I know exactly what you mean. I lived for 4 years in Tyler, TX and another year and a half on Lake Fork near Sulphur Springs. The last summer, on Lake Fork, before going to Michigan, we had 3 weeks where the daily high was at or near 115° F. I'm surprised you only moved to a mountain top and not the North Pole!

What's it like to be in a Texas hail storm. This video show you in slow motion.

And apologies to the OP (Edouard) for hijacking his California thread to talk about Texas. He might be so busy tuning up the fuel injection on his Buick, running Windows on his MacBook to notice we helped his thread take a small detour from the West Coast to the Gulf Coast.

My kind of pool . . .

Dear Herb, Blick, dfw, and WeatherCat extreme weather watchers (preferably from a long distance away!)

And apologies to the OP (Edouard) for hijacking his California thread to talk about Texas. He might be so busy tuning up the fuel injection on his Buick, running Windows on his MacBook to notice we helped his thread take a small detour from the West Coast to the Gulf Coast.

No worries.  This thread is more gossip than anything else.  Still it is interesting to see the weather in other parts of the country and the world.  The latest discussion isn't encouraging me to move to Texas in any way shape or form!  :o

Yesterday was a busy wagon day and I did some more data collection using my MacBook on how the fuel injection was performing while driving.  However, today I have been running ragged trying to prepare for a brief rain event tonight.  The goal wasn't cleaning so much as fertilizing.  It could be one of the last rain events around here and rain water is always the best to activate fertilizer.  I'm hoping for more rain, but I'm starting to prepare for that long dry season that isn't far away anymore.

Cheers, Edouard   [cheers1]

A little more rain (Re: Northern CA 2015-16 rainy season)

Dear WeatherCat drought watchers,

A "late season" storm blew through the San Francisco bay area today and provided still more rain.  We ended up with 0.33" (8.4mm) and might pickup a bit more before the storm is over.

In addition, while the models aren't in very good agreement, they all show a chance of showers next week.  So perhaps California will end up with more than its usual quota of "April showers."

Cheers, Edouard

Good news. This year's El Niño-influenced storms in the Bay Area, have turned into moisture-laden snow storms as they moved eastward, over Utah and Colorado. Keep it coming.
