    I was in Germany in 1987 so missed it. Today here near Anderson, IN was great. Mid 70s with a nice breeze. Had to get the yard mowed because rain is in the forecast for the next 4 days. The guy with the hay field behind me is ready to do his first cut and bail but it takes three straight days of dry weather after the ground is dry enough for the equipment and we just haven’t been getting that.

    I like it when it is room temperature outside.

    Heavy rain here today with more to come apparently. I don’t like the looks of this at all! I’m afraid that some people that live in the lower areas around here may be in for a lesson about what the folks along the Mississippi valley have been dealing with in the next couple of days. In five hours or so the water in the low areas around my house raised to a level it normally it takes a good two days of rain to get to. Large areas of the field across the road that is several square miles in size they just planted weekend before last are flooded.

    Are you aware that Greenland has been having a record melting season in June?
