  1. A B S O L U T E L Y! Enjoy them while you can, the triple nasty H's will be here soon (and long) enough.
  2. A few days late, but my numbers for April, 2021. Averaged high temp was 65.0 degrees vs a normal of 66.5 degrees, a -1.5 below normal. Warmest temp was on the 28th with a 86.2 degree reading. Averaged low temp was 39.1 degrees vs a normal of 38.4 degrees, a +0.7 above normal. The coldest temp recorded for month was on the 4th with 21.0 degrees. The overall averaged temp for month was 52.0 degrees vs a normal of 52.5 degrees, a -0.5 below normal. Total rainfall for the month was 4.98 inches vs the normal of 3.30 inches, a +1.68 inches above normal. Wettest day was on the 11th with 2.38 inches falling. There were 11 days with measurable, 3 days with a 'T' and 16 dry days. A trace 'T' of snow was recorded vs the normal of 0.3 inches, a -0.3 inches below normal.

  6. So the classic 'I went to a fight and a hockey game broke out' will be said? I'm gonna edit this to add a fun experience from a game I went to couple years ago. Roanoke (Railyard Dawgs, SPHL) playing Fayetteville in a home/home series. Not sure what happened the night before in Fayetteville, but BEFORE the puck was dropped 3 separate fights started with the lined up players! I think the game started 3 on 3 with 70+ minutes of penalty time before the puck even dropped lol.

  10. So, just got power back here, I had a 66 mph gust on the weather station and have 4 trees down on my property. Two missed the house by 10 feet and are laying in front yard. That was most impressive. Between 2:45- 2:50 pm. All were pulled over with big chunks of root balls, biggest tree brought a 10 foot by 10 foot slab of dirt with it.
  11. Lots of booming here in last 15 minutes
  12. Yep, reminds you that the U G L I E S are on the way......
  13. Just missed a record warm minimum by 0.6 degrees this morning....yay. NOT!
