We had 2.67 inches of rain from yesterdays system which brings us to over 5 inches for the month of June in Otsego. Now we will have a couple days to dry out though temps will be slightly below normal today is will be pleasant with lots of sun.
I will be replacing 80 feet of 20+ year old cedar split rail fence today – I put the original fence up after we built our home here, it is looking a bit raggity and the corner posts on the driveway have been backed into a few times over the years. Looks to be a great day to be working outside.
With the wet weather this year everything made of wood has a coating of moss on it. Moss is growing in the shady spots around the yard. There has also been lots of toad stools and small mushrooms growing in bunches around the yard.
The CPC has put out their July guess for next month which of course is a chance of below normal temperatures (38%). Our highest temperatures peak mid month in July before they start their slow downward trend as the days get shorter. To me this would mean a more pleasant summer with less use of the air conditioners.
I am thinking we will be hard pressed to see many 90° days this year though 80° plus is not out of the question as we will see next week. Normal temps for July are in the low 80s and I am sure we will see quite a few more through the summer months.
I haven’t installed my kitchen air conditioner yet which cools most of the house – we do have a small unit in out bedroom as I sleep better when it is cooler and less humid. This is the latest I have installed the kitchen unit.
Tomorrow will be another pleasant day then the next system will move in for Sunday and Monday bringing with it the threat of storms and heavy rain (which we don’t need).
