June 20th and 21st
I put two days here since I will be off tomorrow.
With the start of summer we see summer weather move into our area.It turned out that spring became very wet.Although summer starts out dry it turns very unsettled next week as a front approaches the area,and around tue or wed we could see some sever weather.We'll have to wait and see.

June 19th
Finally our wet pattern is changing.First we have to go through a cooler period for the end of this week,then a gradual warmer and more humid summerlike pattern takes over into next week.There will be chances of afternoon shwrs/thunderstorms,but these will be hit or miss,nothing like what we've had most of this month.

June 18th
Another round of storms today,but should not be as bad as yesterday.Very heavy line came through late afternoon with torrential downpours.I received .78 inches.Would not be surprised if some of the storms this afternoon drop heavy rains and a couple could reach close to severe level.After today,it looks to be beautiful weather the rest of the week and it looks like we finally get into a summery pattern starting this weekend.

June 17th
So we start the week off with possible severe weather.Models indicate that instability could be very high this afternoon,so everyone should stay alert for some rough weather developing.First in the west early to mid afternoon,quickly progressing east.
Winds and heavy rain are the greatest threat.Tomorrow,if we get enough sun we may have another round of severe storms as a front hangs around the area,before moving east tomorrow night.

Hi,Mass,
My absence is due to computer problems.My work laptop suddnenly started crashing yesterday afternoon.
It settled down late yesterday,but then was unable to stay up this morning when I booted up.So right now Im working on a loaner machine,while they try to repair my laptop.Its kind of like driving a truck.Everything is so different.
Anyway,I'm here.I will be off tomorrow for a long weekend.So I hope you have a nice weekend and enjoy this great weather.I plan on going to the beach tomorrow,doubt I'make into the water which is still at 60 degrees.
It was a tragic death for James Gandolfini.He became a household name from the sapranos.Whats even sadder is that they just had a new baby this past October.

Good Afternoon, NEw!

Well, it's Thursday afternoon and we have just less than 12 hours to go before summer officially arrives at 1:04 am this coming am! I'm sure many will be happy to put this treacherous spring season behind them!

Unfortunately, last night's Bruins and Red Sox losses made for more dispiriting springtime events, but hope each team will kick off the summer season with joint wins. Lately, it's become an odd coincidence that whenever the Red Sox lose a game played on the same day during the Bruins playoffs, the Bruins ends up losing as well. Strange sports mojo there!

Hope your morning, early afternoon absence from the blogs is due to being busy at work and not ill health! May this sunny warm initial summer weekend help to put things right again!

P.S. So sad and such a shock about the sudden death of 51 yr old actor, James Gandolfini! His phenomenal legendary portrayal of Tony Soprano (1999-2007) will long be remembered as one of his finest! In recent years, he was also active in bringing attention to our wounded or dismembered U.S. servicemen via a past HBO documentary and with his close association with related military organizations. He'll be sorely missed by many!

At least, there are a few Alaskan moose around that know how to make the most of their unprecedented heatwave!

Hi,Mass,good to hear from you and able to get around all your computer woes.
Yeh,quite the excitement grilling in the storm the other day.We like our ribs welldone,not the cook.

You want some heat?Go to Alaska.

Alaska, well known for its long and brutal winters, is now in the grips of a historic heat wave.

As an unusually strong and very warm ridge of high pressure is parked in the upper atmosphere above Alaska, at least five cities broke all-time record highs Monday:

* Talkeetna, 75 miles north of Anchorage, reached 96 degrees. Just a day earlier, it had tied its all-time record high of 91, also set June 14, 1969 and June 26, 1953. The 96-degree high was hotter than any town in the entire state of Florida on Monday.

* McGrath hit 94 degrees, crushing its all-time record of 90 set June 15, 1969 and just tied on Sunday. A daily record high of 91 degrees for June 18 was set on Tuesday. McGrath is deep in the interior of southwest Alaska, 215 miles northwest of Anchorage.

* Cordova hit 90 degrees, breaking its record of 89 set July 16, 1995. Cordova is on the coast 145 miles east of Anchorage.

* Valdez touched 90 degrees as well, erasing its record of 87 set June 25-26, 1953. Valdez is on an arm of Prince William Sound, 120 miles east of Anchorage.

Hi NEw!

I'm able to get online today, but am sticking with web or blogsites that don't freeze me up until I can afford to get my computer fixed or buy a new one.

Hubby and I have been so lucky, thus far, with all the recent storms. Whew! Seems much of the damaging stuff has remained either due North of us into Southern New Hampshire, West in Lowell or South towards the Middlesex, Suffolk or Norfolk counties. In any event, hope that summer will bring a much needed reprieve from such a horrific spring!

Glad your wife escaped harm, the other day or so, while grilling outdoors, with umbrella in hand, during that early evening t'storm! Gives new meaning to the phrase, foods grilled and prepared lightning fast! Yikes! LOL!

Thankfully, the remainder of our weather week looks reasonably decent as we enter the home stretch to summer's official arrival on Friday.
Looks like more heat and humidity will be arriving over the weekend with a potential for a t'storm late Sunday afternoon... or that's what was mentioned on last night's weather forecast. I haven't had the chance to check into it this am, but will enjoy this and other warm, sunny, dry days until the next storm arrives.

May you and your wife have a pleasant Hump Day and safe remainder to your work week/weekend!

So the Bruins shutout the Blackhawks last night.Really has been an amazing run,shutting down high powered offenses,first Pittsburgh,and now so far Chicago.
But not going to get too confident.Chicago is a very good team and certainly in the playoffs has a history coming back when most have counted them out.
