The Weather Channel says most of us will have a chilly Summer

Isn't that just great? After the Winter we've had, you'd think Mother Nature would cut us a break, but apparently not.

cool weather will be relief for the plants... after two years of intense heat and drought ...

i think you are ... carp ... blanked out ... let me find the thesaurus... lucky.. she was sitting in the kitchen having lunch.. lol ...


though you might not like a cool summer.. the plants will enjoy it .... more moisture.. less evaporation... cool nights to recover from a hot day ... etc ..

be the plant .... not the peep who will be out looking at the plants ...

have a great day ...


ps: i am giving myself a gold star for the word with the most syllables used today on GW ... lol ...

Well, if it's better for the plants, then that's okay with me.

Look, I don't want it steaming hot this summer, and certainly not with droughts and such. But 75-80 temps, with normal rainfall? That would be heaven...

It's been a blissfully cool Spring down here in Texas, if we get a cool summer (under 100 lol) it'll be so welcome by plants, animals and peoples - we have just roasted the past 5 years.

And I couldn't agree more, 75 - 80 with normal rainfall would be heavenly. :)

I would be estatic with our averages. Daily highs of 85-90 (depending upon the date), and average to somewhat above average rainfall would be EXCELLENT. As tough as it has been here since 2010 I know its been far worse elsewhere.

I really just want steady rainfall - not too much and not too little. Seems we alternate between 6 weeks with almost NO rain, and 3 weeks where the rain won't stop - making everything look "average" in the end, but anything but on a day to day basis.

If weather patterns continue w/a mostly NW flow, it prb'ly will be. However, most often that means a dry summer here. Rain would be shunted toward the west where the Gulf moisture flows north, then curving along the US/Canadian border where the westerly jet stream is.

Well, a dry, COOL summer isn't as bad as a dry, HOT one.
