At least you will get some rain. Could do without those wind gusts though.

Lowest barometer pressure 29.34 this morning. For a June low pressure, that has got to be very unusual for the Plains. More like a January event.

This season's whiplash continues. We were at 90.1 earlier this week (95.2 earlier this month) and woke up to 51.6 this morning.

Beautiful day yesterday in central Florida. Temp was 89 but DP's in the mid 60's and a nice north wind made it great. Unloaded 3 pick up loads of dirt and 2 pallets of sod and barley broke a sweat.

It's been a very cold and rainy June so far at my location. I've been running my pellet stove in the morning for the last 5 days. We had wet snow on the 7th. Yesterdays high was 52 while the high last December 22nd was 58. Winter storm warning above 5500 feet 100 miles NE of here. The heat turns on here like a light switch once the high sets up over the 4 corners region bringing the monsoon season to Arizona while cutting off the cold rain storms from the Pacific.

If you do Twitter, the MPLS NWS is reliving the 2010 storm. 600,000 without power state wide.

I did not have power for three days. Hijacked a generator from Home Depot.

Spent 8 hours bailing out my sump basket because my battery backup died. We still have the mixing bowl-We call it old faithful.

89 mph wind and 4 inches of rain.

I am curious about your battery sump pump backup. How long did it run before the battery died? I have a Wayne backup pump that has a 4 year old battery. I tested it last week after a rain and let it run for 8 hours. It was cycling approximately every 1.5 minutes and runs for about 20 seconds each cycle. My battery still showed 80% after 8 hours, but I wonder how quickly it would drop if I had left it running. It was bed time and I didn't want to chance it, so I plugged my primary pump back in.

In that house I had a this


The dumb thing I didn't do is to replace the battery after 5 years. So when that storm hit-it was 7-8 years old and only worked for a short time.  I then borrowed a small generator from the neighbor and it worked for a while. It quit and the wife and I bailed out the basket until my FIL showed up with a generator.

Most batteries will run 8 hours continuous and 3 days when cycled off and on.  That one ran for 3 days sporadically in 2005 or so.


When I was cleaning today-I found the bowl. It just does not feel right throwing it out after it saved us 1000's of dollars.

That's the backup to the backup! I hope you didn't have to throw the water too far, 2 qts at a time.

Wife dumped it into a 5 gallon bucket. I gingerly walked 10 feet to the laundry sink.

We haven't seen any rain here in Chicago for eight days. Stuck between two stationery weather systems. NWS Chicago has some encouraging words for us today:

"I suppose if a bird were to flap its wings hard enough, a stray shower or two may pop up across the area but by and large dry conditions are expected today."

May be the wrong place for this.

In 2012, 23-27 June, we had a 5 day period of temperatures I won't easily forget here in NW KS. Culminated on 27 June with a national high temperature of 115. Don't want to repeat this again.  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

Time for the monsoon, 111F yesterday, 112F today. Not only, the wildfire just north of town in the Catalina's is approaching 100,000 acres with little containment and about 1000 folks involved fighting it. =D>  The only thing that will stop it is rain or lack of fuel. The former would be preferable.

A few areas in western Wisconsin had 8 inches of rain. Floods, washed out roads.

We have a heat advisory for hot and humid conditions.

I find it funny that Minn gets heat advisory for 90F with humidity and Florida gets warnings for 50. Both telling people to stay inside.

Hit 96 today. Hottest of the year so far and tomorrow is supposed to be the same. Dew point has been sitting at 70 so it hasn't been as bad as it could be.

It's about time for the Japanese beetles to show up and strip my birch, linden, crab and other tree and shrub varieties which are looking great right now. I hate those damned beetles.
