Unusual Weather Event In USA
« on: July 01, 2012, 15:52:37 »

     A terrible thunderstorm and wind event raced across the Northeast part of the US on Friday night, downing trees, and leaving millions of people without power.  Hundreds of thousands are still without electricity in the nation's capitol, and the temperatures there will be near 100F today.  Until today I had never heard the term "derecho."

These past days are really unusually HOT for us here in Virginia!!!
We reached 105F last Friday and 103F yesterday with almost no wind.
I so pitied the clivias outside and was really worried.
I rearranged some of the clivias under the pine trees so that they won't get hit by the
roasting afternoon sun.
I brought the special ones indoors though.  LOL
Watering (no fertilizer) was done early morning and/or early evening when temps are in the 80Fs.
Surprisingly, the clivias seemed to be not bothered at all including the younger seedlings.
We are blessed for only one reason...to share.

That is really a very extreme weather situation. Thank you very much, Mike, for informing us!

I wish all our American friends good luck! May you, your family and your clivias withstand these extreme conditions!

Kind regards,
Elke

Mike you and the other USA members are in our thoughts. It seems the weather worldwide is in turmoil as less than a week ago a tornado swept through the Free State (Uncle Stef's hideout) and created some serious havoc and some deaths.

Thanks for sharing with us.

Kind regards

     Eddie,
     The weather in the US is certainly wild this year.  Sorry to hear that you have it over there, too.
Today in Salt Lake City it is smoky and 98F/37C, with light ash falling from the wildfires.

Mike i read the reports in the local newspapers today and it really shocked me to see the loss of life. It was reported that in one area (sorry can't remeber the name) two young kids passed away because they were playing in the sun at 41 deg C.

My real sympathy with everybody that suffered losses in this terrible ordeal and for those that have been spared stay safe. Words cannot always describe our feelings.

Thanks for sharing Mike. Really appreciated.

Kind regards
Eddie

     Hi Eddie,
     It's sunny and 36C with 37% humidity.  A little muggy for Utah.    We got a full day of rain two days ago, and it was a great relief.  The really nasty weather was in the eastern part of the country.  Has anyone heard from Maria?

It was just a short one though that left a lot of damage....hit and run!!!!
