    Multiple seasons in a week

    Over the past few days we've had multiple seasons in a week. We've had days where the temps got down in to the upper 40s for lows and low 60s for highs. Then this weekend it got nice and warm again. It was in the upper 80s yesterday afternoon around here and some spots in Iowa were up in the 90s. It was still warm out today around here with highs in the upper 70s. According to the NWS they're expecting us to be in the 70s and 80s next week. Might be seeing rain tonight and tomorrow then clear most of the week. I'll have to see what the weather does tomorrow after work if I'm gonna ride or not.

    Fall preview

    We're having our first preview of fall's coming attractions today. Right now it's 63 degrees out and it's been down in the 50s for lows. It's been raining most of the morning but it looks like most of it is sliding on out to the east now. I had a bit of an internal debate about whether I should take out the window air conditioner in my room now or wait awhile. Yeah, think I'll wait. It'll probably be a thousand degrees in the shade sometime in the next couple weeks if I take it out now. Maybe wait until the end of September or early October then pull it out.

    Another August Thunderstorm

    Seems like the worst warm weather stuff always hits right in August. We just had some bad storms roll through the area. Here's a screenshot of the NWS radar from about 45 minutes ago. We had wind and 1/4" hail here. No major damage that I can see to anything. Thought we were going to be without power and internet for a while but it came back before too long. Lots of electrical lines and trees down in the area. The worst of it was up north of where I am, such as up in Fayette county where there were collapsed buildings and roofs getting peeled off. Lots of people without power here. Temperature dropped 20 degrees over the past hour.

    Iowa rainbow

    I was out driving this evening and saw a great big rainbow out in the county. Could’ve done without the storm earlier today but it was nice to see that.

    Hey TV People

    When you’re drawing on the weather map it’s probably a good idea to avoid phallic looking stuff.

    Just Wait a Few Days

    The old saying is if one doesn't like the weather in Iowa just wait a few days. We're not in the part of Iowa that's under a watch but my sister is down in Waukee.

    Warming Up in Parts of Iowa

    Next week parts of Iowa are going to be getting up close to or in the low 70s. Not the part of Iowa I live in which is going to be about 10 degrees cooler. Fornicate. The week after I was in Des Moines to cat and house sit my sister this happens. Mother Nature sucks sometimes.

    How cold is it?

    How cold is it here in Iowa? Cold enough I'm now getting messages saying hey plug in your car if you want it to start next time... Yeah, you know it's cold when you start getting those messages from GM.
  9. Yeah it's quite cold here in Iowa. The weather service says it's -8 here now. That's before wind chill. With the wind child it feels like -28 out. It's so cold out I'm getting alerts from GM that the cold might immobilize my vehicle if it's not plugged in. I wish I could escape to a warm climate right now.
  10. 47of74


    It was minus 17 when I woke up this morning. Currently it’s minus 15 out. That’s before windchill comes in to. We’ll have to see if we can get up above zero today. I must be crazy since I’m looking to move further north now.
  11. Yeah, mother nature you can stop anytime now. And of course after this the precipitation goes away but it's supposed to get really cold around here. So looking forward to spring now.

    Coming Attractions

    We didn’t get much snow Saturday night. We just had a couple inches here in Iowa and most of it was clear by noon. Of course they’re still saying we’ll have a snowpocalypse on Monday and Tuesday so we’ll have to see what happens then.
  13. 47of74

    After the storm

    Well the latest storm has passed through on its way out east. We had about 7.4 inches where I live. Looks like the heaviest snow was in the Cedar Rapids, Williamsville, Charlotte, and Solon areas with 11 inches of snow. My sister in Waukee said they had about 10 inches where they were. And of course some moron was clocked going 114 miles an hour on Interstate 35 cause they wanted to get back to school.

    There be a snowstorm a brewin'

    We had just over an inch of snow yesterday around here. Road conditions went downhill fast. My dad said he measured about 1.2 inches this morning. And tomorrow the forecasters are thinking we're going to get hit with some heavy snow here in eastern Iowa. Right now they think we'll get anywhere from 3 to 8 inches with higher amounts possible in places. Yay. So tonight after dinner I'm going to head in to get some provisions. Including the dijion potater salad I'm craving once again.

    Sunrise at the Solstice

    We’ve had a couple days of great sunrises. Especially yesterday morning. I took this as the sun was starting to appear yesterday.

    Our first Winter 2020 snow storm

    We had our first snowstorm of the season here Friday into Saturday. There was anywhere from 4.5 inches up to a little over 9 inches of snow. (We were in the spot that had 9 inches). They had about 50 cars going off the road during the storm. I went in town Friday afternoon to send in my work computer and take care of a couple other things. Including getting dinner for Saturday in case the weather was still bad Saturday evening. It was pretty much over by noon on Saturday and the roads were fine later that afternoon. I went out and got a bunch of pictures yesterday so I'd have good Christmas card photos. I hope the snow sticks around through the end of the year. My niece was out having a good time in the snow, rolling around and trying to eat all the snow in her parents yard.
  17. We had about 2.5 inches of snow last night into this morning where I am here in Iowa and our first winter weather advisory of the season locally. As usual with early season snowfalls it probably won't last all that long and melt right away. I knew something weather related was about to hit the fan yesterday when I saw a DOT truck out on the highway spraying down the northbound lanes with pre-treat and the southbound lanes had the streaks from that treatment already. If it does melt by Thursday I might be able to get my morning socially distant turkey trot in then.

    Warm November day

    Currently it’s 72° F here in Dubuque. So I’m sitting at the winery on their patio having a cold one. No one else here right now and no TVs with the latest news on either. It’s a bit windy out but otherwise not too bad. Not too many more nice days like this for a while so sitting out here beats the fuck out of waiting for the inevitable. (Which hopefully is fuck face finding out he’s a one term Pres and future convict). And I got a good ride in today as well.

    First snow of the season

    Got some snow this morning here in eastern Iowa. It was coming down pretty good this morning but most of it didn't stick since the ground is still fairly warm. Looks like the next few days the weather will be cold and windy before warming up a bit by Thursday. Mother Nature, couldn't you have waited until November before doing all this.

    Out with the AC for the season

    Yesterday I decided to pull out the window AC from my room. Because of the way the HVAC in the house was laid out my room doesn't get as much from the HVAC as the rest of the house, and I didn't want to switch to another room just because of that after fixing it up the way I liked. So in the summer I have a window unit in and in the winter a space heater going. So if it's 1000 degrees in the shade next week in Iowa, here's why. We have a joke here in Iowa that one can experience all four seasons in the same week, if you don't like the season just wait a day or two and your preferred season will come along. Of course the actual weather forecast is for 70s next week, and my room is perfectly fine at those temperatures. I have fans that I can use to help as well.

    Now the rain hits

    Last night into today we got two inches of rain. That might make the yard perk up again since it's been kind of dry lately so when I get back from Des Moines I might have some grass to cut. I haven't had to mow the lawn in a couple weeks because of how dry it's been, which slows the growth down quite a bit. (That just prompted me to ask my sister in law if she's still interested in learning how to run the mower here like she offered one time. If I have to move for work then I'd want someone nearby who can help my parents with the lawn). And of course they're saying rain both up here and down in Des Moines over this coming week. Fornicate. Why couldn't it hit some other time? Hopefully it's not raining all the time down in Des Moines and I have some chances to get out and do some riding.

    We got hit by a derecho

    We had a line of thunderstorms roar through Iowa today. Bunch of trees are down throughout the state and a number of buildings were damaged - all by the high winds. Here's a slideshow of some of the damage from the NBC station, and one from the ABC station. A couple spots in our yard had some water but we didn't have much damage here. We didn't lose any trees or have other damage. My sister had called us from Des Moines to let us know the storms were pretty bad so we were able to bring chairs and stuff inside beforehand.
  23. 47of74

    Yeah summer is here now

    Yes summer has arrived. Supposed to be up in the high 80s and 90s (plus 30c) the next couple weeks. I think most of my bike riding for the next couple weeks will be early in the morning or later on in the day. Most of my trips around the yard on the industrial strength salad shooter (aka the lawnmower) will also be in the evening. Too goddamn hot out to be fooling around outside right now.

    The insects have arrived

    Now that it's getting warmer out the insects are out in force now. Had to get a trusty bottle of bug soother from the local Hy-Vee to hose myself down with before going out on rides or walks to keep from having all the bugs (gnats, flies, etc) away. Still I almost feel like I have to do this some days before heading out....
  25. Winter isn't quite done with Iowa yet. We had snow off and on all day. It didn't amount to much and did not stick though when it hit the ground. What little did stick melted right away once the snow came out. I went for a quick bike ride this afternoon and the pavement was dry. Of course the wind gusts probably helped with that. On Easter Sunday it looks like we could have some more snow which might even be accumulating. A few inches are possible. I do have to say since we're all going to be stuck at home anyways this would be a good year for it. Save the nice weather on Easter for years when we can be around friends and family. We're far enough north that Easter weekend can vary considerably in the type of weather conditions experienced. Some years it's cold and generally a miserable time to be outside for any length of time. Other years no jacket is required and it's almost shorts and t-shirt weather on Easter. Some years the trees, grass, etc have not yet come back to life. Others the trees have their leaves and we've already mowed for the first time. Next year Easter is supposed to be on April 4. It will be interesting to see how the weather shakes out then. Hopefully it'll be a much more pleasant Easter that we can celebrate normally, with the horrors of Fuck Face and his fucked up response to the corona virus being in our rear view mirror.
