I don't know about everyone else but I'm loving this cooler spring weather up here in Wisconsin. I have been able to get a lot more outside work done on my property because of not having to stop to wipe off the sweat and take a break to drink lemonade or just call it quits early in the day. Another perk is I usually switch to solid state radios when the hot weather arrives because its already too hot in my second story radio room and running boatanchor radios just adds to the misery. So, keep it cool mother nature.

Yea has been mostly cooler here in Ohio, the downside is rain and tornadoes.

It still hasn't been higher than low 70's around here. Not good for growing crops, but they'll catch up somewhere along the line. I have yet to turn on the air conditioning in the house or the shop. Sun is shining brightly and the thermometer outside says 70 on the mark. It's 64 in the house and no air conditioning running. It's just staying cool from overnight with the windows closed. Wife controls the temperature inside.
There has been so much rain that the weeds out in the woods are over waist high. Just as deep as the snow out there was last winter. Makes it difficult to get firewood for next winter, which will be coming up shortly.

With this extended period of comfortable working temps I got the ambition to accomplish a task 10-15 years in the making. Go around the house and garage and gather up all the full and partial sets and misc boxes of drill bits and get them separated and put back in their cases or holders. I knew I had a lot but because they were spread around all over the place I didn't realize how many. I've gone through about 200 so far. I'm almost done. That doesn't include all the specialty bits. Thats another few dozen. All done in the comfort of a pleasant 67 degree day with a gentle breeze blowing past the workbench in the garage.

yes, in the middle of the state as well

I can't recall seeing more than 2 days where the temps were 80 or above.

of the 20 days in june so far, it has rained 18. it is dark, overcast, dank, and dreary.

the sun rarely shines and it is barely 70 degrees.

It has rained almost every day for the past three weeks. Only two days that didn't rain at least a little.

On the news this morning they indicated it's rained 120 days this year in Metro Detroit so far this year.


I'm making an ark with some of the old junker radio cabinets I have...

We had a few scorchers here in SoCal last week, but since then the temps have been below normal, so the coolness seems to be across the country.

Yes, and the Blackflies are horrible this year. Literally clouds of them, I can't remember them being this bad for at least 20 years. The winter was bad as well, with lots of freezing rain and cold cycles, there are dead deer all over the place. (starvation).

So THAT'S where they all went! I was wondering about those nasty flies. Thanks for taking them in!

Southern California is cooler than has been typical for the 30 years I have been here, with substantial rain during the previously bone-dry Summer.

Sun activity varies. Look how warm it was during the Middle Ages, when Greenland was given that name. I would not be surprised to see a cooking trend which lasts for decades, even centuries

We hit 30 inches of rain, since Friday the 14th through Thursday the 20th. We were without electricity from Saturday until Monday afternoon. We were thankful for a cool weekend and week. We have had several nights in the 50s and one in the 40s. Fortunately for us, but not the victims, the Category 2 tornadoes were 15 miles west of us, but we did lose 4 trees, including a big oak, plus it moved a few tons of gravel down our driveway. We have been on an island several times in the past week.

It was a wet spring before this and we are only a mile from the eastern edge of the Corps of Engineers floodable property for Lake Monroe, There were 4 ways off the hill but one is still closed from the normal spring flood, one hasn't been dry for a week, our closest comes and goes, and the last is a foot higher but can't be reached because the road to it is in the lake for now.

A neighbor lost about 2,000 feet of wood fence in the early spring from flooding. It had been there for decades. They recently replaced it and work was completed on the 12th. This is the part left standing:

This is the road that goes past the fence, that you can barely make out in the background. There is a white mailbox behind and to the left of the large tree in the foreground. The water is three feet high at that point.
