  1. I saved a dozen or so hailstones in my freezer. Send me a couple Gs to help repair my car dents and cracks in my home siding and I'll throw them at your windows as hard as I can. It's a win-win for both of us.
  2. As one who was stuck in the car being bombed by teacup sized hail with nowhere to hide I'd say consider yourself very lucky that Monday was a miss. My car is covered in dents and the trees were shredded. Who wants that?
  3. Get a load of these, bouncing off my car at 50mph.
  4. Holy shit I'm stuck in my car with ****ing huge hail. One piece was easily the size of a small apple. Luckily I drove my shitty car.
  5. I just removed all my moth pupae from cold storage last weekend. Time to get busy. Regalis should start eclosing in 3wks.
  6. We had a run of years in the mid 2010s which really hot and drought summers. In fact it caused me to tear out most of my lawn and reforest. Now the biggest threat is snapping branches due to heavy rain, not drought. That and 15" paste bombs in January. But if the drought years ever come back I'll be ready with my native plantings.
  7. It's almost true! But I'll be the first one back here bellyaching about my plants once we have a other drought year.
  8. Solid storms coming through. I approve.
  9. How does it rain so much here in every season but winter? Since 2018 it's been so wet every warm season. If we could translate it to some snow that would be cool but no, it's just rainy every spring/summer. Really sick of it. Makes years like 2012 seem like some sort of mythical unicorn.
  10. What a shitty day. Must be a weekend, seems like that's the pattern we always get. Good during the week and shitty during the weekend.
  11. Technically he's a cavapoodle but it seems like he's mostly poodle based on his legs length and curly fur. So yup, seems like there is such a thing. Your dog basically looks like a larger version of Benson.
  12. Looks like we ended up with 2.5" total here. Randomly there are a ton of river birch leaves down here. Not sure why.
  13. Stradivarius here we come. What a loss.
  14. What a travesty. This weekend is a complete waste. At my age I figure I've got only 720 summer weekends left before I die. I can't afford to be wasting them like this.
  15. Yeah it's seriously mid May and I'm still running the wood stove. Benson don't care. Almost 2" rain so far. Wind is picking up.
  16. Maunder Minimum redux confirmed .
  17. Sort of seems like it might not be a washout now. NPZ drought conditions confirmed.
  18. Get out of here with that 6" blob over Calvert and Anne Arundel. We better not have yet another rainforest summer.
  19. How was 2014/2015 winter?
  20. It's over. Summer, that is...
  21. Man the temp outside today sucks. 53 and windy. I ended up with 2.5" total from the event yesterday.
  22. Today takes lead for shittiest weather day of 2022 so far. 46F and heavy rain - 2.0" so far today.
  23. We need rain so I'll allow it. I'm planting my peppers and tomatoes outside this week so there better not be a freeze.
  24. ALEET ALEET!!! Hummingbirds have arrived today!
