We've been forecasting this for days -- and here it is!

RECORD BREAKING temperatures along the Oregon Coast. The official temperature out of the North Bend airport today was 93 degrees (keep in mind the "norm" is 67), smashing the old record of 86 in 1939.  

When the weather gets a bit crazy -- you e-mail me. I can't tell you enough how much I enjoy hearing from ALL of you. So, with this intense heat along the coast, here's just a sampling of your observations: 

  • How about 91 in Coos Bay at about 2pm, 100 at 4.  I was parked on 101 going south and was in the shade.  my car registered 100 when I staarted out.  it was down to 95 to 93 by thetime I got home at 5.   it is way toooooooooooooooo hot for us, lucky there is a little bit of humidity.  hope it holds....The temp display in my car read 103 degrees at 5 pm (in Sumner).  (Temp measured by antenna on outside of vehicle.)

  • I live in the neighborhood just to the west of North Bend airport and it was 100 degrees on my back porch thermometer. It is in the shade.
     
  • 109-degrees at 4 pm on our balcony (across from Horsfall Beach/North Bend). 
     
No doubt, it's been a HOT end to summer along the coast and here in the valley. Let me know what's happening in your neighborhood by e-mailing me at swayne@kval.com

I took this photo about 10 AM, but since it was in the shade of one of our trees, I decided to use the flash and it made it look more like I had taken it at night.
YouNews Spider from space Spider from space
While plucking dead blossoms from my Petunia plant I noticed this unusual spider so decided to take a photo of it. After loaded the shot in my computer I saw that the design on it's back looked like some sort of 'space alien'. Interesting. Enjoy.
YouNews Private Drone Used to Report Fire Private Drone Used to Report Fire
Saw smoke from a lightening strike in the hills above our place. Flew my RC plane with camera to check out the smoke. At the same time we alerted the fire department and explained we had a drone checking out the situation.
