By |March 24th, 2011|

OK it will be all over the news but here’s the local Belmont scoop. Just as a back-up to our weather station which uploads to the internet, I have this visual aid in our backyard because I guess I am a geek for starters (I also have triple redundancy for my hard drives now), but […]

Orion in the night sky in Belmont

By |October 9th, 2010|

Just thought I’d share this with everyone.
 
We’ve always enjoyed astronomy and love it when there’s a new moon and we can get a good look at the night sky.
In Belmont, we’re pretty close to the city (San Francisco) and get a lot of city light which tends to wash-out the night sky.
If we look south-south-west […]

Summer Succombs to Fall in Belmont

By |September 9th, 2010|

Anyone feeling like the weather has turned whimsical at best? First we have the coldest August in the Bay Area since 1958, and then we start September with a heat wave and one of the best Labor Day Weekends in recent memory, to be followed by rain?
Sunday evening, September 6th at 5:00, while we were […]

Belmont’s Beautiful Weather

By |October 27th, 2008|

It was really neat to meet our Belmont neighbors at our open house on Hallmark Drive yesterday–thanks to all who stopped by. We had an amazing turn-out and the weather couldn’t have been more cooperative. Incidentally we did a survey at the open house where we asked our guests if they thought the home was […]

This can be found on NASA’s web site. According to folklore, October’s full moon is called the “Hunter’s Moon” or sometimes the “Blood Moon.” It gets its name from hunters who tracked and killed their prey by autumn […]

Belmont, Feeling the Chill?

By |June 5th, 2008|

It’s official. We’ve had a month of colder than usual weather interrupted only by a four day stint of hotter than usual days in the middle of May. Being one of best months for warm weather, May sure was a disappointment. And now June, notorious for windy conditions is upon us and it’s living up […]

Belmont’s Beautiful Heat Wave

By |May 15th, 2008|

A week ago I posted a blog complaining about the relentless wind in Belmont over the past several weeks. This week we are enjoying record high temperatures not seen since 1970. Personally, I love the warm temperatures and slight breezes we get that take the edge off the heat.
May 14th we had high clouds which […]

Belmont is in need of some negativity

By |May 8th, 2008|

If you’ve been thinking like we have, you’re probably wondering when will the weather get a little warmer.
The wind has been relentless this month. Our Davis weather station located at our home in the Hallmark area of Belmont, has been collecting data since we moved to from Barclay Way in 2001. We’ve been broadcasting it […]

By |October 26th, 2007|

Today marks the occasion of the “Hunter’s Moon”. A full moon which occurs each October but this year is special. Tonight’s full Moon is the biggest full Moon of 2007. It’s no illusion.  The Moon’s orbit is an ellipse with one side 30,000 miles closer to Earth than the other. The full Moon of […]
