Can anyone tell me if the Sun still exists? Maybe you guys down in Florida?

Don, we had sun. and 63 degrees, yesterday. Second "normal" temperature day, this month. Most days were 10 to 15 degrees below normal. No more normal highs forecast for the rest of the month, and more rain!

cold and high winds again here ---got probably 2 to 3 inches of rain over the last 4 days-----they show more coming in a couple days. our local river is up just a little above average, so most of the rain did soak in and not run off.

Seems like May is following the same track that April took. :shock:

Stellar day, upper 70’s, clear blue sky and a breeze. Yesterday was a little cooler but quite nice.

Zagray Spring Show would have been fantastic if it hadn’t been cancelled.

Snow and a low of 25 forecast for Friday night. Where is that global warming when you need it?

After a sunny weekend, in the 70's, we're back to the 50's, and more rain, later in the week. 2 above normal temp., days, last month, and maybe we had our 2 above normal days, for this month. Either that, or it will be 90's in a week. Haven't seen that elusive Global Warming, maybe our reduced emissions , caused by the virus economic slowdown, chased it away.

What happened to spring?

Beats me. I can't figure out if I should put my winter clothing away. I still have parkas, medium weight jackets, and light weight jackets hanging on the coat rack. One day it's very hot. Day later very cold.

Soil temperature is currently in the mid 50's. Couple days ago the soil temperature was in the mid 60's.

Several outdoor painting and a roofing project. I need several days with the temperature in the low 70's, low humidity, no rain in the forecast. Doesn't appear that is going to happen for a while.

But, I am catching moles. Suckers are tearing up my and neighbor's yard.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Today was a high of 32F, windy with rain and snow showers all day. I'm tired of this @&$%. We had better weather in March.

Feb and March were above normal, most days. We had 2 above normal days in April, and 32, so far, in May. Most days were 10 degrees below normal! Lot of rain, too.
