Weather in Boulder County is extreme this week!
Yesterday it was in close to 80; today we had 2-3 inches of hail; tomorrow night a spring snow is expected, 6 to 12 inches! I'm so glad I procrastinated again with the garden. It's sad, everyone's garden is in shreds now and I'm wondering if they will have to re-plant. So much work for some.
Anyone else get hail? It was dime-sized, hard, and lasted for what seemed like a half hour.
I'm now in Central New York, and we're just jumping from 50° days to 90° days, and back again.
They've never been there before~I left the state when I was about 16 weeks pregnant, and haven't been back. They're 8 now.
I see you live in Lafayette. That's where I lived too. Maybe we were neighbors and didn't know it.
We certainly were neighbors because Lafayette isn't that big. I lived backed-up to Waneka Lake for years, then divorced, and now I live in Old Town. I have two boys although they're older. You should PM me and when you bring your kids back maybe we could meet up! A lot has changed but it's still a sweet, diverse little community.
I was pounded with some pretty big hail driving from Lafayette back into Boulder tonight. Moved some potted plants into my garage and covered my bedded veggies.
a severe windstorm in 1988 that collapsed part of an overpass being built there. It's long enough ago that I can no longer remember the details, but it was pretty dramatic.
We lived there about years, but I never got over being impressed by the winds. I'd lie awake at night, listening to the wind, and then in the morning would hear the reports as to just how strong the winds were. It wasn't long before I could correctly estimate winds to within 5mph.
We moved from there to Kansas, and even with the violent Midwest weather, I never experienced winds like the ones in Boulder. I sort of miss it.
Right now I'm in Santa Fe, and on April 29 we got about 12 inches of snow here. Yay! It was mostly gone by the afternoon. And a few days later got some amazing hail. Just like the Midwest.
I actually enjoy weather.
You're so close. I've been thinking about hosting a get-together for Denver/Boulder and surrounding areas for DU-ers. Feel free to PM anytime.
and NM had a decent day. Tomorrow it's supposed to be in the 60s with clouds. That's decent, too.
Latest snow here was May 5-6 a couple of years ago. It's usually in the 90s by now. Going to be a shock when this air mass goes through and the summer switch gets thrown.
95/94/ etc. No rain to speak of in St Petersburg for the past three months and this is the sub tropics.
My thoughts. The trees have been cut down in order to develop the land and all the concrete acts as a heat sink
pushing the rain carrying winds to areas with nature. Ala Hernando County/Sarasota
That's further north, of course. I know there are fires around, too.
