My first vacation in years and the bullseye us right where we'll be.
Earth transforms sunlight's visible light energy into infrared light energy, which leaves Earth slowly because it is absorbed by greenhouse gases. When people produce greenhouse gases, energy leaves Earth even more slowly raising Earth's temperature. http://www.howglobalwarmingworks.org/

Last night was probably one of more warm, humid nights of this summer so far.  Felt like a sauna outside around 3 a.m. when I looked outside during a downpour that woke me up.  Hopefully, well have a few days of more comfortable humidity levels by Sunday & Monday as another northwest flow briefly sets up.

I love the long days of summer.  The twilight lasting to almost 10 p.m is something I enjoy.  However, there have been many summers I wanted to see end due to the oppressive heat and humidity & lack of rain that withered anything green.  2007, 2011-12 & 2016 come to mind.  Its good to have a summer where I can actually enjoy the long days and not wish them away for cooler, autumn breezes.

We need about 5 years of oppressive heat and humidity to make up for this disastrous summer.  ::)

I'll believe it when I see it. The GFS has been consistently building heat ridges after truncation, only to lose them. Summers like this rarely flip this late in the season.

Not that I want oppressive heat, or even above-normal heat of any kind. But I would like some consistently dry weather, and if that means heat, I'll take it.

I know, right! I've always wondered what drives the mindset of people who root for rain everyday. I imagine them with translucent skin, sitting in front of their computer incessantly staring at weather models and never venturing outside to enjoy the fresh air.   :)

Perhaps aliens really have landed from a distant water world.   ;)

In all seriousness, it really hasn't been as bad over this way in terms of too much rain.  June was about half of normal here (2.06").  We just boarded the rain train as of this week.  After several deluges this week, I think we're good now. 

Sometimes the rain spigot shuts off in these types of summers about mid-August.  Hopefully for water logged areas that will be the case this year.

Looks like an awesome evening.  Sunshine in abundance, and despite the humidity, a good breeze is blowing for a change.  Time to stoke the grill and spend the night on the deck under the oak tree listening to the tree frogs (not to mention the chorus of the Katydids--   https://youtu.be/ybKV-7z0jGc). 
 
I sure can't complain about this summer so far, especially with 2016 still fresh in my memory!

Happy Friday ya'll !

We priced a sprinkler system this spring- more than I wanted to pay, at least right now. So, I had to commit to keeping the grass watered. It's been nice to not have to do much of that with frequent rains lately.

Looks like a decent day to take a drive into southeast TN and figure out a place to view to eclipse next month.  A lot depends on the weather that day, but right now heading down Hwy 411 toward Madisonville or Tellico Plains.  Hoping to find some out of way place on a back road, as the major highways will probably be congested.

Late evening sun yesterday.  The July sun sets slowly...and it was a perfect evening to enjoy it.
