  1. Curious what make/model you have. Was looking into getting one.
  2. Goose, I appreciate the thoughts
  3. I know a few of the LI folks on here are thinking about the Jones Beach Air Show this weekend. Really hope we don't get these low level clouds/showers during the 1Pm/2PM time frame Saturday. That's the grand finale with the blue angels or thunder birds (I think thunder birds this year?). Same thing happened last year when a wall of fog crashed into the beach literally as the blue angels were about to show up.
  4. We honeymooned in Kauai and Maui in August '14 and agree, its paradise. It really IS all its cracked up to be.
  5. I thought I remember it being the other way around. Either way, the real rain comes in the mountains in the interior of the islands and the beaches are typically sunny and nice. There is reason its an epic tourist location. Kauai must have one of the tightest rainfall gradients in the world. It goes from 10-20 inches annually on the beaches to 300+ in center of the island. Its only a distance of like 15 miles.
  6. I usually try and plant first weekend of May if possible too. Wasn't able to last year and I'm not doing it this year either. Putting the plants in early just have them sit in raw rainy/cool weather doesn't gain you anything. They respond to the weather and can respond quick once it turns nice. I'll wait until we get closer to the weekend of the 13/14 and see what it looks like at that time.
  7. Even 79/64 at the wantagh mesonet. You can call this a solid June day. Including the morning light show too.
  8. Actually saw this hammock blow off a terrace walking to the subway. I was across the street and didn't even realize it hit someone. Only reason it wasnt worse was becuae it kind of "parachuted" as it came down a bit. Weird thing. http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2017/04/25/pedestrian-struck-injured-by-hammock-that-blew-off-lower-manhattan-roof/
  9. Wish I could get as excited as some on here about today's precip. Raw, rainy days in spring don't do it for me. I guess this is how 'normal' people feel about getting a few inches of snow in the winter.
  10. Three month NWS outlook was posted yesterday. I'm never sure how accurate or useful these are but AN is probably as good a guess as any. NWS has these three month outlooks out for the next year on the climate prediction page. There inst a single panel that predicts anywhere in the US to be BN for any three month period for the entire year. http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/predictions//multi_season/13_seasonal_outlooks/color/churchill.php
  11. Didn't see talk anywhere on this yet- First Atlantic tropical storm of the year has formed. Way out there. Arlene http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/text/refresh/MIATCPAT1+shtml/202031.shtml
  12. Would like to see if we could rival the most consecutive days of 90 plus. Was that the heatwave from 1954? I think it is like 13 or 14 days. I still question that location for Newark. I think the site is on a strip of grass in between 16 lanes of i95 and the EWR Tarmac.
  13. Year round skiing at Tahoe this year? "Erdman says July 4 is a no-brainer. Staying open through August, though, is a bit far-fetched but “conceivable,” he says." https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-04-18/this-year-you-can-ski-all-summer-in-california-s-squaw-valley?cmpid=socialflow-facebook-business&utm_content=business&utm_campaign=socialflow-organic&utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social
  14. Looks like a fashion line where cult leaders would pick up their uniforms.
  15. Was just about to say the same thing. If we do get a warmer and sunnier week things will green up in a hurry. Even though I have allergies, I still love it. Get the Claritin ready..
