I love mornings such as these. I get up early (with the chickens and birds) brew some coffee and put on some classical or old jazz and enjoy the peace. Retirement is grand – I can do what I want when I want to (with the exception of this site which I update religiously at the break of dawn). It is currently 52° which is the lowest temp we have seen in several weeks.
Yesterday was as good as it gets for summer weather (as far as I am concerned). I took a walk in the woods in back of my house to the Kalamazoo river. They continue with environmental work upstream just past the M89 bridge. This is the second year they have been digging up soil along the banks and the muck out of the river. They have removed a fall and several bridge pylons from the old bridge which went across the river pre 1950s. I want to get photos but the public isn’t allowed in the work zone. It appears once they are done there will be public access to go fishing along the banks.
We have another nice day in-store with plenty of sunshine and low dew points. Friday will will see the moisture moving in from the south raising the temps and dew points once again. We will see several chances for rain from tomorrow through mid week next week but most of the time it will be dry. The CPC continues to guess we will have above normal temps and rain over the next two weeks and tropical storm development in the eastern Pacific and the Atlantic is near nil over the same period.
