    Winter 2019-2020 Discussion

    I'll take that!
  2. Another .1 rainstorm. It's so dry in the woods now, it's sandy and dusty.
  3. Well that's pretty significant.
  4. Well that's a nightmare scenario for pushing water into the NY Bight.
  5. I saw 88 in Middletown CT but otherwise most of CT that I was in was more like 84/85. It felt warmer though.

    Interior NW & NE Burbs 2019

    Actually most of it is somewhat shaded. Some time this winter I'm hoping to be able to take down a few more trees and get the yard opened up some. Kinda like the Central Park site, everything has grown up around the place and needs to be taken down. We got a good start last year and now it's time to finish the job.
  7. Rained just enough that I don't have to water the garden. Yay
  8. It drizzled for a little while, maybe a few hundredths worth. It's breezy, damp and cold. I'm assuming it will drizzle some more as it pulls away and that back line moves through on it's way out. Heckuva way to run a tropical storm.
  9. I was up on the east slope of the Catskills riding in Round Top for a little while this afternoon and it was beautiful up there. We were chasing the sun right up to Rt 23 but once across the river it cleared and the temp jumped almost 10* to a little over 70 and the wind dropped off to a very light breeze. On the ride up the Taconic there were these little mini scuds dropping out of the leading edge of the clouds and dissipating as soon as they cleared the bottom of the cloud deck, it was really cool to watch. Coming home the clouds got continually thicker and the wind kept coming up,over the top in Fahnestock St Park it was blowing pretty good but no rain even down here in Mahopac where I live but there is a good wind blowing. I always enjoy the drama at the edge of tropical storms.

    Feels like fall and it's starting to look like it too. Trees are responding to the cool, dry weather we've been having and the forest is in a very different state than it was just 10 days ago. My garden is definitely in fall mode. Julian if you're going to be down this way let me know, I'd love for you to come get a look at what I have for a garden and how to make it better next year. You are way more knowledgeable about this stuff than me. I just wing it and hope for the best but I'd really like to get more serious and see some real yields for all the effort I put into it and this is the time to get it ready for the next round.

    .2" and a little bit of wind, nothing special at all. I left a bunch of stuff outside and ran out to get a few things done and when I got home they hadn't even soaked through and the piece of styrofoam on the roof of the car didn't blow off. Another dud... Hopefully the cool front is more effective, it's steamy out there now.
  12. 50 miles west and that's a disaster for LI. 1938 redux?

    SNE "Tropical" Season Discussion 2019

    I would think anywhere east of the middle of Long Island ought to do it. It might be fun to hang out up in the Hither Hills area or on the cliffs by Montauk and watch the chaos.
  14. Are stats kept for high minimums? I know there were more warm overnight lows this year than last.
  15. And all my wife and daughters did every time we did something outdoors was complain about how hot it was. I thought it was pretty great! A little humid many days but overall it was a good outdoor summer for me.
