  1. Finally got some rain Mon and Tues eve. I had over an inch of rain monday eve in a savage downpour with some impressive downdrafts with a briefly intense cell that popped up in the Syr area. Only about 0.2" last evening as the main frontal passage was weak sauce. I'll take it, much needed. Gorgeous morning, lower humidity for a nice break. Now let's get back to hot AF.
  2. You are likely correct. My upstairs stays warmer, which is not unexpected but I have an attic (Dutch Colonial house). I shutoff and sealed registers in the finished basement as it's always cold down there. Didnt help that much. I was going to install a supplementary fan in the duct serving upstairs but haven't got around to it. I think our problems are either an undersized ACU and/or flow balance out of whack. Would need some pro analysis to really know. Actually, I could figure it out, I'm a power systems engineer but...lazy. And the wife used to just turn up the ac until you needed a sweater downstairs...which makes me think my issue is more of a flow balance.
  3. Pretty much agree. 80s for highs, maybe get to 90 and lower humidity is perfect. Humidity rising this afternoon though. We just had a shower of sorts. Fell apart moving north. Weak sauce. Need a downpour for the garden, hopefully in next few days we get one.
  4. Some rain soon would be a good thing. I've had to start ferrying buckets of water to the garden as the still young plants are really suffering.
  5. I missed this since I have been detuning from the noise. Congrats on the decision, it's certainly understandable. You will be missed here for sure. Best of luck to you and the Frau.
  6. I'll take it. Although some rain for my veggies would be good. This is one hot steamer of an air mass. Dewpoints been mid to upper 60s for days now. This weekend might actually feel "refreshing." Which is one benefit of living up here in summer. As much as I like the heat...not gonna lie, some relief at times feels good.
  7. It is a hassle but it does work. During a "normal" summer i can keep my pool temp upper 70s to low 80s for the most part. I've thought about getting a solar heater but undecided as to where i would place it so i'm still looking around, stuck in analysis paralysis. Not that it will affect us but GFS been trying to gin up a tropical system in the caribbean the past few runs and head it somewhere towards the FL Keys, maybe into the GOM. Early start to the season for sure.
  8. I do that. It's still difficult to maintain above ground pool temp in CNY unless the Summer is a warm/sunny one. Two years ago i barely went in the pool as every time temp got up to mid 70s (my threshold) it would rain and get cloudy for days, dropping it back down in to the 70 degree range. That's happened a couple of Summers.
  9. I have a pool and rely on warm/sunny weather to make/keep it warm. So once the snow stops i'm pretty much rooting for a blast furnace most days (with afternoon T Storms for the garden and lawn).
  10. We had ~2" of overnight snow near Albany, Clifton Park, on May 18 2001. Could have been May 2002. So once every 2 decades or so for upstate lowlands based on very limited sample size. If this continues after dark we could easily see a few inches. Although melting between 6 hour measurements, esp in daylight will really knock totals down. I suspect we may see some inflated numbers with people over measuring. Actually, not sure what the cirrext protocol is when its melting between squalls.
  11. 1" on elevated surface with the last slug of snow. Melting quickly. New round incoming
  12. You know, I was going to expand and clarify but why bother. you are quite unlikable. Seek help.
  13. Fair enough. I havent seen a lot on antibody testing on the Covid Tracking Project but I could've missed something. There's way too much information flow out there the last 3 months, overall.
