Not gonna see any sun here today. It took all last evening for the dew point and the air temp to coincide and allow rain, which started just after midnight. We are now well over 1/2" of rain and a lot more coming through the day. Glad I got the grass cut yesterday, this rain would have forced me to get a brush hog or sickle mower to cut it. ffcheesy

TV news said still 14,000 + without power in NC. Lot more without power in other states as well. FL had the most without.

Widened out the garden some to give more room to the tomatoes and peppers. Ground is a little packy this morning from the little bit of rain we got.

Northern lights last night here.

36°F this morning and another decent dry day to start anyway. Got to work up some garden and put the onions in.  ffsmiley  The black flies will likely be out chewing by mid morning. Might see 60° today. Yesterday was 55°F.

Rhubarb close to ready for Jam and Pie. 
Missed the light show last night, tired.  zzzz_smiley Maybe tonight.
Still burning wood with close to freezing mornings .

I've got one old crown of Rhubarb you could pick now. The one beside it seems to be slow this spring, usually just as big. Both had stalks the size of your wrist last spring. They were huge. Maybe no snow cover affected the other one? Usually a big drift across the garden, but recently the breeze way has closed up with birch trees. I suspect some stuff will have less fruit this year, the raspberries and grapes were heavy with fruit last year. I have enough jam for 2 more years. I eat it every day to.  ffcheesy

No fire yesterday morning, but afternoon sun and open windows cooled it off a little, so made an evening smudge. I leave my bedroom window open from April onward until we get that heat and high humidity days. Late evening or a nice summer cold front and up she goes again.  ffwave  Could see some rain mid week, but so far their rain forecasts have turned into dry popcorn.  ffcheesy  

Fiddle heads here are gone by now, 2 foot tall fronds now. And I never saw any last week up at a couple patches I have. Mom bought some from a neighbor, ate some, froze some, gave some away to a couple senior friends.  :thumbsup:

I make a smudge here every morning lately, does 24 hrs unless a cold rain in the 40's all day. Was 45° here this morning and got to 66° here this afternoon. I've got a little bit of firewood I want to burn up and then stack new wood in the basement. Not a lot of the old stuff left inside. I have 2-1/2 cords dry outside under the porch though. 

The ground hasn't been muddy around here for a long time, dry and hard as summer. So not fighting mud. So far just little spirts of rain in the 1/4" range about 4 times this month. Looks like showers for next two days, but nothing to brag about.

So far today we've had just a short spurt of sprinkles around 3:00 pm. Suppose to do that for 3 days. Doesn't sound like much coming.  The beech tree out back sure opened up the last 2 days. Going to be in the 70's for the next week

We also got a blow Sunday night.  I had about a 100 mile trip to make this morning and saw probably 25+ Oak trees down.

Looks to be another 70° day, 74 today.
About 54° this morning.
The heat will be off again today.
Have not been a warm May. I only turned the heat off a few times this month.
No frost in sight in 10 days. Will have to see what the next 10 days look like.
Had supper last night and I went outside to do some work and it just started to rain.
