We need rain, there is a storm trying to get here all day but you could walk faster than it is moving.
If I could get all you Texans to go outside and blow as hard as you can toward the NE and if Arkansas an Missourians could suck like there is no tomorrow maybe we could get this thing moving! Kthanks!

We got a shitload of rain and thunder this afternoon and more coming till the weekend assuming the front doesn't stall out.

It's weird having so many days in a row here so cloudy.

This one fizzled before it got here, another formed but it is sitting in southern Oklahoma.

*edit* Just heard that another fire, near Ruidoso in southern NM had grown from 2K acres yesterday to over 10K and has destroyed more than 20 homes.

For the past 3 days, we haven't seen any fluffy sky anythings. It's been blue from horizon to horizon. I've forgotten what they're called.

The Little Bear Fire, near Ruidoso, is now pushing 30,000 acres. It's tripled in size since yesterday. At least 36 homes gone and it's entered a subdivision according to the news. So far, zero containment due to high winds. Several thousand people evacuated and a couple of towns in its path on alert for possible evacuation.

Six drops on our windshield while we were going to town yesterday. Exactly six drops. Wife and I both counted them.

In southern NM, the Little Bear fire near Ruidoso is 35% contained. Thanks to lower temps and higher humidity, it's slowed down some. So far, they've lost at least 244 homes leaving hundreds homeless, and that number is sure to rise. Those homes were in subdivisions some distance from Ruidoso.

Looks here like we'll get one cutting of hay around the last of this month, but that won't be enough for the entire winter. We've had a few rains here, but overall we are far behind the average for this area. If it stays this way, the corn won't make much.......

Good for you.....we just toured northern Missouri, and parts of eastern Iowa a week or so, and the corn is gone.....it's already dying in the fields with little or no ear development. Soybeans have faired a bit better as they are generally planted later, but unless we get significant rain soon, they won't make much either.

NOAA is stating that this is the worse drought this area has seen in 50 years.......

No relief in sight, just forecast for 100+ temps for the next ten days.......

How hot did it get today???

official Tulsa temp was 104 but the oil leases were recording the natural gas flow at 109.
Yesterday and the day before the gas flow was 111.

Just reading that brought back giggles - in a previous life a couple of us promoted the company into drilling a wildcat down in S Texas. It came in at 50 million a day natural and one of the big wigs came down from the main office for a photo op. Now, imagine this - that reservoir was at 500 F so in the travel to the surface it didn't cool down much. You could see the heat waves coming off the tree very clearly. It came time for the picture taking and this character leans his hand up on the tree.

Have you ever heard the phrase 'don't take me long to check out a fire?' He had blisters an inch across.

I felt sorry for him as he was a good guy but he had just been in that ivory tower a little too long.

The flow on these wells is much much less than that, usually the gas temperature is an accurate measure of the air temperature, I read it off the meter before it enters the pipeline.

You also don't have any reservoirs up there anywhere near 500 F in the Arkoma. Now over in the Anadarko it's another story. I saw the BHA that came out of the well back in 71 or 72 that looked like a burnt match head. That's where I got my 5 mile club certificate.

110 forecast today but that is in civilization, out here it could easily get 5 degrees hotter.
Lucky for me I still have 11 Krispy Kreme lemon filled and Bavarian creme donuts, so I don't really need to leave the house.

across the state. Not Ernesto, this one is right off of Miami roughly...

52000 acres and hundreds of homes burned and the fires are still out of control.Rock, I heard it was near Tulsa. Are those fires anywhere near you? It's like a punishment from God, this heat. The libs blame everything on guns and the tea party. Maybe we can blame Obama for his various positions that go against religion and specific teachings of many churches. (I know this makes as much sense as that floating finger of blame always pointing at the tea party, but what the heck, sometimes being illogical is fun).

Seriously, hope you get some rain soon.

It's been so hot in St Louis that my sister, the world's greytest shopper, is staying home in the AC.

It started 35 miles away, it is so tinder dry and there is so much fuel in the undeveloped land that they travel fast and have everyone nervous, supposedly someone started this by throwing burning newspapers from a car so it was set purposely.
This is the big one, there are many more small ones everywhere.

Man, anyone who would start those fires should be "introduced" to one...if you know what I mean.

We had about 43 drops of rain this morning, most of it landed on my head and glasses but nothing else got wet, I quickly checked to make sure it wasn't blue.

According to the news tonight the fire was started by someone burning trash, they did it during a burning ban but since it started on Indian land they are not sure if charges will be filed, hundreds of homes burned and there is a question about this?
Indian land here is wherever their is a smoke shop or casino.

We had a 3.0 earthquake at 4:47 am, I thought we had another at 10:00 am while I was in the bathroom but that woman didn't have the washer balanced.

Parts of Las Vegas rec'd .34 inches.
The Vegas strip rec'd .04.
Where I live.....high winds and humidity. It's hot. No rain.

.34 is a lot and enough to start flash floods. The earth is so hard and dry the rain has to no place to go. They do have good storm sewers that keep up when the rain starts to run off the mountains. My town does not and has had houses cave in, brand new homes...I don't live in any of the risk areas.

Up until June, YTD rainfall was .24 inches. Very dry.

My back yard is flooded. The groud is so dry and hard the rain has no place to go.
We are having a thunderstorm.

My trees will be happy!

Parts of my town have had rain but not my part. Of course my town is 25 square miles, so that happens.

Las Vegas is under a flash flood warning from last night until 9 AM today. They had some campgrounds near the mountains that were getting flooded.

A couple days ago one neighborhood in Las Vegas. had a rain cloud that produced .83 of rain in less then 30 minutes...which flooded the streets. Some parts of town never took into consideration that it rains in the desert! The newer parts of town are set up pretty good for flood control.

It's nice turning the a/c off and having the front door open.

It was taken last night at the south end of my town. Pretty rare for Nevada.

We are still way behind on rainfall, it was supposed to rain the last two days but so far only a dribble. The chances are 70% today unless they changed the forecast overnight.

It's been hot during the day with record temperatures almost everyday, and that is after the earliest hard freeze in recorded history, we are in another drought but they say the temps will drop and 90% rain chances tomorrow.
What the hell is normal like? I have no idea what side of the scale winter will be on.

I'm thinking a good possibility of harsh in the way of cold but I'm not sure if this drought pattern is going to break. Winter moisture is annoying and really make it hard at the time but our water table is way down to the point of hurting the wildlife.

The Atlantic subtropical ridge is what caused the drought this year, it was so dominant it pushed the subtropical jet further north then usual, keeping the moisture out of the southern US. As Sandy indicated, the ridge has retreated back to it's usual position, so the moisture flow should be a lot better, hence the slow moving rain producer stretched across the central US right now.

I'm not in any stretch of the imagination a climatologist, but my amateur opinion on the matter would be really cold winter, with average precipitation rates.
