  1. ha, I was on the other side of the hill from you on Walker Pond - but moved to Standish for college in 2003.
  2. I looked at the Public Info statement - that observation was from 12/1. Dumb they published a map with that in there - shoulda tossed it. Side note - I grew up in Sturbridge, weird.
  3. 31* and SN- here in South Portland 6.3" measured at 1PM - that's new since 7AM 10.8" for the two-day total
  4. SN+, 26.8* in South Portland. 2.7" new as of 7AM; Two-day total of 4.5". Let's see if we can make some hay this AM
  5. Certainly better than me. In addition to below I heard 5" in OOB ...York County... 1 NNW Ogunquit 7.1 in 0135 AM 12/02 Public 2 NE Kennebunk 2.0 in 1257 AM 12/02 Trained Spotter Sanford 1.0 in 0909 PM 12/01 Public
  6. 1.8" on 0.18 liquid here in South Portland @ 7AM. Currently 27*/19* SN
  7. and i'll know too because i'll be skunked 1.8" overnight
  8. Appreciate the analysis leading up to this event, @dryslot & @OceanStWx. If all goes well tomorrow night I should see a total higher than any one event last winter here in SoPo (7").
  9. they are everywhere up here - we get them just walking around the yard / grass / garden.
  10. A nice 32.4F rain here, which was expected.
  11. That'd be a record gust here if that verifies
  12. I'm not right along the coast (3 mi inland), but fully expecting some + 50mph gusts in the morning.
  13. Never saw grubs, but sometime in Aug I saw bugs in the turf, so assumed chinch bastards. You need to rip a chunk off and look in the soil underneath to determine if it's grub damage. Can't rely on surface obs
  14. 07-08 was my fourth winter in ME, and my first in PWM. I wasn't measuring at that point but I remember it being an awesome winter. >100" in PWM I believe.
  15. We seem to miss out regularly during convection season, while others (mostly to our north and west) do not. I wonder if it's related to our coastal orientation and sea breeze influence? Same thing with Scooter.
  16. today will close out the 3rd driest September on record for PWM with 0.42" - over half of that falling on 9/26.
  17. ^dang 53/41 in South PWM Tough stretch for those who love dews and refuse to uninstall in September
  18. Lava, my lawn is a cornucopia of weeds and bugs, and the back half is in full sun and still doesn't look that bad. I don't know what the issue or solution is, but I doubt pounding pesticides is the answer. Not sure if Milky Spore works on Cinch bugs but maybe give that a shot. Takes a few years to establish and you're soil is probably too cool this year, but it might be worth a shot next year. Either that or till it all and plant perennials or wildflowers. Probably cheaper than the money you'll undoubtedly continue to pour into it.
  19. Exactly what I was looking for, thanks. Dendrite - I'm interested in those graphs/data as well, so thank you. very resourceful site.
  20. What's the website where you can generate the maps I see posted here showing regional temp and precip departures for an (adjustable) timeframe?
  21. In North Deering, it's been training band here for the past hour. Interested to see the totals........
  22. 3.48" precip for July, mostly falling in 3 events (1.01" on the 6th, 0.98 on the 11th, and 1.02" on the 22nd/23rd). I don't keep temp records, but the PWM ASOS is 3.5mi away and had its warmest July on record and warmest month ever on record.
  23. We definitely benefit from the amount of competition up here. Plenty of options here that would make it on their own as #1 in most smaller markets. More options = the price stays low. My favorite beer, Epiphany (Foundation) is $14 and always available at retail and the brewery. If you venture out to Industrial park, be sure to make the rounds at Foundation, Definitive, Austin Street, and Battery Steele. Lone Pine and Liquid Riot are also top-notch.
