    Let others know they can also make comments via FB. Otherwise, they may not realize it. Just a suggestion.

    Absolutely. I just got this feature working a few hours ago – later this afternoon I will do an interesting FB post on this feature.

    Thanks, very helpful to plan my week.

    Ugh! Lots of rainy days back to back. But I guess we should count our blessings. Thanks for the updates!

    Sharon: Unusual to see such an extended period of dreary weather with persistent cloud cover and showers in late July. Normal summer should return by Thursday.

  8. Sharon

    Weather looking a little better. At least some sunny days ahead!

  9. dgilh51@gmail.com

    Yes — a few day break in the rain. Have you noticed that we’ve seen few days featuring the normal, popup 30-40% chance of showers. There have been more deluge days and dry ones. That speaks of organized systems in the tropics – not a good sign.

    We definitely do not need a hurricane here!

  11. dgilh51@gmail.com

    Isaias is not a threat here.

    Last week lots of rainy days and this week hot, hot, hot! Let’s keep any hurricanes away! I don’t see any other people commenting here.
    Can you tell if they are using your new website? Just curious.

    Sharon: One nice thing about this week: The humidity will be a bit lower, especially on Wednesday and Thursday. Morning lows down into the upper 60s up at your cabin those days – but hot by afternoon. Yes, this is one of those summers where you get rainy spells, then dry days, and not as many 30-40% chance of scattered afternoon storm days. Years with a lot of hurricanes tend to be that way. I’ve had a few others leave comments.

    Why is it so hot? 78, at the end of November? Crazy.

  15. dgilh51@gmail.com

    Yes. High temps have been running about 8-10 degrees above normal, but that’s not that unusual. Low temps. have been running only 2-4 degrees above normal. The upper air pattern has been largely east-to-west which keeps the cold air well north of us. Expect this pattern for the most part to continue through the winter. Warm temps. and below normal precip. should be the rule.
