I'm with ya. Southern Will County here and yes, weather and humidity is still too high for me too. So I guess this weekend will be riding the Harley cause that season is coming to an end quickly 🙃I look forward to the beginning of the season like a kid at Christmas, and this year was like getting up in the morning and not finding any presents. With the high temps and humidity in my area (North Central IL) deer movement has really been limited. I have been sticking to public land hunts because I don't want to burn out my better private land set ups during this heat. I have deer on the cameras I have set up on my private land, but almost all the movement is limited to darkness, with just a few hours at dawn and dusk. I know that is typical, but damn I wish the temps would drop, how about the rest of you- are others in my part of the country seeing/feeling this as well?
Yeah, and ... a White Christmas that used to be somewhat common never happens anymore. I've seen photos of them sawing ice blocks out of the Hudson River around West Point only a little more than a hundred years ago. The Hudson hasn't frozen since I can remember.In the garden state, for better then the last five years it seems we are a month behind what the weather used to do. I have to wait to put the garden in till memorial day because of rogue frost nights. In the fall, October has more September weather in it with most days being at or above 75 degrees. We don't seem to get our first frost till mid November anymore. As a kid, I remember some snow or flurries on Halloween.
I'm still IN construction and know that all too well! I schedule and plan the work for the crews and things rarely ever go as planned! The only way I survive it is to plan on things not going as planned, LOL. Makes me sleep better anyway.....I was ... in construction. Getting angry at the weather is a losing proposition ...lol
Very true words there! I believe I read when St Helens blew it released more carbon than all of mankind, ever! Someday everything we know will probably be under a mile of ice......After it all thaws!We, the planet earth remain in a cooling period. The polar regions are capped with ice. You won't want to be here when the caps disappear. It has happened multiple times in the last billion years. We continue to be refocused on the 100 year flood level, the 500 year snow depth etc....this planet has experienced much hotter and much colder temperatures, without the industrial revolution being to blame. Only if the New World Order leaders could blame the Solar cycles on mankind...
When I was a kid they used to saw ice blocks from Lake Hopatcong. That place only freezes when you get at least a week of bitter cold weather. Even then you could no longer use the ice for human consumption that place is a giant cesspool.Yeah, and ... a White Christmas that used to be somewhat common never happens anymore.
