La Nina weather is killing Texas

Recommended Posts

La Nina and El Nino weather derives from the temperatures of the pacific ocean. This year it's La Nina which means the southern USA will be warmer and drier, and the north will get wetter and colder. It has been full blown summer outside for a week now and all the wildlife is confused. I've got to go cut grass and might as well get a damn garden growing. Last I checked I was still alive and not taking a stroll though hell's inferno. Maybe that's why Texans are the way they are; it's because we're all dead and don't even realize were already in hell. Need to splash cold water on my face. Wake up, wake up; it's all a nightmare.

It's so scary for those people. Well, anyone that are living when it happens and you might be ready but at times it still can clean you out. I think they can happen anywhere but seem to be less common south of I-10, especially as you get closer to the Rio Grande Valley.

You can probably find a distribution map for tornadoes in Texas.

Missouri's biggest weather worries are tornadoes and floods. We deal with them every year. Although we haven't had any statewide floods like we did in 1993, and we haven't had any F5's since 2011 when that one hit Joplin, we still have to put up with that shit. I live on a street that ends in a cul-de-sac and I'm just glad that I live on the top of the hill.

Those are the natural weather problems. We also have to deal with robberies, and just random gun violence. Hearing gunshots around here is an almost daily occurrence. It gets old, but I'm ready.

I've been to Texas in the summer once and I don't ever forward to going back. Most people claim Jamaica is hot but I've nearly suffered a heatstroke just standing outside for 5 minutes in the sun. I have to be under an umbrella like Michael Jackson was.

It's happening; the change in temperature has major tornadoes all over Texas and the south. It's going to be a bad year no doubt.

I haven't been to Jamaica but I imagine there is an ocean breeze at least. Texas is a stale sauna with 100% humidity and 0 wind You will never die of thirst in Texas at least. Just drink the dew from grass every morning and evening lol

I went to a music festival several years ago, and the temperature was well over 100 (around 120 at night and 130+ during the day), and the humidity was over 100%. That's a deadly situation there. I actually missed the second half of the entire festival because I ended up in the hospital due to the heat. We went back, packed up our shit, and left to a hotel. And luckily enough, the car broke down which meant we had to spend an extra week in that hotel before we could go home. But as long as I was in the AC, and with their indoor pool I was safe. I didn't dare go outside until the car was fixed and we were on our way home.

The odd thing is that it was in a location you never would have expected such dangerous temperatures.

That must have been an El Niño year where the north is hotter and the south is cooler. Or plain global warming. Soon it will feel like Death Valley everywhere
