Observations and occasional comments about San Diego county weather - nature - and the world around us.

Is there really another chance for rain from a system sliding down from the PNW? All the forecasts show it, but the percentages are low as of today (Sunday). I'll take it, though - if it can make it!
Weather here has been very nice lately, plenty of sun, highs in the 80s - as long as you live or happen to be 20 miles from the coastline. It has been quite foggy there and struggling to make the upper 60s. The lower desert is plenty warm, Borrego set a record yesterday of 103 and it is the same today, per WU's reporting station.
Glad BC is getting a good population of Rufus hummers hanging out. I rarely see them now, as they just pass through and don't stay here. That 3 feeder line has been well crossed in my yard, this year I began keeping a log of sugar purchases. Since January - over 200 lbs! Methinks my calculator must be broken :)
After about a month and 2 weeks since the first Hooded Oriole sighting this year, the first fledgling was sighted yesterday. Their antics in the backyard make the weekends that much more enjoyable.
I will have to move on to the next bee remedy, the cucumber peels seemed to have no effect here. The bees just used them as a foot hold to get a better position on the feeders. I think I'll try calpoppy's 'oil on the feeder' next.
