I'm getting older, so I like to talk about the weather. Actually always have.
It's mid June, and I've not had the AC on even once here in South Central IN. Unheard of! Wonderful! Also, lots of rain. It's as green as green can be.

Everybody talks about the weather but nobody does anything about it.

Actually, your Spring sounds similar to our's in mid-Michigan; its been unusually wet and not oppressively hot or humid.

TSK, even I remember that Michigan actually only had two seasons althogh loved the short beautiful interval between summmer and winter.. However, Florida seems only to have one-very monotonous at times

I live in SE Michigan and I have only had to water flowers, lawn, veggies a couple of times. Lawn has never looked better, Clematis blossoms are huge and the marigolds and begonias look like they are on steroids. Very little AC has been needed and I sleep with the windows open. Global warming? What's that?

Same in Dallas/Fort Worth. We've had a very mild spring - by comparison to some I remember. I've only had the AC on twice, and that was just to cool the house a bit for sleeping comfortably. Except for the tornado I had to hide from and ride out, a really nice, plenty of rain, plush spring.

It finally rained here today after over a month, we're supposed to be the wet area. Please take your hot, dry weather back. Pretty please

We haven't had any rain but it's been unseasonably cloudy and cool - 13 straight days in June of not hitting 100 degrees F - one more day and we'll have a record 'cold' spell!

Last year we were in a drought so severe I mowed the swamp near our house with my riding mower. This year, almost every day by the time the dew dries off enough to mow the grass, a thunderstorm comes through. They kept interrupting TV shows tonight to give tornado warnings.

The grass gets too high to use my bagger attachment, so I'm back to raking by hand. I like rain, but can we schedule it for Mondays? Isn't there a song about that in some musical?

We have been having thunder storms and it rains so hard that you have to pull over and wait until it slows down a bit. Can't complain everything is green but the heavy rain knocked all the flowers off my Japanese snowbell tree. We have now had two days of 80 degree weather which is really nice.

I agree that it has been cooler than normal here in Michigan but I am seeing reports that global warming is speeding up.

Global warming is a serious subject, and should be treated as such. If anyone thinks that it means it will gradually get warmer everywhere i suggest they educate themselves on the topic. The demise of the Gulf Stream is just one example of how non cyclical warming could be devastsing to millions. The argument that "it is going to happen no matter how much we contribute to it" is akin to saying "i'm going to die anyway, i might as well not look when i'm crossing the road".

Like our unusually dry Spring, when we normally have fairly consistent rain, which could just be a cyclical thing, this Global warming is tricky. All the inconsistencies are adding up around the globe. As Cleavercloggs said get informed, its very scary but still fixable if we all work together.

Sounds like most of you should live in England - we get most types of weather each day!

M48ortal, are you thinking of "Camelot"? Where it never rains till after sundown?
I wasn't trying to dispel global warming--just saying we're having a cool rainy spring. I love it! Usually we go from blossoms to swelter overnight here.

MTv for old people!

Oh, gotta run, they are doing radar next.

I've had mine on for at least two months now - for a little cool in the office and bedroom and to purify the air, but it doesn't seem to cost much. It's the electric heater in the dining room/living room and the water heater that runs up the bill during our mild winters.

Here in the U.K. the weather forecasters have told us we are in for a "Barbecue Summer" - sadly it always seem to rain when I have one!

I wish they still ad "test patterns" as that is about all of the excitement I can take

Thanks for the laugh Pennwoman!! Although it is really only too true. Hope your radar looks better than mine, but I'll bet it's about the same!!!
