It's 70F in KS at 11pm est in August which is REALLY weird.
We had a mild winter and mostly mild summer so the bugs are out in force.
I'm scratching my arm as I type this. Hard to tell at work the (not currently using) meth heads from the folks that are all bug bit who've been roughing it out in the woods.

So with first morning coffee I check the radar and see a line of red coming from 50m/80k out, and put down the coffee and hop on the bike b4 the rain get here... get back and I have time to mow some lawn on the side of the driveway...

..an I'm mowin the lawn and I feel a few drops, and then big drops, and lightning... I head for the garage, mower in garage, head for the house, it's pouring cats and dogs... close the door and look over my shoulder and it's 'what the fuck!' The whole thing accelerates and there is a full blown sideways monsoon going on out there, the trees are doing things I've never seen them do before and it's all sideways grey...wow...what the fuck is goin on out there...and it stays that way for two or three minutes and lets up...and five minutes from the start it's done.

So I guess I'm not goin to work this morning...well, not my job anyway...

The bad news is 40'/12m of tree tore up the neighbors fence and blocked me in, the good news is the nastiest part, the top 30'/10m fell beyond the driveway into the woods beyond where I don't have to clean it up :)

What grows up, must come down.

Free firewood, right there on the lawn :)

(two other trees snapped, in the upper left, wikid wind).

...I don't have to mow around the damn tree anymore :)

If you don't like the weather, wait two and a half minutes :)

^^^That's the best weather report we've had in awhile. Glad it turned out relatively ok.

^^^^^ yee haa!, I love wild weather, but that's ridiculous ^^^^^

NZ has surpassed the average years rainfall and it's only September.....

The ground is saturated, which has lead to a few road blocking slips on the major arteries throughout the capital and elsewhere. There has also been a number hill sides collapsing on houses, and a higher than usual amount of coastal erosion leaving houses hanging and insurance companies adjusting policies and ducking for cover.

Com'on summer! this weather's getting old.....

Know the feeling, we'll start sending the warm weather down next month, we're getting ready for the colorful "grand finale" up here, (are we "down here" to you because we're north, and "south is up" for you?).

Maaan, if so, you guys are sure backwards, lol :D :D :D :D

Along one of my bike routes, these colors be changing pretty soon!

Cooling down this week in SoCal. Big heat coming next week, though. 100+ degrees expected.
I hope they get rain up north to help put out those fires.
