    It's been a bad year for the campers, one good weekend since the state park opened. So far this week most of the storms have went south or east of us, we'll see how our luck runs next week.

    If that high stays off the east coast then we'll get some but the worst seems like it will hit the Northeast I-95 corridor.

    Since most of the rain missed us this week the Brook is down, so if we don't get a chit load each day next week it should be okay, if we do get a chit load each day it will be wild!

    Storms stayed south last night. Looks like your report zap is telling me to get the boat ready.

    Great 4 days last weekend for making hay. First cut got done @ the museum & the horse farm. Cut it in the morning, and baled at night. Both at 15% moisture. Shooting for 3 cuts. We'll see.

    Love the smell of fresh cut hay.

    here's to hoping they can get you done before the 4th. And also hoping for a dry end to next weekend......I have a 5 day weekend scheduled, I hate it when it rains on vacation! Rained most of the time for our trip to Cape May/Wildwood a couple weeks back.....

    The hot dry spell we just had was a welcome reprieve from the rain. We needed it to get the rivers down, my poor fleet of model planes have just been collecting dust in the garage since the river flooded 2 feet of water on the only access road into our airfield :(

    They are warning us of a repeat flood this weekend :( :(

    We expect major T-storms later today and thru the night. Time to check the batteies in the flashlights and gas in the generator.

    This could fill the Brook up, when I checked the water level last night it was down, that's about to change.

    * FLOODING IS POSSIBLE TONIGHT THROUGH FRIDAY AS MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINFALL MOVES SOUTH TO NORTH ACROSS THE REGION. HEAVY RAIN WILL DEVELOP BY THIS EVENING AND CONTINUE INTO FRIDAY MORNING... WITH 2 TO 3 INCHES OF RAIN FORECAST FOR THE ADIRONDACKS OF NORTHERN NEW YORK AS WELL AS CENTRAL VERMONT... WITH SOME ISOLATED AMOUNTS OF 4 INCHES OR MORE POSSIBLE... ESPECIALLY OVER THE ADIRONDACKS. THE REMAINDER OF VERMONT AND NORTHERN NEW YORK WILL SEE 1.5 TO 2.5 INCHES OF RAIN WITH SOME ISOLATED AMOUNTS AROUND 3 INCHES POSSIBLE. SOME LOCALIZED FLASH FLOODING IS POSSIBLE IN THUNDERSTORMS. HEAVY RAINFALL THIS PAST MONTH HAS SATURATED SOILS... AND RIVERS AND STREAMS ARE RUNNING WELL ABOVE NORMAL. THE WET CONDITIONS COUPLED WITH ADDITIONAL RAINFALL ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FLOOD THREAT

    I hope they're wrong too, just watches up here but that should change later this afternoon.

    All next week is forecast to be wet, just hope we do not get any high winds.

    Stay Safe

    Sort of makes you wonder if it isn't nature catching up after some winters with little snowfall.

    EDIT: As I was typing the above it started pouring rain here. Some thunder but not bad.
