New Idea for Nuclear Fusion

My home is on Orcas Island, Washington but I lived most of my life in Hawaii--so my name here is "Maui," the Polynesian demi-god of solar-terrestrial physics. I have a theory that the Sun influences volcanoes in ways which are illuminated by Hawaiian and New Zealand legends, and some day this energy may be harnessed to produce electricity. One promising new idea is that volcanic tritium might be used to fuel hybrid nuclear reactors, which use fission to create fusion.

Hi from East Central Kentucky

It's been awhile since I've been to the weather forum and see that it has changed a bit. I live in east central Kentucky in the bluegrass region. I've been reading The Old Farmer's Almanac since I was a kid. My grandfather used it as a tool for planting and harvesting. He and I used to just enjoy looking through it together. I love coming here and reading everyone's seasonal predictions and forecasts.

Spider Webs

Hi, I am Dian, and live in West Central Wisconsin, (about 1-1/2 hrs east of the twin cities). Was wondering if anyone have ever heard about spiderwebs on the road meaning early frost. Our local news center also quotes weather from past almanacs. Usually around noon with the market reports for the farmers. I love to almanac, and now that it is on line, I love it even more.

Aloha, my name is Urchin and

Aloha, my name is Urchin and I live on the island of Hawai'i. It is impossible to predict the weather for this island as the trades and water temp control the direction of the weather at hand. Such as Kauai gets the hurricanes but not the island of Hawaii due to the temp change in water. This does not mean that my island will never see a hurrican it just means that it is unlikely for a hurricane to hit this island naturally. I have been reading "The Farmers Almanac" since 1957 and my parents utilized this literature as if it were the Bible at times. This was the way of the 50"s for most families and ours was no different. I also lived in another part of the country at that time. Anyway Aloha All.....

Hello New to site

I live at 40 degrees, 59', 49"N
79 degrees, 49', 53" W
I guess I live in a temperate zone but, I don't know which weather zone defined by the Almanac (6 or 7) I should use. Any thoughts?

Hello From Vermont

As I now live in Vermont i'm finding yes it gets chilly and our leaves are starting to change and fall which actually it is beautiful.Looks like we are in for quite a winter and it's always good to stock up on those things called staples,food,candles,kerosene lanterns and things so for me let the snow come.

Frost date in Victoria

April 19th for frost in Vic....mmm... I'm a native, perhaps it happened one year but look at the Van frost date March 28th and I think we're warmer than Van. The April 19th date is not accurate....even if it was for one year....what year was that? . note first frost is the same for both Vic and Van at Nov. 5...reasonable. I've seen the April 19th dates on other sites but I've also found Mar 10 for Vic which does seem a little early so how about we call it even and make Victoria's last frost date the same as Vancouver's....March 28th....I can live with that....the 19th of April is rediculous for Victoria.....thanks
