    Soupy mess out there today. I definitely need to mow but I also like not being on the brink of heatstroke, so we'll see how far I get on that today. Should be blissful with dews in the 50s and a stiff north breeze when I head up to the fair tomorrow.
  2. Yeah, that's a good observation. I'm a little south of there (just down the street from the deadly plane crash last week, if you read about it), but it's the same story throughout northern Dutchess. Makes me very curious about local variations in foliage color this fall between wet areas and those that have gotten skunked.
  3. Meanwhile, nearly 5" here since Saturday. That can only mean congrats south of 84 this winter.
  4. The storms here have been accompanied by frequent lightning flashes this weekend, but almost no clearly visible bolts. I assume IC lightning is favored vs. CG with marginal lapse rates. Or maybe you just don't see them with the high dews/low LCLs?
  5. These ultra-high PWAT, marginal-instability storm setups are starting to become repetitive. Third day in a row with torrential rain but otherwise mild storms. I'm already over 1" from tonight's line of convection, building on the ~1.5" I received yesterday.

    I'd really appreciate that, thanks! It would be great to get properly informed before I decide how to move forward with it. At some point, the second-hand anecdotes reach a limit in their usefulness... Pretty crazy photo of the flooding down there. NC 12 must spend more time underwater than any other highway in the world. It's incredible.

    What an awful setup that is.

    In my case you can see the whole thing from the road

    I've inquired with a few people, and the consensus has been that when waterways are involved (as opposed to closed bodies of water on your own property), it's a long and expensive process to get DEC approval/oversight. I haven't gotten anything like an official quote, but as best I can tell the whole project would be on the order of six figures. The pond definitely adds value to the property, but I doubt I'd recoup a hundred stacks or more come selling time.

    My pond is in bad shape this year, but the current weather has little to do with it. The inflow stream got all messed up in the October '05 flooding, and it's been depositing silt into the pond ever since. Then the Tax Day flood started the dam breaking up, with that process nearing its completion. Sad to see after being a thriving fishing hole for at least a century.

    Ponds grow algae in the summer, lakes stay clear.

    Patio heaters on for the second night in a row. It's coming.
  13. 49.1F for a low this morning

    Congrats Rob and best wishes! I understand our friend @chietanen is also being wed tomorrow. Weather folks sure know how to pick a date.

    It's fun hearing how rapidly the narrative shifted to "summer's almost over, better savor it" at some point over the last week. Just like a switch. On a related note, upper 40s are a possibility for some on Sunday morning. Epic yardwork day if you don't mind drowning in dew.
