Fire, Typhoon, Hurricane, Volcano, Monsoon…the thread to discuss Nature’s Wrath.
I just heard one of those emergency alert things on the radio, that interrupts the normal programming and then somebody tells you about something awful happening.
It’s a tornado. Like an on-the-ground fucking-shit-up tornado.
It’s in Clackamas County, Oregon, just south of Portland.
The report was read over the radio by a nice robot person with a very soothing voice.
This will also affect Oregon:
HIGH WIND WARNING SATURDAY: Rain before noon, then showers and possibly a thunderstorm after noon. Temperature falling to around 53 by 5pm.

OMG five years later
Anyway it’s 84°F and 26% relative humidity here
According to the calculator thing that’s a “wet bulb” temperature of 62°F
I wish meteorologists would forecast and publish the wet bulb temperatures—that’s what really gets us if it’s too high
The pollen count has been atmospheric.
I shouldn’t joke. It’s nothing to sneeze at.
Sounds like Dusty Springfield to me.
It’s been raining a lot here and supposed to rain all week. But it’s also staying above freezing, so at least there’s that. April showers and all, if they don’t drown all the flowers.
If we are the sort of people who observe Beltane at the second full moon after the spring equinox … that is tonight on the U.S. West Coast
Friday night most other places
No pretty moons for us though, it’s raining here
Cloudy in Warren, MI, but the nearly-full moon is visible between the clouds. It’s really nice out too, nice & temperate with a light wind.
