Just curious.... How is you Summer to Fall transition going?Huh Here, we have dropped an average of 18 degrees daily temps in 30 days, 70 percent of my trees are shed and finally we are getting the needed rain we didn't see all Summer, but MOSTLY in massive flooding all around here.

I read an interesting article, it dealt with the sunspot activity: Now, I know (as every HAM RADIO OPERATOR - N2CIW) that the sun flare activity has an 11 year cycle of numbers of flares a day. For 5.5 years the radio spectrum improves on HIGH FRQUENCY BANDS (HF Bands) then it decends in a 5,5 year lull where communications on the are bands are very poor.

That part wasn't interesting, although it is a cool thing to realize that on certain years, you can hold long distand conversations with people around the globe even when the strength of their signal doesn't even move the meters or at super strong reception and at other times, you can't hear them at all for YEARS, literally, even with the best antennas and equipment.

What WAS interesting was that certain scientists have found that THESE 11 year cycles ALSO have a CYCLICAL pattern to them: every 280 years, solar flares PEAKS exceedingly high, causing the kind of catastaphic weather patterns around the globe we have been seeing.

In otherwords, there is a perios of about 40 years every 280 years that abnormally high solar activity reoccurs and causes massive world wide ditruction. It is the thought that we are now in year 4-10 of the bad cycle with 30 years of worsening weather ahead.

They have found such cyclical patterns in trees, ice drillings etc..

So Tsumamis, floods, earthquakes, mudslides, tornados, hurricanes and all other phenomomon have persiod in the world's long term time clock which they can occur more frequently and with greater distruction.

If these discoveries are true, we are in for a bumpy ride - most likely for the majority of our lives. I only mentions that because I think it is a good time to store up on long term food supplies, generators, water and a serious game plan for deal with mass evacuation - NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE.

I'm 100ft above sea level and 14 miles inland. A large enough tidal surge could take out ME and everything East of here. And geographically, I think every part of the coutry and world has their own worries, the Mid-West is Tornado Row, West Coast tidal and Earthquake and fire, etc..

But anyway, this time LAST OCTOBER most of the leaves were still intact, it was at least 15 degrees warmer and now I can only hope for a tolerable Winter because of fuel oil costs and the fact that I'm in and out of a truck checking boilers in 35 buildings every night no matter how nasty the weather is.

Just wondering if FALL is coming in hard and fast wherever YOU are?Huh?

Fall down here has been unusually hot.  It's been about 10-25 degrees farenheight above normal.  For August we were about 6" below the normal rain average but, that's been more than made up for in the past month and a half.  Actually, given the unusually warm weather I'm finding that plants, especially palmetto, are producing probably twice what they were last year.  There's been such a huge flow here that in two weeks my hive drew out a medium super from foundation and now it's all capped honey.  The heat has also sent my bees making beards 24/7.  It still often feels like summer outside.  The heat was so bad one day that in the shade, I place a large peice of burr comb for the bees to rob, I came back that night and it had gotten so hot that the wax had lost it's shape and basicly became a little puddle of mush.  That's about 100 degrees!  All this heat hasn't helped my inspections either.  Just last month, I got so hot in my beekeeping outfit that I was getting sever heat exaustion (cramps, tiredness, vomiting, sever headace, etc.)  Oh well, I've learned now to take brakes.  (Did I just ramble off subject?)

Yeah!  For us a good chunk of time or life span.  For mother earth, just the next tic after the toc.

Everyone said it couldn't be done. But he with a chuckle replied, "I won't be one to say it is so, until I give it a try."  So he buckled right in with a trace of a grin.  If he had a worry he hid it and he started to sing as he tackled that thing that couldn't be done, and he did it.  (unknown)

Yep, we just had a bout of cold weather, dropped down into the upper 50'sF the last couple of nights and only about 85F or so during the days. Now it is supposed to get back to normal 90'sF day temps. Whew, thought it was gonna stay cold, burrr.

Interesting.  But how do earthquakes relate to weather patterns or solar flares?  Lets not blow things out of proportion and continue to scare people like the media.
