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.
16 Name: Anonymous : 2018-05-10 12:30
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
18 Name: Anonymous : 2018-05-11 00:03
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.

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.
22 Name: Anonymous : 2018-05-18 06:17
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.
25 Name: Anonymous : 2018-05-30 02:53
There's a thunderstorm going on right now where I am! I also like storms, but I hate biking in the rain.

28 Name: Anonymous : 2018-06-04 01:40
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.

The last couple of weeks have had really nice temperatures and winds. It's really, really hot, which would suck normally. But the wind is strong enough to make it only feel warm, and its not so strong that it's uncomfortable. I love the sound.

The hot temperature has been wonderful in the mornings and at night. I usually leave all my windows open when I sleep, since otherwise I'd sweat, and the fresh air from outside feels so much nicer. Unfortunately, this often leaves me waking up super uncomfortably and shivering. These last weeks, though, have felt like they were just below room temperature. Really nice and easy way to wake up.

Night time walks are incredible as well, with the wind and temperature. There are significantly more trees than houses, the rustling is very calming, and its warm enough I can go out in a t-shirt and feel the air. Hasn't been cloudy, either. The moonlight is beautiful.

Arizona had some unusually warm weather for their winters. Out here we usually have two seasons - summer and winter, but for like the whole month of January it didn't feel like winter at all. It's cooled down a little bit since then but we're already starting to heat up.
35 Name: Paperplane : 2020-02-27 06:41
Warm enough to only wear a t-shirt but not any hotter, no wind and no blinding sunlight. You usually get these conditions mid summer when the sun sets.
I have long hair so wind blows it in my face and I hate it. I also dislike the noise wind makes in your ears, it stresses me out after some time. I hate wearing sunglasses so blinding sunlight is annoying. I find T-Shirts the most comfortable.
36 Name: Anonymous : 2020-02-29 13:06
I personally like mild warm/cool weather such as low to mid 60s and those nights. Where it's cool enough to wear a light jacket. I find it very comfortable to wear long sleeve shirts or a light jacket. I don't know, I just like to be covered I guess.
37 Name: Anonymous : 2020-03-07 17:29
bright and sunny after a rainstorm is my favorite (lol) but it's always cool & windy here, so the mugginess isn't even noticeable. it's perfect walking weather

sometimes it rains/drizzles while the sun is out, even more so during the spring, and i think that's the most beautiful combo if that makes any sense. the green grass, the trees & gardens starting to blossom, the sky reflected in the puddles...sometimes it's the little things

I used to be frightened of thunderstorms when I was very young. Listening to it now from a basement, it almost feels like music.
40 Name: Anonymous : 2020-03-17 16:15
Spring weather is my favorite. After the rain season is over and everything is green, the fresh air, and the warm embrace of the sun. Especially those nights when its warm enough to sleep with a light blanket. God I love Spring.

Mellow sunny weather. Like a mid-winter afternoon. I used to live right next to the woods (my backyard was an entry to the woods), and I'd just hang out there for hours. I had a walkman and I used to just travel around the woods listening to smashing pumpkins
42 Name: Anonymous : 2020-03-30 01:24
One of my favorites is a cold winter day with an absolutely cloudless sky. Something about it is just so beautiful.
43 Name: Anonymous : 2020-04-24 03:38
I like overcast days where you can hear the wind blowing and rustling all the greenery like a little leaf symphony. It's perfect weather to take a walk. Though during one of my walks I got rained on (it's an overcast day, go figure,) but that sort of accidental weather makes me happier in a way.

I miss the days when I was living with my mom and step sister. We lived right next to woods and there were ginormous trees, blocking the sun, so it always looked like dusk in our backyard. Me and my step sis growing up were very poor, so we didnt have a lot to do. Her brother had a mega drive and snes at one point, but he moved out for college. So we would just play for hours and have adventures in the woods. I loved the earthy atmosphere. And when it rained we camped outside.

I used to be pretty frightened of thunder and lightning when I was little, but ever since I moved to a basement, I've slowly started to appreciate it.

Summer is my favorite time of year. It gets really hot where I live, but I just love being outside in the sun! I get sad once the solstice happens because it means the days are getting shorter again.
47 Name: Anonymous : 2020-06-30 13:06
It gets hot there too, very hot. I just don't feel good when it's this hot. Nausea, headache, tiredness. Plus my birthday is today, it doesn't help. I don't celebrate birthdays.
I love early spring and late autumn. These months are usually rainy, which makes them even better.
And winter. You feel like a live being when it's cold and harsh and windy and rainy. A warm ball of a human, wrapped in a something warm and comfortable. And then you go take a hot bath or shower. What a bliss. Contrast that to the sweat so sweaty, it becomes sticky.
48 Name: Anonymous : 2020-07-04 18:41
Even though it's summer it's been very cool these past few weeks. Kind of foggy and cloudy, 50s-60s. I don't mind because I don't really like how hot it can get during the summers.

Spring and autumn are my favorite seasons. Nice and cool. I agree completely.
49 Name: Anonymous : 2020-07-16 04:22

I would do anything to have weather that comfortable.
It's been in the high 80s and 90s for the past few weeks here. My poor air conditioner has about had it trying to keep the house cool. Probably going to fucking break on me and I'll end up dead from a heat stroke.
50 Name: Anonymous : 2020-07-16 07:18
Hope you can get a fan or make a swamp cooler or something. The latter worked for me very well last summer during a heat wave. It's a nuisance when it's hot for too long but it does the trick for a week or two as long as you don't mind keeping it in the same room with you.
51 Name: Anonymous : 2020-07-17 20:27
On the forecast they said that today was supposed to rain but in the end it just drizzled for a bit and there were some clouds, that's it.
I'm actually disappointed.
52 Name: Paperplane : 2020-07-18 10:46
Weather is really swingy here. It should be mid summer now but it's more like autumn here. Lots of rain, windy, and not very hot. Kinda wierd because last year around that time we had droughts and 40°C.
53 Name: Anonymous : 2020-07-18 15:16
Are you in the Netherlands perhaps?
Cause it's exactly like that over here.
We had a really long, dry and hot summer but now it's rather cool with rain and storms. Feels kinda nostalgic to be honest.

Hoeveel Nederlanders zijn er hier wel niet?
