  1. It was still 90F with a dew point of 75F in Minneapolis as of 9:50pm. Crazy stuff.

    2nd summer in a row here with severe drought. Plants and some trees that aren’t getting supplemental water are showing signs of stress. MCS out in western Minnesota is giving me a little hope this evening.

    LOT afternoon afd again mentioned increasing concern about heading toward a flash drought.  I don't know the last time that I saw such persistence about flagging that kind of thing at this lead time.  That is multiple afds in a row.

    MSP has been mentioning a flash drought developing in numerous AFDs over the past 10 days. We’ve fallen 0.70” below average year to date and over 2” below average for June.

    $600 in coolant last week and still don't know if the leak was repaired. :axe:  Might pack up and head down to see the boy at Grace and LSD for a few days.

    Ouch. We are looking at a few thousand in repairs, but the previous owners didn’t disclose a known issue so we might be getting a new system paid for by them. 

    Staying on topic, high of 97 here today. 

  4. Going up to Lutsen MN this upcoming weekend for some late April skiing. (We downhill ski into May most years in Northeast Minnesota) There is still a very solid snowpack up there. Looks like for the second year in a row my timing will be poor. Cold rain Saturday with a stiff east wind off Superior.
