  1. Temps/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    So true! My front patio and walkway was taken out and we are having pavers put down. We need a nice stretch of weather. This project is taking way longer than expected because of the wet weather.
  2. 9/17-9/18 Remnants Of Florence Observations

    Had a downpour that dropped .47" in about 8 minutes. 1.09" total here since yesterday.
  3. Temps/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    Finished with 3.18" yesterday evening and overnight. Near Rutgers in CNJ got hit hard last night. Pics this morning from my old town Piscataway looked similar to after Irene went by flooding wise. Thankfully that missed my area mostly overnight after the evening rains here.

    Got raked here. 2.66" and still raining. majority came in a one hour period.

    Oh very nice, good luck! Hopefully wherever you move to has a nice fence!
  6. Lawn/Garden/Golf Thread

    I'm with you. Had a large pine removed in late July that was in the middle of my back yard. Am itching to seed the area (and my wife is nagging me). But I'm waiting a bit too. I did one small 3x3 area where another tree was taken down and that came in nicely (it was in a shaded area so that helped).
  7. Summer Bu-Bye 8/27-8/30 Heat Wave Obs

    96.6 here.
  8. 8/17-8/19 Taking Forever Cold Front To Clear Area Obs

    My brother said he is getting bombed in this.
  9. Temperature/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    Cell just dropped a fast .50" overhead. Yesterday my brother in Kutztown area got 4" of rain on the dot. I only got .44" here yesterday.
  10. Wildlife

    I'm in Branchburg NJ between Flemington and Somerville. I would say the area is fairly suburban, but there are many farms around too.
  11. Wildlife

    I have a flying squirrel living in a birdhouse
  12. Temperature/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    Storms fizzled yesterday before they reached here. I had 3 minutes of drizzle.
  13. Lawn/Garden/Golf Thread

    Only one of the last 5 years that I went to the outer banks were the flies bad. That one year I was in Salvo and was the last house in the development next to lush vegetation. All the other years in Duck or Corolla it was never a problem.

    At my work, there are hundreds of these. Those things are massive. I've had wasp nests in the ground 2 out of the last 3 years. 1 last year at my current house and 2 at my old house 3 years ago. Had a pest company come 3 years ago to clear one and I cleared the other with soapy water. Last year a pest company came and they didn't clear it. At night, I poured a cup of gasoline in the nest and that did the job. It was in a woody area next to my lawn and pool.
  15. 1.02" with tonight's storms with a lot of lightning and thunder.
  16. Temperature/Obs/Boring Weather Discussion

    Just picked up .82" in about 25 minutes. .94" on the day so far.
  17. Actually no, the heaviest was about 2 miles west of me. I just had light rain. But after 10pm last night I was in this little line that dumped some good rains.
  18. I'm probably about 5 miles from you and have a total of 3.74, so we are pretty close in our totals since Saturday.
  19. There is a USGS site about 1.5 miles from me in Readington, and my rain total is about 1.5" more than that one since Saturday. It is bizarre. I'm usually very close
  20. .99" today, 2.63" total since Saturday
