Early December was great in my hood

2.8" from that storm in mine.  At least the ground stayed white from early November thru early April, and having storms of 3"+ in 7 different months was kinda cool, even in a year with both snowfall and SDDs were BN and it never stayed cold for more than 2-3 days at a time.  (Some would count that last as a plus.  Not me)

This weather is for old ladies in sweaters and thin-blooded men. 

I think of my grandfather (rest in peace) being 85 years old and freezing cold all the time.  The only time he could get warm was sitting on his porch in central NY when it was like 90/70 at SYR.  He’d be legit cold at like 80F if the dew point was in the 40s/50s... just like DIT/Kev. Complaining about “cold evenings” when it’s like 70F outside, acting/dressing like it’s about to snow.

Yes, my mother in law is like that. I have seen her wearing wool socks, heavy stockings, and a shawl wrapped tightly around her in some crazy high temps/dews. I would definitely succumb to heat stroke in the same setup. It seems like if there is any kind of "breeze" hitting her (like from a ceiling fan) she starts to shiver even if the ambient temp is 80+.

Lots of shrubs and small trees have just pretty much died. Even oaks are drooping. Dam you Hadley Cell.

I planted upright phlox like a month ago and they are fried to a crisp... I’m sure they’ll come back next year, but yikes.

It’s up with summer 2015. We have been really dry.

Hey but look on the bright side, it’s always nice and sunny... and then you steal all our QPF in the winter.

I thought 2014 was exceptionally dry, 2016 as well..but if this type of dryness continues through August, we might be making a run at one of the driest summers in recent history (at least in this area). At least some of the morning fog/high dews have kept things moist some of the time lol..

I keep saying I want winter QPF, but recent summers have been so dry and we try to keep a fair share of plantings going in the warm season.  Can’t we just only get rain at night when we sleep? LOL.

That's what we aim for in NNE... but it ain't happening this summer. 

Yea. When I thought about it after, sounds like N VT, N NH or NW ME...in the right years. I could never convince my wife to move up there now or after retirement though so I just have to visit and dream.

Thank God the Bruins are on

I love hockey. Love the Bruins. Played hockey all my life. Planned to watch it start to finish and stocked up on junk food and whiskey. Last about 10 minutes. Just seems weird, idk.

Looks like a few cells really blew up to the east of here!  I'm not far from the water and have been seeing a decent light show for the past 15 minutes or so...
