  1. Not sure what the criteria are for naming storms in the UK, but we were on the fringes of Storm Hector in the Peak District of England. Almost no rain here, but winds up to 60 or 70 mph on the moors. Fortunately there are very few trees to worry about.
  2. Just slightly better than these.
  3. 79/72 in the swamp at OWD! The mosquitoes will be out for blood. Rode my bike home from the 128 station in Westwood, and had to stop for a minute to put on my helmet and backpack . . . had swarms of mosquitoes on both legs; had to be at least a dozen on each leg. Miserable!!!
  4. Heading to England on the 7th for 11 days! Hope next week's forecasted weather doesn't follow me across the pond.

    May 15 2018 Severe Threat SNE

    Top of Blue Hill in Milton, MA. Just off Route 128 and about a 20 minute hike to the top. Don't know if things will hold together that far east, but if they do you have great views in all directions.
  6. 93/55 at OWD . . . the swamp thing lives. Mosquitoes were already out in force this morning waiting for the train at 128.
  7. 91 at OWD. The mosquitoes will be partying in the swamp tonight.
  8. Liverpool's defense has definitely improved with Virgil, but you still always expect to see them screw up somehow. I actually like Man City's defenders, but they also seem to manage to screw up big time in stretches. Stones looked tremendous until he got hurt back in November, then looked like crap when he returned. City still have the fewest goals allowed, but I guess that is what 75% possession will do for you. Looking forward to watching City vs Swansea on Sunday; I don't think Guardiola will allow them to let up even thought they've wrapped up the League. Could score a lot of goals now that the pressure is off. I do think Liverpool will be a serious contender next year unless Salah is lured away.

    Went for the Manchester Derby hoping to see City wrap up the Premier League at the match. What a letdown in the second half of that match . . . and horrible refereeing. Also saw the second leg vs Liverpool. Wasn't expecting City to win, but it could have been game on if they hadn't ruled that second goal offside. Do I recall correctly that you are a Liverpool fan? Good luck in the semis against Roma . . . calling it the Boston Derby! Well at least City clinched this past weekend thanks to Man U!

    England is stealing our spring!!! Was in Manchester a little over a week ago - mostly 40s and 50s with clouds, rain and drizzle. English seasons in seasons. Enjoy London!

    Will opened the door a crack, Jerry barged in, and then a bunch of us old-timers followed him!

    Remember August 75 well. It was between my junior and senior years at URI, and as usual I worked summers at my father's package store in Riverside, RI. Big store with a big cooler, and by closing time I think the only cold beer we had left was crap that no one ever bought . . . but that night they bought it. Store had very high ceilings so it was always comfy with a nice cross breeze when the side doors were open. That was the only day I ever remember that it was unbearable inside. After closing at 10, went over to the Lum's (remember them?) in Seekonk and drank cold schooners until the wee hours. I seem to recall that places were allowed to stay open later than normal. Next day (back when package stores were closed on Sundays) headed down to Scarborough Beach and baked; not as hot as Saturday, but still brutal. The good ole days.

    Mentioned this to my wife as we were watching. Made no sense considering the headwinds. Final rain total for my house in Randolph was 3.02. Some of those afternoon downpours were insane, but at least we had very little wind for once!
