Tell you what we do get here in Harrogate---mega strong winds all the time. They can be quite scary !!!
Mind Harrogate is known as the "windy town" and it sure is living up to it's name

Wind! I would just love to have that here. We here get winds only during the monsoons.

Weird cos you want the winds and we'd just love a bit of your heat

How do you cope with the monsoons--I've seen documentaries on India and they look quite amazing.
I know the rains are vital--but how do you deal with all the flooding??
Does it affect you personally??

Is is SO HOT here in south Texas that the asphalt is actually emitting vapors as the tar melts and is giving the townspeople headaches. My husband and I also recently quit smoking but still had some lighters left in the car. On Sunday, three of them exploded after being left in the car for a little under two hours while we went to see a movie.

We've had some deaths, too, down here due to heat stroke. I'll get dewy with sweat just walking outside for 60 seconds to walk to the end of the driveway to check the mail. It's miserable down here. lol

I am probably a lil closer then you think.

The Sumarian culture began here in about 5300BC.
Your country men had their time here in the early 1900's

You could have fooled me! I have the impression you are a very intelligent, HOT blonde. But history and geography is not everyones bag so I will only deduct minimal points

Even though I refer to it as an oven. It has been a fairly mild summer so far staying around 115 for a high with an index of about 120 (46-49celsius) I think it because all the dirt in the air, Blocking out the sun. I will not see rain until about october. The high summer temps I experianced my last 2 summers here, july is normally a steady 125-130 with august about 5-10degrees hotter yet.

I am all over Iraq

I am from the states. It has been a VERY dusty season. I fought here 2yrs and am here for a 3rd as a civilian.

It is not that bad. It is a pretty friendly place now.

The biggest problem is all my passion starts to overflow with no outlet. I am sure you can imagine.

Hi there

I heard that Iraq had got a real bad sandstorm that was expected to last for ages ---must be awful for you out there.
Please tell me you don't have to go to Afghanistan anytime in the future.
That would be a nightmare posting for ya.

I am not sure how long it is suppose to last, but the conditions here and neighboring countries are just right for some serious sandstorms. They are not fun. Speaking of afghanistan, I was just talking to a friend that left the army with me last yr about going back active soon so we can get a piece of afghanistan also. We were Tankers/Scouts. I feel I did alot of good here in Iraq and I owe it to the military to come back and do the same for Afghan. (my self image might preceed me just a lil
) Right now it is the Marines doing the pushing in afghanistan while the army is helping to hold and train.....
:bash: I left the military because I wanted to make more $$$ but am soon realizing that the adrenaline of combat and the gratification of fighting for those in need is what I love and what I am called to do.

I LOVE lightning. I miss it. Texas had some really good thunderstorms. I loved to sit outside on the portch and watch it roll in. (till it got to close then RUN inside!)

I HATE lightnin---it scares me soooo much.
My street got hit by it a few yrs ago and it wiped out all my electrical stuff.
It was like a bomb goin off

I dropped my coffee cup it was so loud.
Don't get me wrong--it's amazin to look at but it's just the damage it can do---wow

Mind where you live I imagine the lightnin is AWESOME !!
You're so lucky x
