What's with all this rain

So glad I bought my yj that I can go topless in all this damn rain. June 10 is the 161st day of the year, and according to the National Weather Service it will be the 82nd day in Pittsburgh with precipitation. The rain will end three days of dry weather, one of the longest stretches without needing an umbrella this year

The longest period in Pittsburgh without any precipitation in 2019 has been six days that ended on March 22.

Its crazy here in KS too. Record rainfalls May and first half of June. My buddy up in Winter Park, CO still seeing snow at elevation as of last week. Talked to an ole boy yesterday at the gas station from Indiana basically telling similar tales.

I got it off Google and I think I'd rather have the rain than your heat there

Agreed. Live in NW Arkansas and I've been able to take the top off like 3 days in the 3 weeks I've owned it. Might sound like plenty - but statistically it's terrible when we only get one day of sunshine for every 4-5 days of clouds and rain. But on the other hand - trying not to complain. God's got a reason for every season, and a need for every climatic up & down. Counting blessings either way!

Down here, we say "it ain't the heat, it's the humidity." Lately, it's been the heat and the humidity.

All of the rain and cooler temps are global warming. Apparently, if they explain it enough, it will make sense that you can heat up that leftover burrito in the freezer, too.

I don’t buy it.

It's pretty complicated, let's talk it out. The globe is a little bigger than where you're standing.

…I guess that's it, actually.

Only the most backward fringe deniers haven't made the shift yet from "it's not a real thing" to "it's too late to do anything anyway". Catch up on your talking points.

(unsubbin and gettin' the heck out of this thread rather than see where it goes from here…)

I'm wondering what caused the climate change to cause the glaciers to grow to such a point that there was a land bridge between Asia and North America. That's how the Native Americans are supposed to have got here.
Then, I'm wondering about what caused the climate change that caused them to melt.
This happened three times with minor periods in between.

At one time Lake Champlain between New York and Vermont was much larger due to sea levels being so high, that the Richelieu River that connects it to the St. Lawerence River was so large that the locals claim that "Nessie" (the equivalent of the Loche Ness Monster) was able to swim from the ocean and take up residence in the lake.
The area that's now New York City would have been under water at that time.

Just say'n.
Google is your friend if you want to do any research instead of listening to Chicken Little.

Good Luck, L.M.

It says Maine (where I live) is warmer than normal...bs...it’s July 3 and spring hasn’t yet arrived. We’ve had an extremely cold winter. NOAA , so called ‘scientists’ and they get paid to say whatever those dolling out the money tells them to. Talk to those not applying for or need the grants...to live on. Also they say Miami is flooding. Another lie. I have a house in the Florida Keys on the water and the water level is the same it was 25 years ago. If it was flooding. You would see real estate prices tanking-they are going up thru the roof.

The longest period in Pittsburgh without any precipitation in 2019 has been six days that ended on March 22.

We're having nearly the same amount of precipitation here in Dallas. A friend of mine and his wife (both doctors) just sunk more than $100K into a brand new swimming pool that was completed the first week of May. Since then, I don't think they've gotten more than 2-3 weeks combined out of it due to all the rain. For some reason, he doesn't find any humor in my jokes about it! LOL

put the hard top and full doors on, and it will stop raining.

….or, pull the carpet out as well as the drain plugs, put a bikini top on, and just lean in a little when it rains

Speaking of it being wet until you pull the drain plugs and dry til you put them back in... Is there a better solution than the plastic plugs that are easier to get in and out? My floor is LineX and they don't fit quite the same.

I watched a documentary on a guy that has been studying one group of penguins for 20 years. Of course he is never going to conclude that they are black and white and eat fish, case closed. As long as there is government funding, he will keep discovering astounding complexities that need to be further studied.

Actual scientific temperature data has only been recorded for 100 years. In that 100 years, the scientists at NASA have concluded a 1 degree differentiation. Wow, run for the hills.

During the era of dinosaurs, the CO2 level was way higher than now, and they didn’t even drive V8s and didn’t have cats. Cats, get it?!
