night the next few days.

Hmmm. We have another 10 weeks or so of Hurricane season. biggrin.gif

We "may" see frost in Feburary - just enough to slap down my banana and umbrella trees!!

We have some cotton wood groves along a river about 50 miles from my home at approx 3,500 ft elevation that were showing signs of frost about 10 days ago. Bottom limbs had some nipped leaves that were yellowing. We haven't suffered frost here just yet (4,900 ft), but dipped to 37* about a week ago. Thing is, we haven't had a spring snowstorm here for 2 consecutive years, and just missing the first one had myself and others wondering. When we get spring snowstorms, we're talking blizzard conditions...wind, cold, and snow piled up 1/2 to 2/3 the height of streetlights. Roads closed in all directions for 75-100 miles or more. Last winter was relatively mild, with below average precipitation and above average temps for our area.

 

 

All indications in our area are pointing towards the beginning of a 50 or 100-year cycle, myself (or, however long it may be). Could be a long, cold winter...filling the freezers and pantries and having generator fuel on hand for several days of power outage will be part of my plan (winter storms can down powerlines, or overload substations due to the increaded load for comfort heating). I can run my forced air furnace and the indoor refrigeration, lights, etc, before breaking out any of the serious emergency gear...we will survive.

30's in California already???

You live in the mountains, or way up in Northern CA, or both???

 

We are supposed to hit 40˚ tonight.

 

This is all a good reminder for me to get eating BLTs, because it is the frost that stops my tomatoes every year.

Bear the answer is both. We are about 5000 feet elevation about a hour west north west of lake Tahoe.

I don't know where that cold comes from, but please if everyone keeps their smokers going, Maybe we can change the jet stream!

I don't like cold. I worked the michigan winters in construction for 32 years, But not anymore, I don't have to go out if I don't want to now!!

Except for Drs appointments!

This is fascinating to me as I thought Africa to be quite warm all over. Much to learn but I started here:

Do you go to Ceres and pick fresh Cherries, Ahron? The view of the Ceres Valley is stunning.

 

Thanks Good Sir, So much to learn...James
