The Engineers Did It #8

The Engineers Did It #8

Today’s Enjuhneer is brought to you by Nick, a Computer Systems Engineering alum who likes roller coasters and does NaNoWriMo every year.

This is also what Upstate New York literally looks like right now. Warm and snowy. What is this I don’t even.

Thanks, Nick! (And thank you to everyone else who sent me strips today. I love you all and plan to use them!)

    Yes it is, and for Carthage, after a day of bright and sunny skies, the next day, rain, with midnight snow. Where is the mad scientist messing with the weather here, I want to meet him.

  2. River says:

    Living in Calgary has made me question the suns very existence

  3. Psychlycan says:

    By the way, I have to wonder now where TrndTroll is from. Must be florida, or any of the states with their consistent weather and predicable temperatures.

  4. Metalwolf says:

    I have made plenty of jokes about the weather referring to 2012. This week we are supposed to make a 50+ degree swing in the midwest.

  5. Domo says:

    ha, forida having consistent weather, that’s a good one.

  6. bombadil_rocks says:

    and now it is snowing again

  7. Psychlycan says:

    My time in florida had sunny skies with the occasional shower. My time in new york had snow anytime between august and june, temperatures would change several times a day to a few extremes to where you could enter a building in a t-shirt and sweating, then leave to run through freezing snow to a car. Florida is pretty consistent weather and temperature wise compared to upstate new york. Actually, nitroglycerin is more stable than new york weather.

  8. Domo says:

    heh, no way, Lived quite a bit of my life in florida and new york, like almost all of in one of the two places.

  9. Psychlycan says:

    What part of new york may I ask, because new york city doesn’t count near as much when it comes to messed up weather. And I lived in northern and central florida for a few years each. Upstate new york is unpredictable, florida is placid by comparison.

  10. Domo says:

    I lived in upstate new york mostly, Lockport to be specific.

  11. Psychlycan says:

    Don’t know how we apparently have had drastically different experiences then.

  12. Andy4Hire says:

    Psychlycan and Domo: If I’ve correctly interpreted your comments to mean that you lived in Carthage, NY, and Lockport, NY, respectively, … well, Carthage and Lockport *are* almost 200 miles apart, and at opposite ends of Lake Ontario, so differences in their weather patterns wouldn’t be altogether unexpected. Maybe that accounts for the difference in your experiences?

    I’ve never lived in Florida, incidentally, but I imagine different parts of Florida have different levels of weather consistency just like different parts of anywhere would. I *have* lived in Tr– er, “Ilium,” and I can back Jenny up: the kind of thing she describes in this strip totally does happen there.

    Eyup, I remember those warm days when all everyone wanted to do was go outside for a snowball fight

  14. drmike says:

    By the way, did we ever work out the ID puzzle?

  15. Raven says:

    LOL Yeah see Calgary tends to transition from one weather extreme to another in the course of HOURS…makes for fun planning when going out. We had Snow, Fog, Ice Fog, and +10c weather in the last week alone. With high winds right now 😛

    y’know, over here in North Dakota, that happens just about every January
