Me too ! I absolutely LOVE

Me too ! I absolutely LOVE cold weather and love to cook chicken soup and bake apple cinnamon pies . Can't stand July

Cool grey weather.

I also love it. I could gladly eliminate June July and August from the calendar except for the shorts and bikinis, I'd miss those. Otherwise I love a nice cool grey day, it sort of makes me feel like anywhere I go im not under the spot light and wherever I'm at I'm with the person that's with me and were in our own cozy, intimate little environment away from everyones spying eyes. Even out shopping, imagine that! Id sit and lay around with you and eat your home made chicken noodle soup (love that stuff) and pies (yummy) and watch fun movies with you all day long. RRrrrr. Cool grey days, are if you think about it, actually hot! Good day. Jpol.

Not even close!

According to the rain and temp chart it shows normal rainfall for June (Northern Ohio). Also said cooler and drier. By mid June we surpassed the 'normal' rainfall and ended up having the 4th wettest June on record. Flooding, storms, wind, hail... Farmers here couldn't plant. Average Temp... 69???? Try 80-85+

Yup. We just had nearly a

Yup. We just had nearly a week of extreme heat. We've had a lot of rain this spring too, making planting late.

To be fair, predicting is not an exact science.

Birthday

My daughters first birthday party will be September 14th ? And I wanna have it outdoors do you think it will be warm enough to ?

Birthday??

Destiny, I'd say go for it, but have a backup plan just in case. These predictions seem to be WAYYYYY off... Good luck with the party.

Winter's Schedule

I love seasonally appropriate weather. I just need winter to come on time so it can leave... ON TIME!

Long range weather

Well, I looked up the weather for the end of June. Planned a Surprise Birthday BBQ for my mom. 20 people coming over. Long range forecast said “sunny”. Hmmmmm?! Nope, cloudy and thunderstorms. So, I guess I will go on what my grandfather used to say, “ when I get up and look out the window, it is what it is.” I love Farmers Almanac, but long range weather predictions, not working for me.

October

Any idea what we can expect for October temps this year? 2018 was cold cold cold. 2017 was beautiful. This summer has been so cold I am worried it could mean a cold fall.

Should have planted in feb/march

The signs were all there in February and March I told everyone to plant. Everyone thought i was crazy. Now everyone is coming to me as Im harvesting daily and my corn is well above stomach height!

Watch the weather outside and stop going by online charts.

Im also going to say this now. We will have more rain but then we will have DROUGHTS this summer. Fill those rain barrells NOW!
