    Weather trivia

    Post by oceanna on Mon Dec 12, 2011 12:51 pm

    The summer of 1995 was so hot that at the end of August, methane emitted within big bales of freshly-cut hay in Missouri began spontaneously combusting.

    Only two states have record highs no greater than 100 degrees. These are Alaska and Hawaii.

    Can lightning strike twice in the same place? Yes! The old adage of lightning never striking twice in the same place is totally false. Lightning is not limited to a one-bolt action. Many lightning flashes are of a multiple variety and may strike repeatedly in a few seconds. Up to 22 consecutive lightning strokes have been observed in a multiple flash.

    From the Old Farmer's Almanac - 2012

    If Dandelions bloom in April, there will be
    rain and hot weather in July.


    (A few Dandelions are in bloom here now,
    so it will be good to have some rain in July
    if the Almanac is correct.) Laughing

    My dandelions are fat and healthy. Tomorrow I will start digging them out.

    If the horses or dogs roll about in the fields or grass.....there will surely be a windy day to follow.

    Catchy drawer and sticky door,
    Coming rain will pour and pour.

    The winds of the daytime wrestle and fight,
    Longer and stronger than those of the night.
