Greetings and welcome!

It has been a hot and humid week. The cement floor in the shop at work has been sweating and the folks that work outside have been too. I have seen low 90s on my car thermometer several times this week.

Today was one of them, but it cooled off a lot this afternoon as scattered thunderstorms hit the area. Watching the TV weather channel a lot of places that were around 90 are now in the upper 60s or low 70s.

Some of the thunderstorms were pretty good ones that prompted warnings, but I am not aware of any major damage. In Wausaukee from 4-5pm it was as dark as night and raining pretty good. The ditches were starting to collect some puddles when I left at 5:30. Here in Silver Cliff we had almost nothing. Again watching the TV, Shawano had 1.36″, Crivitz had 0.18″. If you got hit it usually brought meaningful rain.

The rain is welcome after a few dry weeks. It will help with fire danger and the big holiday weekend coming up.

The weather for the weekend looks summer-like. There is a storm approaching for about Monday, and the southern flow ahead of it should put us in warm and humid air Friday through Sunday. As a result there is a minor chance of a shower or storm brewing up, but nothing organized is expected until about Sunday night. Look for highs in the low to mid 80s.

We have seen the first glimpse of fall colors. There were a few maples on the way to Antigo Sunday that had a branch or two just starting to change. There was a tree near Wheeler Lake on F that showed a little color too.

I don’t have any new events for the weekend.

The radar is showing a big line of storms right over me, and I can hear it rumbling. I am going to get this posted before the power goes out or flickers. Have a good weekend and thank you for visiting!

Greetings and welcome!

I am sorry that it has been so long. August found me very busy and brought plenty of distractions. Even now I only have a couple of minutes to visit.

The weather has been a little cooler that is typical. We had some hot and humid weather and some storms, but nothing too hot or severe. More recently we have hit a cool stretch. Earlier this week we had a day that didn’t even hit 60 degrees. That isn’t very typical for August.

This weekend is the Marinette Co Fair, and it starts tonight. Here is a link.
