  1. I was in Wilmington, NC for a few days. Came back today thru Reagan National. Here the flight path.
  2. Stein Stein, everywhere there's Stein. Fail
  3. Where’s this “fog and low cloud burn off”? Figures the weekend is in the toilet sun wise.
  4. I’ve backwashed mine twice in the last few days. Right now it’s almost to the top of the coping again. Can’t keep the pH regulated for shyte. And my salt is down to 2800 ppm. I didn’t add one bag all last season after I opened.
  5. I’ve been off work since Friday. Friday was a decent day here, considering. The last 4 have been a disaster. Figures tomorrow will be sunny and 85. May have to “work from home” tomorrow. Hellava way to run a 4th of July.
  6. Stein, Stein, everywhere there's Stein. Cant you read the signs
  7. Back half of July and most of August wasn't that bad if I remember right. It finally cleared up and we got some decent heat for those of us who like some warm to hot summer weather. But June was terrible, just like this.
  8. Thanks god this disaster of a month is about over. Just awful. Hellava way to run a summer. 2009 PTSD
  9. Not really. There's always been this level of dumb. Its just you didn't know about it because there was no internet. Now these stupid ba$tards have away to seek out each other and communicate.
  10. Me too. The warm season is short enough with out losing June. Now its almost July. Said it before, the older I get, the harder it is to live here weather wise. My retirement house on the intercoastal in Wilmington, NC is looking pretty good.
  11. I'm at 29 AQI right now. Looks like CT gets the brunt today
  12. Yesterday I could actually smell the smoke. I can’t smell much anyway. Years of formalin fumes have fixed the tissue in my nose. But man, yesterday smell like I was sitting next to a fire. And 46 this morning. Jeez I’m getting tired of this.
  13. Same here. Not sure I even got 0.25”. Had some classic sheet drizzle earlier. Not as bad as what I experienced in KFIT last Saturday though.
  14. Crank my 400,000 btu and I’ll have mine to 83 in 2-3 hours. Mines 72 right now with a solar cover on. But I’d just as soon sit bare butt on a fire ant hill than get in 72 degree water. I took a 75 degree shower a couple days ago because the oil pump on the boiler shyte the bed and it damn near killed me. Yea, I hate cold water.
  15. Yup. I was running a fundraiser golf scramble that June. June 1 was a Monday. Course was flooded that morning and it was 46 degrees out here. Tuesday wasn’t any better. Ended up doing it in September. We’ve run that same scramble in early October ever since. Better odds of good weather then than early June. Hast been rained out since.
  16. The sheet drizzle was awesome and that northeast wind just added to the ambience. Athletes wrapped in blankets walking around like zombies.
  17. Didn’t get a chance to post yesterday. Was in KFIT all afternoon. State track and field championships. 48 and sheet drizzle. Just brutal. Times for the sprinters were just awful and the jumpers were terrible. Couldn’t get loose. Never saw so many falls on the hurdles due to wet conditions. Several got hurt. I talked to one of the officials and they thought about moving it to today but thought is would be worse. They didn’t think they would get the nasty temp yesterday and didn’t count on the steady sheet drizzle.
  18. I came through Upton, MA about 7 am dropping off my kid at school. Pingers mixed with the downpour I drove through.
  19. My son runs the 100, 4x100, and long jump. First meet was April 4th. 38 degrees, 20 mph wind and drizzle. Was miserable. I’m at Foley in Worcester right now. It’s 57 but there’s no sun and it’s not what you’d call balmy. Standing here waiting for the javelin to be over so the 2 mile can start is not pleasant.
  20. Unfortunately high school spring sports are in Rectal season. Mid 50's and sheet drizzle to run 5 miles is fine, I guess. But not so much trying to play high school baseball or trying to stay limber to run a 100 m, much less trying to sit out and watch it. Hopefully it turns in 10 days or so.
