These are in northern Russia, but they form elsewhere under the proper conditions. Mother Nature is just full of interesting phenomena, isn’t she?
The large number of ships and planes which have gone missing in the Bermuda Triangle has puzzled us for many years. Could the peculiar hexagonal-shaped clouds meteorologists have found over that dicey patch of water actually produce “air bombs” capable of causing disasters? Assuming they are caused by micro-bursts, but are larger than what we normally take that term to mean, they certainly could produce sufficient disturbances in the air or on the water to explain this enduring myster.
Hurricane Matthew is menacing Florida and the Carolinas, having dumped tremendous rain amounts on Haiti. I wish no one anywhere ill fortune from this nasty storm, but I suspect most people in the very dry southeast wouldn’t mind if we picked up a few inches of rain from Matthew. Late-season vegetables are suffering, despite the moderately cooler temperatures, my cherry trees are wilted, even my tough fox grapes are unhappy.
By the way, despite all the global warming/climate change/global weirding enthusiasts, it has been 4,000 days since a major hurricane hit the U.S.
Tropical storm Hermine dumped so much water in Bradenton , Florida that alligators were swimming down streets. Florida has borne the brunt of the on-again, off-again hurricane, with one reported dead, and hundreds of thousands without power.
South Carolina had a mere 21,000 residents without electricity in Hermine’s wake, and probably counts itself lucky. Virginia was under the gun last night, with the Navy heading out to sea and coastal residents bracing.
If Hermine strengthens into a hurricane again. residents of the East Coast can expect an unpleasant Labor Day. I am amazed that it took three whole days for the climate hysterics to blame global warming/climate change for the storm, despite Florida not having been hit by a hurricane for eleven years.
…Colorado looks like an April snow storm, dumping nearly two feet of snow in many areas of the state. I suppose the eco Nazis will call this global weirding in keeping with their desire to term any extreme or odd weather the result of climate change.
One normally thinks of one of the hottest places on Earth as a dead zone, essentially devoid of life, but last fall’s ample rains have turned Death Valley’s normal austerity into a riot of colorful blooming plants.
