A quick 0.69 in 30 minutes with the shower that developed overhead.

This was a bit more than a shower, I got 1.4 in less than an hour. I had to pick my kid up from work at the peak and the driving was "interesting". Strangely I think it would have been worse if the ground was as dry as it was a month ago, it came down so fast that it all would have run off before being absorbed and it would have carried all sorts of loose dirt and debris.

The dew is finally below 60 again here in the swamps of Campbell Hall/Montgomery, whichever one prefers. 

I mostly consider orange county the land of the swamp people….

Good evening Irish. I remember seeing this individual many years ago near the Gowanus canal. That was the time when a gas mask was preferred attire when crossing the canal bridges on ninth street and on Hamilton Avenue. Now, post clean up, it’s slated to become another housing development for the very affluent. Stay well, as always …

Are you sure? I thought it was the mucky zone between the Belt Pkwy, the dump and the Canarsie pool.

Good evening gravity. You may be right but the unforgettable Gowanus Canal aroma is not likely to be matched. In the early 70’s the water was tested for organisms … typhoid, dysentery, cholera and tuberculosis were found. In recent years the water tested positive for gonorrhea. Some bright soul posted a sign “ must wear rubbers before entering the water.” . A government clean up is underway and the canal is showing growing signs of recovery. Stay well as always ….

If it could be like this 25 days a month I'd be ok with it. 

Watched Top Gun in Imax this morning, now just sitting on the deck enjoying some cold beers and attempting to beat my kids in kan jam lol.  Definitely a top 10 day of the year.

I didn’t know the Wallkill River ran down to Nyack. This definitely looks like something that came upstream from there.  ;)

Wait, it's starting to make sense now. It came out of the (big) river near Indian Point and headed upstream... 

good afternoon Rob, hudson, gravity. On a concerned note …. Has anyone notified the Keebler Company? As always …..
