Any rain missed us, staying to our south. But by 3:00 PM clouds moved in and the temperature did drop - and that breeze that came up felt nice! Guess I could have mowed the lawn at my house… At least I thought about it as I sat on the porch… sweating… enjoying my coffee… sweating… and listening to the birds… and finally cooling off a little. By the time I went back to my son’s house I thought for sure we were going to get a thunderstorm but that never materialized. No complaints about that. Oh, Catskill is about 19 miles to the south of here. Even the Albany International Airport which is almost the same distance - but to the north - is seldom the same temperature as here. Heck, within 5 square miles there is usually many PWSs (Personal Weather Stations) that report differing temperatures, rainfalls, wind speeds, etc… The varied topography is why it’s so hard for meteorologists to accurately predict the weather in the Hudson Valley (mountains, river valley, mixed bag of hills and hollows, water bodies all over, and then the same on the east side of the river). I’m sure all the hot air from the cities north and south affect the weather also. Awww… one of the dogs has to go out!
