June 16th
So pretty nice Fathers day,hope all the fathers out there had an easy day and enjoyed their families.

June 15th
Finally spring has returned,beautiful spring day going on,with temps approaching 80,low dewpoints,light breezes.Enjoy this while it lasts more unsettled weather starting late tomorrow.

June 14th,
Several areas have flood warnings up as we received another 1 to 3 inches of rain yesterday and last night into this morning. Thankfully the rain will be moving out in the next few hours and we should start the drying process.Some of the flooding will continue through the weekend on small streams and rivers.

June 13th
Almost to the end of the week,has not been a fun week.But more rain on the way,flood watches have been posted again as a strong storm,more winterlike strengthens and moves south of New England.This same system has been causing all the severe weather in the midwest and now moving to the mid-atlantic states.For us just more heavy rain especially south of the Mass turnpike,but even my area will see around 1 inch depending on the exact track of this system.Looks to be a sunny and quiet weekend.

June 12th
Over an inch and half of rain yesterday,pushing my total to 6.5 inches for the month,with Nor'easter hitting us late tomorrow into Friday,with another inch or more of rain and possible winds.Right now looks like we are setting up for a beautiful on the cool side weekend,and more unsettled weather next week.Currently the pattern wants to keep a trough over the northeast,and it keeps reinforcing the trough,while the heat stays out in the midwest.


June 11th
More heavy rain during the night,another 1.5 inches.Eased off for the moment,but may see more heavy showers this afternoon.And then a coastal storm will bring more wind and rain for late Thursday into Friday morning.Currently almost 6 inches of rain so far this month.I have tomatoe plants in,but the last time we had a wet spring,they didn't do well,all kinds fungus hit the garden,we'll have to see what happens.

June 10th,
After all the rain we had Friday and Friday night,the last thing we need is more rain,but more heavy rain is on its way late today and tonight and then more showers may develope again tomorrow afternoon.Some areas may get over 3 inches.Grounds are already saturated and rivers are pretty high,so flood watches have been posted.Not sure where the heavies rain will fall at this point.
Stanley Cup begins Wednesday night,Chicago and Boston.Going to be fun.

Perfect day here in the east and New England.Upper 70's and a little breeze,keeping very comfortable.
Can't ask for a better day.And after the first half of
this month,think we deserve this

I've received over 8 inches of rain since June started and more than half of that the past week.Some places in Southern new england have received around 11 inches.
This has been a very wet spring since the middle of May,and talks of rain deficits have vanished.

Forecast kind of "busted" here for me NEw. Only 0.33" of rain. Not much else on the horizon for us here in SW CT.--Maybe a couple of more showers, but definitely not the 1-3" they were talking about,even just this morning.

Hi,Mass,been absolutely crazy here this morning.We're going to miss you,but hope you can get all your computer problems straightened out.
I couldn't stay up for that marathon last night and was very disappointed when I watched the news this morning,but its only the first game and these two teams are going to stress both cities out,with that kind of play.

Hi NEw!

I'm tempting fate this am, as my old computer's CPU usuage is high and needs to be fixed. Will probably be offline for the next few weeks till I can straighten this and other computer related problems out.

In the meantime, have a great Father's Day on Sunday and hope the Bruins can regroup, then go on to win the next few playoff games without any further overtimes whatsoever! Last night's game was one lengthy draining dousy!

Thought I'd post these cute reminders here regarding Flag Day tomorrow and Fathers Day on Sunday. Tomorrow's monsoon will be most restrictive for those, around here, wishing to raise their flags in its honor.

Glad you, too, have a relatively new working sump pump and hope it continues to do its job. So far, our basement pump's well remains dry. Hope we can keep it that way throughout!

It was a relief to hear that Jus made out okay during last night's horrific mess in her part of the mid-west. I think Paw Paw, IL and a town in Iowa each got hit with a small tornado that effected minor areas of each. At least, she can now relax and gloat a bit over the 'Hawks initial win in 3-0T!

Take care and hope to be back online again sometime in the near future!

Morning,LT,yeh tough loss,especially I thought they had it under control in the 3rd period.Only the first game,but not sure I can last if this is the kind of games we are going to be seeing.
Yep,more rain,but nothing severe.The good news the expensive trenches and pumps I had put into my cellar to deal with high water levels seem to finally be paying off.I've heard the pumps kicking on,so thats good news.I suspect I'll be hearing those pumps going on right through the weekend with the water level in the ground very high.

Yeah NEw. but at least I think we won't get the violent weather here, just heavy rain. Sorry about the Bruins, but it was a very exciting game. They still can come back.

Hi,Mass, I'm going to start blaming you for these rainy
Fridays when ever you travel.
Although it rains so many
other days, hard to blame you for one day



Come early Friday afternoon, watch out, here I come!
TOOT, TOOT, BEEP, BEEP, SPLASH, SPLASH, ARGH, ARGH! LOL!




Oh, oh, here we go again ...

Areal Flood Watch
Statement as of 10:47 AM EDT on June 12, 2013


... Flood Watch in effect from Thursday morning through Saturday morning...

The National Weather Service in Taunton has issued a

* Flood Watch for portions of northern Connecticut... all of
Massachusetts excluding the cape and the islands... and all of
Rhode Island excluding Block Island

* from Thursday morning through Saturday morning.

* As the ground is quite saturated... forecast total rainfall
amounts of 2 to 4 inches... locally higher in spots... will result
in areas of significant urban and low-lying flooding. In
addition... small streams and creeks already swollen from recent
rains will likely swell again in some cases out of their banks
and above flood stage. Main-Stem rivers may also rise out of
their banks and above flood stage.

* Residents living in flood prone areas and/or along river banks
should be alert and aware of the heavy rain potential and
changing conditions Thursday into Saturday. Motorists during the
Thursday evening and Friday commutes should be prepared for
reduced visibilities with heavy rain... along with the potential
for water to pond or inundate roadways. If encountering flooded
roadways remember... turn around... Don/T drown.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.

We actually did buy Belle a raincoat,but it doesn't fit nice and impedes her walking,so we haven't been using it,but the last couple of weeks,I think Im going to try it again.

Good Afternoon, NEw!

Nice to have a reprieve from all the rain today, but supposedly METS say we could be in for a NorEaster tomorrow through Friday. Darn invasive jet stream again! Wouldn't ya know it, I have to travel yet again down to the Burlington area on Friday afternoon. This will make the second consecutive Friday of miserable traveling weather. I think I'm going to seek an alternative back route home as 93 North has been jamming up from early afternoons to evenings. When adding bad weather to the mix, one becomes a sitting duck in a 20 plus mile long parking lot. UGH!

Hope tonight's start to the Stanley Cup playoffs provides a big win for the Bruins. If they can win over the originally favorited Penguins, then it's quite possible for them to get a handle on the 'Hawks. Get your snacks ready and fingers crossed in-between! LOL!

Glad all is going well with Belle's training sessions! Sounds like she's become increasingly comfortable with allowing her new masters to take charge. It should also make her walks more enjoyable, come summertime, if it remains decent outside. Has the Mrs. purchased a rain slicker for her yet? Might be a good idea to buy Belle a doggie rain-slicker, especially, if these rainy systems keep up. It must take, at least, a towel or two to dry all her soggy fur when wet.

Good Morning, NEw!

Nice to finally have a break from all the rain that's fallen since last evening! Don't know how long this reprieve will last till the next batch arrives later today, but we'll take it despite the lingering chilly and damp now expected through Friday am.

Not to be out-done by Jus's posted Chicago 'Hawks goal tribute below, I'm posting the Bruins' current version (which can also easily double as a foghorn this this week). Hope both the Bruins hockey team and their signature goal song/chant will far outplay over that of the 'Hawks! LOL!



Another terrific Boston tune referencing many of its great (rain or shine) attributes:




The only tune regarding Chicago that I can remember is old and had lyrics proclaiming that it was a "toddling town". LOL! How can a so-called "toddling town" compare with a City that's Boston Strong? LOL!




Anyhoo, let the friendly rhetoric, rivalry, music and big Stanley Cup playoff begin!

So here's my philosophy for when forecasters predict when the rain moves in.So today,they say it will be a dry day,and rain won't move in until around 6 pm,so my thinking is plan on the rain arriving 3-5 hrs sooner then that prediction and sure enough the rain is moving in,not at 5 or 6 pm.



Either that or just look out one's home or office windows before exiting the door! LOL!

Good Morning, NEw!

Guess it's time to get our buckets ready for the heavy rains expected tonight into most of tomorrow. I don't know about our lawns and gardens, etc., but doubt that we're that thirsty for another close two-day deluge!

Well, at least, Wednesday through Friday looks progressively promising with the return to drier skies on Wednesday and sunshine by the end of the week through Father's Day this Sunday! Dads, everywhere, deserve to have sunshine, warmth, blue skies and favorite sport teams win on or by their honored day out of each year! Right?



Congrats to the Bruins on sweeping the Penguins for the NHL Eastern Championship win! Next stop, the Stanley Cup games, versus the Blackhawks, this Weds. night, for hopefully another big triumphant winning series and season!
