Yes on the wind part. Sure does dry things out a little too much. Maybe the wind is behind us now.
Sun just came out here!!!
I still have a lot of branches to pick up around here. I have a lot of oak and those trees seem to always drop limbs every time the wind blow.

I have a big old white birch, nothing sheds more than a white birch. My uncle hated them for that reason. White pine cones is another matter. Bang bang bang in the mower deck. :D

52 and light rain here this morning. Supposed to clear up some and go to near 70. Best part is light wind!
I believe in the hereafter, because every time I take two steps into the tool crib to get something I wonder " what did I come in here after"

Been getting spotty downpours the last couple of days.  Cold front moving in and 2" of snow predicted at my cabin project ::) later today.  Up to 16" at Donner Pass.  Crazy weather!

Another great sunny day here, in the 60's and no wind. Going to be in the 70's for the next 3 days and sunny. A bit cooler on the weekend from a passing front Friday night but more sun on Saturday. 60's feels kinda on the warm side when wearing a canvas cruisers vest in that sun. Shirt is wet and needs changed for the drive home each day. :D
Move'n on.

Got close to 70 yesterday so it has warmed UP finially. Hasn't rained in almost 2 weeks now and no rain in the forecast until maybe the weekend. Still waiting on grass to start growing. This will easily be the latest I've ever turned cattle out on pasture.

Is definitely in the 70's today here, no wind, lots of sun to. Lawn mowing begins this weekend. No flies until this afternoon when walking across a black spruce bog, then the midgets appeared in clouds, but not too bothersome. Nothing at the house, but I bet by Saturday they will liven up. :D ;D

Sunny, 82F and NW wind. Hmm, them glaciers sure warmed up some this week. :D

Dry as the dust bowl, fire warnings in Maine and NB. The entire province has a total burn ban on. RH is 16% today.

Two fires out of control now in New Brunswick have 20 firefighters, 4 fire trucks and 3 air tankers fighting them. A power line in Chamcook and also Bunker Hill area.

We are finally getting some heat here.
We are at 102 growing degree days today for the year but our 5 year average on this date is 260 ggd.
The farms around here start haying by May 20 for first cutting .First cutting is very short and yield is 30 percent of normal so far .

Starting out here this morning at 60F, going to be scorching dry with that dry NW wind. It's overcast and a cold front is suppose to roll in, but no rain expected off that. Looks to be dry for another 5 days. Sure never expected it to dry so fast with all the snow, but it hasn't rained since last Friday night.

Got some wood cut'n to do..........

Well at noon the temp was 66F and overcast, now it is 72F and sunny and the NW wind is still with us. Probably be cooler tomorrow. Cut some trail and any wood in the path was cut to firewood length. I think there is a solid cord there. Waiting on the wood buggy to be delivered in the next few days so I can gather it up. Will be back at it in the morning. ;)

Black flies have come to life. ;D

Heats back on. 64 for a high. I was working outside Sunday. Company came and we was outside. I had to get a sweat shirt on while visiting. Keeps the flies away at these temps. Yesterday was kinda cool in the morning. Did warm up around 1pm.
