WX is starting to get to me.

Seriously, what is going on with the weather? This is definitely the crappiest June weather that I can remember in a long time. The other day, someone mentioned to me that this has been the coolest and wettest June since 1903. I'm not sure that's accurate; but it sure seems like it!

The weather has been cooler than normal, with the nights being downright chilly! And it seems like it has just about every day this month. Not comfortable or pleasant outdoor QRP weather by a long shot.

I'm not like Steve WGØAT or some of these other guys who like to go out and operate no matter what - freezing drizzle, blizzards, deluges, etc. I'm more of a "sit at a picnic or camping table in the warm sunshine" kind of guy.

The five day forecast for this area doesn't promise much of an improvement on things, either. I just hope the wet holds off for Saturday morning so I can get a few hours in at the Hamfest. This Saturday's event may be the only Hamfest I get to this year. I'm going to be mighty disappointed if it turns out to be a washout!

Anybody have any plans for Father's Day? I'm hoping to get away without doing too much of anything "chore-like". Please keep in mind that this coming Sunday night will be the monthly Run For The Bacon - Flying Pigs QRP Sprint. Should be a nice way to finish out the weekend.

    You are sure right about the weather. It rained buckets here in central NY last night and today. Hi temp in mid '60's. Stinko!. Think I will give the FP event a shot. Probably won't submit log but hand out a few points to others.

    Not the 65 degrees. I like it cool. I even like it cold! It is day-after-day without sunshine.
