Thur. Jan. 31, 2019 – look over here! Shiny thing!

49F and a bit drier than normal at 85%RH. Supposed to have no rain until later, but we’ll see. It strikes me that the public is being bombarded with the outrage of the day, and one tempest in a teapot … Continue reading

Wed. Jan. 30, 2019 – cold, but dry today

38F and 57%RH this morning and the forecast calls for clear and dry. Which is good. I’m getting curmudgeonly in my late middle age… particularly with words and language. I see standards slipping right in front of me, and I … Continue reading

Tues. Jan. 29, 2019 – sometimes I’m an idiot

39F and wet this am. Got some heavy rain before I fell asleep, and had the power go out briefly. And my office went dark. Main PC and NVR. Which means I’m an idiot. Because I have a UPS sitting … Continue reading

Mon. Jan. 28, 2019 – January almost gone

Cool and damp this am. Didn’t get the batteries changed in my station, so I’m pretty sure 51F is yesterday. It did get nice and warmish, with beautiful clear skies yesterday. I did manage to get a couple of my … Continue reading

Sun. Jan. 27, 2019 – whole body aches

47F and 93%RH sounds about right. Looks sunny out there though. Nice change from yesterday afternoon, which was all cloud cover and gloom. NOAA says early morning rain for us. Wrong again. I just looked at their last three 3 … Continue reading

47F and sunny this am. Yesterday it must have gotten up to 68F and 37%RH as the weather station is stuck there. I think today will be ‘change the batteries’ day for the weather station…. Child number two has a … Continue reading

Fri. Jan. 25, 2019 – banana republic, or justice being served

Cold and damp. Weather station is reporting 63F but there isn’t any way that’s correct. I still need to replace the batteries… Headline today: “Former Trump Advisor Roger Stone Arrested As Part Of Mueller Probe” Over two years. Lawfare. I … Continue reading

Thur. Jan. 24, 2019 – freezing

30F and wet, according to my station. (in half an hour it dropped to 29F) This sucks dead bunnies. I trusted weatherunderground’s forecast and DID NOT cover my citrus. I’m going to be REALLY angry if I lose a tree … Continue reading

Wed. Jan. 23, 2019 – raining

Raining and COLD if the station can be believed. 0.75 inch since midnight, and 39F. Anywhere else I’d be worried about the temp dropping and getting freezing rain. I think I’m going to huddle inside today. No reason to go … Continue reading

Tues. Jan. 22, 2019 – volunteer day

Cool and wet, almost certainly. Posting early as today is the day I volunteer at the kids’ school. Science enrichment for the 4th grade. So I’ll be scrambling to get myself ready as well as everyone else. Once again progressive … Continue reading
