My tomatoes are just standing still. While we have temps in the 80s & sometimes 90s at noon, they drop to 50s-60s at night. I have always heard and believe that tomatoes need temps above 70 degrees at night to grow well. Now while I know you folks with ice still in the water bucket in May are holding a grudge, enough is enough. Close that door-please.

If you want to see some weird weather look at this RAWS Weater station one mile from my house in a feild. It is the report of the last 24 hours and shows wind, temp, humity, fuel moisture and temp(for fire reasons) wind directions. These sites are all over the US and you may have one by your place to track the weather with. I will try to link it but if it don't work I will aslo post it. Mark H.

Mark H. It WORKED!!    Posted 05-15-2002 at 23:06:48       [Reply]  [No Email]
It worked I guess I just needed to put a title in. Check out our winds not bad today! It shows satained winds and gusts. The wind speed is a little higher at my house due to my view of the mountians and valley. This is why they have certain times they can put the tin on the Barn due to it. They have to keep it braced at all times. The wind can get 40 mph gusts for no reason. Search this site in the links at the bottom and you may find one near you. Mark H.

Hi, Mark, we, also have a local weather station, just north of town at the local airport, about twenty some miles from here, just phone and get a five or six day forecast, anytime. Comes in fairly handy at haying time. Now, if the danged weather will co-operate, so I can try out the baler I bought......saw a highboy with thirty six big round bales in town yesterday, going somewhere, at ninety bucks a bale......WOW!!!those cows had better have litters of calves to pay for that!!!! Have a gooder, R.E.L.

If you bring up the site and go to the bottom and click on "Region" it will bring up a map of the US with all these colored spot hold you curser over a dot that is near you and a message will come up where it is at. If that one is near you just click on it and the information comes in by satilite and you can put it in favoites. Lots of good weather info on the Goverment Weather site. We track it all the time to figure the fire danger! When fuel moister gets dow to 1,2,or 3 it is at flash point for the worst time for a lightning strike. You can track the temps by the hour too. We hope to get 50 ton at 65.00 a ton this year instead of the going 120-130.00 a ton rate for good hay. The hay is high around us. They start digging the holes for the barn posts Saterday and metal is coming Friday and the crew starts Monday so it looks like the Barn Raising is going to happen and I should have a new Barn by next weekend!!

I didn't do it, honest, started snowing here yesterday afternoon and didn't quit till sometime during the nite, about four inches on the van this morning when I arose..... power outage in town, as was here at home, on and off during the nite! [all this in west central Alberta}. AND, those clouds yesterday were comming in from the south east!!!!! Edmonton had good weather, no snow or rain!!!! Kinda think somebody in between has the door open.....sure not much around here for field work, yet!! Guess we will have to do like they do in the "old country" just let the weather do whatever it wants!!! Have a gooder, R.E.L.

Here in Minnesota they've finished spring plowing, tilled in the manure and are starting to plant corn & spuds. Today was too warm (high 70s) but it's been 40s at nite so no rush.

We're having a really late Spring this year. Our most recent "last" snow was last week. But the sun will prevail. Long as i don't have to use quotes around midsummer - heh heh
