RAIN! And more rain

Flow amidst the redbuds
What springs upon this spring to rise these springs?
Huron earth season’s it’s dearth.
Mighty rainbird descends with massive wings.

On the St Joseph today. I’ve always enjoyed paddling among trees that are normally on land. Some interesting currents flowing around obstacles in the river. Good exercise going upstream.

After 2 beautiful days, the monsoon is back and is predicted to be for the next 10 days.

I had just made the above comment when a massive cloud burst hit. For the second time in 33 years , we had water in 3 downstairs rooms.
After an hour of soaking it up , it’s gone.
The rooms all have composite floors, so not too much damage.

No rain here in the north woods today, just fog. First photo taken at my launch site; second on the trip home.


Beautiful Please send me some of that rain.

I always loved “Fogust” in the PNW. People there complained about it, but it muffled sounds and made the surroundings feel isolated. After the typical dry, sunny summer, Fogust came as a relief, and it didn’t last all day.

That low mounded cloud type would form on one end of an island while the leeward end was sunny.

Well…it came. A nice 1.3 inches each of two days. Rain forecasted for the next four days. Grass growing. Oh right and the mildew on the side of the mower shed. …wonderful. (sarcasm intended)

See you have tropical storm off the coast…
That won’t help much.
Good luck…

Just what we need! We’re supposed to see the sun on Sunday.

Wanna trade? Northern Michigan has set records for the past few days, with temps reaching 90F in some spots. Was 86F here at home. Accompanied by nasty high humidity and pop-up T-storms.

Being Michigan, things will change fast as the NWS just issued frost warnings for the weekend. :crazy_face:

NASCAR Cancelled a race in Charlotte because of the rain from the storm…

It’s predicted to move away from us but Charlotte is close.

Ok Rookie we will trade…your 80 something for our 90s. It’s summer in Florida. The afternoon t-storm pattern has started. The grass will soon be one or two cuts a week.

Who schedules these launch times (SpaceX) down here anyway?
(Thur, 3:30pm - scrubbed; next: Sat 3:22pm)
They ought to liftoff in the middle of the night - less chance of storms.
I paddle in the very early hours - rarely get wet.
Especially in the summer, I schedule my long paddles to be complete very early in the afternoon.

The difference is you aren’t trying to rendezvous with a space station in orbit without a lot of manuvering using fuel you haven’t got enough of.

Or…it is marketing.

Some of the past astronats(sp?)have said they usually launched late at night.

We were headed home on 95 one year after visiting my parents in Ft. Pierce and saw a launch. I kept wondering why so many people were parked along the highway untill it lifted off.
Pretty cool.

Those Teslas parked all over look better in the sun.

Frost last night June 7 n Northern Nevada. Six inches of snow in the Sierra. It will be warm in a few days.
