Queensland, Australia.. what can I say? It's been a very weird year so far.

We were in drought here until an old fashioned Summer broke into the late and cool weather, arriving with it's heavy rains... followed by massive flooding most of you are aware of. So the ground is filled to capacity, the water table has risen, the dams are all full and the grass is still green this far into Autumn.

The local trees have been confused for some time, with many flowering multiple times as the weather cycles between wet and dry. We had a couple of weeks of Summer before it all changed again with a cool Autumn showing it's colours. And right now it's been hinting hard at Winter still a month away yet the Sun when it shines is hot as hell. Weird stuff.

Recently we had 3 earthquakes in the north of the state.. that really shook people up.. no pun intended there. I took it as a wake up call to take more action in my life's direction since I am aware that things are building to a climax.. have been for many years.

Weird too is that there are not many birds around this year.. compared to having many in the trees around my place.. not seen any Bees since Spring either. Spiders on the other hand are having a great time.. must be excellent reproducing weather for them now.. there are so many inside and over the house, in the car, spider webs on the exterior too... I wash them off but they are back within days. They must like travelling

I'm in the Pac. Northwest. It's been colder and more rainy for this time of year. I hear it's a record*since 30 yrs ago or so) rainy/cold season for at least the month of April. Supposedly-weather reports- that is going to change soon, hope so.

About as usual in the Midwest, though a bit cooler than I would have expected. Rain seems par for the course, though.

They've been cloud seeding over Pacific NW (Washington County) as well, since the sun's been trying to peek out as of late.. still Cold here and wet..

Personally, I think we're in a drought.. TPTB are just staving it off .. or trying ..

Here in central WV we are almost drowning.
We have had rain, so much rain, it is crazy!
We usually have some flooding at this time of the year, but this year it has been especially wet.
I figure that in April we had about 7-10 days of dry weather, and the rest was rain, rain, rain.
I would gladly send some of it to those who are experiencing drought, if I could.
Wonder why the weather is so crazy this year? Could the earthquake in Japan, the radiation leaks there have affected the weather all over the world?

Dry n' windy here in Eire, bad gorse fires. Climbed a mountain by the coast other day, lots of plumes of smoke, looked like the goddamn Viking's were raiding.

Unusually dry here in parts of the UK . Only 21% of the expected rainfall for April , which has lead to an outbreak of heathfires .

besides the mentioning of dry, wet, normal, i noticed a few interesting comments.
2 stuck in my mind, the plants flowering multiple times and the one about the spiders.
here a few things actually flowered since yesterday and one thing i've been noticing for a few years now is;
the ants are taking over!
don't know if they thrive due to the dry conditions or if it is due to other factors, but i have never seen so many.
from these tiny little black ants to different sizes of red, including fire ants to these big black, carpenter ants that sting like a wasp.

I'm sorry to hear it's dry like that where you live. Other places experiencing the same thing find it very
disheartning to see their water table drop like a rock and to have to ration water usage.
Watch out for brush fires or lightning strikes.
Here is NW Florida seems like fronts moving through at breakneck speed sometimes. Will be much warmer
again soon but for a few nights the temps will be 52..seems a little cool to me. If I remember correctly
few years back it warmed up ( got hot ) extra early in the season. Heard somebody say they remember
when winter used to be winter and it did not warm up until spring. The weather channel ( don't have it
myself ) said back around 1925 some 700 people were lost during a tornado outbreak here in the USA.
wow. Don't quote me and I sure don't understand cycles like elnino, elnina, haarp, jet streams and how
the gulf oil disaster may have affected it thus the warm waters of the gulf movement thus global weather.

Scrub fires all over Britain. Literally seen one drop of rain in over a month here in the Midlands. Not enough to get you remotely wet.

How long have you lived in New Mexico? It's always this dry right before the monsoons. Every year I've been here (13), it's been this dry. And yes, it's dry. We use lots of lotion, chapstick, vitamin E and humidifiers this time of year.


I don't know if you live around Cliff, but here's the weather chart for precipitation in that area:

What qualifies as monsoon rains in NM?

Every time that I was there, it was hot(somewhat) and dry. But it was beautiful.
