Seems like we are stuck in a round about of rain. Every day seemingly has a fairly good chance of rain, especially on those day where I have to work. Working on a lake and getting caught in a quickly developing thunderstorm is never pleasant, and I try to avoid it whenever possible. I suppose if I had a boat that went 50 mph and could get me to safety quickly it would be great, but I don’t have that luxury. I do have a smart phone where I can observe what is coming and that works for days when a definite front is coming. It has saved me from not going into the field based on an inaccurate weather forecast, and also kept me from staying on the lake too long. However, on days were storms appear like popcorn it is less handy. When I am bent over planting all day I don’t really keep a close eye on the clouds. Anyway the weather has kept me grounded too often lately, but such is work in the field.
This weather pattern will eventually break, hopefully before summer is over.
Here is a video I shot while waiting out a storm early this year. A cool cloud rolls by at 0:28
