  1. Why was this post entitled “Worth a visit and bookmarking”? Would it not have been better to name it something relevant like “Weather Picture of the Day”? A number of posts recently have had titles that make it difficult to guess the content from an RSS listing. Is it possible to ensure that everyone who posts articles to this excellent blog uses meaningful titles? Thanks.

  2. At last. Flooding due to…..”global cooling”, as the northern hemisphere snowpack decides to change phase. Another crop of land-enriching crevasse-splays does their able best to inconvenience the denizens of FLOOD plains everywhere.

  3. What a terrible tragedy in the South. My family’s feelings go out to all affected with either lost ones, the injured, or those who lost their homes.

    In addition to the RSS feed, Ric Werme’s Guide to WUWT only displays the title of the post and not the rest of the tease on the home page.
    How about “Introducing the Weather Picture of the Day”?
    Like the recent post “Introducing the WUWT Global Climatic History Page”.

  5. I guess it’s just the Hillbilly in me but I never could understand why people like to build houses in the creek bottom. There’s a reason the land down there is flat… great for farmin’… lousy for livin’…

  6. Tips and Notes doesn’t seem to be working this morning, maybe it’s ok to mention this here. The local paper is headlining a report released by the Interior Department last week making long term precipitation forecasts based on climate change.

    Cites Salazar and local (CA) politicians.
    All eight basins should see an increase in temperature of about 5 degrees to 7 degrees Fahrenheit by the end of the century, the report says.”

  7. “I guess it’s just the Hillbilly in me but I never could understand why people like to build houses in the creek bottom.”
    Waterfront (riverfront) sells for a premium price, and you can buy it back cheap after each flood and sell it once more to the next sucker. Those old farm houses up on the hill, they don’t fetch nearly as good a price. Why would anyone want to live up on the hill?

  8. Just a note to Joe Crawford.
    Here in the UK flood plains are having complete housing estates built on them by companies and when the occasional rain does come along all we get is look at the flooding due to global warming.

  9. I do not use RSS feeds, and have no problem looking past the initial title. The quality of information on this blog is consistently of the highest order and all the contributors have earned my respect and trust. I have no issue trusting that what they find interesting is worth a look. Personally I enjoy not having the exact description in all postings. It isn’t like I am ordering steak and getting fish, while paying for steak. The title was appropriate and to the point, without those pathetic puns you see from journalists these days. And yes, it was worth a visit, and I did bookmark it.
    Thanks for the tip.

  10. My own Hillbilly roots and my wife’s (West Va./Eastern KY) make us look at where and how we live. We left the south left Coast of Oregon to the high lonesome of NE Oregon.
    No more Tsunami/Earthquake worries.My Gr. Grandfather was a Farmer of some note in West Va. and Missouri . The old Farm House still there in the Ozarks, -on a hill…

  11. A new record crest was recorded at Cairo, IL early this morning beating the one set in 1937. The Army Corps of Engineers has done a heroic job trying to mitigate the damage by damming up Lakes Barkley and Kentucky (Tenn. and Cumberland Rivers) to try and buy people time to lay sandbags. They’re now down to their last option which is to blow the levee on the Mississippi just south of Cairo to flood the vast New Madrid flood plain. General Walsh makes the decision this afternoon around 3pm Central Time.

  12. Any problems with some of us adding a WPOTD widget to our own sidebars? I can build one, but figure I should ask first. Would it be acceptable to use your image as a link directly to the WPOTD site?
    Cheers!
