Got the Chesterville airfield mowed this morning.
Couple hrs. got it done with a 7' mower behind a 32 hp JD tractor.
Deer Flies were after me even at 10 mph. Smell of Raspberries in the air
had to stop and eat some. Bumper crop of berries this year.

Weather has been unseasonably pleasant for the last few days, and looks set to continue through the week. Light breeze from the South is keeping things cool, and some light frosts or fog most mornings. but it's been clearing up to a great winter day. This was yesterday, doing a delivery to a local farmer. You can see why they built the house where they did.  Not so good for the skiers though. The local ski field is the little light colored triangle just below the current snow level.

I won't mow until next week here and it will be 3 weeks. No scarcity of water, garden growing real nice this year.

This was the first year I had deer flies and horse flies come into a shop like house flies. They's hungry for blood. Funny, walking around the yard, only see one at ya for a piece. :D

83° yesterday, dry heat. 70°F out there now. Had the window up since 11:00 pm, not even stickiness.

It's been getting in the high 80's but it's a dry heat .Being amidst these rather large trees it's kind of like natures air conditioner . Next couple of days heavy rains are predicted as a result of the hurricanes in the  gulf of Mexico .Most if not all of the wheat has been harvested so it won't hurt the farmers . The rest of the crops look good including my little garden .

I haven't found it to be all that humid here, been low 80's for temps. It certainly hot enough in the bright sunshine in the middle of the lawn, but not heavy close air. Maybe I'm just adjusted to it. The hills don't even look muggy. It was 70° here this morning.

Steamy hot in these parts.
 High temps and high humidity. Working outside soaking wet in 1/2 hr 
so inside with AC good part of the day.
Looks like the norm for a good spell.

Well the fakecast was again inaccurate today. They said 'cooling' and not getting above 85 on the dry bulb, but it hit 92 at one point and the humidity is again over 75%, it's another oppressive day for sure. The remnants of Beryl went further north than guessed and will miss us. We got some sprinkles today, not enough to use the wipers. Looks like our reunion on Saturday is largely safe from a rainout. Up on the hill in VT it is always dryer and a little cooler and there is always (almost) a breeze and I am looking forward to all of that. :wink_2: The humidity is predicted to trend downward a bit next week. I sure hop so. Stuck in the middle of an 80 acre hayfield with no shade except what we create. The crew working up there the last week and a half are suffering big time getting the heavy work done. Finishing work on some dirt jobs, putting up the big 40x100' tents, building stages and dance floors, it's a ton of heavy work for sure. Oh to be young again. Hopefully the weather will moderate a bit more for the next 10 days when we have the big crowds up there.
 We get what we get. I am laying low waiting for the cool of evening now so I can load the truck for VT. We leave in the AM.

Wasn't bad here, 82° and humidity was not high. The hills are clear. I've seen worst days with your shirt and clothes wet from doing hardly anything. It was a great day, great last three days actually. We will see rain for a couple days off the hurricane. Not expecting any wind much. Might not even get as much way up here as in NS. I still haven't seen any big deal about their heat warnings for us. Musta been worst further south of us for heat and humidity. Just ordinary summer for me.

Have a good time Tom.

SD, when you say the humidity was 'not high" do you have a number for that or is it just a physical perception? I know when we fished for a week or two at a time up on the St. Lawrence, it would be a rare year we complained or even thought about the humidity, but we did have a few years where it got bad, they were rare and we would just get out on the river in the main channel breeze and not care.
 I keep track of the numbers just because I can and find it interesting to relate a number to what is happening. Today, the RH in my attic kiln hit 24%, but the temp was 125°. ffcheesy
 The drive tomorrow is easy, just 2.5 hours. It feels a lot longer coming home and traffic will be worse on Sunday, but I have to get home and repack to leave on Monday. ffcheesy

38C here today (100F), forecast says we will have at least a week of this. I haven't heard of any new fires in this area but a lightening storm could change that quickly, the forests are dry and logging is shut down. Sure can't get ambitious enough to do anything constructive.

Well, right now the RH is 70% because of approaching rain. But it was showing 48% here earlier today in the sunshine. Yeah, I've seen 'close' RH lots of times. This has been much dryer and the clothes stay dry doing light stuff around the yard. In bad RH, you sweat just driving a lawn mower and your arms bead up. And I mowed the lawn today, never broke a sweat.

I just watched the news and they said 70 here. 
I went and picked up a bucketful of wood, all small stuff, no bigger than 4 inches and most was 2 inches and I am seating by the air conditioner cooling off. Did not do much and I am wet!!!! Or I was. Nice and cool and dry now.
Yesterday it started to shower around 3 and did the same thing again today. Having a little shower now at 7:30.

Over 1" rain so far, the wind is starting to pick up since daylight. Maybe 10 mph from the East. Can still hear the rain hit the roof, so pretty good drink.

The wind has settled back down, we have 1-1/4" rain so far here. Still raining, but not hard, but a steady amount of rain.

What can I say, here in Las Vegas the weather makes me want to delete myself from existence. It's so HOT, like I feel I could fry an egg on the road. But at least the humidity isn't that high. Still, I'm thinking of moving to Alaska just so I can live somewhere colder

Still raining here, most of the day was mist, but it's been raining a good pace here for a couple hours. It hasn't rained 1/2" yet today, but looks like it will be there in an hour. Looks like a week long dry stretch starting this weekend, not super hot, low to mid 80's and upper 70's. Good growing weather.  :thumbsup:
