Northeast US Pumpkin Shortage Likely Due to Hurricane Irene


We continue to feel the effect of Hurricane Irene. Turns out the storm has added insult to injury and put a dent in the fall pumpkin crop in the northeast US. Smashing Rain Records Smashing Pumpkins | AccuWeather quotes expert Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski: "The area from eastern and central Pennsylvania and northern Delaware northward to Vermont and New Hampshire has received between 1 and 2 feet of rain since Aug. 1."


Reports are out that whole pumpkin patches have washed away, and those remaining are rotting. Wholesale prices have doubled. Luckily, it's not yet a total loss in the Northeast, and the states of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and California also grow and supply pumpkins for Halloween. If all else fails, decorative pumpkins are fun too.

Stay Toasty Warm with a Dyson Hot Fan Heater


If the weather is cooling off where you are, soon staying warm will be a top priority. The new Dyson Hot Fan Heater oscillates smoothly to distribute heat across the whole room, keeping you and yours toasty warm.

It pivots on its own center of gravity, so it stays put and you can direct airflow where you want it. The temp can be set between 32 and 99 degrees, so the unit can do double duty as a cooling fan.
The Dyson Hot Fan Heater comes with a remote control unit, curved and magnetized to store neatly on top of the loop amplifier. There are no fast-spinning blades or visible heating elements, so it is easy to clean. And if your pets or children tip it over, an automatic cut out switches off the heating plates.

Free Shipping is available on Dyson vacuums and fans.

WeatherWise: Will the Recent Extreme Weather Spoil Fall Foliage?


The USA experienced one of the driest July months on record followed by a drenching in late August. Will the recent extreme weather spoil the much anticipated fall foliage? Penn State's fall foliage expert Dr. Marc Abrams doesn't think so.


Dr Abrams is a professor of Forest Ecology in the School of Agriculture and began studying 25 years ago to determine the particular weather conditions that successfully result in gorgeous foliage. He explains at Fear Not, Recent Extreme Weather No Spoiler for Fall Foliage | AccuWeather:

"Really, one of the most important things is what happens in the end of September and the first two weeks of October," Abrams said.

Cool, crisp temperatures are the key for brightly colored leaves. In those weeks, nighttime temperatures hopefully fall into low 30s and 40s with bright sunny days and dry weather.

But great leaves this fall aren't a sure thing. If the weather stays warm and wet, "that will be a problem. [The leaves] won't go into their normal coloration."

The leaves are brightest when the cool weather starts at the end of September. If the cooldown starts in late October instead, Abrams says that the colors aren't as vibrant.

Planning a trip? The Colors of Fall Road Trip Guide [above] by Jerry and Marcy Monkman details 25 of the best scenic tours during fall foliage season in New England. Available in Kindle and Paperback.

WeatherWear: Raincatch Water Purification Raincoat


Some among us predict shortages of clean drinking water on the planet Earth in the not-so-distant future. The Raincatch, designed by CIID students Hyeona Yang and Joshua Noble, is a raincoat that collects and purifies rain water. The collar of the coat captures the rain which is then passed through charcoal filters and a chemical purification system. Voila, drinkable water, which is stored around the shoulders and pockets of the coat.
