Weird Weather

When I arrived at Redding airport several days ago, following my stint at work, I walked the quarter mile to my car with the temperature at 104 degrees. The next four days would set records for high temperatures in Redding. Normally, the daytime highs in Redding are in the low eighties in mid-May.

Today is expected to set another record, for the lowest daytime high for the date. Sheesh, the temp isn't even expected to break seventy degrees! Also, it's raining outside. I'm kind of glad I procrastinated on moving the wood for the wood stove off of the porch.

Meanwhile, hurricane activity for the Gulf of Mexico is expected to be above normal this summer. For we offshore helicopter pilots, it's a heck of a way to gain job security.

Sounds like a weekend to stay in and watch the Lord Of The Rings trilogy...

Strange how the image of the storm looks to me like a small dog shaking itself dry.
