Drought, brush/forest fires ravage North America’s West coast, as well as Australia South East Territory’s. Washington and Oregon states have suffered flooding. Much of the UK is knee deep to a tall Giraffe in flood waters.
December 25th and 26th tornado’s and flooding have killed as many as 20 in storms from Dallas, Texas to Atlanta, Georgia.
My Weather guy’s tell me. El Niño means The Little Boy, or Christ Child. El Niño episodes typically last nine to twelve months, but some prolonged events may last for years. While their frequency can be irregular, El Niño events occur on average every two to seven years.
That El Niño kid arrived at my Tiny Farm at 9am December 26th ending what has been a pleasant warmish Fall and early Winter. Wind has been mostly steady at about 40mph gusting to 50mph out of the north/north west for the past 20 hours. Temperatures have been dropping steadily from yesterday mornings 62 degrees to 33 degrees. Grin.. but on the upside I have received almost 1 inch of always needed rain.
Radar shows a line of freezing rain, sleet and snow about 45 miles to my west. At it’s present speed this line will hit here in about 2 hours. O-Joy! Just what I have been wishing for, an Ice and Snow storm.
My WX guy said that low temps will be in the 16 to 18 degree range for the next 7 days. YUK…
Happy New Year
