Here comes REAL summer

Seems while I was at a sunny art fair Saturday, Columbus was in the news with funnel clouds being filmed.

Yea - NOAA had a big FAIL on their Saturday forecast as Deforest had a few drops of rain and then pretty sunny most of the day . . . NOT that I'm complaining.

Columbus dodged a bullet Saturday night as a pretty big storm zoomed past and missed us by 10 miles and Beaver Dam received 0.60 inches of rain in a quick storm.

And last night a very fast moving storm hit us with 0.09 but took down a tree which like the game Mouse Trap took down power poles and lit them on fire.

Seems that storm produced a HUGE amount of double rainbow images in the internet from Baileys Harbor to Miller Park.  It's actually amazing how many rainbow images were on Facebook last night.
Took this from my back yard.



With weather on my mind - HERE COMES SUMMER!!

Look for heat indices nearing or topping 100 this next weekend.  I know I'm excited as I'll be in the middle of Nebraska and you know they love heat there (neighborhood watch has been notified) and will be in Denver by this time (in 7 hours) a week from today and then Winter Park an hour later.

I need train/tunnel shots so this is a business trip.   ANYWAY

The heat will start Friday with Saturday being the hottest at 93ish (the forecast temp has been rising)  with a VERY HIGH dew point (low 70s) so it's going to be REALLY muggy!

We have all seen this you tube video right? The "Laughing Chewbacca Mask Lady"

Well - she has made $450,000 dollars from YouTube for this.  I guess 5.5 million views makes you some money.

According to Bloomberg Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows” was the biggest movie this weekend and with the success of “The Angry Birds Movie,” as Bloomberg says - It appears to indicate that Hell is empty and all the devils are here.

 Donald Trump - I have nothing to add.  I seriously believe he is unstable!

In case you missed it Friday - DO NOT RINSE OFF YOU DISH'S before you put them into the dishwasher.

Rinsing will make you dishes dirtier.  The soap you use will not activate it's enzymes if it does not find sufficient amount of dirt  and your dish washer sensor will see no dirt and not use enough water.

They work in tandem.  We loaded our washer last night with really mucky dried on stuff on the dishes and they came out spotless.  Even dried on cheese was gone.    Let science do it's work.
