We've had a stretch of hot, humid weather, with only a couple hours rain in the past 4 weeks ... my lawn is brown. There have been several days where our temps have exceeded 40-degrees C (that's about 105 Fahrenheit). After a cool / damp June, we're on pace for a record high / dry July.

Re: Your Weather

we were dry as a bone for weeks - really needed rain - now we are gonna get a lot - too bad it wasn't just consistently spread out over a couple weeks

Hoping that we have no flooding

Re: Your Weather

I'm not looking forward to this trip to PA. I'll be up there Wednesday through Sunday. A lot of bridge crossings with two significant creeks and countless un-named ones, and every one of them will be a hazard.

Re: Your Weather

Looks like the Laurel Highlands where I'm going will miss the worst of it. I'll be going over the affected stream sheds on I-70 - with bridges well above the creeks. I won't be getting on to secondary roads until Breezewood, and then immediately heading for high ground over the mountains.

I'm sorry to see about my old stomping grounds around Lock Haven getting clobbered, and I've got a lot of friends in the Harrisburg/Carlisle/Camp Hill area (including present company).  Here's hoping your home and camp stay safe, Uncle Joe. It might be time to lash on a PFD before getting behind the wheel. Sheesh.
