Last Weekend’s Meteor Shower

For all intents and purposes the meteor shower that is hard to say and spell (CAMELOPARDALID) was a complete dud.  There was caution though from NASA scientists and other experts that it might in fact be nothing to write to home about. The Earth was passing through comet debris that we have never passed before […]

Turning The Corner

Yes we’ve had some nice sprinkled in over the last month or so, but they have been few and far between and nowhere near what we were able to enjoy on Sunday. Highs across the area got back into the 70s for only the 4th time this year.   I think we will end up […]

Pattern Change: 70s And Beyond

We are going to get very close to a record in Rochester.   Sunday is our 204th day we failed to reach 70 degrees.  The record is 209 days set back in 1959/60.   I don;t think we will get that record, but we will come awfully close.   There will be a couple of […]

April was cool and one of the wettest, but what does May have to offer?

We certainly finished the month of April on a sour note, didn’t we? Given what we’ve experienced in the past week or so, most people are probably either breathing a sigh of relief or saying good riddance to the month even if it means we’re just flipping the calendar over to a new page, but […]

Rain Rain Go Away
