Yesterday was a cold rain for sure, 58F out there yesterday in the wet. ;D Today was wet to start from 1/4" rain over night and then sun came out before noon, not clear. Then by 5:00pm  the showers moved in. Today it might have hit low 70's I think. Nice bush whack'n weather. :D Thankfully it has not been a real hot summer up here. 

I see the squash in the garden that survived the bugs has leaves like car tires. :)

54F here and some low fog. Clouds moving in from the east. Had a small thunder cracker last evening, but the rain shower only fell over the Masardis hills west of here in Maine.

Only got to 70F yesterday.

Got .3 of rain yesterday am, by 2pm it was all dried up. Fire danger never even dropped down. Now today there is a red flag extreme fire danger warning. 

The .3" was great but we need lots more.

Raining this morning. Dont care. Im outside for it, aint got time for it. 

That field I have cut, the oak seedlings are sprouting everywhere, despite no oak in that immediate area but spruce, must have been some oak there years ago and those acorns were just a waiting in the soil  for a long time for a opening! Deer has easy Pickens. Keeps them off my pine seedlings, gonna bush hog it back down anyway this fall.

Well with it that it that dry youd want the rain a bit gradual not in a down pour, the ground would be so compact and dry I imagine everywhere would flood real quick lol

66 and suppose to get to the low 80's today. Warmest day of the 10 day forecast. Tomorrow high 70's than it drops back to the low 70's. Last year was kinda on the cool side too. But that can change.
We had about 3-4 hours of rain yesterday. Started around 9am stopped maybe around noon or 1. Kinda odd on the rain back. Most years lawns are kinda on the brown side now. Now there are all green!!!

Same here on the lawn. We usually get a dry heat wave around this time of year, the contrast of events from west vs east coast this year has been pretty crazy. Some super droughts, some areas like OGH area only rain for weeks

I don't remember any cool here last year, 80's and 90's all summer. Got it written down to. :D Today we got 0.5" of rain from a thunder clapper. Then it turned muggy and hot in the 80's. But suppose to cool off tomorrow night into the 40's and be clear Wednesday, wet with showers the rest of the week. I waited out the clapper for 1/2 an hr, but the other boys went home. I stayed until 3:00 and got 1-1/2 acres cut in plantation. When a clapper hits your block you get to the truck. One strike hit dead centre ka-bango!!. :D :D

The guessers keep putting 70% chances of rain and T-storms in the forecast and nothing ever happens. Still sitting at less than 2" of rain since May 1st. 

Neighbors herd of cattle went on a truck today. Been cows on the farm steady since 1906 he says, now the place sits empty looking like a desert. He's not the first or the last to go under this year sadly. I'll be there pretty quick at this rate.

You're getting what we had last year chevy, we never had rain for weeks until Oct-Nov before it let loose, any damp spell was mist during the summer. The woods should have been closed by rights, but the Irvings told the government you're about to lay off lots of folks if you do that. And the Irvings have pull, so it never closed. But the Irvings also put every able bodied employee on fire watch duty, including contractors and their workers.

Yes, them fires from Ontario sending smoke our way. Got to 78F here today. Air is going to be dryer tomorrow, less of the muggies. Possibly 40's F for the next two nights.

Bad thunderstorm last night but it only dropped .1" of rain. Officially the worst drought since records have been kept. Chance of rain tomorrow but they keep lessening the amount and the % chance. Looking like we will stay below 2" of rain fall May-July, when we would normally see that amount in the first week of May.

Ponds and dug outs are drying up. Swamps, creeks, and small rivers are dry as well. I'm fortunate enough to have 4 drilled wells across the 2 farms so I'm able to spread my water usage out. Others are pumping their wells dry with pond and creek water and having to haul water from the big lake or an artesian well for their animals.
