Thunder storms and rains last night.

Winter here has been drier than initially forecast due to a tropical dipole based near Indonesia apparently. Fortunately we have not seen to many frosts as a result so far. Ground is starting to dry out a bit, still soft but not waterlogged

Gentle rain today. Nothing like what Florida to North Carolina is facing with Isaias. Hurricane season isn’t much fun is it.

It's been really wet lately, rain every couple of days, fog etc. Has been close to record cold for July (set in 2015). By comparison July last year had 15X the number of hours above 20 C. We have had heat though but it's like a roller coaster, scorching for a few hours or for a day or two then back to the chiller. Had a severe thunderstorm warning tonight as Humberto passing offshore has spun off a few thunderheads. The ground is already pretty wet and I'm concerned for the garlic which is harvest coming up next week, I could do without the thundershower this time around. But we'll see... Forecast for the week is to dry up and warm up, that would help.

We tied a record for 90°+ days in this area in July - 21 - and August is not getting better! 75° dewpoint, and 89° (92° high forecast), so the heat index is somewhere in the high 90s. Simply put, it's disgusting out there! This is why I tried to get most done out there yesterday and Friday, though there is always more to do. And Isaias is headed this way...I'll know more tomorrow.

Hot. Dry. "Scattered showers/thunderstorms" that don't put down enough rain to do any good.
