Long Overdue Post

I've been very lazy when it comes to posting on my blog. It's time to get back in the saddle and posting again.

There really hasn't been any significant weather events affecting me locally since April, but there have been some in other parts of the state. The most interesting took place on June 7 when over 11 inches of rain fell on and near Columbus, Indiana. You can read about the event and watch video of the event at this address:

The second big event was a tornado outbreak on June 3. The tornoado destroyed several homes and a historic covered bridge in Moscow. You can read more and watch video at this address:

Overall, the summer of 2008 has been the opposite of 2007. This summer, we have had plenty of rainfall and mild temperatures. The high temperature for the day has not yet reached 90 this summer. The humidity has been high though which makes it "feel" hotter than 90.

Before long, the weather will begin to cool. I heard a cicada today, so that means only 6 weeks till the first frost!
