Northern Urbanland : Was out feeding the mosquitos yesterday afternoon and was surprised how excessively dry everything was. Seemed it stormed all of May, or threatened to, but I looked and not much rain this month, just that wind. Not off of average for year but it's misleading since it's going minus for the month and looks like for the summer.

I only "farm" hostas and ferns and other stuff that grows in an urban shade garden but that wind has got to be a killer for farmers if it is as bad as it has been in Minnesota. Seems it blows into at least the teens every day and more days than not gusts in the 20 and 30's. I 've had two neighbors have trees blow down and another with a huge oak branch break off and only one was during a storm. Haven't ridden bike this year yet when I didn't come back thinking "Damn, it's windy".

I can vouch for the mosquitoes in MN. Went fishing near Leech Lake a week ago and they were as bad as I have seen in 30 years. Beautiful weather but the mosquitoes made it very difficult to enjoy.

10:12 tee time yesterday. It was rough by the end of the round.

Today I get to look forward to sand volleyball doubles at 6:30. Heat index of only 96 then. Yay.

golfing in 100 degree heat and me do not mix well.

I golfed friday with a 8:45 tee time and was done a little after 1 and had a piss pounding headache. Only drank 3 beers and about 6 waters, too.

On this date in 1978 hail broke all 90 windows on the west side of the old Fenton high school and 4.5 inches of rain fell in 45 minutes at Humboldt.

And in 1979 10 tornado's hit northern Iowa the worst in Manson killing 3 and injuring 26. Another around Algona killed 2 and injured 34 while 10 were injured near Webster City.

Hostas are amazing. We had to take out two ash trees at my rental house, and they dug out the hostas around them and left them for me. Took me over a month before I got everything together and had time to put new planters in, so they were just laying there in the dirt pile for a long time. Came up this spring like nothing had ever happened.

Agreed, they are amazing. I wish I could grow them, but the deer take to them like crack.

Sentral of Fenton had some hot women in my day, absolutely crazy, but hot.

The wet spring just had my yard beginning to recover from the last 2 summers. Looks like itll be going down the crapper again with that forecast.
