Thunderstorms Continue

By: lasvegasguy, 1:07 AM GMT on September 10, 2013

Seems we are still not done with the rain. July and August had quite a bit of rain (for us anyway) and September is following suit. As I'm sitting here typing away I can hear thunder and the constant drip of rainwater outside my window.

If this keeps up, I shudder to think of what spring will be like. The last time we had a lot of rain, the amount of weeds and other allergens that popped up were astronomical.

Unseasonable Hot in June

Long Summer Ahead?

It seems we may be in for a really long summer this year. The last few years we were spoiled with nice weather through most of June. Temperatures didn't hit over a 100 degrees for the most part until July last year. This year we may see over 100 degrees constantly this month through the end of September. Hopefully I wrong.

Crazy April Weather

By: lasvegasguy, 7:53 PM GMT on April 27, 2012

It looks like it is going to be a hot year, but then again maybe not. So far this month the temperature hit over 100 degrees on my back patio. But today the weather outside is in the low 70s with a chance of rain.I love April weather in the desert! Time to start planting and getting the yard spruced up after a dry winter and fall.
