  1. Awesome looking forecast for the next week or so, a little dry so I'll probably water the lawn in a couple of days to keep it nice and green. That's the plan anyway.
  2. I remember that, I was out here at 12:30 am watching it turn from rain to snow. I think you were up for the festivities as well, and Birds~69 among others. This feels like a longer stretch of cool weather though, and I'm pretty sure we'll pay for it with endless days of humidity like we usually do, lol.
  3. In the forecast discussion by the NWS for later tomorrow, they mention some impressive tropopause folding around 500 MB. Had to look that one up, lol.
  4. Had a warning here, but it was in and out in about 10 minutes. Not too windy, one flash of lightning before it got here, and 0.25" of rain. It did come down pretty hard, I got soaked, lol. I see our high wind watch for later tomorrow has been upgraded to a warning. Hold on to your hats!
  5. Made it to 34F here early this morning. I mowed Tuesday afternoon, shorts and tee shirt. Today is borderline for that attire, especially this morning at 43F currently, lol.
  6. You're probably right but it wasn't too bad to set up, and just in case. Looking forward to 63F tomorrow!
  7. Well we did a light version of last year's tents. Only 2 spots, hoping it's not necessary, but it should help if it gets down to 32F.
  8. Last year was the same date, I posted pics of a wisteria tree covered with frost blankets on April 22nd. Debating if I should do it again, it's just starting to flower. What the heck, lol.
  9. Lol, getting a few snow flakes here. 46F.
  10. Likewise here, the rain came down hard for 5 or 10 minutes, accompanied by the hail for the duration. Had a warning but it wasn't too bad, which I'm okay with.
  11. Getting some thunder and lightning here with a steady rain, 52F. Breeze picked up earlier out of the ENE, and temps dropped a good bit in the last 3 hours.
  12. Just heard a rumble of thunder off to the WSW. And a second one just now.
  13. You'll need to get a tanning bed or something, lol. Getting a little shower here.
  14. Congrats on the trout - grass fed? (reference to Redsky's post).
  15. And tossed in a couple rbis, lol.
  16. Made it to 27F here last night, 28 the night before. Magnolias are toasted - it happens. (We did get a workout Thursday late afternoon trying to cover the white magnolia with a couple of 24ftx60ft frost blankets, but the wind laughed at us). Slowing warming up, 42F currently. Grass looks great, probably will need to mow it this week.
  17. I don't think it's a joke, he either did the math or it was a lucky guess. Meteorological fall actually starts in 153 days. Anyway you guys are the bookends for this subforum weatherwise, lol.
  18. Sorry that happened - glad everyone is okay, physically at least. Hope they catch whoever did it. Sounds like a crime of opportunity, but who knows, for now at least.
  19. That's about what it was here too, no lightning either. Pretty windy, maybe 35 mph?
  20. Under a severe thunderstorm warning here, radar looking decent:
  21. Yeah we got the spotted lantern flies in a big way last year, not good for the walnut trees. Gonna try wrapping tape around the trunk sticky side out once they get started.
  22. A sawzall (reciprocating saw) is the best for working around dirt, with either a woodcutting blade or a branch cutting blade. I've cut out roots through the dirt and all with a battery powered one. I tried it one time with my chainsaw, and that was the last. It's like if it even sniffs the dirt it's instant dullsville. I've used my s10 blazer with a hefty rope tied to the ball on the trailer hitch for pulling. One time I snapped a 3/8" rope and it sounded like an m80. I've used it to shake a large walnut tree one year when we had a bumper crop, had the rope tied off about 30 feet up, and actually felt the back end jump to the left a few inches when I gave it just a bit too gas, lol. Anyway, sounds like fun, lol, good luck and hope your arm is okay!
  23. I'm okay with 60s through April, then 70s in May. I saw a lot of small bugs yesterday and thought of RedSky for some reason. I know he has issues with the stink bugs. I've been wondering if the lack of cold this winter will result in more bugs this year.
  24. 62F here currently. Beautiful day, great for working outside. 3 days in a row with shorts! Grass is starting to darken up, probably about 10 days away from mowing. Got some buds on some bushes and the silver maple, and magnolias and forsythia are getting ready to flower. Saw a couple of butterflies yesterday. Good stuff! Eta - just saw the overnight low Thursday night is forecast to be 28F here. Yikes. Time to think about frost blankets and bamboo poles for the white magnolia....
  25. 1.68" here today - we did need some rain. Eta - the last shaded snow pile went bye bye today.
