How's your weather?
« on: June 14, 2022, 06:09:15 PM »
In April, here in SW Ohio, it was rain, rain, some more rain, and a dollop of cold. Hard to find a day to shoot that target. May was a totally different story, several days of good shooting weather. Now this month is playing hob with getting any, much less three, of six, targets shot. Right now, at 6 pm, it's 90.7 degrees with 82% humidity. Similar temp yesterday with even greater humidity. Didn't see how hot it got today, but a little while ago a beagle was chasing a rabbit across my yard and both were walking! Highs the next four days are predicted to be 95, 96, 92, 97. How is it where the rest of you guys are?

I am in North Idaho for the next couple of weeks.  The weather here has been on the chilly side (49 degrees high yesterday) and generally have been having rain most every day.  Yesterday it did not stop all day.
The rendezvous we were planning on going to this coming weekend was cancelled due to flooding of the area.  The one we were planning on going to last weekend was reduced in duration from 3 days to a one day shoot.  Going to it we were sure it was going to be rained out, but the weather gods smiled down and it turned out to be a nice day after all.

Similar to the weather Nessmuk is having, and oddly enough more moisture than normal for my area... You can't plan a Range trip without rescheduling the next day because rain or wind, or both...

I think I've mowed my lawn more (so far this year) than I ever have in past years during the entire mowing season...

Wow, if you can, get out there and shoot! I hope to shoot this month's postal match targets on Sunday. Weatherman says high of 78, but since that is 20 degrees lower than what we have had for quite a while, I'm expecting a plague of locust to add to the fun. We'll see.

Well after weeks of rain it has finally stopped.
 Currently camping at a traditional archery fathers day shoot in the far north of idaho.
 No shooting here, atleast not BP.
 Hoping to get back in the game next week , my shop is finally complete and summer weather is on its way.

Been really ugly here. Hot in the mid nineties. Had a double derecho (look it up) come through 3 days ago. Really tore the place up. Power just came back on 3 hrs ago. House was 87*. Kinda like the old days before air except I was a lot younger.

Our weather in SE Ohio has been just like what the Miner '49er described.  Had a let up (into the mid 70s) yesterday and today, but NOAA predicts hot and humid again starting tomorrow.  I did a bunch of yard work yesterday, been loafing today when I could have been out to the range.  My get up & go seems to have got up and went! :laffing  :laughing  :luff:
