Fall has come to Big D

Discussion in 'Irrigation' started by FIMCO-MEISTER, Oct 16, 2007.

  1. I don't know what the NWS says but I've decided to declare that Fall has officially started here. Heavy rain yesterday followed by cool temps and clear sky this morning. No more shorts. My jeans are a little tight so I guess I'm going to have to switch back to light beer and quit eating tortillas.
  2. Just stepped outside to go to work and that 4am clear sky is now dense fog. Texas weather for ya.

    We're "fallish" here also. Cool evenings, some rain lately and threat of fog. Spent the weekend up in Antioch at my son's and it was gorgeous too along the delta. However, I'd expect a little warming up period before we fully go into fall.

    Expecting our first "barn burner" of a storm tomorrow, 60mph should move
    the leaves around!
  7. YIIIIIII! Does it come from the Pacific or Canada?

    It comes rolling out of the Pacific, picks up moisture & heat...hits the coast
    between Portland ,Oregon & Aberdeen ,Washington...gets in the "valley"
    with the Cascade & Olympic mountains acting as a buffer & comes roaring up Puget Sound. Generally, trees don't fall too much since this storm system is the norm
    & the roots have figured it out. A few years ago, we had the storm reverse
    & came roaring down from the Strait of Juan de Fuca & British Columbia,
    took out mass timber. I walked outside & knew the fear that animals feel.
  9. You should be an adventure writer. i can feel the storm as you describe it. Almost sounds Hemingwayian. (Is that a word?)

    Thanks Peter..I consider it "western writing" my heroes are Edward Abbey
    and Ken Kesey. Have you read either? Do. "Sometimes a Great Notion"
    is quintessential northwest prose.
