Quite the storms yesterday here! The first batch that went through dropped the hail in the pic above. Probably not the smartest thing to do, but when I saw it bouncing all over the yard I just had to run out and grab some. Kinda hurt getting hit with it. Lots of debris all over the yard to clean up, but no trees down. 3 day total for rain since about midnight Sunday is just over 6 and a half inches. Seems like that’s about how much rain we’ve had all year!

Even though you’ve been talking about fall for a month now, it’s not going to feel close to fall weather until at least mid September at the earliest. Might as well enjoy summer?

This week just goes to show how fast a weather pattern can change. We have gone from very dry to very we//t. Here at my house (reports are not broken down by dates but by when I empty the rain gauge) 8/26 2.28″ 8/27 1.51″ 8/29 2.17″ for a total so far this week of 6.06″ here in my yard.

We’ve only seen 3 below average days the entire month. We’ve now had 4 straight warm months in a row, and it’s looking like 2018 will be our third warm year in a row. It looks like the heat hangs on for at least another 10 days.

And WOOD was 100% WRONG with their 90 degree predictions for GR during your so called heat wave! What a joke! Hype and spin!
