Re: Summertime is not fun when we have dangerous weather occurences

we had close to 100 degree weather today, it was HOT and humid......then the dark clouds rolled in for about an hour or so. we had torrential downpours (probably 2 inches of rain in a short period of time, maybe more?), we had tornado warnings, flash flood warnings, the electricity going and off numerous times, and lots of lightening! it was a crazy weather day today.

Re: Summertime is not fun when we have dangerous weather occurences

Thankfully, we have not had any flooding or anything of that nature, but the spring has not been pleasant at all.  It has rained and stormed constantly.  It started off really badly by being very cold and nasty and now that it is officially summer, it is still raining and storming.  I hate to complain, as it is still much better than cold, frigid temps, and snow, but we waited so long for spring and summer to get here and it is just very disappointing.  We have so far hardly gotten to enjoy much nice weather at all, or gotten to do much outside.  I am hoping that it will start improving --- soon!

Re: Summertime is not fun when we have dangerous weather occurences

Our local stations kept talking about a derecho, which also made me a bit nervous with yesterday's impending storm. The 2012 derecho left my area of southern WV without power for 3 of the hottest, most humid days we have seen in years. We borrowed a portable generator, which saved our fridge and freezer contents, but that experience is what prompted us to buy a generator large enough to power the heat and air system.

Huh???   Was there ever a time when Summer did NOT have storms, hurricanes, tornados and all manner of inclement weather ?

The original poster said these occurrences are now too frequent. 

 

She did not say they never happened before

You forgot extreme temperatures and heat, they can be life threatening as well!

 

Thunderstorms are quite common in the summer in the south, with high temps, as well as hurricanes from the Gulf!

 

I really don't enjoy summer anymore, too hot here to even go outside!

It is so humid here from all our T-storms that it's harder on me than hot weather.

 

Just going outside makes me light headed.
