Just copied off my weather link



15 May 1:48 pm
101 Degrees
48 Dew point
17 % Humidity.




And we have had two fire calls already, one controled burn, and one fire 3/4mile North of Phillipsville on the west side of the freeway into the power lines.

It looks like the frost is over and I can go ahead and plant my garden!
Oops! It just went to 103 deg. At 2:48.
104 at 3:48.

what happened with the power line fire? did the power lines cause the fire due to a failed tree/limb?

The record high temp. for Brookings was 93 degrees set in 1922. I just looked at the temp. and at 4 pm today it was 100 degrees at the airport, our official weather place. So, I bet we matched your 101 degrees today but I don't have any history for the day.
The electronic message board at ACE Hardware said 108 when I went by but you know that is not right.

Ha, Ha! After growing up in the blazing hot hills of Eastern Humboldt, I can say it was a rather cool 75 degrees here by the bay.

Ha, Ha, yourself. We like this hot weather. The hotter the better. But of course, you could expect a refrigeation guy to say that.

I'm like a mortician at a passenger train crash trying to not smile.

Check out my new running link over there on the left. Any time you click on it, it will give you the last three days weather records.

99 degrees at 7 o'clock last night as I drove home along the 101 on the edge of the Pacific Ocean in southern Oregon. Man, I sure don't miss Mendocino Co. on days like this! Must be 200 degrees down there - LOL.

This is the hottest I remember this early in May. But your memory is better than mine, Ernie.

Ernie Branscomb said...

I wouldn't say my memory is that good, but I remember remarking many times about snow storms in may.

What a switch!

Hey Ern, do you remember the time in December '64 that we watched a tree go up through the Briceland bridge, from the bottom. I don't know what the temp. was, but it was raining cats and dogs.

Ernie Branscomb said...

Yeah, that was back when it rained a lot. Only nobody would know what you are talking about now, they call that the bridge to the airport now.

Dang!! I remember in '55 having to climb a ladder on the Toby side to get up on the Briceland bridge.

Were you with me when we drove out toward Kimtu through the edge of the flood water, and when the water went down there was no road there. That still makes me shudder. I'll never do that again!

J don't remember going to Kimtu but I remember you and me driving all over the place looking at all the excitment. We were at the Benbow Dam and could hear all the big trees snapping and falling in the high wind and hard rain but we couldn't see them fall so we figured it was a good time to move on.

I remember going down Benbow road, when it was a road, and getting out above the lake, at right about where that photo at the top of my blog was taken. There was a huge redwood tree that fell into the river and it hit flat on the water. The water sprayed out, and at just about the "WOW!" moment, the sound hit and it was just like a sharp crack of thunder. I damn near jumped out of my skin.

It was 105.8 at the top of Bear Butte on Thursday. It continued to drop about 2 degrees per day until today. Crazy spring this year - I had a terrible time with my cool weather crop. But the chilies look damn happy, so I guess there is still plenty of heat in my future.
