Anything odd with the weather lately?

I've heard so many times that 'global warming'/'climate change' is a hoax. Scientific edivence and theories can either disprove or uphold just about anything, so I find it difficult to take it seriously at times. I am noticing shifts in my local weather patterns though. As a gardener I see the trees, flowers and plant life coming out earlier than usual. Insects, ladybirds, butterflies and bees busying around before they would have done in the past.

Today is March 25th 2011 and I was sunbathing in the garden at lunch time with the butterflies! That is seriously strange. The past three days have been warm. The skies have been blue. Barely a day seems to go by where the sky isn't filled with chemtrails, but not the last three days. Is it really my imagination or are the days hotter when there aren't any chemtrails in the sky? Coincidence perhaps? I don't have the answers although I seem to have noticed that correlation on a reglar basis.

The past few years me and the guys here have all been saying in March/April how it feels like the summer. Every year I think that it must be a one off and then it happens again the next year. For the past few years I've heard from friends and family all over the world (India, Hawaii, Australia) all saying that the weather is acting odd, monsoons coming on too quickly/too dry/too wet etc.

Is the weather doing anything strange where you live? You might not have noticed anything but if it does come and share on this thread when you do.



Hi Trinity,
it's interesting because I thought the weather has been particularly cold this winter in the UK as you guys seem to have had lots of snow there. My personal feeling is that the climate has gone more extreme, we now seem to be experiencing a lot longer winter and summer seasons. Here in Haikou (in the most southern part of China) we've just had the coldest winter in three decades, it's has affected the food production here. Also many more people are now awakening in the UK especially around glastonbury and bristol ares, so it could simply be that they were experiencing a wave of hyper clarity and bliss and the weather is simply mirroring that. But definitely the weather has not been normal, we can certainly expect this kind of irregularity to more and more frequent.

Nice theory Lei :innocent: Made me smile...

Thanks for posting guys. Interesting how we are seeing changes in complete different areas of the world. Lesley reported odd monsoon weather patterns in India a couple of years back too.

I did read that Mexico lost a huge percentage of its crops in February due to unusual freezing weather.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the weather is being unaturally tampered with by a man-made weapon called HAARP. It is located in Alaska. It's also the cause of all the earth quakes and tsunamies. You can find the details on the web or look on Jesse Ventura's web site. Not to fear though, on the upside, with the activities of Openhand and many other wonderful spiritual organizations and seekers, these things will be soon nutralized!

here is something I found quite illuminating, quoting from Bill Mollison, the father of modern permaculture

"It is the character of forests to moderate everything. Forests
moderate excessive cold and heat, excessive run-off, excessive
pollution. As forests are removed, immoderate extremes ar-
rive. And of course, it is the forests that create soils. Forests
are one of very few soil-creating systems.

The effects of this on world climate are becoming apparent
both in the composition of the atmosphere and in the inability
of the atmosphere to buffer changes. In any month now, we will
break the world weather records in some way. In my home
town, we are very isolated and buffered by ocean and forest.
But we had in succession the windiest, the driest, and the wet-
test month in history, in two hundred years of recording. So
really what's happening in the world climate is not that it is
tending toward the greenhouse effect; it is not that it is tend-
ing toward the ice age; it is starting now to fluctuate so wildly
that it is totally unpredictable as to which heat barrier you will
crack. But when you crack it, you will crack it an an extreme
and you will crack it very suddenly. It will be a sudden change.
Until then, we will experience immense variability in climate.
That is what is happening.

We can just go cutting along, and in maybe twelve more
years we won't have any forests. "

Facinating. I have a lot of respect for the permaculture guys!
Thanks for sharing. Mother Earth certainly has a regulation system to handle whatever imbalance is apparent.

I can confirm your sightings Trinity.
Here in central Germany we have been noticing strange weather patterns and I find too, that on days with no chemtrails the weather is warmer and more friendly. Some days the sky is just a complete pale grey - not cloudy, just like a blue sky only grey. On those days the weather is strange, very often windy. I can remember windy days in spring and summer in my childhood - the clouds would race across the sky and there would be sunshine then it would get dull as clouds raced across the face of the sun...
This winter was freak. We had tons of snow in December, it piled meter high all around and the snow plows were doing overtime. January is usually our snow month, we rarely get snow in December. What was noticeable though, was that during these winter months we had hardly any sunny days. You know, crisp, cold and sunny. By the end of January we were all desperate for a spot of sunshine! We would get beautiful sunsets, surely a sign for good weather the next day, and yet next morning it would be grey, maybe even raining!
They say here that the planes have been flying during the night, especially when that has happened.

I imagine we can be prepared for unusual phenomena due to the pole shift, but I think someone somewhere is doing a hell of alot of manipulating...

Could it be that the potent solar energy is helping waking people up and that's why they're trying to use the chemtrials to block the sun's rays..?? this is a thought popped into my mind quite sometime ago... as the entire galaxy is now ascending there's more solar energy coming onto earth and that's surely part of the reason for the long term trend of global warming, but it also causes people to wake up as the human body is being forced to take in more energy from the sun.

The pole shift is an interesting topic, I did actually contemplate on it for quite a bit many months ago, it seemed to be something I was led to understand and it made me to post the 'ascension and earth changes' discussion here on Openhand
I've not read much on the pole shift since, but it seems that now increasingly more people are talking about it especially after the Japan earthquake. I wonder if Chris you have any new thoughts on this, could it be that the earth pole is going to completely shift albeit doing it gradually but at an increasing speed???

Also it's interesting that I had a very vivid earth quake and tsunami dream just about two months before the Japan quake, when the quake happened in Japan I immediately knew that's what the dream was about. I know many people have been having tsunami dreams, I love if people could share a bit about the natural disaster dreams they've had recently, maybe that could shed some more light on the climate situation. In my dream I saw very vividly buildings of several stories were completely flooded, I was also being presented with two scenes in a sequence, one was an extremely modern and tall skyscraper (actually looked distinctly Japanese), and the other was a huge explosion of water in the ocean shooting straight up into the sky just as tall as the skyscraper and I instinctively knew it was a giant earth quake in the ocean and felt very strongly nature's force to rebalance.

Hi Lei,

I'm writing this whilst in Dartmoor in South West England towards the end of a well needed break. It's poignant actually being here with the contemplation of a possible pole shift happening in this thread. I remember being with the Marines and spending many hours navigating in the cold and wet across the barren openness of Dartmoor. Even way back then, the pole shift was nothing new to us! You always had to make an adjustment to find True North from the Grid North offered by the map. That's because the pole is CONTINUALLY shifting year on year.

However, will the north and south poles exchange entirely? Personally I think there's a big difference between Hollywood films and reality. I wouldn't hold your breath waiting!

I really don't want to see the poles completely switch, it's reassuring to hear that. Sometimes it can be hard to distinguish between films and reality when this reality is getting increasingly surreal with bombardment of misinformation everyday.. :)

I feel the weather is off. We have had no snow or rain to speak of and it seems to be getting worse. I love the weather now up in the foothills in Co. lol
But yes it's seems to be changing, the other day we were at 80 and the next day it was snowing, just not enough to help out. Ok So the polar shift has interested me, I read where Chris,you said where it was a normal thing back then, but is it or was it normal for airports to have to close their runways till they fixed north again? and was it at 45 miles a year? I don't know myself so I am asking. ;-) because I too thought the weather might be related to the pole shift.

Hi Sue,

I am not sure if the current climate change has anything to do with the shifting poles. I am very open to learning otherwise and have no fixed conclusion. Right now I just can't feel that happening though. What makes you suggest it is moving 45 miles a year? Where do you get the information from?

I am open to all possibilities, although I do sense that the current climate change is more to do with the exploitation of humankind upon Mother Earth and/or naturally occurring shifts. Our modernised way of life is clearly unsustainable. We've taken and destroyed that which was never meant to be taken from the planet. This is bound to have repercussions. Add this to any naturally occurring shifts and then things might happen really quickly.

The other thing I keep hearing is that global warming is a hoax. I've not resonated with anything I've heard about it being a hoax. There is a lot of mis information out there.


In reply to by Trinity

Hi Sweety,
by the way your a beautiful woman with a beautiful spirit! I listened to one of your tapes and loved it, your voice is perfect for it!
anyway.... this one says 40 miles a year, everywhere it's between 40 and 45 I am not saying this is the reason, I was just curious since he has at least a little experiance maybe he would know if it was normal. I do have a feeling inside that it is all tied together somehow, but just watching and learning. The first one is the NOAA in Boulder Co.…

Thanks Lei fro the Permaculture Post. That is what I feel. There is definetly a climate change, but as Trinity mentioned that seems to have very different effects in different areas. What we seem to have happening is a "Global Weirding".

And there is a big difference between climate and weather (wich is local). According to my grandmum, summers and winters have been changing from warm to cold all her life... and it seems to be hotter there and colder somewhere else, so I do not know wether short-term obeservations are so reliable as indicators, plantary climate varied so much over time and the clycles are very long and have a big range.

I run a magazine in Germany and we tried to research wether or not the Global Warming and CO2-story s true. The result after two month of research was that we completely stopped to write anything about it, as none of us could see any way to prove either of the standpoints.

My personal conclusion was that there is a global change in climate and that this is for the most part a naturally occuring thing that just speeded up a bit through our intervention. That is my personal feeling.

I could not find the CO2 story convincing. In fact contrary to most people I belive it to be a very intelligent move for a mostly good sake. CO2 is the only substance that can be linked to almost all areas of our consumption - I can almost see the task force that was to come up with a single measure to explain people why they have to change their behaviour ;-) Even though I belive it to be a lie, I can see it having mostly positive effects.

The only bad it does is that it diverts people from what I personally belive the true reason for all the changes: Gaia ascending. Actually I belive our whole solar system to be part of that process and there are some indicators that other planets in our system are warming too. (As far as I remember we couldn't find direct proof of that, but only indirect hints like cloud changes, surface storms etc.)

What if people would find out that this is part of a natural cycle and earth will change, no matter what we do - and all life with it?
(I do not say that our behaviour here on earth has no effect, it definetely has. I just belive that is much more to the actual movement.)

I do not belive in any way that Haarp has anything to do with it.

In the last few days a state of emergency has been declared in Columbia due to flooding. They've witnessed twice the average amount of rainfall than usual for April.

This morning I learnt that Brazil has just been hit by deadly landslides and flooding.

Recently Thailand was by serious flooding after about ten times the normal amount of rainfall.

In the UK we are experiencing the hottest April on record - in places the ground is cracking under the heat.

October 3rd 2011 and the last few days have been very odd! Odd seems to the the new 'normal'.

It has been hotter in England than Athens, Los Angeles and Barcelona with the hottest ever October temperature being recorded at 29.9C.

After barely seeing a clear blue sky all summer long the auric energy of pure blue skies at the end of September (WITHOUT chemtrails for the first two days I might add) was like living in a dream world. I couldn't sleep last night because it was too hot.

Plants and animals are confused (not to mention people who were starting to wrap up for the autumn) - many plants think it is spring already. This must have an impact on many levels as we've seen in previous years. It is not without a note of irony that I observe a 2ft high self seeded avocado tree growing in my vegetable bed. This is the UK.

Well the temperature is due to be high again today in the South-West before it tumbles to more autuminal levels throughout the rest of the week.

Anyone else having extreme or unusual weather?

    Other climate news today: October 3rd 2011 "Scientists have discovered a hole five times the size of Germany in the ozone layer above the Arctic, allowing harmful ultraviolet radiation to hit northern Canada, Europe and Russia this spring.

    The 2 million square kilometre Arctic hole is similar to the hole over the Antarctic, researchers write in the journal Nature, released yesterday."

It's November 17th in Edinburgh and I'm still not using my coat, often no need of more than a jumper when I go outdoors, additionally I'm sleeping with the window open throughout the night. This unusually mild weather has been evident for weeks! It's hard to imagine that this time last year the "big snow" had already started, while this year we've not even had a proper night of frost yet!

And is it not strange that I continue to find blackberries so late in season and even find the occasional brambles with flower?


Very interesting Fiona... as far as I know, brambles aren't meant to be flowering this time of year although until the first frost comes I imagine that they're confused with the extra autuminal warmth. Let's see how this winter is...

But I have to say I'm really enjoying the comfortable weather right now :) This time last year I was in the tropics in the most southern part of China, it was like this temperature and it hadn't been that cold for ages. Now this winter I'm in the UK and it's like in tropical China last year, now this feels rather odd for me.

I am hearing very strange weather reports from Hawaii.

Hail up to 3inches in diameter have been experienced! Hail is rare in Hawaii, let alone that big!

Flash floods have currently designated two of the islands disaster areas. That isn't radically unusual... Lightning without thunder is though! And a rumble before the lightning is VERY odd. Something unnatural seems to be happening. Of course there may be an explanation for this - I know if the lightning is really far away the sound of thunder may not travel... Hawaii is way out there in the 'middle of nowhere'.

    Text from YouTube video above"I posted a weather video yesterday which I tagged below. I warned there may be heavy rains, lightning and thunder. We had heavy rains and now Saturday March 3rd at 11:30 P.M. we have lightning. This is where I am a little Bamboozled..if you watch this video you will notice that there is no thunder after the lightning. However...several times before the lightning strikes you can here this strange rumble...almost like a heart beat...specifically at 0:06, 0:20, 0:27, 0:32, 0:43 and 0:48. I filmed a total of 17 tricks or replays. It was strange to hear it live to say the least. Very interesting. Created on March 3, 2012 by David Bylsma

I have noticed very wierd clouds in the UK recently - especially last week. Also an immovable haze that lasted for days over Avalon. Very different to the mists of Avalon or anything I've seen before.

Please share if you are noticing anything unusual.

There is loads of stuff going on across the globe right now. Perhaps more activity than usual. I am reading about earthquakes and volcanic eruptions happening everywhere. Seems to be much more than normal. A few other things (but this is just a tiny snippet - the tip of the iceberg really)...

March 1, 2012 – AUSTRALIA - Regions of NSW, Australia have been hit with the heaviest rainfall seen in 80 years.

March 8, 2012 – MADAGASCAR - Tropical storm Irina killed 72 in Madagascar. At least 72 people were killed when the tropical storm Irina hit northern Madagascar in late February, causing floods and landslides, authorities said on Thursday. Three people were also reported missing and some 77,911 displaced, said the National Office for Disaster and Risk Management, BNGRC.

March 5, 2012 UK and Australia - Mystery fireballs in both hemispheres: Reports of a “bright light” and an “orange glow” were received by police across Scotland and the north of England around 9.40pm. The Met Office tweeted: “Hi All, for anyone seeing something in the night sky, we believe it was a meteorite.” source: Telegraph
A fiery meteor has lit up the sky over Victoria and Tasmania. The object, described as a glowing red fireball moving horizontally across the sky about 10.45pm (AEDT) on Sunday, was an unusual sight for this time of year, according to astronomer David Reneke. Observers say the meteor was visible for about 20 seconds. souce:

It is likely to be due to increased solar storm activity right now. We have just been hit by the largest flares for fifty years. Heres's what the scientists at Imperial College London say...

    “A solar eruption earlier this week launched a huge amount of material from the Sun's atmosphere into space. This eruption (a 'coronal mass ejection') hit the Earth today, as predicted.

    "At the moment, the Earth's magnetic field is trying to deflect the solar material around the Earth, and scientists in the UK and around the world are monitoring the situation to see if our magnetic shield will hold up.

    "There is a good chance that the protection it offers will break down in the next 24 hours, leading to a geomagnetic storm."

As I said in the It feels like something big is going to happen article on March 2nd, solar storm activity is being flagged up as something to take careful note from.

About two weeks ago, I asked the universe about the relevance of such activity to our collective journey ahead. I was 'told' we'd get a physical answer very soon, but that this would just be a 'warning shot across the bows'.

Increasingly, in my knowing, this is all about an acceleration of the unwinding process. The surface of the earth has now entered a new 'timeline' within our history. This I feel most strongly.

I'm 'told' that as we progressively move forwards, these 'warning shots' are going to increase in intensity until it consciously becomes clear to all that we are moving through end/beginning times.

Then, whether people truly acknowledge it or not, it will increasingly ready people for the monumental events about to shake the surface of the earth and humanity to its very core.

In scientific circles there is also talking about solar storms coming this year. The main concern is about the nuclear stations.

If the station suffers a short circuit or power going off, the problem is that the cooling system is operating on the electricity. So if turning the systems off is done in a controlled manner, no harm will be done. But if it is aggressive and cooling systems won't be able to work, we will have a Japanese accident replicating itself.

The magnetic turbulence will cause the electric and digital systems suffer instabilities or collapse. So the thing is that nobody listens and everything is running as if there are no problems whatsoever. Probably to prevent panic or just out of denial?

Anyway, I see all kinds of responses around. The majority is denying :D Very natural. Another big part saying, ok, if that happens, then it's cool. I am not going to do anything about it. So I die. And the rest, the minority, are preparing. Some are afraid, some are just doing what is necessary. And I barely know those who are actually excited or looking forward it.

I myself have ambivalent feelings :)

Something strange is definitely going on, sitting here now I can sense and feel it in the ether.
It feels like the phenomenons that are happening all over the world are just the tips of the iceburg, a confirmation that changing times are indeed dawning.
I question what to do about it, and my attention is drawn inside, an unravelling taking place. I feel uncertain, unsettled, a degree of fear, but through it a sense of inevitability and rightness, a knowing that whatever is taking place is really not to be feared but embraced. Whatever this journey has in store for us, I know the only way to walk it is with open arms (and hands of course :) )

With love

Yesterday I went up a local hill fort from where I can normally see the flat pasturelands and open sea for miles along the coast overlooking Bridgwater Bay in Somerset. It was just before sunset. To my surprise I couldn't see anything except thick white mists billowing in from the sea. From the horizon to a few fields away nothing but frothy whiteness. Above it was a small gap and then a horizontal band of mustard coloured haze which was covering a 360 degree panorama when viewed from the top of the hill fort.


Here is just one of the many odd weather stories that I have heard this week...

    Bizarre Irish weather for June has resulted in an ice storm in Donegal and pounding rain and flooding throughout the country.

    The ice storm left several inches of ice near the village of Termon in Donegal the Irish Independent reported.

    Local photojournalist Frank McGettigan stated he had never seen anything like it "No one around here has ever seen anything like this in June before. It was really odd."

    A Met Eireann forecaster Joan Blackburn expalined the phenomenon "All rain starts as a frozen product," she said. "A downdraft would push the hail down quicker than it can melt, and this is not unheard of. Also, it's not particularly mild, and because the shower is so intense, the hail doesn't have time to melt and fall as rain."

    Forecasters warned there is no let up in sight for the Irish with heavy rain and flooding predicted nationwide making last week’s heat wave a fond memory.The weekend will be unsettled, with some dry spells. "It has been wet -- and it's going to be wet," Ms Blackburn said.

    However she said conditions will improve "Dry weather will start to make its way up the country, but it will be windy and wet for a lot of places.

    "There is going to be strong and very gusty northwesterly winds, with gales of up to Force 9. The rainfall isn't quite as bad, but it will still be wet, and Ulster will be the
    the last to dry out."

    Police are warning of tough driving conditions. "Please be aware of all others on the road and travel a safe distance from cars in front of you," a spokesman said.

    "Conditions can be changeable from area to area, so always drive at a speed suitable to conditions, and remain conscious that flooding may occur and visibility may be reduced."

This is really interesting. A couple of months ago we had a mysterious haze here in the distance. It took a long time to clear. I particularly noticed as I wanted to shoot video of the local views. It wasn't normal. Very noticable during my morning walks up the Tor (big big hill in Glastonbury, that affords views as far as the horizon), when I could normally see for miles all the way to the sea.

    June 12, 2012 – CHINA

    Young and old residents of the Chinese metropolis of Wuhan were advised to stay indoors on Monday after a thick haze blanketed the city of nine million people, official media said. Described by residents as opaque with yellowish and greenish tinges, the fug descended suddenly in the morning, prompting people to rush to put on face masks, witnesses told AFP. The official Xinhua news agency quoted the environmental protection department of Hubei province saying in a statement: “Children, the elderly and people with heart or respiratory diseases are advised to stay indoors.” Xinhua said straw burning was the cause and denied there had been any industrial accidents in or near Wuhan, after Internet rumors suggested there had been an explosion at a chemical complex northeast of the city. “I looked out of the window of my office and I could not believe my eyes,” said resident Li Yunzhong. “At first I thought it was going to rain. In 31 years in Wuhan I have never known anything like it. We are very worried because we do not know what it is.” France’s consulate-general in the central city advised residents to stay at home, close their windows and limit the use of air-conditioning. “The source of the thick cloud that has covered the city of Wuhan since this morning is at present unknown,” it said on its website. “Local authorities have promised us the information as soon as possible.” Xinhua described the haze as grey-yellow in colour and said it was seen in seven cities in Hubei province, including Wuhan. Air pollution is increasingly acute in major Chinese cities and authorities are frequently accused of underestimating the severity of the problem in urban areas, especially in Beijing. Air-quality monitoring showed Wuhan’s PM10 particulate concentration stood at 0.574 mg per cubic metre at 2:00 pm, more than triple the daily average of 0.150 mg, Xinhua reported.


My sense is that it may be to do with solar storm activity. The Earth's magnetic field is currently decreasing and the poles are shifting. This reduces the barrier affect to solar storm activity which is increasing at this time.

In such circumstances, solar releases can cause noxious gases to be released into the atmosphere. This is what it may well have been about.

It's so weird. Here in Israel, everything is normal till now. Why is that?

I now get the funniness of this question. Like it is not normal that the weather is normal somewhere hhhh

Hawaii had it's turn in March. Ireland just had it. Now it is Dallas turn. Very strange indeed!

DALLAS, June 14 (UPI)

    Dallas residents set to work Thursday cleaning up and repairing damage from a sudden hailstorm forecasters called one of the city's worst in 10 years.

    Tennis ball-sized hailstones began to shower down with alarming speed around 6 p.m. Wednesday, smashing windows and skylights, tearing apart trees and denting cars -- although no injuries were reported -- The Dallas Morning News reported Thursday.

    "This will definitely be up there in the rankings of Dallas' worst hailstorms in the last 10 years," said Nick Hampshire of the National Weather Service.

    Greenskeepers got busy early Thursday repairing countless divots left in the Lakewood Country Club golf course. The Lakewood Theater's tower and marquee will remain dark for some time, the handmade neon tubes destroyed by the hail.

    Five lily pads on "Persian Pond" -- an installation by famed glass artist Dale Chihuly at the Dallas Arboreum -- were smashed by hailstones. Attendees of "Chihuly night" were forced to take cover when the storm hit.

    Body shops, glass repair shops and repair services have been inundated with damage claims, some even having to turn away customers. Insurance companies buckled under an unprecedented call volume.

There has been so much up with the weather lately that I hardly know where to begin. I don't think anyone can really ignore that something is going on...

Feel free to share your updates too.

All time heat records in Hungary not only today but several times in the past weeks... Daily average 38-40 degrees - not "quite" usual...

I love it though, can't have enough heat and sun :-)

We've seen no clouds or else than blue sky for over a month.

Tragic though is the very serious lack of rain: after the driest autumn and spring in decades, we basically had no rain again for many many weeks, which can be detrimental for agriculture, to say the least.

Just last night I was watching a documentary on HAARP's effect specifically on the wheather, and how different countries using HAARP technologies never communicate with each other (no surprise there).

Our area of West Virginia still has folks without power from the storm two weeks ago. People are not used to this, but I think the effect of the storm has been rather helpful for the most part. Neighbors helping each other, only being able to pay in cash due to no debit or credit card machines, a real healthy wake up call in our neck of the woods and almost all the way up the east coast of the US.

Hi tasha,

Hearing your feedback makes it all the more real and that's so important for us all. Thankyou.

We are one global family now. What happens to someone somewhere in the world happens to us all. We will all be influenced by the earth changes coming.

I found it so positive and uplifting to hear of people helping one another out in the difficulty. We must keep sharing, connecting, and together, helping each other realise our eternal spirit beyond the physical reality of this realm.

My heart reaches out to you.

Well it was predictable with the increasing temperatures that wild fires across the US would break out. It's something we can expect to increase as climate change accelerates...

    "Whipped by high winds, a wildfire in central Washington state has scorched 26,500 acres and destroyed at least 60 homes, officials said Tuesday. The fire raging near Cle Elum is one of several devastating Western states this week. Colorado paid the price earlier this summer. Now, new wildfires are burning through sagebrush, grass and beetle-killed lodgepole pines in California, Oregon, Nevada, Washington and Idaho. In all, 62 fires, including 16 new large fires, were burning as of Tuesday, the U.S. Forest Service reported. They have destroyed dozens of homes and are threatening many more. Washington’s Taylor Bridge Fire began as a brush fire Monday afternoon. By midnight, it had swallowed up 16,000 acres, and by Tuesday, 16,500 acres, or 41 square miles, were burning. Authorities have already evacuated people near the Taylor Bridge Fire and called for more evacuations Tuesday, according to the Kittitas County Fire & Rescue District 7. CNN affiliate KING reported 400 homes have been evacuated as winds shifted, blowing toward several pockets of homes and subdivisions. In Idaho, a blaze has killed a 20-year-old firefighter. Two other firefighters have been injured in Oregon and California. Anne Veseth died Sunday while fighting the Steep Canyon Fire near Orofino, said Phil Sammon of the Forest Service. He said the death was accidental but could not confirm how it happened. However, CNN affiliate KTVB said Veseth was killed by a falling tree. Residents of Veseth’s hometown, Moscow, remembered the young college student as someone who always gave back to community. “This is a stark reminder of how dangerous the business is that we are in,” Sammon said. “We are extremely saddened by this loss.” Residents evacuate as hundreds of fire fighters battle California wildfires. On Tuesday, the fire danger spiked with searing temperatures and single-digit humidity across Western states. In some places, winds were gusting up to 40 miles per hour." - CNN

Latest news from the Mississippi drought.
If this is not a warning to be heeded, a message that something has to change in society, then I don't know what is...

    The worst drought in more than 50 years is having a devastating impact on the Mississippi River. The Mississippi has become very thin and very narrow, and if it keeps on dropping there is a very real possibility that all river traffic could get shut down. And considering the fact that approximately 60 percent of our grain (NYSEARCA:JJG), 22 percent of our oil (NYSEARCA:USO) and natural gas (NYSEARCA:UNG), and and one-fifth of our coal travel down the Mississippi River, that would be absolutely crippling for our economy. It has been estimated that if all Mississippi River traffic was stopped that it would cost the U.S. economy 300 million dollars a day. So far most of the media coverage of this historic drought has focused on the impact that it is having on farmers and ranchers, but the health of the Mississippi River is also absolutely crucial to the economic success of this nation, and right now the Mississippi is in incredibly bad shape. In some areas the river is already 20 feet below normal and the water is expected to continue to drop. If we have another 12 months of weather ahead of us similar to what we have seen over the last 12 months then the mighty Mississippi is going to be a complete and total disaster zone by this time next year.

    Most Americans simply do not understand how vitally important the Mississippi River is to all of us. If the Mississippi River continues drying up to the point where commercial travel is no longer possible, it would be an absolutely devastating blow to the U.S. economy.

    Unfortunately, vast stretches of the Mississippi are already dangerously low. The following is an excerpt from a transcript of a CNN report that aired on August 14th….

    "You might think this is some kind of desert just outside of Memphis. It’s not. I’m actually standing on the exposed bottom of the Mississippi River. That’s how dramatic the drought impact is being felt here. Hard to believe, a year ago we were talking about record flooding. Now, they are worried about a new kind of record: a record low. The river was three miles wide here, it’s now down to three tenths of a mile. And that’s causing all kinds of problems. There are some benefits, I mean, take a look over here: new beach front. In fact, some quip that now the Mississippi River has more beaches than the entire state of Florida, which would be funny if it didn’t have an impact on trade.

    A lot of stuff we use goes up and down the Mississippi River. We are talking steel, coal, ore, grain. The problem is now a lot of those barges have had to lighten their loads, and even doing that, they are still running aground. There is a real fear that there could be a possibility of closing the Mississippi River. If that happens, well, all that product that used to be carried cheaply by barge is now going to be carried more expensively by truck or train. And guess who is going to pay for all of that."

I've read countless stories of 'strange unheard of rumblings in the skies' across the world in recent times. No body seems to know what it is.

Last night, here in Glastonbury, we heard the wierdest rumbling in the sky over a period of perhaps 10 minutes. Initially I thought it was thunder - then I realied it didn't sound like thunder at all. Never heard anything like it. It sounded very distant, almost like repeated distant explosions. It would pause and then go again, until, eventually it stopped.

There isn't really any clue to what it was.

This is an interesting documentary about chemtrails and the reasons why people try to control weather.

If i remember correctly, Chris wrote a while back that one of the reasons Lemuria was destroyed was because people tried to manipulate the weather.. I wonder if this is history repeating itself.
Watching the documentary, made me feel angry. I mean all these so that someone can have power and control over people and governments?? Dont we know that it wont have a good ending?
I dont understand how i can process this anger. The fact that i can do almost nothing about it is frustrating. Or even if i can it is not easy and it will take a lot of time. its not like we will tell them to stop spraying and they will. At the same time there are so many other problems, that you dont know from where to start. I guess what im saying is that even if people try to force governments to stop spraying, will it change anything? there are so many problems that even if you fix one it will not change anything.. and we cant change them all.
So what do i do? i just lay back, watch all these happening and wait for the end of the world?


Great and insightful documentary.
Pretty frightening to see the lengths at which we, and the planet are being manipulated and controlled. I don't find it easy to stomach at all, but also realize the benefit in feeling, sharing and expressing around the subject.
Thanks for posting Vaso.


Excerpt from interview taken from
This strongly supports my feelings that it's coming. Now is the time to rise up, not to stop this - because we can't - but to remember who we are!

    Wiser Now: Is there a hierarchy or sequence of geological events that will signal the start of an ELE?

    Alvin Conway: “The planet’s magnetic field strength declines, there is magnetic polarity deviation or migration, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions increase, there are changes in ocean temperature and salinity, and the climate basically unravels. This is underscored by an expansion of magma and rise in convection in the planet’s mantle. The earth’s crust experienced the most violence in the Pacific Ring of Fire from catastrophic rupturing when there was a magmatic expansion of the planet. As I wrote in The 7th Protocol, the first time the planet had a magmatic expansion, the fountains of the great deep were broken up and geysers of hot water destroyed the world by a flood. The rupture was very pronounced in the Pacific basin, which is why the underlying geology is so fractured, and why the region is now so seismically and volcanically active. Another massive fissure occurred along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, which almost cracked the crust of the planet in two. The first magmatic expansion released the fountains of water from the deep. The next expansion will unleash the magma from faults, cracks, and plumes already present in the crust. Volcanoes are erupting en masse, and will continue to do so to dissipate the build-up of thermal pressure in an attempt to prevent a catastrophe. If the planet’s heat cycle cannot be console by planetary geologic processes, the spectrum tilts toward an Extinction Level Event (ELE). Consequently, volcanoes also are our first telltale sign that something has gone awry with the planet. We’re witnessing evidence of another magmatic expansion across the planet with near simultaneous ground inflation occurring from magma intrusion at Yellowstone, Long Valley, Uturuncu in Bolivia, El Hierro in the Canary Islands, Santorini in Greece, Marsili in the Tyrrhenian Sea, Katla in Iceland, and the ground around Mt. Fuji in Japan. These are the early warning signs, along with increased seismicity along tectonic plate boundaries (especially in subduction zones), that something is amiss. No part of the planet will be left unscathed from these changes.”

    Wiser Now, October 2012 – Earthchanges coming, Ready or Not
    (The Wiser Now Interview: Alvin Conway)

I suspect that this is simply an echo of what is going on around the world in different shapes and forms, whether flooding or drought.

I know local gardens all seem to be saying the same thing across the globe. Our garden took a bashing, fungal and mold infections seems to be rampant!

I read this morning in on the BBC news:

    Food prices look set to rise after poor UK harvests due to recent wet weather.

    The National Farmers' Union (NFU) said wheat yields in England were down by almost 15% on the five-year average, with productivity down to 1980s levels.

    The British Retail Consortium said food prices were already being driven up after a rise in grain costs following the worst drought in 50 years in the US and a heatwave in Russia.

    Poor UK harvests also mean smaller fruit and vegetables than normal.

    This summer was the second wettest in the UK since records began, Met Office figures indicated. The only summer - defined as June, July and August - which was wetter since national records began was in 1912.

    A drought across much of England during the spring followed by record-breaking wet weather has meant a poor wheat harvest for many farmers, the NFU said.

    NFU figures suggested wheat yields were down by 14.1% - but some farmers in the wet western half of England were reporting even lower yields, it said.

    Meanwhile, the global price of wheat has risen by some 30% over the past 12 months, adding to fears over rises in food prices.

    Richard Dodd, of the British Retail Consortium, said: "Whilst retailers are certainly doing all they can to protect customers from the full impact of that, of course some of that inevitably will impact on shop prices."
    'Challenging time'

    The extreme weather has taken its toll on the amount of food produced and the quality of food and grain.

    Martyn Jones, from the Morrisons supermarket chain, said that, for example, carrots were not quite as sweet as previous years, and the available volumes of some food was down - about 25% across most potatoes and root crops.

    He said consumers would also see smaller fruit in the shops, and yields of fruit were also down.

    Ian Johnson, south-west England spokesman for the NFU, said it had been a "challenging time" for all farmers because grain is globally traded.

    He said it was not just consumers who were affected by increasing prices.

    "The consequence of poorer grain harvests isn't just in the price of bread but also in the cost of what farmers feed animals," so farmers do not want to see price hikes, he said.
    'Realistic returns'

    He said winter barley yields were up 1.6%; spring barley yields were down 7.4% and oilseed rape yields were up 5.9%, so it was a "mixed picture" but the wheat harvest was the most crucial.

    Mr Johnson said fruit and vegetable crops had also been affected, with potatoes and apples particularly badly affected.

    The adverse conditions cause blight, mildew and disease to get into crops, he said.

    Mr Johnson said that if a pattern of winter drought followed by unexpected huge amounts of rain continued then it would have to be addressed by changes in technology or farming techniques, such as planting in different ways or at different times.

    "Farmers will engage in this provided they will see realistic returns but if they don't then they are not going to," he said.

    But he said retailers also needed to have sufficient provision to cushion farmers during such times.

I've been hearing lots of trickles of odd weather around the world. Weird weather actually seems to be the norm!

Here's the latest from New South Wales:

    October 14, 2012 – AUSTRALIA - Snow has fallen across New South Wales and the ACT as a cold snap hits the region. The unseasonal weather saw residents in areas including the Blue Mountains and southern tablelands waking up to snow on Friday. There is also snow around Canberra, following the coldest October day there in more than 40 years. There was a maximum temperature of 8C in the Canberra area on Thursday, 11 degrees below the October average and the coldest since 1967. Overnight snow fell in the hills between Canberra and Bungendore and in areas around Goulburn and Crookwell to the north. The Bureau of Meteorology said many areas could see snow, frost and hail as the result of a low pressure system moving across NSW. “We’ve had quite a few reports of snow. We’re expecting snow down to 700m over many parts of the state,” said meteorologist Julie Evans. There has been 2.5cm of snow on the ground reported at Nerriga, in the southern tablelands. In the Blue Mountains, snow has been falling between Blackheath and Katoomba. Sussex Inlet on the south coast experienced a thunderstorm about 4am on Friday, with “extensive small hail” falling, Ms Evans said. “We do get this late season snow but it doesn’t happen very often,” she added. “The last time was in 2008 when we saw snow in the Snowy Mountains and central tablelands in November.” In some areas, the temperatures will struggle to reach double figures on Friday, with central western Orange seeing a high of 9C. On Saturday, temperatures will dip below zero with Walcha, in the state’s north, due to get a low of -4C. The low pressure was expected to affect Sydney in the form of heavy rain on Friday, along with a “”harp increase in wind,” Ms Evans said. Coastal areas will bear the brunt and surfing conditions were described by the meteorologist as dangerous. On Saturday there is likely to be extensive frost up and down the tablelands but temperatures are set to improve across the state as the weekend progresses. Ausgrid has warned residents in Sydney, the Central Coast and Hunter Valley to beware of power lines that may have fallen as a result of the bad weather. Ulladulla on the NSW south coast was hit by strong winds and rainfall. The town saw 225mm of rain fall in less than 24 hours and there were gusts of 47 knots on Friday morning, approaching 90km an hour. South of the town, heavy storms led to even higher falls, with 288mm at Burrill Lake in the same period. In Sydney, large swells caused the cancellation of ferries between Manly and Circular Quay. The Great Western Highway has been closed in both directions at Wentworth Falls due to heavy snow and black ice. The cold front had already swept through South Australia, causing unseasonal snow flurries around Adelaide and trapping a school group who were hiking in Victoria. In Queensland, there also have been reports of sleet hitting part of the state’s southeast. –Herald Sun

The lady says 'It's October for heavens sake, we should be swimming not building snowmen'...

I'd taken a break from the 'anything odd with the weather' thread here for a while. It just seems that there is 'odd' whether just about EVERYWHERE. Every day, I read reports from all around the world. Seems like it is becoming the new 'normal'.

After last years 'freak' hailstones, the size of tennis balls in Hawaii, my jaw dropped when I saw what they have just had in India. Hailstones the size of BOULDERS!!!

    February 1, 2013 INDIA

    Hailstones the size of boulders have rained down on villages in southern India. At least nine people were killed when the violent weather hit several villages in the state of Andhra Pradesh. The hailstorm which lasted for almost 20 minutes, destroyed crops, houses and live stock, causing devastating financial implications for residents. It was once-in-lifetime experience for people living in seven villages in Chevella, Moinabad and Shankarpally. The hailstones started falling from the sky on Tuesday night and covered the entire villages under the snow-like blanket. Some women were seen attempting to sweep up the massive boulders using flimsy brushes more suited to lighter debris. Dr K. Sitarama, director, Meteorological Centre Hyderabad, said: ‘The hailstorm was caused by an intense thunderstorm. ‘Such occurances are highly localized and restricted to a small area.’ The storm in the south was extremely rare as the deadliest hailstorms, and perhaps the largest hailstones, in the world occur on the Deccan Plateau of northern India and in Bangladesh.

I can't ever remember it being so cold here in the UK at this time of year. One day I have so many layers on to try and keep warm from the chilly weather; the next day we might easily be in a vest feeling as if the sun is beginning to burn our skin.

The weather is odd, the world over right now. Here's one such example in the USA...

    April 30, 2013 – MINNESOTA – April has been a freakishly cold month across much of the northern USA, bringing misery to millions of sun-starved and winter-weary residents from the Rockies to the Midwest. “The weather map … looks like something out of The Twilight Zone,” Minneapolis meteorologist Paul Douglas of WeatherNation TV wrote on his blog last week. Record cold and snow has been reported in dozens of cities, with the worst of the chill in the Rockies, upper Midwest and northern Plains. Several baseball games have been snowed out in both Denver and Minneapolis. Cities such as Rapid City, S.D.; Duluth, Minn.; and Boulder, Colo., have all endured their snowiest month ever recorded. (In all three locations, weather records go back more than 100 years.) In fact, more than 1,100 snowfall records and 3,400 cold records have been set across the nation so far in April, according to the National Climatic Data Center. Unfortunately for warm-weather lovers, after some mild temperatures the past few days, the chill is forecast to return as the calendar turns to May: Accumulating snow is forecast overnight Tuesday night and Wednesday in Denver and in Minneapolis-St.Paul by Wednesday night and Thursday, said AccuWeather meteorologist Mark Paquette. And across much of the central USA, temperatures will be from 25 to 45 degrees colder on Wednesday than they were Monday, according to AccuWeather. For instance, Denver should see a high of 35 degrees Wednesday, after a high near 80 on Monday. As for the cause of the ongoing cold? A stuck weather pattern that’s continued to funnel frigid air into the central USA from Canada for the past few months. Specifically, the troublemaker is what’s known as a “blocking” area of high pressure over Greenland, eastern Canada and the North Atlantic Ocean, which favors a cold northwest flow of air over the central and eastern USA, Paquette said. If you want warmth, he said, head west: Hot, dry, windy conditions will prevail this week in much of southern California and Arizona, where highs will top out in the 90s. Meanwhile, in Minnesota, the snow, rain and sleet that has dragged well into April means money lost for golf courses that have been unable to open. Territory Golf Club director Doug Stang in St. Cloud was asked last week if he’ll ever see anything like this spring again: “I don’t think so,” he said. “This is just too bizarre.” –US Today:

    "Jet Stream in chaos: Spring has gotten off to a colder- and snowier-than-average start in parts of the United States, particularly in the eastern Rockies and Upper Midwest. Duluth, Minn., for example, has seen 51 inches (130 centimeters) of snow this April. That’s not only the most snow the town has seen in any April — breaking the old mark of 31.6 inches (80 cm) — but the most snow the town has received in any month, ever, according to government records. As of Monday (April 22), a total of 995 snowfall records have also been broken so far this month, according to AccuWeather. Over the same time period last year, 195 snowfall records had been broken. More than 91 percent of the upper Midwest also has snow on the ground as of today (April 24), meteorologist Jason Samenow wrote at the Washington Post’s Capital Weather Gang blog. “Snow cover in the previous 10 years on this date hasn’t even come close to reaching this extent (ranging from 19 percent to much lower),” he wrote. So why has spring failed to take hold? Blame the jet stream. The record snow and below-average cold is due to a trough or dip in the jet stream, which has brought blasts of freezing air as far south as the Mexican border, said Jeff Weber, a scientist with the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colo. This dip in the jet stream has also brought moisture from the Pacific to the Eastern Rockies. Boulder, Colo., for example, saw 47 inches (119 cm) of snow in April, breaking the old record of 44 inches (112 cm). From the dip, the jet stream then swoops up to the north toward Minnesota, bringing new moisture with it from the Gulf of Mexico, Weber said. That has made for snowy conditions throughout the region. This persistent trough has largely stayed in place during much of April, due in part to a stubborn mass of warm air over Greenland and the North Atlantic, Weber said. A similar system was also responsible for the record cold seen in March throughout much of the Eastern United States. This mass of air has blocked the normal eastward progression of the jet stream, which normally brings warm air from the south and west into the central United States. Instead, this “buckled” jet stream has been stuck in place, bathing the Rockies and Upper Midwest in cold, and often moist, air, Weber said."
