Hey BIRD threaders. I hope you all are enjoying the hot humid weather. I have so enjoyed the swimming in the last couple days. Still pretty cold, but this week ought to heat it up good.
Have to work this evening for a few hours, so I am off to get a bite to eat and get ready. I hope you all have your AC on. It feels so good coming in from the heat and humidity. Love it. I will leave you with a few good videos and the earthquake report. There is some crazy weather going on again, tornados, freak snow storms and Arkansas rocking a little.
Enjoy your day.
No AC here to turn on, just shade trees and fans.

My thoughts are on the community in Oklahoma, Moore residents. Bless the survivors and the remaining families of those who lost their lives. My condolences to All who have endured the wrath of nature.
Nice breeze tonight. The frogs are calling by the nearby creek. Pleasant night to all. I have two windows raised enjoying both the breeze and sounds;)

I can't take the humidity and I breathe better with the AC on. Unless the temp is down and a rain. I like it cool.

Besides you know we get all that chemspraying here. lol

No seriously they do. Tonight even on the way home I seen them criss crossing the sky by the moonlight and it isn't even full. Guess we will get some rain again. Just hope nothing else. They were showing hail in this area last night. Marble size people were posting. Glad it missed me.

How sad is all that devastation. I last heard 51 dead and hundreds injured. Numbers expected to go up. The thought of seeing that tornado heading your way is pretty scary. God Bless them all. You just never know. Take a look at it all west of us on this US map. I sure hope it fizzles out before it gets here.

Arkansas has settled down on the earthquakes but the west coast is blinking up a storm for them and on the world map you can see Russia is still getting it. All the little white boxes are earthquakes.

Made me think of Hempburn and Una posts:

200-Pound Bear Pulled From Colorado Springs Tree
Firefighters in Colorado are more used to pulling frightened cats down from high trees had a change of pace Sunday when a 200-pound bear was found in a tree high above Colorado Springs.

The female black bear made its way into the tree Sunday morning but was not discovered by local residents until around 3 p.m., according to wildlife officials.

The bear's ascent brought out both Colorado Springs' firefighters and officers from the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Department. Their first attempt to subdue the bear with a tranquilizer proved unsuccessful, pushing the bear to climb even higher up the tree, according to local ABC affiliate KMGH.

Officers fired a second tranquilizer shot and then watched, joined by a crowd of bewildered residents , and waited until they were sure the bear was fully sedated.

Around 8 p.m., nearly five hours after the bear was first spotted, it was removed from the tree.

15 funny kids who will make you feel great about your motor skills

Life can be tricky for kids. There's a whole lot to learn: how to eat food, drink water and walk around without crashing into things — and that's before you even get to the fancy stuff like blowing bubbles or spinning a hula hoop. All of these kids get a solid A for effort, but their execution still needs some work. Keep working at it, guys — practice makes perfect. In the meantime, we'll just sit here feeling grown-up and smug, because we know how to kick a ball. Kind of.

FOR THE BIRDS:

Supremely rare crane egg probably has more security than your house

Here's hoping this doesn't start a helicopter-parenting trend. Conservationists in the U.K. have scrambled to offer round-the-clock protection (a 24-hour security guard and a ring of video cameras) to an egg — the first common crane egg laid in western Britain in more than 400 years. The egg was laid by nesting pair cranes reared in captivity and reintroduced into the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust's Slimbridge Wetland Centre as part of the Great Crane Project, which has sought to revive a once-common species that is now all but extinct. "There is a long way to go before cranes become widespread again," said Nigel Jarrett, the center's head of conservation breeding, "but it is absolutely momentous to see this egg laid at Slimbridge."

Very interesting! Dropped in to read a bit and there is a story posted about the meteorite hitting the moon. Coincidentally, around 11:30 tonight I was standing outside and saw a shooting star fall, seemingly right by the moon. If you were to hold a ruler at arms length it would have measured about four inches from the moon from my vantage point. Very green in color, no tail, and had kind of a tracer effect.

Looking forward to checking out the videos tommorrow Abeliever.

I'm convinced this past winter solstace indeed marked changes. If not there seem to have been a whole lot of coincidences since then, not all bad.

Though I don't do all the reading and research like I used, I'm aware old Sol has been putting on quite a show. I'm wondering is there anything remarkable to the current 11 year peak compared to past ones.

Global warming on hold, cooling trends. Many years complaints of too hot are this years complaints of too cold. Killer tornado season arriving later than most every year since records have been kept.(I believe the last point is accurate) And probably so much I'm not aware of.

And what about all the earthquakes?! Just from reading Abelievers posts I gather there are severl swarms. Are they more than would be considered normal? More moderate to intense than normal?

I had marble sized hail Sunday night about 6 pm. My house is shaded by big trees and I keep the windows open and have 2 overhead ceiling fans suspended down from the apex wood ceiling that I installed (I removed the low ceilings and did away with the attic). I keep a small fan on a night stand by my bed and can hear the night sounds including one noisy rooster. LOL I am glad they don't chemspray here, never seen it except for videos. Country life is great!! I am Blessed.

Well if you go by the bible then it would mean the 7th seal has been broken and the end of times are near.If you by science there is a reasonable explaination for the birds dying.Myself I think there is something going on here that will end up being explained.I think it is strange how ever that dead birds in 3 states and dead fish being found on the shores.The crazy weather pattern,volcanic activity,earthquakes,tornados in the middle of winter.Makes you think.
THE BIBLE HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS. idiots! Take responsibility, and understand we don't take care of our environment. This has nothing to do with God or the bible.

FYI;
Air Quality at a Glance
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines air pollution as "The presence of contaminants or pollutant substances in the air that interfere with our health or welfare, or produce other harmful environmental effects."
Sources of Air Pollution
Most air pollution comes from everyday activities. Think about your average day. You get up, take a shower, use hair spray or gel, take the bus or drive to school or work, eat a charbroiled hamburger (lighter fluid), drive home, do chores (mow the lawn, paint your house, clean your windows), drive to soccer practice, etc. About 90% of air pollution is generated from these everyday activities. Less than 10% is created from industry. Cars and trucks are the number one source of air pollution in Oregon.
Oregon's Air Quality
Currently, all Oregonians live in areas that meet federal air quality standards. The Air Quality Index (AQI) is a scale used to report actual levels of ozone and other common pollutants in the air. The higher the AQI, the higher the health concern. The AQI is divided into categories that correspond to different levels of health concern.
Oregon's Air Quality History
It's important to remember Oregon's air hasn't always been this clean. In the early 1970's when monitoring of air first started, Oregon had serious air pollution problems. The Portland region sometimes violated the national air quality standard for ozone (smog) by as much as 50 percent! In 1981, one out of three days exceeded Carbon Monoxide (CO) violations in Portland. Now, due to new pollution control technology on vehicles and industries and the development of other pollution prevention programs, Oregon hasn't had a CO violation in years.
In the 1970’s a number of strategies were put into place to clean up the air. They focused on cars and trucks. This included new federal emission standards for vehicles, the launch of the vehicle inspection program in Portland and transit improvements. Other efforts included reformulating gas to make it less polluting and placing additional regulations on industry.
Should we be concerned about air quality? Yes.
As Oregon’s population continues to grow, so do the activities that contribute to air pollution. Not only are more vehicles on the road, but there are more people painting, using toxic household products, mowing their lawns and burning woodstoves. Also, more individuals are driving larger, less fuel-efficient vehicles. This results in emissions from these sources accumulate in our air, requiring a greater effort from everyone to keep the air clean and protect our health.
How DEQ Measures Air Pollution
Monitors or samplers are located in areas of the state with a history of, or the potential for, specific air pollution problems. To check current sampling sites in Oregon check our Air Quality Index.
Common air pollutants the Environmental Protection Agency regulates include: Ozone, Lead, Particulate Matter, Carbon Monoxide, Nitrous Oxide, Sulfur Dioxide and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s). DEQ’s Air Quality Annual Report contains additional information on air quality monitoring and pollutant concentrations in Oregon.
