  1. I was starting to think we were going to enter drought conditions...dodged a bullet I think...
  2. I was, and it is...lol. But they have a Walmart, and a big plant (Kaytee) where I picked up bird seed.
  3. Per the USGS site (I'm not home yet) approximately 1.90" for yesterday in Tamaqua...
  4. I'm in Wisconsin right now, but it looks like another 1.40" or so at my house per the USGS gauge. What a crazy wet year. I'm pushing 65 inches so far and there's still just shy of two months to go.
  5. Heading to Chicago from Lancaster and it was 77 in the Laurels this afternoon. Hit rain at the 13 mile marker on the PA Turnpike, and by the time I got past Youngstown it was down to 48.
  6. Cool! I kinda liked Houston. Boy was it wet down there, though. I walked in the grass at the elementary school and it was oozing water around my shoes.
  7. I know. But hey, we need the rain. It hasn't rained in what? Two days? Things are starting to dry out...
  8. Tonight I find myself spending the night at the Bloomsbury TA truckstop in New Jersey. The irony of this is that seven years ago today I spent the night at this very same truckstop. The next day we got our largest October snowfall ever. (October 29th)...
  9. It can assure that it won't be me...lol. I just had a glorious 4 day run south to Florida. It was 90+ degrees for three of them... Sure. Next time we have a normal April with no snowstorms...
  10. 58.74" in my bucket for the year so far. Should be quite easy to top 60 inches, and if the pattern holds, perhaps 65 inches by Dec 31st.
  11. Went to my grandson's fall baseball game tonight, and between the wind and the damp, raw temperature, I damn near froze...yuk.
  12. I'm fine with the mid 80's. The humidity can go away, though. Today is too cold for me. I need a jacket or a hoodie...
  13. Outside of a rogue sprinkle or shower it looks like 2.69" is going to be my event final total.
  14. Can you imagine PLAYING football in that??? On to the local weather. Rain is falling once again, and we are now up to 2.46" for the event which is in the ballpark of what "some" of the models were pointing out. Considering the flood warnings and advisories, I suspect some got more, but still, I was kind of expecting about an inch and a half, so we did ok for a change...
  15. Well, it's starting to look like the eastern part of CTP's zones will get the shaft and end up with just another miserable light rain day from what's left of Florence. The heaviest axis of precipitation appears to be in far west central and the Pittsburgh zones...
  16. I think I'm just going to keep my mouth shut on this one...
  17. Yeah. It was feast or famine, but mostly famine. I had one four day work week, and the rest were two or three. Can't earn a living that way. Relying on the general public to book charters is risky business. Hauling freight has some slow times, bit is still more consistent. Now for some weather to keep on topic. Looking at my CTP forecast, Sunday appears to be the only nice day for awhile as clouds and showers return next Monday for most of next week.
  18. I knew you guys were. How could you not resist considering how much I complain? As for me, I'm feeling much better. Still sore sometimes, but my overall health feels much better. Who knew how bad an overactive thyroid could make you feel? I sure didn't. I'm sleeping better, I have a crazy appetite right now, and I feel less tired and more energetic.
  19. What we miss on is the exciting rains and events. Since the rainy season started on July 21st. many areas have had out and out deluges. We, on the other hand, were mostly on the moderate side. Duration, and not intensity is what got my location to where it is. I'd rather an intense deluge than a long, drawn out, dismal event.
