Wow our weather is not as whacky as you guys, but it is off the charts.... It was 49 yesterday and real rainy.... Today it may reach 45 ..... WTF is up with that ?? At least it ain't snow... But it still sucks to say the least.....

News Flash........ It warmed up to nearly 80 so I took the cover off our pool....I''ll be away next week and I'm reading that it will warm up a lot. I want to make sure when I get home the pool will be ready for my family to swim.... Talk about crazy weather and climate swings ?  This is about as crazy as it gets ...

It's been in the 70's here.
Damn, Oklahoma is getting hit with the tornados.
We had some crazy cloud build up Saturday on Lake Tenkiller. But it poofed away.
Got to spend some time with #1JimmieFan and her family. That was fun.

I'm in Bath New York in the Finger Lakes for work and it is boiling here. It's in the mid 90's and sunny. I packed clothes for warm and cooler weather because I never can tell what it will be like when I travel. I know it's just as warm back home in New Jersey. Glad I opened the pool before I left because Ill already have a jump on it so my kids can swim.  8)

the tornado was a bit over a mile South of #1JimmieFan. I've been staying in contact with her. She is devastated by all of this. But, Okies are Tough and this is not their first rodeo. They will rebuild as they have in the past. They will need a lot of support and Prayer.

As far as the tornadoes in Missouri, they were South and East of the State from where I am located. My Cousin's high school was damaged and the first day of her Adult life was to begin today after her graduation, that had to be canceled, and no new plans for rescheduling yet.

We just have flooding to be concerned about. Water has topped the bridges and even debre has caused smaller bridges to collapse. But nothing really major here.

Just a lot of devastation to a 5 State area.

Mike was called out tonight to transport the RR Crews. The rivers are flooded almost over bridges. So engineers can only drive 5 mph. What would normally take 4 hours is taking 12 hours. These guys are wore out. Has to be stressful.

The speed restrictions on the tracks are because the tracks can be washed out. The Form D they are working under is to protect the crews. And I can only imagine how stressed the crews are. Tell Mike to be careful when he's out there transporting the crews.

Don't ya just love it when you get nice weather and accomplish a lot of stuff around the house ? I know I do and try and make the most of nice weather days. I can't cut the lawn today after all the rain we got yesterday.

Tomorrow is supposed to warm and sunny, so we plan on riding our dirt bikes in the woods with a group of riders.

We went from 87 on Wednesday to 65 yesterday and torrential down pours last night. It was 55 this morning then it warmed up to 74 today.  I can't believe the weather swings were having. This is not typical June weather for New Jersey.

I'm traveling to Milwaukee Wisconsin for Rail Road business next week and I hope the weather is nice. I need to have a little ME time after work and enjoy some warm dry weather. I really like the mid west a lot and the food they have to offer. The BBQ joints I have been to are the absolute best as far as I'm concerned.

Seems as though the RR business is booming right now. Zac is in Iowa for a few weeks, working at a fertilizer plant. then goes to Kansas. While Kenny is down in Oklahoma for 3 months, then they both go to Wisconsin for 3 years. So that's the plan anyways.

RR, You ever make it to KC, let me know. I will take you to the best bbq in KC.

Good to know they are working because the freight side of the RR is really busy.


I was supposed to go to KC the year before last but the numb nuts I work for canceled the trip before I could go. I still have to go there, but it will depend on them approving the trip.  :o

It was a real nice week in Milwaukee. The weather was real warm on Monday when I arrived. It cooled off a little on Tuesday and it got real nice and warm on Wednesday. Thursday when I flying home ,it was just so nice that I kinda wished I could stay another day and just veg out. When I flew into Newark NJ it was real warm and sunny. By the time I got home @ the Jersey Shore in the mid afternoon, it was just perfect to cool out on my deck and be thankful I got home in one piece.  8)

Lucky for me I'm home for the next month and I just wanna enjoy the summer...

I just knew it with the great weather we had earlier would come back to haunt me.
For the past week we had flooding rain fall and thunder & lightning and it being very humid.  :'( I can handle the rain the thunder & lightning but not the humidity, it was so gross around here that i had to run the AC. But today is a new day and it heated up to 86 , but you could still smell the moisture in the air, it's crazy.
