  1. Gotta love the stabilizing influence of large bodies of water. All it takes when you get here is a lack of an easterly component to the wind and as things heat up it's like popcorn as the air rises the storms form. Yup 18 days out of 20 so far this month it's rained at some point. Can I complain now?

    I had friends in Tahoe skiing nearly knee deep yesterday and this morning it was snowing and sticking above 8k in Arizona. By early afternoon they had enough that people were up skiing on north faces that were still holding snow from the winter and it looks good, like late March good.

    Alright so all it's going to take this year is a tropical system or two to annihilate last years record rainfall totals. I wonder if last year also had a record number of days with measurable rainfall, I bet we're on track to break whatever the old record is. I'm at 18 of 20 days this month and last month was 22 of 30, I didn't count the winter months but should have and I don't feel like going back to do the research now.
  4. Yup we gout doused a little while ago and there were a few rumbles as it passed through, now it's just a steady moderate rain. I'm bummed now BUT it looks like the next few days will be nice.
  5. Hey I have an idea, lets try a day without rain. T-storms incoming after a bunch of rain overnight into the early morning hours.

    I got some pretty serious rain a few times tonight. The most recent batch was hardcore enough that it woke me up with thunder and lightning. It looks like the earlier round was more significant north of here. There's another round incoming that looks like another soaker.

    I haven't ridden out there at all yet but will at least a few times this year now that I have a few solid accounts out that way. The Fingerlakes area has always intrigued me so I'm looking forward to it. I have a thing with my wife next weekend but don't remember which day but yeah, let me know when you're riding and if I can I'll meet up. Yup this bike is silly good fun, I was giggling the whole time once I got used to the extra weight.
  8. Really? I think that you don't understand what it's like to be on the east side of the lower Taconics up here. There's often a much more significant marine influence than places south and east of me. It takes a lot to get the continental influence over the Catskills, Hudson Highlands and Taconics to the east side. Microclimates are an amazing thing, I grew up down there so I know a lot more about the weather on the Island than you think.
  9. Wow that sux. It's sparkly clear up here and all the way down into the city. I saw 79 uptown and 76 in Chelsea this afternoon. I had to run in for a thing my wife had to do and was surprised it got that warm along the water on the west side.
  10. High 70's to low 80's are where I'd have it if it was my choice. Kind of why I want to move to the lower Keys when it's finally time to get out of NY. Unfortunately there are things going on down south now that would preclude me from wanting to be there and VT is out of the question too as the place falls apart and self destructs.

    I drove right past the school while it was going on to visit the bike shop up the hill from the campus. Wouldn't it have been funny if we had run into each other there rather than on the mt bike trails here? When are we going to ride? I finally got my e-mtb so can ride again and complete the heart attack recovery on my own terms.

    Boy it was nice to get out in the woods today. Soil moisture is super high but there was surprisingly little mud after all the rain we've had the last 45 days.

    I made a run out Rt 17 (I can't seem to call it I86 yet) to Corning yesterday and saw some super heavy rain in the morning then temps over 80 in Binghamton in the afternoon. On the way home there was an absolutely awesome rainbow filling my windshield for about an hour as I was following the rain through Orange County to the Bear Mountain Bridge. Looks like we may end up with a dry weekend for a change

    Did anybody see how much snow they're going to get out west? Geez... I saw low 70's today, did anybody get to 75?
