We go hit with a hellatious storm this afternoon.  Power blinked -- enough to send my computer, TV (all FIOS) into catatonic stage followed by recovery/reboot mode.  After the recent tragedy across the street, I headed downstairs in my little house.  Thought about encamping under the wrought iron spiral stairs (strong, right?  like standing in a doorway?), but If one of these big trees around here fell, it might be harder extricating me from tangle of iron.  Amazing what goes through your mind after a tragic incident hits close to home.  *shivers*

 

@LaDolceVita, I started picking off ticks back in March, so yes, it promises to be a healthy season for them.  Funny how immune they are to any kind of climate change.  I used to use Repel 100, but deet can be invasive including melting certain plastics and rubbers (imagine what it does to skin?), but it worked and I put up with the inconveniences, secondary to little insects sucking my blood and causing incessant itching for weeks.   But I've since discovered picaridin.  Safe to spray on clothes and yes! skin, too and works just as well, if not better, and no ucky, icky sticky feeling.

 

Everyone, stay safe.  Such tragedies unfolding in OK and MO.

Hi, All,

Have had 2 great days weatherwise but today is going to be crazy. We've already had a few showers and sun...temp is 68 right now, headed to 80's. Bad thing is the wild forecast for storms with wind, lightning, hail and possible tornadoes. I am off to see a play, Dial M for Murder, at the historic Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope, PA. Of course the storms are supposed to begin while we are in the theater, so driving home alone will be iffy. At least it's a matinee and not at night. Keeping my fingers crossed that I can dodge the worst or that the storms take another path. HA! I'll let you know.

Have a weather-good day! N.

Good morning folks.  We are enjoying the low 90s for the next week or so with temps 69-70 at night.  Anything above 70 is sheer misery because the house & the outdoors dot not cool off to give that freshness in the early morning that I really like.  The homestead location is staying below 70 at night except for 1 day next week.  We often do get miserable weather by Memorial Day although sometimes we manage to get through June w/o hitting the 90s and that is lovely.  It is not going to be a nice summer the way it is starting out.  Ticks are abundant.  Have found 3 on myself but none on dogs.  Weird.

It’s morning - y’all

 

49* and sunshine we may hope, temps in the 60’s later, and NO rain until tonight.

 

Need to feed the pup, and give her a walk/stagger, pure expresso day upcoming.

 

Buckle up looks like severe weather is coming for most all this year, climate change anyone.

 

Planting fields are still mud up here. So much for early corn.

I’m late at 76* a first for the season, inhaled my first black fly of the 2-week season.

 

Might actually stop burning wood in another week. Waiting impatiently for Friday while off-loading some toys.

 

@LaDolceVita 

 

Understand bulk pickup do to a 2-year stint in Charlestown and a big-ish town of 10,000 pop. Down the road.

 

Up here it’s about the same bit for bulk, enlist strong bodies and haul to dump or transfer station.

 

Problem with one mans trash is another’s treasure, have scored some real treasures up here.

 

Time to charge batteries and re-treat my clothes (Permethrine) with flies come ticks, and the start of Heartgard, etc for Chell.

Good afternoon to everyone on the Front Porch this Monday afternoon! Our morning started out around 50, cloudy and some wind. We had a good turn out for league golf considering the weather. My final score turned out to be better than I thought it would be. You never know! Looking at rain for the next few days. 

Hoping everyone has a great week. 

As shown below our mother Cardinal has been feeding her newborn babies which has been very hard to get a picture of.

No one in my neck of the woods has heard of bulk day.  Really.  People w/ large items living on acreage will either let the item sit or take it to a landfill eventually.  People not living on acreage, well they cannot let stuff sit on their property so they they dump it illegally.  Most of this dumping has stopped since our county has become populated or rather overpopulated.   We may not have dumping of trash (or unwanted pets) anymore but it has been replaced by constant traffic noise, lots of it.  It is a challenge to get my mail, only safe during low traffic hours. 

 

OK, no more compalaining, not even about high humidity & temps.

Good Afternoon, Peeps!

@Frozenoem , @LaDolceVita ...Our little borough has bulk article pick up on the first and third Wednesday of each month. However, we have to go to Borough Hall to PURCHASE a permit in order to put large articles at the street!

And of course no empty paint cans, propane cylinders, TV's, computers, or other stuff of that ilk are allowed.

Getting warmer here...right now it's 80! It will probably go a bit higher. I can feel the humidity creeping in, too.

Finished my Ebay listings so now it's time to package my 2 sales for the post office tomorrow.

Have a pleasant day! N.
