No F-F-F-F-Fair

Got up in the middle of the night. FREEZING. Had to turn on the heat. Damnation, it’s the 4th week in May. It’s not supposed to be 38 damn degrees out. 38 chilly and soggy degrees, as it has rained here nearly every single day for I don’t know how many days. 7? 12? 16? At least 9. And now the weather wienies say there could be SNOW this holiday weekend.

SNOW??? As we go into JUNE???? Where are we, Binghamton???

Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial kick off to the summer season ahead. Unfortunately for parts of the East, it won’t feel anything like summer. In fact, a few locales may refer to it as early spring or winter!

Northeast Wet, Chilly with Some Snow?

Low pressure is expected to wrap-up and crawl northward along the coast of New England late Friday into Sunday.

As a result, most residents from New Jersey, eastern Pennsylvania and eastern New York to Maine will see a wet start to the weekend on Saturday. The showers will continue over much of New England southward to near or just north of New York City right into Sunday.

But wait, there is a wrinkle in this forecast. There might be enough cold air that the higher elevations of Upstate New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and northwest Maine could actually see wet, possibly heavy snow!  Incredibly, over six inches of wet snow is possible above 3500 feet in Vermont and, possibly, the Adirondacks of Upstate New York.

Friday afternoon, sleet and graupel was observed in Binghamton, N.Y., the latest date of either sleet or snow on record, there, dating to 1951.

Toldja so. I used to live there, I know. Binghamton NY has the worst damn weather. A wintry mix of sleet and frozen slop falling out of the sky on the 24th of May. Winter refuses to let go there. The city is the pivot point for every weather system that comes across the northeast, so it gets a big extra dose of rain. It is not a high elevation mountain city and it is not a place impacted by lake effect. It’s just in the wrong place, and gets hammered all the time.

But “graupel”? Isn’t that the frozen cakes of pork stuff you fry up, made from leftover piggy bits? grin Oh. Scrapple. Right. Graupel. It’s the professional technical meteorological term for “ARRRGH!! Damn sloppy **** coming down, it’s ******** May already, GO AWAY!!!”

Ok, the place is getting a bit warmer now. Another glass of something to drink and it’s back to bed.

B-B-But It’s M-m-M-May

What the bleepity bleep? I got up at 5am to use the bathroom and it’s freezing in here. Holey horse blankets Batman. It’s 35 degrees. Yesterday afternoon it was sunny and glorious and dry, temps in the very low 80s. I had to turn the heat on.

Flip on the Weather Channel, and yup, some shift in the jet stream has caused a temperature invers ... blah blah blah. Prediction is for a couple days of cold, 50s in the day and nearly freezing each night, and then back to only a tad cooler than normal. I think this is the chilliest Spring in a long time around here.

On the other hand, today’s forecast for Billings Montana is 91.

I’m having a hot cuppa and getting back under the covers. No fair. Frost in the middle of May. Brr. Where’s that damn Global Warming when you need it?

fresh air day

Sure, Spring may have officially begun a week or so ago. But today was the first time in ages that it was really warm and sunny. Had the windows open all day, getting some fresh air in here. We’re getting a little warm spike in the weather here, and we’ll have temps in the mid to upper 70s for several days. Make hay while the sun shines! I celebrated by digging around in boxes in the garage. But with the door open and without a heavy jacket. It’s nice. I’ll take another 3 months of this please.

And now it’s time to get ready for Greed League. It’s going to be an oven in there tonight, so I’ve got to dig out my shorts. Shorts!! grin

What, is Al Gore back in DC?

Happy Headline of the Day:

D.C. snowstorm scrubs global-warming hearing

The snowquester has claimed yet another casualty: Wednesday’s House hearing on global warming.

The House Science, Space and Technology Committee announced early Wednesday that it’s postponing its environmental subcommittee’s scheduled 10 a.m. hearing on the state of the science behind climate change. As a reason, it cited “weather.”

Link to Politico

I think this calls for something red ...

weather or not

Big Old Snowstorm Whacks North East!


Emergency crews and residents struggled to clear roadways and sidewalks from a storm that rampaged through the Northeast, dumping up to 3 feet of snow and bringing howling winds that knocked out power to hundreds of thousands.

Municipal workers from New York to Boston labored through the night Saturday in snow-bound communities, where some motorists had to be rescued after spending hours stuck in wet, heavy snow. Meanwhile, utilities in some hard-hit New England states predicted that Friday’s storm could leave some customers in the dark at least until Monday.

“We’ve never seen anything like this,” said Suffolk County Executive Steven Bellone of Long Island, which got more than 2 1/2 feet of snow.

About 400,000 homes and businesses remained without power early Sunday, down from a total of about 650,000. Some school districts announced they’d be closed on Monday, complicating parents’ back to work schedules but giving kids another day for frolicking.

We missed out on the big weather adventure. Mostly. We had about 4” of snow here, and hardly a bit of wind. The parking lots and the roads are perfectly clear now, and the melting has already begun. Snow never lasts long here in NJ.

I feel bad for the folks who got hammered, and I hope everyone had adequate time to prepare. Sure, the weather wienies often get over-excited about things, but they’ve been right about the last few major major storms ... so when they give a storm a name and say it’s going to suck, maybe it’s time to listen.

I bought some extra gas for the car, 3 packs of meat, and made sure I had enough propane in the bbq grill. Not that any of that was needed. We never lost our power, and we were plowed out within an hour or two of the end of the storm. We live in the western part of the state, a good 50 miles inland, and major storms almost always come up the coast. So we miss the worst of them. Mostly.

Oh Shut Up Already. And Just Go Away

Report shows UN admitting solar activity may play significant role in global warming

The Earth has been getting warmer—but how much of that heat is due to greenhouse gas emissions and how much is due to natural causes?

A leaked report by a United Nations’ group dedicated to climate studies says that heat from the sun may play a larger role than previously thought.

“[Results] do suggest the possibility of a much larger impact of solar variations on the stratosphere than previously thought, and some studies have suggested that this may lead to significant regional impacts on climate,” reads a draft copy of a major, upcoming report from the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

Yeah. Significant. Good word. I’d guess ... oh, about 98.73%. No sun, no heat, and it’s back to planet ice cube. More sun, more heat. Duh.

This little bit of data was buried in Chapter 11 of the report. I wonder which chapter - maybe 38, or 74? - has the part that says Global Warming stopped 16 years ago, like the news in the UK the other week disclosed?

“The solar component is real but not of sufficient magnitude to have driven most of the warming of the late 20th century,” Pat Michaels, the former president of the American Association of State Climatologists, and current director of the Center for the Study of Science at the Cato Institute, told

The U.N. report also says that the effect of solar activity will be “much smaller than the warming expected from increases in [man-made] greenhouse gases.”

An estimate from NASA said that solar variations caused 25 percent of the 1.1 degree Fahrenheit warming that has been observed over the past century.

Wait, is this the same Muslim Outreach Group NASA that’s part of the Big Lie and is in it up to their eyebrows with all those other politically motivated “scientists”? And now they’re admitting to 25%? Which makes the reality at least 3 times as much? I’d say “liar liar pants on fire” but that would probably get me a Carbon Violation from the EPA.

Damn You Khan!!!

WTF? The weather people are naming snowstorms now? Getting a mite big for their britches, doncha think??

Khan Brings Ice and Snow to South, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest

Winter Storm Khan brought a swath of snow from the Midwest to the Mid-Atlantic on Friday. Parts of the South, including southern Kentucky, eastern Tennessee, northern South Carolina and North Carolina have seen significant icing from the storm.

While snow and ice will continue to impact the Friday afternoon and evening commute from the Mid-Atlantic to North Carolina, we expect the storm to move out to sea by later in the evening. Dangerous travel conditions will persist through the overnight into Saturday morning for areas that have seen accumulations of ice, sleet and snow.

We got just about half an inch here. Big deal. But there is not a breath of air moving, and it’s mighty cold out, maybe 10 or 12 degrees. So the light coat of snow makes everything sparkle like diamonds under the lights. It’s beautiful, but it’s so cold I don’t even want to stand by the window for more than a couple seconds. BRRR.

Well Blow Me Down

imageA frosty day in Peiper’s corner of the Shire! Winter is a’coming in here in NJ too. We had a helluva storm last night that defied the predictions. It was supposed to be just 1/2” or so of now across most of the state. But what we got was isolated pockets of intense snowfall and black ice in random spots across the middle of the state, with some rather heavy weather along the coasts. And NJ is actually a peninsula, almost like Florida, so we have quite a lot of coast. The storm blew in like madness wherever it touched down, stranding motorists, snarling traffic, and causing much annoyance. I didn’t see a flake myself, even though I drove down to the middle of the state to do some work right in the middle of it last night. We did get winds though. Nearly hurricane strength, which knocked out the power for several hours while the temps plummeted. And we have electric heat here, so things were a tad nippy this morning.

It’s “warmed up” to merely quite brisk now, about 18 or 19 °F, and the wind is ripping along at a steady 25mph with some ferocious gusts. The power is back on, and the all-in-one cable is back on, so after rebooting the modem and the wifi a couple times I’ve got internet again.

Bitter cold batters N.J. as temperatures hit lows not seen in years

We’re not alone in NJ with the wind and cold. A really large chunk of the nation is getting the big chill and the cold breeze ... must be a reaction to our CSOTUS’ blathering on about fighting climate change (that settled science) yesterday.

So here’s Fox News’ weather lady, the impressive Maria Molina, to give today’s forecast for the upper right quadrant: video link.

And if you find the weather just too boring, I’m not going to ask your opinion about furniture. I used to own a nice black leather Italian sectional sofa. It was great, with a nice big corner piece so you could seat a bunch of folks on it and at least halfway look at them while you talked. But what I really wanted was a conversation pit. You know, a sunken square, circle, or oval with a table in the middle, where everyone could sit around and talk and eat and drink and hang out. Kind of like the kitchen at any of my in-laws’, but with, you know, actual comfy seats instead of standing around while someone cooks.

I notice this conversation pit online over the weekend. Looks to me like there’s room for a crowd. A lot more than I can handle, but it sure looks cozy. And warm too.

global warming fraud. warming stopped 16 years ago says another report

The folks here, the ones who influence and make decisions anyway, are convinced and have convinced many, that by taking extreme measures this island might save the planet from from warming and all sorts of other bad stuff.  All they have to do is cram it all down the throats of everyone and hey. Presto, one large step advanced in the fight to save the planet.  Never dawns on these ppl that their puny input is meaningless and does nothing.  Whatever, they keep on with plan after plan and all in the face of other evidence which says something else. 

For instance.

Solar swindle: Cost of green subsidies will add £1 billion to family household bills

By Jason Groves

Ed Miliband’s controversial scheme to encourage homeowners to install solar panels and wind turbines is set to cost families an extra £1billion in higher bills, figures reveal.

Subsidies for solar panels rose 14-fold last year as individuals and businesses piled into the scheme, criticised as being a licence to print money.

The payments, funded by a levy on electricity bills, jumped from £9.2million in 2010/11 to £128.3million in 2011/12, according to figures compiled by energy regulator Ofgem.

Not much of a story here for Americans passing through here.  Things is, I thought it interesting how far these eco-hand wringers will go even in the face of

But over the same time the average efficiency of schemes fell by more than 40 per cent – because of a lack of sunshine.

Subsidies for domestic wind turbines trebled over the same period, rising from £2.3million to almost £7million.

Households are paid for the electricity they return to the National Grid but the payments are far above market rates, requiring heavy subsidies.

Oh dear.  What, What?  No sunshine here in the gween gweat bwitain?

Ah .... scuse me but I believe all that rain is what make the place so GWEEN?  Ya think there’s a connection?

Now then all that stuff aside, there is an agency here, The Met Office, which deals with the weather and change in and forecasting etc.
So very quietly, it was put out that oops, perhaps a mistake has been made in all this gorebal warming stuff. You betcha. Because ... another new headline reads;


A column by a fellow named David Rose has written an analysis on the subject, which really is interesting. At first I thought it might be dull and dry and of not much interest. Boy was I wrong.  For those interested in the the global fraud, please read this link.

More Global Warming

Snow Falls In Israel

Snow falls in Jerusalem

2 cm of snow accumulates in Gilo and Pisgat Ze’ev neighborhoods of Jerusalem; heavy snow falling in Golan, with flooding expected throughout country; police assist 70 people endangered by rising water levels on roadways.

Snow began falling in the elevated suburbs of Jerusalem on Wednesday, following a deluge of rain that shut down major arteries across Israel and turned highways into raging rivers on Tuesday.

As temperatures began falling in the capital, there was some accumulation of snow, including 2cm on the ground in both Gilo and Pisgat Ze’ev. This was sufficient for some enterprising Jerusalemites to build small snowmen and to sled on plastic bags.

Israel Storms Cause Floods as Jerusalem Braces for Snow

Israel’s heaviest rainstorms in more than two decades have caused flooding that closed roads and damaged property throughout the country, as Jerusalem residents brace for as much as 30 centimeters (1 foot) of snow.

Jerusalem closed its schools at noon today and the municipality advised drivers to stay off the roads unless absolutely necessary. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attended a meeting with Internal Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovich and police officials to assess disaster preparedness efforts.

“Emergency and rescue services are working around the clock to save lives,” Netanyahu said in a text message sent from his office in Jerusalem.

Ruh Roh

We had very heavy rain last night. I’m guessing 3 or 4 inches worth. It rained so hard that the sound of it woke me up, and we live in a downstairs unit.

I was just down town. The waters are getting awfully high.

If I had to choose a new name for Clinton, I’d call this place Confluence. Because Clinton is where 3 rivers come together: the Spruce Run, the South Branch of the Raritan, and the Beaver Brook. Granted, none of them are mighty rivers. And the Beaver Brook is a brook, though it’s one that is nearly as deep as it is wide. And right now they are all topping full. The South Branch carries all the water away from town. Right now it’s about 2 feet below flood stage. And the weather forecast is for more rain.

Ruh roh. I fear for all my pretty bridges downstream. Well, a little. They’ve dealt with this a million times before.


127 years old, the iron half-Phoenix Column Hamden Rd bridge crosses the South Branch a couple miles south of Clinton NJ

remarks by president on ct. and other mixed bag of subjects

Back, in a manner of speaking.
Nasty reaction to medication doc gave me.

Heard news of killings at Ct. school on the radio late last night. Shocker.  Just little kids. The killer had to be severely twisted mentally.  How could his late mom have not seen something wrong there?

I won’t dwell on that subject except for one other related thing.

I heard Obama’s remarks as they were also broadcast here.  He sounded quite emotional and there was a bit of dead airtime during his remark.
Very un-presidential I thought.  I’m willing to believe he was genuine as after all, he is a father no matter what else we believe about the guy.
But choking up and sounding as if he’d cry at any moment was toe curling and cringe-worthy.  Good grief. Like him or not he carries a title as head of state and is seen as a leader of the free world.  Well, a leader of some kind anyway.  You do not get all teary-eyed before going public.  You compose yourself and go on only when ready.  Or am I mistaken on that?

I liked Richard Nixon btw, and know during his last days in office some of his public remarks were emotional sounding.

Speaking of Nixon.  I heard an interesting program last night and it was based on the interviews he’d done with Frost.
It was sort of a re-cap of life and career.
From beginning to end it was genuine hatchet job which made me love and admire Nixon even more than I already did. But golly sports fans, he had flaws. Oh woo. None of the rest of us have those. Sure thing. We’re all perfect and especially the media.  Right. Always fair minded. Right?

They played a tape recording which was presented as proof of how racist and bigoted he was supposed to have been. Really. When you listen to it if open minded and even if not a fan, there was no racism there. Zip.  He said Latins weren’t very good at governing, he used Italy and Spain as examples, and then said look at France. Look at their problems and they are somewhat latin.  And yes, he mentioned Africa saying they were just not up to what it takes to govern and hold a country together.  Was he wrong?  He didn’t use the ‘N’ word either.  But somehow he was presented as racist and bigoted. He said African states were childlike and always demanding something. Gimme-gimme. Or words to that effect.
BBC program had a field day with that.

With regard to shooting in Ct. It won’t surprise any of you to know the liberal minded here are all over those ignorant uncivilized and barbaric Americans and their love affair with guns.

Meanwhile back at the home ranch:

Gunman robs elderly homeowners before kidnapping wife in their own car

Man broke into couple’s home and demanded money with a gun
Woman was forced into her own car and driven around for 15 minutes
Police have urged robber to give himself up

By Harriet Cooke

The terrifying ordeal came after a man turned up at a house in Lymington, Hampshire, yesterday morning, and used a gun to demand money from the couple who live there.

The man - in his 70s - received a minor head injury during a confrontation with the suspect.

As you can see, with the very strict control they have here, and btw should you want to know, it is against the law to have and carry a weapon of that sort.
Apparently this fellow didn’t quite understand the law. Or maybe,,,, he didn’t care?

If you’ve a mind to, surf to the Daily Mail and read the comments posted by many here re. Americans and guns. I won’t go there. I don’t need any more anger and angst in my life at the moment. 

On an all together different subject entirely.  Were you aware that as much as 80 percent of us, speaking of Americans, believe goreball warming is a serious threat to the USA? Must be true cos it’s in the papers.

80 per cent of Americans think global warming is serious problem for U.S.

A recent poll found 4 out of every 5 Americans said climate change will be a serious problem for the United States if nothing is done about it
That’s up from 73 per cent when the same question was asked in 2009
Even most people who say they don’t trust scientists on the environment say temperatures are rising

More than half of Americans say the U.S. government should do a great deal or quite a bit about the problem

By Associated Press Reporter

A growing majority of Americans think global warming is occurring, that it will become a serious problem and that the U.S. government should do something about it, a new Associated Press-GfK poll finds.

Even most people who say they don’t trust scientists on the environment say temperatures are rising.

The poll found 4 out of every 5 Americans said climate change will be a serious problem for the United States if nothing is done about it.

That’s up from 73 per cent when the same question was asked in 2009.

That also comes from the Sunday Mail. I just thought you might like to know what it is you are thinking.
Look for measures inspired by euro-pee-ons to influence thinking in the US.

Filtered News From Fox

What a load of crap. Read the whole article; nobody says the “U word” once, yet it was common knowledge, local news, and even all over the internet that these work crews that drove halfway across the country to help were shut out because they were not union employees. And it was reported that they were told this to their faces. That was just a couple weeks ago. Has the Collective Hivemind become so blunted that it can’t remember back a whole five weeks, and history can be rewritten so quickly?

I am very disappointed in Fox News, but this isn’t the first time. I think they’re down to just one employee who tells it straight - Sean Hannity - and he’s on his way to being marginalized as a kook just like Glen Beck was. The rest of the crew are either playing it stupid or have tilted far to the left. They are the MSM just like MSNBC. Biased rats.

FEMA teams told to ‘sightsee’ as Sandy victims suffered

Hurry up and wait.

That’s what first responders were left to do after being deployed by FEMA to assist in the storm-ravaged areas in the initial days after superstorm Sandy, has learned. A FEMA worker who spoke to described a chaotic scene at New Jersey’s Fort Dix, where emergency workers arrived as the storm bore down on the Atlantic Coast. The worker said officials at the staging area were unprepared and told the incoming responders there was nothing for them to do for nearly four days.

“They told us to hurry, hurry, hurry,” the worker, who works at the agency’s headquarters in Washington and volunteered to deploy for the storm recovery effort. “We rushed to Fort Dix, only to find out that our liaison didn’t even know we were coming.”

“The regional coordinator even said to us, ‘I don’t know why you were rushed here because we don’t need you,’” said the worker, who spoke out of frustration with the lack of planning and coordination following the devastating storm.

After arriving in New Jersey, the worker and others waited for three full days and parts of another, even as reports dominated the television of the devastation and suffering wrought by the storm, which struck land on Oct. 29. When they asked for assignments, they couldn’t believe the response, according to the worker.

I love The Fall

I meant to make this post 2 weeks ago when the leaves suddenly started to fall off the trees. Beats me why, it was still summer hot and muggy, and we haven’t been having too much lack of rain.

But today ... is fall. Thank you God.

It was just 58°F at dawn, and several hours later it has worked it’s way up to 63°F. The sun is brilliant in a clear blue sky. But what matters the most to me is that it is FINALLY dry outside.


New Jersey is a damned swamp from late April until September. Muggy muggy muggy until you want to grab the world and give it a firm twist like a washcloth and try to wring out the excess moisture.

And now all that’s gone, and in general it stays gone until the cold November rains come, heralding winter and generally making Thanksgiving a gray and chilling affair.

The weather wienies are reporting that it’s 70% relative humidity outside. That’s nice to hear, but fairly meaningless unless you remember your Earth Science from high school. Relative humidity means the amount of water vapor in the air (per unit volume) compared to how much water vapor that there could be in the air, for this temperature and pressure.

The thing is, as the temperature goes up, the air can hold more water. As the pressure increases, the atmosphere can hold more water as well. But it’s the ABSOLUTE numbers that allow you to compare apples to apples, and the absolute humidity is not often mentioned on the TV weather report.

Luckily, you can calculate your own, right here. Unless you know the current local air pressure, use a “standard atmosphere” which is 14.7psi or 101325 Pascals. Enter your numbers, select what you want converted to what, choose your settings, then click the red arrow.

And what does this neat little tool tell us? It tells us that the absolute humidity for my current conditions is 9.97gm of water per cubic meter of air. And that on a muggy NJ summer day, 85%RH at 92°F, the absolute humidity is 30.97 grams of water per cubic meter of air. More than 3 times as much. Heck, even 70%RH at 82°F is twice as much.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
