Finally some real rain and it cooled off too! 77 F outside right now at 3:30 pm. Love it!
Until a few days ago my high inside was around 85 F, but it’s 87 F now and would be 89 by tonight if we didn’t have the storm. Hopefully I can get the house cooled down again. As long as we have mid 70s for a low I’m good here without ANY cooling other than a USB fan plugged into my notebook or power pack.
We’re just under 1/4″ of rain, but it is still softly raining now. Could use a little more!
Update: Got a little more rain off and on, perfect. 5:30 pm 72 F — 60s?
Yesterday internet and DSL were out all day and if finally came back on in the evening, only to go out again around 7:30 am this morning. Friday night was one of the worst wind storms we’ve had in a while, so I wasn’t too surprised about the outage yesterday. Maybe they’re still fixing stuff today.
Here’s the forecast for this week:
We’ll see how that turns out. I have countless boxes full of stuff to sell at the Saturday parking lot sales at the Collectors Corner and the last two Saturdays we got rained out.
Updated 2/6/17: It is so frustrating to have so many cloudy days. Last week we had one really nice day, I think on Wednesday, and Saturday also wasn’t bad, but we were seriously sprayed. Yesterday and today it was cloudy most of the day. Depressing! Update 6/12/17: Last Thursday was another very nice day, but… Continue Reading
I’m so used to SUNNY days and the countless cloudy and/or windy days this winter sure are depressing. Of course we need the rain, but it definitely was nice to have some sunshine today before the next storm hits. More sunshine starting Tuesday according to the forecast. I hope they’re right!
It’s going to be a COLD week! Forecast is for around freezing in Meadview which means low 20s for LMC. I hope they’re wrong! It’s strange that there’s no snow on the cliffs. We don’t have many deciduous trees with changing colors, but here’s one on Apple: Fire up the stove and bundle up!
My veggies loved that nice rain all night on Tuesday and then yesterday afternoon we got HAIL and many are pretty much dead. I was out hauling water and driving through sheets of hail and it sounded like rocks were hitting the truck. Here is some hail on the ground half an hour later: We… Continue Reading… Continue Reading
It’s 11 am and we got .87 inches over many hours. It rained all night, no runoff — PERFECT for planting. It’s a root planting day, perfect for onions and beets. We’re supposed to get more rain tonight, but it should be a pretty nice day now as the system passed over us.
For days we’ve been surrounded by storms and all we got was WIND and a few drops of rain a few times. Screenshot of the radar at 10:15 PM: We got almost 1/4 inch of rain in the 10 minutes since then in east Unit 7. I’d like about a 1/2 inch of rain tonight… Continue Reading
