Just a quickie.
Everyone has been complaining about all the rain in June, and admittedly we've had many overcast days that certainly threatened rain. Friends downstate have been (figuratively) drowning in all the rain (over 9" in under a week). But here in little ol' Newcomb we didn't even make 4" in all of June! Nope, our grand precipitation total was (drum roll please): 3.83"!
Newcomb seems to be situated in a weather bubble. It's like we have an invisible dome over us that shunts the weather to the north or south of town. Not that I'm complaining too much, for it does reduce shovelling in winter, and it may help us avoid some of the really strong storms that cruise through in the summer, but it would be nice to get a bit more rain sometimes.
And if it's not going to rain, then we could use some sunshine! At this rate my corn isn't even going to come close to "knee high by the Fourth of July" this year! Well, maybe to a grasshopper...
