  1. Likely it was. I got 0.88" during the overnight/early morning hours...
  2. Yeah, it's been a pretty "meh" event for my location so far.

    Taken a couple weeks ago on PA309 south of Tamaqua...
  5. What I bolded in your quote is what I'm afraid of.

  7. It might just be an anomaly in the Tamaqua/Hazleton area, but it just seems like it's been cooler. Can't argue with those stats, though.
  8. At this point I wonder if we'll even have a summer (at least like the ones I remember from the past)??? This wash, rinse, repeat of the western ridge/eastern trough is getting old rather quickly. Does or can the pattern break down, or is summer just going to be miserable with a warm/hot day here and there followed by days of cool clouds and showers?

    Thanks. I did hit the yard with fertilizer over the weekend, expecting a bit of rain to wash it in, but all we got was a few sprinkles. Go figure...lol

    Red thread was my thinking as well, but to the naked eye, the threading is more grey than red.

    Second pic, different location in the yard...

    At first I thought the dog went where she wasn't supposed to, but it looks more disease-like than a urine problem. Do you know what it might be?
  13. Memorial Day weekend weather

    When was the last time a summer holiday weekend was rain free?
  14. Maybe it was the consistency (smaller temperature swings) that I remember, as that chart clearly shows it's warmer now than then.
  15. I don't know, but I seem to remember as a teenager, we'd get low to mid 90's true heat waves, that (at least to me) seemed to last a week of more. Perhaps it's because back then I lived in Bethlehem and it was a bit warmer than Tamaqua, but since I moved back from Arizona, it seems as if we can only muster one or two days over 90 before it cools off. Also the swings seem greater (low 90's to mid 70's as opposed to low/mid 90's to low 80's).
