What is your weather like right now? 2020 Edition

Hi all!

We are enjoying a cooler day after a couple of weeks of really hot, dry weather. We've had a nice light rain today, which is great for the garden.

We do have Hurricane Isaiahs to look forward to It's expected to be a tropical storm by the time it gets here, so we're not too worried. Been through this many times before.

Looks like it will hit Montreal Island tomorrow. That would explain the rain in our forecast.

Marking myself safe We got lucky - no damage and we never even lost power. Hope everyone else who is in its path fares as well.

It looks like we're on the tail end of this weather event, although the wind is still vigorous. All the trees within view are still upright, so that's a good thing! The wind was so brisk the poor little hummingbirds were being pushed backwards when they would approach the feeder. I hope they get to eat enough today.

Looks like we are going to get a fair amount of rain from that storm, here on the Island of Montreal.

*BUMP*

We're having some very nice weather this week - it's cooler during the day - low 80s and meh on the humidity. Light rain on and off for the last few days.

I'd like to hear from our West Coast friends about how things are going for you. My dad's house in Auberry, CA, was destroyed by the fire around Shaver Lake east of Fresno. The entire town was evacuated the day before, so he and his wife are safe. I have family in Chico and the mountains near there. They have had to evacuate before - not sure about now. There don't seem to be any fires near my sister in Temecula.

Thinking about everyone in the danger zone out there

We've had a pretty good week as well. Except for yesterday, when we had a LOT of much needed rain. Today and the next few days will be great if a bit cool.

I'm, truly sad to see this. I lived in the Fresno area for 25+ years and the Shaver Lake area was our camping playground. Auberry was and I hope still is, a wonderful place. We have friends impacted by these fire disasters.

Happy that your dad and his wife are safe.

Ross
