Western Kansas is really dry and windy,,I guess you get more rain in the eastern end of the state

OM45GE - Posted - 07/18/2017:  12:08:03


We've had over 26 inches of rain so far this year.

DeanT - Posted - 07/18/2017:  16:01:53


This has been an exceptionally wet spring, and yes it's windy all the time. I like the wind in the fall when it blows all the leaves away

OM45GE - Posted - 07/20/2017:  13:06:59


Right now it's in the 80s With about 90% humidity. Not very comfortable out. 

DeanT - Posted - 07/20/2017:  14:17:30


103 here right now

chuckv97 - Posted - 07/20/2017:  16:26:04


95 in s.w. Idaho.

DeanT - Posted - 07/20/2017:  17:05:48


cool front supposed to come through on Sunday and bring some refreshing low 90's...

dmiller - Posted - 07/21/2017:  21:04:03


A few days ago we only got up to 55°f, but more often than not its been in the upper 70's/ low 80's and feeling like summer. 

DeanT - Posted - 07/22/2017:  02:21:07


104 yesterday, more of the same today...

OM45GE - Posted - 07/22/2017:  04:20:35


As my dad used to say, "We will weather the weather whatever the weather, whether we like the weather or not."

DeanT - Posted - 07/22/2017:  12:25:10


was your Dad a weather man?

OM45GE - Posted - 07/24/2017:  02:58:09


No, he was a lawyer, but he was a weather enthusiast. I got the bug from him. I have a weather station at home and like doing my own forecasts. 

DeanT - Posted - 07/24/2017:  10:15:58


And probably a more accurate forecast at that!

OM45GE - Posted - 07/24/2017:  13:42:19


LOL. Sometimes.

chuckv97 - Posted - 07/24/2017:  14:19:10


Predicting air currents is a tricky business, I suspect

DeanT - Posted - 07/24/2017:  16:27:30


I can predict high winds in Kansas and be 99% accurate

OM45GE - Posted - 07/24/2017:  18:32:22


New England is a tricky place to forecast the weather. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 07/24/2017:  20:35:09


Mountain area weather can be all over the place

OM45GE - Posted - 07/25/2017:  03:00:36


That's for sure. We've also got the ocean's effect. 

DeanT - Posted - 07/25/2017:  05:52:40


we have nothing to block the wind

OM45GE - Posted - 07/25/2017:  07:42:40


We don't either if the wind is off the ocean. If it's a snowstorm, it's what they call a Nor' Easter.

DeanT - Posted - 07/25/2017:  11:18:11


we have amber waves of grain!

OM45GE - Posted - 07/26/2017:  02:45:24


That would make a great line in a song!

chuckv97 - Posted - 07/26/2017:  07:38:01


It'll be a hit!

OM45GE - Posted - 07/26/2017:  08:01:56


As long as they don't throw in something about purple mountains.

DeanT - Posted - 07/26/2017:  10:16:19


Or brotherhood...

OM45GE - Posted - 07/26/2017:  13:08:36


We have the makings of a pretty good patriotic tune.

DeanT - Posted - 07/27/2017:  05:54:08


They forgot a verse about living in an oven, in the song...

OM45GE - Posted - 07/27/2017:  06:48:10


I don't recall any mention of mosquitoes either.

chuckv97 - Posted - 07/27/2017:  10:49:29


They could've included unemployment insurance

OM45GE - Posted - 07/27/2017:  11:07:17


Katherine Bates supposedly thought up the words to that poem on top of Pike's Peak and wrote them down when she got back to her hotel room. It was set to music later.

DeanT - Posted - 07/27/2017:  12:58:39


My band has been playing it all month

OM45GE - Posted - 07/27/2017:  13:35:18


It's a great song. Personally I would prefer it as our National Anthem to The Star Spangled Banner.

chuckv97 - Posted - 07/27/2017:  15:11:58


I like them both, except that the SSB was written while the British were destroying Washington during the War of 1812. Not the best memory. 


Edited by - chuckv97 on 07/27/2017 15:14:08

DeanT - Posted - 07/27/2017:  16:48:46


SSB is a b**** to play and sing. GBA is much easier, and works perfect on banjo.

OM45GE - Posted - 07/28/2017:  02:55:25


I bet the audience likes hearing it. Do they sing along?  Not many people know all the words. 

DeanT - Posted - 07/28/2017:  04:32:49


Everyone knows the first verse, no one knows the second verse

chuckv97 - Posted - 07/28/2017:  06:09:03


We used to sing "The Maple Leaf Forever", also a kind of secondary anthem, in elementary school. I can't remember the words but always liked the music.

OM45GE - Posted - 07/28/2017:  06:15:42


It's fun to watch Americans mumble along to Oh Canada at hockey games when Canadian teams are playing.

DeanT - Posted - 07/28/2017:  10:44:30


I don't know any words to Oh Canada, except the title...

chuckv97 - Posted - 07/28/2017:  10:52:02


It can be sung in English, French, or Inuktitut (Eskimo)


Edited by - chuckv97 on 07/28/2017 10:55:49

DeanT - Posted - 07/28/2017:  16:31:16


Eskimo looks like my Mom's shorthand...

OM45GE - Posted - 07/29/2017:  03:31:38


It looks like my English hen scratching. Sometimes I can't read my own writing.

DeanT - Posted - 07/29/2017:  03:45:31


you must be a doctor

chuckv97 - Posted - 07/29/2017:  06:38:56


I worked part-time at a drug store in my teens and the pharmacist was constantly phoning doctors to ask what they'd written on the prescriptions

DeanT - Posted - 07/29/2017:  15:17:12


I miss our small town drug store... complete with soda bar. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 07/31/2017:  21:01:33


I used to deliver prescription drugs on my bicycle. Couldn't do that nowadays.

OM45GE - Posted - 08/01/2017:  04:53:28


Can you imagine a kid on a bike with a basket filled with drugs?

DeanT - Posted - 08/01/2017:  05:44:36


Our ice cream man used to come by on a 3 wheel bike with a big ice cream cooler

OM45GE - Posted - 08/01/2017:  05:57:21


So he peddled the ice cream in two senses of the word.
