  1. Dish Service Address

    Oops. Had to use the long cable a current location. It has purple connectors, not blue.
  2. OK. Finally got data from Minden, LA station. Highest reported TMAX 08/18/1909 112; 07/13/1901 111; 09/05/1921 110. This data was ordered from NCDC CDO noaa.gov. https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/cdo-web/search Data Set: Daily Summaries; Select Date Range: user input; Search For: Stations; Enter a Search Term: USC00166244. Then Add to Cart. Then Cart, View All Items. Then choose Custom GHCN-Daily CSV (for viewing in a spreadsheet). Next page confirm the date range and Continue. Next page, choose Air Temp then TMAX. Last page supply your email address. Eventually you will receive an email with a link to the data requested.
  3. 108 degrees F hit 08/08/1934 and 08/10/1934 109 degrees F hit 08/04/2011 Records taken from here https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/cdo-web/datatools/records
  4. Wait. Found station in Minden, LA. Currently located near Steam Power Plant https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/homr/#ncdcstnid=20009042&tab=LOCATIONS
  5. This is the closest USHCN station I could find. Depicts ammual mean TMAX temperature for Calhoun Research Station, 321 US-80, Calhoun, LA 71225. Taken from http://cdiac.ornl.gov/cgi-bin/broker?_PROGRAM=prog.climsite_daily.sas&_SERVICE=default&id=161411&_DEBUG=0#gplot_meanclim_yr (from number 7, choose TMAX and change begin year to 1893, then press Get the Plot) NOTE: 2014 is the latest data available from this source.
  6. My point, as indicated earlier, was to demonstrate that recent temperatures are not out of line with historic measurements. If history shows temps as high as recent measurements then I am hard pressed to understand how repeating those same temps is going to have such a detrimental effect. The "models" predict increasing temps, but I do not think actual data in Louisiana supports any future scary temps in that state.
  7. I would have thought that the link itself (i.e., ncdc.noaa.gov) would have been enough to verify the graph authenticity. I really do not know how to obtain the actual data behing the graph.
  8. 8/1954 had 17 days g.t. 100 with high 105; 8/1956 had 15 day g.t. 100 with high 104
  9. I am in no way disputing a local reading of 112 degrees. Temperatures vary significantly over small areas due to local effects. However, the state of Louisiana has not shown increasing average summer temperatures: (taken from https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/temp-and-precip/state-temps/ )
  10. Just curious, where have you seen spikes over 110 degrees that are unusual (meaning that there are no historical spikes over the same hurdle)?
  11. Dish Service Address

    I've used 200' quad shield, solid core RG6 from Pro-Wire Communications multiple times over the last 3+ years with success with my Tailgater. Has blue connectors.
  12. Are You Still In?

    There was horizontal drilling and fracking way earlier, albeit nowhere near as far horizontally. I am personally aware of efforts in the Austin Chalk near College Station in the 1980's. I would be cautious of an "expert" who thought it started around 2008/2009.
  13. America The Beautiful Senior Pass

    My better 2/3's just became eligible for an America the Beautiful pass. Can we reserve a site at say a COE campground for 14 days using my number and then turn around and reserve the same (or different site) in the same campground for another 14 days using her number?
