An astoundingly dry summer Western Washington.
    #1796945 - 08/10/03 01:26 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

A lot of people think of rain when they think of Seattle or the Pacific Northwest. Well this summer has been the driest since 1967. These numbers speak for themselves...


May-
TOTAL PRECIP 0.70
NORMAL PRECIP 2.14

June-
TOTAL PRECIP 0.27
NORMAL PRECIP 1.80

July-
TOTAL PRECIP 0.01
NORMAL PRECIP 0.88

August-
TOTAL PRECIP 0.04
NORMAL PRECIP 1.14

Not only has it been extremely dry, but temps have been 2 degrees warmer than normal for the entire summer. 2 degrees may not seem like a lot, but it weather terms, it's gigantic. The whole eco-system feels the effects, from plants to dry mycelium.

How this will affect the coming mushroom season is yet to be seen. From what I have read, mycelium needs the right conditions to grow, this isn't looking good.

ps. last summer was extremely dry too.

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

The weather in my area this summer has been astoundingly strange as well. In my case, though, we have had much more rain than usual.

This is the first summer I can remember when nobody's lawn has dried up and turned brown. Nobody's! By August, the only people who usually still have to mow their lawns are the rich people who have sprinklers and pay someone to do it for them.

We also had some extremely bad flooding at one point. It was the worst flooding anyone could remember for many years. I don't have any numbers or statistics or anything, but I do know the weather has been off.

Besides the unusual amount of rain, there is something else I've noticed that makes this summer unique. My mom has a bunch of bird boxes on her property that have been occupied by wrens for as long as I can remember.

This summer, though, there are NO wrens. Not a single one.

It's kinda scary. Like maybe Planet X is heading our way or something. Or maybe the climate is just getting fucked up because of all the pollution we are pumping into the air.

Whichever it is, something is certainly strange this summer.

Namaste.
