Looks like a nice forecast for working in the woods. Might be a bit sweaty tomorrow, but through the 4th I should have some nice work days.

Not too bad yesterday, high 80's and a bit humid. Low 90's today and less humid than yesterday.

Gonna get a bit warm tomorrow, mid 90's and more humid.

Sunday maybe 100 and humid.

Supposed to stay in the 90's until next Friday.

Glad I had the A/C tuned up this week.

It's summer in the city.


Fierce 'heat dome' to bring scorching temperatures in excess of 100F across central and eastern US into the weekend with 18 states issuing advisories to stay inside

  • Dangerous 'heat domes' are expected to cover much of the US over the weekend and into next week, spanning from Arizona to Maine
  • Up to 18 states have already issued heat advisories ahead of the July 4 holiday
  • Cooling stations have been requested for urban cities like St. Louis, Chicago and Detroit
  • Officials have advised those celebrating Independence Day Wednesday to stay hydrated as the heat wave is expected to hang around until Thursday

Yeah, and the breeze off Puget Sound is always a nice cool breeze — the water temp stays about the same (50° ± 5°) all year round.

The storms that hit Iowa re-configured into Central Kentucky yesterday afternoon. Two heavy squaw lines came through Central Kentucky. One around 5:00pm and another around 9:30pm.
100,000+ were without power according to LG&E - Kentucky Utilities last night and this afternoon (7/21) still 40,000 still out in Lexington.
Fortunately I am on Bluegrass RECC and my power stayed and remained on.
My home is on the border between the two power companies. My side of the road has power. Those on the other side were dark late last night, and this after noon homes and a local shopping center were still dark w/ LexPD directing traffic at intersections.
Same line went through Georgia over night and morning and going into Tallahassee, Florida just a few hours ago.

Outside of that it has been a wonderful 24 hours.

I've spent some time on that trail.
In my (much) younger years.
When it wasn't packed with so damn many people.

Well, DAY 2.5 and according to the news 17,000 people still do not have power in Lexington, Ky. itself. No information on the outlying Central Kentucky area.
Driving around I saw a cop car using cables from his engine into a elecrical box to keep power to the lights at a four way intersection.
First time I ever saw that.

Oddly wet in Wyoming. Rains just about everyday in the evening when thunderstorms break out. This place should be bitching about fires by now but it’s still pretty green out there. I’d call it a little cooler than normal but according to average temps we are where we should be. This indicates to me that the decade I’ve been here has been warmer than normal. My biggest gripe about the area is sub freezing highs during the winter. Hoping this summer doesn’t portend a cold winter.

Every winter in WY is cold!
Was in Sheridan on a ranch few years back one weekend it snowed 30+ inches.
Hell no.

I was at a dude ranch for a wedding October 6th of ‘13, if I remember right. It’s up above Sheridan. We got 30 inches and the wedding was ruined. Got home from the wedding and the top was out of one of my trees. I hate weddings, especially my own.

Been pretty hot and humid here the past month. Around 100 in Philly today. Supposed to be in the high 70s Saturday. Can't wait.

70 million melt in surprise heatwave: Record highs bring sweaty start to US Open and forecasters warn it'll feel hotter than 100 in 11 states tomorrow

  • A total of 11 states are under heat watches, advisories, or warnings, spanning from Arkansas to Maine
  • In New York City, where the US Open kicked off on Monday, players and spectators will endure blistering hot and humid weather
  • Photos show players covered in sweat on the court and fans wiping away the sweat in the stands
  • Parts of Missouri are listed as under an excessive heat warning
  • An excessive heat watch has been issued for Hartford, Connecticut, and Boston, where heat indices could reach anywhere between 100 and 105
  • A cold front continues to move east, leading to severe weather in the Midwest
  • Between Iowa and Michigan, damaging winds, hail and an isolated tornado are the most likely threats
  • The likeliest concerns between Kansas and Michigan include damaging winds, though hail and a few tornadoes are possible in this area

Oh, it happened alright, I did not take pictures this time, but I do have some old pictures of huge wood piles. I burn about 20 ton every winter, give or take depending on how bad the winter is. I feed the wood into an outdoor wood boiler, heats my home plus my son's home through the colder months. Usually start it up in November and let it out sometime in March. LP gas furnaces carry us through the milder months, then some times we'll get days we need both the furnace and the AC, it's Ohio - wait 5 minutes.
