    Heavy heavy lawn thread 2019

    I went to buy a 50 lb bag of 19-19-19 at the farm supply store the other day, and it felt like I was buying contraband fresh off the boat from Colombia. Had to ask for it by name, go in the back room, and promise the guy I wans't using it on my lawn before he would sell it to me... apparently it's illegal here to broadcast ferts containing phosphorous on lawns. Looked into it a little further and the exception was if you're starting a new lawn from scratch, or can prove to the state of NY via repeated soil tests that you're below a certain threshold of P. Pretty intense.

    You know what, you're right. I completely forgot about that. I'll never understand folks who are reduced to getting their kicks that way.

    .79" for the event now as rain tapers off. Quite the soggy day after that brief period of warmth and sunshine mid-morning. On a side note, anyone else getting a kick out of the drama over on the NE subforum?

    4/14 - 4/15 Heavy Rain and Squall Line Thread

    There's a little kink in the line that should move overhead immently with strong gusts. Not much lightning here, but muggy enough to feel like a bona fide summer storm environment.

    Loving the soundtrack of peepers and gentle rainfall.
  6. The current temp gradient is 42F in the NE corner of my town and 59F in the SW corner (about 8 miles distant). Crazy.
  7. Nonsense. The dudes in Home Depot with Oakleys on the backs of their heads have been wearing cargo shorts all winter long. 65/58. Soupy, but a little less torched than anticipated up here.
  8. That's the spirit!
  9. I measured on top of my BBQ grill. My measuring board has already been repurposed for gardening uses, as is customary by early, so no help there. Normally I'd DQ an elevated metal surface as a viable measuring spot, but seeing as it snowed hard enough to stick to roofs and even roadway shoulders in the daytime in April, I don't consider it hugely exaggerated in this case.
  10. Well, I can add another 0.4" to my season snow total... Back to mostly rain now.
  11. Hmm, it's all snow at home and actually coming down pretty heavily. Grass is starting to turn white, despite a temp of 35F.
  12. Light snow/sleet mix in the Mid-Hudson.

    Yeah, it got intense for a while there. WNW flow behind the monster offshore low peaked at the perfect time of day for mixing down most efficiently. It's super dry again as well - lots of spots around 60 with dews in the low-teens. Not hard to see the fire risk there.

    I see we're doing the wind thing again this year.

    Could be the last fair and mild day for quite a while. What's the occasion?
