Yes on the rain.
Looks like we are headed for some high 70's and 80's temps. Cooler shirts will be worn.

By Monday morning you'll have the jacket on with 60's for temps. :D I think Tuesday-Wednesday will be warm, but rain Wednesday and a cooling down into 60's rest of the week.

Showery weather here now. Not suppose to be a steady rain, and ain't so far.

That’s perfect temperature for working in the woods anyway. Put a jacket on work for 10 mins and it comes off lol . Cool down quickly when take break too

We had some heavy downpours throughout the day here, water running over land. But, just up the road closer to the mountain was a lot more rain, a good soaking up there. Even the woods road up by the woodlot is slimy wet. The mosquitoes really love that wet humid air up there. I had to put the bug net on when going for a walk out the bike trail. I did here my first bittern of the year down in the beaver pond.

Crazy sounding bird, he has to gulp to make his call. ;D Click on some of the other calls below this one. I'm used to the 2nd call.

Yes we need rain here too. Wife mowed the wet hole as we call it. Some years she can not mow it until mid June, because that area is too wet and she will get stuck in the mud. This area is fed by at least 2 springs.
I have 64° all ready at 5 in the morning.
Might even get the tomatoes in today. Kinda late for us. Most years we get things in early. At least I don't have to worry about frost, so much. But saying that, probably about 15 years ago we had a frost about June 4-5. I can remember because we had a greenhouse and we was selling stuff. Many came back to buy tomatoes plants.

This is my first year going big on a garden. It’s about 30x15 ft . Kale, radish, lettuce, yellow bell peppers, cucumber, green peas, yellow pea/beans, cauliflower,tomatoes,  so I’m pretty invested in the weather this year and also hoping no frost  ;D. Cost of living I’ve decided to try to save any money where I can, I’m not sure how good of crops I will get, the soil is sandy loam with a good forrest duff layer and sheep manure tilled up. Have yet to set the trellis netting or deer netting but that won’t take too long

Do they make heated humming bird feeders?  :D
Yes on the shower.  :(  We got a shower at home, a few days ago, nothing at work, as you know 15 minutes away.
A bit cool this morning. 
No cooler shirt this morning. ;D
I digging grass out of one corner of the garden. Sure is dry.

Everything here is saturated. I can't move top soil for another day. ::) I did move some Ranger dump bed loads of soil on rough patches though and seeded down. The rest I have to push around with the tractor and use the Ranger and a weighted pallet to smooth it up since the tractor will just pack it to much. We have been lucky the last 4 weeks to get 1 to 2" every week. I hope it keeps on all summer, won't have to haul water. :) The grass I leave go where the old barn sat is now chest high where there is some soil, sorta ledgy there. But below the garden is deep loam, grass is tall in there as raspberry canes. I notice the bobolinks around the tall grass looking for a home. The R2D2 bird. :)

Raining again, just a very light one. 60F before daylight. Going to get colder for the rest of the week. ;)

edit: Well, here it is about 7:00 am and the rain is done. Going to be 80F today and breezy, but end in thunderstorms tonight bringing in cold air.
