Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
Yup, Gnu, since my last post we've had about a foot of rain, solving the fire problem, and temperatures that seesaw from 55F to 90F. Currently, we're in harmony with the mother country, with New English weather of 55F and rain on and off for the past 5 days. The season is nevertheless advanced, with strawberry picking starting Saturday, about a week early. Roses are in full bloom or going by, something that usually happens for Fathers' Day (June 17). Hay crops must be ready to cut, but the farmers don't have a clear shot at 3 days of fair weather for about another week (by then it'll be 90 again, I suppose).

The freeze I worried so about apparently wasn't so bad as feared. The local orchard is celebrating it's 165th anniversary this month (in the same family) so I guess they knew where the trees should go. I do have a decent fruitset on the cherry tree, but the apple has gone biennial with only a few this year after a heavy crop last year (that got snowed on last Halloween).
