Anyone got sunshine?


Haven't had much in 2 weeks and the forecast is for clouds and rain for another week.

My flowers are punkin out and my mighty mule gate opener, which uses a 10 watt

solar charger..won't work...Need to mow but the snapper gets plugged in wet grass.

Dang! Guess I'll have to watch Michelson win another golf major....

Too damn hot for me (80s). Too hot to work outside!

2. Trade you some hot, muggy 80's for some rain.

We haven't seen a drop at my place in nearly 2 weeks.

3. Nope

this Kansas farm is muddier than it has been in years! Almost 5 inches last week and another week of clouds and rain....like you! I doubt our solar panels are helping much at this point but it is nice enough to not run the air or heat so that helps. You would think that in May with this kind of weather you could at least get a tornado or two around here to keep things moving, at least your heart.

Just think, when the sun comes out it will be nice for about 30 minutes in the morning then the sauna days come.

bet that when summer really hits here it will hit hard. ...😅

12. I am enjoying this weather.

I always long for rain and my crop is doing quite nicely in the long, cool wet spring. Brome grass grows very well in this and the last 2 crops have been disappointing. The horses and goats are happy in the cool weather too.

I just went over and looked at the drought map. It looks like we are good for a long while now. Enjoy the cool, green spongy now! It never used to bother me much, those hot and muggy days and working in it but at my age it had gotten harder and harder. I planned well, I should be done with animals in a few years since they are all really old. It was fun until I got old!!

14. Yup...I'll trade for some rain

I finally had to bust out the hose to top off the pool today.

Let it rain!

17. Going to hit 100F in another day or two.

Been holding off on the weed-whacking for a stretch like this, when the weeds are already nice and stressed. Rain would be nice, but I won't complain if it waits a little longer. Glad I am not like a lot of the people in my neighborhood who have been whacking down their trees left and right. At least the house gets shaded.

18. Funny you say that

I have neighbors on both sides of me whacking down trees, and a whole new development with whacked trees behind me.

What's the deal with that? I cherish the few trees I have. Let them stay.

19. Can't have their stupid-ass lawns with trees around.

The worst part is that those trees could be sequestering carbon dioxide to slow climate change. Hope their grass is worth the bigger power bills coming their way.

6. Yes. It's sunny and beautiful here in the southern Appalachians

of north Georgia. The cicadas are tuning up; they get louder as the day progresses, and practically deafening by late afternoon. We've had a cool, rainy spring, but the last couple of weeks have been very nice indeed.

7. Overcast with rain in the forecast.

I live in the Portland, Oregon area. We are gray today with rain in the forecast for the next 2 days. We are way behind in amount of rain for this spring, so any rain is good that will keep the Pacific Northwest green.

8. Hot and sunny in NE Ohio

Mid to upper 80s predicted for today and humid. Too hot and muggy to be outdoors, IMO. I just donít tolerate heat well.

The ground is as hard as a rock since weíve had practically no rain for 2 weeks

10. My old friend Mr. Sunbeam is here today in Albuquerque. The view from my bedroom window

is to the west and there's not a cloud in the sky. Yet.

It is Sun-day and a good day to rest, even if that custom is steeped in tradition that even predates
Christianity. There's a time to embrace tradition and a day to fight it. This is a good day for embracing.

11. Sunny and hot in Tennessee.

No rain expected this week with temperatures every day in the 90s. We donít usually see temperatures this high until well into summer.

I had to put sprinklers on the lawn and garden

16. Don't mean to gloat, but it will be a perfect day here, in SoCal.

The high will be 72, sunny, with a nice cool breeze. We have had a bit too much wind off and on, but otherwise, itís lovely.

Missouri,Kansas, Iowa. I am in KCMO and am so sick of the clouds and rain. I donít remember the last time we had a clear, sunny day this month. Iím used to it in the winter but we usually have more sun in spring.

25. hot and too damn dry here in west central floriduh

haven't had any measurable rain in St Petersburg for over 45 days.

I'm glad I'm wrapping up my garden and picking tomatos and peppers instead of planting. Hopefully things even out come September and the winter garden can go in.

P.S. Gulf of Mexico temp 84 degrees in the nearshore waters.

26. More Sun than normal in New England.

The tradeoff is a serious lack of rain.

32. North Florida - lots of sun for the last week, no rain

And no sun, temps over 90 F during the upcoming week.

There is a high pressure system settled over Bermuda. That means that this part of Florida gets sunny, dry weather. On the other hand, the way the winds blow, this tends to set up showers developing in the Gulf that move west over the Peninsula, giving them afternoon showers.

Since we had a very wet winter and spring, we can use some dry weather. But Peninsular Florida has been dry so regular afternoon showers would be great for them.
