  1. Wildlife

    According to the Interwebs, that's the caterpillar or larval form of the White-marked Tussock Moth. A good description is in this link: https://www.insectidentification.org/insect-description.asp?identification=White-Marked-Tussock-Moth as well as many other web sites. Do note that this critter has chemical defenses that may cause skin irritation or itching, particularly in little kids. The adult moth is one of these:
  2. Any arm's-length guesstimate on when (if) the rain reaches New England? I'll be in Western CT for the weekend, and outdoors every day. Thanks.

    Holy cats -- the moonlight is bright tonight! The backyard is lit like a floodlight. Spectacular!
  4. 8/7 Soaking rain, more flooding?

    1.0" here. Rain was often constant but rarely heavy.

    Interesting to watch the storms pop up on radar ... and then grow bigger with no directional motion. They just seem to sit in place. The one just above Baltimore has been brewing for close to an hour without going anywhere.
  7. Glorioski! Light rain here started just now. No flash, no boom...just water, straight down. Lawn is loving it. Late edit: Lasted about 6 minutes. Not enough to measure.
  8. First wave missed us, high and away -- another well-done Nothing Burger for SePA. Still holding hope for the storms now in the Ohio Valley for later tonight here. We'll see.

  10. 7/6-7/7 Heavy Rain/ embedded T-storms OBS

    Two day total here: 17mm / 0.66 in. Surprisingly low for the periods of steady pouring rain we had.

    Spent most of the morning working outside pruning bushes, pulling weeds etc. Got to see some amazing clouds as cells formed or moved through. No rain here, but heard a distant rumble or two.

    Yep, they seem to be breeding in the central part of the state. Also it's interesting to see them moving (generally) NW to SE. Not sure if the first one will get this area or not.
  13. The "Official" what are you drinking thread

    Just back from a very tone-y cocktail reception and party. Organizers had a full compliment of wines from Thorn Hill vineyards...new to me but with a vineyard in Lancaster area and a larger facility in Napa, Calif. I can highly vouch for both their merlot and the "Volcanic Rock" cabernet savignon. If you like the big reds, look these up; they're well worth a purchase. I didn't try any of the whites but saw that they were very popular as well.

    Preach it, Brother! I couldn't agree more. We didn't get a lot of that gorgeous Spring weather we so richly deserve(d).
