Strong Santa Ana Winds


Recommended Posts


This is Palm Talk, not Western U.S. Weather [http://westernusawx.com/forums/index.php?] where you are banned for making outrageous forecast statements. I do not want to get into a conflict with you but merely ask you to be credible if you want to warn palm growers about the weather. You read the models & make a prediction a week ahead when responsible meteorologists factor in the huge possibility that things can change & qualify the forecast. That is all that I am asking you to do. The fun of studying weather data\ models & making predictions is fine. You refer to it as your "hobby" as it is mine hobby & why I also post opinions\ observations on weather websites that would probably be inappropriate or just plain boring for this site. But I also love palm trees so if I can keep other gardeners aware of what might be helpful in protecting their trees than the two hobbies occasionally merge.

Disagreements are fine and healthy here on PalmTalk as long as they do not become personal and impolite. This discussion may have already crossed that line.

But I think it is interesting to note how passionate weather discussions can become between "weather nuts," just as the same occurs among "palm nuts." However, please keep it to a cordial discussion about the topic, not about each other.

Thanks to those of you who help make this a fun and friendly forum.

Thank you. I took it to PM and that is where I intended on keeping it.

If anyone wants to contact me I'll update my profile to the messengers and such. I always enjoy talking off forums into "real-time" chat.
