62 when I woke up last night. Snowing now.
Yep, that just blew through up here, too. Luckily, no power issues thus far.5 minutes ago, sunny and dry. Then the wind started picking up. I mean, seriously picking up..making my house pop and creak. Then the rain started coming down in buckets. So I grabbed this short video.
I was finally able to mow my yard on Monday, it rained Tuesday, nice today and probable soaking for the next couple or four days… this is the wettest spring I can remember around here since about 1993 or so, only now I have a yard to deal with.Well, I got a it has rained at least every other day for 3 weeks piss and moan...
I am slipping all over my front yard when I take my dog out. I have an inch of water and a foot of mud to deal with.
Don't worry, we're being California-ized instead.That's the problem with AZ. They're in desperate need of nuking from orbit just like Texas.
But that's another thread.
Yup, we're flooding too at the moment. Huzzah.You guys may have heard about there being a historic drought in Taiwan over the last few months. If you have, it was probably in the context of the drought contributing to the global chip shortage, since TSMC couldn't get enough water to produce their chips.
Well, over the last week or so, we finally got some rain.
Lots of rain, in fact.
So much rain.
Taiwan is now flooding.
Ha ha ha remember when I said it would be July when ERCOT fucking made Texas look like clown shoes yet again?He is, and to an extent, I am as well, in that once again ERCOT is showing itself unprepared for even a mild unfortunate contingency. There is no way that a stalled front in April should be causing demand to outpace supply. When we get into the July-August doldrums and everybody's running their AC at full blast 24/7, is our power grid going to buckle like a belt AGAIN, if it's already strained now?
