  1. Yep! Been in the office so far but just stepped outside and there’s steady rainfall. As of 6:15ish this morning it was just on and off drizzle, so I don’t know how long it’s been raining like this, but I hope we (all of us in this area) get a lot of it.
  2. Are any of the models more reliable than others right now? If I’m remembering correctly, last summer the Euro was more consistently accurate with the heat while other models were undershooting by a few to several degrees. (I know it’s all just guidance and I shouldn’t get my hopes up, but I’m really rooting for some rain here.) Beautiful morning in York county — 63 and clear skies at 7:23 am.
  3. Sounds like they’ll be arriving here shortly, then. I’m about 15 miles SE of Roundtop.
  4. Nothing here in York yet either, and I’m not complaining. They never used to bother me but the past couple years they’ve been getting quite loud. On the upside, I’m glad to see the fireflies have finally been out the past few nights. If I’m not mistaken, they used to show up sometime during the 3rd or 4th week of May, but both this year and last year they had a late start. I read somewhere that the unseasonably cold weather in May delays their usual cycle.
  5. Don’t forget about the white flakes just a couple weeks ago in late April!
  6. Yes, you definitely had it worse than we did here in York! Here's hoping we see enough rain this spring/summer to rectify that.
  7. Delurking to say, I'm glad we're getting some slow, steady rain today. York County didn’t show up on the drought maps last year and there were numerous days where storms were in the forecast, but very little actually made it to my backyard. It became something of a hobby to be outside watching storms as they headed east, just missing us to our north, while my poor lawn was dying. Some parts of York county did fine, but our section of Mt Zion hill was definitely hurting for lack of rain. A lot of homes in this area (including mine) rely on wells, so even mild droughts cause a bit of stress for everyone. I know the snow helped a bit and we’ve also had some rain over the past few weeks, but I don’t think we’ve recovered yet from last year’s deficit. I admit, I'm a Warminsta (sp?) and I love sunshine, but right now if the snow is over for the season, I'm hoping the sunny days will be scattered between lots of steady rain and thunderstorms.
  8. It’s coming down pretty heavily now in east York. Until about 15 minutes ago I was starting to wonder if the whole thing might have shifted far enough north to miss us, but it looks like we’re going to have a decent event here.
  9. I’m a few miles away in east York and it’s the exact same pattern here. Little to nothing all morning and now sleet.
