It is a sunny, very windyand cool day in Daytona Beach. Feels like cold front is here. We are not even hitting 80F, and this is the first time since late Spring. Ocean is still warm, warmer than the air, but it is too choppy. 2 last days I keep the windows open at night, and we turned off the air conditioner.
Daytona Beach andsurrounding areas are filled with the sound of Harleys, better say thousands of Harleys, as this is the last day of Biketoberfest. People enjoy the weather, all the fun of this terrific event, music, food, showing off their pride bikes they love more than their wives and husbands (depending who is behind the wheel. I checked with MSN Weather and here what they show:
Local weather forecast Daytona Beach, FL
Current conditions (as of 12:53 PM)
Observed at Daytona Beach, Daytona Beach Regional Airport. All times shown are local to Daytona Beach.
Long ago in my "previous life" we lived in far north Russia, just 100 miles above the Arctic Circle. I was surprised to see that I can check the weather there on MSN. I typed in Vorkuta and it gave me a snapshot of the weather in the place where I spent 14 years of my life.
It is a very warm not really windy early winter day. I do not know whether this is due to Global warming, but in our days there the weather in the second half of October was much colder.
Yes, the wind is stronger than in Daytona Beach, but in Daytona we usually have light breeze, and in Vorkuta strong winds are common. I can't recall more than 3-4 quiet days in Vorkuta in a year.
Days are getting shorter, but still the sunset in Daytona Beach is at 6:49 PM, not 3:53 as in Vorkuta. And then, the term sunset does not really apply there. It is what we see here more than 300 days a year. In Vorkuta it is theoretical, as there you do not see the sun until practically April. All this time it is overcast, no sun whatsoever. Scientists say that the first ray of sun after polar night comes on the 1st of January, but in 14 years that I lived there I have seen only once a thin pink line on the horizon outlining the peaks of Polar Urals mountains.
Days will be the shortest in December. It will be getting dark by 6 PM. In Vorkuta the shortest days are 25 minutes, it is not light, it is dusk, you can't read at that light, but still there is 25 minutes of daylight. This is pretty much theoretical, you do not normally notice it as lights are on through days and nights.
Local weather forecast Vorkuta, RUSSIA
Current conditions (as of 7:00 PM)
Observed at Vorkuta. All times shown are local to Vorkuta.
What a difference. I am thinking whether to put on pants to celebrate coming winter or still just have shorts.
*Photo of Vorkuta (actually taken at the end of March 2007 from the train approaching Vorkuta) is a courtesy of Flicr. It just gives you the idea of tundra. The space defined by no definition. It is like trying to define nothing in its grandeur.
P.S. At least you do not need to worry about the UV index in Vorkuta as you can see above. It stays zero pretty much most of the time.
