6 tornadoes yesterday, 5 of which were in MD.  I believe the longterm average is 10 tornadoes per year in Maryland.

We can't get snow but we can get tornadoes in February. Come severe season we won't be able to get a flash of lightning.

But maybe snow? Why not? It has been super wacky the past two years.

Massive fire on route one in Alexandria section of Fairfax county.  Smoke showing up well on radar.

That was a bit of an unpleasant surprise yesterday.

Looked out in the back yard and LOTS of big branches down.

Since there were workmen next door, the assumption was they had thrown the branches over the fence.

In reality, the workmen were there to repair a fallen ceiling, and the branches had come from the tree of the neighbor back of him (and us).

I presume the strong winds Friday evening did this.

Dead Ash tree? I have had two that I hadn't taken down yet fall in last month. If you have any near your property get them down! They either snap off about 5-10 foot up or completely uproot (I had one of each) once dead over a year. That is my PSA for the day!

Beautiful afternoon. Currently 51 degrees and sitting outside on the patio.  Full sun makes it feel closer to the 60s.  

47 here. Sun feels great though.

Sun angle season is upon us. :D

Sun angle kicking in. My solar panels are producing at the highest rate since early November.

PSA from Captain Obvious:

Which of course makes sense because the sun angle is the same now as it is it during the first few days of November.

Currently the temperature is 49F under sunny skies.

Dewpoint: 24F

Another wet and cloudy/cool day. 'wedge' feel to it. Just hit 40 degrees with a moderate rain falling. Just a hair over .25 in the gauge since 7 am. Another fail from NWS, which has updated forecast to steady rain and a 43 high after a 7 am forecast of 53 and showers in afternoon.
