July 22nd,
As the saying goes all good things must come to an end.So back physically,but the mind is a little slow to come off vacation mode.The good news is It was a very good vacation,the bad news is,it was only one week.I need to take two weeks in a row to truly relax.
Vacation couldn't have been timed better as the heatwave lasted all week.We had a couple of showers in the evening the first two nights,and that was it.
Lots of beach time,lots of eating,**too much**,lots of sun,but not too much,and Belle did great.No problems.

July 23rd
So the weather pattern changed from excessive heat to a cooler and wetter pattern.This morning lots of heavy showers around and very humid as a warm front is slowly moving north,another chance of showers this afternoon as a cold front approaches.Looks like an unsettled cooler period ahead into next week,so some badly needed rain is forecast.

July 24th
Nearly all of July has had high dewpoints upper 60's to low 70's,unusual for it to last so long without an occasional canadian cool front to dry us out,but today a cold front moves through the areas dropping dewpoints into the 50's tonight into tomorrow.The fly in the ointment is the front stalls around cape code or just offshore and a small wave will move up along the front tomorrow.The big question will be how far north this rain gets,right now SE Mass and cape cod and the islands definitely will get showery.It will be cool ocean breeze tomorrow keeping eastern sections in low 70's with not much sun.

July 25th
For us here in eastern new england were in for a cool wet couple of days,clearing out nicely for the weekend.Almost call this a nor'easter,with breezes conditions out of the northeast and some rain possibly heavy at times for eastern portions and SE areas of Mass. and RI.

Yeh,radar doesn't look good.The thought that just SE New England would get wet is gone,as some heavy rain is moving north,and even the western parts which were suppose to stay dry are going to get heavy rain.

The weather map below already shows Northeastern Connecticut and the Providence, RI region getting hammered again! At this rate, these poor New England states look to dissolve after being deluged by so many other serious storms and floods in recent weeks!

Hope we can miraculously escape from this mess, but doesn't look too promising!

In reference to TS Dorian way out in the central atlantic,it continues to speed along wnw.Its still up in the air where this is going,right now the Bahamas and Florida seem to be at high risk,but just as likely it will spin out to sea.New England seems pretty safe with the current and projected pattern that will be over us come next week.But as with all tropical systems,with it still way out there,it is something to watch closely.

Good Morning, NEw!

I'm loving this wonderful fall-like air that's temporarily come our way! It's quite a vast change from a week ago, and certainly helps for a sounder, more comfortable night's sleep. Nevertheless, I sure don't want the summer season to end too quickly, as winter seems to return way too soon and grip us all the way through spring!

After such a hot humid month,suddenly around 60 and cloudy morning,seems strange.Actually it feels nice.Unfortunately the cool weather comes with rain as the day goes on.

Ahh,Rob,a softy,of course he would love little bunnies,and they do run in cycles,there are enough predators out there that tend to cut down the population before they get too out of control.
Something scared the heck out of my cat which is an outdoor cat and the night before we got home from vacation,our daughter had left her out that night,and he didn't return the next morning,and even after we got home.Then suddenly around 6 pm he showed up at our door,and hasn't left the house since.There were two bitelike marks on the side of his head,so something tried to grab him.He does not want to leave the house.

Sorry if I gave the wrong impression Mass.
I like bunnies just fine, just noting that they tend to come in cycles.

And yes, you are quite punny! Glad you're getting some nicer weather for a while. You folks have really had a roller-coaster of a year.

Hi again!

So, Rob's not a fan of bunny wabbits huh? LOL!

Well, at least, there are a few of us true nature lovers left who enjoy those smaller furry scenes found in our yards or nearby areas. As for those larger types that sometimes make their way down here, I prefer only my weather to be more bearable! LOL!

OUR TEMPS AND DEWPOINTS HAVE FINALLY BECOME DOWNRIGHT BEARABLE! Pun intended! LOL!!

Not too many baby bunnies right now. They increase in numbers a few times a year, then the hawks and owls show up for a while.

No more bunnies.

Dewpoint is on its way down. At 64 right now,headed for low 50's tonight for dewpoints,mid to upper 50's for temps,that is going to feel so nice.

Hi,Mass,yup,much needed break from the humidity.Don't think we're done with heat,but hopefully no long heatwaves like last week.No 90's in sight.It was suppose to be pretty warm today,before the front comes through and cools us and drops the dewpoints.
Belle goes crazy with all the bunnies.
She would love to chase them.

Hi NEw!

Maybe it's just me, but earlier it felt a tad hot and steamy outside while having to drive around on errands. Currently, the our temps are between 84F and 88F degrees, but the lower dewpoints are making it bearable enough to remain with just fans while in our home. Our A/C deserves a much needed rest and so do we! LOL! Looking forward to the better forecast for the remainder of the week! So tired of all the endlessly hot icky stickies! Hope that the worst of summer's heat/humidity is finally over and the remaining two-thirds will be far safer and comfortable. Yup, it's definitely "Time For A Cool Change!"





Good idea to be taking a floating vacation day on Friday. Hope a three-day weekend provides you with a much needed pick-me-up and the time to scout for more neighborhood bunnies. We've got a few wild rabbits that occasionally graze in our back yard as well. Fun to watch nature at its best!

Our rabbit population has exploded in our neighborhood.When I walk I see anywhere from 10 to 20 rabbits,small and large during my walk.A few weeks ago it wasn't uncommon to see several baby rabbits in various yards.I guess the coyotes are around much these days.

Hi,Jus,yep,good vacation.
I got a few more days off coming,starting with this Friday.Figure I need a shorter week when I come back from vacation.
Yep,sounds like we can turn off the A/C and open windows starting tonight.Hoping the rain will stay south of us.for tomorrow and friday.

Hey, could you pass the rain to the left please? Thanks ;)
Glad you all cooled down a bit. Windows open here, too with the drier air. You'll enjoy this weather if it comes your way.

Vacation sounded wonderful! Really glad you had beach weather. Nothing worse than being by the beach and not able to enjoy it due to the weather.

Happy Hump Day! Back to the grind...

We now have a new TS Dorian way out in the atlantic.
It was named by the Navy,but not yet by NHC,that will be coming later.
Still a long ways out there,probably won't be threatening the Antilles until late Sunday,and probably will pass north of the Antilles.Will have to watch this through the weekend to see how the models forecast this.

Been quiet in the tropics,except for 98L way out there,but I can't help feeling the quiet is not going to last much longer.
Pattern in the US seems to be changing and I think things will change in the tropics. Pattern change makes us kind of vulnerable now along the east coast.

Morning, NEw!

It's safe to say our streets are more than a bit waterlogged after our local DPW workers opened up our nearby fire hydrant for many overnight hours before this morning's monsoon arrived. Thankfully, we survived last night's plumbing inconveniences and hubby was told by a crew member that this water project could either end by tonight or well before week's end! Yeah!

Boy, this am's New England weather map looks quite saturated, especially, in those already vulnerable regions of Central VT, NH and ME! Some of these mid-sections have already received extensive damage resulting from severe floods that were caused by many other recent storms. The NH Governor has already had to put in for federal assistance to repair those seriously damaged roads or infrastructure affected in Central NH. Today's additional heavy rains could put some of these most vulnerable locations right over the edge!

For now, I'm so glad that my area has miraculously remained either above water or virtually intact. Tomorrow, Wednesday, looks hotter and more humid again before cooler air returns Thursday along with more threats of sporadic t'storms. Hope all this wild and intense weather will finally tame itself down by August! July's been exhausting!

Mass,
We leave her crated when we are out of the house,couldn't imagine what kind of trouble she would get into without supervision.This little girl is constantly prowling for trouble.
We would see any furry evidence since she doesn't shed.
Yes the baby watch is over,now they'll all be waiting to see what they name the little guy.(((Yawn)))

Hi NEw!

Sounds like you're going to have to install a large strip of comfy leather cowhide inside Belle's bed to tear her away from your leather sofa! LOL! Yup, once you give a dog permission to climb up onto regular sofas or beds, they immediately become hooked and impossible to re-train; especially, if she has full run of your home while both of you work. Just keep looking for signs of her furry calling card before sitting down in the livingroom or going to bed!

Well, the suspense of the royal baby is over!Princess Kate gave birth to a healthy 8 lb 6 oz boy or prince at 11:24 am our time today! Now the parents must rest up to figure out his first and many middle names! LOL!

No,its never long enough,but at least I had a vacation.
Little side story from the vacation,Belle did well,but we also let her up on a soft sofa that they had there,didn't think she would hurt it,but she loved it and started getting use to falling asleep on it.
Well,now that she's back home,she's not allowed on our leather couch,but wife just called and she's caught Belle up on the couch twice today,so she thinks its ok now.

First day back from vacation is always a the longest day.Weatherwise,not a bad day,low to mid 80's,but dewpoint is still pretty high.Probably won't be any relief from the humidity until late Wednesday.

Hi,Mass,
It is a shock to the system when the clock goes off in the morning. The good news is that the boss is out the next two days,so I don't have to contend with him and I get settled in and catch up without a nagging boss.

Hi NEw!

Just checking in to see if your vacation week and weather was enjoyable and not too stifling. So glad that we're now experiencing an appreciable cool down from weeks of oppressive heat and humidity!

Unfortunately, my town has decided to use this particular week to work on the water pipes and water distribution, etc. in our street. This means no available water, 9:00 pm to 5:00 am, this Mon. - Fri. It's good that they're addressing some of its interior infrastructure problems, but not so for those of its older citizens who must use the bathroom during the course of the night. LOL! All this week hubby and I must remember to man our pre-filled water buckets and pails, etc. before leaving the bathroom in the middle of the night. Hey, what's life, these days, without unexpected inconveniences??? LOL!


Hi again, NEw!

I posted earlier on your previous blog entry, as I wasn't sure when you would finally find the time to log in this morning.

Glad everything went well while the three of you vacationed down there! Today must feel like such an abrupt end after a full week of R & R! Hope the work day/week ahead doesn't present too much of a challenge or grind while continuing to adjust!

So the heatwave is over,just in time for the back to work schedule.Unsettled week ahead as the weather pattern has changed and series of fronts will be moving through the area.Tonight a warm front will move north and then get hung up over our area and some heavy showers will be aligning themselves along this front.First farther west tonight and then over the whole area tomorrow,before a cold front moves through on Wednesday and cools and dries us off that last half of the week.May be an unsettled weekend with the approach of another cold front.
