What a gorgeous passion flower! Mine aren't blooming yet - maybe it's because in this area, we are still in Spring (and may end up skipping Summer and going directly to Autumn...)

Ah, well, we had a nice spring (if somewhat windy), but then skipped summer and went right back to winter. This pic is from this morning:

I can box up some of this 95 degree temp (tied a record yesterday here), and ship it out to you. Looks like you could use it.

Please do! I'm thinking we're going to have to fire up the wood stove this evening. I'm wearing a sweater (and still cold), and the cats are really protesting.

Scary here..

Yeah it is scary here in California. We are east of Sacramento and west of Tahoe 'bout half way in between. Driest year so far in history. The reserviors are around 50% of capacity and we are looking at an extreme fire season. Really scary.

We never really had a "mud" season here in northern Maine and the trees, plants, and grass are more beautiful than ever! This weekend will probably be the first couple of days in a row, this Spring, where we might see the high 80's or the low 90's. Generally the days have been in the 50's and 60's while the nights have dropped into the 40's. I normally have the pool open by Memorial Day but, so far, I haven't even removed the cover or hooked up the pump and filter. For the record, being a southern boy, I don't even think about swimming until the pool water hits at least 80 deg! Even the black flies haven't been too bad in most places - but I'm sure we'll get another hatch or two! We lost a lot of trees and shrubs to the heavy snows - but it still beats the heck out of the misery a lot of people have been suffering across the U. S. - and, yes, the world!

Summer hit here Sunday

We're very sensitive to the weather as it has a major effect on our call volume at Answer Center. It's been cooler than usual and we've had really violent thunderstorms - including a couple of tornados which are very rare around the coast. Even more oddly, there have been many late evening storms that have generated tornado warnings and Hail warnings - so far, so good... but anxiety provoking. The only thing that was near the trailer has been pea sized and quickly over.

Then Sunday they predicted 90 degree weather for the entire week. Instant sweatbox! 95% humidity too. Bleeee! Well, cha-ching as far as the answering service is concerned. Lots of air conditioning emergencies!

I'm heading to St Louis Mo. on June 14 for the annual ATSI Convention (Association of Telemessaging Services International). I understand their weather is brutally hot and humid too. See you down the road. Anyone know of a good campground in St. Louis?

skipped spring went straight to summer

Here in the Mid-Mississippi River Valley, it seems that we entirely skipped the month of May in terms of weather. We went from near daily rain storms then switched immediately to high temperatures in the 90s with 80%+ relative humidity and severe thunderstorms at least once or twice a week. So far, we have escaped the worst of the severe weather -- we have had several storms with dime or pea sized hail of short duration and a couple that have blown limbs out of trees -- we have been close to towns with tornadoes, but thus far all we have seen have been a few wall clouds.

Today is a good example -- I drove to St. Louis with the top down on my New Beetle -- the car's thermometer registered between 90 and 96 degrees during the trip, and the local radio stations were reporting relative humidity between 70 and 80%. If the wind hadn't been blowing a near constant 25 MPH, it really would have been uncomfortable. This evening, I was "drizzled" on twice, but it wasn't long-lived enough to raise the top.

The weather forecasters are suggesting that we may see a break in the humidity next week. I am hopeful, but pessimistic -- I have to prep both my Argosy and Cadillac for their trip to the Midwest Forums Rally then on to the International Rally in Bozeman.

Boy it's still Spring here. It's really hot and windy, but the tornado warnings are in effect tonight again. Here's my pond this morning, hope it's still there tomorrow.

Nice pond! Are those koi I see in there? We have one koi that was rehomed (reponded?)when my brother and sister in law went fulltime RVing, the rest are just goldfish.

Here is my one Koi. They are not really cold weather fish and although I intend to get at least two more, they are so expensive I haven't done it yet. Some of the other fish are goldfish, pond comets and a couple of names I can't spell!
