    Speaking of planting trees, I have a young red maple, 8 years old I think, that still hasn't leafed out but there are multiple shoots coming from the trunk so its not dead but either stunned or in distress. I'm not sure whats going on but really hope it leafs out soon, it was rather healthy last year, from what I could tell, with lots of growth.

    Nice. I always had a manual rain gauge with the Davis for the reasons mention but it was always one that you can get for a few bucks at department stores. That's better than nothing but I wish I got the Stratus much earlier but I can't go back, better late than never I suppose.

    Tis the season, at least with my experience. Seeds/flowers from the trees like to get into my Davis and if it’s not that then it the damn spiders making webs. I have to check the Davis on a regular basis in the warmer months but the good news is that the aggravation got me to get the Stratus a few years ago and I haven't looked back, I get accurate liquid equivalent with frozen precipitation too.

    Lots of lightning with yesterday evenings storm and the one overnight. Woke up to a extremely bright flash with huge clap of thunder, my guess is the cell tower on the hill here got hit again. The sides of the house are currently washed clean of pollen. With the way it was pouring I figured I picked up at least an inch...yeah, no. .36 in both the Davis and Stratus.

    72 for me yesterday
  8. Yep, a day that I will never forget. The feeling of coming home to that is something that I'd rather not have to live through again.

    Was there annual seed mixed in with perennial? I've seen that happen before.
  11. Ok, it’s early and the caffeine hasn’t kicked in yet but isn’t there a typo in the graphic? Is it 40 months or 100 months?
