Mr Mews Explains the Weather

"Yes, I think it's going to be a wet, cold winter here in the Pacific Northwest Quigs," Mews states overlooking the courtyard.  "It's already quite blustery out.  Quigs, did you know that El Nina is Spanish for The Nina?"

"You're quite the comic, Mews.  Feeling a little jaunty today?  I don't know, this El Nino and El Nina business gets me terribly confused Mews," Quigley says over a mid afternoon huckleberry scone.

"Yes, it can be a little confounding.  Looks like we're in a La Nina cycle now which generally means there are cooler than normal sea surface temperatures in the central and eastern Pacific Ocean.  The mid western and south eastern United States usually becomes drier and warmer, but the Pacific Northwest gets..."

"Colder and wetter, yes.  Drats.  Perhaps.  I should migrate to Florida for the winter Mews."

"And leave me here to fend for myself on these cold winter nights?  I'll have none of that talk Quigley!"  


  1. Mews, what's the forcast for us Cats here in the desert? And can we have a scone? Yum!

  2. Hi Mr. Mews, thanks for joining Pet Blogs United!

    I really enjoyed your weather lesson.

    Nubbin wiggles,

  3. Hooray for scones! You can join us here in south Florida for the winter. The weather in fall and winter here is fabulous. The summer, not so much.

  4. It will be cold and snowy here this winter! Good weather for snuggling in with a nice cup of tea :)

  5. Hi Mr. Mews! Thanks for explaining that to us - now we know what it has been so much warmer than normal here - it is that La Nina thing! Too bad you can send some of your cool here and we coudl send you some warm - we think it needs to get a bit cooler here!
