District tournament soccer game tonight and I wore two jackets. And was still cold. Our high was 48. In mid May. Absurdity.

Fresh pow in Colorado. Snowbird has a healthy base still. Cool temps in Nashville. This is a great spring.

I have this feeling we're going to continue this below normal pattern, and then a switch will flip and bam, we'll go directly to summer and 90 degree temps. But, we'll see what happens.

It's almost mid-May.

That’s a major headache. The state of our infrastructure is scary. For 13 years I had my business in East Nashville, living in west Nashville we had a contingency/action plan for if wolf creek dam failed. With the Cumberland River splitting the city, failure could have potentially kept me on one side or the other for weeks. We’ve since moved our business closer. I feel for everyone who has to deal with this for the foreseeable future.

California and the West are not looking good.

The Sierra Nevada is down to 8% of its normal snowpack this time of year.

I am seeing some forecasts that show a heat ridge sitting on top of our heads this summer as well.   

La-Nina climo (yes I know lol) plus the strong SW Ridge does support a hot and dry summer, but hopefully like many things this year it will go astray.

Me personally I think the true misery this Summer is out West with the combo of drought and a steady SW Ridge, but the Monsoon could kick that crap over to our area during the 2nd half of the year.

I thought the same thing after work yesterday. I went to Mapco in Portland and every pump had people waiting. I was confused. It’s a shame people let fear overtake rational thought. There would be no gas shortage if people didn’t panic (aka just like the toilet paper fiasco from last year)

Several of our gas stations are sold out.  Reports of people filling up automobiles and gas cans too.  Several people were filling up plastic milk jugs.  Wonder how that is going to work for them?  ::wow::
