Here in Connecticut we've had a pretty nice summer. Last summer was awful, lots of rain and humidity. Here's what I noticed though and DG, it's wierd that you said it. The sun has a different quality to it now, the light seems more "fallish" even though the temps are normal. Noticed this about two weeks ago. Our sure sign of fall here is dead squirrels on the road, when they all come out and start looking for winter stores, more of them wind up under tires. That has not started yet, and the leaves on our trees are still green. I hope this winter is mild, I am not looking forward to a big oil bill!

I have heard this last year as well, and we here in the Northeast had a medium strength winter. I do worry however, because our weather patterns are changing every year. We had little snow and a lot of cold weather mixed in with warm days.

This past Spring we had about 6 weeks of straight rain/clouds/cold weather from April into May. I have not seen so much rain in this area EVER in my life.

I agree with infinite. We will have a very early cold winter October/November. But then I think it will warm back up to the 60's by oh, late December, with one or two ice storms from then on out.

As for the locusts, they run on a 7 year cycle, and this is the 7th year. So, no real big thing there.

I dont think that the rotation of the earth is off, but I do think that the tilt is off, as crazy as that sounds.

I read on the news a few weeks ago (will look for it and post it if anyone is interested) where the nations top meteorologists, were more concerned about the overnight temps rather than the extreme day time temps we have had. They said that is what is most dangerous.

It just seems that the earth is retaining the heat more than it ever has.

just a tidbit, my cat's all got fat in the past month as if they are bulking up for the cold to come.

2 of my cats looked like kittens for most of their lives, very small in stature though they are near 5 years old
just in the past month they have almost doubled in size

i thought they were sick but my wife says they do that when it gets ocld out and durring the time right before it gets really cold

bit of superstition, but if animals can tell when theres going to be an earthquake then how much more of a stretch is it for them to predict the weather?

And they don't all run on the same cycle, so you will hear them every year just about.

That's what the tsumani of '04 did for us. God, that feels like yesterday.

As populations increase so does the heat dome created by manmade materials like skyscrapers, concrete and asphalt, to accommadate them all.

These foreign objects on the landscape retain heat for longer periods after nightfall and the atmosphere above them doesn't cool off as fast as it once did. Add to it the exhaust from vehicles, moisture from cooling systems and you have the haziness DJ might have been seeing (obscuring the sun) on her day at the beach?

Maybe you will laugh but usually we see antzs here until mid September or October, when the first rains start... I was surprised to see that there were no antz since a few days ago... (They might come back) Are they thinking the summer is over?


Something similar happens with the Gulls. Usually they fly around and land on the beach mid September.
They started already flying around a few days ago...

I´ll keep an eye on this.

You will hear them just about every year, but like clockwork, every 7 years they go crazy. It is funny, they are like drugs to dogs. My dog was just a year or 2 old the last time, and she about made herself sick on them, it was too funny. They are the best treats for dogs. This year, my husband caught one and she went crazy! Came running as fast as she could straight for him licking her chomps. Guess they are unforgetable to dogs.

As for the foreign objects.....that has been my thought for a while. It has made the ground like a dry oven.
We're cookin from both ends.

Just thought you guys would like to know that there is a frost warning for newfoundland tonight issued by enviroment canada. I think this is the first one this year in southern canada.

Frost Warning

We are going to have an early winter that is going to be longer and harder than ones in the past; with the summers being shorter and more dry. I don't mind too much, I can't tolerate heat, or humidity. 17C is the highest my body can take, so cool temperatures is fine with me.

I feel that Britain could be in a grip of a new ice age.

Soon, actually, I think everyone might be on a new Ice Age. It is only a matter of time. I am ok with that because I want a very different change of scenery and I don't really like summer all that much, especially being here in the "Deep South". It is very humid all the time. Everyone else likes it but I would much rather live somewhere near high elevation and real cold weather.

I used to think like that at one time since I also live in the south and suffer from the high humidity and temps most of the year. However a few business trips to Wisconsin in January and February cured that thinking pretty fast. Minus 4, minus 9 or whatever the temperature was during the daytime is not fun at all. They don't even have air conditioning in some hotels up there and I roasted while it was snowing outside. I couldn't turn down the heat enough in the first place I stayed at. It may seem cold in the south when it's below freezing but that doesn't compare to feeling the cold that is so cold it freezes not only the lakes and ponds but rivers as well. The cold wind cuts like a knife and feels like needles scrapping against your skin even with a thick coat on. I do enjoy temps in the 50's and 60's though.

Actually as a college student in the south, I got to experience minus 9 degrees in North Carolina. When it warmed up to a balmy 15 degrees afterwards, I was only wearing a light windbreaker and felt warm.

Sounds like you got your fair share of weather. Well, I lived in NY two years ago for the winter which really awesome except for the evil people.


We got to have an awesome blizzard and I built my very first igloo. That feeling is the strongest I have ever felt. But when it started to warm up, we moved back down to GA. And then we had a plague of mosquitos and a lot of hot weather. I have lived lived in GA for 8 years total but was originally from CA, which does not explain my liking for cold weather.

Perhaps all this change in weather is due to our Earth preparing for an Ice Age?

I have noticed things happen that typically don't happen until October. Such as the leaves changing colors, the spiders getting fat and preparing for winter. By the way, I live in southern california. The spiders are a big indication that fall is here and winter is soon to come. It's odd though, the weather is still 80-90 degrees F. It's never that hot in October....

I have read articles about Earth preparing for an Ice Age. Some scientists say we are past due for an Ice Age. Scary to think, but I am pleased to see so many people alert to what's going on with our planet.

We've had a succession of mild winters in recent years, and just experienced the warmest July on record.

A study has just be produced proving that spring arrives earlier than it did 30 years ago.

The Met office LRF suggests a milder, wetter winter than last year.

Why on earth would you think we're going to see longer winters and shorter summers or the start of a new ice age?

(btw I do agree about preferring cooler temps - but 17c isn't exactly warm, though it is pleasant enough for room temperatures. Low 20s outdoors would be fine in summer)

Here's and interesting point of view into the matter suggesting that the sun is actually dimming, growing colder. It takes the view from a religious point of view. I'm catholic but I'm not taking this a hardcore fact. Interesting read though:



www.cuttingedge.org..." target="_blank" class="postlink">BBC NEWS SCIENCE WARNS: THE SUN IS "DIMMING"!

That link doesn't seem to work, but I think the article is this one which in turn relates to a BBC news story issued to coincide with a Horizon documentary programme about Global Dimming

This is caused by pollution in the atmosphere (created by human activity). It has so far reduced the impact of global warming, but as industrial processes become cleaner there will be less pollution and thus warming may increase faster than previously thought...

The following link is from a 2006 U.S. public television show (I posted this link before on a different ATS thread in this Fragile Earth section.) called "Dimming the sun". On that page, click the link on the right side of the page called "Program Transcript" for a free transcript of the entire 1-hour show:

www.pbs.org...

Four scientists are interviewed on that show about their long term data collection efforts on solar dimming. Over the last 50 years, although they cite studies showing solar output itself has actually remained at a consistent level, Earth's ground level reception of solar radiation has been steadily dropping. The four scientists (in Israel, Germany, Australia and the U.S.) have worked individually or in groups to document dropping solar radiation values around the Earth. The U.S. scientist studied minimum daily temperatures before, during, and after the 9/11 attacks (with the temporary cessation of air travel in the U.S.); he found a fast rise in air temperature in the less polluted air during no-fly days after 9/11.

...Strangely enough, air pollution may actually be needed worldwide until humanity's release of carbon dioxide is significantly reduced.

I was driving home from working out today, and i noticed that it is very fall like out here in calgary now. All the trees are starting to turn yellow and drop their leaves. last night we got down to 2C and only 14C for the high. This is one of the earliest change in coulours (starting mid august) that i've ever seen. This is too early for fall, something is defninitly off. But if winter is going to be like last year, i say bring it on.

The weird weather conitnues.

Yesterday, I saw this huge flock of canadian geese fly right over my head as I was getting out of my car. I never see them this early. I think people might start to notice a few more significant changes soon. I think we are in for a cold winter.
