  1. Ducks. Fun story. Our duck flock has increased dramatically during the pandemic. Our ducks hatched 11 ducklings and then my mother in law has bought us 4 ducks of various breeds during these uncertain times. Between the ducks and chickens we get about 6-8 dozen eggs a week, which have been nice to give to friends in these challenging times.

  2. I thought I'd also mention that this is the least problematic allergy season in recent memory. The rain has been super helpful. This is generally the peak of the year right now. But zero issues for me.

  3. Latest CFS ensemble members go a little crazy, down into super-Nina territory Basin is pretty cold right now. Latest anomalies as of June 10 show more significant cooling Region 4: 0.0C Region 3.4: -0.6C Region 3: -0.9C Region 1.2: -0.8C Coldest we've seen at this juncture in the season in a long time.

  5. I’d wanna live in Tim’s dank, dreary disaster of a climate a thousand times over before I’d wanna live in your shithole of an armpit. I would visit, although it sounds like you’ve already got a Full House minus the Olsen Twins.

  6. That was such a terrible model pullback...yet we still got 1.5” of snow so not too bad. Niña is coming so I think we will do better next year.

  7. Definitely. It’s been about eight years since we’ve seen a significantly wet pattern this late. Which is a pretty remarkable stretch.

  8. At least it’s not a sea of orange and red this time! Notable improvement over the last two weeks, as well.

  9. Omg this. That milky white hazy sky. Ugh. Tim’s deep, radiant, blue sky is an envy of mine when the dog days roll around. It’s why I tease him over filters and stuff. Haha.

  10. I'm still alive. I've experienced hotter heat indexes than that, although your naked in saunas. I regularly use a sauna even during the summer due to it's great health benefits. Excellent way to detoxify your body of bad toxins.

  15. And there’s a strong trade wind burst on the way for the last week of June, onwards into July. Definitely going to see more ENSO cooling after the solstice this year.

  20. That's a crazy stretch of dryness. Growing up, I have memories of frequent rainy Junes and the fires were rarely as bad as we've had in the last several years.

  22. This bodes well for the fire season. I know it isn't rare to have decent precip through mid June, but it doesn't happen every year.

  23. Right but Oregon still in severe drought. We need more rain the second half June but it looks to dry out. Drought will get even worse

  29. The GFS/UKIE very similar in the precip pattern through this weekend, while the Euro remains on its own and farther north and not as widespread.

  30. Did the Cascade Loop today for giggles. Washington Pass still has plenty of snow for this time of year. Stevens Pass does as well. Hopefully this portends well to another good winter for our mountain range. It'd be nice to see some reversal from the 20 year trend, if only temporary.

  31. Managed to get a fair amount of yard work in today! Currently 53 degrees, .06” on the day.

  32. Appleton, WI once had a dewpoint of 90 with a temp of 101. The heat index was 148°F. Apparently Melbourne, FL once had a dewpoint of 91 but that’s a somewhat dubious record.

  33. It is both. To illustrate, we've all seen your gorgeous pics of the blue skies in the summer, fall, etc. Imagine if you had a several day stretch where the sky color never changed. I observed that there. There were tstorms that you could never see unless the sky flashed. It was sunny, but also cloudy. You just couldn't tell other than you have to find A/C immediately.

  34. It definitely would have worked that day. Redmond got to at least -30 and Bend somewhere in the -20's.

  35. That's crazy high. As I've mentioned before, I've been in the DC area 3 times before, all during July or August. It is completely gross and also disgusting. I've always wondered what the highest DP here ever recorded was. I'm guessing 73 or 74, but I have no idea how to look that stat up.

  36. It's actually not as hard as some people think to cook an egg in super hot outside temps. The keys are to have hot weather, blazing sunshine, and some black asphalt. You also need a black frying pan and a glass lid. If you're in Arizona, just put them anywhere.

  37. Phil said it would be somewhat like 2016. That July was average temperature-wise here with no big heat. There was a minor heat event at the end of the month, other than that it was all 70s and 80s in Portland.

  39. I fully believe the record of 134. Despite being 86 years ago, the science didn't completely suck back then. They had some high quality mercury thermometers in play.

  40. 0.56" here so far today. Birds seem like they move faster as they're able to hydrate at all the puddle water sources.

  41. There are some large scale similarities to 2016 at the moment. But it’s not a perfect match either, particularly over the subtropical NPAC, which was on fire that year (and also in 2017).

  46. What does the JMA seasonal have to say for the rest of Summer??? The general theme is normal temps and precip with the exception for the southern tier of our Sub that looks wetter than average and a fast start to the Monsoon across the 4 corners where they need it. There is a growing drought in this region so any rains will be welcomed. July... Aug... The 500mb pattern replaces the western trough with a ridge next month and into August across the PAC NW which would generally produce a NW Flow. Might have to deal with a pattern the produces "ridge riders" or long-live
