Almost forgot to check in today. Yesterday I had a great afternoon walking around Boston. The weather was spectacular with sunny skies and a high in the 60s. Had a nice evening networking with science communications specialists. Today's weather was not as warm but still sunny skies. Unfortunately, spent most of the day indoors for meetings. It was worth it though. Great idea sharing and planning for future outreach activities. I wrap up my short visit tomorrow.

Sunny and 59F / 15C. Was in the low 70's over the weekend. But today is still well above normal temps.

On tap for today: AM yoga here at home, took Teresa (our youngest greyhound) to the vet for a dental procedure (update: she had 6 teeth removed but according to our vet everything else looks great! Last dental she 13 removed!), breakfast, work, strength training at the Y, and more work. We'll pick up Teresa at 4:20PM. Tonight: Assuming our HelloFresh delivery arrives, it will be a HelloFresh dinner.

Have a good work week gents!

Today's high: 52F. Lake level: 9.98 and rising. It rained throughout the night, so it will be over 10 feet by this afternoon for sure. it's still raining as I write this.

It's President's Day, so I get an extra day off. Will be studying this morning and hope to get started on the tax returns. Nothing too exciting, but it all needs to get done.

Dreary, but not yet actually rainy. Will be able to get some walking in.

Today's high 50F (low 48F - I don't recall that little distance between high and low temperatures for a long time). Rain is supposed to start early afternoon. Lake is at 9.87 feet and rising. Rain is expected through Tuesday.

Laundry, studying, typical Sunday. Have a good one!

67F at 8AM, light rain last night with heavy clouds today with 98% humidity with a high near 80F.

Nothing special on tap today except resting from the last night's party. Limited my drinking to two vodka martinis but it not often I stay up late exercising . . . I mean dancing.

A beautiful day ahead here in south central MO, heading to a high in the low 70s. However, I'm headed to Boston for a meeting. Looking forward to spending a couple days in beantown doing some hands-on science activities tonight and a long meeting day tomorrow but should have plenty of time to get out and enjoy the city.

High of 66 today. Temp will not drop below freezing again until Tuesday a week and then just for a day. Washington Post says temperatures in the area are running 6 degrees above past averages this winter.

We planted Dikon radishes as a cover crop in one of our fields. The winter cold is supposed to kill them so they decompose in the ground and add organic matter to the soil. It is not working this winter so far.

We had two sets of guests Friday and Saturday, which is great but tiring in its own way. Now, after church, it is back to trenching and running water lines.

Have a great Sunday.

Much cooler today than anticipated. Got an early start setting up for Science Olympiad events before heading off to my retreat. Very fortunate to have some great students able to help out running these events. The retreat ended early so now some time to get in a quick workout.

Warmer this morning (62F) with fog. Expecting a sunny day with the high near 80F. Rain tonight.

On tap today: reconciling the home construction budget .We're about halfway on the project.

Dusting off the tuxedo for a Mardi Gras ball tonight with the DW. Mardi Gras season stated yesterday. Houston is a lot more tamed than New Orleans but it's a party just the same.

Have a great Saturday!

Rain throughout the day, high of 49F. Lake level 9.58 and holding steady. It will probably rise again to close to 10 feet with this storm, which is supposed to last until Tuesday.

Day off today and Monday, so I can get caught up with my studies. I have two more papers due; one is nearly completed and the other I need to start.

It feels like Saturday, but I'll say Happy Friday anyway!

Another beautiful day ahead with sunny skies and a high around 70. Yesterday was even warmer than expected and my schedule got freed up so I could run with the Thursday running group. I haven't run with them since September so it was great to get back at it. Felt great but I didn't quite have the stamina to make it all the way up the one steep hill. Next time I'll make it. Tomorrow will be a day long retreat so I need to figure out how to get in my workout. Sunday I'm off to Beantown.

31 degrees. Hardly any wind, thank God. High of 44 today. Low of 34 tonight.

After being worn out by working outside yesterday in the wind, I stayed up too late watching a rerun of yesterday's press conference. Amazing.

Ran into a problem with running pipes in the trenches so I have to dig a new run today to enter the basement at a different place. Slow and steady. Visitors for dinner tonight and then staying over. Different visitors Saturday afternoon. Good to have friends.

Have an excellent Friday.

Sunny day today. Heading to a high in the mid-50s. It's supposed to stay warm through the weekend but I'll be tied up in a retreat on Saturday and heading to Boston on Sunday. I'll make sure I get out to enjoy the nice weather while I can.

The sun is out -- good thing -- but the temp is 35F / 2C, and with a steady west wind at 15mph, wind chill is 25F! Supposed to get to the low 40's but will feel more like 30ish all day. Much warmer temps on the way!

On tap for today: Yoga for abs here at home, breakfast, work, run (most likely a treadmill run at the Y), and more work. Tonight: Good question. We took this week off from HelloFresh, and finished all of our leftovers last night. Guess it will depend on how DW and I feel after work.

Have a great Thursday gents!

Back to my early morning workout at the fitness center. Always feels good to get to my 10K steps before my 10 am class! Several meetings as usual but a little time to catch up on a few things. Our final chair candidate arrives today so another dinner tonight. So far I've been on my best behavior with these meals but tonight's restaurant makes some awesome deserts. I think I should be able to indulge a little without going over budget.

Today's high: 60F. Rain expected overnight, with on and off rain for at least a week. Lake level: 9.6 feet. With the new system, it will be rising again.

The mandatory evacuations around the Oroville dam have been reduced to advisory, so people are going back home but are supposed to stay aware. Offices at the other college won't reopen until tomorrow, and classes will resume next Monday. We have a lot of sympathy because that's what we had to deal with when we had the fires the last two years.

Weather in CA sounds ominous, Steve. Stay safe.

High of 51, low of 30, maybe some rain this afternoon on the eastern shore of Maryland.

Making beds in our new high tunnel today. Attending a workshop about growing cover crops on the eastern shore at Chesapeake College this evening.

Have a great Wednesday.

More seasonable weather today. Cloudy and windy 47F expecting a high in the mid 60.

Morning call with builder today. They're installing the roof trusses but construction has been hold up because of high winds. We're aiming to get the house "out of the weather"( by the end of the month. Here's an image from the garage view.

Skipping a fun thing to get some work done this AM. The afternoon is reserved to go shopping with my wife, and then to dinner, then home to a snug living room with a fire.

Happy Valentine's Day, guys.

Currently we're under a severe weather and tornado warning until 9AM. The storm should roll through by 1PM followed by a significant temperature drop. It's 67F which is the high temperature. Cooling to 47 degrees after the severe weather.

High today: 66F. Lake level: 9.7 feet. We need to get below 9.0 to be out of flood range. Unfortunately, the next storm is expected tomorrow or Thursday and will last a week.

The evacuations continue for the counties east of us, where the eastern part of our community college district is located. My co-workers aren't able to go home, but many of them had RVs that they've parked in the lot at the Colusa campus.

Skies are clearing here on the Delmarva, no wind (a BIG improvement over yesterday) and 29F / -2C, heading to the mid 40's.

On tap for today: AM yoga for abs here at home, breakfast, work, run, and more work. Tonight: Taking the evening off from bowling to have a quiet V-day celebration with DW. Nothing fancy, just a nice Tuesday at home together.

Happy St. Valentine's Day gents!

Today will be another day when it's hard to work on desk stuff. Will be out of the house most of the day and evening. A couple of medical appointments (routine - no problems) and a social encounter in the early evening. Need time at home.

Cloudy and cool to start the day but should be heading to the mid 50s. Another early workout due to an 8 am meeting. My bike is done so I'll try and pick it up this afternoon but won't be able to take it home until tomorrow.

I've been reading in the papers about possible dam bursts in Northern California, Steve. Very scary.

The wind is 22 mph here in Kennedyville, Md. It is blowing from the bay to our west. Gusts may go up to 65. High temp will be 44 today, low 29.

Other than normal chores, I've just been hanging out this morning, reading the newspapers online, and listening to the wind blow. In a few minutes I'll leave for my annual eye exam.

Have a good Monday, especially if you are beginning a new job.

Cooler today 67F and warming up to the low 70s with a rain storm rolling in this afternoon.

Nothing special on the schedule today. Early morning walk done, back exercise this morning followed by a trip to the gym for cardio and weight training. Reviewing proposals for HVAC system on Lake Lure house.

It's Monday - 'nough said

Today's high: 63F. Lake level: 9.8 feet and holding steady. It needs to drop a foot to get back below flood stage.

The Lake Oroville emergency spillway is at risk of failure, which could send millions of gallons of water flowing into the neighboring communities. The town of Oroville could be under 100 feet of water if this were to happen, and communities just a few miles away could be under 12-15 feet. Oroville was one of the lakes we looked at before deciding on Clear Lake to purchase our home. I liked the idea that this was a natural lake, not manmade. It was the right choice.
