We have also had some wacky weather. Yesterday afternoon was gorgeous, we sat on the deck rather than doing yard work, then last night a wicked thunder storm rolled through. Ma nature put on quite a light show. Another down pour this afternoon, I mean it RAINED  :o Fields are flooded, the farmers are at a standstill. I can imagine the condition of the logging roads.

The local community has declared a state of emergency, streets are flooded. The grocery store is just finishing up a major reno, I guess they will be tearing it apart to fix water damage. :'(

Yesterday it rained when it felt like it. Today is 52 and the wind is blowing. Showers today. Nothing but clouds and fog my way.

Sun just started to open up the sky here this morning.

Still wet and cold here but the flooding has subsided. We are supposed to get warm and sunny this weekend but with lots of snow in the mountains we could see more problems.

Cold rain here Sunday night into Monday with showers and cold breeze. Now in a couple of days it is going to be 90. Go figure. :D

I still predict a cool wet summer, it has all the signs. I would rather be wet from rain than hot sweat. ;D

The sun is out. Might even stay out for more than 5 minutes.  ;D  Lots and lots of blue sky.

It's a trap! That blue stuff and light are there to lure you out in the open and then just as you get used to it, it will cook you!

92 F here today, blistering hot. Good thing I had a truck appointment for tires and vehicle inspection to avoid that heat.  Too hot too quick. ;D

I just knew it was going to do that. 50 and rain right to full sun and 90 and the flies are hatched out.

Kind of on the cool side with that NW wind, mid 50's. But put in the potatoes and onions today.  Three 20 foot rows of taters, more or less.  Spanish onions sets, not many but enough. I grow'm like baseballs. ;D

The only things we have growing are in my stinky-oak boxes. Garden was just about dry enough to till and the rain started again. Tomatoes, onions, a few strawberries, a few bean plants and even a couple of corn plants. Don't expect the latter to do much in a box, though.

What will you do when your veggies end up tasting like that oak smelled?  ;D

Been cool/cold and wet UP here. Had frost and freeze 3 of the last 5 mornings. Low of 24 the one morning. Daytime highs have been in the upper 30's to the upper 40's with 3.5 inches of rain in the last 3 days and for a brief time we even had a little sleet/snow.

Grass is green but not growing, trees still are just in the bud stage... I have a few weeks worth of hay left for the cattle, hopefully things change quick so they can go out onto grass by then...
