Everyone knows that April is the heart of severe weather season and that being out in such weather can be severely foolish.

The SPC maps promise to be colorful this month….



National radar and Satellite as well…..





Just remember one thing before you head out the door...

    Hi Go-Kart! Looks pretty safe outside - fo now, but DOOM is always nigh.

    Crazy Canadian! Everybody knows you stay in your vehicle when Deer take the streets.

    Or it could be that he thought the Deer crossing sign was just a suggestion, like a railroad crossing sign.

    A sign doesn't have to be right there, it can be anywhere on the road.
    I learned that from a Tonawanda NY cop running a successful speed trap. The only sign can be miles back and if (as in my case) there was a UPS truck parked in front of it, ignorance of the law is no excuse.

    Too bad he didn't get the license number of the deer.

    Now he won't be able to sue.

    But Canadians aren't as bad about it as Americans.

    He probably just picked himself up and lit up a joint and asked his friend: "That deer came out of nowhere and knocked the **** out of me. Did you see it? I'm taking tomorrow off, eh?"

    Yes, every juan knows that song was based on pure factual history. The details give it away.
    I just hope it doesn't get to be a trend.

    First Grandma's, then Canandians, who knows who they'll target next?

    No real weather worries this morning, but Triple K may have to drive through some T-storms between Albuquerque and Amarillo if the SPC is correct.....




    Getting a bit chilly down in Antarctica - projected down to around -100F Brrrrr!

    Morning folks.

    My windowcast for today.

    It's currently 63 and mostly cloudy with a barely noticeable breeze from the north. The establishment pukes are giving us a 25% chance of rain this afternoon, but they are not taking ECF into the equation.

    ECF is always the wild card.

    Cone may be right. The parched land between Albuquerque and Amarillo may get a rare soaking.

    I have a bad feeling about that.

    I have total confidence in Dr. Kid. He will throw caution to the wind, disregard all STAY SAFE/BE SAFE protocols and successfully navigate I-40.

    Either that or he will meet his demise.

    It's only because Triple K is driving through there. As soon as he passes it'll dry out again.

    This morning's fill in breakfast bar - just can't make up for Aislinn's breakfasts....

    Hi all!

    Thanks, Cone! I will have lots of scrambled eggs and some bacon.

    A dreary day here with some nice fly-by soakers. Having another as we speak. High suppose to be 80, I think.

    Back to work. I feel like I have been buried in paperwork since October. Actually, I think I really have!

    Hi LF!

    Maybe this will come here and give us some rain....

    Just a friendly reminder that hurricane season is nearing... keep an eye out on the western tropical Atlantic for sub-tropical development

    You've heard of the Breaking Bad" series? Well, I am "MAKING Bad." That's right, I make bad weather. I don't do it on purpose, it just happens. (I am sure you have heard people say that **** happens, well if it weren't true, so many people wouldn't be saying it!) I used to think that it was because weather hated me, but now I think it likes me. Either way, it will turn out bad for yours truly, like a Latina wife. (Not all, just enough to make it true)
    This is also why SS/BS protocols don't really help me, at least not the normal Juans. Weather has its bases covered. It will rain hard anyway if my window is stuck halfway down or not. If I am in a trailer park, a tornado will form nearby. It may or may not hit the trailer park, but the fear and sleeplessness is all it wanted anyway. Weather is smart. If it made tornadoes to destroy all the trailers in trailer parks, then the Gummint would out law trailers, and then what fun would the weather have with its tornadoes. Oh yeah, I got its number!
    It's the same with flooding, if it flooded the flood prone areas all the time, people would never rebuild there. But weather lures the unwary into a sense of false security and just when they get comfortable WHAM!! it strikes again!
    It's the same with hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanoes, Nor'easters, Blizzards and heat waves. The weather is betting on every juan eventually becoming complacent and letting their guard down. It purposely fools the weather sensors and plays hell with the computer models. Man will never be able to accurately foretell the weather, it just has too many tricks up its sleeve.
    Me? I am always ready. I don't wear a tin foil hat (anymore) but I have developed a 6th or maybe even a 7th sense about the weather. So let me expose some of the false information you have been given:
    1. Don't go out in the rain.
    Why not? Yet you will get naked and get into a shower. Rain itself cannot hurt you. Don't worry about it. There is no need to have a safety protocol for rain. Now your clothes may be damaged or your hair-do, but if you care about those things, don't let it rain on them. Science has given us shields against rain. It isn't a safety issue.
    2. Don't play golf in a thunderstorm or you may get hit by lightning.
    This is like saying don't play with matches while refueling your car with gasoline. It's ok though if it is a Tesla or another electric car. The thing is, it's going to thunderstorm and lightning is likely to strike wherever it feels like striking. 90% of the time it will totally ignore a golf course. But because golfers are such whine pots, they have spread the tales of a golfer or 2 getting hit and scaring the beejezus out of the rest of them. No, lightning hits golfers on purpose. Statistics overwhelmingly point to it. In a small town in Illinois, one lightning bolt struck during a thunderstorm and hit only one golfer playing that day. No, I have figured out that whoever really controls the weather bets on golf or the thing our parents told us when we were little to make us behave was actually true, that the bad things we do will come back to us Juan day. Playing golf just pisses them off, and particularly when it is getting ready to thunderstorm. So if you dare to tempt fate, go ahead and play golf before, during or after a thunderstorm. It isn't a safety issue, it is payback. It WILL get you juan day, but playing golf in bad weather will just speed up the process.

    That's all I have time for now, my lightning/golf research was found here.

    Good Afternoon EveryJuan. It is 75 and a Tinkle Sprinkle here. It looks like a nice little shower just a couple of miles East of us.

    We have been working in the yard this morning, then a run to town to run errands.

    Tomorrow I will be at the Audubon center, ~150 8th graders will be there. I do not know what station I will be at, but it probably involve a snake, I do not mind that though, because over half of them will be way in the back.

    Good Morning EveryJuan. It is 57 and a slight hazy fog, or a slight foggy haze, whichever.

    Well off to teach nature to the students, I will be talking about the seasons, and they gave me good cheat notes.
