We went to the Keys for 17 years in a row during the last week of June — right into the heat and humidity of it. Why?

Tarpon migration.

It rained most of the day here yesterday and that means grass was a growing. Wednesday looks like the weather window to mow. Unfortunately, it will need to be a marathon mowing session with about 9 acres to do (I try to do the yard once per week and the two orchard areas once every 3 weeks, but sometimes the weather does not cooperate).

Everything I say can be fully substantiated by my own opinion.

We would like to tour the Keys sometime in the near future. Problem is, finding an RV Park that has weekly sights not charging arm & leg rates .

Mercy... sum them places do git 😵 'pensive during the "Snowbird" migration.

I hear ya on the mowing. Use to take me 1 3/4 hours just to mow the front and back yards. Trimming added another 45 minutes, pending trimming the ditch line. (another hour)

Then there was the soft spots, from too much rain, creating more time getting the mower unstuck.😡

Today the entire project requires 30 minutes tops, making for a very a happy camper. 😁

Beautiful day here in my (new) piece of Penn's Woods. Lots of boats passing by on their way to a launch. BlueBird Day with the temps in the low 80s and not much humidity.

😵 At 302 PM EDT, Doppler radar indicated heavy rain due to slow
moving thunderstorms moving into western Crawford County. Between
two and three inches of rain can be expected with these storms
between 3 and 430pm. This will cause minor flooding in the
advisory area.

* Some locations that will experience flooding include...
Meadville, Linesville, Harmonsburg, Pymatuning North, Pymatuning
Central, Saegertown, Conneautville, Conneaut Lake, Springboro,
Conneaut Lakeshore, Geneva and Hartstown.


😳 The weather dude hit it on the head. Right now the proverbial rock is being piszed on by the proverbial cow.

GOOD GRIEF.... 😳

That sucks about the garden Crappie. 
 
We've dried out and it looks like we've seen the end of that deluge.

I expect the PFBC be putting up signs "Designated Trout Waters". lmao.


Crappie Kennerdell is a nice area. We looked for several months but just couldnt find a place that said 'Welcome Home'.

The Allegheny is great fun..... river folks are cool. 😉

 Yeah, I like the area also. Dream Catcher, a couple of my boys & I did a float trip through the area some yrs. back & was very pleasant. I like the canoe thing anymore so it would work out good. Only 40 minutes from our place in Brady township & cheap taxes to boot.

Became almost a weekly thing during the summer, back in the 80s. We'd leave Franklin on a Friday Morning and float the river camping two nights on shore then exiting just past the bridge in Kennerdell on Sunday.

Toward the end, before buying a jet boat, we loaded our gear and canoe on a trailer using the steep ramp just upstream from the bridge.

Man... them was the days.

Watched an interview between TWC (drama queens) and a marine biologist in LA.

Drama queens tried making an issue with the "Toxic Algae Bloom" and got nowhere.

Biologist calmly explained the situation and wouldn't allow himself to be pulled into an
"😵MG we're all gonna die😳" scenario.

Jim "King of Drama Queens" (self proclaimed) Cantore couldn't wait to move away from the interview, and return to "TheEndIsComing" reporting.

Anyways storm tracking map says "Barry" could be coming for a visit to Penn'sWoods. Stay tuned.

Welp..... I'm thinkin maybe time to stretch the vocal cords a bit. Don't want to be out of tune if we need to start singing "Rain Rain GO Away".

Better yet, "Barry Barry STAY Away". ☔🌧🌩

YOWZER...... sumbody gonna be hearin bout that... 10-4!!!

Mopar funny you mentioned your boat being in the garage. I just came in for a break after getting my boat emptied of all the crap piled inside. I swear, my neighbors heard I was moving and unloaded all their junk. lmao.

Mercy, humidity and heat are unrelentless today so I'm taking a break before my next honeydew project. Need to install 7 feet of culvert pipe and widen the drive entrance a tad bit. Will help prevent putting a twist on the trailer axles when backing in. Also keep from hitting a power pole. 😬
