8/20/2017  CA-YL-21 CAYolo Near Normal General Awareness
Still typical hot, dry summer weather. I heard that July had more triple-digit highs than average, but I don't think August has had any yet. So, maybe just a little cooler than what's typical.

The Bog Turtles were spotted many times this week. The creek is at normal level and flow Various species of Fungi, mushroom growth has increased this past week, mainly under trees, in mulch beds, on lawns and wooded areas.The humid weather has caused lawns to remain wet much of the day the last several days contributing to the moldy rotten odor outdoors.Leaf Molds are visible on tree leaves. Outdoor molds such as Alternaria and Cladosporium are still high in this area affecting Allergies and Asthma.

For the week ending 08/13/2017, conditions were MODERATELY DRY. The 7-day moving precipitation total of 0.08 inches was 94% below the 8-year (2009-2016) average of 1.36 inches for this date and in the “severely dry” range; the 30-day total of 3.60 inches was 18% below the 8-year average of 4.37 inches and in the “near normal” range; and the 90-day total of 13.18 inches was 25% below average and in the “near normal” range. Temperatures became more seasonal, ranging from 87 (on the 16th) to 60 (on the 14th) degrees F, with average Hi/Lo temperatures of 81/65 F. Overall, the average high temp was 11 degrees warmer than last week while the average low temp was 3 degrees warmer. The yard remains severely dry. Baltimore Orioles and Rose-breasted Grosbeaks remain regular visitors to the bird feeders. Swamp Milkweed, Cone Flowers, and Joe-Pye Weed remain in full bloom and attracting many bees and butterflies. A yellowish tinge has become evident on many of the trees bordering the western shoreline of the lake, and many of the leave on the Cottonwoods have turned bright yellow. The surface of Crescent Lake is at least 70% covered with floating aquatic vegetation, the worst I have seen these invasive wees in the 10 years we've lived here.

Same ol', same ol' as weather drifts along in the last dog days of summer. Main excitement is the eclipse tomorrow. Temperatures warm, showers upon occasion, very little lake activity, few birds as they are molting, not may pollinators or butterflies as not many flowers in bloom. Farm crops being harvested, vegetable garden is on its last legs, leaves are beginning to fall. Lake level slightly fluctuates with the rains, now at 409.78'.

I submitted "near normal" because although it is very humid, and there has been rain either forecasted or happened over this past week; the amount of precipitation has not been significant AT THIS LOCATION. Agriculture: soy beans mostly this year in this area - seem to be doing well; although there was a report that "the moths" came early this year and could be doing damage to the crop // ENERGY: usage levels must be high since we have had heat indexes up to 105° and beyond over a couple days; the humidity levels make the high temperatures even more uncomfortable. FIRE: Level must be low considering the regional environment. PLANTS: As reported a couple weeks ago - trees that were beginning to loose their leaves prematurely have benefitted from the additional rainfall this week. Likely they may have damage, but at this point - are still alive. WILDLIFE: evidence of fox presence is starting to show up - but then, so too are sighting of rabbits. Barn Swallows are gone; the hummingbirds are eating voraciously. SOCIETY and PUBLIC HEALTH: first case of flu reported in our nearby town this past week. TOURISM: nothing has been adversely affected by weather systems, other than oppressive heat likely is keeping people indoors rather than enjoying outside venues WATER SUPPLY & QUALITY: appears normal - no reports otherwise

With .85" this week and 3.19" this month there is adequate soil moisture for all plant growth including heavy water users like the vegetable garden. Will need a nice rain in a few days to keep this level.

We have several large wildfires started by lightening a couple of weeks ago. The main road is closed and some people have been evacuated. One of them is creeping closer to my house, but is staying on the opposite side of the river unlike one to the east which has jumped the river and highway twice in the last few days.

Has been very difficult keeping my flowers from dying in the heat. Lost one Rhoady that I had just planted. There are several fires burning out of control in the area. Roads are closed and smoke fills the air. Water from my well tastes what I call "earthy" so did another treatment of chlorine in the cistern. Wildlife is not moving during the day and this is driving my dog crazy. Water basin for wildlife is empty every morning.

My count of measurable rain days against no-rain days have closed to within 20 days but still favors the rainy side. With only 0.18 of an inch in the last 64 days the heavy clay soils have wide and deep cracks. Pretty much normal for this time of the year. The smoke from wildfires threaten eclipse visibility in some areas tomorrow. Harvest and field work continues apace. Streams are at normal summer levels or slightly above.

We had about 0.10" of rain last week and now back to dry weather. North mill creek no longer has running water, just a few puddles in the low spots. Pasture is completely dried up and I have to now supplement hay for the cows. Had a few days of field burning smoke and a little from the forest fires but now the air is clear. At last count we had 19 wildfires going in Oregon, most not too big so far but some are causing problems. Gusty winds Friday pushed the Milli fire (SW of Sisters) to the east-southeast, prompting officials to invoke a Level 3 (go now) evacuation for an estimated 600 residents. My neighbors have a little more combing to do (rye grass and radish seed) to finish up their harvest for the year. Lots of people are coming for the eclipse and the roads are getting crowded.  
8/20/2017  PA-BR-2 PABerks Mildly Wet General Awareness
Rainfall totaled 2.78 this week, well above the normal of 1.1 for a seven-day period in mid-August. Drenching thunderstorms delivered 2.39 of it, almost all within 45 minutes, Friday afternoon. Ground returned to favorably moist Saturday as standing water drained or evaporated. However, numerous ponds of water persist over parts of central and northern Berks County where over 3 inches of rain fell Friday. Right here, the 24-month precipitation deficiency has dropped from nearly 20 inches early this year to only a few inches, and shorter-term running totals are now in excess. Thus, this week's heavy rain should have brought long-term drought to an end. The earlier severe to extreme drought ended with very numerous moderate to heavy rains and one snowstorm over several months while eluding extreme rainfalls or major flooding. Eastern and far southern Berks County continue to miss the really heavy rains, and moderate drought persists there.

I would say that we're near normal for the week considering the time of year. With half an inch of rain in the early part of the week, vegetation continues to be pretty green--more so than in a lot of Augusts in years past. Animals have enough to eat and crops on surrounding farms seem to be faring well. On the other hand, while digging post holes this week, my brother-in-law noted that the soil was bone dry 3-4 feet below the surface. I guess that means that although we've had good precipitation this summer, we haven't yet made up for the deficit last year. Maybe that's why Lake Hartwell is still 7+ feet below full pool?
