Horrendous storms have been causing havoc up in my state as well. I beginning to wonder if a reinforced concrete home high in the mountains might not be the way to go in the future?

Yes, the river lowlands are flooding in Australia.....but at other times the mountain forests are also burning.

If you move to a concrete home in the mountains make sure that it can survive a forest fire.

What if they severely rationed gasoline, or interfered with our driving habits in other ways? I have a particularly expensive motorcycle that I was mothballing to sell off in the future, a real keeper bike that's in demand.


Is it a Ducati? I don't ride motorcycles, but if I had to take a last ride, it would be on something like that.

News from Vermont news media;
Through the first 12 days of February, the snow depth at Burlington, VT has been 0" or a trace. During the snow depth period of record (1895-present) this is the 1st time there hasn't been measurable snow on the ground during any of the the first twelve days of February.

Yes. I remember all the boffins being confused for a decade as to why the global temps weren't increasing, then someone looked at the ocean temps, that's where it was all going. From memory it was hard to pick up on because the top few hundred meters of the ocean mixed rapidly so the warmer water was being drawn down.

Of course the specific heat capacity of water is massive compared to the air so it was able to soak up mountains of heat. Then it reached a sort of limit for rapid absorption and thereafter heat was released periodically, leading to the super hurricanes and over the top rain events. Basically huge amounts of water was evaporating from the oceans and taking the latent heat of evaporation with it. That's why steam is so super hot, heat being just a measure of the motion of particles.

So now it's really heating up down there. I expect a lot of big rain events in the years to come and massive flooding. Serious cyclones too no doubt but for some reason they have not occurred much over the past few years, especially here? Very complex the weather systems of the Earth, many drivers, not just heat. I wonder what's happening with that warm current up off England, it was slated to slow down and cause havoc to their weather.
