Sorry for off topic, but has no mod complained about your avatar?

How selective.

Not that I have any problem with it, but I was forced to change my avatar because it featured a prisoner that was semi naked.

Yours´ features a completely naked woman. It´s actually against ATS rules. I´m not trying to get you busted, just wanted to show how selective and inconsistent mods on this site are.


Why make the comment if you don't have any problem with it? The avatar is an artistic collage and the most striking features are the tree and the hair, there is no "completely naked woman" in the image. Frankly your current avatar and your reference to a semi naked prisoner point to a Freudian obsession with control and punishment, this post only adds fuel to that fire.

That was a horrible storm this morning! How about the one Sunday night? The thunder was long and rumbly, sometimes without lightening. And the rain came before the storm, none during the storm. It lasted quite awhile too and with breaks in between. Each time we would finally fall asleep, we'd get hit with another round and sit straight up in bed. Yesterday 86 and now it's 45 and going back into the 30s tonight.

I dont think its the time of day thats relevant, but the time of year.

Peace, NRE.


April 3rd, 4th, 1974. The super outbreak. The worst outbreak of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes in the history of the US.

en.wikipedia.org...

This is THE EXACT time of year to expect severe weather in the US. It happens every year, and every year, the same yahoos claim the weather is messed up. April through late June is the climatological peak for thunderstorm activity in the US, and it makes perfect sense. This time of year, the jet stream is right over the US and we get big clashes of air masses. Warm moist air is drawn up from the gulf of Mexico underneath cold dry air pulled down from Canada, which creates unstable air and thunderstorms along the cold fronts and warm fronts associated with large synoptic scale storm system.

Get ready, because looking at the long term forecast models, about every 3 days there's going to be a big storm system moving across the US. We're in a very active El Nino pattern.

This is TOTALLY NORMAL.

Here in Western New York, we had a longer winter than normal, Buffalo (my city) was on the national news more times than I can count this winter, but it's not out of the norm. As far as thundershowers, we've been having them too the past few days, but I just attribute that to a late spring. Of course, we're still getting snow predictions for the rest of the week, so we'll see what happens.


I have noticed erratic behavior in the weather patterns, but I remember years that were exactly like this one. I really don't think there is anything to worry about.......yet.




Peace be with you.

Our weather here (northeastern Indiana) has been WAY out of the ordinary this year so far.

As an example... Sunday we had a high of 45 degrees... then an overnight low of 72.

What the HECK? Yes, the temperature RAISED by almost 30 degrees during the night. Then, today, the high was 46. Our normal high for this time of year is 60. Other than that 72 degree LOW during the night (lol), we have yet to see above 55.

Just an example. Yeah, we have also had some really nasty, NASTY storms going through in the past week.

Large temperature swings are quite normal.

I'm in the same area and a bit of a weather geek. Spring around here can be quite volatile, but I must say that there was something odd about that storm the other night. I stayed up late to watch the lightning - it would streak all the way across the length of the sky and back again - visible for a good, long full 2 - 3 second count.

I mentioned my observations to both my wife and coworkers the next morning, but most folks don't pay as close attention to the weather as I do, so I didn't really get any feedback one way or another. I'm glad some else noticed it.

As I mentioned, spring can be quite ferocious around here and I consider myself a pretty keen but level-headed observer of weather, but there was something odd about that storm that I can't quite put my finger on.

Looking forward to a summer full of good 'ol nasty thunderstorms though...

As an avid storm chaser, I've been on the backside of some violent tornadic supercell thunderstorms that literally produced probably 30 cloud to cloud streaking lightning strikes A SECOND. Constant non stop cloud to cloud streaking lightning. When you have the right conditions with a lot of instability, it's quite normal.

It's 5AM on the east coast of the US, and here near Baltimore we're getting severe thunderstorms. Like, really violent and severe. Besides a few weeks ago at 6:30AM, I can't remember ever having thunderstorms in the morning. Last time I checked, that's NOT normal.

So here's my question, is anyone else having very strange and erratic weather, and if so, what could be causing it?


The storm you're referring to passed through Ohio as well .. it crossed a large part of the US actually.. I don't see what's so odd about it, that storm was pretty well in my range of normal .. it was much more normal than the snow the week ahead..

I fail to get the point of this thread =)

That sounds amazing! I do some local chasing/observing, but I really would like to get out to the plains and check out some of those monsters. Got a wife and young kid, so don't think it'll happen anytime soon - Don't think the wife would be too thrilled if I took the lad out to chase tornados, at least not until he's 16 or so.

You're right of course. This sort of weather is normal, especially this time of year. I know it's not very scientific or concrete, but there was just something odd about that storm. I've been observing around here for a while and I consider myself familiar with local patterns and conditions and not prone to hyperbole in this regard (I supppose you'll just have to take my word on this). I'm not trying to chalk it up to any sort conspiracy or anything, it was just a gut reaction to that specific storm that I was pleased someone else noticed.

Perhaps it was simply a storm that was structured differently than what we normally see in this region. Either way, it was a really beautiful lightning display...

Let´s take it further off topic. I wouldn´t have, but then you started to insult me. I actually apologized to the OP for the derailing.



Why make the comment if you don't have any problem with it?


Like I said, I don´t have a problem with her avatar, but mods should have, based on the same criteria that made mine against ATS rules.

It doesn´t seem that hard to understand, since that is exactly what I said.



The avatar is an artistic collage and the most striking features are the tree and the hair, there is no "completely naked woman" in the image. Frankly your current avatar and your reference to a semi naked prisoner point to a Freudian obsession with control and punishment, this post only adds fuel to that fire.


I really don´t want further derail this thread, but I have to now.

Is the woman in the avatar dressed? It´s very simple.

From ATS Avatar Guidelines,


Erotic, Suggestive, Violent or Illegal Content ATS and BTS is a diverse community with a mission to help people understand important issues from current events and history. Due to an evolution from women in bathing suits to women wearing less while in suggestive poses that often detracts from the mission, the following content guidelines apply to the content of both avatars and signatures:

1) No photos of persons wearing less than shirt-and-shorts. 2) No artwork (non-photo) of persons wearing less than bathing attire.


You think you are smart and can profile me, lol.

The guy in my avatar is John Walker Lindh, the American Taliban. It felt it was fitting with my username, and also a symbol of someone disliking his own society and becoming an insurgent on the intellectual level.

If I´m obsessed, it´s with freedom and individual human empowerment, especially not with
control and punishment.

Your little psycho analysis is way off.

Like I said, I went off on a rant, because a random mod disliked my avatar, and made me change it, based on the same criteria that I see in some other posters´ avatars.

I shouldn´t have done that, but you shouldn´t have called me out after I was already done and apologized for it.

Take the young lad and the lady on a storm chasing tour for vacation! You'll have a blast, and you'll realize how "normal" the weather really is. Seriously. If you're a weather, nature, or Earth junky, it can be a life changing event to witness and track a tornadic supercell thunderstorm. You'll learn so much about the weather and how it works.

Silverlining tours or Cloud 9 tours.

I live about 45 min north of Denver and it was low 80's on Saturday and was snowing on Sunday this past weekend.

Very odd even for Colorado which usually has temperature fluctuations regularly.

Down here is Ft. Worth, we have just had our first decent rain in months night before last. Typical up and down temps for this time of year though. Lots of wind and low humidity conditions which I think is a little odd for this time of year. We should be seeing quite a bit of heavy T-storm activity this time of year .

I live outside of baltimore closer to DC and have lived here all my life. This weather is not normal. Someone said something about weather not caring about what time of day it is. But as far as I can remember thunderstorms were normally in the late afternoon/evening around ere. Another thing that is weird is that there have been a lot of days where the warmest part of the day will be in the morning and it will get colder as the day goes on. That has never been the case around here. There have been days where one day its 70 and sunny and the next day its snowing. Theres usually an ebb and flow to weather where it will be cold for a few days and progressively get warmer for a few days. Now its a crap shoot everyday. It's also been extremely windy around here over the past few months. I'm not saying the world is ending but the weather is definitely acting strange Anyone who is observant can blatantly notice it.

WHAT??? we have bad storms all the time in the early morning and quite a few over night. We had that bad thunderstorm roll over us yesterday morning..it was so dark at about 10am we had to turn on the inside lights.

Nothing new for us....it was 75F when we woke up and then in the 30's last night..welcome to spring!

Another thing thats weird is during these early morning storms I can see lighting but hear no thunder. As far as I know the only lighting that doesn't produce thunder is heat lightning way up in the sky. It was no warmer than 40 degrees when we had these storms.

All my life (that I can recall) right around my birthday which is March 23, it would get warm. I would lay out in a bikini and get a nice sunburn. It wasn't super hot, but it would be in the 70's at least. It would be nice enough outside to wear shorts and a t-shirt, and the birds would be chirping and the flowers would be blooming like mad. For the past few years, I've noticed it's all different. It's been cooler than usual. We had one summer a couple of years ago that felt like spring almost all the way through. It was awesome! But not normal. And now we have this year...with temperatures of 80 one day and then it snows the next. It's not the norm. (I'm in southwest Indiana btw.)

I'm in TX and on sunday night, it was clear and about 82 degrees.
Then, randomly, it started hailing and raining for about 5 minutes.
Then the next day we had a cold front that is still leaving us a little cool over here.

It's weird.

Thanks for the tip. I may be able to negotiate taking the lad when he has a few more years behind him, but getting the lady to come along is gonna be a tough sell. We'd probably have to broker a deal where the boys head out to Kansas or Oklahoma while she heads off to the beach somewhere.

It is definitely something I've had high on my list of things to experience before my time ends. The approach of a heavy thunderstorm still makes my spine tingle like almost nothing else - It never gets old! I can only imagine how the towering presence of one of those super cells really puts things into perspective.
