    Being a groundskeeper/horticulturalist in NYC I would have to think there are some pollution issues. Soot ends up on everything here on the UWS. Foliage is often covered in a black coating. I can’t imagine that coating is good for vegetables to be eaten by people.

    Squashes and zucchini in containers, in the Bronx is tuff. They need the most space of pretty much anything (maybe watermelon and pumpkin) light rain now on the UWS.
  3. Patio Question

    Concrete would be overkill and increase the price of the project substantially. Don’t do it.

    The batch of rain to the SW looks pretty solid. If it holds together it’s going to pour later for the southern half of the area

    Over an inch at the wantagh mesonet. Looks like another batch trying to form and move up from south jersey

    It’s a red maple

    Pretty much. All the rain will help my design installations. But all the rain will prevent more work. im curious to see if we can end the streak of rain not making it the coast during the warm season. The last few summers have been brutally dry for the coast

    Half of huge red oak snapped here on campus and is suspended broken over Broadway. The initial wind gust was incredible

    Another factor to consider. The main line looks to arrive in the city earlier then previous events that busted. Earlier = better big time

    That’s what I’m thinking. There isn’t your typical blasting onshore flow. One of the best setups I have seen for western LI. Obviously as you get far enough east there will be overwhelming marine influence. If we can get an organized MCS or ecpecially a derecho damaging winds are likely pretty much area wide.

    I hope that doesn’t jinx it. Pretty rare for NYC to be in enhanced

    I think tomorrow has a pretty good derecho shot. If that’s the case even the coast will get in on it. MCS that organized tend to weaken slowly

    Warm fronts this time of year can be the best chance for severe along the coast.

    The whole complex has a surprisingly good MCS look. Let’s see what happens when it hits the marine layer

    I can see all the lighting from the lirr In queens. Must be especially high.
