A thread about weather
1 Name: Anonymous : 2018-05-01 00:15
what's your favorite weather and why?
I know this is pretty basic taste, but I can really get down with some rainy weather. In my opinion, the harder it falls the better. The only problem I have with rain/thunderstorms is that it might take out the power, which sometimes spoils the fun. But there's still other things to do like playing music or reading, if there's enough light.
Conversely, the worst weather I can think of is the the bright fucking sun right after a rainstorm. that disgusting muggy atmosphere just makes me want to vomit. that weather can fuck right off.

I do like to sit under cover while it is raining and just listen to the rain hit the roof, and I do like it when the clouds clear up a bit and the sun peeks through. The wet surfaces get this really deep shine, like they're freshly polished and clean. Being out while it is snowing or raining isn't my thing tho, I don't like having to clean water from my glasses.
My favourite weather is a really cold snowy winter at -10C or below, with clear blue skies. I can wrap myself up in a scarf, put on some gloves and boots, and listen to the snow creaking as I walk around. I like how the cold air kinda bites as it enters my nose, and seeing this frosty mist floating down the river. I think winter is my favourite time of year, just wish it was quieter around christmas (not as commercial).

Rain is good. >>3
has excellent taste, the clear and bright days in autumn and winter are my favourite. There's a certain crispness to the air.
Being on the coast, we get this sort of driving drizzle on occasion when the autumn storms roll in. It's one of the most refreshing conditions to be out in! Great for a run, but a pain if you have to be out working in it, the droplets are so fine even with waterproofs fully battened down you'll still get soaked through.
The summer heat is slowly starting to appear here. It's not something I'd want all the time, but I love the range of smells that it brings as things begin to flower and herbs become aromatic.

I can live without the heat, but the smell of summer is really nice. All kinds of food, flowers, berries and fruit (the strawberries we grow here have this really sweet smell). The smell of the ocean, fresh water, and pine trees are also great.
I like how quiet it gets when it rains too. Everyone seeks shelter, and the outside world becomes so peaceful.

I absolutely love chilly, rainy/stormy weather. Even overcast is fine. Actually I really hate the sun or any weather above ~20c, though warmer is more acceptable when it's rainy. Whenever the weather is sunny, it seriously ruins my mood and all I want to do is stay inside with my curtains closed.
7 Name: Anonymous : 2018-05-02 23:13
I feel similar. I've gotten blackout curtains for my room for when it's sunny out, I'd recommend them if you don't have them already. It's also super nice to take walks when it's raining as long as you have an umbrella, I'd recommend that too.

Rain. Storms preferably. I love to go for a walk in a huge storm. It's so relaxing.
11 Name: Anonymous : 2018-05-05 01:24
Absolutely agreed. If it's a real humdinger of a storm and the terrain is safe enough, I love running in them. Few things make me feel so alive.

I really enjoy an sunny day with the ground blanketed with snow. It is very bright and pretty.

My absolutely favorite type of weather pattern is a very bright and sunny day where you can see very dark and stormy clouds in the distance. The contrast to me is absolutely stunning and the darker the clouds the more I love it. It's not so much the rain though but rather the anticipation of knowing what's coming and all you can do is wait.

The nicest thing about summer are all the cumulonimbuses you can see in the distance. It's great seeing one of the huge towers slowly approach.

there are cottonwood seeds flying around and laying in the grass everywhere. it's beautiful, though i see tons of people with allergic reaction in the season

I love the fact that it is almost summer and everything is finally coming to life, but I hate the heat. I guess I am just the type to enjoy lazy summer nights with cool breezes.
19 Name: Anonymous : 2018-05-11 02:54
I too hate the heat, but I had so much fun last summer that I can't wait for this summer to arrive.
I'll be working a few days a week and drinking beer in the back yard on my days off.>>17
I've been sneezing a lot lately. It's that time of year.

Losing power sounds dangerous. Why don't you invest in UPS systems and hand-cranked power systems?
21 Name: Anonymous : 2018-05-11 16:58
Briefly losing power isn't dangerous unless you're medically dependent on machinery.
For real emergency stuff, hand cranks aren't effective - USB battery banks, solar panels, or a genset are a lot more useful.

Handcranks are for handhelds like non-smart phones. Always useful to have a phone in an emergency. And what I meant by dangerous is that surges and brownouts could damage sensitive electronics and wiring. But yeah, battery banks and solar panels - even a generator set are good things to have in an extended emergency.

We had one of the most intense thunderstorms I've seen here last night. For an hour, the sound of rolling thunder was non-stop!
24 Name: Anonymous : 2018-05-27 23:37
I love thunderstorms, but they scare the heck out of my cat.
We had a small one the other night and I walked down to the convenience store afterwards. It wasn't cold and everything was just wet enough to have that "fresh rain" smell.

There's a thunderstorm going on right now where I am! I also like storms, but I hate biking in the rain.

Are there any interactive maps for Northern Lights?
29 Name: Anonymous : 2018-06-04 20:50
There is! https://earth.nullschool.net/
Click "earth" and set the mode to "space". You should see the aurora near the poles. Unlike the lightning maps this is based on estimations and not detection, though.
It also has some other cool modes although I don't understand some of them. For example, when you are in wind mode but set the height to 10 hPa (what's hPa?) why does the Antarctica turn into a giant hurricane?
30 Name: Anonymous : 2018-06-05 15:18
(hPa) is Hectopascals. It's a unit of atmospheric pressure. So I guess you're altering the atmosphere in the simulation to provide lots of fuel for a giant hurricane...
31 Name: Anonymous : 2018-06-05 15:23
The hectopascal is the proper SI unit for pressure, used in aviation/meteorology as it's conveniently 1:1 to the more common millibar.
The 10hPa defines an altitude in the mid-stratosphere, well above normal weather patterns (though it significantly affects them). Specifically, you're looking at the "polar vortex", a stable pattern of winds at both poles: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polar_vortex

Pretty fascinating stuff, makes me want to study meteorology a little.
